Opinion: Puzzle analogy in Globe column still leads me to “no” vote

Everyone pretty much looks at life and the things that make it up through their own eyes. Viewpoints are like fingerprints – they are meant to differ from one another, that’s what gives us our grounding, our individuality.

Sunday, John Skipper set up in his column the puzzle of sorts and its intent is to have us all think. But he wants you to lean in the direction he points to. I truly love his analytical approach to this Renaissance project. Admittedly he is taking the long way around the block. His offering is in disguise, it may appear to be mundane but believe me it’s not. He talks of puzzles and takes you through the path of construction; starting with the four corners first. People who are drawn to challenges always build from the corner inwards. If I were to profile this segment of society I would label them thinkers, quick to seek solutions that would expedite the course set before them. John touches on catch phrases such as “friendly competition” which is actually not friendly… these people want to mortgage your house as they sugar coat the lies they are feeding you. How heartless can you get? John takes you to near completion with only one elusive piece of the puzzle that is missing. He talks about surveys that were taken and he gives you the acronym of each. There are so many listed it looks like alphabet soup… ”If” and it’s a giant if, they actually exist why then were they never made public. “Make believe” surveys are exactly what they imply….make believe. I repeat, if John wants you to believe him simply because he put a bowl of Alphabet Soup in front of you, then why doesn’t the Globe publish these surveys John brought forth? My money is on red, the international symbol for danger.

Are you ready now? I am about to reveal the missing piece John refers to, of course I knew immediately not only what it is, but also who is holding it back from everyone. The missing piece in all of this grand swindle is the TRUTH! Who then is holding it back from the general public? Eric Bookmeyer!

Please vote no…..take charge of your own destiny.
