I used to think there was a problem here in the U.S..
One day I set forth to see what the problem was in 2004. First, I wanted to see how George Dubya Bush could have possibly become president when he
didn't actually win the election for sure in 2000, because no re-count was performed. I lived in Florida for ten years and the reason became clear. I
stop there because I don't want to offend a bunch of thin skinned Floridians too much. Wait, can't be done. They're just offended and fearful when
they rise from their slumber in the morning....Cuz they sleep with their TV on...
Lived among the fearful and over-reactive for a long time, but the nice weather there made up for having to be constantly concerned about thin skinned
people going all road rage ranger constantly, for little or no reason. Learned to ride my bicycle very fast and very defensively and keep in mind my
bicycle would fit where cars would not and saved myself several times, I even got shot at once....
Got used to living among the fearful and ignorant for a long time and tired of it, was beginning to wonder about how I could shake the reflexive
defensive thinking and general fearfulness of the world outside the door. I went on an epic bicycle ride to visit relatives in Wisconsin in the summer
of 2011 as I had been laid off from work in 2008 and was unable to find another job.
I saved butt-loads of money while I was working in Florida, and rode my bicycle everywhere and saved me the grief of overpaying to drive around, and
in turn was in really good physical condition...
Being away from the constant bombardment of "News" as it is referred to took a bit of getting used to, but it was nice to be free of it after a few
days on the road. Better things to focus on, like not getting run over by a car or truck...
...Anyway, what I was working toward saying is that y'all are suffering from serious a case of "information over-load"...
Just because there is a computer there on the desk, or a TV over there on the table, doesn't mean you have to turn the thing on. Open your windows and
listen to the wind instead of listening to the radio on your way to work.
The wind has good things to say, People don't.
There isn't anything wrong here, and what little is wrong is that people steer their energies toward fixing negative things, and in feeding their
energies toward the negative they feed the negative.
I'm going to go outside and focus my telescope on a family of red foxes out by the river now, maybe get my camera mount to work well enough and share
a good image of some critters who have a perfect understanding of what it important.
