My kids need to watch the Presidential debate for a government class that they are taking. Adie was listening to Hilary Clinton talk about jobs and compensation when she looks up at me and says, “So, she wants people to get paid even when they don’t work? (Sick leave, paternity leave etc) Well, that’s dumb!”

I want to raise children against the tide of entitlement. Owning our own business, there is no such thing as sick days. If we don’t work, there is no pay. It’s great if a business can afford such a gift to their employees, but that’s what it is a gift. It shouldn’t be mandated by the government. 

BTW: I dislike both options for President.
