Bill Miller: Parasitic protesters

January 5, 2014 

In response to recent articles about forthcoming “Moral Monday” protests by prominent leaders demanding more unemployment benefits and other entitlements, I can’t help but wonder: Why are protesters not stressing completing education, maintaining a clean police record and advocating nonviolence as a way of conforming to society standards? How do protesters think government can sustain benefits to a parasitic society bent on accepting welfare and unemployment as a lifestyle instead of a lifeline?

I am tired of my tax dollars being spent on a society of freeloaders crying for more but by their own actions are unable to conform to society employment standards.
