To the editor:

I agree with Rory Ryan's April 25 column. America needs to go back to work.

The government has turned America into a lazy and controlled country. And Americans are letting it happen.

How long, America, do you think these government handouts are going to last? How long do you think these businesses are going to remain open, waiting for America to step up and get this great country moving again?

What if the illegals step in and fill those jobs and the government no longer sends you, the people, any incentive to stay home? Do you see where this is heading? Ignorance is no excuse. "Found money" does not keep your doors open. Rolling up your sleeves will. Wake up, America, before it's too late.
