” When there is any kind of shutdown of a Government because two sides can’t work together, with millions of hard working Americans left hanging in the balance, then maybe it is time to change the occupants within the Government”
Government shut down here in America, leaving the hard working Americans hanging in the balance, leaving our Military without their much needed pay, so they can fight for us all and keep us safe here in America, closing the true beauty of our National parks, leaving us all no access to wander within them, but yet the basis of the shutdown is over ” Illegal” Immigration, leaving us hard working Americans out in the cold, maybe it is time come mid term elections, we the people of this great country, do as we did when we elected our now President Donald Trump. Those like Schumer, Pelosi, McCain, Warren and many like them, need to go, they have become way to comfortable and simply blinded by the true needs of the true Americans.
Let’s not forget the fact that, while these so called Leaders go home and walk away from their true responsibilities within the Government, they are still receiving their pay and their healthcare, all paid for by…………… You guessed it, we the hard working Americans of this great country. These so called Leaders have truly forgotten this and the time is now, for each one of us…………. The hard working American to remind them and demand them to not only go back to work, but go back and work together, so we all here in America, can walk our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.
These so called Leaders will point the finger of blame to the President, simply because they are so full of themselves, they truly can not see the real writing on the wall? Yes it is true this country was built on Immigration, but Immigration done the correct way and when you let the word ” Illegal” enter into the equation, then that should be a red flag warning you that you are doing something wrong, which then you fix correctly whatever it is you are doing wrong. I truly understand and feel the word of Empathy within me, I get there are some around the World being treated less than a Human and we in this country empathize with these people, but what about those Americans here, who are treated and live as low as low can be, we spend a lot of money on these Sanctuary cities, but do we truly know who is really coming into this country? There are some coming here and using us, so they can wreak havoc and kill as many Americans as they can. Is it okay to empathize with those less fortunate around the World, you bet it is okay, but first we need to take care of our own, so we can truly make America great again.
President Trump since taking the highest office on the land, has been doing a great job rebuilding our infrastructure, bringing companies back here to America and creating good manufacturing jobs for us to be hired into, he has turned around Wall street and the stock market and a whole slew of other accomplishments, but when you have a troubled Media system, who are only focused on their agendas, which is only being totally negative, when it comes to our Leader President Donald Trump, that they to can not truly see the reality if it was staring them in the face. They would rather print fiction than reality, so they can try to bring our President down, They would rather see America fail, then to be truly great as America truly is. I have a news flash for the Media, how about trying to focus on the positive instead of the negative, stop all the unnecessary drama, because with the current President and his great Business skills, America can get back to what America truly is and what America is? The greatest country on the face of this planet, with the greatest minds and technology, so we all can live in peace, while we walk this journey through life.
” America is truly the greatest country on the planet, but first we need to take care of our own before any ” Illegal” that sneaks in here”
” Our so called leaders have turned this country into the laughing stock throughout the World, instead of the greatest country throughout the World”
” The media has an agenda, but they seem to forget that the American people have an agenda as well”
” America is of We the people not, We the Media who creates unnecessary drama through all the negativity”
” Time to spread the positivity through our true empathy, to eliminate all the negativity around us”
” The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed”
*** Luke 4:18
” This stream flows along it’s path within it’s boundaries, as it shares all the land around it with all the other Vegetation”
Within this Society of today, the ones that are truly Oppressed move forward quietly as to not bring attention to themselves, yet there are others using a sport that they play as their platform and then disrespect a flag, that men and woman have fought hard to protect, so these Individuals can make their millions playing their sport, is this really a good way to voice your concerns? Our Military of the past and the present, have fought for our flag, so we can be free here to do what we want and travel wherever we want to go. These men and woman of the Military are made up of our Mother’s, Father’s, Brother’s and Sister’s, some never made it back home, others came home but never the same as they left to fight for the flag, then as they come home to re join Society with us, they become neglected and disrespected by the rest of us throughout this Society. These Veterans are the one true oppressed people of this Society, cause they worked hard so we can be free and safe in this Country, as the ones that think they are oppressed, don’t work and expect the rest of us to tale care of them, as they become even lazier throughout this Society.
