Made the mistake of posting on Facebook a Bernie Sanders quote about hungry children in this country and the size of the elite's fortune. Honestly, I hadn't even noticed that it was something pushing Mr. Sanders. It was the sentiment regarding us as a society and our obligation to take care of the ones who need us that I was trying to promote.
Well, you would have thought that I had unleashed the socialist dogs on this grand country. God bless America! Let those starving infants pull themselves up by their bootstraps, or bootiestraps, like good ole Donald Trump did! Like the Koch brothers did. Like those patriotic Waltons did.
At first I began replying as fast as my short, stubby fingers could type.
Then I remembered three years back. Then seven. There are compassionate folks among us and there are the others. Preaching to those others continues the divide and feeds nobody.
Use your love wisely. Every now and then you may turn over a table or two in the temple but you don't have to make a habit of it.
