Shame on our government for pursuing policies that promote this type of behavior in human beings. And shame on them for knowing this occurs and continuing to fund and enlarge such programs and policies, while punishing decent, honest, productive citizens through excessive taxation.
Government has lost sight of what its primary purpose is - to protect and secure the individual rights of Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness (ie, Property and all that comes with it). It's purpose is not to make people comfortable and happy in their sloth and unethical devices.
