Beg to Disagree

Growing up in the Seventies where Lies and Deception in Government was as Prevalent as it is Today. Where Mainstream Media was as self-serving as it is Today. One Newsman stepped out of the Box and called the Shots the way he saw it. He gave new meaning to the Term, Investigative Reporter. A lot of People Lambasted him for his Style. I Respected Rivera for his Candidness. I have always thought that the Media should report both sides of an issue. Not what your Readers want to hear, but actually putting the Facts out ahead of personal beliefs and opinions. Taking sides with Political persuasions is Partisan Reporting. That makes you a Propaganda Machine not a Journalist.

Though reportorial contributions have been made by the Web generation, it is fair to say the vast majority of blogging does not qualify as journalism. If journalism is the imparting of verifiable facts to a general audience through a mass medium, then most blogs fall well short of meeting the standard. In no way do I Pattern myself as or to be a Journalist, or another Geraldo Rivera. Only someone who is not afraid of the Truth. I have been a Fact finder since I was a Juvenile going to Sunday School. A lot of the things that was Thought to me, I had Dissected it before Fifteen. I was never One to take things at Face value, whether coming from my Mother or a Cleric. This was nine years before I entered High School and met a Teacher who challenged me Daily to tell her, what is the Author is not saying. Or the other Teacher who told me to never stop Learning.

Einstein said the Day you stop Learning you begin to Die. Its a wonder I didn’t become an Atheist by Fifteen. Strong Convictions and taking everything that I learned with a grain of Salt kept me Focused and grounded. By the time I finished High School I was such a Cynical person I swear that I never would get Married. I thought that it was only Players that were involved in Relationships. Being an inquisitive Person all my life, One Day I decided to take a chance, I have been Married to that same chance for Thirty Eight years. For the rest of my Life I remained, not a Cynic, but One who always asked, show me the Proof. After being ripped off by Used Car Salesmen, I made it my Business to Diagnosed and fix Cars. Lied to by men of God, the Words ” Many will profess my Name” is Etched in my Heart.

After hearing Politicians promising the Moon while Campaigning, then go to the Capitol and work for Lobbyists and Special Interests. Has sharpened my Skills in Body Language and to Archive what the Speaker isn’t saying. I proved my Abilities Eight years ago in Pennsylvania. I told my Boss that I could spot a Slacker One Mile in a Fog. She told me that I was full of it. Unbeknownst to her that I was referring to her. Before leaving Pennsylvania and moving to Florida, she got Promoted to Regional Manager. Within One and a half Years she got fired. Over the years I have learned how to Read People better than reading Print. So here I am once again Twelve A.M. writing this Blog that just won’t wait for me to lose the Train of Thought. I ask myself, if with my little Brain, I can put together all the Tangibles and piece together the Facts and Dissect the Conspiracies.

Why is it Impossible for someone who Graduated College and Law School to Dissect the Steal. Fact-1 The U.S Attorney General of the same Party Debunked the Notion and lost his Job. Doesn’t anyone understand what makes Politicians Tick, Opportunity, do you think that Barr would Jeopardize his Political Future if he found the slightest Discrepancy and didn’t run with the Ball. Fact-2 do you think that Three Handpicked Supreme Court Judges would Committee Perjury, or Forty Seven other Federal Judges for that matter. Fact-3 Imagine the World we live in if the Bastion of Higher Learning such as Harvard, Yale, Princeton and Wharton cast a Blind Eye knowing that an Election was Rigged like a Horse Race filled with Broken down Nags and One Thoroughbred. Fact-4 Imagine the Financial Fallouts if Wall Street knew that the Election was Rigged and kept their Knowledge secret.

