Just when I think I can stop running

I have another sprint ahead of me.  So since I can't find the time to write an essay, I'll link to an essay that should have been linked when it was first posted; Mind Numbed Robot - Defining "American".

It is un-American to take from your neighbor so that you may have what he doesn’t.
It is also un-American to take from someone who works so that you don’t have to. Right now there are working class people who toil away at their jobs under threat of losing their livelihood if they show up late, fail a drug test, are insubordinate to their employer or any number of prerequisites for employment while at the same time, the people who benefit from those stolen monies are not required to adhere to any such standards. – That is un-American to its core. It is also thievery.

Read it all.
