Let me also say this, if we can ban smoking in public places, then we can also ban parking lots outside of bars, and the removal of all alcohol sales opportunities at public events. Both of which only promotes drinking and driving. If we are interested in public safety why be half assed about it. Right?
In theory if it protects the public then government has the uncomfortable job of serving and protecting regardless of political party policy.
A theoretician is someone who bathes in theory’s of the what if’s—Instead of the what is….or the true facts of what is. Take the Ebola out break in Africa. The theoretician says we can not close off all travel to and from the affected countries, because health-care workers couldn’t then get into these places, and the epidemic would certainly spread. This is an exercise of theory, the what if’s, paralyzing any can do wisdom or any attempts into taking action while using common sense.
The truth….we can close off travel to and from, as well as doing the job of protecting people and countries that don’t have Ebola as of yet, while continuing to limit it greatly. And we can just as easily provide special air rescue travel of specialized specialists to aide the affected people in those same countries.
It seems we have no problems in quarantining our first case of Ebola in America for the sake of public safety. But the irony is…to the unrealistic theoretician, placing a quarantine on travel is a recipe for some perceived disaster, or a manifestation of racism, or even building a larger wall of unfairness in the world. So we shouldn’t do it, nor is there any good reason to….right?
We shouldn’t act as though we can do nothing in the face of our fears except raise the invitation flag to our yet unrealized fears in becoming those same new realties within our lives.
It seems we as a nation have excepted and popularized the idea to ban smoking in public places, and within enclosed places as a public safety issue, because it kills. What? And with our elected theoreticians policies on Ebola we don’t really see the irony? We can for all intent and purposes “quarantine” people from publicly smoking because it does the same thing Ebola would, though be it at a slower rate of time it takes for death to accrue. And with the Ebola out break, our elected officials act as if it’s cruel and unusual punishment to quarantine travel to and from…Yep! It all makes sense to me.
What says you?
All the best to everyone.
the dangers od butter knives!
ATTLEBORO, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) – It seem that butter knives are just to dangerous in the hands of school age children who don’t know better. But then recently in the light of political correctness, other stories have boiled to the surface of our modern asylum. Stories of the boy who got in trouble for throwing imaginary hand-grenades, killing imaginary villains of the world; because he thought of himself while playing an imaginary game of the mind, as imaginary super hero saving the world. Are we now killing the inspiration of any future super hero, who may also see the need and have the willingness to save us from ourselves?
Boy, 7, suspended from school for throwing imaginary hand grenade http://blog.sfgate.com/sfmoms/2013/02/06/boy-7-suspended-from-school-for-throwing-imaginary-hand-grenade/
Have we forgotten that schools back in the olden days taught to imagine, to dream, innovate, invent, while providing inspiration, and encourage students who would guide us all into the future? All sorts of modern products and devices were the result of such an education. Schools should then be dreamland’s of sorts, visionary zones?
Instead we have transformed them to become prisons of insanity, devoid of freely promoting common sense, critical thought, and to dream big or go home. The creed of winners! Isn’t that the way to preparation for a changing future?
We should teach to impress, to create an excitement of learning in students, over the false education that these schools of modern age now teach. Today we paralyze critical thinking through the magnification of present dangers, like those butter knives, and imaginary hand-grenades. We inspire as well teach kids to trust teachers and administrators or other government employees, over even their own parents, by confiscating lunches; declaring them not healthy, uneatable, as if loving parents don’t really care? Lessens that certainly can imprint all sorts of fear in the minds of our youth today.
ATTLEBORO, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) – From a toy gun to a butter knife, a new controversy has arisen over an item a student brought to a local school Wednesday.
Morgan LaPlaume, a Wamsutta Middle School student, was simply trying to cut her fruit for lunch because she has braces and can’t take bites out of whole fruit, says the LaPlaume family.
During lunch, the vice principal happened to be walking by when he reportedly saw Morgan with the butter knife, took her to his office, and issued her a suspension.
In the land that gave birth of unlimited imagination, the creed of being “all that you can be”, as well as inspirational entertainments delivering new dreams, imaginations, through the stories of “Super Man” and others,( where good always triumphs over evil). Why do our teachers seem to be behind the learning curve? It seems that only in the specialized education systems of teaching the handicap; is where teachers are still teaching the lessons of self-reliance, the can-do-attitude, supporting efforts through inspiration of overcoming obstacles?
Today we create insurmountable walls out of false standards and the fear of bad lunches, butter knives, and the free will to imagine. We have allowed the evil change to take place, of what we once was thought our teachers were, ” the Supper men and women” of education. But now, allowing them to be transformed into the “JOKERS” of the day!
It seem to me that when the credit card company’s informs those people who certainly have reached their limits of credit, that person should know something about themself’s and what action to then take going forward. But then some brain-dead people, or some adolescent still living at home may see this position differently. After all Government does! So why not see things the same way they do?
Obama said the other day. “The debt limit was and is being used as an economic weapon by certain political party’s.” ( paraphrased )
Did he suggests that the evil banks/congress was behind this kind of limiting? Did they not understand his well-intentioned spending? Every time I get the rejection from my credit card reaching its limits, that’s the first thing that pops into my mind. My things I need, everything I buy is well-intentioned spending, my important personal needs. Don’t they know how uncomfortable life is without TP?
The government gives away things like food stamps, but when it comes to free TP stamps, they must assume that everyone still gets news papers delivered to their homes. Why not TP stamps for everyone, just to make the world in our corner a bit more presentable, a lot less likely to smell like ass. ( If you have ever taken public transit, you know!) Making humanity comfortable, and life bearable, makes a more happy-go-lucky and willing taxpayer, and a whole lot less likely that those who are on the government dole will riot over not getting their fair share. That must certainly be the first job of government, in maintaining power?
Arguments can be made that government passes out too much free stuff. Some of late have even complained that we have become a food-stamp nation. No one is even complaining about the future limiting of people’s ability to have access to TP, net alone using it on a regular basis. Giving it away for free wouldn’t cause a shortage of it, but it would cause a small economic boom for more jobs in the paper products industry. A win, win solution indeed.
There are some in government who would say. ” It isn’t governments job to flush good money down the toilet after bad.” Is that saying something in a back-handed way about food stamps, or spending money on credit?
Doing away with credit limits for government social justice, is justified. After giving the ability for people to feed their own pie-holes with help from the government, and yet purposefully forgetting to include the opinion, give the people the means to take care of their own bun-holes, would be cruel indeed! On the same plane as torture at the very least.
It is governments job to protect the value of money. So printing new money to then buy the nations debt, explains away the need of having any debt limits at all. The bills always get paid with new money printed. Presto! Problem solved, just like going to work for a paycheck/new money, without having to do so. So it is with an overly simplistic way to explain high finance to what has become all to common place in the minds of the average citizen who don’t see any problems with these kinds of governmental solutions. Of course, what seem to be plain paper being used by most people as TP today. Will end up being not quite as soft feeling printed paper, with pictures of dead presidents and numbers on it tomorrow.
What was that all to famous quote by “Dirty Hairy” in the movies? ” You have to know your limitations!”
We must all recognize that things of great value are things in limited supply or limited in availability like some great work of art. A dead artist can’t make another great work, so there is what seems great value to the work that was done. So when the president asked for the ability to remove all debt limits on the nation’s ability to print, and spend. What he was asking for was to raise the value of TP that is still being made with that softer feel to it these days. While telling you that the value of the nation will certainly be reduced by its borrowing. Giving our kids the bills to pay later on down that so-called political road. Is that the work of some great political artist, and will his work represent great value tomorrow?
When you think about it…….. Global warming is slowly killing the planet by cutting down trees. So limiting our printing of money and borrowing money is also controlling the rate of growth of global warming. Wouldn’t it? Prehaps political hot air is the main source of global warming; causing the financial destruction of our nations buying power, with polices of throwing ourself’s over the fiscal cliff while trying to jump higher and higher mountains of unlimited debt without looking to see how deep the hole is first. Unlimited, leads to unlimited and unrecoverable failures, by not recognizing the danger in the first place beyond those limits set already.
“Toilet bowl politics looks for unlimited ability to maintain power by compleat political idiots with the policies of “limitless possibility’s” presented as political geniuses. But true genius recognises there are limits, insane idiots don’t!” mindwarpfx
” Nothing for the most part is accomplished by doing the totally unnecessary twice as fast! ” unknown.
