Universal Church of Freedom Acceptance and Love - Ken's ReverendismsIn the interest of trying to do things better I want to start a blog page. The truth about intuition The more connected we are to ourselves the easier it will be to connect meaningfully to others.
Once you start to trust your intuition as a warning sign, you will find the courage to get out relationships that are hurtful. 6 a€“ Plan the day.A  Okay so you have a ring, a date, her parents permission, so now its details time. Regarding our cultural hang-ups about fantasying, didna€™t the nation resolve this back in 1976 when Jimmy Ca€™s spoke of lusting in his heart? Self-pity, a dominant characteristic of sociopaths, is also the characteristic that differentiates heroic storytelling from psychological rumination. Obsessing aloud, on the other hand, is a way of fishing for pity, a means of extorting attention. I call this anchoring, establishing a simple, physical, factual connection with present reality. Getting bogged down in old stories stops the flow of learning by censoring our perceptions, making us functionally deaf and blind to new information. Try dredging up one of your favorite stories --maybe a classic like "I'm not good enough." Treat it as a hypothesis. Evidence that contradicts your hypothesis will be hard for you to see, while to an objective observer, it's obvious ("Well, you're good enough for me, your dog, and everyone down at the bingo hall, you dumb cluck").
Whatever terrible things may have happened to you, only one thing allows them to damage your core self, and that is continued belief in them. Taking things step-by-step means working -- working hard, working scared, working through confusion and embarrassment and failure. When I become a little more ruthless with myself and a lot more present in what I have to do, I see that writing a humble column is my next step -- and I have writer's block. If ending a relationship was easy, there would not be so many songs writtenA  about ending relationships. 19.A Reassure the other person that he or she is someone with whom you have shared a great deal of joy, but not it is time to move on. Escaping the message of sex is difficult to do.A  We live in a society in which magazines, movies, and television have blurred the boundaries of propriety.
What is the real message of abstinence education?A  Proponents would like to see children place more value on marriage and family than on sex. So instead of adding more to this page where no one can respond to my opinions click on the link and read my blog. Nothing in the world of appearances can help us find love -- and detach ourselves from deception -- with the same clarity as our own inner voice.
Plan the date around what you think would be appropriate and not what you have heard about. It didna€™t seem to do much damage to his relationship with Rosalynn - at least it didna€™t reach our prying eyes through the pages of People or the National Enquirer. What goes on between two adults is their business unless one is a public official who legislates us to act one way and does just the opposite. When you talk about your experiences to shed light, you may feel wrenching pain, grief, anger, or shame. Each phrase reminds me of a concept that helps me escape the marsh: being present, learning continuously, seeking truth, and committing my energy to my real life's work. We were discussing her desire for a promotion when her gaze dropped and her voice took on a timbre both sorrowful and weirdly practiced, as though she were reciting a very depressing Pledge of Allegiance.
Once the replay button gets pushed, we no longer form new ideas or conclusions -- the old ones are so cozy. However you get to it, the moment you absorb a fact that disproves your hypothesis, you're half out of the mire.
In fact, the loop she replayed in her head was the one thing standing in her way, since evidence disconfirming her hypothesis was everywhere. I don't mean a gilt-edged proclamation from God, describing every step you are to take for the rest of your existence.
The way forward is to shake the quicksand off your feet and take one small step toward that dream. Instead, I'll focus on a saying from the Ojibwa tradition, one that deserves the attention I customarily lavish on my problems: Sometimes I go about pitying myself, and all the while I am being carried on great winds across the sky.
