All this Vitriol and hatred will get us nowhere.

Good day my friends.   I am sure you are all tired by now of the rhetoric we hear on a daily basis from Politicians of all stripes and of course the countless talking heads and pundits visible daily on all media.  I too listen intently and by so doing , I realize that most of the verbiage is sheer platitudes and in my opinion, not very thoughtful commentary.  This I find most unfortunate as I see my fellow citizens in many cases swallowing verbatim what they have been spoon fed.  Actually it is somewhat frightening as the country continues in the dumbing down process.  As a major advocate of critical thinking, it brings tears to my eye’s ( for those who know me well , not likely real tears )  at a lack of same.  I prefer to see the best in all and pity the unfortunate who can only follow, whatever the reason might be. Blind party loyalties are also a sad infection on the body politic that must be cured for us to progress as we can.   It is also troublesome to me to see the President or any Politician  for that matter ( Mr. Reagan excluded ) give a speech and have the sycophants blindly cheering, regardless of the pitiful, unremarkable, and undereducated statements put forth.  We must demand a better political class.  I for one am sickened by the current status and prefer we turn away from Washington and get to the business of this still great nation.


Greetings and Blessings on Easter day

My fondest wishes for all this weekend and forever is for a vast blessing and awakening which offers us each a dose of enlightenment.   My wish for all is to remember the important things in life and to learn to laugh at the, please  excuse the expression, ” sheer idiocy ”  that occurs across all realms of the World society and cultures and we tend to witness first hand in many cases.  In simple terms to be young again as it were, to feel a little freer,  if only in your mind.  Please have a special weekend one and all.

Hello world! King Leonidas reporting to you on the Budget

I must say my friends, I have never witnessed such banal inanities as the past few weeks from our ” leaders ” in D.C..  And of course the worst part from my perspective is it came from the likes of people whom I would not allow to polish my shoes, let alone manage a federal Budget.  Have we all gone insane in the USA to allow this deceit/fraud to perpetuate in perpetuity? Evidently we have.  I for one believe in democracy and liberty as my/our forefather’s dating back to ancient Sparta envisioned for us all.  What a glorious world it could have been and can be again.   It is inherent in every human being to be free.  Regardless of who issues your paycheck, please remember this if not for yourselves, then for your progeny.  More soon.
