THINK ABOUT THIS FOR A MOMENT

I have no idea who wrote this. But it is telling. If somebody finds out who this is, let me know. I like to buy them a beer.

The state of Colorado digs out from the 4th major blizzard this season.
These snowstorms are historic events of up to 44″ inches of snow and winds
to 90 MPH that broke trees in half, knocked down utility poles, stranded
hundreds of motorists in lethal snow banks, closed the airports where over
40,000 travelers were stranded for days, roads closed, isolated scores of
communities and cut power to 10’s of thousands.

What happened to the state of Colorado:

George Bush did not come.

FEMA did nothing.

No one howled for the government.

No one blamed the government.

No one even uttered an expletive on TV.

Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton did not visit.

Our Mayor did not blame Bush or anyone else.

Our Governor did not blame Bush or anyone else, either.

Nobody demanded $2,000 debit cards.

No one asked for a FEMA Trailer House.

No one looted.

Nobody – I mean Nobody, demanded the government do something.

Nobody expected the government to do anything, either.

No Larry King, No Bill O’Rielly, No Oprah, No Chris Mathews and No
Geraldo Rivera.

No Shaun Penn, No Barbara Striesand, No Hollywood types to be found.

Nope, we just melted the snow for water.

Sent out caravans of SUV’s to pluck people out of snow engulfed cars.

The truck drivers pulled people out of snow banks and didn’t ask for a
penny.

Local restaurants made food and the police and fire departments
delivered it to the snowbound families.

We fired up wood stoves, broke out coal oil lanterns or Coleman
lanterns.

We put on extra layers of clothes because up here it is “Work or Die”.

We did not wait for some affirmative action government to get us out of
a mess created by being immobilized by a welfare program that trades votes
for ‘sittin at home’ checks.

Even though a Category “5” blizzard of this scale has never fallen this
early, we know it can happen and how to deal with it ourselves.

“In my many travels, I have noticed that once one gets north of about 48
degrees North Latitude, 90% of the world’s social problems evaporate.”

It does seem that way, at least to me.

I hope this gets passed on.

Maybe SOME people will get the message. The world does NOT owe you a
living.
