On Wage Slavery
It hit me the other day that the best, the absolute most perfect image of the *wage slave* is that dude/chick you see during rush hour scratching lottery tickets on their steering wheel!
Funny, a little bit dangerous,....
....and kind of sad.
Not for anything, but some of my best friends are *wage slaves*.
Heck, Mrs. C-Nut is one and she'll stay that way until I ever decipher the vagaries of stock market gyrations, prostitute my ravishing bod for its full marketable value, or develop some other income stream.
Y'all realize that lottery tickets and the like are a voluntary, regressive tax, right?
In this day and age, there really shouldn't be any shock that a pol who co-opted *hope* was just elected President.
Just for kicks, ask the cashier at a convenience store, bodega, gas station, or packy if customers, "spend a lot on scratch tickets".
