WTF just happened?

There is a man in the White House who should NEVER have been voted president. There is a resider in the highest office of the USA who takes children away from their parents, just because they’ve shown up at the US/Mexico border as emigres.

The thought that this country’s citizens were so afraid of having a WOMAN president, that it put an unqualified, poorly educated person in that office.

This country is so AFRAID of a strong woman president, that it has cut its’ own throat in the global arena so she would not get there.

The release of all that DETRIMENTAL information about HRC was done deliberately. To cost her the election PERIOD.

The current White House tenant had a lot of help to accomplish this theft. Ultimately, after all the investigations, testimony, reports, tweets, news articles “fake”, mainstream and real media, the TV talking heads, the news at 11 and fecklessness, it’s going to come out that this country was so afraid of a STRONG woman finally running the country, that they have all perjured, fabricated, slandered, libeled and STOLE, to keep that from happening. The people who voted for this squatter, bought the lies hook, line and stinks to high heaven.

It doesn’t matter how long it takes Mueller and team to get to the bottom of this travesty, as long as they get to the bottom of it…

This is a monumental crime that has been perpetrated upon the people of the United States and anything that happens while this investigation is ongoing is a smoke screen from this truth.

The elephant in the room is the fact that with all of the strides society has made, this country has unequivically stated it is NOT ready for a woman head of the country.

We can run dynasties, families, companies, homes, restaurants, tanks, planes, you name it, but not the United States of America.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it…

the Golden Rule no longer applies

The problem we have today is there is a “slippage” in morals, in being respectful, courteous, kind, polite, honest and concerned for fellow man. We look around at the lack, not so much of religion, but of civility. That thing that makes us human, the ability to empathize with someone, not cognizant of a person’s color, gender, nationality. We have lost the concept of this country that is being welcoming of all people in spite of the way this country began.

 

Religion was a great controller of people without putting much effort into it. Hire a preacher, get a stack of bibles, pass them out and then guide and direct people to those passages that made them behave in a way that was “acceptable to GOD”. It’s actually society working to control the masses. Religion, church and spirituality are mutually exclusive (and that’s a story for another day).

 

Religion slipping away is one thing. Morals slipping away is something else entirely. The internet may be largely to blame for this slippage. It’s become the place to go to say and do things one cannot do out in the open. People form opinions about themselves and others, because there is no self-editing. You can say what you want, become someone else and make up what ever story you like that fits the online persona. The Golden Rule no longer applies.

 

The problem with that, what you say and do unfiltered online, seeps into the common speech, in the loss of being courteous. I’d bet money that the old lady in the restaurant who disrespected the pregnant soldier had been in a chat room or on a website that told her that black people (in the 21st century!) are animals that need to be neutered and corralled so they can’t breed, infest or infect the many good (white) people who are struggling to keep a roof over their heads, food on their tables and clothes on their children’s backs.

 

There are way too many stories online, on TV and in magazines and newspapers daily talking about a black person was shot, arrested, jailed or in some manner persecuted just because they are black. The ultimate conspiracy is the fact that black men make up the majority of the nation’s prison population. I guess that’s one way to make sure another MLK or Malcolm won’t crawl out of the woodwork

 

People of color are daily subjected to overt and covert racism, bigotry, bias, insults, the slings and arrows of outrageous persecution, psychological trauma, mental anguish, overt and covert taunts; the likes of which haven’t been seen since the days when lynching was the norm to keep the “colored” population “in check”.

 

That was outlawed. So now, instead of a rope, people use words, laws, rules that are designed to slowly bleed away the rights of brown-skinned people, the world over. People have become so comfortable with this once again overt racism, they even managed to put a man in an office who should never have been put in there in the first place. Trump is so unfit to be president, I think if Sigmund Freud were alive, he’d be scratching his head. Classic narcissistic tendencies, a touch megalomanical, manipulative, sociopath who surrounds himself with syncophants and enablers, including his children who have been in thrall since birth.

 

I’ve noticed that when people think you’re actually happy, comfortable or peaceful, they make it their business to cause some sort of psychological trauma to disrupt those conditions. They’re unhappy, uncomfortable and not peaceful, so they want to you be that way also. My ex-husband called that “crab in the barrel syndrome”.

 

It’s a situation where you’re somewhere and for some odd reason, people think it’s ok to either victimize you or be rude and to them it’s entertainment of some kind. Somehow you’re being punished for being somewhere you’re not wanted  or because you’re perceived as “different”.

 

I’m living in a city where people don’t invite different people into their circles so that what you have is a stagnated environment where nothing improves or changes because no one wants to invite new ideas or new ways or new concepts into their lifestyle or system or group of friends.

They avoid this by assuming that because a person looks a certain way, they can’t be anything other than what someone else says you are, not what you say you are. If someone tries to present themselves as other than what everybody else does, that person becomes “crazy” “funny-acting”  or some other label/handle that misses the mark entirely. People here need to start discarding assumptions about someone that are based on the way a person looks or what stupid high school someone went to. Looks have absolutely nothing to do with a person’s education, life experiences, abilities, etc. You can’t f**ing categorize anybody  by something so trivial as high school and who someone is as an adult has nothing to do with high school.  Perhaps a personality was formed during high school, but if you keep living, you hopefully get many years away from that event for it to make a difference in the big picture.

