Don’t wait for politicians to take the lead

leave a comment »

A Message to Working People: an essay by Robert Reich former labor secretary……        Your typical wage is below what it was in the late 1970s, in terms of what it can buy. Two-thirds of you are living paycheck to paycheck. Almost 30 percent of you don’t have steady employment: You’re working part-time or on contract, with none of the labor protections created over the last 80 years – no unemployment insurance if you lose your job, no worker’s compensation if you’re injured, no time-and-a-half pay for working more than 40 hours a week, no minimum wage, and you have to pay your own Social Security. Over 37 percent of you have dropped out of the workforce altogether because you’ve become too discouraged even to look for work. That’s a near record. As if all this weren’t enough, the schools and infrastructure on which you rely have been neglected, and the ravages of climate change — droughts, fires, and floods – are worsening.

Yet the American economy is twice as large as it was in the late 1970s. As a nation, we are richer than we’ve ever been. We could afford to do so much better.
None of this has happened by accident. Those with great wealth have translated it into political power. And with that power they’ve busted labor unions (to which a third of private-sector workers belonged in the 1950s but now fewer than 7 percent do), halved the taxes they pay (from a top marginal rate of 91 percent in the 1950s to 39 percent today, and from an effective rate of 52 percent then to 18 percent now), cut safety nets, deregulated Wall Street, privatized much of the economy, expanded bankruptcy protection for themselves while narrowing it for you, forced you into mandatory arbitration of employment disputes, expanded their patents and intellectual property, got trade deals that benefited them but squeezed your pay, and concentrated their market power so you pay more for pharmaceuticals, health insurance, airfare, food, internet service, and much else.
This is bad for everyone. Even those at the top would do better with a smaller share of an economy that was growing because the middle class was expanding. And they’d do better in a society that hadn’t become so angry and susceptible to demagogues blaming immigrants and imports for what has happened.
But none of this will change unless we change it. No single person – not even Bernie Sanders, had he become president – can do what needs to be done, alone. You and I and others must continue to organize and mobilize. Do not find refuge in cynicism. Change is slow, and at times seems hopeless. But change must come. Do not wait for politicians to take the lead. We are the leaders.

“Darwinian Economy,” staring at us !

leave a comment »

With the planet staggering under the greatest load of debt ever seen in human history….

There are some very smart, well informed writers, editors, and financial counselors, of which some I admire and practice what they have to say, that are saying three things about the results of the present economy which are inevitable:
(1) devaluation of the dollar
(2) war (civil or international)
(3) lowered standards of living in the USA
– for at least a decade!
The Economy has hurt many good people. I believe there is a mass of people who are desperate to find smart ways of making money, to Make Change Happen.

With this “Darwinian Economy,” staring at us what is the American public to do?
——————————————————————————–
Stare the “Darwinian Economy” dead square on and declare “the ‘masses’ are coming!”

Consider the following . . .

How do you “leverage” your efforts to maximize your earnings and efforts now?

Get a 2nd or 3rd job? (Too much time and too little pay?)
Hit it big in stocks and bonds. (Without expertise and careful planning the odds are against you!)
Hit the lottery? (Odds are 80 million to 1 – against you!)
Start your own traditional business? (Too time consuming/expensive.)
Buy a franchise? (Expensive, time consuming – 1/3 fail within 2 years.)
Begin working at a low cost, home business quickly!

With Little Effort

leave a comment »

 I recently heard a story about an engine on a cruise ship that had failed. The ship’s owners called in one expert after another, but none of them could figure out how to get the engine going again.

Then they brought in an old weathered looking man who had been a ship mechanic ever since he was a young man. He carried a huge bag of tools with him, and when he arrived, he immediately went to work.

He inspected the engine very carefully – top to bottom. Two of the ship’s owners were there, watching, hoping the mechanic would know what to do.

After looking things over, the old man reached into his bag and pulled out a small hammer. He carefully tapped here and there on a certain part of the engine,  instantly, the engine lurched to life. He then cauticiously put his hammer back into his tool bag. The engine was fixed!

A week later, the owners received a bill from the mechanic for ten thousand dollars. 

“What?!” the owners exclaimed. “He hardly did anything!”

So they wrote the old mechanic a note saying, “Please send us an itemized bill for your services.”

The old mechanic sent a bill that read:

  Tapping with a hammer ……. $   2.00

  Knowing what to tap …….. $9998.00

Effort is important, but knowing where to make effort in our life makes all the difference.

Do You Have A New Year’s Resolution?

leave a comment »

I wanted to remind you about your appointment with Parkinson’s Law AND Where you were 10 years ago !
Do You Have A New Year’s Resolution? 
I’m interested in what you are planning!
We might be able to team our efforts! follow my discussion on this blog
KEEPING YOUR NEW YEARS RESOLUTION: THE abc’s OF PARKINSON’S LAW
 
 And for updates "connect" with me at
 
Dictionary
Wordsmith Words 
(PAHR-kin-suhnz law)
noun
Any of several satirical observations propounded as economic laws, especially "Work expands to fill the time available for its completion."


Etymology
After Cyril Northcote Parkinson (1909-1993).

Usage
"According to Murphy’s Law, this column will have a mistake in it. According to Parkinson’s Law, it will take you as long to read this column as the time you allot to reading it." — Rob Kyff, This Column Obeys All Laws, The Hartford Courant, Nov 11, 1998.

 
Corollaries
In time, however, the first-referenced meaning of the phrase has dominated, and sprouted several corollaries:

for example, the derivative relating to computers:   Data expands to fill the space available for storage. (software bloat)
"Parkinson’s second law", is "expenditures rise to meet income".

Generalisation
"Parkinson’s Law" could be generalized further still as:

The demand upon a resource tends to expand to match the supply of the resource. 

Related efficiency
Parkinson also proposed a rule about the efficiency of administrative councils.

He defined a coefficient of inefficiency with the number of members as the main determining variable.
 Under Parkinson’s law organizations become infected with a disease termed injelitis, which causes the organization to become moribund, resulting in little constructive activity and accomplishment.
 
 
"…HE’S CHECKING IT TWICE."
Make your list - And check it twice!
I hope…
