Greed is the root of many of our problems

My father taught me when I was very young that nothing of value was free, especially from government. It is not good for a person to get something for nothing or for very little effort. This evil human urge to get without giving — to receive without paying — is the very thing that may produce criminals.

This is even more true today with all the new products produced since the 1920s. Whenever we have a large planned unemployment, the con artists are out in force, and they seem to target the senior citizen.

During the past month I received a call from what was supposed to be my grandson's friend, that he was in a car accident and needed a large amount of money. I know that if my grandson had asked for me, he would ask for a certain name. This tipped me off.

Then I had a person call me to tell me I had just won a large amount of money. They asked if I wanted to claim it or give it to the Negro College Fund; if I wanted to claim it, there were funds that had to be paid before they could release it.

I know there will be many more, in all different forms, to try and separate you from your money — the government being the worst of all. They have to steal every cent or borrow it to pay for their votes; just check out the group in Washington or Sacramento — like the Federal Reserve. The group is the same; only the faces change. And if the truth is ever known, the majority of our problems started with their greed — something for nothing.

If you get one of these calls, get as much information as you can and send it to the Better Business Bureau!
