Flint, Michigan: Who is to blame?

January 21, 2016

American education? Teachers are not trained to teach what the people need to know about water, moral behavior, responsibility and law. Citizens elect water management directors, mayors and governors who do not know how to do things. The people identify with incompetent leaders who learned to talk like Obama, real sleek talkers. I’m not just saying things, let’s take a few things and analyse them. What is the difference between blame and responsibility? Most educated people don’t know. CNN mentioned blame, there is no blame here, the water got contaminated because the leaders there were not educated in water management. You can’t blame incompetent people or their voters. They are responsible for the mess because they caused it,  but you can’t blame them because they didn’t know what to do with water.

American psychology? Teachers of psychology are not trained to teach what the people need to know about human behavior. The people who contaminated the water made bad decisions for 10 years and no one told them that bad decisions lead to bad consequences. They watched Obama for 8 years and saw him make bad decisions while his rating as a great president went up. People realized that personal accountability was not important under Bush and Obama, the bankers cheated us and stole our money and no one was fired. Trump wasn’t there to say, “You are fired.” Obama and Bush had a terrible trait of “I forgive you instantly because you are my friend.”  The American leaders during Bush (Bremer) that caused ISIS to appear got promoted and the general under Obama who won the war in Iraq got demoted! Bet you the Michigan governor won’t be fired. I bet you Flint Mayor won’t be fired. I can’t wait for January 20, 2017 when Trump takes over and ACCOUNTABILITY will become a clean word. You infiltrate from the south and you have to go back, you masquerade as a refugee and you have to go back, you kill a policeman and you have to go to jail. And, by the same token, you go to school and work hard and you can get a well paid job! I know your educational experience makes you not like Trump but he will clean your water, dude!

Does Unemployment Benefits Prevent You From Getting a Job?

March 12, 2010

The smart people who follow my no-nonsense blog already know that my answers to most questions are simple, to the point, have no spin, and can make a big difference in anyone’s life. My answer to the question above is  the mother of all answers!

If you don’t already know from reading my websites and blogs what is contingency management of relationships, read my ‘stuff’ on the Internet again and again until you do. I cannot help improve anyone’s life on the fly. All the fly by night visitors to my blog will get is, “I agree,” or “I disagree,” or some other bull…a low level of understand predicaments. Life doesn’t work by “posturing.” You have to become committed to what works, what psychological research discovers, and what the truth is. And, you have to be committed to it with all your heart and mind, with intention to know, otherwise, answers that are not comfortable will be left by the wayside and will have no good impact in your life.

With that “sermon”, if you are ready (big “if”), here is the mother of all answers, a solution that will apply to any question that you would ever pose: Whenever you have an issue, plug-in you issue in the following blank, Contingency Management of ________, in our case it would be Contingency Management of Unemployment Benefits, and the answer would be, “Contingency management of unemployment benefits will not prevent you from getting a job. In fact, it would be a step toward a career.” Listen, I was one of the most popular professors of psychology in the State of California for 27 years, and students who learned the above (about 20%) are living an incredible lives today. One student who became a dentist wrote, “Dr. Kinarthy, I was a poor student and could not afford the tuition increases. My issue was, “How do I set up a contingency management of tuition and living expenses while in school? Ones I learned to do it (it was easy), I had enough money to work my way to a DD degree. Thanks!” (to be continued).
