POLITICS

leave a comment »

Politics is only about some people trying to control others for personal gain.

It is not only in government but in business and other organizations.

Since it is only about personal gain, it is time to end politics.

It is time to replace politics with management.

Management not leadership.

Management by talented individuals who can get the job done.  It is not about leaders making the people feel good which is just part of politics.

Will this ever happen?  Very unlikely.  Why?

Because people just keep on trying to control others for personal gain.

ECONOMY

leave a comment »

How much worse will the economy get?

A question on the minds of many people.

The economy will get much worse.  And there is no reason to stay positive.

The president and everyone else has no idea how to solve the economic crisis.  This is the message that everyone needs to understand.  The economic crisis will not be solved.  It can be solved.  Repeat:  The economic crisis can be solved but it will not be solved.

So what are people supposed to do?

Three options:

-Keep their head down and pray.

-Wait for the coming global recession.

-Find someone who can solve the problem.

Choices 1 and 2 will mean a much lower standard of living.  Choice 3 is the answer, but this means each individual must do his part.  Stop relying on the government.  Increasing taxes on the rich over and over again will not solve the problem.  Increasing government spending will not work.

As the old recruiting poster said:  We need you.

BUSINESS

leave a comment »

Most people think Business is a dirty word.  Big business is being blamed for the global recession.  These people are WRONG.  They are ignorant and have a herd mentality.  It is not business that has brought on the global recession.  The blame rests squarely on government at all levels worldwide.  Government was urged on in this economic disaster by the people; the lazy, the ignorant, the get rich quick, the one who think the government owes them everything.

These actions contributed to the global recession:

-Using personal residences as ATM machines

-Trying to get rich quick by investing in bubbles; real estate flipping,  day trading,

-Thinking the government can and/or should fix all problems

-Believing business should pay high wages for no work

-Spending more than earnings

-Thinking that you are entitled to anything

-Blaming others for anything that goes wrong

 

People are getting the economy they deserve, not the economy they want.

Federal Government Failures

leave a comment »

Found on the web and worth passing on:

 

This should be read and understood by all AmericansDemocrats, Republicans, EVERYONE!!

To the President and all 535 voting membersof the Legislature, both parties.

It is now official -you are ALL corrupt morons:

a..The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775.You have had 234 years to get it rightand it is broke.
b..Social Security was established in 1935.You have had 74 years to get it rightand it is broke.
c..Fannie Mae was established in 1938.You have had 71 years to get it rightand it is broke.
d..War on Poverty started in 1964.You have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillionof our money is confiscated each yearand transferred to “the poor”and they only want more.
e..Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965.You have had 44 years to get it rightand they are broke.
f..Freddie Mac was established in 1970.You have had 39 years to get it rightand it is broke.
g..The Department of Energy was created in 1977 toessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.

!!!You have FAILED !!! in every “government service” you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars.

AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM ??

YOU THINK YOU CAN RUN THE AUTO INDUSTRY…. THE BANKING SYSTEM?????

MAYBE WE OUGHT TO KICK YOUR EGG-HEAD BUDDY BUMS OUT OF OFFICE AND HIRE WALMART TO RUN THE GOVERNMENT ???

WALMART SEEMS TO KNOW HOW TO RUN A BUSINESS… WHY DON’T YOU GUYS JUST ADMIT IT’S WAY BEYOND YOUR PAY GRADE, AND QUIT?

Folks, keep this circulating. It is very well stated. Maybe it will end up in the e-mails of some of our “duly elected’ (they never read anything) and their staff will clue them in on how Americans feel.

“You can’t fix stupid, but you can vote it out”;

TALENT in Hiring

leave a comment »

In the entertainment industry, it is the talents the makes a project work: no talent; no movie, television show, CD or play.  These people are artistic and creative.

In other industries, organizations or business, these individuals have more effect on success or failure.

This is the issue.

Most organizations hire based upon prior experience and likeability.  This is a big mistake.  Organizations that want to maximize their success, should hire pure ability  —  generally intelligence.   Why do organizations hire the way they do?  Because people are immature.  They will not hire someone more capable than themselves.  They hire people they like.  They like people like themselves.

The best example of this is government.  Government workers from the president on down are much less capable than those in industry.  Top people from industry go into government service for the notoriety.  Once in government, they do not do a good job.  It is for their personal public relations.  It is also possible that the top people from industry are not that capable.

