Social Media in a developing Unsocial world

Technology is a wonderful thing! Or is it? 20 years ago people actually picked up a phone and dialed the person they wished to "speak" with or they hung out together. Today it is a simple scroll through address books on cell phones, or text messaging and BOOM you're connected. Yes, that is a great thing, but here lies the issues, in my humble opinion, how many actually memorize phone numbers today? I remember back in the day I knew my family and friends phone numbers by heart. Today I'm lucky I recall my own phone number. On top of that, how many people prefer to text than actually speak to another person? I am finding this more and more as time passes and technology becomes quicker. This wonderful tool called the cell phone is used more and more for data and texts than actual talking on the phone.

Teenagers sitting in the back seat of a car, back in my day talked to each other either loudly or through whispers, today they text each other while they are literally sitting next to one another. Lets not over look the now popular use of acronyms instead of speaking plain, clear English (or whatever their language is). Oh this is not all about cell phone usage, it also includes computers. Social networks or websites like FaceBook have now become the "new" way to communicate with our friends. I am not looking down on all the technical advances we have made, what does sadden me is that with these great tools, society as a whole are becoming more introvert unless they are sitting in front of a screen.

Hell kids today are speaking to other kids all over the world via their video games, which in itself is very cool. The sad side is they are not hanging out with their local neighborhood kids and actually LIVING outside the home or away from a TV or computer screen. I cannot even go out to lunch or dinner with my adult daughter and not watch her text messaging people while we eat. Drives me insane most of the time. Now back to FaceBook and the likes of social sites, what is the trend going on today? People constantly posting their every move in status updates, what is upsetting them, what is making them happy and so forth. I'll tell you, nothing I want to know more than a friend suffering from diarrhea of the mouth on a daily basis, it's what I live for!!

I have nothing better to do then read about their panties being in a twist over something so minute it is comical. Those I label under the group of FML'ers (Fuck My Lifers), otherwise know as EMO's. Oh you can sit there and try to brighten their day with a positive message to them, but guess what tomorrow you will be doing the same thing. The internet has been wonderful for so many reasons but it is also a strain on tolerance for the whine asses of the world. Shit lets not forget the keyboard warriors or internet bullies....oh hell that's a whole other write up in itself. And a comical one at that, I get a kick out of people becoming so upset over something a complete stranger said to them. Really? Are you that insecure that the words of a stranger ruins your entire day??? Grow a pair or get off the internet.

My point...shit not sure if I have one other than perhaps get out of the house more, pick up the cell phone and actually TALK to a person not text them, stop advertising you are suffering from a gapping, sandy, bleeding vagina and grow a pair. Truthfully very (and I mean very) few people give a rats ass about your dinner burnt on the stove and now you have to eat shitty pizza for dinner! If you want to share with the world fine...share something funny, uplifting, and thought provoking. But if all you wish to share is "shitty life" syndrome then exercise the use of that damn cell phone and call a friend who actual gives a shit! Cause honestly I highly doubt me or many others truly give a flying fuck.

Controversy over gun control

OK folks seriously wake the fuck up!!!

I was not born and raised in a household where my parents were gun fanatics or hunters or any of those things. I was raised to respect guns though by my father, who is a retired Marine. If we did have guns in the house, I certainly did not know about them.

I am not going to pretend here I know all the ins and outs of this very heated controversy but what I am intellegent enough to understand is CRIMINALS do not follow laws. The politicians and/or government can ban all the guns they want, the only thing they will achieve is unarming law abiding citizens and creating more victims of deadly assault weapens.

Hell I can even say that some of the assault weapons people may own, in my humble opinion, are over the top in neccesity. But who am I to take away their hobby and/or passion for guns. Providing they are purchased legally and so forth what the fuck is the big deal? Oh some can come back with a list of articles of this person using those legally owned guns to go on a rampage....I get it I do. BUT the reality of it is this, how many people in this coutry who legally owns their guns go on rampages? Let me say the statistics are very low.

The issue here is, lets face it people, guns do not load themselves and decide to go kill people. CRIMINALS and unstable people make those choices, but also keep in mind those types don't always use guns either. If they don't have a gun they can use whatever else they choose....knives, baseball bats, I think you get my point here. Or at least I hope you do. Until any one has been a victim of a crime and knows that feeling of absolute helplessness to defend their home and family or been car jacked or whatever the case may be you just do not understand.

I have personally never been a victim of them either but I will say this on the matter, I would much rather know I have the ability to defend/protect my home and children from some piece of shit. If you want the right to not own a gun and not protect your family, that is YOUR right to do so, but do not take away my rights to do so. This is just as deep as religion if not more so in my opinion. I am not forcing my beliefs on others so why the fuck are theirs being forced on me??

There are plenty of rapists in America, should we ban all penises? Seriously, I mean that in a no joking manor. Obesity is an on going issue in the USA, so because of that shouldn't there be a ban on all things unhealthy, say like fast food places, candy, sodas and so forth? Oh wait those things did not make people fat, well they did actually, but it was the persons choice to shovel that crap in their pie holes wasn't it? Guns do kill, but not without the action of the person welding it. I own a gun, I choose to go to a shooting range, or hunt or let that gun sit in a safe...I CHOOSE what the gun will be used for, same as I choose how I drive a vehicle. I could easily choose to use a car as a weapon...hell I could use a spoon as a weapon if I was in a mentally incapacitated frame of mind.

So what else should be banned? vehicles..that would prevent drunk drivers wouldn't it? Cutlery, cause lets face it there are plenty of stabbings going on as well. Mens genitals, those can cause great harm to many victims!! Womens genitalia, lets face it, some have the ability to bring men to their knees and become butter in the hands of the woman welding the golden vagina. Sounds very much ridiculous does it not? So doesn't blaming guns for the actions of the nut job welding it. I strongly support my rights to keep and bear arms, but I also support others rights to NOT wish to want to keep and bear arms. That was what America was founded on freedom of choice...I am not happy that people who are close or narrow minded are trying to take away my rights because they do not agree with them. Too fucking bad...this is OUR country not his or hers.....We ALL have rights whether we agree or not.

A bit about me

I'm young at heart with an old soul, I am whimsical and sarcastic all rolled into one. I am a mother of 2 young adults, an aunt of a horde of many, a sister, and daughter.
Light heart mostly, straight forward always and a touch of brass clarity. Critical constructive critisms rolls off my tongue very naturally. I'm a helper/healer by nature, even been called an empath.
I've lived many life times in this short time I've been here...not more then some but perhaps more so than others. Life is a gift in which I cherish daily, friends are an extension of that gift, family is the icing on top.
