11-20-13-My Morning Thoughts: I have no idea anymore! I’ve agreed with some democrat’s issues and I’ve agreed with some republican’s issues at various times throughout my life, mainly because I just never could be a vote down the party line kind of guy. If I liked a candidate I would do a little research and if I still liked that candidate after that research…I voted!...and not necessarily just the two biggie parties either. However, the stuff that is so overly hyped today makes it extremely hard to follow or believe half of what there spewing! On any given day I can find ten deferent answers on any one topic floating around out there! It’s insanely pathetic!...I can read and I can understand but there is just so many bold face lies that it’s just…sad. When I see video of our politicians saying something and then a few days later denying it…what kind of crap is that! Does no one have the character to say their word is their bond and mean it anymore!...and I’m not even saying be perfect but if and when you do make a mistake…JUST SAY IT!...when I was a kid and did something wrong and got caught my punishment was ten times harder if I got caught in a lie too!...not today it seems, you can say whatever you want as long as you know how to sell your way out of it…ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!!…I have to stop now cause I’m typing really hard and my fingers are beginning to hurt!...could ya tell?…plain and simple.
11-19-13-My Morning Thoughts: “The Workers” Has an entire class of people been forgotten in this country? It appears that the working class is no longer represented or ever described in a positive way with terms such as “the backbone of our country” like it use to be. What would have been our fate without the hard workers of America? Would we even have a fate? Being realistic could anything have been accomplished without the blood and sweat of all those who day in and day out went to work, pay their bills, raise their children, help their friends, and try to achieve a part of the “Dream”. Is the term middle class fading towards the norm when classifying this group of hard workers? Is it just a thin line that separates the lower and middle and “a” threads difference of disposable income? Obviously there are hard workers at every social economic tier…but without the one main group the others most likely cease to exist. Maybe the “working class” deserves the most credit of all, maybe the “working class” is now the first class people should strive to be, maybe the “working class” should simply be treated as heroes for all their accomplishments?...maybe…plain and simple.
11-18-13-My Morning Thoughts: “COOL” Why do you think it is…that all the generations now have mixed into all the other generations? Wait I’ll explain…say for instance in the 60’s people answered statements with…that’s cool or lets rap…or in the 70’s it was like far out or ya man or in the 80’s you heard like…like…all the time…and the 90’s dude was reinvented again and 00’s…all of the above and then some! Nothing is specific to this generation…well maybe work habits but that’s a whole other thing…example: dude ya want-a go to the mall…sure man…like do you want to go after school…that’s cool…so like what are you looking to buy…like I don’t know I thought we would just hang together…far out dude…///…..or how bout tie-dyed t-shirts. 60’s then 70’s then nothing, then returning in the 90’s and never went away since. It’s probably because the really COOL things just keep on coming back and cool is cool is cool…can’t wait for bellbottoms!...plain and simple.
11-14-13-My Morning Thoughts: “A second chance” What if there is life after death? What if there is reincarnation? What would we do with a second chance? What would we do with our lives if we ‘knew’ it was a rebirth and a second time around? There may be several things we would change or there may be similar paths like the first time around that we decide to do again. Anyway, whatever would or may happen I would hope that with a second chance people would care about each other a little more each time around…two or three or four times we should probably start getting it right I would hope…however, I must admit, in case there isn’t another chance why wait…maybe we should start caring a little more this time around…plain and simple.
11-13-13-My Morning Thoughts: “just a gesture” I gave a guy 20 bucks the other day who was asking for some change for a cup of coffee and his eyes lit up and he was so very grateful. I never really gave that much money before although usually if I have some change I do oblige when the situation arises and it doesn’t look like a scam. Some may say I’m a sucker for doing such things some might say it’s just the right thing to do…anyway, while I was walking back to my car across the parking lot with my coffee in hand I opened my door, looked down and there was a 50 dollar bill sitting there all alone with no other people or cars around…life really makes you wonder sometimes why things happen the way they do…could it be devein intervention or fate, destiny, coincidence? Or it could have been that I just watched Willy Wonka (yes the original) last night for the 50th time…”so shines a good deed in a weary world”…plain and simple.
11-11-13-My Morning Thoughts: “Licensed for Freedom” I just couldn’t wait to get my driver’s license; I literately counted the days till my 16 birthday starting at my 15 birthday party! There was just something about the thought of the open road and on your own and…well…driving! Thoughts of having your own car and the power over what radio station to listen to and how loud you wanted to jam the music and anywhere you wanted to go at anytime…of course when you get your license what goes a long with it is…no car! So you wash your parents car so you can drive it for an hour or two then you clean your room for the first time so you can use the car for an hour or two then you do the dishes so you can use the car for an hour or two…then…you can’t use the car anyway cause you AINT GOT NO MONEY FOR THE GAS!!! No wonder why my parents were laughing at me from 15 to 16 every time I said I can’t wait to get my license!...plain and simple.
11-08-13-My Morning Thoughts: There was a time when I had the world by the balls! I had my youth I had my great looks I had my flat stomach I had my quick reaction time I had my friends…oh wait, I still have my friends…thank god!...have a great weekend all…plain and simple.
11-07-13-My Morning Thoughts: “PJ’s” When you’re young everybody sleeps with some kind of PJ’s on…when you grow up it’s your choice…I’m told the really elegant highly intellectual people sleep in their original birthday suit…just saying…plain and simple.
11-06-13-My Morning Thoughts: What really means the most? Who ever felt like selling everything buying some land in the middle of nowhere and starting over? Build some cabins, farm the land, live as a community, share your talents, barter among each other, raise the children village style, and worship the earth and what it offers…ok let’s just say some of us said yes. I know I could do without a car, TV, and almost everything else of the material world’s luxury possessions but I could never give up or even think about relinquishing or comprehend not having my…fill in the blank if ya like____________________________________…plain and simple.
11-05-13-My Morning Thoughts: “Almost Presidential” If I say something stupid it doesn’t make me stupid does it? I hear a whole lot of stupid things on the news these days from politicians in congress as well as news media people and I was thinking that when I say something stupid it kind of levels me with a similar playing field being almost presidential in some sort of holier than now congressional minded way…some of these folks really need to listen a lot more intently before they speak…now don’t start yelling cause you may think I’m calling people stupid because I’m not…but we do say some stupid things sometimes…I know I do…plain and simple.
