I wrote the first blog entry on January 31, 2008. It was titled, “Fix the Problem, Don’t Fix the Blame”. Still relative today. Politicians and the media are adept at pointing out who caused problems but inapt at fixing the problem.

In the early years it was an entry a day. Until November 2012 when Obama won the second term. I was going to throw in the towel, but readers encouraged me to keep it going but at a pace less than one a day. I did at an average of 10-12 a month until lately. In the past few years, I began to Tweet. I have accumulated a far bigger following there with 21,500 followers. I used those tweets to test what the entries here should be.

My interest in blogging initially was a concern that my grandkids would live in a country that was contracting. They would be the first generation in this country to have a lower standard of living than their parents. That the American Dream was gone forever. When Trump was elected President that seemed less of a probability. He was turning it for the better. But his personality made him too big a target for the media that cares not about the state of the country but only the political choice. Trump could not comport himself in a mature manner. His nicknames and nasty attacks turned people off. The media magnified those and never gave him credit for his huge successes and voters went with the media. So, we got Biden.

In a mere two years Biden has set about ensuring my initial concern in 2008 would happen. My remaining years will not change much for me. But the grandkids will bear the brunt of where the country is headed. The litmus test was the Tuesday election. Seventy five percent of all polls show the public believes the country is headed in the wrong direction but there was no red wave. Democrats voted for Democrats and Independents split and fewer Republicans could make any difference. States like Ilinois have become one party states forever. As millions of new Democrat voters cross the border every year soon the country will be a one-party country. That’s the plan and its working.

Illinois is losing population and businesses and some day will be unable to fulfill the promises made to public retirees and with other unpayable social programs. What then? The same with California and New York. The illegals pouring across our border add to that. When more states become Illinois and few are Florida, the house of cards tumbles.

For me, it’s Fetterman. When a state like Pennsylvania can elect a man to the US Senate who has never had a job, is a trust fund man supported by his parents, who wants to empty the jails and make America Cuba, it’s over.

Not my job to try to fix. I don’t have the time or energy. The job falls to my kids to get it turned around for their kids. It’s so far out of control it will take years and more courage than I see the next generation having to fix it. When Dr. Seuss goes out of the schools and gay porn goes in, someone other than Ron DeSantis better go fix a school board.

With that it’s time to say goodbye. Some of you have been with me from the beginning. Some recently. You have kept me at the keyboard, and I can’t thank you enough. As a friend my age told me this week, “my dad said the country is going to hell in a handbasket and that was 60 years ago and it hasn’t, so maybe there’s hope.” I pray there is. Goodbye and the best to everyone who has ever read this blog.
