I write these not to beg money. Instead I am just showing you that you are not making me rich. Every time I see a Donate button somewhere, I always worry I am making the guy rich. With a lot of these guys, I would love to see a financial situation update so I can see exactly what he needs.
If I ever got to the point where I had lots of money, I might even take the Donate button down and work for free. I would have to think about it.
Remember “To each according to their needs, from each according to their ability”? Marx. My Mom always hated that line and acted like it was very unfair somehow. The people who need money the most are those with the greatest basic needs. You give a rich person money, and all you are doing is helping buy a new yacht or or a $10,000 bracelet for his wife or pay for another night at a $300/night hotel. People either need money or they don’t. Rich people don’t need one more damn nickel, sorry.
In case you are wondering how us Commies think, well, this is how we think.
Will 100 dollars be enough? Sounds like his financial situation isn’t great, so perhaps it is. Just asking the question.
Assuming this fellow is not a troll (I get a lot of trolls on here making posts like this) sure, of course. And I can prove it.
Right now it is the end of the month, so I have to hardly spend any money. That is because I need $300 above my small trust fund check to even pay my bills and still be at budget. Budget is $15/day. Yep that is what I live on after bills are paid.
Right now I have $255 over budget. Some of that will get spent over the next three days. So I am still $45 short of even what I need to pay basic bills next month and still be at budget and I pretty much have $0 spending for the next few days unless I wish to dip into that $255.
Not to mention some rather pressing expenses, the main one of which is fixing my air conditioning at $90. It’s 90-100 degrees here some days. Driving with no air con is murder.
You guys are not making me rich. You are just allowing me to function at a basic level, pay my bills and take care of some highly important expenses like car repairs that pretty much need to get done.
The purpose of this post is to show you exactly my situation so you can determine what, if any, my needs are. That’s the only reason.
