Jason, Ryan, how does relying on handouts from successful, wealth producing communities, make Hamilton's economy stronger? Just as muscles atrophy when they are not used, and people get lazy when they are coddled, why would anyone expect Hamilton's economy to become competitive when it never competes.

The only people who ask for handouts are people who are lazy. Lazy people do not build great fortunes, so why does anyone think that accepting handouts will make us better at creating profit making enterprises? Without the stress that comes from competition, Hamilton will never get stronger. Life is fair, you reap what you sow. If you sow hard work and discipline, you reap a bountiful harvest. If sow laziness and sloth, you reap famine and shortfall.

Clue in folks, getting free stuff is not helpful. It only creates dependence and weakness.
