I have some property that has a drainage area that was dug/enlarged by the WPA crews in the thirties...I’m told, all by hand and shovel.

That would be some of the kind of work that can get done. This country doesn't have a lack of things needing to get done. But right now people find it better to not work and get money than work at something below their standards.

Unfortunately, as others on this thread know, and I know from people close to me, getting something for free is a poison on a person's mind. It will not bring gratitude, or self sufficiency. Work brings dignity and self respect. These people who are getting free money will rationalize getting money because they are "owed" it in order to not feel guilty, no matter what contorted logic they have to use. It will poison their brains.
