I thought this digital periodical should be the opposite of the ‘political theater’ version gracing my website. The focus here will be what America can accomplish with a political system pushing her to do better on behalf of all her citizens. In that spirit I will make this version an upbeat idea filled publication for the ages…
Now to the scolding which I try to keep at a minimum. This is President Biden’s economic plan. It is not Senators Joe Manchin’s or Kyrsten Sinema’s economic plan. Here we go again with one or two people trying to decide what’s going to happen for the leader at the top. Do us all a favor Senators. When you’re the President of the United States and can sign legislation into law then you can decide what can or cannot happen. Until then let us see what you two are holding up, or better yet what’s possible.
We have an interstate highway system. How come we don’t have an Interstate Water
System? Face it with the droughts happening more frequently and existing water systems not even close to doing the job. We need to think big. I heard once that Israel desalinates most of their water supply. Our crops and the food supply will not last without an adequate water supply. Other nations are already suffering in our hemisphere.
I heard there are many ships waiting to be off loaded on each coast. Why don’t we have the Commerce Department working closely with our businesses? Why? Because we believe a political ideology that says government should stay out of the business sector? Small government seems to be flat footed, or I may be drawing the wrong conclusion. Take gun. Shoot self in foot (metaphorically please).
Transportation. Why do we still have to wait for a call from our loved ones traveling across our country or around the world? Why is there not a system that immediately tells us when an airplane, train, ship, bus, or ship arrives? For that, why isn’t there a video recorder/feed inside these forms of transportation that allows family to keep tabs on their loved ones? Instead of everybody piling on Facebook or Twitter about the foolishness that abounds on their platforms. How about using these mediums like a ‘Face alert’ or a ‘Tweet alert’ about something good happening in the neighborhoods of their users.
Infrastructure. Where do I start? I can’t recall the number of times I’ve been stuck behind a pile up or a road under construction. Navigation systems? I have to grade them a D-. What are we waiting on in the halls of Congress? Am I the only one aware besides the Biden Administration and those members of Congress that see the need is urgent and the lead time to construct new roads, bridges, airports, railways takes years if not decades? Stop acting like you’re the one at the top. If your name is not President Biden, then get on board and propel this country forward. Time’s a wasting!
Sorry about this, but I have to address ‘Critical Race Theory’ and the ignorant reactions to it. First for all the white people that obviously received and ‘F’ in American History, or it was an elective, and they chose a course in ‘righteous indignation’ containing very little about righteousness. Let’s see that ‘righteous’ document the U. S. Constitution contained language describing a Black human being as three fifths a white human being. Black people being enslaved. Black people killed for no other reason than for ‘shits and giggles’.
Oh, I got one. Black peoples’ wages withheld for over two hundred years. Boy, I would like to see that dollar figure! A Civil War was fought to get past at least the slavery part of American history. Black water fountain versus a white water fountain. Black people sit at the back of the bus. Poll taxes. Guessing how many jellybeans in a jar. Segregation, oh that one is making a comeback. Redlining is the practice of restricting areas of a city to keep housing in that area exclusively white. Discrimination on the basis of race, religion, sex. Oh my gosh this is ridiculous.
Can a ‘God’ fearing Christian truly say with a straight face that ‘training up a child in the way he should go and when he gets old he will not depart from it’. Newsflash. Bringing someone up in the shadow of evil doesn’t make that scripture a lie. Good or Evil works both ways or to the unlearned both instances are true. So white women, stop getting up in front of school board meetings and embarrassing yourselves. Yeah, like it or not this time of racial reckoning in America is ordained. It will not pass until the truth is fully laid out for all to see. Wipe those crocodile tears off your face cause you look stupid.
We need business and governments at all levels to work to unleash America. All this stupid gamesmanship about the debt or the debt ceiling when it’s not even the Republicans or the Democrats money they’re playing with. It’s America’s money. If the Republicans want to play games with America’s future send their butts home and stop electing them to Federal, State or any office!
Oh my God. We could have a 50, 60 or 70 trillion gross domestic product if we bring to bear all elements of our country. I mean all of it. Every citizen or noncitizen being valued and supported by every good and precious means available to help America break through! Oh, and the signs should read ‘STOP THE STUPIDITY’.
