Liberalism for the comfortably numb.

Liberalism for the comfortably numb.

We have slipped down that slippery slope of liberalism to a point where we as a society are engaging in an open holocaust against “Words”!

The mad scientist dissection is nothing short of a modern mass murders dismemberment of the English language and discarding the verbal bodies in the blast furnace of political correctness. Yes some words have just got to go! The world is full of words that support, hate, and are just unwanted in general because of that childhood saying which turns out to be wrong—“Sticks and stones may break my bones but words may never hurt Me.” expressed by a thin-skinned liberal.

With the loopy lexicon of modern times today’s society has become hyper offended over what seems to be a speck in society’s eye, missing completely the blinding beam being pushed into everyone else’s eyes through political correctness. There are those people that are on a crusade to vanquish words from our vocabulary that could also offend people. Those kinds of people that are offended far too easily, or the ones who run around just looking for offences and then complain, or the thin-skinned who also have a problem with self-esteem. It is one in the same in the whirlwind of shallow thinking within the minds of liberals. Now just think for a moment, how easy it is to become offended because those types are unwilling to build up their own self-esteem? Does society have a greater responsibility to caress, cuddle, or even embrace anyone’s low self-esteem, then regulate everyone else’s life to your pleasures?

Can we eliminate one offence without offending another, even in the slightest way? You can please some of the people some of the time, but never all of the people all of the time.

How can fisherman, clergyman, mankind, journeyman, and freshman somehow reflect gender biases in a negative way? Should we then change “Freshman” to become “First-year-student?

SEATTLE, April 22 (Reuters) – Washington state’s governor signed into law on Monday the final piece of a six-year effort to rewrite state laws using gender-neutral vocabulary, replacing terms such as “fisherman” and “freshman” with “fisher” and “first-year student.”

“This was a larger effort than I had envisioned. Mankind means man and woman,” said Democratic state Senator Jeanne Kohl-Welles of Seattle.

Democratic state Senator Jeanne Kohl-Welles of Seattle never considered that for the liberal left it seems never to be content with bending, distorting their own minds, it is about distorting yours too in an effort to bring about a feeling of self-importance, accomplishment in their minds and the hell with your feelings, your mind-set, and your offence.

The new gender-neutral references, for example, include “journey-level plumber” instead of “journeyman plumber,” “handwriting” in place of “penmanship,” and “signal operator” for “signalman.”

“There’s no good reason for keeping our legal terms anachronistic and with words that do not respect our current contemporary times,” state senator Kohl-Welles.

There isn’t any good reason, or any better terms as replacements to those old out dated words. It is for the most part a liberal war on man / men and any compound word containing them. The words “airmen” and “seaman,” for example, probably will not be changed due to objections from the military. Civil engineering terms such as “man-hole” and “man lock,” also will not be changed because no common-sense substitutes could easily be found as of yet. And so the manipulation, and the gray matter massage continues it attack on common sense and critical thinking.

Manipulation must have slipped by in the first wave of attacks on “men” with the first three letters of that one?

Waging war on the true wicked culprits of social discourse, “Men / Man”, should be held right alongside of “Women’s health”, “Women’s rights”, as being the same kind of gender bias, being too focused and gender specific, net alone containing the word “Men” within them? How this different to the gender specific words clergyman, mankind, journeyman, or even penmanship? Even the some advertisements or presentations of “Brest cancer awareness” is being pushed in a gender specific way in the public’s mind towards “Women’s health issues” as if men don’t also have issues with breast cancer. Where is the fairness? Where are the gender neutral terms to eliminate all and any biases? Should we just add small print foot notes to any words and or terms so they can escape political correctness that has run amok?

Changing terms to reflect current contemporary times has nothing to do with it. Social engineering does! Such engineering produces reluctance to have an effective opposition to political views in an unflattering way towards liberal policies. That is the goal and the tactic of the liberal left. It is about control, and their feelings of being socially superior to your small-minded conservative views. It is the attempt to eliminate personal free choice, and install command and control style socialism, forgetting all the while—“A person changed against his / her own will is of the same opinion still.”

