Oh, dear. Another six months without a new post. That’s the problem with chronic health problems: they get in the way of living your life. This time I’ve set a daily alarm to remind me when to write. But honestly compels me to admit that I might only write once a week. Still, it’s an improvement.
A lot has happened since February. It seems as if our government—of the people, by the people, for the people—has abandoned us just when we need it the most.
If, as the SCOTUS has ruled, corporations are people, maybe their Corona virus relief payments should have been limited to $1200. Just like every other person.
Senators have raised their own pay six times while voting against increasing the minimum wage 15 times. What’s up with that? Maybe, as someone suggested, they should take a tip from Nascar and wear patches identifying their corporate sponsors.
My own motto has changed from “I used to get disgusted; now I’m just amused” to “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore.”
George Washington was right when he warned us in his Farewell Address about the dangers inherent in partisan politics and the growing influence of political parties.
Look, I try to remain positive in my posts. But what’s going on in our beloved country today makes it hard, if not impossible, to do so. Maybe Thomas Jefferson was right when he claimed that every generation needs a revolution.
“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. It is it’s natural manure.”
Is there any doubt that we have as a president a tyrant? I think not.
I’m sorry for the rant. Next time I’ll try to be more cheerful and tell you about my recently-added writing tools.
Thanks for reading.
