After a few years away, the pen is back. So Susan from Phoenix and hopefully Max and LG and everyone that used to chime in...including Chuck...we now have a place to once again say hello and opine. We had a huge group once and now we are starting up again!
Here is a post from today:
It is indeed a crazy time. So much going on...my timelines and e-mails and texts filled with so many opinions and "facts". Who the heck knows what the Republicans are doing right now and the Dems are also a bit of a mess. So many issues right now on both sides of the aisle. I do know this....my friends who supported Hillary are not corrupt, or blinded. My friends who support Trump are not stupid and uneducated. Until both sides see that....we will continue to wallow in this massive divide. As for me...I don't know what the heck to think. I just know our foreign policy is and has been rough. I know that terrorism has increased and so has the threat of terrorism and yet another attack on our own land. I know that race relations are a complete mess and filled with a ton of misunderstanding. I know that government on all levels is a bit out of control and taxes are pretty high on a small number of Americans...while those at the very top have loopholes and others at lower levels don't have one dollar invested. We are a country that wants things immediately, yet we are complacent on many levels. Even with all this, there is no place I'd rather be, or live. Nobody does more to help people and provide opportunity than the U.S. Not sure how we right these faults....not sure how to fill the divide. Not sure who will emerge to right the ship. To think only one party...one person...is the cause of this...is more than foolish. It really needs to start with us. We need to demand better, expect better and also ourselves do better...in all things and at all levels.
