All about Grandchildren? For two solid hours, the lady sitting next to a man on an airplane had told him about her grandchildren. She had even produced a plastic-foldout photo album of all nine of the children. She finally realized that she had dominated the entire conversation on her grandchildren. “Oh, I’ve done all the talking, and I m so sorry. I know you certainly have something to say. Please, tell me… what do you think of my grandchildren?” Link: https://www.free-funny-jokes.com/funny-parent-jokes.html
-1Let me begin by saying that i'm completely unsure about the origin of the prevailing attitude of self-righteousness, that has made its home in the minds of, at one time, a compassionate and understanding people. Not only are we ignoring the problems, pain, and suffering of poverty, unemployment, and starvation, but now it seems that it has become fashionable to belittle and degrade the poor as well. Facts are also facts, and i know more than few people who, had it not been for the system that they now want to deny others access to, they would not be here today. The percentage that will agree is miniscule at best, but right is right and we all know whats right in our heart of hearts. Beginning around 1620, a ship full of homeless people, fleeing from oppression, poverty, and the tyrannical rule of an elitist government, and economical system, landed here in north america. The rich had the poor doing all the work, but kept the majority of the money so the poor got tired of it and left, and came here. Of course they brought that same attitude with them, for when they got here they eventually took the land from the people who already lived here, and started their own little oppressive country. However, after MUCH bloodshed, mainly by the lesser equipped individuals, we eventually reached a point where things had fairly evened out,not completely, but as close as we had ever been, before, or since. According to all the polls that i could find on the net, the decades of the sixties and seventies are generally considered to be the best, and most balanced time in american history. There was a thriving middle class, a fulcrum if you will, between the rich and the poor. Growth in music and art. Lessons of war were actually being learned, and people were at least TRYING to care about each other, free love and all that. Health care was affordable, more so than it is today. There was food and jobs, people cared about their planet,(their home), and they didn't seem to mind sharing with their fellow man because there was plenty to go around, at least it appeared that way. We even had people that took up the call of unity, Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., John Lennon, to name just a few. Of course, as in every time period, there were dark spots, but they were fewer and and father between than they are today. That brings us to now. Today are many things going on in this country that are not only being swept under the rug, they are being celebrated. The, at one time, balanced economy, is in complete turmoil, due mostly to the fulcrum being broken. The middle class is becoming all but non-existent. Therefor money is harder to get, and even harder to keep. The social security system, put in place to protect us in our old age, is being used to pay bills in the present, thereby eliminating our future nest egg. There are 3.5 million homeless people on the streets, and 39% of that total are children under the working age( so when I hear people say "homeless people need to get a job it really chaps my ass (pardon my english) because a third of them are kids.). Eighty percent of that total, which hads risen since the most recent posting of numbers, live in inner cities, and are regularly, figuratively spat upon be their fellow citizens who now want to make it harder for these people,( again a third of them kids), to get food, money, or medical care, in affect killing their fellow countrymen. The remaining remnants of middle class families, weather they realize it or not, are but one lost job away from joining the homeless ranks. A far cry from the two before mentioned decades. Our government has put us in debt, to the tune of over 16 trillion dollars, and everybody thinks its one guy doing that. It now costs as much, in gas, to get to work in a month as it does to pay your rent. The people are being placated to these issues by technology, which is not only helping to sever the bonds of human contact, but hypnotizing us into a fantasy land, crafted by those with the money so that we don't see the devastation that our indifference is causing. Global warming, overpopulated prisons, uneducated children, false profits, and a citizen base, so focused on keeping their own head above water, that they push the heads of other, less fortunate people under. Unfortunately this is today's America. Now i could go on presenting facts that point to the steady and seemingly irreversible decline of America, however i would rather point in the direction of what can be done to solve this. The fact is, weather you believe it or not, there is only one way out. TOGETHER. If we have two dollars, give one to your neighbor. Sharing and caring. Those who have made it to the top need to reach down and give a hand to those who haven't yet. Regardless of your personal feelings of that person. We are all the same family . Children under the same god. No man left behind. No matter what. Everybody makes excuses for why they don't care about about their fellow man, he doesn't work hard enough, she's not smart enough, they aren't attractive enough, lazy, ignorant, unrefined, not in my league, to tall, to short, not the right color, not a member of this country, it all boils down to one thing, those who think they are better, trying to exile those who aren't, because they fear being one of the outcasts. The fact is we all ignorant. ignorant to this one thing. Throughout history, governments and rulers have used the propaganda of the class war to keep people fighting among themselves while they sit in their thrones, laughing at our stupidity. We are all gods children, and that fact alone entitles us to everything on this planet. Life is not a race to the finish, with most stuff. It's a walk through the park, hand in hand together. Because believe this, if we don't do it together, none of us will make it at all. If we continue this line of thinking there will be nothing to leave to those children and grandchildren that we all say we are trying to protect. History has proven this time, and time, again. When you finally before your maker, and he asks you what you did with your life, and you tell him, I got a house and two cars, made lots of money, and bought all kinds of stuff. He's going to you, what about your brothers and sisters.
