Foreign Affairs Symposium

One of my favorite take-a-ways from the writings of John Kenneth Galbraith was his observation that the high-priests of economics and finance can strive mightily to intimidate us with their esoteric and sublime wisdom hopelessly leagues above the understanding of simple folk like us.

The self-same applies to those who struggle mightily to appear Presidential.  The “Foreign Affairs” appellation said with due professional gravity is intended to mystify all others too paltry lame to understand the depths of the mysterious East (or Middle East)..  Just shut up and cave-in to me--your exalted leader!  (Humm…remember the Weapons of Mass Destruction incantation used to justify a disastrous war?)

Matthew 6:21 (PHILLIPS)
Put your trust in God alone

19-21 “Don’t pile up treasures on earth, where moth and rust can spoil them and thieves can break in and steal. But keep your treasure in Heaven where there is neither moth nor rust to spoil it and nobody can break in and steal.

For wherever your treasure is, you may be certain that your heart will be there too!”

(President Trump is a devout Christian splendidly known for never needing to ask forgiveness)
