Tag Archives: Awake the State

Thank a union guy!

Author Stephen King (born poor in the state of Maine; worked his butt off; got rich; has a house down here) stopped into the Awake The State Rally in Sarasota FL last week. To the delight of the crowd, he took the mic.

Some choice bits:

At 1:45   I’m a rich guy. I pay 28% in taxes and I want to know why I don’t have to pay 50%!

At 4:35  If you like a weekend, thank a union guy. If you like a 40 hour week, thank a union guy.

Proud to have you as a neighbor Mr. King. Sir.
