The teams...

Once upon a time ,when people broke in their  jeans and would wander miles from their homes without any means of instant communication , only two teams mattered in the contest to rule the island and take advantage of the resulting power and influence.

Many of us would join the teams that we thought would best promote our interests and participate in elections, all of us would bitch about the results.

Three high priests would appear at 6;30 each night and give us the latest results and updates. Since they only had a few minutes, they tried to be objective and serious and avoided mentioning a team captains' skinny dipping, drunkenness or even unsavory behaviour. The anchor priests had little real power but enjoyed great fame and respect.

Power , influence and wealth still rule but the teams and rules have changed.

Game on.

politics simplified...

I'm an old guy with no life but I've been watching Cable news for 3 years now and have gained brilliant insights into Politics, the greatest sport ever invented.

A sport that has few and ever changing rules,teams that you know about and those you don't,illusion,collusion,delusion, sex and humor.

A sport far more complex than chess, more dynamic than the the NFL and funnier than fiction.

A sport that makes your head hurt if you take it too seriously.

  You are are a player - you're not as important as you think but your instincts and understanding are better than you think.

NEXT - I don't know but soon.