So off-color terms like fisherman, clergyman, mankind, journeyman, freshman, and penmanship defiantly have to go immediately, whereas at the same time and instantaneously airmen, seamen, man-hole, man lock, or even women’s health, gets a temporary reprieve. Only so long as needed until we can declare a winner to this game of gray matter twister, by the presentation of the kinder gentler replacement terms to be used.

Declaring such a winner isn’t going to be easy though. In Seattle, Washington there is a movement to upstage the gender specific replacement terms with the newly unlikable terms produced by enlightened closed-minded new age liberals. Seattle bans the use of “citizen”, and “brown bag”. And you never thought just how the terms could even be offensive?

A memo which was circulated within local government in Washington State, before being leaked to local TV station KOMO News, advised state workers that they should refrain from using such phrases in official business.

According to the memo, the word ‘citizen’ is offensive to those Seattlelites who are residents in the city, but not US citizens.

The phrase ‘brown bag’ is offensive for its having been used as a verb during racial segregation in the United States. When deciding whether or not a black person was light-skinned enough to enter a private residence, servants would ‘brown bag’ them: using a paper grocery bag to gauge their skin tone.

The memo’s author Elliott Bronstein, who works in the city’s Office for Civil Rights, wrote: “Luckily we’ve got options. For ‘citizens’, how about ‘residents’?”.

“To replace ‘brown bag’”, he continued, tackling the offensive phrase that employees use to describe their packed lunches, “we can go with ‘lunch-and-learn’ or ‘sack lunch’”.

And to think the director of the Office for civil Rights, as a real job is to keep the perception of the never-ending war and civil rights alive, and on front page. I am sure all of the left leaning liberals are just propping themselves up with accolades and at-a-boy slaps on the back, along with dreams of being an Olympian gold medalist, “The mental twister champion of the world”. Of course all of their efforts are fueled by buying lunch from the somewhat racy business that also goes by the name “Brown Bag’s” lunch cart. Located just outside of the governmental offices that helps to produce, and promotes this war on words.

I suppose if the Washington States “legalized pot” doesn’t turn your brain to mush, then there are always mental games that will….. Like finding a suitable replacement for the term “Man hole” as an accomplishment in turning these current contemporary times into an unforgiving, vengeful verbal holocaust, soothed by dancing butterfly feelings of being stupidly comfortably numb.

Chris Matthews’ Sunday program, The Chris Matthews Show has been cancelled.

Chris Matthews’ Sunday program, The Chris Matthews Show has been cancelled.

Chris Matthews wasn’t a great talent on MSNBC, but resembled a manure-spreader of political thought.

In what other media described as the “long running show,” was little more than NBC throwing lots of crap against the wall, hoping it would stick.

Negative politics are like that. A crap happy type of person that throws crap for a living, then ducks the truth, and dodges facts in their reporting, as their personal effort in wear less crap on their suit at the end of the day seems to be the game within political theater. A theater where Chris Matthews lived, but then pigs like to wallow in the muck, and Matthews seemed happiest when he was up to his lower lip in muck making waves in the hope in dimming the light of truth.

It was bound to happen though. Finley media has come to its senses by pushing Chris aside, and hopefully replacing him with a more truthful talent or a more entertaining show at the least? Have they finely realized that the truth has no agenda? Or am I just dreaming here? Something Chris seemed to never fully understand, but then you can’t blame an animal that hasn’t evolved yet. After all he felt a tingling feeling running up his leg when Mr. Obama was elected. With closer examination, he would have realized that he was tinkling on an electric fence within the political theater he lives. Now that the animal has left the barn it is time to close the barn door.”The final episode will run on July 21 to a viewership of…Chris Matthews’ TiVo.”

Too mooch, or not to mooch! (Obama-nomics; chief designer of “Pimp my pantry”)

Wrenching a world apart with failed political policies, leaving people pointing finger at each other calling names, “Well you’re a taker, and I’m a maker.” one side calls out.

