Should Go Fund Me be Go F Thy Self?

There is a video on Facebook that is rather NSFW (That means Not Safe For Work for you newbies) which covers a rather interesting topic, the abuse of Go Fund Me. There is a time and place for everything.

The holidays are about family, love, compassion towards others, not who can buy or get the most expensive thing! 

Look, it is great to want something and to have goals, it is another to expect things to just be handed to you on a silver, gold or even platinum platter. This is why the world is how it is. People are more about gimmie gimmie than hard work. How do you think the rich got what they have?

The point is this, if you want something in life, go out and earn it. Break a sweat, learn a trade, make something out of the time you have left on this planet. Don’t waste it waiting for a handout.
