This is not one of those time when we can let everyone else do the hard work, we must do it ourselves, raise your voice!!!!
There is also a wide range of other products with the Alaskan Tea Party Design!!!
Check them out!
As a note to all, I am not a big tee shirt company, I'm a mother of two with a full time job in a grocery store. The things going on in our government scare the hell out of me and I usually cope with things through art. I don't have the money to travel to Washington and be seen and heard so I wanted to be involved the only way I can. I have also created a VIRTUAL TEA BAG that you can feel free to copy and paste from my website to use in any way you'd like. http://www.alaskanartistnicoletaylor.com/tea_part...
I also created a a printable fax sheet thats already to roll out to our state officals
I hope you can use these :)
To this day my husband cannot sit around and do nothing, he always has to be working and being productive.
My husband recently told me a story of a pile of red bricks. When he was young there was a pile of red bricks in his yard. When he was done with his regular chores, his dad would ask him to start moving the bricks to the other side of the house.....it was a big pile!
For the last few years I've noticed are serious lack of work ethic in the teens in the town where I live. When my children were elementary school age, my husband and I chose to work separate shifts. I worked Swing and he worked a very early day shift. The reasons for this were twofold, I was fiercely against paying somebody else to raise my children because I had to work and I was also low income and didn't have the option of staying home with them. I didn't go to work days until they were much older. My husband and I rarely saw each other during these early years, we were like ships passing at sea. There were times when I thought I may have to file for Public assistance to get by but when I looked into the possibility, I found that they required me to work and also required me to put my children into daycare. Something I was not willing to do. We ate a lot of Top Ramen. I know many parents who fell into this trap of paying someone else to care for their children because they had to work or because they wanted to have a career and more besides being a parent.
Look what this has gotten us, I see teens and young adults who would rather stand around and watch others work, with no feeling of responsibility or even guilt that they don't do their part. When told they need to accomplish a task they feel is beneath them, they would rather quit a perfectly good job than apply themselves. I am happy to say both of my children know what hard work is and when it needs to be done they get int here and do it!
We have all been ranting about how this new "change" is screwing everything up, but when it comes down to it, we've been allowing the gradual "change" to slide right by us while we were busy trying to get by. I can see a horrible world of young people who would rather give up all their freedoms and allow people to take care of them, than do the hard work it takes to make a life with the honor and integrity that Glenn so passionately talks about.
Be sure to share it with all your friends
