Bargain Bin,

Ah yes.... We have all been there and no inspite of knowing with 100% confidence and faith that what we are saying is the right thing for the person concerned;still we let it pass...

Relationships with family are way above Politics and money issues.So best to keep our precious relationships above these issues.

Regards

Ashish.

I feel there is a time and a place for everything, and sadly people take these things far too personally sometimes. Better to not risk relationships with friends and close family, especially when they're not likely to change their point of view, than to attempt to reform them.

I understand and agree with what you are pinpointing here.

But do you realise one critical fact?

As the really smart and intelligent part of the population withdraws complelely from the Political Discourse(which is exactly what is happening here).the worst elements rise up to the top to take total control over the political discourse.

Only way to check this ?Speak up when you feel something is going wrong within the  political system  in America.

I know there is a strong possibilty that you may be heckled by some of your closest friends/family over this ;but you have to stand up and be counted.

Now is the time.

Regards

Ashish.

Briliant Piece Marvin!!!

Marvin,

Really awesome piece.It actually had me thinking and laughing at the same time!!!

These were beyond a doubt the best parts of the piece,

"

There were the Reagan years. My family couldn't understand how my hero was going to balance the budget and increase arms spending at the same time, as he promised in his 1980 campaign.

That was easy, I explained about the trillions later added to the deficit. Have two sets of books


"

It had me thinking about all these clowns who inhabit DC and the kind of mess they have repeatedly wracked on America for so long.

Where have all the Good Ol' Checks and Balances which used to make America so great have gone???

Is it time to reboot American Democracy from the bottoms up?? Unlikely to happen without a change in the US Federal Reserve policies.

Regards

Ashish.

Bargain Bin,

That repugnant remark was a good one. I got a nice laugh out of it. But the two workd 'politics' and 'intelligence' don't go together. Have you ever heard the saying, the dumber you are, the quicker you move up in life. That reminds me of politics (you just need to know how to please people to do well, not necessarily do prodcutive things).
