Latest generation

TO THE EDITOR: Kudos to Larry Jeffords’s Aug. 13 letter, “Willingness to work.”

Having worked since the late ‘40s right up to 2011, 62 years, paying into FICA and taxes and still paying taxes on my pensions, I have witnessed whole generations of families living off welfare.

Now there is another “Me” generation that still “nests” off of mom and dad, all in their 20s and 30s. Too good to start at the bottom or for minimum wages?

Imagine this generation defending our country from these Muslims when they try to take over our country in the near future.

May God help and bless America.
