America is a failing nation

Thank you for “The evolution of stupidity,” the editorial in the March 10 paper. It was spot-on.

I am in my late 60s, and have never seen the stupidity I see today. People are rewarded for irresponsibility. It’s not just executives of large corporations; it’s everyday Americans. The government handouts of taxpayer money are taking away the incentive for people to get educated to get jobs. Some Americans receive up to four checks per month. They are living a middle-class life with no responsibility.

Parents do not take responsibility for their kids. If something happens, it’s someone else’s fault. We are turning out stupid high-school and college graduates because of a failure in our education system. The teachers take no responsibility. Politicians in Washington, both Democrats and Republicans, are totally irresponsible.

Americans need to wake up to the fact that we are a failing nation.
