If you in some way agree with these statements please U2U me and ask what WE can do especially if you live in Chicago
I dont agree with your statement. I think you went to public schools and got a education in emotions. Your whole premise is on the basis of the
The concept of deserve is used by people who like to be breast fed...by others. OUt of the public till. Many do so as a career. I am also speaking
about corporations here too...not just people in a hurricane.
You never look to government as the solution to anything ..ever...they are usually the problem. You should already know this...especially living up
north in Chicago.
Governments have always been corrupt...nothing new here..not just this one but others too. I dont know what you are possibly thinking about.
You use a few examples of what you think are injustices...you offer no clear solutions. You use implicit ..not explicit. This is the same tack that a
politician uses. Are you a politician?
THis is not Jerry Springer..and his injustice techniques. Do you have any real solutions other than gripes??
I suggest to you that any solution will not be through government. Do not long term look to the government for the solution to anything. The obvious
pattern of government is to place blame and take credit whenever possible. This is not working in the public intrest. THe famous hurricane to which
you are refering is a textbook example of this on all sides.
My question to you is how much of your goodies and time are you willing to give up to make this a better world or country?? Not everyone else but you
personally...goodies and time?? HOw much???
Your problem is you assume everyone "Deserves." Sorry but it is not true.
What you find is that people deserve what everyone else produces.
Your belief makes good politics and gets people elected from the public till but it is not true.
People who deserve ...do work and sacrafices to prepare for problems..not look to government or others to "rescue them."
I dont owe people because I made preparations for disasters and others did not.
I took care of eight people for 10 days here after a hurricane. Most of these people were less than useless...totally high maintenance and
"Deserving" of others time labors and moneys. I will not be doing this again. THese people were actually resentful when you wanted help from them.
But they know how to go where the good times and good easy free stuff is located.
They did not help maintain the generator..they did not buy fuel..they did not help with food...they just pit stopped on others time and labor before
going back out on the race track. High speed..low drag.
I even offered electricity from my generator to my neighbor. This guy was so stupid that he listened to his wife and plugged in his window
airconditioner rather than just his refrigerator and some lights. His wife was more concerned with her immediate comfort levels then her long term
survival. He overloaded my small generator with his very large 110 volt airconditioner. He would have had us all without electricity by not thinking.
I unplugged him and his house and pulled my cord back to my property. And this "Deserving " type was actually resentful of me taking my electricity
back. To this day that I know of he has not made any preparations. I will not be helping him again in the next hurricane even though I purchased a
much larger generator. I now have two generators.
OH..by the way...this neighbor of whom I am speaking is not black....as if blackness or non blackness is even important in what you are describing.
Some people are just plain liabilities. And you want to talk about "Deserve"
How much people "Deserve". I dont buy it.
How much of your substance are you going to be putting on the line for the comfort and survivability of others??
NOw...are all people like those I am describing..no they are not. YOu just be very particular about who is "deserving " of your time and moneys.
The term "Deserve" is an implication used and misused by others to fool many peoples. It is nice politics but often conflicts with the reality you
find on the streets. I am not here for indentured servitude...yours or anyone elses. I have already been up that trail.
Most of these people are savy enough to prepare for tonights television program..but not for their survival. Really stupid. THey too went to public
schools. You can translate my last sentance as a television education.
