Many years ago I learned that Men who beat thei’r Women were spineless Cowards who wouldn’t pick a fight with another Man. The reason they wouldn’t pick a fight with a Man is because they fear getting thei’r Ass kicked. Several Months ago I proved that Theory. In the Hallway of the Courthouse where I work, a Man arguing with his Woman suddenly hoisted her over his Head. He was getting ready to Body Slam her to the hard Marble Floor. I moved within Three feet of him, not saying a word to him, only staring at him Intensely, he put her down and walked away. If he was big and Bad as he thought himself to be he would have asked me what are you looking at. He also would have told me to mind your own Business.
Years ago on a Construction Site I broke up a fight that could have ended up with Murder. The aggressor told me to mind my Business or I would be next. That didn’t stop me from getting down on the ground and separating them. Back then I was known as the Hammer. I carried a Hammer on my Hip not just for pounding Nails. Cowardly Jackals who attacked defenceless People are nothing short of being Terrorists. If you are a Man with a Gun and you go shooting at unarmed People whether Men or Women you are Chicken Shit. Pretty much like a Woman Beater, you know that there won’t be any Bullets coming back, whizzing by your Head so you feel empowered and Brave. I have always been anti Guns since Fourteen years old.
One Day I beat a Bully into a Pulp with a Two by Four, only to find out that his Two older Brothers Seventeen and Eighteen were seasoned Gunmen who had killed before. One Saturday they crashed Rival Terroterries. Everyone in that Backyard was Armed. They all draw and fired at these Two Badass, Executing them. That’s how you deal with People carrying Guns that makes them feel Powerful, you meet Force with Force. I went to the Viewing of my intended Killers uninvited, opened the closed Caskets to see what their Bullets Dimpled faces looked Like. Fourteen years old and I decided that I would never own a Gun. This week a young Man who was entrenched in Hatered, killed Eight People in Georgia, a place South of Delaware where just about everyone believe in the Right to bear Arms. Even if you are a Complete Nut. I am not showing any Sympathy for Mental Illness in a Society that would Die before giving up their Rights to bear Arms.
Long was arrested in Crisp County, about 125 miles south of Atlanta, after his family helped police track his phone.( A 9 mm firearm that he purchased legally )on the day of the shootings was found in the car he was driving, said two senior law enforcement officials briefed about the matter.
So when One of your Children who can’t deal with the Pressures of Life and decide to take up a Vantage Point and start Dropping People like Ducks, save your Phony Sorrows. There are Politicians who are Elected strictly on a Platform of not Addressing Gun Laws. These same Politicians refuse to acknowledge that Mental Illnesses are out of Control. Mixed with all the Hate that’s been Preached and spread, sometimes by they themselves, we all need to run out and buy a Bulletproof Vest. Maybe it’s time to change my stance on Gun Ownership. If we all were Packing and someone carrying a Gun looses it, we all could pull and avoid Carnage.
Two years ago a Seventeen years old in South Florida gingerly walked the Hallways killing seventeen of his Fellow Classmates. If One Teacher was Armed lives would have been saved. But the same Bleading Hearts who say that Guns don’t belong in Schools Elects Mario Rubio who gets Donations from the N.R.A. The Law Enforcement Officer on Duty on the Campus heard the First Shot, yet he didn’t go into the Building to confront the Shooter. I can’t help wondering during his Twenty plus years as a Cop how many young Black Kids running away from him did he draw his Gun on. Many years ago in Connecticut a young Man who was a Recluse who stayed in his Room listening to Head Bangers Music, hoisting Read Flags.
The Flags were not noticed by his Mother who took him to the Gun Range with her. I guess that on this Fateful Day he was having a Bad Day. Pretty much like the Spokesman for the Sheriff Deputy in Georgia said . He said Robert Aaron Long who killed Eight People was having a Bad day. That young Man in Connecticut woke up One Morning, shot and Killed his Mother who casted a Blind Eye on her Sons Red Flags. Then went to a Kindergarten and killed Twenty Seven People, mostly Babies Seven years Old. All those Innocent Babies Lives meant nothing to the hardcore Gun Rights Activists.
