Your Loved One Died. Why Do You Care Now?

I was recently talking to someone and they were telling me about how they had just lost a loved one.

It seems no matter who you are or what you do in the world this is something all of us will experience at least once in our lifetime.

I asked this person what their thoughts were about losing this person and they told me they were sad and upset because they will never get to see this person again or have any more time to spend with this person.

I asked this person two follow-up questions about what they said.

  1. How much did you see this person while they were alive?

  2. How much time did you spend with this person while they were alive?

To each of these questions, their answer was “not a lot”.

That made me think...

"If you didn't see this person a lot while they were alive or spend a lot of time with them, why are you sad and upset now?"

I know that is a callous question but while they were here it didn't seem like a big deal to you, but now that they are gone all of a sudden it's a big deal to you?

While they were here you could have gone and seen them. You could have gone and spent time with them, but for whatever reason, you chose not to. 

Now that they are gone you don't have that option anymore.

Maybe, what we need to do is start rethinking our options and our priorities a little differently in life.

So maybe ask yourself these questions the next time you think about someone who is in your life that you say you love.

  1. Why shouldn't I go see them?

  2. Why shouldn't I go spend some time with them?

Something tells me if you made that very small change in your own mindset that your life might be a little better.

Men Caring Vs Women Expecting


I heard a quote the other day and it stuck with me so I want to talk to you guys about it today.

The quote was:

Men are taught from a young age how to care for a woman, but they don't know what to expect from a woman. Women are taught from a young age what to expect from a man, but they are not taught how to care for a man.”

In today's society, young women still expect a man to give them traditional values.

When I say “Traditional Values” from a man I mean such as “Providing” for a woman, “Provisioning” for a woman, and “Protecting” a woman.

But, young women today are not providing men with traditional values in return.

Instead, they see themselves as liberated and progressive and feel that female “Traditional Values” are oppressive and degrading.

I think that is a major reason why we see the highest divorce rate in our history.

I think that is why men are quitting on relationships and going their own way.

I don't think this is going to get any better until we make some real changes in our society and culture as a whole.

What do you think about “Traditional Values” in our society today?

What do you think about views that women have about “Traditional Values” today?

What do you think needs to happen to start turning the divorce rate around and for families to begin to flourish in our society again?

Where Are All Of Our Children Going?


Where are all the kids going?

I read something the other day and it made me stop and think...

Do you know how many children go missing in the world each year?


Can you believe that?

Of that 8 million about 460,000 of those kids are Americans. That is about 2,300 kids a day that just goes missing in America.

About 28,000 of those kids are found a year in the U.S.

I was never a math genius but if you do the math that is about 432,000 kids who are never found in the U.S. alone each year.

What do you think happens to those kids?

Where do you think they are?

Why do you think we never hear about this on the news?

What's being done to stop this?

Wake Up World And Start Following The Money


Follow the Money...

Have you ever heard that phrase before?

In the world today who do you think owns almost all of the companies that we as the common people use?

There are basically two companies that own all of the major companies in the world today.

These two companies are Vanguard and BlackRock both of which are considered “Asset Management” companies.

Who do you think owns Vanguard and BlackRock?

Vanguard set out in 1975 under a radical ownership structure that remains unique in the asset management industry. The company is owned by its member funds, which in turn are owned by fund shareholders. (Currently 8.1 Trillion dollars.)

The Top 5 Owners of Vanguard are as follows:

  • Blackrock Fund Advisors
  • Dimensional Fund Advisors
  • The Vanguard Group Inc.
  • Wellington Management Company
  • SsgA Funds Management

BlackRock is owned by Larry Fink who is the Founder, CEO, and Chairman. He and seven partners formed BlackRock in 1988. (Currently over 10 Trillion dollars.)

The seven partners are:

  • Robert S. Kapito
  • Susan Wagner
  • Barbara Novick
  • Ben Golub
  • Hugh Frater
  • Ralph Schlosstein
  • Keith Anderson

Both companies are also heavily invested in each other's company and their holdings.

Do you see any problems with this arrangement?

Do any of the names mentioned here mean anything to you?

Maybe, it's time you start doing some of your own research and start looking at the bigger financial picture that is currently happening in the world around us today.

The time for being uninformed or uneducated has to come to an end and educated and informed people need to start being aware and standing up to be heard.

Lawmakers Are Pushing To Raise Minimum Age For Social Media.


(Picture from Wikipedia)

Currently, there is a debate going on about raising the age for children to be able to be on Social Media.

It has even gone so far as Sen. Josh Hawley's introducing a new bill the "MATURE Act" (Making Age-Verification Technology Uniform, Robust, and Effective) that would ban children under 16 from being on Social Media platforms.

The thoughts behind this are that young children's minds are so impressionable and also not fully formed yet so what kind of long-term harm is social media doing to young minds?

There is debate on both sides of this new bill and one of the biggest hurdles if this bill was to pass would be how would you implement this law and actually keep children under 16 off of social media platforms.

What are your thoughts on this new bill?

Should we ban children under 16 from being on social media?

Or, do you not see this as a problem and we should just let it be?

Full on Invasion or Just Weather Balloons? You Decide.


Over the last couple of days, we've experienced the following...

We sent an F-22 Raptor to shoot down a spherical-shaped object that was flying over Alaska at 40,000 feet.

Now they are trying to recover what is left of it.

We sent an F-22 to shoot down another spherical-shaped object that was flying over the Yukon in Canada.

Now they are trying to recover what is left of it.

Then we sent F-15 Eagles to intercept a spherical object flying over Montana.

There hasn't been any report of the object being shot down yet, but all the airspace over Montana was shut down as of this morning.

That makes me think of two different things.

  1. What are these spherical objects they are shooting down?

  2. What else could be really going on that they don't want us to see or know about?

Will A.I. Be A Positive Or Negative Impact On Humanity In The Near Future?


Will Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) have a positive or negative impact on humanity in the near future is a hotly debated topic with valid arguments on both sides? 

While some believe that A.I. will bring about an age of abundance and prosperity, others warn of its dangers to human existence.

On the one hand, A.I. has the potential to revolutionize many industries and improve our daily lives. 

For example, it can automate routine tasks, freeing time for humans to focus on more meaningful work. 

In the medical field, A.I. can assist doctors in diagnosing diseases and developing new treatments. 

Furthermore, A.I. has the potential to help solve some of the world's biggest problems, such as hunger or child trafficking.

On the other hand, there are those who believe that A.I. could have a negative impact on society. 

They worry that the widespread use of A.I. will lead to job loss for many people, exacerbating income inequality and potentially causing social unrest. 

There are also concerns about the ethical implications of creating machines that can make decisions without human oversight. 

For example, what happens if an A.I. system makes a decision that causes harm to humans or violates their rights?

There are also concerns about the potential for A.I. to be weaponized by governments or other organizations, leading to a new era of conflict and violence. 

Moreover, there is a risk that A.I. systems could malfunction or be hacked, causing widespread damage.

In conclusion, If we consider the potential consequences and put measures in place to prevent harm, A.I. could bring about a new age of prosperity and opportunity. 

However, if we neglect the potential dangers and let this technology develop unchecked, we could be headed for a SkyNet future.
