September Song

SUMMER GONE, NOT YET FALL, MY NEW YEAR JUST WEEKS AWAY.

CONGRESS BACK, WHAT DOES THAT MEAN OR HOW WILL WE KNOW? ISIS, PUTIN, UKRAINE, GAZA, IRAQ, SYRIA, EBOLA, FERGUSON, IMMIGRATION, SUE THE PRESIDENT, REPEAL OBAMA-CARE, STOP SAME SEX MARRIAGE, ABORTION. ALL MAJOR ISSUES FOR GOP; PETTY DISTRACTIONS FOR ME. CHINA LOCKS UP OIL, COAL, OTHER RESOURCES ALL OVER THE WORLD, LOOKS FOR WATER TOO, RECIPROCAL TECH AGREEMENTS WITH ISRAEL, EXCHANGE STUDENT PROGRAMS; RUSSIA, TURKEY DO THE SAME. UNITED STATES? WE HAVE GRIDLOCK.

CORPORATIONS RELOCATE HEADQUARTERS TO OTHER COUNTRIES (BURGER KING LATEST) TO REDUCE AVOID TAXES WHILE W-2 WAGE EARNERS BEAR THE BRUNT OF TAX BURDEN. MINIMUM WAGE EARNERS CAN’T MAKE POVERTY LINE WITH EVEN 10 BUCKS PER HOUR BUT GOP AND CHAMBER OF CONGRESS SAY INCREASING WAGE HURTS ECONOMY.

ANOTHER SCHOOL YEAR TO BEGIN WITH AMERICA LAGGING MOST OF SCANDINAVIAN, ASIAN COUNTRIES IN MATH AND SCIENCE SCORES. NOT ENOUGH SKILLED TECH WORKERS FOR AMERICAN BUSINESS SO WE DEPEND ON FOREIGN-BORN TALENT TO COME HERE. BEST SCHOOLS IN WEALTHY, HIGH REAL ESTATE, HIGH TAX DISTRICTS WHILE MINORITIES FACE DETERIORATING SCHOOLS WITH MOSTLY INDIFFERENT TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS.

HAVING SAID ALL OF THE ABOVE, I ALWAYS RETURN TO MY WONDERFUL GIFTS: MARRIAGE SINCE 1966, TWO CHILDREN MARRIED AND DOING WELL, THREE GREAT GRANDCHILDREN, GOOD FAMILY HEALTH AND REASONABLY SECURE RETIREMENT INCOME. THUS, MY MANTRA, KNOWN TO ALL MY FRIENDS:

MY MICRO LIFE IS EXCELLENT; MACRO NOT SO HOT.
