You gotta love this Rock TRUCK (Borrowed from Connie Walls):
Now for today..
I am a believer, the USA is the greatest country in this world. I think folks born in Canada, the UK, Ireland, and Germany etc feel the same. BUT this is me. And for me it is the USA.
Politics, LOL! Funny but serious. Our election was held, The ‘Electoral College' has said that Mr. Biden will be our next president. I didn’t vote for him, but HE WILL BE MY PRESIDENT. WE had many high profile people, say at the last election: “If Trump becomes president I will leave this country!” (Did they?) Some held signs “Trump is NOT my president,” at inauguration time but he was.
BUT despite that……………… Politics continued.
As a kid I heard “If Ike becomes president, Expect WWIII, ALL HE KNOWS is WAR!
Down south I heard: “If JFK gets in office the USA will be run by the Vatican.”
I heard it very LOUDLY said with disgust, “REAGAN? Yeah that is all we need is an ACTING PRESIDENT!” We have different voices in this country. Thank God we have the right of FREE SPEECH.
I once had a revelation, delivered to me while razing an old house. Using my sledge I smashed into a plaster wall. There in the wall were preserved 1940s newspapers. I had to look at them. Until then I had the impression that everyone loved FDR. HA! BUT in those papers there were Nasty letters to the editor saying how terrible FDR was. He should be impeached! WHAT? That is impossible…… J. Everybody loved the guy. LOL
This election time was NOT TERRIBLE, it was a bump in the road, A BIG ONE, but a bump. WWII, Korea, Vietnam, all wars ARE TERRIBLE. The UNCIVIL WAR was the worst, neighbor against neighbor, surely no one wants that. BECAUSE more AMERICANS died at that time, than in any other war.
We are too diverse for EVERYONE to love any president. My hope is for a statesman that can draw us a little more together. HOPEFULLY it won’t take another 9/11 or Pearl Harbor. ;-( I honestly hope Biden can do it, if not I will still have HOPE!
There is always ‘next time’, another election in 4 years. We need to remember we are NEIGHBORS! We are not ENEMIES just because we have different beliefs, faiths and ideas.
