My father was in the Army in World War I. I had two brothers in the Army in World War II. One in the Pacific and one in Europe. Another brother in during Korea. Myself, I’m a cold war vet. I am proud that we all fulfilled our military obligation (something that men don’t have to do today because there is no draft).

Now I belong to the gray-haired brigade and I am confused about something; Let me see if I can figure this out.

The folks, who are getting the free stuff, don’t like the folks who are paying for the free stuff, because the folks who are paying for the free stuff can no longer afford to pay for the free stuff and their own stuff. And the folks who are paying for the free stuff want the free stuff to stop. And the folks who are getting the free stuff want even more free stuff on top of the free stuff they are already getting.

Now the people who are forcing the people who pay for the free stuff have told the people who are receiving the free stuff that the people who are paying for the free stuff are being mean, prejudiced and racist.

So, the people who are getting free stuff have been convinced they need to hate the people who are paying for the free stuff, by the people who are forcing some people to pay for their free stuff and giving them the free stuff in the first place.

We have let the free stuff go on so long that there are now more people getting free stuff than paying for the free stuff.

God Bless the USA.
