I wasn't just writing without thinking. I lived in one of those shanty type trailers - not a mobile home, a trailer. But my Dad worked hard and bought that trailer himself. His son worked hard and bought himself a trailer - worked while attending college. Then I bought a 960 square foot house, and then a bigger house, and now a 2400 square foot house. Not a mansion, but very comfortable. So, what is my point? These were not handed to me; I earned them. And I appreciate the hard work and keep it up. The point is that we have not ended poverty; we have created a new poverty caste who expect a hand-out and never aspire to anything better. And that is President Johnson's true legacy, sir.
