World owes me nothing
World owes me at least the basics of life
The world doesn't owe me anything, and I don't owe the world anything. I was raised as you were, sawyer. I was told that we are all born with the same opportunity, but where we go in life is up to us.
The only thing I could think of that the world MIGHT owe me for being born is air. Maybe water too. But it's up to me to breathe and carry my own water. And even then, I'm not sure that "owe," is the right word.
It's GREAT to be me. --- "45% liberal/55% conservative"
Diplomacy is the art of saying 'nice doggy" until you can find a gun.
Seems convenient, since you'll never ask "the world" as a whole for anything anyway since that's pretty much impossible for someone to do but you'll ask a lot of the part of the world you're in.
Not a God damn thing...
"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
