    5 things they don't tell you about being poor...

    Being poor is like a game of poker where if you lose, the other players get to fuck you. And if you win, the dealer fucks you. A bunch of you reading this are among the 45 million “working poor” in America, and if you’re not, you know somebody who is. Like me.

    Or 60 percent of all retired NBA players, according to this site.

    I’m not blaming anybody but myself for getting into this situation (I was drunk for two straight decades) and I’m not asking for anybody’s sympathy. What I am saying is that people are quick to tell you to pick yourself up by your bootstraps and just stop being poor. What they don’t understand is the series of intricate financial traps that makes that incredibly difficult.

    If you’re not poor, that’s awesome. I’m not mad at you, or jealous. Hopefully you’ll never find out that …

    May the FORCE be with you!

    5 things Liberals don't tell you about being poor...

    1) It sucks

    2) Someone who becomes a milliioaire didn't get that way by taking money out of your pocket

    3) If you depend on the government for your money you'll always be poor

    4) EVERYONE including a lot of rich people have been poor at one time in their life

    4) The only person that can pull you up out of being poor is YOU!

    Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.
