How come when they give 1.9 trillion in tax cuts to the rich it's "good for the economy" but whenever we stop screwing over regular people or invest in the country as a whole "that's going to cause massive inflation"? What gives?
It’s time we propose a bill to get all people over 80 out of Congress. We force people out of the military at 62. Serving beyond ones time is a sheer act of narcissism. The world is changing too fast to have a collection of 70-80 year olds making all the important decisions.
I wake up happy everyday. I get emotional seeing my kid’s laugh & play. It took 30+ years to get here. Lost a lotta homies on the way. I choose this life over anything 100x. Being broke will never ever be cool. But if you don’t give back or share the wealth then what’s the point?
YOU can change your life for the better, but you’re gonna have to miss parties, probably not have any friends and family around. Probably lose some friends through the process. The choice is yours. Most aren’t built for it. They just want success to magically happen.
