EXACTLY!!! And this is why it enrages us hard workers to no end. Life is NOT easy and some days my life is downright hellish but I keep going and I am happy most of the time (especially when fishing). The money comes hard and monotonously and when somebody tries to steal my stuff that I bought with said money, I pretty much LOSE MY MIND. I have been ripped off numerous times at my home, in my car (not while fishing though) and lost some of my favorite things (like a guitar) that keep me trudging through the shit storm times of my life (As Mr. Lahey would put it). I feel sympathy for drug addicts to some extent but most of the ones I have seen and known are usually spoiled kids, or dumbass kids, who refuse to cross the bridge from childhood to adulthood (I don't believe in adolescence because you don't know shit until you pay ALL you bills yourself with money you earned on your own). They were not poor, they were not even dumb, just slackers and it is those slackers with idle hands that get heavily into drugs and become leeches to all of us. Sure addiction is an illness but when will they classify laziness as an illness and unemployment as an illness et cetera. I chuckle when I am at a party and I hear someone with dreadlocks bitching about how there are no good jobs in Bellingham as if they should have a right to work in someone's business while stinking and being high and pretty much being totally unattractive (unemployable). I think there is something wrong with part of my generation. No drive, no interest in work, AND they think they have a right to do nothing except feed their pleasure centers. To the man who got clean, that is wonderful. If only every idiot who smoked meth or heroine could take that same leap and give up unwarranted pleasure, I am sure it is unbelievable hard and that is exactly why I never tried any of that shit.
