A Morals Test

Some of you may have seen this already, but I got a kick out of it.


A Morals Test 

Are you as moral as you think you are?

This test only has one question, but it's a very important one. By giving an honest answer, you will discover where you stand morally. The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation in which you will have to make a decision. Only you will know the results, so remember that your answer needs to be honest.

THE SITUATION:

You are in Florida , Miami to be specific. There is chaos all around you caused by a hurricane with severe flooding. This is a flood of biblical proportions. You are a photojournalist working for a major newspaper, and you're caught in the middle of this epic disaster.

The situation is nearly hopeless. You're trying to shoot career-making photos. There are houses and people swirling around you, some disappearing under the water. Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury. 

THE TEST:

Suddenly you see a man in the water. He is fighting for his life, trying not to be taken down with the debris. You move closer. Somehow the man looks familiar. You suddenly realize who it is. It's Barack Obama! At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to take him under forever.

YOU HAVE TWO OPTIONS:

You can save the life of Barack Obama or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of one of the world's most powerful socialist men hell bent on the destruction of America .  

THE QUESTION:
Here's the question, and please give an honest answer.


"Would you select high contrast color film, or would you go with the classic simplicity of black and white?"

Jus' Trying to Be Helpful...

Maybe you've had some of these experiences like I have. 

I try to be helpful to people.  But often, you go out of your way to help somebody, and they don't appreciate it.  On the other hand, there are times when you're just standing there, minding your own business, and somebody finds some way to get upset at you.  Can't win.

I've had people tell me all about how oppressive white society is.  Didn't know that bein' white made me an oppressor.  I've had women (and men) tell me how the worst thing is that we're in a male dominated society.  Mental illness, menopause, menstruation... bad things start with men. 

Course, we've all heard how hateful we conservatives are, and how bad we make life for everyone else, so on and so forth... But all this puzzled me.

Well I've been introspectin' a bit, and I've decided that I must be looking at it all wrong.  People want to be all upset and angry.  They don't want to be happy, because then there'd be nothin' to raise a ruckus about.  Sort of a circular argument, but there it is.  I wasn't bein helpful.

So I'm trying to turn a new leaf over (or whatever the sayin is) in being helpful to people.  I borrowed an idea from a friend of mine in New Mexico, adjusted it a bit, and am gonna stick it on my bumper:



You can borrow the idea if you want to... Jus' trying to be helpful.

Update on Where Velcro's Been

It's been a long time since I've written here, July 2013, so I figured it would be good to give you all an update on what's been going on. 

First of all were some health issues.  I got desperately ill watching and listening and reading about all the crap that was and is happening in Washington DC and here locally in Tucson.  Bad case of rectuminitis, or inflammation of the nerve between the rectum and the eyes, giving one a shitty outlook on things.  That nearly put me in the hospital, where the growing problem that is Obamacare probably would have led to curtains for old Velcro.  Got myself back home where I've been recuperating ever since.

That gave me a lot of time to think, which leads to the second thing.  I'm working on a new business and think I may have the corner on a market here.  The government has sold us a bill of goods, like Benghazi, protecting the border through amnesty, Obamacare, and the like.  If they are so successful with that, why can't I be?

Postholes I've sold to a construction company.
So my new business is selling postholes.  Mostly 3-footers, for ranchers around here and some construction businesses (see picture).  It has really taken off though, and has kept me pretty busy, which is also why I haven't been writing much.  Turns out postholes come in all kinds of sizes and shapes, from little ones for house-for-sale type applications, to big ones for billboards and telephone poles. 

I've already run into a little ethical dilemma.  The county has ordered some potholes for roads around here, and I'm not sure what to do about it.  After I filled my first order I began thinking that I wasn't really helping things by selling potholes.  But there's good business in it, and you know the government from the county on up will always be dialing up things like that.

For example, the local paper here made a big stink last August about widespread poverty here in Tucson and southern Arizona.  Really sad.  Now, there's also a great big mining company that wants to open a big copper mine south of Tucson in the Santa Rita mountains.  But the county and other liberal elitists just can't get over how pretty the mountains are and have been fighting tooth and nail to keep the mine out and local families poor.  That's like showing a hungry person a sizzling steak and throwing it in the garbage.

So that's why I think I can succeed in the posthole business.  In fact, I think I'm going to have to build another warehouse soon.
