What has happened to this country?  At some point we have become a bunch of wussies.  Political correctness makes us afraid of one thing:  the truth.  I’ve always hated grey.  It’s black or white, good or bad, smart and stupid, you get the idea…..if not you’re pretty stupid.

Difference of opinion is good and it’s reality except people are in denial because they may be worried about losing a friend on facebook.  Everyone has a cause.  Something that they care deeply about.  If someone doesn’t share your passion that doesn’t mean they aren’t a supporter of your cause.  It just means it’s not necessarily a priority in their life and guess what?   That’s what makes us different and difference is good.  It makes people think.  It’s what makes us individuals.  It’s what separates us from being a robot.

I voted for Trump.  Some people will automatically say “You’re a racist.”  What???  I’m not a racist I just like the guy.  He won.  Get over it.  I don’t wave it in front of the faces of those that don’t like the guy cause I think that’s pretty immature but this isn’t about Trump.  It runs much deeper than that.  I just used that as an example.

Look……I’m 100 percent Polish and I love a good Pollock joke.  I don’t get mad or offended because it’s a freaking joke.  We need to laugh.  Life is tough.  Life is not always a mondo jovial type tundra.  Let’s say you spit in my face.  I’m offended and probably will punch you but there are people out there that actually believe you must have done something to provoke that action.  Amazing.  Here’s the truth:  There are a lot of assholes in this world.  I care about people and give everyone the benefit of the doubt but it’s not my job to fix an asshole.  An asshole comes in all colors, races, religions and political beliefs.

I know there are people that believe I’m an asshole but I can’t worry about that.  I like to laugh at myself and others but I also believe we need to be nice to each other.  Society has become a mass of fear.  This country was created by a mass of those with differences.  Life is short.  We make mistakes to learn.  I believe we have to get back to being different and not worrying what other people think.  That’s just my opinion and maybe that’s what makes me an asshole.  Thanks for reading.

Mass-ConfusionSo Rob O’Neil is the guy that allegedly put a bullet in Osama Bin Laden’s dome and he gave an interview to Fox News and a bunch of people are upset.  Maybe it’s just me but I wanna hear what this guy has to say rather than seeing the latest selfie Kim Kardashian has tweeted of her turn cutters hanging out.

I also wanna know why they dumped his corpse at sea so quickly.  Look….this is the US Government we are talking about.  They aren’t exactly truth mongers with us citizens.  I’m sure we could prop him up and drag him around the US on a mini-tour like “Weekend at Bernies.”   Have him be a guest host on “The Voice.”   Have a “Terrorist Week” on Jeopardy.  Let him drive a cab for a weekend in New York City.  The possibilities are endless.

I illustrate the absurd by being absurd for a reason.  The majority of Americans bitch about the economy and the direction this nation is headed but do they really spend the time studying what is happening with our government or are they more interested in the dilemma of if Bruce Jenner wants a vagina?

92 million Americans are out of the work force….that’s different than unemployment and far more concerning.  It is estimated that five out of ten jobs today will no longer exist in ten years but we all seem to be giddy about landing on a comet.  We can’t find a cure for cancer, ALS, AIDS etc., but we are kicking the tires of a rock a half a billion kilometers away just to find Jason Priestly’s career?

We are soooooo concerned about being politically correct when this country was built on being a melting pot of cultural differences.  Different is good.  It’s the yin to the yang.  It causes one to look at a different opinion and heaven forbid we LEARN from these situations.  I broke my iPhone this week, shattered the screen and the first thing I muttered was “Dumb Pollock.”  I didn’t expect Al Sharpton to show up at my door.  I didn’t print flyers or t-shirts or try and organize a march.  I went out and found a kid with greasy hair, bad skin, and lots of piercings and had him fix it.  I paid for his services with money that has “In God We Trust” on the back of it while many schools have banned the Pledge of Allegiance because it contains “One nation under God.”  If this country was a horse we would put it to sleep.  Wake up America before the day comes because it’s closer than you think.
