  1. Pundits are people, no different than anyone else who has an opinion. There is an old saying “Opinions are like ‘anuses” — everyone has one” Then there is the old saying ” Don’t piss down my back and tell me it is raining” . So where is one to go to get wisdom ??? There are even older sayings— The book in the Christian bible called “the Book of Proverbs’ is a book written by Solomon the King of Israel after he had asked God for “The Wisdom to rule over the people of Israel – to be a good king in the eyes of God Almighty” He asked for wisdom and not riches, and not power nor an expansion of his kingdom. He was wise in this asking.
    So, if you take my advice read ” the book of Proverbs” -it claims it’s purpose is to make the naive or unlearned wise -” get wisdom by getting knowledge AND understanding. Don’t get knowledge all by itself— get the understanding that must be used with the knowledge– then you can make “wise” decisions for yourself/ for your life. ” Do you see a man wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him”–Proverbs True religion in the sight of God and man is to help widows and orphans in their distress and to keep oneself unstained by the world .
