Hello, folks!!!! 🙂
I’m asking once again that you consider donating/investing a small amount of money to help me get through this next few weeks while I’m recuperating from an accident and trying to find new sources of income.
I don’t know if I’m not making myself clear or if the truth just isn’t very persuasive, which is pretty depressing. This exercise has become almost a social experiment to discover what will and won’t move people to empathize and then materially aid a person in need whom they profess to care about. 🙂 😉
I think this pretty much seals the argument that we have some kind of “safety net” in this society. What a pathetic aside. Do you remember when Bill Clinton was going to “end welfare as we know it” and then everyone laughed and clapped with glee, ignorant of the logical conclusions of such folly? It’s like when Virginia decided one day to just get rid of the car tax. A huge revenue stream just cut off at once, without a simpleton’s rustle of cognition as to what the consequences might be.
But I digress!!! 🙂
I know I, even now, have it much better than so many others of our brothers and sisters all across this country, suffering needlessly. But staying silent when I’m seeing potentially imminent catastrophe (sort of) seems like the wrong thing to do also. I would challenge you who might have formed an opinion or judged me without thinking about what you DON’T know about my life and my experiences. As transparent as I’ve been online in recent years, mostly to ensure that my voice would not be silenced by the idiotic courts of Mississippi, there are many things I’ve refrained from exposing for various reasons. So, try to remember that this is water, you don’t know what you don’t know, and you can either choose to treat people as though they are as honorable as yourself and give them the benefit of the doubt, or you can fall prey to fear and perceived scarcity and treat your brother as an enemy until proven otherwise. I’ve learned that all we have to fear is fear itself. Fear and worry have paralyzed me throughout my life without my even realizing it at the time. I’ve learned to discard those things as soon as I can detect them and get on with the business of living in the moment and making the best choice possible right now. Which is interesting in how I ended up in this situation. 🙂 I think that doing the right thing isn’t always going to get you everything you want or think you need or shower you with gold and luxuries. But that’s not why you do the right thing. You do the right thing because you know it is right, regardless of the outcome. The ends do not justify the means. This stupid, top-down method of living life and gauging success is hopelessly imperiled to lead us to more of what we have already become accustomed to, this sad, disconnected society where everyone is pretty much in it for themselves. But not everyone!!! 🙂 I think only the smarty-pantses out there are choosing that route. I have faith that those that aren’t on the news and TV every night are actually doing the right thing and they outnumber the smarty-pantses and I hope they flip things sooner rather than later.
Okay, I’m done for now. 😀 Thank you for reading. If you can spare a few bucks, it would make me and my kitty-cats very happy if you could send them this way. I was serious about what I said earlier and elsewhere about investing in me. I’ve thought about this concept as a way for people to pretty much become their own investment fund that pays out rewards to investors based on the success of the enterprise. In this case, the enterprise is my manifesting my hopes and dreams of living a peaceful life with a new family and community that I can construct around myself, or maybe by some good fortune be adopted by. I would be HAPPY to pay dividends to anyone who considers my purposes in life to be noble and worthwhile.
Okay, now I’m done. :-DDDDD