There are many that are oppressed within this Society, but they work hard to get out of the oppression, so they can be as vibrant and happy like many others. The ones that bicker and complain become lazy and never work hard at doing anything of value in their lives, then they try to disrupt the lives of those around them, by doing stupid things and forcing their opinions on those around them. Oppression is what you make of it and if your not willing to reach out, lend a helping hand to others at their time of need, then I blame we the people for letting this Oppression become bigger than it really needs to be.
There are some that cry they are oppressed, but do nothing to help themselves, they do nothing to get out of the oppression, then they rely on others to not help them out of the oppression, but to disrupt the lives of others around them. ” God helps those who help themselves”, so when there is no hope of any help, only means you have lost the faith in yourself as well as in God also. Don’t rely on others to over step the boundaries in a Society, as it is like the stream and if the stream over stepped it’s boundaries, then all the Vegetation around it dies as it becomes flooded.
Before you take a knee in protest, really know what you are protesting, I understand that there is oppression going on around us but, this oppression has affect on a lot more than one kind of person in this Society, to take a knee before a game to not pay tribute to a flag of this Countries colors, to which many have fought and died, so we can be free and you can earn millions from the sport where you are taking the knee, this is not a good idea and shows that people need to re think the way to protest. By taking a knee you are doing nothing but showing disrespect of those who fought hard, died and came home not of the same person defending the flag, so we all can be free to be anything of which we truly want to be. Find another way in which to protest that won’t show any disrespect of anything or anyone around you, Let’s all be a little smarter with our actions, so we all can walk our paths in peace, while being truly happy throughout this journey of life.
” Oppression comes from relying heavily on others to work on our behalf, without we ourselves working hard to get out of the Oppression”
” oppression is what you make of it and with no faith there will be no hope of getting out of the Oppression”
” Many have died fighting for the red, white and blue so the rest of us can be free in this country, let’s not disrespect their spirit by taking a knee in it’s honor”
It is sad that in today’s Society some will accuse others of things they have never done…… Why? Your guess is as good as mine, maybe it’s the fact that they lack their own self confidence and this is a way for them to try to move forward, while thinking they are better than you? Could also mean that they have some hidden issues that they are afraid to address? I get the fact we all have our own issues that we deal with on a daily basis, but when we deal with issues that are brought on by others, that make false accusations, shows just how people in this Society need to grow up, accept the responsibility of their actions, learn how to be confident in their abilities and instead of burying their issues deep within their sole, fix what needs to be fixed, so we all can move forward in peace and happiness, along our paths of this journey through life.
Self Confidence is something we all learn as we grow along our paths of this journey, self confidence doesn’t just happen as it is achieved by the way we learn to be better at all we do along our paths. When we lack this Self Confidence shows that we have become lazy at earning and achieving it, we forget how to practice whatever we need to practice, so we can achieve the confidence to move forward, within this Society we have become so lazy, we forget what it is to work hard for what we want, to work hard to gain our self confidence and when we get that lazy we then get lost within the clouds of our own self doubt. When self doubt enter onto our paths, we then will do anything, in order to move forward, even if that means knocking others down, so we then what we think is moving ahead of them? This is only one thing and that is, the fact that we lack the confidence in ourselves to move forward correctly, so we then can achieve success correctly, while we all become happy everyday of our journey.
Self Confidence isn’t just in the ability of a person that plays a sport, it is within each of us along our paths of our journey, we strive for the confidence to be great at whatever we are doing, when we lack the confidence and we become lazy to work hard at achieving it, we then will do anything to try to achieve it, yes that means we will try to bring down others around us, to make it seem like we are better, even though they do the job better than I? Simply look at some one like Tom Brady of the New England Patriots, he works very hard, not just at practice, but within the game of football he plays, with that hard work and practice, he has enough self confidence in his abilities, that he is by far the best Quarterback in football, those within the game that chats ill of him are simply jealous and are lazy to work as hard as Tom, not too mention the reason why some hate on him so much. Life along our paths of this journey will go so much smoother if we all work hard and practice everything we do, fix whatever issues we have, so we can achieve our self confidence and be better and stronger moving forward.
