"Nobody Owes You Anything"
Wow -- whoever wrote this piece was clearly on a roll!
"Nobody owes you anything. In this life we get nothing except through effort and hard work."
I have BREAKING NEWS for all those that want to erase American history during the day or in the dead of night:
If you take down every statue on the continent, slavery and the American Civil War will still have happened.
If you have minimum wage skills now, taking downstatues won't change that.
If you're up to your ass in college loan debt, taking downstatues won't change that.
The nation will still be -$20,000,000,000,000 in (Obama) debt.
We will still be in a global economy.
North Korea will still be run by a lunatic who wants you dead.
Radical Islamists will still want you dead.
People who hate you now, will still hate you, perhaps even more.
Soros, Obama and the Clinton's will still be sleazy and corrupt and you'll still be just a puppet for them.
The Department of Education will still not have educated anyone.
There will still be only two genders.
Abortion will still be murder.
Hillary will still not have won the 2016 election!
Bernie will still be a communist charlatan.
There will still be opposing views outside your safe spaces.
You'll still be accountable for your own choices, and the world will still owe you nothing.
Taking down all the statues will still not change the fact that Communism has been responsible for more slavery and death than the Confederacy ever was and that it was Democrats who fought to KEEP slavery while Republicans fought to stop it.
The removal of statues won't change the fact that the first slave owner was a black man.
So, if you have a problem with a statue of Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville, Virginia, but no issues with a statue of Vladimir Lenin in Seattle, Washington, we'll erect a monument to your cowardice and depict a huddled mass of frightened and drooling idiots who can't find their asses with both hands and a map.
Oh, and Donald J. Trump is STILL PRESIDENT!
Oh, and Donald J. Trump is STILL PRESIDENT!
“Nobody Owes You Anything”
If I paid for it in advance somebody owes me something even if it’s just my money back.
The first slave owners were Muslims. Every slave’s first owner was an Arab.
The last slave owners in the USA - were in New Jersey.
Good catch;) Admonition should perhaps have been;
“As an American - Nobody owes you Anything - with Freedom comes Responsibility.
Yes, and I owe nobody anything for things that OTHER people did. And it doesn’t matter if I descended from them or not. Guilt is NOT passed down in the genes, and it certainly doesn’t jump to people with White skin when they come over to this country from another country and are placed in the category “White.”
The people who parade around with feathers on their heads, and colored paint on their faces and yell against Columbus Day did not inherit anything from the early Native Americans. They are Americans like me. They do not deserve pity or money from me. If they would act like Americans they would be doing well, but they choose not to.
Reality is what it is.
If you don't believe me...wait and see.
Reality bats last. And it always wins.
I wished I could thought of it. Great Post
#1 Reason Youre Not As Successful As You Should Be Laziness You have to work your ass off but, there needs to be a certain amount of laziness. Like work smarter than the other guy laziness and get more done, in less time and higher quality. When you master that you will find yourself at ease knowing you can take time off to have fun because you have fun just as hard as you work.
#2 Reason Youre Not As Successful As You Should Be Entitlement Skip it lazy ass. You ain't entitled to Shiiite. PERIOD or even EVUH. You will earn every penny and own the sweat from it.
#3 Reason Youre Not As Successful As You Should Be Fear Yep, you are a Fraidy Cat. Get over it. Just move, Just do it, act like you can. Pretend you are Bruce Lee.
#4 Reason Youre Not As Successful As You Should Be Negativity Get rid of dream killers, stop listening and reading the news. If it gets bad enough, someone will tell you. Then again, you might want to be informed but, with all the negative crap that happens in a day, accept its existence and resist until you are so rich you can throw away bars of soap when the letters wear off. Then you can pay some other jerkoff to worry about crap that really doesn't matter.
#5 Reason Youre Not As Successful As You Should Be Stop Thinking You are so smart!!! Sure you are. Stuff it. The bottom line? Only an intended outcome matters and results that are meaningful and measurable matter more than your being the smartest person in the room. Let the smartest person in the room take a paycheck from the guy who gets it done and rides private jet cuz commercial is a hassle.
