Accordingly, “at least in my considered opinion,” with all the foregoing attributes going for us, why is it so difficult for mankind to share his domain?
Nowhere on the planet Earth, is the word “diversity,” used more than it is used in the United States of America.
According to Webster: di·ver·si·ty, The fact or quality of being diverse; difference.
America, ..and the “Lions share” of what mankind touts as civilization, ..at least publicly, “in my humble opinion” has become so arrogant and obsessed with political correctness that mankind has thrown Mother nature under the bus. Or at least, “again in my considered opinion,” the practice of disrespecting nature has become the agenda of far too many Homo sapiens.
Man, ..to reiterate, ..is a product of nature, we are not as many would like to believe, “omnipotent.” We, “Homo sapiens,” i.e., “human beings,” are marvelous creatures, ..albeit “fragile.” Accordingly, “we,” using the marvelous gift of reason provided by nature, have adapted to nature. Which, “again in my opinion,” is our purpose in life.
Being, “at least what I consider to be a reasonable common sense human being,” I refuse to believe that it is mankind’s purpose or destiny to destroy himself, even though a select few of us throughout history, have openly and aggressively plotted for that end since the dawn of time.
In the 1960s, a commercial enterprise, i.e., “Parker Brothers.” Developed and marketed a board game called;
“The Game of Life.”
(For the nostalgia Buff)
I was eighteen years old in 1960, ..accordingly I can personally attest to the fact, ..that, “Life” was not a “Game” in the ‘60s, ..anymore than life is a game in 2011.
On March 10, 1964, I received a “Greetings” from my local Selective Service Board, inviting me, ..or more correctly, informing me that I was to report to 1033 S. Broadway, Los Angeles California for induction into the United States Army.
(Side note,) ..for those of you who may be curious about how someone can remember the address of the building where they were inducted into the military 47 years earlier, ..I can only assume that you were never inducted into the military. Because for those of us who were, “Franklin Delano Roosevelt” said it best, because, “It was a day of infamy.”
I disembarked from the USS Blatchford along with 4100 other bodies in early October, 1965. The USS Blatchford was not a cruise ship, there were no deck chairs, no luxury cabins, no lounge, no main dining room with an orchestra and a buffet. The Blatchford was troopship, gray from stem to stern except for the ribbons of orange that grew in the crevices and crannies where one part of the old girl was bolted to another. The Blatchford was a production straight out of 1942, albeit with a cast that was not anxious to play their parts.
Vietnam was definitely not, ..as Shakespeare wrote, “A rose by any other name,”Vietnam was a toilet. Albeit, Vietnam was the Vietnamese people’s toilet and they were okay with it. Or, “at least in my opinion,” I believe that they would have done something about it. America, ..in my “earned opinion,” never had any business in Vietnam, ..nor did the French, ..or the Chinese, ..or the Russians.
As long as there are Homo sapiens that lust for wealth and power on the planet Earth, the human race will be locked into conflict. The Earth is a very large piece of real estate, with an abundance of resources, enough for everyone, nevertheless, in the time that I have devoted to providing you with this information, and unknown number of human beings have lost their homes, ..their source of transportation, ..their source of income, ..and even some have lost their lives.
Warren Buffett, ..a man who has accrued a fortune beyond reason, is currently lending his name to Barack Obama in his, “Barack Obama’s” efforts to raise taxes. An effort wholeheartedly supported by the teleprompter reliant buffoons in our liberal media. Not a good thing, “at least in my opinion,” for America, ..as Barack Obama has already spent an amount of America’s wealth, ..not only beyond reason, ..but beyond imagination.
Question: What is enough?
According to Webster: e·nough, Sufficient to meet a need or satisfy a desire; adequate:

Question: What is reason?
According to Webster: rea·son, The capacity for logical, rational, and analytic thought; intelligence.
On Thursday last, September 22, Fox news and Google co-sponsored another horse and pony show, i.e., a third GOP Presidential debate, which featured;
From left to right, former New Mexico Gov., Gary Johnson, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, former speaker of the house, Newt Gingrich, Congressman Ron Paul, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, businessman Herman Cain, former Gov. of Utah, Jon Huntsman Jr.
In my considered opinion:
Gary Johnson, ..in a word, ..nervous.
Rick Santorum, ..in two words, ..still unremarkable.
Newt Gingrich, ..the only “man” on the dais, “in my opinion” with the intellect and presence, to get my vote. Albeit between the general public’s political ignorance and the liberal media’s bias, my common sense tells me that Newt hasn’t got a chance.
Ron Paul, I appreciate Ron Paul’s commitment to personal responsibility, however with that said, I sadly differ to the fact that the average “citizen” in the United States of America in the 21st century, “in my considered opinion,” due to welfare and progressive liberal “free lunch“ programs established by dedicated leftists over time, ..is literally incapable of self-reliance.
Rick Perry, ..a total buffoon, ..if they like him in Texas, “in my opinion,” ..”they” should continue paying his rent.
Mitt Romney, “Mutt to Rick Perry’s Jeff,” ..not a “Good Old Boy” that I would personally like to see in the White House.
Michele Bachmann, ..a gallant lady, ..albeit, ..sadly, ..not big enough to duke it out with the “Good Old Boys.”
Herman Cain, ..I truly believe that the man means well, ..but 3% of the electorate will not get you to the White House.
Jon Huntsman Jr., ..no disrespect intended, ..however if my father was a billionaire, ..I would own the most beautiful 450 Stearman on planet and you would not be, “at this moment,” or any moment in the future, reading my “pearlsofprofundity.”
I have made no secret of the fact that I like Sarah Palin for President in 2012, ..however with that said, ..alluding to “my God-given common sense,” ..I understand that one can not win the lottery without ticket, ..nor can one be elected to the Office of President of the United States, ..without declaring their candidacy.
Accordingly, ..if Sarah Palin turns out to be a “straw dog,” ..and Newt Gingrich is still around for the primary, simply by virtue of Mr. Gingrich’s intellect, I will support him with every word in my vocabulary. What the heck, ..if Buba isn’t ready to appreciate what a dedicated woman can bring to the table, beyond a platter of porkchops and grits? ..then I suppose a man with brains and ethics would be my next choice.
Think about it, I’ll be back tomorrow
