Get A Clue !!!
Let me start by saying that regardless of who you are or what group you belong to I do not need you to think for me, decide what's best for me, or tell me what I should and should not do. What I do in the privacy of my own home is none of your damn business regardless of whether you approve or disapprove of whatever that might be. I do not need you to define morality for me, I do not need your approval of my lifestyle, and I certainly don't need you to watch over me. Don't insult me by saying that you represent a higher power or superior interest that is only looking out for my well being. I don't need it, I don't want, and I don't appreciate being told by you or anyone else how to live my life, raise my children, express my opinions or otherwise enjoy this existance I've been given.
If I want your opinion I'll ask for it, if I want your trust I'll try to earn it, and if I need your love I'll do my best to show you why I deserve it.
I have the right to be free of your interference.
I am so amazed by the contridictions and hypocracy I see all around me. I hear the words "WAR ON DRUGS" yet I see in every major magazine full page ads for the latest and greatest cure all that can be yours for only $9.00 per pill. Considered individually both cigarettes and alcohol kill more people and cost society more money that all other drugs combined. Both cigarettes and alcohol cause serious physical and psychological ADDICTION. But there's no war on these drugs and the police won't kick in your door, confiscate and sell your belongings or plaster your name in the city newspaper for your indulgence.
I hear the words "FREEDOM AND JUSTICE FOR ALL" yet I see ghettos and prisons full of minorities. In portions of the south the prison population is 90% minorities while the jurisdictional area is made up of only 20%. It doesn't add up and you're kidding yourself if you think it's a fair representation of what's going on. Do us all a favor and find and watch the movie "The Color of Fear"
I hear the words "LOVE MAKES THE WORLD GO AROUND" yet I see institutions defining what love is and with whom it can be "properly" shared. I see governments making laws telling me what I can and can't do with those I love.
I hear the words "TRUST IN GOD AND HE SHALL SET YOU FREE" yet I see predjudice in the name of God, hatred and war in the name of God, unscrupulous individuals collecting and demanding money in the name of God. Please don't get me wrong... I KNOW that God exists. I feel him within me and I see him within you. But I don't need you to tell me what he wants from me, how he expects me to behave or what my relationship with him should be.
Doesn't anybody else see these this ?!? Don't you realize how inherently wrong these things are ?!?
No one has the right to harm the person or property of another.
I'll be the first to admit I don't have all the answers. But I do know what has to happen before any positive change is to occur.
1) Confront and destroy predjudice and racism on all fronts.
An American Indian grandfather was talking to his grandson about how he felt.
He said, "I feel as if I have two wolves fighting in my heart. One wolf is the vengeful, angry, violent one. The other wolf is the loving, compassionate one."
The grandson asked him, "Which wolf will win the fight in your heart?"
The grandfather answered, "The one I feed."
2) Realize that what happens between two consenting adults is nobodys business but theirs.
3) Make sure that your duly elected representatives know that you are adamant about the fact that government has no business running or even trying to run the lives of individual citizens.
4) Open your eyes and your mind. Look around you and really think about what you see.
I don't owe you anything.
Read these. It'll do you good !!!
