Lol this is going to be a very unpopular position to take, but honestly getting a job is not that difficult. Getting a GED is not that difficult. Working your way up to make decent money off of only having a high school diploma is not that difficult. I am actually all for having free health care for those who cannot afford it. It really is good for the human race in general. Those of us who are healthy enough to not need it, however, would rather not have to pay a penalty for not having it.
How about instead of hating the rich we all had the determination and drive to get there ourselves?
AND if you do not want to work hard enough to become “rich” and just want to bitch and moan about those more wealthy than you, how about you shut up?
IN OTHER WORDS
Put yourself in a position to succeed and stop bitching and moaning about those who have more drive than you and took immediate advantage of opportunities they saw in front of them.
Sorry about this rant and the offbeat note of healthcare stuff there.
I am just tired of people who are not motivated enough to do more than just “survive.”

I cannot express how true this is. Just. Oh my god.

Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
posts like this piss me off because it’s like “i don’t need financial security someone give me a trophy”. the people that have this mentality usually have never actually grown up poor or seen their loved ones suffer poverty. if your biggest qualm is “my parents won’t like it” you’re lucky.
lol like “open a yarn shop!!” you need to be completely blinded by privilege in order to have that line of thinking. like excuse me while i pull money out of my ass that i could use for rent or you know, food and medicine, in order to open a goddamn yarn shop, because you know, it’s so easy to open a business and pay the rent for it and the other expenses.
i personally don’t want to be an artist so this isn’t personal to me, but i am sure that there are individuals out there who want to be artists but can’t, and discrediting them for chasing “scraps of paper” is so damn disrespectful. if you have actually experienced hardship you’d know that those scraps of paper make the difference between your loved ones waiting 16 hours to see a doctor in the ER or have a hot meal or go to college. you’re not better than anyone for chasing your dream, you’re just lucky that you have that opportunity. determination can only get you so far unless you wanna starve to death and if you don’t see that then congrats on your privilege, enjoy it! also “it doesn’t take much to live comfortably”??? you’re hilarious.
Reblogging for A+ commentary
"Warm Home" let’s see. Barring renting, let’s pretend you wanna own one…
- Down payment (10% or more. Do you have 10k sitting around, minimum?)
- Heating/Cooling - how well insulated is the house? Climate? This affects your bill dramatically. And heat isn’t cheap.
- Water bills
- Property taxes
- Electrical bills
- Gas bills
- Home Owner Association fees if in your area
And that’s bare minimum. Then your web bill…
Food bills are around 200$ minimum for good food in a metropolitan area for a couple weeks, if you stretch it well and don’t chase sales and use coupons like those people on TV.
Minimum. (I am basing this number around my 3 person home. And we do not exactly eat a lot. Bc we can’t afford to.)
Then there’s your Pension Plan you gotta pay in to, your Nest Egg, your (un)Employment Insurance, Income Taxes….
Do you have any idea how money works.