The other side responds, “No you’re a greedy rich person, and we are the people in need!”

This is where the people of this once great nation have ended up after Obama-nomics?  Once people came to this nation only wanting an equal opportunity. Now they come hoping for an un-equaled amount of handouts, while taking their time to find some personal footing. Can you blame the people? I blame the politicians! After all we the America people, have come to know this America, through the eyes of the rest of the poor world, now flooding into this nation looking for charity, if not demanding it.

At least through the distorted view of the liberal government official, that also sees the world differently out of their own guilt, paints a picture of national guilt, accusing the nation of not wanting to help people in need as their guilty manipulation. A means to grab even more power for themselves by brow beating people into feeling guilty of their accomplishments, or just being guilty for having been born an American.

What is the point of having lines on paper representing boarders, If the politicians of the day (the gate keepers) selectively choose wether or not to enforce the laws, or even locking the gates?

There used to be a requirement in order to be able to enter the country as a permanent immigrant. Today to use the term “Illegal alien” is cruel, inhuman. The progressives and the proper political correctness have created terms to be used with people who break the law in coming to America. The proper term now is “Illegal immigrant”. To lessen the personal pain of the criminal immigrant for breaking the law, or to cause guilty feelings of the rest of the American people, because of their immigrant heritage? Immigrants of the past used to come here offering skills and looking to exchange those skills for equal free opportunity’s. Today a good portion of immigrants are offering little skill other than a potential democratic vote, for all of the free stuff they can haul away in those hands of opportunity.

I mean, what would you do if you came home from work and found 20 people in your living room and you didn’t know where they came from despite the law of the land? When you complained about the problem, you only discovered that those laws on the books were only selectively enforced. When you complained some more about the added costs you were experiencing, you were deemed as a greedy bastard. The political correct view, of you, Joe Blow Citizen seems to be, a hater of poor people.

Under Obama life isn’t too far from that. Speaking to power and telling them that we are broke, out of money and adding too much debt to the national balance sheet. Just goes un-heard, or worse ignored? They (The powerful in government) respond with. “What? We are the richest nation on earth, because of that  we need to help the poor!”

In fact I have never known a single so-called rich person, or a nation, past or present, that has also given away their riches faster and faster than their incomes, then borrowed even more money and they still some how remained the status of being “Rich”, nor have they no matter how well-intentioned ever reduced the needs of the poor.

Since 1963, the year the policy “The war on poverty” was conceived, American politicians have spent 16 trillion dollars on helping the poor, hoping to reduce poverty in America. Today we have a national debt of the same, with an even larger segment of the population needing help from the government. It is clear, government policies create dependency. This in a nation that celebrates on the 4th of July–“Independence”! Go figure.

What is more upsetting then poor people’s needs, legal or illegal, is the politicization of misconstrued facts. I’m trying to be nicer and kinder these days so I used “Misconstrued” instead of “flat-out liars about the facts”! Mr. Obama closed down the White house tours, and blamed the sequester, then followed up with delay’s of air traffic. Making sure that comfortable delays would be realized by the traveler as a gift of the furloughed air traffic controllers in major cities. Totally leaving the Washington DC air traffic unhampered, unaffected, controllers un-furloughed. who’d a thought? It shows that this president is willing to hurt the American people and the economy, for political points, for the sake of winning unreasonable, unpopular, manipulated political arguments.

After all it is only the rich who travel, and they can afford some pain to help the poor, right?

With all of this going around the various news agencies, where is the news on the “Food stamp recruiters” trying to give away the last bit of money left in the treasury before the American people truly realize that government is truly the enemy of the people and any of the people’s wealth? Yes that’s right, food stamp recruiters trying to get people to sign up for what is termed— as their benefits that their entitled to. So these stamp recruiters have been seen around the golf courses in Florida recruiting retired people. Honestly people who play golf don’t need food stamps!  With the sequester in place, where are these programs getting their money from, not only for the food give aways but also to pay the recruiters, when we supposedly can’t even pay air traffic controllers?

