Bill Whittle is one of my favorite conservative pundits for a couple of reasons. He is soft spoken (no flame throwing there), always takes the high ground (no name calling or wrestling in the mud), but most of all, he is usually right. Here is his latest, yes it sucks:
Some other rather sucky things to ponder:
Debt sucks, because sooner or later you have to pay it back.
Working sucks, trading 8 plus hours of your valuable time in exchange for the ability to buy things you need. It would be much easier (and less sucky) if we were given these things by a benevolent government, leaving us all our free time for American Idol, internet porn, and tweeting about our worthless lives.
It sucks that I can’t live on Glenfiddich, triple cheeseburgers with chessy fries, toritos, and Red Bull, without dropping dead of a coronary or clogged arteries.
It sucks that stupid people get to vote, conversely it sucks that people on the dole and not net contributors get to vote, where is the fairness in that?
It sucks that manufacturers and makers of stuff I need (want) get to decide how much I have to pay for that, if the customers is always right, why can’t I get those new Nike’s for 20 bucks instead of a C note?
It sucks that we can’t do “do overs” with contracts and obligations. Is it my fault that the bank tricked me, actually giving a dead beat like me a mortgage (and an obligation to pay that mortgage)? bastards.
And life in general sucks, people don’t always do what you want, relationships are hard and takes effort, that undeserving prick in the cubicle next to yours just got the promotion that you deserved, your taxes are too high, stuff costs too much, our body’s are frail and sometimes break down, your kids grow up and decide to think for themselves, the collective keeps nominating idiots into public office, then one day you die and the government puts it’s hand out for an unfair portion of what your earned, making your family survivors’’ lives miserable.
Gee, thanks, Bill.
