Feeling Uncomfortable?

I don’t know about you, but seeing “news” reports about some person/group feeling uncomfortable and the expectation that government will “fix” it for you pisses me off.

Keeping well, as in not sick, is a priority of personal responsibility. Feeling “uncomfortable” is not an illness. It’s a state of mind. So if something makes you uncomfortable, deal with it on your own.

The Declaration of Independence lists three unalienable rights. They are the right to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. There is no guarantee of happiness. Nor is there a Constitutional protection to feel happy. It’s called personal responsibility. You are free to pursue it. How successful you are is totally up to you.

Despite what the media and Democrats in Washington will tell you,  it’s not the job or responsibility of government to make sure that nobody feels uncomfortable. It is this destructive practice of identity politics that they use to gain two things, power and control. If they can convince you that you are a victim, and they are the solution, they are counting on getting your vote. The Constitution be dammed.

The only result of a growing and all-powerful government is less of all three. Less life, less liberty, and less chance to pursue happiness.

Some people just need to get over it and grow up.
