Goodluck in HELL Trayvon Martin

14 Jul

HellIsn’t Hell where people go when they sucker punch people and slam their heads into a cement sidewalk over and over and over as that person cries out for help pleading for them to stop?

Isn’t Hell where people go who are Racist towards another group based on their skin color, when they “profile” and use words like “Cracker” to describe another race who has different color skin?

Isn’t Hell where people go who walk around in a dazed drugged stupor, thinking the laws of the land do not apply them?

Isn’t Hell where people go instead of going home, circle back and lay in waiting to attack another human being?

ObliviousFor those of you living under a rock these last 6 weeks and year for that matter, there has been a Criminal Trial happening in the US state of Florida. In a nut shell, the trial was about a 17 year old “youth” being shot by a Community Watch leader in a neighborhood residential townhouse complex. The evidence in the trial showed that the community watch leader thought the youth was acting strangely and “up to no good” due to a recent rash of burglaries in the same neighborhood. The community watch leader called his local police to come and investigate but in the meantime got out of his car to see where the youth was going. Not too long after, the youth circled back, confronted and attacked the community watch leader and was shot in the scuffle that followed. From all appearances it seems the youth was the aggressor of the attack.

Ignor the Facts 2No-one will ever know all the exact details of the encounter but we do know enough to come to a logical conclusion that the youth was the person mostly in fault. There were significant injuries to the community watch leaders back of his head where it appears it was being bashed into the cement sidewalk. No injuries, other than the bullet wound were found on the youth. Witnesses say they saw the youth on top of the smaller community watch leader. The jury decided after a 2 week trial that the community leader was NOT GUILTY.

Racism AnywayNow that you are up to speed, this brings us to the aftermath. I’d say that about 65% of the people in the US don’t understand the verdict. Which seems to be about the same % who voted for Obama coincidentally! They are calling for “Justice For Trayvon”. Those that are upset by the verdict don’t understand how an unarmed “child” can be killed. Many of those who are upset are blaming this on race. Claiming that Black people in the US don’t count and do not get “Justice”.

White Life ProtectedThere are several problems with the reaction to this event in US History. And I believe it is a culturally important historical event in the United States, in that it will effect people of the black race to feel “lesser”, “not counted”, “the system doesn’t protect us”, “a step backwards to equality”. Just for the perception that Justice was not served based solely on race.

The problem with the aftermath reaction is it’s mostly based on false facts of the case.

Gimini Cricket1.) The news media has been spun like puppets by civil rights activists from day one of this whole thing to further their civil rights agendas. The parents of the youth hired civil rights attorneys to represent them and everything out of their mouths has been biased and misleading of the real facts of what happened.

2.) The President (our first half black President), jumped on the bandwagon giving sympathy and justification to the false narrative being spewed by the news media being manipulated by the civil rights groups.

groupies3.) Many of those who show dismay about the Not Guilty verdict are basing their outrage mostly on being Politically Correct towards their “peers” versus actually knowing the facts of the case. It is “cool” to be outraged. It is the fashionable thing to say that you are for a black youth. It is Politically Correct to be for “children”. It is Politically Correct to be for a minority race and especially the black race. peer pressureIt is Politically Correct to be Politically Correct. I’d venture to say that a large portion of the “outraged” know more about what the Kardashians did on last weeks episode versus the facts of the case. Give them a few hours and what’s for lunch will their latest most important thing in life.

Media PuppetsWhat does this say about our society? It says that nothing has changed in the last thousand years and we live in a pasture of SHEEP! It says that we live in a society where Money and Power will always trump the truth. It says about our society that if there is an opportunity for “bad people” to twist the truth for their own advancement, they will do it! It says that most people in the US have their thoughts and life beliefs mostly formed by the media. And the media will always follow the money. If there is money to be made by exploiting a situation and tweaking the facts of what happened to match Political Correctness, the media will most certainly throw an innocent community watch leader in jail for the rest of his life without even batting an eyelash.

