Affirmative action is dangerous. Hiring unqualified people to do jobs that affect public safety, whether it’s delivering mail (or not delivering it), driving buses, handling food, working on construction, graduating from medical school, working with the elderly is insane. Threatening to burn cities if affirmative action is abolished proves the point. Affirmative action needs to be abolished like every other prejudice. Affirmative action is prejudice. Qualified, no matter what your race, is key.
Where conditions need to be leveled is in instances of poverty, but poverty cut off levels are so high, that most poor people, unfortunately, will go without opportunities. If someone works, no matter how little they make, they’re not considered poor by USA government standards, unless they have six kids. I live in a poor neighborhood, so I know how the rest of the world treats poor people, from pharmacists, to grocery stores, businesses of all kinds, hospitals, doctors, lawyers, judges, restaurants, you name it, if you come from a poor side of the city, you get treated with disrespect. People think they can say whatever they want to you, talking down, around, as if you’re not even in the room.
When I called the police the first time my car was stolen, the first thing he asked when he walked into the apartment (and I’ve made a castle of an apartment in this ghetto building I live in) was what medications I was on, asked me if I was in pain. Wouldn’t tell me his name when I asked him. Told me he didn’t believe somebody stole my car, and when I told him there were toxic mold samples in the trunk in Petrie dishes, he said that he guaranteed that if they found the car, there would be no petrie dishes in the trunk. I finally had to call my husband at work and have him verify what I had said, before the cop would believe me.
The landlord blamed me for buying used cars. People tell me to move, indicating that I deserve what I get for living where I live. Firstly I can’t afford to move, but secondly, why should I be driven out of my home because people want to burn down the building and steal my cars? I can just hear Donna Brazile on TV saying, ‘but they don’t have cars’. Well, why doesn’t she buy them one, so I can keep mine? My husband took two buses to work, because some car thieves, who didn’t have a job, didn’t want to take a bus. That’s called black on white crime. Al Sharpton doesn’t talk about that. He just doesn’t want blacks committing crimes against other blacks. Guess his word got through.
Does affirmative action carry over to cars? If someone has a job, then someone without a job can take the car as long as they can get into it? The cops say it doesn’t matter if you lock it and have a crossbar on the steering wheel, they have a tool that will cut out the door lock, then once they’re in they have another tool to rip the column to hot wire it. They can do it in fifteen seconds.
I gave a car to a Muslim once, who didn’t have one and could only get jobs on bus lines. And in Cleveland, you can’t count on buses. The Feds had a fit. Came out to a restaurant I was at and had some scary acting guy from a hundred and something Airborne lecture me about PLO killing people. This was long before 9-11. I didn’t even know what a Muslim was. Maybe all those cars I lost were payback from the Feds. After all, they do monitor me, so they must know who took them.
Camp Gitmo, Guantanamo Bay is a concentration camp run by the USA. Why does Cuba allow that on their Island? Shut it down. NOW. Using POWs at Gitmo for “learning” purposes is perverse. Using inmates as idea machines, making them solve problems the USA military cannot solve is insane. If these prisoners are so dangerous, then why would the USA use them to generate solutions, ideas, ‘what if’ scenarios? Why would they use them as trouble shooters? Have the Feds run out of ideas, so they feel compelled to steal the intellectual material of prisoners? I don’t doubt that they do it; they do it to me. They torture them, keep them under their absolute control, then demand that they solve their problems for them. That’s a violation of all five principles, and it has to be in violation of our own laws. That nobody does anything about it, proves the dictatorship of our government. Use your own pool of people. What, not enough smart agents? Is everybody too busy protecting the liability of the President and Vice President, and making movies for Hollywood?
You can’t steal people’s intellectual material under threats of torture and slaughter, and then use it for monetary gain. While the Surveillance Act was being debated, the Feds blocked me from sending or receiving emails. Even on cable TV the commentators were saying that no one was objecting. Well, this someone wanted to, but the Feds wouldn’t allow it. That’s enslavement. I didn’t even get spam. Not one. Every time we called Time Warner, they had an excuse. When they first set up the system, after I tried to send my first email, it said it was not sent, followed by a notice that read, “This person has been restricted.” Powerless is how I felt. Powerless is how they wanted me to feel. Even as I write this Word Warrior I’m thinking they’ll block it by email, and block it by USA postal service. I’m writing it anyway. If I die a sudden, mysterious death, you’ll all know who did it. It’s odd how the Feds want my ideas, so much so that they’ll enslave and torture me for them, but they don’t want anybody else to get them. Oh, but they’ll give them to Hollywood. Why? Because Hollywood is CIA controlled. Hollywood works for the FBI, the military, you name it. They even had the audacity to tell me to stop whispering in my apartment; “somebody will think you have something to hide; talk louder”. You didn’t know there was a Gitmo for one person in Waterloo did you? Well, these little cells, they’ve set up, are everywhere. I’m not the only one they do this to.
