Do I Come Off Like A Hater?

The intent of this website has always been truth and open discussion in search of the truth. I make some pretty unpopular comments on this site that many people are afraid to even think about for fear of reprisal. But I say these things because my research has proven to myself my opinion to be true and correct. I do not expect anyone to believe I know what I am talking about, but I do expect that if I’m not believed that those in disagreement would at least make an effort to review the data presented by sources they believe to be to be true. All of my data comes from sources recognized as reliable sources for said data.

For instance, The Washington Post Database. This data source says that the Black Population of the U.S. is approximately 13 percent, and it is. But this is where everybody has stopped looking at the data, to use 13 percent as the calculation regarding people shot by police. Now, this is simple math, and most of you know the major cities around you. If Blacks are 13 percent of the entire U.S. population, do you believe that Black people reside in everywhere America? There are communities in this Country that have 0 percent Black population. Where are the 13 percent for the 0 percent community? Well, they have added themselves to a different community, and suddenly someplace has more than 13 percent Black population. Look at major cities across America. What is the Black population percentage of the major cities in the U.S.? Surprise! 23 to 60 percent. And, if you take a look at the streets after dark you will discover that the downtown area of many cities is as much as 90 percent Black. I am not trying to make negative comments towards Blacks because they need to understand that they are being misled just like the rest of us. When you look at the actual population where these incidents happen, in many incidents the population of Blacks and Whites are both close to 33 percent each with the other percentage mixed.

Now, you don’t have to do but a couple minutes of research to ascertain I’m telling you the truth. Take a moment and then think about it. What does the Washington Post Database do? Sells newspapers, and promotes civil unrest which is another newspaper seller. All across this Country there are a lot of people making money off of racism. Look around you, people of all colors on the streets, on the Internet, and in the news. People everywhere promote racism while saying they are fighting racism. Those people are the problem. I don’t hate anyone, okay maybe an ex-wife, even that’s questionable.

Too truly combat racism, all you have to do is become color-blind and treat everybody as equal. It really is not that hard to do.

Inappropriate Dress

This is the stupidest topic I have ever come across. Do you people realize that you are allowing individual people to require you, a grown tax-paying, law abiding adult, dress how they want you to dress? You can play fashion police all you want, but unless some part of my attire is a violation of law, you can kiss my ass . . . I will wear what I want. Let me play a little history back at ya’.

Most of my childhood through adult years I enjoyed media showing some hot looking gal, with a byline of “Just because I’m showing my ass, it isn’t an invitation for rape” or something like that. It simply made the male responsible for his inappropriate sexual conduct. Presently, we have every place, organization, business, and transportation outfit playing dress censorship and making the decision of the moral compass of the Country. Talk about getting away with being a hater.

Have you noticed that most the people being made subject of such censorship are attractive? A nurse that gets a complaint that she looks too good in her scrubs, and today a gal that gets it because her tights she wears to the gym look too good. There have been quite a few in the middle that also could be included within this rant, but it isn’t necessary. What scares me most about this bullshit is this isn’t being done in accordance with any law, these people are legally dressed. No, this is being done by some person that believes they have the right to violate the law that says you can wear that. It’s a First Amendment right in case you are wondering.

The Courts have upheld laws of censorship for schools and in the workplace, allowing the School Board and Employers to set a dress code for students and employees so that folks are not distracted by others when they should be hard at work or learning. But, when did it became law that it was legal to censor the public at large?

“What do female tourists wear in Saudi Arabia?

New public decency standards were introduced in 2019, allowing visitors to wear some western-style attire. Female travelers are no longer required to wear an abaya or a headscarf. In public places, wearing short skirts, tight trousers, and revealing tops will attract negative gazes and disapprovals. Instead, female tourists should choose a loose outfit or dress covering the shoulders, chest, and legs. Another critical consideration while dressing for Saudi Arabia is to wear only opaque fabrics. People should not be able to see the underpants through clothes.

One should stay away from bright hues like red, yellow, and green, which can draw unwelcome attention. Instead, one can choose light and muted shades. Female tourists can wear jeans, but they should make sure the top half of the outfit is long enough to cover their backside. They can wear a bikini if they stay in a villa with their private pool but cover up when not in the water.”

Is this where we are going here in America? Little by little, each day, we find a way to eliminate our Rights. Sooner or later it will become law that you don’t have any rights, but it won’t affect you. No, it will affect your children’s children that will grow up in a society that no longer has a right to choose how they want to dress, what occupation they wish to pursue, or what God they should pray to. Is that the legacy you want to leave behind?

