Saying NO…

It has really been hard for me to say no at times…Especially if I really like someone and want to please them, but the older I get the more I realize that many times the best things to do is just say no…NO…..Some of our democratic friends up for elections need a no vote….Not all of them….Some of our republican friends need a no vote….Not all of them….It has become necessary for the voters to keep up with the way our elected officials are conducting themselves in Washington and in our state capitals….One term may be enough….I don’t know, they may just become corrupt quicker….Saying No to drugs and alcohol and smoking is really hard for our youth, thanks to TV and some of the programs going into the homes across America…What a mess, huh?….How will Mexico ever get out of the fix they are in because they have the drugs and the people across the border in America has the money and such a high demand for drugs….Saying NO has to be the answer…And as long as people can beg, borrow or steal money to pay for them, it will remain a problem….I used to have customers in Mexico in the 1990’s and went across the border several times a year to visit and entertain those customers….Now, there is no way I would go across. I would not have a problem saying, NO sir, to a boss who would ask me to go across the border today… Does anyone go across any more?….. And saying NO to unethical behavior in the work place and government jobs…I am sure some folks still are ethical, but one rotten apple really spoils the barrel…Pay to play…. what a hot game in New Mexico, probably most of the states have the same problem….We have to learn how to say NO to any rotten deal…It ain’t easy  being negative, well, it seems like negative, but no to all that bad crap, no is really a positive…can I get a AMEN on that?….I don’t know for sure what prompted this post tonight but I think it came from reading this morning’s paper and listening to today’s news…..Who was the lady that sang, “We sure could use, a little good news today.”…..We still can…

The reason may be that so many today don’t know how to spell “no”.

Could be…but we need to learn, huh?