One woman we know of went out with a man for one entire year and during that time he always received a 7AM and 11PM phone call that he didna€™t answer.A  It seems that he never had the heart to tell his former girlfriend that he had found someone else. Whether we wrap in an abstinence package or talk about it through Planned Parenthood a€“ we are talking about sex.A  In the abstinence world, the talk of sex translates into a€?no sex before marriage,a€? and it comes without the sound advice of safe sex based on good science. Sex is so much a part of our culture that even advertising for cars comes with seductive overtones.A  While we seem to be a society that likes sex, according to the recent Durex Survey the US ranks 23 out of 26 nations in terms of sexual satisfaction. And the more money we pour into abstinence legislation the more we hear about its failures.A  A study by Mathematica Policy Research Inc. It is time to retrain your instincts so that you can hear the voice inside you lead you to a more positive place. The comments from hundreds of interviews in writing my books indicate that many women give away too much of themselves in relationships by loving someone who is is hurting you emotionally or even physically.
In fact say them out loud.A  Youa€™d be surprised how hard they are to get out ;) Also, make sure and time your proposal date soon after your parental sit down a€“ nothing adds pressure like awaiting in-laws!
Maybe you will be able to get the words out, but you will be more nervous than at any other time in your life, that much I can guarantee.A  So just in case you cana€™t get through your speech, a card or photo album with a a€?will you marry mea€™ is always a good back up.
I met a woman who confided to me that her boyfriend of some years cheated on her and then told her, a€?please take me back, youa€™re the best one for me.a€? Or something like that.
If it were culturally acceptable to take time away from our loved ones to have affairs and openly view pornography would it make us a happier people?
So I did a mental survey among all my male friends, relatives and colleagues and sad to say, we all come up wanting. I keep sinking into sorrow (self-inflicted though it is) until it occurs to me that I will drown unless I can drag myself out. But becoming present puts us back in reality, where we can rigorously fact-check our own tales. He convinced the jilted woman that he was traveling on the weekends.A  When the week-end calls finally ended, his girlfriend learned that he found a way to make a good night call to the woman he had jilted before what inevitably turned into their 11 PM argument when the phone calls came. BlogOn the Photos page you will see the pictures I took at this years Fantasy Fest in Key West. Perhaps before we can hear the positive voice of intuition, we need to look at why we ignore it when it is trying to warn us that a relationship is simply not working. There was a recent New York Times article that says a€?Hopea€? is the negative force that keeps us chained a€“ You stay becaue you hope it will get better.Change even for the better is stressful. Again here is the importance of your proposal ally, keep her busy so that she arrives at your proposal destination when you expect it. She said to me, a€?so, if I was the best for him, why did he cheat on me?a€? She was perplexed and I think permanently hurt.
This can be difficult, but after decades of practice, I've created a sort of verbal tree limb I can grab in a pinch: Am I presently learning the truth about my life's work?
Once she acknowledged that, she couldn't be a tiny victim, waiting haplessly for her chakras to open.
Dwelling endlessly on the past keeps us from the wild, exhausting, terrifying tasks that create our right lives. Set the scene, flowers, candles are a safe bet.A  Do something that is meaningful for your relationship, pick something and go with it.
Tell me that sad story again -- the first 400 times didn't do it justice!" The healthy part of me finds this annoying: "Oh, for God's sake," she says, rolling her eyes. No real need to stress over this, she will love it no matter what, and as long as there is some theme to it all you will be fine. Ia€™m swearing off chics who are jealous or bitchy or needy or demanding or who show up at games to track me down. Whatever happened 10 years ago, whatever happened 10 minutes ago, is not your present concern. One helpful thing to keep in mind about the proposal setting is that this story will be told later, as long as there is some kind of story to tell the details will get smoothed over.A  Dona€™t worry about pink vs. I could not believe the courage that she had on display.After I took her picture I told her how my father was currently battling cancer and as she saw the tears well up in my eyes she offered me a hug and some words of encouragement. When you stop home to pick up an umbrella and an old college love stops by "taking a chance that you might be there." Sitting next to someone at a graduation. I was so moved I had to walk away to collect myself.I have no idea who this lady is or anything about herexcept that she is unbelievably brave. Golf champion Jack Nicklaus dreamed of the swing that lifted him out of a slump and perfected his game.What does this have to do with relationships? Instead of getting annoyed a€“ Smile a€“ it could be the love of your life.--What does your intuition tell you about your choices in relationships up to now? There were thousands of women in Key West and most of them were fully clothed because of their fear of exposing themselves. If turning over a problem to the creative psyche can lead to a hotel chain, a championship golf game, and a Nobel Prize (yes the nerve impulse experiment of Physicist Otto Loewi) just think of what it can do to improve your relationships. I have put her on my list of life's heroes.They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. From now on when the greatest college football players of all time are being discussed his name will be brought up.
