Don't forget the couples that both work, not for the money, but just because they want to.

Slavery is illegal today and both work for the money. Money is the grease which makes the wheels turn.

I'll give you just one example:

A friend of mine has enough money to live out his life in luxury. He made it all by himself after working at a theater to put himself through grad school. He owns three homes locally just for entertainment which he rarely has time for, a home in Colorado and homes both on Pacific and Caribbean islands just for vacations which he again rarely has time for. He recently just bought a beachfront home for his parents so that they can live out their lives in comfort and luxury. He has enough money already set up in a trust fund for his 2 yo son so that he will never have to work a day in his life. He continues to work and spend much of that money on charity.

His wife spends her time running around to different auditions for small time modeling jobs. Although still an attractive woman, she is past her prime and after two decades of chasing that modeling dream, it is obvious that she will never strike it big. She spends far more money on her audition trips and the nanny than she could make.

That is clearly two people that don't need to work but continue to do so because they are driven by passion. I have urged both of them to retire so they can enjoy life while they are still young.

They don't "feel the need" to have both parents work - we live in a country where the government gives all the advantages to the top 1% of the nations and says "fuck you" to the rest of the nation, making it a requirement of existence for most families to have two income earners.

It's not quite rocket science.
Well, just think if there was a way to give every single working person a raise of at least 30% instantly. I wonder if that would free up some of there time. If only we could pinpoint one single parasitic organization that was siphoning off a large % of the wealth from every single working citizen and put an end to the bleeding.

It seems to me that they enjoy what they are doing, working!

Oh yes, I forgot to say that I'm against women having the right to vote.
Just think how great it would be if the Nineteenth Amendment was never enacted, Carter as well as Clinton would never have been elected President, Presidents would be elected on their qualifications, and platforms, not their looks, or how sensitive or empathic they are, or the ability to play the trombone, on late night TV shows.

The majority of Americans drive six year old Fords and vacation in their back yards.

Hey, that's where I got my gas grill. I love Home Depot, just ordered new wooden venetian blinds and new wall to wall carpet from them. Will use the money I save on taxes, thank you President Trump!
