Just Let Me -- G -- Indoctrinate You!

Dear America,

all I wanted to do was watch silly TV last night -- my girl was at a sleep over, my BooBoo was ignoring me and curled up into a ball on his favorite pillow --  the house was quiet (almost too quiet, if you know what I mean). And what did I do?  I filled the silence with canned laughter and one liners.

And now, looking back, I think it was all for one snippet of wisdom:

"you wanna make God laugh, tell him your plans"

...said the womanizer turned instant prophet on "How I Met Your Mother."

Are you talkin' to me?

In the last several weeks I have personally taken every plan, future picture, list of top ten goals and aspirations, blueprint for a year from now, five years from now, the last ten, off the table. In keeping with the spirit of yesterday's theme, my latest thing is having no thing in mind, and simply allow myself to be open to the Intelligence much grander, far smarter, more realistic than mine.

All I want to do is move in the direction that "adds to the bounty" responsibly, intelligently, and creatively.  And with that in mind and continuing yesterday's drum beat, I do believe, if our children are given curriculum, starting in grade school, introducing the depths of philosophy, morality, creation, government, religion and science -- more importantly, how they are all interwoven and connected -- the potentialities of building an enlightened, intelligent, responsible future America would grow exponentially.

just as a simple discussion on "Essential Capitalism" becomes a captivating exchange of ideas, experiences and attitudes.  Read More Here...Dr. Tibor Machan of The Daily Bell, does it again.  Just when we thought we all understood the same definition of capitalism...we are reminded that a duck is a duck is sometimes not the same duck    But similar to the video that went viral months ago, discrediting all that capitalism is and isn't, running amuck within our school systems far and wide -- ridiculing the ridicule seems to go on deaf ears.  Our kids don't understand, nor do they care, of what real capitalism (akin to the free market/free enterprise and paramount to how America was made) is or isn't.

According to my pea size view, one little book carries the magnitude to correct all woes separating the ignorant from intelligentsia:  The 5000 Year Leap.  If each year, starting early and often, began a quick review of "The Leap" -- real capitalism, combined with moral responsibility, aligned with honor and integrity, added to simply doing the right thing, respective of the Rule of Law and America's finer principles, has a real chance of saving us.

I mean, capitalism has made people like a George Soros and a Bill Gates.  Capitalism has created GE and GM, and every job and opportunity that falls under CEO/boss/owner/investor/risk taker.  Capitalism has linked cities and continents, and has made the world a global marketplace. Capitalism preserves creating a competitive edge building better goods and services, like between Coke and Pepsi, and the like.  Capitalism fully supports the American Red Cross and every other charity and worthy cause known to man. Capitalism, when used correctly and responsibly, is the one thing and the only thing to account for the accumulation and the expansion of pure wealth and benefits that exceeds all other avenues, trickling down to the finest detail and the last person on the totem pole.  Everyone counts.  Everything matters.  And when we cease recognizing either one, we have issues.

But besides wishing and praying "The Leap" could be dropped down into the hands of every citizen this very moment and wishing responsible true capitalism could catch a break -- and being that it is spring break and my girl is home and we want to go out to play -- today, I want to keep things short and leave a little Emerson on the table to ponder (and yet, is it Emerson? some question it...no matter, it is still good).

What is Success?

To laugh often and much; 

To win the respect of intelligent people
and the affection of children;

To earn the appreciation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends;

To appreciate beauty;
To find the best in others;

To leave the world a bit better, 
whether by a healthy child, a garden patch
or a redeemed social condition;

To know even one life has breathed
easier because you have lived;

This is to have succeeded.

pulleeze, plans...what plans?  I got no more stinkin' plans; take me, I'm yours.

Make it a Good Day, G

and then there is this...remember the old A-Team sitcom?  what was their favorite line: 

"don't you just love it when a plan comes together..."

And can't wait to hear Obama's plan (not to be confused with his other plan) that is expected to come out tomorrow.