In my opinion people that make a big deal out of their religion are trying to convince themselves andreally don't believe. Tebow was ill but went ahead and played anyway, some people would say this proves how tough he is. Tebow been thinking about the team and what was best for the team it never would have happened. Tebow should not have been in the game but he was becuaseheis trying topad his stats so he can win another Hiesman Trophy and the Gators can win another national championship.If something is good enough to be the best no one has to make it look better than it is. Leaving your best players in a football game so the team can gain more yards and score more touchdowns might get more voters to notice you but it is short sighted. There is a reason some teamsalways stay on top and it is because they tkae the first team out during blow outs and give the second and third teams playing time.


Tebow played when he was sick and stayed in the game after it was out of hand because he wanted personal recognition and his coach wants team recognition.If selfishness and greed are part of christianity is it really good enoughfor anyone to follow?This past week there has been a lot of attention brought to the civility of Americans. West's interuption of Ms Swift's acceptance speech and of course Representative Wilson's "You Lie" moment during Pres. Obama's speech.Or the three of these I would give a pass to Ms Williams as she was on a field of competiton and let her emotions get the better of her. By her own admition she made a mistake and seems to be honestly remorseful.It is unclear if what Mr. If it was a stunt, well It was still in bad taste and if it was not a stunt then it was just plane rude.Certainly this man is entitled to his opinion and he should be allowed to voice that opinion. Wilson, I understand that politics are a nasty business but they do have rules of decorem that are to be strictly adhered to. We all have to interact with one another and I think our world would be a better place if we all tried to remember the Golden Rule. Let us all do unto others as we would have them do unto us.As so many people have had tough times recently I have been in a bit of a funk. One thing that keeps me going is remembering what someone told me years ago and that is that all things will pass. As we go through good times we should remember that this too shall pass and as we go through the tough times we must remember that good times are on the other side of these problems.I think that the good times are getting closer for me personally and for the country in general. His cancer treatments were making him very ill so the Doctors stopped the Chemo but conitued the full Radation regimen.
I think they areoptimisticabout the coming surgery to remove all of the cancer.I do not understand these people that think our current healthcare system is just fine and does not need overhauled. Perhaps they can make it a little less broke.The cost of my parent's healthcare is a signifcant percentage of their retirement income and a few years back when I had to have my gall bladder removed my bills forced me into bankruptcy. Our current system does nothing but benefit big healthcare companies at the expense of the American population.
I don't know what the answers are as a matter of fact I probably don't even know what the questions are. I do know that we are the wealthiest nation the world has ever seen and for any member of our society to suffer because of the greed of others is simply unacceptable.
If a chain is only as strong as its weekest link isn't also a society only as healthy as its sickest citizen?The indivdual health of each Americanaffects us all. The healthier each indivdual is the healthier our society is, isn't it?I have heard of cancer clusters before but I never thought I would be the cause of one.My father is just finishingfour weeks of chemo and radiationand getting ready for surgery to remove the rest of his tumor and thishas been very trying for him and the rest of us in the family as well.
In about two weeks I havetostart a job for anothercouple and he has cancer.I cannot remember the last time I knew someone that was undergoing cancer treatments, now I know four.