I worked on Wall Street, Rumors can Topple Wall Street. Fact -5 Take a look at the Source, someone who said that the Corona Virus was a Hoax and would be gone in Two Weeks. That Hoax have killed half a Million People. Fact-6 someone who Built a Skyscraper with mostly Mexican Labor, that was Demolished within Forty Years. Talking about Shabby Construction, the house I lived in Pennsylvania was 100 years Old made of Wood and will last another 100 years. Trump Towers in Atlantic City was made of Steel, they cut so many corners the Building should have been round. I rest my Case, what am I? The One Eyed Monster in the Forest of the Blind?. One of the biggest Champions of the Conspiracy is a Born Again Christian, who said that Christianity has saved him from Cocaine. I think that he should go back to smoking the Rocks because I think he is still Zoning, spreading Conspiracy Theories. Once again ” Many will profess my Name”.

History Repeating Itself

 

 

 

 

History Repeating Itself

The FBI have Arrested Two Hundred and Fifty of the Traitors who put Bullshit conspiracies coming from a Man who would throw his Mother under the Bus, if she disagreed with him. The same way he Threw Pence and the US Government to the Wolves that Crashed the Capitol. I never had a Stomach for Politics, but when you live in a Community and a Society that allows themselves to be led like Sheep and are unable to formulate a Logical Opinion all on their own, Righteous minded People are thrown into the Circus Act that is Known as Politics. We are obligated to speak up, the Truth will always be the Truth even if no One believes it.

There was no Steal! 99.9% of Black People who casted a Vote, Voted against White Supremacy, they Voted against the KU Klux Klan, they Voted against Terrorism. Trump Embraced them all. There are good People on both sides he said after the Virginia Klan Rally. We did not like the Idea that his Father was Arrested while marching with the KU Klux Klan in Jamaica Queens 1927 ( Wrong Place wrong Time? so was the Capitol ). Bad Parents live their Children’s Lives. Somewhere around July the Proud Boys were ready to kill. When Mainstream Conservative America asked him to Denounce them, he told them to stand down, meaning that when I need you I will summon you.

Since then the Canadian Government have declared them to be a Terrorist Group. White Educated Suburbanites who voted for him 2016 didn’t want to be associated with Deplorables, so they voted Democrat. Not One Inner City in the entire U.S.A where Black People lived was won by Trump, there are Twenty Five point Eight Million,  eligible Black Voters. He needed every One of them to win. ( Message in a Bottle)The only Places he carried were Rural, So-called Heartland. If the entire Election was Scrapped and re- done the Outcomes would be the same( Black People don’t like him) the only way he could win is to Deny the Black Vote from being counted and he tried, Read my Lips ” Black People and White Suburbanites who didn’t want another Civil War in this Country, voted him out.

Blacks and Whites have always had their Differences, but they kept it Civilized. 1948 the German People didn’t keep it Civilized. Their Hatred for Jews Manifested into the Third Reich. Hitler was just the Tool, the Executioner. He was the Puppet Master screaming take our Country back, the German People bears the Guilt. The World will not be Destroyed by those who do Evil, but by those who watch and do nothing – Albert Einstein, from his Mouth to your Ears, been there. The secret of freedom lies in educating People, the secret of Tyranny is keeping them Ignorant- Robespierre.

July 14, 1789 the French People who stormed The Bastille yelled Vive La France ( Patriotic Words ) followed by Guillotine, they were of the same Mindset of those who stormed the Rotunda yelling ” Hang Mike Pence, kill Nancy. My God have we Evolved or what, Twenty First Century Peasants yelling Guillotine, Guillotine. Storming the Capitol is the Handwriting on the Sacred Walls of our Democracy. A Democracy that is Etched in Time for all People the World over who wants to be Free of Tyranny will Imitate. When the First Militia was formed it was to defend against Foreign Forces, not against its own Government. People don’t like when I am Brutality Frank, but Fifty Two years of living this Nightmare that One Day the Ku Klux klan will be in Power is looking so real, With people like Marjorie Taylor and the 150 Lawmakers who would Disenfranchise the Black Vote.

