TheBottomlineNow: Is It Really That Hard for You To Do Your Job Washington?

TheBottomlineNow: Is It Really That Hard for You To Do Your Job Washington? | TheBottomlineNow | Scoop.it

You know I'm beginning to began to think like maybe these politician guys can't count.  To hear them speak on this fiscal cliff, it's almost like having a bunch of kids arguing in a sandbox and when you ask them what's the problem they give you some complicated overthought answer and then look at the American public, as if they are to slow to get it.

Well Washington we get it.  You're so busy posturing  and positioning yourself for whatever ego pivot your involved in, you're forgetting who hired you and why. American's are cool bosses, usually they just want a good show. Most people really only glance at their 401K balance and really have no clue to what the banks really means when they inform you to check your amortization schedule (once more the overphrased overload strategy).

My point is this American. No one (and I mean no noone) can at the end of they day be more concerned about your financial future than you.  No politician (for real),investment broker of bank should be given that much power in your future.

Start demanding your politician to work on the little things that affect your life..  If they're going to deplete your wealth in the tax system then uphold them to the same standard that you would uphold any product that your investing in.  Don't let them distract you, talk down to you or try to overexplain their position.  Hold them accountable.  Remember they take your tax dollars to provide basic needs for you in society.  It's not their money, it's yours because you traded your labor for you're money.

So as they keep bullshitting us with this fiscal cliff mania (the new Y2K society wealth distraction).  Remind them that if America's financial future goes over that cliff, their political future will follow it over the cliff and MEAN IT on election day.

HardWorkIsHighlyOverated: Do You Want To Be Rich Or Just Not Broke

HardWorkIsHighlyOverated:  Do You Want To Be Rich Or Just Not Broke | TheBottomlineNow | Scoop.it

You know I have a few friends that it has occurred to me that really don't want no money.  They say they want some money but their actions don't say the same thing.  Actually their action say" I just don't want to be broke.  As a matter of fact, why don't you get rich and I'll become your consultant on how to spend your money."  Now they may fool you into believing they want some money because they are constantly telling folkes how hard they are working (be careful with this one because different people have different definitions of work.).  But the way I know that they really don't want no money is they are not willing to sacrifice whatever they feel is their comfort zone (their bills, their vices, their whatever, their job ect).

 

So to get rich you have to strive for huge risk to get huge returns.  The wealthy realize this, that's why they created a savings system to take those risk with your money from your labor (oh my bad , you weren't  aware of this).  Now there's nothing wrong with this strategy, what's wrong is that most people are not aware of this strategy.  So while many work very hard to accomplish something for themselves and their families, by them not being aware that this is a strategy they really only accumulate wealth for other to take advantage of opportunities hoping that the wealthy will be nice enough to share in the winnings (yeah right).  Folkes it don't work that way.  if the wealthy hit a lick (make money) usually the only ones who will be rewarded will be their inner circle.  But you always are welcome to put more money in their institutions while they wait on the next big thing with money from your labor( I wish I could get in a game where someone pays me for 30 years to rent my money.  The banking system, you see what I mean).  Also while you are supposedly earning interest on you money, quietly inflation, taxes and fees eat away at your principle (not good).

 

So now that you are aware, what's next?  Good question.  The answer focus and learn.  Entrprenuer be mindful of what is the most key term to an investor.  R.O.I. return of investment.  Basically how long will it take to get my money back and what will be my return.  Be mindful some wealthy people have no problem giving the financially unaware money, the financially unaware can't wait to put it back in the system.  If the investor can get his money back in a timely fashion and at a healthy return (most investor are real happy to see a 15% turnaround quartetly (every 3 months). Real happy.  Example: $10,000.00 @ R.O.I. of $1500.00 per quarter non taxible (That's $500.00.00 per month) and you handle the taxes, you are their best friend.  So be aware decide if you want to be rich or you just don't want to be broke.  Being rich will probably make you feel a whole lot better.  Remember "If you knew better you will do better."

Barack, no one said this shit was gonna be easy, so suck it up !

Barack, no one said this shit was gonna be easy, so suck it up ! | TheBottomlineNow | Scoop.it

Dear Mr President (it seems I'm the only one in the media that will give you that respect, what's that about?)

 

Man I know you had a tough day, but player noone said it was gonna be easy.  I realize that you thought maybe America was ready to grow as a culturalized political nation (America is ready, but were a big country with  lot of people).  I also realize that these are tough times.  But as I said before, noone said it was gonna be easy.

 

Today's employment numbers were (uum how can we say this) pretty bad.  I myself had to get a beer (and I don't drink really).  But none said it was gonna be easy.

 

Hey man let me hit you with some real talk.  I'm not making excuses for you or noone else but I think it's time someone pulled your coattail to a little realism.  No politician, no, businessman, no banker or candlestick maker has the ability to create jobs.  The only people who create jobs are customers and for customers to create jobs they have to have money to create the demand for jobs  (I'm sure some of your wealthy friends are aware of this truth, they just choose to ignore this fact because it's probably more fun for them to pick at you. 

 

The American consumer is so overleveradged in debt (college loans, mortgages, car loans, credit cards) that they are just spent out.  So if you create a job with the help of the goverment, you're only passing the buck to the Amercan tax payer (did I mention that the taxpayers might be spent out, just checking).  So when all these experts are walking around taliking and trying to look smart, stay focused and help business to be able to supply the demands and need of the consumer market because these same consumers are the only ones who can create the jobs we most desperately need (be mindful of this fact).  

 

Not you, Mitch Romney or any politician can do this.  Only the consumers.  Stay focused and develope a real strategy where businesses not political hacks can do what they do best, feed the consumers that help create they jobs you need (rich people can only hold money for so long before it begins to loses value due to inflation).  So develope a real bridge with the entepenuers of today so we can get America back on its feet.

 

The republican whine but they have no real solutions, just speculation and the democrats act like a spoiled child entitled to financing stupid strategies.  Rise above this foolishness and quit being distracted by the white noise of the republicans and do your job.  Its that simple.

 

THATS THEBOTTOMLINE NOW.
