Profits should be shared between all workers. Normally the hardest workers will get the least amount of pay, while doing the #test jobs, while the
directors of the companys get massively inflated wages and bonuses for just being in a position of power. The directors will normally (not always)
come from privileged backgrounds and would have had a head start in life. The reason there is such a massive gap in America between the rich and the
poor is because of ignorance like the OPs. This is not Socialism, it is just capping Capitalism something that should have been done many, many years
While I will agree that the 10% of us workers that are hard workers actually do about 90% of the work, I will also disagree that we should change into
a socialist economy because "It don't feel good right now."
I have learned that busting my freakin' tail, regardless of how much money I have been offered, has granted me many other privileges and rewards that
are way more important than the paper money crap.
Because I am always willing to work and do a perfect job, people, even those who are less interested in working, are willing to help out.
It is a lead by example situation - not a force it into legislation situation. You do that, and you become a child.
We should be adults and take responsibility for ourselves and worry about ourselves and not point the finger and wag it, thereby only proving that we
still require parental supervision.
Having a child as president really sucks. I'd rather bust my tail for no pay than to see the government lose the last piece of freedom hanging on a
How is it that you are so blind?
Do you not realize that everything you do in life is a vote? People say, "If you didn't want Obama, you shoulda voted the other way!"
Bull. They advertise to us based upon statistics. They have numbers that define our reactions.
If people do not take personal responsibility, then they will set up a form of government that will.
If you work for a corporation that has beliefs that are against what you believe, your vote is a contradiction.
If you walk a certain way, that is your vote. If you speak a certain way, that is your vote. If you believe or don't believe, that is your vote.
Your actions are your votes.
What our government is right now is a democracy... the worst form of government in a world full of technology designed to make us work less and think
less! So, therefore, because everything we do as people is a vote for what we believe in life, whatever the numbers say is popular is what will be
advertised to us! That is what we will get!
So remember, it is not just the fault of the "elite" that we are where we are... it is all because we are weak-minded and weak-willed and spoiled.
And I don't care what drugs that put in our foods and drink or what brain-washing or manipulation you believe is happening. Who cares?
Take personal responsibility for everything to do with you and those around you and You Will Succeed.
Ignore those who would do it for you. Ignore those who would not tell you to do it yourself! Ignore those who, despite the fact that they may
actually feel they are trying to help, claim they only want to help.
Unless you need the help, don't accept it. DO IT YOURSELF. If you really are in dire need, then you will greatly appreciate the help that you do
receive... because you know you did all that you could.
And the spoiled here, you need to lower your standards for what you expect of other people and increase your standards for what you yourself can do.
Scrub the toilet because not just someone has got to do it -- YOU have got to do it. Unless you crap in a lake?
Pay attention when you wash your dishes. Turn off the stupid Television. Stare at the wall in thought. Play crazy mind games with your son and
daughter. Talk to God whether you believe or not! Because there is ALWAYS someone more powerful than you. And yet, at the same time, there is no
one who can make you do something you do not will yourself.
And don't be greedy. Your stupid obsession with getting the next best gadgets when you don't even make enough money to pay rent... What manner of
retardation is that? It is NOT a mental condition - it is a lack of personal responsibility. And then you expect the state and the federal
government to give you aid?! What?
You want a socialist economy because you know that those who work hard for their physical and mental challenge and fitness will take care of you and
more will be expected of them than you. And then you believe in your heart, "I can get away with doing the 'brainy' jobs and they can do all the
monotonaus and physically challenging jobs that are beneath me... yes, I deserve this because I have an IQ of 150. They would have nothing better to
You should be slapped upside your head for your incredibly unintelligent thoughts and feelings though you brandish the ability to put a puzzle
together. Because your ability and your willingness to see the truth are two different things.
THESE are the reasons why the economy is headed the direction it is. It is all connected - and if you don't want to be living in the United
Socialist Republic of North America, I suggest you get over your supposed mental illnesses and addictions and pay close attention and feel that
nagging hero of truth inside of you and let it Degrade you and berate you and TEAR YOU DOWN until you break down and realize it is time to take
control of yourself and do something worthwhile.
Cleaning floors IS worth while, you jerks. Because you get to walk on those clean floors while holding your child's hand and then they fall and
guess what? They aren't that dirty because the floors are cleaned. BE appreciative.
Who changes the light bulbs? Who lays the brick? Who mixes the mud? Who put the roof on your house?
Oh, but you worked so hard at your job to earn that money. So they worked for you.
Fine... how much do you appreciate it for real. Have you ever tried doing it yourself? Or are you in debt in making other people do your work for
Isn't that what the USA has been doing that has led to this problem?
Forget about liberal and conservative. Two sides of the same stupid coin. Be a frigging human being and use that brain to do something smart and use
that heart to do something good. We may be obligated to serve corporations in many ways, but by God they don't have their power without the people -
so our personal responsibility actually will roll UPHILL and knock them off the other side of their frigging mountain!