Yep! You get the picture all right. Mr. Obama couldn’t manage himself out of a wet paper bag, facts are, in truth he is the mismanage-er-in-chief. He and he alone is the chief designer of “Pimp my pantry” with all of the free food giveaway’s. Why are these well-intentioned programs also being abused by people? Why can they use their benefits at their local strip clubs/bars, casinos, or even selling their stamps on-line so they could use the money on who knows what? Why is it a cruel abuse, to denied a poor person the ability’s of seeing a nude women, when that money should have bought food and diapers for their kids? Why can they do this without prosecutions? Call it, the Obama bucks give away! Much like the Obama phones of yesterday. Now who’s guilty of being “Greedy”?

But the richest nation on earth isn’t out of money, until the redistribution of the term “rich” is complete? Of course there will still be rich people here in the good old USA, in fact more than the rest of the world? It is just re-applying the term rich to people who will have a lot less wealth after Obama is through. So what happens to the poor people of the world? Will the term “Poor” be massaged into a new term less demeaning? Will poor people go the way of the dinosaur? Will poor people still be making their demands of the socialists of the world until wealth is totally destroyed, and misery is the new equally?

It seems when the value of money is destroyed, political clout, such as food stamps, will become the new unit of exchange to be used?

When the American people realize that they can vote into office people that will benefit themselves without having to make a reasonable effort for themselves; that is when the spark of freedom will have been extinguished, and mob rule will replace rule of law.

“The fastest way to destroy your enemy in a modern world, with less cost then fighting a war, is controlling the food supply! Every nation will fall when the people demand more food then supply’s exist.” paraphrased from a speech that Henry Kissinger gave at the end of the Vietnam war. The same applies to when a government gives food away; who’s going to receive that benefits and then vote to end that policy? Do these people realize that they are selling their freedoms of tomorrow?

Should middle schools be teaching lesbian kissing??

News report from; Red Hook N.Y.

Parents of children attending a Red Hook, N.Y., middle school are outraged after a recent anti-bullying presentation at Linden Avenue Middle School.

The workshop for 13- and 14-year-old girls focused on homosexuality and gender identity. They were also taught words such as “pansexual” and “genderqueer.”

Parents say their daughters were told to ask one another for a kiss, and they say two girls were told to stand in front of the class and pretend they were lesbians on a date.

Middle School Girls Told to Ask for Lesbian Kiss During Class http://www.charismanews.com/culture/39237-middle-school-girls-told-to-ask-for-lesbian-kiss-during-class via @sharethis

Why was this only reportedly for 13-and 14-year-old girls, why not the boys as well? Not that we support such behaviors in a public school system as part of a well-rounded education. If this is the kind of thing to support within our school systems, shouldn’t we also be supportive of gay students acting as if they were straight, telling them in a class room setting to kiss the opposite sex? Would that be over the top, or cruel? Is this what passes for a good education? What does this kind of instruction really do for these young minds?

Can someone be taught a sexual orientation, or is it just a complex interplay of genetic factors? If we were to except that there is a genetic factor to what defines a person’s sexual orientation; then this kind of class room education, as was done in the Red Hook N.Y middle school would be cruel, unusual, insulting, demeaning, to those school age girls that wouldn’t be genetically predisposed to such orientation. If there could be a factor that sexual orientation is learned, instead of being genetic, then what was this school thinking with the exercise? Is it a schools responsibility to produce more of a certain type of people sexually, or just to provide a well-rounded education to all types of people regardless of sexual orientation?

Even in that bastion of liberalism “California” They have “Ban Therapies That Try to Turn Gay People Straight”. Why any schools would then try to turn “Straight People Gay”, with lessens that resemble sexual experimentation on young impressionable minds?

