(Rated NC-17) Full On Racism + Sexism Bigotry on Instagram


Honestly, WHAT is this world coming to?

I'm not bothered nor shocked that this is obviously pornography on Instagram which is against the rules. I'm not shocked by nudity or sexuality, altho' when it's unwanted sexual content, I hate it.

Honestly when I look at this, at first I just see 2 persons engaged in coitus. Whatever. Not anything I haven't even seen...

I would've just kept looking for other things whne I was searching for something unrelated and this guy came up...

The new stereotype with white males 30 years and older is this new trend in racism, and bigotry whether subtle, closeted, or full on, yet often in denial...

But, I noticed there was texts perked my curiosity. What does it say that this pale skinned dude has felt so compelled to share it. I figured it was just male hormones. Maybe something about getting some tail... I dunno....

So, I read it.

Holy shit balls!

The fact that this guy had darker skin didn't even phaze me, to the point that I didn't even notice. Honestly I always felt having more color to the skin on a male made him more sexually attractive, like at least a sun tan, or maybe an olive tone.

Women usually describe man they're attracted to as "tall, dark, and handsome" still to this day. And, I feel somehow the presence of the sight of his skin being not so pale seemed to enhance your high or climax when your younger and your hormones make you more attracted and open to casual sex like you're genetically programmed to be. But, I feel its so common for women to date men of all colors in my country. It's just so normal that it's not even an issue.

What wasn't shocking here was the sex, or the porn, nor it being 2 persons of different skin colors.  It wasn;t abnormal at all.

But, when I read the texts I was gobsmacked!

WTF did i just read????

People seem to sink to NEW LOWS constantly!

The graphic tells some kind of story of some chick on her prom ditching her prom date to hook up with a 1/4 back football player.

Teens doing off the wall sex things is not anything shocking. it's what teenagers apparently do, because a ton of teen I knew in high school did wild stupid things very similar around prom, like gang bangs which to us was shocking in 1997 or 1998, but I knew people from other high schools that were even crazier, and including my younger brother's generation that graduated after mine.

Honestly, who cares? The following year in college they're all gonna have sex with each other anyway, pretty much, because all the tabboos  will be out the window...

But, this graphic berates this girl for having sex with a black man, as tho' she's somehow ruined forever. WTF???

Not only is this OVERTLY and EXTREMELY RACIST, it's SEXIST to the MAX!

Not only that, but he "thinks it's funny".


WTF???

Oh, but it gets worse! Another guy at church sent it to him while he was IN CHURCH!

And, he wanted to tell everyone THAT!

REALLY?

And, the commenters thought it was humorous also!

This clearly sexist and racist graphic (which I think is just a fictional story) is FUNNY? This is Comedy to you, to be mocked??? REALLY????

*face-palm*

This isn't even subtle! Not in the least!


It's all about you, huh?

Whatever. I hope this chick had the time of her life, and it's a story she can brag about when she's old! Obviously whomever made this stupid graphic was FUCKING JEALOUS and has Freudian penis Envy. I hope this dude rocked her world! Go get it girl!

Closet Racism & Full On Bigotry: Stupid Shit People on my FB Feed Mindlessly Post 002

Oh, they're BACK at it AGAIN!

This has the facts skewed. Typical staw-man.

Prejudiced against a group of people based JUST on their ethnic, regional, and religious background from a standpoint of blind fear, and hate.

Also, these idiots know NOTHING about what a refugee actually is.

Also, Syed Farook conveniently omitted. The dude was AMERICAN.

There's some speculation that the woman was possibly suffering from a medical condition known as postpartum depression. And YES, women have been known to go pyscho and kill people whom are afflicted with this condition.

The guy that posted this went mental when I tried to address the issue. I thought perhaps he'd unthinkingly made a mistake. So, I wrote to him  explaining that he shouldn't stoop so low as to fall for this sort of thing. Then, I explained why.  I handled it calmly, nicely, politely, and maturely.

What happened after that was him doubling down then changing the subject as tho' to misdirect and dodge the issue.

I still replied explaining the errors of his statements.

First of all Syrians and Saudis are nothing alike. They're nowhere near the same. and, this was obviously a divisive propagandist piece using fear and terror to promote bigotry and hatred. Refugees are victims of terrorist's not terrorists themselves. Its a VERY clear distinction.

The only reason you would somehow lop them together, which makes no sense to anyone else in the world, would be if you were an ignorant bigot that was xenophobic, Islamophobic, racist full of hate and prejudice and not actual facts.

Not only that but the graphic leaves out Farook whom was an American. It's a red herring.

On top of that he throws in these statements about the president which have no corrilation at all unless you were a racist.

Now, if you weren't a racist, you wouldn't have racists ideas, you wouldn't have racists opinions, and you wouldn't do, say, think, or promote racist things. Not only that, but if you WERE NOT a racist and u posted racists things and someone addressed the issue as a friend to question it, you would actually listen, and you would feel bad and sorry.

He still kept dodging the issue, or changing the subject, and claimed I didn;t know what I was talking about.

See... when you do that, I prove what I'm talking about. I had a valid argument & point and he didn't.

So, I refuted everything, gave the proof, made the case and showed him up.

I was still being light about it... and originally, I didn't even want to get involved with this until I saw the comment by another person on this post... So, I know what it's like to be the lone person speaking reason when it's unpopular.

Not only that but this guy had been harassing me since he went out of his way to find me on FB in 2012. At first he was more towards the left, but eventually he started veering right wing over time...

