Hope Floats, Until It Doesn’t

Filed in Humor 3 comments

The funny thing about hopium hope is that it’s a great way to sell an argument by appealing to our optimistic nature. Only problem is, using the “sell the hope” technique works only as long as a select few don’t get wise to the ploy or refuse to remain clueless. If they decide to jump off the boat, pray they do so quietly in the middle of the night without everyone else seeing them do it, or else, everyone else will want to abandon Steamship Hopes-A-Lot, too.

“hopium”? That is classic! That explains perfectly what happened to this country 2 years ago. No one person, administration, or political party can fix this country. There has to be a fundamental change in the way that we view money, wealth, and our “entitlement” to both!

Yep! That’s why I always preach rational pragmatism because it’s just as dangerous to keep your head in the clouds, vice versa to pulling an ostrich (bury your head in the sand), because neither person(s) can see what’s happening at ground level.
