A Higher Place

There seems to be a growing trend to tell people off, or call them out, as the kids are saying. It’s prevalent on cable political programs. Republicans pointing at Democrats who are pointing at Republicans. I try not to watch because it just makes me angry. Probably nobody does it better than Jon Stewart on The Daily Show. At least he is funny and clever.   The current election seems to be one big war of words. No lives are lost in this war, but a little piece of humanity dies as these battles rage on. It’s a mean society.

No wonder there is an increase in bullying. The 70’s may have been called the “me” generation, but now we have entered the “you” generation. The “you” I speak of is the person or group  we choose to blame for our inability to look at the man in the mirror and change. Now, before I start sounding like Michael Jackson (who, by the way, blamed his father for his horrible life), I would just like to say that back in my day (old man voice), we were the ones to blame. We had to take responsibility for our actions. Our parents didn’t coddle us and lie to us. They told us to stop complaining, brush our teeth, do our homework and go to bed.

Somehow, this generation needs to stop being victims and rise above the blame game. They need to get to a higher place. A place of responsibility and success by their own means and actions.

Oops. I’m back. Just lost power and had to rewrite this entry. Why? Because the utility company is run by a bunch of 1% corporate bloodsuckers who only care about themselves and their estates, cars and yachts that I don’t have but deserve because this is America…damn it.

Sorry I got so cranky. I think I will go brush my teeth and go to bed.