” Self Confidence isn’t something that just comes to us, we have to work hard in achieving whatever we do to gain the Confidence”
” To bring another down is not the way for us to achieve success, or even move forward stronger and better”
” When we lack self confidence only means we have issues that we need to fix, so we can achieve the confidence to be better and stronger moving forward”
This quote by the late Stuart Scott is a great quote in many ways but the best way is, it can be used for many things and all you have to do is remove the word Cancer.
” You beat Rejection, by how you live, why you live and in the manner of which you live”
The Media does this everyday when you give them a statement, they twist around the words, just to fit their agenda for which they want to achieve. I am only switching one word to make a point as we walk our paths through this journey of life.
Many of us have seen by now, this video of the Bison Calf that what the Media wants us to believe has been rejected by the rest of the Herd, this video has gone viral throughout all Social Media outlets, the Media wants us to see it as this Herd is wrong for leaving behind the Calf, but throughout all the species and yes we as Humans are a species also, their are ones that get left behind and it happens everyday, so why then is it all of a sudden wrong to the Media? Simply because they are looking to create more unnecessary drama, for us to bite into, more Drama for them to create a story, which then gives them more money in their pockets, at our expense. All this Drama can stop and it is quite simple, we the people need to stop being so eager to bite, at everything the media feeds us.
This isn’t the first time a member of any Herd has been left behind and yes this also means a member of the Herd known as the Human Race. Lets look back at a time in our lives, when we were Children growing up and getting educated at our schools. We all remember the different groups like the Jocks, the Stoner’s, the Nerd’s, the Preppies etc…. When we don’t fit into any of these groups, then we are looked at as different, we get Bullied in order for the chosen ones of the groups can look powerful and worthy of that group, meanwhile the rejected ones become Loner’s and left behind from the rest of his/her Classmates, through the rejection process the Individuals that are left behind, go through a series of emotional times, they lose their true feelings and their true purpose of their existence, they become lost within the clouds of their judgments.
Now with this quote by Stuart Scott and removing of the word Cancer to Rejection, these Individuals can follow the rest of the quote, to become stronger and better moving forward, they can also be better than the ones who rejected them by following their own path and then letting their self esteem grow, as they then grow within this journey of life. The Drama we bite into, stops us from growing which then stops our self esteem from growing, cause we now believe in everything that is presented to us, this calf was left behind from the Herd cause it was not strong enough to keep up, but as this Calf grows and becomes stronger, will then form its own Herd and walk a different path then the path of the Herd that left him behind. Throughout all the Species that walk theirs paths, there may be some that learn differently, their may be some that are slower than others, their may be some that have certain events happen to them for a reason? This don’t mean they are different from the rest, it only means they may take a bit longer to grow, as their esteem grows with them.
This journey of Life isn’t about the Drama we bite into everyday, it is totally about how we walk our paths through this journey, so we than can grow properly, which helps our esteem grow properly, as we all walk our paths in Peace and Happiness everyday of our existence. Being rejected isn’t always a bad thing if we only understand better why, so we then can be stronger moving forward, along our paths of this journey through life.
” Rejection is a part of all our paths as we walk this journey through life, we just have to understand the why, to be better moving forward”
” Drama is created in a way to control each of us showing that some may be more powerful than others, we don’t have to bite showing them we are still in control”
” The quote of Stuart Scott is one of the best quotes of my lifetime, as it is very versatile by switching just one word”
On this day of April 1st, we all try to prank each other just so we can say ” April Fools” at the end of the day. What we don’t look deeply into is, we are creating a Victim of our pranks, simply because we rationalize away that we are just trying to be funny.
I haven’t been a Victim of these pranks in a long while, but this morning I read an article that looked very legit from my favorite sports team, about my favorite player on that team. This article was on my wall of Facebook from one of my friends and this article looked like it came directly from the Boston Bruins which is my favorite team. Patrice Bergeron my favorite player on the team was what the article is about, he is also the best player on the team, This article stated that Patrice suffered a season ending freak injury, which he was walking down the stairs of an airplane, slipped and to break his fall, landed on his hand and broke his hand? I get the fact of trying to make a joke on this day and create a very believable prank? But at the expense of the best player on a team, to which is very liked throughout Bruins Nation, True my heart sank into my stomach as I read this, but when I got to the last sentence which read, ” April Fools. Patrice is fine”, now your getting into an area of, wishing an injury on a person, to which happens to be the teams best player at that.
