My boyfriend's father also worked hard and made sacrifices. He screwed up for his first few years of college and partied too much. Then he got his act together, went back to school, and became an accountant. He's been the CFO of several companies, helped found several companies, and will soon be the CEO of a to-be-founded company. He works very long hours; is sometimes threatened by corrupt businessmen who want him to sign off on tampered documents; and overall is an extremely hard worker who made a very good life for him and his family.
How dare people call Gardner or my boyfriend's father "greedy" or "selfish." How dare Obama have the audacity to raise their taxes when they and the rest of the 1% of the country pay 50% of the taxes.
Whatever happened to working hard and making sacrifices to get what you want? Now people just expect the government to hand them everything, and then they still complain about the "greedy rich people."
