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!

Is the term (the Power of Whiteness) racist?

In a recent posting or article this person tries to make a case that racism plays a part in the Boston bombings of some kind? But when we allow ourselves to only see people as small groups, or paint people into them, we become separated from being an effective tool to enact change in our surroundings. Let’s not confuse ourselves with facts of history, that racism did exist, still exists to some extent, but society has indeed made great strides in changing it. Not to recognize this, is to be somewhat closed-minded. Changing people doesn’t happen at a snap of ones fingers. It is also just as closed-minded to want more change to take place, when everyone on all sides have allowed themselves to act in a way that could be seen by the other group as being a kind of watered down racism. Anyone who makes judgments based on colors of individuals is not making judgments based on the content of character. So to Tim Wise article, this is what he wrote…

Terrorism and Privilege:

Understanding

the Power of Whiteness

By Tim Wise

 As the nation weeps for the victims of the horrific bombing in Boston yesterday, one searches for lessons amid the carnage, and finds few. That violence is unacceptable stands out as one, sure. That hatred — for humanity, for life, or whatever else might have animated the bomber or bombers — is never the source of constructive human action seems like a reasonably close second.

But I dare say there is more; a much less obvious and far more uncomfortable lesson, which many are loathe to learn, but which an event such as this makes readily apparent, and which we must acknowledge, no matter how painful.

He goes on to say. “It is a lesson about race, about whiteness, and specifically, about white privilege.”

1)     Does this sound like a person that sees people, all people in the same way, free from the view of color and from the judgments thereof? Where is the open-mindedness to allow  self to judge the content of character when people have been per-boxed into colored groups? He goes on to point out a list of white criminals to make some point that radical white    people have done evil things in the name of some flawed ideology.

White privilege is knowing that if the bomber turns out to be white, he or she will be viewed as an exception to an otherwise non-white rule, an aberration, an anomaly, and that he or she will be able to join the ranks of Tim McVeigh and Terry Nichols and Ted Kaczynski and Eric Rudolph and Joe Stack and George Metesky and Byron De La Beckwith and Bobby Frank Cherry and Thomas Blanton and Herman Frank Cash and Robert Chambliss and James von Brunn and Robert Mathews and David Lane and Michael F. Griffin and Paul Hill and John Salvi and James Kopp and Luke Helder and James David Adkisson and Scott Roeder and Shelley Shannon and Dennis Mahon and Wade Michael Page and Byron Williams and Kevin Harpham and William Krar and Judith Bruey and Edward Feltus and Raymond Kirk Dillard and Adam Lynn Cunningham and Bonnell Hughes and Randall Garrett Cole and James Ray McElroy and Michael Gorbey and Daniel Cowart and Paul Schlesselman and Frederick Thomas and Paul Ross Evans and Matt Goldsby and Jimmy Simmons and Kathy Simmons and Kaye Wiggins and Patricia Hughes and Jeremy Dunahoe and David McMenemy and Bobby Joe Rogers and Francis Grady and Demetrius Van Crocker and Floyd Raymond Looker and Derek Mathew Shrout, among the pantheon of white people who engage in (or have plotted) politically motivated violence meant to terrorize and kill, but whose actions result in the assumption of absolutely nothing about white people generally, or white Christians in particular.

2)     The writer’s own point of view must see these white people on this list as hiding among conservative, Christian political groups that have tended towards public displays of violence or terror.  But was this a jaded view, a political over sight to have left out all of the violence of people of the liberal left mind-set? Making a list of violent people doesn’t prove a theory. It proves that you have taken the time to make a colored list of violent people but nothing less. But I also see there is at least one left leaning liberal democrat of white fame. A self-professed American unapologetic bomber, a member of the weatherman underground, a person responsible of the same acts of violence to create terror in the minds of people and a killer of innocent people as well–Bill Ayers. A man who on 9-11 said, “he wasn’t sorry for his part in the bombings.” OH to mention in passing… He is also just a friend of the current president of the United States of America. Just a fact, nothing less.

He goes on to say…

And white privilege is being able to know nothing about the crimes committed by most of the terrorists listed above — indeed, never to have so much as heard most of their names — let alone to make assumptions about the role that their racial or ethnic identity may have played in their crimes.

In short, white privilege is the thing that allows you (if you’re white) — and me — to view tragic events like this as merely horrific, and from the perspective of pure and innocent victims, rather than having to wonder, and to look over one’s shoulder, and to ask even if only in hushed tones, whether those we pass on the street might think that somehow we were involved.

