The Cost of Corruption in 60 Seconds

The only the only problem with money in politics is that it leaves most of us out. And it creates a poverty of spirit… in the whole nation. And unfortunately, it takes a long time for that to be recognized. What buying elections really costs us. It costs us our spirit, our soul and damages our culture. I want an America where everyone has an equal voice not just the money interests. It’s not about right and left. It’s about right and wrong and it is not ever going to change until we are resigned and committed to saying enough… no more corruption in politics! Are you awake... read more

The Bird Feeder Paradigm

I bought a bird feeder. I hung it on my back porch and filled it with seed. What a beauty of a bird feeder it was, as I filled it lovingly with seed. Within a week we had hundreds of birds taking advantage of the continuous flow of free and easily accessible food. But then the birds started building nests in the boards of the patio, above the table, and next to the barbecue. Then came the crap. It was everywhere: on the patio tile, the chairs, the table … everywhere! Then some of the birds turned mean. They would dive bomb me and try to peck me even though I had fed them out of my own pocket. And others birds were boisterous and loud. They sat on the feeder and squawked and screamed at all hours of the day and night and demanded that I fill it when it got low on food. After a while, I couldn’t even sit on my own back porch anymore. So I took down the bird feeder and in three days the birds were gone. I cleaned up their mess and took down the many nests they had built all over the patio. Soon, the back yard was like it used to be ….. quiet, serene…. and no one demanding their rights to a free meal. Now let’s see…… Our government gives out free food, subsidized housing, free medical care and free education, and allows anyone born here to be an automatic citizen. Then the illegals came by the tens of thousands. Suddenly our taxes went up to pay for free services; small apartments are housing 5 families; you have to wait 6 hours to be seen by an emergency room doctor; Your child’s second-grade class is behind other schools because over half the class doesn’t speak English. Corn Flakes now come in a bilingual box; I have to ‘press one ‘ to hear my bank talk to me in English, and people waving flags other than ”ours” are squawking and screaming in the streets, demanding more rights and free liberties. Just my opinion, but maybe it’s time for the government to take down the bird feeder. If you agree, pass it on; if not, just continue cleaning up the crap!! We don’t need a wall. We need to stop drawing lines in the sand and claiming no one can cross them. If we all are born free then should we not be able to go anywhere we want without asking for permission? When we are at our best, our country is an open-minded and big-hearted country, a compassionate nation. At our best, we have a strong sense of national purpose and an indomitable spirit. At our best, ours is a country of builders, doers, go-getters, dreamers. Today, as we wall... read more
