Today in American Government (by far my favorite class so far... and I'm not just saying that because the instructor will probably read this at some point), we looked deeply into Elizabeth Warren's latest big quote, I'm sure you've all heard it or read it by now. For those of you who are way behind...
There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody. You built a factory out there — good for you!I love this so much. I love her a lot. Mostly because you would think she would be incredibly conservative looking at her history, but in reality she is really open and in my opinion, really right-on.
But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn’t have to worry that maurauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did. Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea — God bless. Keep a big hunk of it.
But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.
What are your opinions on the Occupy Wallstreet deal? I honestly wish I could be there shaking my fists in the air with rage wearing my radical 100% cotton smock. Mostly because I think the whole situation is riveting, exciting, but I have one little concern. Have the rioters lost their spunk solely on their disorganization? MSNBC suggested they are lacking leaders, and that's what really is differentiating them from the London riots earlier this year. I could see it.
UM, so I have a job interview tomorrow... My do nothing days that happened for about two weeks could potentially be gone. That is so sad. But so okay, because I will actually be able to afford my car. Hoorah!
Our favorite Malkin at the Fox News Station has made a very... fox-y claim. "Obama is the guy who is shaking around his brass knuckles every time... someone criticizes him". Ha ha! Yeah, okay. Honestly one of my only complaints about Obama is that he doesn't do enough shaking of the brass knuckles. Hell, I think he should be whippin' them around at all them congress members.
Walmart Adds Transgender Provisions To Employee Non-Discrimination Policy today.What, does that mean we're supposed to put them on a floating carpet and praise them for their concern? Let's not forget about all of their ABUNDANT line of history in incredibly blunt anti-LGBT regimes. So yeah, this is a good thing of course. But dammit Walmart, you make so many lives miserable every single day and make people think you're being charitable by selling less than acceptable in the level of quality items for a great price! You suck. Go die.
I'm off to stress out about my interview, and do some homework now. Stay fresh, ya'll. And go be active on the Lame and Forceful Facebook page!
