When is “No” better than “Yes”?

Hopefully, saying “yes” to something means you understand what you are saying yes to. How many times have we said “yes” when we really have no idea what the results of  that “yes” really meant? Hopefully not many.

How many times has our city council said “yes” when they really had no idea what they were saying “yes” to.

When is “No” better than “Yes”? Always, when you don’t know what you are talking about.

When is it too late to be smart? Never.

Remember, it’s never too late to be smart. Just say “no” when you are not 100% sure about the results of what you are saying “yes” to.

Voting “yes” may comfort insecure or uninformed politicians, but it inevitably leads to disaster.

  1. Good post. Councilpersons are forever going along with stuff about which they are clueless, because:

    1) don’t wish to appear ignorant; and

    2) they actually trust nincompoops who cook up the boondoggles; and

    3) they confuse collegiality with staff and colleagues as the prime directive; and

    4) they want to be seen to be doing something; and

    5) “No” is just so, um…negative!

    Why can’t they people, especially the ones professing to be “conservative,” realize that saying “no” is perhaps the greatest gift that we bestow upon ourselves in a democracy.
