Personally, I have a difficult time finding even one person I like yet alone two or three.
I'm willing to accept it might be me that's hard to like but I'm over it. That said my oldest grandson jumped up on the couch the other day and he noticed his father looking, to which he said "I still love you too dad!  Then he asked me to take my teeth out and let hem hear the little jingle my hearing aid plays when I turn it on. That's what I get for being a bionic Papa I guess.  Hey, is 'pull my finger' still appropriate or is that too gauche now?

Cavemen started that.  I don't think it'll ever stop.

Unemployment rocks. 

I had four days off in a row for the first time since March. I don't want to go back to work this afternoon.

Our world must move on from the necessity of working at a job. Automation has taken over and those who have benefitted the most from it will need to pay the price of it to the masses. America demonstrates the urgency for reform in that manner more than any other country so far.

People like you have just had a taste of how life will change in the near future. Maybe many people won't want to let it go?

Others will be madly searching for employment and failing to find it. Forcing them to find something else to do with their free time.

You probably understand all that but there are more who don't as opposed to those who do.

We should all watch to see how China or the US handle the problem.

Really, we are one election away from a solution to this.

Could be that close and so that's the reason why the Conservative agenda is so dead in the water. The Cons can't accept a much bigger welfare state.

What's the future of world politics? Everybody shifts to the left?

Already our resident rightist have no real talking points to push seriously. They promoted such crap as the Fraser Institute but they're far off the map now.

Messing with our healthcare to make it two tier? Seriously?

Whoa, why??

I miss work tbh.  I only say unemployment rocks because for the sake of my sanity I had to make a choice between the kids and work (and the kids eked out a win) but holy cow I have a whole new respect for stay at home parents.

I miss talking to people who don't say 'NO' as a primary instinct for everything.  I miss having lunch with people who don't smear their food all over the table. 

I miss that feeling when I would drop off at school and daycare and get on the train and listen to my audiobooks with my cup of coffee.   

I really miss the normal life.