We all want to one up each other, we all want to be better than each other I get that, but when you create Victims from your actions is not the way to truly be better than anything, let alone better than each other, on the contrary if we all could simply learn to work together, get along with each other and create pranks that are actually funny, instead of creating more hatred among ourselves, just maybe we can walk our paths through this journey of life peacefully, with all of us being happy everyday.
A true April Fools prank should be fun and make the target of the prank, feel embarrassed that they have been duped, but when a prank is of an injury to another person even jokingly, now your crossing the line into a grey area, that should never be crossed by anybody at any time. Wishing ill of somebody means that you have lost what the true meaning of Empathy is and you are only thinking of yourself and nobody else, simply for a joke and a laugh. Come on people we are better than that, or we are suppose to be better than that? Within this Society and the fact that we are all lost within the clouds of our judgments, shows just how out of touch we all are with our true feelings of Empathy.
Empathy is a feeling that is within us all, it is also a feeling that we turn off and bury deep within our soul when certain life events happen to us, cause we don’t want to feel the pain from these events. When we bury these feelings deep within, all we are truly doing is becoming someone we truly are not. This pain we feel from the event/events, should make us want to fix what is wrong, instead of hiding within ourselves then becoming someone we truly are not, the thing we fear most from the pain is, what others will think of us, instead of staying true to self. The path we walk here on this journey, is walked by us as an Individual, others around us don’t walk our paths and some simply try to derail us from this path, so they can think they are better, or they simply don’t care for anything/anybody around them. It is a sad reality we all live here within this Society, but to truly change this will take the proper actions by each and every one of us as we walk our paths of this journey through life.
” April Fools is a day we all prank each other for a laugh, it shouldn’t be a day we wish Ill of another for that laugh”
” Empathy is a feeling within us all. it is also a feeling that we have lost the true meaning of”
” Creating a Victim is not the way to walk through this journey of life, all this does is create more hatred throughout this Society”
” to be better and stronger moving forward is a good thing, but to create a Victim to do this is a bad thing”
We throughout this Society are all about the lip service and have no clue, of what taking action is anymore. It all starts with our so called Leaders and trickles down to us folk, that make this Country what it is, then when you add in all the Propaganda Media, now you have so much Lip service, that it is impossible to have any action of any kind.
Our Elected Officials today will move their Lips saying what we want to hear, so they can swindle our vote their way, then once they are in the office, forget about any action, cause there is no action only a bunch of broken promises. With a National Debt fast approaching twenty trillion big ones (yes I said twenty Trillion), probably within the next couple or three years, shows just what our elected officials are truly doing in the office they hold and that is nothing. Obama will say the Economy is fine, cause the Unemployment numbers are down, what I want to truly know is, the ones that have exhausted their unemployment benefits, are their numbers being counted? or are we only getting half the numbers for this? Because with the National Debt as big as it is, then what is truly being done to reduce it? The other thing that is not brought up is, a lot of people have taken part-time jobs, simply because the Companies do not want to pay for the Health care for these people anymore and our elected officials are letting them get away with it and then the people get fined if they have no insurance……… Seriously is this Country really better, or are we just getting more Lip service from our elected officials again and again.
We all want our five minutes of fame, we all want to be famous and be known for something great as well, but when it hurts all those around us, you think there is a problem there, or more specific…….maybe their are way too many getting in each others way, instead of truly fixing what needs to be fixed. You can clearly see that what we are doing now is not working, so we need change and when I say change, I mean real change that is best for all involved. When you do take action, you don’t lean towards certain groups that are willing to pad the lining of your pockets with some extra cash, you take the necessary action needed to bring real change for the better of all throughout, so we all can prosper and be stronger moving forward.
This Country of the United States was always based on Immigration, but Immigration done correctly and when you see the word ” Illegal” before it, then maybe that is a clue that you are doing something wrong? With that said and given how the economy truly is, maybe it is time to shut the Borders for a short time, fix what you need to fix, so we can then move forward better and stronger, as freely as we can like our For-Fathers set up for us, instead of keeping the Borders the way they are and people coming here Illegally and stripping us of the true American Dream. I understand some want to come here for a better life like past Immigrants have done, so what is wrong with coming here correctly as those of the past have done? Plus when you walk your paths of this journey through life correctly, not only will you feel great and peaceful, but others around you will feel great and be at peace as well, with a bonus of, the United States of America can be great once again.
