It's a reminder of slavery. Have some compassion.

Who are they kidding though? Obama's the president. No one can get a job unless you're an illegal Mexican lol

I have compassion, and compassion includes holding people accountable for their own actions, and their own successes. And telling people who lie around, commit crimes, and stay drunk/drugged to get jobs is not racist.

And you can create your own business, even if under the table, just don't scam people, hustle/bully people, or sell/provide anything that is inherently illegal. So no sex, no drugs, no stolen property, no firearms, and no illegally copied materials. Instead, use your own brain and own hands to make things and provide legitimate goods and services.

And learn to do without. I am White, and I grew up in a low-income, White trailer park. I was taught from an early age to ignore a lot of desires, needs, and feelings. I was taught not to complain nor feel entitled. I knew what it was like to sweat in thirst, of being subject to home remedies, to doing all of what most people would hire professionals for. I learned from an early age how to do electrical, mechanical, and plumbing work. I learned a bit about making leather goods, and subsistence farming, though to this day, I'm not interested in either. I knew what it was like to yearn for a computer my entire childhood and not have a PC-compatible one until after I left home. I always dreamed of the chance to struggle hard, lift myself by my own bootstraps and to get the privilege of making it on my own without help. I dreamed of making something of myself, and pursuing knowledge merely for the sake of pursuing knowledge.

You do have a point. It seems Obama wrecked the economy to where those who he claims to be helping are actually getting the biggest shaft.

The slavery thing was a joke. I agree with the values you're talking about, but I won't look down my nose at anyone doing anything illegal as long as they aren't hurting you or anyone you care about. Things are hard though. There are other things to do, but "finding a job" isn't that simple. You have to use your head.

Are you really a felon?
If you've already served your time can't you vote?

Yes. I've never been to prison. Just jail and I'm still doing my "time" I guess. I'm not sure if I can once I'm done with it. I didn't think felons could vote at all. Maybe so though. I really have no desire too, or tried though.

Didn't they supply you with an attorney who could tell you what your rights still are? This kind of thing makes me mad at the system. It's as if they just leave people hanging. It's true that felons cannot vote, but after awhile it should seem that you can as long as you're on good behavior.

Keep your head up, and if you can always exercise your right to vote.

You are 100% right. And while I definitely grew up spoiled and entitled I was made to recognized that it was because my mother worked SO hard. So hard, in fact, that we didn't really have a relationship until I was an adult.

My lawyer did tell me some stuff. He was a paid lawyer but he sucked. I was upset about a lot of stuff. And then everything is so unorganized. Thanks for the kind words though man.

As for voting, I think it was a jewish communist who said "If voting could change anything they'd make it illegal". I would rather them know I'm not fooled into caring by not voting.

I know I didn't get my point across properly.

What I mean is...I was definitely spoiled as a child, but I recognized that hard work and sacrifice went into it. I knew that nothing I got was by magic. You know? Nice clothes and cool things didn't come out of thin air. It was because my mother wanted me to live well and have nice things. And I learned that if you want to live well you have to be prepared to work hard and live well because I wouldn't always have my parents to get everything FOR me.

American politics is designed to give us the illusion that we have a choice. But compared to other countries the US political parties are extremely similar. i can assure you, that regardless of who is elected, the rich people have what they want.

I guess. I'm new to parenting, but I don't think kids have to value material possessions. When I was 4 I was just as happy with some used junk toy from the flea market my grandparents bought me for a quarter as I was anything else. At least for about an hour until I got bored with it.

Kids go to school though, and they are influenced by peers and taught to want to dress a certain way and everything else. If they aren't influenced like that, I think kids can grow up happy having little.

I've always felt that way. The media is the same way, no matter which group is supposed to be in power, there is always something that is supposed to be the illusion of dissent. That's why I never bought into the whole "if you don't vote you don't have the right to complain" thing. I think anyone who doesn't vote, and doesn't legitimize the process by doing it, are the ones who do have a right to complain.

Oh yeah. I thought I was doing well when I was in public school, then I went to private school when I was 8 and I realized how good someone else had it. It only created someone else to keep up with. And by 8 I was aware of class difference. In public school, I had money. In private school, I might as well have been poor.

I guess those same slovenly blacks that complained about such horrible racist graffiti on the sidewalks are the same ones complaining about not finding jobs too, well here's your first job Sammy, clean up that horrible racist graffiti that offends you so easily, I guess even when the truth is so glaringly obvious you still won't do anything to contribute to society, you useless good for nothing welfare blacks sicken me, I wish you would all just die off already.

Some colored guys just filled a pothole in front of my house. There's ALWAYS a job with the city, state, or federal gummints. Just look at my local Post Office; it's 80% black.