The TruthWhat proved out to be nothing more than a simple “Self-Defense” was overcharged by the Florida Prosecutors from the very beginning which play a large roll in the blame game of “what went wrong” with this whole thing. The local police did not want to charge the community watch leader due to lack of evidence that a crime was committed. They said it was self-defense and all the evidence in the case seem to agree with their initial findings. But all the Civil Rights groups had at that time worked the general public up into a frenzy by their false portrayal of the facts which were more than happily repeated by the media. For example, most people in the general public think the “youth” was a child. A 12 year old black child on his way home with skittles and a soda in his pocket. The real truth is he was a big kid of about 6’2″ tall in shoes, suspended from school for drug paraphernalia possession. When witnesses describe “the larger person on top”, they are in fact describing the “youth”. Most people in the public only see the 12 year old boy because those are the photos that the media shows in news reports and continue to show even today after the trial showed the youths real size as that of a large “man”.

Reality Green Road Sign Against Dramatic Sky, Clouds and Sunburst.Is this what our world has come too? That we base our emotions, and existence on a “smoke and mirrors” version of reality?

Are all of our lives based on what someone else force feeds to us? Are we so dependent on Television, and “Entertainment Media” that, IT becomes our “Big Brother” which tells us how to eat, how to choose our mates, what is socially acceptable, politically correct, and dictates to us most of what we think is real in life?

What a sad world we live in where we have been reduced to basing our own lives on what people with agendas feed to us. And we are only more than happy to lick the bowl when we are shoved it into our mouths, brains, hearts, and characters.

Herder Watching SheepI do not blame or have ill feelings towards the Sheep. This is the way it has been all through-out time and I suspect will continue through-out all time. People want to believe in Good. People want to believe in What’s Right. The problem is the “messenger” of the facts has lied to them.

This case is not about race.
Justice has been served and got it correct.

If outrage is due, it should be directed towards those who are feeding us false facts to further their own agenda’s, power, or profits.

Don’t be a Sheep!

Home!

13 Aug

Interesting concept…”home”! I for one have no “home”. I think. Or do I? Or do I not? I have been a traveler for so very long, a traveler visiting life with no “home”. A skin color, a “history”, a perceived connection to past events makes for a “home”. I don’t know. Or do I? I ask, I wonder, I feel. Awww, but is that it? “Home” is a feeling, not a place. A feeling brought on by feelings. Darn feelings. xoxo

Should Congressman Anthony Weiner’s Wife Get an Abortion?

11 Jun

If you have not been following this story, let me get you up to speed on the scandal.

United States Congressman Anthony Weiner “was” a rising star within the Democratic party. He is, (as of today anyway), a US Congressman with aspirations of running for Mayor of New York City.

Congressman Weiner, like many politicians has a Twitter account. Twitter is a social networking website where anyone can sign up and post little snippets of what they are doing, or their thoughts (called “Tweets”), and anyone can “follow” them and read their Tweets. Twitter is the newest and probably now the most used social networking website in the USA. Facebook was the most popular but I believe most of Facebook’s popularity is now outside the USA. I blogged about Twitter a few blogs ago if your not familiar with it.

Mr Weiner, apparently, and now confirmed, admitted a few days ago in a press conference to cheating on his wife, through Twitter, by communicating and sending pictures of himself naked and sexually aroused to several women.

When the scandal broke, Mr Weiner, at first denied the photos were of him. However as more and more photos came out, and more and more women starting coming forth saying he sent indecent photos of himself to them as well, he admitted the photos were in fact him and he did it.

And this is where the scandal becomes very sad and the topic of this blog. It has been revealed that Anthony Weiner’s wife is approximately 3 months pregnant with their first child.

The question I have is, should Anthony Weiner’s wife get an abortion?

It’s not too late. 3 month term pregnancy’s are performed all the time.

If she is to keep the pregnancy, what lays ahead for her and the child? Her husband and father of the child is a scumbag. The trust in the marriage is gone. What do you tell the child, the reason you and your father got a divorce is because your father sent lewd photos of himself sexually aroused to women he did not know. The child most certainly will be picked on, teased, bullied growing up because of their father. Growing up is hard enough without this “baggage” always as part of your identity!

Anthony Weiners wife is an innocent Victim! Does there have to be another innocent Victim brought into the world when a choice can be made now?

