Hello! 🖐 How’s everyone doing today? I woke up today at almost 3 a.m. with some stuff on my mind, and I figured, why not blog about it. Check it out, and write in. Let me know what’s up.
This morning I Tweeted, ” Okay so we’re going to attack Drew Brees now for stating his opinion about flag burning and kneeling. YOU’RE STILL NOT GETTING IT! (They’re calling him lost, and saying he’s not ready.) LMAO. The minute you say something against the narrative, you’re demonized.”
“I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country,” Brees said in an interview with Daniel Roberts. “Let me just tell what I see or what I feel when the national anthem is played and when I look at the flag of the United States.”
It’s amazing how many people would agree with this quote until they see the picture of the man who said it.
A major problem in this country is that we as a people receive backlash and pushback for stating our opinions. I talk about this all the time. Every person in this country has the right to talk about and share their personal opinions.
No one should ever be threatened, attacked, demonized, red flagged, blacklisted, or outcasted for sharing their opinions. You cannot argue with someone for giving an opinion. I don’t understand why people aren’t accepting that.
This is why we are are ill as a nation. Good therapy encourages you to talk about what you’re feeling, and what’s on your mind, but the minute we do, we get attacked, demonized, and labeled.
Yesterday, I wrote a story titled Sports in America because I wanted to:
- Bring attention to the fact that we live in a very diverse country. There will always be racist people in this country. Racism, bigotry, and prejudice will always be present in a nation that’s as diverse as America, but you cannot solve racial issues by forcing people to accept one another.
That’s why sports are important. Good teams, and successful teams are able to put their differences aside. When they do, there’s a real magical feeling, and ultimately, they win. Trust me.
My brother and I always laughed and joked about the town we grew up in because we said it was a microcosm of the world. It was very diverse culturally. If you walked into our high school cafeteria at lunch you would see white kids sitting with white kids, black kids sitting with black kids, Asians sitting with Asians, Jewish people sitting with Jewish people, and of course there were lunch tables made up of people who played sports together.
This was never done on purpose. People just naturally gravitated into groups they felt comfortable in. For the most part, there weren’t any issues either. Everyone really got along, but when it came time to eat, people ate with the people they felt comfortable with.
One day, the Vice Principal said he had an issue with this, and he wanted to break these tables up and force students to take random seats at lunch, but he never did. There was never a problem, but he almost created one.
There’s nothing wrong with people sitting and eating with who they’re comfortable with, eventually they’ll come out of their comfort zones, but if you try to force it prematurely, you’re going to do more harm than good.
Random Thoughts/Opinions About Covid-19 and George Floyd
- I encourage you to use some common sense here.
- We never shut the country down for an illness before.
- When you’re sick, you stay home until you’re better. Right?
- Many people were curious about the closure of the economy. All government centers closed and people went home.
- Almost three months later, riots break out, and conveniently, no one was working.
- Why didn’t the people who were filming the police officer kneeling on Floyd’s neck try to push the cop off? They just kept saying, “You’re killing him, you’re killing him, you’re killing him, you’re killing him, you’re killing him, oooooooh he’s dead.”
- If the Coronavirus is legit, we should be able to test for it. If you’re sick then you stay home until you’re better. People who exercise for thirty minutes a day live longer than people who sit around doing nothing. Life extension is increased by 30%. (I hear that on Coast to Coast.)
- The beach is extremely beneficial and it promotes good health and skin care. Salt water and sunshine are essential.
- Excessive force and police brutality are real issues in this country, and we should always call it out and bring attention to it.
- I don’t think the military should ever be turned on the people. If people are peacefully protesting, marching, and walking, why are they in a standoff with an armed militia?
- There are many reasons why people protest, but one main reason is to show the government they are not in charge. The people are. The people put you in power. It’s a government created by the people, for the people.
- When the government no longer works for the people, the people can abolish and start anew.
- If I was ever arrested and killed, I would hope someone would avenge my death, but right now, a lot of people are just taking advantage.
- Excessive police force and brutality should not be tolerated, ever. It doesn’t matter what color you are. Victims have to bring attention to it and call it out.
- Let’s try to recognize narratives. This is important because it’s because of the narratives that people get attacked for speaking their minds and sharing their opinions. Individual Americans are being outcasted and demonized when they speak against the popular narratives.
- We all should keep a copy of the Bill of Rights on hand.
- Listen to people. Give people a chance to speak. Stop trying to silence people when you don’t agree with them.
- Let’s keep sports strong, pure, and free from people who are trying to distort the meaning of teamwork and undermining the value of perseverance, hard work, and winning.
- If “we the people” are upset, than the system isn’t working. What’s the problem? What can we fix, what can we change?
- Let’s go back to paper prescriptions because e-scripts are causing unnecessary inconveniences. Little things like that. Think.
- We can’t fix everything at once. We have to start with smaller issues, and get some small victories under our belts.
- People don’t want to be controlled, or forced to do anything. We like to make decisions for ourselves.
Okay everyone. Pay attention, stay alert, and educate yourselves. Feel free to write in. Have a joyful and blessed day.
