It's A Rich Man's World

It's getting harder and harder to earn a decent buck when so few control so much. It's been said, too many people are spending their time and effort doing work instead of making actual money. At this point in time we probably have more investors living off the backs of laborers then any time in history.

We know the turnover in these kinds of businesses are huge. How do you keep a manager? Convince him to buy a franchise. Then they ain't going nowhere. Can't be fun being sandwiched between employee cost and those they must pay for equipment, supplies and dictated to what their prices they're allowed to charge by their corporate overlords.

In short, the rich get richer while the poor get poorer. This ever widening gap is becoming unsustainable. Seems there's little we can do about it. Doesn't look like we can depend on government on either side of the aisle to do anything about it. In fact it may played a part in creating this situation we finnd ourselves in.

I Remember A Time...


* Telephones didn't need to be updated every month.
* A toll booth collector would make change & provide direction information
* We had the same postal delivery carrier everyday
* The same grocery & bank cashier was there next week
* Cars weren't entertainment and communication centers
* Cops & people weren't considered adversaries
* Saturday mornings TV was for kids
* Door to door callers weren't scam artists
* Teachers were respected
* Attendants pumped gas, checked the oil, tire pressure, washed the windshield and gave green stamps to boot!

Who says Joe Biden isn't clear thinking and has trouble speaking?

Tips To Help Secure Your Wi-Fi


Not only is it important to install the latest firmware. Create a strong password. But it can also be useful to create a name for your network which might put some people off from being inclined to use it such as...

On the other hand you may want to steer a family member in the right direction.

A few years ago (when the college boys lived next door) they labeled theirs "MrDelish". Personally I prefer to label mine "ERROR: Not Found".

Arizona's Old/New Abortion Ban

The history of Arizona’s Civil War-era abortion ban
"The Republican-controlled Arizona House has repeatedly refused to take up a measure to repeal a Civil War-era state law that amounts to a near-total ban on abortion following an Arizona Supreme Court ruling earlier this month that the law can be enforced.

The state's near-total ban, which predates Arizona's statehood, permits abortions only for saving the woman's life and provides no exceptions for rape or incest"

Is this really what we want to do. Go dig through every piece of legislation for the past 160 years nitpicking till we come across something we can hang on somebody. Do you have any idea how many tens of thousands of laws exist that we never undone? We make laws but seldom if ever eliminate them no matter how stupid they sound now.

Can you imagine..

Yes we keep on creating new laws without ever considering how many of these pile up over time. Thus making almost everything unlawful if legal beagles are able to dig one up against someone for just about any reason. Arizona must be proud of itself coming up with this historically ancient piece of crap. Shame on them!.

Took A Video Of Myself During The Eclipse

The rapture happened this morning.
So, if you're reading this, well, I have some bad news for you...

I was born in 1948 after this took place. As a boomer very little of this was taught to us in school. I, like probably everyone else, knew little of this. I found it rather shocking to learn how close we came to losing our democracy. Perhaps it's time every person born after 1948 should be shown this video in schools and elsewhere.

Many of the parallels in politics today as then are quite concerning. Sometimes history repeats itself. Are we at similar crossroads once again?

The United States has come close to falling apart several times throughout our history. Let us not experience it's collapse with today's extreme differences in party beliefs. We seen it happen in other countries like China, Russia and several other countries with their prior governments. Dozens of others are going through this on this very day. There's no guarantees United States be an exception. Let this serve as a danger signal for what fate could await us if things don't turn out well as they did in the past.

Maybe I've not made myself clear enough

See the parallels?

Either Were Born With Talent Or Not

7-Year-Old Boy Playing A Street Piano

I wasted 6 years on professional organ lessons and another 20 trying on my own. It took me that long to realize my brain is simply not wired that way. Quite frustrating really.

At least I learned one lesson. Not matter how strong one may hold onto a aspiration, it's not going always happen. Sometimes it's just better to detach rather then stress oneself out over a burning desire. That applies to so many other things in this life as well.

LV Warehouse Boom Featured On 'CBS Sunday Morning' In April 2022

Many people see area growth a good thing. Not I. Liked the Lehigh Valley just fine the way it was in the 60's.