And what really pisses me off is the people making complaint likely do not even know what this Country’s Constitution is? Or, they are the biggest hypocrite alive because every damn one of them dressed provocatively most of their younger lives and many still do, but it is not okay for anyone else to do so.

I don’t care who you are or how old you are, you do not have the right to violate anybody’s personal freedoms. And if you believe you do have such right, I hope somebody sets you straight before you cause additional harm to our Country.

We Have All Been Lied To . . .

For years and more years lies about racial issues have been commonplace everywhere. Blacks and a whole bunch of Whites believe so seriously in all the hype of abuse towards Blacks that even when a claim proven a lie, they still believe in the lie.

  • The contention that Blacks make up about 13 percent of the U.S. population, so they should only get killed by police at that same 13 percent, is stupid. The information that brought about this reality was supported by a database compiled by The Washington Post in which it demonstrated the Black population at approximately 13 percent while police shootings of Blacks was above 20 percent in some cities. What people using this data is although the nation-wide black population is approximately 13 percent, in most major cities the Black population ranges from 20 to 60 percent. Also, in these same city’s Black population after dark (As in who is there to be shot by police) is close to 80 percent. The 13 percent rule is a lie
  • Almost all the issues being considered for reparations are being treated as though it only a Black issue. Do you really believe that Whites only treated Blacks poorly? White people treat everyone poorly, even Whites. Every issue raised by reparations has also affected some White people in much the same way as Blacks.
  • The idea that Whites have not suffered the same issues as Blacks is ridiculous. Employment, Education, and other opportunities have all been White abusive. And still continue to be. Blacks may only be a small percentage of the workforce in one category, while in others they have a much higher percentage. Players in NFL Football teams are 70 to 90 percent Black. Many occupations are at a high percentage of Blacks. When you look at percentages, look at the numbers 13 percent Black equals 1 or 2 percent White to have the same numbers.
  • Educators world-wide seem to think actually researching information before they further influence our youth is not important. There is a fella named Tom Thornhill that teaches a course on White Racism in Florida. I doubt he has truly done any research into the topic and he believes there is no such thing as Black Racism. He like so many of our educators teaches to promote racism. Until such time as they actually do the research to ascertain actual facts and figures they are teaching nothing but racial disharmony and failing our education system.

Why do we have the racial issues we have today? Because somebody is making money from it. Every organization that has a race name in their title is doing all of us another dose of racism. That’s how they put food on their table. But recognize it for what it is. Racism is not that hard to fight. Just mature enough to become color-blind and learn to treat people of all colors as equals. It is really not that hard to do. Those that claim to be “Woke” aren’t. How can you be “woke” if you only know one side of the topic?

How Did Homeless Become Cool?

Homeless is not, nor has it ever been cool. But, the way some of these people act you would think that it not only an acceptable lifestyle but a preferred way of life. Benefits of homelessness include:

  • Sleeping under the stars while you wonder who is going to do what to you while you are not awake.
  • Camping out with a bunch of folks that would just as soon cut your throat as do anything nice to anyone.
  • No fear of rape, robbery, assault, or victim of any crime . . . Once you get used to it, you don’t fear it very much.
  • You don’t have to protect your valuables. Somebody else will have them as soon as they find you on the street.
  • Being filthy, dirty body, dirty clothes, serious hygiene concerns are no longer a concern, as long as you can stand your own stench.
  • You get lots of attention from local government and police.
  • Local business are happy to see you in their establishment. It’s okay to steal from them, ya’ all come back anytime . . .
  • Don’t worry about being unemployed, the people you are camping with will find a job for you. What do you mean you won’t do that . . . Yes you will, repeatedly.
  • You get used to being so hungry that your belly button touches your backbone.
  • On the rare occasion that someone not homeless tries to help you, it’s acceptable to take advantage of them.
  • Most camps are run by your local Park Ranger or the person most aggressive that decides he is in charge, whether you like it or not.
  • That rustling in the bushes at night is probably nothing to fear until you feel it against your leg in the dark.
  • You don’t have to worry about keeping the neighborhood clean, herds of mice and rats will follow behind you to maintain the neighborhood. What do you mean, that hill moved?
  • You get lots of loving, by those that can hold you down . . . sometimes in groups. No worry of STD’s, you got them.
  • Rummaging through trash cans and dumpsters for your meals provides a wide variety of healthy foods. Remember penicillin comes from mold. Cheese matures by molding. What are you talking about, it’s not alive, of course it is alive, can’t grow unless it is alive . . . Mmmm tasty!
  • You don’t do dope! You mean you didn’t used to do dope. Now you do it, sell it, and have it stolen from you . . . Daily!
  • And never forget . . . There is always a nice clean bathroom available if you need one.
  • “High Street Oakland is the place to be, Homeless livin is the life for me” Sung with the music from “Green Acres” theme song . . .

