It's About America's Bait Society Thing

Dear America,

local humor...
"Too many squirrels become a nuisance. 
They quickly grow dependent on handouts, 
lose their fear of humans 
and boldly approach them, 
their picnic areas and coolers 
looking for food."

thank you, San Diego Union-Tribune for that earth-shattering reality check.

ya think?

of course, when putting that same concept in the context of federal/state welfare programs, suddenly common sense gets overrun with political correctness run amok.

but must confess, after a drive thru the In N Out, in Carlsbad, many a time (best burgers on the planet, btw), feeding a squirrel a french fry, or two, just seems so natural...in the natural.  

but I digress, 
as we touched upon just yesterday, a growing of government dependency is just as much a problem of the government, itself, as it is for the needy recipients.  Our federal bureaucracy doesn't know how to ween itself off of an annual cost of living increase in every department...It doesn't recognize that once a dependency on government is fed even the tiniest morsel, for everything from bread and butter to medicine to cell phones to whatever, naturally, all God's creatures have been given a taste of the good life; an ease to the daily strife and grind of foraging for food -- that would otherwise be accomplished by means of our labors of love and hard work --  has suddenly come courtesy of the long arms and compassionate heart of a socially re-engineered government.  

Good will and free food for all.

Which quickly reminds me of this quote from George Saunders, courtesy of a side of a Chipotle Restaurant brown bag:  "Hope that, in future, all is well, everyone eats free, no one must work, all just sit around feeling love for one another."

pretty sure this won't be the last recycle of that little number, so my apologies if it's already getting a little stale.   oh well...

which in turn, begs another question, at what point will a dependency upon free food and various other things reach a satiated appetite?

it would seem the squirrels on the beach in Carlsbad have given us our answer.

The natural response in the natural is, naturally, never.  Matter of fact, it gets worse.  The little demons have been fed, indulged even, given the anecdote that cures every need and woe is me with a full serving of comfort and joy without lifting a finger.  A tasty, and possibly still warm, meal just lands in front of them like magic.    What's not to love?   More significant, who's leading privileged lives now?  

yes please.

there is a fascinating post at my favorite www address... The Patriot Post....from I think just yesterday.  Hold up.  Let me search that real quick to make it easier on you....teehee

do do do do, do do do, do, da do do, do do do

Oh, here it is.

key tidbits to chew on --

 "Racism didn’t make marriage unnecessary. 'Great Society' welfare did. In 2017, 77% of black children were born to mothers without a husband..."

"As Dr. Thomas Sowell, the economist and senior fellow at Stanford’s Hoover Institute, has written for decades, 'A vastly expanded welfare state in the 1960s destroyed the black family, which had survived centuries of slavery and generations of racial oppression.' In his 2016 analysis, 'Favors’ to Blacks,' the black conservative wrote, 'In 1960, before this expansion of the welfare state, 22 percent of black children were raised with only one parent. By 1985, 67 percent of black children were raised with either one parent or no parent.' Again, it’s far higher today."

"Yes, racism contributed to the perverted role of government that ensnares individuals and destroys families with the lure of services that create a permanent underclass and generations of dependency. But it was Democrat racism like that of Lyndon B. Johnson, who said of his “Great Society” programs, 'I’ll have those n—ers voting Democratic for the next 200 years'. "

and concluding: 
"Until Americans restore the value of marriage and an intact family, don’t expect much progress on poverty, sexual abuse, 'gun violence' or a whole host of other societal ills — regardless of your race and gender."

Those numbers, above, reflecting the fallout following the natural progression and attraction to the welfare state are simply stunning.  Black families have totally flipped from a two-parent household, predominantly, to a one parent family addicted on government handouts in my lifetime.  How messed up on generational/parental role models can you be?  God love the courageous, conservative African-Americans, like  Dr. Thomas Sowell, to make the reality check so matter of fact.

Even our immigration system is laced with America's welfare state enticements; just more evidence of the bastardization of an entire culture; the organically grown corruption of America's foundation, once firmly rooted in a Declaration of INDEPENDENCE by our founding fathers, mocks everything this nation stands for, especially with regard to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.  America was never intended to be a nation based upon dependency, especially that of a reliance upon a government dole.   America, from her start, was built upon the ideas and true wealth centered upon self-reliance, virtuously beholden to good self-government.

Long ago, nobody barked at the requirement of any person, no matter country of origin, to have an American sponsor; it was expressly made clear,  once an immigrant stepped foot on American soil, an AMERICAN citizen had to demonstrably and financially take FULL responsibility for the immigrant's full assimilation --- to learn English, find employment, and act in ways respective of the rights and duties of becoming an American citizen in every way. Nothing was handed out to anyone courtesy of the American taxpayer.  Nothing.

A great society is not a bait society.  so there.

Ben Franklin, in Poor Richard's Almanac, gave us this morsel:  " Laziness travels so slowly that Poverty soon overtakes him."

What will happen if people suddenly stop feeding the squirrels? 
They will either re-learn their industrious, self-reliant nature -- or they will die.

And at the very end, Old Poor Richard says this:  "Let no pleasure tempt thee, no profit allure thee, no ambition corrupt thee, no example sway thee, no persuasion move thee, to do any thing which thou knowest to be evil; so shalt thou always live jollily; for good conscience is a continual Christmas.  Adieu."

The thing is, to live in good conscience, taking right action (be it in our industry, family, good government),  we naturally become better people...

and all in all, it becomes the proper way to raise a privileged nation.

Make it a Good Day, G
