I watched a video today that has comedian Sarah Silverman in it and she is talking about her support for Bernie Sanders which is nice, no problems with that BUT, she is doing what most Bernie Sanders people are doing and that is represent the class of people in this country who bitch and whine about how unfair life is.
Ladies and Gentlemen of the Meet The Mentor audience, let me shine some light on this subject because it really angers me that Rich people are made out to be the bad people in this country when in fact they are the ones who Bernie Sander Supporters are trying to impress with their abilities and knowledge so that they can go and work for one of those Rich people that they seem to hate so much.
You can become a rich asshole in America ONLY if you make your workers eat cat food and stay at a low wage?…..so that is the rich person’s fault if the person who eats cat food stays there eating it?….explain to me how that works exactly. What if that rich asshole once worked at the same job as the current cat food eating employee? and then after years of hard work and self development, that one time employee is now a rich asshole running the company.
They created their own opportunity by living in America. This is very Bias of Sarah Silverman to think all rich people had to treat people badly in life in order to make their millions or billions. Hey Sarah here is some advice, why not tell American’s to get a fucking back bone in life and go out and become something because they have the brains or tenacity to pull it off, and not because someone will just give it to them.
I love how rich people are hated in this country but yet most people are dying to win the go damn Powerball once it hits record levels. Get smarter, work harder, America was once called the “Land of Opportunity“…..not the “Land Where you can get free stuff because otherwise you wouldn’t qualify for it.” Hey everyone if that’s the case, I would like to have a brand new Bughatti Veyron, and I would like to be on the same waiting list as all the rich and powerful people out there because…..that is only fair.
Never mind that I cant afford one or QUALIFY for the loan, but I deserve one right? only because they got one, so that means I must be able to have one too. See how dumb that sounds. I haven’t earned the right to that kind of car yet so NO, I don’t deserve it. In terms of education, what ever happened to Pell Grants? don’t we have programs for poor students to get an education? I’m pretty sure we do but….it may not be at the institution you want to attend but oh well, its the education you wanted right?
Go and get it any way you can. Stop playing the victim in life. The rich are not holding you back from anything otherwise could you please explain to me the birth of Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook? That guy came out of nowhere and why? because he has talent and skills that matter in 2016 and because of that, he is rich, and no one held him back that sits at the top 1% in this world. I just can’t see Warren Buffet trying to sabotage Mark Zuckerberg because he feels that Mark is taking money or opportunity away from him.That is what people like Sarah Silverman think. They are convinced that someone out there is taking opportunities from them when in fact that isn’t true.
No one at Facebook eats cat food I can tell you that much. Maybe Sarah Silverman should read some rich people books and read about their stories of how they made themselves into something because this country allowed them certain FREEDOMS that other places don’t and because of that, America is still the land of opportunity……BUT, only if you make it that way for yourself and not blame others for why you can’t advance in life.
If You Lack Money – Start a business from home, sell shit on Ebay, get a part time job, work for tips to make extra cash. Find ways to bring money to you because there are plenty of them. Stop living in the past, you don’t have to always look for a job to earn income unless you are programmed in life to only be an employee then I would say that your fucked because in 2016, way more is demanded of you and if you work your whole life to spend it at just one job……your life is going to suck because that is how you become old news really fast in today’s age. Adapt or Die!
Life itself has become more expensive and jobs are being replaced everyday by new technology and innovation so what’s next? Are you going to start blaming companies and inventors for making your life unfair if they create something that replaces the job you went to school for? That is stupid!, that means you are against progress and innovation. Just because your old school methods and way of thinking are set in stone doesn’t mean that the world stops just for you. Life moves on and if you don’t, you have a price to pay…its called “Being Left Behind”
If You Lack Education – You’re an idiot…literally! The internet is everywhere, start searching for things to learn from each day and stay accountable to always learning new things from new sources. If you suck at math, go and find a math training course on Youtube thats free to better prepare you for that class if need be. Go beyond your comfort zone in life, that is how you find out what you are made VS what you are supposed to be given. Youtube videos alone could keep you learning until the day you die, Start There!
Can’t Afford College? Go to a cheaper one. Take a year off and earn some money then go pay for some classes. It’s called being a responsible adult. If you really want something in life, you will move heaven and earth to obtain it won’t you? This should be no different. Don’t make excuses for not having access to a good education because you lack money, that is insane! Money is a resource and if you lack a certain resource then your skill set at gathering that resource is terrible. Don’t be one dimensional in how you think about earning money, it will be the death of you in this economy.
