An undeniably large part of what keeps poverty going is the fact that there are people who think that if they vote with the rich they’ll somehow magically become the rich. The trouble is, rich people don’t vote. They own.
"Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat, but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires."
(Quote attributed to John Steinbeck but is under dispute. Regardless, it’s still true.)
It’s so weird, this literally came out of nowhere. She’s a friend of a co-worker, and I met her a couple of times (literally, twice), and the next thing I know, I’m unknowingly asking her out. I didn’t know this person existed 2 weeks ago. We go on a date, and we hit it off PERFECTLY. I seriously can’t imagine a first date going off better. A woman we met at the baseball game told us we were so cute together and so much fun, and that we should get married.
It’s so strange to me BECAUSE this came out of nowhere. There’s the girl I’ve been trying to court for months now, who’s just been sleeping on me hardcore (still to this day I can’t tell if she’s just not interested, or she’s just playing), and just like that, here’s this new girl. Awkward still, we ran into the other girl on our way to the game. Maybe it’s not awkward at all, I was getting tired of how ambiguous things were with the original girl, and I was just getting tired of whatever the hell it was that was going on. This new girl, we’ve been on two dates in as many days, and we’re going on another in three days, and I’m totally smitten with her.
Shit, I’ve been single for over seven years, and if this is what breaks the streak, maybe it will have been worth the wait. It’s still super early yet, but this girl is the shit.
Wish me luck, guys.
