Thanks for the replies. Kstring, that's a good post.
I've just been working on my businesses and putting a future there for myself, and I felt like posting. Why does CNN, Fox news, or the local paper
have to dictate how we live? Aren't we the ones responsible for our future?
I just hear a lot of scary news. I just want to puke every time mom turns that crap on.
Sure we might have some hurdles, but haven't we persisted as a species for a long time? We are survivors. I'm not going to lie down and die for
Really, what is money anyway? It's paper, but it has a meaning attached to it. It is just another form of exchange. Money could be grains of corn
just as easy. It just says I have worked "x" amount of hours, and I get "x" amount of dollars, or I have sold "x" amount of products for "x"
amount of money. The money now has a value. It has the value "we" place on it. How can we give the money more value? My idea... We can change
it by making and selling good products, doing good work, etc. Being productive, doing well. And we can simply say that money is valuable again.
It is really not that much different than trading things. A fur for a bushel of corn for example, basically saying that a fur is equal in value to a
bushel of corn. You just get money in exchange for your efforts or products and you then spend it as you like.
If we want our dollar to be worth something, then we simply change it.
Let CNN and Fox talk amongst themselves and pull each other down, not us. I'm not going to waste my time watching it.
Unplug yourself from the media, and lets move on with life. Now, that's not to say, don't keep up to date on weather and really important news.
After all, there could be a hurricane or something bad coming that you want to be prepared for. Just know what news is really beneficial and what
news is just media scare tactics and garbage. If you can, find a media outlet that doesn't unnecessarily promote fear and negativity.
I really have to hammer in this point. The media can really have a negative effect on you, especially if you are glued to it, like some people are.
There are a lot of folks out there that can recite what they saw on the news, and they get themselves all drawn downward into the "goo." Some of
them don't see a way out. They think they can't change anything. It is not true, unless you let it be true.
We are the people of this country, and of this world. We are the ones who are going to put the future there. Don't let the media put a future there
And, try to find a way to get your friends and family away from the media. Skillfully, some people are addicted to it like crack or something. You
could just try and get them to do something else. Get out, take a walk, go to the store, something, play a game, help them start a business,
something. Take the "cathode ray media nipple" out of their mouths.
