I’m taking a break at summer end from some writing before zeroing in after Labor Day on the need to restore the American conscience–starting with each one of us. We can’t even vote right in November without an awakened conscience.
This week I ran across a good article on a pagan religion to which we just threw $369 billion dollars–foolishly named the “Inflation Reduction Act.” Let’s call it a “tithe” to what many of our leaders profess to worship.
Though this is a mundane political year around the United States, October is still a month to focus on candidates and issues for upcoming November elections.
Our local ballot is small but filled with names that have an “R” or a “D” behind them.
The “D” once stood for a Democratic Party which championed democracy, the working class, and personal responsibility (remember JFK).
Not in 2021. Here’s what the “D” now stands for behind a candidate’s name.
The second decade of the 21st century has begun and it’s easy to play off the number “2020.” For most of my life my vision was 20/800, corrected only by contact lenses. Since having cataract surgery, I can see “20/20” without help.
I’m also trying to spiritually glimpse what is in store for the planet in 2020 and beyond, and will do my best today to share what I “see.”
Here’s my view of the world in the year of our Lord 2020.
