RIGHT NOW, WE STILL HAVE FREEDOM

RIGHT NOW, WE STILL HAVE FREEDOM

When someone tries to make something better, not everyone appreciates someone's hard work and their accomplishments...

Imagine working so hard for something where you actually bleed, sweat, and cry...

Imagine people constantly ridiculing you before you even began...

Imagine people laughing at you because, you dared to dream a dream...

You're put in a position you didn't really want, you only wanted to see if you could get it...

You did...

Now, people want you out...

Do you give in?

Do you leave?

​​​​​​Do they win or do you?

People really don't appreciate good things...

Must be all negative accomplishments, otherwise good accomplishments,  most probably would be asked to stay...

Right now, we still have freedom...

Hugs...

Yes, right now we still have freedom, but not for long, I've heard a lot of talk about the technology that is filtering it's its way into our very job sites, Bluetooth monitoring, technology in lights that can detect our exact position all the time, we are heading for a 1984 dystopia, a Communist style era, I'm not sure what trump is up to but asking Ukraine to investigate Bidan is not a well thought out plan but who really knows what goes on behind the white house walls.

Hello Gerard...

I don't know if you're aware but, I did a write about A.I. quite awhile back...

As far as Trump and his conversations, he's not the only one no matter who he speaks with...

He's just the one currently on Stage...

I'm sure most of us are aware of Congress' and other Politicians future Agenda by now...

It's up to us where and what we want for us as an individual and as a Country...

Do we starve or thrive?

Thank you for your kind comment and support!

Hi Sis...I get really confused with what I can believe that is reported in the news...I hate politics and political agendas...I know our country is run by the rich elitists...but I do not know how much of what they do is purposeful deceit and how much is just their selfish motivations out of greed and accidentally making bad choices that affect us all from their lack of compassion....Everyone does just remember the negative accomplishments and do not look for the good....I still see good in our country and rely on prayers and faith that God is still in control.  Great write.  Love n Hugs, xo

Hello Sis Cherie...

There have been times when I've said Jesus please take the wheel...

Sometimes, I think God says Jesus please take the  wheel...

Hello Tony...

​​​​​​We know about Some of the future technology...

We know the plan to replace us...

But, the choice is ours...

Do we rush to the change or do keep it we're they have to fight harder?

It's a downhill slope and it speeds up faster as it goes...

They just need riders to make it work...

Thank you for your kind comment and support!

Hi Sparrow! 
How are you? It's so good to see you. 
What a smart, poignant write, as always. 
Wouldn't you hate to be President these days??!! It used to be the pinnacle of the free world, and now it must just be awful. All the scrutiny in every area, no cooperation what so ever from the other party, simply because they're the other party and nothing to do with ideas, or progress. The constant belittling and making fun of by the biased news stations, and late night 'must be perfect' hosts. It's just crazy. This world has gone horribly wrong. I hate it. 

But nice write, and great to see you! 

Matthew.

Hello Matthew...

Great to see you too and on my Birthday!

😀

No other President has been treated this way...

I think most of the Patriotic people died...

People who fought and died to give us Rights, Privileges and with it responsibility that now, many won't  participate, not for the Good anyway...

One good thing when people don't vote, it's much quieter because, they can't complain...

If they try, well it definitely will fall on deaf ears...

People who do and they want to see it fall well, they must like the taste of Crow...

If I was President and treated the way he is I would have called Martial Law and tell everyone kiss my ass...,

All these late night insulted who can't seem to come up with new and original stuff...

Talking the same jokes for years there going to look funny when he's there anymore and then they'll have to find someone else to insult or come up with different material...

The only thing they've proven and shown is their own mentality level...

Thank you for your sweet comment and support!

Hey Sparrow! 
Thank you, and Happy Birthday!! What a nice day! A very special day for us. 
You're so right about all you say, it's such a ridiculous situation. I mean, even if someone doesn't like the President(whoever it is), don't you think they should have respect for them? I mean, it's the top office of our land, and the world would be a much nicer place if people would show respect to each other. Do they think they could actually get to that job, or do a better job with all of the outside harrassment, etc. It's crazy days we live in. 

Thanks for being born today, and being awesome! 

Matthew.

Hello Marion...

😊

​​​​​​That's me when it comes to people...

I mean things are pretty good for people right now, making more money than they have in a long time, people getting off Food Stamps not getting on them...

All the hate and insults are very odd...

People seem to have something against people doing good...

Thank you for your kind comment and support!
