America is a proud country- a nation of immigrants who have embraced the Christian work ethic. As a nation, we have prospered and become wealthy. Each generation has been a little better off than the one before.
But in Obama’s America, that is changing. Millennials are putting off work and marriage, while taking out too much student loan debt. Responsibility and hard work is being ignored, and instant gratification is sought. TV Host Mike Rowe, who recently sat down for an interview with The Blaze, thinks this is a recipe for disaster:
“They are going to be retired for 40 years? There’s just no universe possible where you have enough money to live on if you’re an average Joe, 40 years after punching out,” he told TheBlaze. “Part of the reason, I think, we’re facing such a mess is because people are truly still clinging to the idea that, ‘OK, I worked for 30 years and now I’m done.’ That’s crazy.”
Rowe, of “Dirty Jobs” fame, also said one of the biggest problems in pop culture is the tendency to make work the “enemy,” which he said is a very dangerous concept. And though the solution to the terrifying problem is complicated, he argued putting an end to the myth that people should work as little as possible would be a big step in the right direction.
“If the key to happiness is working less, we’re in trouble,” Rowe added. “It’s that simple. Work can’t be the enemy, unless it is, and if you make it the enemy — look out.”

Absolutely! Work is to be welcomed, not shunned. We are governed by leaders who encourage laziness and sloth with policies which exchange votes for handouts. That mind set is un-American, and it’s destroying America.
