I am grateful that long ago and far away, it was once possible to work a minimum wage job and pay state tuition and books. If you clipped coupons and used a motorcycle to hit all the grocery stores for their sales. No grants or scholarships my youthful decisions did not deserve.
My shabby cloths and poor eating habits certainty did not impress the girls. But I was too tired anyways.
Opportunity is the key. Always has been. Otherwise all a government does is keep citizens as captives.
Norris- Sorry to burst your bubble. You just confirmed that "Government" helped you immensely. Government established that minimum wage. Government provided the low cost state college. In addition, big bad Government provided the roads you rode your motorcycle on. It is your conservative friends who want to cut funding for education, keep the minimum wage as low as possible, and who fight to the death any time the crazy liberals ask for increased infrastructure spending.
