About oneta hayes
Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
I am in agreement: The whole thing is so out of whack that common sense and rational thinking have no chance against a reimagined view of victimhood. As I tell people often; I don’t care if you’re green with purple stripes, if you make a mistake own up to it and if people treat you as they would treat everyone else then it’s not discrimination.
I was reading Thomas Sowell’s life story. He started out as a Marxist, but after doing research he said basically the same thing you said. He was born into a very poor family, raised by a female family member, and had to work hard to get to the point where he could write books and become an economics professor. His life story is well worth reading.
I love Thomas Sowell’s writings. Don’t see them often any more. I need to find how to get on his e’mail notifications. Thank you for your comment.
He retired from writing a regular syndicated column, but he’s still writing books.
Thank you for updating me. He is brilliant.
Yes, he is. His brain is a national treasure.
Amen! Well done, Oneta.
Well expressed. Well Done ! Thank you for the reblogging.
Thanks, Faye. More to come. 😀
