I guess there always will exist a “why” and “wherefore” for all of us to ponder from time to time. I readily admit to being a ponderer. The piece you just read was written by me twenty years ago in August of 2002, on a Monday. And if you’re interested, it was a pondering day for me. Please take note, the word “ponder” should not be confused with the word “pander”, even though men and even some ladies might be involved with either.
When pandering is in the hands of so-called “leaders” —and it’s less than artful gestures have been directed towards our friends, trusted allies, and most importantly their constituents the very people who have voted them into command— chaos always represents the precursor for defeat. And yet, with all the proven crap we are systematically fed by those at the top since the beginnings, we American people have managed to grow and prosper. We all must take a breath, make that a deep inhaling of only what we all know to be the truth; “We shall overcome!”
Longevity and ledges are the world’s salvation. Some ledges stand for eternities while others crumble —hopefully into beautiful white sandy beaches for humanity to enjoy for centuries to come.
And one more thing… Notes (with a smile):
Qualifications to be a United States Representative
To be elected, a representative must be at least 25 years old, a United States citizen for at least seven years and an inhabitant of the state he or she represents.
In order to serve in any branch of our United States military, a gal or guy must have a complete physical exam performed by the branch of the service he or she plans on serving in. The exam is thorough to say the least, usually taking a full day or more, depending on the chosen branch of service. Additionally, in most cases the first week of service is dedicated to a complete battery of mental exams as well. Mental and physical results will determine whether or not you’re qualified to serve. After all, a person who may have a mental condition should not be allowed to deal with any form of weapon (you would think). After all, many lives are at stake.
