This American Lifestyle: October Questions

Things That Make Us Americans

These are questions I present to you that if people answered in the positive, I feel, our country would be back on track. If you answer no to all of the, then maybe you need to stop and reevaluate your life and how you’re living it. Sounds judgmental I know, but I think it’s high time we stop avoiding issues and high time we take responsibility for the things we absolutely can change. You need to be confronted. You need to be told you are not right. You need to be told it IS your fault.

Here are the questions. Enjoy!

  • When was the last time you cuddled on the couch with your wife/husband? Without the T.V. being on.
  • When was the last time you baked a pie for your neighbor?
  • When was the last time you played catch with your kids?
  • When was the last time you went to church with the whole family?
  • When was the last time you washed your car with your kids?
  • When was the last time you removed the rust, painted that messy wall, fixed the sprinklers or did chores around the house?
  • When was the last time you played board games with your kids?
  • When was the last time you just sat and gossiped with your neighbors on the front porch?
  • When was the last time you saw a sunset with your wife / husband?
  • When was the last time you saw an intellectually stimulating independent film?
  • When was the last time you read to your children?
  • When was the last time you had a block party with all the neighbors?
  • When was the last time you went fishing with your kids?
  • When was the last time you voted for an independent candidate i.e. not republican nor democrat?
  • When was the last time you read the newspaper cover to cover?
  • When was the last time you invited those poor neighbors over for dinner? You know the one’s down the street that just lost their job?
  • When was the last time you went to a school board meeting?
  • When was the last time you looked over all your kid’s text books?
  • When was the last time you gave your kid a treat that didn’t have sugar in it?
  • When was the last time you told your kid “no” for their own good and not just because you were annoyed?
  • When was the last time you went to a city / power company / water company meeting? Researched what was going on and stood up and confronted them about raising your bills?
  • When was the last time you wrote your congressman / senator / president?
  • When was the last time you wrote your state congressman / senator / governor?
  • When was the last time you confronted your mayor about a financial issue?
  • When was the last time you confronted your local sherriff about unjust laws implimented just to make the city / police money?
  • When was the last time you actually looked at the real numbers of deaths by: DUI in your city / state; murder in your city / state; deaths by lack of seat belts; deaths or murder by drugs like marijuana; deaths by terrorists; deaths by supposed flu? [ I encourage you to go find the real numbers. You’ll be surprised how low they are, yet millions or billions are being spent on them or people are being charged for them for no reason. ]
  • When was the last time you deposited money into your regular, plain old, savings account?
  • When was the last time you compared your interest rate being paid to your savings account to other banks and credit unions?
  • When was the last time you compared the fees being charged to you by your bank to other banks and credit unions?
  • When was the last time you stopped and calculated how much you spend on food / clothing / stuff each week / month / year?
  • When was the last time you bought something you did not need? i.e. that wasn’t real food: breakfast / lunch / dinner; or real clothes: for summer / winter; or real bills: rent / basic car note [yes one single car, not 2 or 3] / power / water / trash / basic telephone [yes just basic, not cell phone]
  • When was the last time your child bought something he / she did not need? i.e. your child shouldn’t be buying anything, you should provide them with the basic necessities, anything else should go into their college fund, not toys, video games etc.
  • When was the last time you were behind on bills, yet: ate out or went shopping or bought something rather expensive?
  • When was the last time you went on patrol for your neighborhood watch?

These questions are mainly to make you stop and think. Think about your habits you’ve been getting into. Think about the example you set your children. Think about how you neglect your neighbors. Think about how you neglect your spouse or children. Our country really was a set of villages and we were all involved with each other and were interested in each other. Now we don’t have the time for anything.

We are slowly being dumbed down and our children are being dumbed down by what they learn in school, see on t.v. and see in the movies. Yes, your child isn’t going to turn out as smart as you. You might think because they play with video games and computers that they are far smarter than you, but those are simply different tools. Your children will turn out dumb. The system wants them as dumb as possible. The system wants them to do drugs, regardless of what you hear. Think about it for a second. When you hear a report about drugs on t.v. do they tell you all about the drug so you can know where / when / how to buy it?
