    Thoughts on Life

    “In a country well governed, poverty is something to be ashamed of. In a country badly governed, wealth is something to be ashamed of.” Confuscious – 500 BC


    Any thoughts good people?

    Think we have a mix of the above in UK! We have rich and poor and a government to be ashamed of.
    Cheers MIKE.

    Child poverty is under scrutiny in NZ at the moment i,e kids going to school with out breakfast, what ever you do you must not blame the parents it is just that they need more money. so I ask "what is poverty?" and in this case who is to blame?

    The "neo-socialists" in europe, america, and elsewhere are arguing for "total equality" - and this they will achieve through confiscatory taxation - where every one is "equally poor", which equals "total equality" - Where everyone is in equal misery...who then have to stand with outstretched cap in hand, begging for mercy and alms from the NeoSocialistElite.

    And I am VERY ANGRY!!! Why? the neosocialistelite wants to keep humanity in thralldom - This what makes me WHITEHOT with ANGER!!!!!!!!

    Oh no! Corno Dolce, typing that he's "WHITEHOT with ANGER".
    It might be time for me to get out of his kitchen.

    I know, I know, this is southern Ontario, the global home of commercial electricity,
    but even I'm appalled at the widespread use of cell and smart phones by people who not only don't have anything to say,
    or anything worth looking at, they might not even be sure where they are.

    If it's not a flatscreen it's difficult to give a TV away.

    England needs to quit the EU. It is developing along the lines of the old USSR. We are now being threatened with dire consequences if we veto the £12,000,000,000 increase which they want us to pay to prop up the Euro.

    "Hey there, watch that sound, everyone knows what's going round".

    Without a long story, the only time I ever dissed anybody was saying "disco here, dat go dere".
    No-one disagreed.
    In this great and enforced bilingualism country, you have to talk like that, once in a while.
    Do not beware, Corno Dolce, dis agreement looks good.

    Its quite simple Colin. What town is invisible?

    As you approach it the town Diss appears (Norfolk).

    Does that clarify things.

    An attempt by a man at defining life range can be achieve only. If he reduces the ‘real world’ to the status of a purely intentional creation with a view to contrast this with the real mode of being an object or an event. One will last forever,*creation. Another will turn into dust, *object. Flat TV may appear in the future as a vinyl record. Nothing wrong with that, ‘cause: vinyl, CD, HDD, are nothing more, nothing less than a media for creation.
    TechnoVeges have tendency to forget that. Being focus on the media (new model), instead of message itself (creation), narrowing their range in life.
