    " In anything that you are going to pursue, find a mentor. Why reinvent the wheel if there is somebody that already knows and has lived and breathed that. The second thing, make yourself invaluable to that mentor. Do not just take, but figure out a way to help them out and to give."

    Since I never went to college, at least I know I'm on an equal footing.

    The education you got doesn't award diplomas.

    If you don't know any better, you don't know. And if you don't know, how do you know what to ask?

    It doesn't matter how much you look with your eyes. If you can't comprehend what you see, you won't know what you're looking at.
    I think the society in the wagon is more of a "Dumb like a Fox" Society, rather than I can't look at what people have and comprehend how to better ones self or get there. Most have mastered how to not lose govt benefits and have worked hard at mastering it . They know the programs, ways around regs, and when and how to duck the payback. I was picking up a police report for a customer when I over heard a woman cuzzing what I presume to be her daughter down for applying for a job. Said it would decrease her benefits... Kid looked around and saw a way to better but mom wanted the free $.

    Every kid at the school a family friend teaches at has an iphone. This is not a iphone type school. The kids taught my friend how to go down to the Vzw store to get upgraded and on the "plan". Knowing the system inside and out...

    This drug free to get benefits is a START...

    my .02. It was cheap.

    That is true, I know one of the most book smart people on the planet UGA grad - his sorry *** lives in Albany and has done nothing with his adult life besides drink and drugs...his Grandfather left him $$$, he spent all that and now sucks off anything that will be stupid enough to give to him, most likley he just down to stealing...


    now more like that too, most in Albany - the sorry acees who couldn't or would not get off the tit...adults now with nothing - refuse to work, etc I don't get and don't waste time on em

You have been able to not only witness but also realize the benefits of working hard. What if you had grown up in the ghetto, you didn't know who your dad was, your mom was a crackhead who didn't care what you did, the people who were "making it" in your community were criminals, you had to worry about getting shot, etc? I agree that hard work is very important, but equally important is the environment in which you were raised. Most of us have been given a tremendous leg up compared to someone who was born into crime and poverty. The rags to riches stories are few and far between...they happen and people also win the powerball. I am by no means excusing or defending the multitudes of sorry asses in our country, I'm just pointing out that there are environmental factors which may make what appears to be a molehill to us, a mountain to others.


    I agree with a lot but also disagree, all these kids and adults that are out breaking the law and gang banging know its wrong they just choose that life because thats what they were raised around and what their friends did, alot of bad choices, ignorance is not a excuse, there are always a exception to the rule and I understand that im not dumb but most are life style choices
