Alright…Want Better Pay? A Better Position? READ AND LEARN!

Even in an entry-level job, one can learn skills that will enable them to move up in their own field or they can transfer those skills to another industry once they get them. The key is watching, learning and asking questions. Those who advance take on challenges and other responsibilities. They become leaders. If you want better pay, become a leader. Lead by example and for God’s sake learn how to use some critical thinking skills.

Learning to make snap decisions in a tough situation is often critical and right or wrong, be an adult an accept responsibility for it. Don’t pass the buck to someone else. It’s a good way to lose your job. I can’t even begin to tell you about the times that even though it seemed to be to be something small, I’d call my bosses and say, “Hey I screwed up. This is what happened.” and I’d tell them everything. At least those things could be taken care of because they did turn out to be minor and they helped me to learn to fix those things on duty so I wouldn’t be calling them up with confessionals! However if you pass the buck to the new person, or try to hide it, you’re basically signing your own termination papers in the end. Once you bring your integrity into question, you’re toast. Don’t do it. Don’t even think about it. if you think something is wrong, ask the boss!

For those of you in this dilemma, I am going to suggest a good book for you to read that changed my life. It is a fiction book by Paulo Coelho, but it will really help you if you follow Santiago’s example…That book is called “The Alchemist”…It is for young people but there is so much wisdom packed into it…Check it out!

Red State…Blue State…How about “NONSENSE”?

Is there some reason why all Americans, who bleed red the last time I checked, let their politicians guide their every thought as of late? I’ve heard people in red states bash blue ones and vice-versa and have started blocking all of them when they do it on Facebook.   It is rubbish. It is another form of bigotry that has been labelled as regional bias. Why can’t people agree to disagree and let people live as they want to? I’ve heard one side say they want religion outlawed. That is stupidity. Even if it is outlawed people will practice their faith regardless and they will teach it to their children so you can scrap that idea now.

The other says they don’t want to allow same-sex marriage.  Then don’t do it.  If you don’t want an abortion–don’t have one. For those in the blue states who bitch about those who own guns…If you don’t want a gun, don’t buy one.  We as a nation have allowed ourselves to become somewhat “bullying” of  others who live in states below the 36th parallel. Well get over that garbage. We are all Americans. Again WE ALL BLEED RED.  We have enough enemies outside of this country that the last thing we need to do is to allow this country to implode from within but the real difference lies in who reads what laws are passed and who doesn’t as well as who is willing to give up some freedom just to have their medical bills paid or whatever.

I for one am NOT willing to give up the rights granted by the Constitution and I find it appalling that our military would not be able to keep bullets in their weapons in this country while the police in many areas are being given small arsenals.  Perhaps the government doesn’t want our soldiers to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United states and protect a bigots right to be a stupid ass bigot.  I’m sure this makes the Westboro Baptist Church very happy any way–not to mention some extremists in other countries.

I will also be the first to point out that voting for someone or against someone based on race, gender, etc…Is still based on the “–ism” words. Think about it.  Read what they stand for and if it is not something you would want your children and grandchildren to live under, either change your latitude or fire  your politicians in the elections.  GET OUT AND VOTE!

Other than that, leave each other alone. The political climate created by the politicians started all this crap and the anger SHOULD be directed at them. We are merely caught in the middle.

And while you are at it, this is something you MAY want to take into consideration being that it seems to predict what is going on…Yes, it’s George Carlin, it is funny and yes there is some bad language in it. However, he was right and Americans didn’t want to see it because they all live in their own little bubble.  We need to  stop this left vs. right crap and actually READ the laws put into place.  We certainly do not need to let this bias from some make this nation escalate into chaos. If they don’t want to work with us, then We the People need to VOTE to put a stop to this nonsense.

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

http://jezebel.com/yale-officially-declares-nonconsensual-sex-not-that-b-988475927 And a lot of our leaders have come from that University…That should really piss you off.

And I do like the one below!
