Much like the cat in the picture, I admit to being surprised. Never thought we’d live to see such a dramatic change in our great country. And anyone old enough to remember knows what we’re talking about. For those who don’t, we’ll try to explain.
One of the big differences is that nobody else cared about which party you voted for on election day. We were not calling the other political party Nazis, white supremacists’, or other names. It felt like we were a more polite society. Some would say polite is other word for giving in, but it is not. Common curtesy should make a comeback.
Things said back then, that wouldn’t get a raised eyebrow at the time, are now the cause of the surge in adult coloring books and safe spaces. People said what they thought even if it wasn’t what you wanted to hear. And nobody got offended or demanded money for nothing. If anyone did get offended, they got over it and life went on.
Now we’ve heard the government wants access to our bank account information. Being silly, government wants to know of any transactions over $600. Sadly, the only reason for this is to tax us more then we are now. A more simple solution to the deficit is that the government have a balanced budget every year and doesn’t spend more than they have.
We don’t know the solution nor where the country we grew up in went, but we do know we’d like it back.
