Money Makes the World Go Round

 It really upsets me, this reality, “money makes the world go round”. It’s not fair even though some will argue that those with lots of money worked for it. It seems that (at least here in the states) the rules keep the rich rich and the poor poor. “Money can’t buy happiness”, well, who ever said that did not have money. If I had money I could move where ever I wanted in the world, literally, you can’t immigrate without money, I would not have to worry about health insurance, I could just pay for what I need without having to wait for years to qualify for insurance with my pre-existing condition, I would not have to worry about finding a job in time, nothing!

 I could just do what I want and live the life I want, not some extravagant life, just a simple one. Funny, the days of finding a plot of land and settling down are a couple hundred years in the past, now if you want that you need money. Maybe money can’t buy happiness itself but it can but the tools to make it if you ask me.

I don’t want some expensive car, a boat, or a private jet, I just want a place to live, somewhere quiet with my girlfriend, why is that so much to ask for? I can’t even afford a new car (a new USED car that is) yet somewhere in California someone is going to win the Mega Millions (lottery) and blow 44 million dollars on drugs, strippers, boats, and monster trucks and that makes me insane to think about because I could literally start a life as a productive member of society for $10,000, but 44 MILLION? I can’t imagine how you could ever use that in one  life.

The average male salary is
$43,460 and the average amount of years worked is 49. That is
$2,129,540 earned in a lifetime.”

That means when someone cashes in that ticket they will win almost 22 times the amount the average person earns in a life time all at once (well before taxes that is)… And it will all be wasted on ffrivolous materials (most likely).
 “The National Endowment for Financial Education cites research estimating
that 70 percent of people who suddenly receive a large sum of money
will lose it within a few years.”
Because they blow it and go into debt ironically.
$44,000,000 is roughly:
5,866 months of Tysabri – that’s 488 years… Could you imagine? 
1,571 viles of Acthar
13,345 months of Copaxone – that’s 1,112 years…
Getting the picture? So many people struggle to pay for medication they NEED and this money is being given away like it’s nothing. All this money is raised on the chance to fulfil the greed of just one state, imagine if we could raise that kind of money to help people in need? Ugh… Anyways… Do I have a point? No… I just… I am just complaining over how unfair life can be, but, that is life.

    When is life EVER fair? A true test of character is to recognize it and move on despite the challenges.

    Wouldn't it be wonderful if the lottery was used on medicines for the needy, or something useful, instead of making someone overly rich, and all that money going to waste? But if it was used on something useful, then who would pay for the lottery tickets? Nobody… It's sad the way the world is today. Everyone is out for themselves.
