… California and the Drought [#jerry brown]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,August 30th,2016

.. what must Gov. Moonbeam be thinking ?? ..

.. his idea of a solution is a drastic one : a mandatory 25% cut in water use by everyone statewide . Does he really think that such a drastic move is going to work ? .. I doubt it …

.. there are several elements of California ‘ s situation , ones that I will cover soon in other writings . But I will tell you this : What Jerry Brown is proposing is insane , and will not work ..

.. people will resist such draconian measures . So will businesses , other government agencies , and farms [agriculture] . Why ? …

.. unless you motivate them to change , it is simple : it is simple human nature to resist change …

… California and the Drought [#skin in the game]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,August 28th,2016

.. people will resist draconian measures . It is that simple . Why ? it is in human nature for people to resist , especially when they do not have any ” skin in the game … “

.. they will do things because they have to , but they will not like it . They will also find ways to get around the rules , and put the burden on others . Ouch …

.. do you really want people to co – operate ? Well , then , they have to feel that they have a fair bit of ownership of the situation . Make them a part of the solution , instead of imposing diktats upon them from above …

… A New York City Tragedy [#eric garner]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,September 5th,2014

.. this was a needless death .

.. what was the N.Y.P.D. harassing a guy over untaxed cigarettes , especially with N.Y.C. ‘ s obscene level of cigarette taxation …

.. [h/t — NYDailyNews.com]..
.. [link] to the video ..

.. New York state ‘ s rate of cigarette taxes is bad enough . Then New York City loads it on on top of the state ‘ s very obscene cigarette tax rates . So , what did they expect to happen ? Nothing ? Duh ! …

.. haven’t those idiots studied economics , especially the Laws of Supply & Demand , of Human Nature , and the Law of Unintended Consequences . Those idiots have one rip – roaring black market going , and the N.Y.P.D. has more important things to do than attacking citizens over untaxed ciggies and what are known as ” loosies . ”

.. contrary to popular opinion and talking heads , the worst that I think that these folks are going to get is a manslaughter rap . Murder ?? No ! ….

.. no , I am not excusing the cop ‘ s misconduct . He used an unprofessional act [the chokehold ] . The use of the chokehold has been banned , and the cops participating should have damn well known better . They could have ” tased ” the guy to subdue him if they needed to …

… I have been tased , and trust me , it is not fun . I did it as a test when I was considering actually buying one . I wanted to understand what it was to be on the receiving end . If I was going to possess one of those things , then I felt the responsibility to the public to understand what I was doing ….

.. I obviously would not want to be shot in order to learn how to use a gun . But , before purchasing one , I will go to a gun range so that I know what it is to hold a weapon , to holster it , to care for it , and to shoot it . I think that it would be a common – sense maneuver before buying a gun …
