Progress........................My thoughts!

My blogger buddy Raquel Carter wrote an interesting piece on her subjective views on the todays politics. Her writing, though subjective stirred up wonderful conversations.......after reading her piece by clicking HERE....Wonderful thoughts btw, so much that I had to send her my response on the subject. Better yet, my subjective views on what I'm sick of.............enjoy!


"What many people call 'Progress' is the exchange of one nuisance for another nuisance.....your words are incredibly powereful but the things that get me tired is our constant dependancy on politics, and our continuous blaming of one side on the lack of change in our society.....I am not a republican, so my being affected is not happening.....
Your words were in my opinion geared more towards the war than the state of our current society, but what happens now that Mr. President done sent our brothers and sisters to war? Should we pull them out immediately and leave that country to ruin? What are we going to do with the billions we've invested in the war, is it all for na'an?
Before I contemplate a change in office, I prefer a change from within. A change in thinking among all people within our age on how we can make change without worrying about the change in office. We should change what we are doing in this world; ignoring so many things for things that have little meaning. I don't see why we are giving pop icon status to an escort, or why the religious views of Will Smith or the escapades of Britney Spears really matters........we have the continuous troubles of Dafur....the people of Haiti who are so in turmoil that they are eating dirt cookies and are not being fed.......the Iraqi refugee crisis.....drugs being sent to our Country via submarines......the islamic militants ravaging Somalia........This continuous attention we pay for uselessness leaves me begging for change because in the absence of right, what do we have left?
I guess we have our mtv's, our bet's (same damn thing as the previous)....our tmz's our vh1's when what we lack is the r-e-s-p-e-c-t for our little 1nes being raised in this world that glorifies Paris instead of providing them the tools to dream of traveling to Paris.....glorify Beef, but fail to provide that protein the underprivalaged......give privalages to those who break rules, and continuously make rules to protect those who overstep their privalages......I'm sick of this presidentail race turned soap opera/race war....I'm sick of pop culture becoming the agenda for the days of our lives....I'm sick of people complaining about change while sitting on asses....I'm tired of my life being a never ending story of being tired that I feel like a tire.....no mater what revolution, I end up in the same position...

Basically I'm sick of living and having a veil put accross my face......rather than have my eyes jaded, I rather keep them closed.....out of sight, out of mind is how I prefer things to be....so I live in my mind where I can see clear blue skies, because that is the heavens cannot be tainted by man...."

Lucky.........
