There is a solution to the problem Americans seem to have with the use of certain words. The solution? Script reform. They’ve done it in Japan and Turkey. So, why not in the good ol’ U. S. of A.? Yes, script reform would eliminate offensive words by removing all objectionable letters from our alphabet.
In short order, Americans could be free from nastiness and nonsense caused by the letter N. Additionally, the A word, the B word, C word, and F word would no longer plague our written or spoken language. How to eliminate thoughts of the offensive words would come later. (Possibly developed in Texas.)
Oh, never again having to endure abortions or botched boob jobs. (A win/win for Texas!) Just think of it, cold and flu season would never come around once “C” and “F” were banned. Yes, script reform is the answer. Banning offensive words will solve our problems and make life better for everyone.
Sound stupid? That’s because it is.
Allowing ourselves to be distracted by stupid stuff is how industries are sliced right under our noses. It’s how customer service for banking and telecommunications was raffled off to the lowest bidder. It’s how buying and selling debt has replaced a free market of goods and services within our borders. Fear mongers have perfected the art of creating distractions with stupid stuff so we won’t notice what is really happening. It’s easy as A B C.
For instance, policy makers don’t want us to see that a genetically modified diet creates genetically modified bodies. Avert your eyes to sick care as big business and prisons as a booming cottage industry. None of which are viable for the future, but who does it hurt really? No, I do NOT believe there is a conspiracy, only complacency.
What’s it going to take for effective leaders to emerge? What’s it going to take to stop old wounds from being reopened? What’s it going to take to piece together our fragmented society and move us toward freedom from fear mongering as a means of control?
Certainly the answer is not script reform. The in-fighting among legislators over language hasn’t solved our problems. Viagra maybe? No wait, that enlarges problems. We have enough legislation to choke a horse. What has that gotten us? Dead horses.
They’re dead already! For God’s sake STOP BEATING THEM!
Instead of selling ourselves to the lowest bidder, why not recognize our value? Instead of perpetuating a destructive cycle of poverty and imprisonment, why not rethink business as usual? Instead of behaving as entitled, why not behave as the world leaders we say we are? Instead of being America – the chop shop, why not find common ground before our country is renamed New China?
These are questions that should be debated. Instead our elected officials choose to keep dragging out issues that have already been addressed. A woman’s right to choose and a woman’s right to privacy have already been established. Why try to rewrite history when the future is waiting? Maybe it’s because the future doesn’t look so good. It needs more than lipstick and mascara to attract interest. The future needs thoughtful partners. The future needs intellect and imagination. The future needs inspiration and innovation. The future needs to be valued and respected. Instead we’ve placed the future in shackles. The future, already bruised enough by the past, is frightened, paralyzed, cringing in the shadows, wondering if there is anyone willing to stop the abuse and heal the wounds. Anyone able to lead the way to liberty and prosperity.
If we truly want to reduce welfare rolls, improve public education, prevent drug abuse, stop sexual abuse, child abuse, and abuses of power by elected officials, if we want to live in a society that encourages the growth of healthy, productive citizens, there needs to be a demand for answers. If we don’t demand answers, we won’t get them and if our elected leaders don’t have them, then we need different leaders.
If you are so inclined to exercise your freedom of choice, Tweet #ENOUGH to @GovernorPerry AND @TeamRickPerry AND @TexGov or a legislator of your choice.
