Not sure WHO or WHAT I am anymore..

confused

I have become more complicated, and I want to thank those of you who are brave enough to still associate with me regardless of what I have become.

 

The following is a recap of my current identity:

I was born white, which makes me a racist.

 

I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which makes me a fascist.

I am heterosexual, which makes me a homophobe.

 

I am a Christian, which makes me an infidel.

 

I am older than 70 and retired, which makes me a useless old man or woman!

I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the main stream media tells me, which makes me a reactionary.

 

I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, which makes me a xenophobe.

I value my safety and that of my family, therefore I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a right-wing extremist.

 

I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual’s merits, which makes me anti-social.

I, and my friends, acquired a good education without student loans and no debt at graduation, which makes me some kind of odd underachiever.

 

I believe in the defense and protection of the homeland by all citizens, which makes me a militarist.

Please help me come to terms with this, because I‘m not sure who I am anymore!

 

And now, my newest problem: I’m not sure which bathroom to use!?!

Young fella, if you’re looking for trouble, I’ll accommodate ya.” – As Rooster Cogburn in the 1969 film True Grit,

I won’t be wronged, I won’t be insulted, and I won’t be laid a hand on. I don’t do these things to other people, and I require the same from them.” – As J.B Books in the 1976 film The Shootist ,

Well, there are some things a man just can’t run away from.” – As the Ringo Kid in the 1939 film Stagecoach

I’ve made over 250 pictures and have never shot a guy in the back. Change it.” – Statement made by John Wayne while shooting the 1976 film The Shootist

All battles are fought by scared men who’d rather be some place else.”- As Capt. Rock Well Torrey in the 1965 film In Harm’s Way

Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway

Life’s hard. It’s even harder when you’re stupid.

I’ve always followed my father’s advice he told me, first to always keep my word and, second, to never insult anybody unintentionally. If I insult you, you can be goddamn sure I intend to. And, third, he told me not to go around looking for trouble.

– John Wayne

DONALD TRUMP, How To Get RichIf you’re thinking already, you might as well think big.

In my life, there are two things I’ve found I’m very good at: overcoming obstacles and motivating good people to do their best work.” (New York Magazine, 1987)

One of the problems when you become successful is that jealousy and envy inevitably follow. There are people — I categorize them as life’s losers — who get their sense of accomplishment and achievement from trying to stop others. As far as I’m concerned, if they had any real ability, they wouldn’t be fighting me, they’d be doing something constructive themselves.” (“Trump: The Art of the Deal,” 1987)

Living your words, walking your talk, and talking your walk. (“Midas Touch: Why Some Entrepreneurs Get Rich and Why Most Don’t,” 2011)

You know the funny thing, I don’t get along with rich people. I get along with the middle class and the poor people better than I get along with the rich people.” (“Good Morning America,” 2011)
One of the key problems today is that politics is such a disgrace. Good people don’t go into government. I’d want to change that.” (The Advocate, 2000)

Darn

It looks like the story is not going to go anywhere, but I can’t blame anyone but myself.
I joined the lessons on Blogging 101 but did not stay with it. My reasons pale next to why.
I saved all lessons and will actually do them. We all have things happening in our lives on
a daily basis and dealing with everything can be quite a chore, but in the end, it builds our
character.

He Thought He Would Be Eaten Alive. Instead, He Got A Winning Photograph That Made Me Care.

I always thought I would like to be a photographer, but I don’t have the knowledge or equipment, darn it. Sounds like a cop out doesn’t it.  Any way I applaud Paul Nicklen, he has a fantastic job,
