Stupid Government Tricks

In research for my post today I decided to enter the words “stupid government” into Google.

It listed the site, “Stupid Government Tricks” with  subtitle of “Unique solutions to Stupid Government Problems”.

It is a fascinating site which I urge you to visit. The site belongs to Larry Robinson whose stated aim is to prevent government from doing things to people.

Here are some of the topics I found very interesting and relevant to our economic crisis;

There should be enough there to read for now. Even if you don’t agree with all Larry says, take the time to read it and think about it. There is definitely plenty of food for thought.

We need to think seriously about how we go forward from here and how we manage our nest egg. Reading Larry’s stuff might put some things in perspective and may even give you an Ah ha! moment or two.

Use such moments to train yourself to see through “government-speak” (we’re here to help) designed to lull us all into a false sense of security.

The only person you should trust is you. Practice the art of trusting in your own judgement. Being wrong doesn’t make you a failure. Doing nothing to protect yourself does. You’ll get better with practice and learn to see things that you never saw before, because you will become more aware of things.

You need to learn to trust your own judgement and learn to make adjustments to your beliefs based on new information which you should always analyse and evaluate before adding it to your store of beliefs and knowledge.

Always ask yourself, how will this help be protect my nest egg and my retirement? Or how will this harm it? Then take action if necessary.

    I think it’s important for people to participate in their government because we the people make the government.

    If you think the government is doing stupid tricks, then you need to take action to get the government to work better.

    For 10 years I was very active in a good government citizens’ group. For another 10 I worked for candidates who I thought would make effective leaders. I even ran for public office, the local city council.

    I’ve also worked for state government.

    I learned a lot about how government works.

    Citizens need to participate fully to get the government we need and deserve.

    I think we should work to minimize government at all times.

    We should participate in the political process of voting in people who we believe will act in the peoples best interests. If they don’t we need to vote them out.

    If belonging to citizen’s groups and other organizations achieves these ends then I’m for that too.

    Thanks for your comments Rita.
