Another season of our Supreme Court has ended on a happy note. The National Healthcare bill has been upheld. I was shocked in that the Chief Justice joined the majority making this a split (5-4) decision. An education, again, of The People must happen. Most of “The People”, in my opinion flunked the early round. I cannot imagine why. At this point, in our history, the compromise made was necessary. Our nasty politics will get nastier. Insurance companies will get nastier. The rich will connive to get richer. Thank goodness I am no longer a twenty-something staring at the path ahead of me. I would probably, though, not change. I’d ignore, as I did, the importance of health. Social change was, and is, a concern. That simple fact will not change. Life can be made better.
One way to make better is take responsible measures to live life as one would wish to live two generations hence. Much of what we, ourselves, experience will not seem “new”, even though it is.
Many of our Friends grumble about the outsourcing of jobs to other countries. Yet, they, themselves, do not wish to pay for products made here at home. They prefer shopping at places that are known to stock products from those countries about which they complain. These “friends” are not friends of their own economy. Their ignorance of economic growth is profound. One has to spend money to make money to save money. Working is at the core. Too few of us are willing to work at bettering the self. Too, too often I hear: “I leave it in God’s hands.” How lazy is that? And, these are the same people who want government to support them, yet, they dislike government. Ignorance is a huge enemy. This coming generation will pay the piper. If acknowledgment is not in the near future, disaster is.
