Hello America Welcome to Poverty.
Complain, Complain, Complain
So many people go around worrying about trying to keep up their extravagant lives that they conveniently forget those who have nothing. The poverty levels in America today are horrendous. I mean you got celebrities and government officials out there who make billions yet they complain about everything, as if they are never satisfied, must be a pretty vapid existence if you have everything you ever wanted, but still find flaws in every single little detail in your life. They should try living on the salary of a poor, working class, American family with children, who have nothing, but want nothing more than to keep her children safe and healthy. I doubt most of them would make it one minute living on wages like that, later on a whole day.
Look I am not saying rich people should give all their money away to the poor, that would be ridiculous. I just wish they would stop all their dang complaining. I just once want to hear a rich billionaire say I am so grateful for everything, and actually give from the heart, without counting it as a tax write off. Or by getting other people who are not nearly wealthy as them to donate, then give the donation as if the money came from themselves. Now that is greedy and deceitful. I myself have worked for some big companies in my life that did just that.
Give compassion another try, you might end up pleasantly surprised
I really feel for the poor, and it sickens me to hear people put them down. They get treated like dogs. People put them down them and act like they are a plague. Personally, I think sorry heartless people are the ones who should be avoided. You never know when the table could turn, it could very well be you. Not all poor people sit on their butts, and live the high-life, as a matter of fact, most of them work all the time. The only reason they get free government assistance is because they couldn't make it on their small paychecks alone. I mean this whole trend of putting people down for getting food-stamps is ridiculous, most people are embarrassed they even need them.
We all need to learn to have some compassion for tragedy and hardships put upon others. We are here to all share the world, and the only way to live a happy life is to have compassion and love for everyone in it.