California to Ban Therapies That Try to Turn Gay People Straight http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2012/05/08/california-to-ban-therapies-that-try-to-turn-gay-people-straight/?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=story&utm_campaign=Share%20Buttons

It simply is amazing that these days young girls can without parental guidance; get free birth control, and abortions services. But can’t bring aspirin to school, can’t sign a contract to buy a car or rent an apartment…and so on. They can’t get married without parental permission, but society supports if a mistake is made, welfare services for expectant mothers whether they are living at home or not. Schools are becoming a place where parents are forced to send their kids, to receive an orientation that undermines the family structure, religious value systems or even morals. A far cry from what was intended to be a public education, an education that would consist of reading, writing, arithmetic, and sciences…ect. To now day’s what has become, “Sexual Social Design”, through a social engineering within the liberal-mind set. Freedom of choice, individual or otherwise isn’t an option with liberal policies. Unless people start to defend their rights and demand a change, this will become the standards in the future, or worse!

the true war on poverty.

The use & excuse of slavery must end. I’d like a laundry list of Black accomplishments taught in schools all over the country as the true black history of America. Black people need to see how historically they’ve been, a success in America despite parties. I’m not saying “our” history is more important… it’s that Blacks need a newer reference point of American values than what occurred through slavery. Black people need to know that they don’t need government programs in order to succeed. Exactly… we need references where Black people were successful without Government dependency. A real US History explained in a true positive light, that will inspire and rekindle human potential, and the pursuit of excellence, over that of being a new kept people destined for lower wage jobs. We need to rise above that education system that teaches the values of the political race baiters. But so it seems that neither party is really interested in edifying Black people to their contributions includes the NAACP, as worthwhile contributions in making improvements to American society as a whole. So the Democrats and the Republicans must assume equal guilt for the continued human misery and wasted moneys spent on the war on poverty over the past 40 years. We should stop complaining about the wrongs of our ancestors and that of slavery, for those things we can do nothing about. But this generation must stop hiding their guilt with respect to the war on poverty in hopes to hide this generation wrong just long enough so as not to be held accountable for them.

Destroying imaginations?

In the world of education, presented by educators that also draw their paychecks from the federal and state governments, it is plan to see they mostly posses a leaning towards a liberal mindset. So is it good to question motive, if any, to their teaching methods, in an effort to avoided a public education that resembles more of a indoctrination to a liberal philosophy, over unbiased pursuit of knowledge based on truth?

At what point is it too much of an education to give to developing minds, and who should decide if so? Can an education do more damage to a human mind, then good?

Colorado second-grader suspended for throwing IMAGINARY grenade during recess http://soc.li/QKLVU5V

Aren’t schools supposed to provide educations within a supervised safe environment, for purposes of expanding young minds no matter what the age of that student? Isn’t an education in part a shared responsibility and the job of parents, along with teachers, to inspire imaginations of young people to dream the impossible, to look behind the curtain of life with curiosity?

Every great thinker and inventor has used an active imagination, driving the individual to dream, to innovate, in making dreams and unknown technologies into realities produced in the present. Also known by catch phrase as “Moving forwards”.

An education is bridling the power of thought, inspired to action, in moving towards that future yet imagined. Without the active use of imaginations in our world, we wouldn’t have computers, or all sorts of entertainments, or even books to read, net alone things that are common place for most people used daily without thought, like cars. So when a school system limits a child’s imagination, are they not also robbing that child of their education, or at least damaging or retarding that child’s human potential in an unmeasured way, by potentially crushing their ability’s, or willingness to imagination farther?

Even John Lennon had a song called “Imagine” where people were called to imagine a world different to the present world, different to the world that existed when he wrote the song, different to today’s standards. Had he been this little boy in school, he too could have been suspended, by expressing unpopular imaginations. Can an imagination go too far, and becomes just as dangerous as a weapon?

