Crying the Words Don't Make it Right

Boy standing on a cliff crying wolf

So I am about fed up with people incorrectly or improperly using certain words. They cry out loud and shout these words from the rooftop trying to invoke something in people. For the sake of furthering agendas, people are using words that have great meaning and significance with no regard for the consequences, and slowly but surely these words lose their meaning. Words that should have great impact when used are thrown out like worthless everyday jargon. Here are the definitions of a few that have been frequently on the lips of the unintelligent and unenlightened rulers of our collective consciousness and society.
As defined by Websters:

Definition of socialism

1 : any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods
2a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property
b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state
3 : a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done

     While some elements of our country are similar to socialism, the United States is not a socialist country. Please study geography and history and look at actual socialist countries and you will notice some real differences. Many of the people who are shouting this right now would be in prison or dead if this was a socialist country. Just because someone doesn't subscribe to your ideology doesn't mean you can just put them in the category of socialist. Its time to admit that people are doing this to paint the opposition as the bad guys trying to bring the evils of socialism to our country. The truth is the very people who are calling for less government have also benefited greatly from the amount of government we have. Some poor people are getting benefits they shouldn't at taxpayers expense, but on the flip side some corporations and very rich people also get subsidies and breaks they maybe shouldn't. Also, there is a minority of people who actually believe we should become socialist. I would ask them to look at how successful this form of government has been.
*Hint, it hasn't been in my opinion*

Definition of racism

1 : a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race
2a : a doctrine or political program based on the assumption of racism and designed to execute its principles
b : a political or social system founded on racism
3 : racial prejudice or discrimination

     Everything that happens to people is not about your race and its time for people to stop jumping to this as the first thing in every case that happens. This takes away from times when it really does happen. Many people need to examine themselves and see if they have tendencies in how they treat people that would qualify as what they are accusing others of being. You go around saying all these people are this way and then get mad when they say your people are all that way. While the level of power or control in this society makes a difference on the effects your attitude can have compared to the other group, the truth is anyone can be racist or guilty of racism. Something that is wrong is wrong no matter the race of the perpetrators or the victims. Its time to step back and look at things with an objective eye and establish facts before deciding things just based on race from the beginning.

Definition of coup d'état

: a sudden decisive exercise of force in politics especially : the violent overthrow or alteration of an existing government by a small group

     So I have heard people talk about one side of our government trying to have a coup, by which they mean coup d' etat, and remove the president. What people are doing with this word, just as they have with others I have mentioned, is take something to the extreme for attention. They believe, maybe even correctly in some instances, that people will not listen or pay attention to what their saying unless they use words that trigger them. Once again please study history and geopolitics to look at what a real coup looks like and you will see we have nothing remotely like that happening in this country.

At some point, people in this country are going to have to educate themselves and lift their mental and spiritual selves to another level. A level where they will stop letting emotions rule their thinking and control what comes out of their mouths. A level where we use our heads to think before we speak and act. Future generations will actually believe that the misuse of these words is the actual meaning. Just as today people will rally because these words have made them falsely believe they are fighting against or for something they are not. 
     At various times in our history there have been calls for more government involvement in our lives, but at no time have we had anything but a democracy. The very fact that we can debate different political ideologies, the fact that you can buy and sell your house and land, and that we have private companies not at all run by the government proves this fact.
     Racism does happen but not to the overt extent that it happened in our recent past. However it does happen and you can't tune it out like its not at all possible in this day and time, like I said 'recent past'.  
     Any talk of a coup in this country because one party wants to take power away from another party is nonsense. Our two party system hasn't resorted to violent overthrow yet. The only thing you might call a coup is the American Revolution, because we did violently overthrow the British, but that's maybe even a stretch. 
     I implore people to not use these words so haphazardly. There are people out there who hear these words and react with extreme behaviors such as rioting and even murdering people. Stop the foolishness before we end up killing each other and losing this great country!

VISION 11/4/2020

Behold, I woke on Wednesday morning November 4, 2020. I was happy to be blessed by the Most High with another day. I headed out into the world and there was great sorrow for some and great joy for others. I had great joy because I knew how much grace had been shown to me by the Savior, and I thought maybe the others who were happy shared this same feeling and the ones who were sad were that way because they don't know the Savior. I found out that all of their feelings were based off the election of a new king, and nothing to do with blessings that they had received from their Heavenly Father.      I continued on until I came to a sight that amazed me. Their was a crowd of people that wanted to fight each other. They were evenly divided and some had various weapons and wore the armor of their chosen side. There was red and blue and letters and symbols like 'Q' and 'BLM'. None of them said anything that sounded like it came from the Holy Word, they quoted only from th

FAILURE (Personal)

Throughout my life I have had failures. Anyone that saw me try to play basketball, run track, and wrestle in high school can attest that my athletic career was a failure. I took test in school that I should have got an 'A' on if I had studied and applied myself, and the times I didn't prepare and didn't get an 'A' I consider it a failure. Even more so in the academic realm, I never finished my bachelor's degree in Engineering. Just years worth of credits sitting in limbo to remind me of my failure to finish when many people made sacrifices so I could achieve a higher education. As many know I have never been married and have no children, which I also consider to be a failure on my part. Most importantly, in my walk I have committed sins knowing that it separates my from my savior. Doing it in full knowledge of what Jesus did for me. I have been a failure at living the life that he wants me to live. I say these things to let you know that I understand failure

The Great Divide I

  I actually started on this post back in October 2020. It was all over the place, but I just recently looked at it and got it more focused.       So something has been on my heart for a while, and I have finally decided to write down a few words that will hopefully explain some things about my actions. First off let me state unequivocally that I believe in Matthew 5:43-45 (Love your enemies) and Matthew 22:37-40 (Love your neighbors). So if anyone ever needs help, be they stranger, family, friend, or even enemy, you have but to ask.       With that out of the way let me get to what this is about. I wrote a post called Fence Jumping a while back.   Check it out if you get a chance. I tried back then to let people know some things that are going on. Tried to explain why I'm choosing not to be as social of a person these days. I get the sense however that either people don't care or I haven't withdrawn myself enough f
