FOWC with Fandango — Nearly

FOWCWelcome to July 16, 2020 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “nearly.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Please check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.

    The kinds of people our culture holds up as smart are often nearly but not really.

    … What is Democracy?

    Outstanding quote: They are not that smart.

    Philosophy Tube (I don’t know he’s dressed this way. But, oh well.)

      I know why he has on a space suit. I was referring to another outfit in the video.

    This is Pelosi at probably the best I’ve seen her.

    8:00 in: We need the DPA. And …. nearly a trillion dollars for state and local government — which I remind you is one half of what they gave away in their tax break [years ago] with eighty-three percent of the benefits going to the top one percent.

    [into the Q/A section]

    21:00 in: …. if we don’t invest the money …. it will be much worse. …..

    I can’t quote the whole thing, of course.

    [I appreciated what she said about regulation and pollution and environment.]

    24:15 in: ….. 17 centuries ago, … Augustine said, “Any government that is not formed to promote justice is just a bunch of thieves.” ……. Where is justice?
