I’ve had a spell of burnout. I really had become so sick of the political scene that I sort of dropped out, refusing to read all the propaganda and BS put out by both parties. I know there are some sincere operatives out there but how do you tell them apart from the hypocrites, the money grubbers and the lunatics?
Then there has been the distraction of a spot of medical problems for both my wife and myself. These seem to have been resolved for the most part and conditions have actually shown a trend of improvement. No matter the problems that come up, there is always many things to be thankful for.
In the meantime, I am cautiously watching what our new Congress does. The first indications are not to promising though. I have taken the position of Chicken Little, if we don’t turn this thing around within the next very, very few years, I think we will lose the country for good. It will become another Greece.