Obviously, I understand it is so much more difficult for them but it wears on me night and day.I like to help people and I like to make people feel good. I get to the end of the job and all of the sudden he has a problem, I'm insulted.This was a job that I sub-contracted from someone else andI guess there was a communication breakdown which caused the problem, so I guess I learned another lesson. I am finished sub-contracting work from another painter.So last Friday I was on my way home from work and it was pouring down rain. I felt as though I was driving a little too fast so I slowed down to about 45 MPHbut it was not enough I hit a flooded out piece of road and started to hydroplane. The vehicle went off the road and into the wet grass, the saturated ground sucked me in and I lost control of the wheel and then my truck flipped over.My first thought was, "this is gonna hurt". My second thought, as I hung there by my seatbelt,was, " how in the hell am I gonna get outta here".Someone knocked on my window to let me know that they called 911 and I told him I was OK and I never saw him again.
I eventually figured out how to get out and as I emerged from my truck I saw the Sherriff's Deputy walk up to me.I was able to find my wallet and cell phone and as I sat in the back of the police cruiser I called my Dad.
I felt like such an ass putting this extra pressure on my Dad right now, he just doesn't need this. After being picked up and being taken back to my parent's house my Dad gave me some dry clothes and I went into the bathroom to put them on and it hit me for the first time, I could have died and I broke down in tears. It is a chance for him to make alittle money but more importantly it is a great opportunity for me to teach him to stay in school. As hesets out on his vision quest his passions and prejudices will shape a life for him that only he can know if it is right. I only hope he doesnot disappoint himself.I went to a small little get together last night and I met some very nice people. Several things happened that made me think.One of the first things I noticed was the racial make-up and dispersement of the people.
I did not make a count but there was about equal numbers of black and white people present and as usual the party split with two groups.
One group was predominantly white and the other black.I had only met one person that was there so I cannot attest to the racial beliefs of the party goers but everyone seemed very polite and I sensed no racism of any sort. As a matter of fact everyone seemed to be very cordial to the people of opposite race.I do believe that most people simply feel more comfortable around people like themselves. We all grew up learning certain behaviors that are common to our race and different from others. When we have a choice most of us will go with the people with similiar cultural concepts.One thing I heard that I never thought of before, and now wonder why I did not was, "I do not judge people based on the color of their skin". This past week it came to my attention that getting de-baptized has become popular in America. If an adult decides to join a religion and wants to get baptized well more power to them, however, when baptism is forced upon infants or immature children I do not see the purpose. What does the child receiving the sacrament get but more importantly what do the adults get out of forcing their beliefs on someone that cannot make a conscious decision to join them.?The Universal Church of Freedom, Acceptance and Love will definitely be setting up a sacrament of de-baptizing for those that felt as though they were originally baptized against their will.
I was in grade school when my parents decided to become members of The Lutheran Church I was baptized soon after. I was to young to understand it and looking back I started questioning the christian religion even then.
I also remember not repeating everything that I was supposed to.On the other end of this is the thought that perhaps we should have a sacrament for those that now want to consciously join our religion. I have come to accept death as a condition of life and I understand that my father will die some day, hopefully not yet,so that is not the difficult part.My father is one of the toughest men I have ever known and I have never seen anything beat him. Am I man enough to do what needs to be done and help the other members of my family get through this? There are many things that I need my father to tell me so that we as a family will be prepared for life without him but how can I ask him now? I do not want to be even the least bit negative in my thinking but our business and my mother's future depends upon me knowing these answers. I do not know the percentages or the doctors prognosis for survival so my hopes are of only the best outcome. Quite honestly I do not handle death very well so it would be best for me if I was the next member of my family to pass away, not that I have any plans for this. My parents have given me so much and it has never been in doubt that I would be there for them but now that this time is coming can I step up and carry the load that my father has been carrying since his father died almost thirty years ago?
If two consenting adults chose to have sex after exchanging money it does not affect anyone but those two people.People that are againstprostitution probably need to get laid.
