the cost 

A crime in progress

ten thousand dollars per person per year – half of it goes to one out of twenty people – there are too many cooks in the kitchen – the employer, the insurance company, the government, the drug companies, the hospitals, etc – don’t ask questions – just tell them to fix it – the senior put in 60k and takes out 190k – the kids will take care of the difference – we left them a mess – a house of cards  – houses that are not affordable, affordable, affordable, etc – student loans – outsourced jobs – the bill

apprentice

A better way

– in the old days a son would work with his father – later a young man would work with an experienced worker in a factory – this is still being done – in germany – I had the chance to witness this – a group of young men being trained in a factory – they were getting paid while learning how to work with the technology of this particular plant – the company was investing in the future – young workers – the trump administration is now promoting this – how refreshing

work

A necessary ingredient

we are what we do – and not what we say we believe – what are we doing here? – we are being tested –
you may not find that in your bible – some bibles don’t even have the word test – but the nab does have it – and daniel 12:10 has it – we are being refined, purified and tested – it is the only thing that makes sense – we have free will and it must be tested – adam and eve proved that – I am sure your bible has that part
