AUGUST AIN'T SO BAD AFTER ALL.
But the early morning vapors rise from the surfaces of our lakes here in Wisconsin.
Does it mean for Americans that we shall for decades be dependent on foreign oil to the future death of our free market and capitalist economy?
In a non-idealist world do we really express our golbial idealisms by being at war in places like Afghanistan and Iraq? Will Tibet be next, or will it be Iran?
Our foreign policies over the past 20 years have got us into a right mess.
What are we doing in Afghanistan and Iraq? What has our presence there got to do with us here at home? Seven years of talk justifying the war, wasted life and treasure.
Communities of the past embodied an economic “survival coefficient.”
That meant that most of the people who lived in the community worked there, making their own products and making a living there. Their lives and survival were dependent on the community.
I've heard some elderly say that they live day-by-day.
What does this mean?
Political parties attract people of similar views and political interests. Party makes a difference. Our current political conventions prove that.
I had three brothers whom I loved dearly. We were split equally, two Republicans and two Democrats. We kept up with most political issues because we held strong opinions and had to defend our beliefs. No holds barred.