If you have been paying attention to the news and recent events it should be clearthat our lawmakers are not even moral by their own standards. The party of family values, the GOP, has been headlining the news with sex scandals on a regular basis.
It might not be money, it might be dinner and a movie or it might be agreeing to do something around the house or it might be having to share emotions.
Besides you are not actually paying for the sex, you are actually paying for her to leave when the sex is over.Sex is sex it does not matter who does it our what agreements are made before doing it, it is sex. Sex is fun and sex is not damaging to anyone if it is done between two or more consenting adults. If more people did it less people would be so uptight about it.I hope the everyone had a great 4th of July. I am not usually the type to make a big deal about holidays but July 4th is all about FREEDOM. Our founding fathers came together and and decided that they did not need to take it anymore.
If they were alive today they would probably be in prison.I am not suggesting that thesegreat men of yesterday should be held to the standards of today but if they could not change those attitudes they would be in big trouble.
I cannot imagine what George Washington would say about being told to wear a seatbelt to protect himself or Thomas Jefferson being told he couldsexually harrasss his employees.We have some pretty good evidence that the founding fathers were pretty much drunk most of the time and probably smoked hemp as well. Yourmight not think that your vote will count but if you are not registered then you do not even have a voice.
You haveoptions other than Democrat and Republican, personally I am an Independent and I vote.
I e-mail myrepresentatives eventhough I am sure they do not actually read the e-mail, I send, I know someone does and if I write enough and I am eloquent enough my voice will be heard and my feelings will be passed up the chain, yours will also.Ain't none of us getting out of this world alive. I never wish death upon anyone and would never rejoice at the death of another but I shall not lose a moments sleep ever this man's death.
I do not know if he molested a child but I do know he did things that he should not have done. He did things that harmed children.I do not now nor will I ever understand fans that act as though they just lost a family member when acelebrity dies.
Iremember being shocked when Elvis died and saddened when John Wayne died and when Dale Earnhardt died I was stunned but come on.
How can the death of a person that I never knew be equated to this?One person that I mourned deeply that was not a family memeber was one of my college professors, a great man named Dr. I played football in college so we were there before school started and in the first couple of days all of the freshman sort of made fun of Dr.
The upper classmen soon set us straight and made it known to us that this was a man to be honored. I was surprised when he wished me good morning and called me by my name, we had never been introduced. As I learned later this man memorized the names and photo's of every incoming freshman and that is how he knew my name.
This act touched my sole in a way that I never thought could happen and when I learned of Dr. Kenney's death I knew that this world would never be the same without him.As I write this I have tears streaming down my face as I remeber a man that so few people knew but he impacted this world more than all of the celebrities put together ever will.


Being as I am a painter I work outside in all kinds of weather and I just cannot understand how others act in uncomfortable weather conditions.Yes it is hot and yes it is uncomfortable but some people act as though it is actually painful. A couple of weeks ago when I went to my son's graduation I was one of the few men dressed appropriately in a sport jacket and tie. I saw people dressed in shorts and t-shirts that were sweating just as much as I was and looked just as uncomfortable as I was so what exactly was their point?In this record setting heat I have no air conditioner. It is only a $15.00 part and should only take a couple minutes to change, I just don't care enough about it to do it.
I think most Americans are really becoming pussies.I don't like the cold weather but heat I get used to.
I grew up in Ohio and I have shoveled snow in bitter cold with wind chills well below zero. Sure you can put on more layers of clothing but you can only put on so many pairs of socks and only one pair of gloves and your face is usually unprotected. My family and friends tell me that these women are destroying my life and I need to leave them but it is not them, it is me.They do not destroy my life, I do. I will admit that my selection of women is not all that good but I cannot ever seem to make a relationship work. I work too hard and flirt too much and I am too strong willed,my relationships suffer.I have become happy with who I am eventhough I cannot seem to find a person that wants to share my life for very long. From time to time I do get lonely but I do not mind being alone.This past week a small kitten showed up at my house. It does not want to be picked up but it is getting to be more comfortable with me, I can pet it when I feed it. My new cat is starting to trust me and this gives me hope.Some day I will get another chance.
