The High Horse Mule Kicks the White Rabbit

Alice in Wonderland was on TV last night.

Am I talking about politics?

No.

That’s on every night.

Well that’s fare for thought.

Ever thought about how many case workers and social workers would be put out of work if welfare were eliminated? They would end up needing assistance. My experiences with them 30 years ago convinces me that they get quickly jaded and aren’t worth helping. I remember as a college student hearing about how social workers wanted to help people. Theory and practice are very different.

If being given money makes people lazy why aren’t rich people’s kids all devoid of ambition? Why would anybody work once they had accumulated enough wealth for an easy life? CEO’s would retire after their first million dollar bonus.

Money isn’t everything. Some people actually care about what they do. It’s not about getting the lowest price. It’s not about the greatest profit margin.

It’s about doing something you CARE about. With care comes quality. You might pay more, but it’s worth more.

Who’s on welfare? What is welfare? http://www.cheatsheet.com/personal-finance/whos-on-welfare-9-shocking-stats-about-public-assistance.html/?ref=YF&yptr=yahoo

You really want to measure who benefits from welfare you need to include all the social workers. You might as well include the cost of private prisons. And the cost of anybody convicted of economic crimes – if it’s an economic crime they might not have done it if they didn’t want the money. YEAH WANT THE MONEY!!! Don’t blame them for greed if you don’t blame others for greed through legal channels. The cost of protecting yourself from the greed of others can be in the form of welfare, extortion, or theft. Do you spend a hundred bucks a day to pay a security guard to stop shoplifters from stealing a hundred bucks a week? Is the only reason for giving a job to the guard the existence of the shoplifter? And please don’t quibble the dollar amounts. Do you really think it’s a question of laziness? Do you want ambitious crooks? Walter White on steroids as well as meth?

Greed is NOT good.
Just a Wild rant.
I can’t end that way
