I Live 24-Hours a Day; Why Doesn't America Pay Me More?

I know the first response you'll make is "Well, we ALL live 24/7; so your pay wouldn't mean nothin`"; but I CAME BACK TO LIFE, and beside that "living" is a bit of work for me. A possible reason (the bulk of this rant) is that Humanity is a self-centered species; they don't care about 'the work others must do' except as it affects 'their own personal comfort.' And IF I WERE ANY THREAT TO THAT COMFORT (important to repeat: I AM NOT ANY THREAT WHATSOEVER TO ANYONE ELSE'S COMFORT BUT MY OWN!), then I would be 'dealt with' and forgotten; so threaten to take my 'deserved' vengeance out on society would not help me in the least. (And neither would 'the taking of vengeance' itself, which therefore THE TAKING OF VENGEANCE IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN ) And yet lots of 'Internet Marketers' brag about making thousands of dollars a month by simply plugging-in ... I think a percentage of ALL that money should go to me (by which means it'll find its way to you, I'm sure)

well.. seems like you have a lot of stuff going on at your end.. but like you rightly said, we are a self-centered species.. for instance, i don't care whether you exist or not.. and my guess is nobody's forcing you to continue to exist anymore than i am being forced. its only because you want to live on that you exist.. pure selfishness at that.. sad but true

The presumption is always that we earn according to how much we work. Well in the world of making money on the internet that is not necessarily true. No marketer ever cares if we live and or die trying, they simply want to earn and if we earn they are not really interested in that. My thinking is that if we live we work and if we work they earn.

THAT IS PRECISELY WHY YOU ARE NOT MAKING MORE MONEY! You want people to give you money without you having earned it. You have problems, do you believe that you are the only person with problems? You criticize society for being selfish yet you yourself only look at you and your problems without thinking about other people that could need it. You are not the only person with problems and I can even assure you that there is people with a much more screwed life that yours. If you want to make money without earning it, you can continue fantazising about the internet marketers giving you part of their money for no GOOD reason. You could alwasy find reasons why some of the money that internet marketers win should go to you, you could also always find reasons to destroy the planet earth or dress like a woman and dance on the streets. Now, making money is NOT about how hard you work. The harder you have to work the less you make. Making money is about working "smart". As in "The Wealth of Nations" by Adam Smith, it is the skill that you have that makes you get payed. That is how bankers make more money than sewer cleaning employees. If we just payed people because of the effort they did we would make the whole economy crash because then it would be the least productive people who would have all the money and the money would be then worth nothing. If I had a technology I would rather then keep it to myself and never share it because if I did I would get nothing out of it and I would actually loose money. I am very sorry if you have to work and not get payed for it. Such is life (and we actually all have to work without getting payed to some extent). Yet, society would not be able to function if we just gave money to people who want it (for whatever "reason"). You have read what I have written and you can change your mind which means that you begin to think differently even as you finish reading this sentence.

I didn't say I want people to give me money without my earning it; I'm sorry you assumed I want anything. People want to give, but they have a mind-construct (a Tower of Babel) that convinces them they have to "take something of value" in order to give. I'm all-for tearing-down that construct; but I forget why we need it and am afraid that I will lose something without the Tower of Babel.

Well we have the term called working smart. I just started with the internet business a few months ago and I'm still trying to look for the best option and the most efficient way to earn money so I can reach to a point that I can have unlimited income.

Money is a lie! The way to truly be rich starts with the universal LAW of the marketplace---Quid pro Quo. (That's a 'law' like gravity; one which "Mother Nature" enforces!) Literally, that's "this for that"; but that's really a simplification ... what it really means is that you should give as you would like to receive. I would like to receive whatever you can give (i.e. whatever you have OVER-AND-ABOVE THAT WHICH YOU NEED), so I give whatever I have OVER-AND-ABOVE THAT WHICH I NEED
