Red vs Blue

I look at the Presidential race and I see friends turning against one another.  People are really losing their closest friends over two people they do not even know.  This is no attack on President Obama or Governor Romney.  It just shows how bad we are brainwashed.  I look on facebook and twitter and people are cursing each other out over whom another person may vote for.  First off I do not believe that you should disclose your political choice over facebook that’s just me.  I cannot believe the stupidity that I read.  Democrats vs. Republicans are the original Bloods vs. Crips.  People are threatening to take people’s lives.  Stop it!

The real issue is that the president cannot get us there alone! We have to hold ourselves accountable at some point.   I personally do not care who you vote for, it is your right so exercise it.  What I have a problem with is everyone is looking at the President as God.  We feel that everything starts and stops with him.  I am sorry that is not how the political process works.  Not only do we need to hold the President accountable, but Senators, Congressmen, Governors, all the way down to your councilman.

The Presidential Debates should be an interview process for both Candidates.   These are the two people competing to run the free world.  I am sorry I am not judging them based on the fact that one does not care if gay people get married or the fact that the other says in God We Trust after ever line.  We saw where that got us with Bush.  We have 48.6 million Americans that do not have healthcare, we still have troop in Afghanistan, we need more jobs, and I could go on and on.  The President along, cannot fix these issues.   We select these people, and they can only do as much as we let them do.  Once we get past the popularity contest I think that most Americans want the same things.  Hold them accountable! Stick to the issues. 

Love your president!  Follow him but we have to take our world back and stop letting people that we vote into office dictate our lives, they can be replaced.   Keep the peace join hands because you are friends, neighbors, classmates……….  (Singing we are the World)

Being in A Relationship vs. Friends

This will be a three part post!  So women before you get upset everyone will get it on this topic!

Everyone wants companionship of some kind.  Are we entering in a day and age that men and women prefer not to be in a relationship?  Well as a man there are different reasons why we prefer not to be in a relationship.  Everyone think it is because there are so many more women than men or guys don’t want commitment.  Yeah those are reasons but let’s be clear as we age and mature we don’t want everything that is walking, we want quality over quantity.  Men also want to commit to the right one.

The main three reasons that men want to be Your Friend vs. Your Man, this might be a shocker, but we do not want the headache, we do not want to change our lifestyle, and we don’t want to work that hard (I know you thinking, what he is talking about).

Let me explain, first after we get past the lovie dovie stage women tend to change and you have something we like to call “Expectations.”  You have something in your mind that says, “Hey we have been dating for 6 months, it time for a change. “  We don’t like change!  Now you are starting to get on our nerves because you are complaining about every little thing.  Except something!  What you see as speaking your mind is sometimes a headache! So keep it to yourself.

Second, we do not want to change our lifestyle.  It is not cheap out here dating anymore.  Man, we have to budget just to go on dates.  It is ridiculous.  Man you cannot go on a date and get lobster when you know that if you were paying you would get the chicken.  That is the fastest way not to get a second date.  Which then we go back to the situation of why am I going to take you out when I can just come over and chill?  So basically we are doing other things besides getting to know each other on a better level.  Let’s go sit down at a Chick-Fil-A and eat for less than $15.  Oh you to good?  That is why you are single.

Third, this is nothing against women (sigh), but when I say we don’t want to work to hard I mean when we know that others did not have to work hard how you expect us to break our back to be in a relationship with you?  You accepted that role from another guy we want to be that guy as well.  You should take it easy on those demands.  It is a pride thing.  You are not about to give me a headache when the last guy got all the fun times.  Now you want me to jump through hopes because I want the commitment?  Right!

I Hope I Kept it GC,
