Practical Forest Gump-like advice on life itself includes this: when you’re in a hole, stop digging.  That’s where Representative Michael Turner seemed to be coming from in a recent speech, saying

“As I look at the world we live in — where nuclear dangers from proliferation threats such as Iran and North Korea, the instability between India and Pakistan, and the sophistication of Russian and Chinese nuclear capabilities are all increasing — it seems a misguided priority to focus on disarmament, and U.S. disarmament in particular, when the conditions that might permit it don’t exist,’’ the lawmaker added.

Taking that quote and rephrasing it into Gump (and encompassing the crumbling U.S. nuclear infrastructure) similar advice could be represented as such: when you’re bleeding out, stop cutting yourself.
