I am also one of those people who has always worked.
I started a lawn mowing biz with a manual push mower (anybody know what one of those is anymore?) and built it up so that I bought my own haircuts, clothes, recreation, and a professional power mower, edger, etc. by the time I was 15.
My family was waaay lower middle class and if I wanted something, all I had to do was go out and get it myself.
Not bragging. That’s just the way it was.
And still is.
And I LIKE IT THAT WAY. You want it? Go out and get it. It’s a great philosophy that’s made this country GREAT. The Greatest Country on Earth. The poor can become rich. The rich can become poor. And each has the freedom to change positions multiple times within a lifetime.
This ain’t no soup kitchen, Barry. STFU. You’re one of the beneficiaries and you bitch, bitch, bitch.
