Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and….. wait a minute!. Why do I have to teach a man to fish? I learned to fish all by myself with no help from anyone! True… my grandpa taught me because I had a stable, loving family and the EPA made sure the lake was free of toxins so there were fish to catch, but I did it ALL ON MY OWN WITH NO HELP FROM ANYBODY AND ANYONE WHO DOESN'T IS A LAZY, WORTHLESS PERSON WHO JUST ISN'T TRYING HARD ENOUGH AND ISN'T AS SMART AND HARDWORKING AS I AM! Of course, if something happens and I am unable to fish then I expect to use the same government programs, but that's totally different because it's ME and I'm a GOOD person. So stop asking me to teach anyone anything. If they don't know how to fish, that's their own damned problem.
