Recently an article hit the internet proclaiming the life span of some Americans to be growing shorter.
Eight years of the Obama/Pelosi/Reid cocktail coupled with a Ryan/McConnell chaser can do that to a person.
Of course it is easy to take shots at evil and cowardice.
What isn’t easy is its removal.
It should be.
It really should be.
I’m having a Sally Field flashback.
Sadly the aforementioned names have more in common with the DNA of a cockroach than a human attempting to Be.
Why is this?
The need to belong is only surpassed in importance to survival by water, food, shelter, and security. (Abraham Maslow)
In that order.
With those needs met the human animal will seek somewhere to belong. When an appropriate atmosphere isn’t found an inappropriate one will be chosen. Some will point to young kids joining gangs. Although possible the more likely need being met by these kids is their need to be secure or even food and shelter.
A better example are the supporters of Bernie Sanders, La Raza, Black Lives Matter, etc.
The individuals making up these groups are devolving rapidly in regards to the Homo Sapien species.
That seems to be a harsh statement Jason.
It isn’t harsh at all. It is true and one of the reasons Americans aren’t living as long anymore.
When one stops requiring facts everything after that is a mess someone else will have to endure and probably clean up.
Then again if the pace isn’t quickened in parts of Detroit, Mother Nature will shoulder the burden, as I have personally witnessed.
Any house built on a weak foundation, or no foundation at all, will always crumble, usually wreaking havoc on other individuals who are in its proximity.
BLM members make statements like hands up don’t shoot (a lie) or facts don’t matter when it comes to race.
To critically thinking evolving humans, facts are the only thing that matters, regardless of the subject.
La Raza followers scream about “racism” and bigotry while calling themselves “The Race” in Spanish.
These are the kinds of minds that would load six bullets into a six shooter and then play “Russian Roulette”.
“Some Americans aren’t living as long.”
Forty years of obesity, drug and alcohol abuse, crushing debt, sexual promiscuity, and the rise of government programs will shorten the span of life?
Of course millions seem to not grasp proper nutrition, sleep, work, exercise, a sober mind and individual responsibility are the catalysts to evolution and longer life.
How do we know this?
Bernie Sanders still has followers, Bill and Hillary Clinton still have freedom, and Keith Ellison wants to run the Democratic Party.
An atheist who believes women fantasize about being raped simultaneously by three men endorsed a criminal whose husband has actually raped women. This trio is being joined by a man who called for black humans to have their own land where peaceful whites would be allowed. Aside from the peaceful whites there is a place like this.
It’s called Liberia although I’m not sure if they would welcome a Sunni Muslim with open arms due to an issue called slavery.
These four aren’t the problem.
They are symptoms.
The problem lies in the lack of common sense, courage, and compassion found in their followers and their unwillingness to search out and find appropriate situations in which to belong.
Getting high, sleeping around, and wishing they’d had an abortion isn’t going to do it.
Socrates was right.
Democracy does lead to Tyranny.
I guess the good news for the Democrats is they won’t be living as long.
