The old Chicago ‘Transit Authority’ song from 1969, “Does anybody really know what time it is, does anybody really care?” - how true those words are today in our society, especially the “does anybody really care” words. The answer to that question is a big “NO.”
Bob Tamasy, a Chattanooga Christian columnist, whom I regularly read, but do not personally know, had an interesting article last week, “Where are we going? How will we know when we are there?’ I am not sure we will ever know, according to national leaders and state leaders. Who is in charge? Who can overrule whom? I hope that most of us know the answer to those two questions, because there is only one in charge - God, and he does overrule.
I am not a Christian writer, (a Christian, I am, and I am not afraid to let you know, which scares some of my family members and lots of my friends) or actually much of a writer, period, but I do like to share my thoughts. I want to go back to my start of this piece, “does anybody actually care?”
Does anybody care that almost every product Walmart sells with a Walmart brand name is made in China? NO.
Does anybody care about the large number of American corporations (in name only) that oppose President’s Trump order about foreign visa’s for workers. YES, and why, because they would then have to hire American citizens, and that my friend, would be a crime, a crime to put American citizens to work, so the answer becomes NO.
Does anybody care that Walmart received raves for paying their workers bonus’ for working during Covid19, when they should be paying them bonus’ every year with the way Walmart abuses the America public on their ‘lower price points’ from China? NO.
Does anybody care that if school does not start this fall, a projected 25 percent of the students or more in low income and ethnic areas will never again attend a school? NO.
Does anybody care that both political parties are sending out thousands of emails, letters asking for donations when millions of American citizens are out of work? NO.
Does anybody care that you cannot trust anything you read in the paper, especially the New York Times, Washington Post, Chattanooga Times and others? NO.
Does anybody care that you cannot sing in churches? NO.
Does anybody care that thousands of American citizens live in inhumane conditions on a daily basis (I am not speaking about the homeless) and the pay a landlord to live in those conditions because they have no other choice? NO. (Unfortunately, they are paying to be ‘slaves,’ in most cases, to so-called important people in the community and even community leaders?)
Does anybody really care to hear the Truth? NO.
Does anyone care that the national suicide rate has risen dramatically during Covid19 because of becoming ‘shut ins’? NO.
Does anybody care about the radical groups that have formed in this country and the support for them from some of America’s largest corporations? NO. (In fact we endorse it.)
Does anybody really care about anything? NO.
And in closing, do I care if I offended anyone “NO, NO, not ever.”
