I grew up having to wear one pair of shoes all year even when they had holes in them and were falling apart.
I grew up wearing my brothers old hand me down clothes from the previous year while kids in school made fun of me.
I grew up in a single wide trailer with a hot water heater that lasted long enough for one person to take 3/4 of a shower.
I grew up wearing wet clothes to school if it rained and got one of my 3 pair of pants wet that would not dry on a rainy day.
I grew up dirt ass poor and fought my way to the top of a sucessful career.
I started making more money than my mother when I was 19 years old and double by time I was 23.
My mother worked her tail off raising me and my two brothers and never collected welfare or food stamps even when we were eating bologna sammichs and
vegtable soup 3-4 times a week or going to someone elses house.
The problem is now people can still work their butts off and still not be able to make the simplist ends meet like food, water, shelter and clothing.
The system has failed us all and most of you are TOO DUMB to notice what is going on because your to busy fighting amoungst yourselves to prove that
your point of view is right whether you think everyone is lazy or born with a golden spoon in your mouth.
UNITED WE STAND DIVIDED WE FALL -
Say that to yourself over and over until it actually sinks in.
Or you could just continue to argue back and forth saying the same thing but a little different depending on where you are in the game at the time
this is written.
