Can’t dodge reality

There are points in our lives when we want to see something for something other than the damned truth. At the end of the day it is a choice to accept it or remain disconnected from the world and reality as it is.

Recently I went on a very rough hike up a mountain on a trail that was rated as difficult. Turns out I was not physically ready for that hike especially since I had not been on a hike in over 20 years. At this point I could be mad that the person I went with told me it was easy. In the end the real fault lies with myself for no researching it myself as a discovered when I searched the trail on the internet.

The tie-in is that too many people rely on second hand information rather than find out for themselves or make choices for themselves. By not seeking information one is not seeking to discover the reality of the situation. This is also a reality that the Democrats are learning with the Supreme Court ruling in favor of President Trump’s “Travel Ban”. With all the issues regarding fake news and anonymous sources its time people stop relying on the old school mainstream media, celebrities opinions, and opinions of college professors. Its time people seek out what they know and define what they don’t. Second hand info only is a mechanism to allow for another party to have some degree of control over your thoughts and actions with out being responsibility for them. Its time this country gets back under control, gets its national debt under control and is able to defend itself. At this point these are things former president Obama compromised by pushing agenda over national well being. Its time to get back to reality…
