| || My soapbox today;|
Is it just me or do others realize that an 8 percent unemployment rate is not a thing to complain about? Agreed, if you are the person without a job it is a big issue. And agree, even though 8 percent is not a large number, it translates into a large number of people. However, what do we expect as a nation. Do we expect 100 percent employment? Is that any where near realistic? I think a 92 percent employment rate is pretty darn good. Look around the world at people living in abject poverty because there is no employment for them, in the percentages above half. We, in this country have little to complain about, and yet we do(complain). Instead of complaining, perhaps we need to relearn the gift of helping one another through hard times, instead of being so selfish as to expect every person, at all times, to be able to provide all things for themselves. And I do not mean government programs need to help the people. I mean the people need to help each other... families need to be willing to accept sacrifice as a part of life, and a part of helping humanity.
Have we come to expect unending continual economic growth? What about ebb and tide... the natural rhythm of life? Should it be all take all the time, in one direction, or should there be give and take... ebb and flow to different parts of the world.
How selfish, and how spoiled is our nation.
Things that changed my life in my search for beliefs;
