Folks…what’s goin’ on in America today…in the world?

Do you get answers readin’ lots of printed daily “news” and “analysis” reportin’?  Or watchin’ endless yip-yappin’ tv/info/political shows?  How about the many internet information (“ii”) offerin’s?   Many of us now have ‘xtra time to flip around and get “informed”, huh?

What’s goin’ on in America today?  Well sit back folks, we’re gonna try to give you the answer that ain’t gonna set that well…perhaps why it’s usually avoided?  Please keep in mind that this ain’t the first time homo sapiens have dealt with change – a bit different each time – doesn’t make it easier.

In America the number one form of Øchange is a democrat party seekin’/holdin’ on to the old ways of doin’ things even though many of us now do things in new ways.  2nd, large religious groups run mostly by men repeatedly doin’ things the old way – yeah, we know, that one ain’t gonna go over well with them.   History based ways of gettin’/not gettin’ things done – changed – fill the books – usually in “damagin’” ways.   Then we get to the tough aspect of what we are talking about – what does this “change” in so many ways mean for the many in various forms of power, delivery, financing?  Yes, we mean established governments and supporters historically rejectin’ change.   Our one word answer…


America has two political parties – one simply opposes most forms of basic change – the other a bit more welcomin’ of it for reasons that simply have to do with self independence; some historic awareness; some acceptance…and benefits.  Unfortunately, they also go along with DEBT because it doesn’t destroy immediately.

Change is a real stinker when it gets to our homes – our neighborhoods.  This old guy knows because he is livin’ in it; strugglin’ with it.   Many cities, counties and states; school districts, postal service, public transportation, highways and many other forms of governmental “needs” – are seldom open to change.   Folks we are livin’ it now – all around us – goin’ on 24/7.

So what the heck should I/we do to survive…along with our few needs including those who need us?   We've got one example – not working out very well; but they’re facing it – our founders flushed ‘em a while ago – Great Britain.   A few years ago, by a tiny narrow margin, their citizens said to the large group (EU) surrounding them – we’re gonna give this a run on our own.   They said – bye bye germany...us Brit’s learned a while ago we simply need to do a few things on our own; hopefully with a few good tough allies.

Folks we’re closing in on our 500 word limit – enough for this offering.   The change we are living in this minute ain’t gonna go away – many of us will vote to avoid it – and the other party that seems to want to deal with it?   It’s gonna be tough for them.  And for us, we the people, come November 3.  We’ll see…not lookin’ good folks.

“Free the Big Ten”

Well folks this fortunate not so young fella does not always agree much less support the coach of the football team from the university at which he did a few things over several years including gaining some real as well as college based education.

Nevertheless he sure agrees with the four words above…

“Free the Big Ten”….let's offer them a bit more impressively…

“Free the Big Ten”

Folks this getting’ old fella grew up in a time when the world faced some issues a tad more significant than overpaid football coaches – endless tv advertising in between the occasional play – and some of the really low iq nonanalytical POOPsters yappin’ in between the above.  But, college football sure beats the pants off overpaid nonproductive nincomPOOPs (435/100/9/1+++000,000’s) trying to buy our votes come early November.

Heck this guy would rather watch the buckeyes beat his wolverines (I really don’t mean that) and be encouraged to buy this or that over and over again each quarter…it's pretty basic (aka fundamental) here’s the article… https://www.freep.com/story/sports/college/university-michigan/wolverines/2020/09/05/michigan-football-protest-big-ten-postponement/5730504002/
