11 Rules Of Life

Paraphrased from an op-ed by Charles J. Sykes, author of "Dumbing Down Our Kids: Why American Children Feel Good about Themselves, but Can't Read, Write, or Add."

RULE 1......Life is not fair; get used to it.

RULE 2......The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

RULE 3......You will NOT make 40 thousand dollars a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice president with a car phone, until you EARN both.

RULE 4......If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. He doesn't have tenure.

RULE 5......Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping; they called it opportunity.

RULE 6......If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

RULE 7......Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you are. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parents' generation, try "delousing" the closet in your own room.

RULE 8......Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life has not. In some schools they have abolished failing grades; they'll give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

RULE 9......Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summer off and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on your own time.

RULE 10.....Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

RULE 11.....Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.

Some great advise in these rules!

Groundhog Day And
State-Of-The-Union Address
Are On Same Day In 2012

This tidbit of information comes to us from Ronald VanLandingham on Facebook

These two days being the same is an ironic juxtaposition of events.

One involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to an insignificant creature of little intelligence for prognostication.

The other involves a groundhog.

I love it!

Obama Is All About Money

Most of it from Wall Street.

History Repeats - As Usual

During the great depression there were repeated upticks in the economic data.

Every time this happened, Democrats insisted the continued wasting of money in stimulus and government programs was finally paying off. It never sustained during the great depression. It will not sustain now.

Tomorrow the jobs data will indicate a small upswing in jobs and a tiny drop in unemployment. Barack Obama has already seen the data and without it even being announced is proclaiming the good times are returning. This in the face of the Federal Reserve and all national banks around the world flooding money to prop up the data just as they did in 2008. You must remember, there is nothing that has been done to create that money except print it.

Inflation, real inflation in areas such as food, continues to inch up as it always does when government prints money. There is deflation in housing and other niche areas of the economy that temporarily hides this problem. However it is only a matter of time before inflation destroys the earning power of everyone not in government and prices get out of control. Since only government can index itself to inflation by laws, private workers are the people who always get screwed.

Prepare yourself.
