It’s Time To Wake Up Sleepy Heads

Get ready to start hearing “war helps the economy” rhetoric and bullshit that has been rammed down out throats since the Civil War. War and military expansion is how they intend to “create new jobs” and enslave us to the oligarchy. As budget cuts will cause a massive hemorrhage to the job market and propagate unchecked inequality, we are about to see a crash that will make the Great Depression and the Great Recession look like a slight blip on the lives of people here and around the planet.

Having a Donald Trump in the White House was an engineering of money and evil, greedy minds that believe the ones with all the money-backed power will be declared the winners. Having all the money does no one any good if they are not alive to do anything with it.
These are events we have never experienced before and whether it is through nuclear and chemical holocaust or the awakening of the human race to act for peace and coexistence, it is a series of events that we should never see again.


If You Are Female, No Where Is Safe

There is a something about being a cab driver that people only know from “Cab Ride Confessions.” Apart from being one of the most dangerous jobs, it is a job where you hear all sorts of things from people you will never see again. More so than the bartender in a hotel. People pass through and impart stories, tell jokes, ask all sorts of questions that they wouldn’t normally ask of anyone else. Or they will give information just for the sake of giving it.

Case in point:

I was told once that if you are female, any time in your life between birth and burial (or cremation) you will be sexually abused in some manner, anywhere from groping to out and out rape. Yes, even at the morgue or funeral home, which has got to be the absolute top of the list of the worst things a person can do. To be honest, I don’t remember the conversation that lead to being told that. I only remember that the speaker was male. For what it’s worth, I do remember that the speaker was not creepy or threatening in any way; he was merely passing along information in a cautionary anecdote.

The TSA has been given the approval to make sexual assault a guarantee. And it will go unpunished.

Are you as disgusted as I am?

Please Don’t Shoot Me For Who I Am

I believe in warfare with words and water pistols. I believe in revolution of the mind and the collective conscience.

I was given a body, a mind, and a soul. I was given a spirit. I have the choice to change my body in any way I see fit. I choose not to beyond the superficial, for in altering my body, I alter the very essence of who I am, whether it be a tattoo or gender reassignment. I was not given a choice of mind. I can choose to expand it and I can choose to change it at will. I choose to change my soul by acknowledging the souls of others and their Creator given right to be who their spirit tells them to be. And I alone can choose how my spirit expresses itself. I was not given the choice of the color of my skin, acknowledging that no one has this ability, for it is the only part of who we are that is forever immutable. Skin color is merely a birthmark enveloping each and every being on two feet.

I have no degree yet I am educated. I have no vast expertise in anything, except breathing and reading; reading is the pathway to knowledge and expertise; breathing is the way to keep doing it. I have no job yet I am not lazy; if I am not working with my body, I am working with my mind. If not working with my mind, I am working with my spirit in prayer. To whom I pray is of no consequence to
anyone but myself and who others pray to is their own salvation.

I have not the proclivity, inclination, desire, nor the energy to burn the buildings of the communities in which I live. Nor do I have the yearning to see black, brown, tan, yellow, red, white, or blue lives extinguished from the earth. I carry no gun, no bomb. While I have vices, they remain tethered in self-controlled moderation. I recognize that others have difficulties in doing the same and do not vilify them. I have no need for birth control for myself but understand that others do. I believe that life is life as long as it breathes and is fully conscious of its being and has the will to continue. I am not a mathematician or scientist, yet I believe in the magic of numbers, for numbers cannot lie. Numbers are the basis for every science we know and everything around us. I believe in what I see in the world around me. Believing requires all of our senses and it is our souls which determine for us what is real and what is not.

I believe in burning the communities in which I live with the fires of change, progress, and humanity. I have the proclivity, inclination, desire, and energy to treat all beings as part of the whole, for with the loss of one, ripples of sorrow effect us all. I carry no weapons, save for my words, my art, and the knowledge that we can and should do better for each other and the planet we have been loaned. I believe each and every being is entitled to exist peacefully among others, without fear or worry of what tomorrow will bring. I believe that when we breathe our last breath, we are faced with the reality that it’s not about how much we had, but how much we have harmed. I believe in redemption.

I believe what I believe. You believe what you believe. They may not be the same and let us walk on, agreeing to disagree but respecting others rights to be who we are. And if there be war between us, let there be a water supply available.

You CANNOT Have It Both Ways

You can’t talk about empowering women one day then take away their right to decide the next.

You cannot force people to have children and do absolutely nothing to ensure their ability to care for them properly at the same time.

You cannot talk about creating jobs when you essentially put thousands out of work with budget cuts.

Yoda would say, “Both ways have you cannot.”
