Your Politicians are Weenies
You voted for them and you knew they were scumbags. What were you thinking?In a true democracy, there are no politicians.This is a holdover from the mid 1700s when word traveled by horseback. Politicians can’t control their kids so they want exercise their influence on you.Anyway, this story isn’t about politics; It’s about Bill the teacher.
Bill lives in the same cow town as I. Bill graduated from college, a little left leaning, scientifically literate, and highly motivated school teacher who is losing his passion for the trade. He is giving up because the local political electorate is micro managing the classroom.When he leaves, who will teach our children about ideas?Why do we allow politicians without teaching credentials to dictate the agenda?
Your children are not monkeys and this isn’t a religious game. Your children are our economic future and not teaching them everything is a lost opportunity. Incorporate your morals but do so at home.The concepts of Newton, Galileo, Archimedes, Euclid … await.A passionate teacher is an huge asset.Let-em have some freedom.
Ok Dear Reader, …. If you have made it down this far, you must be a glutton for punishment.
The difference between premium fabrics and the PVC tarpaulin fabric is endurance cycles as well as strain energy under the curve. The amount of energy accepted to failure by the premium fabrics is on an order of 5 magnitudes that of PVC fabric. One asks the question: Then why do the Chinese make boats from PVC fabric? The answer is that most consumers buy on a first cost analysis. They don’t have the skills or the forethought to peer down the road 20 to 30 years. A high quality fabric will hold air and perform in service for 20 to 30 years. Your choice.
Your Politician is a dedicated individual whose purpose is to exercise your wishes buffered with the wishes of millions of other constituents into one cohesive voice that is proportional to the democratic whole.
The problem is the buffering process. For example: You tell your politician that you need a road paved. He hears that there is a great need for a tunnel which by coincidence has a road buried somewhere in it. The lobbyists assure said politician is correctly interpreting the information because no one could ever only need just a road. The publicist assures said politician will surely get re-elected because the outcome is exactly what the constituents needed. The road is an important road with no simple fix. The consultants assure the politician that they have a solution in concept and that modest fees would render the concept into working drawings. The venture capitalists assure the politician that agreements can be exercised to pay for the tunnel with minimal initial costs leveraged against land and material title.
Unfortunately, this is how the system operates. The gentleman needing the road paved was for the most part silenced in a sea of patronage. This concept is not unique to the USA. It rears its face in the Arab Spring, Kiev, New Jersey, Portland, Seattle and ….wherever. Your politician has to make enough money in his/her four year limited term to pay for their retirement obligations. Please dear taxpayer, deny them that opportunity.
Some folks have asked,” How do we make our raft frames so inexpensively?” The answer is: “We use slaves”.And to be politically correct, we use monkey slaves since they don’t seem to have any organized group objecting to their exploitation.Throw them a banana once in awhile and they produce whatever you want out of them.
Monkey slaves, properly engaged, gain a feeling of self worth when confronted with a new RowFrame chassis. They set about diligently cutting all the parts and machining all the fittings.Whalla, a few hours later, they are test driving the RowFrame on a local river.An engaged monkey is a happy productive monkey filled with pride and a zest for monkeydom.
Unproductive monkeys, left to their own devices sit around throwing feces at each other, collecting welfare, smoking pot, as well as a host of other deleterious activities. You dear reader, having invested the time in reading this rag (and wasting time I might infer), could consider this a metaphor for life, or perhaps not.
Three P or PPPA high yielding investment vehicle originally dreamed up by the Gold Man.
Once upon a time in a land far away the oligarchs got together and figured out a back door to the public treasury. The concept was pretty simple, demanded weary short sighted taxpayers, state sanctioned business enterprises, a low interest rate climate and a willingness to aggregate huge sums of venture capital funds to pull of the squeeze.
I call this the Perpetual Pork Partnership.The Perpetual stems from the duration of the paper.This is a multi generational enterprise.The Pork comes from the high rate of yield going into investor’s hands.The Partnership comes from government complicity in the venture.
In the near future, you will be asked at the ballot box to participate is a sales tax hike. The percentage from any outward perspective will be small, perhaps half of a percentage point.Keep in mind that half of a point on a $75B material economy is $375M.The immediate need is debatably $500M over the next ten years or so, benefiting mainly the populace portion of the state.Naturally the burden will spread to the rural areas, sort of an inverted share the wealth scenario.
Your politicians will tell you the most efficient way to accommodate growth is to herd the humans into a corral and tax them into submission. This is one such attempt.
The flip side of the coin is a motor fuel usage tax. Perhaps an additional 22 cents atop a like amount mandated in the late 1980s could be harnessed to build out the roadway infrastructure.This is the pay as you play concept and places the burden upon those who consume the motor fuel.Contrary to a sales tax, those who don’t consume motor fuels do not pay the tax, at least that’s how it gos…. in theory….. Once upon a time in a land far away.
Uppity Womenfolk _əpədē wiminˌfōk
A little more than 3 centuries have passed since Salem Witch Trials. For those unfamiliar with the event, the trials were a way of quieting uppity women of the day.The consequence of conviction was to be burned at the stake. The phenomena was to selectively quiet normally aggressive womenfolk since those that bred were the ones that survived the ordeal. This was the 17th century, Me TooMovement. In summary a negative effect of the Puritans on our society….other than the Republican Party.
The absence of uppity womenfolk for the last 300 years resulted in a dysfunctional polite society where women sat around, darned socks and quilted bedding. With the unrecognized potential being incalculable, modern society could have achieved greatness on the order of the Phoenicians or Romans.No….but society chose the path of quiescence where uppity women folk were none.
