Didn’t really want to do this!!

I have been struggling lately on whether I wanted to post my thoughts on the current matters going on in the country.

It wasn’t until I read a quote from Edmond Burke that I decided that I could no longer hold my silence.

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” Edmond Burke

So yeah… That quote is a bit dated and yeah I am in no way a man, but I feel it is my duty as an author and a citizen of the United States to voice my opinion.

Colin Kapernick is out of control. Just tonight I heard that while he was practicing for his game against the San Diego chargers he was wearing socks that made a derogatory remark about our police officers that keep us safe every day. On the cusp of the incident where he disrespected our national anthem and our flag and everything it stands for.

Yes, I understand that as an American that is his right to express himself, but I do not agree that a public figure should blatantly disregard those who gave their lives so that he could have those rights. He is not making a political statement he is shaming all of those who worked, bled, and sacrificed their lives so he could choose whether he wants to stand and honor those people who made it possible for him to be in the profession he is in and make the tens of millions of dollars he makes a year.

I’m all for equality and I HATE racism. I understand where many African Americans are coming from. I do not however; believe in the Black Lives Matter movement using violence and murder to get a point across. Every celebrity that has become a member of that movement I have boycotted and I urge my followers to do the same.

The mothers of the movement, as Alicia Keyes called them and Beyoncé honored them last week, are the mothers of criminals who were told by the police to lower their weapons. Do not resist the police and if they tell you to do something, do it. That way everyone is breathing the next day.

Police are trained to protect themselves as well as the community in which they serve. They are people. They have parents and siblings, husbands and wives and children just like the rest of us that they want to come home to at the end of their shift.

I have come to the conclusion that I have to boycott one of my favorite TV Shows this season because one of the members of the black lives movement is going to be a judge this season. This makes me incredibly sad, but as long as The Voice employs members of a movement who use violence and anarchy to get thier point across I will not watch it and I will never buy or listen to another Alicia Keyes song again. I urge my followers to do the same

Food for thought

You know I wrote Born To Resist over two years ago I had a bunch of editting and stuff going for the last two years. When I think about the politics behind my book and the crap that is going on in America right now I realize that it might not be too far off the mark. We could be headed for disaster if something isn’t done. Don’t get me wrong I am of the ALL LIVES MATTER mindset but I honestly believe if we don’t do something about the illegal immigrant population in this country we could be in for a very rude awakening one day. Letting potentially dangerous people  (not saying they all are dangerous) come into our country illegally is not the way to protect the people of this country. Born To Resist is just an example my own interpretation of what could happen if something isn’t done soon.

Hello again!

So I have recently taken some time off from writing and I am working towards a BS degree in business sports management! I know that is a far cry from what I have been doing here but, the end goal is to start a nonprofit sports program for underprivilaged kids to help them pay the fees required to play sports. Anyway I have gotten off topic. I have decided once and for all to Self Publish my book Born to Resist and hopefully if I get all of the formatting stuff right it should be available on smashwords and it’s partner retailers soon! I also started an author page on facebook. I will post a link to that page so all of my blogging friends can check it out and see what’s happening with my book and other releases that I may have coming soon! Thanks for reading and I will try to start up with the book reviews and short stories as time goes on. Thanks again and Happy Reading!!
