Politicians, Catch Up. People, React.

Web

Yes, we know. For decades you had the ability to make decisions without the media so far up your ass, they knew you had colon cancer before you got the results. For decades it was your word against someone else’s and of course someone America chose to represent would never lie to achieve what they want.

For decades, the ability to keep to yourself when it came to making decisions was standard and the majority of us didn’t care enough to do in-depth research on the politicians who affect our future. A few were silly enough to make the front page, but I guarantee many politicians would need to secure a designated driver when entering a game of ‘I Never’ with middle class citizens.

But not anymore.

We’ve finally placed society in a position that puts many politicians in a unfamiliar light and we all should pat ourselves on the back.

So why aren’t we?

Ah I know. While the media continues to easily shove inaccurate, one-sided stories with relevant facts buried in the sensation, we continue to believe that because it speaks to what we trust, it must be accurate, and if not, we’ll figure out a way to right the mistake by twisting the truth to correlate. Because our side can’t be wrong. Our side must succeed no matter how silly the response was.

It’s so apparent, politicians are blatantly spitting in our face every chance they get and we won’t react because reacting may hurt our side’s chance of winning (winning what, I’m not sure yet. We’re all losers right now). If that’s not bad enough, some of the politicians have the media outright backing them in their pursuit to power and feel that it would have no affect on their ethics as journalists (think about that the next time you share an article or video).

Here’s a quick example.

Chris Christie admitted that if he were elected president, he would strike down on states who have legalized marijuana. He doesn’t believe it should be legalized (but felt compelled to push sports gambling and maintaining Atlantic City gambling casinos, enabling an addiction many people can do a six degrees of separation from). He openly admits that back-tracking would be one of his priorities.

We’ve seen the financial success that the legalization of marijuana has done for the recent legalized states. We’ve seen statistics that say New Jersey has one of the highest move out rates. We see the tax revenue it brings in the recent legalized states, so much so that money is needed to be given back. We’ve seen endless money spent on prisons in New Jersey, while people still get high anyway. Violent crime has decreased since the legalization of pot in Colorado. A drunk cop from New Jersey crashes and kills people.

Not to mention the new studies coming out contradicting everything we were told to believe.

How he thought he had any right to speak of it is beyond me. But that’s not the point.

Now, the response from the people were genuinely hilarious as most couldn’t believe that Christi thought he would be elected as he has his state citizens running for a new beginning. But the fact that a politician thought so highly of himself and so low of the people should tell us something.

We are not really paying attention. Haven’t been for years. We believe exactly what we are told by the people who have chosen their salary over the truth. Not their truth. THE TRUTH. Great example of the trickle-down affect. Are we liking the results? We see it, but our reaction is not enough to thwart the actions of the people who were elected to speak for us. Some have tried to react. Those not powerful enough have to hide. Some of us don’t know how to do something. Some think they can’t. Some just don’t care. Which category are you?

When Did It Become Ordinary For Unnecessary People To Be Famous?

Print

ALL THESE RECENT SCANDALS SHOULD BE ENOUGH TO STOP THIS TREND! 

I know there are enough channels and outlets to suffice, but why are we tolerating so much nonsense to enter our minds and ignoring scenarios that reflect our current situation? Yeah, go ahead and say it’s for our entertainment. Our ‘guilty pleasure.’ It’s almost believable. I wouldn’t have given it a second thought had I not seen a trend in the last decade of people striving to be some type of star by some irrelevant means. Spending countless hours trying to become someone with an exploitation background.

Let’s be clear so no groups rally against me. My taste does not clear the spectrum of entertainment and I may not understand why people are glued to certain shows, but I understand that my taste doesn’t dissolve any chance of my dislikes’ respect and admiration. While I’ll defend my dislikes about any particular show, webisode, podcast, movie, or song, defending someone’s desire to be famous by any means necessary is ridiculous.

So I ask again: When Did It Become Ordinary For Unnecessary People Be Famous?

