Last Friday was very emotional for anyone that has a heart and a conscious. It was the nineteenth anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center by Islamic terrorists. One of my most vivid memories of that time was actually September 12, 2001 and beyond. No one cared about what color your skin was or what God you worshiped. There was one race….the human race. People were flying American flags outside their cars. Today there are those that choose to burn and stomp on that very same flag. The police and fire departments across the nation were hailed as heroes. Today they are randomly attacked by members of Black Live Matter and Antifa. I’m tired of the disrespect and rioting and vandalism. Our country has been taken over from within by various social terrorist organizations. There comes a time when people have had enough and they start to fight back to protect their family and property. That time is now.

It’s not going to get any better until we get tough. This past weekend two Los Angeles police officers were shot in the face for doing nothing but protecting citizens of their city. These thugs and animals then proceeded to block the entry of the emergency vehicles to the local hospital while yelling “We hope they die.” This is not “protesting.” It’s the deepest level of barbaric behavior that has no place in a civilized society.

How many more buildings will be set on fire? How many more stores will be destroyed? How many more members of the Police will be injured during these senseless criminal activities? What we allow we teach. It’s time for this parade of fools to end. Let’s take back our country. Let’s really show others that we never forgot!!

death-penalty

Funny thing that happens as you get older….you actually do get smarter.  Knowledge is the key to faith and in order to obtain knowledge you have to seek wisdom.  When you are open to obtaining wisdom you must realize that you may understand things that used to confuse you and your opinions on “things you have figured out” might just change.  That happened to me recently on my view of the death penalty.

I recently took a two week sabbatical away from the news and social media and I read the Bible.  Parts of the Old Testament were not easy for me but it answered a lot of questions that I had been pondering.  I used to be for the death penalty but now I am against it.  First of all the criminal justice system fails more than you know.  A LOT of people incarcerated are the victims of a bad judge, a greedy prosecutor and an inexperienced defense attorney or a combination of all three.  If innocent citizens are in jail then there is a pretty good chance an innocent life has already been taken.

You may argue in the Bible it says “An eye for an eye.”  It also says “Turn the other cheek” and “Vengeance Belongs To God.”  We are not God.  We should not play God.  For these simple reasons I believe life was given by God and shall be taken by Him as well.  Thanks for reading.

Trust

Like a baby that doesn’t know the meaning of “hot” until they burn their hand on a stove, one doesn’t truly appreciate the meaning and value of the word “trust” until you have been misled, burned, lied to or a combination of all three.  Luckily I have suffered through a numerous number of these episodes so that I can speak with confidence about how valuable and rare trust actually is.

Trust is earned.  It’s not something like a coupon for a five dollar pitcher of beer some local pub hands out to fans leaving a sporting event.  Think about your first day on the job.  Your employer will never be nicer to you than on that first day.  Three months later your supervisor is yelling at you in their office because they lost the “McPherson Project.”

Trust comes with time.  Think about the friends you had in your twenties and the friends you have today.  If one or more has survived then it’s probably because you trust them.  I have a close bunch of friends today and a lot of them are my family and they are few in number because the others violated my trust.  I was lied to, screwed over, used, taken advantage of…..you name it and I can name someone that did it to me.  I’m not the victim.  I was actually blessed to realize I don’t want or need these people in my life.

Trust actually defines the soul of the person.  I will be honest.  In my twenties I only cared about myself.  I would never extend my trust to a person like that.  Luckily we have time to learn and change.  It is during this time I think you develop your character.  Every day is an opportunity for you to grow.  Time doesn’t slow down when you get older….it actually seems to accelerate.  Take a moment today to do a self reflection on yourself.  Should YOU be trusted??  If not….you still have time to make that change.

2020 world

The re-opening of America has begun.  Fifty states….fifty governors…..fifty different ideas.  Some states will not be open until the end of June.  Some people wear masks.  Some people don’t.  We are not United….we have become the Divided States of America.

I’m gonna be fifty-six in a few weeks.  My habits and opinions have been formed and they are not gonna change.  I am in a high risk group and I don’t want to wear a mask.  I don’t like one way aisles in the grocery store.  I am anti-social by nature but I will never get used to social distancing.  I’m in my basement and I don’t really want to be a part of the world that awaits me outside of my home.

Sports have been cancelled.  The NFL season is in jeopardy.  There are rumors that the games will be played in empty stadiums.  I don’t want that.  I want the way it used to be.  I want it to be familiar to me.  I don’t want to adapt to the “new rules” and I won’t.  Some people will have a problem with what I say but a funny thing happened while I was getting older—suddenly we all don’t give a shit.  It’s refreshing.  All of a sudden you don’t have to keep track of all the lies you told to protect someone’s feelings.

I think this restart is gonna be a disaster.  No one is even close to being on the same page and everyone changes what they believe or what they want enforced on a daily basis.  I’m not sure what the future will bring so I am going back to what I know.  I am going back to what got me through fifty-five years on this earth.  I’m going back to the way I lived life in 2019.  Be safe friends.

life

I think we all have been doing a lot of reflecting in the past few months.  I left radio in 2011 and have been battling various health issues ever since.  Radio was fun…..key word there is “WAS.”  I am not bitter.  I played the cards I was dealt but with hindsight being 20/20 I made a lot of bad decisions.

I am a creative person by nature.  I love to speak and write.  I don’t take orders very well….I prefer to give them.  I had this luxury in radio and as long as I was left alone by management I was happy and successful.  Radio forced me to move around a lot.  I am now back in Cleveland because of family and good health care.  My eighty year old mother lives in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, I am not married and don’t have any pets or children.  My quest is to move mom here.

If I had to do it all over again I would have stayed here in Northeast Ohio.  This is home.  I ran away from all my problems when I was eighteen and now I’m back to make the best of the time I have left.  I should have paid more attention in high school.  I have been making up for lost time by watching a lot of documentaries and reading…..it’s not the same.  I had the chance…..I blew it.

I would have made a great attorney.  I’m a perfectionist and a workaholic.  I like to argue when I am confident of my beliefs…..be forewarned….I am very confident.  Life is short and you have only one chance.  When my time on Earth is done I hope I have made up enough of my “wasted time” to go to the next level……after all….isn’t that truly our main purpose in this world?  Thanks for reading.