Purely political celebrity adultery, seem to be the focus as well the common denominator of this election season. Those who would vote based on the celebrity status of any politician. Rather than their performances, substances of policy’s, and or their affect on the country’s economy, and the people’s future in general. These people should looking at these things that lead someone in deciding or making a good decision at the least. Picking a politician on political celebrity is just a simplistic way of deciding, which one to committing political adultery with, as a way in deciding who to vote for. Do we need a political celebrity? One who is loved, or one who is committed in doing the job? Is the popular choice then, hidden among the schemer’s, scoundrels, and suckers, clothed in pure political celebrity?
People who have totally deceived themself’s to such an extent, as to accept any policy’s offered to advantage themself’s over others. Rather than having to make a determination as to what is best for our country as a whole, now and in the future. Who would then criticize these policy’s or the political party’s presenting them as lacking. No matter if it was the Democrats or Republicans offering them up. As all people in this society, we have a responsibility to hold our politicians to their promises that they make. Should they over promise and under deliver? Why would they be justified, or qualified to hold the offices that they have been elected to with such presentations? Berne Madoff was arrested for running a Ponzi scam. He promised to his first investors outrageous returns. He then paid these returns to some investors, by ripping off newer investors. This created buzz with all his investors. New investors, as all investors in the end were ripped off by Mr. Madoff. The public out cry was, this man deserved to go to prison or worse. Yet when a politician does little more than the same thing, they are then considered for reelection.
President Obama doesn’t even make a good attempt to hide the facts of his outrageous lies, policy’s, and the effects that they are having or going to have into the future. Example: The Bush tax cuts. ( a reference to president Bush.) This is just a look back some 10 years or so at a cut in tax rates in order to get the economy going. Enacted then by president Bush. A reduction of current tax rates, only accomplishes setting some new tax rate. To the democrats and president Obama, who don’t really want to recognize this simple fact. Who only refer to this with regret, of having to deal with some reductions in taxing revenues to spend. By some imaginary loss of tax revenue, being why they refer to this as a tax cut, instead of a resetting of tax rate. They don’t even recognize the effect it has had on the economy good or bad? So then choose to lie about any positive effects. Obama has been consistently complaining that the economical down was, because of these tax cuts.
What makes his argument dishonest, filled with distortions, lies, political slight of hand within the games being played out, as political theater. In fact, his policy’s had to embrace a come to Jesus moment. Extending them now twice in three and one half years of his presidency. If these quotes ” Tax cuts! ” are believed by these wizards of smart to be damaging to the economy and the governments abilities to spend. As they have openly claimed. Then why extend them at all? Is that not an admission
of failure of your own ” Tax and spend policy’s ” Mr. Obama? You can’t be on both sides of any problem and clam that one side is wrong, while claiming yourself as being the guiding light to the right side, the right policy’s to enact. While declaring to all who will lessen to be controlling spending, and growth of government.
” Obama care ” ( as the health care reform ) is more accurately described as ” Obama Tax! ” Yet President Obama presented it as a mandate, penalty, but not a tax! Yet the supreme court declared it to be unconstitutional unless we call it and enact it as a new tax. So it has become Obama Tax, the largest tax increase in the world! Yet Obama continues to lie, distort, deceive, and misrepresent himself and his policy’s. In an effort to divide a nation, for his benefits of reelection.
” I have never understood why it is ” GREED “to want to keep the money that you have earned but not greed to want to take somebody else’s money. ” Sowell
Democrats who will not except that their policy’s are doomed to failure. Only because they have all been tried by other shortsighted abusive governments of the past, as well in the present. Currently in Europe. Are just doubling down on bad policy’s, presented in dishonest populareist ways of over promising and ultimately under delivering. In short the tax payer never gets what is presented to them at any time. Mr. Madoff when to prison for just that. One only needs to pay attention to the changing policy’s proposed to saving Social Security. No one seem to be asking who spent all the money? Where did it go? Or why do we need a government to mishandled a forced savings account in the first place? That has only been proven, to have been mishandled, mismanage, abuse, and wasted, for their dishonest exploitations of some abusive power over the people.
Why not a free market policy? One that allows people to take responsibility for themself’s. By allowing them to save tax-free for retirement, for their healthcare? Instead government providing support of people destroying their opportunity’s with self-abuse through, smoking, drugs and drinking alcohol, having children before they can support themself’s, providing unhealthy policy’s of the food stamp programs, and after school breakfast, lunch, and even some diner programs. All of whom provide opportunity to abuse the systems without excepting the consequences of their actions. Why not force people to save for their own safety net. Instead of forced taxation, for redistribution of all individual wealth, in support of misguided charity.
What happened to the idea of Ben Franklin; ” We in America have a national religion of neighbors helping neighbor.” Instead we have become a nation of belly aching, cry baby’s, expecting government to do everything for us. How is it that the present day policy’s of Obama, isn’t helping our economy, and unemployment? Could it be that they try to raise taxes for some nobel causes. But then spend these taxes on some wasteful fantasy’s of solar power. Last week we created 84,000 new jobs, but added 85,000 people on Social Security disability payments. Adding more people to the social net and fewer people to the work force. We are becoming a nation of more and more takers, rather than a nation of makers who will through prosperity support charity. It isn’t governments job to decide success and failure, who will be getting a bailout and who will not. Capitalism works best when there is an element of a healthy fear of failure to it. Other wise how do you decide what success is?
Where are the politicians who would work to in-power people to do for themself? Where are the policy’s that support the people’s ability’s to realize their own true talents, and personal potential? Instead we get politicians who’s only goals are to divide a nation, pitting one class against the other, or one ethnicity against another. For the purposes of dividing and conquering, for the rule of tyranny.
The real issues in this election is do you like higher taxes, bigger governmental growth, less individual opportunity’s equally distributed to all? In other words an average existence, void of rich and poor. With the outlook only having to make an average effort, for a slothful existence as the new definitions applied to what is to be the new successful. Where making an unequaled effort will only be refered to as ( “Being greedy!” ) rather than supporting someone in making an unequaled effort, in make some new products, or improvements through innovations, or inventions, for everyone’s enjoyment. Do we really want a command and control government?
Asking a government to do something for you, when your only to lazy to do for yourself. All the while expecting a life of ease, and irresponsibility’s. Is too much like asking your parents to pay for your existence, while you go off to play. You might look at your kids and ask yourself. ” Is that what they too will expect of you, to do for them when their all grown up? ”
politically looking towards your politicians to create a life of ease, with false promises, and political slight of hand. Is creating a political celebrity worship within yourself. Purely political celebrity adultery, expecting some futuristic fantasy of lies in becoming reality’s for the individual exploitation. All to meet your greedy, laziness of equal fairness, that only seem to be in a state of consistent redefinition of its self.
We the people don’t need a popular, or even loved politician to run for the office of the president. We already have that, and it has been disastrous. Proven by our nations 16 trillion dollars worth of debts that our grand children who haven’t been born yet will have to pay. The true definition of ” Taxation without representation! ”
We need a politician who will be looking to do the tough job of what seem to be somewhat unpopular. A CONCIERGE, a guardian of the God-given, constitutionally guarantee of liberty’s! Who’s only motivation is to do what is in the best interests of preserving individual liberty’s, expanding them beyond the present day for future generations. Preserving their liberty’s, and their expectations to have the same liberty. Not some memory of past liberty of yesterday. By limiting governments growth, taxation, uncontrolled spending, and finely balancing the budget for ever and all time going forward. Wrap up in a message of the best is yet to come.
To my fellow countrymen, who’s only motivation is to only seek out the purely political celebrity politician who will misguide, mislead, deceive, cheat, and lie while repeating past mistakes, by presenting failed policy’s of tyranny. Clothing these politicians in unnatural admiration and public love. Is to blindly, give up your freedoms and liberty’s to some slavish worship of some political celebrity adulterer! Who will only cheat you of the promises offered, with a gift of over promise and under delivering. Dishonest people who belatedly lie, don’t deserve reelection. We must all have a higher self-worth, then to alow purely political adulterers to openly lie without consequences in the voting booth.
All the best.

