Family Values of Times Past

Smart enough, as an individual, to earn corporations a profit; as individuals, smart enough to financially support our troops, our legislators, our civil servants, our elderly, our poor. Trustworthy enough, in many cases, to obtain student loans, auto loans, and credit loans (credit cards). Smart enough to profit others but to stupid to earn a … Continue reading
