    Why, as a white male voter, am I constantly asked to change my political or societal beliefs, but no one ask other groups to give an inch? Why am I being asked to abandon the greatest nation God has ever created so some dipshit Democrats can go on the floor of the House of Representatives and say the most vile things about our country? Unbelievable.

    Yes, you probably don't want anyone to tell you that you are fat, either. You just want to feel good about yourself. We get that.

    I don’t think I have to change at all considering Victory in World War Two.Six uncles got their ass shot off by Nazis and Japs. Have two brothers, blood brothers, and we all served in the military because it was the right thing to do. Even after our uncles and cousins came back from Korea and Vietnam. You did it. Was you scared? Goddamn right you was. But you did it anyway. All I ask of my President and my country is to bring those jobs back. The jobs we dreamed over with camp fires and guns in the Middle East East. We all talked about going home. Getting a job working st the steelmill, or assembly line. But hard work to build a home. Oh,fuck-itI forgot my white privileged status. Everything was given to me.

    White males founded this country and set the framework to make it the greatest country in the world. White males stopped the practice of slavery. I look around the globe and see more poverty, slavery, torture, human trafficking, zero tolerance for women and gays rights....mostly in countries run by non-white men. Comparatively speaking, White males have a lot to feel good about themselves.

    Or they were drafted... but never mind. Why do you get a pass because of what other people did that was totally unrelated to the problems we have.

    Okay, here's the problem with that. Those jobs are gone, not because some other country stole them, but because they found a machine that can do those jobs better, faster and with higher quality.

    When I was growing up, we had an American Made TV set. A Zenith, I think. Tubes burned out on it on a regular basis, and I had to run down to the corner store and test them on a tube tester. The TV repair guy came over on a regular basis.

    NOW- In 1990, I bought a Toshiba TV. It didn't burn out until about 2011. I just bought a new one, probably should have chucked out the extra money for a wide screen but I didn't. That one still runs today, but I finally got rid of it this year, not because it stopped working, but because so many shows are in HD, wide screen format you really can't watch them on a regular tv anymore.

    But we all look romantically on the "Good old days" of three channels on a TV that didn't work half the time like this was something great.

    You see, this is where you are a little confused. The reason why your forbears had those things is because when they got back from WWII, they had a union that made sure they had a good job, and they had a government that had their backs instead of the backs of rich folks. Yes, being white also helped... being white is still the e-ticket in America.

    It also helped that at least initially, after the war, everyone else's economies were in ruins and it would take them decades to catch up.

    The ironic thing is that it isn't minorities that are "screwing" you. They have it worse than you do. The people who screwed you were other white males with more money and power.

    Um, yeah, if you ignore the slavery and the genocide of Native Americans, um, yeah.

    So? We were the last country to get rid of the practice... or almost the last.

    If you are having to look down on other people to feel better about yourself, you have serious self-esteem problems.

    At least the Ironically named Bush-92 (who doesn't realize the role his AVI played in his plight) understands that something has been lost for him. He just doesn't understand who took it from him.

    My boxing coach was a black man.Fought pro but the mob made him take falls. The guy that put my mouthpiece into my face and mopped my head with a towel? The one thing, above all other things, what this man taught me was “You only get out of it, what you put into it.” Hard work will get you by. That’s a definite. No room for pussies in the real world. Just saying.
