“Nope, this just ain’t good!”  How many times in our lives have we had those or similar words bouncing around inside our skulls?  Yeah, I’ve lost count, too! 

 

There are usually only a few reasons these annoying words show up.  Occasionally, it’ll be when we just run smack-dab into an “Oh Sh–!” situation.  You know what I mean.  Accidents, diseases and a whole bunch of other stuff that seem to have popped up out of nowhere and suddenly we find ourselves up to our neck in swamp water with alligators nipping at our butts.

 

Now admittedly, some of these situations that seem to pop up out of nowhere are a normal result of the things we personally did or didn’t do.  We made our own bed and suddenly we’re forced to either lie in it or start ripping off the sheets.  Don’t ya just hate it when that happens?

 

Other times, an event occurs that honestly is completely beyond our control.  These are just unfortunately, part of life.  Natural disasters, impulsive or inconsiderate actions by other folks and many diseases fall into this category.  Once again, we’re put into a position where we’ll likely need to do something that we never would have wanted to do in the first place.  Dang the bad luck…

 

In both of these types of situations, we’re forced into a position of either having to “act” or suffer the undesirable consequences.  Most of us will then put our logic and maybe even our survival instincts to work to do those things we need to do to try to overcome our yucky situation.  More often than not, we’ll succeed.  Cool!

 

But what about those situations that quietly sneak up on us?  You know the ones I’m talking about.  It’s the job that started out to be pretty good and later on down the road has turned into drudgery and uncertainty.  The relationship that was once built on caring and compassion which has deteriorated into indifference or abuse.  The life path that was once paved and well maintained that has made a gradual transition into a muddy cow path.  Now what?

Suppose you were an idiot - and suppose you were a member of Congress….  but then I repeat myself.

I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.

Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner.
