Concentrated Benefits/Diffused Costs

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Groups with a common special interest will fight for their benefit/action from the government.  The government will spread the costs across a much wider population through overt or hidden taxation schemes.  Since it’s just a small cost to each (or no cost to the 46% of workers who pay no net tax at all), the people paying the bill don’t fight against it.  Today, the people that are paying for it are in elementary school or unborn.  

We are 17 trillion in debt. It’s the greatest inter-generational theft in the history of the world.  

Is it time to limit the size and scope of government as it was intended when designed?

Not inferior unless we say so

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

There are no inferior brains, only inferior self images.

You are worthy.  We all are.  Just as worthy as anyone else.  

Tell the children.  Tell yourself.  Often.

Child Labor

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

In countries where children are working very young in factories: the cause is poverty.  “Should I send my child to work, or send them to bed hungry?”  This is not new.  Children have been working on farms forever.

The cure?  Fix poverty. How?  Rule of law, individual liberty, economic freedom and property rights.

It’s the governments of these countries (communism, plutocracy, dictatorship, socialist) that doesn’t get it and causes their people to stay in poverty and take desperate personal action.

Do you support worldwide freedom as the solution?

Hardship and problems

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

They have not come to stay, they have come to pass.

How soon will they pass?  

That is up to us.

West of Worry

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

The liberating part of bad things happening is that you don’t have to worry about that happening anymore!  (Assuming nobody was badly hurt or killed of course.)

We are well, and not worrying about losing our home!  We know we can deal with that.  I’m also not worried about anything lesser than that (which is a lot of things) happening either because I know I can overcome it.

What are you not worried about?

High Flight

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Our parents shape us.  We learn from them.  They cared for us when we couldn’t care for ourselves, and we care for them when they can’t.  If it’s not your blood parents, it’s someone else who fills in.  

My Dad died yesterday.  He was self employed as the best radio and tv repairman around.  The other shops would bring him stuff they couldn’t fix.  Most of all, he was a pilot and flight instructor, and taught me how to fly.  That was his passion.

“Because I Fly” 

I laugh more than other men, I look up and see more than they do.  I know how the clouds feel and what it’s like to have the blue sky in my lap, to look down on birds, to feel freedom in a thing called flying.  Who else can say their landscape is blue with beautiful light clouds?  Who else can say they know where the rainbow starts and where it ends? Who else can say they know the real reason a bird sings?  I envy the man that flys because he’s closest to God.  I know that is where I’ll be – because I have flown.

Goodbye Dad.

Human Accounts Receivable

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

“They owe me.”

“I’ll get them”.  

We carry around accounts of justice to be done, but it’s only hurting us.

Best to write these accounts off and move on.  

You’ll be a lighter human traveler.

We're all the same

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

A street kid looking to be respected.

A farmer looking to provide for his family.

An executive looking to create results.

A factory worker looking for significance.

A mother striving for her children.

Is it really any different?
