My Capitalistic View Point :o)

I thought about all the turmoil in the world today and how it sometimes feels like it's the "worse" time to be alive. It's a lot like the thoughts teens have when they say "my life is worse than anyone else's"... or when a woman say "she's so much prettier than I'll ever be".

Note: I don't think this is the worse time to be alive... just the most interesting. :O)

There are hard times for different people and different countries all through history. So I wonder... is our time the hardest? We have running water, electricity, electronic entertainment coming out our ears, autos, planes, plentiful food. What's so hard about now?

Perhaps it's two fold:

1) we want so much to be important in life... to be "somebody" that when we fall short of where we thought we would be, we feel sorry for our self and think "whoa is me".

2) Technology will be our downfall. Okay... so that may seem dramatic, but it may come true some day. We have the ability to do so much good, but instead we sit back and watch as terrorists destroy freedoms across the globe. How do I think technology will be the end-all? Because technology is not only for the "good-guys"... it's equally available to the "bad-guys". So in actuality... it's not technology... it's the people using it.

So I'm pondering tonight... what can I do to make myself important so I don't become the ultimate whiner and how can we destroy those who wish to destroy our freedom. For me, I need to participate in our capitalistic society and become an entrepreneur. As for the nation... I suggest the same thing my boyfriend suggests... carpet bombing!

i say let's find our fortunes and run away with our men somewhere exotic and exciting. okay, so i'm feeling simplistic today. lol

May we each take the moment necessary out of this day and any day we feel the need to remember those who have gone before us in defense of our freedoms. Without them... we would not be "here"... we would be in chains. ~Bug~
