I’m an American. Just one person, but I feel as if the “gorilla in the room” has not only grown to gigantic proportions but has taken over intelligent rational minds, many of whom I never would have expected to belittle themselves by spreading fear and hate (or passively going along) with the use of vularity and bullying tactics.
I am proud to be an American, but am very worried about the direction we Americans are allowing ourselves to be herded towards.
Whether it is apathy, indifference or some other thing it is horrifying and more than a little scary.
I, for one, am hopeful more Americans wake up from this sick unreal “reality show” that so many are currently living with their guidance (dependence) for how to behave directly related to the deceptive and artificial media and social media world.
Just so scary … I mean really!!!!
Penny L Howe, 2016
“See the thing is even though I know “as the 800 lb gorilla in the room” I’m mostly invisible (to various politicians), well actually I don’t think I’m invisible as much as I’m inconvenient. You know – the inconvenient truth of it all!”
“I haven’t been sleeping well lately and I’m guessing that there are a bazillion other ‘every day people’ out there who are having the same trouble sleeping that I am … for the same reason.”
“So we’ve got a new year going for us. Time of change and all that, but the thing I started to say is, change needs to start with you guys!”
“Big time, in a big way … because the truth is we’re running out of it!”
“Time that is! Not a lot left, actually none.”
“Seriously a huge deficit where time is concerned, so the only thing we’ve got going for us is CHANGE. I can spell the word if you’re having trouble understanding.”
“Not just a little change, but a whole bunch of huge change where super charged ego’s and powerful megalithic corporate entities don’t get in the way. The laid back, ‘everything’s going to be just fine’ approach isn’t working so well!”
“Yes I know a dichotomy where you guys are concerned but, we’re already in trouble and need some serious changes in how we do what we do in this country. So there you have it, once more … timely comments that aren’t really timely any more … but better late than never!”
Thank you for stopping by! I wouldn’t have revisited the political arena if I wasn’t extremely concerned about the well-being of my home and yours!
