Again, unfortunately the people of america have to be ruled by fear. The president saying that if he doesn't get his way the earth will implode and lava will boil up from beneath us and the four horsemen of the apocalypse will ride across the land. Governing by fear. Learn it. All good tyrants and dictators do it and ours is no different. Now is the time for change. Let it default and lets rebuild. Don't be afraid. Our elected are running a failed business that is quite simply........out of money. I am sorry Washington you wasted it all with your hopes of utopic entitlement from the never ending pot of pure monetary bliss. I do not feel sorry for you, for you fail and fail again and again again and aren't held responsible. Grandama predicted the day it would all fall apart. "I've lived a long time, long enough to see that where they are headed is complete failure" she told me over boiled bacon and rye bread. Grams always told me "the hard working people will always find a way, a way to freedom, a way to a better life, a way to fulfill your dreams and goals. Fancy slogans and appealing lies don't solve problems. Hard work solves problems. I feel sorry that we couldn't have put better people in charge for you, you the ones who will have to fight to get the country back from the corrupted sleaze."
Now here we are, 21 years later from that conversation and I think about how right she was and it makes me miss her so much more.
