    My suggestion is to work everyday, accumulate some savings, do not live beyond your means and treat others with respect. Do not expect the government to solve your personal problems and don't be jealous of others.

    I'd add, never use tobacco, booze and/or gamble.

    It's tough to be poor. It's really tough to be poor & stupid.



    Growing up we never used paper towels. They were for rich people. Take a towel or rag & rinse it out... gee is that so hard?

    Those $15.00 walmart shoes are just 4 bucks at Goodwill, and can be had for a dollar at yard sales.


    For 5 bucks you can buy a loaf of bread & a jar of peanut butter. Poor folks can't afford to pay somebody else to cook for them.

    And some of the rich people near where I live, are crying that they will lose a tax exemption, under the new tax cut legislation.

    Maybe they would have to have two Christmas trees in their mansion, instead of three?

    I sense some satire perhaps, but your post is actually spot-on.

    Simple, but sounds just right. I like the comment on not being jealous of others because that leads to being in debt!

    More sound advice.
