From my small seat, here in Florida I see the world around me, no
problem; life is good. But looking at
the WORLD around me from the internet and I say OUCH. I am one of about 334
million people (333,738,930 as of Tuesday, November 30, 2021) here in the USA,
This dude cannot fix a major thing here.
In this great
country we have ‘Gay people’, black people, and diverse folks from around the
world. All have an agenda. I do understand
it. I tell my wife if I was a black man I would probably have been militant.
That view is from being raised in a segregated world. I accepted it as proper
or normal. It was not RIGHT to expect black
people to give their seat to a white peron in a bus. It was not
RIGHT that at black person could not drink from the same water fountain as a
white person. BUT I, and millions
accepted it as the right way to do things. I never had the experience of
attending school with kids of color. I
thought that was normal also.
you, I pick my friends from the ones who also would pick me. I have friends and family who are completely
opposite of me in Religion, politics and ideas of the future, but we can have
dinner laugh, joke and even poke fun at each other. Folks that is the USA, I
LOVE IT! I do not plan to hate or
dislike someone just because they think different from me.
Are there personalities that rub you the wrong way? There are some that
sure turn me off. I talk too much and it is usually around someone I cannot
understand what they are saying (HEARING HERE, NOT A DISLIKE). I enjoy people with
whom you can have a conversation. We met a man on our walks back home who would
STOP us to TALK. (We like to smile and wave). It wasn’t long until we knew HE
wanted to TALK, not converse. We deviated our walk because of it.
EGOs, most of us have an ego whether we admit it or not. We should think
highly of ourselves. We have strong beliefs and that is normal methinks. BUT,
but when an individual has an EGO that is larger than the WORLD and their way
IS THE ONLY WAY, it turns me OFF, friend, mayor or any politician.
PS: We have Missouri friends who visited Florida during segregation and one of the boys (Robert I think) tried the 'colored fountain', expecting flavored or colored water.
