I literally thank God every day for birthing me in the US instead of some third world pit of hell. I appreciate everything I have, and if you have more than me, I say “good on you!! Congrats!”

Several years back I wrote an article about people simply not understanding how good they have it. Watching these people rioting, and marching for all their stupid causes has me once again shaking my head in disbelief. They simply have no clue.
Even the black people from the poorest of the inner cities, have more than billions of people on this planet. They get food stamps. They have running water. They can get community medical.
In the early 80’s I traveled the world as an assistant diamond buyer for a large retail Jewelry chain. Yes, for those that don’t know, I spent the first 15 years of my adult life as a jeweler. I saw the slums of India. I saw the slums of South Africa. I saw poverty on a scale that literally both scared me and sickened me.
So I’m watching yet another brainwashed idiot on TV telling me how unfair it is that there’s rich people, and their privileges. He then goes on a rant about why it’s so wrong that “they ride around in Mercedes, but I can only afford a 5 year old Kia.” He laments that they have “mansions, and he’s lucky to just have a 2 bedroom house.” He’s “angry” about the inequality.
