Stimulating Pork and Working Vacations


The United States Congress finally passed another COVID stimulus package. Its stated goal is to help the American people negatively impacted by the effects of the novel coronavirus. Yet when a financial aid package totals nearly $1 trillion, we whose families and friends have been hurting financially this year because of the government-mandated throttling of our livelihoods can be forgiven for balking at each man, woman, and child getting only $600 while the lion’s share of the monies go to special interests and foreign countries.

On a more personal note, I worked about 24-hours total in my first two days of Christmas vacation. It is well with my soul, and all that working gave me an opportunity to finish two books in my audiobook queue.
