PUBLIC FORUM: Handouts make lazy Americans

Handouts make lazy Americans

A lifetime Black Democrat changing over to become a Republican? Very interesting, here's a man who no longer agrees with what his party is doing. Changing the government right before our eyes, making the government bigger and making his race being controlled with all the free handouts. Handouts are getting bigger with every race! Americans are getting lazy, why work if I can get things for free if one chooses not to work full-time or at all. Americans have gotten lazy, mostly the younger generation.

Talks again of amnesty for the illegals. One of my favorite subjects! They too love our government's free handouts and have figured out our government's free system. Enter this country illegally and get free handouts. The State of Indiana said for citizens like myself to get used to it, they’re here to stay and are only replacing the retiring baby boomers workforce. Not the young lazy groups of all races.

Lets face it, no one loves to work, but it sure will break your day up. I do not play video games and maybe this is why I think the way I do? Not! Let those people continue to get lazier. Let the illegal Hispanic population continue to get the free handouts as well, and become the new race of baby boomers for the generations down the road to deal with.

This is happening right before our eyes. The federal, state and local government has control of this new out-of-control social movement; what will America be like in 20 more years? Will small towns like Logansport be divided like the big cites? Will the West side, the East side, the North and the South end up being controlled with 95 percent of the population of one growing race? It seem no matter where you live, you can see that happening now and there sure looks like there is four or five little ones on the porch who will grow up soon.

I will bet gas will still be 20 cents higher than the surrounding cities. No, government will not change that either!

America...Hmm? Am I the only taxpayer that wants a government to do some hard painful work that needs to be done instead of keep pushing to give away more of the taxpayers' money and making American people lazy?
