At One Time She Was Blind

At one time she saw no color. She saw no male nor female. She was not concerned with popular opinion but with the administration for what was right, but something has happened to her in these later years of her life. She has become crippled and bent. She only moves via the strings are pulled by a force much greater than she is. That force is called division. 

Like the child in the middle of a divorce she is yanked one direction and then the other rather than allowed to have a voice for herself, that is applicable for all who go to her for guidance. They use law and personal philosophy to pit people against one another on each side of this tug-of-war. 

She weeps over the selective prosecution of one group, while others are allowed to escape through her grasp. She weeps that the mob mentality seems to prevail where there once resided two of her biggest allies, Law and Order.

She weeps that she, like a child, whose parents, who are “we the people” are now fighting among ourselves rather than realizing that there is a much larger problem looming within this chaos. The problem is those that are in power tend to abuse her and/or ignore her, creating more division among the masses. 

This will not be corrected until she is returned to her rightful role by men and women who refuse to be moved by contemporary thought rather than by the very document upon which our laws were founded. This will only happen when people unite together and refuse to see color, one’s sexual preference, religion, etc., as we are all Americans and should not be letting those in power divide us as we have allowed them to do. We should, in short, be ashamed of how we treated one another, and it would be the beginning of the return of justice if people stopped allowing this division to fester like a gigantic boil rather than work to heal the rift.

Educating Both Sides About ONE Issue Regarding the Death Penalty

Personally, I do not support capital punishment.  I also do not support lies being told to support an issue because it renders the entire issue to be fraudulent in the eyes of others.  I also have an aunt who was murdered, so I know both sides of the issue. If one is going to oppose capital punishment and go about protesting it publicly, it does no good to blame the governor of ANY state for an offender getting put to death. I am only going to use TX as the example here, but other states also have the same limitations because there was a day when the mob was buying off commutations for their family members who were incarcerated for murders.

First off, in the State of Texas, the governor only has the power to issue a ONE TIME 30 day stay per offender on death row. ONE time only! That’s it! He or she can recommend a sentence commutation but CANNOT order it.  That has to go through the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles. 98% of the time, they do not commute depending upon crime which got the offender sent to death row.  This is especially true if there are multiple victims of the same crime. They will not commute a sentence for such offenders.

Many other states have the same power structure in place to avoid the office of governor from becoming corrupted.  Now it is time to re-work the strategy about how to change things. It cannot be done by spreading lies and half-truths.  I strongly urge Hollywood writers to be careful when trying to make a change in any policy. Do your homework on every case. Look at what the juries saw/heard.  Make sure you stick close to the facts of the case even if there is a tendency to get too creative about holes in the story. Make sure the holes are addressed as HOLES!

However in order to even begin to change things, the very corrupt nature of the correctional system when it comes to addressing officer issues must change. One cannot clean  up a nation-wide issue until he/she starts with his/her own state.  There is a huge disparity between how male officers vs. female officers are treated by their employers about disciplinary issues, and I am quite confident that there is at least a 30 year-long paper trail to back that up–in Texas alone.  One will find the male will get a slap on the wrist 9 times out of 10 but the female will lose her job for the same offense.  If people want to talk about a “War on Women” there is where they should start.

…to be continued…

Lie About Who You Are and Where You Came From, Then You’ll Lie About Anything…

I am the first to admit that I am fully aware that from time to time, those seeking to get me to punch their name at the ballot box will omit a few facts or try to hide their voting positions on issues that I care about, but I dig that info up anyhow. That comes with political territory and that’s why people need to do their homework.

However when a person lies about who they are as a person and where they came from, that is a whole new ball of wax. THAT behavior tells me they will lie about ANYTHING and EVERYTHING. Both parties should take offense when any candidate does this. I know for a fact many people do. Nobody likes being lied to–especially when those lies make me think this person has gone through something like what I’ve been through.  How can anyone empathize with my own situations when they’ve never been in those situations? They cannot because they have not BEEN in those situations. It is that simple.

I’m really sick about hearing that there is a “war on women” in this country.  Why? If there is, then Wendy Davis sure is not a person that I would want to be on my side in it.  By now everyone has heard about how she lied about her past–particularly the part about her divorces/marriages and being a single parent.  It makes the entire women’s movement look even worse, and it hasn’t looked good in a few years since women cannot seem to unite as a whole on any single issue in this country.  A lack of honesty is hurting the women’s movement more than anything else. As a whole, we have not been honest about what the goals should be or with ourselves. That is why to this day, and for over a hundred + years, the women’s movement remains divided. Until women as a whole can unite behind common goals–the women’s movement will never unite again for any reason, I think.

