As I continue in my very cynical state – I have lost patience – with the wishy-washy claptrap and those that believe we, the great unwashed, are there to be placated. This isn’t a new phenomenon for me as I was losing patience three years ago and in those three years I have experienced even more claptrap and not only from the political pundits but from the medical community – time to reprise my thinking of three years ago on this day that is an anniversary of:

One answer I received was They live over 60 miles away- are paid 250 dollars an hour – to tell you something you already know!”

They are not alone in my blame game of gobbledygook, they have plenty of company BUT it is WE THE PEOPLE that enable the gobbledygookers.

I am done with the – win win- out of boxes- moving forward thinking. I just want “common sense ” “integrity”“money where the mouth is to prevail- and I don’t need a study – a plan- a consultant – or ” Keyboard Kops” to evaluate .

Well it is still ok to dream isn’t it?
