As one gazes around the world, one thing is very clear, decisions by people have caused problems, not ideology. Vladimir Putin has changed policies in Russia which resulted in death and destruction in Ukraine. Chinese leaders are responsible for persecution of those seeking to create a democracy in the land. Muslim clerics created terrorist groups by preaching words of hate and violence. Identify any problem in the world and it is clear that people made choices. Recep Erdogan, now President of Turkey, turned away from working toward creation of a democratic nation. Heck, former President Gul disagreed with Erdogan choices and now Turkey is moving away from democracy. Current leaders of Egypt had many choices to create a modern Egyptian nation, but refused. Instead of focusing upon economic development and freeing forces of economic changes, Egyptian leaders decided upon policy of terror.
Here in America, people like Ted Cruz or John Boehner, chose policies of obstruction and policies that protect the wealthy in order to create the current state of gridlock. The present mess in Washington has nothing to do with ideology, it is the result of individual choices. If people behave in stupid ways, don’t blame it on ideology, it is their decision to be a nut case who lacks any sense of intelligence! Blame it on individuals, not some ideology or religion!

We offer observations on the human condition from a 24 year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.
NOBODY ASKED ME BUT
I have never used ketchup on any breakfast item.
I go crazy if anything gets stuck between my teeth.
America is at an impasse except for those on social networks. They babble along.
I allowed a car to cut in the line, and no arm waved indicating a thank you!
To accept life is not to approve life.
I doubt if there are tooth fairies in Heaven.
At 84, I wonder about my mind, it would certainly help those at 24 if they did some mind wondering!
Those raised on city streets “read people” when encountering a stranger.
Misread people can result in misread consequences.
Long time since I bossed anyone. No regrets.
I so miss Rick, Newt, Herman, Mitt and the gals!
