One of the topics of conversation on Quora is pretty messed up. And the some of the people responding are those that fit in the `I'm Entitled` group.
If I go out and work, and make a paycheck. I'm no longer in the minority that is broke at the end of the week.
Then there's the minority that wants the US to be a social country. Now Socialism has it's place in society but not when it comes to one's wealth.
If you made $100 a day doing a job. Someone else who comes along and is hired, does a different job but they only get paid $40 a day. Sanders and the Socialist thinkers on Quora think that we should pay the difference so that we both have the same amount. I call foul!
It matters completely, taken my qualifications, seniority, and on-the-job experience compared to McBurger Flipper that has absolutely no skills but to overcook fries and squash hamburger buns all day.
We work for a wage. We don't work so other people has the right to take money from us. But that is what the Government is doing. Our taxes goes to `entitled` individuals. Those left wingers who thinks that society should supply folks with a college education, fine car, house, put pampers on their kids, and get their hair done.
Some people don't know how to manage money. There's irrefutable evidence! Maybe it is because their parents didn't teach them or they skipped more school than they were in school and missed that subject.
Baby mommas doesn't spend child support on what it should be spent on which is the child. Child support should be allocated for clothes, food, good behavior, roof over their head, and a wage for chores. Yes, I said pay them for chores. Us southerners calls it an allowance. The rest if any is left over, invest for their college or inheritance. OMG, what's an inheritance? It's what the child gets if he or she shows that they are capable of managing money. Otherwise, if they turn out to be crack heads or incapable of managing money, then and only then is the money the parents'. Don't get me wrong. Parents or guardians are the custodians of the child's money. But don't go get a $200 weave on your kid's child support. Don't go buy new clothes for yourself with your kid's child support. Get up off your keister and get a J.O.B! Quit complaining when there is more month at the end of the child support check and you can't afford formula, or pampers, or that brand new purse from Cato.
I am not rich absolutely by no means! I live comfortably. My money, after appropriate taxes are paid, is just that. My money. Not Operas', not Miley Cyrus', and especially not an illegal immigrants'! If you're able to work a full time job and can only find part time work. Find another part time job that equals the equivalent of hours of a full time job. Don't moan about it. Do it!
Benjamin Franklin made a statement directed to all these `entitled` people. "When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic."
What that is saying is when the `entitled` begs enough and causes the government to make it law that we must give them money, is the end of America. Oops, I forgot. Obama already done it with illegal immigrants. Wake up America!
Americans are better than any illegal that comes here and expects us to give them money, a house, free college, and then after all that, expect us Americans, in the United States Of America, to submit to their laws, their customs.
Theodore Roosevelt made an interesting comment on immigration in 1907.
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American ... There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag ... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language ... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
U.S presidential primary candidate Bernie Sanders says 'It is profoundly wrong that the top 1% own more wealth than the bottom 95%' Why is that wrong? Is everyone entitled to the same amount of wealth? - Quora
