Why do broke people insist on being broke?

Broke no money, make money online Sometimes I wonder why people that have no money don’t change what they are doing.  Isn’t it true that doing the same thing over again always results in the same situation?

With all the opportunity in the world to create wealth online or offline, you would think that everybody would be rich, well off, or can at least hold their own.

Aside from mental illness, or a physical disability, there really is no excuses.  Hell, even some handicapped people do better in life than full able bodied humans!

Yet we have millions of people in North America alone that have something blocking their brains.

I think I’ve discovered some of what ails the brains of these people.  T.V. , Internet, drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, education, and massive credit.

I myself have to battle these stupid things on a daily basis.  Yes I enjoy a drink or two, maybe even some pot, but to let those things rule your life becomes a chore.

T.V. is nothing but a garbage can of media.  Kids don’t even what the thing anymore!  I accidentally saw a Kardashian on my screen last night,  switched it right away!  I found a kids movie that was actually really good and had some good lessons in it.  Despicable Me.  Fell asleep watching it but it was not only entertaining, but had some really positive messages.

Reality T.V. is disgusting!

Internet is a great tool for research and learning, but on the flip side, there are some really bad things online that I don’t want my kids seeing.  Parents used to worry about kids watching too much T.V. – now we worry about what free content kids are watching while parents are away.

Our kids are exposed to alot more negative influences than ever before, from stupid people on reality T.V. like a kardashian, or a jersey shore person.

Drugs that are created for a made up health issue by the big pharma companies,  yeah we’re all a little bit  ADD.  People (Kids) learn differently.  Why give them a drug to make them learn like the others?  Einstein was certainly ridiculed by his teachers for being a bad student!  Good thing they didn’t have overbearing liberal governments overseeing the teachers poor recommendations back then!

Recreational drugs like marijuana and alcohol, I believe are fine to use moderately,  it’s when we let these things control our lives that it becomes a problem.  Similar to letting negative people control your life and create  misguided path so that you can’t move forward.  Some negative people are like a bad addiction!  Funny how the government allows alcohol and generates a hefty tax base, but won’t allow simple marijuana to be used without criminal penalty.  Government would rather raise taxes on people that are already taxed to the limits, than generate new taxes through the sales of what people really want. 

Cigarettes are the absolute worst thing, yet the government allows people to smoke because they like the taxes it generates.  I quit those things years ago when I realized I needed more money and other things like smelling better, a more productive lifestyle, and a healthier body.

Government says you can smoke and drink and gamble, it’s all good, but forbids the use of a little weed.  Talk about a hypocritical Harper government.  Did you know weed is only illegal because of a mis-guided report from one persons opinion and not actual scientific evidence.

Credit cards are a banks best friend.  In the early days of credit, it was frowned upon to use credit. This was before all the technology we have today.  This was also when thew national debt was at it’s lowest.  Now we need credit just to get a house or car.  The problem is the banks push credit so much that it creates a false sense of security for the very people it says are their customers.  How many credit cards do we need?

I can’t go anywhere without being offered credit from some bank!  I have one credit card, that’s I need! This is the problem with the banks, they make it easy to borrow money, up your limit then make money off the interest because they know you can’t possibly pay it back in one go.

Education is a joke!  Now a teacher will loose his job when he gives a kid what they deserve.  A big fat zero!  Kids are growing up today thinking that they can do as little as possible, yet demand that they get all they want.  What ever happened to deserving a good grade, deserving money for a job well done, and pride for doing a good job.  The government is in bed with the teachers unions and they are creating an agenda for kids that sets them up to fail later in life.  If the kids doesn’t learn like the others, put ‘em on drugs so the teacher won’t have to  deal with adversity.

All the topics I’ve covered here- Cigarettes, weed, alcohol, bank credit, T.V. Education, and Internet are all controlled by the government.  The government is not your friend!

This is why people are broke.  People insist on being broke because they don’t know any different.  This is what the government has created for its people!  Now millions of people have a broke mind.

Stop, turn off the media, stop spending money on garbage and take control! Isn’t it about time we started telling our kids how to think, not what to think?!

Happy Canada Day!

To blog or not to blog?

Small business Barrie I wrote a pretty good article on blogging.

I was hanging around Google and noticed that over twenty  million people were asking about blogging. 


In particular, the question was “What is blogging and how do you do it?”

Read yourself to wealth!

Home business barrie  I finally got a new book to read.

The last one was great and I learned lots about the shift in wealth, the corruption in all industries, and how we can still overcome the negative influences and change our lives through legal business practices.

My new book called Read more

Job stands for “Just over Broke”

Job-Loblaws-Zehrs-wage-cuts-switchover-flip-store-barrieAs I’m reading this book called “Who Stole the American dream” I learned so many things about our corrupt culture when it comes to business and politics.

I know who stole the American dream. Read more

Where is the free enterprise?

Free enterprise is no longer free . We take what we can get which is not really freedom is it.

For people wanting a better choice, they have turned to franchising.  A turn-key business that teaches as you go. Sound ok so far.

Now you get to work 75 hours a week because you just bought a job,

something that you just ran away from or are at  least looking elsewhere for income alternatives.

If you can afford to spend fifty grand and more on a franchise, pay employees, and maybe see a profit in about five years, then all the power to you.  Most people can’t afford
that kind of financial spread, and would rather make money sooner than later, while not working all hours of the day.

Is that being lazy or are franchises only for the ambitious and motivated.  I think there are lots of people that are qualified for a franchise, but lack the capitol and people are afraid to spend that kind of money on an uncertainty.

It’s not like we can depend on the government, education, and business to help us.  We cannot rely on others.

Every industry has problems and asking for help seems to create more problems, so nobody whats to go down that road.

And that means we have to take matter into our own hands.

Yes there are options.  So where do we go to realize our dreams?

I love Zig Ziglars line. “You can anything you want in life if you just help enough others get what they want”

Words to live by when it comes to thinking about how you will make your financial dreams a success.

The next chapter talks about what our options are.  I’m wondering how many people know that there are actually options!
