My goodness to Murgatroid! I didn’t know that I was promoting fascism and communism, as though there is any difference. Lordy, lordy I also didn’t know that NO work by humans produces anything. I didn’t know that HUMAN BEINGS were NOT behind the inventions of all the technology, devices and gadgets people play with today and have been for decades. Gosh, if I ever knew that someone OTHER than humans were behind all of this I would extoll the virtue of comfort, relaxation, non-production, idleness and simply rely on all those wonderful, productive taxpayers to supply me with all the amenities WITHOUT IT COSTING ME A CENT!
But, Wallace, YOU FAILED MISERABLY IN NOT ANSWERING MY QUESTION and you perambulated on and on and lectured us about economics, cost-accountancy, state-mandated projects and a plethora of other matters of which you are much more intelligent than me. I tend to be, and have been for the better part of my life, rather simplistic in these matters. I look at the bottom line; do my expenses exceed my income, do I have to get a loan from the bank to make up for the deficiency and thus become even more indebted? How can I possibly take home any kind of wage or salary when I have no income? I’m in a conundrum!
I have no quarrel with your dissertation and you may be right for all I know. But it is all pigeon-English to me and although I have PLEADED with you for years to address these matters using UNDERSTANDABLE ENGLISH, you continue to provide your analyses in language which is almost alien. Oh, on the question of my atheism let me put it to you this way: I have been an atheist all my life except for being married twice in the United Church and because of the Christianity surrounding them, my marriages failed miserably. I don’t need an awakening nor have I asked for one from anyone. My friends and colleagues take me for what I am; nothing more and nothing less. But enough of this religious hogwash!
So, if I might tap your brain, would you kindly answer my question. If you don’t I can only presume that the question has very little relevance to you and should be dismissed out of hand! BEWARE THE LEAVEN OF THE PHARISEES.
