I am getting worn down by all this dark political stuff around lately. It just never seems to end. I simply can’t fathom how almost half of us have so little empathy for those on the margins of our society. Why do they so fervently want to take food out of their mouths and block them from getting affordable healthcare? It seems that some will go to any extreme to make those things happen. A few months ago when I was in a similar depressed mode I vowed to keep on going so I could, in a small way, prevent the wing-nuts from taking over our country. Even that pledge is wearing on me right now.
While not giving up the fight, at least I don’t think I am, I need to step back a little from the insanity of our current political environment. I need a time away from it to concentrate on the brighter sides of life.
With that in mind you might see some changes coming to RJ’s Corner in the near future. I will also likely be spending less time here and more over at my new “In Search Of America” blog getting ready to bring that one on-line. It will do my spirits good to look back to see how we became a great nation instead of looking forward to see where we seem to be headed.
I am not giving up the fight, I am just giving myself a breather. Don’t really know how this is going to work out yet. It is a work in progress.
