There is no 'free' lemonade :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Terry Savage I was lol'ing so hard reading this entire story and then I realized at the end how pissed I was that this guy was actually serious about his own frustration. Is this guy so brain dead that he thinks instilling the idea of giving is going to ruin this nation? Listen, I'm not being entirely cruel to him. I know and I agree that there's a lot of stuff given away in this country but there's also a lot and I mean a lot of things that are taken at the same time. We've been run by a government (for decades now) that consistently takes from us, the people. Money, freedoms, rights, etc. and we just all watch. What pisses us off? Stupid shit, like what color shirt they wear, what their middle name is, if they're able to speak expertly, their party allegiance, what their wife is wearing. I mean think about it, I'm not wrong here, these are the petty things American voters worry about. But back on topic. What is so wrong with teaching kids to share? I highly doubt this sort of experience as a child is going to ruin someone or our economy for that matter. If anything, a lot more people could do with learning a bit more about sharing or working together. Just look at the more recent financial scandals, there's been a lot of really, really greedy motherfuckers in our country these past 10 or so years. No one is preaching free hand outs, this is about teaching kids the concept of sharing their wealth or simply being kind to others. What are your thoughts on this column? What about "hand outs" in general?
