True Story – Laugh of the day

The receptionist ordered a Christmas tree online from Lowes, and went to pick it up last night.

When she got it home and opened it, they had a big surprise……..apparently it had been returned to Lowes, and no one checked it. Inside the box was a piece of berber carpet wrapped around 3 pair of pants, a couple of shirts, and some other clothing.

Pays to look before you leave, but they are having a big laugh and Lowes is going to use it as a training object for their people taking back returns.

President Obama’s Reelection: What Does It Mean?

By Robert Kiyosaki I do my best to remain politically neutral. I’m neither Republican nor Democrat. While I know the office of President is important, I don’t think it matters much which person or party is in power. As Meyer Amschel Rothschild, founder of the 18th-centry Rothschild banking empire, said:

“Give me control of a nation’s money supply, and I care not who makes its laws.”
In other words, it’s the Federal Reserve Bank, Goldman Sachs, and the hedge funds that make the rules, which is why the rich will grow richer as America grows poorer.
If you’ve followed my Conspiracy of the Rich blog posts, you know I’d rather operate by the rules of the rich than the rules of the poor and middle class. This is why I don’t have a job, don’t work for money, get into debt rather than get out of debt, and don’t save money in the bank or have a retirement plan filled with stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. Those are things the rich want the poor and middle class to do, which is why there is no true financial education in our schools.
Although I do my best to be politically neutral, I felt a sense of sadness after President Obama was reelected. It had nothing to do with President Obama personally. I feel he is doing what he thinks is best for the country.
My sadness was more for America, a once great country. The following are a few of my concerns:
1. When 50 percent of the population pays little to no taxes and then demands to raise taxes on those that do pay taxes, something is rotting in the core of our nation.
History does repeat. When the Roman Empire reached 50 percent of its population not paying taxes and demanding that those that paid taxes to pay more, the Roman Empire fell. Higher taxes caused many workers to simply stop working, collect their government stipend, and watch the gladiators fight in giant coliseums. Today, we have giant coliseums where millions watch giant football players clash while our leaders steal their wealth. Today, many Americans know more about football than they know about money.
2. In this election, the Republicans were pathetic. Obama didn’t win the election; the Republicans lost it. The Republicans are out of touch. Rather than focus on fixing the economy and creating jobs, they were hateful against minorities, especially Hispanics. The Latino vote destroyed Romney, a good man with sound business skills.
Again, history repeats. During times of economic duress, the populace looks for an ethnic group to discriminate against. When Germany went into depression after World War I, they murdered millions of Jews and other minorities, as if that would absolve their pain.
Today, it is not Jews, but rather Latinos.
The Republicans also spoke to women as if they were property of rich white men, telling them what to do with their bodies and imposing quasi-religious dogma on them. The women’s vote carried Obama.
In short, the Republicans gave capitalism a bad name.
In his book, What Americans Really Want…Really, Dr. Frank I Luntz, states:

“’Capitalists’ frighten people and ‘capitalism’ is short hand for CEO’s taking tens of millions of dollars on the same day their pens wipe out 10,000 jobs.”
In the same chapter, Dr. Luntz writes,

“What they [Americans] want instead are entrepreneurs.” “Unlike the ‘greed is good’ motto of Gordon Gekko and some hedge fund managers and venture capitalists, entrepreneurs are seen by Americans as business innovators and wealth creators.”
Dr. Luntz did a study for The Kaufman Foundation, the leading entrepreneurial think thank in America, and found, “It’s hard to tell which has become the stronger emotion, respect for entrepreneurs or hatred towards CEOs.”
In other words, I believe Americans voted not for President Obama but rather against greedy CEOs and counterfeit capitalists.
In my up coming book, Why A Students Work for C Students, I state that most CEOs are not capitalists. They are instead “managerial capitalists” and “corporate clones.” They are graduates from our finest business schools who become high-paid employees, not entrepreneurs. Rather than dream of starting their own businesses and employing people, they dream of climbing the corporate ladder and beating their fellow employees to the top.
There is a big difference between a corporate person like Jack Welch, former CEO of General Electric, and an entrepreneur like Thomas Edison, who never finished school, yet founded General Electric. Dr. Luntz states: “So how to equip a generation of Americans for success in entrepreneurship? Forget about MBA’s. Most business schools teach you to be successful in a big corporation rather than how to start your own company.”
So what did Dr. Luntz find that American’s wanted?

