I would like to say that it didn't bother me when someone claimed that my last post was "mindless rambling." But it did for a brief moment. Rambling? Yes, I've said that before. This is how I write. Mindless? No. Pointless? No. I know not everyone if anyone is going to like what I write. That's fine. But I do have a mind and I do have a point. Sometimes I think people get blinded by an opinion and can't see past that to find the point. Or, they create their own version of what was written by addding by assumption or maybe even consumption.
I have never been one to go with the crowd. I march to my own beat. I stand as President of my own Island of Misfit. I'm cool with that. I have my opinion on life and everything around me. Too many people just go along with the status quo because it's much more easy. Sometimes I wish I could do that. But my mind questions everything. Why this and why that?
Some may be confused as to where I stand politically. Well, I stand for equality. I stand for common sense. I hate greed. I hate income tax and all of it's loop holes. I don't hate the rich. I don't hate the poor.
This blog was created to make people think. Everything we do affects someone or something. When I write I don't care who I offend. I hope they take a second to see that I'm not insulting them. I'm just stating how I see things. And maybe I'm wrong. But maybe I'm right. If I can get one person to stop and think, then I was successful. I know my opinions are not popular and I really don't care.
For instance, unfortunately what makes America great also drags us down. Capitalism has led to greed. Freedom of Speech has led to vulgarity and pornography. A country born with the desire for freedom of religion has dismissed Christianity. The rich get richer, the poor are still poor, and the middle class is almost extinct. Not excactly the American Dream.
We live in the greatest country in the world. But we are not perfect. I will continue to bark at anything that I see is unjust or unfair. I will point out stupidity and hypocrisy. I will continue to profess what I believe.
This is my Island and I start it with I.
