Ep 91: Entitlement Nation – Give Me My Free Sh*t

Well, if there has been one main thing burning my ass over the last decade, it would be how many people today think they are entitled to a life of joy, happiness, and abundance. Yes, you have access to these as a free person in this country, but it is not a right. It is a privilege, and you need to earn it. A life of freedom is not free! Thinking you can sit on your ass and just get free shit is not only a bad idea, I think it shows the lack of a moral compass. In the end, where do people think all the free goodies come from? The free shit fairy? In this episode, I will use this crazy thing again... basic math to prove my points. Yep, this may be a bit of a "Gary Rant" but it must be done, or I may have to go running in the woods naked screaming like a banshee! Ok, I may do that from time to time for fun, but not because my head is about to explode, due to drowning in a world of stupidity! Topics Discussed: * How if you are making minimum wage you are rich and a family can make six figures a year * A story of how prolonged unemployment makes you lazy * Why you are not entitled to anything so stop acting like you are * Why free shit is not free * A college story of not being poor and being on food stamps * Why using unemployment benefits as a way to make more money and not work is not a good idea * Why working hard and doing the right thing is a better way to live your life * How you are paying for all that stuff you think is free * Why that thing called critical thinking will make you realize life is about goals and working towards those goals instead of taking the easy road * How and why inflation is going to be passed on to the consumer Episode Resources: * The Simple Life Website: *Make sure to signup and be a member of The Simple Life Insider's Circle at:
