A Random Smattering of Thought

Warning:  This will probably piss someone off.

So lately, I have seen a lot of things in the media that make me grin.  A lot of…Slacktivism, I believe that is the term they use these days.  For instance, three months ago, NO ONE gave a shit about the confederate flag.  I mean, they did, but clearly not that much.  Case in point….How many black politicians walked in and out of the South Carolina government buildings that had that flying on/in front of it?  Exactly.  Am I saying it was right to fly it there?  No.  I think it belongs in a museum.  Then suddenly, some fuckstick loses his damn mind and the media pushes some agenda to make ratings and money off all of us mindless goons that suddenly gave a shit.  Next in line?  How about a lion….In Africa….where they hunt these animals regularly to control population…any takers here?  No?  Oh, now I’m an indecent human?  Fuck you, you hippocrit.  We all knew, to some degree, that they hunted these animals.  Do I agree with over hunting?  No.  In a controlled manner to maintain balance?  Yes.  I know what you are thinking.  “This guy is an asshole.  He doesn’t care about anything but himself, the selfish racist cracker.”  But let me tell you a secret.  I am white, like mostly German/Hungarian white.  Am I a racist?  No.  Don’t believe me?  Ask the curator of this fine editorial machine.  I just get tired of the never-ending cycle perpetuated by both sides of the battle.  I have yelled at my neighbors kids for saying “nigga”, “nigger”, and any other variant of that dumb ass word within ear shot of my family.  Why?  Because it is only continuing the cycle of stupidity that is racism.  Racism is taught, not genetic.  The only thing my kids hate right now are naps.  So yes, I politely ask them to not say it.  Not only for my kids, but also because a 12-year-old sounds just as stupid saying it as a 35-year-old.  Then, my favorite topic is people making excuses for EVERY-FUCKING-THING.  Listen people, nobody gives a shit about how your bunions are keeping you from walking around the block, or how you have no time to hit the gym, or how the government is keeping you from achieving your goals.  If you want something bad enough, go out and get that shit.  Man, or woman, the fuck up and do it.  I make time to hit the gym at 5 AM, so that I don’t miss time with my family.  If you have the idea to do something, you are already half-way to achieving your goal.  Now get up and do it.  Don’t like living in a trailer?  Bust your ass, find an education, get a better job and do better than that.  The only thing keeping most people from success is a lack of discipline.  Motivation is only going to get you started.  Discipline is going to help you finish.  This is something we should all teach our kids.  But most of us won’t.  We will sit back, expect a free handout, and bitch when it’s not enough.  College students are becoming homeless because they think a college degree is a free pass to that cozy job in an office making $90K a year.  Yet, when they don’t get it, they live with mommy and daddy instead of getting whatever job happens to come their way.  May I remind you that America got to this point on the backs of some very hard-working, intelligent men and women, who were not afraid to put some manual labor in.  YOU ARE NOT ABOVE SWEATING FOR A DOLLAR!  Let that sink in.  I am currently in training with two men that hold PH.D.’S IN PHYSICS AND LAW!  Get the fuck over yourself America.  Learn to sweat and you will succeed.  Remain on that cushy couch your Momma bought you from Wal-Mart and you will condemn yourself to a life of servitude.

Just a guy with some years on him that calls it like I see it. My opinions my be offensive to some and funny to others. My goal is not to offend but to create asymmetric thought. So, if you’re offended…oh well. Maybe you deserved it.
