Work is a four-letter Word

There are certain words that most people consider unacceptable in polite conversation.  Most of them have four letters.  Thus they are commonly referred to as four-letter words.

The answer would appear to be obvious: “Why fewer, of course.”  Most reasonable people would expect that to be the goal, but if that is your final answer, you would be wrong. Continue reading “Obama’s Plan to Stimulate Poverty”
