perpetually gone right by accident. It is a sort of atheistic optimism, based on an
everlasting coincidence far more miraculous than a miracle.”

The payroll Tax Holiday should never have happened, All it accomplished was hurting workers in the long run. Now that it has expired it will hurt the worker in the short haul. unemployment bennies should't have been extended again & again because all it accomplished was making lazy folk even lazier. Also ran up insurance costs for employers furthering unemployment .The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.
It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

No matter how bad it gets there will never be a return to what the country was when it was formed or even what is was when I was much younger. The stayathomers have tilted the downhill slide to the point that it will never be leveled, much less reversed.
I pity my grandson and the life he will be forced to live because some felt the need to place themselves and their feel-goods above their country.It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
A man is but a product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes. Gandhi