So no matter where we stand on education, pro or con, we should expect a healthy dose of imagination to be encouraged in our youth, for the pursuit of a well-rounded education, from a school system charged with turning out an educated adult. An education devoid of including, critical thought, or thinking outside of the box, without also including in that realm the encouragement of the use of imagination. Is not really an education, but a political correct indoctrination, a type of brain washing through emotional reasoning or emotional peer pressure in administering a popular education. Children are at a disadvantage in being able to reason philosophically with adults, therefore venerable to the political or liberal presentations masked as an unbiased education.

Who decides what is a good imagination or a bad one, when we are discussing, or defining the thoughts or actions of a child that creates it. Are we to believe that people are born evil or good, so actions of said people are then predetermined? Is there at some point in time, an age of accountability, to what may be considered right and wrong things to imagine? Who then should decide, or teach what is or isn’t proper imagination? The thought police?

Colorado second-grader suspended for throwing IMAGINARY grenade during recess http://soc.li/QKLVU5V

In remembering what it was like to be a child, when everything seemed unlimited, where the many possibilities were always possible, where the impossible wasn’t recognized as obstacles, but just a short-term delays on our way to those destinations of personal greatness. Have we forgotten what satisfaction, or a sense of accomplishment felt like, even those imagined which inspired us in making an effort? Why should we then throw the political correct wet blanket over a child’s ability to dream, or to imagine, because what others only see as an imagined threat?

In our world of political correctness what damage have we created within this little boy’s education, or personal views of what is good or bad, what is good or evil, or which is stronger, or who will prevail in any struggle? Even in all of the movies that Hollywood produces there are elements of good and evil, where good always wins. In today’s world there isn’t any question in the argument, the only question that remains is who will define it? What is truly shocking is the carefree attitude of this boy’s parent in accepting her schools actions with regards to the education received, by the veiled attempt of that school in destroying youthful imagination, without parental outrage.

Super heroes who are battling evil, or who are trying to re-adjusting the balance of power between good and evil, in the support of a positive moral compass equally for everyone. Should not only be found in comic books designed for the imaginations of kids, but displayed in real life actions. Parents should never lose sight of their super hero status. Those bigger than life, those real life characters within parents, who in their childs eyes are always to be their super heroes; those same people whose jobs are to be defending by preserving the rights of kids, to be a kid, allowing them to enjoy their innocence, over that of being corrupted at a young age by a social brain washing of political correctness.

Parents are therefore that last line of defence, that supper hero re-adjusting that balance of power, that will tug and pull at their childs emotions. So imagine for a moment if you will, if you still have an imagination, and an unbiased willingness to use it? When has a super hero ever refuse to do those thankless jobs big and small, or allow themselves the freedom in giving in to the mindset or notion that evil will prevail? Saying to themselves,” So what is the use?” Simply because the job may be uncomfortable to do?

It is time conservatives push back respectively against the liberal mindset of political correctness, the insanity that suspends a second-grader for throwing IMAGINARY grenade during recess in Colorado, and sees nothing wrong with passing out the “morning after pill” to kids in New York schools, unknown to their parents, or with any knowledge of their medical histories of those young students receiving them.

This is the kind of mindset that has no future!!  Are we to remain free, with our liberty’s intact, to give to our children as their inheritance that same liberty that we enjoy. Then we must evoke the power of being that super hero, and imagine victory.

Greener lawns, re-adjusting the greed factor.

When is a decision made for what is in your, or your family best interest, then is publicly perceived as being greedy? Don’t we all make decisions in life with our personal best interest in mind? Where are the best price for bread, clothes, our homes and schools for our kids, what represents the best values in entertainments or even vacations? All of these decisions and others made in order to stretch the all mighty dollar in our budgets. After all, we aren’t all fat cats, millionaires or even billionaires who make some $250,000.00 per year, as defined by the government. So stretching the dollar is a must if we are to save, and invest our way into that group.

But when we become wealthy, or plain God gifted by some….. I don’t know… Talent to play a sport, and receive unreal amounts of payola, should we be looking to stretch the mighty dollar? Or should society force you into a passion by pier-pressure, to spend the money you have or make without ever deciding where the value is for yourself?