#6 Reason Youre Not As Successful As You Should Be No Goals Pretty much. You just don't think much further than next months rent. You gotta be sexy, bold, courageous and think about 5 years from now. Dream it, what does it mean to you, what will it feel like when you get there, smell it, feel it, Live itl
#7 Reason Youre Not As Successful As You Should Be They FK em. "They" will always take advantage of you or get in your way. Ignore them, push past them and climb your mountain.
#8 Reason Youre Not As Successful As You Should Be No X Factor You do have to work harder than pretty people but most pretty people know they have an advantage and never excel at much. Don't believe me? Explain all the ugly people who are rich.....
#9 Reason Youre Not As Successful As You Should Be Time Waste Don't excel at low value activities. Excel at activities which push or move you closer to your goal.
#10 Reason Youre Not As Successful As You Should Be Social B.S. Yawn. Most people aren't even interesting. Start by blowing off the ones you have wanted out of your life for while anyway and see how you fill that space they have been wasting.
#11 Reason Youre Not As Successful As You Should Be Think Small Waste of time to dream about a new Miata, except if it's your dream then start there but think "What if I could Pay Cash?" What would that feel like? "Hey!!! I won't worry about bill collectors" . Me? I dream big and visualize. Today I finally acquired a watch I spent two years trying to get. I collect Omega watches and decided I wanted to collect Omega watches designed for the Olympics. I now have the 2010 Vancouver Seamaster, my 4th Seamaster. You can see one here http://www.selectism.com/2009/02/18/omega-seamaster-diver-watch-for-vancouver-2010/ You are not me, so you will probably not ever own this time piece(Just my ego and I am so pumped, get over it. I'll be humble tomorrow). they only made 2010 of these and I am only one of some 2000 men who have this...IN THE WORLD! HA, HA HAAAA!!!!! I love this thing!!!!
I am getting the Lillihammer 1994 Omega in a day or two. Not limited but comes with 5 different kewel Alligator bands and I want the blue one.
#12 Reason Youre Not As Successful As You Should Be Dont Want It Early bird will take an ass kicking by the hungry bird. You have to want it so bad you can taste it. The only people who get what they want are those who need it so bad they will work their buttocks off to????????? What to do you want? Why do you want it? What will it mean to you? What will mean if you can't have it? You are the only person stopping you.
That's my rewrite. Hope no one minds. I am so high because I got this watch! I hope to meet another man wearing it while I'm wearing mine. I'll buy him a drink and we'll laugh because we both have a fabulous watch collection and we'll try to impress each other with our stupid crap.
Can't wait to meet that guy.
Wrote this a few years back and probably should update it...
“Life isn’t about finding yourself, Life is about Creating yourself” George Bernard Shaw.
I’m sure the SCOUTUS can find something hiding about the umbra...
I saw the eclipse and it was TOTAL!
Wrong, wrong, wrong. The Romans, for one, enslaved numerous peoples during its existence and they weren't Muslims.
The Greeks/Spartans enslaved people as well and they weren't Muslims either.
You can go back as far as Sumer and find slavery.
Ancient Mesopotamian Warfare
Don't spread ignorance.
I think you didn’t get the point the author is making.
Add the Egyptians as waaay back slave owners.
Beg to differ. Slavery goes way, way back. I’m not sure when it started, probably when the first bully decided he could treat other humans as property. For the sake of argument let’s say six thousand years. Islam goes back what? Thirteen hundred years or so? Granted the Islamic position on slavery, and many other issues, is sickening. Yet, it is seemingly ignored by most of the world. Islamic treatment of women is, in reality, no better than slavery. Do all of you feminists and socialists really understand that? Apparently not.
It is most likely that many mooselimbs favour communism as it comes closer to the tenets Islam than it does to capitalism, or so it seems to me. Then again I could be wrong. All I know is that both communism and Islam suck - IMHO.
Thank you for the clarification. Had I been more conscientious I might have said something like:
“Every American slave’s captor was, first, an Arab. Yes, there were slaves before American and/or colonial slaves, and yes, many were born into captivity, and yes, there were slaves before and after, but the job of capturing slaves in Africa for shipmant to the New World was a Muslim / Arab job, and yes, it wasn’t a “new world” to everyone, and yes, there were exceptions.”
And yes, you were far better off in the American South as a slave than you were anywhere else.
Ha! Thanks for posting.