-1IS THE WORD ''NIGGA/NEGRO'' RACIST AND MY OPINION ON THE WORD No, I think it depends on the content in which the word is being used...If You get a person saying it to his friends just joking around and that's all it is...and As long as they don't get too comfortable with using it and start saying to to everyone they meet then it shouldn't be a problem , because if you do that then your just plain dumb anyway Lool these people get knocked out before they even finish saying the word if they say it to the wrong people lool But on the other hand the more people do get used to it and think of it as being cool , the less racist and offensive it gets ,because lets be real unless u over the age of 45 you aint offended, too just feel its disrespect and the further we get from the racist age which has passed in the mid 90's then the less offence the word should be.Its only common sense , Your grandchildren aint going to give a fuck about what their great great grandfather was called back in there day and that it was actually offensive...Its Too long ago I doubt any of you motherfuckers give a fuck about whether your great great grandfather was offended by a particular word... because you don't even know this man lool and yeah it might be your family and still people do get emotional about it but all I can say is there is power in the words...huge Power within the everyday words people use.But would there be power if people didn't get offended about stuff that happened ages ago. I mean would you get offended if someone dissed your ex from 20 years ago ? No, because in order for u to get over those negative feelings u let go of that bitch...Why ? Because its useless since its over and it don't mean shit. And soon the people talking shit bout your ex will stop because its useless and they aint getting no emotions from you. Let me give you another example...As A kid if you ever had a bully or someone annoying you or bothering you (am talking about anything irritating.) and you would get pissed about it, the same person annoying the fuck out of u will love it , they will enjoy it and carry on. But your father or mother gives u advice and says ''forget about this kid he's just looking for shit to do ... Because he aint got anything else to do he bothers u ... And u know why because u get offended/pissed , you need to ignore him or just laugh about it. In time he will get bored and stop'' You try this method and it works. The same principle applys to this word... If you truly want the racism of this word erase it will go if people just forget bout the word and laugh about it. Am not saying there will be no more racism because there will always be racism and at this time of my life I truly do not have the intelligence to know weather we can get rid of it or not ... But the hurtful and racist pain which is given off by the word will erase.And if you don't believe me let me give you a example... And if you truly do put your self in this persons shoes you will understand... Allright your an mature intelligent adult black male and your in the supermarket and you are doing well with your life , you pull up in your new car , you look good , your dressed well , you smell good , you have a gorgeous wife by your side. Your doing very well (you understand everything I have talked about today , all of that is already in your mind...) You are doing real good... And there is a racist white/Mexican/Asian or even another black man and he sees your doing well and he isn't... Ofcouse this man will instantly start hating. But this mad is so racist and a hater to such level that he will walk past you and says an extremely racist and offence comment. (Now your a intelligent man and you understand that flipping you will not get you anywhere) All you do is laugh at the person and say ''Am sorry am doing so well , maybe someday you will understand how much that nothing means to me'' Wink, chuckle and walk off. Now I don't know about you but if I was a racist man and I am hating on the well being of this man ''I will be so off put it will most probably change the whole way that I actually think.'' I mean I understand it might be very hard to first get used to it. Personally I have a short temper and sometimes anger gets the best of me... And at first everytime I heard a racist comment (not just to me , to anyone) I would just completely blow and loose it , but after some time and increase in my actual intelligence I treated these racist comments as jokes. If I heard someone say ''you aint shit you **'' I would just laugh in this persons face and say ''you don't even know'' this would leave the person stunned and not know what to say. I am telling you brothers and sisters, this word should not offend you , you should rise above all this bullshit , hold your head high and not let someones stupid choice of words effect you.You just live your life and since the sky is the limit ... You go aim for the stars Thank you very much for reading my oppinion and advice , if there are any issues you would like me to talk about or need help in any everyday troubles.. Be my guest to ask me any questions and i can gurente i will try my best to answer your questions, thank you More