What will it take to Convince People that Stricter Gun Laws are needed to protect those of us who don’t Own One. Look what The Second Amendment to the United States did to the Capitol. There were enough Armed People in the Mob to start a War. Like Wu Tang said ” The Revolution will be Televised”, and so it came to pass. Peter Paul and Mary puts it Best, ” Where have all the flowers gone, long time passing?
Where have all the flowers gone, long time ago?
Where have all the flowers gone?
Young girls have picked them, every one
Oh when will they ever learn, oh when will they ever learn?. No One is asking to take away your Toys, all I am asking is to Protect our Children who don’t pack Guns. I believe it’s Peter Gabriel who said, ” Another One bites the Dust, and another one gone and another one gone. Smile when you say that Stranger- John Wayne. Hard Issues needs to be addressed, you cant cast a Blind Eye and Deaf Ears, One Day they will come back and bite you on the Ass.
The Hate Virus
I consider myself Impervious to the Hate Virus, my Mother Vaccinated me by embedding in my Head that no One was Better than I. More Privileged, better Educated and more Fortunate. But as long as they had to go to the Bathroom as I did, no better. She also instilled in me the greatest work Ethics. She said , you may never Be accepted, but they will always Respect you for the job you do. She said that I should always go the extra mile, I should always work harder and better than everyone else. The reason for that she said was Job Security. She Continued when everyone else is laid off, you will be working.She was dead to right. Once working in Construction for a Contractor in Pennsylvania, I overhead a group of my White Coworkers lamenting about the work situation of who is working and who isn’t. I heard One spoke out loudly ” I can’t believe that I am losing my job to a Nigger. God that sound and felt good. They all had the feeling of Entitlement because they were White. The Boss Appreciated the work I gave him to the Point that he sold me his Father’s Collectible Antique Caddy for a couple of weeks pay. That killed my Coworkers and made them hate me even more. So you see being Black have never Hindered me from Striving even better than many of my White Neighbors. I once lived in an all White Gated Community, my Wife and myself were the only Blacks that ever lived in that Community Thirty five years old. Never once did any of them made me feel out of Place. But guess what I consider myself an Oddity, many Others don’t know how to stick it to them ” Be all that you can be” be so Resilient that Failure becomes Success.
This is something I have wanted to talk about for Fifty years, long before I learned to express myself in Print. America is a Country Founded by the Immigrants of the Mayflower. Once they came they never stopped coming. They came from every Corner of the World. They brought with them Money from the Old Country and they Invested it in America. They were able to buy Land, they brought their Crafts , Skills and Ingenuity. America grew and flourished from downtrodden Immigrants seeking Freedom and Opportunities. The following are Excerpts from Wikipedia
The Mayflower Story
The Mayflower set sail on 16th September 1620 from Plymouth, UK, to voyage to America. But its history and story start long before that.
Its passengers were in search of a new life – some seeking religious freedom, others a fresh start in a different land. They would go on to be known as the Pilgrims and influence the future of the United States of America in ways they could never have imagined.
This story isn’t just about the Mayflower’s passengers though. It’s about the people who already lived in America and the enormous effect the arrival of these colonists would have on Native Americans and the land they had called home for centuries.
More than 30 million people can trace their ancestry to the 102 passengers and approximately 30 crew aboard the Mayflower when it landed in Plymouth Bay, Massachusetts, in the harsh winter of 1620.
On board were men, women and children from different walks of life across England and the city of Leiden in Holland.
A significant number were known as Separatists, a group of people who mostly wanted to live a life free from the current Church of England.
Others were on the ship for a multitude of reasons – some anticipated the chance to build a better future for their families and the opportunity of new land, while for others the offer of freedom and adventure was too good to turn down.
Then there were the crew themselves, plus the servants and (unaccompanied children) sent by their families to be looked after by the adults. Related indent. ( Today we have unaccompanied Children at our Southern Borders, the good Christians say keep them out). Continued.
The passengers are often grouped into ‘Saints’ or ‘Strangers’ by historians, alluding to their motivations for the journey. But it’s likely that many ‘Saints’ were (skilled tradesmen) and many ‘Strangers’ had their own religious reasons for leaving 17th century England.
