I really do pity all those people that are only concerned about money and success. 
No wonder the world is so screwed. It always seems to come down to vanity and greed.


I feel sorry for those people too because they work hard to get ahead only to have their wealth stolen and given to the jackass with the degree in basket weaving because that fool can't feed his family. And he has to listen to that same loser tell him how greedy he his!

There's great money in becoming a merc. Limited education, start from the ground up. A 6 month tour can net you in the 120k to 150k range if you're good and operating in the "right" theatre of operations. If you get a BA economics and become a total psychopath with special forces training, hob-knob with the right suits, you can graduate to mechanic and take selected contracts. They could easily see you into a million a year or more providing contract work for banks and other corporations, sometimes governments, two weeks here, two weeks there, lot of forward research though. If it's all about the money, death pays the best. If I seem callous or cynical, well, I am.

Of course, that's only my opinion...

Cheers - Dave

Do you have to speak a foreign language?

This is my awesome second line. Read it and weep.

Generally no, but it is helpful ;-)
Especially if the second language is the one spoken in the theater of operation.

I never got more than a high school diploma, but I make $55,000+ a year dealing Tablegames (blackjack, 3 card poker, pai gow, etc.) at a casino.

I'm still, however, trying to convince my two high school graduates that community college or the military would be wise.

I don't know. I have always had a sort of resentment for higher education. I absolutely agree it is imperative to get some sort of education/ formation but I revere MAKING your own job. It is one thing to be able to get a job, it is another to make your own job.

I think that is why small business has always been targeted for elimination by big business. Once education is completely out of our reach unless we are the accepted pupils, there will be no options except federal jobs, corporate jobs, or the military.

The small business is conducive to family unity, community unity, and other great sociological enhancements that make a nation grow and prosper for ALL. We need to start business without bank loans. We need to educate ourselves for the pleasure of learning. We need to make money without hurting our world.

If you can't get a job, think about making one. It's almost impossible, but doable. One person can employ many. support your local businesses. They hire as long as you work hard, are committed, and loyal. Like the old days.

You wont be able to afford a new car every year, but you will be free.
