At one time, everything I owned fit into my Buick.

In 1994, I spent 10 days in Europe with just carry-on luggage.

Life is simple if you don't have so many things to worry about. Let it go. It's just stuff. Why are you keeping it? Broaden your focus and see that there are far more important things in the world than owning stuff. One of my favorite verses in the King James Bible is Genesis 45:20. "Regard not your stuff."

If your hand isn't open to let go of the thing you have, then your hand isn't open to receive the thing that God wants to give you.

The thing that is most valuable is not always tangible.

What are you going to give away today?

War: What is it Good For?

1964. Lyndon Johnson. War on Poverty. We still have poverty.
1971. Richard Nixon. War on Drugs. We still have drugs.
1971. Richard Nixon. War on Cancer. We still have cancer.
2001. George Bush. War on Terror. We still have terror.

The President's War Powers enable him to enact administrative laws under the Executive Branch departments without Congress ever having declared "war."

I guess it means he gets to spend a bunch of money on say, social programs or imperialism, without waiting around for a Congressional vote.

How convenient.

Nice gig, if you can get it.
