I've been hacked, attacked and am fighting back by relocating, reinventing and revising my life: WARNING:Beyond this place be dragons, and you are tasty with ketchup.
I agree, but feel assured we'll do great damage on the way down.
But we will be doing it ON THE WAY DOWN. My point exactly.
What scares me the most is my children are heading out into this world. They'll either be forced to live in or forced to fix the mess "we" have created. I'm thinkin' Costa Rica is looking better and better.
There's no fixing. I'm so glad I don't have school aged children and I'm glad that I'm far from being school aged myself. The only thing of any interest when I was in school was the cool kids drank beer. wooo

Sorry Stephen. It got better. I promise.
As much as I dislike everything you have said, I am inclined to agree with all of it. There are no good answers here.
I disliked everything I said too!
Unfortunately, I'm going to have to agree with you, not that I dislike being agreeable, just that I hate to agree with what you said... but it's the truth.
I didn't like saying it! In fact, I've kept it under "Drafts" for quite a while, until the last two situations that were shoved in my face. There was NOTHING that could be done about it, and that's the part that is growing out of control and getting a lot of people paranoid. Both are equally scary.
Since its hopeless, will you sell me your Colt .357?
Are you referring to my FIRST EDITION COLT .357, that was only made between 1998 and 1999....the one that needs a specially designed holster due to it's larger size? Hmmmmm?That one?
Lotta Joy,I agree with your post, so many don't have their eyes wide open on the issues in front of them.Yes, "The pendulum has swung too far to be corrected. It must finish its swing, and it isn't at it's full pinnacle YET".
Yes. And before everyone exits my blog thinking I'm racially prejudiced, let me say that I'm prejudiced against ANY race that acts like I described. It just happens to be mostly one race that is flaunting it.
Of course, you are correct. The only thing to remember is that you are not really a bigot. When you see a white man poorly groomed, whose eyes dart to your purse, you are just as uncomfortable as you are with a poorly groomed black man who does the same. An attempt has been made to try to re-program us to believe that anytime we identify a problem with a black person, that this is prejudice, it's not. I give blacks and whites the same opportunities. Either race is likely to be shot if they break into my home while I am here. I think you are likely the same.
Like I said above, I can't tolerate the aggressive and blatant disregard for acceptable behavior. Even if it's acceptable IN THEIR HOME, there's such a thing as adjusting your behavior to fit your surroundings.Walmart seems to be the perfect place to see TRASH IN ACTION and whether it's black, or white, it still violates MY space.
This is such a good article, hon...and to think I though you were just another pretty face.
Oh honey. Don't you know by now that I'm a seething, heaving, volcano of admirable qualities???
"This is not paranoia, The danger already exists" Amen my Friend you are 100% right.As for being a hate or humor blog all depends on the subject matter for the day, I don't see anything you have ever written that would qualify it as a hate blog, good old honest opinions is what it is all about and if that entails getting up on a soapbox then so be it, I myself have one over at my place too :)
Thank you Jimmy. I've had several regular readers get so upset over finding my writing to be anti-american and prejudicial, they huffed out in a rage and emailed me with much condemnation.Which is why it's impossible to get 'nice' people to produce a united front against atrocious and unacceptable behavior. ESPECIALLY SINCE, NO WHERE IN MY POST DID I MENTION COLOR. So I guess the assumptions were in their minds already. OR: and this is most revealing - my non color descriptions were AUTOMATICALLY recognized to be coming from one particular race. hmmmmmmmmm
Sadly, I have to say that I believe you are right on all counts, Lotta Joy. The world is not as it once was or as we wish it to be, and we can hide behind our rose colored glasses or prepare ourselves as best we can to cope with what has changed. This was a strong and honest post. I appreciate your comments on my blog post about this too. Thank you!
It could have been handled differently but, at the time, we were in the beginning stages of being brainwashed. The ones who were totally against equality were considered ignorant and prejudiced (and they were).But the pendulum swung out of control in the other direction and way past "equal".
