2. Why are we not hearing more from the media about this?

Democracy is being fought for in the streets of Hong Kong. The story is becoming a side bar due to this ridiculous administration’s scandal after scandal soaking up the ink.

I recently had a yearly checkup with a doctor who was originally from Greenland. He said the same problems exist there as well. The money is flowing to the top, income inequality is more prevalent now than ever before, and right wing extremists are crawling out from the sewers where they once have hidden.

All of this is happening on a worldwide scale while we sit back fat, dumb and happy. By the time we lose it all, we’ll never get it back, and, we will have no one to blame but ourselves. Quote after quote from those in our past sound the alarms, or at the very least, should grab our attention. If it’s even possible to quell this rancid mentality, it will be many years of pain before we see “better days” if in fact we ever do.

Good luck to us all. Get out there and do something!
