The dishonesty of sharing

Published:

Why does Rick G have his LP thong caught up in his butt about sharing? I'll tell you why.

First of all, "sharing" is a communist concept. The communists who thought this up were smart folks. They knew they could exploit this idea by taking and not giving. Who's manning the cash register to tally the takes and gives?

Is sharing wrong? Not by any means and in fact sharing information has led to all of our civilization's successes. Anyone that knows me knows that I share anything and everything that I know. It becomes wrong when the scale is not balanced. The Soviet Union, Cuba, China and North Korea learned this lesson early and used it to the benefit of the powers-that-be for the last half century. The common man in these countries never benefited from this unbalanced distribution of "wealth".

But taking information (or anything for that matter) and not giving anything in return makes you a thief.

That is why I'm pissed that a certain person who uses the word "sharing" as a predominant word in their vocabulary has not shared anything with me and yet wins our state lottery more often than me on the prediction board but has yet to divulge how they are doing it. Oddly enough, they are still asking for "sharing".

So this boy here is not being a commie anymore. Long live capitalism, individual initiative and honesty forever. If I see that inane phrase "would you share..." again on the forums, I'll take my complaint out of the blog and into the forums and I'll be pointing fingers and naming names.

If you're going to share my pot you damned well better share the toilet paper as well.

I've tried three times and every time the title of this blog didn't register properly. Two different mistakes, omitting words. (It's not my computer or my browser).

Unless the word "sharing" is banned, the proper title of the final edit was supposed to be "The dishonesty of sharing".

The word "sharing" is certainly not censored. I struck it in there for you.

Yep,
I have seen a long time forum member from maybells and here tout about sharing. Posted on the forum about sharing systems.
I have not seen this member share anything.
Give me, give me, give me.
And screw you.

John,

I just caught your reply. We are talking about the same person.
But they won't read this because it is only words, not free lottery information. Sometimes I wonder if there's not a lottery systems book in the making? A compendium so to speak. Makes you leery of posting things here anymore. Is our publicly offered free information being compiled for their own benefit for sale? No wonder there isn't much cooperation on these forums anymore.

You make an excellent observation, Rick. One of the reasons I say "No" when people ask "Will you give me some?" is because I want to be honest. Maybe the man in front of me at Publix who said to the clerk (who never asked him in the first place) "If I win tonight, I'll give you a million dollars" was 100% serious about it. Nobody won last week, so we'll never know. I won't bore people with my too long list of sales jobs, but one reason I had trouble working on commission in a store is because every salesperson wants you to split your sales but they never want to share when it's their turn.

I love your toilet paper analogy. You're not from Flushing are you? (groan)

Justx,

That was exactly my point. Sharing is a two-way street but the nefarious among us like to keep it a one-way street and in their direction.

Good one about "Flushing"...lol...no, I'm not from there...but I've rodded out enough sewer lines to think so!   ;)
