It's not just a movie make-believe mantra....our troopers say it daily. Now real-life hits Hollywood with "The Hurt Locker" nominated for nine Academy Awards. It's the story of explosives detonation teams, on the frontlines in Iraq. It's 131 minutes of emotion. CNN's Kyra Phillips spoke with the star of the movie, Oscar- nominated actor Jeremy Renner.
At a forum, the Lt. Governor spoke out in favor of finding ways to break the government’s cycle of handouts and dependency.
He even went on to compare poor students to animals.
Below is some of what he said during his speech:
…But the problem is, there are so many folks now that don’t have to do a thing. In government we continue to reward bad behavior. Any time we give somebody money, we’re telling them to keep doing what they’re doing.”
…My grandmother was not a highly educated woman but she told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals. You know why? Because they breed! You’re facilitating the problem. If you give an animal or person ample food supply they’ll reproduce. Especially one that don’t think too much further than that and so what you got to do is curtail that type of behavior. They don’t know any better.
