No silver spoon in my mouth, just a good raising by parents that taught me the value of earning what you get in life, no welfare in my families. Dad always said he would rather push a wheel barrow and own it, than drive a Caddy and owe for it. We did not grow up poor, but I knew a lot of folks that did and they were not on welfare. I have hunted all over these mountains in some pretty remote areas and the one thing I always admired about our mountain folks were their sense of pride. It's plain unthinkable to me that 3 generations of the same family can grow up living off welfare and that any system would tolerate such behavior. Help is something and that crap is completely different. Google search the amount of welfare of all types our government spends each year and tell me how successful welfare has been. They pay for them to go to school only to have them not work because they would lose their government benefits. Welfare has done more harm than benefit to the poor people of this country. Drive by a housing project and see how many able bodied men you see loading around doing absolutely nothing, we are supporting a class of people that now thinks it's their right to live off the goverment. Politicians prey on this belief and make no effort to stop this nonsense, afraid they won't get reelected. Our goverment is bankrupt, just like several states and many cities, our national debt is overwhelming and getting worse every year. We should be operating on a balanced budget, not going deeper in debt every year. Dave
I totally agree...
Training dogs is not so much about quantity, it's more about timing, and the right situations...After that it's up to the dog....A hunting dog is born...