To that end, the women’s movement must include all women–not just women on the left.  It also has to include both gay and heterosexual women.  Our numbers are too small over this divide as it is.  Until they reach across the table to those on the right, hear their concerns as well and unite behind some common goals then it is pointless to try to claim that we are making any progress in society. My advice would be to leave abortion rights up to 20 weeks if you want to get more women to listen to you though. Most conservative women do not want to hear about it at all, but will work with those who will at least leave it at 20 weeks barring certain medical conditions that might make it necessary–such as hemorrhaging or something severe enough that the mother could die–like complications from eclampsia and such…Yes, people it does happen.

Being the pro-choice darling will not help Ms. Davis in this election in any way because she totally misrepresented who she really is. First off, she was not, and never has been, a single parent. Secondly, she did not “struggle” through law school, her 2nd husband paid her way and she dumped him after he had made the last payment on it. He sold his entire 401K to pay for that school as well.  NO, had she not been able to get away with that one, I am quite confident she would continue in her path of marrying men with money and disposing of them when done.

The real single parent was Mr. Davis since she did not seek or gain custody of their child. In fact he cared for BOTH children while she was off at Harvard. No mother would abandon her kids for anything, but it seems that she thinks being in politics is a higher purpose for her of some sort.

I worked two jobs and went to school at night. At times I lived with family who helped raise my 3 sons, but I would never dream of leaving them for anything. Unlike Ms. Davis, who claims to have lived in a trailer, so what?! It actually turned out to be an apartment–not a trailer as she claimed.  At one time I lived in my vehicle for a bit. No…She hasn’t walked a single mile in my shoes…Sorry.

Where one stands politically is one thing, but to think that someone could so blatantly rearrange the facts of one’s own personal existence, and base one’s  message on a pattern of nothing but lies, and still be worthy of trust from tens of millions people that she would call constituents, is beyond naïve.  This is not a person who can represent women and/or the issues they face honestly–unless she has had an abortion herself, and I somehow doubt that. She tows the party line and that is the only reason she gets any attention. Hell, I’ve never had an abortion. I miscarried enough.  At least I am honest enough to admit that I haven’t had it done, nor would I. However, as I’ve said countless times, it is not MY job to do God’s job.

People have to make their own decisions and decide their own destiny and others should mind their own business about that. I do not have to live with decisions others make for themselves, they do. It is too bad that we do not have a “mind your own business law”.  This country needs one. However, one can rest assured the government would never obey such a law.

The last good democratic governor this state had was Ann Richards. I hate to break the news to you, Ms. Davis, but you are no Ann Richards. She was honest.  You are not. That is why you would never get my vote.

Preamble Then and Now…

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

That was then…This is NOW:

We the people of the former United States, have torn apart our once perfect union, have no justice, encourage domestic turmoil, failed to provide a common defense, forgotten what general welfare is (and it includes EDUCATION), and allowed the blessings of our liberty to be misused to the point where almost no prosperity remains. 

We have torn apart our once perfect union by allowing ourselves to become bigoted against one another for one excuse or another. If it is not due to race, it is due to regional bias, religion, sexual preference (or the fact that some will never agree to mind their own business from both sides of any issue). Americans, let people be who they are, marry who they want and address the coming problem…Here it is…

We have failed to establish justice because we have allowed those who were considered to be on the lunatic fringe when we were children to come into positions of power.  In doing so we have seen not only THIS administration but many in law enforcement personnel ignore the 4th Amendment.

Defense? The people have no defense.  I will support no candidate who does not pledge to pull our troops from the Middle East.

The general welfare…NO I AM NOT talking about social security here or any aid to the elderly disabled. THESE are the ones who truly need it…Yes, some people have been on welfare too long.  Part of “welfare” includes educating the youth. When teachers are forced to be social engineers, children will not get educated. It is time to change this.  It is not the job of the educator to mold my child into a government mouthpiece.  Period.  We must look to other models of education (such as Belgium’s) and remove the government (and especially the NEA) from making decisions about the curriculum for each state, as well as making decisions on educational policies for each state. There is no need for “national certification” because this is a power that should remain with the states.

