Apparently asking $15 an hour for fast food workers isn’t enough so unappreciated socialists in Seattle are demanding the minimum wage be raised to a “paltry” $20 an hour. There are skilled and educated professionals who don’t command such a wage, not to mention soldiers facing death daily on the front lines of tyranny, but these hypocrites who religiously shell out $5 for a cup of Joe are demanding social justice because they feel slighted by more accomplished Americans? If radical leftists ever succeed in enacting such a law, and they’re already passed new wage ordinances in Seattle and Los Angeles, you’ll know exactly who to blame when the private sector collapses and the economy implodes. The problem with socialists is that they are highly adept at spending – or should I say wasting – other people’s hard earned money. COUGH…Barack Obama is case in point! Yet, how many of these wealth redistributors, closet anarchists, put years of their own time, money and effort towards building a viable and successful enterprise; a venture that creates jobs, contributes to a community, and puts food on the table for countless others? No, what progressives excel at is bitching without refrain, siphoning the tears and profits of honest and legitimate workers, and living in a fairytale world where the undeserving – their bribed electorate – reap the profits of risk takers while being completely absolved, let alone concerned, if those entrepreneurs fail and go bankrupt. You know what other organism behaves in the same exact manner? A virus, a leech, a liberal!
If disgruntled workers, dare I say unemployed Democrats, want to make $20 an hour for merely existing then I suggest they open their own business, learn a discernible skill or get a marketable education. In other words, no one owes you a damn thing in life; you owe yourself! If you don’t like what you’re being paid or how you’re being treated, quit and find another job worthy of your expectations. No one is forcing you to work at McDonald’s, to starve on a Ukrainian farm or to swim shark invested waters to escape Communist Cuba. That, my friend, is entirely of your own device. Life is unfair and always will be! The quicker you realize this non-negotiable truth, the quicker you get off your envious ass and do something about it. I’m not wealthy, I never have been, and I will never blame my neighbor for my struggles or my shortcomings. It’s called being an adult; it’s also known as being accountable.
Despite what the soldiers of statism may have told you…NPR, MSNBC, and the DNC…the successful have certain unalienable rights, including the equal right to keep their money, property and businesses; just like you have a right to change your life for the better. I’d much rather live in a society that is rife with opportunity and a limitless sense of achievement, regardless of the potential pitfalls and misfortunes, than to suffocate beneath the glass ceiling of socialism as the fruits of my labor – the very lifeblood of my family – is squeezed by the calloused hand of political parasites and illicitly given to those who couldn’t care less about my survival, this nation, or any intelligible notion of justice. The only way America works, arguably survives, is if we all make a conscious and concerted effort to work and contribute towards a responsible and vibrant society. Every person of sound mind and body owes it to themselves, their families, and this country to earn a living: no exceptions. Otherwise, it’s only a matter of time before this fabled “beacon of hope”, this last bastion of individual and economic freedom, slowly drowns beneath the collective dead weight of its own complacency, excuses, and entitlement politics.
