Have a very Happy Independence Day! while you still can

Beware a mindset that knows no boundaries of that sort
The Fourth of July is also called Independence Day.
“Independence”—as in “The Declaration of Independence”—meant that we had severed our ties with England and were autonomous, although it took many long years of struggle before we established our own government and its Constitution.
But “independence” also has a more general meaning that is, well, somewhat independent of that, with synonyms such as “self–sufficiency, self-dependence, self-reliance, self-subsistence, self-support” and antonyms such as “dependence.”
Of course, in some sense we are all dependent on each other; no man (or woman) is an island.
But there is a growing feeling in this country that we have a right to ask, or even to demand, of other people that they take care of us, not of their own free will as voluntary charity, but as a matter of law and compulsion. And not only when we are in dire straights—struck by serious hardships outside of our control—but also if we don’t happen to have as much money as they do, or as much as we would want, or if we just don’t feel like working.
Sometimes it seems as though some are celebrating Independence Day while others are celebrating Dependence Day.
And I’m by no means talking about one ethnic group or another. I’m talking about a mindset that knows no boundaries of that sort, and which has grown in recent decades to encompass vast portions of the populace. It’s a mindset that could very well destroy us if we run out of other people’s money.

How many more buses filled with leaches will Obama be spreading out over our country.The country is overrun with those who want someone else to pay their way. Its how Obama got reelected. Flooding the country with millions more folks on foodstamps. Allowing millions more to suddenly qualify for Social Security Disability. All they need was a good lawyer who provides the doctor to sign off that the person has a handicap. Yeah sure does its called being lazy. Too lazy to look for work as long as the rest of us tax payers are willing to foot the bill. Now Obama makes it easy for Thousands of more illegals to flood our shores.  every one who will end up with welfare benefits and food stamps and free healthcare that those of us still working will pay for. Isn't life good if your a freeloader.
