In Pursuit of Happyness


Have you ever stopped to wonder how is it possible that we elect the so-called best and brightest from Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, etc. and end up with such dissatisfaction at our voting options?

How do folks with the best education that money can buy turn out the worst, most inept, corrupt governments and business environments in recent history?

My point isn’t that these people are unintelligent. I assume they possess great intelligence. I also understand the need to remove money from politics.

Greed. I get it. Greed apparently trumps learning.

Well, if that is the case, let’s stop allowing ourselves to be blinded by these advanced degrees from designer schools because obviously that is not the answer.  While we’re at it I guess we can ignore the adoring spouse, squeaky clean children, and white picket fence as well.

You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to handle some of our countrys’ problems.  What we are missing is leadership. It’s true but not everyone will be happy.

What’s that old saying, “When you’re in a ditch, stop digging?” At some point your reality is what it is. I mean our grand parents and great-grand parents knew this with only a grade school education. They had a greater idea of what was really important.

What is it that we are missing?
