Do people sometimes remain poor because of their day-to-day choices?

Do time-management choices impact a person’s career outcome?

Sometimes it is more difficult to find work in one area, than in another area. If a person is living in an economically depressed place, then does it make sense for them to consider moving to a region where the job prospects are brighter?

    funny, sad, and true hope I can help myself, my generation, and the next ones to see the light

    Nice comics. Howabout people drinking in the middle of the day and sitting onthe porch?

    Another idea might b with how students avoid doing there homework. What are the excuses that they give themselves to justify/explain their inactivity?

    How about some new comics?

    How about some gag lyrics to popular tunes that make fun of the lazy lifestyle? For example, MAD Magazine does stuff like that all the time and it is really funny.

    How much self-inflicted pain should a person be allowed to experience before the community becomes obligated to provide him with goods and services to soothe his self-created discomfort?

    How about a cartoon with three characters – superman, a slug and then, in the middle, reasonable-exertion-man. I want to be REM. And he is wearing normal looking clothes. No cape. No fanfare. Slug-Man could be fused to the couch – or on a spring connected to the couch.

    Does Psychological Inertia Exist?

    Objects in motion tend to stay in motion. Objects at rest tend to stay at rest. Human habits mirror this physical property. Don’t waste time being upset or depressed over the fact that you have already wasted so much time being upset and depressed. Cartoon with frantic looking person and many clocks (representing wasted time) surrounding him. Then in the next panel – some clocks are labeled past some are labeled future – and one tiny tiny little clock is labeled: Right-Now!

    Here’s a cartoon idea – a fellow at the gym has big muscles in the upper body, but weak muscles in the lower body. He has a wheel-chair. Someone asks him about it and he says: “Oh, I can walk just fine – but I just don’t like to – so eventually my leg muscles became kind of weak from dis-use. So now-a-days I just use this wheelchair to get around!” That could fit with the article about A Good Work Ethic. Exerting in some ways, but not in others. Or Fun and Easy vs Boring and Difficult.

    Cartoon for: Is Everyone Equally Worthy Of Freedom?

    1. Through a process of great struggle and bloodshed, a tyrannical government is replaced by a constitution republic (CR).
    2. Initially, the annual works and acts of the CR is of a manageable size for citizens to read and understand. So the majority of the citizenry are able to follow and understand the works and laws of the CR. The majority of the citizenry use their knowledge of the works and laws of the government in order to wisely select new leaders at the next election cycle.
    3. Banks and corporations and special interests begin to lobby the government to increase the size and complexity of laws and works and acts so as, ostensibly, to benefit the citizenry.
    3. The annually written laws and acts become so wordy and unclearly written that the proportion of average citizens who have the time and inclination to read and understand the works tapers off over time.
    4. Meanwhile, the banks and corporations hire full time lawyers who work to a) understand the *real*, underlying, simplified meanings of the laws and b) encourage the writing of more and even less comprehensible laws.
    5. The banks and corporations purchase newspapers and tv stations to disingenuosly summarize the supposedly salient points of the annual laws and then present these points to the public in order to control their voting preferences.
    6. The annual works and laws of the CR quickly become so large and difficult to understand that all but a very few of the public (outside the banks and corporations) are able and willing to spend the time to understand them.
    7. At this point it becomes very easy for the banks and corporations to slip malicious viral code into the annual output of laws and works – because so very few of the people are willing to spend the time to understand the laws.
    8. The viral injections of corrupt laws eventually result in the destruction of the CR and the return of a new tyrannical government.
    9. The new tyrannical government revokes the right of the citizenry to read and learn so as to keep them in ignorance as to their true heritage of freedom and the corrupt state of the current government.
    10. In summary, the failure of the citizenry to invest the time and effort to independently read and learn and think results in their loss of the freedom to independently read and learn and think.

    Cartoon: A rich college student is leaving to go to a party.  He says to his poor roommate: “Here’s $40.  I want you to spent the next 5 hours doing my homework for me and … studying for my test.”  His roommate turns to him and says, “Well, I would be happy to do your homework for cash … but [then he gets a quizzical look on his face] I don’t think it is possible for me to study for you.”  Suddenly the rich student wakes up from a dream drenched in sweat.  And he realizes that he is going to fail tomorrow’s test because he didn’t study – and all of his money will not be able to help him.
