The Story of the Star Bangled Banner
by Richard Wilbur
1) Why do people address
politicians by telling them that they must stop people from killing each other
in the black community?
Has anyone ever asked and understood the implication of this
question - Who kills the most blacks, by a huge margin, in the black community?
If you don't know the answer to the previous question then RESEARCH IT. The issue
is very complicated but the simplistic answer is why haven't the people involved
been taught the morals and principles that are acceptable to live by, i.e. life
is valuable, tolerance, force is rarely a solver of problems, and victimhood is
mostly a product of a lack of personal responsibility.
2) I am offended by "Black History Month" as it is just another
divisive way of separating us all which creates friction and hatred. But then
again where is the "Asian History Month", the "Latin American Month", the
American Month", the "LGBT Month", the "Me Too Month", etc. etc.? There are
twelve months in the year and in America they are the Human Race Months as in we
are all one and we should concentrate on being human and all that that entails
in being Proud Americans. We in the USA have become a Nation of 'tribes' and
'tribal identity' is destroying the very fabric that the USA was founded upon.
We are and should always remains a 'melting pot' of people and never a people of
a multitude of different identities and agendas.
3) As of the date of this writing (March 19, 2020) there has been
just over 100 deaths from the Coronavirus in the USA. There has been National,
State, and local quarantines and warnings and endless media coverage on how to
stop the virus and what is being required of people and businesses, including
closing many businesses and preventing hospitals to do any 'unnecessary'
surgery. I understand the concern but believe it is an over reaction. However,
what did this country do about the 'normal' seasonal virus that has killed over
20,000 people in the USA, which is also present during the Coronavirus outbreak.
4) Yes there should be
a sidewalk built on the street where the recent tragedy (5/23/2020 -
occurred of three teens killed while walking. I have another concern also - why
the hell were three teenagers of 13, 14, and 15 years of age outside walking in
the first damn place at 1:00AM!!?
5) Equality IS NOT hiring someone because they are the
first, or because of their skin color, race, gender or lack thereof, nor their
religion or lack thereof - the aforementioned acts are actually the definition
of racism and inequality. Hiring should be based on qualifications and character
ONLY and that is real EQUALITY. When you hire/pick/choose someone to do
something based solely on their skin color/religion/who they know/who you think
you owe, then you are sliding down the backside of a big mountain toward
disaster, corruption, inefficiency and total oblivion. Just look at our
politicians as their 'identity/tribal politics' are the arrows to the heart of
equality, equity and fairness.
6) The consideration or even addressing a potential Judge
appointee's political leanings is tantamount to saying our judicial system is
not fair or even just. The argument that a judge is a liberal or conservative is
the deadly slope that we have been rolling down. Judges are not suppose to be
liberal or conservative but they are suppose to be “objective and make decisions
based on the Constitution and law” and without any predilection or influence of
7) BLM being nominated for the Noble Peace Prize is like
the KKK being nominated for the Nobel Tolerance Prize.
8) Just remember, It's not a lie if you have been
conditioned to believe it.
So... be more open-minded, tactful and tolerant of others and start thinking for
yourself. Question the data that enters your brain.
9) How the heck does 13.4% of the USA population get away
with total dictating to the 86.4%?
10) Joseph Biden = Neville Chamberlain
