Another Trip Into the Argument Zone
So again they called me in to take another trip into Kansas today. Set me up with pretty much the same crew of "retirees" to go with again which still baffles me to no end. I know for a fact a couple of them have had to up their blood pressure medicine after being trapped with me in a vehicle for a few hours.
So here we are. Seven of us. Five public service "retirees" who were all out and living the easy life on defined benefit pensions before they were 58, one guy who was actually a general manager for another dealership so I can't hold that against him, and good old anti-government, no one deserves a public pension me.
Can you imagine?
They just can't resist attempting to get into it with me and then can't accept the consequences of their actions.
Mostly I declined to rise to the bait today although I did get one of em riled up as he went off on a tirade about the Ferguson protesters and how the MU thing was connected. They weren't happy when after they complained about the football team being allowed to continue to go to MU pissed em off and I mentioned that they were all still glued to their TV's watching these games every Sunday though. Perhaps if they were so sick of all this power the team had they should stop giving it to them in the form of their money and time.
Needless to say they didn't like that answer anymore than the one last week about immigrants needed to pay their retirements.
I am totally convinced these days that 99% of the people out there really do think money grows on trees and the laws of action/reaction have no bearing on them what-so-ever. No one seems to actually ask themselves why something is the way it is or bother to follow the money and see who ultimately benefits.
To me a blind man should be able to see if you idolize a group for athletics or acting/singing you are at best promoting a talent that has no real use in a leadership role and at worst you are promoting the type of outrageous behavior and power trips we see happening today. Yet even after this betrayal these same complainers will throw on their black and gold and cheer adoringly while spending millions on the game.
Once again something that seems so simple to me appears to be against the very fabric of human nature in some way.
Then again I never have heard an explanation for why they feel they are entitled to retire at 54 while the private sector has to wait until 67 now either.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!
