    Hysteria is no substitute for rational analysis. The world is not about to end and neither is America. Are there issues that divide us, moral questions that go to the heart of what life means and the values we espouse? Of course there are. There always have been and always will be. It's called the battle of life, the testing ground of our faith and our stamina. And as Christians we are expected to fight the good fight and be of good cheer and not second guess God's providence and his ultimate objectives. We also serve who only stand and wait.

    I think the author needs to really question the lense at which is see's America. And perhaps maybe a deeper analysis of symptoms then just causes. Are there people who just want to collect a government check and live off the fruits of others, you bet. But this isn't just lazy citizens. This list also includes do nothing policitians and the gross amount of corporate and welfare for the rich our country provides everyday. And I suspect more people would have work if we'd stop this incessant focus on stockholders who seem to care less about what happens to entire communities and in some cases states as factories are shuttered and jobs are moved to take advantage of low wage rates (and escape burdensome regulations). As for more and more regulations, well I guess that always depends on our view. To some, when we have terrible enviromental disasters and we respond with regulations, some see that as common sense and some see that as burdensome. Both political slants in this country always seek the government to do their bidding whether it be environmental reguations or laws creating voter ID requirements. Always depends on the person looking in with their viewpoint as to what constitutions burdensome.

    I honestly over the last several years have never heard so many "negative nancy's" in my life. If anything is going to destroy this country it's this bummer attitutude. Seriously get some prozac already and move on.
