My dear little grand son, and great grandson, I am sorry to tell you that recent events make me fear for your future. Unless you have a big win in the lottery, you are going to have less money than your parents! The reason is that our present Congress seems to think that no work at work is good! They want to get re elected, and take money from big Energy companies just to make sure that laws are not passed to benefit anybody but those big companies. The Supreme Court seems to favor these same rich corporations.
I wish that we could all just go to work and be paid for not doing anything! Wouldn’t that be fine?
The truth is, that the poorer people do have to work, and like your own daddy, they lose sleep over the job, and try to make sure that the less fortunate people get health coverage, and stay healthy so that they can do their jobs.
When the so called leaders are not held to the same standards, but can get away with being paid to not do anything, then I recommend that every one look sharp, because the only one to save yourself is yourself
To think that we as an electorate did this to ourselves! We think we have a democracy, but it is more like the mob rule of the ancient Greeks. By that I mean the modern definition of “mob”, a small group that controls society through blackmail, intimidation and chicanery. Just like we elected to Congress!
