Flawed Processes

Flawed assessment and decision-making processes are what tend to get many people into trouble and bring them disappointment, resentment, failure, and severe negative consequences.  (Mary Ellen O'Toole, Dangerous Instincts, p. 28)


Last night while channel surfing I found a very nice two-hour program about ventriloquist Jeff Dunham on Biography.  I started watching at the halfway point.  They repeated the program again immediately following the one I watched.  I stayed with it in order to see the whole thing.

In Maryland, where we live, there are many state trust funds earmarked for specific purposes.  For example, Chesapeake Bay Cleanup.  Millions of dollars in taxation have been approved to obtain the money for these trusts.  I watched a television report about how the lawmakers are diverting these monies for unauthorized purposes.  Of course, there is little discussion because they don't want the public to be aware of what's going on.  It's one more indicator of the fact that our government no longer works and that we have elected the wrong people.  I'd venture to guess that this isn't a situation that is limited only to the state of Maryland.  Enough is Enough!