3)     I have never known anyone like this as he describes with these kinds of attitudes towards others. But that isn’t saying that this doesn’t exist. I stand by what I have tried to point out already. If we don’t change ourselves with the way we see people, using common sense, and critical thinking, then the whole of society continues to slowly decay farther into becoming divided by race, racism, and the division of colors. When we all can recognize evil does exist in the hearts, minds, and soils of every person no matter the color of organ; then at that time we can be better guardians of our own reputations, better teachers to our youth, have a greater sense of responsible that our personal individual actions will impact what comes after us in the world we leave behind.

The fact is we are in a war of education, not open uncontrolled actions! If the terms of blackness or whiteness can be taken as to color specific or even racist/ Why do we allow ourselves to use them publicly or privately? We all are educators or teachers to our youth.  If we continue to promote mind-sets (even behind closed doors) like the ones in this article, then the best we can expect out of society is more of a managed decay. The only question then is—who is going to manage with any success when values individually compost away, with compromise. At some point we must except that racism only stops one person at a time. The hard part is standing on principles, in the face of people with an angry mob mentality that also exists within elements of the different ethnical groups, that aren’t looking to be an equal… but superior.

Third world transformation of the USA

Do you remember just what was meant when Mr. Obama said? “The transformation of America.”?

 Update Houston; an assistant U.S. Attorney who has been prosecuting 34 members of the white supremacist Aryan Brotherhood has suddenly announced he is withdrawing from the case because of what he called “security concerns.”

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Hileman didn’t say what those concerns were.

But a friend of his – who happens to be one of the lawyers for the defense in the case, thinks he’s probably worried about his family.

If government employees are in fear of doing their jobs, of prosecuting the worsted of the worsted in criminals because of personal threats, or “security concerns.” then where do all of the citizens of this country stand? How is it possible for the government to protect us?

I’m personally tired of the government or their spokes puppets standing at the podium and calling for new gun regulations, like back ground checks for the law-abiding citizen who wish to purchase a legal and 2nd amendment protected gun. Not that I’m against regulation, but what I’m against is an increase of regulations, and over regulation, like that of also implementing a national data base that can and more than likely will be abused by government at some point in time in the future.

I seem to remember what Washington said of the government, ” It is evil, but sadly a necessary evil.”

The government puppet and chief said the other day (paraphrased) “We need to have back ground checks to make the country safer from gun violence….” They (as in the liberal mind-set) still see the “GUN” as the problem? When the problem is with people possessing a normal state of mind. The criminal element is a small segment of society, which has a false belief in the tenants of unrestrained ability’s in their actions against others.

Think of it–the government thinks it can keep its citizenry safe from all kinds of dangers, by eliminating guns! But the problem is not with the implementation of some regulation/law/limitation. But the problem is with some of the population that will not ever subjugate themselves to following laws, and regulations of the land. Who are these people? How will the government best control these people, while protecting the freedoms and liberties of the law-abiding? There isn’t any population testing available in make any determinations, who will act within the laws of the land or who will not, until a law is broken?

In third world country’s law-abiding people are in-between a rock and a hard place. The government who makes the laws and the criminal elements who act with little concern for them. In this update from Houston, it shows that there is fear within the government legal justice system, whose job it is to in force the laws of the land. But violent criminal elements are acting out to intimidate the system in their favor. Stories like this are all too often recurring in any third world country. Google any third world country, and see for yourself. Of course you will also see that in these country’s people have lost their rights to protect themselves, depending totally on the government. Would you trust the Mexican legal justice system? Remembering just who has the weapons, and who does not have them, and whether the government is or isn’t corrupt. Does it surprise anyone why people come across the border illegally into the USA?

Why would we then trust in a government in this country saying, for all intents and purposes “We the government will protect you.” This same body of political puppets will not protect you by securing the borders, but demands of you to give up your own protection of yourself. Have we forgotten that no one will ever arrive from the government just in the nick of time, just before an act of violence towards you is committed?

It seems we have all kinds of money to barrow, and waste, yet not enough to pay for a super hero like super-man who always arrived in a nick of time, along with his can of whip-ass, as his weapon to swiftly dispensed swift justice towards those armed criminals of the day. Until that day, let the criminal element worry what is behind closed doors? Because it certainly isn’t super-man. With this story out of Houston they point towards a more violent criminal element as being responsible…

“In fact, there are experts who say this looks more like the work of a Mexican drug cartel. But whatever it is, to see this kind of violence happening here in America, it’s like we suddenly woke up in a third world country – except with better plumbing.”

The more we change ourselves into a governmental protected class, the less protection we will have. The more we have politicians espousing the abilities of protecting you so you don’t have to. We will resemble a third world nation where protection comes at a price no matter who’s supposedly offering it.

