Stay The Course—Concern Yourself With The Substance Of The Message And With Your Own Hard Work
Above is a picture of myself from Occupy Houston on October 29.
I found the sign I am holding at the Occupy site.
I often use the phrase “Stay the Course” in my personal conversations.
I use the phrase because I recall that Ronald Reagan used it to his benefit.
We should set a goal and then we should stay the course to reach that objective.
I like everything written on that sign.
You’ll notice the misspelled word on the sign.
I don’t care.
I know that spotting misspelled words on signs made by Tea Party backers is something of a sport for some folks on my side of the aisle.
I think this is often done to make fun of the person holding the sign instead of critiquing the view that person is espousing.
If those folks holding up the misspelled Tea Party signs were so dumb, how come they outworked us and beat us so badly in the 2010 elections?
Calling other people dumb does not make it better when you have been whomped at the voting booth.
People may be a lot of bad things. They may be ill-informed about the issues of the day. Or they not be very nice at times.
But people are not stupid.
If you say somebody is stupid, you’re saying you are better than them in some basic organic biological way.
I’m not for that kind of talk.
That sign I’m holding is a great sign.
Let’s worry about the roots more so than the branches.
Poke around the web and Facebook and find an Occupy effort near you.
