"Opportunity does not come knocking. It is usually running down the street, you have to chase and tackle it." - Sheriff David Clarke, Milwaukee County.

Summer and on weekends. You don't think that isn't hard work for not even minimum wage?
When I turned 16, I got my first real job waiting tables. Still not minimum wage but made good tips. Ever balanced four plates of food in one arm so darn hot it left blisters on your arm while carrying a tray with 4-5 other plates at the same time? On your feet all day long running here and there. Don't you dare tell me those folks are not hard workers. Jobs like that paid for my education. And I am a better person for experiencing it.
Maybe you were handed everything on a silver platter or you got your education paid for by your parents or special grants. I didn't. I earned mine.
Fact-checking Romney's "47 percent" comment - CBS News
The idea that all people who don't have a net income tax burden "are dependent upon government," "believe they are victims," "believe the government has a responsibility to care for them," etc. is phenomenally stupid."There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it -- that that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what. ... These are people who pay no income tax. ... [M]y job is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."
