10 Things We Need To Think About More Often–Such As . . .

The Thinker2

There are nights when I lay awake for hours just thinking about what is going on around us. So–what is really going on and am I one of a few who sees things that apparently others don’t see or don’t care about?

In the interests of sharing these things, here are 10 observations I have made over the last few weeks. Let me know how many of them you have concerns about as well.

1. The closer we get to being a true multi-cultural nation the less we get to enjoy our own traditions and national identity.

2. The more money we earn–the harder we work–the less we can afford.

3. The more rights other groups enjoy the less freedom we seem to have.

4. The longer we live the more sick we become.

5. The more Mr. Harper (The Teflon Man) denies any involvement in some of the ongoing scandals the more those around him seem to end up in shackles. (But never him–nothing sticks.)
6. The older we get the faster time goes by us.

7. The older children get the smarter their parents become.

8. The more we depend on technology the less safe and secure we become.

9. The more we share our country with others the closer we get to being a minority.

10.The more we accept other spiritual beliefs the less we see evidence of our own.

Actually there are 15–I lied.

11.The longer we endure political correctness the closer we come to our own demise.

12.The more we continue to place our trust in those who have proven to be untrustworthy the greater the risk of losing the hopes and dreams we held for our children and their children.

13.By trying to enforce the unenforceable the weaker and more hopeless we become.

14.The more we allow entitlement to flourish unchecked the more restricted we become.

15.The more we leave things to be done for us the more they will get done to us.

A quote by Jay Leno:
“With hurricanes, tornadoes, fires out of control, mud slides, flooding, severe thunderstorms tearing up the country from one end to another, and with the threat of bird flu and terrorist attacks, are we sure this is a good time to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?”

There will be those who agree with none of these. There will be those who agree with some of these and there will be those who may agree with all of these. In any case please let me know what you are thinking and include your comments.

Anyways, that’s the way I see it.

Thanks for your time, Jim

  1. I think you think too much, However, I am intrigued by at least 2 of your observations (kidding), I really agree with 99% of what you said. However, have you noticed that “The longer we live, the more we forget”. I can’t remember what the 2% is that I disagreed with. Anyway, that’s how I see it. drk

    • Hi Dan–well I think that you are right to think that I think too much some times. But then when I think like that I don’t seem to get much done??I think? 2 eh? Well I guess that’s not bad–which two? I’m thinking that it’s not so much we forget as it is I can’t be bothered to remember. One thing for sure–the older I get the less I concern myself with stuff that really doesn’t involve me or stuff that I can’t influence in any way any how. Perhaps our heads just get full of stuff and there is little or no more room for stuff that really doesn’t matter. Hey-always good to hear from you–I hope all is well and that you are marching closer to your goals as the days go by–all the best–and thanks again for your comment–Jim
