A CENTURY OF DISARRAY

This OPED from the NYT's is a must read.  The OPED focuses in on the 21st century and no one person or Party.  I like the fact that if the author is accurate he is honest in depicting that the economy grew a lot slower under President Obama, than during the last century.  But note the economy still underwent a major recovery from the Bush II years.

I do not like when all millennials are depicted as the same.  I have a grand nephew who will graduate high school this year who works his butt off, and has taken advantage of all the high tech educational opportunities NY offers its students, while most of his friends just glided through school.  My point is, some millennials are working hard to be successful.Some are not.

This is a must read  from the NYT.  I quote only one part which stood out for me as to what we need to do to fix a problem created my both Parties and people of all backgrounds and ages,

" The Eberstadt piece confirms one thought: The central task for many of us now is not to resist Donald Trump. He’ll seal his own fate. It’s to figure out how to replace him — how to respond to the slow growth and social disaffection that gave rise to him with some radically different policy mix."

What I like about this is, it is time to stop whining about Trump and look for solutions.  People voted for him for a reason.  So now it is time to address the valid complaints and look for policies which we can bring forward with new leadership, even if it means a new political Party, which is what I favor.
