It is time for another Twittering Tale. Or I might be late. Living on the “flipside” of the world continues to confuse me. These once-per-week challenges give me a chance to rant a bit about current irks and annoyances plus have fun as I interpret what I see in Kat’s pictures.

The United States has never arrived at a point where the citizens could step back, look at it, and say, “There, finished, finally, a perfect Democracy.” There has always been contention and strife in areas of religion, race, culture, gender, and wealth distribution. The search for solutions is frequently seen in the context of States Rights vs. National Rights. For example, if you purchased land and built a house near a southern border, you would not expect to step out your front door one day and be impaled on barbed wire. Under the elegant name of eminent domain, this is a possibility some could (in theory) face. They won’t face such a fate, of course. People can be moved.
