When we have everyone wanting to take away from one group of people to give to another then yes, I am concerned. As long as the government is
taking money away from me, to give to others - to which I do consider many to be LAZY - then I am concerned in a "negative" manner. It is me that
worries about my personal affairs, I don't expect the government to look after me.
Also, some of you are smoking some good weed if you think we are going to have a harmonious society.
(and I could care less about another persons gameroom - but when that person thinks I could work so he can spend more time playin, then think again
First off my friend, realise what you are arguing over. MONEY. It does not exist in nature and must be created. Why is it created? Is it merely a
means of exchange?
Your second point is that some people are lazy. Here grab on to my sleeve as we take a trip to the past. We are going to travel back to the year 1700
to the Imperial Colony of South Carolina. Let's go observe slave culture.
Our first stop is the fields. Look at all of those slaves picking cotton. Can you feel the hot sun? Can you see how they are baking and sweating. Look
over there across the way. There is a slave about to go down from heat stroke. He has obviously had as much as his body can take. Oh, there he goes on
the ground. Now watch.
See the the guy with the whip? That is the slave master. He keeps everyone productive. Nothing escapes his gaze. See, he saw the poor slave go down,
See how he rounded up two more slaves, they were just sent to fetch the water pail. Perhaps they are going to give their Brother a drink. Oh no, no
drink. Did you see that? They just dumped the bucket on their Brother to revive him. Now watch the slave Master. There is the whip! Oh, see how it
cuts the flesh? Rather painful looking isn't it.
Now there goes the good slave, back to picking cotton. He won't dare fall out in the hot Sun again.
How about we get out of this sun and go look inside of the Plantation house shall we?
Oh my look at these slaves in here. They have it much much better. Look at the fine clothes they are dressed in. Do you hear how they talk? They sound
just like you and I. They received a moderate education because they must be able to communicate with the Masters Guests when he entertains.
There are a couple over in the kitchen, lets go listen in!
Slave one: Dorothy have you heard that Jethro went down in the field today? The slave master whooped him good!
Slave two: Oh Rebecca, you know Jethro plain don't like to listen to nobody. He has been trouble round here since they bought him down at the auction.
Everybody round here knows he's justa puttin on Massa.
Slave one: I don't know Dorothy, they says he was beat real good. Don't seem no one would take a beaten that good just to not listen.
Slave two: Mind your mouth Rebecca! Don't you like what you do? Don't the Master give you good clothes? don't you get to best foods? Don't you get a
log for the fire when it is particularly cold? Mind your mouth lest they put YOU in the fields.
Slave one: Your right Dorothy, Jethro must just be puttin on Massa.
Slave two: Good for you Rebecca! Tend your own affairs and let the field slaves tend theirs.
Heard enough my friend?
