IN THE BEGINNING
Welcome to my world and I hope you enjoy your stay. I write in my own patois which is a mixture of the sometimes obnoxious run-on-sentences of Brooklyn Street language being born and raised in NY. Moving along I picked up some “ Jerk Chicken” lingo from a couple years in Jamaica and finally moving to the Gulf Coast of Tampa Bay, FL, after a few side trips overseas courtesy of .GOV for the balance of my life.
The last chapter moving to the South was a slight cultural change for me, assimilation was not that difficult. At times over the past four decades I felt encased, thrown back in time to the great Civil war of the land and it seems some in the South haven’t accepted the fact the North had somewhat of a victory.
Wars, many wars eventually end, only prejudice and hate remains, sad to say still alive and well. But wars are costly. No one ever wins a war when you make the deductions for death, wounded, destruction, all that is lost. They talk about reconciliation but no one is sitting around the campfire, toasting marshmallows singing KumBaYa.
I write about people, both the good with the bad. Some are really good, some really bad. It includes topics on politics, race, religion, and a few references toward sex, which usually seem to be combined with the other topics. You won’t see an article on the Kardashians latest trend in pedicures, but a Congressman or Cleric fooling with children or cheating will get my attention in depth.
A DAY OF INFAMY
The people spoke regardless, intentionally or not. Now we will see if the man with promises can deliver. I suspect a large percentage of what he said he would do will not happen and in several cases will be highly dangerous. He won. The nation steps back and says, “How” since Hillary by a slight margin of over 3 million won the popular vote. It’s just our convoluted electoral system having another one of those brain damaging burps, OK in this case a massive earth shattering wet fart.
This was not an election of people, this was an election of anger using raw ego, repetition, responsive answers, lies and naive illiteracy against our government to win. The eight years of obstructionism, loss of jobs and a do nothing gridlocked government failed us all.
We placed in the WhiteHouse a severely ill-equipped self indulgent tyrant to handle the job with a real character neo-fascist abundance of sociological problems, and those that stand beside and with him are worse, yet we will call him Mr. President. He will sooner or later receive what he has sown.
History going back to the Third Reich, taught a few a lessons, one is that a man sometimes cannot be trusted. The ‘Night of the Knives’ took Hitlers closest allies, those who got him elected and he soon removed them. Leaders who are demagogues have a sense of paranoia about those surrounding them as to when they will turn on him. The first was Chris Christie’s baggage.
The Trump followers long on phrases and mostly short on usable talent, intelligence and brains are having a ball waiting for Donald to ride up to the white House on a beautiful white steed and claim the front door opening it and dispersing all these jobs and promises he made. He will be greeted by the lawns manager who will note at least we will not need fertilizer this year, we just got a huge shipment of it.
Who will suffer the most in this mess? Simple, those who had a good time attending reality rallies and cheering, waving their signs, attacking and jeering at the media after he raked them over the coals, beating up protesters, chanting “Lock her up” — and the world of media and the opposition brought a tennis racket to a baseball game.
Now what do we do? I really think no one had the expectations that he would win, they saw him as they're sounding board not their President. After all the things he will take away they haven’t figured out yet. Dawn will come and they will wake up.
They thought this was a game where they could attend like a football, a concert, a family gathering of like minded individuals, where they could holler and scream and wear attention getting profane T-shirts, jeer and slam the competition, take back the government without firing a shot and proving once and for all you don’t need college or education to run a country, we just need a business man. Having a good old time.
Alas for the Trump base, many are not truly Republican voters, the disasters he will bring on this country will fall more heavily on them than anyone else. The uneducated white males who elected him are the vulnerable ones, and they will not like what happens next.
He will make jobs for them, fixing roads, mending bridges, infrastructure, maintenance, the fast food industry, car washes, menial stuff, and the overseas jobs will not return. The companies are committed to overseas plants by contract, they have made deals with foreign countries and if he threatens them, they will ship overseas and not to us.
