I'm so tired of the Republican meme, "if you work hard, you can achieve anything"


Tell that to the single mom who has to work two minimum-wage part-time jobs to feed herself and her children, and sometimes she still goes to bed hungry at night.

Tell that to the Iraq vet who comes home and can't get a job because of his extreme PTSD, and has to live on the streets.

Tell that to the recent college grad who has to take a low-paying job she's over-qualified for because she can't find a job in her chosen field. She has to live with her parents because she can't afford a place of her own due to enormous student loan debts.

All these people want is a good life, and to get ahead in life for once, and Republicans tell them, "well you just aren't working hard enough".

Republicans' motto should be, "I've got mine, so FUCK YOU!".

I for one, am tired of busting my butt every day, for my meager paycheck, only to be told "I'm not working hard enough."

My lunch break is almost over, so I'm going to end my rant here. Just wanted to get that off my chest.
