The ongoing saga…
The Great – We can breathe the wonderful Fall air for a day before starting a new election cycle…
The Good – In my last blog, I noted that I couldn’t think of anything “Good” so I asked my readers to send me their thoughts. Here are a couple of responses:
- “I am heartened by the younger generation who will, I fervently hope, make the needed cultural, social, and economic changes – unless they too become seduced by power and privilege. Sadly, our generation has failed in spite of “the summer of love”, etc.
- “Things that are good: 1) Scrapping the TPP, 2) A $1 trillion infrastructure plan, 3) Guaranteed paid leave; and, 4) Laws to encourage women in STEM
The Bad – The divisiveness of American politics. Thank goodness, the mid-term elections are over but, then again, the next Presidential election cycle starts next week…argh!!
The Ugly – How many shootings does it take before we put in place some common sense gun laws for all Americans? Check out the most recent Gallup Poll. It shows that two issues: background checks and evaluating those who might be a threat are overwhelmingly support by the American public. So, why not just those two?
The ongoing saga…
The Great – The mid-term elections are now only 26 days away. Then, a couple of days of reprieve before we head into the next election cycle ☹.
The Good – Hmmm…if you have thoughts – send them!
The Bad – There is so much “bad” going on that it’s difficult to come up with a singular “bad” issue. However, the 13,000 children who came to the United States on their own and which are held in federally contracted shelters is the worst of the worse. There are now five times more children in immigrant shelters than in 2017.
The Ugly – The entire Kavanaugh hearing saga is replete with ugly issues on both sides of the aisle.
