the loser’s tool

Socrates:

Is there any politician in recent US history that has been a bigger liar, or has used slander more than the man currently in the office of President? I think not.

It doesn’t take a philosopher to realize the danger of allowing such a person as the #BLOTUS to hold the reins of power. The leader of the free world needs to be a person of the highest moral character and a person of unquestionable integrity. Neither of these characteristics describe the #BLOTUS.

My hope is that his continuously plummeting  approval ratings are a indication that more and more of my fellow citizens are coming to understand just how unfit this man is to have the highest office in the land. He should not be allowed to continue flaunting his dictatorial disdain for our opinions nor our laws.

The #BLOTUS is not only the Biggest Liar in the US. He’s the biggest loser. And that’s why slander is his favorite tool.

facing our fear

 

Surrender Your Fears

The biggest limitation we have is our own fears. One of my own biggest fears has always been the fear of failure.

Whatever our fears, they hold us back from achieving all that we could if we push through them. We need the courage to attempt greater and more significant challenges. We just need the courage to begin.

In the end, I would much rather fail and look foolish attempting the impossible than always wondering what would have happened if I had tried. As I have often said, any action on behalf of those in need makes a huge difference.

Facing our fear, naming it, and recognizing how it limits what we can achieve is the first step to achieving so much more.  And for me, that makes me want to attempt even greater things, especially on behalf of the poor and the hungry.

 

will we ever learn?

The grades are in, and we have received a nice fat F. And F means we have failed to learn that our kids are valuable and their education is of paramount importance.

Will we ever learn? When will we begin to put a higher priority on education than we do on profit?