Somewhere there is a person that be will becomfortable with me and learn to trust me eventhough I am who I am.Last week my niece graduated from high school and this week my son will as well. I can recall that i had so much potential to make something of my life and make a difference in the world.I do not know if I will ever reach the potential I once had but I believe I am happy with my life. As far as making a difference, with the number of people that visit this site and read my thoughts, I must be touching someone.
As I have said so many times I am not trying to make anyone believe the things I believe, I just want people to honestly think about what they believe.For all of the young people graduating from high school and college around the country my best wishes go out to you all.
He has been terrorized for years because he is one of few doctors in America that performs late term abortions. The radical right finally got rid of him.Why do anti abortionists call themselves "pro life"? A person is not"pro life" when they are in favor of murder and killing as ways to solve problems. Only a person of very limited intelligence is unable to find another way of solving problems other than resorting to violence.It is a dream of mine that no woman ever need to abort her fetus, but I understandthat some times it is needed and all women should be able to have that option.
I do understand that a society does need these options that are"anti life" but we need to do our best to limit the usage of these methods.I went to Hulover Beach for Memorial Day and a little something happened that reminded me why I started this website. I was lying on the beach doing my crossword puzzle and minding my own business when all of a sudden some lady started yelling at me.Haulover's clothing optional section is clearly marked so if she was surprised that I was naked it was her own fault.
She did have some small children with her so I can understand that she would not want these children to be playing close to naked people but all she had to do was move down the beach and the problem would have been solved. She insisted upon being belligerent and making a scene and calling us sick and perverts.I can handle being called a pervert by ignorant people but this kind of an attitude upsets me. Had she not said anything and just moved down the beach tthe children would have thought nothing of it. I guess there are a lot of people that think we should be ashamed of our bodies but these people have issues that they need to deal with.I am not as young as I once was and my once athletic figure is not as nice as it used to be but I am not ashamed of my body and neither should anyone else.
Today too many drivers are under the immpression that they are the only ones that matter or the only ones on the road. I will never understand why people drive in the left hand lane of the freeway when they will not even come within 10 mph of the speed limit. They just continue straight ahead like a moving pylon oblivious to the hazards they cause.Cell phones are one thing that can cause some really bad driving and I don't know why. I have a cell phone and I talk on it while I drive but I make sure that the driving is the most important part of my life at that momment.
If a person can drive and talk to passengers in the vehicle than we should be able to talk to someone on the phone.I cannot understand why anyone would ever try to text while driving and yet I see this quite often. She had a bumper sticker that reminded people to not drink amd drive and she proceeded to drive off the side of the road and almost wrecked in front of me trying to get straightened out.
She turned down the same street I was turning on and she continued driving like a fool so I blew my horn at her. She used one finger to wave at me and then I noticed she also had a license plate that had "In God We Trust" on it. If you do not love your mother, I hope the two of you can resolve your differences.I am not a big fan of doing something nice for someone just because it is a holiday. If the people in your life do not know that you love them based upon the things you do all year long, one or two days a year won't make a difference. I never make a big deal out of mothers day or birthdays or any other particular day, I try to show that I care every day.I have known people that make a big deal out of showing how much they love their families on special occassions. I am pretty damned sure the people close to me know that I love them but that won't stop me from doing those little things that prove it. Was this minister more interested in his parishoners salvation or the amount of money collected in that plate?A few years later I was living in Alabama and I would go to church occasionally with my girlfriend and her mother. One dayI overheard a discussion about how the minister wanted my girlfriends mother to contribute more money to the church. This old widow lady lived on a very small social security income and I got more than just a little upset.I told her that she has given enough to the church through the years and now it is her turn to receive. She made a comment about god providing and I brought up the fact that Ken provided her groceries the week before.
