I admit to coming on strong and I am rough around the edges. I dont mince words and I speak my mind. I let few people inside my inner circle. You wanna know why? Think about this:
"Not everyone is welcome in my house. If I let everyone in then there wouldn't be anyone special".
There's a lesson in that. It makes it very plain who, what, when, where and how to catagorize or size up people you come in contact with. Oh yeah theres such a thing as being polite but who are you foolin? Who is benefiting from that? The way I see it, if more people were honest and up front with their feelings; mean what they say and say what they mean, we wouldnt have relationship problems with each other, other cultures and society in general.
Can anyone tell me WHY do we HAVE to be politically CORRECT? I liked Bill Maher. He said it like it was. Too many mamby-pamby whinning sniveling idiots out there that need to know how to live by your "word" and your "deeds" instead of taking a cowards way out to "apease the masses". Oh! don't even get me started on our involvement in the war in Iraq! Too many people wanted us to go in there with "guns ablazing" after 911. And when we didn't, what did they do? turn Bush into the sole cause for the war in the first place. Amazing...
In my book, respect is earned. That comes with showing me that you are an individual and you have a mind. Speak it. Show me what values you have. But most of all LIVE by what you believe in and never, EVER back down.
Let the special people in, keep the others out.
