The world has changed! At least for me.
I was up at 6 yesterday morning. Did my research for the blog. Went to begin the blog at 8. No wi-fi. No TV, no land line also.
Called Comcast. Everything will be working at 11:18 said the recorded message. Came noon and still nothing. New recorded message said 11:30 in the evening.
I learned yesterday I cannot live without the internet. I needed to pound the keys to get the blog out. Then research into the afternoon re other matters. I was a druggie in withdrawal.
The Comcast problem is the reason there was no blog yesterday.
Two days of thoughts to share.
Syracuse got their asses whipped by Virginia tuesday night. Syracuse has lost its last 3 or 4 games. This keeps up and Syracuse will not even get into the NIT.
Yesterday’s Citizens’ Voice brought Forrest Gump to mind. His famous line…..Stupid is as stupid does.
The people of Florida have the fourth weakest credit in the United States. Key West rents are off the wall. Unaffordable for many. Three and four workers required to share an apartment.
Yesterday, Trump once again proved he is all heart. The billionaire President has started the process whereby States will be allowed to impose a work requirement on their Medicaid programs. To qualify, a person must prove he/she is working, training for a job, or volunteering. Exempted are the medically frail (whatever that means) and pregnant women.
Which brings me back to Forrest Gump and stupid is as stupid does.
Most of the Key West workers live pay check to pay check. They voted for Trump because he was going to make their lives better. Thus far he has not. Nothing has changed.
They still love Trump, however. Give him time, the Democrats are screwing him up, etc.
Stupid is as stupid does.
Let me go another step forward. Jared Kushner, son in law to the President, is a special adviser to the President. Sits at his right hand in the White House.
Kushner’s other life had him involved in real estate.
A federal position as Kushner has requires that his position not be used for personal gain.
Kushner accompanied Trump on Trump’s first visit to Israel. Kushner’s White House responsibility involves U.S.-Middle East policy. Which includes Israel.
Just before Kushner left on the trip, a major financial Israeli investment firm invested $30 million in Kushner’s real estate company.
The rich get richer, the poor poorer.
And yet, many Key West workers continue to have faith that Trump is Moses. He will lead them to the better life. Not going to happen. Stupid is as stupid does.
Two important events to report.
Ladies, January is Cervical Health Awareness Month. Get checked! If you do not have a physician, Womankind will help.
My love of history will be satiated later this month. 1776 opens January 23 at the Waterfront Playhouse.
Enjoy your day!
