Nothing left to give

August 2, 2014

Gov. Tom Corbett has the right idea when he states in one of his ads, “I’m not here to make friends.” In business you need to be brutal and not worry about hurting anyone’s delicate feelings.

Business is business, whether it be government, Apple, a snack bar in an office building, hair salon or a public school. They all need to be run responsibly. They need to know how to do this on their own. You need more coming in than going out, just like we all run our households.

The public school system needs to suck it up and figure out how to do their job, which is educating kids, and not providing free health care and free food and being just another social service agency. Public schools cannot continue to be substitute parents.

We have become a nation of instant gratification, spoiled rotten brats who want everything now. Well, my well is dry. I wish I could give everything to everyone but I just can’t anymore. There’s nothing left to give.

Also, I see in an article in July 27’s Observer-Reporter that Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tom Wolf thinks it’s a good idea to raise taxes on Pennsylvania’s “middle income” range of $70,000 to $90,000 because they’re so incredibly wealthy and can afford it, I guess.

Figure out how to take care of your own business without the luxury of legally robbing me.
