Nobody's Opinion

Nobody Wonders About Floors and Ceilings

Nobody Wonders

Here’s a few giblets of thoughts that were on my mind today:

Nobody Wonders: Why do I seem to be the only person who still marvels as a child when a plane full of overweight people and heavy suitcases, gets up in the air within a few seconds and within minutes is gliding smoothly at $35,000 feet? To think of all the HOURS of work put in by men, from the original Wright Brothers to the men who built the modern 747—-it just overwhelms me every single time I fly. I simply can’t help but feel in awe of what man has accomplished. My emotions never change whenever I fly. And I always wonder why…I seem to be the only person on the plane who feels that awe.

Everybody else takes it for granted. What the hell is wrong with me?

A frequent flyer sitting next to me on the flight back to St. Louis said that he had once flown in a plane that was struck by lightning. He also witnessed a stewardess being slammed into the ceiling on a bumpy flight. He mentioned these facts while we were flying through a lightning storm and it got pretty bumpy.
While a plane is statically safer than any car, not many people survive a plane crash. In a car, you have some control…in a plane, you are powerless.

Which makes me also wonder…it’s all how you look at things, isn’t it?

Nobody Wonders: Yes, here’s another thing I wonder about. I couldn’t wait to get back to St. Louis, and the trees. The plants in Arizona, while very pretty, were so DIFFERENT than the plants in Missouri, that you have to marvel at the difference between a cactus, and an oak tree. Both are plants, right? Arizona looks like Mars to me. Beautiful…but strange.

Both species of plants are simple mother nature. They developed to fit their environment. So, why can’t we admit how different races of people are? Are people not like plants?  Or does our brain go beyond mother nature? Is the theory of Thomas Sowell, who points out that the Africans did not develop as a race due to the geography of Africa, logical?

And why do they keep ignoring the true differences in men and women?

Okay. We all know it’s politics. Still, if I suggested that blacks are superior in basketball because they are tall and have a natural talent for it, and Jews are more cerebral, I would be called a racist. But since no one is equal, why do they keep insisting on equality? A dream which, scientifically speaking, cannot EVER be reached?

(Okay, we know the answer to that.)

Which brings me to Trump haters.

I was sitting next to a man of very high intellect on my way back to St. Louis. We had the most interesting conversation, but I found that our opinions of President Trump were very different. He saw Trump as a true narcissist. A typical CEO. So, this nobody wonders if he didn’t come to this conclusion, because the man DEALS all the time with big CEO’s, who he admitted, were all narcissists.

I saw Prescient Trump very differently. I saw him as a man who saw what was wrong with America and didn’t sound like a rehearsed politician.

Politicians talk a great game, but mostly do nothing. No matter what you say about the man, Trump prefers to ACT rather than talk.

Nobody Wonders if MY bias toward President Trump is because I do nothing but absorb politics all day, and have never had to deal with a CEO. I don’t have a high paying job, and I have had to watch the destruction day after day of my city, my town, my very neighborhood.

Therefore, as the song goes: “One man ceiling is another man’s floor.” or is it more:

“You’re right from your side, and I’m right from mine.

We’re both just one too many mornings and a thousand miles behind.”

Nobody Wonders one more thing:

Why nobody in Arizona can give good directions? I think, it must be the heat.
