Farming looks mighty easy when your plow is a pencil and you’re a thousand miles from the corn field.”   —   Dwight D. Eisenhower

(My very first President!  Born in Texas, but mainly raised in Kansas.  He was actually born David Dwight, but his mother switched the order, to avoid the confusion of having two Davids in the family, with his dad being David too.  Also, his family Anglicized their last name, from the original German Eisenhauer.  I ran into a local Eisenhauer when I was working the census back in 2010, and they clued me into that little tidbit.  He tried to warn us all of the burgeoning Military-Industrial Complex, but we were a bit too slow on the uptake with that.  Now, it’s grown to the Military-Industrial-Congressional Complex, and there is pretty much no stopping it.  It has effectively taken over our country.  I wish old Ike had made a bigger issue of his warning, but at the heart of it, he was just being a good soldier.  He couldn’t help himself.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

You don’t lead by hitting people over the head – that’s assault, not leadership.”   —   Dwight D. Eisenhower

(Why don’t they make Republicans like Eisenhower anymore???  I like Ike!  When he made the decision to get into politics he must have just flipped a coin, or something!  Too bad he didn’t go for two out of three.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Motivation is the art of getting people to do what you want them to do because they want to do it.”   —   Dwight D. Eisenhower

(Tonight, I lack the motivation to come up with anything remotely witty, or meaningful.   Too tired.  Ike was the President when I was born, but I was just a wee lad by the time he was done.   Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(But . . . won’t that put all the “intelligence agencies” out of work???  Would it were the world was so simple.  Backroom deals, with substantial financial considerations, and dancing with the devil is the unfortunate reality of foreign and domestic policy, these days.  And, to a certain extent, is how it has always been done.  But, ya gotta like Ike!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
