Living in the Millisecond Age

Time was when one had time to reflect and the suggestion, “…Let me think on that…” meant a distinct period of future time.

Not so, today.

We now live in the ultra-fast lane of intimidating milli-seconds.

At our disposal lies Google, Wiki, Twitter, Facebook, etc….what need is there for reflection?

Reflection…what’s the matter with you?

Millennia ago a wisdom writer suggested, “…the heart of the righteous thinks before it speaks…”. Not so today!

Today we have the wisdom of the ages at our fingertips!

So, our “fingertips” make decisions and lo, and behold we find ourselves in a “world of hurt”;’ thank you Bernanke, Geitner, et al!

One wisdom writer also suggested, “…let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak…:”

Would this mentality reigned in our Beltway and among our Elite!

Sadly, this does not seem to be the case. To our beltway Elite we are sheep: to be led, to be led to the shearing, and eventually to the slaughter.


One day, hopefully, some one will read The Politics of Obedience

In terms of Freedom...they do allow us to bleat just prior to the release of their guillotine