There must be a way to tear down those psychological barriers that only serve to hold everyone back from their true potential.

 

 


Victimization culture

September 17, 2017

We’re fighting the wrong battle from the wrong end. This is an environment where people who look a certain way are given opportunities and people who don’t look a certain way are denied opportunities because they are seen as not deserving of the same opportunities given to certain other people (aka white privilege).

Here in STL there was a man living with a gun to his head  that may have been because of these circumstances. He may have been forced into thug life so he could provide for the people he loved in the only way he was allowed to do. It may have been his environment, his family’s environment; it may have been his education or the lack of it. He may have been forced to live in a place similar to the one over on Chouteau @ Tucker, where the vermin are ruling and not the humans. If a restaurant had that problem, the city would shut it down and a whole lot of folks would be paying a whole lot of fines.

Yep, he was a drug dealer, living with a gun to his head, and we need to be addressing the whys of that condition, not the end of that condition. How’d he get to that point in the first place? Was he trying to save his mother and siblings from more victimization? Will his offspring (cousins, nieces, nephews) end up there also?

We live in a victimization culture. I thought originally that it was only against brown-skinned women, but it’s actually across all races and not just against women.

Can’t figure out if it’s because of rap music, violent video games, no religious or moral upbringing and all of which is embedded in culture, which no one recognizes anymore.

We have a president who is a victimizer. So, it stands to reason that the people who voted for him either allow it to happen or participate in the activity.

But I digress.

We live in a culture where (most) men have been exposed to and internalized behavior that in the 1970s, would have caused a backlash so severe as to shut down a whole lot of shit and not just several streets in the Delmar Loop or the streets around the mayor’s house in the Central West End.

This is not the case today because any one is capable of victimizing someone else and then stand there acting like nothing is happening and the person complaining about it must be crazy.

It’s a victimization culture when a man asked his opinion on live TV he comes up with “I believe in the 1st Amendment and I believe in boobs. They’re the only things that haven’t let me down.” The female newscaster shut the whole thing down and good for her.

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/third-rail/episodes/episode-2-is-america-becoming-more-or-less-racist/

It’s also a culture of hate speech (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hate_speech) that you may not know is being fought regularly by the US Supreme Court (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hate_speech#United_States).  Hate speech is protected as long as it doesn’t endanger someone’s life.

The problem here is that victimization and hate speech have become the norm in our society as moral behavior and religious restrictions are shrugged off, these activities/behaviors/concepts are becoming more and more embedded in the US culture and even the entire world.

There are countries that mutilate girls’ genitalia. There are countries that stone, beat or gang-rape women who are out after a certain time at night.  There are countries that conscript/kidnap young girls to stop their education and force them into prostitution.

I would not walk down the street in my downtown neighborhood after 8 pm without carrying a taser or pepper spray (and I live in a nice neighborhood!).

Pick a city, any city and the culture is now allowing police officers to shoot someone even if they are running away and there are no consequences.

The officer in STL who was acquitted of murder charges for killing a drug dealer after a high speed chase. Even though he only made one recorded comment about killing the guy, the prosecution, according to the judge, “did not prove beyond a reasonable doubt there was premeditation in the shooting.” The funny thing is, that human being was very likely deprived of his “due process under law”.

(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fourteenth_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution). But no one has addressed that and double jeopardy applies here.

The horrible thing about this,the wrong human hasn’t died yet. AIDS wasn’t a “problem” until Rock Hudson died from it.  Then everybody got all excited. At some point in time, some cop somewhere is going to shoot the wrong person and then those constitutional amendments and deprivation of due process of law will get a workout.

The excuse all the officers are using “I was in fear of my life”. This is becoming rote and trite because someone somewhere taught them this in a class and very likely included the warning “sound sincere” when you utter the phrase and they’ll believe it.

This brings me back to the “victimization culture”. In this culture, people don’t call you “nigger” to your face. They think it and it comes out in their behavior. Think about that for a second.  The internet, because of  relative anonymity and “safety” of the computer, allows people to say, post, film, write, anything they please, with no hint of repercussion. Now, there need to be rules applied to internet usage because people don’t seem to be able to self-censure themselves any more and now it’s leaching into what used to be polite society.

In this cop’s case, he spoke words, which may have included thoughts (nigger) that we can’t prove (unless he slips and says it in the future) and then proceeded to act upon those words and possible thoughts. The “thoughts” are inadmissible in court. Dash and body cams can’t record thoughts. And, since the officer knows he’s being recorded, he’s going to “act” to that recording to evade “capturing” his real intent.

We have a president who does things like this, http://www.cnn.com/2017/09/17/politics/trump-tweet-clinton/index.html which proves he is the titular head of this victimization culture. Bet money there’ll be a retraction stating “he didn’t send the tweet, a misguided aide did”. I think this tweet actually does fall under unprotected hate speech, because it specifically targets a particular person.

This tweet comes after everyone dumped on Kathy Griffin for her photo while holding the “head” of the current president. She had gigs cancelled left and right.  She got trashed on TV, internet, in magazines and newspapers.

Maybe it’s time for the US to move toward an impeachment culture and get this victimizer out of office.