I see nothing wrong with being politically correct. But, some people use pretended pc to forward their own agendas.I mentioned on a yahoo group that I wondered why only Hispanics used the water stations where you fill a 5-gallon jug of water and can refill it. I was slammed from dozens of people who labeled me a racist for targetting Hispanics. No one was targeted. I just wondered if they lived in hovels with no water. I was sort of concerned for them, seeing I am a bleeding heart liberal.But, all anyone could see was the word "Hispanice" on their monitor. No insults were flung. I just identified the person I saw. I did not generalize to the whole group. People can be idiots.I was a fully grown adult in the mid 60s and remember all the things forecast for our future by those who hated. NOT ONE THING was true. I have been extremely alarmed by the prospective future some people have forecast. I fell for it. Now, I feel that very little of what is forecast now will happen. However, this is one liberal who is very concerned with the prospect of gun ownership being a right we lose. I am a complicated liberal. One of my very young friends has autism, has high functioning level, and will not work because she does not have to. She drives, lives alone, and feels she cannot be forced to work. Her job in life is to spend her money buying a new purse every week because she can. "I cannot work anywhere because I have autism." I am just as upset with this lazy, good for nothing, white person as I would be with any group that anyone rants about. She equates her ssdi with mine. However, I am 66, 100% disabled, educated and have worked. After surgery I aspire to work again, mow the yard, and continue to help others. She lies about having no money to get me to open my wallet or drive her, free of charge (no gas money) everywhere she wants to go. She is not of the demographic of which you speak. Yet, she will use all the tactics anyone else will. She is entitled to be violent toward me because she cannot help it. (She can even though that is a tendency of frustrated persons with autism. Guess who never gets in my car anymore or comes in my house. She is entitled to lie. Now, I figured out she steals and is totally good with doing wrong. I see her. When Walmart catches her, she will cry "autism" and get away with it. "Autism" could be any other label.Sorry about the rant, but you got me started...lol.
ENTITLEMENT. There ya go.
Practical Parsimony: I live in El Paso...87% Hispanic. I asked one of my Hispanic neighbors why she bought 5 gallon jugs of water rather than using what comes out of the tap.Her answer: She does not trust the water coming out of the tap! She lived in Mexico as a child (she is a legal immigrant, btw) and one of her younger siblings died from a water borne disease, even though her family was *middle class* and they lived in an area that had supposedly *safe* water and indoor plumbing. She also told me that many of her friends and family also buy their drinking water...as well as water for bathing their children, as they do not trust tap water, either.
"This is not paranoia, The danger already exists"True, that.So very true.Great post!!
I could live quite easily, looking in the opposite direction IF we were still living in Indiana. We moved to a very rural/country area of Florida.But, If we lived near Tampa, I honestly don't think we'd leave home after dark.So, like fungus, it is spreading outward and coming to a neighborhood near you.
You're absolutely right. These last few posts I've read of yours about the "ridiculous situations" leave me shaking my head with the thought that these people vote. And that just sucks. We need a good place to ex-pat to.
Let's see....guns are outlawed in Australia so the crime rate is through the roof. Legal guns are banned in Mexico....and we know how that worked out....Costa Rica??? Lemme check. I'll get back with you.
We've done a little reading on Costa Rica and Argentina. It's a shame that Switzerland won't have us.
If Switzerland would have us, they'd be in the same bad shape we are.
Right then, I'm not going to get into any sort of discussion on this one. I live in a different place and thankfully, we don't have these problems and I feel safe walking the streets at night.So, let's just say this. You are not old. In fact, I'm only a little bit younger than you and I certainly wouldn't consider myself old. So enough of the old crap.
Younger is still YOUNGER, which makes me OLD. Damn old. And I resent it.
I am 66 and well on my way to 67, and I think you are younger than I am. I was young and hot once and will be hot again....if I can find a man old enough. And, I did agree with your post and attitude.
I love this. I actually don't own many guns, but it's just because I don't have the money to get a few more. I just can't understand how people think we are just going to talk our way out of a violent situation. I would never want to use my gun to defend myself, but I hopefully will be alert enough to do so and have it close enough that I can if the need arises.I don't see that things are going to change. Society is sinking down and things will only get worse. There may be a few places where it gets better, but as a whole, I don't expect improvement.
