2. It's really gotta be something to have never been just a regular guy.
People like Robme would kill themselves if they got cut down to my income level. The live in fear that we want what they've got. Sure I could use more money, but he can't have any more fun than I can doing what I really like to do. Floating a river with a cold beverage and a good cigar! I'd still want to do that no matter how much money I had. I could use a few hundred bucks worth of new equipment, but it wouldn't really improve the experience any.
I'd just like to be able to feel I was going to still be able to afford to go out and float and fish for as long as I'm healthy enough. What that would take is nothing to the 1% but to help us out a little is a nightmare to them. What they should be afraid of is driving us down far enough that more people really get desperate. Then the shit hits the fan and it stays hit!
