Mythology!

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/17/john-sununu-obama_n_1679803.html?igoogle=1

There is a name called:

"Myth" - noun:

1. a traditional or legendary story, usually concerning some being or hero or event, with or without a determinable basis of fact or a natural explanation, especially one that is concerned with deities or demigods and explains some practice, rite, or phenomenon of nature.

2. stories or matter of this kind: realm of myth.

3. any invented story, idea, or concept: His account of the event is pure myth.

4. an imaginary or fictitious thing or person.

5. an unproved or false collective belief that is used to justify a social institution.

Just another thought from The Old Goat!

Outlaw!

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/17/disclose-act-senate-gop_n_1680635.gmail

"FILIBUSTERER" I wonder when/how our Senate will "outlaw" such bad "thinking" in U.S. Politics:

1..."the use of irregular or obstructive tactics by a member of a legislative assembly to prevent the adoption of a measure generally favored or to force a decision against the will of the majority."
2..."an exceptionally long speech, as one lasting for a day or days, or a series of such speeches to accomplish this purpose." 3..."a member of a legislature who makes such a speech."

Thank you, Thomas B. Edsall, for a thoughtful "writing" - I think more folks, are getting clearer thinking, that's GOOD!

Needs Changing!

Dear Reader,

I woke from my "sleep", in the early morning, because I had to write, and send out, this from The Old Goat!

It is not the bad actual "conclusions", or "concepts" - that need fixing, it is the bad "side" of those thoughts and thinking that need changing!

As a "BIG" example: take "RELIGION" vs. "RELIGIOUS" thinking - the "first" gets lots of wars and really bad cruelty vs. the "second" that can get lots of good conclusions or concepts that "EVERYONE" can "share" so "we" can step upward, towards a higher level of socialization in our civilized Earth Planet!

Travelers!

I'm getting tired with these "travelers" who don't know what they are doing - in bad places, just getting in trouble, where they should not - and getting lots of "money" and "time" from the "press" and "governments" and "us", instead of taking care of "their" own lives! -The Old Goat-

The Tide Has Changed!

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/14/mitt-romney-battle-heart-_n_1672296.html?igoogle=1

My "view" - it seems that "political" stuff has always been around, regardless of "progressive" or "conservative" thinking, but this time, the weight of voters in November will go to Obama and the "progressives"! The "tide" has changed - for the betterment of Earth Planet!

Blind Trusts!

"Blind Trust", just another "gimmick", for the "powerful" and/ "wealthy", to "dodge" what "everyone" should have - FAIR, STRAIGHTFORWARD, BALANCED THINKING! -The Old Goat

Draft Everyone!

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/10/opinion/lets-draft-our-kids.html?_r=1&nl=opinion&emc=edit_ty_20120710

Yes, I went into the Air Force during the former "draft", and it was much better, for especially the young, just out of high school! Many of the "thoughts" from this Thomas Ricks contributor are some of the "thinking" - The Old Goat!

I Love The Internet - For Communicating!

http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2012/07/08/is-the-internet-making-us-crazy-what-the-new-research-says.html?utm_medium=email&utm_source=newsletter&utm_campaign=cheatsheet_morning&cid=newsletter%3Bemail%3Bcheatsheet_morning&utm_term=Cheat+Sheet

NOPE! I love being able to communicate through the Internet - especially at my "Old Goat" aging, after a stroke about 5 years back, that made "verbally" difficult, but, "writing" through my Google "Gmail" a snap - for me!

"My" communicating through the Internet, now allows me to reach my "thinking" - and communicate to anyone that wants to have a look at what I have said! You can never be alone - as long as you have the Internet available!

Hypocrisy!

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/03/gop-obamacare-young-adult-insurance_n_1643517.html?igoogle=1

"Hypocrisy", no, just balanced, thoughtful thinking, of those folks in the "middle", where they just try to be as "fair" as they can - instead of those folks, that always seem to have quick "answers" from the "right" and/or "left", that never seem to be able to settle anything, so we can get a little bit further towards a better life for everyone!

    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"! "I'm Slowing Down - But Still Thinking" An Old Goat - Still Trying - As The World Cycles Forward (Never Back) - Leaning Forward Progressively - But Still In The Balance - Looking For The Better Path to The Future!
