The Pres speech was playing on my phone. I wasn’t paying attention to it. The 8-year old walks in, puts her hands on her hips and says “WHY are you listing to that?”
“Because I want to know what people are going to criticize and maybe be I want to criticize too.”
She snubs me and walks out. I’m like, WHAT she has a political opinion? Kids know a whole lot more then we did at that age ain’t it. Information overload maybe. At 8-years old I just wanted to go out and play. I would have rather been outside sitting up in a tree if no one was around to play with. At that age I had no clue about who was President, much less have any kind of political opinion.
I do know that what I was listening too did not sound Presidential. It did not sound inspiring. It did not sound motivating. It did not sound like a leader. Other people may think other wise and I wonder, sometimes are we listening to the same person. It’s interesting how people listen to the very same thing and come up with totally different opinions. That’s what makes life interesting.
It’s okay to have difference of opinion, it’s not okay to act like your opinion is more valid than others. Your opinion is right, therefore the others must be wrong. Yeah we should all get along like kooombayuh. That is the right thing to do. But that’s not how life goes huh?
There is always contrary people, the negative ones, the violent ones, the ignorant ones, the clueless ones, the crazy ones, the sicko ones, the overly zealous, bigoted et al. Humans are so predictably unpredictable. AND then you put a bunch of like minded (fill in the blankety blank) a lot of time all hell breaks loose. So then the authorities are there to “keep the peace” and they have their marching orders and they have a job to do. AND sometimes they get over zealous, blah blah blah…. they are trying to do the right thing, but humans being humans, the predictabley unpredictable happens. AND the good guys get into doing bad things because bad things are happening all around them…. AND so goes the vicious cycle….
Me I’m home watching it on TV. Asking questions and getting no answers, oh right I’m by myself. LOL Like, why weren’t there any pictures/shots of the crowd in the Convention Center? Uusally at least one camera does a panoramic of the crowd, right? Hmmmm Why was there only one Black guy sitting in the peanut gallery behind the speaker. Did he not have a date, his friends didn’t want to come, what? Another story there. Google him. Interesting. 🙂
Where was all the torch carriers? Maybe the TV stations did not cover certain sections of the crowd. I only saw what the TV stations want to show. I saw one interesting video post on Facebook where the Native Bird Singers were singing and others dancing. The News did not cover that either or I just didn’t see it.
While people are hemming & hawing about this that or the other, I’m still waiting for tax returns and golden shower videos.
Be Blessed (\O/)
