I said it before and I will say it again – ‘Don’t Mess with Texas’- or in this case, Don’t mess with Miss Texas. Well, actually first runner-up, but still, better than I could do. Her answers to the judges threw them for a solid loop, though:
Before going on to be named first runner-up in the 2015 Miss USA Pageant, Miss Texas, Ylianna Guerra, slipped in an unabashedly pro-capitalist answer to a judge’s question. Focusing on the hot-button issue of income inequality, one judge asked Guerra for her opinion on the disproportionately high wages top executives earn compared to their employees.
Asked whether she supported “boundaries” on these earnings, the contestant was unequivocal.
“If you work hard enough,” she said, “you can attain anything. This is the land of opportunity; and CEOs, I believe they work hard enough for their money, so I believe they should be able to attain whatever it is they’re working for.”
I love this lady and I LOVE her message. Such a far cry from the ditzy, air-brained females who don’t know if math should be taught in schools. Uhm, yes. Morons. Ladies: you can do it. Pick a goal, and get there. You can attain it. This is the land of opportunity for all. Go get your slice of the dream, while it’s still hot.
