I have needs here

From each according to his ability. To each according to his needs. Something like that. Good old Karl Marx. A lazy sack of $%^ that did not like to work. Of course he came up with those words. He could not succeed at anything and was trying to convince anyone who had succeeded that they needed to give their earnings to people like him.

I have always wonderd, who gets to decide what our abilites are? Likewise, who decides what our needs are? I am good at swinging a hammer. So if I swing my hammer, I produce something. When I produce something, I get paid. When I get paid, I buy things. Is there a point when I have too much ability? If I, due to my too much ability, am able to produce more than I need (according to someone else), what happens to it? Should I hide my ability to produce too much? Would I not be better off if I just produced what I need, instead of working harder in order to produce for someone else?

If I need a Porsche and a 40' sport cruiser, are those valid needs? What if my house is only 6000 sq. ft.? I need more. I only have one masters degree. These are all needs as far as I am concerned. Do I get to voice my opinion with the "needs" committee or do they just tell me to take a number?

What about food? Can I grow my own? Is there a limit on how much I get to keep? Who do I give it to, or does the government just come and take it from me?

As you can see, I am a bit confused with how this is going to work. Maybe some of the Obama supporters out there could give me some inside information. How about it you Obama folks? I am sure you have thought this one through? Cut me some inside knowledge?

You are joking right, Mr. Robinson. Oh, you are not joking, Mr. Biden and Mr. Obama have to answer that question. Too bad I am going to have to ban this post from any of my future administrations from commenting. That was a low blow, and totally uncalled for, actually wanting me to explain my "redistribution of waelth" comments. You must be one of those right wing wackos...I am totally insulted with the question?

Kevin....I think you should look up the difference betwen a "want" and a "need"

Joan,

My point is that we are in for the govt to decide who needs what and who can do what. It is coming if he gets elected. Read what he has written over the years. Obama is a Marxist at the core.

Kevin, Biden has too much hair and I need some, Think he will help me out?

Hugh,

Biden could stand to lose a little attitude. His hair plugs are too expensive and he probably wont part with them.

Kevin,

It is just like my old union days.  Lazy people everywhere!  Where there any hard workers?  Yes.  Where they hated by the lazy ones?  Yes!  I was one of them.  Here are some samples of things I heard.

"Slow down, you are going to make the rest of us look bad.", "If you keep doing that much, then our standards will go up." 

Anyway, when people lose their incentive to work, I think it makes them lazy.  They were not worried about getting fired because they THOUGHT that the union would protect them and that was true most of the time but a lot of them are gone now from what I hear.  Guess they were forced to get a real job!