There are a lot of big issues that need to be addressed throughout our Society, with all the Lip service going on around us, there will never be any action of these issues. We also have to deal with this thing called ” Political Correction”, which is making us all weak and afraid to take any action of anything, for the fear of offending those around us. We within this Society have a lot of fixing to do and no time like the present to start the process of the true fix, the best way to do it is real change that involves, rolling up the sleeves and get ready to work, stop moving the Lips and start showing more action and become the solution, instead of the problem.
” if you want to talk the talk, then first you need to walk the walk”
” Lip service is for chatting to a Friend over the telephone, taking action will give you a feeling of accomplishment when you actually finish what you started”
” To fix the issues starts with taking action and being responsible, not being lazy and using lip service to say you will do something”
The decision for Bill Belichek to kick away the ball at the start of overtime in last nights game, totally lies on him to do so and with his track record over the last fifteen years as the Coach of the New England Patriots, who are we to second guess his decision?
These pictures here are of two totally different paths, just like in life you also have different paths in sports to get to where you want to go. with the way the Offense played last night, compared to the way the defense played, clearly was part of the way Bill made his decision and all these theories we are hearing today, totally lie with the sports media, in trying to stir up as much drams as they can, so they can have a job to stir the drama with. Bill has brought four Championships here to new England over his tenure here, why should we stop trusting him now? Even Tom Brady came out and said the defense played better and he is the common denominator in all the different teams that Bill has coached here.
Talk about the media creating drama in sports, there was a report of Peyton Manning using HGH in the year 2011 after his neck surgery, which this report was later recanted when the reporter came out and said he was wrong, but now the seed of drama is planted and a very hard seed to dig up like the weeds in your green grass. Tom Brady came out in total defense of Peyton, as he is going through the same seed of drama with the deflate gate crap and can totally feel what Peyton is going through. This is, what is wrong with our Society of today, here you have two of the best Quarterbacks in the history of the NFL and there are some out there through jealousy, that will try to take them down, instead of sitting back and enjoying the show that they are putting on, year after year.
True we here in New England may not of liked the call to kick the ball away and pass up the chance to end the game with the offense scoring a touchdown like the Jets did, but when you sit back and review the game inside the game, you can see clearly why Bill made this decision, as the defense out played the offense in last nights game, it is just that it didn’t work out for the Patriots like in years past and with all the injuries to key players, shows that even the mighty Patriots fall Victim to the bug of an injury ridden season, like all other teams throughout the NFL.
With Bill Belichek and Tom Brady, the Patriots will always be in the talk of which teams will go to the Superbowl, but when key players around Tom fall to the injury bug, makes it that much harder to get there and that much harder a pill to swallow, for all the fans around New England to accept. The legacy of Bill and Tom here in New England is winning, but without all the key supporting players around them makes it that much harder to overcome adversity and keep the legacy of winning alive, I can say I was disappointed at the call also, but when I looked at the game inside the game, I clearly saw the reason why he made that call and totally respected Bill for making the call. #inbillwetrust Let us all here in New England always trust in Bill as his track record speaks for itself.
” just as in life, sports has different paths to follow to get to your true destination, hard work and determination shows you the true path to follow”
” Decisions are made everyday in life as well as sports, just that all the decisions made don’t always work in your favor”
” The New England Patriots with Bill and Tom will always be considered a favorite in the NFL, its the right supporting cast around them that keep them one of the favorites”
The road to any Championship within any sport you may play, are full of unknowns, trials and tribulation. Now I am a New England Patriot fan not just of long standing, but I am what is known as the hometown Homey, with that said…….. I have also lived through the toughest of times when these Patriots lost more than they win, now with these Patriots of the last fifteen years winning more than they lose, I have earned the success this team has given me.
