For those of you who decry welfare, I suggest that you take a look at what it used to be and can accomplish. The Hoover Dam is arguably the greatest WPA project ever. The difference was laid bare in a statement by one of the workers from the Hoover Dam tour video.
“The president didn’t give me money; he gave me my dignity back.”
That was the goal of welfare, giving people the opportunity to achieve for themselves and provide for their families during times when opportunity was scarce. Obviously, while it can be argued that the design of welfare has changed over the years, was has not changed is the dignity of working hard to earn your way.
French Fry Heaven is a great starting platform for hard-core entrepreneurs. Regardless, the amount of success you have in anything will be directly connected to your level of effort. The higher the effort, the greater the dignity!
