Hippie's Search Here Man.....

We are NOT the same...

Remember when I said that I might accidentally offend some readers when I start writing about my take on things? Well, it might be that time! I'm going to jump right in to race, gender, and culture...I'm going to spew out the thoughts and opinions I have in my sometimes twisted little brain...Lohi (pronounced Low He), my little brain mate, might be the only one that really understands...

It's clear to me, now more than ever, that our political, social, and moral decline is in part due to the focus and importance we put on equality...During and after the recent protest and shootings in Dallas, all of the local and National television networks kept flashing to different politicians, high ranking cops, and various "activists", to listen to their crap about why this was happening...A very common message was that we're all the same and we should love each other and be equal...GUESS WHAT? WE'RE NOT!

What is this model human being that everyone wants to be equal to? Strong like a man? Emotional like a woman? Religious like a Pope? Smart like a genius? What color? How tall? What age? Fat as me?

Dig this....Jump on the reality bus man! By trying so hard to convince yourself and others that black is the same as white, women are the same as men (that just pissed someone off!), Jews are the same as Muslims, Mexicans are the same as Portuguese, and Bud is the same as Bud Light, we've lost sight of the issues at hand..We are not the same so "they" need to stop trying to act as if we are...Everything this country has done to attempt to promote equality has just created more chaos and segregation...Every time a black man or woman gets in front of a camera, a comment has to be made about slavery or prison population or cop shootings...It keeps the hatred alive...Every time a white man or woman gets in front of a camera, a comment has to be made about how many black friends they have, or worse, they try to rap...It keeps the hatred alive...I could go on and on about every race, gender, and culture, and how every comment made to support "their own" keeps the hatred alive...

Historically, the United States hasn't done such a groovy job keeping the peace with "others"...Look at the Indians, Hawaiians, Alaskans, Blacks, Southerners (Civil War)...Go further back and check out the Irish and Scottish slaves (all white) in Colonial America...Pretty much every race and culture has been mistreated in America...In most all of these cases, it was legal and accepted to own a wagon or two full of our ancestors...Get over it man! A hundred years from now maybe the latest strain of human being
the LGBT community, will be protesting in the streets because they were so mistreated when they didn't have their own bathrooms back in the day...

The hippie in me wants to believe man...It would be far-out if everyone was past their own personal demons and saw humanity living and working together peacefully...History has taught us many things,,Not only things about America, but things about the world...Every race, gender, and culture digs killing for what "their own" believe in...It may be racial, religious, gender power, political power, land, and a lot more dumb-ass reasons!

I don't have a lot of faith in our system of Government, especially when we're telling the world that these two knuckleheads on the left are our best to run things...You know what man? I'm kind of glad I'm getting old, and I'm kind of glad that I'm loosing my marbles...I won't have to care about this mess we're in for much longer...I am sad though for my beautiful grand-kids...They're in for quite a trip man, and not the good kind!

Peace