This is a reason the world is a disaster zone.

Stupidity and/or Laziness

with 2 comments

The human inhabitants of our planet are Stupid and/or Lazy.

They whine and rant about everything.  They wait for someone else to do something.  If they do something, it does not work but also causes more problems.

What they are doing is inflating their egos and creating false pride.  The planet’s inhabitants suffer from a total lack of maturity.  Our society has evolved technologically, but humankind has not evolved with it.

The answer is to start dealing only in reality and fact.

Fact:  A person may not be the most intelligent, but he can still select intelligent managers to direct the world.

Fact:  A person does not have to be doing everything, but he can do his fair share.

Reality:  A person can have his own opinions and beliefs, but he should not be enforcing his opinions and beliefs on others.

Reality:  A person can want anything he desires, but there is never be any guarantee that he will get anything he wants.

It is past time for the people of the world to grow up.  Change is necessary for growth and survival, but all change is not good change.

Does anyone want the world to survive?

THE ECONOMY

leave a comment »

The world’s economies are in trouble.  Countries are close to bankruptcy.  There are many people without jobs.  Health care is expensive or not available.  Consumer prices are continuously increasing.  The number of poor or have-nots is growing.

What is to be done?

Every politician, economist, blog writer or main stream media persona has a different idea about what should be done.  They all agree on one thing;  everybody else is wrong.  They almost got it right.  The reality is all of them are wrong; none of them have any idea on how to fix the economy.

All of them blame someone else:  the Democrats, the Republicans, special interest groups, the rich, business, and on and on.

Again, all of them are wrong.  In the end, the blame lies with all of them.  Since none of them know anything about economics, they should all just remain silent.

The economies can be fixed, but not by them.  It is time to find someone that really understands economics.

CHAOS

with one comment

CHAOS!

That is right, CHAOS.

Instead of Earth, our planet should be named CHAOS.

Everything and anything on our planet is in CHAOS.

It is not going to end; in fact it is going to get worse, much worse.

This is not doom and gloom reporting.  It is just the truth.  Forewarned is forearmed.  Time to get the message.  Just do not kill the messenger.

The neverending litany of bad news.

The divide between haves and havenots; more and more havenots, less and less haves.  Where will it end?  No haves and all havenots.

It is past time to return order to the planet CHAOS.

Can this be done?

Only if the people act, but they need to use judgment in their actions.  Everybody’s simple answer of taking from the rich to give to the poor will not work.  Keep taking and one day the former rich will be poor and then what do you do?

Does everyone want the socialism of Germany during the 1930’s?

Violence in the street, crime everywhere; no health care or education; no food or shelter.  Just living in the wild like it was thousands of years age, the return of the caveman.

Someone better take action, intelligent action with wisdom and judgment.

Already have my club and spear.

Blog Posts on WordPress

leave a comment »

Everyone should be a believer in free speech.  Free speech is a good.

Websites such as WordPress and Blogger enable free speech.

But there is something to remember; just because something is written, does not mean that it should be read.  The same for the spoken word, there is a lot of hot air out there.

Many writers seem to write just like people talking to themselves.

After sampling the posts on WordPress, this point is well proven.  Most of the posts are rant and/or whine.  There are no solutions posted.  What seem to be solutions, are really writers preaching their ideology.

The only reasons to read these posts are for entertainment or to see what will not work.

So, for readers, look for more meat and less fat.

Economic Downward Spiral Continues

with one comment

The United States’ credit rating was downgraded for the first time in history.

This is due to the continued uncertainty about the American economy.  The only true uncertainty is how fast will it sink.

This problem is not unique to the United States; it also affects many nations in Europe and other parts of the world.

Both political leaders and economists have no understanding of how the economy works.  All of them have theories.  No facts or rules.

What is to be done?

Simple.

–  Find someone who understands economics.  This eliminates anyone who has a degree in economics or held an elected office.  (See previous post)

–  Put that person in charge of all economic matters.  This includes government spending and taxation.

Being in charge means that the politicians no longer have any control of economic matters.

Will this work?  Of course not.  Why?

Everyone cannot always get what they want.  What will make the economy grow, provide jobs, and control prices will not please everyone.  So some people will be unhappy.  Also, politicians never relinquish control of anything.

Politicians are part of the problem, not part of the solution.

Prepared yourself for more economic bad news.
