"He's a real nowhere man, sitting in a nowhere land, making all his nowhere plans, for nobody. Isn't he a bit like you and me." Lost in the middle of nowhere, that's where you find Heaven.

Due to social and economic paralysis, how many of you feel like I do, we've been flushed down the toilet?
The Fed just informed the American people that they can look forward to 50 per cent unemployment. We could finally get out of the foreign wars, just in time to fight a civil war. I know what the union-management wars are all about. When management says, "Let them eat cake", management means, "Let them eat dung!" Colleges can be no more than holding tanks to earn a glorified degree in cleaning toilets, or be a supervisor for those without degrees to clean toilets. Now, how about some meaningful jobs for all of us! If we're to avoid a nation wide union-management war, we'll have to get each polarized side to talk to one another. This is where the middle manager can fit in. The middle manager has to fit a square peg into a round hole, and do it without cross-pressure. The open and shut case of the computer just won't work. The middle manager has to hear it from either side and find a solution on a daily basis. I know, been there, done that. I lost my job too. So when the country is readyRead More »from Out of the Freakin' Fryin' Pan, Into the Fire!
Well, we lost Steve Jobs. He built up quite a fortune and had plenty of fame, didn't he. So he died of cancer at age 56 and lost it all. He's got plenty of tears and bitter regret he can't take it with him. He can't indulge in bodily pleasures, because he now has no body. And, all the way to Heaven, he has to do power withdrawal, because he can't get anywhere but maybe circle the Earth until he does it. Why he didn't give his massive holdings back to the people I don't know. Now everyone who surrounded him with favor get to squabble over the empire he left behind.Read More »from A Word to the Wealthy
This is a word to the wealthy. You can save the trouble of having to do one hell of a lot of power withdrawal if you divest yourself of your massive fortunes, and hence, can avoid all the withdrawal Steve Jobs has to do. You can do it in sickness and old age tediously, or you can help the poor avoid bankruptcy and malnutrition and get a blessing from the Good Lord upon your departure. You're not going to find any wealth in
Here's a concept which will bring down the overall level of prices, so that life is affordable again. Deliberately cut the cost of your product or service. People love a bargain. But this measure does more than that. If you slice your price, it puts less profit in your pocket, so you'll spend less elsewhere. You put a braking system on the overall level of prices. Others have to lower their prices to get you in the door. On the other hand, if you raise your prices, others do too, and this contributes to inflation. Inflation kills everyone except the filthy rich. Deflation gets your needs met. Remember when a soft ice cream cone cost 10 cents? You can bring every kid in the country back to life!
The top 200 people in this country have more wealth than 150 million Americans, combined. Who is obviously eating cake? We may be equal, all right, equally without.
The chasm between the rich and poor, the conservatives and liberals, management and union, the far right and far left, has grown very deep, hasn't it? It looks like everyone in this country is sitting on their butt, and scratching their heads what to do.
I have a solution. Hire the middle manager. The middle manager has the thankless job of stitching this country back together. Why? Because the top and bottom aren't talking to each other. How do you fit a square peg into a round hole?
That's the middle manager's job, to get the polarized sides to communicate and work together again. The middle manager can do this because he/she is in the middle of it all. The middle manager has to listen to each side b---- and find some common ground. The general idea is to reverse the polarizing tendency and get this country to cooperate and work together again.
If the Federal Government had a ghost of an idea what it was doing, it would encourage decentralization, so that the process of incentive can begin again. Instead, the government encourages the rich to computerize their profit margins, while the poor institutionalize their welfare bellies. All the wealthy are going to do is party hearty on their profits and overdose on rich food, rich drink, and street drugs like the Romans did. Why doesn't the government let people do something else with their lives, like engage in meaningful work and education? Does our government desire its people to fail? Looks like they've got a good start, doesn't it? Feds, lets get on the stick, and encourage people to use what they've got--their heads!
The newspaper said several jolts of coffee a day is good for older women's mental health--coffee prevents depression. Here's one that's just as good. Pet cockatiels prevent depression in older men. Mine wakes me up in the morning saying, "What's up Pretty Bird?" We sing to each other.
Let's size up the situation. Right now the rich are scrambling to protect their profits, the poor are facing tougher rules on what they can eat (if they can eat at all), and the middle class is hanging in there. If we can all pull off a "Gandhi", hee, hee, I'll bet we can knock down the wall Humpty Dumpty is squatting atop of. The goal is complete decentralization, or one person, one vote. Just ask yourself, "How much power would you like me to drain back into the ground, away from politicians' brains?"
