“… money is probably the most highly overrated thing in the world from a standpoint of being happy with your life.”
This is probably one of the most privileged statements I have ever heard in my entire goddamn life. How fucking clueless can you be to say something as ignorant as “money is overrated.”
I am trembling with anger from this. Go fuck yourself in the worse possible way you bullshit, irrelevant, incoherent, scum-sucking, murdering, Bush wannabe!
Really? THAT’s what you took from that? Sounds to me like “money isn’t everything.” Believe it or not you can be happy without money. That’s an often overlooked fact. I may not like Rick Perry either, but get your head out of your ass once in a while.
Really? Have you ever tried?
Joe’s right—this is the most privileged statement that can be stated. Anyone who says you don’t need money to be happy usually has lots of it.
As much as it’d be nice for love and rainbows to run the world, that’s not the case. If you can’t buy toilet paper, or food, or a warm coat, or a cold beverage, you’re probably not very happy. If you can’t afford to have a broken tooth fixed, if you don’t have clean water to bathe in and drink, if you haven’t seen your family in years because they shipped you off to a “better” country, you’re probably not very happy.
Being happy requires the basic human necessities, which you cannot acquire without money. It is what it is.
Now do yourself a favor and stop listening to Governor Good Hair. It will make your life infinitely better.
