Math, logic and the real world

This comes from 2 math teachers with a combined total of 70 yrs. experience. It has an indisputable mathematical logic. It also made me Laugh Out Loud.

This is a strictly ….. mathematical viewpoint.. and it goes like this:
What Makes 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?

Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%.
How about achieving 103%? What makes up 100% in life?

Here’s a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions:

If: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
Is represented as: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.

Then: H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K looks like this. 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%
And K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E also appears as 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

But, A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E makes it entrée thus. 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

However, B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T shows up as 2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%

AND, look how far ass kissing will take you. A-S-S-K-I-S-S-I-N-G
1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118%

So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty, that while Hard work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there. It’s the Bullshit and Ass Kissing that will put you over the top.

Now you know why Politicians are where they are!

Ponder this

All’s the government should do is keep the taxes and regulations at a manageable rate, keep a decent standing army and get out of the way.

Mundane Morning Quarterback

We hope you enjoy the cartoon above, because there was no way we were wading into the morass (not that we’re against morass) of the latest news cycle.

Anti-Sharia Law protesters were attacked by Antifa counter-protesters, while LGBT groups took to the streets in support of Islam. We’ll note that LGBT folks also take to the streets in Islamic countries, only they start from rooftops.

We learned that Comey may or may not really have secret memos, Trump may or may not really have secret tapes, Mueller may or may not be preparing to charge the President with obstructing the investigation of crimes which didn’t happen, and all the while tweets keep flying out of the Oval Office in the wee hours (or, to men of a certain age, the wee-wee hours) to remind everyone that The Donald has political Tourette’s syndrome.

Big Spenders

When the Progs have a chance to spend your money, there is nothing holding them back, NOTHING. The, in cahoots, Media tells the lies for them of how wonderful all is going and the FED merrily prints more money making the debt larger by the hour.

Happy Days Are Here Again. Not…from Rico

Both EBT and massive deficit spending (trillions of debt) have so far done almost as good a job of propping up a dead economy and ‘covering up’ what one could reasonably be called “Great Depression II” as the lying kept-whores of the MSM have.
– No breadlines to see here, so just move along.

Not being talked about, or even being considered by either the “media” (hah, I made myself laugh) or the Leftist’s favorite “economists” (oh noz, coffee came out of my nose with that one) is America’s GDP.
– The average GDP for the ten years from 1930 to 1939 during the “Great Depression” was 1.33%.
– The average GDP for the ten years from 2007 to 2016 during “Great Depression II” was 1.33%.

And even LESS talked about by the enemedia is the dual mandate of the FED to inflate financial assets while crushing working stiffs.
Of course, the FED is no more ‘federal’ than Federal Express being a privately-owned, for-profit, bank with an exclusive charter to counterfeit money [read: a servant and creature of the financial system, not main street]. (emphasis added)

So, given all this “news”, are you still keeping your money in dollars instead of hard capital, i.e. metal of some sort. Explain to me how something that cannot continue, will continue. At what point does our creditors cease buying our Treasuries and start redeeming the outstanding holdings? In order to sell new bonds, at what rate of interest will have to be offered to induce a sale?

At that point what is the USD worth? Will you be holding them? And where will the bankers, gnomes and trolls be living? And the politicians, do you think they will have stayed here with us?

Trump wants to cut the so called “entitlements” which the politicians for so long have used to buy votes. Either we cut them now or they’ll be totally gone in one huge bankrupt crash. There is always a choice á la Hobson. Not possible, look at Europe or  Venezuela. How about Greece as an example. Try China, they’re hiding it but not for long. They are trying to hide a Sunrise.

This what one gets with a one party system; there is no difference between the Donks and the GOPe.
