OK, so I was reading this article and I just have to talk about it. There is just so much that just wrong…
If you don’t feel like going to read the article, I’ll give you the gist: guy is walking around with a burrito. Two guys ask him if they can have a bite. THE GUY SAYS YES.
Now seriously… who in the hell gives a stranger a bite of his burrito? Anyone? Anyone?
So, he hands over the burrito, and the two guys just start walking off. When the first guy asked for his burrito back, the two guys beat him up.
So let’s talk about how much of an asshole you must be if you ask a stranger for a bite of his food, he gives it to you, and you steal it from him and then beat the shit out of him for asking for it back… W. T. F.
Seriously. How many guys would give up their food to a stranger like that? One out of a thousand? Ten thousand? And they reward that inexplicably generous gesture by just stealing it! And then beating the guy up! That’s just fucked up.
Ok, let’s take a look at this yutz: Proud One Percenter. He’s a one percenter (who obviously didn’t want to give his name – chicken shit) who is asking “Here’s the other thing: now out of the 99 percent, have you ever heard of anybody great that’s come out of the 99 percent?”
The only reason that you’ve never heard of anybody great to come out of the 1% is because you don’t know shit. Henry Ford, who invented cars which allow you to drive away? Not a one percenter. Look at everything that was invented/discovered. Isaac Newton. Not a one percenter. Galileo Galilei. Not a one percenter. Martin Luther King Jr. Not a one percenter. Steve Jobs. Ended up rich, but didn’t start as a one percenter.
Now, sure, all of those people don’t currently live in the US. My point is, rich assholes are almost never the ones to come up with anything truly great. Of course, his standard of “great” probably means “makes the most money”. His “great” doesn’t help the world. But true greatness comes from everywhere, even the 99 percent. Especially from the 99 percent. What have YOU done that’s truly great, sir?
This guy acts like old royalty. Probably born into wealth, given every opportunity to succeed handed to him on a silver platter. Thinks he’s God’s gift to the world because he’s rich. Hate to tell you, dude. Your “money” is all fake. It’s all electronic. If the Earth was hit by an EMP, your wealth means jack shit. What are your survival skills? Can you build anything? Fuck no. You just know how to manipulate arbitrary figures. Big fucking deal.
I dunno. I just hate all these rich jerks who keep saying “Get off your ass and get a job” on one hand, while with the other, they’re doing everything in their power to keep everybody else down. To make rules so the rest of us can’t find a decent job. Assholes.
