This is a message for all Americans. It regards the word AMERICAN. We “give” too much money and “free” products. A man in Honduras told me when I was there, “Our farmers cannot sell their products because AMERICANS send identical products for free. They mean well, but we are becoming a welfare state.” Out of work, into mischief and just look at Honduras today.

Today the United States government is handing out money right and left. This is poor policy. The available jobs may not pay enough to provide for tattoos, cigarettes, gold balls in ears and noses, soda pop, and junk food, but free food paid for by our taxes seems okay to me. Free money does not.
