What the hell is happening to our world, not just our country? Is it the result of all of the years of overindulgence, apathy, greed, and just "don't give a damn about the other guy"? Are we going to have to start over again like they did in the '30's after the Great Depression? Maybe so, since there are so many things now that would not have been possible in those days. Like a black president, cell phones, high credit debt, too large mortgages, etc. Maybe we need to go back to our roots, learn to use our hands and our brains to survive. We are a weak nation. A people used to playing video games, 700 television channels, crappy music(most remakes of old songs, can't people use their imaginations anymore to write new lyric and music?), fast food drive thrus, cars that can't be repaired at home anymore, high oil prices resulting in high everthing prices, etc. I am sick of it, and too old now to really have a chance to start over. The building industry is on the skids which means my income is half of what I need to meet my obligations. A large part of the country is going thru the same if not worse, so I guess I should not complain. But that is what this blog is all about-complaining about crap that CHAPS MY ASS!
