DesertStixI don’t think that his point is to “magically fix it” because we all know that’s impossible. I’m pretty sure he’s just saying that he doesn’t mind helping others if he can and doesn’t understand why not everyone feels the same. The counter argument of whataboutism regarding poor people all over the world distracts from the specific conversation we’re having about income inequality in the US. Like, of course people all over the world need help but you have to fix your own shit first before you can help others.
Youre a fucking idiot.
about 2 billion humans on this planet would fight eachother to the death over the prize of getting to be a poor person in america.
theres countries where men (and boys) carry 200 pounds of sulfur on their back 12 Miles over the rim of an active volcano so the can sell the sulfur to a buyer for about 5 cents which is enough to buy a couple handfuls of rice that barely keep him and his family from starving to death. The sulfur vents in the volcano burn these guys lungs as they dig the sulfur deposits out; these guys will usually die young because of all the burns and scarring in their lungs.
meanwhile, americans on welfare and food stamps are buying jordans. They do nothing, and they can still afford 500$ shoes and all the food they want so they can become obese. And when they become obese they can just use their free healthcare to get a stomach reduction surgery which costs something like half a million dollars. But they get it for free.
You say> “You have to fix your own shit first before you can help others”
oh really desertstix? Do we need to make sure americans on welfare can afford more fucking jordans?
do you realize that the welfare check that comes every 2 weeks in america is more money (even with currency buying power adjusted) than about 2 billion humans WILL EARN DURING THEIR ENTIRE LIVES.
i believe the poor in america should be taken care of and helped at a healthy/reasonable level, but at a certain point you have to stop and check your spoiledness.
jesus christ desertstix. I may be a pussy, but your brain is a fucking joke
