I am really, really saddened by the state of the world these days. The backwards racist thinking; the sexist, homophobic sentiment. The anti-scientific mentality. And worse of all the utter hypocrisy and lack of love for our fellow man. Are there bad people, bad cops, bad parents, and so on in the world? Of course there are. But society is more than the individual. I have always felt that the measure of a man (or woman) was in their own actions not in the color of their skin, the clothes they wear, or the opportunities that they were given. Horrible things happen because as a society the value of taking personal responsibility is diminished. The blame game, lawsuits, and quick get rich schemes are the more acceptable than saying 'mea culpa'. When someone does take accountability for their actions they are vilified and it is used against them. The very ideals that the majority religions preach, that of love and forgiveness are rejected and the charity to others becomes lip service as such things as homelessness and hunger become criminalized!
I am not nor will I ever be a conservative. I am not now will I ever be a liberal. I cannot in good conscious agree with either Democrats or Republicans. I am pro-gun regulations, pro-civil liberties, pro-universal healthcare and education. I am anti-government overreach into family and personal body matters. I am anti-corporate person-hood, anti-GMO I am pro-common sense and logical reasoning.
I don't care what you think of Obama. He IS our President. I am sick of all of the 'pro-gun' posts,. no one is trying to take your guns unless you are a sick crazy sonofabitch. I don't care if you smoke weed, as long as you don't wave it in my face! And I am very very tired of Police Bashing.
And I think if we each had to take personal responsibility for our actions, and stopped spreading propaganda all day long on social media, the world would be a much better place.
