When you are choking down a big schlong one, do you ever get the urge to PUKE?

You mean as you are currently choking with your own vile coming out of your mouth due to the envy you have?
"White privilege" is the liberal religion's version of Original Sin: you are born guilty, and you carry that burden of guilt all your life, and the only way to escape eternal damnation is for white people confess their sin, to bow, kneel and believe the dogma of the Church of Liberalism, genuflect at its altars, honor its saints, fill the collection plate, and never, ever doubt.

Never count on doing business with the government to work out in your favor.

How rich and how poor?

How did you go from poor to rich and vice versa?

Whats the new plan, or is it just supreme confidence in your ability?

Did you grow up poor or rich?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27627548


Excellent questions.

1) I grew up middle class, son of engineer and teacher parents.
2) I paid my own way through college but ended up dropping out and doing stuff completely unrelated to my degree. Later in life in got my Masters and PhD as a sort of hobby.
3) I have been self-employed since I was 16.
4) I didn't get "rich" until the 1990's during the tech boom.
5) Divorce cost me basically everything. Whatever I had left got embezzled by my ex business partner.
6) Went to work for other people for about 7 years, totally wasting my life and treading water financially.
7) Started an endeavor with a dear friend, and it's about to pay off hugely.

I am unable to feel envy, I can only feel frustration with my self when I don't reach the goals I wish to achieve. I am certainly happy that any good person does good in life, the day that doesn't happen our world will be certainly in a sad state of affairs. That day is near unfortunately if things continue as they are.
