They're not ALL fat cats.
Maybe the Occupiers should focus their attention on something useful, like paying taxes…
Just a thought…
Maybe Occupiers should focus their attention on something useful… like PAYING TAXES.
Right. We should forget about our outrage at the unconscionable uses our tax dollars are put to or the unfairly balanced system of taxation itself, shut our mouths and work hard to pay more taxes. WTF? Why do you people even come here?
This is really stupid….
Yeah I know! Welcome to reality.
Maybe Derp Cat should have stayed in school and got an eduction. Maybe then Derp Cat could have got good grades and got a scholarship and went to post secondary school.
With hard work, Derp Cat could have graduated with good grades and increased his chances of getting a sweet job. Then, while he may still have some dept, as we all do as a fact of life, he could now afford that cheeseburger.
What is the lesson Derp Cat? Don’t take more than you can afford, get an education, and seriously, be a tad more money smart and never take anything without understanding what you’re getting into
Poor Derp Cat…we should all feel sad.
Best case scenario, sure. It doesn’t work out that way for everyone. Sometimes you work hard, get good grades, get a degree and still end up working a low paid job, wondering how you will pay off your student loan on a salary that isn’t enough to support rising costs of housing, food and transportation. You wonder why, though you are doing the work on the front lines of company operations that directly supports the entire foundation of the pyramid, the guy at the top gets a bonus worth more than your annual income. And because you have already taken more than you can afford to receive that education, you are in very heavy debt. And you are dismissed and treated with contempt by the very people you directly support by your work.
We reject the notion that debt is a fact of life. Our culture has instilled this idea in us but it is wrong. There was a time when hard work and determination was all it took. We are working to raise awareness in the hope that we may return to such a time.
We reject the notion that if an individual is not “money smart” they don’t deserve a decent quality of life. Our culture itself is not money smart or we wouldn’t be facing the problems that we are. I think it’s funny in a sad way that people object to their tax dollars funding social programs to assist those who have nothing, yet they don’t have any trouble at all with the fact that the reason they must pay high taxes is so those who have everything can have even more. That’s real money smart, eh Phat Cat? Good thing everyone isn’t money smart like that or it would already be too late.
