Today Must be Math Day

Today I ran across two separate math articles from two different sources.

The first was a video from a segment on the Dave Ramsey show. He talks about Obamacare and how you are not exempt from math regardless of whether you are a Republican or a Democrat. He also mentions the effects of being forced to purchase insurance. Have a look:

The second was an article brought to my attention by a friend:

The modern-day ‘slave class’ is anyone who cannot do math… and that’s about 95% of the population (click here)

Overall, it is a good read. I do not agree 100% with everything the article has to say. For example, I understand that it is a wise decision to transfer risk by purchasing certain types of insurance (such as term life insurance and homeowner’s insurance). The article does bring up the control factor of taxation and the national debt. That, I can certainly appreciate.

There was a slight bit of overlap between the two, but they underlying premise is more or less the same:

You are not excused from math!

It does not matter what you believe or don’t believe either side of politics.

  • Do not fall victim to any of the “loudest voice in the room” arguments on either side of the political spectrum
  • Do not buy into the euphemisms designed to cover up the theft imposed on you by the government
  • Do not be fooled by the trickery used to mask the true nature of our country’s dire financial situation
