BRUCE A. BRENNAN BLOG FROM THE WORLD AND MY MIND
The news as I see it and the views as I want them.
I have named every National Day we have, according to my research. We have others that double-up on days but that would be information overload. The National Days line is being retired.
Speaking of retirement, I am retiring this column. I have posted it daily for two years although I missed a few days, less than fifteen. It is time to move on.
I am working on three novels at the present time. I am going to devote more time to those projects. Once finished, my literary library of works written will include six novels. I have several other outlines in development. I will have more than enough to do without this daily blog.
I am still a practicing lawyer always on the lookout for new clients and business. Keep me in mind if you need legal help.
I will post an occasional column as the news and political climate dictate; at least that is my plan. Plans change as we weave through life, however.
I have enjoyed writing this blog. I usually feel good after unloading my heart with my cynical, sometimes controversial viewpoints. I, as most of us, recognize the problems this country faces. I have a few ideas to correct a few of the problems but not all. The problems are easier to see and talk about than they are to fix. Brighter men and women than me have tried and have failed but they have tried. I would enjoy a crack at politics but I carry too much baggage to try.
This country has to realize that in a democracy the majority rules. Those in the minority have to accept that premise. Not everyone can have everything. Our society must reward hard work, ingenuity, chance-taking, investment into new ideas and concepts and success. Our government, disguised as Robin Hood, must cease robbing the rich to give to the poor. It is high time we end government handouts regardless of the circumstances. Unemployment, Social Security and Medicare are not handouts; people worked and paid for these benefits.
I could go on but that would end up as another column than begs for a retort. It would defeat my retirement plan. I will just shut up.
Just a couple of thoughts I had and you should too or at least think about.
