Let’s get this 3rd month of ZW’s second year going. As usual I have so much to blog about that I don’t know how to pick something and “obsess” on it long enough to write a post. But here’s a couple of things on my mind this morning to get back into the swing of things again:
How the hell did I miss that?!? Well I posted there today, I know, a little late, I’m either way ahead of the game or fashionably late, but they average out to keeping me on time.
With Bill back in jail and the last of the Lemmings scrambling, this page would be great! It’s like a new Bill W. Facebook where everyone can comment. LOL. But I don’t think it will last. Too bad. We still have the JIALK Blog though:
LMFAO! Best pic yet Ollie Reader! I along with many others who have come across this are very happy for all “The Joeys” and others who are getting to have the “last word” on the subject. Very inspirational!
Ferguson is back in the news and I still haven’t finished my post on the subject. I’ve written and deleted and rewritten it many times and have almost given up on finishing it. Look, racism exists… it’s EVERYWHERE! And the relationship between law enforcement and the public has been on a steady decline for a while. These are not easy things to discus, but we need to discus them. Trouble is, no one wants to see the other side of things. It’s this way or it’s that way.
A cops job is dangerous and they go through things on a daily basis that are not fair to make a human being go through. The poor (which tends to include most of our country’s minorities, another thing we should be discussing) have a harder time getting fair treatment by the judicial system all around. There, see how easy it is to see both sides… wouldn’t be nicer if LE could have a safer job? Wouldn’t it be great if the system worked for us all equally? These are the reasons why we need to discus this stuff, why all sides need to be understood, other wise everyone just keeps stating their side and nothing is done about any of it.
Since the shooting of Michael Brown, it has gone back n forth… we’ve had reports that Michael was shot with his hands up, then no, that’s a lie, he was charging the Officer who shot him, we then learn that the witnesses from both sides seem to be tainted in some ways. We’ve seen the investigations leading to coruption and those who said there was nothing here to even look at. Cop shot a bad guy end of story. Back n forth, seeming to go nowhere. And the discussion goes on.
Maybe we will get past the back n forth at some point. I hope so… it’s beyond time to get past the discussions and move forward with understandings. And let’s not stop with racial discrimination, minorities are definitely discriminated against, but the real discrimination has and always will be on the majority… the poor.
I mean let’s face it… being poor is a crime. And trying to help them is a worse crime. This coming from a society who feels Christians are under attack. What Christians? Christianity is based on taking care of your sick and your poor… but our President is breaking the law for giving the sick and poor health care. After all, none of these Christians want to pay for the sick and the poor’s health care. Kennedy, from Fox News said so today.
Some of you may remember Kennedy from her MTV days:
Though now she is one of Fox News Pretty Talking Heads. The whole thing boggles my mind… but well, I went to Twitter to respond to Kennedy:
First off, it was nice of Kennedy to reply. But really, “Do it by choice, not by force”. That is such a “talking head” thing to say. If you don’t mind doing it, it’s not by force. If it’s in your precious Bible of what you are supposed to do, who cares how it gets done? Only because you don’t want to do it, does it become forced… and well, that was my point. She came back with this:
LMFAO… really? REALLY? Isn’t Jesus encouragement enough? No? What does “this current system” mean? That sounds like an Obama crack. Yes since the black man took office, we are no longer encouraged to help the sick and poor. Wait? Um… he’s practically “forcing” you to care, didn’t you just say that? I’m confused.
Look we can blame others for why we don’t do what we know is right. No one wants to admit they are greedy and could care less about the weak and the poor or the sick and the needy, they only want to take care of themselves. But the truth is very obvious, to me at least. What that matters, I don’t know. Well, I still said my piece:
I’m expecting Twitter to ground me at any time, lol. I’m just not good at it.
Back n forth… back n forth… and nothing get’s done…
Business as usual… no one really wants to fix things…
But I’m really getting tired of all the hypocrisy… I can’t be the only one.
Alright, I’ll stop here, but only for the moment. This is gonna be a busy post month, hope I still have some readers out there.
