Pride, health, sanity……….what more do we really need. I want to know!!
Materialism……what about that?…… I believe that is what drives most people nowadays. Having to have what everyone else has. That need to be looked upon as having and not wanting. Who cares if you are healthy, you can be proud that you own the latest ipad, and iphone. You have the biggest TV on the block. In my opinion it is the very thing that has ruined this country. That is right the very credit you used to obtain those items is the reason the big banks keep getting richer. While you stay indebted to them for as long as you live. Question!! Is there really any pride being shown here?!? Because it definitely ain’t healthy!!!
A conspiracy theory: (one of many I here everyday) It appears that a certain side of the fence (as it were) would love to eliminate the middle class. You would have two categories rich and poor. The rich would keep getting richer and the poor would eventually have to give in to the demands of the rich. All there struggling to get by everything they did would be nothing more than working to make the rich more powerful, until they had full control. The health of your wealth going into someone else’s pocket!!!!
So back to pride and health. If you have both of these things, it would be a lot harder for someone to keep you down. You would use your health to keep yourself working and driving to achieve the goals we all want. No!! I am not talking about the materialistic crap. I am talking about self-esteem. Self-esteem which leads to pride. Pride is then what you use to help your fellow man reach his full potential. I believe the more of us striving to reach the heights we are capable of the better. That in turn would lead to the country being in better shape.
Uh Oh…..sounds like we may need to revert back to the days when this country was still trying to establish itself.
As for the materialistic crap I referred to earlier, helping people to keep up with the Jones-es if you will. This is the main reason for the problems we are having now. Yeah!!! You heard me!!! Credit and debt go hand in hand. The more credit you have the more debt you create for yourself. All this in the name of keeping up with John and Jane Doe Jones. Where be the sanity now???
