Time at a Standstill

TIME AT A STANDSTILL….Sometimes I feel like time has stood still for the past 30 years in the world of American politics. Conservatives are still fighting communists and the Great Society and liberals are still fighting Jim Crow and the Vietnam war. Does it feel that way to anyone else?

I don’t have any point to make, just the observation itself. I suppose someday we’ll move on, won’t we?
