If Not Now, When?. . . I'm not too smart. . .

Colonel Jack Howard Jacobs U.S Army retired, book had the quote; 'if you don't know where you're going, any road will get you there.'
He also quotes George Santayana, which led to my searching for his quotes.

Those who do not remember the past.
Are condemned to repeat it.
~ George Santayana

Only the dead have seen the end of the war.
~ George Santayana

The young man who has not wept is a savage.
And the older man who will not laugh is a fool.
~ George Santayana

History is a pack of lies.
About events that never happaned.
Told by people who weren't there.
~ George Santayana

Wisdom comes by disillusionment.
~ George Santayana

The Bible is literature, not dogma.
~ George Santayana

The wisest mind has something yet to learn.
~ George Santayana

The highest form of vanity.
Is love of fame.
~ George Santayana

To know what people really think.
Pay regard to what they do.
Rather than what they say.
~ George Santayana

Almost every wise saying has an opposite one.
No less wise, to balance it.
~ George Santayana

The great difficulty in education.
Is to get experience out of ideas.
~ George Santayana

Tyrants are seldom free;
The cares and instruments.
Of their tyranny enslave them.
~ George Santayana

Character is the basis of happiness.
And happiness the sanction of character.
~ George Santayana

America is a young country.
With an old mentality.
~ George Santayana

In Khizr Khan's book 'An American Family', his grandfather tell him, no man is complete without an education.
Both of these men, have a great love for this nation.

Right now, I'm watching the intelligence chiefs testifying before the senate intelligence committee.
Which bring me, to the point of realizing, the grave danger the 'daft twerp' is doing to undermine the day he held accountable for all his mis-deeds.
If you read about all the banks he failed to pay, making it impossible to get any money.
So he turned to banks out of this country, that made use of money from Russia, China and other countries that made the old Soviet Union.
He also failed to pay some of his employees.
Now he wanted to cut down on visas.
But that doesn't stop him for asking for visas to fill some jobs in his Mar-a-Lago Club in Florida.
Ricardo has copied & pasted the text below;
The Russian oligarchs are business oligarchs of the former Soviet republics who rapidly accumulated wealth during the era of Russian privatization in the aftermath of the dissolution of the Soviet Union in the 1990s.
This is one reason, he won't make his tax return public, it will list all the banks outside the USA and the source of most of his money.

Tell me who you walk with, and I'll tell you who you are.

Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
Diabetes II or Diabetes 2
Affect a few.
What's a body to do?
Walk a few.
Blocks or in a local mall.

Looking more like the puppet Walter!

Ricardo in virtual reality.
Virtual reality.
Is the term used to describe a three-dimensional.
Computer generated environment.
