Self Made Man

Frederick Douglas wrote this:

“Self-made men […] are the men who owe little or nothing to birth, relationship, friendly surroundings; to wealth inherited or to early approved means of education; who are what they are, without the aid of any of the favoring conditions by which other men usually rise in the world and achieve great results.”

I am currently holed up in the furthest recesses of my own house while a certain “self-made man” brays on about those “big-government liberals” who are ruining the country for him.  Please go home with your delusional notions of how you are the only guy who actually works for a living.  Pull up your socks, man.  Get on your bike.   Leave.  I’m begging you.
