American Gestapo

At some point in the future it seems that we all must give up the freedom of living our lives in what we all believe is called privacy. The shooting in Orlando, Florida was the first thing I heard about today. My thoughts were at the time I hope the person who did the shooting was at least not Muslim. Sadly I was right. This is going to change the way things are done in regards to race once again in America. We have to ask ourselves how much more of our freedoms are we as a society are we willing to give up to feel “safe” during our daily journey through life. We all judge each other without thinking about it everyday.

Racial profiling is a term we all understand in America. It was a tool used all through our history to keep an eye on those who were different from what was the norm at a particular point in time. Asians, Mexicans,slaves the list goes on and on. The person who committed this crime is no longer among the living. He has made it more acceptable to have our personal lives “monitored” for the good of all. When it comes to the human emotional state. When we are scared as a society all are suspect. That is the scary part.

I am a 64year old male. I live in California. I continute to blog as a way to give my opinion on things that I read about. I am a baby boomer and I feel that because of the life I have experienced, and the times we are living through the need to be examined with a critical eye. I feel this is my purpose in life. Live,learn, and comment. I will attempt to make this happen.