I have no idea if the homeless encampment at High Street is still rooted to the area but between rioters following the death of George Floyd and the ongoing theft to retailers at one point they were talking shutting down Home Depot there. Now, almost daily there is another retailer closing their doors due to theft losses being so high. And there is no longer a safe place to shop anymore. Not all of this is due to homelessness, but a significant portion is and sooner or later it is going to effect our communities and the value of the State. California used to be prime real estate. It is losing its appeal quickly. Major retailers that have been part of the San Francisco market for many years are closing their doors. High end retailers and jewelry stores, even in populated shopping malls are brazenly attacked in broad daylight losing millions of dollars to theft and driving consumers from the area. You have to ask yourself, who will they attack when the retailers are gone.

Which brings us to the rise in Home Invasion robberies. Again not directly attributed to homelessness but you need understand that these people are hungry and when one food source leaves, another will have to provide for their needs. There is no need for homelessness in the United States and no need for support of the homeless community, not when we have government agencies that can absorb a significant portion of those living homeless.

How many of our homeless could be enlisted in our military? How many of our homeless could be utilized supporting the military. Could the homeless be better helped by being used this way, given a job, given an income, and subsequently benefit from training that can provide them careers, as well as a roof over their heads. I’m not saying this is the perfect solution. Being homeless provides those of criminal nature excellent recruiting resource for crime. We need to stop this. We are doing nothing to redirect our homeless to a better place. I don’t believe all these people really want to be homeless, but there has to be a place for them to go that can provide for them and their families. Re-open a couple military bases. Those that cannot be absorbed by the military might find the expansion of civilian support retail in the area a viable place to get a job.

Again, I may not have an ideal solution. What we are doing presently is not working. If this idea only took 25 percent of the homeless of the street, even if only on a temporary basis, it would serve a more positive result than all the present efforts combined. Just my opinion. If you have a better opinion please tell us about it

A Unarmed White Man Shot by a Black Cop!

Did you hear about it, me neither! I was reading an article in some news rag that discussed this incident. It seems a Black Female Police Officer shot a unarmed White guy and nobody gave a damn about it. Had this been a White Cop shooting a Black person there would of been riots in the streets, even if the Black guy was armed and had dead babies hanging from his belt.

The fact that the Officer shot the unarmed White guy and was later to be determined a good shoot isn’t the issue. In my opinion it doesn’t matter the color of your skin, cops are not paid to fight every person out there that doesn’t want to comply. If a guy is going to fight a cop, he has every intent to hurt the cop. Of course use of less than lethal means need to be attempted first, but if they don’t work or the cop isn’t provided the opportunity . . .

What America has to realize is that everything that is or has happened to Black people also happens to White people and the 13 percent of the population is Black as a claim for the Black people being more abused than Whites, is an absolute lie. How can you have cities that has 30 to 60 percent Black, use 13 percent as the qualifier? The Washington Post is responsible for this lie. We all know racism and civil unrest sells newspapers, but why is almost all of America so gullible? For the record there are still more White people killed by cops in the U.S., White people just assume the White guy had it coming to him. You don’t see anybody marching in the street over a White person. But, shouldn’t there be more people marching the streets when it happens toa White guy?

As I was saying, everything that Black people have been suffering, there are white folk suffering through it too. But nobody cares to gather the data to show it White people don’t want to know that there are White people that aren’t affluent, educated, and have good family backgrounds. And, none of the other races care if White people suffer anything. Even if it is only 1 or 2 percent of the White populace in this suffering, 1 percent of White people is a much larger number than 1 percent of the Black populace.

So why isn’t anybody else saying this? It could be Whites not wanting to know who is suffering and everybody else not caring if Whites suffer, or not. Or, it could be America is afraid of the Black man. Or, it could be people are making big bucks off racism. Look around, how many people, business, and politicians are riding on the racial divide like it is their road to riches? Because it is! They have a meal ticket and an agenda designed to destroy America.

