Some people are addicted to money and they spend every waking hour of their lives thinking how to make even more money. But most people view money and the things that it buys as a nearly fair payment for doing their job whatever that may be and they’re satisfied with that. The trouble with the system is that the people who make great amounts of the stuff have decided that they should be dubbed the best and the brightest and therefore society should reward them by making it possible for them to make even more money by lowering their taxes. They excuse being that they the best and the brightest will then invest in even more factories and retail outlets and provide even more jobs for the worst and the dumbest. That’s you and me.
The W&Ds ( you and me ) think that life should be fun and so we party a lot when we have the time and we don’t want to think about new schemes to make money all the time because its almost football season and everybody is getting tee shirts this year. In other words we think that life is more, much more than just making money. “The love of money is the root of all evil” some great philosopher once said.
There is a great danger lurking beneath this surface. An that is that as the B&Bs scheme and plan and finagle until they get even richer and that makes the difference between the wealth of the B&Bs and the W&Ds greater, and that’s sad because sooner or later we of the W&D persuasion are going to have to cut of their heads with our Acme Wear ever Guillotines at least this is the way its been working so far. You see its not the amount in dollars that make us poor or rich its the difference between the poor and rich plus price inflation that finally gets us upset and then there we go again sharpening the G-blade as we call it.
The wealthy can only use so many of the things that money can buy and so their surplus wealth becomes locked away in investments. When we get an unexpected thousand or so we have fun and buy things we need and the money goes round and round doing a lot of people a lot of good. Since they can only swim in one of their swimming pools at a time and can only drive one of their Porches at a time their half a dozen other pools and cars do no good at all. In other words the B&Bs are screwing up the system.
Anyway that’s what I always say.
