Government — Thieving Middle Man

leave a comment »

Politicians offer up largesse to buy votes.

Every election, politicians promise voter economic benefits to get your vote.

The problem is all money, goods and services — every last dollar of it — must be created through someone’s hard work.

Remember, government has no money on its own. It produces nothing, so it earns nothing. Government has only the money it takes from taxpayers or borrows against the payments of future taxpayers.

Everything government “gives” to one person or organization must be taken from another person or organization. Every dollar that government redistributes to someone, it must first take from someone else, and then deduct administrative costs before passing it on.

Approximately, 100 million people received over a trillion dollars in benefits.

This redistribution cannot continue indefinitely; growing in both the number of people receiving this charity and the amount they receive.

If this continues, it will reach a tipping point where there are too many people receiving government benefits and not enough people to pay for those benefits.

Then, what happens?

Not enough benefits to go around.

What happens if producers just stop producing?

Nothing is produced!

There will be nothing to be re-distributed.

What will the freeloaders do?

So-Called Religious People Playing Lip Service To Their God

leave a comment »

Day after day, so-called religious people say they believe in god; whatever/whoever their god is.

And day after day, they lie.

Purest hypocrisy.

Most religions teach that people should live a virtuous life.

Very few do.

Most people live lives of evil.

Especially those who profess their religious beliefs the loudest.

The worst offenders are priests, ministers, rabbi, etc.

From people’s actions, it would seem that All gods are evil.

Any god that does not punish evil is an evil god.

If you believe in god, if your god is good, then you should lead a virtuous life or be destroyed by your god.

A virtuous life include even the smallest action.

Scottish Independence

leave a comment »

Scottish Independence as in the separation from England.

Many people especially the Scots think this would be a good thing.

It could be, for the right reasons.

If it is about emotions such as pride or hate, they will not last long after independence.

If it is about increasing your food from the government trough, then the evil that follows will get you.

If it is about better government, then yes but the real job comes next:  making the government work; little hope because people of the above two groups will take control.

Separating Scotland from the United Kingdom will be a long, slow, hard process; nothing will be easy or smooth.

Is this a solution to Scotland’s problems?

NO!

Is staying united with England an answer?

NO!

What is the answer?

No one wants the answer.

Criticizing Sports Coachs

leave a comment »

Sports coaches lose more games than players, by far.

Both in college and professional  leagues.

But no one points this out and criticizes these coaches.

Yesterday, the football coaches of the Universities of Georgia and Southern California lost games for their teams.  Both teams in the Top Ten.

Everybody just turns a blind eye.

Why?

Not important; it is only entertainment.

What is important is the serious lack of rigorous criticism of important issues in society.

“Everybody wants to go to Heaven, but nobody wants to die.”

leave a comment »

There is a price to pay for everything you want in your life. Many chatter about being willing to pay the price, but few will actually do so. If you are serious about something, you need to be prepared to pay the considerable price tag associated with that blissful state. It doesn’t come free.

So, before you open your mouth and start whining, you can have the change you want if you work for it.

No one or organization is going to give you anything.

Only failures and/or the evil want something for free.

FATE, FOOLS AND STUPIDITY

leave a comment »

Found on the Internet and edited:

Few people can stomach the idea that public life is out of the conscious control of the authorities in whom they have placed so much faith. They lack a faith in, and an affection for, fate.

People don’t like fate. Fate is the bad stuff that happens when no one is in charge, when chaos reigns. Instead, they believe in the ability of right-thinking experts to “do something” to bring about a better outcome than fate had in store for them.

They want a leader who will slay their enemies and bring the home team to victory. They want officials to deliver full employment, someone else’s money, the America’s Cup, and free beer on tap 24/7. They want someone in the driver’s seat who will take them where they want to go.

History is largely a record of fender benders, sideswipes and pile-ups.

History ignores the trillions of very good decisions made by private citizens in their private lives. We don’t see the calculation of the boatmen, bringing their barks to shore just before the tide turns.

We hardly notice the bowman, who sends his arrow to a spot just a few feet in front of a racing rabbit. Nor does history spend much time on the brakeman, who carefully brings the 11:07 am from New York to a halt directly in front of travelers standing on the platform at Pennsylvania Station in Baltimore.

But the competence of the brakeman, boatman and bowman make us overconfident. If we can bring a train to rest at exactly the right spot, why not an economy? If we can impose our will, by force, on a rabbit, why not on Alabama? If we can drive a car, why not a whole society?

It seems reasonable enough. And it agrees with our core intellectual bias – well established since the time of Aristotle and re-established during the Renaissance – that we are able to see, understand, and direct our future.

But if that were true, history would be a lot less colorful than it is. What actually happens is that people take on big projects. And fail miserably.

END

The fools want someone in charge so bad; they will accept anybody, even the most corrupt and incompetent.

People are so lazy they will allow anyone to be in charge as long as they do not have to do anything.

The stupid and the lazy are the cause of the wrong people being in charge which leads to the mess you are in.

QUALITY

leave a comment »

Very few people can tell the quality of anything.

They use brand names, the opinions of the herd, the opinions of celebrities, and advertising(lies) to falsely determine quality.

Anything of quality costs time, money and effort.  A made-to-order item can be of  high quality; but you will have to wait for it, pay a high price and the maker will have to put a lot of effort into it.  Quality goods and services lack convenience.

As a result, people change to lower quality goods and services:

-  They cannot tell the difference

-  If they can tell, they lie to everyone(themselves included) about the quality

-  They refuse to pay the cost for quality

Thus, everyday the overall quality of goods and services decreases.

If fools can understand, let alone measure quality, why would they want it?

For those interest in having quality; old-fashioned” often means “high quality”.
