A fuunny joke about leadership.
The game of baseball can teach us a lot about how to run a country. Even President Obama deserves a second chance at bat, especially with a congress that cannot find any common ideas to build a country on, perhaps this is the best of all game plans – run down the clock!
The great American sport develops honesty, character, and teamwork. Baseball has been very good to me. One thing for certain – we cannot go back to the past. There are no time machines and no silver bullet.
Yes, the future is uncertain, but this is the age of discovery. We in our great unison of diversity learn every day something old and something new, and baseball is just like running a country.
Once we have learned something, we may practice a trade as a real art. We can apply what we know to the seat of our pants.
Our discoveries will take us farther and higher than before. Based on what we have learned from the past, and now, we can and will begin to rebuild America and the world from the ground up, atom by atom. In the beginning of time as now, we face great challenges.
Now as the world tries to turn the pages of history, we face a turning point. As the World is turning, so do the days of our lives.
Our fathers did this long ago, and now it is time to do again what our ancestors did. Soon, we will chose our executive chief, who will help us learn the basics of building a new nation. Let us do so and we will seek our hearts for the wisdom to choose correctly, and we will do this in the spirit of prayer. We will pray for our nation.
It will then be set in stone in stone the rules by which we will do our nations business. The environment and the economy can and will survive and prosper during the next term. It is then that it will be set in stone. Our season of discontent will be over. Our course will be set and the future will be have been determined and we will be graded on the test of our manhood.
Now, based on what we have learned in the past, and based on what we are bound to learn in coming ages, we will pass or fail the great test of life. And with the help of the All Mighty, we will pass on to our offspring and to their offspring a lasting legacy.
The Human race is very bright, and as a race finds it very difficult to unlearn what we have spent our younger years learning. The possibility of failure and it is consequences may lead to economic disaster. Americans do not want to be reminded be of a recent disaster. Our children do not want to hear a story about that, so we make up a fairy tale. Tell me the story again. Jenny tells her mother. Please say it again.
In the real world earthquakes and mass destruction take place. The earth vomits and terrible events take place. Sudden events lead to something like Eisenhower had to face, a great depression.
That is my hot rice dish! “Chow Mine”! You cannot do that! I just got my bicycle and I don’t want to give it up it! Go ahead and put my daddy in prison! My daddy is tough. He can take it.
But this time around, we tell our children another great story about baseball.
The Top Cats in the world are not immune to hardship. We nations of the world will face this situation together and face any eventuality and this is what separates the men from the boys.
So, we should be ashamed of ourselves for not doing more to contribute to the needs of the hungry, and do a little downsizing of our dinner portions. To paraphrase the Bible, “Blessed are the pizza makers for they just might get a no bull prize for telling the truth.”
It is time for the politicians of the world to stop telling people what they want to hear. Just be Frank or Earnest. If you cannot be Earnest, be Joulio. But let us change the mission of the U.S. to the mission of US and become pizza makers and feed the world. And stop being so selfish!
A hush falls on the park. This is the last pitch of the season. Not a single run was made – a perfect game. The announcement is heard over the loud speakers everywhere! The game is over! The national debt has been paid in full. And the energy crisis is over too! The whole world will be fed. The excitement is overflowing into the parking lots. Children are running out into the streets between the cars completely out of control. The crowds at the old Angel Park can not believe it is true. The throngs are singing praises! The fans are going out two by two praising our one and only God!
Some people don’t ever want to go home again. Sirens and alarms are going off everywhere. The whole world is awakened by car horns. Trumpets are sounding. “Well, I declare!” People are awakened deep in the middle o’ the night. What is all this racket people are asking? Its a capacity croud! The highest attendance ever presses and sways in a virtual sea of humanity! It’s another perfect game! Nobody gets on base!
And Mr. Peabody the inventor of the Way Back Machine gets to be President!
