---- — Dear Editor:
Readers familiar with some of my past offerings are aware of my belief that our beloved country is circling the drain on a downward spiral, and that one of the chief reasons is the government handing too much money to people who did nothing to earn it.
A good friend, who is totally reliable, passed on this little tale, which he heard from the person who actually observed the situation.
It seems that a woman shopping with food stamps placed a large package of dog food on the check-out counter. Upon being told by the clerk that she could not purchase dog food with food stamps, the woman marched back to the meat department and returned with a large package of hamburger patties.
Tossing the hamburgers on the counter, she loudly declared, “He likes hamburger better anyway!”
Kinda makes you want to puke, eh?
In a similar vein, a good neighbor told me that his dad had these words of wisdom about welfare:
* The first time you receive it, you’re really embarrassed.
* The second time you’re embarrassed, but not so much.
* The third time (and forever after), you’re owed it.
Best regards and kudos to all hard-working folks, and to those who aren’t working through no fault of their own,
