31 Jul 2015 Roddy Piper Dead at 61

Roddy Piper Dead

Roddy Piper wasn’t my favorite wrestler growing up. I always watched wrestling to see Hulk Hogan. But even though Roddy Piper wasn’t my favorite wrestler of all-time, it saddens me to hear that he died today. At this point, I do not know what was his cause of death. 61 isn’t young, but it also isn’t old enough to leave the earth.

In memory of Roddy Piper, I will kick ass and chew bubble gum this weekend.

A Fable About Asking for More

I love to read. Right now, I’m reading a little bit about how to negotiate. Here’s a funny tidbit I’d like to share with you.

There was once a very old couple who lived in a dilapidated thatched hut on a remote Pacific Island. One day, a hurricane blew through the village and demolished their home. Because they were much too old and poor to rebuild the hut, the couple moved in with their daughter and her husband. This arrangement precipitated an unpleasant domestic situation, as the daughter’s hut was barely big enough for herself, her husband, and their four children, let alone the in-laws.

The daughter went to the wise person of the village, explained the problem and asked, “Whatever will we do?”

The wise person puffed slowly on a pipe and then responded, “You have chickens, don’t you?”

Why raising minimum wage is a complete waste of time

To the non-thinkers out there, raising the minimum wage would make a lot of sense. But that’s because they’re not “thinking” about the problem. They’re not taking into consideration the cost of doing business.

Why minimum wage is a waste of time

What is an employee to a employer? An asset, right? Also, an expense, isn’t that true? Employees cost the employers money. It doesn’t matter if the work makes the business money. Employee wages cost the business money. Sure, businesses make money off of certain employees, but not all employees, and there’s still a cost associated with an employee.

What happens when you raise the cost of a business to do business? It hurts the business, doesn’t it? Then what do businesses do? They raise their rates for their services or products.

Essentially that’s what will happen when minimum wages are increases. The cost of business will rise, and so will prices. You’ll never be able to force the wages to match the cost of living. Socialism has tried to re-distribute money, and has failed every time. Meanwhile, capitalism raises the ceiling, and lifts up the poor. What, you don’t feel good knowing that your homeless have $600 cell phones? CONTINUE READING

America’s Bill of NON-Rights

We the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings of debt-free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great-grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt ridden, delusional.

We hold these truths to be self-evident: that a whole lot of people are confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim they require a Bill of NON-Rights.

ARTICLE I:

You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV, or any other form of wealth. More power to you if you can legally acquire them, but no one is guaranteeing anything.

Do we really have the freedom of speech?

I’ve been spending a lot of time reading the constitution lately, and some of the court cases that have happened since the founding of America. The one thing we all seem to over look is the fact the first amendment is only for the Federal Government, and not the individual States.

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

See the first word there, Congress? Well, that’s the United States congress; not Florida state or any other state you happen to live in.

Although, luckily, the courts decided to broadly interpret the words of Thomas Jefferson as basis for saying the first amendment affects States as well. I wonder if the Judge knew that Thomas Jefferson didn’t even sign the constitution? Thomas Jefferson may have been involved in the American Revolution, but he wasn’t in town when the constitution was signed.

Michelle Noctor

I have a friend named Michelle Noctor. She lives in West Palm Beach, Florida. Well, around that area. I’m not sure on the exact city because I’m a guy and I will never remember that stuff. She recently asked me to look into her internet reputation and to see how much it will cost to clear it up. Not that she has a bad internet reputation, but that, well, in this day and age you need to keep an eye on it.

What did Michelle Noctor’s Internet reputation look like?

She didn’t really have one. Besides the usual pages, like Facebook or Twitter. There was just a whole bunch of nothing. I suggested that she start blogging.
