Gut Rumbles

quote of the day

"You know why I have more money, more stuff? I gave up my life for it. I work 60-70 and sometimes 80 hours a week for it. I have no wife, no girlfriend, no dog. I have a few friends whom I rarely get to see because I'm at work. I missed the opening game Red Sox vs Rangers (free ticket) because I was at work. I visit my family, my 81 year old mother less than once a year because I'm at work. I do this blog from work. My house got robbed last Tuesday while I was at work. I suppose the robber doesn't have a job because he robbed me during business hours. (robbing you IS his "job"--ed)He doesn't need a job, I gave him a guitar, three bottles of whiskey and a jar full of change, because I wasn't at home. I gave him a CD player and some tools because I have a Jeep with no top. He was coming back to make another withdrawal from the bank of Knine... Maybe a DVD player or a TV.

That's one of the biggest things that kills me about all the politicians for this "undocumented worker amnesty" bullshit. "They do the work Americans won't do" Well you pompus piece of offal, the reason American's won't do it is because we pay them not to. (emphasis mine--ed... the truth NEEDS to be in bold letters.) Why in Hell do we have unemployment at the same time we have "jobs that American's won't do"? Because we have created a generation of "entitled people". They want their welfare check. They want their unemployment benefits. The government owes me. You owe me."--- dead dog walking

The most abused word in the English language today is "rights." Listen to the idiots among us. You have a "right" to a living wage, which means somebody is obligated to hand you CEO wages for mucking toilets. You have a "right" to breathe clean air and drink clean water. WTF?? You have a "right" to a job, and you have a "right" to get paid for NOT doing it.

Bullshit. You have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We may be shitting all over "liberty" today, but you still can pursue happiness. That doesn't mean that you're gonna FIND IT, because you have NO RIGHT to be happy. You have to get off your dead ass and GRAB happiness.

Never confuse "rights" with "I want that!!!" They ain't the same things.

I've noticed in MY life that the only things I ever got were things I worked for. When I was a kid, my father often pissed me off when I drooled over a new toy or a new bike. "Buy it for me!" I wheedled. "Earn the money and buy it yourself," he replied. "You'll appreciate it more that way."

I didn't understand at the time, but my father was correct. Most people today obviously didn't have the kind of father I did. They want something for nothing and they expect to get it. It's their "right."

There is nothing I despise more in this world than a vandal or a thief. That's tough luck for me, because we've institutionalized both practices now, thanks to craven politicians and their demanding minions.

So, a LOT of people sit on their asses and whine a LOT. They're too got-dam sorry and cowardly to go out and steal for themselves. They demand that the government do the stealing for them. And it does.

That just ain't "right."


I live in Canada but I agree 100%. I would be a lazy ass too but I'm not. I know too many who are. I think welfare should be a temporary thing. Three years max or possibly 4 for a mom with a new kid (I know she can just have another...)Enough time to get retrained in a new field. Make them relocate if necessary - help with moving costs - get their asses working. When our welfare people are considered rich by the world's standards, there's something terribly wrong.

True, the whole "living wage" thing is bullshit. That being said, the best way to raise wages is to cut off the unflux of illegals, deport those who are here, and fine the shit out of companies that circumvent the law of supply and demand with cheap labor from third world countries with people who live in mud huts next to shit-filled rivers.

Corporate lobbiests should be lobbying the guvment to outlaw welfare to able-bodied folks rather than for open borders and more "worker visas."

Wow. Geez. Allow me to say that I am honored, genuinely honored, to have been quoted here. Typos and everything.

I do hope that the next rights the guy who robbed my house gets are the right to remain silent, and the right to an attorney... unless I catch him and it will be the priviledge of medical care.

I look very forward to meeting you and shaking your hand next week.

A post that should be on the front page of every news paper in the country, but it won't. That would scare or insult the poor welfare riders.

If we cut off the welfare- ALL OF IT, including corporate and agricultural subsidies- the alien problem would disappear. Americans willing to do the jobs would magically appear, and the hungry foreigners would stop coming.
