"It's a New Year" - that's about all I can manage
I am an optimist, really, but it’s still all the same.
If anything, it’s even more amiss.
After colleges started to mandate covid booster shots for our kids (which, by the way, are still in place even when the mandates for our military has been rescinded), this was my “eyes wide open” moment of 2022:
And now this “clever” invention which could be in use by 2025?
Sorry, I cannot broadcast a disingenuous “Merry” this or “Happy” that. You may hear me say it to someone here and there, but it’s not the same. It’s pleasantries instead of really meaning it.
Is it a bad thing? No. I think it’s just being honest and not pretending that everything is alright. I’m not into it, like I used to be. I’m not content with the situation nor just letting whatever happen, happen.
Yes, I understand things may just unfold as it is written, but it does not mean I’m not part of the unfolding - my actions.
I understand the unfortunate reality of getting overtaxed, being taxed on things that I don’t want taxpayer money to be spent on, lofty compensations being earned in government, countries at odds, inflation, or even money appearing out of thin air, but things that really make me lose sleep are misleading the public and individuals, pretending you’re trying to help them, but instead using them toward your own paranoid, grandiose, self-serving goals.
I’m here because I want to figure out how to help those that got hurt and stop more people from getting hurt.
I have more ideas for posting (and other work in the making) than I can keep up with. As unmanageable as it is, I’ll still manage.
In closing, I leave you with a poem that my 7th grade English teacher, Mrs. Collins, made us all memorize:
Good better best
Never let us rest
Till our good is better
And our better is best
So, “It’s a New Year” to you and all your loved ones. Not only is it a new year, but each day, a new day.
… I think we need night and sleep … to start anew each day.
Every day, a new chance to hope for better and a new chance to do more and do better.
P.S. Don’t forget to also focus on home and your home state. More to come …
