A Tired Viewpoint


I'm tired.

I've worked, hard, since I was 14, outside the home that is, working to support myself through college and many subsequent years And support others in my life. Despite some health challenges, I put in 60 hour weeks, and hadn't
called in sick very often.
I made a fair living at my own business, but I didn't inherit my job or my income and I worked to get where I am.
Given the economy, there's no end in sight.
I'm tired of being told that I have to "spread the wealth" to people who don't have my work ethic.
I'm tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by
force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.
I'm tired of the "politically correct" dictating to citizens  how to speak and act in place of right and wrong. Where have our values gone and why are we silently giving in to this?
I'm tired of being told that Islam is a "Religion of Peace," when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family "honor"; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christians and Jews because they aren't "believers;" of Muslimfaith.
Those who are burning schools for girls; of Muslim terrorism stoning teenage rape victims to death
 for "adultery;" of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in
the name of Allah, because the Qur'an and Shari,a law tells them to?
I'm tired of being told that, out of "tolerance for other cultures," we must let Saudi Arabia use our oil money to fund mosques and madrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in America and Canada, while no American nor Canadian group is allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia to teach love and
I'm tired of being told I must "sacrifice" my living standard to fight global warming, which when the wealthy are allowed to ignore these issues,doing as they please,while addressing it on their political platforms and no one is allowed to debate those issues.
I'm tired of of hearing about
wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of both parties talking about
innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we All know
they think their only mistake was getting caught. I'm tired of people with a
sense of entitlement, rich or poor.
I'm real tired of people who
don't take responsibility for their lives and actions. I'm tired of hearing
them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their
Yes, I'm damn tired. But, I'm just sorry for
the children,who have to grow up in this chaotic upside down world.

there is hope yet.dont quit looking at the moon.

i do apologize for my inpropriate remarks when you and I are just getting to know one another a minuscule amount. I had no right to Speak out on your write.

it is just my nature to want to help. Sorry.

in the future,if,if,if you permit me to,I will message any personal remarks and then only if you should ask it. My extroverted personality is very misunderstood and my actions aren't usually very welcome.

please forgive me, KS

peace out,Koko

thoughts and my integrity are in place in my rant.


it should be the ideal for America.

Sadly, I watch the masses recreate problems by narcissitic attitudes of what's on their personal agendas instead of what the hell is good for the whole.

i also see that people no longer have a good education nor care about it.

i see them floundering in writing a check in a grocery store or in the spelling ,word choices ,grammar when writing and not knowing much about anything except computer socializing and playing games.

Cell phones:

God forbid we leave the house without one to text on the whole day. There is a time and place for it.

I too use an iPad or laptop to participate online,but I also am offline doing productive activities,some of which is for the benefit of others less fortunate.

I have "0ld school" values and ethics.

My ideas and values are scorned by most of society.

i am a misfit in the millenial generation.

its good to know that some have shared my viewpoint.

I'd say not all is lost....

There is a glimmer of hope yet.

i pray daily

i love fiercely. I'm loyal. I'm enduring in my own personal hardships and I've had a rough life,therefore my compassion for you or the next guy is immense,driving my soul to seek to help,encourage and be uplifting to anyone that I see hurting in any way.

thats me and it is sincere.

But it is also not always well received

my bad!

love of the highest kind,