To try to nationalize the curriculum is the same is trying to eradicate each state’s individual culture under the guise of expanding education and making it equal for all, when no matter how much they put into place, it never can be so. There are many here who know what it means to  secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity. However the government does not want a populace that knows what this means.  Hasn’t anyone else figured this out yet?

Oh I forgot…They aren’t taught the meaning of those precious words in the Constitution any longer. THAT would encourage critical thinking.  My god we have so squandered this great blessing of ours so much that nobody can see what is happening? It is time for citizens to take back the country. Run for local offices and move up from there. It is also time for the PEOPLE to lay differences aside.  Our freedom remaining in tact is what is important right now. PERIOD!

Santa Anna’s army was defeated at the Battle of San Jacinto in 18 minutes with an army that was tired, worn and determined.

All this country needs is one sweeping election to defeat anyone who is trying to usurp our rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.   We KNOW who they are yet we keep putting them all back in office, on our school boards and on our city councils–not to mention every other city, state or county post known to man.  Hint: BOTH major parties are loaded with these people.

This lady has been bent but she is not fully broken yet. We can still work together to keep this country together, but we have to stop letting the government keep us divided. They feed off of that. We have to learn to mind our own business instead of telling our neighbor how to live his/her life and stop telling other countries how to conduct their business–and to further the end of the latter, we shouldn’t be providing monetary aid to any country that abuses others via forced marriages at young ages, mutilation, and denial of basic human rights.  We should also limit humanitarian aid to such countries.  The last thing we should do to further our own end is to ban travel to these areas and close our embassies there. Most countries like this do not want the U.S. or any European country there anyway and if we would all agree to give them what they want by leaving them behind, they would eventually learn who their real enemies are.

Then again, so would we…All we have to do at this point is look in the mirror because we did this to ourselves as a nation.

Lies Involving Voting in TX

Many have seen this meme on Facebook. I can totally assure you that it is full of false information.

Many have seen this meme on Facebook. I can totally assure you that it is full of false information.

First off, if anyone is going to engage in creative writing involving the State of Texas, they need to do their homework to make sure they do not get caught with their pants down.  The Wendy Davis supporters who came up with this just got caught in their first flat-out lie and there will be many more to follow, I’m sure. I am going to give you a link to verify what I am about to tell you so I’ll post that first:

http://votetexas.gov/register-to-vote/need-id

If you look at provisions 6 & 7 NOWHERE is it mentioned that both marriage certificates and divorce documents must be presented in order to vote. The story about the judge is also false. These requirements were posted well before the election and she knew what they meant–if she bothered to read them like a responsible judge who keeps abreast of changes in law would.  It only took her 15 seconds to sign the affidavit–30 if she read the thing.  For her to say she almost “didn’t get to vote” was a fabrication on her part.

The biggest mistake these Democratic workers make when they come here to try to “turn this state blue” is that they truly believe that Texans do not keep up with politics and the news. Well here is the shocker, WE DO!  And contrary to what they report, many of us are quite well-educated and know how to think critically.

That being said I am going to make a prediction based on what I do know about the people of my state. Wendy Davis won’t win for TWO simple facts alone. She is NO Ann Richards and to a lot of us, Ann Richards was the last true old-school Democrat. We don’t care for Progressives.   The other reason she will not win is that the continuing barrage of lies being printed about my state via operatives of the Democratic Party hurt her more than help her. If they knew how to keep the rhetoric honest, she might have a snowball’s chance in hell of at least getting 28% of the vote. Kinky Friedman would have a better shot than she does, I think.

The New Mob…

Note: Most who know me know that politicians are the last people on Earth I would ever put my trust into. That is where this is coming from…

A mobster walks in to your business. “We can give you protection but you’ll need to pay us a certain fee for this protection.” “I don’t need or want what you have to offer. I can protect myself.”  you tell him. “You might want to reconsider that. Things can happen, yanno?”he says.

“I’ll take my chances.” you say to him.

Within two weeks he comes into your store, holds you at gun point and takes a third of your earnings for that day and tells you, “There is nothing you can do about this. You’ll pay it one way or another and we are coming once a pay period to collect. This is our neighborhood and we OWN the police.”

Then you are left struggling. “How can I pay the bills? The car payment? The vendors?” Your significant other is in tears and says, we should leave this place… What do you do? Leave or try to change it?

