Well, it didn’t take long.
On July 13, 2021 I published this column about stupid people who choose to risk getting COVID rather than getting vaccinated: Intelligent People Who Choose To Do Stupid Things Are Stupid People. Those who choose to believe the lies that COVID is a fake disease have chosen to be stupid people
Preferring To Get Pneumonia AGAIN Than Be Vaccinated
On July 21, 2021 CBS News published a story about Louisiana resident and proud Republican, Scott Roe, hospitalized with COVID and pneumonia, who said that if he had it to do all over again he would…
People have spent a good deal of time analyzing the demographics of the individuals who voted for Trump and who voted for Biden.
I decided to take a look at the qualities of the states that were the biggest Trump strongholds (Big Trump States) and states that were the home to the biggest percentages of Biden supporters (Big Biden States) to see if there were characteristics shared by the states in each camp.
The Big Trump & The Big Biden States
I’ve listed the top sixteen states that went for each…
My last column was about stupid people:
After reading it, a world-famous-scientist friend of mine told me:
“Dave, the big problem is that stupid people don’t know it [that they’re stupid] because of their condition. In the past morons and idiots were not a real problem. …
Way back in September 2013 I published a column titled: “What Is A Smart Person? Why Do Smart People Sometimes Say & Do Stupid Things?”
Lately, I’ve been thinking about writing a related column, What Is A Stupid Person?
An intelligent person believing something based on evidence or logic is making an intellectual choice to be smart.
An intelligent person choosing to believe a lie contradicted by evidence or logic is making an emotional choice to be stupid.
Someone whose intellectual ability to see the truth is overruled by their emotional…
The Mind-Boggling Strategy Of Getting More Workers By Paying A Higher Wage!
A few years ago a large farming operation in Northern California complained that they “couldn’t hire any workers!” Finally, desperate to try anything, no matter how crazy, to get more workers they raised their pay from $11/hour to $13/hour.
Suddenly, they found that they could hire all the workers they needed. What a shocking, crazy strategy! Who would have ever thought that offering higher pay would attract more job applicants?
For two dollars per hour more, their “labor shortage”…
Three Rules Of Human Nature:
1) Buying More Than You Think You Can Use Is Contrary To Human Nature
First, people hate buying more of something than they think they can use, so they will resist doing that.
Even if the cost per fluid ounce for your shampoo is low, few people will be willing to buy shampoo in a five gallon container. A business model based on selling shampoo in five gallon containers is contrary to human nature and will have a very limited demographic.
2) Buying Something When You…
The So-Called Freedom To Refuse To Wear A Mask
For the last several months we’ve heard all the usual libertarian/anarchist baloney about people needing to be free to refuse to wear a mask — Personal freedom, left-wing plot, fake disease, being in control of our own bodies, making decisions for ourselves, rugged individualism, blah, blah, blah.
With Freedom Comes Responsibility
Like most libertarian demands for freedom, their arguments are based on the notion, fantasy, lie, that people have a right to do things that risk damage to others (not wear a…
Imposing Laws Based On Ideology Instead Of Practicality
It’s not unusual for some ideological group to get control of a country and impose laws based on what these theorists think God wants, what is sinful and what is holy, or what is morally fair or unfair.
These rules might be the principles of Sharia Law, the values of the Temperance League, communism, libertarianism, fundamentalist Christianity, whatever, but they all have one thing in common:
The Cluelessness Of Those In Power
I think that in the months and weeks before the peasants dragged out the guillotine, the French aristocracy had no idea how much trouble they were in, and I suspect that the Russian aristocracy was similarly clueless in the days before they all went down the well.
The Democrats Are Similarly Asleep At The Switch
Today, I think that the Democrats are almost equally as blind to the frustration, anger and, yes, rage of at least a third to forty-percent of the population who are…
Estimating The Break-Even Sales Volume
A company seeking additional investment should be giving the proposed investors (or including in its SEC filings) sufficient information for an experienced accountant to be able to create graphs of projected
so that the investor can see the level of sales volume where the gross receipts line is projected to exceed the total costs line, that is the volume of sales the company projects it will need to…
