Why Burning Man's New Nonprofit Status Actually Matters

Why Burning Man's New Nonprofit Status Actually Matters

Commented Mar 7, 2014 at 10:56:36 in Arts

“After my 1st Burning Man I returned home telling everyone I met it was "the best sharing event I ever experienced."

Now, the following year I returned with a different cry. For every sharing person (whether it be pancakes, a super salad, pARTy Beads, free pasties (ole' Pasty Dan), etc., I saw a 100 takers.

You are supposed to bring stuff to survive for 10 days (although when I attended they did have coffee, tea and water available. One guy from France came with "nothing" and managed to get free showers, free food, free water, and beyond!

I highly recommend Burning Man though ... it is a positive experience! One of my favorite annual pARTy Events that I have EVER attended.

pARTy On! Burners ...”

“If the USA would stop policing the world the USA could afford the size of the current military to protect our nation by bring the troops to USA soil and have our tax dollars go into our economy rather than the economies of Germany, Japan, and beyond.

We could protect the USA borders and the streets of the USA while we bolster the USA economy.

we do NOT have to be isolationists, the USA could protect the world too (if they paid for the protection of course)”

“To equal the wage gap between woman and men, I think we should meet 50-50 ... pay the men a little less & pay the women a little more.

As a "retired" self-employed entrepreneur, I learned men "expect" too much & believe they are "entitled" to a high wage, whereas females may "accept" a little less, but eventually "prove" they are worth more!

If I had the choice of a male or a female of equal qualifications, I would "always" select the female ... females work harder & produce more than their equal counterpart of a male!

You can't blame him for everything his people do ... successful people are NOT micro-managers! The goal of a good leader is to surround himself/herself with people smarter than they are that make you look good. "Most" of the times it works!
