Our "Bubble-wrap" Society's Expectations?

As published in the May 11th, 2017 edition of the "Herald-Mail" daily newspaper, this is my reaction to the "Feedback" column whimpering of yet another over entitled "Bubble-wrap Baby", who wants our elected leaders to pass a law requiring all of us to wear reflective clothing at night:


“Reading Gary Bloom’s demand for our government to mandate what clothes we wear at night, made me much more than just mildly nauseated. Good grief.”

"Of Mice & Men" (and also Women)

The "Mouseland" fable originally was written in the 1940's by Clarence Gillis, and then later narrated by the late Tommy Douglas and therein made into a slide show presentation.

It was in the late 1960's when I first saw a film of the slide show version, when I was a political science undergraduate student at Frostburg State College in Western Maryland.

It since then has been remade into an animated video version.

Regardless of the politics and nationality of Tommy Douglas, Mouseland's message rises above fractious political partisanship, both then and now, with a cry for each and every one of us to stand up and be responsible for our own liberty and freedom of choice.

Click here to watch the video, and decide for yourself if these principles make as much sense to you as they do for me.

Also, pass this along to all of your friends, family, and associates by clicking on the envelope icon at the end of this entry.

Regardless of where you live, do your part to support the quest for "Jobs & Prosperity", "Personal Liberty & Family Values", and "Returning Government Back to the People".

May God bless you all real good!
