A couple of things that are bugging me right now [in no particular order]:
  • ANOTHER school shooting? 
  • The 7th day of rain – supposedly we will see some sun tomorrow afternoon in between showers
  • Income inequity – they keep saying the recession is over, unemployment is back down, and the economy is back on track.   Then how come I know so many people who are involuntarily retired, cannot find jobs that pay over minimum wage, and are struggling to make ends meet?
  • Why is everything that I really like to eat bad for me?
  • Partisan politics – seriously guys, stop pointing fingers at each other and figure out how to address the real problems of the country?  And by the way, it is pretty much a given that Russia influenced our election – can we just figure out how to keep it from happening again please?
  • Healthcare – the United States has the best care that money can buy.  Unfortunately 99% don’t have the wherewithal to buy it
  • Israelis VS Palestinians – well lots of things, but today?  Will someone explain to me in very simple terms how a two-state solution would work when Gazza isn’t anywhere close to the rest of the proposed Palestinian state?
  • CGI – people can be put in videos and shows when they weren’t there and made to say things they didn’t say.  How can we accept any photo/video evidence?



I’m going back to my books and 2nd life.   Catch up with you later.
