With an approaching 70 years on this earth (next January), perhaps I could offer a more longitudinal perspective than many on where our country has come from.
As I have mentioned on a few posts over the last year, the illustration of the frog-in-the-pot has great relevance as we look at where we find ourselves today, while facing an uncertain future. As a quick synopsis, if one puts a frog in boiling water, he will immediately jump out. However, if one puts the same frog in a pot of luke-warm water, while slowly turning up the heat, he will not realize the trouble he is in until it is too late. I would offer the points below from that perspective and without comment.
Are we building a better country/world for the next generation? A Fox News poll from August of this year suggests the majority of Americans (70%) believe “life will be worse for the next generation than it is today”. That is up 29 points from just two years ago.
