Tragic

December 8, 2013

It is tragic. All around the world too many people have lost a sincere purpose to live, act, and do or say just about anything. Tragedy is the best way I can describe it but really it's much worse....

Everyone does and should act in what they perceive to be their self-interest. A rational person realizes it’s in his or her best interest to treat other people like he or she would like others to treat them.

I agree with this letter.

That being said: being kind to others and being yourself usually keeps people in a low paying job. You feel good about yourself but that just does not pay the bills. Then you see others being self-centered and only out for themselves get more and more. Some on welfare have learned to play the system, yet when you need a helping hand you are told sorry can't help YOU. Business people take advantage of your kindness and push for more.

That being said I will continue to be kind to others and lend a helping hand to those I come across. I can't be any other way.

I echo CarlHiller's comments. The borrowing and printing of more money has lead to inflation; even as people say look at the stock markets they are at record levels, they are with inflated dollars and you still can not get as much real value.

Outside of that, this is the best LTE today. It helps provide hope in tough times, it provides guidelines for our lives in dealing with others and certain situations; it shows that we don't need to live the life of false perceptions to please other people; it shows we should trust in God; and it is a great piece of encouragement.

As RG III used to say to incoming freshmen when he was the quarterback at Baylor University....... BU self at Baylor University.

Actually businesses reactions to 'costs' causes inflation. The writer is correct in his letter.

While he writes a good letter, sincerity doesn't pay the bills.

While I like the letter Derek, your statement, " I would venture that about 50 percent of the root cause of inflation is from issues related to the lack of sincerity in the work place today." is wrong. All inflation can be traced to the FED, the TBTF banks and those elected and unelected bureaucrats in government.

Very nice letter Derek. Honesty and integrity begin at home. I still believe if you teach those traits early in life and set the example, it goes a long way in life.
