2014

YEAR OF FAILURE?
YEAR OF OPPORTUNITY?

Newpaper ads scream at us:

 EBOLA,  SEXUAL ABUSES/MASSIVE KIDNAPPINGS OF CHILDREN, the rise is ISIS, OBAMA CARE, WEATHER DISASTERS….the list could go on sand on sand perhaps I haven’t touched on your pet peeve.

On the plus side they hint:

AMERICA’S ECONOMY IS BOOMING, GAS PRICES ARE DOWN,THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT IS GOING STRONG, RELATIONS BETWEEN CUBA AND THE U.S. HAVE BEEN STRENGTHENED,  SEXUAL ABUSE OF WOMEN SEEMS TO BE GAINING AN AUDIENCE, THE RGHTS OF GAY AMERICANS HAS BEEN ENHANCED DRAMATICALLY, THE WAR IN AFGHANISTAN APPEARS TO BE OVER(at least it is now theirs, to keep or to lose), AND PERHAPS WE’VE MADE GAINS ON IMMIGRATION REFORM.

HOW ABOUT 2015?

Will substanial reform come from our U.S. legislature?
Will President Obama and Congress work out and give us compromised laws?
Will we really work hard at healing the back/white divide in our country?
What about the great divide between the rich and there middle class?
Will we ever put a cap on the amount of money that can be spent in a political election?