Within a few weeks I moved back to Ohio.Recently I was at my parents house and I noticed an envelope on the counter. It had the name of my parents church on it and it had a place to fill in an amount and a place for their name. If people want to give to a church that is fine but I believe it should be doneanonymously.What right does a church have to shame and intimidate people into donating money? People will give what they can afford and what they feel is appropriate and anyone that needs to use strong arm tactics to force people to give more are no better than an extortionist.A few years back I was supposed to paint a house for a couple but about one week from the date they called me and told me that due to family problems they would have to cancel.
When I first met the Smiths Mrs.Smith was an attractive woman with a very friendly personallity. I soon realized that though this vibrant lady was going through a battle for her life she lost her hair but not her friendly personallity.From time to time as I face troubles in my own life I call on my memories of the Smiths and how they dealt with problems far worse than anything I might have been going through.
I was searching online for some information on a radio personality that I listen to and as Iread about this person I learned some things about another person on the same radio program.I have never metthis other person but on air she is a very bubbly person.
Her on air persona is that of an "airhead" but from exchanging e-mails with her I came to find out sheis much smarter than she acts on air. As a matter of fact the other members of the show often discuss how she is always happy and upbeat.Some people in this world get dealt badcards and decide to fold their hand, some people play the hand they are dealt and winthe game. I have found a new source of inspirationand another reason to keep playing the game of life.Last week I heard sports storyabout NBA great Isiah Thomas taking a job at a Florida University and donating his salary back to the school. Thomas is a very wealthy man and he is still being paid by the New York Knicks so it is not a monetary sacrifice butwith the amount of work requiredto be a college coach it is a lot of work to do for free.I heard Mr.
Thomas make a statement that this is something he feels he needs to do because when he was young he took advantage of youthprogramsthat required charitable donations from others. Thomas has gotten a lot of bad press the last couple of years but thislittle bit of good sure helps make up for a whole lot of bad. It makes me wonder why more wealthy people cannot give more than just money as a form of charity.
Thomas has a chance to touch lives and make a difference and he is asking nothing in return.Often times I have found myself in situations where I stop to help someone. I am not a mechanic but I can help people with flat tires, dead batteries and simple things. Most of the time when I am done helping out the person offers me payment and I always say thesame thing, "One day awhile back someone gave me a favor and today I am giving that favor to you. The only thing Iask in return is that some day you give this favor to someone else that needs it."Wouldn't the World be a better place if people stopped thinking money is the most important thing? Wouldn't it be nice if people just helped out because it was the right thing to do and not because there was something in it for them? I don't do nice things for people fopr money and I don't do nice things because I am trying to buy my way into Heaven. Greed is much like pornography in that it is hard to define but we all know it when we see it. Of course we all have different visions, don't we?It seems to me our greed is destroying us, The cause of the world's financial meltdown is none other than greed.
Greed of Wall Street, Greed of Banks, Greed of Speculators, Greed from our Politiciansand the list goes on. People at the helm once told the rest of us no, you cannot afford this but lately due to their own greed they started showing us how we could get it eventhough we cold not afford it.The collapse of the housing market was in a large part due to the Greed of Realators and Home Builders. For generations the industry stayed clear of Speculators because they knoew it would cause long term problems eventhough they would make short term profits. Our Banking system has collapsed due toour elected officials taking money from banks toremove regulation from the finacial industry. Thelarge banks were the largest owners of oil in America and then when the banks went broke what happened to the price of oil? There is no way possible one man did this.This scam was so large there had to be many, many people involved. If investors had not been so driven by their desire to make money with no effort they would have asked questions and they would have seen the red flags.Desire to make money and have nice things is notGreed.
Taking advantage of situations and people to achieve results that benefit a few while harming the masses is just wrong.
