I Am From the Government and I Am Here to Help – Part 5

Part 5 – Mushroom Farmers

I was going to call this Dyson (that fancy sweeper) to allow you to imagine that sucking sound as you think about the amount of money that will be sucked out of our wallets.  I could have also called it “No Apologies Necessary” or “Pay No Attention to What I Said Before” or “Look at How Much I Can Get for $26/Month” or “They’re Stupid and Will Accept What We Tell Them.”

The 5000 Year Leap

I often listen to the radio at work, but cannot always pay really close attention.  A while ago, I heard Glenn Beck discussing a book and though I did not catch much detail about the book, I bought it based on Beck’s recommendation.

When my son was looking at business colleges, we had the pleasure of talking to the chairman of one of the programs after he gave a talk about business ethics classes.  While the university requires that all business students attend ethics classes, he thought that the need for them was limited.  He said that if you don’t act ethically in business, you will not last in business.  The word about your character gets out and people will not deal with you.
