“The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook.”  --William James

The Sacredness of the Oval Office


One can say this with conviction: America is second to none in having done so much for the freedom and well-being of the world.

The universal wisdom has been that America inherently overlooks her poor section of people who choose to cheat welfare as a certain mother who has ten children out of wedlock, collecting a hundred thousand-plus dollars a year. The grandma is the kids' caretaker.

Another example is one who owns several houses -- but the home-ownership is put in his/her children’s name -- and got section-8, and rents it out for profit while she/he lives with the children in his/her own house.

The other section of people cheat tax to get richer, or a business owner who hides cash in order to pay less tax.  

But in the place of government where each worker is a public servant, a supervisor must not manage a team in which his/her spouse is a subordinate. The spouse must be transferred to a different team or facility for the reason of “conflict of interest.” It’s the policy of nepotism.

In the Oval Office, the Presidency represents the sacredness of The United States of America. It has been a constitutional rule that a presidential candidate’s parents must be both American citizens at his/her birth.

This is for the national security. And it is written in our respected, timeless Constitution.

There are silent American geniuses whose parents were not both American citizens at their birth so that they never prepared to run for the U.S. presidency. And our nation must not overlook.

And America's future generations must not be wronged.
