Do you want to know what causes nut jobs to shoot people?

Good day to PACK boxes - what a downpour! Cold at that. The lake is whipped into a raging frenzy.

Movers arrive tomorrow. I remember why I move so seldom - it sucks! LOL.

I am so sorry for the Tucson people killed by the idiot at a Congressional meeting. We have let the nut jobs blow too long.

We are AMERICANS: we choose ballots over bullets. We don't need to follow the nut jobs in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan - they prefer the bullet. That is what makes us unique, or has.

We can disagree without shooting people. We've allowed extremists to make millions spreading false facts on radio and TV, calling the President "Imam" etc. Yes, I'm talking about the jerks Limbaugh and Beck.

Do you want to know what causes nut jobs to shoot people, including a Congressional rep?

People like this: Rush Gasbag and Glenn Beckenstein. Listen to the false hysteria promoted by these two con jobs. They lie to million of American people for profit - not for TRUTH.

They shout "Fire" in a crowded theater: radio and TV.

They falsely claim the President was not born in the U.S. or the biggest lie that an American President would actually try to sabotage the U.S. They put crosshairs on the political opponents, as Palin did. They shout "reload!"

We are AMERICANS: we choose ballots over bullets. We have to return to respecting people and civil dialogue, and TRUTH. It matters for our future.

4 year old Insight -Kids can say the darnest things

Kids can say the darnest things, as Art Linkletter used to say. And I think that's true before they get to be teenagers lost in the world of IPhones, etc.

My favorites are the 4 -7 year olds I've been around lately. They have an intelligence, and curiosity and desire to communicate that teens don't since the latter are trying to assert their independence (like the horror of being seen in a restaurant with mom and dad).

Last night I was at a dinner which included 3 grandchildren - all girls from 1 year, 4 years and 5. I was talking to their grandmother about how they seemed to get through holidays without any family drama and that they could be a role model for families.

At that point the 4 year old said: "That's lame" in a soft little voice. I had to stop and laugh. She is so funny, and bright!

She was also the one who dropped the bomb in a very casual way when she said: "We are going to live in a high rise with mom and in the house with dad." Wow. Pretty calm reaction to a split.

Linkletter was right, kids say the darnest things. And they have great insight. I'm thinking we could use more of them in Congress in the days ahead, when adults deal in fantasy and kids tell the truth, even when it's lame...
