Welcome to Right Wing Nut Case Central.
So named by someone that read this blog and told me that I was one of those terrible people that doesn't love the poor and hate the rich.
Yup. That's me.
I don't hate the poor, nor love the rich, either. They are just there. The rich are generally rich because they have the talent and drive to get rich. They generally put up a lot of money and risk it in a venture of some sort. They have the dreams, vision and drive to get into a venture of some sort that make them a lot of money.
The poor are poor because they don't have the drive and or talent to get ahead.
It is really that the rich have chosen to get rich and in most cases the poor have chosen to be poor.
There was a cartoon once about Bill Gates. He was trying to get a few $100 investors back when he was working out of his garage. There was a guy that didn't want to invest in Gates.
Instead he took the money and bought an 8-track tape player.
Betcha he feels like a fool now.
Truth is that if I had put the price of an 8-track into Microsoft back when Gates was working out of his garage I likely would be sitting on top of some mountain somewhere instead of busting my ass out on a boat.
The truth about a lot of the so-called poor is that life is too easy for them. They get free food, clothing, shelter, telephones and God only knows what else. They can find ways to either trade their government subsidies or work under the table for tattoos, beer, drugs and cigarettes.
We have made it too easy for them and by doing so have created a generational system of dependence.
Hey, if I had the basics coming in for free it would be pretty hard for me to get a job just to buy my own basics. Why bother?
Unfortunately there's a lot of wasted talent in the welfare rolls. I'd bet that if you did away with the benefits and made people support themselves there would be a number of people that would be quite successful once they got the hang of things.
I don't hate these people for this, I just wish they would decide to start taking care of themselves.
Thinking this way seems to have gotten me labeled a nut case so I figure I won't fight it. I guess if you want to call this blog Right Wing Nut Case Central, then go ahead.
I suppose I COULD care less, but I don't see how. My care-o-meter is resting on the zero peg.
