What do you consider a financial success? Is there some sort of criteria or a checklist that I am missing out on?
And that attack on my family and my mental capacity. lol
You seem to be very insecure. I'm sorry for that.
Nope. It just get defensive when people like you tell me that I don't deserve the money that I have busted by ass to earn. Nothing was handed to me. My family did not come from money.
My grandparents were so damn poor that they had to send my father to live with his aunt and uncle because they did not have enough money to feed everyone.
Neither of my parents had college degrees, but understood that education was the answer.....not sitting around expecting someone else to support you and give you hand outs.
My parents instilled the importance of an education in me and I took that philosophy and ran with it. I worked during high school to earn money for college....I worked 3 jobs in college to pay for my education....I did not go on Spring Breaks in college because every dime I earned went to pay for my education...I went back and got my masters while working, married, and with kids.
So when someone tells me that I don't deserve what I make or that they think I should freely give more so that someone else can sit on their ass and play XBox all day....all I have to say to that person is that they can kiss my ass.
I think it is quite amusing to hear people rant and rave about how SOMEONE OTHER THAN THEMSELVES should pay more.
If you believe in the social programs so much, why don't you just write Uncle Sam an extra check every month to support them? You are like every other liberal Democrat....feel good about your altruistics beliefs, just as long as someone else foots the bill.
I really believe we should be giving more to charity. I am going to make a $50k pledge. Oh by the way, you will be receiving the invoice in a few weeks because I think that you don't deserve what you have and you should pay it for me.
