    Coffee House and Bull$hit: Two Kinds of People
    Boondog Saints

    "There's two kinds of people in this world when you boil it all down. You got your talkers and you got your doers. Most people are just talkers, all they do is talk. But when it is all said and done, it's the doers that change this world.

    And when they do that, they change us, and that's why we never forget them. So which one are you? Do you just talk about it, or do you stand up and do something about it? Because believe you me, all the rest of it is just coffee house and bull$hit."

    Thank you Todd.
    You are 100% correct. Turk..you as well.

     

    TV? Cable news programs? CNN? MSNBC? FOX?

     

    They are all one in the same. i have been speaking about this for years. There is no 2 party, 3 party, any party system in the US anymore. It amazes me that people still get worked up watching these channels thinking that what they are receiving in real news.

     

    As someone who came from nothing, had no benefit of family wealth or anything for that matter i can truly attest that if you as a person desire to be something, have anything, you can do it. You can make a difference not only for yourself, your family and eventually for others, as I try to do now.

     

    Unfortunately we have to many people looking to be taken care of, and then when it all goes bad they blame everyone...except for themselves.

    Author’s reply » HI Archman, if I watch a show - it's for entertainment. Plenty of people take the shows very personally. TJ

    Warren Buffett referred to all of the talk, talk, talk as NOISE. He said that you have to tune out the NOISE in order to make smart investment decisions. There is definitely a lot of talk, talk, talk on business channels today. Why is that? Talk is cheap. It does not cost much to hire a talking head. In order to make smart investment decisions, you have to tune out 99.99 percent of the NOISE.

    Author’s reply » HI buyandhold,

     

    One has to filter out "relevant info" from "noise". Free articles, CNBC, Bloomberg are not going to put premiere content out for $0.

     

    Relevant content comes through selected channels.

     

    I agree with you 100%.

     

    I just tune out overhyped promises given to me by Human Sixpack on CNBC.

     

    Life isn't a "everything is free" parade. TJ
