Hollywood Has Pushed “The Line” To The Gutter.

To the red headed comedian, (no need to mention your name as all you seem to want is recognition), the late night talk show host, the Liberal Media and Most of Hollywood, You Do Not Represent the Majority of Americans.  In spite of your loud voices and constant hypocritical rhetoric against anyone that thinks different from you and your intolerance for opposing views most Americans can respect each other and accept our differences.  We are a free nation with the ability to speak, act and pray as we want. We are also a nation of responsibility and consequences. If one chooses to act a certain way than they also need to accept reactions of others. Morally we should not hurt, degrade or dishonor anyone. We have laws against libel, slander and public discourse. Those in the public eye, whether politicians, athletes, celebrities etc. seem to be more susceptible to ridicule and critiques as long as a line is not crossed (sorry Jim Carrey, there is indeed a moral line) most move on without issue. There is no question that the Media and Hollywood have pushed the Moral/Ethical Line down to the gutter for the sole purpose of fame, fortune and power.  The laws protect you in spite of your disgusting shift towards foulmouthed, sexual, in your face, anti-family values. The majority of Americans, regardless of political and social views, have to battle each and every day the garbage you put out. Parents worry that their children will listen to a song, see a TV show or watch a movie that shows the opposite of what they are trying to teach them at home.  With social media it is almost impossible to shield all the garbage 24-7.  Those that are not parents are just as disgusted as they see society portrayed in a way that goes against what most believe in. You are free to do what you want but as you continue to push the line at some point you won’t be able to push anymore and you will hit a wall and fall. There will be no one to blame but yourself as everyone is responsible for their own actions.

Life Lessons Beyond the News, Politics and other Noise.

life-lessons

As I recently hit the ½ century mark I thought it was a good time to share some basic reminders that have been beneficial to me to get through this thing called life.  We can only control ourselves and how we act and react. Life is what we make of it regardless of those around us.

50 years of life lessons… here are some of my favorites:

  1. Don’t sweat the small stuff (Life is full of challenges, focus on what is truly important)
  2. Smile and say Thank You (you might just brighten someone’s day)
  3. Be humble and laugh at yourself when you can (We all make mistakes and do silly things)
  4. Remember that each of us are important and can make a positive impact on others
  5. Find time to pray and be thankful for the opportunity of Life that GOD has given us
  6. Never stop learning and trying to better yourself
  7. Enjoy the blessings along the way (time goes by fast with no guarantees)
  8. It is OK to ask for help when you need it, in turn help others when you can
  9. Today’s technology can make a 50-year-old feel really stupid but we “middle-agers” can still offer a lot to the next generation
  10. Never forget to tell those that are important to you that “They are important to you”
