You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.
Marcus Aurelius

So some folks got what they wanted last night and some folks didn’t. Such is the way of the world and the nature of the beast.

I won’t sit here and try to ploy niceties and say I think under this leadership we are heading in anything even vaguely considerable to the right direction.

But nor will I quibble over it.

What I am concerned about is a much more conscionable change in our culture as a whole.

Any one of these alone, ten years ago, would have shown a government official the door. But in this day and age not a single thing has been done on any of them.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not happy with the outcome, but I am more concerned over our populaces willingness to forgo these slights against itself.

Rather we have created entire generations whom are dependent upon the government.  I’ll be exploring this more in coming days but historically speaking it’s a scary trend for our nation.

Neutral site? Dennis you obviously haven’t been surfing the web long or you’d see I’m about as neutral as it gets around here.

I’m not sure what points your trying to raise with your links there either.

Your first link on Elizabeth Warren links back to the Boston Globe whose very headline says

“Warren’s extended family split about heritage
Some recall, others deny any links to Native Americans”

Your second link regarding marijuana says (again quoting) “studies have shown a link between prolonged marijuana use and cognitive or neural impairment”

And just yesterday the former Head of the CIA said that the Administration white washed his memo.

So am I really a kneejerk reactionary, or someone who is actually literate and can read whats placed in front of them?
