Jack’s Winning Words 4/4/16
“Do what you can with what you have where you are.”  (Theodore Roosevelt)  Let’s play the “what if” game.  What if Teddy Roosevelt were running for President today?  Well educated, an environmentalist, a reformer, a Rough Rider and a progressive/conservative…  Let’s play a different “what if.”  What if we were to follow TR’s lead…and not complain about what we can’t control…and do something positive where we are, with what we have?  What if…?    ;-)  Jack

FROM TARMART REV:  ...I'm not sure too many would vote for me nowadays for President of the United States?! --might make the mix for a good pastor, though!!====JACK:  Would you be able to capture the evangelical vote from Cruz?====REV:  To tell you the truth, my heart was drawn to Ben Carson...I think he would have been a better example of who  I was hoping our current President was to be. I might be using a write-in vote this time around, "God"!

FROM RJP IN NAPLES:  IF"S?  "If  ifs and buts were candy and nuts what a wonderful world it would be" (Stan Laurel)====JACK:  In our world, it seems that we have some nuts promising candy.

FROM CHESTER THE GOOD:  A favorite Sampler of mine..."Fix it up.  Wear it out.  Make it do.  Do without."====JACK:  We who grew up during the Great Depression know the truth of that statement.

FROM OUTHOUSE JUDY:  It would be wonderful to think he would be elected!  I would have voted for him! Ben Carson was our choice....not sure what to do now.====JACK:  Some of my favorites were not elected, but somehow the country has survived.  I'm sure that that will be the case after this year's election.

FROM BLAZING OAKS:  Bill used to have a saying, oft quoted: "It's not what you'd do with a million, if fortune should be your lot, but what you're doing now, with the buck and a half you've got."...another way was saying what TR said.  good words!====JACK:  Have you (or anyone else that you know) ever said, "When I win the lottery...."?
