Tribal leaders see generational divide

(Continued)

Ada —

Government has become the greatest thief in modern society.

Everyone in Washington must have a brother-in-law working to administer these so-called charity programs because 75 percent of the funds collected never reach the intended. Besides, most of the people I’ve known collecting government freebies don’t need them. They simply take advantage of the program because they qualify.

Government’s job is to govern, not to be a church, a Red Cross or a Salvation Army.
