March 10, 2011 - [Editor’s Note: As is always the case with passed-on articles, I researched the one included in this letter via snopes.com and found it to be accurate. The part, however, not accurate is that the e-mailed version circulating includes a picture of actor Robert David Hall - who plays the coroner on the television show CSI - indicating that he is the author, when in fact the author is Robert A. Hall, a former Massachusetts state senator and U.S. Marine Corps veteran. He did author the book from 2005 titled “The Good Bits”, but he is not an actor.]
I received this via e-mail last week and it says everything that I’ve been saying in my previous letters, and wished to share:
"I’m tired of being told that I have to “spread the wealth around” to people who don’t have my work ethic. I’m tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy or stupid to earn it.
