And the Next Step Is?

Belt tightening.

Up till now I have been trying to provide at least symbolic support to various groups of well intended folk whose goals are similar to mine, even though — if one analyzes the problem and the actions — it’s pretty clear they haven’t got the foggiest chance of success. The idea was that in a time when there are so many people with hostile and harmful intentions, good intentions are enough to be worthy of support.

From now my view will be to avoid donating time or money to projects that have little chance of success. This was the genesis of my “toxic tolerance” blog several days ago. They wanted more money. Sadly I decided against supporting an organization that is so dedicated to their own mind set that they can not accept donations of expertise from a field outside their own.

For quite a different reason I’ve now dropped a different group. First they wanted me to tell Obama to stop global warming and today they want me to tell Obama to stop hurricanes. I swear — that’s what they said. If it wasn’t what they meant I will never know, because there is not much point reading further than a headline that is that far out of touch with reality.

I’ll keep my hard-won dollars in my own jeans.
