I want to write, I want to write but every time I sit down to write a blog, I have to stop and ask myself, "who am I going to offend?"
Isn't it awful that our ability to share our thoughts is now governed by what is politically correct? I am not a person that discriminates. I try and treat everyone with respect and treat them like I would want to be treated. Isn't that the "golden rule"? Why is that so hard to follow? It isn't.
However, today's mindsets are way too sensitive. I watch the news and see "normal" people out protesting things they know nothing about. I see men and women and children screaming and throwing temper tantrums. Why don't they spend that energy doing something good for someone else? They say they want to help solve problems but they really just get in the way of people actually solving problems.
If you say anything opposite of their views, they are ready to hurt you in any way they can. Makes you feel real loving towards that person, right?
Has our world gone completely crazy? Sometimes, it feels that way. It must be all the drugs that have poured into the water supply or maybe, it's the chemicals in the fish we eat today. Wait a minute, I know it must be the hormones in the milk supply. Or is it the antibiotics the chickens consume before we consume them? The FDA probably knows or the CDC. They warn us to get the flu shot every year and studies show it rarely does any good. What has happened to us?
Is it early Alzheimers, or ADHD? Conditioning training from TV, movies and video games? My, how I wish for the good ole' days before computers. We were not connected to as many people then but the ones we knew acted better. Glad I was born when the world was nicer!
