In My Last Editorial . . . I wrote about a Texas RV Neighbor, who was Incensed with me, because I told him . . . IF HE DOESN'T KNOW & DOESN'T CARE about his own National Politics, but knows enough to HATE “Trump” - even though he can't explain why he Hates “Trump” . . . What Right Does He Have To Vote? Which made him Indignant, because, as he said . . . I Served My Country & Earned The Right To Vote, and went-on, to Insult me for being a Canadian, who should Stay in Canada and not Return to the USA.
So Much For A LEFTIST . . . Who Seems to be OK With Open Borders when it Suits the LEFTISTS. I never Wore a Uniform, BUT NO ONE CAN EVER SAY THAT I HAVEN'T PAID MY DUES & STILL DO!
And No One . . . Can Ever Say - that just because you Wore a Uniform, that it gives you the Right & Privilege NOT TO CARE, When Your Not Caring . . . Causes Great National Grief.
I Should Feel Bad That I Hurt His Feelings . . . But In His Words – “I Don't Care”.
And Why Should I Care . . . if this Guy Doesn’t Care Enough about what’s Happening in his Own Country, enough to be Informed, and to Vote for a Reason, Opposed to Propaganda?
IT GOT ME THINKING . . .
The First Year Anne, Stryker, April The Cat & I came to Texas by RV, 5-Years Ago, I was Astounded by the Number of Inconsiderate & Selfish Drivers there were on the Greater Austin Roads.
I Couldn’t Believe . . . That when I Indicated to Change Lanes, Especially while Schlepping a Monster RV, Instead of Drivers Slowing Down to Let Me In, most Sped-Up, because . . . GOD FORBID, I was going to take a Few Feet of their Turf, and Perhaps Delay the Destination of their Journey by Seconds.
I have been Accused from Time-To-Time (According To Anne – All The Time), of being a Pissed-Off Driver, who gets Angry at People who Hog a Lane, or Won't show the Courtesy of Letting another Driver to Cut-In, or Drive Too Slowly in a Passing Lane, or Signal their Turn only when they Begin to Make their Turn, if they Signal at all . . . OR TEXT WHILE DRIVING – EVEN AT A LIGHT.
I'm Not Frightened In One Way Or Another To Voice My Displeasure.
Anne’s kind of Worried . . . that one Day, I'll find myself going Toe-To-Toe on the Road with a Jerk who doesn’t like to be Called-Out for being a Jerk . . . Since it’s happened before. But that was when I was a Somewhat Younger-Man.
AND THIS IS THE PROBLEM WITH OUR SOCIETY . . . PEOPLE DON'T CARE!
It’s All About Disrespect . . . For Yourself & Others.
It’s Against The Law To Drink & Drive – Yet People Still Do It!
It’s Against The Law To Text & Drive . . . Yet People Still Do That Too! And as far as I’m Concerned, the Basic Penalty for the FIRST OFFENCE of Texting & Driving, even when Stopped at a Light - should be . . . The Immediate Loss of Driver’s License for a Minimum of One Year . . . And the Loss of Whatever Vehicle that Person was Driving at the Time.
I am also Furious with People who take their Shopping Cart to their Car, and then just Leave the Shopping Cart in the Parking Lot, or Shoved up on a Grassy Knoll, when there is no Shortage of Shopping Cart Corrals Close Enough.
I Detest People . . . who aren’t Considerate enough to Hold a Door Open for People coming through after them. And I Similarly Detest People who Don’t Say Thank you to a Person who did Hold a Door Open for them.
SO . . . When we Read, Hear or Watch the Number of People, Especially amongst the Elitist LEFT, who Love to Lecture the “Little People”, as they themselves Cheat & Steal their Way for their Children to Attend Elitist Schools, Colleges & Universities . . . Where’s The Surprise?
We Are Living In A Society . . . where the Rules Seem to Apply to Everyone – But To Some . . . Where Teachers, Parents & the Media are too Busy Fulfilling their Own Selfish Agenda by Hook or Crook . . . Where the End Justifies the Means – And It’s Everyone Else's Fault For Whatever Happens But Their Own . . . To Extoll The Virtues Of Common Sense & Decency.
I MAKE NO APOLOGY FOR BEING A HARD-ASS . . . BECAUSE YOU DON'T CARE:
Because You Don't Care Means Squat To Me . . . There Are Far Too Many People Who Don't Care, or are Too Self Absorbed to Care, or are Too Selfish to Care, or are Too Stupid to Care, or are so Machiavellian that they Cater to the People who Don't Care . . . All of which is Reflected in our Mutual Societies, where People who Don't Care . . . are Voting for Horrible Representatives, who are Destroying the Respective Society . . . Of People Who Do Care, Which I Take Very Personally.
If You Don't Care . . . Don't Vote – and Don’t Cry Me a River, when things aren’t going the way you think they should go. Especially when you're not getting your “Entitlement” - because you Didn't Care Enough to know the Truth when it Meant Something.
By Not Caring . . . The World Is Heading To Hell In A Hand-Basket.
THE MUELLER INQUIRY IS OVER . . . BUT THAT’S NOT EVEN CLOSE TO THE TRUTH:
The Government & Pundits are Saying that this 2-Year (Plus) Inquiry Cost the Taxpayers $25-Million. I don’t believe that. Not even for a Second. I think this Inquiry Cost the Taxpayers far More than $25-Million. But Let’s Say That It Did.
How much did this Travesty Cost the Federal Government in Lost Time and Important International Opportunities, Especially in Trade, as the World Looked at American Congressional Insiders, Who Did All They Could To Savage Their President?
How much did this Inquiry Cost the many People who had to Defend themselves against a Rogue Justice Department & FBI who were Attempting a Coup D'état?
What was the Human (Social & Mental) Cost to the People who were Psychologically Brutalized by the Nazi, Stasi, KGB . . . Tactics Of Mueller’s FBI?
And What Was The Cost To The Trust Of The American People . . . In America’s Federal Judicial System? I Think It’s Irreparable.
So . . . When the Pundits Agree that the Mueller Inquiry Cost the American People $25-Million, they are so Far from the Truth, like most Everything Else they Report, because No One will ever Know the Real Cost of this Travesty . . . That Can Never Be Repaired Or Repaid.
And That Too . . . Is Because People Don't Care!
