I gotta vent…b%#@… get past the mop thing

This is driving me nuts.

I can find more wisdom in a 25 year old stack of Buffett albums than I can in the current administration.


Obama(2009,fund raiser)

“I’m busy and Nancy busy with our mop cleaning up somebody else’s mess — we don’t want somebody sitting back saying, you’re not holding the mop the right way.  Why don’t you grab a mop, why don’t you help clean up.  You’re not mopping fast enough. That’s a socialist mop.  Grab a mop — let’s get to work.”

Jimmy Buffett(1981, Coconut Telegraph)

A street sweeper came whistlin’ by
He was bouncin’ every step
It seemed strange how good he felt
So I asked him while he swept

He said “It’s my job to be cleaning up this mess
And that’s enough reason to go for me
It’s my job to be better than the rest

And that makes the day for me

Sad but true


2 quotes I found by MLK jr.

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

ooh that has to hurt
