They take our skills

They take our labor

They take our knowledge

They take our pride

They take our best ideas

They take our time

They take our lives

In the end they take our jobs and these so called "makers" turn around and call us "takers"

Look, the people you are after are the people you depend on. We cook your meals, we haul your trash, we connect your calls, we drive your ambulances. We guard you while you sleep. Do not fuck with us!

Great line.

Reject the basic assumptions of civilization, especially the importance of material possessions.

What do you want? Wanna go back to the shit job, fuckin' condo world, watching sitcoms?

It's only after you lose everything that you're free to do anything.

By the end of the first month, I didn't miss TV.

kind of ironic since it's a hollywood blockbuster though

I haven't seen Killing them Softly.

I read a review about it.

I usually fall asleep in theatres.

I didn't even know it was a movie until you mentioned it.

[-] 1 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

I haven't had a tv for around five years now.

Watch the occasional movie online.

So long as the general public refuses to make worker-owner businesses a priority for consideration, private business will always have a place of rulership in America.

They don't get it. They have a 'Tiger By The Tail'.

Yeah, and here's an example of how a "maker" operates. Kind of hard to understand how a "maker" like this could "make it" differently.

Businesses make money off their employees.

[-] -2 points by freakyfriday (179) 1 year ago

Well, duh.....why would anyone have an employee that costs them money, unless they were running a charity (or a Democrat paying them with someone else's money)????

"They". And if you had your way who would "they" be?

[-] 1 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

They is any company or anyone who exploits it's workers without sharing a proper cut of profits.

The millionaire CEO demanding employees to take wage cuts because of his poor management skills and is currently giving himself a raise. Good example of the "THEY"
