Animals and cars:
Yep, across the USA we have Elephants and Donkeys in cars.
I am at the age where many people start showing signs of dementia. I am doing that myself. I forget incidents,
things, and plans. Of course nearly
everyone explains that away as ‘normal’ saying ‘we all forget and misplace things.
I actually KNOW THAT, but at times I ‘feel’ the difference, NO, of course I
cannot explain it.
I will say this, there
was a time in my life I was much smarter than world leaders, presidents,
congressmen and big business folks.
“HE should have done
this or that,” I would say. or
“What a stupid decision he made, an idiot would have known better.”
I can remember somethings.
I LEARNED that my decisions seldom went past, me or my family. Where someone
high profile makes decisions every day that effect/affect millions, even world
safety, war and peace.
I do remember that
I had differences with most of our countries leaders. NONE matched my ideas and
thoughts exactly. For that matter, do you know anyone that thinks exactly as
you do? Probably not.
With our sons here in the house with us for a couple weeks the TV has
been on 24/7 (nearly). I catch things (a few) on there that ‘curl my toes’,
editorials that question many major decision.
It seems to me the facts are hearsay, BENT understanding and partial
That is said with this
caveat, “It is impossible for me to ‘hear and understand’ most speakers on TV
because they seem to see who can say the most words in a minute. I get the idea
of ‘brain-washing!’ Anyone listening to the same people 24 hours a day will
bend their mindset and they will not think for themselves.”
I love this country
and believe it is the best in the world, with all its warts and imperfections.
HOWEVER I dread the upcoming 4th year voting season. WE HAVE BECOME MEAN to each other. Families
have disowned members who do not see politics as “They Should!”
I remember a time that family and friends could vote totally opposite
and still fellowship and enjoy each other.
I remember the Valdese
church dad pastored. They were divided about 50/50 Dems/GOP. They actually sat
on different sides of the church and wore ‘Ike’ and ‘Stevenson’ buttons. They all argued, talked and had fun.
I never heard a hard word, people were accepted it seemed, realizing “we all
have an opinion, but it is OURS.”
If you live in this
country we should all pull together, we are all different, but we are USA Citizens.
Every country needs unity to continue to exist.
YES THAT IS MY OPINION. I will say this, I did not vote for President
Biden, but he is MY PRESIDENT. I even agree with some of his ideas. I pray that the decisions he makes will be
best for OUR country.
PS: Note: My dad always said a minister should not show their politics, pastors should shepherd all the sheep.
ps2: I hope to be back in the groove soon.....
