JFC. Laziness truly knows no bounds. Being in a small town/rural area of the Southeast US, I can describe to you a certain segment of the population: there's a subset that has, over time, due to a convergence of circumstances (education and socio-economic status mainly) have grown up living off the government, essentially. These people raise their next generation with an eye towards doing (or not doing) whatever it takes to secure that government check each month. Now, don't get me wrong...I'm pretty liberal, especially for such a Republican areas of the US. But a lot of these people are perfectly capable of working and earning more than they would just relying on the government check. In fact, most of these people work harder at avoiding work than they would if they just worked a normal retail job, or something. I don't know how you correct that sort of mentality that's been so bred into people.