Remember that global warming is coming? Wink! Wink! You know about our gas guzzling, oil drilling, electric abusing, carnivore attitudes (like red meat devouring energy dinosaurs that we are), just CO2 producing travel addicted souls. Just who are we? Doing all of these things, just to kill the very place we live in? Not because we like to entertain with strawberries for our shortcake dessert, right after our exotic tropical fish dinner in february. NO! But the farther we have to go to get our food stuff ( Not that we ourself’s should go there. We have airplanes to do all that heavy lifting ), the more entertaining our dinner is for our unimportant guests. I don’t see a big problems after all. I’m the king of my world, and don’t mind sharing it with all of you out there. As long as I get mine! As long as my freezer is full, or at least the grocery store down the street has all of the exotic foods that don’t presently grow in my kingdom. Even in the dead of winter or at any other times for that matter. I decree it! At least a half-hearted demand, that all of those goodies are to be flown in!
But doesn’t that put more and more, hydrocarbons, co2, greenhouse gases, pollutants, into the atmosphere you ask? Attitudes of all of the kings and queens of the world are so self-centered. I then have to answer ” YES! ” But then I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like to eat regulary.Yes it does place more pollutants into the air. But even you, must come to a point of re-thinking evolutions way for modern man and having to adapting to the fact, that strawberries don’t grow were I’m living, in february. So it is up to each of us to compleat the evolutionary laws, in the cycles of life.
” everything must adapt to changing conditions in order to survive.”
Even if these conditions are changing right in front of our eyes. Like someone who spews out the warnings of (” The world is getting us hotter under the caller! OR! The global warming is upon us! The Ice is melting!”), what to do? Are we so self-inflated, over opinionated to think we are in control of the world, or the weather?
The science is pointing to global warming they say! Really? I thought science only points to the facts of truth. In fact, the scientific values systems or laws are.
1) That of truth-telling at all coasts.
If we alow science to stray away from the truth then we have nothing of value to base our opinions on. example : “Gravity doesn’t exist any more.” This seem to be a reasonable assumption to making for some untruthful science. Just in till we toss a ball into the air expecting it to just keep on going. But when it drops down striking us in the head? It to may knock some sense into our minds about what is true/false. ( Air plains that crash to the ground, is another example.) So what is more believable? Truth that is manufactured, or the truth that is? Is it our theory’s / believes, who are more important, or the plan truth? The thought of these outcomes using truth may then destroy our theory, thus our science. It doesn’t make it a good science to believe in, or just changing science to what we believe in. Telling a lie often and regularly enough, over and over to who ever who will listen to it. Often changes the small-minded. Science doesn’t make new facts of truth, or truthful science.
2) Applying empirical discipline :
If science is to have empirical discipline, can it be achieved through a lie or a half truthful theory? Doing so only for the purpose of a more favorable outcome of our own narrow point of view? isn’t empirical science! Then the only reason to prove anything that we hoping for, by the way of using science, is to prove our believes are of the most important of all. Truth be damned! Using false science we then can recreate scientific facts of the day.( The building of our house of cards!) Only to reassure ourself’s, as truly being totally self-inflated, giving ourself’s a gin-normas self-worth by way of using science. More like saying ( Look at me!! Just look at me!!!). Well then, we have only fooled the fools that choose to believe it. Empirical discipline implies that we have no vested interest in which way the outcome should be. We should be asking ” WHY” with everything! Science should be in the search of truth, And the truth has no agenda!
3) Skepticism :
I touched on that already some what. This means that the scientist will always ask like annoying kid question ” WHY”! Having a total neutral bias to the science or its outcome. Just in search of the answers to why! Also applying a standard of having a never-ending discipline to question any outcome of such, for a continued search of the truth. To be human is to be fallible. There for we must change things that we can also prove to be false, if the science is to be true. To apply anything other than, a total open mind, or to be un-jaded as to the outcome, is to assume to be God like, or infallible. We must remember always ” The truth has no agenda! ” There for the truth doesn’t care about the outcome. If we really do not know the outcome to a theory we believe in, and the theory is un-proven to be fact, then we really do not know! Should we then be willing to admit it as such, or lie about it?
Those who choose to believe in global warming, also tend to believe in evolution for the most part. They believe that evolution says that in order to get the changes in the world, or changes that can be seen in fossils, as the history of the world that has passed. It takes a great amount of time (millions of years ). But with global warming they tend to use a fraction, slivers of time, if you will to argue their points. Even if we were to use the ice cores that are drilled by researchers. Who then will clam that they can look back to prehistoric times by the tiny air pockets in it. Being able to measure the co2 in these tiny air samples. As the information they then use to make computer models to take a wild guess as to what weather will do, 10 years, 100 years, or longer out in time. Yet they can’t even tell us about the weather a week from now to a point of 100% accuracy. How can they then recreate the weather of the past, present, or future? They never come to a reasonable answer as to what caused the ancient ice ages to melt either? That’s right they clam there were 3 of these major ice ages. They all melted, long before man-made industrialization, causing the co2 in the atmosphere of today. But not yesterday! Is this do to asteroids, volcanos, or mother nature ( this usually is code words for saying GOD)? What warmed the world so the ice melted?
You see without being able to say for a fact that these ice ages melted by__________ (you can fill in the blanks.) How can we then say anything like co2, brought the changes that seem to be happening all around us. In theory, is this artificial or man-made warming, through industrialization? Will this will lead to higher temperatures for the whole world? Using reasoning like, the industrialization as being the cause of everything because it is man-made. We don’t really know for a fact, if the world had much higher co2 levels, or things that better control it? Only using air trapped in ice. Assumes that this air, the air which also flows at the polar ends had these co2 levels. Using air flows of today is not accounting for possible different air flows of the past?? As for the rest of the world that had plant life abundantly in it. It could have had higher oxygen in it as well? Maybe these plants had better way’s of capturing co2?? Because the world is a violent place this could also assume there was more volcano activity going on, or even less? This would also lead to higher co2 levels, or lower, not totally recognized in the ice. So how many of these different things were truly going on? By all of those things interacting with each other to produce the environment of those days, is still just as much a mystery. The word ” Mystery” imply’s this is the science of guessing at it!
But what is the average environment, or co2 in it all, past or present? Were the plants that don’t exist anymore, able to consume more co2 then the plants of today? Did dinosaur’s add to the global warming with methane gases ( Farts )? We don’t really know for a fact of what is, or was, there for, what are the averages? Net alone where are we in the scale of it all? Above average / below average / at the point of being average? Where are we? What do we use for the slandered standard of producing the scale of finding average anyway? What is the average temperature of the world suppose to be?
To then say it is mans actions as to the why. Is premature at best. But saying it with certainty, is more of a half truthful science. If we say man is responsible for all of the global warming! Then we can also can say, we can control all of the outcomes of it, as a fact. Can man control weather totally, by changing mans activities? If mans activities are only 1/2 responsible, then we warm up 1/2 as fast, by totally changing mans activities? But does the warming then continue to warm up at 1/2 the rate or speed? What if it is only .1% of the change taking place ( mans activities), if so then we control less and less you see. No matter how you slice it, we as men and women, still can not stop a volcanos from erupting! Just a fact. How can man then control something that was in existence before man came to be? Just how did the former ice-ages melt? Mans activities do need to be controlled somewhat. But we shouldn’t assume that we totally control that what is for the most part uncontrollable, by choosing to control more tightly everything man does! (Mother nature ( God ) may have other plans.) Man’s attempt of controlling just what is in Gods hands, leads to loss of freedoms for man, while destroying the earth just the same.
To those who believe in global warming and are active in the promotion of stopping it. By stopping industrialization, oil drilling, ect… People are only mad at the destruction of the earth and the misguided governments who are failing to control themself’s. In short they wish to upset the apple cart, by making an attempt at assuming the power of everyone through, the assumption of new leadership, a new management of sorts, by only managing the decay themself’s.
So in trying to also stopping the worlds ever-changing environment we live in. Man can pick up after his dog, when he walks the dog. If not! We make new laws then to control this! If no one does this then it will become a messy place for the rest of the world. But passing laws, that are to control our environment, like picking up after our dogs, doesn’t stop someone from stepping into some wild animals droppings. It only fixes some of the problems. Using this logic, we can out law factories from putting pollutants into the air to a great extent. (This is not such a bad thing, in fact a good thing with in reason). But we as man / people can not stop an increase of volcanic activities in the world. so we could have more of the same or worse. Right? No matter if it is natural or artificial ( global warming that is.) Well in Al Gores mind he can stop everything. ( What about an asteroid that can destroy the whole world Al!) I think you can run but you can’t hide from that.
