Alright it’s early Saturday morning, I have a half of cup of coffee in me, the house is quiet, my stomach is growling and I’m mad as hell!
I CAN’T STAND watching the news listening to everything that is wrong in the world. Constant Negative News makes billions of dollars telling us the economy stinks, a hurricane is coming, highlighting the murder of the week, telling us about the crooked politician of the week, what new deadly disease there is and the sky is falling.
I don’t put the news on in my home or car radio yet it blares in so many places I visit each day. As I start my day and I stop for a morning cup of coffee–the news in on.
Go to breakfast, lunch, dinner darn near every restaurant has on the news.
Stop for an evening drink– the news is on.
I guess I question why?
We hear tragedy and negative news sells.
Again, I ask why?
Why we (not me!) are wired this way?
I see news that looks like one massive garbage dump that’s a stack of “you know what” that gets higher and higher day by day.
Like a pile of “you know what” it stinks more and more day by day. I feel I need a ‘poop” blower to replace my snow blower here in Michigan!
I have flashbacks to Chicken Little shouting the SKY IS FALLING THE SKY IS FALLING!
If you listen to politicians the “you know what” flows freely from their mouths as they insult our intelligence.
Can you tell I’ve had it?
How about you?
There is no positive “spin’ despite what DC and the media feed us.
This isn’t the two little boys at Christmas story many of you know. You know, the story of the two twin little boys who were so bad (how bad?) that Mom & Dad had a super load of horse poop delivered as their only Christmas gift (coal in my stocking never sounded so good!) On Christmas morning they took the boys to the barn to show them their gift. Disappointed, one of the boys cried and cried and ran back to the house. The other boy dove into the poop as an Olympic high board diver could only do! Mom and Dad were shocked at the swan dive they were witnessing! The asked their son what the heck he was doing? Calmly, optimistic little Billy replied “with all that poop, there must be a pony in here somewhere ‘!
That’s not us!! That is not the news we hear. Get over it-no pony, just stink!
Isn’t it time to turn this around?
If not, when will this end?
I’d love to start “‘PNN” the Positive News Network. I’m just several million short of financing this.
If anyone with deep pockets out there and wants to write a check, I’ll start on building this new station tomorrow!
I long for the old fashion Northern Michigan news that featured the family of ducks that slowed traffic, the record zucchini that Mrs. Smith grew and how Darla just gave her first piano concert.
What we, Your State, our country (God Bless the USA!) focuses on expands!
If you focus on garbage and poop, you get garbage and poop!
I’m tired of wading through Hefty bags each day and carrying a poop shovel.
Let’s start focusing on what is right with our families, our towns, our State our county, our world.
Enough is enough.
We have to do it collectively. It will be work.
Start now. Start today!
Will you join me?
Start with your house, then your extended family, you neighborhood, your town.
Get the word out.
Talk to people, write articles, make some phone calls, heck, copy this and pass it on to whomever needs an attitude change.
Enough is enough!
Let’s spread a positive word, a positive attitude vs. the “you know what”!
Watch this video and see what we need on the news each and every day!
To put the world right in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must first cultivate our personal life; we must first set our hearts right. Confucius
