For the next four years I will make sure my income does not rise to a level that will require me to pay any taxes.
(…) the majority of the poor in this country are poor because they chose to be poor. That’s right – they chose to be poor. I was poor once because of certain circumstances but I chose not to remain poor. I could have taken up drinking or drugs or wasting money on parties and self-gratification – but I didn’t. I have been unemployed a number of times in my life and I was even bankrupt back in 1975, I know what it is like, so please don’t give me any “if only you could walk in their shoes…”.
I know it’s not a pleasant thing to say, but if you are able bodied and you live in this country and you can’t find a job then move to where there are jobs for which you are qualified. Not qualified for any job? Then go to any Home Depot and see how Mexican immigrants who have no education, no skills, and can’t even speak English manage to do it.
Of course my advice to those poor who like being poor is moot for the next four years because President Obama will be cutting up the great American pie making sure everyone gets a slice. This will only go on for as long as the people who make the pie are willing to keep on baking.
I’ve already made sure no one takes any of my pie.
