Isn Quite The Way You Thought?

http://www.whitehouse.gov/infographics/extending-middle-class-tax-cuts

It's good to keep your mind "open" - sometimes, you might decide to "change", if you find out something "isn't quite the way you thought it was"!

Sikhism?

http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/asia_pacific/some-answers-about-the-history-of-the-sikh-religion-in-india/2012/08/06/9790aee2-dfe7-11e1-8d48-2b1243f34c85_story.gmail

Yes, I am JUST starting MY "learning" about "THIS" - and it's VERY interesting to ME!

"...Sikhism: What do you know about it?: First off, Sikhs are not Muslims. This monotheistic religion, founded in 15th-centory Punjab (now North India and Pakistan), preaches equality of all mankind and peace. The faith, the world's fifth-largest organized religion, does not have clergy. Spiritual guides are known as gurus. There are more than 25 million Sikhs worldwide, including roughly 700,000 in the United States, according to the Sikh American Legal Defense and Education Fund..."

Many Others Do Not Cheat!

http://www.usatoday.com/sports/olympics/london/story/2012-08-07/Gold-medal-swimmer-admits-to-cheating-at-Games/56854568/1?csp=sports

Yes, "cheaters" have always tried, and often "win", but many "others" do not cheat, and often "win" too - "we" just need to "Try Again" until "we" get it "RIGHT!

UNTIL WE GET IT RIGHT!

http://globalpublicsquare.blogs.cnn.com/2012/08/08/know-your-gun-rights-history/#comment-275687

CNN's Fareed Zakaria has it about right, so far - NOW, "WE" need to SHOUT and send out LOTS of MESSAGES that will "KILL THE BAD ONES, FOR EVER"!

JUST TRY AGAIN, and AGAIN, and AGAIN - UNTIL "WE" GET IT "RIGHT"!

"Everyday", the "Events" of "Yesterday", must be "Considered", in order to keep things as "Balanced" - as we can for our Earth Planet, and everyone living in it!

Too Un-Balanced!

Yes, I have been thinking "this way" for sometime - it's just NOT balanced enough for the "Middle" - and the "Conservative" thinking is really, really, really far out NOW!

This is "just" one of "many" examples that encounter our daily living all around the world!

Our "technology" has gone too far ahead of our "skills"!

It's a BIG problem, that NEEDS attention, but usually DOES NOT - The Old Goat!

History of Humanity - Climbing!

http://globalpublicsquare.blogs.cnn.com/2012/08/01/beijings-growing-credibility-gap/#comment-272565

We are climbing through the "History" of "Humanity", and "we" are just turning the latest curve on the "path" towards the future, where more, and more of the "shutters" will be taken down - it takes centuries, but "we" just need to continue on with the "Trying"!

Try Again!

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dan-froomkin/reporters-know-what-the-v_b_1719778.html?igoogle=1

To The Reader,

From our first times when our "US Constitution" had "big arguments" with our "Forefathers", to those that "we" have today - including, "as written" in this article, about "voting"!

"Conservatives" insist that "only" certain "members" of our United States of America should be "IN", with the rest shut "OUT"!

"Progressives" insist that it's better for everyone to try to be new "members" of our United States of America so "we" can try to make things better for "everyone"!

The "Future" becomes the "Present", as each day requires new thoughtful thinking to "TRY AGAIN" - You Can't Go Back, You Can Only Go Forward! "Humanity", and it's "members" are all "IN" - regardless of "some members" that wont to try to "close out others"!

Over our history, there have been many good "thinkers", there are many today, in our Earth Planet, and there will be many more in the future - to "Try Again" with "this" basic "problem" that, so far, has escaped us!

Progressive vs. Conservative Thinking!

July 30, 2012 (8:02PM)

PROGRESSIVE vs. CONSERVATIVE THINKING


This "question" has been thought about, written about, and talked about since I was a little boy, growing up in the 1930's and 1940's when FDR was our President - and folks were either loving or hating him! Now, we have President Obama looking for his second term - and folks either loving or hating him!

The "question" has still not been answered for me, and now I am 81 years and still waiting?

I, would think that most of the folks at the low level, that have really difficult problems with food, medical, housing, education and low end earnings would go with leaders like FDR and Obama when going to "vote progressive" - but it seems that its more likely, about 50/50, with a few folks swaying back and forth every 4 years, still not really being able to see where the "butter" should be "spread"!

I, would think that most of the folks from the "middle" would also side with the "progressive" thinking, like FDR and Obama when going to "vote" - but the seems more likely that it will be about the same, as the preceding paragraph!

It seems that there probably must be some really "murky" thoughts "slinking" through many folks's minds that are led by really "Bad" leaders - perhaps "mind washing" might be a good "thought" to help answer my own "question"!

CUT OFF at THE PASS!

"CUT OFF at THE PASS"!

Dear Reader, Wherever You Are,

Many folks, passing slowly forward / backward (?), on the path that tries to get towards the future, sometimes stops, or even crashes on the "way"!

Both my own father, and me, are "examples" of having gone through it, my son is still having to "try"!

There are a few "good ones" that help you on your way - there are a few "bad ones" that sometimes try to stop you!

The "rest", are just passing thru, like they should, trying to get better for several reasons, that only "they" can understand!

So, if you find yourself "CUT OFF at THE PASS" - just TRY AGAIN, perhaps you will get past it next time!

Really, there are only two choices for you to take - you can TRY or FAIL!

Only YOU can choose!

The Old Goat

    PAPAFOOTE's Interests:

    About Me: "The Old Goat" Since my Joanna has let go of her life, Charlie (my little companion dog) and I (Papa Foote, "The Traveling Man") were still walking down the "road of live" - smelling the thoughts of the world. But now, since my stroke has started to creep into my old body, my mind is still with the "Eagles Flying Higher" but mostly, I just want to try to squeeze my thinking and writing into just a few words that count towards a better world - like no more anger and selfish thinking that comes from warring between human clans instead of helping each other in our World! My choices are my own - from my inner-self! "Thoughts" Plant Kiindness and Harvest Love Beware of Charlatans* *False expert: Somebody who falsely claims a special skill or expertise - Early 17th century: "to babble, patter," an imitation of the sound of empty talk! Keep Your Mind Open and Balanced Try To Be True To Your Inner-Self "Facts" Some "Facts" are actually truths that we are able to uncover and understand! Some "Facts" are only truths until something changes as we become able to understand more! Some "Facts" will never become truths because we will never be able to understand! "So" That is why the human mind has trouble with "factual conclusions"!
