Everyone knows the problem with poor people. I know some really ridiculously rich people who travel all the time. I ask myself, "What economic function or purpose does this person have that makes them so much better or wealthier than me?" And nine times out of ten, they just knew someone who let them tap into wealth. There's no function, no nothing. They never seemed to experience the slavery I experience on a day to day basis. Then I look at myself, where I have had so many failures and I try to overcome personal setbacks, etc. It gets me kind of upset. How do I transform myself to get out of slavery and build a work ethic, schedule, and life that I -really- like? Every time I get into the groove and think things are going to work out, something derails and I fail. Either the government steps in, or a lawsuit rolls around, or I hit some kind of personal dilemma. There's a real glass ceiling out there, and I don't think it's necessarily based on race or gender or anything. It's like the system mysteriously knows how to kick me back into mediocrity. There's no way these rich people are that much more determined than I am. They are often lazier than me. Are they more willing to ass-kiss? I don't get it.
