Things are strange…
Black Lives Matter.
I used to think I was pretty much just a regular person,
but I was born white, into a two-parent household which now,
whether I like it or not, makes me “Privileged”, a
racist & responsible for slavery.
The yabut, I have a mostly Irish and some Indian heritage. I've seen
the old signs that were still on buildings in NYC in the '70s saying
Irish and Negros need not apply. I guess some are more privileged
than others. Or the term privilege has acquired new meanings.
Irish Lives matter...
I am a fiscal & moral conservative, which by today’s standards,
makes me a fascist because I plan and budget to support myself.
I'm also a New England Yankee, making me legendary for being
Woman's lives matter...
I went to High School and college, an education and have always
tried to hold a job. But I now find out that I am not here
because I earned it, but because I was “advantaged” and not
because I knew technology and could apply it.
I am not straight, which according to straight folks, makes
me a queer and worthy of abuse.
Queer Lives Matter
I am almost 70, making me now a useless eater who does understand
Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat and computer design and operation.
Old Lives Matter...
I think and reason, and I doubt or research much of what the
“mainstream” media tells me, which makes me a skeptic.
I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which makes me a de facto
member of the “vast NRA gun lobby”. But I'm not.
Our Lives Matter...
I am proud of my heritage & our inclusive American culture, making
me a xenophobe. No just a citizen of the great experiment called
Citizens Lives Matter
I believe in the defense & protection of America for & by all citizens,
now making me a militarist.
I am proud of our flag, what it stands for and the many who died to
let it fly, so I stand & salute during our National Anthem –
so I must be a racist.
I believe in hard work, fair play, fair pay in accordance
to each individual’s merits. Being big on the proceeds of my
efforts makes me a thieving capitalist.
Work Lives matter.
I believe our system guarantees freedom of effort – I expect for
my taxes those services they pay for, which must make me a
Peoples Lives Matter!
If all this inane noise wasn’t enough to deal with, now there are those that
claim to not know which restroom to use? That means your stupid.
Trans Lives Matter...
I have come to terms with the new me and I’m sure who I am. I just
haven't a clue who making up all the terms for what I am not.
Why because every person matters, not any one race, ethnic,
Keep your powder hidden, keep it dry, and your head down.
