Post #53 Thursday, March 11th, 2021
Today our new President signed his Covid Relief bill —-that made it through Congress in Biden’s first fifty days in office! Seventy percent of the voting public were anticipating the bill with high hopes for the country getting back to “better.” And although I’ve said I would try not to talk politics, I have to say it boggles my mind to see that not a single republican voted to pass this important bill—- despite what their constituents want. It feels like there is a lot of “ meanness” and revenge, a lot of vindictiveness operating among our republican representatives.
I think I have just the remedy! We need troubadours!! How ‘ bout if we had some men and women circulating in Congress…in the rotunda, in the halls, outside offices, outside on the steps beside the soldiers and security people…Singing a song! Of course, I have just the song. I wrote it myself. In 2007, for our Peace Chick offering I designed a little card with the lyrics, a picture of a guitar, and glued a guitar pick to the front. We urged our friends and loved ones to Pick Peace. Here’s my song. (Can anyone out there compose a tune for it??) Actually, it would work as rap also. Ready? Hit it!
Ciao for now! Patty ✌️?
