Let’s just review some of the things that have happened since the beginning of the year 2020. Put on a mask. Stay at home. Stay six feet apart. Close down the country. Call “criminals” “protesters.” Get people used to virus testing. Change rules over night. Allow people to tear down statues and deface government property. Prosecute citizens for practicing their Constitutional rights. Apologize for history. Set up check-points. Let citizens have a taste of what it is like to depend on the country for capital. Eliminate small businesses through a financial crunch. Shut down religious gatherings. It’s not even the middle of August and all of the aforementioned has already happened.
I fear that in many ways it is already too late. I’m fifty-six years old and am clearly playing the back nine in life. I don’t wanna be bothered. I wanna be left alone. I have a few things left on my list in life. Number one is getting my eighty year old mother out of Florida and back here in Cleveland with family. I never used to think that way. I used to sneak out of the house as a kid just to get away from her. Funny what happens when you get older and seek wisdom.
I thought I made the correct decision in choosing Willoughby, Ohio as my final destination. I was wrong. Corruption and deceit is alive and well here in this small town. Is it everywhere and we never noticed? Where should you look for it first? Is it already too late?? I wish I had the answers because I clearly missed the first round of questions.
Freedom of speech. Many soldiers have lost their lives defending that right yet we have become a nation that is afraid to voice their opinion for the fear of offending others. An opinion is just that…no matter how absurd it may be it really can’t be wrong to the person who voices it. What also disturbs me is that people no longer seem to respect the opinion of others and that’s probably the number one reason no one seems to communicate any more.
I’ll throw a few things at ya right now so I’m not a hypocrite. I don’t think we went to the moon. Our President is a socialist. Gay marriage is fine with me and I don’t think it’s a chosen lifestyle at all. I strongly believe in the second amendment. I think the police are corrupt and don’t trust them one bit. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are racists. Pat Robertson is nuts. I think marijuana and prostitution should be legalized. It’s sad that Trayvon Martin lost his life but I agree with the jury. I’m a man and I don’t think I have the right to tell a woman what to do with her body…hence I believe in the woman’s right to choose. I think Affirmative Action is ridiculous….try applying that to the NBA. If you get attacked by a shark I won’t feel sorry for ya—YOU chose to go into the water. Democracy works for us but we have no right insisting other countries change their government….it’s no wonder we are hated around the world.
Those are just some of the things I believe in at this moment. I’m not gonna hide from my opinion because I want to hear yours. Civil communication and mutual respect need to return to our society. If you don’t agree with that….I guess you’ll defriend me on facebook :).

The jury will soon decide the fate of George Zimmerman. I have watched probably half of this trial and both sides really sickened me. The reality of the situation is this trial has become a trial about race and not if one man was within his rights of shooting another. Trayvon Martin has a right to walk around a neighborhood. George Zimmerman has the same right and it is not against the law to follow someone. The only question here is did Trayvon Martin attack George Zimmerman. If he did, and George Zimmerman felt his life was in danger, there is a Stand Your Ground law here in Florida that says you are allowed to shoot someone. That’s the bottom line. It’s not about race it’s about if one man had the right to take the life of another man.
Somehow the media and our President don’t even understand this. When President Obama said “If I had a son he would look like Trayvon” he brought race into an already flammable situation. It’s truly sad that a life was lost but the last thing the leader of our country should do is get involved in a legal situation that has yet to be resolved. The media have also fanned the flames of the race issue. This isn’t even “white versus black”—-George Zimmerman is Hispanic. If anyone brings race into this issue then they are guilty of racism as well. This is about two human beings. Color and ethnicity make no difference to a beating heart. If it’s so simple to me then why is it so difficult for those of supposed expertise in this matter?
Don’t get me started on the media. We live in an age of “If it bleeds it leads.” I firmly believe the media not only wants a “not guilty” verdict they want people to riot. If there are burning buildings and chaos we will all run to the TV to watch. No one will flip on the news in mass if all is calm and civil. We, as a nation, have truly become “The Truman Show.”
Gun control to me is the same as idiot control. There really isn’t a way to control either. The secret is keeping the guns out of the hands of idiots or avoiding idiots all together. Neither is a realistic situation because it just won’t happen. Look at the war on drugs. We aren’t winning. We are guarding the borders and prosecuting people for what is already legal in three states. Where is the logic there?
I have five guns. I ‘m also a responsible gun owner. I don’t think it’s correct to penalize the rights of the many for the actions of the few. If some idiot is gonna break into my home at night I want to at least have a level playing field. I’m also not a registered marksman so I’m not sure how many shots I’ll need to insure my safety but you can rest assure I won’t stop pulling that trigger until the clip is empty.
Those that favor gun control usually don’t have guns. I understand why you would be in favor of banning something that doesn’t matter to you. I feel the same way about cauliflower. If you put some of that crap on my plate I probably would wait at least five days to eat it. Instead of taking away from those that obey the law let’s concentrate on stopping those that break the law.