The CIA cannot be separated from Hollywood, and Hollywood cannot be separated from the CIA. No one organization with the influential power of Hollywood is going to be allowed to have that enormous power unless the USA intelligence agencies and law enforcement agencies are in on it.
You can’t be a hunter and be pro-life. You can be a hunter and be anti-abortion, but you can’t then call yourself pro-life with any credibility. The same is so for killing or raping a person for committing a crime. Somebody with enslavement, torture and slaughter tendencies, whether man or woman, is not what’s needed in the White House. We’ve already had that with Bush-Cheney. Their enslavement, torture and slaughter tendencies put the entire world in the precarious position it’s in today. Barack Obama had to quit smoking to set a good example to the populace, during his primary campaign, even though smoking is legal. All politicians who run for office, who are also hunters, should quit hunting, stop bragging about slaughter and laughing at the progressive diet choices of vegetarians. Thank God for bad Indian hunters. Eating flesh contributes to the creation of malformed tissues, which leads to cancers and a number of other diseases and disorders. First you kill the animal, then the animal kills you, slowly but surely. Doctors tell women to quit drinking and smoking while pregnant, but fail to tell them to quit eating animal products.
We don’t need pit bulls in the White House either. We have a lot of them in Waterloo, where I live. Their caretakers are negligent, letting them roam without leashes. Most of them are used as attack dogs. I wonder why so many blacks have pit bulls? I wonder why so many blacks punch their pit bulls? I wonder why they think they need the protection of a dog? I love animals, but I don’t like pit bulls unless they’re on a leash–a very short leash. When somebody starts bragging about being a pit bull with lipstick, I become concerned and cautious at once. I go immediately, via every instinct I have, into alert and survival mode. I know what pit bulls do. I live with them. It’s time to outlaw the breeding of pit bulls in every state. Just do it before a sic a pack of them on you.
Block that thought. It’s okay to say no to your own developing ideas, when they don’t conform to the five principles.
It’s not the fault of the pit bulls. It’s the fault of the breeders and the handlers who force them to fight, force them to protect their handlers, force them to be mean by punching them forever in the head, in the ribs, disrespecting them at every turn. I don’t have to tell you how much it boils my blood to see this, to know that deep in the night, in the abandoned warehouses of Cleveland, bets are laid, while dogs tear each other to shreds. A lust for blood these handlers have and a lust for the blood of the handlers is how these tables will turn.
Prejudice: I don’t like all men, nor do I like all women. I don’t like all Italians, Irish, or Indian people. I don’t like all cars, all food, all movies, all perfumes. Why then, must I like all gays, blacks, Jews, Muslims, Christians or any other group just because of their distinguishing features? I don’t have to like ever single horse, dog, cat, cow, bird, goat. All that’s required by the universe is that I respect and honor everyone’s right to exist, while applying the five principles to all of my actions. Blacks want to be lighter and whites want to be darker. Thin-lipped people want full lips and full-lipped people want thin lips. Straight hair wants wavy, and wavy wants straight. Fine wants thick and thick wants fine. You hate your hair until you’re bald. If you don’t have the body feature you want, you hate all those who do. You can talk yourself into a prejudice if it’s something everybody else is doing. Hey, they all discriminate against him, why not me? The majority isn’t always right. If you can’t figure that out, then you need to get back into a healthy ‘womb’ of your making and rebirth yourself.
I don’t think any differently toward a left-handed person than a right-handed one. Left-handed people, however, really do think of themselves as different, and maybe because of that they really are treated differently. Sometimes we create a prejudice where there is none, simply because we view ourselves as different.
In order to find what’s wrong with anything, you must also find what’s right. Use the two to find workable solutions.
Two things that appear contradictory can both be true.
I love cool, balmy air, co-mingling.
If the USA is going to tout themselves as the leader of the world, then every citizen in the world has a legitimate, vested interest in who will be the elected leader of the USA. Who elected it leader anyway?
Re: pity: Just because someone doesn’t want pity, doesn’t mean that if they fall on the ice while crossing the street that they don’t want assistance in getting up. If they can do it themselves, all the better. I find that often those who don’t want pity, get punished by those around them who consequently withhold all forms of caring behavior.
Alert. Police departments around the nation are taught by Homeland Security to regard people who write long letters as mentally ill. I guess that’s a prejudice based on a prejudice implemented by the Jews, turned on themselves, since it’s mostly Jews who write long letters. There’s a sublist of the terrorist watch list of those considered unstable and a lot of Jews are on it. You’ve been given a heads up.
It’s time to release all prisoners worldwide who are not a physical threat to themselves or others. Just decide to do it, then get it done.
What I write isn’t the be all and the end all. It’s a beginning. Now how about you doing a beginning; you making a contribution? You can find something wrong with everything I say; even I can do that, but you can just as easily find a whole lot right with it. Remember, there are many solutions to one problem when you use the blueprint. You’ll either move on new knowledge or you won’t. If you don’t, eventually the universe will do what it takes to make you move in the direction that preserves the planet. You can do it in the absence of prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter. That’s the easy way.
