it's been a crazy day!! i've been balancing so many things all at once...
there are so many things i want to talk about in this blog today
first things, first
thanks for the thoughtful responses everyone...
i did some research on the word Oligarchy
which brought me to this : Oligopoly
and HELL YES!! this is what our supposed democracy has morphed into.
now to do the research and see if any brilliant person has figured out a way to take us back to democracy... and honestly here, for my children and grandkid's sake
i hope it doesn't involve any violence as i'm so sick are tired of pain and hurting
which brings me to my next thought
last night, i was remembering Vietnam war - see, i was in high school and college during that era
and i vividly remember the guys coming back from the war and the ones that weren't maimed
were mentally wounded
and according to everything i have been reading -- they still are
so we need to add to that list of problems that this Iraq war is creating -- the mentally wounded
and not only the American mentally wounded but the World mentally wounded
all those young men and women who fight wars for whatever country, religion or state
that end up physically ok, as we look at them and would never know, that their minds are damaged by what they do and see - the violence
how can we possibly rid our world of violence until we rid our minds of it??
and for something completely different : Another Reason WalMart sucks!
