For the indefinite future, I'm taking a break from regular blogging.
In large measure, it's because all too often I'm merely repeating the same old story.
And while the topic du jour always involves different names and different specific situations, the basic story pretty much remains the same.
Too much government, too much debt, too few private sector freedoms, too many financial problems, including pension and 401(k) funding issues for individuals, cities and states, as well as an ongoing hand wringing "we feel your pain" phoniness from our elitist politicians who are acting on their own selfish behalf while purporting to act on ours.
It's "public choice theory" in action, and that's not the way it's supposed to work. In simple terms, public choice theory posits that "public servants" are in reality mostly self interested individuals and not public service oriented politicians, bureaucrats and other public officials. They view their job as taking care of #1, and #1 is not the general public.
Can you guess who #1 is? Of course, you can. So can I.
And there probably won't be anything really all that new to write about soon because as President Harry Truman once said, "The only thing new in this world is the history that you don't know."
So let's all try to keep a healthy and optimistic outlook and tone as the days, weeks and months go by.
We the People are going to need such a positive approach in order to keep a smile on our faces and the guts to speak the truth to all who are willing to listen to the cold hard facts.
So smile and enjoy the day.
That's my take.
