Comments About Rain's Comments

Hi Rain    Now and then I make a mistake. A couple of years ago you took issue with one of my blog notes. As I recall it involved a few things a "righty" (Greybeard?) sent to me, not something I wrote. I usually avoid comments about comments - and set the matter aside. That was my mistake. I don't remember why you got mad at Greybeard, but you said that you decided not to write about politics for a while. It sounded like you didn't want to stay in touch with me either so I dropped out of sight.  I had enjoyed our contact now and then, it was my loss.  You now have several good blogs. I still read them and wish I could write as well. Perhaps I can get back in your good graces. I hope so. 
ps: I just read one of your excellent books, "Round The Bend", and thought it was excellent. I plan to order the other three in the series.  

Take care.

They slowly became corrupt (like the Democrats) decided; "you can forever spend more than you have". They swallowed idiot pills and our entire Federal Government went wacky.  Now days the tendency is to blame President Obama for all of the ills we are facing. That's not fair or even close. He may contributed a little to the problems, but there have been many others before Mr. Obama. Where to start?
Not Long After 1776: Who first decided that we could borrow from future tax collections to finance the problems of the day.  No one seems tot know, but if the Revolutionary War was financed with money from the public treasury, that may have been the beginning. Regardless, certainly by WWI the practice was normal and approved. It had become the normal way to finance spending money we didn't have but expected sometime in the future…