Since Bill Belichek and Tom Brady took the reigns of this franchise, the New England Patriots have become one of the best teams within the history of the National Football League, not too mention the best Quarterback/Coach tandem as well. You had the Steeler’s of the 1970’s, the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s that were great dynasties of their time and right now it is the New England Patriots who have become that great dynasty. Unfortunately with success comes the hater’s and in today’s World, the haters are ten times worse than of any other time. You also had the New York Yankees throughout their winning days within Baseball and became the most hated team within their sport, it happens because when a team gets so dominant and beats regularly other teams, it’s the fans that bring out this hatred of the team that their team can not beat.
” a team can only be a Champion when they step up to the plate and beat a true Champion with regularity”
I get the fact that the fans want to play and pick these fantasy teams to compete with each other, but these fantasy games have completely ruined all sports and completely took away any integrity that these sports had. ” Let the real players stand up and play the game they love to play”. These fantasy teams that the fans pick, are just that fantasy. They are not real teams and from what I see all the other owner’s throughout the NFL, want these fantasy teams to make it look like their teams are doing okay? Roger Goodell the Commissioner of the NFL, is in power from the board of directors of the league and who are these directors? All the owners of all 32 teams in the NFL. When it comes to the New England Patriots, all the other Owners are the ones that have hated on this team the most, simply because they have made their teams look completely silly throughout all that watch the NFL. What I say to these Owners is, time to step up to the plate and beat a real Champion (fair and square) that the Patriots have become, so your teams can have a share of what being a Champion truly feels like.
It is not about the Patriots laying down so other teams can catch up to the curve, it is all about the other teams of the NFL catching up to the Patriots on the field fair and square. These Patriots throughout their history in the NFL have seen times where they lose more than they win, they didn’t whine and cry like the teams of today, no!! They just stepped up to the plate and with much hard work, became one of the best Franchises in the history of the NFL, it’s time the other teams follow the path of these Patriots, so maybe one day they to can become a True Champion.
” A True Champion doesn’t just happen, first there comes dedication, hard work and perseverance”
” instead of whining and crying and creating hate of a team, step up to the plate to beat a true champion and become the champion”
” Hard work is what defines Tom Brady and the number one reason why he has been so good for so long”
Who are the Jones? And why do we need to keep up with them?
Who knows when or even why this saying has been around so long? All this saying does is turn each of us against each other and stops us from truly being who we really are. Just like the saying of ” having the American dream”, we all think we know what this is for example, big house, white picket fence, two cars with garages, wife/husband, children, wealth and our own piece of the pie. Unfortunately throughout this Society of today, this American dream has caused us to step on each others shoe shine, to the point no matter what we do, nothing shines around us anymore. We all have our issues and our struggles throughout this journey of life, we all want the American dream and keep up with the Jones part of the pie, but unfortunately we have all gone the wrong way and find ourselves exerting all our energy at swimming up the stream of the waterfall, instead of making it easy and simply flowing as the current down this stream within this picture.
It is okay for some good fun and competition between us, but when this good fun and competition turns to ugliness, like we see around us today, you think we need to truly change and look deeply into everything that is around us? Competition between two Sports Teams is part of the game and the magic word is “game”. We as Individuals who watch these teams, have taken this competition to an all new level, a level that has turned us all against each other, cause we don’t see it as a game anymore, we see the friendly competition between two Teams and have turned this competition into, an ugly competition that has forced us to walk our paths throughout this journey of life, without truly being who we really are.
We all have a purpose in life, we all set our goals so we can find what our purpose truly is. I understand we all have our issues and struggles along our paths, but when we don’t address and fix these issues, the struggles will never end and we will never find out what our true purpose really is. Life is a journey that we all walk along a path, the journey may be the same, as the path and the purpose are all different to each of us, not everybody has to keep up with the Jones to achieve true happiness, as well as not everybody will achieve the American dream for true happiness also, true happiness comes from each of us, addressing the issues and fixing them, so we all can find our purpose and walk our paths in peace, with true happiness along this journey of life.
” The journey through life may be the same, but the path and the purpose is much different to each one of us”
” The struggles and issues of life may have us swimming up stream into the waterfall, but addressing the issues and fixing the struggles will have us swim down stream, making our paths more peaceful with happiness”
” good competition between us is okay, but when it turns ugly is when we have to change the game, to make the competition fun again”
