Why On Earth is This Tolerated?

I have written much about bullying, but feel compelled to address what is turning into a severe problem nation wide.  A growing number of elderly and disabled people are being attacked. Why? Because criminals view them as easy targets. I don’t want to hear about teenagers making mistakes when I’m reading about elderly people having to have plastic surgery because their facial injuries so severe.

I don’t want to hear about how people make mistakes. To deliberately target those who are least able to help themselves, to me, is a hate crime. I don’t care what race the perpetrator is. I don’t care what race the victim is. Our elderly and disabled deserve better treatment than what is being given by our justice system, so HERE is what I propose:

I propose that anyone found guilty of assaulting an elderly and/or person with a disability which results in serious bodily harm should have to serve a 25 year sentence, flat-time and no parole, in a federal correctional facility.

There. You have my Monday rant. I am so sick of reading these stories, and many of these victims get critically injured.  This is some serious stuff people.  I personally think that 25 years flat time in GP is plenty of time to rethink one’s actions in a case like this.

I have an aunt who was murdered–after being severely beaten. So if you think I’m over-reacting, just pray this doesn’t happen in your family. Why is this even tolerated in this country? That is all I’m saying about this crap.

I Simply Cannot Buy Rolling Stone Magazine…

Since this came out, I have not been able to even bring myself to purchase that magazine.

Since this came out, I have not been able to even bring myself to buy that magazine.

Once upon a time, there was a wonderful magazine that gave us articles about music and the music world–along with artists that were engaging in worthwhile pursuits at times. Then one day, someone decided to throw the very things that those of us who came to that magazine wanted to get away from, which includes depressing news and politics, in our faces.  However a person in charge of this magazine decided it would be appropriate to put a young man’s face on the cover who was the epitome of everything that is wrong in this country.  

“But what could possibly be wrong in this country?” some would think aloud.

“Complacency.” was the word that came to mind of others.

As a society, we have become far to complacent when it comes to what the media wants to subject us as an audience to.  If it were NEWS that would be one thing.  However in recent years, the media likes to bombard us with editorials. It gets really old. If I want someone’s opinion of what is going on in the world, I’ll simply ask them.  HOWEVER, when I want to know what is going on in this world, I only want the facts–and not their opinions of how they think these things should be or should not be.  Evidently the media no longer believes that we can make up our own minds on any issue,  so they try to tell us “how to think”…

We have also become far too complacent as a nation as to our own security.  Why do  I say that? Simple. Look around.  We’ve got teenagers going around targeting elderly people–especially if not of their own race, and yet no one DARES call that a hate crime IF the victim is white. IF the person who does it is white and the victim is black,  you can bet there will be serious jail time involved. This seriously leads me to question what truly is a hate crime if one group of  people who attack ANYONE due to race is not prosecuted while one person manages to get the collar… It is time to change that, people.  One form of racism does not justify another and if hate crime laws are not going to be equally prosecuted, they shouldn’t even be on the books. Justice is supposed to be blind–not subject to the whim of the US Attorney General or his boss. If one is really concerned about these young people getting hurt and killed for pulling such antics, then maybe the parents should step up to the plate and start monitoring who their kids are hanging out with again. Now back to my original topic…

Maybe IF this guy’s parents had done THAT much and kept their sons away from other radicals, they might not have ended up killing 4 people and wounding/maiming plenty of others. However, the mother isn’t too concerned about it given the clip below:

Did you notice where he told her, “Don’t say anything.”  Why would he say that? That statement is out-of-place unless one is hiding something…Nice try. Russia even knew about her fanaticism. I think we know where these two men went wrong and it lies within their own mother. Sorry. She raised them to be as they are/were. She is more upset that they actually got caught in their own game, and if they had not done it, they wouldn’t have hijacked that Chinese boy’s car afterward to get away.  He will get the best defense on American soil money can buy. What I want to know is, who will hear the victims’ cries for justice as the blood calls out from their graves?

And this magazine seems to want to paint an empathetic picture of what is wrong with this guy, or am I mistaken? Sorry…I don’t buy into it and will no longer read Rolling Stone.

Why Must this Nation Be Divided So?

Freedom…Does anyone truly understand what the word really means any longer?  I remember a day when people could speak their minds without being labeled and hated by their neighbors. They simply agreed to disagree and left it alone.  We now live in an age that seems to give rise to a sentiment that change of heart can be brought about by bullying in courts or in the educational field.  If there is one thing people need to realize is that all the legislation one puts on paper will not change the hearts of the oppressed.

