How not hardly? How so?

You have a ton of preconceived notions, many of which are based on common stereotypes.

Preconceived notions? Stereotypes? I don't think so.

People from all walks of life make bad decisions that lead to bad outcomes. These problems to solve are not one size fits all and I never eluded that they are.

Read this from Forbes.


After reading the Forbes article, I came to the conclusion that non-profits and businesses are creating many NEW opportunities. The Declaration of Independence says our rights to Life, Liberty and the PURSUIT of Happiness (opportunity) come from our Creator. The key word therein is PURSUIT. You have to go after it, it ain't gonna fall in your lap.

you nailed it. [emoticon]

You put nothing in...you get nothing out.

It is not going to fall in your lap.

It's called "blood, sweat, and tears".

And we are all not going to be the CEO of a company.

But that does not mean someone else should pay my bills and GIVE me free stuff if I am not.

Many of people's problems in this world are self inflicted.

And those who truly need the help should get it. Too many liars and cheaters, milking they system and our generousity. Need to put a cap on it and send the message no more.

There are a billion variables we can all be born into. Not everyone gets the easy road, but we all get a road. It's not that hard to be a reasonably productive member of society, the vast majority of people manage to do it. No matter how bad your problems are, someone else has had it worse and succeeded. Saying no opportunity is available is just not trying hard enough except for a tiny few.

Somebody said this thread has become "haves vs have not". Not become, was from jump. Even a post about people that can't afford to park anyplace else causing laws to be passed prohibiting the people that can afford a campground from parking for free.
I have no doubt that my bad decisions have limited my opportunities. But I have to wonder if my lack of education has something to do with me not buying into many of the myths some have posted here.
Myth; Hard work will get you ahead, make you successful and well off. Nobody looks at the reality, most industries or business, the hardest work is done by the lowest paid workers. Compare a CEO to a large company to the janitor that cleans his office. That janitor works hard, and if his work does not meet expectation, say dust on a bookshelf, he is fired, left with nothing. But you say the CEO must make big decisions, has big responsibility. But if the CEO, makes bad decisions, say promise workers retirement benefits the company can't afford, the CEO might loose his job. But he will still most likely to leave with a package that would support the janitor and his grand kids for life. And the retired workers don't get what was promised.
Next myth My taxes are so high because of all the free stuff government gives away Nobody can even think about the fact it has been decided the only people that should pay taxes are the people that work for money. The people who's money works for them are taxed at a lower rate, if at all.
And the big myth; Foreigners are stealing our jobs! No they are not. The company owners and managers, are giving our jobs to the foreigners both here and in their home country. And they are doing it so they keep their high, unearned paycheck.
There are other myths, proved wrong, but brought up again and again. But because the come up at election time I best not list.
