Sint pe-aici prin vecini. Ma straduiesc sa educ niste copchii care-s tare nastrusnici. Azi is pe post de educatoare. Inca plutesc de fericire pentru elefanteii mei. Nu-mi mai gasesc locul pe scaun. Daca aveti nevoie de mine strigati ca vin la apel.
Liberalism=Equality - de LMC la: 04/11/2004 20:54:51
(la: Alegerile in USA)
Luat de pe site-ul de mai jos.

The debate between equality vs. merit is one of the oldest in our society. When merit is rewarded, competition becomes supreme, the fittest survive, and people get what they deserve. When rewards are given out equally, people become more pleasant and civilized to each other, but incentive falls, since trying harder doesn't get you anywhere.

For classification purposes, there are three types of societies: egalitarian, moderated meritocracy, and unrestricted meritocracy.

Socialism is the best example of an egalitarian society. When Marx wrote "From each according to his ability, and to each according to his needs," he was acknowledging that people are certainly born with different abilities, but they should be rewarded equally.

Libertarianism is the closest example of an unrestricted meritocracy, where there are the fewest constraints on the fittest reaching the top. Unfortunately, we have no historical examples of such a government.

Conservatism and liberalism are examples of moderated meritocracies. In a moderated meritocracy, the most successful continue to be rewarded the most, but a percentage of their power or income is redistributed back to the middle and lower class. Liberals, who lean more towards equality, believe the degree of redistribution should be rather high; conservatives, who lean more towards merit, believe that it should be rather low. In our economy, a progressive tax code achieves this effect, and liberals and conservatives argue over how steep its progressivity should be.

Daca mai vrei si alte explicatii intreaba.

A fundamental principle of Liberalism is the proposition: "It is contrary to the natural, innate, and inalienable right and liberty and dignity of man, to subject himself to an authority, the root, rule, measure, and sanction of which is not in himself". This principle implies the denial of all true authority; for authority necessarily presupposes a power outside and above man to bind him morally.

Nu este vorba de un SUV, din contra este vorba de 4 plinuri la o masina cu un rezervor de 17 galoane care-ti da cam 320 de mile pe rezervor de masina. Nu uita locuim in America unde distantele sint mult mai mari decit cele in Romania, iar transportul public nu este asa de accesibil. Eu personal daca m-as duce numai cu autobuzul mi-as petrece cam 1 ora jumate numai in autobuz sa ma duc pina la servici. Abonamentul la telefon te costa $35 daca vorbesti sau nu, cei $15 adaugati sint pentru orice eventualitate, daca-ti suni parintii sau daca-ti suni prietenii. Suma pentru mincare nu include iesitul la restaurant, ci numai sa maninci acasa, mincare normala, nu organica pentru care platesti mult mult mai mult. Si cum ti-am mai explicat, daca ai nevoie de o haina sau de stiu eu ce altceva, tre sa te duci la cersit.

Taxele in America - de LMC la: 04/11/2004 00:07:17
(la: Alegeri prezidentiale in Statele Unite. Candidatul preferat)
Okay Adriane, pentru ca ai impresia ca stii asa de multe despre taxele din America, hai sa-ti dau un caz actual, ca vad ce parere ai.

O persoana care face $20,585.58 intr-un an plateste $4,690.93 in taxe, deci ramine cu $15,894.65 in mina care impartit la 12 inseamna $1,324.55 pe luna. (Sumele acestea sint reale si nu sint luate din burta, persoana aceasta este o persoana reala care poate sa-ti documenteze toate aceste sume)

Okay, acuma hai sa-ti spun c-am cit costa viata aici in California.

$800 chirie la un apartament
$150 intretinerea (gaz, electric, si telefon -- apa si gunoiul sint incluse in chiria apartamentului de obicei)
$400 mincarea
$160 benzina la masina ca sa te duci numai la servici si la alimentara

I-ati calculatorul si fa socoteala cu citi bani ramii in mina. Sumele de mai sus sint cit mai conservative, nici cel mai mic exces nu este inclus. Excesul la mine face parte din haine, lucruri pentru igiena, un album de muzica, sau orice altceva vrei tu.

Dupa ce socotesti sa-mi spui tu mie daca taxele platite statului sint prea putine.

International Evidence.

The experience of other nations also provides little support for the notion that guns causecrime:7

Switzerland has one of the lowest murder rates in the world, and it requires all able-bodied males between the ages of 20 and 50 to have a military-issued automatic weapon, ammunition and other equipment in their dwellings.8

Israel, which has an extremely low crime rate but is vulnerable to enemies including terrorists, depends on the defensive value of widespread civilian gun possession.

Denmark and Finland also have high rates of gun ownership and low crime rates.

The experience of these countries shows that widespread gun possession is compatible with low crime rates.

Un Mic Articol - de LMC la: 03/11/2004 22:31:38

Articolul de mai jos a fost scris si publicat de mine acum vreun an in urma. Este in Engleza, asa ca scoateti-va dictionarele.

California’s Economy: A State of Emergency

Recently I came across some articles and reports on the state of California’s economy. The findings will make anyone’s hair stand up on its end. These reports are readily available to the public on California government sites.

As you may already know California’s economy is totally out of control. The poverty rate in California is higher than that of the nation, yet the living expenses for anyone living in California exceeds most of every other American. In other words Californians make less and spend more on basic living expenses.

Anyone who’s been watching the real estate market can agree that it is totally out of control. Anywhere you go in California, especially in the Bay-area, the price of a simple home has sky-rocketed. New houses are more expensive, and less in quality. The price per square foot can exceed as much as $400 to $500 in the Bay, and renters pay as much as $2000 for a one bedroom apartment. At this time the median house price for San Francisco is $526,000 and for the Bay Area is $402,000.

