The amount of pure lies and fabrications people put on postings and those who read and actually believe it is what bothers me (and bothers me a lot). I was brought up to tell the truth and to have things that I want to remain private and not to advertise some stupid thing I may have done. I like to tell silly stories on myself just to show some that I am just as stupid as you and just as silly too. I know everyone out there has done things they wish they had not. Some were really bad, others not too bad except in the minds of those who were involved.
We would no way allow others to know some of those things where today our younger generations tend to put everything out for everyone to see and pass on. Going electronic may not be the best thing for society and the way it is being used today only reinforces that feeling.
I have no faith in our Federal government no matter what party is in power. I do not care to have my emails, phone calls, what I watch on TV or what I buy or look at on the Internet known to the government. As it is, we are on camera a lot and do not even realize it. I was at Walmart in Greensburg the other day and counted 21 cameras just looking in on the parking lot. If they have that many on the parking lot just how many do they have in the store, and where? When you go to the bank you are on camera; the court house, on camera; any government building or agency, yep, on camera. I think many of us are on camera more than many actors.
We are losing our ability to neighbor, to understand the meaning of reality. We want to be the main attraction and to do so do a lot of really stupid things. We like “reality” shows on TV. I see nothing about reality in any I have ever looked at, which I admit is few. If I disagree or dislike something I don’t yell to all who want to listen about it, I just don’t watch it or buy it. I don’t try to make others adhere to my feelings, I allow them to make up their own minds. I don’t believe politicians anymore, none of them. I have no faith on what we are told by our government; they seem to tell us only what they want us to hear. I feel that the government also tends to cook the books on numbers that they release to the public. They allow things they want leaked to be leaked then show indignation about it.
