It seems if there is one thing to justify where the middle is it is in defining what are the extremes. With that being said, there seems to be still real conversation about what to do about some of the extremes that are being presented, take for instance a discussion regarding muslim radicalism, any religion that slips past it's moors is bound to be a discussion mass proportion. We being American treasure a sense of security and freedom, other outputs define freedom as unobtainable and requre extreme measures to produce actual examples of what is freedom in it's many unique and extreme applications. Think about that for a moment, I know I just did. Some of the extreme examples I can think of are freedom to drink alchol, do we really have a freedom to do so? Well yes and no, if we do we risk alcohol poisining. Do we have freedom to have many sexual partners? Well, again we do but what are the risks? std's, bad reps, continous life cycle. In being able to determine what being free truly aspires to be, and what freedom is and isn't, we need to come to a middle ground that dosen't divide us as much as helps us realize we need to make responsible choices and decisions in seeking out such a high definition term as freedom.
Another area that seems really unclear is how possible is it that many people according to the Mitt camp are so called middle class? If it is true that being middle class is a indication of making 200,000.00 dollars, well I guess I am not only poor, but I would think it's what someone from the Mitt camp might reject my fingers slightly on the edge of getting a car repair or choosing to get dental insurance or a medical credit card that will be accepted by a dentist who will perform the necessary procedures in a state of the art facility and still be humanistic according to my basis for being who I am. I am not a vision or an apparation of any higher being, I am a simple person who is having one heck of a time keeping my self sane when the media has gone so far off the track of democracy that it is making me dizzy.
I don't know how or why people would feed into what is happening in this country as it continues to lose it's sense of futility and fraility and strength. Americans are known for wanting perhaps not the best but what is good, we have shrunked our view and oversized our zest for the best. Instead as we clamour out of our beds to a daily juggle of what to do we neglect ourselves each and every day. It's just too bad, that is a take on what it is to propel ourselves out of bed, and do the morning dance. The short stint on t.v. news, try not to be dredged into the damn stuff that is going on and nobody is really questioning much, except it must go on. On to the electric pot of coffee, hoping that the morning cup of rocket fuel lives up to it's name. And hoping there isn't that ten o'clock crash, the one where if you work in a fancy smanchy place places croissants and bagels and a spread with veggies and fruits, yum.
Who are these people? what are their earnings? and how do they get to put out these lavish spreads? it all depends on what the company does. How conscious are you the worker who determines what doesn't or does happen to you? So getting back to the middle class, exactly what does one do to earn a gross amount of 200,000.00 dollars a year, that proably dosen't include the perks, ouch yes I am adding insult to injury. It dosen't make sense in my brain, how I can't even go out for a job with out feeling that if an employer offered me 17.00 dollars an hour, I'd prouably fall off of my chair. I am practically out of school, yes I am a fifty-one year old student, ha-ha but really I am. I will have loads of student debt to show for it, and I am not really sure if I am finished or if I will look to pursue a masters in something.
I know that when I hear the taunts about illegal immigration and realize the propensity of the situation the way it stands know, is that the only dream act is that my children and their children will have jobs. Because the way I see it, for the many reasons both good and bad that are created for coming to the states, it is going to be very hard to ignore the voices of the young people, the h.s. kids aka immigrants who practically beg to be believed that it is of ut most importance that they remain here. The libearl sense of entitlement would define the young voice as real and determined to make the country a better place. In doing so, can these young people go on to school, get jobs to help their people choose work in government then return to their country to truly help and truly make a difference?
On being gay, this is so extreme it's ridiculous why bother? When millions of people come out of the closet, and your most conservative friend has friends who openly support gay marraige, share in the best interest of government, are willing to fight in the army, and still not wish to be hetro-sexual then why should that be a forced issue? I don't get it? Most people by many accounts have known or have dealt with a gay person be a lesbian or gay male either through work, church, community or government. Even though amongst the most conservative or bias, which obviously still exits, it would be similar in my mind, to stoping people dead in their tracks for eating more than one egg a week due to causing high choloestrol. Why do we need to have continous debate on sujects that cause chlostrophobia?
Being so called American does not mean every debate has to be a debate to the death. So why bring up subjects that are so widely diverse and so plainly offensive? In this day and age of enlightment we should know better to feed into the hype, as to when the media simply has nothing better to offer.
