Monday Rant

Saw something on the news this morning that made my head spin and jaw hit the floor.

"A NYC university will no longer allow cops on campus, even to use the bathroom."


"According to our research, a number of our students are afraid of the police, and having a police presence would make their 'safe place' feel less safe."

Are you freaking kidding me?

How safe are they going to feel when the CRIME RATE goes up?

Has NYC U lost it's mind?

On a side note, where did we go wrong with this generation?  We dare not offend anyone; apparently all millenials need safety blankies; we're raising a bunch of entitled WIMPS!

Everyone now wants to be a victim, to get their 15 minutes of fame.

When did the police go from being 'your friend' (you know, that GUY you call when your home has been violated, or any crime has taken place?) to 'the enemy' (that guy who *must* be shot before he shoots you)?

I don't even know whom to blame, or even cast a light on one particular incident.  Rodney King?  The incident in Kansas/Missouri/Iowa (yeah, yeah....I can't remember....)?  The kid in Florida?  #44, for his idiocy in enabling this racial divide, instead of helping to SOLVE it?  Thought he was supposed to bring about the end of the 'race war', instead, things got worse.

We have kids playing the victim card "because my great-great-great-great-grandpappy was enslaved by YOUR great-great-great-great-grandpappy.'

Instead of carrying over the 'hate', BREAK THE CYCLE!  Stop carrying around this false sense of entitlement you think the world owes you, because of said circumstances.  Pull yourself out of this 'feel-sorry-for-me' attitude and DO something CONSTRUCTIVE for a change.

Go to college.  Get a good job.  Hell, run for president/Congress and MAKE changes, instead of whining about it.

Talk talk talk about some ACTION to back it up?

Instead of people fighting to be RIGHT, how about people work TOGETHER to repair the damage we've done to ourselves?

And while I'm on this soapbox....when did everything the world does become the USA's problem?  Don't we already have enough on our hands?  Yes, babies in Yemen are dying.  Yes, the POS in NK needs to be spanked and sent to the dungeon his room.  Yes, there's an unsavory person in power in several countries.  But we have people living in our streets; we have families who have to choose between food/shelter and having medicine.  Remember the adage 'in order to help others, we must first begin with ourselves'?  No, this doesn't make us selfish; it keeps us HEALTHY!

Right now, we have a broken political system; a broken health care system; and someone trying to repair it, except he's fighting an uphill battle.

Apparently, we're just begging for an invasion.

Be careful what you wish for; you might get it.

*steps down and bows head to pray*

In other news, David Cassidy, one of my 1st beloved actors/singers, is in critical condition.  Sending lots of love and prayers to his family.

I had a Partridge Family lunchbox

I still have my Partridge Family Christmas Album.

I watched Partridge Family reruns every chance I got, during the summers I spent with my grandparents.

I was upset when he was rudely booted off Celebrity Apprentice, since he couldn't raise a lot of money for their fundraising task.  So his rolodex wasn't as loaded as the what?

Oops, I feel another rant coming, so time to end this before it gets out of hand.
