The Outside, Looking In.

Most people I know will spout off and snicker that they don’t give a crap what other people think of ’em. Course, it’s not true, cuz we all wanna be liked, and it’s painful when someone comes along and sets us straight to some truths about ourselves we don’t like.

This report is hard to read, in that it’s heartbreaking. There’s good stuff in it as well, but overall it lays bare the problems we face as a Nation. It’s worth reading, worth thinking about, and if it doesn’t piss you off, there’s just no hope.

Who Cares?

I care! You know who doesn’t? People that set in harsh judgment of those afflicted by mental health problems. I don’t buy into the fact that you’re compassionate, much less have the right to judge, if a kid sets in jail for four years waiting for a simple evaluation, and when it doesn’t come, you just throw the kid in prison cuz there’s no alternatives, and you’re OK with that. Fuck, an exceptional nation takes care of it’s own, and we are not doing that. In fact, what we are doing when it comes to those suffering from mental health disabilities is tossing ’em out the car window as we drive over a bridge. Think that’s harsh? Then you’ve never dealt with a loved one who suffers from the terror, sorrow and anguish.

I Would Do This

Man, there are those days I just want to get away from it all. Nature calls, and I want to commune. Get rid of the phone, the TV, the radio, sever the link to the real world. There’s something that makes my man blood boil about hunting my own food, building my own shelter and clubbing some woman over the head and dragging her back by her hair to my shack, making her mine. Then I remember, I can’t pound a nail, can’t shoot straight and I ain’t got the nerve to club a woman, then having to put up with her for whacking her.

Still, it’s a nice thought as I set around my firepit drinking my beer.

A Real Genius

When Nikola Tesla passed, his research was locked up and stashed away by our Government, and rightly so. Some of his work had to do with death rays, unlimited power sources, wireless energy, and remote control. Did I mention he invented the AC induction motor, and he lit up the 1893 worlds fair in glorious fashion. When I stumbled across his work back in the early eighties, I was mystified why this mans name wasn’t known along side Edisions. I’m glad recent history has begun to recognize his genius, and his contributions, cuz the guy was wild in what he believed possible.

You’re Doing What?

Seriously Mark, you’ve got your own ultra secret lab, headed by some chicka that once worked for super secret skunkwork programs, and they’re researching how to let my skin hear words? In any language? And all I thought you were doing was learning how to let me communicate with my PC with my gray matter.

OK, maybe some of this new tech shit is cooler than my worn old pair of X-Ray glasses.

I grew up in Liberia.

A small Nation that sets on the western coast of Africa. It’s capital was a thriving, bustling city of energy and diversity struggling toward modernity. There were parts of Monrovia that were comprised of tin shacks, along side concrete buildings. My concrete school sat in a neighborhood, where I would cross the dirt road after school and buy cheese and ground peanuts in a small tin shack of a store. As I grew older, I spent some precious evenings setting around an open fire, drinking beer in the middle of a village comprised of mud huts. Poor, economically depressed, not modern, underdeveloped, use what ever words you want, I will tell you that the people of Liberia gave me something that I cherish. That no matter what your environment is, you can still be a decent human being. You can still have dreams, you can still work toward something different, something better. Of all my time in Liberia, this is what I remember most. For my President to speak as he has, shows a fundamental lack of understanding and respect, and I am deeply offended, and embarrassed. Liberia was, and is, many things but it was never a sh*thole, and for a man that tosses the f-bomb more than most, I actually find it hard to use the presidents words in a sentence.

Stupid Vulgar People :2

Stupid is Trump paying 130,000 for a Non Disclosure pact without asking if she’s already spoken out about their affair. Vulgar is telling her ‘she reminds him of his daughter’, especially when you’ve already mentioned you’d date your daughter if she wasn’t your daughter.

Now, it isn’t my business to judge what goes on behind closed doors, so if a man cheats on his wife that just had their child, I’m not in a position to judge anyone. That said, if you’re stupid and vulgar about it, you get what’s coming to you.

You’re a class act, Mr. Trump, a real, world class ass.

Stupid Vulgar People :1

Stupid is posing a vulgar rant on a social account and not thinking there’s going to be ramifications.This persons name is Harley Barber, a student at University of Alabama, or was before her vulgarity went viral.

And I have no fucking words, except to say, this video will follow you the rest of your life. Bet you’re regretting it now!

Ain’t a lot of difference

between the parents who held their kids captiveand our Government. Both don’t give a shit about those whose welfare they are entrusted with, don’tcare about anything ‘cept what empowers them, both have an ideology of ‘my way or the highway’.

As a liberal, it’s easy to blame Trump, but this crap goes back a long way. The art of compromise, doing the peoples work, died way back when, and you and I, just point our fingers at our friends who have opposing views. Trump is the symptom of the disease, the disease is apathy on our part, corruption on theirs.
