It is being reported that South Carolina congressman Mick Mulvaney will be chosen as President-elect Donald Trump’s person to lead the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).
Normally I can find silver linings within selections; this one?… not so much.
Yes, Mulvaney is Freedom Caucus member, and perhaps you can say he’s generally sold as a fiscal conservative. However, his prior underhanded dealings -with the promotion of the scheme within the House of Representatives to push the hidden amnesty agenda- has forever tainted any positive attributes that may have existed.

This congress critter is a GOPe Decepticon; a “bad hombre“.
If a person was to drain the proverbial swamp, there’ll be that remaining bile. The pus excretions from years of rotting maggot ridden boils amid the infested carcases of the UniParty. The stuff that creates the worst possible stench; the Ebola virus is sanitary by comparison. Well, it’s in that toxic mixture where you find the genesis for the DNA strains that make up Mick Mulvaney’s character.
There are many who are less prone to the severe aversion I carry toward this slimeball. So for the sake of avoiding disunity, I shall digress from further commentary – and just pray I’m wrong…
But, I’m not.
Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Strive to be happy.
