I’m just curious. We all have perceptions in and about our daily lives and environment (we do). Correct or incorrect, valid or invalid, they are what we see at that moment. If I see a flock of white birds flying overhead, it’s probably a flock of doves. If I hear and see a group of 4-legged animals mooing in a field, chances are it’s a herd of cows. We all know what crying babies sound like, heard trucks, trains and cars go by. We’ve even heard the sound of thunder. I don’t need to draw anything for you are you’ve already perceived it.

I’ve heard many mothers talk very bad (nasty and vulgar) to their kids in public. Sad. And I have seen many go beyond the spanking (discipline) mode as well. But we have no real control over that. We’ve seen and heard loud and obnoxious males burp and pass gas in public like nothing.

We draw our conclusions, just like if you see a person wearing a pointed white sheet, eyes cut out, with a hood, and yelling anti-black stuff. I drew another when I heard that Democrat from Michigan use very profane language in a tirade. Am I to guess that my perception of Democrats has just been solidified by this action? I mean, remember, “Birds of a feather ....”

According to the Huffington Post, you are judged by the company you keep. It’s still a scary image seeing that parenting style used on her kids. Hey, I know, it is no one’s business, but still a reflection, a perception, if you may.

Check out this Democrat from Michigan. She belongs to the Democrats. I have read and researched many psychological studies on this very subject and it’s pretty scary. But hey, the congressperson in question belongs to the Democrats.

So I am merely human to judge by the company you keep, and that person from Michigan is all yours. I bet nothing will happen and that behavior will be condoned. So go ahead and embrace her, she needs you and your type. Have a grand day and God bless.