When a group is oppressed by another group to the point to where speaking can lead to being severely penalized–whether speaking about beliefs or political philosophy, that is tyranny.  There is no freedom in granting rights for one group without extending the same rights to another group and this is especially true when it comes to freedom of speech and expression.

To prosecute one individual for a hate crime without prosecuting others equally under the statute is no better than the discrimination suffered by minorities in the 50’s and 60’s.  IT is still discrimination because such laws are only applied subjectively and enforced as such.

It is a sad day in our country when someone murders a Native American and no hate crime is prosecuted.  It is almost always downplayed in the legal system.  It is also a sad day in this country when a woman can be killed simply for being a woman, or a girl killed simply for being “too American” and yet no one sees these as the hate crimes they truly are.   If we are going to prosecute “hate crimes” in this country it needs to be made clear that if the motive for the murder has anything to do with race, gender, ethnicity, political affiliation, etc… then it should be equally prosecuted and punished under those same hate crime laws, otherwise the laws are worthless and will result (eventually) in chaos.  There have been murders of women of different ethnic backgrounds based on pure misogyny and yet EVEN when the perpetrator admits that was the motive, it is STILL downplayed in court.

Our country should not be basing legal decisions based on the cultures of other countries. That is not done when a citizen of this country is incarcerated or killed in other countries.  We are expected to know the laws and such and even in this country, ignorance of laws is not an excuse for breaking them so how is cultural background now being considered in such matters? It is ludicrous.

WE the people have one rule of law and that is based upon the Constitution of the United States and  courts should ONLY be operating under those laws–not those of another nation or entity.  We also have only ONE financial system and that is the ONLY one that should be allowed. To allow these practices to gain a foothold will result in this country being devoured from within. Remember the Texas Revolution? Remember the American Revolution? If not, I suggest that anyone unaware of what led to those should actually research what led to them.

Even with all of this there is new group of haters emerging in America and that hate based on the following things: Geographic location, which is regional bias and political haters on both left and right who are trying to force their agendas in such a way that if either side gains too much power, we could be living under a new type of apartheid system–if not a totalitarian regime in a few short decades. But no one seems to give a damn.  People are willing to conform to anyone that says what they want to hear. They will believe any false promise made, as long as they can believe it is not THEIR rights that will on the chopping block. They will feel secure as long as they are being spoon fed the load of crap that is keeping them from actually seeing that they are being used as well.

One can rest assured of one thing. Once they get what they want, they (those controlling the agenda) will go after supporters they didn’t desire to be in their little “clique” to begin with. This includes the artists, the dreamers, and those who towed the line until that line penalized them.  It all goes back to this:  Those who gain too much power are the enemies to America. There has to be a check and balance in this country to prevent that from happening–and that is slowly being eroded right before our eyes.

They are being eroded by those who, when they run out of opponents to “eat for lunch”, it is their own colleagues they will  harass, and when they either stop resisting or are silenced, they will then start on their own young. Such is the nature of this beast that is rising among Americans.  We must learn to work together. That beast is feeding off of, and encouraging the division.  It is time for citizens to sit down together and straighten this mess out.  The “divide and conquer” strategy is an old one and those who seek to divide us are doing so to keep us from working together.

WE cannot have “all or nothing”. That is not reality and people on both sides of the political fence need to sit down together and work on a new 3rd party manifesto in their own communities to address this issue and then fix this mess.  It may be what saves this nation because those in power now sure as hell won’t get the job done–that is, not without destroying those of us who know what it means to be  free and accept others as they are while allowing those who hate other Americans for various reasons to continue to unleash not only their verbal vitriol, but their violence toward each other as well in order to push their agendas upon each other…This is not the way to bring about change. It is a way to destroy our nation.

The only danger to free thinking Americans is the status-quo. This must change and our elected officials are failing the people–both parties.  They toss a crumb while they sit at the table of America like gluttons and devour the working people‘s earnings in their feasts and then try to justify this by saying it is to pay “the deficit” yet they exempt themselves from the very laws they pass upon us.  Is this the type of entity we want our children and grandchildren to be subject to? I don’t think so.

My ancestors learned long ago to never put any trust in the government. They break every treaty and they find a way to get around what they subject the rest of us to.  The sad thing is, the American forefathers and my ancestors would be very saddened to see what this nation has become today. Maybe we should take a lesson from Iceland.  Here is how they fixed their economy:

I think they should apply this here–to homeowners and to those who got duped in the student loan schemes, which has almost resulted in a new form of  “servitude”.
