Funny how nothing is so blind as our own mirror.  I have been railing against the concept that we force more babies to be born at the same time we are cutting services to them. (Of course, most of them will be persons of color, so more servants?)  And at a time of increased automation?  Oh well, apparently we won’t be around for the climate denouement.


I just realized that cutting funds for training staff in group homes for the intellectually disabled  includes cutting training, staff (and wages) for staff in the gradual closing of long term care for the severely disabled.  One of my kneejerk responses is, “Oh well, not likely they’ll live to find a cure for cancer.”  Sigh.


Then I realized (the mirror part) that under my own nose the quality of care available to my significantly disabled youngest daughter has degenerated.  No one’s to blame except those robbing Peter to pay this Paul and that one and that one, too….That Christian nationalist and that conservative, and that….too.







  • To rob Peter to pay Paul“,[1] or other versions that have developed over the centuries such as “to borrow from Peter to pay Paul“, and “to unclothe Peter to clothe Paul“,[2][3] are phrases meaning to take from one person or thing to give to another, especially when it results in the elimination of one debt by incurring another.[4]
