  • My Blog

    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.


I don’t understand people

Obviously, I understand some people, you know – the ones who think like me.

What is it with people and their illogical ideas ? Some of us have the right idea. Then other people, well they just want to do things another way. The wrong way.

Some people just say things and you don’t argue with them. You can’t. They wouldn’t believe you anyway.

Guy says, “My f^%$#n case manager told me to come down here.”
“Sir, you can’t cuss in our lobby.”
“You’re the only one who has a problem with my language.”
“Sir, I’m the only one here right now. But I don’t have to put up with your language.”
“Well I don’t have to put up with you.”
“That’s absolutely correct Sir, see you later. ”
“What? You’re making me leave?”
“If you don’t want to stop cursing that’s fine, but you can’t stay in our lobby. Those are the rules.”
“I’m here to do an application to live here. You have to let me stay. This is business !”
“If you stop cursing then you can stay and do an application.”
“Oh, F@#& this man ! You don’t want to help me that’s fine. “

Some people just don’t understand.

A guy tries to get a deal on a cell phone, and can’t. He is signing a new 2 year contract, so he tries to get 25% off the accessories. The agent tells him they can’t do that, they have already broken the rules letting him upgrade a day before they were supposed to let him upgrade. So, he walks out of the store.

I told my little sister, figure out what you want to do, figure out how to do it, and do it ! Don’t play around, make excuses, procrastinate, or let other people give you an excuse. But, on the other hand, you have to follow certain rules.

It has always amazed me when people walk into a store and start a conversation with the person behind the counter. They start some kind of questioning and when they get a “NO” answer, they want to argue or raise their voices. Sometimes they even threaten and wave their fists around.

To what end ? What positive outcome could that possibly have ? Any normal situation and you can expect the little nice person behind the counter, who wants no trouble anyway, is going to call the cops, maybe, or his manager.

These are the idiots you here riding the bus complaining, “I lost my car, now i gotta ride this bus that sucks. I got kicked out of Wally Mart for cussing at the girl at the Return stand. She was dumb !”

And people listen to me and they say that it seems I do understand; it’s those idiots that don’t understand.


In customer service we talk to people who will ask you a question and you tell them it has to be either black or white. They say, “I want red.” You can’t enter the program if you have red, only black or white. “I want red, only red.” And we just look at them like they are from another planet because they have no idea. They are trying to get into our program, but they are literally talking their way out of our program.

Unbelievable !

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 !

Bildeburg Group

omg !

This thing with the Bindenburg/Bildeburgs, and the Tri-lateral Commission. that dang Dan Brown ! if all he does is start conversations, then that is still great. everyone was talking about the Illuminati, now EVERYONE is talking about them. more stuff coming to the suface now. i could ever remember who those people were now it’s posted on the net, Rothschild, Rockefeller, Warburg. whether the stuff you read on the internet is true or not. should write my name up there beside theirs, too ? who’s to say Rockefeller and them don’t want their names publisized as the most powerful families on Earth.

secondarily, has anyone heard of ‘Vampire 2000’ ? I think you can still find it on the internet. “Operation Vampire Killer 2000” Bush jr and Bush sr supposedly were part of it and Clinton. supposedly Obama is a member of the Bildeburg Group which is supposed to be another sub-group of the Tri-Lateral Commission. from the insinuations, the Tri-Lateral commission is the families of the Rothschild, Rockefeller, and Warburgs.

Anyway, supposedly, these groups are trying through war and attrition to bring certain countries together through similar coinage, religion and government. somebody rich decided they wanted to control everything. Most people think they want to impose their will and bring everyone to their religion, their government, or their party, or coinage. To some extent, that’s true, but you have to think in terms of which religion, government and coinage, meets their goals the best and fastest.

In terms of religion, the best thing to do is get rid of some and encourage the passive pacifist religions, so that in the end their is a single religion that is docile. Beautiful !, if you are a warlord, or in the ruling class.

The monetary system should be somthing that manages how money is spent as well as attaches the money to the person. of course, this means implanted id tag or debit card. the debit card is just a step away from success for these warlords.

in order to subdue the populace politically, you have to create a new political system where the poor think they are just as rich as the rich, but the warlords couldn’t actually let them be rich. a Socialist system promotes all the poor people having the necessities of life and a bid on the finer things in life. so, you need a hybrid in order for socialism to really work with the lower classes to bring them to where they want to be socially and economically. of course, it can’t be pure socialism, because we will allow the rich to do whatever they want. but our government today is almost there, isn’t it? yea, almost there.

of course, when people have their basic needs met, ala the ‘Basic Needs Pyramid’, then they will be tired happy and complacent. those needs being food, shelter, security, and emotional. once those basic needs are met, a lot of people will think they are happy even if they are really not doing anything with the rest of their lives. like the Matrix.

in the long run, the idea would be that everyone is controlled through religion or government, money or avarice, and united through those things as well. once the people are united and similar, they are easier to classify control and the world works more like a beehive. Rich powerful people like the idea of worker bees, working for their benefit.
