As I’m sitting here alone thinking about the situation our planet’s in, our children’s health here in the U.S., and the horrible physical and mental condition of Americans and especially those my age–55 and older…well, let’s just say my head’s ready to explode! But before it does let me stuff more dynamite in there!
Where to begin… I know, really… like anyone can pick on the bad things; you’re just being negative–move to another country if you don’t like it. But that’s the point! I do like it — in fact, I love it!
Right now in America our children aged 6-12 have at least one form of cardiovascular disease, and we as a nation have gotten so fat it’s now a disease; and doctors along with insurance companies are getting even fatter! We Americans have the world’s highest healthcare cost, the highest crime rate in every category, and Americans put more humans in prison than any other country — in fact, more than the rest of the world!
These are the things we are number #1 in; and with the availability of information at our fingertips, you can look up for yourself where we’re at in education, health, and the condition of our veterans. Every day, 22 vets commit suicide; one in three of the homeless are vets!
America has become the producer of one thing: young men and women to fight and die for other countries and tell us it’s for our protection and safety; we celebrate Veterans Day, put up a flag and stick our heads back in the sand. This has to be true — how else can we explain the condition of virtually everything that has deteriorated to a point of embarrassment!
Prescription pills are at an all-time-high and they have everybody high; it’s estimated that 90 percent of Americans are on some sort of prescribed medication and I jokingly add that 5 percent of the 10 percent left are lying, but it’s no joking matter.
Every commercial selling pills advertises the first prescription free! Damn, it sounds like the drug pusher on the corner back in the seventies; what’s going on?
No other country in the world advertises on TV, billboards and in every other venue available the propensity for spending every dollar earned or not on everything imaginable, needed or not–and most times it’s not!
The food along with the additives and preservatives that are put in everything only in our country — all other countries are smarter or their lives are worth more; the poisoning of the Americans’ pallet has caused people to not even recognize real food, food that actually has nutrition not genetically engineered or modified, which at this point in time if you’re not familiar with [what I’m saying], pull your head out of the sand or wherever you stuck it! America imports everything while at the same time not owning a single port which we allow everything to go through.
Wait — what did I just say? We don’t own a single seaport that they bring everything through to Americans [us] in order to be consumed in one way or another! Crazy insane–this can’t be true but it is, and it gets worse!
All this stuff being imported while America’s farmers watch their fruits and vegetables rot on the ground; our factories are shut down and unemployment is out of control!
Please stop my head! Remember, there’s no more room–not for even another single stick of dynamite. But wait! I found some room right here in my big mouth!
Americans have more entertainment available to them–no matter who you are, from the 1 percent to the most homeless homeless person. Since I’m a man and sports is “manly” (for lack of a better word), I’ll start there. Between baseball, basketball and football; from kids to pro; not to mention tennis, golf, NASCAR, and of course boxing, UFC, and (OMG–my head’s hurting) and soccer crammed down our throats… but that’s all right, we can take it and more! If I never see another buzzer beater hail mary unbelievable catch kick punch or whatever they’re repeating over and over, I’ll die a happy man. This is nothing but another distraction and a separation from our attention and money.
How in the world can they afford to pay every one of them millions and millions? It’s because of us and our addiction to entertainment. Yes, we demand it and there’s a reason: we’ve been programmed. That’s right–programmed just like a computer! The only difference is we’ve been programmed with data that only benefits the very, very rich–and there you have it! Greed at any and all expense to the degree of crippling a nation!
OK, now the movies, the ones you must see and see first you know, the newest action, comedy, science fiction, drama or whatever is advertised as the best movie in the world or just the ones we watch over and over; CDs, downloads on every device to watch or listen to including something that has been pushed on us disguised as music and it includes country, R&B, rock and jazz, and any music that’s contribution is negative; most entertainers only wanting fame and fortune and again distracting us from the big picture.
An occasional group song of course for charity and the cause–world hunger, water to every human, cancer, or just pick one and everyone of them is still as prevalent as ever, so where does the money go? Not to the charity, that’s for sure!
When something is broke the first thing you want to do is fix it, right? You’d think this to be the case especially with something as important as our country!
Unfortunately research proves just the opposite; with the use of technology and a few whistle-blowers coming to the forefront we’ve come to find out that our beloved government has been treating us like mushrooms for a long long time.
