How does it happen

that man, who calls in professionally trained doctors rather than shepherds to treat him when sick, has no reason, when well, to let public affairs be conducted by windbags no better qualified than shepherds?

    Only when healthy do they play the game. This is one of the contradicting clarities that faith is just a place to take your mind off the boredom of life, but really has no utility.

    possibly because he realizes he has no expertise in the medical field and trusts the doctors who do–conversely he thinks he knows allll about politics, finance, and government, when he doesn’t, and prefers to trust someone as inept as he is. It doesn’t have to make sense. Lol.

      The two big cities in Kenya- Mombasa and Nairobi- have morons as governors who were elected by a majority of voters, most of whom are far much qualified than the duo. It is beyond understanding how such a thing can be. I think we are irrational generally with bouts of rationality.

    An Oxymoron for Morons.

    Big Money: We will pay them peanuts and keep them busy – so busy that they will not have time to pause and reflect. No time to think. They will be distracted enough to rely on clichés and vote for you puppets—Oops, leaders.

    Wind Bag: But with modern amenities and time saving gadgets – people will have more time on their hands. They will start to think and see through our shenanigans—Oops, our sacrifices for them.

    Big Money: We will give them each a smartphone. Better yet, we’ll make them pay for it.

    Wind Bag: You’re god.

    Big Money: I’m no more than the word.
