Sometimes, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary to shut the hell up, stop occupying everywhere and tea partying everything, stop waving our guns and religion and crying about who gets taxed what, stop blaming terrorists, politicians, climate change, bankers, socialists and everyone who doesn’t agree with us for all our problems, and take a good long look at ourselves and the way we live.
Everyone’s been crying poverty for the last three years, but let’s see how broke we really are. Raise your hand if you pay for a cell phone each month. Raise your hand if you pay for Internet access. Raise your hand if you pay for TV. Raise a hand for all your credit cards, car insurance, health insurance, mortgage, HOA dues, print and online subscriptions, gym membership, sewer, trash, electricity, lawn care, gas and every other monthly expense you’ve signed up for.