I think in using the style of the beginning of this post. It should then be said. Man can solve everything! Wink, Wink! If an asteroid is coming towards us ( the world), to destroy us? Well what would Al Gore do? After all of those problems, to then create some green solutions to our warming problems, is going to be simple. Right Al Gore?
Problems and they’re solutions:
To much co2 in the atmosphere? Create massive new dry ice manufactures. Dry ice is solid co2. This can then be stacked up at the north , and south poles. That should stop global warming because dry ice is colder than frozen water. As well it will re-freeze any premature ice melt off. It would spark a new growth industry of travel to the north, and south poles as well. Because of the cool fog like action that dry ice creates. It will be a real big draw for rock-N roll bands I sure. The fog could then cool the world as well? Now that’s just COOL!
Should we still have too much co2 in the world? Then produce more soft drinks. They have co2 in them, that’s what gives them the bubbles, when you open them up. Planting more sugar cain will put more plant life in the world and thus more oxygen in it as well! Great for the producers of soft drinks. Diabetes not so good!
How about the outlawing of massive homes / all houses? Yes only letting people build tree houses! It is better. A win, win in short! This puts more trees in the world, thus like I said more oxygen in the world. Nobody like to cut down trees anymore. So build homes in them. Use the co2 that trees also hold within the wood / themself’s. Providing the homes / shelter, for all of us. This also gives the proper environment to our government. More like a Robin Hood style society, a better environment in which to rob us all in! Through imposing environmental taxes on us all. Also it gives more ground space, gives more space for those cows to grow up in. For those meat eaters out there. Note to self must have cow droppings laws though! But then we can dry these droppings, and burn them for heating in our tree houses. Wow! That’s new shovel ready jobs too! I’m on fire!
Out law cars / trucks / the internal combustion engine as well. Unless they run methane gas / natural gas. ( That’s just a nice way in saying gas from cow, animals, humans, or FARTS! Methane is also a global warming gas according to Al Gore who doesn’t like it. Maybe that why he walks around all stiff. Could it be… he has corked his butt to keep himself from contributing to global warming? I can’t blame him on that one. Who likes farts. Maybe we should use hydrogen gas for cars and trucks. Their only out put is H2O then. Just killing two birds with one stone so to speak. But in the future air travel will still be nonexistent. Sorry! There is no flying cows!
If you think this is nonsense? Your only half right. I’m simply only helping Al Gore out. You see he is the biggest ostrich, who has chosen to bury his head into the kitty litter sand box of over inflated self-worth. Leaving only his butt exposed to speak out. Like in the movie “Pet detective.” Where the detective talked with his boss using his butt. Al Gore kind of sounds like that when he speaks out on the issues of global warming. His speech would be like… “Leaving myself in position of cutting the levels of methane gas for everyone. My policy’s would…” What? Can we just translating his muffled speech, while holding a lighter to his butt? Who knew that farts truly do burn!!
“Keep your mouth closed Al. That’s not almond-roca!”
If you thing that’s just crazy talk? Well your right! Nothing like listening to an over inflated person thinking of themself’s as a scientists that think they are bigger then GOD! OOPI!! ( I ment Mother nature! ). Who then also makes clams, ” We can, and will control the world!”
Pinky and the brain made the same cartoon like clams as well in their day. They can not even control the cartoon channel on TV. Even to air their new plans to take over the world, in hopes to win over new converts to the plan. ” Watch more cartoons!”
Hope I cleared some things up for everyone? Now my only question, I have to answer for you all you out there. Is the same one I will leve you with as the end of this post. I can’t do everything for you!
Question; “In a God-less world! Why is nature such an uncontrollable mother?”
All the best!
Fueling the gender wars! Should I say? Promoting gender superiority! By acting out in such a way, that only gives the impression of superiority, one gender over the other. This doesn’t provide a workable attitude or even a willingness of working together, on any social issue. Promoting good respectable ways of improving things in society for all. Should be the goals of any and all genders. Just celebrating the differences between the genders isn’t enough anymore. No! Total superiority seems to be the only victory left in the war. Each side has dug-in deep into their positions and are just exchanging cannon shots of sorts. But then in the dark back rooms of government, there are those who are courting the government. To use on their behalf the social nuclear-weapons of the day. ( Laws & Regulations! Geared to taking total control, through manipulation of the enemy.)
Recently this news article was reported…
BOXER DECLARES WOMEN UN-FIREABLE ‘THAT’S HOW WE DO THINGS IN AMERICA’
By Washington Free Beacon Staff
Sen. Barbara Boxer (D., Calif.) said Wednesday the Paycheck Fairness Act would be implemented through the court system if passed, in an interview on MSNBC’s “Daily Rundown.”
“You have to obey the law and you cannot discriminate against a woman, if this were to be the law,” Boxer said. “You cannot fire her and if you fire her then you’re going to get sanctions by a fair court and a fair jury.”
This article and the quotes of Sen. Barbara Boxer ( D., Calif.) are shocking to say the least. The mind-set that is required to even think such, net alone openly presenting them as carefree attitudes of no big deal. Just correcting societal wrongs, is the job at hand. A self-absorbed superior thought processes, in implementing unfair policy’s and then trying to used them on the unsuspecting. This is the true shock of it all. This Senator really is committed to the cause of gender warfare! Which is deeply ingrained within her mind-set. What must also then be her most intimate of thoughts, set into motion through her actions as a Senator, supporting such policy’s as expressed.
As a male in this particular time and place in society, or at least, untill such a time that would warrant making the ultimate choice of a gender reassignment operation. I find it unnecessary to even in gauge in the battle over the biological differences of the genders. We should recognize these differences and alow people to play their roles with regards to their respective strengths, that each gender certainly has to bring to the table. Fighting just such a battle, unwilling to admit that all genders have certain strengths over the other gender. Is too much like kicking your own ass. For the purposes of relieving yourself of a head-ache. Battling over such differences is futile. Resulting in blind stupidity!
At the expense of sounding melodramatic…each day I’m getting weaker and weaker. With the idea of having to explain to those who only seem to express themself’s as ” a Half Witt ” ! ( AKA. having a ” Half a Brain “.) Should we as people change these unrealistic thoughts, and unrealistic visions of differences? Those who would engage in the tactics using gender warfare to make personal gains for themself’s. Though attempting to making any changes to biological law in a half crazed way. Will only succeeding at weakening one genders strengths, while presenting the true weakness of false strength within the other. Expressed thoughts followed by misguided actions of crazy policy’s, always results in unintended consequences! With the same old gender differences still firmly locked in place.
It would be a better use of time and energy, in making efforts at working together. One genders strength complimenting the others weakness, making both genders stronger and equally so.
When a society places advantages on one gender over the other, instead of celebrating the contributions each provides equally yet differently by the roles each play’s. Then all that is created is renewed resentment, and mistrust. With the theological focus on, not working together to return to the biological balance, but to turn the biological scale to an advantage. This is not evolutionary law! To change in order to survive, by adapting to the environmental changes that are constant. But rather, angrily, and bitterly making an attempt to recreate God’s creations.
People who only look to the problems in life but never notice the good in life. Tend to also continue looking for new problems when the old ones are solved. It is a hidden hatred within those people that drives them!
Sen. Boxer and people like her. Seem to place a concern on the aftermath of poor choices by individuals. The evolutionary pain they must endure because of those poor choices. Never is fully realized. Failing to recognize the entire problem as something to encourage people to avoid. Rather they open the doors of some misguided charitable governmental policy’s. Presented fully disguised as a safety net, but acting as a social trapping net.
Is that not rewarding irresponsible choices, while promoting a painless outcome, because of those same choices?
Dealing with pain, is life’s way of teaching through the college of hard knocks. Reaching into a fire to retrieve that red-hot coal, that is tempting you to do so. Isn’t the wisest thing to do! no matter how alluring the red glow! The burning pain tells the brain with lightning speed. That was stupid! But the hand may still have to endure being burned, as well having to except some recovery time to heal. So it is with life choices. Government tries to remove the pain of learning from those fires worth of choice. The lesson is then prevented from being learned. Getting burned, and acting out stupidly is going to hurt.
What makes capitalism work, is accepting there is always the a chance to fail. People who are led to believe that government will prevent failure even with poor choices that people choose for themselves. Is just stripping away the human potential locked inside of everyone. Making them dependant and beholding to governmental policy’s of failure. Rewarding failure produces more of the same without much thought to it. Or making a better personal effort in preventing it!
