Fine, stand on principle, but do it someplace else

  1. When one of my kids was little, he ran out into traffic without looking. I spanked his behind. It hurt. He’s 50 years old today and hasn’t been run over once.

    There are times when long term gains involve short term discomfort. Saving up to pay cash for something in order to avoid interest payments is an example of voluntarily assuming a short term discomfort to achieve a long term benefit.

    Forcing me to use credit because the government thinks I’m too poor to save is an insult based on a principle too.

  2. A dose of healthy appreciation for what Everyman has to go to should be at the heart of every politician’s philosophy and principles. Empathy rules.
    That’s the ideal….
