Its amazing just how shallow our margin of safety is in this world. Everything we know and trust can disappear in seconds. For example we depend upon our jobs to buy all of the things we need; our food, our transportation, our homes, our clothes and comforts. It can all be gone in a heartbeat. It sometimes doesn’t seem fair, but we Americans have been pretty lucky. The things we have taken for granted all of our lives are only things to be dreamed of in some of the other parts of the world. We have always thought that we here in America are special or smarter because we have more. The truth of the matter is, our country hasn’t been settled nearly as long and the ravages of the human race hasn’t had time to take as much of a toll on our resources. We are using them up at an alarming rate and it will catch up with us, but maybe not. It seems that our crooked lawmakers are going to do us in first.
Hopefully someday we will get rid of the political crooks and ambulance chasing lawyers that drive up the price of everything, and take advantage of we the working people. Hopefully someday we can get our country back to normal. It’s doubtful, but I can at least hope. I can’t understand how anyone can put a price on their honesty, to the point that they are willing to annihilate their own country and countrymen in return for material things that will be gone in a few years anyway. If caught they will be despised by generations to come, even their own families. Hey crooked politicians, is getting rich really worth selling out your country? Life is short, but disgrace lasts forever.