When did we lose sight of those who are helping to promote our world? To progress our species? I am seeing multiple epidemics around the world. Nothing as major relative to the dark ages yes. But serious ones nonetheless. I’d name some, but I’m sure your news feed beat your eyes with it all day, everyday.  All areas of importance are receiving blow after blow on multiple sides in multiple opinions with negative results overriding any hopes of moving forward from this sidestep we’ve come accustom too. Yet cameras all around some famous person’s baby? Articles trying to explain a one-year-old’s expression. People making millions just because. That’s where we are right now. necessary people

Let me put this in perspective: In order for me to start a nonprofit organization for…let’s say sheltering homeless people. Or an animal shelter for you pet lovers. After obtaining sufficient amount of education and experience, on top of the dedication necessary to move forward in my mission, I would need sponsors to help pay for it. Remember, nothing is for free. A proposal must be written pretty much begging people to help with the mission. Begging to help a situation that most people should hold dear to them. Of course, rejections would be received as the begging progresses because a variety of reasons: Not interested, not worth it, no money, etc. The journey will go on. Finally, once the funds are in, then begins the endless effort to make the mission a reality. Trust me, it won’t be easy. Especially since the begging is continuous. Always preparing for sudden changes such as budget cuts. And this journey is not-for-profit, in case it was forgotten.

Suffice it to say, the organization’s success will not be overnight and the journey will be uphill with a lot of stumbling backwards. We also can safely say that those who have a stake in having homeless people on the street will have an effect on the success of the mission. Oh yeah, they’re out there.

So I’ll ask another question: Why Are Unnecessary People Famous?

And making money based on being irrelevant?

Can someone explain why we are paying more attention and money to those whose unnecessary experience in life for some reason made headlines while those who spend their life putting the entire world ahead of themselves, barely getting shares on social media? How is it possible for someone whose biggest accomplishment was having shitty company can draw more attention than…ANYTHING RELEVANT? It’s sickening to know that although we do not want to deal with our current situation, we are not responsible enough to ignore the obvious distraction created and focus on what needs to be done.

Step 1: Stop making unnecessary people relevant.

We The People Need to Reread The Constitution

wethepeople2

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common Defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to Ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

Those words were taken directly from the intro of the original Constitution and became the abstract leading to The Bill of Rights. They had the best intentions, and their actions made sense. But can we honestly say that the way this country is behaving correlates with what citizens hold so close?

We are not unionized if you take a look at the trends over the years. Some group has a problem with something, therefore splitting the country further and further away from what our forefathers wanted. This leads us to lack of domestic tranquility.

Which is causing us to become a divided set of people. We’ve gone beyond disagreement. Citizens of the United States are leaving our country and joining sides against us. (Sound familiar)? Whether you understand why or think these people are backstabbing, blasphemous humans, the fact that they were willing to defect shows you the there is an extreme dilemma in our unity and we are anything but tranquil.

I have to say, this country spends plenty of money proving that they will defend this territory (not people) to the end.

Our predecessors have failed us. I can’t believe that us, as the next generation cannot come together and say that out loud. They were greedy, they twisted everything around to make us believe that the general population will benefit. They paid off people to tell us the news they wanted us to hear and because of that, we now live in fantasies fighting against each other and what is right. We are not flourishing. We are dying at the hands of ourselves and those who are promised to protect us. And then fell “The Constitution” and it’s Amendments following.

Everyone boasts about the Constitution, quoting amendments with many not understanding that a re-look at the Constitution brought about The Bill of Rights. Nevertheless, we’re quoting them like it will make the situation better. The first sentence tells you that our current situation does not follow the Constitution. It’s already been violated but we ignore that fact and continue to move on.

bill of rights

It’s covered with our failures, but we allow our leaders to guide us with that fact proudly. We sit here in 2015 and act like we are succeeding with our beliefs and our current morals and decisions. But to what end? When will we finally cock our heads to the side and say…’huh?’

I’ll end this by saying in the last 250 years, we’ve turned an unimaginable amount of fantasies into last year’s top product. We continue to explore, invent, and discover things that we never imagined could be. We’ve learned we have been wrong about so many things. I am baffled at why people hold close this Constitution assuming men centuries ago knew how this world would be. Look up the word AMENDMENT!! Why is change so hard for us?

And why oh why do people think the second amendment will protect them from the government if and when they feel the need to take over? I’m pretty sure, our lives are in the hands of an agent who plays video games on his free time, sitting at a desk staring at us while we’re on the couch watching whatever makes us relax and…

Stop scraping the surface and try to go back to the beginning…and realize it was 250 years ago and adjust to the present.
