The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly

September 19th, 2017 | No comments

The ongoing saga…

The Good – The coming together we are experiencing across the nation in support of the victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma – and, possibly others down the road.  Bad events bring together good people.  

The Bad – Even though it is a bit of a hassle, I’ve become a big fan of recycling over the last bunch of years.  In Kittery, we have to place all of our recycling items “in their proper bins” or the recycle managers get after you!  But, recycling still remains too low.  For example, on plastic – Europeans recycle 30%; the Chinese, 25%; and, the Americans, only a mere 9%.  Come on, folks – get with it!  Help ole’ Mother Earth and the environment out…

The Really Bad – In the first 200 days of 2017, USA gun deaths were up 12% over 2016 or, 8,539 deaths (excluding suicides). Firearm injuries were up 8% or, 17,043.  And, the number of children shot by a gun increased 16% to 394.  What’s it take?

The Internationally Bad – The ups and downs of policy coming from the current Administration.  One minute the USA is headed in this direction.  The next morning through yet another Tweet, the USA is headed in a different direction.  It may work in business but, such approach to policy reduces our collective credibility to zero in the international community… 

The Ugly – According to CBS News, there are 30 million jobs in the USA that pay more than $35,000/year for those workers who do not have a four-year college degree.  However, there are 75 million workers in the USA without four-year college degrees.  The gap is far too large!  And, I bet (but, do not know) that most of those workers in the gap reside in the non-urban areas of the USA that have seen the slowest recovery since The Great Recession.  It’s part of the inequality gap that exists in the USA.