Today the Descendants of the Mayflower represents everything their Ancestors absconded England for. They Embrace none of the Driving Force that placed their Ancestors on that Ship. A chance to build a better future should be Included in the Phrase Home of the Free Land of the Brave. Their ancestors left England to be free of Oppression and Prejudices, Britton Ology is a Phrase I use to describe the Ideology of Supremacy and being Overtly Oppressive. Everywhere they went they brought it with them.
They brought it to the Americas and to Africa and the World during the Colonization period. Under the Cloak of Deception The British empire is often seen as a force for good, as one that put an end to slavery and the slave trade, liberated foreign peoples from the tyranny of their rulers, replaced despotism with the rule of law and introduced millions to literacy, western medicine, commerce and Christianity. Yet it was Britain that ensured that South Africa and Zimbabwe entered the 20th century as countries rigidly stratified and segregated along racial lines in which white minorities held political power at the expense of a disenfranchised African majority. Here the rule of law meant rule by white settlers in the interests of white settlers.
Violent from the start
In the first instance, the British empire grew out of military conquest, a bloody business by its very nature. In southern Africa, as elsewhere, it was accompanied by substantial violence, frequent starvation, much misery, an untold number of deaths, and the mutilation of African bodies by British soldiers for the purpose of taking souvenirs. Indent. -They did that to Native Americans also, must be in their Genetic makeup.
Time after time – from the onset of British rule at the end of the 18th century through to the 20th century when political power was formally handed to white settlers – British armies and British arms came down on the side of white settlers. Colonial conquest involved the burning down of homesteads, humiliating and incarcerating African chiefs, dismembering once-powerful kingdoms, all the while making Africans bear the cost of colonial rule through an elaborate system of taxation.
Though the Zulu kingdom scored a decisive victory against Britain at the Battle of Isandhlwana in 1879, the “peace” of subsequent years witnessed the breaking up of the kingdom into several chiefdoms and the forced exile of the Zulu monarch. The kingdom’s material independence was eroded while its members were absorbed into the colonial economy as cheap labourers. They did the same thing in America to the Native Americans and to the People of Africa that they brought here Forcibly. Many White People believe that Black People don’t Know History and are Stupid. What’s worse are the Black People who give that thinking credibility by being Stupid. For instance, Tim Scott the only Black Republican Senator, going on America’s biggest Misinformation Network and defending White Supremacy. Harriet Taubman spoke of him, ” I freed a Thousand Slaves, I could have freed a Thousand more, if only they knew they were Slaves”. Today Meghan Markle’s Dad says that the British People aren’t Racist, only California and the rest of America. There you have it, the Trend of Misinformation and Denials is the Norm. He said that his Daughter has Abandoned him, if he was my Dad I wouldn’t even go to his Funeral. Once again I have done my Research, something the rest of seemingly Intelligent People refuses to do. They choose to Embrace Conspiracies Theories and Cancel Culture. They also Idolize a Man whose Father went to K.K.K. Rallies and sees him as the Great White Hope, who is going to make America Great as Great Britton. That tells me that Racism is as American as 🍎 Pie and as wide as The Proverbial Pond. Curly once told Moe that he could not be Fooled. Moe asked him , how so? Curly replied, because I am a Moron. And there you have it, the Motivation for this Blog. Someone always trying to Fool Someone else.
During the late Sixties and early Seventies there were a large amount of Migrants in America. They were Americans leaving thei’r Homes for Canada and Latin America. They were young Men who turned Eighteen and was now Eligible to be drafted into the U.S. Army. The U.S. Army was getting a Lesson in Vietnam, fighting in an unconventional Warfare. Guerilla Warfare is when you don’t know who are the Enemy and who are the People you are supposed to protect. Pretty much the way that Americans are heading today. The Casualties were more than the Government was reporting, the need for replacements were great.