Senator Boxer is proposing making mothers / women un-fireable is just sexiest! These policy’s will change business and society in a negative way. This also will limit women in the work place. Continuing to hold them at a disadvantage within the business community and society as well. Businesses will just limit their hiring practices of hiring women . How is this uplifting, or promoting a positive result.
I suppose the next step will be forcing business to hire women, who never will be able to lay them off for any reasons. All in the name of unrealistic equalization! Leaving such a disadvantage to being a man. Men will then be forced to play the ridicules game. Dressing up as women claiming to be transgender, or having gender reassignment surgery. Just to play along with the new false equal.
Isn’t equally just a bitch!? So in the future having a midnight shadow on your face, will not be overwhelming evidence of being a women, or a man. It will be all in the hiring practices that will make those determinations if government has its way. Like the TSA, a hiring agency will have to feel everyone up! If you have balls? You need not apply!
No amount of bitchen, or governmental policy’s will ever recreate any equalization of apples and oranges. Only the blind ” Half Witt ” will have convinced themself’s that a policy, along with manipulations, as governments persuasion. Will convince nature other wise.
All the best.
Inquisitiveness isn’t limiting thought, through some actions or limitations of the questioning minds in the world. Education of the mind is the goal. Along with full explanation of questions that the mind comes up with. Is the search of knowledge, a true education unlimited? The basic school education is an absolute must for every one of our youth, of any generation, or of any nation. Education is the future of innovation, progress, new products, and a new lease on life. Expanding the mind also expands the many possibility’s, of dreams yet to be made into true reality’s. Reality there for expands, and improves positively. Governments have convinced us all that the basic education will and must be provided by governmental supervision, if not completely provided by a governmental school systems. Learning the basics is great and all… BUT! And that’s a big BUT! What about the education that is the most important? We all can learn the basic writing skills, math, sciences, reading skills…ect. But what about the most important of skills like ” Common sense!” Is this just one of those attributes that will ultimately get kicked to the way side of life? Is it a learned skill even? You have all heard of someone saying. ” That person is a true geniuses, but doesn’t have two pieces of common sense to rub together.”
At times the true stories that anyone can read, by picking up the latest on-line news paper, are truly fantastic. Some of these could just be the good works of fiction. The stories are just to unbelievable to believe. How is it possible for these to be true within our modern lives?
Take the stories of teachers who on their off times ( During summer vacation away from teaching ) happen to also be porn stairs. So what if they need extra income! Is it wrong? Can these teachers teach students the subjects in school and keep secret their porn stair lives? Is it a distraction? Will it also affect students study’s? Or does it in danger students in some way?
I know questions on top of questions. But what about them? Ever thought about all the what if’s? Yet the stories are out there on the net. The teachers just think it is their right to go and do what ever on their time. But they also fail to see that kids look up to them. Besides what if the word gets out and the boys with raging hormones can no longer concentrate on school studys?
Too many open-ended questions as to, the what if’s? But a true concerns for all parents whose job is wanting the best for their kids education. Just to mention one thing, out of the many things they must also do, in the process of raising kids up into adults. To then give government, the roll of educator and policy maker, in regards to the definition for a proper basic education. Is a bit much. Governments are not everything to everyone. Nor should anyone expect this, unless you also believe in unicorns. Prehaps a slight over stepping of powers at best. To these parents the government’s involvement could be a slice of heaven or pure hell depending on the side of the coin you find yourself on within any real life stories then. The job of education should start in the home rather than in school. Just because education is indeed the most important matter for success. Doesn’t mean that strange people in the governmental systems know what’s best. With teachers like the porn stars, or other problems. Who after all makes the decisions as what kind of influences they will have on the students they teach?
The news is full of teachers who have had unappropriated contact with students. They were caught with kids ( Having sex with them ). In some cases they even had kids themself’s with them. Yet some how these people who once had the publics trust and the responsibility’s as the agents of education. Are then some how thought to be rehabilitated at some point. Of course after doing some time ( A Prison Sentences.). Is that even possible? Once a molester always a molester? Maybe more appropriately, these people who were caught should always have a level of mistrust given to them with regards to the crimes they have committed. As part of the punishment for acting out un-appropriately and criminally by their actions, as well by their choices.
The value of someones life must be held to a higher standard, then allowing a molestation by none other than a person in charge of education, to commit needless crimes against kids. Therefor choosing an educator for any school. Should be a task of great scrutiny of every kind, and everyone who’s applying for the job. Is the risk to society to high of a price to pay, placing some believes on some kind of rehabilitation, on hear say of…..? If not a molester, a porn star as the educator? What guidelines should there be for what a teacher can have for a hobby, part-time job..ect? Who sets these guidelines then?
Some may say this is far and few between. with regards to these stories. Prehaps these adults who have been caught, deserve that mistrust. Should we then take on greater risk with regards to adults who were caught and rehabilitated? As a posed to some under age person who is also a molester? Giving them new trust in allowing teaching, or instruction, or interaction with other youth of their peers? Trusting how they would acting towards young people after wards? But what if they decide ….what if they are acting out un-appropriately? Would this be endangering youth? Does a molester deserve a second chance? But what if the perpetrator was a young person / kid who then assaulted others of their own age? should age play a part in deciding if and when, they know right from wrong?
In the case of an under age molester, doesn’t the state then find itself in the proverbial rock and a hard space? In having first the responsibility to protect the law-abiding citizens from just such assaults. At the same time they have assumed the responsibility’s for educating our youth, as well as rehabilitating the law breakers? Should there be a difference between the law-abiding, and those who don’t think the law apply’s, even if the difference between the two just happen to be between to youths? Should we as a society have an age of accountability? If so what age should it be? In the cases of unlawful actions between people, when will the kid gloves come off, and punishments passed down to fit appropriately to the crimes committed no matter the age of the perpetrators?
If a kid looks over his / her shoulder to see if anyone is looking then they know right from wrong. So how many times should society have to put up with actions of lawlessness from adolescents with little regard for the laws. At what point do we just say rehabilitation needs to be stronger then? When will society just say “QUIT”! Rehabilitation is a good thing, but also different. After so-called rehabilitation, to then ask society to give blind renewed trust, is just plain irresponsible.
In just one of such strange cases in my state. The state government took the position of placing the child molester into a school for the state sponsored education. But they also insisted not to release the info as to who or what the student did to the rest of the school student body, or even their parents. They stated that they need to protect the student in question. They didn’t want harassment to take place within the school. But after all, didn’t the education board and or the state government have a greater responsibility to protect the majority of people and students from all crime? Or the possibility of poor choices made by the person in question, being placing into school? At what point does the perpetrator have the right or greater rights, then those who haven’t made piss poor choices in their actions within their lives / behaviours towards others? Placing a student in secret as to what they have ben convicted of, is in my opinion criminal all on its own. It places a criminals need of protection above the innocent people’s needs for protection. The greatest job of government is the protection of its people, even if it is from themself’s.
I believe that government has the responsibility to teach everyone the same. No matter if these lessens are to be learned by the law-abiding or the lawless. The lessens to be taught are… If you break the law you then have a price to pay to society ( This could be prison time ) in addition to the price they will pay more than likely for the rest of their lives, through society’s mistrust of them, do to their choices. The penalties of crimes against society should never be hidden with unclear interpretations of the law. A life of crime, if chosen by anyone, even at the point of first contemplating criminal actions as a youth. Should also then have on the flip side. A true price for getting caught attached to it! Why would it need to be different? There must be some common sense to citizen and of government alike. Who created society’s laws? The public has intrusted these people placing them in charge to inforced the laws for the common good and protections of all.
As long as we have the questions of…. Why would anyone do this kind of thing to anyone else? Or could they again to someone else? We must also recognize that there is evil in the world, therefore people can act with freewill in choosing it if they must. If so! Let them also pay the true price of the crime. Prison sentences, and the possibly of a life time of mistrust. This should be the penalty! Rehabilitation doesn’t remove mistrust, nor should rehabilitation assume looking the other way as to what they have done in the past in the first place. Having some respect or fear for the law, in the back of ones mind, young and old alike. Should be the voices one hears, like the old saying… ” Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time!” Isn’t all that bad of a thing. Misplacing concern for how the young perpetrator feels or is made to feel isn’t something even to consider, as a replacement for some diminished safety in schools for the rest of our kids to expect. If you don’t think so! Then how about takeing the responsibility of explaining to the next victims in some school somewhere. That their safety wasn’t as important, then that of the perpetrators! I’m not advocating violence towards perpetrators of crime. But advocating youth perpetrators to be removed from every possibility of interactions with other youth in public schools, as part of their rehabilitation of the crimes they have committed. social issues
Why is it then so hard to teach the lesson of…. “If you can’t do the time! Don’t do the crime!”
