Are YOU civilized?

Backwards and Upside-down

"Modern" man does things backwards and upside-down. Education for example. Rather than teaching someone when they're ready to learn, we insist they learn when we're ready to teach. --L. Reichard White, June 16, 2012, 11:36:36

With protection like this, you need kevlar

One of the main repeating themes from U.S. Senators was, "We have to protect U.S. taxpayers from bailing out the banks again."

Morgan's Jamie Dimon testimony to the U.S. Senate Banking Committee (June 13, 2012)

Why use cash?

Cash is safer. To rob you of cash, the robber has to confront you face-to-face or break into your house. And these days, you may be armed. But he can rob you of cash alternatives (credit, bank deposits, etc.) electronically without you even being aware of it. Further, cyber thieves can rob you not only of everything you have, but, by running up debts, money you haven't even earned yet. --L. Reichard White, June 8, 2012, 13:26:24

Where do jobs come from?

"You're supposed to find jobs that need doing, not create them." --my 90 year-old next door neighbor, Jack, Feb. 2009

To understand is to forgive. --French proverb

Who Cares More?

Who's more likely to worry about a plane crashing, the pilot of the plane (who's life is on the line) and its owners (who's money is on the line) - - - or FAA bureaucrats in Washington D.C. with nothing on the line? --L. Reichard White, June 5, 2012, 09:07:27
