A Child Can Figure it Out
A father wanted to read a magazine but was being bothered
by his little girl. She wanted to know what the United States looked
like. Finally, he tore a sheet out of his new magazine on which
was printed the map of the country.
Tearing it into small pieces, he gave it to her and said,
“Go into the other room and see if you can put this together.”After a few minutes, she returned and handed him the map,
correctly fitted and taped together. The father was surprised and asked how she had finished so quickly…“Oh,’ she said, ‘on the other side of the paper is a picture of Jesus.
When I got all of Jesus back where He belonged,
Then our country just came together.” Happy Easter
Friedrich Nietzsche, one of the most progressive thinking and liberal philosophers once said, “Without music, life would be a mistake.” He also said, “That which does not kill us makes us stronger.” His most appropriate quote for today is “Sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth, because they don’t want their illusions destroyed.” Nietzsche
“A history of lies and illusions can rarely be replaced by promising a future of truths and facts.” Jeffress
Do you realize that if all 23 million unemployed in America today stood in a close, single file line, that it would reach from the northern most part of Alaska to the southern most tip of South America? (See sketch below representing 1/10,000 of the line.)
Do you realize that if we packed stacks of dollar bills in railroad box cars, completely full, that a train of continuous box cars would extend from New York City to Topeka, Kansas in order to carry our current national debt?
Do you realize that at the expected rate of expenditure by 2016, that each and everyone of those 23 million unemployed standing in line (mentioned above) wound have to carry a million dollars to match the estimated national debt just four years from now?
We need to make a correction. We need to fix this problem. We need to find ways to cut spending or our Nation and our way of life as we know it will deteriorate. That is a lot to realize. That will require a lot of fixing. That is something that you must require your elected leaders to realize and to fix. Please do it now.
Today, 04 September 2012, is a special day… a milestone. America’s national debt officially passed the “magic milestone,” the sixteen trillion dollar ($16,000,000,000,000) point today around 4 pm EDT. I say “magic” because it will take some “mighty magic” to get us out of this disaster. It won’t be the Republicans pushing the old lady over the cliff. It has been Obama, a non-negotiating, non-functional Senate and House of Representatives, and past Administrations who have gotten us into this mess and are pushing YOU over the cliff.
There are about 160 million potential tax payers in the USA. This year we may reach another milestone, where HALF of all household pay no federal income tax. That leaves 80 million tax payers, and that divided into $16 trillion means each of you who pays taxes has a $200,000 share of the national debt. For many of you, that is the largest debt you will owe, equal to or even larger than your mortgage.
Now America, don’t despair. We will probably never pay this debt off. We could if we stop spending more than we take in and reduce the “Dollar” value significantly, say by 50% or 75% of it’s current worth, and begin to reduce our debt with cheaper dollars. But that means BIG inflation. So, if you as a family, now earns, say for example, $100,000 per year, you will have to make twice or four times that much as the dollar goes down and inflation goes up. Good luck with that.
Until recently, Americans have always been a benevolent, proud people, and self-sufficient people for the most part. But now we have become a dependent people…a not so proud people anymore. We can not afford to be as benevolent any longer. It is not only unfair, but unrealistic to think that one half of the people can support the other half. It is also unfair not to have a system where everyone has access to reliable health care and a good education. The system has to be fixed so that a person can go to a clinic with bruised elbow and the cost will be less than $100, instead of going to the emergency room where it will cost $500 or more, just because she has no insurance. We do need a new realistic, reliable and affordable health care system, but let me tell you….OBAMACARE IS NOT IT. Have you even tried to read it? If you haven’t, you should.
If our national leaders will just work cooperatively and effectively to serve the real needs of the people, cut out what I call governmental “CRAP,” (Costly Repetitive Activities and Programs), and reduce “BUGS,” (Big Unnecessary Governmental Staffs), and work in YOUR best interest, not theirs, then we just may have a chance at getting America back on its feet. Vote for your Nation’s leaders as if your future and the futures of your children and grandchildren depend on their decisions and actions. They do!

Renault and Ford are designing a new car just for women. They are combining the Clio and the Taurus, and calling it the “Clitaurus.” It comes in pink, red or brown, handles well and provides a definitely stimulating ride. It is considered to be safe from male thieves because the average man won’t be able to find it, even if someone tells him where it is. And, even if he did find it, he wouldn’t know how to service it. It is the ideal women’s car and can provide years of excitement and happiness if treated well.
