The Things That Annoy Me for $100, Alex.
The notion that somehow, there are people out there that are just entitled to better pay and better benefits in their job is perhaps one of the absoluite worst gifts given to us by the Baby Boomers and their progressive forbears. It really chafes me whenever I see it—And moreso when some union, whose leadership gets to live the life of luxury on $200k salaries, puts a bunch of said people in front of the news cameras for a march or two.
You want to know what you need to do if you don't think you're getting paid what you deserve? Or if you think you're being robbed of the benefits you need so much?
Nobody is forcing you to work where you're working, the days of a company enslaving people in Company Towns with Company Currency are long gone—Long before the New Deal, long before our less-intelligent progenitors left us with Social(Ponzi) (In)Security, long before "the unions" gave us "the weekend," which is a laughable story by any measure of reality.
I've had enough of these freeloaders and their Mercedes-driving puppetmasters. You want to make more money out of life? GO EARN IT. Life really is that simple.
Yeah, I'm sure you can come up with a million excuses, but the solution remains the same for each of them—YOU are in control of your life, NOT some faceless company, NOT some fatcat union boss. You don't have to put up with those deplorable conditions, buttercup, because somewhere else out there, there's a better company.
Well, if your Democratic-controlled government haven't chased them all away, that is. But then again, if you voted the business-illiterate into office, whose fault do you suppose that is?
Sometimes I wonder if there really is such thing as too much wealth. I mean, if any of these people saw what the living conditions were in any third-world country, would they really plead poverty with a straight face, in front of millions of news consumers no less? Life's a lot tougher when all you have to eat is dirt and mud, and sometimes only dirt—something that these iPhone-toting flat-screen-TV-owning car-driving food-microwaving stooges will probably never understand.
Anyone have any idea on how soon we can start the eviction process for all of California? I'd be absolutely delighted to be a different country from them now, if that'd be doable.
