One-Liner Wednesday — Good Judgement


“Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.”

Will Rogers

I like to believe that I generally exercise good judgement. And I also believe that good judgement is not something you’re born with. It surfaces only after a lot of trial and error, sometimes after years of exercising bad judgement.

As to what Will Rogers said, I tend to agree,  with one caveat. The difference between good judgement and bad judgement often depends on who is doing the judging.

For example, did the Republicans yesterday exercise good judgement in passing the new tax bill?

    Several Republican lawmakers have acknowledged to CNN that the final process is ripe for
    potential errors, due to the negotiations process for this bill moving too fast and them trying to cram super important, super complex legislation into this convoluted structure.

    Thank Goodness, I read your post. I was going to use the same quote. Anyway Sensei you saw how Fox is painting it. Guess they don’t want their ‘Disney deal’ to get ruined.

      Unfortunately, there’s no choice until next November, at which time I hope American voters will exercise better judgement.
