  • Joe, your take on ‘average’ came straight from my heart. It seems that ‘on the whole’ as a nation, we have become to quick to ‘accept’ anything other than blatant failure. Of course, our acceptance eliminates all chances of excellence…I lost my father when I was but nine,but he left a lesson that has stayed for over 70 years. “Even if you’ve done well, ask yourself if there was more you could do. Remember ‘anyone’ can be average.”…In a literary class I read that “average is an insidious monster inflicted on society by ignorance” It was from a 15th centuary Italian poet whose name I never could pronounce or remember, yet it stuck with me. Excellence does not come to you…you must go to excellence.

    I pray that in 2014 & 2016 that our vetting will reach this this level We may not reach perfect, but we won’t know if we don’t try. We must not ‘stay home’ because ‘our’ candidate isn’t on a ballot’
    If we want ‘qualified’ people, we have to ‘seek & find’…fyi Timmy’s father worked with Barry’s mother

    And, honestly, I think Barry is doing a great job of destroying our Grand Nation by following Valerie Jarrett’s instruction to the letter 1 YIKES!!
