Financial Functions and Terms

Some recent thoughts on money:
Cash flow: The acuteness of problems and unfortunate events is directly proportionate to the amount of money you have in excess of resolving them.

The amount of concern a person has with wanting people to like them is inversely related to how much money they have.

I am learning the importance of “AAP” – Or always acting poor. That way you can always collect, never have to lend and mooch for excess off of others.

Sometimes you got to say no.

Maybe it all is a conspiracy?

Is this the reason that tax increases will never happen and poor republicans think it is ok? The book was not that good it was a ton of rambling but what it did do it put some terms on my radar and I am starting to clearly see the undertow and how strong it really is. ….scary

Smoking as a Blankie

I have come to the conclusion that smoking functioned for me like a child’s blanket. Something I would do when I was nervous, needed to become invisible or remove myself from a tense situation. It was a shield. A barrier. A way to lower other people’s expectations of me before I had a chance to let them down. It kept me from feeling vulnerable.

I am not sure when it happened exactly. When I stop needing this but I am glad I don’t smoke any more. I take it as a positive sign in my believe in myself.

People seem very concerned about what is trending on twitter. I seem to find the whole think rather useless that is unless we are redefining trending a topic that is talked about for 30 seconds that has some glib pop cultural reference hardly seems to be trending, let alone and any direction other then immediately up and immediately down

Wrong to Enjoy the Turkey Recall?

I have a lot of people who say I need to eat more turkey. Well I don’t really like ground turkey. So is it wrong to take a little pleasure in knowing that all these health food propagators are getting sick taking their own medicine?

What do you expect I am an asshole…

What if Politics Had to Abide by Bully Laws?

Lawsuit currently facing red wing schools “Bullying is when someone is in a position of power and takes advantage of that power. That's kind of what happened here. My client was a minority at the school. There wasn't anything she could do when she's only one of a handful of minorities."

Interesting so if we apply this mandate to congress. They could be held liability for criminal and civil litigation, subject to immediate expulsion .

But I guess it is a shame they are not subject to the same laws that they pass for others.

Or a wake up call on how unrealistic bully laws actually are..
