Here are a few thoughts I would like to share. Please feel free to comment and expound. Yes, you can vent!

1. What are your feelings about the many gun shows with limited or no background checks for individuals to purchase assault weapons? Yes, you have a right to bear arms, but do you feel this is the right way to do it and do you feel safe?

2. There were many “Tea Parties” last week. Did you participate and if you did can you share your experience? What message do you want to send to this Administration and Congress?

3. What can the U.S. do to protect the freighters on open waters against piracy?  FreighterAre they doing all they can do? What should be done to the pirates once apprehended?

4. Were we sold a lie when we voted in state lotteries? If they are so great and contribute so much to our school system, why are our schools in such a mess financially?

5. Why do we pay sports figures so much? Wouldn’t it be better if they were paid based on their production and not just because they have a contract? baseball_gloveMore of an incentive-based pay structure. Baseball, basketball and football players should be paid more like golfers. If golfers don’t play well, they don’t get paid. That’s an incentive!

6. Ever scramble to get to a scheduled doctors appointment and then sit for an hour? Maybe we should receive compensation or a reduction on our bill when you wait more than 15 minutes. What do you think?

7. Why are drivers terrible everywhere?  DriversAre we too busy and distracted to grant courtesy to other drivers? What about just being safe on the roads today?

8. It kind of bugs me that sports figures claim they are not role models. Well, no matter what you say, kids will try to emulate everything you do. So whether you like it or not, you are a role model. But what kind of a role model are you?

9.  Have you ever noticed when watching television that all the commercials are synchronized? It is a conspiracy to stop viewers from channel surfing. I still surf!

10. Why do so many people in Hollywood, especially many women, love the bad boy example of men? What happens to all the good guys?

11. What has happened to customer service? Yes, the economy is bad and unemployment is at record levels, but it seems that common courtesy and customer service would help bolster business especially in this competitive environment.

12. Why is it that in any given sport, the final match is never as good as the playoffs? Makes you wonder how some teams got there in the first place.

13. What has happened to homeowner associations today? home They have got some of the most ridiculous rules. You can hardly be yourself anymore. Oh, OK, now I see why that could be a problem. Just kidding!

 

C’mon, share your thoughts and feel free to vent about these or other thoughts. Talk to me.

    I can’t possibly comment on ALL the things you said. I will comment on a couple. (or more)

    1. Sports figures salaries. They tried to cap the NHL salary in Canada to the dismay of not only the players but the fans. Most people didn’t buy into it and it was not a great success.

    2. Synchronized commercials. It’s why Tivo was invented, no? 🙂

    3. If you think wait times in the US are bad, try living in Canada! (I did) The single biggest complaint I have about the medical system there has to do with wait times.

    4. What happened to customer service is arrogance and expectations. We became a society of entitled feeling people where we think we’re entitled to behave in whatever way we choose just as we believe we’re entitled to have whatever we want without working. Part and parcel of that is the reality that there are no consequences.

    5. Women have always appeared to prefer bad boys. Do they find happiness that way? Nope. In the era of disposable relationships, people think they can, again, have what they want and make it work. The problem? Real men eat quiche. The man who really will do all it takes is the man who is probably standing in the shadows.

    6. As for HOA’s, well the original intent was protection back in the day when people worried incessantly about the kind of neighbors they may have. Back then it was inter racial fear. Later it became making sure your neighbors kept their yards free from debris and tidy. As it grew and became politicized, it was all about the association having power so now you get weird stipulations like no RV’s onsite for longer than 48 hours etc. People have to not only pay to have that rule, they now have to pay to store their toys elsewhere.

    It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad, mad, mad, mad, mad world.
