I love reading History. I find it more fascinating than most fiction. Although a registered Independent voter, my political and social views lean to a conservative outlook. Both major political parties are, in my opinion, totally bankrupt in ideals and intent. Both pull too far in their respective direction, and all have sold themselves to the highest bidders. A New England Yankee, I have great admiration for the founders of our nation. The early ones, Washington, Adams Jefferson and others put their lives on the line. Add Madison, Franklin and more. We are most fortunate that our Revolution/Rebellion was organized and led by educated, enlightened men (not to forget Abigail and some other uncelebrated women) who thought far into the future, and it took other men like Jackson, Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and FDR to maintain the hopes & dreams of millions. France's Revolution started well, but was taken over by lesser men, and fell into the Reign of Terror, and the Guillotine. Russia suffered Lenin & Trotsky. We were luckier! I cannot get through the day without reading the Comics. Regular comics first, then the Political 'toons. Unemployed for 35 months, I finally landed a good position with a good company! However, now I have less time to comment, (a relief to some) and less time to read other comments. Just typing out my gripes & diatribes gives me a feeling of being a little less helpless, and I feel better having said it. Sometimes I goof. I do like reading other comments: occasionally I learn something.

    Why did so many Americans get into Tik-Tok? How many social media devices does one need? A great waste of one’s wages/salary, when there are so many other traditional things to do or accomplish, and it helps widen the gap of wealth in this country from the saps to the 1%.

    Do not forget who is the driving force behind most of the republican attacks: Our VERY Wealthy Elite. The repubs take their money (as do most dems as well) and make sure regulations are relaxed or repealed, tax rate for their class get “re-adjusted” often, and our expensive military will protect their overseas holdings. As long as performing grandstanders like trump and desantis, no matter how dangerous, keep the public’s attention away from reality, the 1% don’t give a darn about the welfare of this country and continue to amass obscene fortunes at the cost to the rest of us.

    About 20 years ago, I read that the Bush family had purchased a huge acreage of rainforest in Paraguay, as an investment. A family spokesman stated that water was going to be the “new oil” in the 21st century, and the family would be ready. No wonder George W and Dick Cheney cut back on EPA funding!

    Didn’t a Supreme Court Justice once say that Freedom of Speech does not give one the right to yell “FIRE” in a crowded thearter? That’s just what the orange blob is doing again!

    Not to ALL problems, but there are a few on social media today who should not go unpunished for their crimes against this country, and to our society.
