Too Much Anger

Lately, I have noticed that there is way too much anger in the world. It seems that people are fed up with everything right now. The sad part of this is how people are taking their anger out on others…especially those who have done nothing to warrant receiving it.

It’s a volatile time right now, politically and racially and any other -ally you can think of. Too much is going on that is causing people to erupt. Yes, the world is messed up. There is no doubt about it. The key right now is to not allow ourselves to get sucked into the madness.

I suggest we all take a deep breath and stop for a moment. Consider the world. Consider the situations we find ourselves in. At the core, all of us are trying to survive and move forward in this life.

Let’s try to remember this. Also, let’s try to spread a little love. One kind word or deed can go a long way toward making a positive difference in another’s life.

Take a deep breath…

Breathe and center yourself.  Focus on the present.  Move forward.  Allowing worry to rule your life is the same as giving someone else your personal power.  Hold fast to your power and stand strong.

Vote. Just go out and do it. You still have time.

Here in the Eastern Time Zone of the United States of America, it is just a little past 1:00pm. That means there are several hours left to vote. If you haven’t done it yet, please get out and vote. This post is not a recommendation for or against any one candidate or either party. It’s a recommendation to use your privilege to cast a vote for the persons you feel would best represent you. Don’t let anyone stop you from exercising your privilege.

Get out and vote.  If you don’t vote, you don’t have a voice.  We need everyone’s voice in the mix.

Pick a side and defend it…and don’t be afraid!

when does “middle of the road”

become “run for your life?”

A Poem for Pre-Election Day Pondering…

the idiots make themselves seem

more reasonable than they are

their dumbed-down dialogue

becomes national rhetoric

we know we are in trouble

when we let others

do our thinking

This is as political a post as you will ever see on this blog

Election Day is about a month away.  Let the stupidity begin, and while you’re at it, vote for whoever you want to win the election.  No matter how silly.

Use the power of the write-in and get creative, especially if the choices presented to you are themselves silly.

It’s tiring to choose among the least-desirable…so why not liven it up a bit?

Mike Nesmith for Mayor!  Paul McCartney for the Senate!  Robert Plant for Sheriff!

Who do you choose?  Exercise the freedom to vote for anyone, because anyone can do a better job than most of the current elected officials.
