BTW, I have a trust fund, too. I also clear a considerable amount of money by working. And I can buy whatever I want, whenever I want. Except for
that Gulfstream G5 that I really want.
Yeah, quite a few people these days subsidize their income with a trust. But hey, ain't a Gulfstream G5 a little over the top, ha?
settle upon an RV and spent 3.5 years just traveling around getting to know nature instead of clouds in the sky, lol.
What I DO take issue with are those elite that USE the poor to obtain their power and wealth .. specifically the politicians. Take Obama for
example. The only reason he got elected was because HE promised goodies, kickbacks, bribes, to the desperate poor. "I promise you health care by
enslaving those that can afford to pay your bills and living expenses." .. "I promise you more entitlements by jacking the successful, the
so-called rich!" NOW THAT is a stinking sin, and it should be a crime for a politician to make promises of kickbacks and bribes to the desperate
poor and corrupt voters that get their kicks by coveting and jacking those that have more than them.
The elite do that a lot, they dangle a piece of candy out there as bait to entrap the trappable. They convince the masses that you can not be happy
unless you have this or that or whatever. I know people that believe they are the underprivileged because they don't own a huge home entertainment
system or a computer or an iPod or a sprawling castle in the countryside .. many of these things that were not even around years ago .. I mean, was
everyone poor and unhappy until some of those things were invented? Are there people out there that are unhappy and unfulfilled because they don't
own a new shiny car and a big wide-screen home entertainment center?
I hate the elite that ENSLAVE the masses by brainwashing them into believing they need this or that, and without those things you are poor,
underprivileged, and the underclass.
I consider those that know how to live and be happy with less to be the lucky ones, because they aren't addicted to STUFF. Yeah, I live off a trust,
but it ain't no 6 figure a year amount. I had to even sell my home and move into a one bedroom apartment and drive a used car in order to free
myself from enslavement and that whole 9-5 lifestyle (but on the upside I don't have to mow the yard or shovel snow, ha). Yeah, I could be making a
boat load of cash if I went back to work too, I quit a fine job with a major corporation when that trust came along, but I value my time, my freedom
more than money and stuff.
You know, there are a lot of people out there that believe they are poor because they don't have a boat load of crap like the elite rich do, and I
feel sorry for them for having been duped and programmed into believing RICH means STUFF and MONEY. In my book rich means FREEDOM from all that junk
that nobody really needs. I mean, look at all those monkeys that line up every time a new iToy comes out ... I wouldn't waste a second of my life
waiting in some line for any of that junk and having to enslave myself to pay for it, ha. STUFF junkies, I feel sorry for them.
Free your mind people .. you may be more well off than you think if you can free yourselves from this monkey world of possessions that the elite use
to determine who is well off and who is not. I do not have nearly as much as those that are probably thinking they are poor, but I consider myself
RICH because I have LOTS of FREE TIME .. not money ... Time is what I value, not money and stuff.
