What Will The 2020s Look Like?

Is there a Civil War that the GOP is waging for their version of America? Is it a “take no prisoners” time for them? Are they that panicked? They literally put all their eggs in one basket and that basket was rejected. Why would they do that? I think I have an answer to that. […]

For The Times, They Are A Changin…

I can see in the not too distant future a revolution coming that will make what us Baby Boomers created seem minuscule in comparison. Yeah, we had our days but now we seem to be more a source of the problems than solutions. Just look at our “Senators and Congressmen” who are stifling any possible […]

In To The Looking Glass – 2021-2035

I did some looking-forward in the last Looking Glass post in order to guess what the coming six months will look like. But this is the first post to go full-forward in that regard. Being the amateur futurist that I am I can see lots of changes during this fourteen-year period. Since I am also […]

How The World Will Change…

Let’s face it, the world is on a tightrope right now. The current pandemic will likely cause changes even faster than before, and it will now happen on a very broad scale. That is what this post is all about.

Imagining The Next Decade

Thanks to Frank Diana over at Reimagining The Future I am putting on my dreamer’s hat for this post. I really think, or at least pray, that once that despicable person leaves the Oval Office, we will go on to make our future bright indeed. That is what this post is all about.

Understanding MAGA – Chapter 72

I have been diligently trying to understand the rationale that some folks have in praising Trump. One of those efforts was to read a book entitled In Defense Of Elitism by Joel Stein. The author was recently interviewed on the PBS Newshour of which I am a regular viewer. Some points I gleaned from the […]

Who Needs Social Media?

Obviously the question in the title above is what this post is all about. Here is the definition of social media from Wikipedia. The biggies are obviouslly Facebook,Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, with many other a little further down the line.

One Small Thought…

Sometimes I get into dry spells here at RJsCorner where I just can’t think of something for my daily posts. When that occurs I usually pull up a quote that strikes me from my list at iHearts143Quotes.com. That is the case for today’s post. I am certainly one to embrace change and loathe boredom, but […]

More Myths Americans Need to Unlearn About America

Let’s face it, we can’t simply ignore the problems and hope they go away. That seems to have worked for a long time but in reality, it has just allowed the problems to fester and get worse.  America is collapsing and if we don’t do something about it soon, it just may be too late. […]

Time Just Flies By

I don’t know how many times I have heard the expression in the title of this post. I don’t know how many times I have said it myself. I have always wondered why time seems to fly by now but in my youth a year seemed like an eternity.  It wasn’t until I got a […]

While I Cherish Change…

If you have been around RJsCorner I’m sure you know by now that I cherish change. Change allows us to do things better than before. It allows us a second or maybe third chance to get it right. But not all change is good, even for me. 🙂 At least to some degree, I believe […]

You Are Not A Tree…

Too many of us lament that we can’t get jobs where we were born and raised. That seems especially true of the poorest areas of the country including Appalachia. Jobs just aren’t very plentiful there. The deep South is another example.  It would be nice is all areas of the country were full of gainful […]

My Life Sucks…

I think there is a pretty fair part of the folks in this country who think their life sucks. They haven’t had a raise in umpteen years. They have to have someone to blame and that person is often those they see as getting the “breaks” in life. It’s pretty hard for them to admit that […]

For Good Men To Do Nothing..

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. Edmund Burke   I don’t necessarily call, at least yet, our current times evil but none the less the Edmund Burke quote above applies to where we are as a country. Too many of us decided to sit out […]

Making Sense of Change…

When I came across the quote above I knew nothing of Alan W. Watts.  But, as usual I got on Wiki to learn more. This guy was quite a character in life.  It just seemed that once he was doing something for any extended period of time he got bored with it an moved on […]

Some Resist Change; Some Embrace It….

“Quite frankly, a lot of it has to do with the strength of the Apple brand and how much merchants and customers love how easy the experience is. I’m not saying it’s changing the landscape overnight.

I Can't Do It For Them….

This is going to be an extremely soul-searching post for me. It has been a week since the GOP route in the mid-term elections and I have been thinking about my philosophical and political leanings. Two things seem now apparent to me that were not so just a few short months ago. The first epiphany  is that I […]

A Change In Direction…

I have not looked at any politics of the day for more than a week now. I have even reconfigured my daily internet reading to remove politics as a point of focus. That alone has helped to significantly brighten my general attitude toward daily living.  To complete this refocus I have decided to take the blog […]

The American Dream… Revisited….

I am going to tell you up front that this post is a little whacky but then again that is the type of person I am.   I am always asking questions as to why things are the way they are. This idea is a paradigm shift that very likely will never happen. The twentieth […]

The U.S. Postal Service Nears Collapse – BusinessWeek

Source: The U.S. Postal Service Nears Collapse – BusinessWeek. Too bad the person who wrote this article didn’t snail mail it to everyone. It is seven pages long so it would have brought in big bucks to the USPS. 🙂 Seriously though (at least as serious as I get on this blog) the postal service is […]
