This one’s hard to read but it ends with:
"After I graduated, I was promoted to plant packaging operations supervisor. I held the same position at two subsequent employers before being laid off from the last employer. My current job I am a packaging machinery maintenance mechanic. Having been in this position 9 years, I was told at the beginning of 2011 that in December 2012 the plant I work at will close.
I have a wife, two children, a mortgage, and regular bills. We are responsible with our money. We have invested and saved. Has it been easy? No. This beautiful country, the United States of America, offers everyone opportunity. But you have to want it. You have to earn it. I truly feel sorry for those who protest this country as they do not have one single solitary idea how damn lucky they are to be in the United States of America. I busted my ass and earned my way through life. Quit whining and bitching, get off your ass and go earn your way through life.
Why would you even include “My plant is gonna close.” in a “Fuck you, I managed to succeed” post? Why would you highlight the fact that your position in industrial manufacturing depends on greater economic forces over which you have no control? Why would you undermine yourself like that? Well, probably because your core political beliefs are founded on the ”fuck you” not the ”I managed to succeed.”

If you are gonna die with debt you fail at this game even using your own fucked up value system. Christ.
Your bailout is called “death.”

There are about 10000 actual changes that have been proposed btw, but I’m just saving this for the next time a conservative makes a dig on art school students. Can someone tell me what exactly this is?

It’s kinda tragic that there are people who believe that they gained ‘skills’ from a BA in business.
Outside of a few snobby schools, it’s basically comparable to a BA in poetry! Just less interesting! That’s why you had to spend even more time and money as a grad student “studying business.”
You studied business for 10 years and came out working “on the bottom.” That’s your success story?
And, this was all before the recession, of course.
