San Diego –– As you know, I hold the intel reports of Stratfor in the highest regard. They are incisive, insightful, and most importantly, politically objective since they serve a community that needs to know the truth not some party’s spin on it. But i’ve never seen a better analysis of why BOTH sides of our political aisle seem trapped in philosophical Never-Never Land than their latest report.
if you would like to understand the heart of the problem and perhaps, with that understanding, gain some insights into possible solutions that seem to elude our politically crippled government, do yourself a big favor and read the article from the link below. It is not short and simple but neither is the problem. But part of our failure to address it stems from our insistence on trying to convey everything in short sound bites and bumper stickers.
Since I cannot improve on this i give it to you straight from the horse’s mouth, so to speak rather from the horse’s other end which is the source of most of our information coming out of the government on both sides…
