Well did Silent Cal understand the Wisdom of the passage:

" Be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath ..."

~ James 1:19

    National politics being a natural megaphone, demonstrates well the in context accuracy of the concept.

    The opposite can also be as accurate. By not saying anything, the hurt of despotism and tyranny is recognized when giving silent acceptance to the ever expanding statist theocracy infesting this land with its loss of liberty, rights and personal sovereignty.

    The secret and wisdom of the topic is to know what, when and where of expression.

    It's better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool than open it and remove all doubt, True , most of the time , but Mike is also right.
