I'm Ok, but Maybe You Are Not

There was a book written in the late 60’s I believe called “I’m Ok, You’re Ok” Seemed like a nice idea at the time but now we see it as total bullshit. None of us can be given carte blanc status of being Ok. 

There are a whole crapload of people, just in the USA who are not Ok. The focus here though is this insane push by popular culture to label everyone as Ok. As the intelligent among us know, there are a whole bunch of humans who are Not Ok. We do society a supreme disservice by suggesting everyone Is Ok. Especially young people but older folks too. The college dipsticks refuse to insult anyone.

If someone is a whack job, a dipstick, a bully, a practicing retard, a democrat, an animal abuser, someone who damages other people’s property, a guy who grows his nose hair into his mustache, someone who doesn’t brush their teeth but twice a year, someone who has their hair cut by Genghis Kahn, someone who can’t sing but does anyway, any of the staunch retard liberals who refuse to seek medical help, people who can’t figure out what sex they are, people who have sex with animals, males who think they are the pinnacle of existence and every living being only exists to service Them (moslem vermin, some Mormans), people who go to the public toilets and don’t wash their hands afterwards, The Vast Majority of politicians, The UN in its entirety, The vast majority of other countries not named The United States of America, anyone who doesn’t regard barry soetero as an enemy of the United States and civilization itself, Good God – anyone who even thinks hilrod clinton is even human, all Democrats, Most union members, child abusers, people who advertise their products only on TV, QVC in its entirety. people who go out in public looking like a citizen of an alien world, people who go ape-shit with the tattoos and/or piercings, people who refuse to be educated, perverts of any kind, and anyone who abuses someone else in any way, then they need to be told that their activities or appearance is Not Acceptable. 

This is the best thing you could do for such a person. If they go to WalMart with half of their ass on display or walk down the street in a clown suit. (things I have personally witnessed) the very best thing you can tell these people is “Dude/Dudette, You are Not Ok”. Realize most of these people are trying to find Gainful Employment, and Love just like everyone else. The most wonderful thing you can do for them is to try to put them on a path for them to achieve their goals And fit into society at large. Understand many of these people Never had any guidance At All. You are doing them a disservice by telling them they are just as Ok as You are. 

Speak Your Mind, even if you are a kindergarten minded University Student.

  1. Another book from the way back when was Dr. Spock's guide to rearing children. The book advocated a "permissive" approach to raising children which has directly led to the current generation of ignorant whiners. They are definitely "not ok."

    1. That book was the big thing when my mother was having babies (1940's). She read it and promptly threw it in the waste basket declaring it a bunch of crap and utterly ludicrous. My mom was very, very smart.

      The whiners you see today are the product of parents who were raised the "Spock way." Spock apologized before he died and admitted he got it all wrong.

    2. If any further proof is needed of Dr. Spock's aggressively pernicious mentality, Benjamin Spock's son committed suicide.

    3. Euripides, I'd say you're on point with regard to where most of these people come from.

  2. Okay, Kid - a righteous rant for a Monday morning.

    I well remember buying into that book's declaration of okay-ness. It was about the time I was bemoaning all the "guilt" the Catholic Church had imbued in me. Full circle came rather quickly. Guilt is good. It's God's way of telling you you're a complete and utter asshole and you need to make amends and straighten up and fly right.

    I told a priest once that whenever I did something snarky, almost instantly something not so good would happen to me. I recognized this as a thump on the head from God. He said I was very lucky to recognize it for what it was since most people don't.

    1. Adrienne, Thank you and I agree. My nose has been hit with a rolled up newspaper several times from above.

  3. I’ve never subscribed to all that touchy-feely crap. If you want to have good self-esteem, try this: accomplish something. Having graduated from the world’s toughest screening program at Parris Island in the early 1960s, I never had a self-esteem problem. Each and every day I spent in service to my country reaffirmed that I could take on any task. I never once failed to complete my mission. Yes, there were set backs, and there were some really bad days along the way, but my confidence knowing that I could achieve success enabled me to get through it. We still see this today, but with less than one percent of the American people who give a crap about anyone or anything other than themselves, we have evolved into a nation of wussies. The sharpest example of this is sitting in the White House. On NPR recently, Barry Eunuch attributed his gross failures across the spectrum of presidential responsibility to the fact that he is the first African-American serving as president. I found this telling ... because first of all, an African-American is a divided American, and second ... Barry was elected by white liberals. The same morons who are lining up behind Hillary Liar.

    1. Mustang, I'm glad I don't listen to NPR then :) So, affirmative action doesn't really work then.
      I agree all of it, especially that accomplishments are the only pathway to happiness and self-esteem.
      By the way, the people I saw in clown suits (big puffy onsie things with multi-colored dots were 2 men, and two women, each set pushing a baby carriage. Imagine what those kids are going to end up as.

  4. Gad! Nothing to add from ME, except congratulations on a terrific, and TRUE, post and a bunch of super commenters.
    "........a practicing retard, a democrat, an animal abuser,.." You do make me laugh!

  5. You tell 'em Kid. My 14 year old daughter has been fed this crap that judging people is mean. I tried to reason with her that judging people is what keeps civilization from falling apart. Making the calls between right and wrong is the glue that holds our society together.

    She still doesn't get it, but eventually she will. And you should add Democrats to your list of people that are most definitely not OK.

    1. Thanks Fredd. Democrats are most certainly listed specifically and in other ways as well. Good luck with your daughter. She has time yet.

  6. Holy guacamole, Kid. I know I am OK. I thought you were OK, but maybe your have been traumatized by too many trips to Walmart. I once knew a guy that met his wife at the Walmart Pharmacy waiting line. After they got married, he was always complaining about her illnesses that the doctors never could seem to diagnose. So, if you want to be OK, just stay away from the Walmart Pharmacy line.

    I remember the OK days, and I always thought it meant that I am OK, you are Ok, so chill, Dude, and leave me alone. I never read the book. It sounded too simplistic to be intelligent or important.

    At any rate, I know I am OK as I watch the news wearing my rose colored sun glasses.

    Good post.

  7. Bob, You Are Ok. Thanks. I never read the book either but I knew what it was about.

    My main point was "What is accepted by the current generation is embraced by the next". ;-) I sure don't see how any of this turns out good, even without homicidal maniacs..

  8. The best way to get through life:

    I'm OK, but you're an asshole, –––– until proven otherwise.

    1. FT, I understand the logic there. Oddly, I am still willing to think someone is Ok until proven otherwise. Trust but verify kinda thing. Hope that's Ok.

    2. I was just kidding. Even after everything that has happened to us I am still not that much of a cynic, but I admit it's tempting.

      Merry Christmas, Kid!

  11. I'm fairly sure that I'm not OK, but I don't suffer from any of your listed ailments. But I'm feeling much better now. Thanks, Kid, for keeping me on the right path!

  13. PS - A friend asked why I mentioned Mormons. Well I said Some Mormons. I've met some fine Mormons, but I have also met some that regarded me as sub-human. That whole "The Mormons are the only chosen people" crap. I stand by the inclusion based on my experiences.
