There are so many aspects of society that I find hard to swallow. One of the top gripes I have is how people allow their offsprings to take charge instead of parents being responsible to set the basic everyday standards. For example a high schools kid agrees to help with yard work, after not showing up three times the kid feels he should be given another chance. What the hell?
I certainly would not work without payment but I have never been hungry or unable to pay my bills. For one thing I learned to live below my means so that I had have a bit of savings.
I wish for solidarity in protesting privatization, the war economy, the fouling of our air, soil and water, the war against common workers but until folks turn off the TV and begin to educate themselves nothing much will change. Soon I’ll be 74 so I have nothing left to fear.
