"The problem with living in this day and age is people always wanting to try and tell everybody else what to do. "
absolutely!! the main problem and it is frustrating the crap out of me that others can't see this. i am not proposing that my ideals be forced onto
the lot of you, but rather that your ideals and the ideals of those who are benefitting off the money that "I" work hard for, well, i want all these
ideals that are NOT mine to quit being forced onto me. it is unfair and i am sick w/ worry for the ideals that are and will be forced on my kids now
and when they are older.
YOU ALL (meaning those who are mocking) may very well be fine w/ blindly accepting what is being imposed on us, but when it comes to an ideal you
don't agree w/ being imposed on you, will you still be singing the same "we are lucky compared to *fill in the blank*" tune? i am starting to fear
the answer to this could be yes.
at this point it is reminding me of that movie 'i am legend' (which i didn't enjoy so much, but all of a sudden, i am seeing a similarity) where
the "zombie" dude is throwing himself into the glass repeatedly and "the savior" will smith
is dumbfounded bc he is holding the cure in his
hand. it is mind boggling to me and i feel a relation to that character at this point, not in holding a cure, but in saying that WE NEED A CURE.
BUT now it is becoming overwhelmingly obvious the reason we aren't finding a cure is because the majority don't want a cure... and apparently
majority rules. sure, i could move, but again, i can't financially bc i am paying all my $$ out to a war i don't support, welfare that supports
other ppl who won't get their own job, insurance companies that i don't need and won't need in the future if i were allowed to keep my earnings,
and a prison system that is locking up ppl for things that should be left up to their own discretion, AND ON AND ON AND ON.
i don't want to go anyway. i want to be part of the solution this country so desperately needs because i love the ppl around me who live here..
but too many of its citizens are throwing themselves up against this glass repeatedly making it impossible to come to any real solution for how to fix
this problem, we as a nation are in.
"Go and ask a Guatemalan dirt farmer how his life is treating him, if you can find one with access to a telephone that is. If you think your life is
tough and unfair, try walking a mile in someone elses shoes for a day and see how you like it. "
so, what...... i should shut my mouth and close my eyes to the fact that we are very much headed down the path that will lead us to the same
conditions all because right now i am comfortable ?(hello, remember, i have kids futures' in my hands)
well, some of you very well may be living comfortable, and i'll concur that i definately am more comfortable than that farmer, but i don't want to
wait until i am in the same conditions as that dirt farmer when it will be harder to do something about it. i want to help stop this train from
derailing while there is still a chance.
still, this is only part of the issue. there is a war going on in the name of the country i reside in that most outside of this country know is bogus
and if our nation's name is tarnished, that automatically drags everyone of our names down in the mud as well bc we are a part of this nation.
ugh!! forget it! i could go on and on, but except for a few, who are also having to try and get ppl to see before a solution can be brought forth, i
feel like it is pointless
please, sorry to disturb. you may now continue w/ your self destructive acceptance.