This is no longer the year 1900 people. When the farmers gave up their land to the big steel companies for a safe and secure job. That is when the American spirit started to officially die because we stopped fighting for our spot in this world. Today we have a country who prides itself on being people who no longer want to work hard for things or feel the need to prove their worth to the world. If you can’t hack it at something then you either lack the talent, the know how, or maybe you are not meant for that life at all? Will blaming others and not looking for solutions help your cause? Will you get any further by doing that? It is very sad that you live in America and you complain that there isn’t opportunity for you like everyone else gets.
You have the same rights as me and all 300 Million+ people in this country. What you do with your rights is up to you. You can either use your freedom to search for ways to get smarter or more skilled so that maybe then you can compete in the market place and offer your skills and knowledge to the world. Listen folks, I know of some rich kids who had trust funds set up for them and they had law school paid for before they were 18. They got out of law school and couldn’t hack it as a lawyer so what did they do? some of them started doing drugs and partying because they had trust fund money to burn.
One of the guys actually took classes on marketing and learned that just because he was a lawyer with a degree, that didn’t mean people wanted to hire him. He had to learn how to get his name out there, how to run ads on websites and more. He took the time to adapt to the world that we now live in and because of that, he increased his chances of making it in life as a lawyer because he constantly works at it what matters in 2016 and not 1916. There are no free rides in life folks, you have to earn your way in life even if you start out with disadvantages such as “You come from a poor family”
I could never be an NBA basketball player. I am pretty good for my height, but no matter how smart about the game I got, I lack the skills to compete so I do not deserve the opportunity to attend a NBA camp. I am not mad that my NBA career will never happen but guess what? I didn’t blame all the other people in the NBA for holding me back in life or making me eat cat food so that they could make it and I couldn’t.
You want to know what gets rewarded in this world now? Results! people who can produce results will always have a seat at the table and why? because they make the world move. They contribute to society and job creation and investments and more. What do people get when they stop trying and only think that they can do so much in life and blame others for their misfortunes?……they get nothing!
You get what you deserve in this life. I have seen way too many feel good stories n my life about a kid from the ghetto who has no dad and a mom who worked 3 jobs just to make ends meet. Let’s say the kid is from the ghetto and he worked hard, got good grades, got some scholarship money and got a degree. The kid made something of himself because he never once believed that he couldn’t pull it off.
Let’s also say that this kid was also an african american kid, he never blamed a rich white guy for his problems, he simply worked hard and became what he set out to be in life. Not once did he ask for a hand out or for free anything. If that kid and millions of others can do it…..why can’t anyone else? I have seen so many sports stars and job career people come from this very same back ground and still make it. Marshawn Lynch of the Seattle Seahawks is one I can think of right off the top of my head. The guy had no chance to become anything and he will now be known as one of the greatest to ever play in the NFL.
The rich are not holding you back in life people. You are holding yourself back by not growing and adapting to the ever changing world. Your ideas about money and job security are old and not valid anymore. Maybe you should time travel back a bit and go wake up your old self and tell it to pay attention to how society is changing and how technology makes the world and everything else more competitive or in your words (Unfair).
You are either moving up in the world and improving as a person, or you are staying the same which means your way of life will no longer be useful to the masses in the next few years because when you operate on limited ideas and limited beliefs, then you will only go so far in life anyway. Don’t blame the rich, blame yourself for not being mentally strong enough to take on the challenges of the world to becoming successful.
If it was easy, everyone would be rich and successful! Don’t hate on others because you can’t find it within yourself to solve the issues you face Vs blaming others for why you can’t get past them.
“You get to where you want to be in life because talent gets you there”
Here is the Sarah Silverman video talking about RICH PEOPLE having to make people eat cat food in order to climb the ladder of success in life…..ENJOY. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dh78x0Pr1s
“Hello Facebook world” I am going to start a home based business and once I make $1000 a month in my business, I will then set out to begin my next set of classes in college without any debt. The road is long but very rewarding, adding a new income stream to my life will be helpful because it will still be there after I graduate in case I can’t find a job right away so its not only smart, but its future retirement planning as well. Wish me luck as I set out to carve out my own path in life and take myself places that I know I can go.
