    The joys of the entitlement society. Everyone seems to feel it is their right to have whatever they want even if they have to steal it from family.

    Of course that’s just a more direct path than having the government steal it for you.

    How about this for a concept. Work for a living. Live within your means. If you’ve got a car, cable and a cell phone you are not poor; get over the greed.