Think about this seriously for one moment.  It is your business and family being extorted…YES, EXTORTED. Now let us change-up the scenario a bit…

Let us look at our government officials.  They have taken upon themselves to pass into effect an extortion bill without the consent of the governed. By this I mean the Affordable Care Act.  The only ones who benefit from this are those who cannot or will not pay.  And those of us who obey the law, keep our jobs and DO pay are having to move out of our homes in West Texas. It is the working people like us–LIKE ME who have to live in an RV/Camper that my former boss owns because on what I make I cannot even rent an apartment. I could live in my car if something were to happen, but hopefully it won’t happen anytime soon.

Please don’t go into the supply vs. demand bullshit. There are two to three property management companies in town that handle ALL of the apartments here and they began gouging when they realized the boom was coming and it is happening EVERYWHERE in West Texas.  There are many families with $35K a year coming in that have to live in tents and storage rooms over this crap. Thanks to this, I can’t even save up the money to MOVE elsewhere. We are trapped in this area like slaves.  I actually think it was planned out to be this way too.

No American should have to live like this but this is our government at work in all of its infinite lack of wisdom. It is my opinion that they are trying to make everyone dependent upon it. They are creating the crisis to get us to cave into them. That is the last thing we should be doing. Why? They work for US. WE are not here to serve them and their lemmings and special interests. The two major parties are destroying the country and it is time we change direction totally. I will never vote for a candidate out of either major party again–unless they are Libertarian leaning. They lied to us all and failed us as a people.

And if we really wanted to send a strong message to them as a people, all everyone would have to do is pull together and pass a law that requires all citizens are to receive the same quality of care and help regardless of profession, sex, race, age, income etc with NO EXEMPTIONS–meaning our fearless government leaders (sarcasm intended) would have to be on the same program…  Pass a law like that and it  will over-ride this damned debacle they didn’t read in the first place. In fact, they should be fired and jailed for not reading it, subjecting US to it and EXEMPTING THEMSELVES from it.  NO OTHER COUNTRY does this to its people…

At least with a bill like I gave an example of, they CANNOT be exempt from it.  It would also make void direct IRS access to our bank accounts and leave decisions about medical care between doctor, patient and his/her family and not some idiot not qualified to practice medicine on the other end of a phone line.

When our founders wrote the Constitution, they did not intend to exempt themselves from the laws they passed. They did not set themselves up like a monarchy or oligarchy either. They did not believe in the principle of “diplomatic immunity” either. This country needs to change that as well.  We are the only country that allows this garbage to the best of my knowledge.

Anyway back to my original point. They are supposed to be working for US. Not passing laws over the will of the population and that is exactly what has happened. The only way to change this is to win elections locally first–right down to mayoral races and school board elections and work our way up from there. And I seriously hope that all of them who signed this into law get convicted of running the nation’s largest Ponzi scheme, which is exactly what this sham of a health care law is. By passing it, the government has made itself the new “mob”.

And before anyone starts bitching, I pay my share and always have. I grew up and had to work 2 jobs–sometimes 3 to survive. I should not have to do that again at my age and it really has me pissed off.  THAT is what both major parties have done for me. That is why I have never trusted politicians and never will–especially Dems and Repubs.   Don’t try to tell me the Dems are for the poor and working class either. After what they did to the unions, I know that is bullshit.  Don’t tell me the Repubs care about my values either.  If they did, the Sioux  would have been awarded the land stolen from them over time–when the descendants of the thieves that stole it, who are now on it (and controlling it) die off.

Either way, I am looking at 3rd party candidates for the most part in my state over this crap.

I Warned That This was Getting Political…

I usually refrain from politics. I am no politician. I detest politics because to me it is equal to corruption.  You have people vying for power, but they want that power and are negligent of the people who are subject to them.  In the name of progress, they destroy–lives and land. In the name of security they lie and take from the people.  In the name of “betterment for society” they take what is not rightfully theirs to take or preside over that which they have no business getting involved in.  This is what America has come to. No person knows how to mind their own business and let people be who they are, and I think that they do not care how many cultures and peoples they wipe out to make THEIR world a better place.   I could care less who one marries, but I do care that our children are the ones who pay the price for all the division this country has become embroiled in.

Yet nobody seems to know or care that this nation is imploding.  As long as  they get to watch their next NFL game, episode of “The Voice”, “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant“,  NCIS or whatever, they do not care that they are being trampled upon and laughed at by those in Washington D.C.