That was just a Dream

The Acid reflux that invaded my Intestines in High School, is still there, going to a School that was 85% White, 10% Black and Five Percent Latinos. I have lived this Daymare for 52 years, this is my Groundhog Life. The Bronx 1972 produced the Bronx Tale, that was my last year in Taft High School. Where I lived I could yell my Order out the Window to the Jewish Deli downstairs. One year out of High School and all the White People had left the Neighborhood, my Deli was gone, all because Black People had moved in the Neighborhood, this is my America. The Bronx was now the Ghetto of Warsaw, how quickly we forget. It was that early in Life that I learned that Hate was stronger than Christianity, and that it was a Religion in America.

Adolf Hitler told the German People that the Aryan People were the Superior Race, they believed him, look at the Outcomes. Trump told his Followers that the Election was Stolen and they believed him,  look at the Outcomes. History has repeated itself. My Mother was Homeschooled by a U.S. Army General and his Family while working for him as his Housekeeper. At Nine years old she told me that no One was above me, no One was better than I. She elaborated, if they went to the Bathroom like you did and had the dirty Deed of cleaning themselves, they are no better than you, more Privileged and better Educated, that’s all. While working in a Nursing Home I met a woman Eighty years old, she was of Polish Decent, we grew to Love each other.

I called her Chachi, she called me Chachi ( Grand Mother- Grand Father) she told me that I was wiser than my years, that’s why she called me Grandfather. One Day another Resident who was a Millionaire was acting Superior, they were waiting to get their shower. Chachi told her, if you are so Good, why don’t you go and Lick yourself clean. All the Staff and Residents could not understand why we Bonded like Crazy Glue, they didn’t realize that we were both of the same mindset. My Second Mother who I adopted in the same Nursing Home, an eighty years old Irish Woman from the Old Country. She said Tooney ( Tony ) they are all full of Blarney. This Blog is Dedicated to Liz and Chachi, these were the People who made America Great.

The World's Greatest Daredevil

Liz told me that when she came from Ireland as a young Woman, working as a Housekeeper on Fifth Ave in Manhattan, she had to use the backdoor and the Service Elevator. This is my America, I have invested over One and a Half Million in Taxes and Social Security. Every Month I send IRS a check for Two Hundred and Fifty Dollars above my Biweekly Payroll Taxes. If I tried to leave this Country IRS would Object. I told my Wife a Retired Federal Employee that if I lived to be a Hundred years old, I still would Owe IRS. I have been doing my Own Tax Returns for Forty years, I am good, but not good enough to reduce my out of Pocket to 750 Dollars without Cheating. God Bless America, Home Sweet Home.

Literacy, a Shrinking Social Value

Five years ago when I started my first Website, I invited this person to visit my Site, read my first Five Blogs and tell me what they thought. Days later they told me that they liked what they had read, they also told me that they had Dabbled in writing also and asked me to read some of thei’r work. The work consisted of Flower Children mindset Poetry. Not knowing if I could provide enough quality Blogs to Generate an Audience, I invited them to be a Guest Writer on my Website. They produced One Post, then tells me that there would be no more, because they didn’t want to be involved with W.W.W.  Publications. I considered their stance queer, considering that the Web was a Great way to Showcase your Skills. A short while later their Posts was popping up on Social Media in Record Numbers. Then it occurred to me that they were nothing but a Social Media Junkie, a Hound for that 30 second of Fame. Someone who had no interest in leaving a Mark on the Literary Media. Someone who didn’t want to work for Notoriety, below you will find their latest Post on my Social Network, you be the Judge, did I get lucky not having them Post on my Website or what. I would like to hear your Thoughts on what Einstein said about a Generation of Idiots.

