Pride seems to be a euphemism for power.
One negative covering for another negative.
World economic forum identifies government and commerce as two forces to which civil society is to be added. Factions to detract from the reality that is democracy. Any faction is better thab admitting that the people govern.
Why is a portion, a segment better (more desirable) than the whole? Because the potential for domination is greater.
Dominion is the holy grail, sought after by all the incompetent souls.
Competent people have no use for power. Only the impotent crave potency. What is the alternative to potency and impotence? Creation. Those who create have no need to conquer.
Why is the state of Georgia letting an Anschutz corporation, headquartered in arid Colorado, litter our Atlantic shore with granite rubble and disrupt the surf with yet another rock pile, aka groin? Is it because anyone willing to waste money in Georgia is welcome? Are we that hard up?
Need to do one today because, after all, they have scheduled a presentation to the County Commission for tomorrow.
On pages 5 and 6 of the report, the authors make some 22 recommendations that need to be followed if the Glynn County Police Department is to “evolve” into a 21st Century organization.
Perhaps it began with Ronald Reagan, but for the last three decades the Republican base has indulged either the politics of personal destruction or personal adulation. If it began with the teflon President, it has now culminated, one hopes, with the Orange Marvel.
The triumph of irresponsibility. Making monetary profit the measure of success, has made it possible for people to shed responsibility for their actions almost unnoticed. We see destruction and negative conditions, but we do not know how they came about.
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. They don’t give up and they keep getting worse.
Is their latest missive worth dissecting? I don’t know, but in good conscience I cannot let it stand.
From the Brunswick News:
Letters to the editor are opinions that sometimes cross over the line in reason and judgment. This includes mine as well. One such letter recently submitted by Monica Smith of St. Simons Island — who must be a U.S. constitutional authority with her certainty of its interpretation — reaches a new plateau of loony. She as well as many of our black-robed politicians have amended, twisted and distorted our constitution to meet their own agenda of how the world, should be.
The original Constitution had only 4,543 words, counting the signatures. Since the states signing on to be part of the United States, our document has been amended 27 times and now has 7,541 words, making it still the smallest constitution in the world for larger countries. Perhaps many of The News’ readers connect the same dots I do in that many so called constitutional decisions are reached which have no correlation whatsoever to do with our founding document.
Mrs. Smith’s polluted thinking aside, she is more than likely correct that someone will challenge that legal and illegal immigrants — in fact the rest of the world — are protected by the constitution. It matters little to those who think like Mrs. Smith that the results are bankruptcy, loss of sovereignty, etc. It is thoughts such as those expressed by Mrs. Smith that are destroying our country — once the greatest man has ever known. Too bad.
Sidney Lanier says:
Sidney Lanier SNAP is a subsidy program for food producers and distributors. A regular subsidy to individual households, as Switzerland is proposing and as both Nixon and McGovern supported in the ’72 election, would be more equitable and efficient. But, that would violare the fundamental prejudice that people have no money because they do not know how to manage it. Which of course is contrary to the reality that all dollars come out of the U.S. Treasury and, if people have none, it is because they were given none from the public purse and have not been clever enough to steal some. See, the problem with paper and electronic dollars is that they are inedible, undrinkable, unwearable and non-protective. Indeed, unlike the gold and silver, of which they used to be made, they cannot even be turned into artifacts or baubles which someone might value more. A cross of gold would be more useful than a pallet of Benjamins. Personally, I think anyone with an eleemosynary impulse should start carrying some Benjamins and hand them out more or less at random to people who will spend them and prime the economic pump. The dollar’s current has been slowing since about 1991. See that graph?
