Fair Share

by on Nov.24, 2014, under Truisms, Uncategorized

An argument for a sales tax on internet purchases is “the government needs/deserves its fair share.” Horse pucky. Outside of very limited, actually helpful, things government has done to support commerce (generally under the hard infrastructure category), there’s no argument that government deserves anything from commerce. Commerce is just another source of money for the government to spend wherever it wants.

Regrets at the End

by on Nov.14, 2014, under Uncategorized

It’s hard to predict what you’re going to really care about as you approach death’s door. Here are the five most common regrets folks within weeks of dying revealed to one nurse. Perhaps knowing about these will help you minimize your regrets at the end.

1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
2. I wish I didn’t work so hard.
3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.

From “Nurse reveals the top 5 regrets people make on their deathbed“.

Being “Stupid”?

by on Nov.14, 2014, under Uncategorized

If you’re misled, are you stupid? No. If you let yourself be misled by the same people again and again, are you being stupid? Yes.

Well… I’m not a fan of the word stupid, but it does approach the right idea. Maybe irrational would be a better word. Or, some say the definition of insanity is to repeat the same action expecting a different result. That’s closer.

At some point, you’ve got to wake up and smell the coffee.

If a law is written and/or approved by people exempt from that law, whether outright or by practicality, we’re screwed.

How did Obamacare get passed?

by on Nov.11, 2014, under Uncategorized

What is it, 2700 pages? 27,000 pages? Does it matter which if it’s thousands? “This is urgent, we can’t take time to read it first.”

According to one of the architects of Obamacare, it counted on the stupidity of the American voter. Read The Blaze article below. You may or may not like The Blaze, but quotes are quotes. The architect frames himself.

“Obama” Recovery

by on Nov.11, 2014, under Uncategorized

To whom/what do we owe however much recovery there’s been?

Here’s one of my votes: the $248 billion consumers have saved due to domestic oil production by fracking.

The Biggest (and the Worst) Big Business

by on Nov.04, 2014, under Uncategorized

The biggest (and the worst) big business is Big Government. How people can despise big business and love big government astounds me. Give me big business any day. I can choose not to do business with any big business I want. Try choosing not to pay taxes or follow outrageous regulations or get a building permit. Try not paying a parking ticket.

Bottomline, I trust individuals. The larger the group gets from there, the less I trust it. Somehow large group dynamics causes otherwise normal people to lose their senses. And in the case of Big Government, far too much power is concentrated in far too few people.
