The days of old my friends have passed and quite frankly, the new generation doesn't seem to comprehend that everything costs something. I never understood how adults could want less freedom than a child would. Ask a child...any child...'would you like more rules that keep you inside and away from all the fun things you like?', and that child would most assuredly tell you they would like less rules so they could run and play and not worry about stranger danger but just be a kid. Yet here we are watching adults demand more rules when they don't even follow the ones, they have already voted in.
People get frustrated with me when I talk to them about seat belts laws or smoking laws and now, we are looking at infringements on every aspect of our freedoms. Sometimes if you take baby steps you can get a lot further than running so fast that people notice you and stop you along the way. That's what has been happening for years with our lawmakers. Bit by bit we have surrendered. I get it, we hate when something causes harm to a loved one but changing laws every time something happens doesn't make it any better. It still happens and people hardly even go to jail for it nowadays anyways. Accountability has been thrown to the wayside. Perhaps changing people might help though. Something tells me I'd rather be blinded by the Light than the dark and I am afraid that this darkness has fallen upon many.
Now, let's look at why.... some psychotropics to alter one's mind are being prescribed like candy. Statistics show that 1 out of every 6 Americans is on some kind of anxiety medicine. Imagine that folks! That many people think they can't handle life. I hate to be the barer of bad news, but life can stink sometimes. That's the way it works but the new generation is mind weakened by drugs.
Then we have the population of people who statistics can't even seem to zero in on.... the underworld drug world... the synthetic drugs being the most fatal and causing nearly 92,000 deaths in 2020 and the rest who use, you can find in almost any type of household, no family is immune, yet our borders sit wide open for more illegals to bring in more drugs that will destroy the lives of our children and grandchildren. Addiction takes hold of them and only the strong will overcome its powers. Many will become a part of the increase of those 92,000 deaths. And yet, we welcome the darkness in.
So, now we have the next group of lost in space and don't be offended if you find yourself here. Remember, I didn't put you here, you did. Alcohol is not your friend, even though you may think otherwise. Take it from someone who doesn't drink. There's nothing pretty about anyone intoxicated. And yea, I know you think that they are laughing with you. But darling, they're laughing at you. I can't comprehend it really because I have always had the desire to know what was going on in my surroundings and I am glad I am that type. Shucks, I have a hard enough time trying to remember where my keys are without clouding my busy brain with things that could only make it worse.
Now that you see that more than half this country is medicated, either by physician or self-administered drugs, which includes alcohol then perhaps you see why we're in the mess we're in. I get it, some folks are in real need. Most are being pacified..... You can be compassionate without being enabling. And one can be happy without something that overshadows their true ability to reach happiness but the choice to do so must be made. I personally, would advise that you include God on that venture. Should the time come where you can no longer carry on.... lucky for you there will still be One set of footprints in the sand. Yes, He will carry you through.
With that being said, maybe that's why people haven't noticed the empty shelves and the high gas prices. You see, that doesn't affect them, small fees for bus fare to the food bank line and they really don't have to worry about it. Except for perhaps if people who expect you to work are elected in..... then there's a danger. A danger of not getting everything you want from a system that can't afford it and then offering it to the ones who brought your child or grandchild's fatal overdose into this country. I mean you'd have to be on drugs to think this is okay. You'd have to be on drugs to vote for anyone who steals freedoms from Americans and thinks handouts will make up for our rights that are being stolen away. The days of old have surely passed my friends, heroism has been tossed by the wayside and pansy~ism has become a real word.
In closing, I merely want to point out that no one is promised tomorrow and the only day you can truly be sure you have made a difference is today and each day you get the opportunity to live after that. The world has gone mad, people dwell on grudges and bitterness and hold on to things that aren't holding them up. If you ask me, it's time to put the clip boards away and tell these crybabies to "suck it up, Buttercup". Because the sea sometimes has waves and if you don't learn how to ride them... you're going to get sucked into the sea...... that's just the way it is.
And Americans...We The People already understand this....it's helping the medicated to comprehend, which is the true task that lies ahead.
