Re: “Taxpayers to Ryan: We want our country back UPDATE

I worked a hell of a lot harder when I made minimum wage during college than 20 years down the road when I met the right people and lucked into a $175K year job.

As someone who retired at age 45, I'll say that rich people are rich primarily because they got lucky. They're born into it, or they catch the right hand of cards in the poker game of life.

I know lots of people who worked harder and made better decisions than me who are unemployed and bankrupt. And I know people who were born into millions.

Any goofball can see that when 20% of the people control 85% of the wealth, there's no such thing as upward mobility. It's simple math.

If you are born into the 80% of the people who make 15% of the money, your odds of breaking out of that pack are slim indeed. The 20% who control the US have a vested interest in keeping you down.

But keep smoking whatever you're smoking, and keep telling yourself that hard work and good decisions will make you rich. I'll sit here and laugh about what an idiot you are. LOL.