There is no need to have a weak heart in administering punishments for crimes. Moving the punishment bar, isn’t having a greater sense of compassion. Misguided compassion is the fertilizer that grows crime to unbearable levels, by tipping the scales in favor of the criminals over the law-abiding.
Trust, and respect is earned! Just two pieces of common sense to rub together.

Lawsuit Filed After Boy Says He Was Sexually Abused By Classmate « CBS Baltimore http://cbsloc.al/JvztFQ via @CBSBaltimore
All the best!
Good-by king in welcoming going nuts as being the new normal. What happen to all of those people in the occupy the crowd? Why no protests of loosing one of your food groups then? After all! Using all of those drugs, the munches’ set in. Your thoughts may be. A supper big candy bar is the pick me up of choice, that you need! No thoughts on loosing your choice in eating one of those big boys then? No protests?
The latest out of the candy world, is the king size candy bar is gone! That’s right! You as a potential consumer, will no longer have a choice in buying that big boy. It is all about controlling the addict, or about how much sugar people are eating. So the Mars candy corporation is down sizing all their candy bars. The regular sized bar is about 280 calories now. But they plan to down size them to 250 calories soon. But the big boy, king of the king size will have to go the way of the dinosaur. Call it democratic evolution.
The constant evolving thoughts of controlling governments, have only accomplished to turn adult people into crying toddlers at best. Assuming the roll of parenting to mandated popular choice. You know the kind of choices? “You can choose any color you wish to have as long as its black!” was the choices offered when Ford first marketed his cars. Along with the governments know-it-all attitude of..”YOU SHOULDN”T HAVE TO MAKE A CHOICE OR LIVE WITH THE RESULTS OF MAKING CHOICES!” The reasoning is “candy and eating too much of it, leads to diabetes.” Governments popular thought is… “people can’t control themself’s in only eating some of the big boy candy bars.” Displaying their own know-it-all knowledge of knowing better. They clams “it’s for your health.” This is why we need smaller candy bars. Are we then going to alow those of small-mindedness, but over inflated self-worth, along with wrongly opinionated over barring government, creat these official food czar’s? Who will just run our lives to a point. It will be great! Right? After all making choices shouldn’t be one of your simpletons tasks to do at anyway, or at any time in your lives. Yes Your choices may affect you and only you. But the government knows best. So making a choice for yourself with regards to candy and sugar is just going to be controlled for you. Or so the over inflated thought proses goes down that slippery slope dragging you with it.
Just what is next? The candy police at the nearest 7-11, checking your sugar levels, and marking the test results on your sugar card. You know the one? The one next to the driver’s licence issued by the same people. If you go past your daily limit of sugar, they will issue a ticket. Just think of it as when you are receiving this kind of ticket of course. Just as a reminder to slow down your speeding on the highway to diabetes. It is all about the policemen / sugar-police keeping you and others safe, right? The revenue from ticketing people will just subsidize health care anyway…. Right?
Smaller candy bars in the market place, along with uncontrolled or under self-controlled individuals buying them doesn’t make a healthier environment or market place. These kind of consumers will only be forced to eat more than one bar. I suppose one could then make the argument. That opening more than one bar is getting an increase in exercise.
If company’s just alow themself’s to be bullied by government like this with a false sence of doing good for their consumer. Then they deserve the consumer to pack it all in and stop buying their products. Never to go back to them again. After all, if just a smaller candy bar is the wizards of wisdom solution, for people eating too much sugar in their diets. Then ban candy bars out right! Totally! At least then you would have some street cred, as a community leader of health.
Let’s face it people. The unintended consequences of government meddling with your choices, isn’t doing anything for your health. But rather it is what takes your ability to control your life from you. With smaller candy bars it sounds good. But is it? What’s stopping you the consumer from buying 2, or 3, or 4, or mass more of the candy bars, then stuffing them into your face to get your candy fix. Someone could reason that you’re getting a weeks worth. What is missing from the view of government in seeing all of the empty but smaller candy bar wrappers around you. Government isn’t seeing the true picture of their adult toddlers they have created. Nor do they see “You” as their toddler stuffing your face with sugar by the spoon full straight from the bag with the biggest serving spoon you can find? Just serving up the sugar fix to the addiction. If one is an addict to sugar, binge eating candy bars will not be controlled with smaller candy bars. Then what is accomplished, in all of this?
Down sizing King candy bar doesn’t do anything for your health personally. But it does become more expensive to buy smaller candy bars for getting your candy fix. less product ( AKA SUGAR! ) at a higher cost to you the consumer. This produces a higher tax revenue for the government as well. If it was only for health reasons? Then we would BAN IT ! Thoughts are, down sizing the candy bars will have a health impact to the population, or so at least the reasoning goes. If it doesn’t? We then have to have the sugar police! These are the loose ideas swimming around the toilet bowl of the liberal democrat’s mindset. Which then assumes it to be a win, win! Creating by forcing good / better health is win one! The sugar police is an unintended job produced by controlling sugar for public safety. Win two!
What makes this candy company’s collapse to governmental control, even more suicidal to its self. Is if this was all about health? Then they can be viewed as destroyers of health by the government then. The liability in a legal sense, along with manipulations of such company’s by the government, for the false sence of health, will actually drive them to bankruptcy or legal hell.
Because our parents, in this case ( the government ) knows best! It couldn’t be their lack of willingness to control candy makers on our behalf can it? NO! The governments excuse is ” We made them make the bars smaller. “So people couldn’t be held to have any responsibility’s for themself’s? Or should we?
Who’s health is it anyway? Shouldn’t the ones whose health it is have also the burden of responsibility and cost for it? If someone can handle the cost of destroying their health without the help of the government, or its involvement in such destruction. Then the cost of fixing it should be theirs as well.
If you have become half crazed with allowing the government to control every aspect of life, then you shouldn’t have any complaint when you get short-changed with your expectations. Don’t complain about the vegetables that will certainly be forced down your throat! Because of some misguided conception that they can prevent cancer, and do so cheaper than synthetic drugs. Also cutting the cost to the government health care system.
Don’t complain when you find yourself in McDonald’s ordering the supper size fries, with a big-mack, and shake. When your eyes pop out of your head viewing the burger. Its new size will resemble a 50 cent piece, supper size fries will only be one fry about 4 inches long, and your shake will be served in a 2 ounce size. All for the sake of reducing heart disease / diabetes in your life. Oh Yea! I all most forgot, That will be $10.50 please!
If government controls everything in your life, they will certainly be able to take control of everything for you in life. Society may rethink its position. We in society are not needing any present help in deferring the cost for destroying health, we then certainly don’t need the governmental help in paying the cost of restoring health once destroyed! In other words. ” TAKE SOME RESPONCBILITY”S! ”
There is no need of wrapping ourself’s up with a false sense of victimhood, using flawed ideology of the liberal government. Who says ” We will do it all for you! ” As being the toilet bowl mentality, that we refuse to flush.
The attitudes of winners are “ I have been endowed by my creator with the right to pursue happiness. Which is determined by my life’s goals, and choices, being able to make choices for myself is what makes one an adult and liven free! In the aftermath of such choices we are also happier / happier adults.”
If you need a stress reliever? Enjoy-em while you have them. Other wise say. “Good-by king! Welcome going nuts! “
Mars Reduces Candy Bar Sizes and Promotes “Responsible Snacking” http://www.delish.com/food/recalls-reviews/mars-reduces-candy-bar-sizes-clone-1329747220?src=soc_twtr via @delishcom
All the best.
The tag line in the terminator movies “I’ll be back!” Is one to live for now days. Back in the movies the machines were taking over, and were wiping out the humans. So they, the humans made a machine and sent it back in time, to protect the father of the resistance of the future freedom fighters. The arch-enemy of the machines. Not that I believe in some parallel universe of sci-fi like world of reality. But we as human, we are in a fight for our lives with the best inventions produced by the best minds of men. The time-saving devices, the best of their kinds, the best that were able to be created by the unseen hands of some humans. The new competitors of our days…The machines!