Fed up with the spike in federal and state tax hikes, Phil Mickelson hinted at “drastic changes” that would possibly involve moving his family out of his native California or toward some form of semi-retirement.

Phil Mickelson, according to Sports Illustrated, makes over $60M in 2012 and is  the country’s second highest-paid athlete.

Read more: http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/more-sports/phil-rants-recants-tax-raise-article-1.1244850#ixzz2IouvShYu

It is because of California’s progressive stance on taxing and spending uncontrolled that is. That’s why they are looking at this statement by Phil Mickelson, which is considered to be a very rich resident, or at least greedy. How dare he look to save money by not paying his fair share? Isn’t he just looking to personally take from the Californian community and economy all for himself?

Later in the week Phil Mickelson said.

“I’m not going to jump the gun, but there are going to be some (changes),” he said Sunday. “There are going to be some drastic changes for me because I happen to be in that zone that has been targeted both federally and by the state and . . . it doesn’t work for me right now.”

Isn’t that what it is all about? Government sets some rules and regulations on how to play this game of life within a social community. All the while leaving you with personal choices on the how’s, and where’s, you decide to live, or what degree your life style will be. Phil recognizes the changes in the political atmosphere, and the tax revenues required to run this attitude by governments both state and federal. He has become a target just because of his unusual high income based on his talent to play golf, and his attitude of trying to save money by not wanting to pay so high taxes. So why shouldn’t he be able to save himself some money, by deciding what product to use or buy?

Moving from state to state is just that! Indeed, a decision of style of government and the way states govern compared state to state, and what fits best for Phil, or every citizen for that matter. In the field of competition that Phil is well aware, because he competes professionally in golf.  He knows that the best products, or atmosphere, should receive the business, or the title of being the best, the champion. So why is making a statement that the tax environment isn’t working anymore for his family, a greedy stance requiring an apology? Isn’t it more an observation of what states have done to their market place, and done so with somewhat an irresponsible governance of state resources?

Phil’s apology as offered was like this….

On Monday, telling FoxNews in a statement, “Finances and taxes are a personal matter and I should not have made my opinions on them public.”

“I certainly don’t have a definitive plan at this time, but like everyone else I want to make decisions that are best for my future and my family,” Mickelson added.

Why would Phil feel, he had to offer an apology? Isn’t his words exactly what everyone is doing for themselves, trying to figure out the least amount of taxes needed to be paid. How is that not doing what is best for everyone? Did he receive some kind of threats from the state government putting him on the targeted list of making your life a miserable hell if you speak ill of the state’s situation? Or was this just a ploy by Phil to remove attention from his personal decisions, while preserving his future income from endorsements, even should he leave at some point. Either way, it seem that Phil found it necessary to offer an apology to remove a target and the public negative image of his statement that could also lead to some financial impact to his family.

But really, have we just become a society where speaking the truth needs to be apologized for?

Perhaps that’s why other high-profile mega rich people tend to give huge amounts of money to charity in a publicly announced way. Purchasing the best public insurance against negative public opinion’s, over how they chose to live life, or over what they choose to do in life for themselves. Because every decision by the rich, is considered extravagant, and therefore greedy.

So why isn’t trying to stretch your money in no different of ways, the same actions of the average citizen just as greedy? Could it be in the sure numbers of perceived income compared to your own? Is this the new definition of greed applied through changing standards? Is the public just becoming upset with the rich because of the ability of more choices in life do to their wealth? Or is it that rich people have more of everything and therefore need to share with the average person’s in order to lift all standards, or suffer being targeted as the “GREEDY RICH”!

It seem the greed exists, in looking over the fence and seeing that your neighbor has a greener lawn, and then demanding of him to apply fertilizer to your lawn….. Just because!

Greed has also changes the standards of being rich as well. Society considers being rich today, isn’t your fathers rich of being a millionaire any more, but simply having more money than I do, frequently adjusted downward in the name of being fairly compared, and maintaining “Greener lawns, and re-adjusting the greed factor“.
