The results are in. 51% of Americans voted themselves a handout. At least they are hoping for a handout. The 51% are hoping that our new President taxes the "rich" business owners like he said that he would. All of those "wealthy" business owners that gross 250K from their businesses better look out.
So what kind of handouts is he going to give everyone? Is he going to pay our mortgages so we can sit on our asses and play computer games all day? Is he going to pay for able bodied young men to shack up with their "welfare mommas"? Are the producers of this country going to basically pay for those who refuse to work? I think it will be all of the above plus more. Lots more.
America has spoken. They have chosen security over the chance to get ahead. $18/hour, a living wage as they call it, will become the best that we can hope for. Sell yourself for $18 per hour and some good benefits. That way you can live a decent mediocre life and play computer games when you get home. That way you can party every night and not have to worry about anything. Yep, $18 per hour is very secure. I guess lofty goals are out with Americans now.
The reward for busting your rear has now been lowered. "Hey young person, if there was a chance that you could work 18 hours a day for 7 days a week, for 20 years and retire wealthy, would you take it? Or would you rather work 40 years at $18 per hour? Nice and safe, but no chance to ever really get ahead. Your choice." It looks like the secure thing just won out.
