Someone once said time is relative, and although I can't remember who said it ("I can't remember " seems to be my mantra these days) I never believed it like I am believing it now. It is the last day of May and looking back I can't seem to find the beginning of it. One third of the year is long gone and Summer looms. Okay, I meant to say blooms, but it gets so hot here that looms fits better. Gas is so high that everyone is making one trip do for six and why we don't "car pool" more is beyond me. Wasn't gas just 79 cents a gallon the other day and weren't we all talking about when we could remember gas wars and twenty cent gas? And what happened to all our brainiacs who could have come up with an alternate fuel when gas was rationed in some states...where are they now? I'm not normally paranoid nor do I subscribe to a lot of these conspiracy theories...till now. And oh yes my friends, I do believe that when you see the oil companies making billions on the backs of its customers there is thievery and deception afoot. The only part of our Government's hand I see in it is its failure to do something about it. It makes me wonder who's pocket is getting filled while ours is getting picked. I don't understand how perfectly honest men and women (or at least that's their claim when they are running for election) can become such lying crooks seemingly overnight. They all have "a perfect plan" but if it's so perfect and they love our country so much then why don't they share it with us? Why do they have to be elected to share an answer to our problems? It seems to me that Political should stand for greed and deception and our children are not safe from it's long reach. It would be nice if we had another Mr. Smith to go to Washington, or Miss Smith for that matter. But in the mean time, it flies...time that is...November will be here before we know it and if we're lucky we'll have a President who stands strong for values and his people, who doesn't let party politics become HIS politics and who will encourage our very brilliant youth to find a way to fuel a car that doesn't take anything from the earth or put anything dangerous into our atmosphere. Perhaps someone has already done so, and are being paid to keep it quiet. But wait, I did say I didn't subscribe to conspiracy theories...I just didn't say I don't believe in them.
