Now to a gator-rancher, this would be a promising opportunity. To anyone else, especially if it is for equity venture, you wouldn’t be interested. Unfortunately, there are all too many people that would jump at the prospect of buying when being lied to by the seller. The why in this equation is ignorance. We’re not talking about being intellectually challenged (I love it when I can get “native PC”) as that would allude to some inability to learn. Nope. Just plain old ignorance. That which is 9/10th’s of the law. The statement “ignorance is bliss” is all BUT that. I believe the phrase was coined by a liberal and the liberals have the high ground.
We have a gas crisis and that is exactly what it is. Petroleum makes the world go round and just about everything we deal with has a direct connect to petroleum. The Pelosi and Obama liberals want you to change your ways. They want you green. They want you thinking alternatives and you have bit. Now that gas is thru the roof you want some relief and you are banking on the same people to give it to you. And when the politicians get beat-up too long, things will begin to happen and the liberals will take the credit. And the people will listen and believe once more. This is ignorance. The populace is upset and demanding of our congress but they don’t see the real picture. Too bad.
Illegal aliens are againest the law and most everyone doesn’t care……until it starts affecting their lifestyles, their paychecks and they start moving in next door and trashing the neighborhood. Then the people start getting upset and demanding something be done. When things calm down then all is forgotten. Ignorance. McCain wants to give amnesty and THEN work on a solution to close borders. Other liberals feel just the same and they are shoving this down the peoples throat and getting away with it. That’s right; because of ignorance.
People can be ignorant for many reasons. Laziness, non-affecting, trusting in others are but a few. These are traits that start early in childhood. That is when we should be learning economics. As math is the universal language, economics is the foundation of capitalism. It is the single most important academic that will make you or break you. Now your parents wanted you to get jobs and work so that you got an insight into making a living. But how many parents teach economics? How about primary schools? How much exposure do kids get before they are off looking for their fortunes? We know what jobs pay and how to advance for greater pay. Economics teaches you how to succeed in a society that needs what you do. If we all had a good base in economics do you really think that Obama would even have, say, 3% approval rating? Would the housing bubble have burst with all those sub-prime loans? Would our taxes have gone up in a weak economy? Would illegals be taking our jobs? Would we be buying oil overseas and sending our manufacturing over there? Would we allow China or any nation to hold a note that could devastate our way of life? The answer to all is no.
Even though that swampland is virtually useless there will be many that think it a good deal if I say it is. We need to stamp out this ignorance. Let’s ditch ESL in this nation and replace it with mandatory training in basic economics. We could have a nation with no rivals anywhere and be back as the envy of all government systems. Capitalism works and it works because of economics. When there are too many people that are ignorant to economics you end up with something other that capitalism. This is what liberals and cons rely on. They want you as ignorant as they are otherwise you will see them as frauds. Don’t be ignorant. The truth and knowledge will set you free. Be a friend. Be an American. Do what GOD would want you to do for your fellow man. Take your loose change and sign a liberal or possible future liberal up for an economics course. We all will be glad you did. Amen.
