The Truth About Money

The TRUTH about Money

How true is this!

If only they would teach stuff like THIS at school!

This, writen by economist Milton Freidman

The four ways money is spent:

When you spend YOUR money on YOURSELF, you're keen to get the thing you want most at the best price. Think middle-aged men haggling with a Porsche dealer.

When you spend YOUR money on OTHER PEOPLE, you still want a bargain but you're less interested in pleasing the recipients of your spending. That's why children get underwear at Christmas.

When you spend OTHER PEOPLES MONEY ON YOURSELF, you get what you want but price concerns go out the window. ie:  second wives, riding around with the middle-aged men in the Porsches, who shop at Designer Clothes shops, as this type of spender.

When you spend OTHER PEOPLES MONEY ON OTHER PEOPLE you don't give a damn.
That would be government.

So don't blame politicians for your tax bills. If you want lower taxes, you need to wean yourselves off government services and the belief that the answer to every problem is that the government ought to "do something". 

It's not just a case of governments doing more with less. It's about governments doing less with less.
When that realisation dawns, you may discover that most things the government can do, you can do better and a whole lot cheaper.

Why do I bother? Here's why!

I have been  a regular contributor to the "letters to the editor" page of the local daily newspapers for some years now, where I have been accused of "laying in wait to pounce upon those I disagree with."

These people are generally those who wish to have a say in what I can and cannot do with MY LIFE, MY PROPERTY, and MY BODY.

I do not in fact lay in wait to prey upon them, as their lives and activities are of no interest to me whatsoever.

What I have done is become vociferous in standing up for personal responsibility and property rights in the face of the creeping plague of socialism that threatens the life, liberty and property rights of us all.

On most occasions my letters are aimed at people who wish to use force and compulsion to get me (and others) to comply with things THEY think we should, or things THEY believe are for our own good.

To these people I give a vigorous one fingered salute, (and all the things that salute stands for,) followed by a hearty chorus of BUGGER OFF.

My letters often tend to be based around themes such as:
Keep your hands out of my pocket, there aint a damn thing in there that belongs to you!
Local council should not be in the entertainment business!
OR the prostitution business
Die-while-you-wait Government health system
NaZis on Air Funding
Political correctness gone mad
Tax is Theft
Nanny States one-size-fits-all Brainwashing centres (Government run school system)
. . . and last but not least my core principle . . . "The Non-Initiation of Force."

I am of the belief that much of what my local council is involved in can be done better and more efficiently by private enterprise, if only they would GET OUT OF THE WAY and let them!

Anyway, if you log in here on a regular basis, no doubt you will get the idea of where I am coming from, and I look forward to hearing from you, so post away.

Principles! - What Principles?

I recently admonished Simon Bridges and Bob Clarkson for being bereft of principles, and have had people asking me what do I mean by principles?

Principles are a set of fundamental rules by which you or your group operate. 

They set out the foundation upon how you make decisions in a consistent manner, ensuring that followers know what you stand for.

If you stand fast by your principles and do not break or compromise them, and do not stray from the rules they set out, you should be able to make consistent choices and come to  consistent moral conclusions that apply equally and fairly to all.

This in turn should give people confidence in placing their trust in your decisions because they are always consistent, fair, just and moral, and you can be assured exactly how this person or group will vote or what their decision will be based upon their core principles.

The National party have a set of principles which they totally ignore and contravene daily. 

The reason for this is that people like Simon and Bob do not understand how principles work, let alone that they even have any and why they are important! They just go by opinions. - What they FEEL is right, or what their constituents want.

Every one of my letters is based upon my set of principles which I go to great lengths not to break. Sometimes that means that I may stand up for something that I personally do not agree with. 

Opinions are like arseholes - Everybody has one!.

Everybody has an opinion, but you can't base policy on personal opinion. It is immorral, unfair and inconsistent.

All present political parties (except one) have lost sight of their core principles and campaign on feelings and public opinion. 

WHY do they continue to do this?

Because if they didn't campaign on these things, they would not be elected. 

