Well, it has been a while since I sat down at a computer and put my thoughts out for the world to read. Maybe that is a good thing because some of my thoughts haven’t been that nice. I mentioned before that I am a “Wrassin” fan and WWE Superstar Randy Orton has the perfect themes song for this day and time, “I Hear Voices”! These voices have been very loud lately and frankly, they make a lost of sense but, I try and keep them to myself. I have always heard that you should never talk about religion or politics if you want to maintain any type of civility in the conversation but, turn on your tv or computer and that is all you see, ESPECIALLY politics! It seems everyday there is some crisis that either the left is blaming the right for or vice versa. If you are honest with yourself, and most people I know are, you can place fault for what is going on in our country on both sides. Just think about it for a minute, whether you are left wing or right wing, one thing is for sure, both sides come from the same damn bird! (Some of you really need to read that last line twice!)
Remember when you were younger and you had a disagreement with one of your friends? You may argue, you may even get physical but, after it was all said and done, you were still friends. Today it is much different. I have seen life long friendships dissolve because one liked this and the other didn’t. Isn’t that sad?? And thanks to social media, everybody knows about it! When did it become ok to publicly trash somebody because they don’t think like you do? Why has social media been allowed to become such a forum for hate? Maybe the question is, why did WE allow it to become this?
Maybe I am alone on this but, I joined social media sites such as Facebook, to keep up with my friends and family that I don’t see everyday. I really enjoy seeing pictures of all my friends, their children and their lives. I’d like to think that those very same friends enjoy seeing what is going on in my world. Sadly, it is becoming more and more a platform for one side or the other to force their opinions on you. When I turn on Facebook every morning, more times than not, the first thing I see is a political post of some sort. Today’s poison is how the left is hell bent on impeaching Trump ASAP! Their reasoning? He incited a riot last week at the Capitol Building. I am not arguing that he did, not arguing that he didn’t. My question is, where was all this outrage when cities were burning to the ground in 2020? Did people have a legitimate gripe then? Maybe they did, maybe they didn’t? I am not arguing either way. I will say this and it is ok if you don’t agree with me, that is your right. The man will be out of office in 12 FREAKIN DAYS!!! LET IT GO!! I am a conservative, always have been, always will be. I believe in free speech, but that doesn’t mean I have to agree with what you say, or vie versa. I believe in my right to bear arms, I have a right to defend myself whether you think so or not. I was raised that you have to earn everything in life and if you want something, go get it. I was also raised to believe that what is yours is yours. I have no rights to it, and I don’t want you to have to give me what you worked so hard to get. Someone a lot smarter than me once said “The problem with spending other people’s money is that eventually, it runs out” I tell you what, you keep yours, I will keep mine and lets just be happy for one another!
Now I am quite sure someone that reads this will get all in an uproar about…….something! Before you start know this, I am not going to defend my thoughts and opinions. They are mine and I have a right to them. This is MY BLOG and I can put down in words anything I please, it is mine after all. If you do not like what I am saying, here is a novel thought, don’t read it. That is what I do, I just don’t participate in what upsets me. I don’t watch CNN, don’t agree with their agenda. In fact, I basically stay away from mainstream media because, I think they all a pushing an agenda. I try and do my own research and come to my own conclusions. One thing though, I keep my thoughts to myself. I know, WEIRD right??? I read and watch things that make me happy. Why you ask? Because life is too short to be pissed off all the time so, I choose to be happy. if you are reading this, there is a good chance we are friends and you are on one of my social media accounts. If you think about it, I post something I deem as funny daily. I do that because their are plenty of others that post things to get a sad, negative reaction. I want to be funny and positive so maybe, just maybe you get a chuckle instead and rise in blood pressure. Another quirk of mine, I must be insane right?
Bottom line is this, if you are my friend, you are my friend. I want you to be happy and prosperous! I don’t care which side of the political isle you reside on, I just don’t! Live your life the way you see fit, believe in what you want to believe in and I will do the same. We don’t have to see eye to eye on everything. Thought we learned this a long time ago. I am a Mississippi State fan but, I have plenty of friend’s that are Ole Miss fans. Just because we cheer for different schools, doesn’t mean we can’t be friends. Same goes for politics, some of us forget that. My dad is the smartest man I know and when I asked him about what is going on today he says. “They are all crooks”. I think he has a point. We are all on social media preaching, fussing and accusing while the powers at be are sitting back watching, playing with us like puppets on a string. We have the power to stop it, we just have to remember that we do. Maybe stop playing their game and start being happy again. Post happy things, talk about your kids, grandkids and such. Stop letting someone else control your thoughts and emotions. Get them out of your head, they have lived their rent free for long enough. I ask again. Can’t we all just get along??
