Age Of Turmoil

leave a comment »

We have entered what we call the Age of Turmoil, a time that is marked by rapid change and fluctuating crises.

What’s happening right now is a major sea change: the game is being reset, and the rules are being rewritten.

Will Your Life Be Turned Upside Down?
Conversely, those who cling to their faith in the old system, desperately hoping for a return to the carefree days of the past, will have their lives turned upside down.

This is because all the major elements of the old system– our political process, our money and financial institutions, the job market, police forces, etc.– only function as long as the system is operating normally.

The old ways are NEVER going to return.  ACCEPT IT.

Everybody is clinging to the world as it WAS.  This is causing things to go downhill instead  of  improving.

Our blogs know about the new world.  Following them will improve your life and the world around you.

 

The facts no one wants to read.

No Concern for the Merits of the Issue

leave a comment »

It does not matter what the issue or problem is; bloggers, posters, commenters et al have no concern for the merits.

They whine and cry, rant and bash, express their envy, hate and jealousy; but they never consider the merits/facts.

No one gathers any facts, does any analysis or critical thinking or reaches a rational logical conclusion.

They write thousands of words to explain how they wish the world to be as if this is how it really is.

They are concerned only with the rights of those that believe the same as them.  No fairness for everybody, only fairness for their side.

With this kind of mentality, what kind of world will it be?

A very dis-functional one.

Poverty in America

leave a comment »

The United States spends almost $ 1 trillion a year fighting poverty and is failing drastically.

This is the infamous war of poverty.  Program on top of program to eliminate poverty in America.  The programs are not working.

Just another example of people thinking that the solution involves spending enough money.  Well, a trillion dollars each and every year sure qualifies as enough money.  So, spending more money on poverty programs is definitely not the answer.

To add insult to the mess, the poverty rate is not decreasing, but increasing.

It is certain the government is doing something wrong.

Does anyone really want to end poverty in the United States?

Probably not.

Why?

No poverty means some of the following:

-Fewer jobs for people involved in the poverty programs.

-No bragging rights or propaganda material for politicians.

-No hand outs for the freeloaders in poverty.

-No social functions to benefit the poor.

-Cutting government spending by almost $ 1 trillion a year would disrupt the government bureaucracy.

Poverty in America can be greatly reduced in the United States in a reelatively short period of time.  Just not the way the poor, politicians and economists think and definitely not the way they want.

Commenting on Blogs

leave a comment »

In response to a comment made on another blog, the responder accused this blogger of name-calling and bias.

This is totally untrue.

Our blogs and comments are about truth and fairness/justice/equality.  Most people will disagree with what we write.  Why?  Because we do not take sides nor do we have any ideology.

So, accusing us of bias and name-calling is really someone telling the truth about themselves.

Poverty in America

leave a comment »

The latest statistics report that the number of Americans living in poverty has increased to a record percentage.

The United States has always had a high poverty rate compared to other countries.  Even in comparatively good economic times, the poverty rate is still about 11%.

Why is the poverty rate so high?

Part is due to the state of the US economy.  Part of it is due to structure of the US economy.

Why is the US poverty rate higher than other developed countries?

Part of this is due to the differences in the statistical methodology to measure poverty in each country.  And, part is due the differences in the structures of each countries’ economies.

From the above, most people would say that the structure of the US country should be changed.

This is a snap judgment, also one that is incorrect.

But even if it was a correct, how should the structure be changed?

No one seems to know, but people keep wanting the United States to change to a socialist economy.

Socialism has never worked.  It will not work in the United States.  So forget about a socialist economy.

Additional information:  Approximately the same number of people are without health insurance in the United States.

This is not a poverty issue, but just another piece of the economic problem effecting both United States and the rest of the world.