People in this Country have been lied to so much, that they believe the lies. People are making money off of racial issues, lots of money. And it is all bullshit because nobody is actually doing the research to speak on the topic competently. And, many people won’t even try to discuss these matters unless their opinion meets the status quo. Anybody that does have other opinion haws to worry about reprisal from their jobs to their community. Opposing opinions are quickly forced to shut up, stores quit carrying products from those of different opinion, employers terminate employment of those in conflict with the accepted norm, and so on and so on. And people believe in social media as though it gospel, while more false information is spread through social media than any where else.

Were we wrong to believe the Internet was going to provide us with the necessary information to make informed decision on important matters? The Internet has provided the hatemongers media to spread hate and discontent. I think the problem is, people find it easier to follow than to research for the truth.

Our society has made it uncool to be a White man when every issue raised by other races is championed in one way or another by White people. You may want to hate a White man from years long passed, but why do you hate those that do not follow their forefathers racial hatred to today? How is hate due to the color of my skin, any different than hate due to your skin color? I was reading an article the other day about White organizations, why is it acceptable to have Black, Hispanic, Indian, Chinese, or other race organization but not acceptable to have a White organization? Do we make the assumption that a White organization would support racism any more than the other race organizations? Why is it unacceptable for White people to have an organization that supports their heritage?

Every organization that has a race as part of their name promotes racism. Why? Because just by the name use of race it suggests that the organization is race motivated. And, every such organization should be removed from our society, to be replaced by organizations that support those in need regardless of skin color, and run by people that have the ability to respond to needs rather than skin color.

The answer is simple . . . In order for our society to move forward without ongoing racial divide, we as a society and as a people have to mature beyond skin color, practice equality, and be respectful of one-another. Our Government cannot do this. We need to do this, and it has to be done by all races. It isn’t so hard to do. Just mature beyond skin color and practice being color-blind and equality. Although our Government does not recognize the phrase “All Men are Created Equal” as a Constitutional Right. (The phrase was first used by I believe Hamilton in the Declaration of Independence) we as a people have to and we need to do so strongly, supported by all races. I suppose a better explanation of what I mean here would help. How about, there is no superior race, we are all men of equality.

Racism Through Reparations . . .

The State of California is about to give over $200,000.00 to each Black person qualifying for reparations living in California. This means that California Tax Payers are going to have to foot the bill to pay this benefit, making almost every Black person in the State wealthy while leaving the lower economics of the State to the White and Hispanic races. Why? Because politicians are ignorant regarding race and because most of our citizens are sheep believing almost anything they are told relevant to race, without ever researching the information for any form of validation.

The U.S. has long used racism as a cause of Black people not being treated fairly, paid equally, or facing daily adversity. But what they have failed to do is look at the entire situation. The common percentage mathmatics provide us numbers that do not tell the true answers to our questions.

The Washington Post database which says Blacks make up approximately 13 percent of the U.S. population and that the Blacks realize abuse by authorities at a much higher rate than their 13 percent should tells only a portion of the story. What it fails to tell you is that Black people do not live everywhere in the U.S. and based on the community Blacks do in fact prove to be between 23 and 60 percent. Which means using the 13 percent rule of measurement fails to demonstrate the true facts, more Whites than Blacks are subject to abuse by authorities. But nobody tells you that!

As far as the financial breakdown of the races, there is no database I have yet to have found that gives a true calculation of the White race. Every other race can be determined but for some reason the White race data does not reveal itself. The only thing I can come up with is these databases do not want to demonstrate the true data they show. But, my findings are possibly indicative of the need for additional research because nothing demonstrates the true picture presently.

In 2019 21.2 percent of Blacks were living at poverty level. 21.2 percent is approximately 8,244,000 Blacks. During the same time year 9 percent of the White population was at poverty level. 9 percent is approximately 17,328,200 Whites. But even more surprising is that 17.2 of Hispanic were poverty level. 17.2 percent is approximately 10,174,200 Hispanics. By the numbers, there are more White people living in poverty than any other race. By percentage Hispanics are the highest percentage living in poverty. Clearly Blacks are not the big winner for poverty level.

It is my contention that this reparations based on skin color does not demonstrate the true facts. I believe the key factors of those in poverty outweigh skin color and that were the data compiled it would show that everything, each item claimed as suffered by Blacks was and is still being suffered by every other race in this Country. People find it hard to believe that Whites are denied housing, education, health care, or other benefit . . . but it is true. America does not want people to know how many Whites are subjected to these same issues. To bring this information to the surface would mean America is failing to be the America it has claimed to be.

