Inspirational Quote
 
     "You folks are all wonderful.   I'm wonderful.   Life is wonderful . . . everything is wonderful." - GRSJR
Multi-Tasker

     A local variety show which follows the noon news is losing it . . . I believe.   They have one guy who is an expert in multiple topics.  
     Originally, he was a certified public accountant and he gave viewers tax advice;
    
     "Thanks Jim."
    
     Then  he was a travel expert who'd traveled widely.  He gave travel advice;  Including how to pack your luggage;

     "Thank you Jim, great advice.  Jim Sweeney, folks."

     Now today the station announced;

     "Tommorrow's guests will include sous chef and gourmand, Jim Sweeney." 

     It's always the same guy;  Always the same Jim Sweeney.  I don't understand it.  It's weird.

Tired of the Claptrap

     There are 3 branches of power to the U. S. government; Executive, Judicial, and Congressional.  Now, each branch has some power which the others don't have.  For example, the judiciary administers laws regardless of Executive or Congressional support.  This is a power of the Judiciary.  Congress enacts - or doesn't enact - laws; The President - Executive branch - has a veto power and can veto laws which Congress is trying to enact.  Congress can - with a 2/3rds quorum - override the veto.  If any branch acts with power, the other branches can manifest powers  they've been given to deny, change, or not accept any nascent act.  These powers are  contentious.  CONTENTIOUS, argumentative, disputatious!  These powers are not suffered.     
     For a branch of power to suffer the power of another branch is malfeasance.  The  abnegating of authorized power is a venal corruption.
     When President Obama says,
“I’ve got a pen, and … I’ve got a phone,”1  he is representing that he is taking the powers of the Presidency and using them.  It is a responsibility.  It is not malfeasance.
      I'm tired of hearing the claptrap which is, 'Pres. Obama is acting unconstitutionally', yet none are impeaching him.  I'm tired of hearing the poppycock which is 'He's breaking the law not making it', yet none are arresting him.  I'm tired of hearing the foolery which is 'He's being neither consesual nor according' as if simpatico of the branches of government - executive, judicial, and congressional which might be labeled in all obstinateness 'JUEXCON' - were a solution rather than a problem.

Last of the Navajo Code Talkers

     "Mr. Nez grew up at a time when speaking his native Navajo was prohibited and punished, yet it did not stop him from holding on to his culture and keeping his language alive," . . . "While we are saddened by the loss of Chester Nez, we are inspired by his service to our nation and the efforts of all Navajo Code Talkers who played a critical role in World War II.  We thank them for their service."

Thanks and my deepest respect to the Navajo Code Talkers.




Miscellany

    If I've ruined your breakfast cereal by the metaphorical use of 'spoiled milk', I guess I should apologize.  I'm certainly glad I didn't write about 'swimming in spoiled milk'.  I'd hate to think  that I was the cause of someone attempting to swim in their breakfast cereal.

     Here's a surefire way to irritate someone.  On any holiday, when asking, 'Got any plans for the holiday?' pronounce holiday as 'hole-a-day'.

     Here's something that's difficult for me, whatever the reasons, to understand.  This country basically trespasses all over Native American soil, shoots when a group of states decides to secede, and yet none of this has any relevance to the foundation of America's
'greatness'.

     Contentment is like a lesser of 2 evils.  Ambition - whether realized or simply attempted - is to use one's agency to climb a pedestal.  That is an effort quite necessary to a secular worldview in which there is no one at the top or, alternatively, anyone can, potentially, occupy the top.  However, secularism is a choice, not a mandate;  Thus ambition too is a choice, not a mandate.  To me, ambitiousness and striving seem quite vain.