  • 80 percent want to be entrepreneurs
  • 14 percent want to be the CEO of a Fortune 500 Company
  • 6 percent did not know or did not respond

Dr. Luntz’s book was published in 2009, reflecting a significant change in the mood of Americans.
3. Both Obama and Romney were pathetic when it came to the truly important issue of jobs.
During their debates, both men agreed on one thing: their insistence that people going back to school would solve unemployment. Don’t they realize that schools mass produce employees? That is why parents repeatedly say, “Go to school to get a job.” Employees don’t produce jobs; they demand them. Mass-producing more employees is like a company stepping up production on buggy whips and hoping more buggies are created.
In other words, not only are our political parties failing the American public, so too are our schools.
Don’t the candidates realize that globalization is the problem? How can America compete when we pay our autoworkers $200 an hour (factoring in benefits and retirement) and foreign autoworkers are paid $2 an hour?
This country needs more entrepreneurs, not more employees. And we definitely don’t need more bureaucrats. If we produce more entrepreneurs, there will be greater need for employees. Simply said, entrepreneurs—not big business, labor unions, or the government—create jobs.
When government bureaucrats raise taxes and impose more regulation, it makes it harder for small-business entrepreneurs to survive.
It’s hard enough starting a business. In America there are approximately 600,000 new businesses started each year, and approximately 540,000 (90%) will fail in five years. Instead of making life easier for entrepreneurs, our leaders are making it harder.
With Obamacare imposing its will on businesses over 50 employees, it means most small businesses will remain small, rather than grow bigger and hire more employees.
This is why I felt saddened the morning after the election. I was in mourning for the once great United States of America.

This only happens once every 824 years.The Chinese call it the Money Bag. Send this to all your friends and enemies as well. According to the legend, you will receive money in 4 days. According to Feng Shui, if you do not send it you will stay poor. I in particular, will not let this opportunity pass by. So I send it to you with my best wishes. (Just in case it happens to be true!) Don’t believe in these kinds of things but what the heck, believe it when I see it.

I was in my neighborhood restaurant this morning and was seated behind a group of jubilant individuals celebrating the successful passing of the recent health care bill. I could not finish my breakfast. This is what ensued:

They were a diverse group of several races and both sexes. I heard the young man exclaim, “Isn’t Obama like Jesus Christ? I mean, after all, he is healing the sick. ” The young woman enthusiastically proclaimed, “Yeah, and he does it for free. I cannot believe anyone would think that a free market would work for health care. Another said, ‘The stupid Republicans want us all to starve to death so they can inherit all of the power. Obama should be made a Saint for what he did for those of us less fortunate.” At this, I had more than enough.

I arose from my seat, mustering all the restraint I could find, and approached their table. “Please excuse me; may I impose upon you for one moment?” They smiled and welcomed me to the conversation. I stood at the end of their table, smiled as best I could and began an experiment.

“I would like to give one of you my house. It will cost you no money and I will pay all of the expenses and taxes for as long as you live there. Anyone interested?” They looked at each other in astonishment. “Why would you do something like that?” asked a young man, “There isn’t anything for free in this world.” They began to laugh at me, as they did not realize this man had just made my point. “I am serious, I will give you my house for free, no money what so ever. Anyone interested?” In unison, a resounding “Hell Yeah” fills the room.

“Since there are too many of you, I will have to make a choice as to who receives this money-free bargain.” I noticed an elderly couple was paying attention to the spectacle unfolding before their eyes, the old man shaking his head in apparent disgust. “I tell you what; I will give it to the one of you most willing to obey my rules.” Again, they looked at one another, an expression of bewilderment on their faces. The perky young woman asked, “What are the rules?” I smiled and said, “I don’t know. I have not yet defined them. However, it is a free home that I offer you.” They giggled amongst themselves, the youngest of which said, “What an old coot. He must be crazy to give away his home. Go take your meds, old man.” I smiled and leaned into the table a bit further. “I am serious, this is a legitimate offer.” They gaped at me for a moment.

“I’ll take it you old fool. Where are the keys?” boasted the youngest among them. “Then I presume you accept ALL of my terms then?” I asked.. The elderly couple seemed amused and entertained as they watched from the privacy of their table. “Oh hell yeah! Where do I sign up?” I took a napkin and wrote, “I give this man my home, without the burden of financial obligation, so long as he accepts and abides by the terms that I shall set forth upon consummation of this transaction.” I signed it and handed it to the young man who eagerly scratched out his signature. “Where are the keys to my new house?” he asked in a mocking tone of voice. All eyes were upon us as I stepped back from the table, pulling the keys from pocket and dangling them before the excited new homeowner.

