Fortune Cookie Blog (nuclear “family”)


When two infantile, irrational, leaders throw tantrums, exchange
insults, their rationale for choosing bombast is always UNCLEAR.
Our deep concerns over resultant nuclear bomb blasts CERTAIN!








Fortune Cookie Blog (don’t get burned)


The fire breathing dragon doth exist; inhabits the incendiary overlord who re-
heats empty talking points via inflammatory oratory. Such fiery screeds doth
little more than burn up the clock. With far more burning issues on the back-
burner, neither he nor his subjects will be able to keep the home fires burning.







Fortune Cookie Blog (depth perception)


The precise duration of life’s journey is both variable and indeterminable.
It’d be wise to permit pragmatism to temper our illusions of immortality.
The miles ahead cannot exceed the miles behind, forever. Eventually,
that conventional, convex rearview mirror message, “objects are closer
than they appear” would better serve us etched into the windshield pane.






Preserve, Protect and Defend AND Comprehend


On Inauguration Day in America, the Electoral College “graduate” is required by law to take the following Oath of Office…

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

The law requires all new federal employees to swear / affirm to preserve, protect and defend, too.

But what does that Oath even mean when many of these peeps cannot even begin to fathom the intent / ideals of the Constitution’s authors… OR they mock them… OR flat out loathe them… OR, maybe, have never even bothered to read this literary work of art, at all?

Prior to anyone taking the Oath… HELL… prior to anyone even running for office or applying for a job at the federal level… they should be required to take and pass a test to prove they’ve read the Constitution and comprehend its deeper meaning.

Prior to becoming U.S. citizens, immigrants must take and pass a civics test. I’d not be going out on a limb to say they know far more about America than many peeps born in America do.
