Recommended Posts

So right now my wife could stay home with our newborn for the first year. When she goes back to work I would be able to pursue starting new company.

I got where I am from hard work.

Not sitting around bitching about what others have. Not sitting around claiming that I was "owed" anything.

I did what it took to get my education. My parents paid for nothing. I could have easily thrown up my hands and said life was not fair and that society owed me....and I would he like most of you.

I chose to be better than that. I said I was willing to do whatever it took to get my education...working multiple jobs.

I chose to do what it took to move up the corporate ladder....working 18 hrs a day for several years in public Accra.

I knew that I needed a grad degree to get where I wanted...so I went back to school at night.

I decided that I wanted a 4.0 in grad school....and I spent 20 hrs a day working at my job and studying to achieve it.

What made college avail to me...hard work and making the grades in HA.

What made college possible for me....me bring willing to work 3 jobs and take a full load at school.

What made a grad degree possible...being willing to give up my nights and week-ends for over 2 years.

So, keep bitching about what you don't have and what society owes you. I will keep looking at you in my rear view mirror.

 

First, good for you.  We all know now that you worked hard to get where you are.  That is awesome, and under a system like this you would probably make even MORE money and your skills and talents would be even MORE in demand.   How is that bad?

 

Second, I don't think anyone here is saying they are "owed" it's just a discussion on potential.  Get off your soapbox because you are wasting your precious time by getting angry.   It really just sounds like you are scared that others could live comfortably without putting in what you have, even though you would probably make even more.    Since you went through all this, you of all people should understand how it would be helpful to have a check like this so you can focus full time on school and things like that.   Is it because you assume everyone else has to go through hardship because YOU did?  We should want things to get better, not make others face the same difficulties.  It just sounds selfish.

 

Third, do not try to act like you know me.  You may know the others in this thread, I'm not sure, but I went and got an education too, and that bill is all on me.  I pay the loan every month.   I also work just as much and I feel I'm also in a good place.   However, if something can be pushed through for the greater good, I'm not going to stand in the way because I want others to suffer too.  That is just silly.

Good Lord Did everyone forget ECON101? Guess what happens if everyone has $2800?! Guess what happens?!$? Guess you libdicks!

Oh thats right! My milk is now $20 and my precious eggs are now $15! And to top it off my rent went to $1500....AMIRIGHT?!

Please stop your liberal star trek propaganda and quit hating on Hatter. Your butthurt is showing.

 

Did you even take something called ECON101?  Judging by your inability to have a discussion without insults I'm not sure you got out of high school.

 

I wouldn't classify myself as either party, but it sure feels like the ones that spew insults and hate always lean right.

Millions of Americans sit on their ass for $1,000/month welfare. If you start handing out $2,800/month nobody will work.

 

Please go back a page or so and read the study someone posted that proves you wrong.  People in that town actually DID work.  People will ALWAYS want more money, and they can work and make more if they want.  This just means people aren't forced to work and can live comfortable where they are.  A good chunk of it will go back into the economy anyway, so if you want to open up your own small business you can.   People won't just stop working, not all.

I spent a good amount of time in Switzerland this Summer. Its a differnt world there. They are rediculously wealthy overall and people from all over the world fall over themselves to givw them theit tourist dollars on top of what they get off of their financial institutions. It isnt comparable to here in any way. Good for them. If you could choose a place ro be a natural born citizen of it would be hard to beat Switzerland.

I wonder how hard it would be to become a Swiss citizen, or at least be eligible for this money?

Likely nearly impossible if not completely. You might be able to become a citizen but not qualify for the money. It's a similar situation in Luxemburg. Both are very wealthy countries with smallish to very small populations. They want to promote true Swiss and true Luxembourgers to stay in the country.

Oh yeah, I know it would be almost impossible for a country this size and with how things are ran here, unfortunately.   It's really just a discussion but some people obviously got angry about it lol.

Hopefully this is a sign of good things to come our way one day. For those of you who are familiar with my threads of past speaking on new global economic restructurings, you know what i'm talking about.

 

We will get there eventually. Star Trek will be the way of the future.

Isn't this humanity is headed eventually? Work is unnatural and inhuman, and when you consider working 8 hours a day, 5 days a week will have you eating noodles and soup its pathetic. I'm all for socialism like this if it works. Some people are so wrapped in their flags and outdated ideologies they would have nothing of it.  Well they can slave for the Waltons for 8 dollars an hour.

Good. Human beings spend too much of their life "working" for food, so they can go to work the next day.
