Some people are better at following through - on behalf of others - with their noble thoughts of truth, genuinely praiseworthy love, admirably giving of themselves -- committed to the excellence and purity of Justice for All. Still, there are no presidents, police, priests, candidates, lives of any color -- and certainly no Wall Street Bankers who have achieved, perfection.

However, thoughtful common sense reveals the bloody truth: the assassinations of JFK, MLK Bobby and police prove, enduring victories, whether Revolutions or not, are not sprints, but toiling uphill plods -- dragging those who resist letting go of the past.

Anyone can have Faith, Hope and Charity in their hearts and minds when guns, bombs and trucks aren't killing people, but the real proof of strength of character is holding on when life is tragic. Real change, like healing requires patience and perseverance -- not bailing when it doesn't go your way.

Even The Marshall Plan had $trings attached. So believing we are not imperialistic when allowing Caesar-like leaders to build a global empire of military bases as shots heard round the world, is as self-deluding as denying melting glaciers.

America is not the best in everything any more than Americans are perfect. Nor, as 9/11 tragically proved, are we invincible. Nonetheless, we do have the courage to move forward with renewed hope, when we prudently investigate violent origins, for Nothing Comes from Nothing.

America has been at war for 223 of its 240-year existence, and since Conservatives in China, Russia, ISIS and America haven't learned the futility of this lesson, they continue to turn those they've historically treated as worms, into multi-headed Anacondas.

We are reaping what international banking institutions, oil cravers and their political enablers have sowed: the predictable violence of Middle East hell-fires stoked by Wolfowitz & Cheney and the repercussions of an unhealthy planet, extinguishing animal kingdoms, safe food, clean air and free water.

Such inhumane behavior inspires hate to lock and load, streaming global vengeance is mine between dueling murderous religious zealots and insatiable commercial gluttons.

Anyone with a fifth grade vocabulary can stick a political T-Bone in a VP pick, P, but adult practitioners of the half-full glass know, with knowledge of our past educating the path ot our future, our cup overflows with human kindness.

Parable: a little old Jewish lady, spending her life routing the gencer discrimination and religious bias of her youth, opts out of cooking and cleaning to spend her nights studying law cases, was supremely knighted the little woman of the house, and therefore, not qualified to teach law, at least not for a salary commiserate with a man's. Petite, only in physical stature, and following Bushrod Washington, Salmon P. Chase, William O. Douglas, Harlan Fiske Stone, Sandra Day O'Connor, Warren Burger and Abe Fortas precedents -- reserving her big legal stick, she softly speaks truth to fakery -- whispering for national fact-checking.
