The people in our universe are really showing their stupidity and we have become a parody of ourselves. From politicians to local public emergency service employees. Just this week two different so called Republican politicians have opened their mouths and inserted their foots by making a mockery of rape victims and by saying that breast milk can “cure a homosexual”. Really people? Now you just making things up. I’d link the stories but they are just too stupid to be for real.
Also in the last month one local sheriffs deputy was arrested for taking cellphone pictures of a young female minor. Then just a day ago a local EMT and Volunteer Firefighter Chief was arrested for stealing money while on a call to the home of a recently deceased. Yes that’s right stole money out of the purse of a dead woman…
What happen to our society?
When did our society get so stupid?
How in the world did we let it get so bad?
I’m almost 40 I’m the daughter of baby boomers. I was taught that stealing is always wrong, that unless you have true quantifiable evidence don’t spread crap around. I was taught by my grandmother, part of the greatest generation, that if you have a job to do, do it right and well the first time. Doing just enough to get by is not an acceptable work ethic. A hard truth is always and forever better than a sweetened lie. Tip your servers according to their level of service. It’s okay to fire your doctor or dentist if they don’t listen to you. It’s also okay to walk away when a job, person or situation puts your moral character at risk. Most importantly never do anything to embarrass yourself, your family or the company/organisation you are with. Now I pepper that last statement that we all do stupid things and there are just some things we can’t avoid. When those happen you be as graceful as you can be and apologize for any harm you have done.
Is it too much to ask for a bit of civility? For some manners and kindness?