Caddilac and Buick, bastions of the US car market being built in China, will serve the US and China markets. Buick’s will be very popular in China. Thats was the plan from the beginning.
You might build a wall and you lock people out but you also lock yourself in and if he does that we will not be shipping either and lose trading partners. Not being part of the TPP, if the terms are not right you change them will be a disaster and turn the far east into the United States of China. The Philippines under Duarte seeked new allies in China, another slap in the face of a country which left so much blood on their shores.
The government is in Republican hands. The GOP, “ Good Old Prejudice” we’ll have to let them deal with him. We just have to sit back and spend the next four years watching him destroy the country and eliminating the middle class, build the wall, carry on the trade war with China, have massive deportations, and the rest of us Democrats, Independents and non-voters, just citizens can spend our days planning and preparing for the day we can take back the government.
To bring it to the surface took the outsider-in-chief applicant who has cost this country billions in dollars and untold patches of hate showing up every day and growing. Lying and cheating works, the GOP’s corrupt politics, and tactics in voter suppression, gerrymandering, boycotting Federal funds for party lines, and the usually dirty and abundant bribery by PACs and corporations stinks. And the GOP just looked on.
We have four years and plenty of time to plan and do it right this time. The scientists, psychiatrists and political gurus\oologists should start immediately. The country is already tired of his rhetoric, possibly his own following is too, but now he has to deliver or that same crew will turn on him and hopefully it will not be too late.
He is likely to become the most intensely disliked president ever and the damage he will do to our country — who knows? His supporters voted for change, and boy, are they going to get it.
THE ANGEL OF DEATH IS ALIVE
HATRED - מאַלעכ-אַמאָוועס
We have seen enough death, the Malekh-amo-ves is the Angel Of Death from the old testament. And with the horrific images and stories of Orlando, and other atrocities fresh in our minds, this is more than just the second amendment, magazines, semi-autos, this is more than radicalism, this is about a global situation totally out of control called hate.
And our politicians are apparently powerless because in the corporate-government coalition (sometimes called Fascism) Our elected officials can vote against hate, meaningless, they don’t, nor do they challenge the tools used. They have been bought and sold.
Orlando, Paris, Nice, Turkey and Belgium, and the people did what people do when it comes to tragedy. Prayer, for the dead, prayer for the wounded survivors and prayer for those living, we pray looking for the good side, hoping the angel will come down or astride a white horse and make things better.
But with the reoccurrence of these attacks here and abroad by convoluted individuals following a false GOD, who are we praying to. Words today are meaningless. It will not stop the next attack. We are at the point of having to do something, you see the Angel of Death, I used the Hebrew spelling and enunciation is “Malek amo-ves" and he doesn’t pay attention to your prayers. He works for the other team. To stop him takes action, words don’t work.
Does it mean don’t pray or think good thoughts? No, prayer and good thoughts are for our salvation, but rarely change things. We have to make things better. The real answer is taking action. We have to do something. This kind of hatred must stop. Lip service doesn’t count. And we are fighting a war on two fronts, the radicalism or the distortion of a religion, not the true beliefs of the more than one something billion believers, these are thugs, dissidents, maniacal losers having no merit in a civilized world.
The real question is the catalyst, what really brings this on. It is HATE, and it exists all throughout the world. We love but we also hate. The coin has two sides. It became front page, a hatred of Muslims, currently and nicely enhanced by a really sick bigoted individual running for the highest office in the land on the GOP ticket, the Presidency, and it is embarrassing for this country to allow that bigot the press time to promote that hatred.
Adding a hatred of gays promulgated by the party who refused to stop the verbal assault by the nominee and pandering to hardcore evangelicalisms, those parts of Christianity who are holier than thou. There’s a hatred of Blacks, Latinos, Transgendered, Queers, Bi-Sexuals, and even Birth Control, Agnostics and Atheists, Planned Parenthood serving women’s health because of the access to abortion. We live in a country shared by the good and the haters. In this election hate rhetoric has taken a tremendous leap forward led by T-RUMP.
