Yesterday I went through my day as I always do.
The pursuit of happiness to the best of my ability through hard work, saving my money, and being beneficial to others.
Throughout the day the radio brought me propaganda about unisex bathrooms, the rights of “refugees” and “immigrants” and incessant noise about free college and why everyone deserves health care.
I guess the most important issue “climate change” wasn’t so important anymore…at least not yesterday.
Now for those of you who know me personally or have been here with me for a while you know I move with a purpose and a big smile on my face.
I believe in leading by example and positive energy.
I also believe in the very simple message of love God love one another.
With that said neither of my cheeks will ever turn allowing abuse to myself or anyone around me.
I believe in grace not victimization.
Even though many of you in California and around the country sent letters requesting I be put on the stage at the Senate Debate last night our collective voices to have an Independent up there was ignored.
Instead a third Republican was put on the stage.
Yes a third Republican…in California.
It appears UOP has already chosen their candidates.
Can you guess which Party?
For those not familiar with the process in California only two make it to the General Election.
As I watched the debate last night my slow burn began.
On the stage were five individuals who have taken money (campaign contributions) are willing to take more (salary, benefits, retirement) and will do it as long as they can.
My burn increased as I listened to individuals who support CAIR, La Raza, and crushing debt.
I listened to humans who have zero understanding of human behavior or intrinsic motivators.
I listened as the stage filled with “I” statements and braggadocio.
They sounded exactly like…Politicians.
This of course isn’t new to any of us.
We’ve been so saturated by this behavior many have simply returned to the message of the Sixties.
Live for the now.
Tune in, turn on, drop out.
There is a new name now for irresponsible behavior that leads to millions of humans now unwilling to take care of themselves.
YOLO…or You Only Live Once.
Unfortunately too many have lived this way for too long and now want the rest of us to carry them the rest of their lives.
What’s even worse is this message of rationalization and justification has seeped into the upcoming generations.
So let us be clear.
You cannot borrow your way to financial freedom.
You cannot smoke, inhale, imbibe, or consume your way to emotional and biological health.
You must engage in only three practices to find success.
SAVE your money.
Be beneficial to OTHERS.
As I turned off the television last night I thought about everything I just listened to.
The same talking points from two Parties (one who doesn’t exist in California).
No one was willing to take on our two real problems.
Human Trafficking through our open border.
As the stage was filled with nonsensical verbiage and economic absurdity more women and children were trafficked and sold in both directions through the magnet for crime known as our Southern Border.
More rapes, murders, and molestation continued and continue every day while Politicians talk about bathrooms.
It’s time we tune in to the truth and turn on to reality.
Dropping out isn’t going to be an option for too much longer…if you require Freedom.
Regardless the smile on my face has disappeared.
It’s been replaced with rage as the border costs more lives of those who don’t have the option of “dropping out” while these Politicians talk about “rights”…and bathrooms.
