ALL THINGS MUST PASS
- MB is off work today and I took the car to Brunswick to do some needed errands. Along the way I listened to right-wing talk radio (there is no middle-of-the-road or left-wing talk radio here) and Glenn Beck was mocking Earth Day. I felt sad that he is so disconnected from our spinning orb we call home. Some get it and some don't..... how could it be?
- While listening I heard a political radio advertisement speaking to women. The ad was saying that raising the minimum wage in Maine would badly hurt women - thus avoid at all costs! This ad was paid for by......
- Glenn Beck was also interviewing a religious leader about how to successfully raise children. The man was saying that we have to teach our kids to work (which I am not opposed to doing) and then went on to say that we have to teach them that with their money they are in fact "managing $$$ for the lord".... and what would the lord have us do with our money? Buy guns and warships or feed the poor?
- My horoscope today suggests that I not deal with money matters nor try to do anything that takes much thought. Instead it suggests I should do something physical such as picking up fallen branches in the yard. They make good kindling in the winter.
