So what is true 'Passion'? And we are not speaking about some lustful Casanova-like spider monkey pumping his partner in every porno position possible
Nor are we talking about the hunger to go out and make as much money as humanly possible to buy as many objects or 'things' as possible so when you die, it all stays when you go to heaven, hell or whatever non-believers believe..
Really now.. what is true Passion?
It requires at times singular focus; a dedication and a deep belief no matter what others may think in the rightness of your cause.
It is something that brings up the 'RRRRRrrrr' from your inner-spirit when everyone else is going 'ho-hum'
Maybe a lot of people have this passion inside them.. Who knows..
Sure as shit not to many really allow it to come out!
Funny how its totally acceptable in society to get bat-shit crazy over a football team and whether the coach should have done this or that on 4th down and Goal..
But not so 'cool' to get in a fury over something far more important and affecting us all like the poisonous permeation of Political Correctness which has seeped into every part of this society for at least the last 25 years..
Just not acceptable to feel passionate about how truly outside the parameter we are kept as individuals and society from having direct access to our leaders and even the greater corporate media conglomeration..
Angry about something? Want to vent? Here ya' go.. 140 characters or less...
Or express your feelings a comment pen (think ostrich) or pit or coop (think chicken) that no one reads yet requires you to divulge ample amount of personal information in order to register..
Of course the MFs on the radio get 20 hours a week to keep saying their opinions repeatedly nonstop to the masses listening in their cars.. Not quite 'equal' is it?
No quicker or more powerful a way to feel like an utter loony-loon then to interact with someone detached, even when it is you who are the Sane one trying to fight the good fight in a world so deeply apathetic to everything outside their doorstep.
Passionate about the state of the domestic and global economy..
Passionate about the desire to see real Change and not the bullshit meaning politicians like Obama spew every election then do nothing
Passionate about seeing the super-wealthy take a nice economic punch or two or three to the gut and those heavily invested in the market to suffer a serious comeuppance
Passionate that the Individual in society not only matters but is very Important; Individual thought and belief and expression vs the Collective. And if the values shared between the two are one and the same, let it be because the Individual came to that conclusion on his/her own
Passionate that we do not want any person, group or entity to tell us what to do, what to think, how to act, or make us feel like failures or old maids because we're not married with 2.5 kids and furnishing our home by the time we're 30...
The greater System does not care what you think or feel and really doesn't want to be bothered unless its for their benefit such as answering polls, taking surveys and for a lucky few, participating as a Neilsens' TV family
Everything else, no one in the powerful political and corporate media conglomerate world give two bleeps whether you like the way they govern, the crap they put on TV or their PC decisions..
Ex: That wretched social-engineering network ESPN having a token woman as a color-commentator for a playoff baseball game just to make some kind of meaningless 'history' (as happened last night during the Yankees-Astros game)
Certainly wish we do but...
All we can do is keep doing here what we're doing and take comfort in the fact we know we've touched and helped wake up at least some of you
And that just fuels our passions even more..
