"Happy people rarely correct their faults..."

"... they consider themselves vindicated, since fortune endorses their evil ways.

Happy

Well I never kept a dollar past sunset,
It always burned a hole in my pants.
Never made a school mama happy,
Never blew a second chance, oh no

I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love to keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.

Always took candy from strangers,
Didn't wanna get me no trade.
Never want to be like papa,
Working for the boss ev'ry night and day.

Never got a flash out of cocktails,
When I got some flesh off the bone.
Never got a lift out of Lear jets,
When I can fly way back home.

"Happy people"...also applies to dictators, and Marxists.

Carnifex...you forgot: "And heads of big banks and financial institutions and top Wall Street executives."

Happy peopel are so because things are going well and they just bask in that situation.

When things go badly, one tends, if they are at all reflective, to ask the Question, "What am I doing wrong?".

Those who aren't reflective and just whine and feel sorry for themselves and want to blame someone else are Lefties.
