Tuesday Torments

A few things that irked me today...

~I was watching this documentary on immigration that a group of students in Silver Spring called the Gandhi Brigade produced. On there is this man stating that he doesn't want anyone coming to North America because he does not want their cultures mixing with the "one" here. So the interviewer asks him about his ancestors to which he replies They were from France. The interviewer then asks well since you don't believe in immigration, your family shouldn't be here either. This ignoramus replies that people with European background made this country sophisticated...and other such nonsense along those lines. I find a few issues with this: First, if you don't believe in immigration no one including your ancestors would be here. Secondly, America is a land of different cultures, some brought here against their will, so to say you don't want different cultures here...maybe you haven't looked outside your window. Finally, how ignorant and closed minded are you??? I hate to say this, but I am glad he was an older gentleman (I use that term loosely) and hopefully you haven't passed your judgemental views down to your kids, grandchildren, etc.

~~I'm trying to stay neutral, but the Olympic games being held in China while civil unrest is occuring in Tibet, not the wisest decision I'm sure. Pres. Bush stating that the Olympics is about games and not politics is, well, pretty much how he has ran the country for the past 7 1/3 years. Surprisingly his lack of regard for the Tibetan people does not shock me, but the fact that other countries are continuing to support the Beijing Olympic games does. This is just the torch carrying and it has been met with so much protesting that I can only imagine how this is going to progress. Guess we will all have to wait and see...

~~~My grown your bills!! Not taking responsibility of the debts that you owe, whether it is a credit card, the phone bill or the Washington Post delivery man, is simply unacceptable. Funny how when it's time for bills to be paid people cry broke, but you somehow miraculously have money to go out and party like no tomorrow. The Bible states clearly in 1 Corinthians 13:11 When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; When I became a man, I did away with childish things. Not taking care of responsibilities is a childish matter. I don't care how late, how old, how you "didn't get a bill", you know you owe, stop with the games. Bills don't go away they just gain interest and fees while causing you more headaches and heartaches. Set up a payment plan, send in $20 a month, a pay check or what have you just get it done. I can't believe I even had to go there with this. Get it in line.
