“Free” online is not free

Let’s be perfectly clear, when you get something for free online or a free online service, you are in some way paying for it. It may not be monetary to you but a wealth of information to the provider. Facebook, free game apps for your smartphone, and free online services all do it to gather information on you whether it be a one time affair or a continuous gathering of information on you such as Facebook. Most are harmless but having this information compiled on you just makes it a goldmine for unscrupulous third party companies or individuals to make a fortune on. In the 21st century it’s not about stealing your money it’s about stealing your identity and individuality!

Equality is for all and needs participation from all

All this talk of equality today and equality for all…but yet I see Dr King’s message lost daily when I’m looked at as a white guy and automatically perceived with status. I was brought up to look beyond color and to listen and communicate accordingly but yet I see, I see just like a person of color a bias and I struggle and make that extra effort to show that I am only and individual, an individual trying to communicate with another individual but a lot of times it is daunting and sure dwindles that desire to just wanting to make a connection. I know I’m not the only person that feels that way, perhaps just the only person willing to admit it. I will continue to treat everyone like I would want to be treated but I will not treat anyone with special status just because they may have been considered unequal by others.

Homeowners Association (HOA) bans flying of American Flag

No Homeowners Association (HOA) should have it in it’s rules that one cannot fly an American Flag conversely anyone in the Homeowners Association knew of the rules before buying into the community. So don’t cry patriotism and your rights being violated even with the “Freedom to Display the American Flag Act of 2005” when you put up your 15 foot flag pole. There is a reason your HOA has the rules in effect and most likely attracted you to the community. Get on the HOA board and get the rules changed to everyone’s agreement.
