“Where was I going to get $400 a month to give her if I got these expenses,” Henrietta Hughes told WINK News.(This is the woman who had told President Obama on Tuesday (Feb 10, 2009): “I have an urgent need, unemployment and homelessness, a very small vehicle for my family and I to live in. The housing authority has two years’ waiting lists, and we need something more than the vehicle and the parks to go to. We need our own kitchen and our own bathroom. Please help.”)
Now on Friday she asked where she was “going to get $400 a month.” Henrietta, it is called a J-O-B. You don’t “get” $400 per month. You EARN it for doing WORK that is of VALUE to someone else.
I want to know where I’m “going to get $4 million a month.” The only answer is that I am going to EARN it or I am going to TAKE it from someone else by force. If I come up with an excuse that I *really* *really* NEED $4 million per month, will Washington send it to me?
When you are asking for a hand-out from the rest of us (or worse, taking it at the point of a gun), you better be ready for the strings that come with it.
