We should have a freedom week.

Free from work
Free from bills
Free from stress

We should plan a date for everyone to take a week off at the same time. If this works, we then make it a Month.



We call it 'The peoples holiday... Freedom week'.

We stand... we speak.

If this catches on and you are the "front man" you will have a single car-car accident or become very very depressed and have a double tap suicide to the back of the head or enjoy pizza with a hard drive to prove it.

That type of time off was only promised "later". See the computer was supposed to crack the work week down to 30ish hours a week.
But hell, if those worker bees can be 25% more productive, that means in a 40 hour work week 25% more work can be done for the same cost (pay). And that is what happened and is happening.
Very little cost of living raises since Reagan.

What does the ginger bread man mean?

The ginger bread man is a poem/song/nursery rhime from way back when:

Run, run, run as fast as you can.
You’ll never catch me, I’m the gingerbread man.
I ran from the baker and his wife too.
You’ll never catch me, not any of you.

The baker made a boy one day
Who leapt from the oven ready to play.
He and his wife were ready to eat
The gingerbread man who had run down the street.

Run, run, run as fast as you can,
You’ll never catch me, I’m the gingerbread man.
I ran from the baker and his wife too.
You’ll never catch me, not any of you.

Then came a pig and cow and hare
Who joined in the chase around the square.
They were all hungry and ready to eat,
But that gingerbread man was too quick on his feet.

Run, run, run as fast as you can,
You’ll never catch me, I’m the gingerbread man
I ran from the baker and his wife too
You’ll never catch me, not any of you

He came to a pond that blocked his path
And gingerbread men don’t like to bath.
Out jumped a fox who said, “hop on,
I will take you safely across the pond."

Run, run, run as fast as you can.
You’ll never catch me, I’m the gingerbread man.
I ran from the baker and his wife too.
You’ll never catch me, not any of you.

He climbed up onto the fox’s back,
Who licked his lips and wanted to snack.
He climbed onto the fox’s head,
Who loved the taste of gingerbread.

Run, run, run as fast as you can.
You’ll never catch me I’m the gingerbread man.
He trusted the fox to help his plan
And that was the end of the gingerbread man.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Unfortunately, he did get caught by the fox in the end but I can outwit a fox.

It's true... make us work longer hours for not much more in wages and then everything goes up in costs anyway so we end up with less.

Communism doesn't work. Poverty and war are the only answers.

That is exactly what the gingerbread creature thought too.

Self-delusion is so common these days.

That would be nice for everyone.

I can imagine the atmosphere would feel quite pleasant.

You're always free to not work, not accumulate bills, and not be stressed.

What we really need is a week free from income taxes and victimless laws.

This will be freedom days. Not sick days or holidays which is what they call it but really its called 'time-off for good behaviour'.

What about the guys supplying your water, electricity, emptying your garbage even the guy dealing with your sewerage. These services are not automatic. If they took a week off your life wouldn't be worth living after a couple of days. Or is it only people you want to have the time off and make everyone else work. Selfish barst***.
Ps I want to be in the group of week off. Probably on a beach in the Bahamas. With free food and drinks threw in.

I could never do it because; responsibility.

I'd worry about bills, mortgages, payroll for my employees, tasks for clients that need work done.

Bills are something that you willingly pay because you're doing something that directly relates to you (buy a home, car, use electricity, spend on a credit card, etc.).

Federal income tax is money taken from what you earn from your own efforts with the threat of imprisonment if you don't provide it and spread out to many things that have no direct benefit to you.

No, income taxes are not bills as I meant them.
