History, you know, repeats itself

Ever run across someone that actually amazes you with their work ethic and dedication?

I see one of them every day, and in today’s world it is refreshing.

This person is always on time. Actually, they routinely are at work at least an hour or half an hour before time.

They do their job in textbook fashion. It actually redefines textbook.

They answer questions only and otherwise keep their mind on their job.

They never whine or complain and rarely get sick.

They leave the drama, if there is any, at home.

These type of ufolks are the ones hard to find. They take their job seriously and are thankful for it.

Look at the signs in the windows of businesses across this country today and most have signs advertising they are hiring.

This did not just start because of COVID.

It peaked when the government stepped in and said they were on the way with help.

Here comes the cavalry with all of the answers. The government in its wisdom saw the opportunity to help struggling Americans by telling a segment of them freebies are here — get in line.

The line formed and it gets bigger every day.

Help came and now businesses everywhere are closing because the labor force has dwindled to epic numbers.

It reminds me of a wise old Indian chief who surmised, “If the government says we don’t need guns, we will protect you, we need guns.”

Government aid to most of those who wouldn’t or couldn’t hold a job to begin with has become cancerous and those who do work have become the victims.

There is something wrong with this picture.

We have become a baby-sitting country, and, believe it or not, there are enemies out there celebrating and making toasts to this breakdown in the foundation of our country.

Look at the prices at the gas pumps and in the grocery stores or anywhere you spend money.

Get used to it because it will get worse.

This is a slap in the face to working, tax-paying middle class America.

Americans have traditionally helped one another, but the meaning of the word appears to have been lost somewhere along the way.

In one town there were signs in 17 businesses all seeking help. That was just one block.

Yes, indeed if the government says give us your guns because they will provide the protection — keep your guns or lose your freedom.

History does, you know, repeat itself.
