Destiny by Frank Outlaw

Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

Correctness!?

Political correctness and why I hate it!

 

Got your attention! Well, I hope so because I think that political correctness is just another form of hypocrisy and lies. Political correctness gives people the ability to hide their true feelings and therefore, if you are not really keen, giving them the ability of stabbing someone in the back. I remember when I was hired at Best Buy, the manager at the time, Jewish, told me that he did not like black people but wanted to hire me. I thanked him and we had no issues with each other because I knew where he stood and where I stood. I am a hard worker and I do my job and there was nothing to nit pick there. I carried myself professionally, because that is who I am, and there was nothing to nit pick there either. That manager grew to like me and we were good. He still had his prejudices but him and I were on equal footing. I never feared him and never disrespected him. Eventually he was moved or promoted, until that time we were good with each other. Political correctness promotes lies and I hate that. I rather know that you are a racist, homophobic, bigot and just a hateful person so that I know who I am dealing with and get to choose if I want to keep dealing with you or not and it also lets me know where you stand.

 

I have known people who have prejudices against people of color and I had no problem having dealings with them because I knew where they stood and they knew where I stood. Of course some of those dealings ended up with me being made the bad guy but that does not stop me from dealing with people, regardless of their hang-ups. What those experiences have taught me is that there are people that you can only trust or deal with to a certain extent and no more and others you can depend on, to a certain extent and no more. Like that I am able to befriend and/or associate with many different people with no problems.

 

In all, I choose to not take things personally, unless being directed towards me with an evil intent and/or that person wants to cause me harm, then I deal with them accordingly. I love truth. Give me truth and I will be ok. Does it hurt sometimes? Yes and I rather that because I end up liberated versus walking, living, and working around distrust, lies and deceits.

Constitution 101

It seems that today, authorities use these additional powers given them to harass kids, regular folks, and start censoring and moving toward more of an authoritarian state because of such broad powers. The kid did nothing wrong, and I doubt their was any obstruction of justice or whatever they wrote down in order to try and prosecute the child. If we do not stand for something we will fall for anything. This wrong and they know it and so do we. They need to release the kid, apologize and the prosecutor and the police officer need to be fired. Is this the “moderate encroachment” that our President says he is OK with. Look, I may love the guy, speaking of the President, but I do not agree with what he has now fully ushered in through his incessant defense of a wrong doing. Now, local law enforcement and officials seem to be following suit too. All in the name of “security” I bet.
