Hope that the next president quits.

I’m voting for Hillary due to her shaky health.    And I put forth the proposition that the best hope for the American people is that the next US president either quits his/her job as president or becomes incapacitated.

Either Mike Pence or Tim Kaine would make a better presidential leader in my opinion.  Hillary obviously has health issues, notably her most recent stumble and prior disappearance after the Benghazi incident due to health problems.

Trump’s physical health appears stable.  Mentally and emotionally, he is questionable at best.  And he is wicked sly.
In an alternate scenario, Trump’s plan is to put “his man” in the White House.  It goes like this: Trump leads the political attack, obtains the presidency and then resigns.  Trump leaves Mike Pence as president.

There are no good choices in this presidential race.  The best hope it to “play the odds” that we can get a good president via the vice-president.  Sadly, I hope that Hillary quits the presidency or that Trump quits the presidency (if either is elected).

God bless America.

See something, do something

The opportunity to help someone often appears unexpectedly during one’s life time.  And often the opportunity is simply not recognized and/or sometimes it is inconvenient for one to become involved.

Serving others in need is what makes us human and gives us a life sustenance for the soul as it were.  But often one is driven by emotional inertia – we’re on a mission – and our “thinking cap” is not tightly fastened.

One’s “presence” of mind at those times can be over-ridden by one’s emotional inertia.  The car ahead is blocking the path while the passenger and driver change seats. . .and they are slow to do it.  One’s emotional inertia pushes one’s buttons. . .creating impatience and judgmental thoughts.

Instead, if one had “presence” one might be thinking if a need existed for one’s assistance.  Is that car’s driver having nausea, Read more
