The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

This country wasn't built from Washington

I have been on Marc Cenedella's EMail list for several years.  Mr Cenedella is the founder and CEO of "The Ladders," a placement firm.  I can't recall how I got on the list, but didn't opt off, in case I needed help getting a job due to being laid off.  On the other hand, I am on their free "basic" service plan.

Since I moved here I have been lucky and have not needed to find a new job.  Normally I just delete the Cenedella EMails when I see them.  This time I didn't.  Maybe it was the subject line--"Who's Going to Fix this Mess?"

At any rate, he went to a conference over the weekend and ran into Arizona Senator Jon Kyle.  So, Marc says:
Senator Kyl, who's going to fix this mess?
You know the answer:
You are.
Then the specifics from Senator Kyle:
  1. Get involved politically. Whatever party you're in, get active.
  2. Get involved through civic groups. Whether you're a CPA, or a member of the bar, or a concerned tech executive, or just a patriotic citizen from Boston (Manchester, NH), get active through your civil, professional, or industry associations.
  3. But most of all, Senator Kyl urged, don't wait for Washington.   This country wasn't built from Washington, and it sure isn't going to be saved by Washington. It's going to be the efforts, and the toil, and the work, of the real leaders of the country - people like you who can make a difference every day by making your companies and your communities stronger and better.
As Marc Cenedella said in his EMail:  "Well, folks, that seemed like pretty good advice to me, so I wanted to share it with you."

I loved the line:  "This country wasn't built from Washington, and it sure isn't going to be saved by Washington."  Washington will play a key role, but in the end it will be all of us who will make the difference.  It will be our collective courage and fortitude that will bring this crisis to an end.

PS:  For those of you who subscribe to the formula known as the Newspaper Party Naming Convention (NPNC) with regard to political party association of those mentioned in news stories, no, Senator Kyle is not a Democrat.

He's obviously a Republicrat if his first admonition is to get active in your political party. That's the key phrase that's been used to subvert people from the start, and it has to STOP. It's our participation in the two big parties that's enabled their hacks to screw up our country and steal our treasury.

#1 should read: No, DON'T get active in your political party--QUIT IT.

Then go straight to item #2 and watch how quickly things get better while your proxy is no longer available to be used in Washington to commit felonies and run up record debts on your behalf.

As for #3, well, even a blind squirrel finds an acorn every now and then.
