Thoughts-Praises-Memories-Regrets- Who I am? Who I was meant to be! This is for my Daughters, Sons and Grandchildren - I would want them to learn of the things in my life that were most important to me. I am prayerful that they will know of my passions. I wish to share some of the music of all types that touch me, that tugs at my deepest emotions and express longings of intimacy and love. When words fail me music opens windows to the expressive soul.

Progress Over Time ???
STATEMENT AT THE END SAYS IT ALL !!!!!
66 years later!
What happened to the radiation that
Lasts thousands of years?
We all know that Hiroshima and Nagasaki were destroyed in August 1945
After the explosion of atomic bombs.
However, we know little about the progress made by the people of that land
During the past 65 years.
HIROSHIMA - 65 YEARS LATER
DETROIT- 65 YEARS AFTER HIROSHIMA
What has caused more long term destruction -
Government welfare programs created to buy the
Votes of those who want someone to take care of them?
Japan does not have a welfare system.
Work for it or do without.
And I don’t think there has ever been a better explanation of the importance of incentive than this example
An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.
The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on socialism".. All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A.... (substituting grades for dollars - something closer to home and more readily understood by all).
After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied 'hard' were upset and the students who studied 'little' were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied 'even less' and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied 'little'.
The second test average was a 'D'. No one was happy.
When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.
As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.
To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that "socialism" would also ultimately 'fail' because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.
Could not be any simpler than that.
Remember, there IS a test coming up. " elections sometime soon – perhaps the sooner the better"
Your chance to have YOUR say.
These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read and all applicable to this experiment:
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.
Can you think of a reason for not sharing this? Neither could I.
Please read and decide for yourself.