Back to reparations. California is ready to give millions of dollars to Black people not given the same opportunities as Whites, for the same sufferings in which Whites were not given the same opportunities as more affluent Whites. Does anybody see the buildup for more racial discord between the races?

Now factor in the Civil War, the war to free the slaves. America is calling for reparations to benefit Blacks whose family were slaves. But were the slaves the only peoples that suffered? How about the men that fought to free the slaves and the families that lost family members and subsequent opportunity lost to their children and their children? How many White people have suffered since that time simply because they support equality? You see, many people have suffered, not just Blacks. Keep in mind that no forward motion in effort to bring about equality has been done without White participation.

What benefit does reparations provide? Other than making some Black people more affluent than they presently are and creating a need for taxation to foot the bill, it does nothing but serve as an insult to others that have suffered in effort of equality. Reparations are not equality. Reparations are specific precluding participation of other races that have suffered loss similar to Black people without consideration by our Government or the people writing such into law.

Is this going to create racial disharmony? More than anything it will be compiled with all the other benefits afforded the Blacks without inclusion of the other races and it will bring about anger. And when people of all colors in this Country get angry enough to seek the truth and discover that those making money from our racial divide are the problem. If our politicians would pay attention and quit serving a single race at the cost of another race could certainly serve to benefit all of us. But Political America and Corporate America fear the Black man and do not want to let the world know that White America is suffering like everybody else, so we will suffer the lies they use to justify it, while they continue to create racial discord for us all. For those of us seeking an end to racism, it will create additional set back but we will continue seeking equality for all while hoping for the maturity to become color-blind for one and all.

Damn, I Wish I Weren’t White . . .

A Washington Examiner headline, “Poll shows hiring managers discriminating against white men” caught my eye this morning. It comes at a time when being a White man seems a little unpopular. But is it fair? If the Black percentage of the population is around 13 percent, doesn’t that mean they should have about 13 percent of the jobs?

In the 2015-2016 television season, 74.6 percent of roles for cable scripted shows went to white actors, whilst 13.3 percent went to black actors, and just 2.6 percent to Asian actors.” Okay, this seems about right, or does it?

The majority of TV newsroom employees in the United States in 2020 were white, with African American staff and Hispanic and Latino employees making up less than 25 percent of the total. The survey projected that the share of Hispanic and Latino employees would increase slightly in 2021 but the forecasted percentage remains under 13 percent.” Somebody works with the same math I do.

  
Employed persons by detailed occupation, sex, race, and Hispanic origin <-This link goes to the actual data page

And, I can keep going down the list. The end column at the far right is the percentage of Black people in that occupation. Don't take my word for it, follow the link above to go to the actual data page. My point is Black people actually populate our workforce in some very good numbers. Add professional sports players and entertainers figures to this and I believe you will find that Black people have a bunch of the good paying jobs, exceeding the 13 percent  discussed above.

Now, we go and turn the apple-cart upside down because folks out there are making their living off of racism telling people that are too lazy a bunch of lies and unfairly taking jobs from the White man. I find this offensive as fuck!

I have never taken any opportunity away from anybody. Never owned a slave. Don't care what color your skin is. And, I have never taken the food off another mans table based on the color of his skin. Corporate America is afraid off the Black man, so instead of doing the right thing and ensuring that their hiring practices are color-blind, they turn around and do the opposite and create a new racial issue.

Listen up folks . . . We are where we are today because folks are making money off racism, and we keep letting them do it. It's not hard to recognize men as equals and if you can mature enough to be color-blind most issues will resolve themselves. Folks out there that can't mature to that level, are the problem. They come in all colors and they aren't helping nobody, but themselves at our expense. Corporations, Politicians, Government is so busy trying to make new racial issues that they can't see they are the problem. If they would have treated men as equals a long time ago, we would be in a much better place today . . . 

Father Kills 2 Year-old Son . . .

That isn’t the actual headline of the story. But, it is true. The headline read: N.C. Boy, 2, Finds Loaded Gun in Front Seat of Truck and Kills Himself, and Father Faces Charges . And the father should face charges, murder chargers. It’s the same story over and over again. Somebody doesn’t secure their weapon properly, and someone gets killed because of it. The true problem in this case as is in many, a child gets dead. You have to ask yourself, what kind of jackass parent leaves a loaded gun where a 2 year-old kid can get access to it? While we are asking questions, why was he even carrying a gun in the first place?

I think we are seeing a pattern developing here. Parents cannot handle being parents so they have found a way to eliminate children. No, that is likely not the case. But can you think of any reason to endanger your children that qualifies as important or threatening enough that you need carry a gun?

