    Great writing.

    The Golden Rule....the real one.

    The Men with the Gold, make the rules.

    In the olden days, the "others" found solace and joy in community but, then again, the worked together as communities.

    Now a days?  Not so much all too often.  So few are home during the day anymore even the kids.

    It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.

      that dang muse, just won't let me be, lately.

      What's up with that.


      The New Golden Rule:

      Do take advantage of others,

      Before they take advantage of you.


      It's the Nuevo American Way.

            is less effective. But if you go all in and I still have twice as many chips in reserve, then my bet was effective. If that's what Madison intended he should have devoted a whole amendment to it including that using public money to match an opponent's private money is a burden on free speech. What's left over for Congress to regulate is when a candidate shows up at the polls and showers paper money on the voters, that's not protected free speech, so maybe there could be rules that if they do that it has to be anonymous.
