"Lorenzo Mind Your Own Business"

 I was thinking about how people care and the TV that I don't watch... I mean do we really care? With me I think that comes from a long time ago when there were less people in this country and we all knew what each of us thought about certain things. Almost like a group opinion... We knew as a group that we wouldn’t care about what happened in another town, what the neighbors thought, the earthquake, the flood, the fire or the mass murder. We wouldn’t have known about any of that stuff so we would‘t have cared. It just makes sense, .…..Hence the advice from my mom… ”Lorenzo mind your own business"… That sentence is engraved into my mind.…Today, although I try to do that and I am successful most of the time, I feel like I should be caring more than I do. TV always tries to put you on a guilt trip with the buying things we don't need, the send money ads and the sympathy dripping commercials…..I half care at times but pretend I don’t. I care a lot at times but pretend I only half care. One of the reasons the news or commercials have no effect on me is because I really don’t care about what happens to other people in other towns or countries because I was taught not to. (TV networks and channels sell time to sponsors by having the most outrageous news) Its always about the money. The criminals and morons don’t realize that when they screw up or get caught someone makes money. In some weird way its like the criminals work for the local news channels but they don't know that. From there I get, its OK to mind my own business. Its like they have the problem and its up to me to learn by their bad experience not to do the same thing…Its just that there is so much going on and as the population grows, the more copycats want to be on TV. I mean what else could it be? I guess when you get older and wiser you have a tendency to snub your nose at negative behavior and think, what an ass he or she is and they should have known better. At least that’s what I do and its OK to do that……. I have certain people that I will help and will go to any length to help them…To others, I will care somewhat but I will sit by and learn by their bad experience not to put myself in the same position they are in…..There is so much insanity I won’t even pray for them.……I’ve got to go now… Damn, where did I put that bullet proof vest?
