When I was growing up I was told that if I didn’t play nice I would not have friends. People would not like me. When I started working for a living I was told work hard or people would not respect me and I would amount to nothing.
So I played nice and got along, sorta. Then I worked hard and earned the respect of my fellow workers, sorta.
Now I am nearing my golden years. People tell me be frugal so that you can enjoy your retirement.
Today I chained up my truck so I could go earn $15 feeding some other mans animals. I put the plow blade on my other truck so I could clear the driveways of the “other” people in my subdivision. The old man did these things so he could afford to contribute to the education fund for his new Grandchild.
So I have to ask myself why I am doing these things when Assholes like Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Holder, Boehner et al, did and do none and have everything they want and more than they could ever spend?
Could it be that my parents and mentors were incorrect?
