Boy we are spoiled aren't we? I mean we are spoiled as individuals, corporate, government, about any way you want to look at it.

I caught this story on USA Today this morning about a poor guy who lost his big job and a now he had to take a $95,000 "gig" job to build his resume and support his habit of spending.

People have no idea what poor is, do they? I wonder if the poor really understand? The interpretation of poor has really changed since I was a child.

There are so many programs and promotions and whatever people in the states really don't suffer that much. We want more and we want what used to be but it isn't there anymore and some people are just in a tizzy.

The guy lost his $400,000 job because his employer lended money to people who couldn't pay it. Am I wrong on this? Did he satsify his employer or do what was right by not lending money to people who couldn't pay it back?

Our country is really in disorder. We all want to act like it is alright but you and I know it isn't and no one wants to be the first and rock the boat.

How do you change a child when they are spoiled? You catch them the first time or two they want their way and keep working on that behavior.

This has been going on now for decades and no one has punished the spoiled child.

This isn't going to change because no one wants to make the change. It hurts too much to make the change.

It is going to hurt a whole lot more when we have to make that change.

  1. It will be a much meaner world during the next "adjustment" than it was in the 30's. Today, the percentage of practicing (as opposed to pretending) Christians is much lower.

  2. Truly spoiled Ed. No doubt 95,000 a year is a big step down from 400,000 but really, who needs that much money anyway? It can't buy happiness, maybe a certain degree of security is all.

  3. I really appreciate and respect your comments.

    I wish more would express their comments.
