You are welcome to wallow in your self entitled misery. I use self entitled in the sense that you come across as a person that believes he should have been that person who had this or that background instead of being grateful for what he has now (food, shelter, and an Internet connection) and going for it. I can only hope my post will help someone who is considering taking the leap.

More whining ...

The next decade or century will be known as the age of the entrepreneur. The lack of company and corporate jobs will force people to do this. I'm not referring to entrepreneur millionaires. A person going door to door washing vehicles is an entrepreneur. The kid selling lemonade is an entrepreneur. The word too often implies getting rich quick. It used to be called 'running a small business' or 'contracting'. Every mom and pop shop, food vendor, painter, plumber, freelance consultant, house cleaner, gardener (who works on contract) is an entrepreneur. Do you recall the merchants and artisans in history class? They were entrepreneurs. Blue's News is entrepreneurial.

Labor intensive skills will slowly be replaced by robotics and AI. If you want to succeed, you will need to learn to service, develop or provide on a level that requires business acumen. Everyone can jump on this ladder. How high you start is simply a matter of motivation. Those from a higher education often have more motivation due to encouragement from mentors and peers. You can still do this on your own. Just be prepared to start at the bottom, forcing yourself to be somewhat obsessive to self motivate.

Start your own business. It doesn't need make millions in the first year. The business can be something as drastic as a new invention or as simple as selling small items or providing a niche service. Search for a need or an idea. Think about your everyday consumables and activities. Ponder what can be improved, serviced, or provided. The business idea is right in front of you. You don't need a higher education to start it nor do you need it to be successful. If you build it or sell it, they will come. Think positive. If you feel the passion, the success is sure to follow. The most important piece of advice I can provide is to surround yourself with people smarter than you. Make sure they are people that you can respect. Make good use of their talents -- be it employees, contractors, friends or simply mentors for advice. Don't pass too much judgement on what they do, just learn why they are happy doing it.

I have a friend with a Model S. They are pretty magical. And the torque on that thing is incredible. 0-60 in 4.0s

Not spending money on gas is quite appealing. Having a sports car in LA is a complete waste of money. Good luck driving over 30 MPH, including the freeway, for an extended period of time.

Fast food workers on strike is the reason why staying in school and getting an education for a good paying career is important.

I've been homeless. After earning multiple academic degrees, I now run my own successful business. Every time I go out shopping and see a homeless person, I buy him or her food. Everyone should try this. It's a great habit and fulfilling feeling. Show compassion to those who struggle. Never judge, always support. It may happen to you.

And yet you constantly encourage people to move to So Cal, which would cause property prices to skyrocket furthering and exacerbating that dichotomy.

I'm counting on those price increases for my retirement.

Why would I do that? Jay Leno is a good guy who already does a lot of charity work.

Pointing out the general dichotomy of LA's rich vs. poor. Unfortunately, there isn't too much in the middle anymore. In all honesty, I love the weather, but I'm not a fan of LA. Too much ghetto. A heavily mismanaged location.

Man, would I ever love to tour Jay's garage and drive a few of those bad boys.

After that, make an effort to cruise through all the impoverished ghettos nearby and wonder 'what the hell'.
