You know, hip jump is youthful, we actually developing, and we’re not succumbing to that tricknology whatever, you know, this public puts out there.”

“Before was the American dream, ‘Pull yourself by the bootstraps, and you can make yourself…you can make it in America,’ all these lies that America told us our whole life,” he continued.

“And then when we start getting in, they tried to lock us out of it. They start inventing words like you know, ‘capitalist,’ you know, things like that.
