None of us can see into the future. I certainly cannot. We do however have the benefit of our years and our experience to somewhat predict what is coming down the road. From time to time I ponder what is happening and I worry about what the future holds for my kids and grandkids. As I see it now, I have some serious reservations. This column will try to offer some ponderings. I also will ask some questions. There is just so much that I don’t understand.
have watched liberalism grow over the past few years at the expense of
traditional Americanism and traditional values. I have watched as
personal responsibility seems to have disappeared. I have watched as our
great colleges and universities have despoiled the minds of our young
people and created a group of dependent slugs. These youngsters seem to
have the opinion that they are somehow owed success and a life without
stress or worry. How would they have fared crossing this great country
in the early 1800s on wagons being pulled by horses and oxen? If they
had to dig in the dirt or go hunting in the woods for their food, how
would they do? If liberalism as we know it today had existed then, would
we as a country have survived or prospered? I doubt it.
it seems that the people who live in the Northeast portion of this
country and in Washington DC believe they hold all the intelligence in
America. They think they know best. What if they had to feed themselves?
What if they had to produce their own fuel and electricity? What would
their philosophy degrees from the Ivy League schools be worth then? How
uncomfortable would they have to get before they changed their thought
another thought. How much money do you think China has spent to get the
favorable trade agreements they enjoy and to whom do you think this
money was paid?
that same line of thought, how many jobs have been and are being sent
to foreign lands because of our tax structure, regulations, and our
labor union demands? No one on earth can out produce us but we continue
to buy foreign goods because they can produce them at much cheaper
prices with much cheaper labor costs.
do we continue to re-elect the morons who have created this problem and
flourish financially at the expense of the country? When will we hold
their feet to the fire?
for some other questions. Do the jurors who found OJ Simpson and Casey
Anthony not guilty of murder ever go to their respective police
departments and ask how the search for the real killers is going? Just
would anyone ever cite as an authority a newspaper like The New York
Times on any subject? Never has a newspaper so lost its credibility as
have they. As for me, I wouldn’t wrap my dead rotting fish in that paper
for fear the fish would be contaminated by the process.
is paying to make sure MSNBC is still on the air? I think their
audience is something less that two or three hundred a night. Just
must one do in order to be put into prison for some serious time? It
seems most of the crimes being committed are being committed by frequent
fliers. We see twenty-somethings who have a felony record as long as
your leg and they are running loose to commit more crime. Many have
conviction on top of conviction and yet are on the street. Are the
judges and lawyers looking for job security? Just asking.
anybody actually watch the reality shows on TV? Now there’s a puzzle.
And who the hell is Kim Kardashian and why should I care?
Oh, and if Harry Truman was alive today do you really think he would be a Democrat?
does anybody else wonder about these and other things? There is just so
much that I do not understand. I guess the world is just passing me by.
Happy New Year.
