I am in a unique position where honestly I would be better off NOT working off-farm financially, but ethically I do not think it is right. I have a skill and ability to weld and since right now our country is in need of those skills for the ships that I help build, its best to do so.

This week I will drag myself into the local county seat to pay "my rent".....the property taxes which, if unpaid, might lead to my "eviction". Where is Daniel Shays when you need him?

I think many, perhaps most, people don't want to just sit around, they'd rather do something meaningful with their lives. For instance my 85 year old dad, a retired dentist and dental professor who volunteers a few days a week at the Christian Dental Clinic downtown. He absolutely adores dentistry, and even though he's probably the slowest dentist in the world, he finds tremendous fulfillment from doing dentistry for free.
