Just Checking In and Remembering

 It's been awhile since I've posted here.  I'm on Blogger every day reading those on the left side's blogs.  Y'all should too.  There are some great writhers and funny stuff over there.

I was curious of when I started blogging, so I scrolled back t to the beginning and it shocked me to see that that I stared back in 2006.  It seems at times longer and then like it was yesterday.  I read a few of my earlier post and the did bring back memories... of old blogging friends now gone one way or another; a different time in life that was, it seems now, easier and simple - though it wasn't.

I will be surprised if anyone even reads THIS post.

Oh well.  I guess I'll go back to Facebook... as soon as I get out  of FB Jail for posting my feelings and the truth.

Maybe I'll be back one day...

FB has you down as a repeat offender. I'm jealous.

I need to rant for a minute.
I'm getting old and I’ve worked hard all my life. I have made my reputation - the good and the bad. I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I have busted ass to get where I am in life.
I have juggled my job, my family, and I’ve made countless sacrifices up front to secure a good life for myself and my children. It wasn’t always easy and still isn't, but I did it all while maintaining my integrity and my principles. I’ve never put anyone beneath myself or denied help to anyone. I have friends of every walk of life and if you’re in my circle, it should be understood that I don’t have to remind you of what I’d be willing to do for you.
However....
I'm tired of being told that I have to "spread the wealth" to people who don't have my work ethic. People who have sacrificed nothing and feel entitled to receive everything.
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 themselves.
I'm tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which, no one is allowed to debate.
I'm tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of all parties talk like their opinions matter to the common man. I’m tired of any of them pretending they can even relate to the life and bank account that I have.
And I’m ESPECIALLY TIRED of hearing, and seeing these millionaire athletes, and entertainers degrading my country. The country that I spent 4 years of my life PROUDLY serving, and the same country that made it possible for these millionaire athletes, and entertainers to make their Millions. So if they can’t even Stand to honor our Flag, and our Anthem, then get the hell out, and go somewhere will they Give a Damn about you.
I'm tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor. I’m tired of the greed, everybody always wanting more.
I’m tired of being labeled as a racist because I am white. Because I am proud of my heritage, the same way black, Asian and native people are proud of theirs.
I never stole any ones land, I never owned slaves and neither has anyone up my line of genealogy...
I’m tired of being told I need to accept the latest political fad, or politically correct stupidity, or blindly accept a group that would smile while stoning me because I won’t convert to their point of view - because I won’t cover my face.
I'm really tired of people who don't take responsibility for their lives and actions. Especially the ones that want me to fund it. I'm tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination, or big-whatever for their problems.
No one is entitled to anything. You have a choice to work, a choice to stay off drugs - a choice to make something of yourself. I have nothing to do with your choice. That's all on you.
You are entitled to what you earn.
I didn’t earn this for you. I didn’t put in the time, and the effort, and miss out on Christmas, Thanksgiving and birthdays and Baseball games for you. I did this for my family. I EARNED this life for my family. You could have done the same.
You, and your government, have no right to reach into the pot I work so hard to fill.
Thank you for your time.
