Driving around the A-K Valley, one can’t help but notice the increasing number of freeloading bums roaming the streets and neighborhoods. Daytime or nighttime, it doesn’t matter. This includes both men and women. The men with their baggy pants, backwards hats, no shirts, looking like they have never held down a job or would know how to do one if they had the chance. Then of course there are the women, walking along squeezed into their skin-tight brightly colored outfits, that are three sizes too small, pushing their baby buggies and dragging along two or three other little ones who have that deer in the headlights look in their eyes. Sadly, we can only expect more of the same from them as they develop in this kind of environment. When your closest role models are a pair of lazy, uneducated, pair of dopes, who’s only skill is popping out more welfare babies, there isn’t very much chance of success. Oh, and if you are thinking the “village” will raise them right, forget about it. We in the village have had it with your expectations that we will do it all for you.
Ah, the great American welfare state. People with no jobs, no education, dumb as rocks, who wait for their monthly dole from the taxpaying citizens, who are stuck footing the bill for all this absurdity. When you take away responsibility and make this lifestyle generational, you end up with people, who have no motivation to work, no skills or interest in carrying their share of the load. Perhaps the saddest part is that they expect this to continue forever and have no desire to lift themselves up.
Next time you drive around the valley communities, take a look around at what’s out there. I mean REALLY take a close look. It’s hard not to be disheartened.
