Planes are flying low today in the light breeze. No toxic chemicals being sprayed (yet) but that will come soon in the form of cotton defoliant. Not much rain either, which is sort of ironic considering how Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi almost drowned today. My preferred news source is doing a series about the issues in this election that are not being addressed during the campaign. They are important building block sorts of questions that should be addressed before the decision is made as to which direction this country needs to go. I don't claim to have all the answers, unlike some folks who just can't agree to disagree and move onto business. The most important, I believe, is how the entire political machine in this country is fed by lobbies and corporate deals. Oh, and then there's that term limit thing. Hey..teachers rarely get tenure anymore so why should you? The choice of who should be in charge of our country is a right that generations have fought and died for and the whole thing has turned into a big money grubbin' clusterf**ck. Simplicity is the key. The basic programs that were put in place to take care of our citizens have been abused for years by those who know how to work the system to feed their addictions. I work full time at a not minimum wage job so I don't qualify for anything. Neither does my daughter who is shall we say "underemployed" for a BSW.
All of that being said, things are rather quiet on the grands front as far as I know. Mama sort of rambles and talks in code when I call but I don't dare show up unexpectedly because
The closer I get to the grave, the more I believe that Big Ernie knows the heart and intention of every soul and understands that we're not perfect. It's the ones that don't try that really piss him off as well as the ones who are not sharing what he has blessed them with. The fork in the road is quite clear. Let's just pray that justice prevails and we get the honest days' pay back within reach. Otherwise we'll have to call John Cusack to find out what the plan is for 2013.
Love ya. Mean it ^j^
