Watch the overall nature of prices these next few months. There appears to be some unprecedented economic growth going on. This usually means a counter balance will definitely ensue. Those with excessive greed want it all. The problem is not too little, the problem is too much.

I read in this morning's paper where another soldier received the Purple Heart for getting wounded in action. Christ, how long is this war going to go on? A good soldier might nail five of the enemy before a sharpshooter nails him. What is the point? In WWI on special occasions like Christmas, the British and German soldiers sat in the trenches together, smoked cigarettes, drank beer or schnapps, and played cards. Wouldn't it just be easier to forget the guns, and instead drink beer and play cards together? What's the use of war when you can have life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and peace? Don't forget the pizza!
How long is Big Brother and the Behavioralists gonna dictate and control everyone's heads? Shut up and behave or you'll get a spankin'! Looks like we gotta behave or here come the Nukes. Isn't Big Brother important enough? Just wait until Big Brother gets a taste of the Mother of all Natures!
I can tell you exactly what the problem in this country is right now. The machinery of production has failed. We need to get out of three or four foreign wars and pay attention to the home front. On the home front top management isn't paying attention to its bottom line workers, and has fired its middle managers who can deliver feedback to get the machinery running in smooth order again. The education system has failed too. It threw out the reasonableness standard with its emphasis on technology and meeting production quotas, when most of the work is actually quite mundane and routine maintenance. Or was I born yesterday?
I have a theory about how things equal out when profits and power get too great. Now, the Law of Hell is "the more you have, the more you want." So those on top have just about everything, and they want still more. Well, profits just keep roaring in and somebody gets careless, or a valve sticks, or some damned thing or another, and it's ass over teakettle. I believe the Good Lord is behind it, as the Great Equalizer. Then everybody gets to wash rocks, or some mundane thing, to make a living. I don't think the Good Lord believes in progress, particularly when it increases the profit margin of those in power and control. "When you're up against a bruiser and you're getting knocked about, GRIN!"
The trees spend all of their lives relaxing. Maybe we need to take a lesson. If we relax more, we tear up the environment less.
If there's one thing I've seen here in the last 35 years, its a slough of high level executives from governors, to mayors, to fire management bosses, to industry executives who place an extremely high value on being seen as important. They place importance above all other values. If you wanna feel important, come to Alaska and assume the position!
Have you ever wondered why everything is so one sided these days? It's because the behavioralist management sits on its throne and runs things. There's nothing to do but park ones self on ones butt and be patient until management burns itself out and lets us all have our lives back. Time to take a nap.
You can easily tell that Big Oil, Big Centralized Government, and Big Industry have great power and wealth and eat something like steak and lobster every meal, while the helpless little guy at the bottom eats garbage for breakfast and has little energy to do a day's work. The primary reason the the Original System is decentralized is to give everyone an even break. If you cannot respect the little guy, can you enjoy your meal? You'll find that incentive in this world actually comes from the little guy at the bottom, if he can find the Spirit to live. Those on top have to live with their guilt, and their excuses for failure to share. How about finding a little Good Faith.
I'm a burned out, old fart with loads of experience fighting forest fires in Alaska. Please get this message to B.L.M., Fairbanks District Office. I fought forest fires all over Alaska as well as Fairbanks in the mid-1970's. I have a few pointers for you.Read More »from Let's Put the Fire Out!
When I did the job, the idea was to initial attack every fire while it was small. The idea was to catch it before it went over the hill. We were successful about 100% of the time on every one we manned.
The "new management" approach has a different idea. Now they let fires burn, as they "monitor" them. It doesn't take long before the fire goes over the hill and smokes in the whole valley. Then, they back up to a natural drainage and deliberately set fire to the whole region to stop the head of a fire. In my day we never set backfires, period. If you direct attack a small fire, chances are, the air is in the process of cooling it already, so much of the work is already done. But if you backfire, you have a 100% hot line, which takes
