It has been a while since I last posted anything. The usual suspects have gotten in the way; life, busyness, other aspects of internet life...and a little thing called Second Life has taken up a bit of my time.
Since then other things have happened, my youngest has gone to college, and become a vocal performance major, my oldest has graduated from college, we went to her graduation last weekend. That is mind boggling, having a child that is a college graduate...where did the time go? It is truly surreal.
In the past few years, I have abandoned church, mostly because I thought I was too dysfunctional to keep doing it properly, so the blame is on me, not them, but I can see problems. Anyways. I have kept an ear to conservative talk-radio and have tried to keep an open mind, remembering that they too have an agenda. In most cases I would say it makes more sense then the opposition.
Since leaving church, I thought I have looked at life objectively. From my observation it seems that political things have gotten more intense, more almost desperate. Like they've painted themselves into a corner and are fighting about how to get out of it, when there is no way out.
We've painted ourselves into a corner with issues like, abortion, gay-rights, immigration, and the national debt. And there are more issues that I can think of right, actually, almost everything is an issue that our congressman and senators take opposite sides with and make hay.
Conspiracy theorists are saying that things are really taking a turn for the worst. It's a geo-political financial cabal that is in control and exerting itself to make the world the way they want it. It's vague, but there might be something to it, I don't know for sure.
I hear the news and some talk-radio and I wonder if our government is screwing us up on purpose or do they think we can actually get out of this financial mess we are in. Our debt is staggering, basically, I think we're broke, a lot of the states are. I don't know everything, but I don't see how this is going to end well. Should we start preparing for the unthinkable?
