At 25 mpg, it costs me $0.127 per mile. Some of our deliveries are 13 miles in travel, costing me $1.65 in gas. Is it right that Domino is, in effect, making me pay to deliver their pizzas? One of their mottos is "putting people [their employees] first". I'm beginning to doubt the positive implication that such a motto should have. One of the companies demands upon its employees is "integrity". Integrity? Where is the integrity when a company scams its employees?

So the question is whether PayPerPost is a valid business idea or not. People usually benefit after reading about a product or service or even a new idea. If the article was written by a news reporter or movie reviewer or professional writer, someone was compensated. Since I’m not a professional writer and I get paid for sharing my experience in the form of a blog, should that matter to the reader?
I’m assuming that Mr. Murphy’s concept of paying for a post is a legitimate one. If so, I’m not sure how getting paid for blogging your thoughts is going to ruin the Internet. Granted, Mr. Murphy isn’t paying the gobs of money that famous stars and athletes get for their endorsements. But for all their money, the world doesn’t seem to be any worse off. We need to look back on this after a year’s time and see what has changed, what has gotten better or worse from this exercise in capitalism. I have feeling that things will be alright.

Today we Americans celebrate the 230th anniversary of winning our freedom from a three percent taxation. It wasn't the amount of the taxation that we celebrate. Rather, we won freedom from the idea that a government can tax without appropriate representation in that government. Things are much better now. Our money is taken by people who have been selected by "all of us". This, of course, makes them are our government. Fortunately, this representation has allowed them to take -- not ask, not earn, but take -- over half of our money. Not surprisingly, families have to have two or more wage earners to live. Still, we are a Christian nation, or so I am repeatedly told. This means our representatives are free from the commandment "Thou shalt not steal" .... somehow. And once our representatives, local, state and federal, take our money, we are very free to do anything we like with those remaining hard earned wages.... provided we have the permission of our representatives. Yes, thank god for our freedom and god bless
