To address their buddy 500 rounds vet actually did new sports teams, the 2 police call response to the latest drunken domesticate dispute. But hey, I guess that's being ‘tough'. speaking of the value of education and class to a blue collar worker is totally analogous to a discussing civilization to a Hun. It is not going to work. To put it quite succinctly, blue collar people are just that….inferior and barbaric consciousness. You cannot change them and opinion, I would not want to change them. Some people are just content to be just……..well, slaves. We intellectual and educated classes need slaves to do the dirty work. Thank God it is neither I nor you. your explanation of the topic is beyond most readers logic and reasoning. I know your position quite well because I went from Blue collar to White collar. I have also serve the military I consider myself well knowledgeable. I declare the winner because I have live what he is stating and I am working toward the superior route that is being defended. I have friends and family that still think inside the Blue collar bubble. their ideal or concept of tough is void because I am college graduate veteran, and former blue collar worker I never seen breaking back as a validation for being tough. I consider service to this country tough, but once again the Military, Police officer, Firefighter are position society that are not consider white collar or blue collar. They are the phenomenons within our society however they are above your average blue collar position. Finally, I agree with we want to sugar coat things because we do not want to hurt people feelings. The fact of the matter is that most of the Blue Collar people raise their children to become White collar and White collar families raise their kids to stay White collar. When a White collar child decide to go the Blue collar route, not every time but most of time his is seen as not aspiring for greatness or other words a failure. I do not agree with this logic because I understand the intellectual concept. Everyone does not fit into for White collar role within our society. Yet, this is the truth. And we all know that sometimes the truth hurts. If this was not case, why do White collar talk about their parents pushing them to get education. The bottom line is simple. We as a society not like people like this world. However we as a society need people like this world. People like are your Doctor, Lawyers, Police Officer, Fireman, Military, CEO's, Business Owners Once last example, I offer this to urge the Blue Collar person to seek a higher level of reasoning. I am sure all of are familiar with the old Gangsta Movies. You know, Scare farce, Godfather, Good-fellas, Casino etc. those movies they Gangsta are present as the hero for the blue collar The unite the Blue Collar guys to form Union and get better working condition pay and benefits for blue collar workers. I am respect this presentation and I am not against. However, most people fail to the one true motivator for all the Gangsta the movie. all the Gangsta movie the highest achievement for them is become White Collar or moving their money into legitimate business. If this was not case, why do the original gangsta dress business suits to try to blend with white collar men? Once again this example prove point. The Blue collar needs to grow up and educate himself about the world not just his community. Once again, did not survive with Blue Collar logic or reasoning. If that was the case, we would all still be walking around bare foot the desert of Africa. apology for Grammar and punctuation errors. I wrote this on Phone. Oh, I have a Bachelor degree Philosophy. Yes, I am a Philosopher. I understand how society is made and how it function.. is correct. Police officers, firemen, and most enlisted military are not white collar. Military officers are a tougher call as its going to depend on what they're doing.
