    this is going to be my new blogsite for regular rants of mine.

    This hopefully will supplement my webpages.

    please, if you comment stay on subject. I am interested in feedback, especially real thoughtful feedback. if you don't agree with what i believe that's fine too, but argue about why you believe differently, if that's appropriate.

    and of course, this is for fun interest and for something to think about, not to offend anyone's ideas or beliefs.

What the Middle Class Really Is

Many people never studied politics or sociology so they have not idea the history of the words “Middle Class.” As Wikipedia says,or tries to say, Middle Class used to mean people who own a means of production, or a capital investment.

One of the secrets of being rich, or being independently wealthy, is to have capital that on it’s own makes money. So, if you have sheep, and the sheep continually make wool, then that is an income souce that continually creates income. Property is another example. Property is rented out and continually makes money for the owner/landlord.

This is why rich people get richer. You can try to work a lot and make enough money to get ahead, but that is like re-mowing the grass. If you own a prorperty that brings in $150 per month after you pay the mortgage, and you have sheep that you can sell the wool for $100 a month after the cost of feed, then you have multiplied your income, and you have not multiplied the number of hours worked.

This is the kind of thing that rich kids know growing up. Their parents give them capital as they are growing up and teach them what they have to do to manage it. So when wealthy kids go to college they already have a lot of experience managing a business, managing property, and managing people.

So, during the Middle Ages and the Industrial Revolution, there were a lot of people who owned Capital and/or owned a means of production, a factory, rental property, a farm, et. al. Eventually, these people were able to create enough wealth for themselves that they could challenge nobles, or the elitist of early America. These self-made men were heroes then, because people thought they represented the workers.

Banks are a good example of how this works because everything they own is an instrument of capital. They take it a step further though, they have a means of production and they invest money into it so that it will bring back more money, like in the Monopoly game.

Donald Trump is a good example of this. He buys property that either rents out for him, or otherwise creates wealth, like casinos. Most of the things he owns are creating income for him.

Rich people on the other hand, are like J.R. from Dallas, if the stock market takes a dive for a couple years, their income may go down, but they have an accumulation of wealth from other means that will not be affected. Rich people have the ability to buy diamonds and gold or property, or fossil fuels, or sugar; these kind of things never go down in value no matter what happens to the economy.

So, the Middle Class is really the Almost Richey Rich class. Mitt Romney is a little confused about the Middle Class, as seen in his definition, but I really don’t think anyone can be clear about who is still in the Middle Class.  In the Huffington Post article, Joe Biden derides Romney because the Democrats say they had the same definition, though I think they are similar not alike.

Who’s right about who the Middle Class is is not important to me. What is funny is that there are a lot of people who think because they make $50,000 – $150,000 a year and work at a regular 9 – 5 job, think they are part of the Middle Class. There are some people who think because their Household makes over $100,000 a year they are part of the Middle Class.

Management Ethics

in the beginning…. Management was the people who supervised the workers. at least thats the way i imagine it because the indurstrial revoloution was somewhat before my time.

today…. wow what a bunch of employee-screwers ! everyday i hear of something new and interpret it through management’s perception. it’s incredible that i can say i think my boss cares about us and how we are doing outside of our work-a-day duties. on the other hand he is a manager and he has duties in that capacity that affect how he can go about his daily objectives.

let me digress… my dad taught me by telling me stories of management decisions, and anecdotes of management meetings where they discussed legal ways of taking away everything from the employees and giving the decision making back to management.

today, i go to meetings where everyone shares their information from their job title’s perspective. there is a reason for the meetings, studies found that employee’s opinions are not just opinions, they are actually whole stories about what is going on in the company. another study found that when you have many people working on the same project, simply improving communication through email and cell phones does not entirely work; think of riding in a car and no one speaks for the first half of the ride, but then of a sudden you remember something that happened yesterday. meetings help the group communicate more.

but management was the group who started the discussion of a meeting of these “leaders with titles”. why? at least 2 reasons, and you could find more:

1. it makes those leaders feel like they have input into the organization, their opinion counts, they are an invaluable part of the company. each leader feels like they are expected to say something because they are somebody, so they feel confident and self-important.

