The Squeaky Wheel…May Be Foolish <— Dave Nalle


It seems to be a persistent failing that politicians listen to the loudest voices rather than the wisest ones.

It seems to be a persistent failing
that politicians listen to the loudest voices
rather than the wisest ones.

Character is the Cure to Government


Ralph Waldo Emerson camioHence the less government we have the better–the fewer laws and the less confided power.

The antidote to this abuse of formal government is the influence of private character, the growth of the Individual; the appearance of the principal to supersede the proxy; the appearance of the wise man; of whom the existing government is, it must be owned, but a shabby imitation.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, Politics (1844)

Remember to Think


Vaccinium, also known as epigynous or false berries, because they fruit below the ovaries; Blueberries, cranberries, cowberries (from which vaccinium get their name)The mind is like the stomach. It is not how much you put into it that counts, but how much it digests.

Proactive Government <- I Ching


shaolinThe government that seems the most unwise,
Oft goodness to the people best supplies;
That which is meddling, touching everything,
Will work but ill, and disappointment bring.
– Tao Te Ching
