Tax Evasion by the Cons

The Cons seem to be evaders by nature. Maybe that’s simply a consequence of not being able to connect the dots. That is, maybe they can’t get from point A to point B directly because they can’t think or go straight. Random behavior is essentially evasive. In the case of evading taxes, there’s a dual incentive. Taxes are assigned tasks or obligations which random creatures can’t carry out. So, evading taxes may not be a matter of intent, but of destiny. If one can’t follow orders, then one doesn’t want to take them, or even hear them.

At what point is it impossible not to conclude the problem is sheer laziness?

When Iran agrees to participate in a Middle East Nuclear Weapons Free Zone, what will Israel do? How will the “leaders” intimidate both Israelis and Palestinians, if there is no nuclear Iran to fear? If the populace is no longer afraid, won’t they throw Netanyahoo out on his ear?


The Deterioration of a Brand

Cloister Cross Walk COMBO(2)

What happened is that the beach has shrunk and the Cloister staff has been reduced, so there’s nobody to bring in the toys at night. On board ship, the stewards would see to that.

Stewardship. That’s what’s missing. It’s what was missing at the DNR Board meeting yesterday, as well. Our stewards have become predators.

Reminds me of the help in Chile. Abused servants turn to pilfering. It is well known that the normal response to rationing is hoarding. I’m not sure pilfering has been identified as a companion. We do know that U.S. retail is beset by inventory shrinkage as a result of employee thieving. But they blame the customers. Bad businessmen. Continue reading
