Letters 5 – 8 – 2012

Kudos to “Open Letter” 

Great letter Linda. How very unlike the Vermont style. There are many in this State who “eat for free”, entitled people who are not humble. Where ethics are swapped for entitlements, there is no dignity or shame.

The creation of entitlements has erased the stigma associated with taking charity and has neutralized the humility associated with the acceptance of unearned benefits . Notwithstanding, the LBJ “Great Society” entitlements which were supposed to have eliminated poverty in America they have not done so in 50 years. They have instead indirectly promoted and dignified the pursuit of couch-potato lifestyles of parasites who leech from the public purse. It is time to reverse course. The cure for our country’s economic problems will only come about by the exercise of a politically incorrect but natural stimulus – it is the stimulus of need.
