    The teachers in my state of Wisconsin protested at the capitol starting in February, I believe. Unsure how long they were there. Our newly elected governor stripped some of the union's power, so educators were not happy.

    What an interesting day I've had! 75% staff on strike and only a handful left including me. I just did a bit of admin. I'm not on a union. No science teachers at all. Most schools apart from private ones were on strike. The news says that 2 million people were on strike today.

    It makes me sad to think we are getting further and further away from a happy and balanced world.
    Times are tough what ever happened to being responsible for your self.
    Your job is a result of the work,study and effort put in during your life. Your own choices etc
    Your wages equate to the same .
    I wish everyone would realize that life is not about entitlement and what you can get out of it ,but an opportunity to contribute and be the best you can.
    Perhaps we have all been living beyond our means for quite some time.
    Start looking at what we have and appreciate that we live privileged lives .
    Choose happiness over greed.
    Happiness is free and we all have a choice
    I choose happiness.

    We are still largely happy, I should think. There are problems elsewhere, so perhaps I misspoke. The world is not happy, but it has never been truly happy, either.

    I'll suggest that if you are not happy, take steps to get happy. I always visit YouTube and look at the Cute Kittens videos. Can't be too sad when you look at kittens clapping, fat kittens dancing, kittens talking, and kittens in various and sundry containers doing all manner of kitteny things. Well, unless you are dead inside.

    Go to Youtube and search this: The Florin Street Band. Look for their Christmas song, "My Favorite Time of Year."

    This month on cable, you can find "The Man Who Saved Christmas." The story of A.C. Gilbert, inventor of The Erector Set, among other things. You will feel great because it shows one man can make a difference for the entire country. Gilbert put the spirit of a nation above cash and government contracts.

    There will always be unhappy people. Some are unhappy because they want more and can only afford less and only if they can get credit which is in the dumpster. Others are unhappy because their Power Ball numbers did not come up. Others are unhappy because of current events and some are naturally unhappy regardless of what happens. They are like Marvin the depressed robot. Any hitchhikers fans?

    Some are happy to such a degree that it makes me sick.

    I recently saw a 'Save the Children' commercial. The foundation wants money to feed the starving. I switched to another channel and saw Punkin Chunkin. People spending thousands of dollars just to toss perfectly good food as far as possible. I felt more sadness for the losers of the distance toss than the kids. How sad am I? I recall the Katrina coverage on TV and between the coverage there were Pizza Hut and McDonald's commercials. Seems rather odd. We are a sad world but in this country, even the poor can get by. Many have cell phones and TVs and cars. Many hate the dems and many hate the other side and do not know why.

    Others are upset because they cannot have it all and others had it all and are miffed because they are going to jail for not paying taxes.

    I am happy because what I do have is paid for. I am happy I woke up this AM and I am happy my free battery for my phone arrived yesterday. It restored my faith in large corporations. I sold a book and I am happy that the first draft is almost done. I am happy because I am getting a new Banjo and I am happy because I am healthy. I am happy the cat is acting like a crazy cat and I found my keys so I can finally leave the house. I am happy I am not nagged to death by some woman telling me what's what and sad that there is no permanent woman in my life.

    That last one is my fault. Perhaps I'll start a wife wanted thread in the IPF.

    Not sure what people should do. Perhaps we are too invested in the media; the good and the bad and the ugly are a tad too pervasive and we are exposed to far too much coverage of current events. So we are sad, sad, sad.

    I suggest cute kittens videos on YouTube to start. Remember, Santa will arrive soon, so there is that at least.

    Wow, this thread is getting deep. The philosophy aired strikes so many chords with us here at home.

    My wife is of a different nationality to me. I have lived in various parts of the world. Between us, our experiences of different cultures have laid a great foundation to appreciate what different cultures and people have to offer.

    We have both worked hard to get where we are, and are very happy. The troubles we see are disturbing. The extensive reporting of trouble is facilitated by the ease of communication, and human nature to indulge in "bad news". A positive approach to life, and a sense of humour, should go a long way to improving our lot.
