Inherently, each one of us has the substance within to achieve whatever our goals and dreams define.  What is missing from each of us is the training, education, knowledge and insight to utilize what we already have.

Government can be preserved only by statesmen with knowledge in proportion to their task.
    —   Plato
[A “loyal” opposition / minority party, should be working to guide government to better policies through compromise, not fighting to stop EVERYTHING dead in the water.  The same is true when you have a unified government in control of both the White House and Congress.  A “loyal” majority party should not have to force anything through with no concessions to the minority.  The majority party needs to be particularly careful when the dis-loyal minority attempts to force you into these actions.  Their purpose is to create a “moral equivalency” to justify their past actions and further / future undemocratic actions when / if the dis-loyal minority ever manages to regain control of the government.    —    KMAB]

The person who says he knows what he thinks but cannot express it usually does not know what he thinks.
   —    Mortimer Adler
I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I’m not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
   —    Alan Greenspan
[I have frequently heard people asking why President Trump can’t form words into intelligible sentences and (loosely defined) sentences into a coherent paragraph.
My (opinion) response is:  I + I + I + U = BS.
Start with Ignorance (doesn’t know what he needs to know), add Indifference (doesn’t care about what he needs to know), low Intelligence and an Unwillingness to read / listen / learn == spew a typical #DonTheCon string of words (non-sense / garbage) aka:  Bull Sh*t and lies.
And that’s why I’m looking forward to 20 January 2021.   —    KMAB]

Rage is a dangerous emotion, not simply because it can be destructive but because it can be so easily satisfied with cheap targets.  Like my friend who picks fights online, I’m a veteran.  I know people who have been injured or killed overseas.  I’ve seen the damage bombs wreak on the bodies of innocent civilians.  And, yes, it fills me with rage.  But if that rage is to mean anything, it means I cannot distract myself with the illusion of adjudicating past wrongs with artfully phrased put-downs.  In a world where we are still at war, the most important question is, What do we do now?  There the moral certainty of my rage must be met with humility about the limits of my knowledge.
