What Happened To The World?

It’s a normal routine for many of us.  Wake up, do our business, put a pot of coffee on, turn on our computers and see what happened around the world while we slept. Ok, well, that’s my normal routine.  Ever wonder why there is never any happy things staring back at you from your favorite news feed?  It is mostly due to the fact that people do not have the same reaction to happy things as they do to tragic things, therefore, the news agencies report what sales.

Although I have put together my own news feed that reflects the news sources that I feel don’t beat up everyone, or appear to be biased, it’s still hard to find good news in the world these days.  You can check it out HERE if you like.

Where am I going with all this?  We continue to live in a world of uncertainty.  Everyone seems to have forgotten what living is all about.  Having grown up in the 1960’s, I remember when life was a heck of a lot simpler, and much more predictable.  You worked hard and spent quality time with your family.  The outside world wasn’t wired directly into your brain.  No smartphones, computers or social media.

Social media has made it possible for the entire world to know everyone else’s business.  Don’t get me wrong, it has a place in the grand scheme of things.  I make my living thanks to all the technical advances that didn’t exist when I was a kid.  I just feel like it has taken over our lives these days.

When I was a kid, and the electric went off, I continued playing or doing whatever I was doing.  Today, if the electric goes out, our kids start to panic, and withdraw into a corner.  They have no idea what to do, or any imagination left to do it with.

Today, the news agencies spend an incredible amount of their resources just trying to discredit the President.  The man was elected by the people…period.  The news agencies and those opposed to his style of government need to suck it up and get behind him, and get this country back on track.

We The People need to stop, take a deep breath, and hit the reboot button.  We need to get back to some fundamental grass roots and become self-sufficient and less reliant upon the Federal Government.
