“Person of the Year”
Oh boy – here we go with “Person of the Year” awards…
I’m going to start this out with the fact that I am not a big fan of “________ of the year” awards. People, entities and businesses should be quietly recognized (and supported) continuously – not in some curated and exclusionary list of “haves” and “have-nots.” So as a result, I have to pick-apart a “Person of the Year” article that some website published recently.
They pleaded to readers to “help” them pick the “Person of the Year” in their bland little community. (They did NOT have the balls to call it on their own – quite typical to use “group think” to defer the responsibility of a decision to others. So even if the top vote-getter only gets 21%, they still win – and no one can blame a single individual for that outcome. Hey, doesn’t that remind you of the last Hoboken election?) But I digress…
Worst Person of the Year list ever
- (some dude), for organizing the public school referendum (waste of time!)
- (another indoctrinated dope), for getting more youth into environmentalism (really?)
- (some lady), for donating a kidney to save a life (maybe not so bad – but shouldn’t that be private?)
- (another chick), for her fund raising for breast cancer (the least efficient “charity” on earth…)
- (and a couple dudes), for helping homeless veterans (do we even need to go there?)
Is that list SCREAMING “progressive” bullshit or what?
My opinion of why anyone might attempt that pathetic list is to indirectly coerce the winner(s) into giving money away. We’ll keep an eye on that for you.
Don’t you think there are more sensible “person of the year” lists anywhere?
The BEST of the Year should be:
- More people who received, challenged (and beat) vehicular summonses. “Starve the beast.”
- The people who managed to lower their property taxes by the biggest percentage (or largest single dollar amount).
- Communities who figured out the best way to trade, barter, and interact with friends, neighbors and other crafts-people not using cash or credit.
- Those who fought strongest to maintain independent thought-processes and logical thinking.
- The people (or businesses) who succeeded the most in terms of profit – without donating a dollar to a politician or major charity.
Can you tell the difference between these two “Person of the Year” lists?