2. over time, things do not happen the way that policy dictates they are supposed to happen. also, people bend or break the rules. in a relaxed environment where these leaders feel they are an instrument of management, instead of an adjunct employee, they are willing to tell the full story, in the spirit that they are improving the quality of their company.

both are similar to the way Hitler did things. Hitler brought people into his Army or the Jr. Army (for younger folks), and made them feel like they belonged, and important to him,  so they would rat out their parents or cousins. he would make them feel like their ideas were important to him, even giving them salutorious advancements, so they could improve his organization, and so they would feel proud and obligated when it came time that they had to kill their father or sister or a friend who was a Jew.

we see more and more of these types of behaviors of management everyday. think of the grievance forms they give to customers, which are not there for their complaining antics, they are there so they can feel like they made an impression and were able to speak their piece.

they used to have a place where employees could make comments, and they would take the comments and bring some employee representatives with them to a management meeting just to top off the experience. those employees would report back to the other employees what had happened and how great they thought they had done in the meeting. of course, if things didn’t turn out right, the employees would blame the representative who went to the meeting ! how beautiful is that !

most businesses have the policy that you are not allowed to discuss salary. among some big businesses this is just considered silly ! big for-profit companies want you to know how much you could be making if you worked harder and did more for the company. many salaries you can find online of certain education-centered positions. when management or businesses in general, realized that they could combat wages by de-organizing the unions and telling the employees to keep it a secret, they did.

my former boss used to tell new guys, “you’re getting paid more than we’re really allowed to start you at, so don’t go telling everybody how much you make.” – and gave that guy .50 cents less than everyone else starting out.

this doesn’t just apply to pay, but also to health, dental, legal, life, and vision insurance, and other benefits.

so, be on your watchful eye and you might spy one of these tactics used by management to make you feel better about your job !


H1N1

this is the AIDS virus, microscopic view

this is the AIDS virus, microscopic view


on my web page i have an article about how AIDS was invented by the government to target certain populations of people in the U.S. with all the new suspicious things happening in government, there are lots of new conspiracy theories hopping around. not about the New World Order, about our government and how they operate.

there has always been the conspiracy running around that the government is in league with affluent people to take over the country. AIDS was not the first disease that was allowed to run rampant in our country. its obvious that AIDS has been let to run rampant a few more years so drug companies can make their money pretending to be keeping it at bay.

Cancer and Alzheimer’s are both diseases that people have said were bred to bring about the demise of certain populations. Alzheimer’s was said to be used by the rich to bring down people who had no prior health problems. anyone could just wake up one day and have it, and there was no way of testing to see what had suddenly brought it on.

now, of course, H1n1. most people don’t realize that there are other swine flu’s, H1N2, H1N3, H1N5 – this is not something new. why no vaccine for them? duh, money. tip of iceburg tip: what do you think H2N5 is? H3N7? there are at least 7 types of avian flu. there’s a couple of duck flu and a blue teal. yeeeeeeeeee haaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwww ! there all over the place ! .

Wait ! why all of a sudden after 15 different flu findings are we finding out about H1N1? because the government first of all wants to scare you into buying the $25 vaccine. a lot of people will get it for free but many will have their insurance companies pay for it.

of course, i’m not getting the vaccine. i’m not as smart as y’all. when the virus comes you all will have had the vaccine and you will just feel a minor pang and then it will go away, whimpering. my body will have to adapt to the disease, figure out what it is and how to recognize it in the body, and then finally, my body will kick its tiny flu butt. i won’t miss any work, but i still might be scared into getting the vaccine, like you guys. luckily, i probably won’t. i’m only 36, so it should be easy for me to come on through a flu. you all on the other hand, you all are not as healthy as me, so you had better get that H1N1 vaccine.

now, when H1N13 comes along, my body will adjust. it had to identify H1N1 on its own, (and H3N7, that avian thing), so my body gets it. your body though, well, for your sake i hope that vaccine comes quicker for y’all than the 4 months you had to wait on the piggy flu virus pseudo-vaccine. because i really don’t want to see y’all suffer, really i don’t.

Oh ! i almost forgot to tell you………. new rumor they just made up to scare y’all and keep me in my place, i suppose.

H1N1 is four different flu viruses mixed together. piggy flu, duck, avian, and violent flu. i understand how duck flu kind of jumped the fence and got into a human flu form. i understand how avian flu spread from fertilizer into human flu form. i understand how violent flu became spread by killer bees into human form and became human flu form. really. and i understand how piggy’s were really close with humans in England somewhere and that virus got spread into human form.
.

i am a little confused. Let me tell you, i ignore, usually, all those rumors about government involvement. i realize science is complicated. but how did avian flu in human form, mix with violent flu in human form, and mix with duck flu in human form, and mix with swine flu in human form without help from human intervention?

.

i just think of cancer, AIDS, Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder from Iraq, Sand Fleas from Kuwait, avian flu, swine flu, what’s the government going to cook up next? their on a roll ! their HOT ZONE, i mean HOT ! .