That is WHY we have marijuana or drug prohibition - If National or labour said they would legalise drugs, most of their supporters would desert them, and they would then be out of a job - political suicide.

That is why alchohol is still legal. 

National or Labour would have banned it by now - along with cigarettes, but if either of those parties said they would ban alchohol or cigarettes, they would lose popularity, and commit political suicide.

politics based upon feelings and opinions, instead of RIGHTS and PRINCIPLES.

Until principles are rediscovered our political system will be doomed to remain the farce that it has become, and immorral and un-just policies will continue to be forced upon us by un-principled cartoon characters like Simple Simon and Bob the Builder.

Simon Bridges Democracy Competition - What a Joke

Tauranga MP Simon Bridges is inviting senior secondary school students to compete in an essay competition about democracy.
Students from schools in his electorate are asked to write an essay of up to 1500 words on ‘young people and democracy’.

From the entrants, a winner is chosen by a committee to receive both a prize from Simon and earn entry into a larger pool of contestants from around the country to win a trip to Parliament.
In Wellington, the winner will visit the Prime Minister’s office, watch parliamentary debate and experience many other significant aspects of government.
The winner also receives a lunch at Bellamy’s at Parliament and joins a discussion with the president and members of the Association of Former Members of Parliament, who are sponsoring the essay competition.
“This essay competition will be a great way for Tauranga students to learn about democracy and will also allow one fortunate student to directly experience New Zealand democracy up close and personal,” says Simon.
“I wish I had had this kind of opportunity when I was at school.
“I didn’t visit Parliament until I was at university and I recall it was a real eye opener for me.
“I hope that a Tauranga student gets to have a special Parliament experience.”
Entry to the competition is handled through a student’s school and essays must be at Simon’s office by Monday, April11.

 (This story above quoted from the SunLive website:

The Tomahawk Kids Response: 

What a JOKE this is!

The child-molesters of the mind (ie government-run education system and curriculum) do not teach children that there is any alternative to the MAJORITY WINS system.

They have the monopoly of brainwashing our children and feeding them a one-sided  story, and then have the temerity to ask them to write a balanced essay , when they have absolutely NO IDEA that there is even any alternative.

Talk about mind control

They do not teach children that in a vote of 100 people 51 get to DESTROY the rights of 49 people.

They teach them that MINORITIES have NO RIGHTS.

They teach them that it is OK to gang up with likeminded people and BULLY under threat of FORCE and imprisonment - the minority. - THEN they have the temerity to run a campaign that BULLYING is BAD!!!

Democracy is 2 wolves and 1 sheep voting on what to have for dinner!

They teach that individuals HAVE NO RIGHTS! When we are ALL individuals.

The result of this competition will be a disgrace - a true indication of the grip government have on the lives of our children and our country.

If they taught that there is an alternative, people like Simon would not have a job.

The winners get a LUNCH AT BELLAMYS so they can get an early induction into the life of a parasite (oops - I mean politician)

Bob the Builder Vs Simple Simon - a New fable by Aesop

Here unfolds a tale of two cartoon characters, who, if having been alive around 620BC would have had a story written about them by a man who went by the name of Aesop.

People in Glass houses shouldnt throw stones, and Bob the Builder has built himself a glass palace, and is throwing Stones at Simple Simon, and if the situation wasn't so serious I’d be laughing!

Bob is berating Simon for toeing the National party line on the seabed and foreshore bill - ie not listening to his constituents, and not making up his own mind, instead, just being a puppet and doing as hes told by the party.

Ahem! Does anybody else recall Mr Clarkson standing on the steps of parliament saying he opposed the anti-smacking bill, only to toe the party line and vote in favour of it? Sorry Bob, but what a hypocrit.

This is what happens when you give your vote to cartoon characters who dont understand what it is to have principles, and who end up being part of the problem instead of the solution.

If Mr Clarkson insists on throwing stones, he had better make sure the glass house he has built is made of toughened glass.

Both of these immoral and principle-less political puppets are as bad as each other, and until they learn the meaning of the word principles, you can expect more of the same. lmao
