As I wander through some of my RSS feeds and emails I find it amazing how some otherwise intelligent and rational people can believe some of the most amazing urban legends. I also notice a great deal of contradiction in the behaviors of come people and the comments they might make. That brings me to a list of YIZIT. A YIZIT is not an oxymoron, but an observation of how sometimes behaviors doesn't mesh with what people wonder. Meaning "Why Is It That", WIZITs poke fun at some of the 'remember when' emails with the possibility that the panderer contributes to what they are complaining about. Just read along.
YIZIT that people who forward sayings that 'Jesus is the Reason for the Season' are first in line fighting people for good deals at Wal Mart on the start of "Black Friday"?
YIZIT that people who say that we are too easy on people today and need to make people pay for their own actions want to lower the bar and let Pete Rose into the Hall of Fame?
YIZIT that people will believe that the new dollar doesn't have 'In God We Trust' on it, are the same ones that complain we don't use a gold standard for our money valuation?
YIZIT that people save their money to go out of state or out of the country for vacation complain that there's nothing to do around here.
YIZIT that people will buy American flags made in China?
YIZIT that people who complain they don't get customer service as they used to, are the first ones to jump to something cheaper to save a penny. That penny is saved by the company by cutting customer service or using phone prompts.
YIZIT that people will say we should punish France for not supporting the Iraq war, celebrate the 4th of July?
YIZIT that people who blame unions for all the problems with American industry celebrate Labor Day?
YIZIT that people who benefited from government sponsored programs in the past, refuse to support them for the youth of today? (public school, parks, and student loans)
YIZIT that some people will read this list and be offended? It's just to provoke thoughts, not judge.
