I'm curious if other people are discussing this issue with their friends, and what is being said. This is a conversation I had today with a friend of mine.
Some people aren't getting it.
A well-written response.
This was his original post. I responded with this.
He counters.Actually, there are several things in there that completely express what this is about. One word to be exact. CHOICE. There is a "counter picture" circulating around about someone bitching about the debt they are in, but they do not ackn...owledge that all that debt was made by their own CHOICE. No one forced it onto them, they asked for it, and are now complaining about it. I will give not one ounce of sympathy for those folks. Nor anyone else who blames other people for the choices they made. The complete and total lack of personal responsibility that has infected our nation today is the root cause of this movement, and I personally find it disgusting.
My last response, edited the name out.Right...all of these people in America, Europe, hell, even the Arab countries that revolted/are revolting are all just looking for a handout. It has nothing to do with the distribution wealth, and the means in place to maintain the status quo.
XXXX, pay attention to what these people are demanding. They are demanding that all student loans just be forgiven. They are demanding a $20 an hour minimum wage. They are demanding our government spend more then 2 trillion dollars more in making their life easier. They are demanding hand outs so they don't have to get off their lazy asses and making a living like we do. This is about jealousy, plain and simple. It's about people who don't want to work, but want all the perks of it, and fuck the rest of us who have tried to make our own way in life. It IS about a lack of personal responsibility. You want to drag other issues into it, that can be debated seperately, because it's a seperate issue. The whole root cause of this from the very beginning has never been anything other then "They have it, and I want it."
