With the recent passing of Mrs. Reagan, I thought back to times of enjoying ridiculing her “Just Say No” campaign and laughing at the brainless simplicity of her ‘solution’ to the complex issue that is the drug problem in America…economics, education, family breakdowns, poverty, criminal gangs, smuggling, cartels, stress, psychological issues etc etc.
As the years passed however, the words stuck, I think in everyone’s mind. As there have been times of temptation, unwittingly the words would pop into my head, and I summoned more will power. I now owe the dear lady my apology and thanks and yes, sometimes it really is just that simple and there is a certain wisdom in simplicity. Sometimes it does boil down to individual choices and not government actions. Sometimes the buck stops here.
So in her honor, I propose just saying no to something. As for me? I choose to just say no to Android/Google. In the interest of liberty and freedom of choice, thank you Nancy. Rest peacefully.#ichooseblackberry10
