In the central states, you see a lot of sights like this—abandoned, worn-out, rusted-out farm house, as well as barns and other out buildings. While I find them photogenic, I also look upon them with a certain sense of sadness. This particular house is in the outskirts of a small burg called Jameson, Missouri.

It’s part of America we’ll never see again, as the rush to the big cities for “jobs” has left self-suffiency pretty much behind. In its place is BigCorp, which has taken over the country and the world, as well as the job market. So now, people have to kowtow to them so they can bring in an income to feed and care for their families.

As I said, it’s a sad affair. In the words of “You’re a mean one Mr. Grinch,” we read: “You’re a mean one Mr. Grinch. You really are a heel. You’re as cuddly as a cactus, And as charming as an eel.” Substitute BigCorp for Mr. Grinch and you know how I feel.
