I find it practically impossible to believe that the majority of this nation can’t see the incredibly dark future that is hanging over this country, the austere and strictly regulated lives we are passing on to our children and grandchildren for generations to come.
When I write something like this on my Twitter account, I usually get a tweet or two that tells me just how dumb I am, and that the moves Barack Obama is making are for the benefit of the little man, and that all I care about is rich people and the tweet is usually salted generously with four letter words.
Well let me make a couple of statements. I come from a blue collar background; I have worked in the log woods, bright leaf tobacco fields and a factory, all for minimum wages.
I have worked at something since the summer I was 10 years old. I have never drawn an unemployment check and the only government assistance I’ve ever had is a social security, which is not assistance at all but money I have paid in and am still paying in.
Everything I have ever accumulated is by the blessings of the God I serve and the sweat of my brow, not to mention sacrifice and the kind of tenacity you have to reach real deep for.
I have employed 30 people for over 30 years, tax-paying citizens who don’t collect food stamps or draw an entitlement check.
I believe in treating my employees the best I can, and many of them have been with me for over 30 years.
Now let me ask you a question: who deserves the fruits of their labor, the employees themselves or the federal government?
If your answer is the federal government, then you are a lost cause and may as well stop reading right here.
