If you listen to any type of media outlet over the last couple weeks you have heard about Greg Hardy. If you haven’t heard he is a NFL player who beat up his girlfriend a few months ago and this past week pictures of the attack were released. Not that I needed to say that because you can tell by looking at his picture he probably hits women.
Beating your significant other up is one of those few issues that nobody is for. I would say people hate domestic abuse as much as they hate murder. It’s also one of those issues where everybody can say they’re a hero. “What Greg Hardy did was wrong, he shouldn’t be allowed to play. How are the Cowboys letting him play?” Nobody on the planet disagrees with what I just said and most people on the planet have even said it for themselves. I have some bad news for you. Saying that does not make you a hero.
This topic makes us sound like politicians when they are asked “What would you do about little Tommy who doesn’t have access to breakfast and a good school.” The politician replies “I believe every kid including Tommy should have access to breakfast and a good school.” The person who asked the question is satisfied with the answer and the politician can label themselves a hero. Again saying that does not make you a hero.
The other thing people have done with Greg Hardy is call for sponsors to drop the Cowboys. If they start losing money from sponsors that will show them. Again, something we all agree on, but you shouldn’t feel good about yourself for saying that.
We now live in a society where actions and words are equal. I tell someone I ran a marathon and they tell me they thought about running one once. To them we are now even. We’re not though, because I actually did something!
The one common thing I have heard is somebody needs to do something about Greg Hardy. Whether that be the NFL, the Cowboys, or the sponsors. The one thing I have not heard anywhere is that you reading this need to do something. This past week the pictures came out on a Thursday. The Cowboys were schedule to play in the Sunday night game a couple of days later. That game that an 11.4 rating.
If you really are against Greg Hardy’s action as much as you say. Don’t watch the Cowboys. Can you imagine what the NFL would have done if that game got a 1.2 because people were boycotting it due to Hardy? He would have been out of the league faster than Tim Tebow. The NFL would have panicked because people actually stood up to them on this issue. Instead, everyone says they are against it, then tunes in to watch the football game. People are against domestic abuse, just not enough to skip a Sunday night football game.
To all you who complained and then watched the game, BE QUITE! You don’t really care. You say you care to get on the right side of the issue, but you don’t actually care. You are not a hero. You will say somebody should do something about this, just as long as that somebody isn’t you. You are a fraud.
For the last year or so it feels like a have been hearing a lot about the $10 dollar bill. I have been hearing that a woman needs to be on it. Even a couple nights ago during the GOP debate a question about it popped up. They asked who should be on it and the candidates answered Susan B. Anthony, Harriet Truman, Rosa Parks, their wives, etc…
Anyone who picked there wife I immediately lost all respect for. I hate that answer. Who is your best friend? My wife. That is false. Calling your wife you best friend should be insulting for her. Being married should transcend friendship. It is something far greater because people have many best friends but only one wife. My wife will never be my best friend! I should mention that I am single and the reason I am single is making a lot more sense to me now.
I have never understood why woman weren’t more offended of Bruce now Cate Jenner. What he did was basically say the only thing it takes to be a woman is to put makeup on and wear ladies clothes. That should have infuriated woman everywhere. There is so SO much more to woman than that. Like their ability to do laundry…:) Kidding. The $10 bill does the same thing.
Woman I know you have struggled in this country. I know you were denied voting rights until 1920 and make 77 cents to our dollar, but I know how to fix it. If we put a woman on the $10 bill, all will be forgotten. The way you fix all the problems woman have is by simply putting a woman on the $10 bill. They should be burning down buildings for that type of mindset. Woman should be insulted that people think currency is holding them back.
If we are going to change a bill in the year 2020, wouldn’t it make more sense to change the $20? There are a few reasons why.
- We are going to change it in the year 2020 so why not change the $20? The campaign could be in 2020 change the $20.
- I haven’t seen a $10 bill in months. I go to the ATM and can only get $20’s. I buy something for $11 bucks and get a $5 and some ones for my change. A $10 bill has to be the least used bill we have.
- In my wallet right now I have zero cash in it. What I do have is 3 credit cards. Cash is going extinct. What about a Rosa Parks credit card? Instead of saving 1% on all purchases it could be a donation where 1% of all purchase goes to the Rosa Parks Scholarship Foundation? That seems like it would help out a lot more people than changing a bill would.
Last I checked graduations rates in this country aren’t great. We have a national debt that is skyrocketing, and far too many single parents. What I like to do is work big to small on my problems. If my roof is leaking and my bathroom is dirty I am going to fix the roof first. I am very pragmatic that way. Once the roof is fixed then I will clean bathroom. Changing a bill seems like we are cleaning the bathroom before we fix the leak.
Why don’t we worry about are national debt first? Then move onto the $10 bill? The national debt is a real problem and changing the bill won’t mean anything in 25 years when we are forced to use the Chinese Yuan.
If you are a woman and you are reading this let me tell you something. Nobody can hold you back. If you really want something you can get it. Don’t let anyone tell you a $10 bill will change anything. I don’t know a single woman that is held back because she is woman. The company I work for is owned by a woman. My boss is a woman. Nothing has held them back because they didn’t allow anything to hold them back.
The best advice I have ever got in life was this. The only person who can hold you back is yourself. Nobody else cares enough about you to hold you back.
If you are a woman and are waiting for 2020 to go after your goals/dreams I have bad news. Changing the $10 bill will not help you one bit! Success is all about mindset. We all have different journey’s in life, some easier than others. The day you give up and say the system is against me is the day you lose. The system may be against me or it may be against you. I really don’t know and I really don’t care. I am going to go out and bust my butt trying to succeed in life. I am confident that even if the system is trying to hold me back it won’t be able to.
Don’t use a crutch in life if you have no injury.
