I’ve sworn off public politics because it seems to hard to have any dialogue (these days). But, as a parent of two millennials, I can’t help but worry about their futures and, this Thanksgiving, I want to share a short piece from a column that I found particularly relevant. A link to the entire column is after this excerpt…
Get in the Holiday Spirit and Sing-A-Long with Bruce in Part I of this series of short videos of clips from great Christmas music! Bruce is an unrepentant sing-a-long-with-the-radio sorta guy! It’s infectious so don’t hold back. JOIN IN!
It a lengthy two-part article (The Real Problem is…Part One and Part Two) I wrote last year on declining birth rates in most of the world, I predicted that China would eliminate its one-child per couple policy. They just did. It’s now a two-child policy. I went on to predict something a bit more radical as well, but we’ll get to that prediction later (which I still stand by).
I can no longer engage in political discourse. Free Speech is dead – especially on college campuses. The CNBC “Debate” (aka Debacle) was a c-change for mainstream media, but the lack of respectful dialogue on Social Media has been the c-change for me on speaking out on anything political or socially “controversial.”
Perhaps this is the perfect topic for my new focus on boomers in my writing. After all, I’m fond of saying that “pretty much, the only good thing to come from MY generation is rock ‘n’ roll.”
The other night I attended a concert at a local, wonderful venue – The Egyptian Theatre – in Park City, Utah. B.J. Thomas – 73 – was closing a three-day stint. I looked around the audience and wondered why there were so many “old people” there. Then I remembered that I was one of those “old people.” Not in spirit, certainly, but in birth date!
