I was so proud of Leo. He got a good bonus. He worked hard to make his company successful and got a bonus. Working hard to make his business successful and ironically helped the economy by providing jobs for other people. Amazing how that works.
And we were so excited about the bonus. Only to find out that 53% of it went to taxes. 53%!!!!!!!!!
We didn't even get to keep half of it. We wanted to be sick. Literally sick.
If the government is so concerned about the economy, they could have let us keep more of it so we could have stimulated the economy by spending some of the bonus.
Maybe you feel that 53% is OK, and if you do that is fine. We however do not. IT IS NOT FINE. NOT ONE BIT. Something is seriously wrong with things if this is what we've become.
I am not here to provide assistance to everyone else who feels they do not need to bust their own ass to get ahead or sustain their own livelihood.
I think it's time for revolution.
