Something to think on

Here is a great article that was sent to me that I believe says a lot. Some might differ of its meaning, but it’s a free speech world. Or is it? I will let you decide.

I used to think I was pretty much just a regular person, but I was born white, into a two-parent household which now, whether I like it or not, makes me privileged, a racist, and responsible for slavery.

I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today’s standards, makes me a fascist because I plan, budget, and support myself.

I went to High School, got into college, and have always held a job. But I now find out that I am not here because I earned it, but because I was “advantaged”.

I am heterosexual, which according to gay folks, now makes me a homophobe.

I am not a Muslim, which now labels me as an infidel.

I am older than 70, making me a useless eater who doesn’t understand Facebook, Instagram, or Snapchat.

I think and I reason, and I doubt much of what the ‘main stream’ media tells me, which makes me a Right-wing conspiracy nut.

I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive Canadian culture, making me a xenophobe.

I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual’s merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist.

I believe our system guarantees freedom of effort – not freedom of outcome or subsidies which must make me a borderline sociopath.

I believe in the defence and protection of Canada for and by all citizens, now making me a militant.

I am proud of our flag, what it stands for, and the many who died to let it fly, so I stand during our National Anthem – so I must be a racist.

Please help me come to terms with the new me because I’m just not sure who I am anymore! Funny – it all took place over the last 5 or 6 years!

If all this nonsense wasn’t enough to deal with, now I don’t even know which restroom to use… and these days I gotta go more frequently!

  1. Good morning George, this is so true. Our crazy world. Just can’t believe what is going on in our world today. Very, very sad for sure.

    1. Good Morning Nancy. Good to hear from you. Yep, it sure is a crazy world we live in at the moment. Not sure if it will get better or worse. Take care of yourself. GW
