Tobacco, Tattooing, and body piercing

July 10, 2006

All of these things have no practical value at all.  In fact, they do more harm than good.  Tobacco smoking, along with the practice of tattooing and body piercing come from primitive jungle dwelling Indian tribes.  Some of them also used the concept of a communal ass wiping stone. They not only thought that it would be a good idea to wipe their butts on a rock, they actually thought that it would be a good idea for the entire village to wipe their butts on the same rock.  Based on that, one could say “Tobacco smoking makes as much sense as wiping your butt on a rock”.

Flip-flop society

July 10, 2006

It is unbelievable how ignorant todays society is, it looks like that all people are concerned with today is the lowest common denominator.  Everything seems to always boil down to the simplest thing with the American public.  It would look as if putting on a proper pair of shoes is too complicated or too time consuming for most Americans.  So, therefore, flip-flops are the way to go.  Flip-flops for your feet and flip-flops for your brain.  Not the most sensible choice, but most Americans never make the most sensible choice.

 

Drugs, smoking, alcoholic beverages and fatty foods appear to very popular with a lot of people.  Apparently, when some people reach a certain weight it is not a red flag that they should do something to lose the weight.  How does someone get to weigh as much as 3, 4, or more bills?  Perhaps, by constantly over-eating and repeating the process of expanding their stomachs. Plus, not getting enough exercise or any at all, that might be it.

 

But, in this society if one has a problem they can always buy a book or take a class, along with a bunch of other dumb fat people that cant figure out how to lose weight.  Perhaps, a better educational system and national health care would help as well.  I guess for the mean time, flip-flops will have to do.

Illinois wealth and lack of funds

July 10, 2006

There always seems to be a lack of funds in Illinois, each year there is not enough money for the CTA, not enough money for the school system, and not enough money to go around in general.   Based on that, you would think that Illinois is a poor little state.  The reality is that Illinois is one of the richest states in the country.  In fact, it is the 10th richest state in the country.  Per capita income, it is the 5th richest.  One has to wonder where all the money goes, this is one of the richest states in the country, but there is always a shortage of money for state and city departments.

 

Another very interesting fact is that Illinois has the highest rate of people living in poverty.  One of the richest states in the country and the wealth distribution is clearly off balance.  That is a very grim statistic; one has to conclude that the whole state is off balance.  It is no wonder that the F.B.I raided city hall in 2005, perhaps Springfield should be next.