Misguided ideas of futuristic men and women? Who’s only focus was to make life easer for everyone. Just look around in your everyday life, you will see something of some sort, a machine that will make it all possible for you and others alike.
It just sucks to see in the news every day or night, that unemployment is now at or near 9%. Every politician and government agency is always spouting about having to find ways to create new jobs. Saying ” We must find policy’s, and or new ways to have employers to start to hire new people.”
You know president Obama was somewhat right with his observation. If you haven’t taken the time to watch the video clip, well click the link. Its short! http://youtu.be/yIBhg1v4bMo
At the turn of the century most of the population was employed. About 20% of the population worked in agriculture. Despite the work force working in agriculture, and a good portion of the rest working people working manual labor jobs. Finding a job to do, was somewhat easier, if your were willing to do manual labor.Some how manual labor has become a bad word these days. It implies having to make a bigger effort then a free hand out. Remember the stories of grandparents who used to tell us about. Having two jobs and still going to school, and raising a family all at the same time?
By introducing automation, doing more and more things in an efficient way. Cutting out jobs for the less educated in the work force. All though we have convinced ourself’s that Americans don’t like to do some jobs that require manual labor in our day and age. Some would all so insist that’s why we need immigrants legal or other wise ( Just a way of saying illegal immigrants ). To do all of those kind of jobs.
Some of the jobs that we don’t have anymore are; elevator operator, Ditch digger ( jobs that backhoes as well all kinds of modern machinery do) lots of farm work was automated like this. ( that’s why 1 or 2% of the population now days works on a farms. Yet we produce more food today for the world then we did at the turn of the century.) All kinds of office work has been automated by computers, or through computerization. This is why President Obama mentioned ” ATM’s”! One only has to look to the american auto workers who are being replaced by robotics. It is labor intensive to build cars, so if there is a way to automate it? It will be done! Because there is a savings to produced by robotics, at the cost of someones job out there.
There are only two major things that have given our modern America high unemployment. All though there are lots of smaller issues that also contribute as well. The two biggest of these, are produced by policy’s, attitudes, lack of leadership, and a willingness to educate. Setting good examples is a good leaders only job of sorts. You know “lead by example. Don’t ask anyone to do something that you as the leader wouldn’t be willing to do!”
1) An intensive to promote a sense of entitlement; Like the social entitlements, to put it plainly. unemployment insurance has become just an unrealistic expectation. A) people think they should get paid for being in-between jobs. All though, refusing to take a job if it means cutting into their unemployment. B) The welfare benefits. Just the same things there. People evaluate taking jobs and getting off these social systems based on if they get more in a pay check then in benefits. ( Despite the fact they may not have education, or taken the time to improve talents for higher paying jobs.) C) Most people who have been on the system, also knows just how to play the system. ( Cash jobs under the table ) D) there should be a government effort to teach people to save moneys for themself’s. Just in case of the great unknown in life! Rather then promoting irresponsible living, and rewarding more of the same. Just to name one of the biggies and a few smaller ones. I do not wish to paint with a broad brush here. But to close ones eyes to this kind of getting around the system, or promoting a life style that traps people with in the system, is to only deceive ones self totally!
Not that the belief in, not having a willingness in helping people in any way, is appropriate! Because that just wrong! But I do believe that people should be helping people. Rather than the government helping in ways that are total inefficiently, or supporting poor policy’s that only aid the misguided charity’s ( preformed by government agency’s) who then miss the mark of actually helping. Most people feel that it isn’t wrong, gaming the government system, so the abuse of any system set-up by the government will be fair game to abuse if given the chance. Corrupt systems do have a habit of promoting some corruption all on its own.
Ben Franklin said some such ” We the people have a national religion of neighbors helping neighbors.” He also said such of “We should only help those who need it, to a point of those people remaining yet still some what uncomfortable. So they will still make an effort themself’s.”
2) This leads us to the biggest of the two problems; Machines! We may have invented them, to be our slaves of a modern age of sorts. After all it’s not hurting anyone as in humans. (they are things made of steel, not flesh and blood! Working without the need of rest, with no way of organising into labor unions, none of these will ever go on strike. They have no need of food! Unless you consider electric power as that what they may use as food. Most of the time it is only humans who will be the ones who complain, the machines only aimlessly keep on working for our society’s benefit. So the so-called mad scientists may think. If there is a job that is also repetitive in nature we can build a machine to do it.
The result of this mechanization, computerization, improvements to productivity. Has resulted in ourself’s getting relaxed with an ever easing of our lives. Always looking for the guarantees to all of our uncertainties in the world, as well as our very existences. Even to the point of guaranteed life its self.
Example: Cars and soon to come trucks that have the abilities to parallel park, without us controlling the auto through the presses. Reasons for automating the parking presses is ” Its safer for other auto owners who would other wise have damaged other cars, do to the abilities or lack there of by other drivers. This would eliminate risk!
Soon we will have little reasons to make a reasonable effort, for that what we want in life. Machines for just about everything. Used to have us do little else. Then having them look out for our deepest desire. Leaving us in search of new interests for our idle hands.
Now I know where the saying ” idle hands are only useful in the devils workshop!” comes from. No surprise then, in a recession there is also a rise in crime.
There has to be a way to inspire people in helping out their society, in exchange for some social benefit, they to may then have wiliness to do some manual labor, showing some pride in the fact that we are Americans who still believes in the pursuit of happiness. Not ! happiness bought about by or paid for by free handouts, despite all of the machines of automation!
A life basing it self on a life of just looking for free handouts. Strips the self-worth, self-esteem from the individual. Only inspiring the person to a life of total dependency at best. Filling the rest of the individual with envy for those who yet still see the American dream, through individual efforts on the way to success. True slavery is the keeping of individuals from making, or benefiting from their own efforts, a total successful life, or a life better for their kids. http://youtu.be/bavou_SEj1E As well as a false sence protecting them from themself’s, or so it seems. But allowing people to live with their own poor choices, and the responsibility’s of them. May teach them through the college of hard knocks, not just to repeat the same old mistakes, in preparing them for their own future successes.
Charity should still leave people making their own efforts. This will inspire people to also return in giving charity to others. The foundation of future success for everyone.
Loosing the feeling of being useful in life. Not having a sence of taking a reasonable action for your own success, or a sence of giving back to a society who has given of its self to you. Will lead to a slow self-destructive view of uselessness, also known as the terminated will.
All the best!
No! I don’t have any thing against personal computers, the other PC. No! It’s the( political correctness ) kind of PC, that I have a big problem with! Are you tired of stopping your self from saying something that is common place with most people. But then people who have most problems with others who are not PC are of sorts most problematic, of the uncommon people kind. Just what is the world coming to? Is the question I’m sure you have heard a time or two, as I have. Disappointing that we even have to ask, as if we have no control over our world. We are not the powerless! With only the PC people being the all-powerful. In fact it is the other way around, the weak, and thin-skinned, who are un-sure of themself’s that drives them to a point of total manipulation, in order to force us unwillingly so, into some sort of political correctness. Also known as being PC!
Words have meanings or so we have all thought. That’s the purpose for a dictionary. To give us a way to look up words and their meanings. To be able to use them correctly.The PC types only have the goal of changing the meanings of words and their use of them in the publics mind, by way of force, manipulation, embarrassment, and when all else fails, use the powerful lawsuits! Shouldn’t it all be for a positive change if any? Yet PC people have changed these meanings of certain kinds of words. All to rearrange the mindset of society in excepting their political views more easily. It is for the total self-centered, self-indulgent, to be able to appease themself’s, into believing all is well with their lives, and or the choices they’re making in living life. Maybe to cast out of their minds all doubt, or to give into the pinky and the brain thoughts of taking over the world! It is funny that these groups who are in the minority, are trying to control what goes on in the lives & minds of the majority. In a free country, and one who decides things by the attitude of ” Winner takes all!” it is a battle of the definitions of words and the use of them. Only taking on an attitude of complete control through manipulation, for their purposes of avoiding ones own problems with feeling guilty by their own chosen actions or inaction in life. This mind-set of the political correct kind, has only convinced themself’s they are not weak but most powerful.
