Letter: The words of John Kennedy have lost meaning over years

Ask NOT what your country can do for you...

The current value system within this nation seems to be “What have you done for me lately?”

Reside in a flood plain, next to a river or body of water, or below sea level on the coast in hurricane alley, but choose not to have flood insurance? Well, the government will bail me out!

Reside in tornado alley, but choose not to have tornado insurance? Well, the government will bail me out!

Reside in a earthquake prone zone, but choose not to have earthquake insurance? Well, the government will bail me out!

Ran our company or bank into the ground because of poor business practices? Hey, the government will bail us out!

AGAIN!

Personal and corporate responsibility?

What personal and corporate responsibility?

Who needs it?

The government will bail us out, and save us from ourselves!

Sigh...

JFK must be spinning in his grave.