We are to blame for this.  For too long, America has sat back and let their next door neighbors run over them–with regard to the subjects of how to live their lives and how to raise their children.  Well if some of these people had stood up to these neighbors and raised their kids right, our prisons wouldn’t be over-crowded–and yet THIS is the crowd running the country?  It is time for America to take back its schools, its children, its local governments, state governments and then the Federal Government. It is time to clean house.

Now we can become involved in yet ANOTHER  Middle Eastern conflict.  I would like to know how it is that usually the White House circumvents Congress when given half a chance and now all of a sudden these “representatives of the people” are going to give this person free license to enable more blood of our precious sons and daughters to be shed?  These people say that those who agree with the Constitution cling to “guns and religion”…Well my question is this: “What do our enemies in the Middle East cling to”?  What? I can’t hear you.  However,  I think I just heard a pin drop in Washington D.C.

Great Britain took to the streets and stopped involvement in this and it is time the moms in America did the same thing. If the dads want to join in, that’s even better!  If this offends some of my friends, I make no apology for it. My son almost died and he is never going to be the same. I do NOT want to see any other person endure what my boy had to deal with. I have no desire to see the plethora of flag-draped coffins that would come out of this disaster either.  Not that D.C. gives a damn.  They really don’t care about us as a people. However maybe this is something we should look at:

http://www.theonion.com/articles/poll-majority-of-americans-approve-of-sending-cong,33752/

Perhaps if all members of Congress were required to go and live in a place like this for six weeks or 4 months they would think twice before getting our children, brothers, sisters, parents, etc…killed.  Look , we sign their paychecks. They are supposed to be working for us, but in the past 8 years, they haven’t. It is time to put them in their place or vote them out. They don’t care about you, me or anyone else. If they did they would be listening to the majority of people, who disagree with this administration, its policies and the way Congress is allowing itself to get stomped on at every turn because the Senate doesn’t give a damn either. Wake up, people! We and our children have been  at their disposal long enough!

How much longer do we have to pay for the mess this country has gotten itself into with the sweat of our brow and the blood of our sons and daughters?  Take a long pause and think about what I just asked.   I do know this much, I will support NO CANDIDATE from either party in the next round of elections if they support getting us into another war.  It is my tax money that enables them to live among the 1-2% people keep complaining about. Maybe we should take that back and the power over our bank accounts as well. You do know that they gained power over your bank account, right? Read the Affordable Care Act in its entirety and get back to me. They gained far too much power through it. Here is the link to it. WARNING: It is over 900 pages long so we should also be voting out the congressmen/women who voted for this WITHOUT reading it.

At least if you read it, you will KNOW what is in it which is more than I can say for the ones who passed this thing and thus betrayed us all.

http://www.kaiserhealthnews.org/final-health-reform-bill-patient-protection-and-affordable-care-act.aspx

In short, we have been betrayed by them and are slowly being enslaved. That is their real goal and I want better than that for my sons and my grandson…It is sad that a majority of our representatives in Congress now only represent their own interests and not the American people who put them into office.

 

I Am Taking a New Direction

I have decided to educate myself on women’s issues and go head to head with doctors and such that routinely prescribe and do hysterectomies for benign conditions. I am directly affected by this because a doctor told me (without doing ANY tests) that she was going to have to give me a hysterectomy. My response was, “I don’t think so. I’m not your guinea pig.” and I was not happy about “student doctors” observing it either.  Years ago that was the ONLY option available for women my age–the logic being that according to quacks who did this is, “Well at 50 you don’t need those organs anymore.”   This is a flat-out lie from the medical profession.

The truth is, once a hysterectomy is performed a woman’s risk for heart disease jumps to 70%.  Some women experience severe personality changes, including loss of maternal instinct and libido.  Forced menopause also causes issues and makes a woman more vulnerable because she can be more prone to fractures, prolapsed organs, increased incontinence (both urinary and bowel), etc…

These are risks I am not willing to take–especially since 15 doctors were arrested last month for routinely doing these to collect insurance money. The first doctor I went to is no exception. The nurses in the ER are no better. The thyroid and pituitary gland should ALWAYS be checked to see if there is some sort of imbalance.  A cyst can usually be taken care of with meds and minimal surgical procedures.

