Back in 2009 Massachusetts state senator Robert A. Hall published a letter saying he was tired, and then he went on ranting against Muslims and other people. For a while, people spread the rumor that Bill Cosby wrote that letter, but that wasn’t the case.
Well, I’m tired too, but about way different things.
I’m tired of banks taking money from poor people to pay rich people. I’m tired of people overdrawing their account by two dollars to be charged thirty. I’m tired of banks bouncing checks multiple times in order to charge a fee each and every time. I’m tired of banks not giving loans to people that need them and paying interest to people that don’t need it.
Just because I’m for the poor, does not mean I’m against the rich. I’m against injustice. Rich people should keep their money, but poor people shouldn’t be forced into debt. I’m tired of rich people complaining about the economy while poor people can’t afford to live regardless of how good or bad the economy gets.
I’m tired of companies that provide telephone, cable or internet services screwing people over with BS contracts. I’m tired of every new bill having a new charge. I’m tired of big companies harassing people that used their credit cards to buy groceries for their families and now they can’t afford to make the minimum payment, then they charge them a late fee and higher interest rates and that amount becomes greater than the amount that they owed to begin.
I’m tired of high schools teaching kids how to put a condom on a cucumber but not showing them how to open a bank account, how to use an ATM card, or how to take care of their credit. I’m tired of teachers complaining that they don’t get paid enough, so they use that as an excuse to give a sub par job performance.
I’m tired of day cares in high schools. It used to be that if you had a baby and you were in school, then you would take your ass home and take care of your kid. No one told you to go get pregnant so that you have something to play with. A kid is not a toy, and yes, it’s supposed to change your life. That’s your responsibility. People don’t deserve for your day care. Stay home with your kid and stop taking up space and resources from kids that actually want to learn and do something with their lives. If you want to be successful too, then you’ll have to work twice as hard because there are two of you. Don’t blame the world or the government; blame your horniness and your parents not teaching you better. On the other hand, I’m also tired of teenage girls using abortions as a form of contraceptive.
I’m tired of minorities on Television always being depicted in messed up situations or in horrible lives. Sort of like when the Germans used to depict the Jews in a bad light as part of their propaganda, it’s a bit comparable of what’s going on in American television today.
I’m tired of the local news reporting someone assaulted, robbed or murdered someone and then saying the suspect is a “Latino with a mustache” or a “Black man with short hair”. That could be anybody. No wonder people are afraid.
I’m tired of American soldiers still getting killed everyday overseas, yet all we see is the weather girl skirt getting shorter and Dallas Raines getting tanner.
I’m tired of people settling and thinking their lives are as good as they get. I’m tired of people asking for handouts. I’m tired of people blaming the system for being unemployed. I’m tired of people not starting their own business and blaming the government. If you have a quality product or service, someone will buy it. Stop waking up at noon complaining that your bank account is overdrawn and then smoking weed the rest of the day so that you can cope.
I’m tired of envious people that hate other people who work hard because it makes them look bad. I’m tired of people who haven’t read two pages of a book in the last ten years and then complain that their lives suck. You don’t need a school or college to be educated. There are books everywhere! You don’t need a teacher; all you need is motivation, self-discipline and a willingness to learn.
I’m tired of writing this.
