    Who We Are (and Aren’t)

    By on October 11, 2021 in See It Here

    I’ve heard descriptions of our life right now as “concerning” and “divided” and too much “me vs you” instead of “us.” All are apt.

    This, of course, brings a number of observations:
    (1) If both the Republicans and Democrats are worried about the deficit, then why is there all this arguing about the deficit?
    (2) Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell doesn’t want any GOP members to vote yes to increase the debt because the Democrats are in control of both houses on Capitol Hill. Note to Mitch: The deficit was $19.9 trillion in 2017 when President Trump took office. In October 2020, the deficit was $27 billion. Anyone see a problem here?
    (3) There’s a lot of noise about mandates requiring vaccines before one can go to school or work for an airline or numerous other public places. The smallpox vaccine was required back in the 19th century. This is Number 1 in the Department of I Don’t F’ing Get It.
    I might add that department seems to be getting larger every day.