“The LGBTQ community took the brunt of the hatred at Orlando, and paid a severe price. They know all about hate, they have been in a leadership role for their human rights including the fight against anti-Muslim bigotry”. And one person with the right weapon killed 49 and wounded, many severely with debilitating wounds 53 in all, 102 people minding their own business, enjoying their life style with the comfort of friends, bothering no one, were attacked.
Ask yourself, are you one of the haters? Are your actions and words creating violence. If it bothers you the way others lead their lives by custom or fear, what have you done about it. If it’s their customs and not harmful, learn about them. If they live in fear, find a way to help.
The problem I have is with people who cannot let the other life style live. As long as someone or group has a lifestyle other than yours, no one is forcing you to embrace it. Frankly, its none of your concern as long as it doesn’t enter your world uninvited. Believe me the other side might be a little reluctant to want to get to know you. Hatred feeds violence and creates divisions that is tearing this country apart.
Day after day I am affronted with statements or branding of people, their beliefs, and their physical or spiritual makeup, simply put, Its nothing but PREJUDICE and HATRED being used to cement some really stupid brain cells provided by today’s TV twenty-four seven media repeating the lies, corruption, cheating and scamming, basically or categorically, of the spinning in todays politics.
NO BULLSHIT/NO SMOKE ZONE
I may see things differently than you, and this site is all about viewpoint, my viewpoint, I hold nothing back and owe no one. I welcome discussion, I am involved every day in think tanks with intelligent people who seek solutions. But you better have a sense of humor, as our politicians do. The problem is they think everything is a joke.
This site is all about those in Politics and Religion, and the twisted lives some of them, thinking they are above the law, they bring forth, the sex part I might mention of them is their own cause, is not to titilate the reader but to expose the deviate quality of some of those in respected office.
I don’t argue with idiotic slogans, immoral rhetoric, not the BS taught on Fox Media by former druggie, 1/2 term college dropouts, hyped with a morose sense of values with no credentials, like Karl Rove, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and others who never made it through first years of college but earned a degree in trash radio. And I am not a fan of FOX “Faux” News as the media it represents is contrived. And I never liked Roger Ailes who turns out to be a creep of low moral standards.
I like to draw comparisons. I once explained Washington as a Poker Tournament. Lots of bluffs, eye contact, playing with someone else's money and losers. Thats till you get to the final table, the cards are on the line and then you show your real hand. Yup, in Washington, in the sleeve, thats where the two aces were hidden. There are six in a deck, aren't there?
My unique logo represents No Bullsh*t/No Smoke “ Emblification". Go chase that word in your Funk and Wagnalls. So lets get a few things out of the way because it may take a while to get used to my sense of humor. I have no problem with communication, I speak in a very "sardastic", language. If you grew up in Brooklyn, you are both sarcastic and slightly sadistic. It’s a new word, “sardastic". See the Jacobs Dictionary.
TRUTH SITES: SNOPES, POLITIFACT, WIKIPEDIA and others.
I rely heavily on some websites that uncover the distortions and lies, half-truths semi-truths, partial truths, and creative writing by those lightly equipped underachievers with white powdered brains and sensitivities. Yes, I may repeat a few lines from articles and information after I have sourced them out. Truth is truth. And I’m making a point probably shared by others.
Adding to this collection are the quotes and sometimes “ sick" thoughts of brain-farters, aka "entertainers", false assumptions, and conspiracists, those who come up with things lending comfort to other mentally deprived thinkers, truth or not. I call them gas hacks, always throwing fuel on the fire. Those requiring a checkout, my three favorites check out sites are Snopes.com, PolitiFact's and for General Information, I reference WIKIPEDIA, the online encyclopedia cross checked with multiple sources.
