The Cubs win the World Series and Donald Trump becomes our next president. If we believe that all things happen in 3s, I can't even imagine what will happen next unless UFOs suddenly land on the Mall in Washington DC and a giant tin man named Gort comes out followed by a humanoid who looks surprisingly like movie actor, Michael Rennie. If this happens, I'll try and remember those famous words, "Klaatu barada nikto."
All kidding aside, we've had our share of excitement, for some of us good and for some of us not so good. Now it's time for us here in the States to buckle down and get back to work. We need to work hard to bring this country together. You notice that I didn't say back together. We never have and never will all agree on anything and that's ok. I know that we all have our differences but we need to remember that we also have a lot of common ground. We all want what is good for the country and to continue being blessed with its vast resources. And, if we're not happy with the way those resources are parceled out, we have the opportunity to use our vote to voice our opinion.
The news media and the entertainers who we financially support to entertain us, not to give us their political opinions, have caused more trouble than they are collectively worth. If a few singers and actors want to leave us and call another country their home, let them. They may come to realize that other places have such things as immigration laws which may be a lot stiffer than ours. Who knows, maybe they'll be rejected! They might want to look at tax laws as well. Maybe this is not such as bad place to live in after all!
We've had a few days to gnash our teeth or gloat. Let's move on. The world isn't going to end, at least I hope not, but why waste part of our relatively short existence on this planet fighting each other. I'm not naive enough to say something like "lets all work together" but you get my point. Let's try to stop attacking each other and instead try to respect each other's differences. If you've got a gripe, talk about it, complain to someone who can do something about it. Throwing tantrums and rioting will get you nowhere. Act like adults!
This country and its laws are for all its citizens, regardless of race, creed or political beliefs, and yet we're all aware that inequality exists. Whoever said that Life is fair lied. But rather than passing more legislation that will be ignored by those who disagree, why not look within ourselves to perhaps see each other's point of view and think about it rather than react to it. We all learned in Biology class that even one-cell organisms react to most stimuli without the ability to think.. Having a few more cells and a brain, I hope we can do better.
Let us open Channel D and sing Hallelujah!
