There seems to be a never ending amount of "bad things" and it can be overwhelming can't it? Of course I am not suggesting we all disregard all the negative and tragic acts but simply suggest we tweak our minds to a better place. No drugs necessary.
I guess I am also saying "let's get back to reality" and stop all this ridiculous "political correctness" crap that seems to be the norm in the "first world" countries. PC is masking reality in my view. It also allows bad behavior to prosper since "judging" is now a bad thing to the PC police. Of course the PC crowd is all about judging, but it only allows their judging. Everyone else is forbidden to judge as the PC crowd will call them names. Racist, xenophobe, sexist, whatever. The only judgments that are allowed by the PC crowd is against white males. You know, those fair skinned people originally from Europe.
We see the idiocy of PC all around us. The TV shows and the news and paper news outlets have done a 1984 on us. We have allowed this to take place by not pushing these idiots back. We live our lives and leave the non-work, non-family issues to the "experts" and the politicians to deal with the rest. Unfortunately, those entities think we don't care so they unleashed themselves on to the world and manufacture issues and outcomes we never even thought existed.
Illegal aliens is a accurate term which apparently offends the Associated Press and other news sources. So they call these people who are sneaking into America, "undocumented immigrants". They think by saying it over and over that Americans will believe it! But we don't. Since we are a nation of laws, we know when someone breaks the laws they are criminals! Not "undocumented immigrants". Actually, they are a "invading force" in my view. Look at Europe today as a prime example of an invasion of foreign illegals! Since the politicians yap about a border fence, incessantly and never do diddly about it, why believe them? Hell, most of the poor from south of the border see we are just yapping so they come in by the millions! Build the damn fence and start tomorrow!
These people may have their reasons for sneaking in of course, but do we want America to be transformed into a Spanish speaking country? What about our values? Should we not tell those that want to come here to do so within our laws, culture and rules? Why are we such wimps? I accept people from countries that are political refugees, but even that has to have high standards before we admit them. I like Mexican food but I am not interested in making America a Mexican satellite. Rather I want these people that are here legally to assimilate into my culture. And the PC crowd can move to Mexico and experience it first hand as a Mexican citizen. However they will find the Mexicans don't want them. I say we should adopt Mexico's laws regarding immigration. Wouldn't that frost the knobs of the liberals. No more voters.
One and a half years until the national elections. What are we doing? My goodness, let's do what the British do and allow only the two months before election for campaigning. This constant campaigning is ridiculous. Good theater of course but it also keeps the airwaves filled with BS and acrimony. Americans, well most of them I am guessing, want the peaceful life. It is hard to achieve when all the oxygen is taken by all the hot air sucked up by politicians and government. Don't worry, be happy seems to be the most that people want. If in doubt watch and listen to the "man on the street" interview many "news" organizations do. Most people are tuned out of the day to day scene. They want a good toke and a clean needle or glass of JB.
We who are activists in politics are the bellwether types. Staying informed, trying to keep the facts straight. We on the right side of the political spectrum want this PC stuff curtailed. We do our best to keep the language from morphing into a liberal wet dream. The change of a word or phrase means the original was not working for the left so maybe this new one will. Global warming is the best example. The left changed it into "climate change" which I think did us on the right a favor. People have been dumbed down by our public education system but they are still smart enough to know the weather changes minute by minute. Can't fool my lying eyes.
Yes the world is in flux all the time and some of that is very, very bad. Terrorists blow themselves to smithereens. Nutballs in our own country kill people in movie theaters, schools and now on the streets of Fisherman's Wharf. A beautiful and innocent 24 year old news gal is murdered by a black homosexual in Virginia and then he commits suicide. Please, if you want to kill yourself, do it and leave the rest of us alone. You will get your judgement in the afterlife. But stop murdering the innocent people. And you liberals and apologists for the killers need to shut up about "mental illness". In my view these people need to be judged for their deeds and not their mental state. If anyone needs to be off the streets it is these people claiming mental illness as a reason for bad behavior and lawlessness. Keep them in jail!
With all the problems of the earth and its inhabitants they all pale to the ultimate outcome of annihilation. Asteroids! My oh my, if you watch cable TV, all the science shows and NatGeo and many independent shows are all about Armageddon! I feel really bad for the young of the planet as their elders do all these doomsday shows about the very existence of earth! Could this negativity spill into acts of violence and murder? Do the Jihadi's care? I think we need to start having disclaimers on a lot of the doomsday tripe spewed by Hollywood and TV and tell the viewers this is just a movie. Can you imagine a five year old kid being forced to watch "An Inconvenient Truth"? What a terrible message! And propaganda as well. Why create these visions of destruction in the minds of our young? The Arabs do this in their schools and we sure don't like that. Yet we allow this in ours!
America has been the last best hope for the planet. Whether it is freedom, jobs, education, laws, fairness and opportunity, there has never been a better place. That is why we have to tell those that want to screw it up to sit down and shut up. We must meet these dooms dayers at every turn. We need people with backbones who are not afraid to take the crapola flung at them by the left. Over time we can bring America back from the abyss of liberalism and make the country the last best place once again.
