America’s welfare system gives but it also takes

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving,

Government cannot give to anyone anything that government does not first take from someone else.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

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 the other half gets the idea it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they worked for, this is the start of the end of any nation.

Japan does not have a welfare system. Work for it or do without. The A-bomb dropped in 1945. Today, Japan prospers; Detroit is in slums.

Government welfare was created to buy votes for those who want stuff.

Have you held or will you hold a garage/yard sale this year?

I have and it was a success! It's a great way to get rid of some junk and make a little extra pocket money.
I have, but it didn't go over so well. Better luck next time?
I haven't yet, but I plan to.
I haven't and I don't plan to. It's not for me.
