An oxymoron from a socialist perspective but, true none the less.

Waffler, Smith, Arkansas

The joy of enjoying the fruits of your own labor especially physical labor such as your own food produce or furniture etcetera cannot be overestimated. True independence means to be able to fend for yourself. Tell this to the inheritors of daddie's wealth, whether it be from a government or a relative. And the true joy may not be in the completion but in the activity of striving.

Waffler? Republican for a day?

Waffler, Smith, Arkansas

Yeah Warren Democrats have never worked a day in their lives and all that Republicans due is clip stock coupons. Some folk always fall for stereotypes. I think the best attitude is to be hard on oneself and easy on others. Thus I would make the emphasis to work hard yourself not to make sure the other guy works hard.
