A man wakes up in the middle of nowhere. He has no money, he doesn’t know where he is and there is absolutely nothing around him, except for a small diner. The man walks towards the diner, where a sign reads “eat all you want, your grandchildren will pay”.
The man walks in, eats like there is no tomorrow and, when he is done, a waitress walks up to him and gives him the bill. “Wait, I read the rules carefully.” says the man.”I know,” replies the waitress “this is your grandfather’s bill.”
An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama’s socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.
The professor then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama’s plan”.. All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A…. (substituting grades for dollars – something closer to home and more readily understood by all).After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.
The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F. As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.
Once upon a time in a village, a man appeared and announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for 10 $ .The villagers seeing that there were many monkeys around, went out to the forest and started catching them .The man bought thousands at 10 $ and as supply started to diminish, the villagers stopped their effort .
He further announced that he would now buy at 20 $ . This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again . Soon the supply diminished even further and people started going back to their farms . The offer rate increased to 25 $ and the supply of monkeys became so little that it was an effort to even see a monkey, let alone catch it! The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at 50 $! However, since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would now buy on behalf of him . In the absence of the man, the assistant told the villagers .
Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man has collected . I will sell them to you at 35 $ and when the man returns from the city, you can sell it to him for 50 $ . ‘ The villagers squeezed up with all their savings and bought all the monkeys . Then they never saw the man nor his assistant, only monkeys everywhere !
We have a real problem. Politicians who are bought with money only follow orders. Every day the national debt increases. Trillions of dollars are being extracted from this country through taxes or banks and trade. No one is stepping up to come up with a permanent solution they just keep passing the buck. Raising the spending limit just puts a band-aid on the problem and gives it enough time for the next guy to deal with. Your congress is incapable of making legislation on trading,banking,healthcare and taxes. Any great ideas will be thrown out due to the fear of a politician getting cut off by his or her sponsors.
Usually in the past presidents have stepped up to the plate and pulled us out of wars and economic problems. During the civil war we had Lincoln in WWII we had Teddy Roosevelt who bypassed the bought congress and lifted this country out of the shit hole it was in. That is what we need a president who is not in bed with mega banks who run our country. We need to have a president who will not bow down to corporate money.
The last time we had a president with balls got he assassinated and that is sad but what if we had a president who wasn’t a big pussy or a puppet or a pussy puppet he would take back control of our money. Fall back to money backed by gold and print our own money not money owned by the Federal Reserve. Start loaning money to back small business change trading laws enhance tax laws and cut excess spending on wars fought for Exxon and big oil companies no more blood for oil.
Perhaps I am taking crazy pills but until control is reestablished by our government laws and the economy will come from those who handle our money. Big corporations and big banks don’t give a fuck about who starves to death or gets injured they just care about profit plain and simple gotta love our capitalist society.
