The last time I took a vacation away from home was nearly 10 years ago. Except for the 2 years I spent trying to find a job after being laid off, I’ve worked my entire life since 1964 when I was twelve years old. I started out mowing lawns in the trailer park we lived in for 50¢ a yard. I also collected scorpions and sold them to a professor at the local university for 5¢ each.
In the forty years I’ve been married, we’ve only been able to afford to take three vacations away from home. We’ve never made a lot of money and just have not been able to afford to go anywhere even though we have always wanted to.
Yet, poor people on welfare, at least in California, have been taking vacations to Florida and Hawaii and cruises to destinations around the world as well as numerous trips to Las Vegas at the cost of over $69 million of taxpayer money.
