Dealing with a grown child or friend that seems to always be in need can sometimes be referred to as a moocher. There comes a time when that individual must stop being enabled to improve their own situation. Many parents and friends lives are plagued with cases like these. Here are some great quotes about moochers that set the record straight.
“A gold standard is to the moochers and looters in government what sunlight and garlic are to vampires.”
“Givers need to set limits because takers rarely do.”
“Have more than you show, speak less than you know.”
“I think that money is the root of all evil. I’ve seen it happen.”
“Liberals believe and inexhaustible fund exists that can be tapped endlessly to pay for government social programs. Tax the rich and give it to a long line of moochers, pork barrel hustlers and ne’er-do-wells.”
“Money is a tool of exchange, which can’t exist unless there are goods produced and men able to produce them. Money is the material shape of the principle that men who wish to deal with one another must deal by trade and give value for value.”
“Money is not the tool of the moochers, who claim your product by tears, or of the looters, who take it from you by force. Money is made possible only by the men who produce. Is this what you consider evil?”
“So you think that money is the root of all evil. Have you ever asked what is the root of all money?”
“There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what.”
“Thou shalt not take moochers into thy hut?”
“Unemployment insurance is a pre-paid vacation for freeloaders.”
“Why is it that if you take advantage of a corporate tax break you’re a smart businessman, but if you take advantage of something so you don’t go hungry, you’re a moocher?”
With the rise of entitlement programs in recent years down to the economic downturn in 2008, many people sought help. However, there may be some that are continuing receiving benefits although they are fit to labor. These are core characteristics of moochers.