Civil Unrest

 

 

Civil Unrest

Today I had the most Edifying Conversation with a Deputy who is Eighty Days from Retirement. The Conversation began with me telling him Merry Christmas, Happy New Years and all that stuff on 02/01/21. I had not seen him since the Week before Christmas. He asked me if my planned move to South Carolina was still on. I told him that there could be no dissuasion. I told him that this was her place of Birth and that she was Resolved about going Home. I interjected that I hope that this wasn’t the Elephant Syndrome  (returning to your place of Birth to Die ). Then we continued about the way some People are about their perspectives, my way or the Highway. Then we broached on the way things are Today, the split in America. He is White and Fifty Five Years old, I am Black and Sixty Seven years old. He is Republican I am Democrat yet we could have a Civilized Disagreement about the Social Upheavals we are Experiencing.

We Discussed the Evils of Socialism’s, yet the need for Affordable Health Care, Economic and Racial Equality. There are Black People whose Wealth surpasses a Hundred Billionaires, yet inner City kids go to Bed Hungry. As you can see Greed has no Color. So you see my Hateful Friend, it’s not White against Black, it’s us against them. My Best Friend at Thirteen was Eighty Percent White, his Brother Ninety Percent, yet they were considered Black. I believe that notion created an Identity Crisis and inward conflicts for them. They rejected their White Heritage vehemently. The Conversation was like Salt and Pepper coming together at the Dinner Table to make the Meal more Palatable. That brought us to the Heart of the Matter. Coming to the Table with ” Emotional Intelligence”. In Sixty Seven years of living I had never heard that Phrase until he told me that I possessed it. We then ended the Conversation on the Premise that this was the Missing Equation at the Table. I was already Two Hundred words into this Blog before we had this Conversation. All it did was to put a Column Post to this Blog.

1972 America was in Turmoil with Civil Upheavals dealing with Civil Rights protests and the Vietnam War. Black People wanted equal justice, something that is still elusive and White People wanted their Young Men out of Vietnam, a war that was considered to be Illegitimate. America was getting her Ass Kicked, Crooked Nixon and his Nixon Republicans were playing Smoke and Mirrors with the Numbers of Fatalities on each side. The Day that I had planned to enlist, something happened and I missed my appointment. One of my Childhood friends who was Three years older than I kept his appointment. Within One and a half years in this Guerrilla warfare this Patriotic young Man Decided that he had seen enough of his Comrades Dying senselessly. He slipped away from his Unit and made his way back to the Bronx. When I saw him I thought I had seen a Ghost,

Two weeks earlier he had written to me how they were trapped in a Fierce ambush, he stated that this was everyday occurrences, and that he didn’t think that he would make it back home. Weeks before he Enlisted we had many Debates about why should a Black Man in America join the Army, there were Racism in the Army and in the Neighborhood, where were the Gains. Back then I was not enlightened to the Words ” always support your Country, your Government only when deserving”. So there you have it, the motivation for this Blog. Extremely Skilled U.S. Army trained Black Men, trained Killers, living next-door. About One year ago One of them returned Home to the most Pregudicall place on Earth, Texas U.S.A. he was unable to deal with the Degradation of being Black living in Texas. One Day he Armed himself and took up a Vantage Point Four Stories in a Garage. Before they Blew him up with a Robot Bomb he had killed Four Cops. A couple of Days later in Louisiana Two Cops got Ambushed the way my Friend and his Unit got Ambushed in Vietnam, Two more Cops lost their Lives. A Thousand Miles further North in Missouri another Ambush. If that’s not Homegrown Terrorism then I am a fan of the Ku Klux Clan. Albert Einstein said that a Fool does things the same way indefinitely, each time looking for different Results. Today we are living in a Toxic Environment of Extremists Driven Separatism and Division. As a result of misunderstanding and misinterpretations of the Second Amendment White Supremacist Groups are Extremely Armed and Facilitate the Notions of Armed Confrontations.

The Ignition, widespread Conspiracy Theories that they are losing their Country, that they stole from the Native Americans. What gave these People the Notions that the North Americas Belongs to the White Man. The People on the Mayflower were Refugees running from Extremism and oppression.