The archaic thinking that many of these doctors have needs to be strongly addressed. There are more options and more ways to deal with issues unique to the female anatomy.  Men, you should encourage your wives and significant others to seek alternatives because a hysterectomy can lead to a myriad of problems women are simply not informed about prior to the operation. I educated myself. I got informed.  I expect the same level of care and treatment that a 25-35 year old would get–and the same options. Anything else discriminates based on age.

IN fact, it should be required that hysterectomy should only be used as a last resort in ALL cases. where no cancer is involved.

For now that is all I have to say, but I will keep everyone posted on what I learn on my journey.

 

Yale’s War on Women…Part 2…

This post is only going to put forth some rather inflammatory questions. Why isn’t Yale facing the same scrutiny and penalty in the public eye  that Penn State had to face over that child sex abuse crap/Joe Paterno controversy?  Are the leaders at Yale saying it is quite alright to abuse women by only giving reprimands and downgrading rape on campus to a charge of “Non-Consensual Sex“?  Who are they to decide penalty for what IS still a crime in this country? Better yet, who came up with that policy? Whoever came up with it should be exposed publicly for being such an insensitive, uncaring excuse of a human being.

No campus, be it high school, college, technical institute or whatever has any right to re-write the laws of the state they were built in OR federal law. The last time I checked, rape was (and still is) a felony.  As far as I am concerned, they are aiding and abetting criminals with such policies. The Attorney General for that state should also be raising hell at this point! Why is there only silence?  If there is a rape, they should all be REQUIRED to call the police immediately as they are not qualified to investigate a crime on campus. I am not even going into how many missing women ended up dead because colleges don’t report them missing when they don’t show up for classes and their belongings are still in their dorm rooms either…Yes, this has happened. Read the news!

Get real people! No one is exempt from the law–ivy league or working Joe… They are certainly not above them. Any college campus be it Yale, Harvard, Columbia University or whatever should be REQUIRED to report these crimes against women to the police in order to keep their certification status as well. If they fail to do so, they should be put on probation and if this behavior continues, SHUT THEM DOWN.  Their female students deserve a lot more respect than what such policies afford.  I am sick of these people re-writing terms to “sweeten” them so that they are watered down to mean nothing.

Yet we watch and still do nothing.  NOTHING…What is wrong with us? Do we not see that these policies are designed to bully us and reduce us to chattel again?  Is this what we want for our future women in this country? I don’t think that for one minute, and I do not think that Elizabeth Cady Stanton or Susan B. Anthony would disagree on that point either. If one basic tenant of our rights as women gets eroded, they all will eventually be eroded.

This is where women’s rights groups (Hear that N.O.W.?) should be raising hell but they won’t. The women’s rights movement has been very fragmented and disjointed for many, many years and if the women cannot unite long enough to take care of this, that organization might as well call it a day in this country.  They keep complaining that it is the GOP trying to take all of our rights away, yet Yale has turned out a vast number of political leaders.  Many of those from bygone eras are doing somersaults in their graves right now, and I am very certain of that. Why complain about the GOP when our very complacency as a group has rendered our voices to be so ineffective?

We spend more time arguing over gay rights and abortion rights than anything–and that is what these clowns at YALE are counting on. Put it aside for now. This is a bigger battle in this war and it is much more important. Anyone who thinks otherwise has never faced a rapist.

How can we raise hell for our rights when we cannot even agree on what those rights are? Alice, are you listening?  It doesn’t matter if we are Democrat, Republican, gay or straight, pro-life or pro-choice–we have to stand toe to toe against such policies to protect our daughters and grand daughters. Doesn’t anyone hear what I am saying? Get off the PC bullshit AND off of the ultra-religious bandwagon so that we can actually get something done to benefit all of us for a change.  We need to show these so-called “leaders in education” what we think of such policies and let them know that we will not stand for them.

Nobody deserves to be raped or abused and any policy that runs contrary to that particular train of thought should and MUST be challenged both legally and via demonstrations. It is time to stop shining the seats with our butts and take action. This is the beginning of a huge threat to our very existence as women in a free country.  It starts with such idiotic policies at the educational level. They really think we don’t care and will say nothing. WE have to prove them wrong!  It is going to be up to us to keep our freedom because no one else is speaking for us. NO ONE. Not N.O.W…Not Concerned Women for America…NO ONE.  That fact in itself is tragic. Someone needs to take up the reigns and guide the chariot. Where is that person?  Come on, Alice…Wake up!  Think!

