Sex, Drugs, and Rock Roll

What happened to the time when politicians and the leaders of our great country had law degrees. These days we wonder if America is seeing it's last glimpse of the sunlight as the world leader. The wisdom that comes from education, experience and common sense starting with the founding fathers of this great nation. Today, we do not have deep thinkers, people who sit, contemplate and act on those great thought popular or no. As Gen. George Washington sat on the shores of the Potomac River facing a lack of funding from congress for the revolutionary war his been without shoes or food becoming meager and popular thought saying surrender all in the Snow of the northern states of winter. But Gen Washington having thou hgt it through and knew the outcome would be victorious. Thus creating a new country of freedom of its people from Britain, sailed across the Potomac River with his men with courage and commitment.

Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln, are learned men of deep contemplative thoughts of the future of these United States and it's constituents. The framework of the United States seems to be something that as time goes by needs someone (out politicians to pay attention to) is not a living document, it is static, it is not dynamic. hard choices hae to be made, truth has to be victorious, and courage has to be possessed by the leaders of this great country. Over the past one hundred years there has been only several courageous leaders who stood with conviction of their thoughts of staying on the side of righteousness, thoughtfulness, love, morality, and integrity. John F. Kennedy, Martin L. King, Lyndon B. Johnson, Malcom Shabazz, Jimmy Carter, and Barack Obama are examples of great leaders and thinkers.

The Tea Party has good intentions, but it seems there is not a a well read person or anyone of great thinking abilities among the top brass which does not lend to good leadership.

In 1974 there was a oil shortage in the United States. Gas was not available in the needed quantities or so we were told. The prices escalated. To have order legislation was [passed in California, the number "3" state in public education and a booming economy, mad provision for cars with the licence number ending in an even number to purchase gas only on even days Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. And cars with licences ending in odd numbers purchasing gas on odd days Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. However, because of the nature of America we did not seek to pursue aggressively an alternative fuel or means of transportation that was not make us a slave to another country. A group of Arab OPEC countries which now provides terrorist with the religious and financial backing to attack America and the world to like communism make the whole world Islamic. Hopefully like Communism it will not succeed in doing. But what is America's nature? Is our culture the same as out nature?

After long conversations with some people, I have come to the conclusion that America's nature is held in it's people. In out society we want more now. More materialistic things, the bigger the better, from houses to our fast food sandwiches. Which brings me to the second point we want it fast and easy. Everything microwavable. So it doesn't surprise the world that eh population in America is the most obese country in the world. In America we coined the phrase couch potato and the 12 ounce curl as an exercise. Lifting a beer to to your mouth is not an exercises. Americans are LAZY. Which leads me to the question "Are our freshman politicians stupid caused by their laziness a reflection of the country? A population that is told what to think by pundits. Are we so lazy that we won't think a thing through to completion. Or do we know how? Are there no more thinkers? Not to mention great thinkers. Let us return to reading, thinking and exercising your brain. Turn off ther idiot box. Here is a word for you today atrophy. "Without reading atrophy of the brain begins."
