Try Again!

Wilder Foote (PapaFoote) wrote: The Old Goat has been thinking about "Ethical" stuff since I was able to start "Thinking" as a young boy! Actually, humans started to try to figure stuff out, way back in the "cave-man" days - and although "we" have been able to start "climbing the ladder" Scientifically, we don't seem to be able to start "climbing the ladder" Sociologically! Perhaps, the "kernel" has not been found yet - Civilization seems to be still "torn apart" instead "welded together"! I GUESS WE JUST NEED TO TRY AGAIN!

Tonight, you might want to come back to another mystery - from The Old Goat, who knows!

Labor Days!

History, gives us a better chance to understand what labor is - between May and September days for our Earth Planet!

The Presidents Club

http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/what-washington-really-does/2012/04/29/gIQAiplSqT_story.html?wpisrc=nl_opinions

I am just starting "The Presidents Club", and thinking about Hoover and Truman, and how Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy are weaving into some more history - so "we" can understand better, about our Earth Planet, and the leaders that "can" do better, when they want to!

Miscarriage of Justice

http://www.npr.org/2012/04/28/150996459/free-after-25-years-a-tale-of-murder-and-injustice?ft=3#commentBlock

The history from ancient times through our times have shown that some folks don't care about miscarriage of justice - they only need to have an example of what they "think" they need, so they can be stroked through the problem of the day! This is an example of how civilization has really not started yet - in our Planet Earth!

Freer!

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-57423390/new-code-of-conduct-issued-for-secret-service-agents/

For several decades "many" have tried to let "others" be "freer"! Now, it is time to understand that "free" comes "after" understanding - meaning that "you" can only be freer, if you agree to obey the "rules"!

Just Wait for November!

http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/what-obamas-second-term-would-look-like/2012/04/26/gIQAe87djT_story.html?wpisrc=nl_opinions

Again, I do not see what the "voters" are going to do - get back into the "real time" where balance can be thoughtfully weighed between conservative vs. progressive thinking - or NOT! Most of the "yapping" is just more "yapping" - just wait until the polls close in November - then we can see if things can be better, or NOT! -The Old Goat-

What am I afraid of and why?

What am I afraid of and why?

Because, after living many experiences, and with my mind still balanced with my thoughts and thinking, what is there to be afraid of, as I slowly get to the time of letting go from life!

One World

http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/shaky-economic-prospects-threaten-both-parties/2012/04/24/gIQAFOQTfT_story.html?wpisrc=nl_opinions#weighIn

Good Morning,

My own thinking usually scans out to the horizon, trying to glimpse the future, that is just beyond it! Right now the tumult,� which has been around our Earth Planet for centuries, is still looking for "short answers" - instead of realizing that our Earth Planet needs to "link" together, instead of trying to go to their own solutions! Their have been folks that have thought about "One World", instead of their own territories before, and I think that more folks are now thinking about it again! Perhaps, it is the "time" to try?

I was thinking again!
The "less" we use for Hate and War - the "more" we can use for the betterment of our Planet Earth!

Is Just As Bad!

http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2012/apr/23/tavis-smiley/tavis-smiley-says-one-out-two-americans-are-living/

The "conclusion" is just as bad - REGARDLESS of the "answer"

A Little More Understanding!

Yes, I have just started "The Presidents Club", which everyone needs to read, because "we" can get a small "bit" more understanding about "our" Earth Planet and our USA!

Before It Is Too Late!

http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/republican-rhetoric-that-damages-the-nation/2012/04/19/gIQAlPH8TT_story.html?wpisrc=nl_opinions

For Everyone,

YES, it is time for action, NOT silence - to squash the rotten "thinking" from our USA (and other places in our Earth Planet) before it is too late!

History - Has It Been Accelerating?

http://life.time.com/history/hitler-at-50-rare-color-photos-of-a-despots-birthday/#1

Dear Family and Friends,

I have many thoughts about this history that I have lived through - perhaps, you have some of your own to think about! For me, it seems that "history" has been accelerating - what do you think?

Focus, People, on Romney vs. Obama - NYTimes.com

http://campaignstops.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/04/19/focus-people/?nl=opinion&emc=edit_ty_20120419

Just another time in our history - we can decide thoughtfully or NOT! Most of the things in life move SLOWLY - regardless of the humans that want things to be fixed right a way! If a leader, like our President, tries to be thoughtful, and purposeful, then we should back him - rather than NOT! But, the CHOICE is for each voter - I will vote for President Obama because I TRUST his sound thinking - NOT because there should be some NEW leader that is NOT yet "tried"!

For Us - Perhaps?

http://news.discovery.com/space/was-earth-a-migratory-planet-120418.html#mkcpgn=emnws1

Today, From just the 1950's, we have learned so much - and have an infinite amount still in front of "us" - I find this extraordinary, human, mind can really "work", if it wants to!

Better or Worse?

http://dealbook.nytimes.com/2012/04/17/citigroup-shareholders-reject-executive-pay-plan/#postComment

TODAY, another sign of IMBALANCE around Earth Planet! Eventually, more folks, from more powerful positions, may begin to realize that when too many of the "common" folks get too troubled or too restless, ANARCHY starts to come around, like a "CANCER", that can "KILL" all of us humans in Earth Planet! Please try - again, to make the future BETTER instead of WORSE!

    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!