Those who would use PC in order to change society. Often use it, without the use of really good thought. They are only offended by some words or phrases, and mad as hell because of it.To a point of needing to change this attitude, unjustly so. They often replace these words and phrases, which are ridiculous, if not out right stupidly so! Should anyone oppose their attempt to change words. They have the notion to attack these people with the belief of ” You don’t care about others!” A misguided view indeed. Those who wish to blindfold themself’s with PC attitudes, do not seem to recognize their own self-imposed over barring opinions, of self, as an offence of others. Not recognizing that is being stupid! They often replace words, phrases, and with them the attitudes of average people, in believing these new words are so much better to use. Because they then will not be stepping on other people’s toes. Yet they seem to over look, when in a mine field one shouldn’t make sudden moves!
Going to the US POST OFFICE to mail out some packages for Christmas. I came across many of my reasons why I don’t like to go there. First I got there, the line was out the door with others who had the same thoughts running through their minds. Second the US Post Office has become a place for the homeless to go and stay warm during cold weather. Much like other governmental buildings like libraries. There is a place, the outer court where the PO boxes are, that the homeless just sit and wait for spring I suppose. But for the people like myself who are clearly just trying to conduct business. This only complicates things by creating a human obstacle course.
In the back of the PO box court there was several people just sleeping. In the front of the room by the doors that also lead to the main room where the Post Office was located. There was this young man, who was engaged in a battle with darkness. This epic battle between good and evil. Yet true to form, evil was invisible to all but this young warrior. He seemed to be using kung-fu and some ninja like moves in order to gain the upper hand. The upper hand was scaring people for sure. Everyone was giving as wide as possible the room needed for the battle that was raging on, while going through this doorway entering the post office.
Once I entered the post office I immediately saw the over sized display of Christmas cards and envelopes. Just for the last minuet forgetful person who suddenly realizes. ” Oh crap! Ant Ellen! At least I have to send her a card.” Not saying this happened, but the thoughts was going through my mind, as I was wasting time standing in line waiting my turn.
Just what is it with the post office and their polices. When a line is out the door they always have just 2 of the 4 stations that are available to serve the public open. Or someone is standing there but not doing anything. When asked they reply. ” I’m at lunch!” At 10:00 AM?
Slowly inching my way closer and closer I come into ear shot of hearing some conversations between the person at the counter and people sending their things off. What a break from the great views of the people in front of me and their backs. Sweet noise. Voices at last other than those who are only complaining about the line. Complaining doesn’t make it move faster. It is just what it is. Hurry-up and wait!
” Merry Christmas! ” a good spirited person said to the post office man behind the counter, as they stepped up to him.
He looked up at the new customer and smiled. ” Sorry I can’t say that! But what I can say is happy new year! So happy new year!” again smiling and then adding. ” How may I help you today?”
Thinking to myself. Did I hear that correctly? What was that?
The man then said he was chasing after some stamps, and wanted to mail off this big box. Seemed unfazed by the statements of the postal worker. Was this the effects of PC? Was this man just wanting to mail and run, just no time to even ask why? He finished up his business and off he went, hoping not to have to repeat the presses so it seemed.
” Next! Can I help the next person please?” The postal worker then called out. The whole line then moved what seemed like two steeps forward, and back one just to give some room for the person in front of you. So it didn’t seem like you were invading their space too much.
” Dude! What is it with you? Don’t you realize it is Christmas? Would it hurt to say Merry Christmas?” This customer was bold I thought. Somewhat making a scene, yet justifiably so.
” Sorry. But we at the postal service have guide lines we must follow, so not to offend any one.” He smiled. Then asked in a friendly voice. ” Now how may I help you today?
” Offend!” The customer laughed. ” You have a Christmas display over there that is bigger than life, right in front of people waiting for your slow butt! And you are not to offend others? Please!” he then sorted out some letters just what he was going to mail out. ” I would like to mail these with 2 day delivery and these here with… when ever santa gets in his US postal slay, and over the house and then drops them over the side.”
Now here is someone with no use for PC people and there stupid systems. They can’t say Merry Christmas? But only saying happy new year. Yet only standing practically under the Christmas banner for all to see, or is it just to sell Christmas cards? Any one see the wisdom behind that one? If your one of those who doesn’t like the fact of, christian celebrations like Christmas? Get some thicker skin, or stay home. Yes my thoughts were working over time. But then it hit me! No one else was even saying with the lowest of voices to each other, anything about this brave soul who was taking on the unrealistic post office rules.
” Hear is your money! You may take some time to see that it says right here IN GOD WE TRUST on it.” He slapped the money down on the counter, and jabbed his index finger onto one of the bills indicating just where it was printed. ” Next time when you, or your kind try not to offend people, check to see just what opinion is in the majority and what opinion is in the majority! Merry Christmas jerk!” Then he to walked out. obviously upset, and offended. The PC postal polices failed for sure.
” Can I help the next person please?” The counter man seem unfazed by the last in counter. I don’t think he saw that he was offending people with the political correctness ordered on him by this governmental agency of stupid polices. Just how does someone become brain-dead to the point of not even seeing it! That in trying to stop the offence of some, you will always offend the rest,if not all!
As the postal man finished up with the consumer in front of him he said.” Happy holidays!” Probably thinking he was smoothing over some ruffled feathers of those still in line.
” Same to you sir. Happy holidays to you.” The customer answered, with a smile. What seem like more of a Christmas spirit in her, then with some of the last few customers. She turned and was gone as well.
Did she realize that she made a choice not to at least express her opinions of what she felt. About what she had to have over heard? Did it matter to her? If not! Why?
I told this story to some of my friends, just what I saw in my experiences at the post office. Most of them got involved with some sort of conversation about the Christmas season in a favorable way. But then there is one. Who thinks that the government has a job to do, making everything fair, and even. Who should also have a separation of church and state like attitude towards everything religious.
“Do you think the government should teach religion in school?”
“No! Are you crazy?” He responded harshly.
“Well they already do! They teach evolution. A belief of sorts, that requires faith. OH ya so does religion. What say you?”
My bud was silent, but still here, so he may still listen to me? ” You do know that religion is a belief that can not be proven with out some doubt, and so, the same things are true with evolution. Because with everything between the two religions, the question remains unanswered. What started it……..? Can you prove it?” I said. But may friend just remained silent, but thinking about what I just said.
“Well would you be surprised if I said we have separation of church and state already?” He shook his head. Bracing himself for what was coming. “Well we do. The separation is not in new PC rules of the day. But in the fact that government doesn’t have an official church. You don’t see anything wrong with a government agency promoting Christmas cards, Yet not being able to have friendly greetings to go with the season to say Merry Christmas? Using Christmas for profit is grand? But has nothing to do with christian believes, and saying it promotes the believe of christians?”
“Well we can say Happy Holiday!” He exclaimed hurriedly.
“Now that’s what is wrong with political correctness ( Being PC.). It makes people with not enough common sence to rub together to show just how stupid PC has and is becoming. The root words and organ of this phrase comes from the old phrase that people with more common sence, used to say THESE ARE THE HOLY OF DAYS. Making a reference to their religious seasons celebrations. This later became HAPPY HOLIDAYS.”
When we have a government only concerned with separation of church and state as not having nothing to do with any religions celebrations. Yet reserves the right to profit from it! They show just how evil they have become. Why do we have to make these separations when we are a christian nation by the over all believes of the population. 97% believe in some sort of GOD. This could then go to say they have believes of such, so they may also go to church. A government should simply reflect its population. If the people choose to say happy holidays, or Merry Christmas, then what is wrong with those who are employed by the government, to be able to choose for them self’s as to which they would respond? As long as it is kind and respectful to all.
Trying to save someone’s offence from Christmas, or the religious aspect of it all. By making polices that along with political correctness should save everyone unequally so, feeling un-comfortable within their own mind-set that is. Some sort of common sence should then come to the surface. Realizing you saved one persons offence, by offending the other persons in your employment. Because they may have these kinds of religious believes. In the end Political correctness ( Being PC ) only completely offends the freedom of thought, equally for everyone!
We have freedom to think, and think as we wish. We have laws to control actions, not thoughts. We have free speech, to speak out as well. There is no need to protect the offended! For they have the freedom to move on and not listen to it. Free speech was and is designed to protect offensive speech. For non-offensive speech needs no protection!
“A person changed against their will, at the end of the day, has the same opinion still!”
Be careful what you wish for!
Merry Christmas. All the best!
