Happy Easter! It’s been a long winter and I’ve gone through a lot of ups and downs, but I’m finally getting a sense that just maybe I’ve turned the corner. Or to put it another way, I’m a lot more optimistic these days.
That being the case, I’m going to pay a little more attention to the good old GMC. It will take a while to get back to where it was, but I am determined to do my best to make it an informative and entertaining destination.
I’ve also decided to venture into areas I’ve neglected during the dozen or so years I’ve been doing this. For example, I’ve always tried to avoid talking politics on the GMC. I knew everybody had their own positions so I never felt the need to put my own out there. That is no longer the case.
Folks, we’re at a crisis point and it’s just getting worse. I might not be around that many more years but I shudder to think that my kids and grandkids might have to live in a country defined by that thug in the white house and his group of sycophants and enablers. It’s time to do something about it.
So – like many people – I’ve been looking for alternatives. The Democrats seem to have countless choices, including old pros that probably shouldn’t be running and others who jump from one trendy cause to another. So when I first began hearing about Pete Buttigieg, I thought is he kidding? The 37 year old mayor of a small Indiana city would be the last person you’d think of in the White House. But I figured anyone would be an improvement over the current Bozo so I began looking a little deeper.
Peter Buttigieg (boot-edge-edge) is a Harvard grad, a Rhodes scholar, an Afgan veteran, speaks eight languages, and has eight years of governmental experience. (Compared to zero years for the current president.) He’s even a classically trained pianist.
But even more importantly, he speaks clearly and intelligently about the issues that matter. He has real ideas, not just a lot of double-talk.
I’m on board, even though I realize he’s a long shot. If you’re interested, here’s his website: http://peteforamerica.com
