The United States of Fuck You

Jim Bennett: I’ve been up two and a half million dollars.

Frank: What you got on you?

Jim Bennett: Nothing.

Frank: What you put away?

Jim Bennett: Nothing.

Frank: You get up two and a half million dollars, any asshole in the world knows what to do: you get a house with a 25 year roof, an indestructible Jap-economy shitbox, you put the rest into the system at three to five percent to pay your taxes and that’s your base, get me? That’s your fortress of fucking solitude. That puts you, for the rest of your life, at a level of fuck you. Somebody wants you to do something, fuck you. Boss pisses you off, fuck you! Own your house. Have a couple bucks in the bank. Don’t drink. That’s all I have to say to anybody on any social level. Did your grandfather take risks?

Jim Bennett: Yes.

Frank: I guarantee he did it from a position of fuck you. A wise man’s life is based around fuck you. The United States of America is based on fuck you. You’re a king? You have an army? Greatest navy in the history of the world? Fuck you! Blow me. We’ll fuck it up ourselves.

    Moving this comment from another thread:

    “John Venlet

    While there’s no doubt a $2.5 million windfall can speedily enable one to say FU to the world at large, if they are able to curb there baser instinct to engage in lavishness upon receipt of said windfall, hard work and disciplined saving are a more dependable method to achieve FU status due to the relative rarity of $2.5 million windfalls. At 57 I figure I’m about 18 months away, baring a windfall.”

    Only Goodman could pull that off.

    18 months away? You will always be 18 months away.

    I was close to that once but the US Government took 50% right off the top. Then I got married.
