Winter came early this year!

And it's shaping up to be a wild one all over the world. In my little spot in the world, it's a mess and I'm running out of places to put all the snow because here we don't get above 32 degrees more than a hand full of times until March, which is also your snowiest month of the year. What the sun manages to melt, just ends up becoming ice when the sun goes  down anyway.  When spring finally does come to us in Minnesota I feel sorry for anyone living near the Mississippi and Minnesota rivers because they will both  reach flood stage and stay that way for awhile. The Mississippi flow south all the way to the gulf of Mexico. The Minnesota is more problematic because it flows south through St. Paul then slowly turns to flow north to Canada so it floods almost every year. Knowing that everyone is or will be needing to deal with some kind of weather or the after math of this weather, that hasn't been seen before. Some may say it's a sign of the end of days, sorry but I strongly disagree after taking the life blood out of the earth, at such a high rate for so many years, I think every thing  that's happening now is related to what humans have done. We think we're so smart without looking at cause and affect of what our actions will have on this planet we call home.

This last part took on a life  of it's own, it is what I think and how I feel so I'm going to keep it in. Realizing if we don't start learning from history. It will continue repeating it until the day we finally understand when greed is allowed to remain unchecked a free market sytem only works for a few and not for everyone. As most of us know a free lunch isn't really free.

How many civilizations have died off that we don't know the reasons why? In the last hundred years, we have learned many things that's true, in all honesty we know more about outer space then we know about how this planet works and why it works. Everything has a price tag if people need it to survive the price goes up if people don't want it anymore it's value becomes zero. When the life of one person becomes more valuable then another and when profits are more important then the people who made the products that made the profits in the first place. The stock market is a form of gambling that can, has and will be manipulated by a few and wall street always wins. Going public by putting your company in the stock market is the fastest way of losing control of it. Because once other people own shares you end up working for them instead of doing what best for you and the people that work for you. The love of money is greed and wall street doesn't produce anything yet the ceos make up to a 100,000% more than the lowest paid employee, I don't believe that's a wise way of doing business, however it will make you very rich. But at what cost?
