Just look in the mirror
To the Editor:
I am writing to inform you know that I have been unemployed for two years now and it's unfair!
Since you are gainfully employed, I fully intend to be there on payday this week and take my cut of your paycheck.
I deserve it damn it! I have looked for a good job to replace the one I lost and I am absolutely convinced that you are holding me back and there is no reason why you can't share with me.
Hell, not just me, I'm gonna line my other unemployed friends up and we are all gonna take a piece. Now I'm sure you may protest, but don't bother. I don't care how hard you worked for it, how many hours it took to get the paper out this week or last.
I don't care how you struggled to get the position or even if you yourself paid for the education necessary to make it happen. You don't deserve it!
Frankly, I think I will also expect a check from the newspaper's ownership to cover my share of those excess profits. It just grinds my gears that any of them got any kind of wealth for their prosperity. What gives you, them, any rich person a right to make any money and achieve any kind of success without including me?
Don't I deserve to just as rich as you?! Am I not entitled to just as much prosperity as you? This is America and I can't believe that as enlightened as we have become that things aren't just handed to us because its a right.
For all of you who think big business and rich people, the so called 1 percent who have it all are selfish and they are the reason why you are not rich, look in the damn mirror and ask yourself "what have I done to bust my A#% to create something, to take a risk, to build a business, or make good investment choices, and what am I going to do to change my circcumstances?"
I am so fed up with people blaming the rich and businesses for their woes, you need only look in a mirror.
“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to give to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” — Thomas Jefferson, letter to Joseph Milligan, April 6, 1816.
