Bird Feeders & Individual Responsibility

Best line from the Encyclopaedia Britannica.  Generally, the granting of government assistance to individuals as mandated by law or by need.  Recipients of such assistance may be entitled to it by virtue of their status, without otherwise having to qualify for it.

Entitlement mentality is a cancer in our great country. The Federal and State Governments are giving more and more handouts while entitlement programs like Medicare and Medicaid are virtually bankrupt.  We are at the fork in the road, we can continue down the entitlement road and bankrupt our country,  or we can do the right thing and be accountable for our own results.  There is a great saying, “If it is to be, it is up to me”.
