Just Speaking Candidly

Hi guys and gals… I just wanted to speak candidly for a minute if y’all don’t mind. I have been watching the news and following social media trends for the past few months (longer, lol) and I have come to some conclusions…

Let’s start with sex: I am not anti LGBTQ, I have lots of friends and family in that community. I understand when watching TV, that they might be offended with heterosexual sex scenes because I for one am super uncomfortable with homosexual sex scenes. It seems as if with all the new rights for the LGBTQ community that the television/movie world feels the need to include them and their real lifestyles. If us watching their sex scenes and them watching our sex scenes makes both uncomfortable then why not eliminate sex in television and movies? You can allude to what is about to happen but just don’t show the down and dirty of either. This is not hard, in fact it is very reasonable. The other thing about sex is glorifying pedophilia. What most common folk don’t understand is that behavior is learned. Yes, there are a rare few that are born a certain way but in my opinion most of the negative behavior exhibited by children is learned from someone close to them. My main reason for not showing this on television or in movies is because it teaches criminals to be better at what they do! Shows like Law and Order are often based on real cases and showing how someone got caught also teaches them how not too. (Side note: any criminal behavior like killing, robbing, terrorism or rape).

The next issue I would like to bring up is how knowledge is an expense. Yes there is free knowledge out there but most higher levels of education cost! We do not have many apprenticeships in this day and age. I personally have experience in welding but only for art and I would like to work on cars but I have to pay for that knowledge because no shop will hire me and let me work as an apprentice. I have the basic skills I just need more focalized training on mufflers and things like that. (Not to mention I am a woman). We tell our kids that college is the next step out of high school but how many college kids actually graduate? How many of those graduates end in jobs in their field and are happy? I could give you the stats but you learn by doing your own research. Not to mention the amount of debt incurred while attending a college. We don’t promote trade schools which in my opinion is way better than a four year university. I literally regret college… $40,000 in debt and still no degree, lol. Seriously when our kids come out of high school and if they go to college they still don’t have the skills they need to make it in life. Which is why soon I will propose a new education system and would like support from like minded individuals.

The last thing I would like to talk about before I go take a nap is distractions. Distractions that keep you from being the best you that you can be. I would like for us all to go through this, I am talking to the readers but mainly to myself. I need this more than anyone! Not afraid to say it either. If I had money I would pay for a life coach. Whomever came up with that idea is like a super genius. We let TV, phones, computers as well as our friends and family distract us. Even our jobs at times. You may work but you want to start your own business but if you keep taking your work home with you, you will never have time for YOUR business! Does that make sense? All I’m saying is spend more time with your family and less time working. Build gardens and have yard sales and fish fry’s to make extra money but spend time with your family. That’s the main distraction! The break down of the family unit. It doesn’t matter if that unit is hetero or LGBTQ… it needs to be united and kids should be raised by their parents not babysitters and teachers. It’s not their jobs! They distract is with world news like this Ukrainian war so that we don’t focus on them taking away the Bill of Rights here in the United States.

Guys, I’m super tired and I will continue this later on, feel free to express your opinions in the comments and I don’t mind suggestions of topics y’all think I should cover. Thanks for reading and don’t forget to subscribe!
