Nothing is easier than spending the public money.  It does not appear to belong to anybody.”   —   Calvin Coolidge

(Part of the reason why – today – we are sitting at a National Debt of $22 Trillion, and climbing.  Politicians spend like drunken sailors.  I think they invented the concept of “living in the moment”!  “Sha la la la la la live for today, And don’t worry ’bout tomorrow, hey-ey-ey” . . . on steroids!  It’s not their money, so what do they care?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.”   —   Calvin Coolidge

(Keep cool with Cal!  One of the few times I’ve seen plenteous used!   And, one of the Presidents that I know next to nothing about.  I’m sure he was better than GWB and DJT, but that’s just me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I have never been hurt by what I have not said.”   —   Calvin Coolidge

(This one was pretty easy, but I almost ended it with paid, instead of said.  I must have my creditors on my mind!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Patriotism is easy to understand in America.  It means looking out for yourself by looking out for your country.”   —   Calvin Coolidge

(And, “looking out for” does not mean *not questioning*.  Blind obedience is anathema to patriotism.  Exercise your rights, people.  All those who gave their lives for this country deserve more than a bunch of yahoos who blithely accept all that they’re told, while mindlessly chanting USA, USA, USA.  The ideal of America is not a destination, it’s a never ending journey.  It’s a work in progress, in which we cannot afford to be complacent.  Be well, do good and be aware.  Diligence, tolerance and vigilance are what make us a more unified people.  Peace.)   —   YUR

Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.”   —   Calvin Coolidge

(Today is another one of those consecutive dates.  At different points in time today . . . somewhere in the world . . . at 11:12 AM . . . it’s going to be 08 09 10 11 12.  Numerical nonsense, but it’s fun.  Have a good one, folks!)   —   YUR
