One would think, wouldn't they, that after being put in jail I would find a way to curtail the way this world confuses me. Yet, I find myself, after the jail experience, not less confused, but more so. Really confused.
So, I did the American thing, I went to get involved in our government -- they say, "Be The Change," and that one can never be a part of the solution if not involved in the problem, right? So I decided, the problem wasn't me, it was my government that put me in jail.
So, the problem lies there and I should begin to get involved, again. And, they record everything on video at Los Angeles City Council -- have you watched it lately? The way they run their meetings are confusing at best, not straight forward at all, and transparency doesn't seem to be a hallmark of that body of government.
So, to follow along with the dialog I shared with them, one should listen to the whole thing, and envision on Tuesday outside the City Hall sanitation trucks and other huge trucks like that circling the building with their horns blaring!!!
I realize that my issue just seems so small in comparison, yet, somehow, I know its important because the Masons and folks like that take things like the Red Rope really, really seriously. I just wish I remembered what it all meant. I DO know, what it means in my own head as I voiced to that body of government, I really think that The Red Rope is something that has no place in our government "of the people, by the people and for the people." So, PLEASE, tell me if I'm just having another blonde moment or whether this is a real issue that I should continue to address with the City Council.