If the government could protect anyone except from a military conflict of some kind. Why wouldn’t they choose to protect their own employees involved in the legal justice system, from violent crime before it could happen to them? It is hard to ask the government to protect us, when we have stories like this one, which demonstrate they usually arrive after the fact.

What country IS this& http://mynw.me/YVCaFC

Safety hostage takers! Presidential thievery! And the sequester.

Presidential thievery through the use of red meat rhetoric as the weapon of choice and practices of policies within the sequester is coming to you soon! We must be prepared to act as informed voters to these subject matters. Because acting like A.D.D. voters of the low informed kind, is of no good to the defence of the nations liberty’s.

With the negatives to the sequester looming, how will it affect the economy, seems to be the only debate among politicians? No one is interested in making a real effort in discovering how best to avoid the negatives within the sequester, just the magnification of them. Mr. Obama solution to his created problem seems to be, emphasizing the problems and presenting the other political party in the most negative lime light, through the use of red meat rhetoric as the weapon of choice and practices. Mr. Obama, who would rather choose to party, celebrate, or vacation, then in finding solutions himself. His offerings, presented to the economic Gods of socialism, inflict maximum pain on the population while common sense is being quickly swept under the rug, hoping that no one will noticed.

Under the flag of procrastination our government governs one crisis into many more. In a blink-of-an-eye Mr. Obama is just now realizing that we have to do something. like a kid who is realizing that he has a science project do in days,  and has wasted almost all of his time, finely decides to do something. His reaction; Chooses to blame others for his own procrastination.

A look at the cuts and the chilling impact the administration says they would have on the economy goes like this. Find the most uncomfortable services that the public will most likely complain about and cut them relentlessly….

-Defense: Troops at war would be protected, but there’d be fewer Air Force flying hours, less training for some Army units and cuts in naval forces.

-Health: The National Institutes of Health would lose $1.6 billion, trimming cancer

-Food and agriculture: About 600,000 low-income pregnant women and new mothers would lose food aid and nutrition education

-Homeland Security: Fewer border agents

transportation: Most of the Federal Aviation Administration’s 47,000 employees would face furloughs, including air traffic controllers,

-Environment: Diminished Environmental Protection Agency monitoring of oil spills,

-Labor: More than 3.8 million people jobless for six months or longer could see their unemployment benefits reduced by as much as 9.4 percent.

-Housing: The Department of Housing and Urban Development said about 125,000 poor households could lose benefits from the agency’s Housing Choice Voucher program and risk becoming homeless.

-Not to mention other idle threats made to the citizens of this nation, like Joe Biden who said (paraphrased), “An increase of rape and violent crimes may be on the rise without increased spending on police officers and other public safety services.” As the justification for more uncontrolled, unwise, wasteful spending.

Just a good reason to have control of your God-given rights, and not the government taking them away, like their attempts with the second amendment.

But then we have hostage takers in office, where they would rather take some needed services, placing them in a so to speak head-lock, and placing a gun to those services heads, demand more of the same reckless spending on your children’s credit card issued by the bank of China, or else say good-by to these services!

What kind of politicians uses these kinds of tactics against the people of his or her’s own nation? It isn’t any good long-term policies or of any good for the people. But more bad policies piled up against or upon past bad policies, all the while risking the people’s safety, by the same people, sworn to protect and up hold their safety. In other words, these politicians are threatening the safety because they refuse to do the job of, cutting waste from the government’s budget, in so doing they threaten, instead of protecting the growth of the economy. Cutting the waste out of government or shrinking the size of the same would be limiting to the tax burden on the people, and pro-growth.

There is no differences to our modern-day politicians, and modern-day mugger’s on the streets of Chicago. Everyone knows that mugger’s are breaking the law and acting without human decency, the other uses the power over the people justifying their own actions of theft, through making laws that destroys human dignity, good will, and trust.

Mr. Obama created the sequester, rather than now excepting the blame for a bad policy and idea, as well as acting like an adult person in finding solutions. His actions are that of just implementing political leverage. As the head of the Democratic party, the commander and chief of thug politics, and political thievery, Mr. Obama has shown his true colors of Chicago politics, and corruption of the political proses. Policies like this will only cause the people to make every effort in protecting themselves from the long arm of the government, causing a farther slow-down in the economy at worse, or more of the same at best.

With Obama in office, the people shouldn’t expecting the government to protect the people from the barbarians at the gates, it will be more like….. Pay your toll (higher taxes) for more of the same wasteful spending, or be thrown to the mercies of those barbarians within our gates.

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“.
