What is this strange epidemic when people of a CERTAIN generation don't have "drive".
They have an adrenaline based excitement for playing games.
They can waste their education, their youth and their future on things that achieve NO accomplishments in life, yet still be defensive about how their "hobby" enhances their life value.
This "drive" for non-quality hobbies, however, runs over into other generations, sometimes turning into an addiction, keeping people away from things that matter most.
As time goes by, if not controlled, these attractions will stunt emotional growth, ruin lives and hurt missed opportunities.
ANYTHING in excess, is dangerous, especially if it disables you completely.
But "gamers" will continue to nourish their time spent, exercising their fingers, to the death.
This wasted time ... can turn into a poison that destroys your soul.
Police Rant #1
Many of you know, I have a problem with disRESPECT and the BEST/WORST display of all, are callous, cold-blooded police officers.
I feel their bad behavior starts as a constant demanding of respect even though they display a horrible grandstanding of NO respect themselves.
PLEASE NOTE --- I am NOT putting all cops into this heartless basket, but definitely most!!
Policemen, with one false word from their lips, destroy lives.
In order to make themselves look positive among their peers and their superiors they will be sure criminals and non-criminals alike are beaten down, emotionally and/or physically .... they falsify items, lie, or control & manipulate, in order to make themselves look better within their little enforcement club.
To have ALL bow down to them, emotionally and physically is adrenaline for most of them.
For some of them, their home lives are completely different from their "control issue" careers. They might be the nicest, passive men in social situations, but step into their uniform and EVERYONE must bow down.
I'm not saying they don't come by it naturally, because when you constantly live in a life/death situation within your JOB scope, your habits are difficult to change.
However, there is a difference between criminals and normal everyday people.
After years on the force, hardened police officers often forget how to distinguish between the two.
Every police officer should have continuing education classes on respect, consideration, dignity for life, honor and self-esteem for oneself, which should include, but not be limited to, respecting the good normal people who pay their salaries through taxes.
I don't care WHO YOU ARE, Respect should NEVER be given to people who don't deserve it.
