"There But for the Grace of God - Go I !"

The PIC ? Even a She-Wolf Takes Care of Her Own! But, what caused Ancient Rome's Demise? GREED? TOO MANY ORGIES? TOO MANY WARS? NOT TAKING CARE OF ONE ANOTHER?













WE - Are The ‘THEM’


© - Tom Hyland - 1/3/12

My remarks to Regis on his latest Post:
‘Society, Homelessness, and Bleach’


SOCIETY -

You are certainly right about that part - SELFISH ... Each of us, as individuals are too busy 'eking' out a living for ourselves and immediate families that we are unable, or unwilling, to invest time in helping other members. WE - the 'Silent Majority' Middle Class are the greatest numbers, say 80% just for choosing a figure - are not really 'silent' at all - we are the best 'BITCHERS' - constantly complaining about the Upper 10% Rich, and the Lower 10 % Poor!

HOMELESS -

Again, correct! I wholeheartedly agree - 'Round 'em up, feed, shelter, clothe them, train 'em, and put 'em to WORK again! Welcome back to the 'RAT-RACE' you 'escapees!'

In Baltimore ALONE - there are Over 35,000 run-down, rat-infested Vacant Homes - as well as huge abandoned buildings that once were: factories, warehouses, businesses, schools, et cetera - simply ‘Rotting Away.’

Absolutely No Reason for people to live like animals, in cardboard boxes!

Obviously, the government and all its Bureaucracies at all levels cares Not to See this, let alone DO anything about it. WE - that same Middle Class - must stop being just BITCHERS - and become DOERS! Like the disaster area of New Orleans after Katrina, each and every city, town, burg all across America NEEDS a Re-Birth of HOPE - via Re-Habilitation - One Person, One Family, One Home at a time - only achievable through Cooperation to Restore COMMUNITY!

BLEACH ? -

This is the actual 'Tough One' - although I believe your statements were merely 'tongue-in-cheek' - relegating 'GOD' down to a household cleanser is a bit much to 'swallow'! Could the answer simply be as simple as to Stop Spilling Stuff and Making Stains? Probably would get more Results Sooner!

"God Helps Those Who Help Themselves!"

As a society, WE sure as Hell haven't been Doing much of That - have WE?

So - here we are - Full Circle - back to the real 'Problem' ...
and its own Solution, or Answer ... SOCIETY! US ! That very same Majority - the Middle Class!

"What Goes around, Comes around!"

Government has FAILED to do it!
The Poor CAN'T do it!
The Rich WON'T do it!

Their Philanthropic 'Contributions' are usually 'grants' or 'funds' set up in their Own Names to get a 'Tax Write-Off' and/or an attempt at immortality by putting their Names up on Campus Buildings, Libraries, Hospital 'Wings' and other such Futilities!

As Puck once wisely commented: "What Fools These Mortals Be!"

I remember an old Pogo cartoon where Walt Kelley has his possum say "We have met the enemy, and he is us..." More truth than poetry here.

GREED? TOO MANY ORGIES? TOO MANY WARS? NOT TAKING CARE OF ONE ANOTHER?

Alas, all of the above. We spent over $800 Billion on the war in Iraq - more than we spent on WWII.

Mitt Romney just spent $10 Million to win the Iowa Caucus, by 8 votes. And in reality, this caucus means nothing. Just imagine the enormous amounts of money that will be spent in this coming election.

What Fools These Mortals Be.

I haven't caught up to Regis' post so this is out of sequence potentially.

It is a rarity that government will do anything better than "us"
Despite the advances of FEDeX OR UPS, I still believe in the US Postal Service.

For social programs they basically suck only because they try to cure ailments that government should not have to solve, though it may have caused. The cure is not a government issue it is a human issue exacerbated by government meddling. Whole generations have become charges of government caretakers and I am sick of paying the bill! Patrick
