Albert Einstein

The simplicity of his genius.

Albert Einstein, as we all know, was a very intelligent man in the fields of math and many of the other fields of scientific disciplines, … what many do not know was that he was also known for many of his witty quotes, I have listed a few to make my point:

  1. The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.
  2. We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
  3. If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.
  4. Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.

In thinking about what is taking place in Washington, … one would wonder if perhaps Albert Einstein was not looking ahead to our time when he made these quotes.

No man, with any intelligence, could look at the lack of leadership in the White House and not wonder are they really that stupid. Every new statement that comes out of this president’s mouth is one more lie to try to cover up the last lie he told.

When history is written about this presidents term in office, they will be able to summarize it in these words, “total incompetence and stupidity”. Truly Einstein’s quote #1 about stupidity fits here.

There seems to be no limit to the number of lies and evil things this man will do. Quote #2 fits with the programs that the government is putting in place to solve the problems they created with the first program. Lets look a little closer at this second quote, “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”

The government hired an incompetent company to write the health care program, and what many of you don’t know is that it was a no bid contract, given to a friend of the president’s wife, surprise surprise. With this kind of thinking, what could possibly have gone wrong?

Look at taxes, … when taxes are reduced, the government revenues increase. President John Kennedy lowered taxes and free enterprise expanded, business hired new employees, the unemployment rate dropped. So what are the members of both branches of government along with the president wanting to do to solve the current budget problem, of course raise taxesI have a question for you, is this not how we got here in the first place?

Each candidate for public office campaigns on the platform that they will create new jobs. The only jobs they create are positions for more government non-working employees that we the taxpayers have to support. What do they accomplish? They load down the free enterprise system with more rules and laws that restrict the ability to create new free enterprise non-government jobs. With the Obama health care law now in place, over seven thousand new IRS agents were hired, (they will create heart attacks) not prevent them.

When you look at the number of pages in the unconstitutional Obama health care law, the 3rd quote jumps out at you. As of date, no one understands it and they don’t know how to fix it. So the words of this quote rings true, “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough”.

With all that this government is doing and wants to do, it becomes clear that they have not even retained the education that they learned in school, as Einstein’s quote #4 would suggest. They have not only forgotten what was learned in school, but the very foundation of their learning. Schools have become a place to dumb down the American student. More time is spent on teaching political correctness than on education of the main areas of learning, Reading, Writing, Math and the scientific disciplines.

I will end this monograph with this one more quote from Albert Einstein, “When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That’s relativity.”

We still have 3 years left of this mans presidency. These three years will seem like a lifetime. That’s a reality I could do without. … You think about that!
