Quote of the Day

Via Tam

"....when his wealth is made possible by our consumer environment and our money which is all created on a collective basis."

- Some asshat commenting on a message board

Sorry buddy, but wealth is not created on a "collective basis" unless by "wealth" you really mean "dependency" and "suffering."

Any material wealth I have I obtained in one of two ways. One, I entered into a consentual agreement with someone whereby I would provide a service they needed done, and they'd pay me for the work. That's called a JOB. Two, I was given money as a gift. In either case society or a "collective" did not pay me, nor did they do my work for me. I worked, I was paid for it. That's how people acquire wealth. It's not by any stretch of the imagination a "collective process." If you're too much of a moron to get that through your thick skull you're probably one of those people Nikki and I think shouldn't vote

I'd love for someone to leave a comment explaining how money/wealth is created on a "Collective Basis." It doesn't happen.
