To the editor:

People ask “What is the state of the state, as well as the state of the United States and why has it gotten to the point it is at.”

Maybe because people of every race, creed, color and background expect something free.

If you are gettting assisitance with your cost of your schooling from the government in any form, why do you whine over having to pay something or do something out of your norm.

 

Whether it is reading the “instructions,” calling an office, or just asking questions if you don’t understand something.

Then there are the higher-ups that don’t want confrontation from the general public, because it is their underlings that are suppose to handle the “situations.”

Governments don’t want to be confronted with the fact that the rules put down in black and white are continually broken because of the underlings being afraid of losing their jobs.

These types of circumstances lead to others being treated with contempt because of their stand by the “rules.”

[These are] things like government officials bouncing checks, letting illegal actions slide and delibrately looking the other way.

Whether it cost you money, time or embarassment, be a big person and do what’s right.
