A view about our – we the people – situation

Pls start here:  https://www.forbes.com/sites/jasonbisnoff/2021/04/07/jpmorgan-chase-ceo-jamie-dimon-gets-political-in-letter-to-shareholders/?sh=497be2b82da1

And then go here:  https://reports.jpmorganchase.com/investor-relations/2020/ar-ceo-letters.htm

We borrowed these few words from Mr. Dimon’s link above:

“China’s leaders believe that America is in decline. They believe this not only because their country’s sheer size will make them the largest economy on the planet by 2030 but also because they believe their long-term thinking and competent, consistent leadership have outshone America’s in so many ways. The Chinese see an America that is losing ground in technology, infrastructure and education – a nation torn and crippled by politics, as well as racial and income inequality – and a country unable to coordinate government policies (fiscal, monetary, industrial, regulatory) in any coherent way to accomplish national goals. Unfortunately, recently, there is a lot of truth to this.

Today, the United States and other countries around the world are grappling with many other critical issues. To name just a few: capitalism versus other economic systems; access to healthcare; immigration policy; the role of business in our society; and how, or even whether, the United States intends to exercise global leadership. Many Americans have lost faith in their government’s ability to solve these and other problems – in fact, most people would describe government as ineffective, bureaucratic and often biased. Almost all institutions – governments, schools, media and businesses – have lost credibility in the eyes of the public. And perhaps for good reason: Many of our problems have been around for a long time and are not aging well. Politics is increasingly divisive, and government is increasingly dysfunctional, leading to a number of policies that simply don’t work.”

And then we’d simply like to offer our brief few words – freedom is wonderful… and has one simple needed 24/7 action from we the people who live/die for it…

… RESPONSIBILITY!

Comprehendin’ what’s really goin’ on in America today – simply stated... a repetitive history lesson

I write and offer the fundamentals for simple basic (fundamental) reasons.  The most significant of which is the historical repetitiveness of Homo sapiens behavior.   Over and over, again and again, we the people allow others to behave in repetitive routines leading over various time periods to various forms of self destruction.  

Now before continuing this observation we ask that you borrow or buy a copy of the book entitled 1942* written by Winston Groom* (1943 - 2020) with the subtitle The Year That Tried Men’s Souls.

Author Groom on pages 90 – 100 of 1942* offers various historical facts and possibilities about the Japan attack on Pearl Harbor and  America’s entrance into World War II.  Worth reading in my view for a simple basic (fundamental) reason – history changes in fashion and location; events and individuals, but the outcome and responsibility of events bare repetitive occurring end results.   That simple statement is why I am concerned about our future – America’s future – and why I offer these words.  I am well aware of the unlikely occurrence of a wake up call before it’s too late.   History simply repeats its lessons as displayed in our title words above. Events, occurrences and participants are somewhat different – end results repeat similar outcomes.

America is not the answer to the world’s repetitive historical nonsense.    We need commitment.  We were given commitment by our founders/fighters.  It's called "responsibility."  Encouraged to avoid various forms of unneeded and repetitive forms of historical nonsense.   Today here at home its 24/7 news/opinion/government/politician/bureaucrat irresponsible NOnSENSE = aka DEBT!!

We – the fundamentals – are simply suggesting a bit of history to possibly provide a wake up call before it’s simply too late and Homo sapiens stupidity repeats!

  • Folks that’s all for today in this “wake up call”
  • The lesson(s) of Homo sapiens repetitiveness
  • We the people versus…
  • … the buffoons (aka 435/100/9/1++++000,000’s more – nincomPOOPs) enroute to self destruction
  • We the people simply ain’t doin’ what our founders and fighters did when needed
  • Freedom simply requires “RESPONSIBILITY” and...
  • ... occasional POOP flushin’ (aka votin’) – TJefferson said/wrote it – used different words; pls go to: https://tjrs.monticello.org/letter/100


*  This book is worth your time to read... as are Mr. Groom's other offerings

America today – lots of “media” – lots of “advertising” – lots of issues – lots of discomfort – and a few more “lots of things”… we’ll close with just one of ‘em – LOTS OF DEBT

We like to offer an open view.  Speak your mind – share your view – as we are about to do.    Pls fill in the many government “employees” names who you vote for and/or pay who speak about… no, not the normal letter sized title items offered above but the capitalized three words… LOTS OF DEBT.   Pls write their names:

______________________     ________________________   ____________________

We gave you three blanks above for a simple reason – when it comes to DC each of us gets to vote every two or six years for a nincomPOOP – oops we mean one rep or two sens.    Why would anyone with a brain and let’s just say 5 or 10 years of real adult working experience vote for a nincomPOOP?   One who simply doesn’t do what this fella was taught long ago by good people?  His Mom, dad, brother, family, neighbors, even teachers and attorneys back then – they worked!  They volunteered.   They did not complain.  Well, not too often.  They repaid every penny they borrowed!

Lets close with one more question and a few facts – didn’t our founders and fighters (some gave all) teach us a simple lesson by factual performance of what is needed to be free?    Not endless smelly DEBT POOP droppin’s we know are not repayable?  Did anyone teach you that the required 24/7 need of liberty and freedom is… sit tight folks…

...RESPONSIBILITY?

The 435/100/9/++++others are stealin’ freedom.   POOPs + unrepayable DEBT get the theft job done!   Read a history book - no not one from today's media POOPs - from a founder/fighter!!
