How Long?

This is a question I ask myself almost every single day. How long are we going to put up with the abuse we have suffered under for so long now? I always imagined there would come a time when people would say “Enough is enough” and do something, but no. Minds have become so brainwashed for so long now, I have to wonder if people are even aware of what is going on. I hope so, otherwise it makes my hope drain away. We are so backwards in our thinking, the insanity of what we are doing to ourselves doesn’t even hit home! Well it is time it did!

I saw an article about a teacher here in the States who spent a day panhandling the roadways in search of the money she needs for this coming years class at school. There is so little money available she often spends up to $2000.00 of her own money to buy necessary things for her kid’s classroom. As always happens with me, I hear or see something and my mind quickly expands to take in the bigger picture than what I am seeing or hearing. It did this time as well. So what is wrong with this scenario? I’ll tell you. Why do people who play games for a living such as football or baseball or act in movies or television make millions of dollars, while the people who teach our children earn next to nothing? The same goes for the police as well. They protect us yet we pay them very little. It’s because we have allowed our priorities to be buried and forgotten. We no longer can see what is right or wrong.

Think about it for a moment.  Ask yourself this: Does it make any sense that we place the education of our own children and their hope for a better future beneath the importance of paying a ball player or an actor? Think more closely about what I just said. How did we get here?  Watch the animals out in the wild someday with their young. They will kill for their young, they stay with their young and raise them by their side, yet we think so little of our children it seems that we would rather pay ball players and actors millions yet provide very little funding to teach our children a good education or pay our police a decent wage to protect our asses everyday! Take the police away for one day and all hell would break loose yet we choose not to think about such things. They are being taunted and killed daily!

It is time we get our priorities back in line again. We pay the ball players and actors way more than we even pay the President. Really?  So many generations have grown up believing this is the way things ‘should be’ that we no longer even question our actions. Are they correct actions? Should we rethink them? We just do as we’ve been taught be it right or wrong. When injustice is exposed in Washington we get the same excuse of   ” Well, that is just the way things are in Washington”. It is this kind of living we need to change in places of power and more importantly in ourselves. We rarely ask any questions any longer and look where we have ended up. Our priorities are upside down and inside out now. If we stop for one minute and really think about things like this we can see how out of touch we have become and we need to get back to where we should be!

If we ourselves are not safe, then how can life go forward and become something meaningful? It can’t. If we are killed our hopes and dreams are killed as well and yet we attack the very people protecting us and pay them next to nothing to do this dangerous job. We long to have our children grow up and be successful and happy yet we are letting schools crumble with age and pay the teachers responsible for our children very little to do their job. We are guilty for allowing this injustice to continue, for not demanding better from ourselves. We don’t stand up or scream out to demand changes be made to shift this injustice and make things right for once. We sit and watch our own political system play the blame game with each other everyday so I guess we can play the blame game as well.

No! It is high time we get ourselves together. Stop existing in this fake, distorted world we find ourselves drowning in and at least make our own worlds sane and our priorities strong and powerful. I certainly hope people don’t fall back asleep now that election time is over! There may be a new administration in Washington but the swamp is not drained and the same garbage continues to rule the day. The health care bill is a sham just like everything else they try to pump out and lay at our feet. Where is the ability to get insurance across state lines in the bill? Where is the reining in of the greedy Pharmaceutical industry to end the price gouging and make things fair? Why are Insurance companies still being allowed to over charge for pathetic coverage and not cover alternative medicine at all? The injustice is very much alive and well and it is OUR responsibility to drain the swamp to save our own lives.

Everything will continue to stay upside down and inside out until we refuse to put up with it anymore. If we can’t change what goes on in Washington and around the world in other Governments, then we must change our own lives, NOW! We can all be hero’s and help others out and in doing so inspire others to do the same. Find ways to leave the system and do things on your own terms. Reach out to others and offer them a hand up not a hand out. Say no to the system instead of always saying yes. Recharge your brain’s firing pins and start to think for yourself again and stop letting Government tell you how things should or will be. No, it’s how we the people want things to be. If we want things to be better, we ourselves have to be better. That is our challenge for the future!
