Government is a necessity, like toilet paper. We need it to clean up the messes. Why can’t the government come up with a financial solution to the state of our miserable economy.
The wealthy will continue to devise ways to earn money whilst gouging the public. Our necessities will continue to fluctuate upward, like toilet paper. They would hike the prices up on toilet paper a lot faster, but they know they would get smeared. Gas? WELL? UM?
In case you haven’t noticed, everytime there is a national disaster, prices go up. If it doesn’t rain on the plain for a few days, there is a severe draught and therefore the price of produce must increase. The foul air will never get cleared, and the livestock, be it cattle or fowl will continue to starve because there are just too many of them. These animals are being forced to have sex, so the industry can make more money. Then they try to snowball us with “lean” meat, which is nothing more than starved livestock. When there is a surplus it doesn’t mean that we are prosperring, it simply means there is more greed and the prices are so high that the consumer couldn’t buy the product and now there is left over in the warehouse because it didn’t sell regardless if there is too much or just too pricey.
You want to end unemployment? I say bring the prices down. Stop trying for 200% profit. Let the consumer BUY BUY BUY! The lower the prices the more will be sold. Volume creates jobs. Jobs create more money. More money creates more buying power . More buying power creates more product. More product creates more jobs. Now for birth control? Stop having sex because you cannot afford an extra child. OR MAYBE NOT! Less people, less jobs are needed. Quality survives.
Either way, no matter which president is sitting in the oval office, the poor will get the short end of the stick. Only the poor with a little savvy or brutal threats will get anything; The rest will continue to suffer heatless winters, running out of snap benefits the third week of the month, and impossible rent payments, not to mention landlord neglect which has been a sore point for many centuries. Remember, “The poor will always be with us”. Only just so many people can be wealthy.
Try getting an increase in benefits or salary! HA! Everything else goes up except the income. The states are crying debt while the feds borrow from social security and give billions in foreign aid while the Usanians(Americans) who can’t hack it drop their tears to our soil. At least if you have kids there’s a better chance of getting attention than if you’re single. Educated or not, the poor get treated alike, except for those who threaten workers. Now that’s what I call equality!!!
As for President Barack Obama….He’s sick of listening to the railings of the rich and the complaints of the poor and is concentrating on the ever loving middle-class!
It’s a “gimmee” nation, gimme this, give me that. It’s about “gimmee”, not “givyee”. Perhaps it should switch places from gimmee to givyee. Why not? To give is a much higher honor. It stands proud. We salute generosity. So next time you want something from Grandma, give her something first before you “gimmee” her.
I have a great idea for the armed forces, which would give all the enlisted a better disposition all day long. Have the sound of tinkling bells wake them up, then upgrade to bells, and end with a gong for the heavy sleepers. If the enlisted is not out of bed by the time the gong sounds, he/she will have KP duty all day!!
Just milk as much happiness as possible from each and every day of your life.
If a company has an item that sells, don’t get greedy and up the prices. Instead, lower the prices and hike up your volume, increase your work force and reputation. Raising your prices will loose you customers.
When there is trouble amongst other nations and troops are brought to borders, may I suggest we send them a “Paint Ball Kit” and have them settle their differences with a “Paint Ball” war.
People are not government.
Government is people.
