" Is this Living?"


When morals decline and good men do nothing, evil flourishes. A society unwilling to learn from past is doomed. We must never forget our history.   J. Edgar Hoover

Do you remember a long time ago when we seen something bad happen to someone we would say, Hey, be careful it could happen to you. Well, the way things are going these days we say, its going to happen to you sooner or later even if you are careful. Try not to become collateral damage. I realize that human behavior has been questionable for a thousand years and people have been wondering why people do what they do since the beginning of time. Things have escalated in the past few years and its my opinion that what is going on in this country these days is because of anger and rage. None of us is bullet proof to the craziness and insanity going on in the world today...We have come to the point here in the United States depending where you live that its too dangerous to venture outside. I realize it has always been somewhat like this, more or less but it seems like its much worse now. Ask yourself a few questions. Do you know who your neighbors are? Do you trust them? Are you sure? Would you let them baby sit your 6 year old daughter or give them the key to your house to watch while you go on vacation? I'll bet you are thinking about that? Has your home ever been invaded or broken into. Watch out there country dwellers you are on the list now. You are not untouchable anymore. I have never heard of that happening till a few years ago. Even you out there in the country in your 2 Million dollar home is not safe. Has there ever been a suicide in your family? No, but I'll bet you know someone who has? Has divorce hit your family or your kids or nieces and nephews? Do you smoke cigarettes? Could you stop if you wanted to?...Right, try it.. How about Alcoholism or Drug Addiction? Do you really know what your son or daughter would do to get the drink or drug he or she needs when craving it? Do you have an Alcoholic or Drug addict in your family? Read about addiction and learn. Have you been touched by those deceases yet...Notice I said yet...Have you felt the misery of a death by car accident on the highways these days or by the horrendous weather we are having? Has a family member or you or even a friend ever been raped or murdered? How about losing your job or your home? Have you ever had your car repossessed? Have you ever been watched so much you are starting to get paranoid? Your cell phone is really a hand held computer that will tell everyone everything. Are you or your kids addicted to your cell phone. Do you go back and get it if you forget it at home? Could you go a day without it? Try that. Those cards the Supermarket uses. The ones you scan to buy something. Right, even they know what you are doing all the time. Did you ever wonder why you need a plastic card with a bar code to buy almost anything? How about your kids. Have they left the family home to go out in the world only to come back to live with you again? Are they saving for their future and retirement? Hell, are you saving for your future and retirement? The way things are going now you won't be able to retire until you are 70. That's only if Social Security exists or has any money left. Will you be healthy enough to work until you are 70? All those wonderful politicians you voted for that spend millions to get elected or reelected are robbing you blind. Ask them about their retirement and health care. Don't believe me? Just wait, you will see! Remember when you knew the cop on the beat by his first name? The police today are more Military than anything else. They all shave their heads and wear bullet proof vests and combat fatigues. They carry automatic weapons like in a the army. Police departments of today now have haz mat teams and a bomb squads. You haven't lived until you have been evacuated from a building because of a bomb threat or a mysterious white powder scare. Kids are being shot in schools everyday somewhere in this country. And no its not just the ghettos. Oh, can I still say that? Think about that? Have your children ever been in a locked down school because of a white powder scare?  In a High School in Enfield Connecticut last week some girls peed in some cup cake batter, baked them and gave them to their class mates...(Link below)  You are being scrutinized, searched and watched everywhere you go. From the highways and stores to Facebook and Google. Now they want to look at your E-mail with out a warrant and there isn't a Blessed thing you or I can do about it. From those horrible reality shows on TV, which are not reality by the way to the movie violence, it is the worst I have ever seen. Promiscuity is normal today and modesty is nonexistent. There is nothing left to the imagination.  As the years, months and days go by the odds of something I just described happening to you increase. So if you think you were careful before, brother you haven't seen anything yet....Its all because of greed and the constant desire to take your money...They will do anything to steal something from you or sell you something. Life today is only about the numbers.

You are so right L.G. I have a 17 year old and a 15 year old and I worry for them every day. They are good kids, but unfortunately some of this world is not. Great post!

Oh... Once again you shoot right at the truth and nailed the target L.J.! I feel the hatred, anger, and mistrust all around me... My Sons are safe now, big enough to take care of themselves, but my Granddaughter? Lord...Scares me to death when she leaves here... I am a fighter L.J.... It may seem like I am in the clouds, but that is only because if I dwell on what I can not change, then I would be miserable... I try to laugh as much as possible in this world... Even when It is hard to do so... Thank You for the post... I will take heed! :) Smile L.J.... Just because A Friend Said to smile :) :D hee hee...... Love, Teresa