“Now that we have entered into this binding contract, witnessed by all of your friends, I have decided upon the conditions you are obligated to adhere from this point forward. You may only live in the house for one hour a day. You will not use anything inside of the home. You will obey me without question or resistance. I expect complete loyalty and admiration for this gift I bestow upon you. You will accept my commands and wishes with enthusiasm, no matter the nature. Your morals and principles shall be as mine. You will vote as I do, think as I do and do it with blind faith. These are my terms. Here are your keys.” I reached the keys forward and the young man looked at me dumbfounded.

“Are you out of your mind? Who would ever agree to those ridiculous terms?” the young man appeared irritated. “You did when you signed this contract before reading it, understanding it and with the full knowledge that I would provide my conditions only after you committed to the agreement.” Was all I said. The elderly man chuckled as his wife tried to restrain him. I was looking at a now silenced and bewildered group of people. “You can shove that stupid deal up you’re a** old man, I want no part of it” exclaimed the now infuriated young man. “You have committed to the contract, as witnessed by all of your friends; you cannot get out of the deal unless I agree to it. I do not intend to let you free now that I have you ensnared. I am the power you agreed to. I am the one you blindly and without thought chose to enslave yourself to. In short, I am your Master.” At this, the table of celebrating individuals became a unified group against the unfairness of the deal.

After a few moments of unrepeatable comments and slurs, I revealed my true intent. “What I did to you is what this administration and congress did to you with the health care legislation. I easily suckered you in and then revealed the real cost of the bargain. Your folly was in the belief that you can have something you did not earn; that you are entitled to that which you did not earn; that you willingly allowed someone else to think for you. Your failure to research, study and inform yourself permitted reason to escape you. You have entered into a trap from which you cannot flee. Your only chance of freedom is if your new Master gives it to you. A freedom that is given can also be taken away; therefore, it is not freedom.” With that, I tore up the napkin and placed it before the astonished young man. “This is the nature of your new health care legislation.”

I turned away to leave these few in thought and contemplation and was surprised by applause. The elderly gentleman, who was clearly entertained, shook my hand enthusiastically and said, “Thank you Sir, these kids don’t understand Liberty these days.” He refused to allow me to pay my bill as he said, “You earned this one, it is an honor to pickup the tab.” I shook his hand in thanks, leaving the restaurant somewhat humbled, and sensing a glimmer of hope for my beloved country.

I found this on the Internet and this is a good idea to share because it fits our government to a tee.

It’s not over by a long shot!!!

—–

Loretta —

We’re not going to just roll over and accept a march toward a European-style, cradle-to-grave welfare state. We’re not going to accept that 2 percent growth and 8 percent unemployment are simply the “new normal.” The ideas of limited government and economic freedom are important not because of winning and losing elections, but because they are necessary for the blossoming of human freedom and prosperity.

Click here NOW to urge the House to STAND STRONG against ANY tax hikes in the lame duck session.

As free-market activists, we must immediately pick ourselves up off the floor and stay in the fight. In early 2009, President Obama used the his electoral momentum on an $800 billion stimulus bill that dramatically expanded the size, scope, and intrusiveness of the federal government.

Now, in late 2012, he will attempt to complete the tax-and-spend circle with a massive new tax hike. If he succeeds, it will detroy hundreds of thousands of jobs and almost certainly plunge us back into recession.

Click here NOW to urge the House to STAND STRONG against ANY tax hikes in the lame duck session.

President Obama was narrowly reelected, but the American people did not vote for tax hikes. In fact, one of Obama’s major campaign themes was the claim that Romney wanted to raise taxes.

The 2012 election was a status quo election; Obama was returned to the White House, but Republicans retained the House because the American people want them to continue to exercise a check and balance.

But the pressure from the media and Washington special interests to misinterpret the election as a mandate for higher taxes will be intense. We must have a massive show of force urging the House to stand strong.

Click here NOW to urge the House to STAND STRONG against ANY tax hikes in the lame duck session.

We can’t give up. Even now. The stakes are too high.

Yours truly,
Phil Kerpen
