ON THE BACK BURNER

Feb. 24


I ramble a little but I have this on my mind, a lot. I try to be sympathetic to people who I think might not be very smart. But I sometimes ask myself a few questions. I don't get answers. Just a stomach ache. Some of the questions that I have asked , over the years, is how did my neighbor who worked in construction get enough money for such a nice car. We drove a second hand, full of rust ,sedan. I never got an answer, but I think credit might have something to do with it. Then a question that I sometimes asked myself and got no answer for is, how did some of my neighbors at our small Michigan lake cottage , retire from General Motors and Ford production lines, with such a nice pension. We didn't have that safety net . Then later I asked the question of how can someone who is Jewish, run a nursing home and get convicted for fraud and other unJewish behavior. I still read things like this in the paper and when I see this kind of an article, I cringe to see if the fraud is mentioned as being Jewish. Now I ask how can our leaders be so greedy, so one dimensional, so stupid.They are led by a guy with no morals. He is dumb, dumber, dumbest. I am not sure that he can read. And they so want to join him, that they almost genuflect. If they opposed him during the election, they now want to join him(Romney, for one). I guess they see that anyone can be President. Our leader talks with five maybe 6 letter words. Some have only three. "sad, nice man,guns, smart,good looking(two more letters), big , crowds,pussy, friend, fake, wall. I am very discouraged. But I do like the week end when he goes ballistic with Twitter. He upsets me so much that I have an exit plan that I am reluctant to take. I love it here. How many elections would it take to clean out Congress, our local government, to clean out candidates who are taking an advertising approach that won the election for the last fool.I'm 83, I pass the baton to the kids. I think they might have the key. Passion, internet savvy, youth, energy, idealism, not many people have told them that they can't do something. We are the elephants in the room. We need your help, kids.
