FK – I knew here was something about you. You’re part Kentuckian.
My parents were both factory workers or ‘blue collar.’ Their parents were essentially subsistence farmers or less. I’ve heard all about the not-so-good-ol-days.
My greatest fear was always that I would end up like my parents. My experience working ‘blue collar’ jobs and delivering freight and seeing many such facilities have proven my fears to be legitimate.
Most factories in Kentucky don’t even pay the $15 minimum wage the commies want while expecting their workers’ lives(very loosely defined) to revolve around helping their employers and their stockholders get richer. How people survive with mortgage, rent, car payments, kids, whatever on that kind of money is beyond me.
I call them the ‘working poor.’ While not ‘impoverished’ necessarily anyone who could quickly become so by losing a ‘job'(just over broke) is definitely among the working poor and that would probably include many who consider themselves to be middle class because they often go into debt for houses, cars, boats, whatever that take up much of their income so in effect they’re working to enrich their bosses and the banksters.
High school graduation means nothing now. My mother graduated high school in the 50s with about 30 or so fellow grads if memory serves. My class of 1980 had 200. Now Kentucky forces all students to ‘stay in school’ until age 18.
How many are just ‘literate’ enough to read their electric bill and not much else? How many can do math without their fingers and toes or a calculator?
Hell, what does a college degree mean now?
Someone was once quoted as saying “The poor you shall always have with you.” He allegedly said it in a very matter of fact way.
We have govt. schools because a percentage of the population would not make sure their kids even learned the ‘basics,’ whatever those really are. The govt. schools should not be in the business of making good worker bees and compliant taxpayers. But that’s what our masters want and most of their victims never ask the right questions and most teachers are only slightly less ignorant than the masses and are only regurgitating what they’ve been spoon fed.
While taking a ‘basic’ math course in college we studied some of the same things my ‘basic’ high school math covered, including compound interest and 30 year mortgages. I had watched my mother die at age 39 from cancer and my father was then or not much later disabled by asthma.
Those events combined with the fatalism I was raised in told me what a rip off our ‘system’ is. Now as someone in the ‘youth of old age’ I see many who have lost their health to working to make those payments for decades so what did they really gain?
But then the sad truth is that many who ‘work jobs’ all their days wouldn’t do much else if not forced to and would cling tightly to their natural-born ignorance all their days.
As always it’s up to that tiny minority to inch humanity forward, while most of the rest waste their time here waiting for the world to end or making it end, for themselves and others.
The ‘other’ side of the fence:
FK – The welfare state was created in order to breed inter-generational parasites that would be dependable voters. So at least part of it is a ‘conspiracy.’
The ancients knew single parent homes and fatherless children are bad for the tribe, the culture and the larger ‘civilization.’ Our modern creators of the ‘great society’ or whatever knew exactly what they were doing.
And this has harmed poor whites as well.
Who is teaching them to call you ‘coon’ and why and who or what is paying for it?
And then we have this:
FK – This guy is just as clueless as the the ‘snowflakes’ but in a different way.
What does ‘We the People’ actually mean?
It means we are responsible…
We have a representative republic, guaranteed to every state, not a democracy.
We have a Bill of Rights that acknowledges rights we are born with, not granted or created by any government.
We vote with the knowledge that voting is the most violent act anyone can participate in because voting is electing someone to hire someone to stick a government gun in our neighbors’ faces and force our version of reality on them at the threat of their very lives.
We stand ready to protect our Liberty and the Liberty of our neighbors, not destroy it, via any version of authoritarianism, of any age or place.
We are prepared with knowledge and force of arms to make war against and kill if necessary those who would destroy our Bill of Rights whether they represent domestic or foreign enemies.
We do not lie to ourselves, our families, our friends, our business associates, our descendants, our enemies, about these things and do not EVER tolerate those who would have us do so.
If the troops were fighting for our freedom they’d all be here.
Not all ‘vets’ will fight for Liberty:
FK – So are they really commies or being paid to ‘protest’ or whatever they’re really doing there, uh stir up shit for the cameras?
They’re commie globalists. There’s nothing liberal or progressive about them. Calling them by their cute names helps them hide their evil.
