    Hundreds line up in Darby for hurricane relief forms - delcotimes.com

    Im ashamed to live anywhere near here. But the mentality is insane. People from out of the town were coming because they were told they were going to get "free money" for disaster relief. Problem is the hurricane didn't effect they area much at all. The police had to be called in because there were so many people and they were worried about mobs.

    It's just not right.

    Many people are just individuals like corporations. They will get as much money as they can.

    Got to love the entitlement mentality.

    Free money, come and get it.

    The Japanese citizens found tens of thousands of dollars after the tsunami, and returned it to authorities.

    What's even worse, is that some of the people standing in line openly admitted they lost nothing in the flooding, "But if they're giving out free money, I want mine too!" That's the mentality we have fostered in this nation. Take a look, a long, hard, disgusted look, at the culture of dependency and entitlement that's been created in America, in the name of "social justice". This, people, is the end result of LBJ's so-called "Great Society", and liberal programs since. These disgusting leeches are the product of your efforts, democrats; hope you're proud of them!

    If its OK for Corporate "people" to be only interested in profit then why is it not OK for other people to just be interested in personal profit?

    You guys never commented on USCs point.