They came here and Perpetuated Genocide on the true American, the Native American. They then went to Africa and Kidnapped an Entire Generation of People. With Brutality and ungodly treatment of the Black People uprooted from their Home and with Free Labor, they Forged their way into Civilization. When the rest of the World developed Consciousness and decided to free their Slaves America was the last Civilized Nation to follow Suit. That was preceded by a Bloody Battle that cost Sixteen Thousand Lives to keep things Status Quo. Four Hundred years Later and they want to make America Great Again and take their Country back from Progressives. Taking a Country back has its Costs.

1971 I was only Seventeen when I told my Friends that the same way People were Dropping Buildings in the Middle East, one Day that would happen in America. Then came Tim McVeigh then the World Trade Center with Nine Hundred of my former Coworkers. I told my Friends that Israel Facilitated all the Terrorist activities that was going on in Lebanon and Tel Aviv. They asked me how so, I told them that when People have nothing to lose, they Sacrifice their Lives to make a Statement. What the Engineers of this Movement don’t understand is that if White Supremacists were to take Power, Yes the Seeds are Planted in Congress. Black People would be put in the same Predicament that the Palestinian People were subjected to. Hence the Father of Terrorism Yasir Arafat came to Power and even become President of Lebanon. Be careful of whom you choose to become President 2024. Marjorie Taylor Greene is the Supremacist Seed, the Pig wearing Lipstick and Heels. She said that Seventeen years old Cruz didn’t Kill seventeen of his fellow Classmates in my Home State of Florida. She attached the Killings and the World Trade Center to Conspiracy Theories, that both circumstances were Dubious. Well there you have it , Ignorance is an Epidemic and is Contagious, there are many others in the Government. One of them will run for President in 2024 and take Trumpisim to the next Level. I will end this with my favorite prompt, what is the Author not saying?. Forget about that, I will tell you what I am saying, America is Approaching The Edge of Night and us the God-fearing Ones who Love this Land need lend a helping Hand.

Conveyance

 

 

 

Conveyance-

the action of making an idea, feeling, or impression known or understandable to someone.

The Importance of coming across is the Backbone of Communication. If you are a Doctor and you have a Consultation with your Patient about a Procedure, it is your Job to make sure that he Comprehends, what you just said. If you are the Patient it is your Job to ask questions until you fully grasp what was just said. That Train of Thought carries over in all Conversations, even in asking Directions. What brought this on is, my Wife who is a Paper Pusher she worked for the City of New York and the Federal Government for years. She tried to get us Scheduled for the Vaccine for Two weeks.

We Completed the Paperwork on line, each time we tried to get an Appointment, the Screen comes up no more Appointments available. We were at the point of giving up because of the Frustrations. Then she decided to call the Department of Health and asked what was going on, do you have Vaccines or not. Then Wallah the Communication Deadlock was broken, they told her that the Vaccine would be available at a certain Hour, only then can you secure an Appointment. That wasn’t Communicated at any point of the Paper chase. Is this One of those need to know situations or what. And you wonder why the Distribution is in such Disarmament.

Well my Friend welcome to Bureaucracy. Ill- Communication dominates our Lives, but more so in Government. People do not understand the Importance of coming across ( making sure that the next person fully understand what is being communicated) poor Communication is as bad as poor Speaking, I call that Talking with Marbles in your Mouth. The saying that something was lost in the Translations, no, it was lost in the Communication. Sometimes I think that People are just too lazy to use their Lips and Tongues correctly. When it comes to Conveying your Thoughts, don’t presume that I understood what you said, ask me do you understand, especially when you are Conveying, that is an Important Word.

Brings to Mind when Car Dealerships are Conveying thei’r Disclaimers, same thing with Pharmaceuticals, they tell you that the Product could kill you But you take it at your own risk. However the average listeners did not get that. Everyday Conversations shouldn’t be like Disclaimers when you walk away the other person should not be Puzzled. Using as few Words as possible and getting my point across is one of my strong points in Blogging. So there you have it I’ve said enough.
