Yeah, tell that to the millions of people stuck working in dead end jobs like Walmart and McDonalds. You can work and work and work in jobs like that and never get ahead at all. Guess which types of jobs are growing the much lately here in the US? That's right, McDonalds and Walmart-type jobs.
I know people with 4 year degrees delivering pizzas because there's no jobs in their field.
Why would you need to find a job? Make a good business plan or come up with an innovative idea, get some financial backing behind it and there's your success. That's what I meant with working hard, not some dead-end McDonalds job.
There's nothing, absolutely nothing stopping you from trying so. Except in socialist countries, where people have grown to know that the government will always take care of them and they can't improve their life standard much by trying to do new and innovative things, so they stay at status quo.
Look, Microsoft is doing a far more good by killing of the boot-time rootkits. I'm sure the few people who want to dual boot can just buy devices that support it.
If you are starting to make it better than other people, they tax you so much that you're soon back to where everyone else is. At least with capitalism countries you can work to make your life better. In socialism countries you cannot - you just have to accept that no matter what you do, you will always have the same standard of living than anyone else.
Welcome to capitalism, where have you been?
US hasn't been capitalist country for a while. It's turning into socialism, especially with Obama. I'm not even American and I can see that. The recent introduction of much higher taxes for rich people support that even more. Soon it will be like here in Europe, where they tax you so that no one can get richer than any other worker. It's nanny state tactic - people's feelings would get hurt when other people are better and have more than them.