Guns are a necessary evil in many of our lives. But the necessity has never included the killing of your own child due to gun owner negligence Yet it seems as though we hear it almost daily. With gun ownership comes responsibility. If you own it, you are responsible for any mis-use of it. If you are stupid enough to not secure it and it gets used in a mass shooting or even ends in the death of your own child, you are the one that made it happen, you are the one needs to be charged with committing the crime.

And I hope they throw the fucking book at you!

The Halloween, that wasn’t . . .

Have we already lost to those who wish us a lack of fun and lost imagination? Have they sufficiently beat us down so far that we cannot go into our city streets and have fun anymore? What has happened to the land that I love? What has happened to the people that used to live in this Country that enjoyed the party, the costumes, and the thrill of having our hearts beating in fear of something or someone hiding in the dark?

You may not have missed Halloween last night. If you were lucky and the Halloweens’ found you, tell em I miss em.

Wait, what the hell am I supposed to do with all this candy? I am diabetic, I cannot eat all this (munch, munch, burp . . .) candy! Diabetic Coma, here I come. You know, I only bought candy that I liked. Stuff like “Reese Peanut Butter Cups,” “3 Musketeers,” and “HoHo’s.” And, I bought gobs of it. I can swim in Peanut Butter and Chocolate for the next week if I want.

Man, I hope Turkey Day and Christmas doesn’t pass me by . . . Oh Santa?

Wait! I know somebody had a Halloween! So long as there be ex-wives and mothers-in-law, there be witches!

The State of America . . .

I read an article in a news publication today in which people were asked to say what they thought of the state of America today using one word. Let it suffice to say, there were very few favorable responses and no visible argument to the negativity noted. Why? What has happened to America? Has America become both financially and morally bankrupt? Has the Pandemic destroyed the heart of America? Has racial divide and failure of us to educate our young brought about the end of peace on our streets? What exactly has happened to America?

The Pandemic brought about a lot of loss. Family, friends, and neighbors suddenly were sick or dead. We were unable to be in close contact with others which for many is a human need. When we did go out into the community again it waws with a mask covering our face. Our neighbors and friends fought over this requirement in public stores and streets largely because of misinformation passed on social media. Dis-trust of our Government grew significantly day-by-day, and nothing could be done to stop the downhill trend not to believe in Government. This dis-trust continues today because our Government to date has failed to identify the source of the Covid-19 virus that almost killed a Nation that has done nothing to discover the reasons why.

A Nation of unemployed supported by Government with far too much time on their hands as Pandemic restrictions eased allowed the growth of criminal activity on our streets, followed by the unfortunate death of George Floyd while in police custody on a public street brought racial tensions to the top of our Nations issues as well as the crippling of our police departments across the Nation. Presently, crime has increased to such a degree that our city streets are unsafe even during daylight hours Police Officers disheartened by cries of the public to “defund the police” and the inability of Government to acquire enough recruits to fill the required police officer employees, has left police departments unable to meet the challenges of fighting crime in our neighborhoods to the extreme that store closures are necessary due to rampant theft.

Inmates that were released from our prisons and jails control our streets with the help of local street thugs that even when law enforcement catches them, are back on the streets within hours leaving the community living in fear. People that had previously lived a life of lawful living suddenly found the only way to prosper in life was to take what you wanted, has begun to do so. Even in the best of neighborhoods, crime riddles the streets and fear of “home-invasion” is real While it has in the past been offensive to declare “martial law” to protect the community, may become necessity in the near future.

Failure of “gun owners” to properly secure their weapons continues to be a primary factor in many school mass shootings, and other shootings of our children. And, no matter how loud it is hollered people still cannot hear our pleas to “please secure your guns.” Our Government still fails to prosecute gun owners for the mis-use of their guns by others, even when negligence by the gun owner is obvious continues. Parents as well as children fear school days and wait for the dreaded call of an incident at their local schools. On the adult venue, people no longer feel safe attending events such as concerts, fairs, or even movies.

I have to stop writing this. The negativity compiled by simply writing this thus far, hurts. Where is this headed? How and to what degree are we going to have to go to defend ourselves? This is not the America I grew up in nor the America our children should live in. You see, the previous paragraphs written are just the tips of the ice-berg. I could write for days on this topic and not repeat the same concern twice. I’m unsure of whom to point a finger at to blame for the state of America today, without the finger eventually pointing back at myself, as in all of us. And to make things even worse, I cannot think of a single thing to say good on this topic . . .
