You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.
.....Abraham Lincoln, Okay Ronnie, I call you, let's see what you have cowboy.
Now for TODAY:
It is not available on Amazon.com or Target.com. That will take five days. I will offer the book for sale here on the blog as soon as I receive a shipment. That will be approx three weeks, if I miss the shipment here at Belmont.
Now we are on hold waiting for some reports to come in from tests taken during the physical.
It is a little drizzly here, some heavy rain. We were over to see Sonny again; he seems to be doing great. We have been over every day this week. Vickie took a short vacation and asked us to look in on him. He has a girl friend, Phyllis, who has been there every day also. She is still working but plans to retire soon. Sonny eats well and can walk a few steps. That is what he is going to have to do to get around at Vickie’s house. He is getting anxious to get out of a hospital environment. He has been in this situation since we came home in March. Practically four months in a hospital bed. That means we have been practically stationary for the same length of time. We should have moved at least seven or eight times. Ha!
Did you see where old Woody got snow? http://www.amazon.com/ Snow in June! Rain probably didn’t get snow and she is in Quebec.
It amazes me that GM is in bankruptcy. I would have never thought it possible. Is it a management problem or labor problem? OR a little of both? Since the Gov’t now will own part of it, I understand, does that mean we get the profits once they get running again? LOL Maybe I get a Corvette!
Can they make a leaner better corporation? Lot of questions here. My main concern is we (the gov’t) plan to help the big guy, who helps the little guy? And What business does Government have in Private/public business? My opinion? NONE, NONE AT ALL! We are a capitalist society, sink or swim on your own merit and ingenuity.
I read today that locally they want us to spend $20 on the 20th To stimulate our local economy. In my time, as I remember it, my daddy would have said save $20 on the 20th. But our economy is now, a buy or credit economy. I think that is a shame. (by the way, I have friends who say the Gov’t sent them a check, gave them money. It did not, it returned some of YOUR (& mine) tax money.
Thanks for coming by the Log.
Repeat Abe Lincoln at the top!