Is it not better for her to cut her losses, get an abortion, divorce Congressman Creepster, and start over? I say yes! I’d advise her to tell everyone that she had a miscarriage, and just have an abortion.

I don’t believe that “life” starts until a child is born. I believe in the “right to choose” for women. The embryo is just that, an embryo and not a person until it is born.

Is it not better, to make a decision now to avoid what is to come in the future?

Utopia Next Stop!

7 Feb

We all go through life searching for that special place where we fit in. This is a place where decisions come easily, people are happy to see you, life unfolds in a way in that no effort is required. This place is called Utopia.

I moved to my current “home” thinking it might be this magical place. I came with wide eyes, a spring in my step, and open arms and mind to everything and everyone that might cross my path. Well, it is not.

Living here has not been a train wreck by any means but it certainly hasn’t lived up to all the hopes either!

As the saying goes, ‘A Rolling Stone Shall Gather No Moss’. Well, I’ve lived a pretty interesting life thus far, as I have “rolled” from one adventure to another and maybe a little moss wouldn’t be so bad. The difficult thing about moss is there are so many kinds. A guy has to be careful and take his time choosing the right moss that is best suited to grow on him.

I know Utopia exists. I know there is a moss patch that is all that I dream it will be. I know kindness, friendship, love, exists on my awaiting moss patch. I know I will find it. Perhaps it is time to set aside all the fears of what I potentially have to lose, and grasp firmly all that I have to offer and can be. There comes a time in everyone’s life when they spread their wings and fly.

Being your future, being all that you dream you can be, being “YOU” is Utopia. It is time for me to be me! Time to roll!

Is the “One” we choose to be with “Meant to Be”?

29 Nov

I wonder if “the one” we end up with in each of our individual seeking’s for love is a choice or “meant to be” and will happen no matter what.

I read about people who tell stories of “love at first site” and they just knew that the person in front of them was to be the one they would spend the rest of their life with. How did they know? Was it that they simply were attracted to this person and they have dozens of others…..”mis-fires”….caucuses…. on the highway of past attractions.

Is it just that the one we end up with turned out to be the one so it is easy to say, “I knew at first site”. How many other “at first site’s” did these people also have?

Today, I met a girl who could possibly be “the one”. Incredibly grace, elegance, and on the surface all the things a King would seek for his Queen. I even told her about this blog, so to a certain extent does that mean I’m writing this to her on some deep sub-conscious level? Does this mean that I think she is the one, or a candidate? Where does the official line get drawn and distinguished between our natural “hope for good things” and some sort of god guided “meant to be” scenario?

If you were to drive on the highway of the past for any of us, of all the possible “the one’s” you’d need a tank to drive over all the dust remains to make the highway passable on the road to today. I think this is true for all of us. What is the difference between all those “the ones” and any of today’s “the ones”?

I think that in our journey in life people are always optimistic towards the future. It is in our genes to expect a plentiful harvest, a positive outcome, and reaching our dreams and goals. I think this also rings true for finding love.

I’d like to think that “meant to be” does exist. I’d like to believe that every person has another person they are born to find and travel through life together with. But, why is it not this way for other mammals and animals created by god? Why is it that we should believe that the human experience is special to none other? How do you explain divorce when if asked, most of those getting divorced thought they had found “the one” in the beginning too?

Is it possible that our desire as a society and individuals to be “special” because we exist at the top of the food chain and are arguably the smartest animal in the universe figure into our need for those we choose to “give ourselves too” to be somehow chosen by a higher power? Is this especially heightened to Americans as the current dominant super power of all countries and feeling entitled to being special is of less an importance for other cultures and countries?

Well, as someone who still hopes someday to see Santa Claus climbing down the chimney, the Tooth Fairy leaving the money under my future children pillows when they lose a tooth, the Easter Bunny, Mother Nature, The Great Pumpkin, Unicorns, and Angel’s granting wishes every time a bell is heard, I will also continue to believe that there is just one person out there for each of us and if it is meant to be, then it will be.

And until I meet that person, the road bumps created by the ones that did not make the cut make the ride an interesting one!
