Be ever vigilant against criminals

I don't answer the phone if I see an unknown name and number come on the Caller ID. If they have something important to say, they can leave a message. Otherwise I am not going to answer the phone. I wonder how many scam artists use this tactic to get personal information from others?

We live in a different world these days. It is not like the good old days where most people could trust each other. Society needs to make a comeback or otherwise moral decay will continue. What happened to making an honest living? Do we want more people working 80 hours a week so someone else can do nothing? It seems that much of our society thinks so.

Do we want more thieves to continue stealing items from hardworking folks? I think it is time for this state to build a new prison so that our judicial system will have a new home for criminals who keep doing crimes over and over again.
