Number 2 (go ahead, laugh)

So this is the second of hopefully many installments of the Thought Division. As of this moment I estimate that at least 3 people have visited this page. Yes, that number 3 does include myself and my wife (who is somewhat obligated to visit this page) but that point is moot.

As I was sitting here trying to come up with an idea that was more than just amusing to myself, I thought, "Why don't I just rant?" Okay, so this is probably only amusing to myself, but its my second post, what more do you want from me?

You know what really knots my knickers? People who think society owes them something. Just because someone the same color as me did something to someone the same color as you over 200 years ago does not mean that I owe you respect, special privileges, or a high five . Anything you want in life has to be earned. You have to get out there, roll up your sleeves, and get dirty before the chips start to fall your way. It may take years, but if you work your hardest you can make a better life for yourself.

Thats what makes this country great: Nobodies with nothing can become somebodies with everything. If you are ignorant and stupid enough to want society or the government to give you everything you need or want, be prepared to live a life without freedom. The bottom line is that you need to man-up and make things happen for yourself. Until you do, get comfy waiting for that welfare check in the mail while trying to vote into office the person who promises to give to you what those rich up-tights stole from the "less fortunate."

There, I feel better now. See you next time.

See, this is what I love about you.
This makes perfect sense to me. I don't understand how there are people in the world who do not see this point.
Anybody and everybody has to work for what they get. Unless you are a sleeze bag and you get your money by questionable means, (i.e. drugs, silly lawsuits, etc.) you are going to have to work to live a nice lifestyle!!! You can't get something for nothign.

It is sad how some people think they deserve to be "given" or "taken care of". Not me, I would much rather know I worked hard and accomplished a goal all by myself. When your given things or taught "you deserve" this or that it steals that pride that we should all have in ourselves of being self-efficient, ....but not totally, because we still need to know that we are nothing and can do nothing without God...or Lord, Jesus Christ. It is something a parent should instill in their children.
