Not a fan of the Kennedy family in the least, but I can’t help thinking the late JFK would be considered a moderate Republican by modern standards.
This infamous quote comes to mind as I think about the refusal of Americans to go back to work without outrageous salary demands for entry level jobs with nary the thought of working hard to prove their ability. Whatever happened to meritocracy?
This isn’t how capitalism works people and I take a page from the military playbook. No stars without accomplishment!
I know of what I speak. When I started my entry level job in retail, I was literally considered poor as a church mouse. That was okay because I had no luxurious demands at that age and I was just thrilled at the opportunities I knew awaited me.
Two years later, due to my own acumen and my 60-70 hours/weekly of hard work, I was making six figures annually and could afford to live without three roommates.
This is how the capitalist story always plays out and I belligerently ask “What the hell do you people not understand?”
