      I can't help nurturing existential conversation. The last sentence of my previous post was a nod to you. All power resides in the collective individual!

      > Mary and Wil, you are about to send me into rant. Not against you but for you ,I have had a day of endless disappointment. So many people just blew so many things I am left in disbelief. They were relatively small things except the 11,000$ failure to comply. In each case the responsible person just did not care that they had failed, did not care they had failed their fellow workers, felt no responsibility that they just couldn`t make it work. Then I read Brandons whining, snivvling manifesto of failure. He finds no responsibility for being detatched from his own life, according to him he could do nothing anyway.
      > When Mary brought up Rosa Parks I literally cheered and when Wil stated in no uncertain terms that such a life attitude was non existential I thought I had gotten on the time machine and gone back to a sane world.
      > Today an employee was boasting that her son had fathered a child,he is eighteen,a high school dropout and unemployed. She is a part time maid and is on welfare and food stamps. Then she blurted out she had lost the keys to my property. She really did not care because she is planning for the wedding. I had to walk away as I knew I was close to a law suit.
      > The government may shut down but there is nothing but finger pointing. Responsibility,none, just excuses and failure without remorse.
      > Another business associate `s two sons,each with two children face foreclosure and eviction. He plans to take them all in but levies no blame for their enemployment and bankrupcy. The children, both in their fortys , must be protected. These are strapping men in their prime who have languished on unemployment for over a year, they will not take menial work. That means they will not get dirty.
      > Just put the scum in the joint has been the answer to minority criminality so we spend more on jails than college and now the system is splitting at the seams. The prisinors have little remorse and the only ones worried are the guards who like their jobs with cushy bennies.
      > I want out of this !It is madness and trying to operate in such an environment just opens up way too much risk. I think we are seeing a genetic failure. Some dilution of the human genome is taking place. All these listless ,shaded people cannot function in the complex environment that we have built. I fear the mixing pool has diluted itself beyond recovery. Sorry for the gloom but they just piled it on all day and the only respite came from you two. Thanks ,Bill
