I have to start posting from my phone or I might as well give up the blog. As smart as my phone is, it is still a drag to type on the tiny keyboard. Worse to not see the whole paragraph at once. Anyway.
With the wealth of kooky behavior we are privileged to witness here in the USA, there is almost too much to comment on. I casually mentioned the 31st attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act to a co-worker and she replied that she doesn’t follow politics. I can almost understand not talking about politics, but how do you “not follow” current events. Perhaps she prefers to follow Katie and Tom or the Kardashians.
I now know that my phone can guess that I am typing Kardashians. And that may be the problem in a nutshell. Or in an autocorrect.
I don’t know why I continue to be surprised when I meet folks who are not engaged in current events. Life is hard, escapism is all around us, and politics, even at the local level is complex and murky. Maybe I am the one on the wrong track. It would seem that something as impactful as the ACA would rise to a certain level of conciousness even for the most oblivious Americans. But then again there’s no requirement that citizens have any political knowledge if they are born here.
Now that’s time management American style – I don’t have to pay attention and you can’t make me. An American anthem.
