"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

The Backbone of America

During this holiday season of bailouts, corrupt politics, and economic doom that have tarnished our independent image, President-elect Obama got one thing right, it is time for a change.

So much for quality is job one, ram tough, and the heartbeat of America. The Big Three have been reduced to whining, begging men that believe they deserve to be bailed out. When did this happen? Where did the backbone of America go?

More importantly how did we get to this point?

The news of impending economic depression is overhead if we do not provide a bailout to the Big Three. Perhaps that is what we need. Who can feel pity when employees are afforded a position in a job bank, which is really being paid and not working.

As I am on the countdown of my oldest son coming home for the holidays from Fort Knox, Kentucky, I have come to the understanding of where the backbone has gone. The backbone of our nation is doing what they do best. They are defending the rights of our citizens and even the CEO’s of the Big Three. So it is time for change from politics as usual. We should appreciate our brave men and women in service and allow the Big Three to survive or fail on their own. That is real change for those wailing bailout!

Introducing my son Bill.
