Somebody Has to Say It!
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!”
