Don't Read This

OK - so you don't follow directions, take advice or read Warning Labels very well.
Me either.
Rules were made to be broken, right?

Here's the thing: nobody likes bad news. Especially if it's going to require a change, to get out of your "comfort zone". But when a bad storm is approaching, even those who eschew "bad news" will tune in for the latest weather report. That information - however scary - becomes a life line (see Katrina et al).

Talk Radio teaches the practitioner a few things. Everybody has an opinion and most people have little-to-no factual clue what their talking about or why they believe it. For most, they "heard it somewhere". For others, their opinions are based on the adrenalin of their emotions, their feelings: "I feel Obama is doing a great job." Fine - but what do you think? More appropriately: Do you think?

Two great quotes to take with you:
        "You are entitled to your own opinion, but not your own facts"
                         Daniel Patrick Moynihan
                 
 "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of      avoiding reality
                                Ayn Rand


These are "focusing quotes". When applied, they compel one to stay focused on the issue at hand and not wander off into the weeds of rhetoric and irrelevance.

That circles us back to the Warning Label above. Here are two articles (and a short vid) you should not read if you are allergic to disturbing news supported by facts or you prefer feelings to reality.

If you're read this far, I suspect you will click here and then here.

You're welcome.

From The Next President

To any aspiring Democratic politician:

If you'd like to be President one day --  Maybe soon --  Put the following in a full page ad in the WaPo, get yourself booked on some talk shows and read this: 


An Open Letter from a Democratic Politician to all Democratic Politicians

My fellow Democrats – Let's face it; we blew it. Lead by Speaker Pelosi, Chairman Schiff and Chairman Nadler, these past 3 years we have conducted ourselves in a way that has severely divided America. Continuing with this impeachment hoax – and it is a hoax and we all know it - will only destroy the Democratic Party and impugn all the great principles we once stood for. Our Leadership – and our so-called 'friends' in the media – have strongly encouraged, even threatened us, if did not 'toe the line'. As a result, regardless of where you're from or how long you've been in office, very few of us will be returning after the coming elections.


We have only one choice to save America and th…

My Vote This Time

Maybe if I post it here, the phone will stop ringing, the mailbox will unclog and everyone who really really wants to know will….know.

Actually, I’m really excited about my guy! Can’t say I’ve ever been this stoked about a candidate! How could anyone not be?
Unlike the Dems, he has definitive, articulate plans for the future;

Unlike Warren, he has no doubts about his lineage;

Unlike Biden, he has never flip-flopped on essential issues, plagurized someone else's work, does push-ups, has had a face life or sports hair plugs;

Unlike Kamala Harris, he became a success the old fashioned way: he earned it. While standing upright.

Unlike Spartacus, while born in New Jersey, he is not delusional, minds his manners and maintains a full head of hair;

Unlike Bernie Sanders, he is unlike Bernie Sanders;

The same can be said for the rest of the Democratic Wanna-Be's.

The person I’m voting for has always been courteous and responsive to my queries and honestly concerned about my concerns for the fu…
