I just spilled coffee all over my laptop and hope I did not ruin it. But, if I did, I will save up
and buy a new one; I will not expect my government to buy me a new one or
invent a temporary job program to then think I am earning the money out of my own
initiative. The proper actions I allude to constitute leadership. To be angry at someone
else’s wealth and expect some to be handed your way seems immature and ill
thought out. I admire rich people, their ceaseless work ethic, enginuity, creativity and imagination.
What is wrong with the layers of our society whose expectations for themselves need to be met by someone else?? Why is the banker who earns $10M a year,
replete with earning several collegiate levels of degrees reviled, where
the half-clad, foul-mouthed rock stars who collect the same annual income
After I graduated college, I could not find work if my life depended
on it. Well, actually, it did: I had two school-aged kids to feed, clothe and house.
I did not protest. I did not march. I did not assemble, peacefully or otherwise.
I did, however, apply for numerous jobs and interview like crazy. And no one hired me.
I had no idea the country wallowed in the recession of the early 90’s. I tell you
what I did next: I started my own business. I cleaned houses. Nothing humbled me
more than earning my own college degree to then turn around and scrub somebody
else’s soiled commode. But, I earned a good living. I paid my way. I provided for
my family. I filed my tax returns. I engaged in an honest day’s work. And then,
the government called. So, I hung up my toilet brush, donned a gun belt and
went to work for the United States Customs Service, definitely not a job program.
What are you all doing to pursue your own happiness?
