In this world! I do find from time to time a nugget of something that either we may take for granted! Or there are times when a thought goes/runs through our minds about something that we somehow believe is true but! Just not that sure about it!
In comes me! Now! I am in no way! Boating/bragging about me at all. It’s just that I would have to say that because of the Internet! I can go places see and do things as well as look up stuff! But as I said. I know from talking to people most of my life. Where we both were not all that sure about it.
I thin that the comments, views, opinions I make! Do give people something to think about and be informed as well. And! Is not it what we all looking for? Information and in a way! An entertaining thought along the way? Another way of looking and seeing things from another fellow space traveler?
Like! When the Government shutdown! Whoever the congressman was that had the idea (As you can see! I am not all that into politics!) My first thought was: “Whoever it is thought that this might be a great way to get a foot in the door of the political system!”. As far as that goes! Small minds! You know the rest!
I do think that since one is fair in their thoughts, comments, views, opinions! And yes! Have done their research into whatever! We can take “Political Correctness” Out of commission aka deep six it!
Because all it is really truly doing to us! Is making us petrified of saying what we think feel, believe in anything. And this should not be. This is not how our parents were raised and their parents and so on. And beside! The last time it reared it’s ugly head (The phrase!)! Was in a comic strip!
The phrase itself! Has the wrong definition! The modern day definition of political correctness is: “Conform and comply with what “I” want you to say and do!” But! To these same people who want others to do and be and say what they want us to! If!!! And if! Someone pulled the same “Trick” on them! The response would be: “HOW DARE YOU!” You see what I mean?
And because it! It restricts us from asking, let along knowing what it is that we need to know. Many times! I have taken the first step in asking questions. Only to be laughed at or embarrassed because! “They” themselves would not dare to ask. Do you want that causes? Mistakes mess ups, screw ups, and the hits just keep on coming!!! We learned that! In grade school and our classmates and even our friends! When they tell us stuff like that! Are they really our friends?
Though! I do not put any stock into the Internet and any websites there are! I have always been one to read one or even more websites and books about something or someone.
For example! I am in the process of reading about FDR and Abe Lincoln. Over the years there have been many books about them. And what I do find interesting is. What one does not talk about! Some other Author will.
Another! The original Tylenol scare! At that time I did subscribe to both time and Newsweek. And I found that what time did not cover! Newsweek did and to the same in reverse as well.
The best quote I ever heard was from Tony Brown of PBS’S Tony Brown’s Journal. And at the end of his program. He would give “Words of thought”. My personal favorite briefly: “It’s always best to get more than one side of a story!”
In the 80’s! I watched the then WWF now WWE. Since a company that transmits cable via microwave rooftop antenna. At that time! The weekly program came from then WOR-TV from N.J.. Every Saturday I was glued to the set. Even back then it was not so much acrobatics as has been for many years. The WWF was more a family oriented type of show. Can anyone remember the merchandise they sold on their show?
It was not until WCW began really giving (From this point on WWE) the WWE a run for its money! Then! We saw Monday night RAW! Then Smackdown then Saturday night’s main event on NBC! And then lots of PPV’s along the way.
The wrestlers would go back and fourth from one major org. To the other. Then when WCW was gone! The WWE kept up rather well with its superstars. Hulk Hogan! Who could not love that guy? But! I found that over many matches. His moves were what can only be called “Choreographed!”. He would started out like a house afire! Then fizz! Then lit back up! Then fizzed again! Eventually he always won!
Other wrestlers! “Stone cold” Steve Austin, “The rock”, Randy Savage, “Nature Boy” Rick Flair, and then some!
But after WCW went bye-bye! There went the competitiveness, the excitement among the two “Power Houses”. During that time! The storylines were not that big of a deal. Now! They are.
Even while it was known as the WWF! Each match had a time limit! Now a days! None!
Let me make this clear! I still love the wrestlers on the WWF! But! Do they have to go at it almost every night! In almost every match! Get so winded that you see them just trying to get a little breather! It is my understanding that they are Independent Contractors responsible for all expenses.
This will give you some idea: http://prowrestling.about.com/od/whatsrealwhatsfake/a/wrestlersdeaths.htm
If the industry still wants to keep them. There has to be something more as well as some extra time among traveling from town to town. And yes! Time zone to time zone.
As I said! I love watching it! But! Not at the expense of wrestlers health!
Remember the days! When we did something wrong? And we know we did? And got punished for it?
In today’s society and world! The means and method of how to that come into play. For some of us, it was dads belt, paddle (As in school), And yes with some parents the switch. But! Those parents knew when to put the breaks on it! FDR said it best: “The United States Constitution has proved itself the most marvelously elastic compilation of rules of government ever written.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt

And yes! Even our current laws are that way! If you really read the article! Even the 50 states themselves. Are not sure. But something has to be done.
For some kids! When they were growing up! Perhaps their parents did not tell why they got hit by whatever means they deemed necessary. Was it “The punishment fit the crime?” Only the parents now.
It also could be because! When their parents were goring up! Whatever they got. Their kids got when they had them. Thus! The vicious cycle begins. But the problem of child abuse has been kept in hiding for so long. It was not until the 1980’s that it slowly came fourth and was being discussed.
Are our lawmakers really solving problems? Or dancing around them to make sure when election time comes. Their seat will remain warm for them?
