    We are both self made men.

    You started, and run, your own business. That is much more than I ever achieved.

    With zero college, I went to work two weeks after getting out of the service, as a manual laborer in a lumber yard.
    When I retired, I managed a warehousse for a national company. My boss was 150 miles away and would drop in a few times a year. I earned all that. The hard way.
    Just as you earned what you have.

    You, sir, are A-OK in my book.

    I worked my entire life, I still do part time, still in my own business.

    I started it in 1982, worked my ass off 16+ hours a day 7 days a week.

    I invested over a half mil in it over the first 6+ years.

    I built the building myself out of concrete and steel, did all the electrical and plumbing myself.

    I built it after working 10 hours a day for a company as a toolmaker and weekends.

    Most of the products I made were for the US military, had plenty of experience doing so for other companies.

    Every piece that went out of here was right, not marginally right, but right to specs.

    I know stuff went to the first gulf war, some they were in such a hurry for they sent a Huey to pick them up.

    They were flown to Westover AFB then shipped to the ME for the start of the war!!!

    Now I pointed this out for a reason, my daughter became disabled 14 years ago with one problem, then another 8 years ago.

    She has an EBT card, I refused to let her for 10 years as a matter of pride I guess.

    After seeing all the trash that has them and O'thigger phones and plenty more, I said to hell with it!

    I paid in plenty, the garbage did zero, so I figure let her get what I put in.

    She is stricken with Epileptic seizures and theY will never go away, never know when they will hit.

    Made her get an O'thigger phone too, why not? I see what the trash does as for thanks for what they get, NOTHING!!!!

    My family is in an upper income bracket and they sent me a card too. The amount of it doesn’t even scratch the surface of the taxes we pay each year.

    I must be doing something wrong. No one ever sends me free shit, but I sure as hell am on the list when it comes to giving my money up.

    I too have worked hard for everything I have in my life and I'm proud of it. I even owned my own business for several years. I don't think I would take the money I'm just saying I don't know MM's financial situation personally, but I do know that this will help him and his family no doubt. And we all know he pays way too much in taxes so I'm not judging.

    Nothing to see here, move along, now.

    I would give you a cookie but you probably wouldn't take it. I'm not judging you either.

    Who here took the $1,200 the government handed out? I did, I didn't need it I worked and got paid and was happy to be able to. My girlfriend as well. Kept it until this weekend and I blew it on a riding mower and she blew hers on a 75-inch TV. Maltese for scale

    We definitely all appreciate the effort you have given to serve this country for all of us and especially those of us that haven't served. I just try not to judge, I'm not religious at all but Jesus did say you who are without sin cast the first stone

    It's money you paid in so why not? If you didn't take it they would find another free program to enhance.

    Yeah, we took the stimulus money. It was just a tiny part of what we paid in. And besides, the left is about to collapse the economy anyhow so money will be worthless or near enough to worthless anyhow soon enough.