You might say that people in Bay Area make more than the rest of California, and the truth is that they do. The median income for California is about $53,025 while in San Francisco and the Bay Area it ranges from $60,597 to $88,934. Even though these figures seem high, half of all the tax payers in the region earn $30,000 or less, and less than one in every six taxpayers earns at least $100,000. The situation is so bad in the Bay area that they now have a new program called the San Francisco Workforce Housing Fund which provides families with incomes up to $103,320 special mortgage plans to purchase homes up to $475,000. The plan enables someone to finance 97% of the purchase price through a “First Mortgage” and a “Deferred Second Mortgage” of up to 6% to reduce the interest rate on the first mortgage or fund the down payment or closing costs. And these houses can be purchased anywhere within a reasonable commuting distance.

Guess where they go buy their houses? The Central Valley of course!

I must also mention that in the Bay Area a family of four with two working parents would need to earn $61,593 in order to make ends meet and that 2 out of 5 renters spend at least 30% of their income just on rent. All of this means that many families at the median income level struggle to make ends meet, therefore they choose to move somewhere else, (guess where?) and commute.

So now we’re wondering how this affects those who live and work in the Valley. According to the same study, a family of four in the Valley needs to earn at least $43,528 to live without government assistance and make ends meet. The median income for the region is $46,919 and 1 in every 20 taxpayers has an adjusted gross income of at least $100,000, yet more than half of all taxpayers earn $30,000 or less. This means that many families with incomes at or below the median may struggle to meet their economic needs. To make things worse, the influx of Bay Area workers who come to live in the Valley has surged up the prices on housing and everything else. The traffic gets worse and worse everyday, and very seldom does anyone get to see the mountains on the western horizon due to the bad air. The farm land is being desolated, because nobody can afford to keep their workers working the land which makes our produce more expensive.

A couple of weeks ago one of the Central Valley papers had a very interesting article that was discretely criticizing the fact that the housing units being built did not keep up with the increase of population, but if we look at Bay Area’s problems we can conclude that their problems and inadequacies have spilled into the Valley. For example, between 1995 and 1997 the number of jobs in Santa Clara County increased 15.2% while the number of housing units increased by only 1.3%, and it is projected that by the year 2020 the region will gain 50% more jobs but only 20% more housing units.

This information led me to investigate a little further to find out the source of all these problems. Guess what I found? In the California Senate, Bay Area representatives between 1994 and 2000 have made it their war to “protect” the environment and the natural habitat of the Bay Area.

According to the Environmentalists, Bay Area’s legislators are the greenest of them all. These legislators constantly fight against home developments and expansion of housing units into the “sensitive” areas. To protect their image, they encourage concentrated housing, and redevelopment of urban buildings, but the projects they develop for such plans are not realistic and very inefficient. For example, the city of Santa Clara has proposed that 100 apartment units be set aside for low income families. These apartments consist of 2 bedrooms 1 ½ baths and 3 bedrooms 2 baths units. The 2 bedroom apartments rent for the “super low” price of $1230 and the 3 bedroom apartments for $1355. To qualify for this “wonderful” “exciting” “money-saver” housing establishments you must earn at least $29,520 and maximum $57,000 for a three person household in order to rent the 2 bedroom apartment, and for the 3 bedroom at least $32,520 and $68,340 for a five person household. Remember that the median household income for the Bay Area falls somewhere in between $60,597 and $88,934 and a family of four will need to earn at least $61,593 in order to make ends meet without government assistance. Therefore, I must say that somebody has got to go back to their basic Algebra classes, because by my calculations and comparisons I cannot imagine who in his right mind can live in an overcrowded, overstuffed, “low” income apartment and pay $1230 a month, which can be as much as half of their gross income, when in the valley the same apartment can go for $800 (which is still too much in my opinion).

We need to wake up and smell the whiff-of-money-going-down-the-drain, because at this rate California will become a national tragedy. At one time the Associated Press published the following words “California has enacted first-in-the-nation-laws this year... lending credence to the saying that wherever America is going, California will get there first...” Maybe, we should take a long hard look at who is leading this state into the whirlpool of poverty and economic disaster, because if these words are right then the whole nation can follow the footsteps of this once known as the Golden state.

Acest articol a fost scris pe vremea cind Gray Davis era inca Governor, de atunci lucrurile s-au mai schimbat inspre bine. Totusi inca mai suferim consecintele unui liberal al carui plan a fost sa suporte programele sociale mai mult decit cele economice.

Nancy Pelosi este House Minority Leader. Acuma ca Senatorul din South Dakota este un-employed poate il pune pe saracutzul de Kerry la condus ceva prin Senat. Nu stiu care-s rezultatele cu Edwards, o ramas senator pentru North Carolina sau nu? Daca nu atunci e bun de secretar pentru Kerry, are mutra ce-a mai buna pentru pozitie.

Rezultatele din California - de LMC la: 03/11/2004 18:44:21

Pentru cei interesati. Toti stiti ca statul California este cel mai populat stat din America. California este impartita in 58 de "counties" dintre care 37 au votat pentru Bush. Din pacate aceste counties nu sint asa de populate ca cele din zona Los Angeles si San Francisco, unde vreau sa va anunt ca sint cei mai multi homosexuali, mexicani, drogati, si ultra-liberali. Imi pare rau pentru acest "golden state" care pe vremea cind am venit eu in America era cu adevarat de aur. Acuma este infestat de toate plagile liberalismului.
