04/13/2021 In the US our basic nature is that of an independent people. We are innovators who do things independently instead of following someone else. This country started out like that when the Puritans left Europe because they didn't want the Church of England telling them how to worship their God. Next, the "Commoners" in … Continue reading What’s good is bad, What’s bad is good:
02/16/2021 We've seen and experienced a significant change in American society in the US over the past 12 years.
