You want my honest opinion, boomerang?
I'd like to know what this guy's really so angry about ... that was the most unfocused, mixed-up angry rant I've heard for a long time. What exactly is he trying to say?
... That if someone works just as hard as "Mr Jenkins" that he might be rich & driving a Rolls Royce, too? What if today's
Mr Jenkins inherited
his wealth, a fortunate accident of the family he was born into, what if "Mr Jenkins" is an obscenely over-paid CEO, whose company's fortunes have gone down the gurgler while his income has sky-rocketed. Lots of those around.
There is no guarantee at all that if you do "work hard" that you will be successful ... there is no guarantee that if you work hard in these tough times that you you'll even hang onto your job, anyway, as your company "downsizes".
So Islamist terrorists (not that I have any more respect for them than I have for him) are motivated by "envy & shame" because following their
god didn't provide them the wealth that Americans enjoy? Hasn't he heard of Iraq & Afghanistan & the rest? Apart from that, which
Americans are so well off in 2011? Quite a few of them aren't. Quite a few of them, through no fault of their own. Quite a few desperately want work & can't get get it. Quite a few work two, three, or more jobs to make ends meet.
I can't figure out, exactly, with his rant has to do with OWS. He doesn't explain that at all. All we learn from him are his biases. He grew up in the 1970s when there was plenty of work around, plenty of opportunities for people to better themselves if they were motivated to ..... He has absolutely no idea how different things are for young people now. Hasn't he heard of the recession?
I'm going to stop here because I'm ranting almost as much as he did.
To me, that was a typical "blame the victims" rant, if times are tough "they only have themselves to blame". And if people experiencing the worst of these tough times object to the economic predicament they had no part in creating, well then, they're just jealous!
I can't stand this guy. He's an ignorant, opinionated buffoon.
