Thursday Night Soulfood....5.1.08

"Pain is the Root of all Knowledge" Simone Weil

Well, Crikey...we must ALL be brilliant by now...I think that today we reflect on these past 7 years of Bush....there has been alot of pain...too much pain...But the bigger question is Are WE Wiser ?

Great music by two wonderful musical entities.

Have we learned. Did we learn after Nixon? or Reagan? or H? we may have learned four or even 8 years worth...maybe E4E, but to this liberals eyes, I doubt we learned the lessons that abide with us and change our hearts as a society.

The conservative view always re-emerges as something new. It has been this duplicity from them that I have seen all my lifetime beginning with Goldwater.[Thank God he didn't make the cut then, even though today he would be judge as to liberal by the theocons of today.]

No we may have learned but I don't think we have evolved.

Sad Peace

I'm not too optimistic myself. We are a sleeping, unconscious nation.

Are we wiser? Probably not. In the words of P.T. Barnum, "nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people." Or failed to get elected (that's mine).

Barnum got the big picture...he understood people better than animals....
