Listening to every heart
I've missed reading your poetry. But on to the topic:
I believe I heard repeated today that Obama does not "listen to the polls, they mean nothing." I found that quite interesting. It's like the cat is in the bag, tied up, and nearly near the water's end.
I am having a problem with that kind of attitude.
To me, it's not positive. It's egotistic.
And yes, I've voted early, because it became an option that I could use in my discretion. BUT, as I have told a friend, "I voted a split ticket" because it's not all about the White House. There has to be a even balance; there has to be voice on "all" sides.
As most of elder PiP members might know, I dislike discordance. So you may all dismiss this note, that's just fine with me.
But for those of you who might believe in a tolerant nation with rules, regs and order: we must come together to weather not only the economy, but certain ruin if we cannot work together to be one Nation again. America is a belief that so many of our younger people take as granted; and we of "my" generation have allowed them to do just that.
Be ready to prepare gardens and raise your own food, people. Bartering could soon become the master of the US economy. I do not mean to place a dire notion into what might be; but I listened well to the woman who said a year before she died, "we're going to see another depression."
We tried to tell her she was wrong; but it seems we were wrong; I mean, after all, with a mere 99 years under her skirts, she truly knew her history!
So many of our children won't even know how to bake, let alone break, bread.
