I fail to see how we got from me being able to take care of myself to being selfish? Do you have any idea how much money and clothing i have donated to people? Do you ahve any idea how many people we have let live in our home when they had no home? Did you know that I have fixed cars for hundreds of people for free and bought parts at my expense when they couldn't afford it? I am far from selfish. I AM unsypathetic to those who took advantage of the booming economy in a greedy way and used to purchase things they couldn't afford.
Oh, and whoever said they would take my jobs, I doubt you have the talents required to take all of them. Every person has unique talents and abilities. Honing these skills is what makes us valuable in good times and in bad.
