Views of a conservative lady on current issues in USA.

Mind Set 

Subba Rao 

“I live north of Pittsburg, my husband and I were retired 

recently,” said graceful looking lady sitting next to the Juggernaut in 

the flight to St. Louis. 

“I see.” 

“I am visiting my daughter in Omaha; her husband is a senior 

executive at a large food processing company.” 

“That's good.” 

“My other daughter lives in upper New York, she is an attorney.” 


“One of my two sons graduated from Wharton and works in 


“Wow,” “The other son?” 

“He is an Asst. DA in Pittsburg.” 

“Very successful family.” 

“We are blessed.” 

“True, in deed.” 

“We gave two years and he failed, no second chance for him, he 

has to go.” 



“I see.” 

“The unemployment is still high and at unacceptable 

level,” “the housing fore-closure crisis is still continuing,” “the two 

wars are still being fought,” “the National debt is still hovering well 

over 15 trillion,” “the budget deficit is still at unacceptable 

level,” “40% of students fail to graduate from High Schools and 60% 

fail to graduate from colleges.”  “American industry is still investing 

in foreign countries,” “China and India are still stealing jobs from 

us,” “Obamacare is nothing but socialized medicine we don't 

want,” “Middle East is still in turmoil,” “experts say the unfunded 

liabilities could reach 75 trillion in not too far distant future and 

the dollar will sink to the bottom.” “Obama promised  to solve all 

these  and he failed, we have to vote him out.” 

“The plane landed in St. Louis.” 

“Juggernaut got up from a momentary nap and noticed the 

sophisticated woman sitting next got up and getting ready to leave.” 

“So what is the immediate pressing problem the country is 

facing now?” 

“Illegal immigration and gay marriage rights,” she said, 

leaving in a hurry to catch a connecting flight and didn't even say 

good bye before leaving.” 

“I am not sure you know,” murmured Juggernaut, his voice was 

drowned in the noise.