It starts at the educational level. It starts with raising hell at Yale…Can we not unite long enough to rein them in?  Here’s an oddity for you: Both Bushes, Bill Clinton, Gerald Ford, and William H Taft all graduated from Yale.  Being that Yale churned out 5 presidents, one would think their standards of behavior would be more strict–but HELL NO!  They went back to the Medieval Era long before the GOP had a chance to get that going full steam–which is something the Democrats accuse them of on a regular basis…Well, if we sit silently and do absolutely nothing, the ultra-right wing of the GOP won’t need our help now will they?

 

We Aren’t Born Free…Women, ‘Tis All An Illusion (or Bullshit)….

Warning: This post contains adult language. If you are an adult, then you’ll have to deal with it (mostly the word “bullshit”). Once again, I’ve gotten into an all time, funk–aka one of my bullshit moods. It is within this realm that anything might emit from my pen or keyboard–and this is not  (pause here)  “The Twilight Zone” so even I do go off into left field on this particular venting session, it is hopefully a lapse into a temporary case of posterior cranial rectumitis…If so, I’ll be back to my normal bright and bouncy self in a few days, hopping around like Tigger on steroids…Maybe it would sound like this–then again, maybe not… 😉  By the way both the sped up and slowed down versions are on here!

We begin in confinement.  We begin in a very small place, that adjusts with us as we grow.  We wait to break free,  It is warm, solitary and quiet there, and then we’re sent into another form of confinement–with strange voices, bright as hell lights and we freeze our ass off until we’re sent to our new quarters. No one understands us there either, so they learn to communicate with us by trial and error, and as we haven’t yet realized that we are as humans truly born astride a grave (as Beckett says), they eventually learn to interpret what certain cries mean and such… We are then confined in a home, sometimes full of love, sometimes not. That depends on those charged with protecting and guarding over us.  Some shield us from the fighting and such. Others take no thought at harming us by acting out their anger.  Others actually love and care for one another, so the confinement seems more like a safe, secure place with perks and such…That is, until we assert our own individuality. God forbid we do that!

We have to be carbon copies and if not, all the arrows become pointed at us:  “I didn’t raise you to be that way!”, “You should never have had that kid!”, or better yet, “I don’t care what your parents say, I’m all you’ve got and you’ll damned well do what I want you to do!”  That last line did not work very well with one of the matrons my dad brought home either. That was when the riot began.  It was more like a strike.  Sometimes we win, sometimes we lose and sometimes winning doesn’t seem worth it in the end.  In my case, I still question it.  However the fourteen year old I was, who had to endure much torture in that cell, didn’t–at least not until well after she was grown.

Then more of those “what if’s” crept in to antagonize her a bit… Those “what if’s” from our past are only pictures of former cells we were locked into, but if we have a place to escape to, even if for a little while, the cells we spend our lives in and out of are much more bearable. I for one, am glad that I am getting older. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I sure as hell don’t want to see what this world is going to be in the next 50 years.  Why? It will only get worse. People become more selfish with each passing generation and want to control everyone around them–thus making neighborhoods and such “mini-prisons” all in the name of what they hold to be “valuable” and it is not always their property, but they are really trying to force their way of life on other people. It really is to the point that where when someone says to me, “We are born free…” I strongly object to that.  We are not free when rules and such of one segment of society are forced upon the rest. I find it ironic that we have to fight to maintain our individuality as artists and such because someone says, “Oh…this is what is marketable.” OR “That is what is correct to say.”  That’s bullshit.  It is what they want to market to keep others from exercising critical thinking skills.

They have conformed and they want the audience to conform to their own way of thinking, and that is manipulation, which I also feel is bullshit. Quite frankly, this whole idea of the “world community/village” is bullshit.  There will always be leaders fighting and arguing over who will control this bitch of an orb, and if people are dumb enough to allow it, then it is their own fault when their children and grandchildren suffer for their lack of foresight.  It is always about what people and their leaders want HERE AND NOW and that is where the problem lies. This world is so riddled with problems and complications it cannot be corrected in OUR lifetime so what have we done? Passed the bullshit on to our children and grandchildren to deal with. Welcome to the world, where we aren’t born free…and probably never will be again. THAT is what the media fails to tell you all.  And hopefully tomorrow, I’ll be my bright and cheery self again and will be proven wrong, but it may take a week…Or two…or three. I just really got peeved at this article below and it set off a chain reaction in me…As a woman, this is only a reminder to what I feel is true, at least tonight…Here’s your “war on women“, Alice
