: Provision is good. Satisfaction is better.

: A job provides. It doesn't always satisfy.

: Most socialists apparently find mere provision unsatisfying. People of good character, the kind of character created through trials, understand that even mere provision isn't something they are entitled to and they thank God they have a job.

: Why isn't that the right way to think? Why must good character and those who advocate it be treated contemptuously by these would be messiahs?

: Because good character thwarts their agenda by creating people who don't need them. Same old thing!

I've said this before, and I'll say it again. There were many many mornings I went to work hating it. I hated it. I despised doing it.

TOOOOO BAAAAAAD! Quit your whining and do your duty Normand!
So I went to work.

I provided for myself.

By saving some of the wages that I made, and being willing to take a chance with part of that, I invested. The ivestments, generally speaking, turned out OK. Anyone can do that.

A job can be a blessing in disguise.

For you guys who don't like mere personal anecdotes, too bad.
