Letter: Stop penalizing success!
Re: “Unemployment strips segment of society of its dignity,” Jan. 15
Yes, ma’am; well said. We are rapidly becoming a society full of whiney, working-age, useless nonproducers. All part of Nobama’s -- and the Commiecrats -- plan to “fundamentally change” the USA.
Unfortunately I don’t see any improvement on the horizon, only more of the same and getting worse by the day.
Answer: Stop penalizing success! Let the big companies do business so the small companies can grow. Stop worrying about what the CEO of “Whatever Corp.” makes in a year. (Where is your nose?) Those people should be who we look up to as examples of success and hard work. If you want more, then work harder, improve your education or employment status, take a risk.
Nobody “gave” those CEOs what they have; they earned it by sacrifice, education, audacity, taking risks, and talent. Step up, take control, and improve yourself. Stop voting for “free” handouts. Nothing in life is free.
What you’re willing to settle for is all you’re ever going to get. If you settle for less than you are capable of, then don’t whine about what others have.
When people have jobs (security), they spend money (consumer confidence), and things are produced, transported, assembled, and invented. The economy moves forward. Jobs are produced. It’s a chain reaction that only big government can stop.
Every government job created just to create a job is detrimental to the whole; only private sector jobs produce revenue.
Small companies support big ones, big companies support mega corporations. That is how jobs are made.
Unless you have worked your entire adult life and paid into Social Security, earned a pension, or invested wisely, then nobody owes you anything!
