You get up to 2 and a half million dollars, any asshole in the world knows what to do with it. You get a house with a 25 year roof, an indestructible Jap-economy shit box, you put the rest into the system at 3-5% to pay your taxes and that’s your base, get me? That’s your fortress of f**kin’ solitude. That puts you for the rest of your life at a level of f**k you! Somebody wants you to do something, f**k you! Boss pisses you off, f**k you! Own your house, have a couple bucks in the bank. Don’t drink. That’s all I have to say to anybody in this social level. Did your grandfather take risks?
I guarantee he did it from a position of f*k you! A wise man’s life is based around f** you! The United States of America is based on f**k you. You’re a king, you have an army, greatest navy in the history of the world, f**k you! Blow me! We’ll f**k it up ourselves… which, we have done. A beautiful f**k you position lasts forever.
