What kind of chumps are we?

My column for the Washington County Daily News is online and in print. Here’s a part:

America is increasingly becoming a country where if you work hard, play by the rules, take care of your family, and live up to your responsibilities, you are a chump. Not only are you a chump, but you are held in contempt by those who want what you have.




Now President Joe Biden is mandating vaccines, but only for Americans who are working and being responsible. If you are an illegal alien, are on the dole, work for Congress, are a refugee, or refuse to work, you do not have to get vaccinated. Only Americans who are gainfully employed are being forced to choose between getting vaccinated and pauperism. Irrespective of your opinion on federal vaccination mandates (I vehemently oppose them), only Americans who are being responsible, working, contributing members of society are feeling the heavy jack boots of Biden’s mandates.


So what kind of chumps are we? Why work hard, make personal compromises, and invest in a future that you will never be able to enjoy?

    The kind with money in their pockets because of that hard work, those personal compromises, and a dogged investment in their futures. Unless you’re a trust fund baby or a lottery winner there is no other way. Those who believe otherwise have some hard lessons to learn. Leave them to it.
