OUR GREAT NATION - FROM PROACTIVE TO REACTIVE

WHO'S REALLY TO BLAME HERE? 

Is it safe to come out yet? Is everybody done bitching about America going in the toilet? Can we all just get along during the downward spiral of our country? As with all things in life acceptance is hard...just try dealing with cancer! Cancer has given me a greater understanding and appreciation of life and what is really important. Sometimes I wish everyone would be close to death at least once in their life to gain this understanding. I think we as a planet would be better for it.

 The people spoke last night and many feel they will lose because of it, but again that's what makes this country so great…the majority rules. I disagree with the whole Electoral College crap. I think it should be a popular vote. We can thank our founding fathers for that. But, we have the ability to change that and never have.

 What has always puzzled me about human nature is that we tend to blame others when things go wrong in our lives. I guess it's easier that way, but not very productive. This country was founded by a people of hard work ethics and religion. We are no longer a proactive people, but reactive. Today we have morphed into a bunch of lazy ass people who worry more about their morning latte than they do about the homeless guy on the corner!

 Frankly it's not just our politics that are f*cked up, it's how we treat each other and the lack of getting involved. I'm curious to know how many who read this are active in city government? How many were out donating their time to their candidate that they believed in? Who of you has addressed congress to evoke any type of change for a worthy cause that benefits "others" and not just yourself? When was the last time you said, "Neighbor if you need help, call me and I will lend a hand." or stop when you see and elderly person to help them with a task?

 It's not just our government. The problem is much deeper, but it's easier to blame someone else right? The writing has been on the wall for a long time. We used to be a country willing to fight for our rights and work hard to be a strong nation....now all we do is bitch at each other when shit goes wrong. Not very productive and it doesn't help make a country stronger, it just spreads dissension among the people.

 You want change? Get off your f*cking asses and create it like our forefathers! Run for office, work for your local governments, your city councils, volunteer at a homeless shelter, and show that you are "involved" in this country rather than sipping coffee, in your cozy living room, chatting and bitching on Facebook. It's time people. The shits getting deep! Stand up and take "action" get involved not just bitch about it!

 OK I've said my peace. I'm sure I'll get blasted here because it seems it's what most do best nowadays, so I'll come back when the smoke clears.

 Peace B

WITH THAT SAID, WHERE ARE YOU NOW?THE WAY YOU TRAVEL HERE AND THERE YOU NEED TO BUY YOURSELF A PLANE.I'M SO GLAD THE VOTING IS OVER. I HATED ALL THE CALLS ON THE PHONE. IT SHOULD BE OUTLAWED. I HAVE A FRIEND THAT ALMOST 90 AND LIVES WITH PAIN. SHE'S ALL ALONE AND 90%BEDRIDDEN. SHE HAS TO TAKE PAIN MEDS AND SHE WOULD JUST GET TO SLEEP AND THE PHONE WOULD RING. THIS WENT ON ALL DAY LONG. SAME HERE UNTIL I THOUGHT I'D GO NUTS.
WE DIDN'T REALLY HAVE ANYONE RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT THAT I LIKED SO IT WAS THE BETTER OF TWO EVILS. I WAS GOING TO WRITE IN A NAME BUT WHAT GOOD WOULD THAT DO. THANK GOD I'M ON MY WAY OUT. I FEEL FOR THE CHILDREN OF THE WORLD. THESE ARE MY THOUGHTS.GRAMPS AND I WERE GIVERS ALL OUR LIFE, NOT TAKERS.I DON'T LIKE GIVING TO THE TAKERS THAT CAN WORK AND TAKE CARE OF THERE OWN . THE ONES THAT SIP THE BOOZE AND SMOKE THEIR CIGS. TAKE, TAKE, TAKE. I'M SICK OF IT. ENOUGH SAID, BEFORE I GET INTO TROUBLE.