Yet young Americans refused to wear the Uniform. Draft Dodger was a dirty and unpatriotic word. Yet many young Americans were crossing Borders to escape the Draft. 1973 Israel was fighting a War with Three Arab Countries Simultaneously. For a while it appeared that America’s help was needed in the Middle East. With Israel’s Resilience no Troops were Deployed. The World was Burning. Just Ten years earlier the Threat of Nuclear War came close to Reality. The Missile Scare, lasted 1 month, 4 days (16 October – 20 November 1962) confrontation between the United States and the Soviet Union which escalated into an international crisis when American deployments of missiles in Italy and Turkey were matched by Soviet deployments of similar ballistic missiles in Cuba, Ninety miles from Miami.
The confrontation is often considered the closest the Cold War came to escalating into a full-scale nuclear war. The Cold War put America and Russia in deep Freeze. All through my Teenage life, my Biggest Fear was that America could become another Hiroshima. The Streets of America was congested with Protesters every Day, Blacks and Whites for different Objectives. Blacks wanted Equality, Whites wanted thei’r young Men out of Vietnam.To say that America was in Turmoil would be a Huge Understatement. I never thought that I would live to see the Land of the Free in such Turmoil as it is Today. Back then there was a Huge Threat from Sleepers ( Russians living in America waiting for Orders).
Today the Sleepers are Americans, they are Extremists working in the Government ( 150 Lawmakers tried to overturn an Election). They are Serviceman wearing Uniforms that my Tax Dollars paid for. They are Police Officers who are supposed to protect me. They are my Neighbors Two Thousand strong who stormed the Capitol looking for the Speaker of the House and the Vice President. Among the overall Ten Thousand strong many came to do Battle, they were well Armed. Many were Retired Servicemen and Women trained in Tactical Warfare, the Woman who was shot and killed was One. They were awaiting Orders that never came. If the Order was given, the small Contingent of Capitol Police would have been no Match.
All Government Employees in the Capitol would have been killed. My Wife was a Federal Employee for Twenty Five years. On January Sixth My Body was Numb with Fear for the People cowering in the Basement of the Capitol. On Nine Eleven the same Numbness covered me, thinking of the Nine Hundred fellow Coworkers working for Solomon Brothers in the World Trade Towers. Is this my America or did I fell asleep and woke up in the Middle East. Today I have a New Fear, not for myself, but for the Eighth years old living in America today. I ask myself, from what they are Witnessing today, how is it shaping thei’r Social Values. How safe will they be, Twenty five years from now, living in Beirut U.S.A. in the year 1972.
Going to work and your Bus Explodes, Eating Alfresco and Thugs drive by and spray Bullets. This is how Extremists work. Today Americans are fair Game for Radicalization on both sides of the Fence. If a Civil War breaks out in America, that would only Embolden Russia and China to fulfill a lifelong ambition of flying their Flags over the Capitol. Divide and Conquer is a Tool used by the Greatest Conquerors of the World. This is Sixty Eight years of learning talking to you. You need to get rid of all the Bullshit Conspiracies and all the Extremism that is weakening this Democracy. Parting Words, all the Great Empires of the World have fallen, the African, the Egyptian, the Aztecs, the Roman the Ming Dynasty. Are we approaching the fall of America?. I was only Fifteen years old in 1969, it was all the Bullshit that was going on that Dissuade me from Higher Learning, thinking that it was only a Capitalist Tool. Today the Future of the Fifteen years old out of School watching Television all Day is in your Hands and the way you vote, the next time you select a President.
Sometime in the Eighties a young Gay Man in Greenwich Village was chased and beaten. His Attackers were all Boys from good Homes. They all had Baseball Bats, they beat him to a Pulp, he did not survive the Attack. Just about the same Time a young Black man’s car broke down in Howard Beach. He went into the Neighborhood Pizzeria to make a Phone call. He was setup on by a Woolf- Pack of Haters all wielding Baseball Bats. The chased him to his Death crossing the Belt Parkway. These events happened Forty years ago and will happen again. When you have People like Marjorie Taylor in Governments, that is a Guarantee that Hate Crimes is as American as Apple Pie. Do not forget that Governments are a Representation of the Populous. Lets not forget that we’ve got a kinder gentle Machine Gun Hand. Did anyone noticed that those M.A.G.A. Boys all had Machine Guns. America the Choice is in your Vote.
