What’s up America, I’m Jason Franklin….. and it’s time to Excuse My Moderation. Let me first tell you who I am… I am one of those upper, middle class kids who had it all growing up. I went to private schools, public schools, took great vacations, had two parents, lived in a great neighborhood in surbubia and got pretty much everything I wanted.. Basically, I have lived an incredible life.…. And, to top if off, I played Division 1 college football. My mom was Catholic and Republican and my dad was Jewish and a Democrat. I have learned a lot about the world around me and why people are the way they are through my experiences…. Division 1 football is like a mini example of the world…. You have men of all different ethnic, financial and social backgrounds…. You really get to understand how to put differences aside to achieve a common goal. You really start to understand why people think differently then yourself. I am also a Millennial. But for some reason, unlike most of us Millennials, I have a passion for working hard and making this world a better place. Of course, I am not sure if my definition of a better place is the same as yours, but at least I’m going to give it a shot.
Like many of you, my thoughts and opinions have been influenced by the popular national media…. and recently I have started to believe that everyone in the popular media has completely lost their minds. So, I decided to create this blog based off my own moderate opinions to demonstrate to all these seemingly ignorant men and women that they are starting to sound like children who have gone completely mad.
I must also address everyone in this country with the “poor me” mentality…. Get over it! Everyone knows that things are not perfect in America! Whatever you have been doing by blaming others and not taking responsibility has obviously not been working. I bet you for every person blaming others for their own misfortune, I could find many who have been in an even worse situation and found a way to get their asses out of it. Bottom-line, Americans rise out of difficult situations themselves. It’s not everyone else’s fault, it yours. You are making the choices. The more you complain and bicker at others, you start to forget how YOU can do something to better YOUR own situation. Don’t come up to me and say, “it isn’t possible!” Because real Americans find possibility in everything! Real Americans can always succeed despite the obstacles around them.
Real Americans treasure freedom over everything else! And, by God, if you try to take freedom away from people?! All I can say is that you better be ready. Because Jason Franklin is here to stay and I will be exposing you poor excuses for Americans.
We have become a country of extremists. Fighting each other at every turn... Only thinking about ourselves.. Killing each other... We are displaying more hate for one another than love of each other… … it is about time for a change…. It is about time for Americans to start practicing what we preach…
So, Welcome to “Excuse My Moderation”! I hope America is ready for a change.
Okay, so like any training or education program, we are going to start with the basics of living a life of moderation. Some of you might be asking, “What does that mean?” It means, like your mother told you… don’t smoke TOO MUCH… Don’t drink too Much…… AND Don’t emotionally invest yourselves in the opinions of others TOO MUCH…. In other words, don’t be an extremist in any direction… And overall, just Don’t be “TOO MUCH!!”
