stealing

The idea that those who steal have fallen on hard times doesn't hold water. There are already government programs in place to provide food for those who lose their jobs. It's called food stamps. There are also food banks. If they don't qualify for food stamps, the chances are these people may have QUIT their job or were fired for dishonesty. If that is the case, they don't deserve a hand out. I grew up in a large family. We were extremely poor. We NEVER stole anything. I got my first job at the age of 11. We worked in the fields from sun up to sun down. We were taught that if you don't work, you don't eat. We didn't blame others because we were poor. We worked to get ourselves out of poverty. I'm sure there are many others who did the same and did it without food stamps and government handouts. Parents are guilty of buying ANYTHING their child wants because they want their child to have better than they had. They don't want their child to do without like they had to do. Unfortunately, this has given us a generation of lazy people who demands everything and are unwilling to WORK for it. I think we need to educate our children and give them the tools needed to work and be productive members of society. I think we need to bring back the Future Farmers of America and other skill related programs into our high schools. If we want to do our kids a favor, teach them how to live life and take care of themselves. Teach them how to grow food and repair their cars in high school. Give them a solid base to build on. I love technology, but our kids need to know how to do more than sit at a computer. Our educational system is utterly broken. Our kids have a distorted view of what life should be about.
