Yeah, I am way off balance. Nothing seems to work right. Maybe I am just old?
My family members who are older than me tell me, no, it's not age related. There's something happening. The ones who lived through the Great
Depression say, it was worse when I was a kid, but, yet, something about this seems worse. There's something that is not right here,now. There's
something out of balance here. The old folks I talk to say that suddenly there was a world war, and the men were taken and the women got jobs, and
life became a bit better, yeah there was rationing, but somehow it all became better.
So what do we need to do? Have a massive war? Put everyone to work who isn't in the war and all will be well?
I was a busboy during the late 60's and early 70's, and while I waited on tables, I heard lots of conversations by people who claimed the
Viet Nam War was the best thing going. It created jobs and got rid of the undesirables. The Economy Demands War to Grow for the Betterment of
Everyone Who isn't Affected Personally By the War. This is tired # to my ears.
