As I nervously await my first social security check, hoping that all of us retirees haven't been flim flammed out of our benefits, I reflect on what brought us to this. And just who can we trust anyway. I know I didn't vote for any of the scoundrels that have so far been exposed. I just wonder why any one did. Was it the fake "holier than thou" Christian thing with a little white is right racism on the side. Was it being convinced that good old George was the kind of guy they would like for a beer drinking buddy. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. There are so many cautions out there for not doing the same stupid thing twice. Duh! Voter fraud may account for part of it, but some people actually admit to have voted for the failed administration a second time. I'm just saying...??? There has never been a time in my life when the world has been
in as big a mess as it is now. We taxpayers in this beautiful country have been robbed and hoodwinked. Our natural resources continue to be raped and squandered. All the checks and balances, rules and regulations and trust that we thought were in place to protect us are just gone. They have disipated into ignored and inoperative relics of not so long ago. All the safe havens of religion, education, and respectable behavior in a respectable society are getting lost in the greedfest.
But a new year is at hand and we have elected a new world leader who's demeanor and character appears beyond reproach. Dear God help us. We can only hope!