The ironic thing was this was a person I personally knew since high school. and, he was nothing like this then, and seemed smarter then, so it put me off that he would do things without thinking...

and YES, this is a white male. It seems that white males in the USA once they've hit the age of 30 seem to go to the dark side and become sexist, racist, and  its starts subtlety, and they're closet racists, until it bubbles up and they become full on. Some are STILL in denial, where as others start to own up to it.... weird that they never "see the light" and "change their ways".


So, once I called addressed it and I restated the points, and called him out on his inconsistency instead of firing back right away SINCE HE HAD NO VALID POINTS NOR ARGUMENTS AND WAS CLEARLY MAKING A FOOL OVER HIMSELF AND WOULDN'T ADMIT WRONG, SEE REASON, AND WAS INCREDIBLY NARROW MINDED ON THE ISSUE, HE STAYED QUIET BECAUSE HE WAS BUSTED... but, he would come back later and try to spin it another way.

Now, this is what annoys the shit out of me!

These idiots want to blame being called racists as "PC Police" and try to say people are too caught up in being politically correct.... then turns it because he wants people to be politically correct to HIM!

political correctness was an old-school conservative approach to counter what was called "the culture war" often to criticize how young people had long hair, used slang, or were too flamboyant and unrestrained like rock stars whom could be rude, or hippies whom had orgies. It was to keep unkept people out of running for office, or to discredit wild things.

 By the 1980s and into the 1990s when it really caught on, political correctness was just being respectful, polite, fair, and hearing different sides of points of view and treating all people and opinions with respect, unless they were out of bounds, then you address the issue and discuss it, and everyone comes to terms with it. The point was to reduce the effect of offending people. It was about fairness.

Well, this guy, whom couldn't care less about being fair to any issue, nor refugees based on prejudice and wild speculations out of cowardice and no facts at all, had the gall to tell me that I wasn't being fair to him, that he'd be fair to me, and tries to spin the whole thing like he was some victim, meanwhile he was BUSTED. He was victimizing Syrian Refugees, through the entire nation of Saudi Arabia under the bus, through the President under the bus based on whatever prejudice he mentally had, and promoted bigotry.

How fair is that to people you don't even know?

Oh, that's right! It isn't fair! It's prejudice!

U have the GALL to want people to treat YOU politically correct and be tolerant of YOUR hatred but u can't tolerate facts, or people different from u?

At this point, I realized he didn't give a shit about the facts, because he was so narrow minded in his hate and vitriol, as tho' somehow his view of himself was better than everyone.

So, I called him out on this.

Either u realize u did something by mistake, and your sorry, ergo you're not actually racist but you did something without thinking it through. Or, you're a closet racist.

So which are you?

He was silent still for a while,

But, then he got angry that I called him out on being a racist or a bigot.

He was angry about this.

So, again, I made the case.
You discriminated on people based on their nationality, race, religion, and prejudice.

Come-on! Ur busted! So, which is it?

U can't refute it when ur guilty.

They get SO ANGRY when you call them out on it.

He kept denying it, dodging it, changing the subject.

He wanted to spin it like it was about freedom of speech.

Well, that's an INTERESTING POINT!
THANK YOU FOR BRINGING IT UP!

Yes. You HAVE the right to FREE SPEECH! Including RACISM and HATE SPEECH. if you WANT to promote racism, and RACIST ideas, that's BECAUSE YOU ARE RACIST. So, you have that right to do that (altho' it's against FB's rules on FB) but if ur promoting racists propaganda then WHY are you upset about owning up to BEING a racist if you ARE ONE?

I told him he needed to "do some soul searching". I told him to let go of his hate and to really self evaluate.

He went quiet again....

Then, he tried to restate is AGAIN but instead of trying to wriggle out of the fact that he's being racists as "free speech" now he was like "well, it's my opinions, and if you don't like it, you can unfriend me."

So, once he did this, the kid gloves were OFF!

Honestly, at this point, I KNEW this guy was not only a Closet Racist, but a FULL ON RACIST & BIGOT, and STILL in DENIAL about it.

Yeah, it's YOUR OPINIONS. The OPINIONS that YOU are SHARING and PROMOTING. They are RACIST, PREJUDICED, BIGOTED, XENOPHOBIC, HATE SPEECH OPINIONS.

WHY would you have racists opinions if ur NOT a racist?

Do non-racists persons have racists opinions????

HELLO????? ANYBODY HOME IN THAT BRAIN OF YOURS?

And, he STILL denied he was a racist after that.

This his little, ignorant lacky bitch suck-up came in to try and do some spin... this chcick CLEARLY had NO IDEA what the hell she was talking about!

So, I ripped into her.

That was SO EASY. TOO easy. What a moron!

She also tried to spin it like it was somehow claiming "free speech" and "opinion" somehow nullifies all racism from being racism...

COMPLETELY ILLOGICAL!


Oh, here's THE MOST COMMON excuses people use to avoid admitting they're racist:

I'm not a racist because:

* I have black (or insert ethnic group here) friends
       (Really, why don't u make ur racists rants n posts SET TO PUBLIC? tag ur "black friends" right now, and let's see what THEY have to say about things you say) 
* I work with diverse people
      (Really? How about u MAKE THIS POST SET TO PUBLIC and tag ur coworkers and ur boss, and lets see what they think.)
* I fucked a person of a different ethnicity than me
* I get a boner when I look at Beyonce' (therefore I can say and do anything racists and I'm scot-free from ever actually being a racists so don't call me that)
* I have Michael Jackson albums (Therefore I can say racists stereotypes without thinking and use derogatory words and statements and it doesn't count as racism)
* I watch Westley Swipes and Will Smith movies (so whenever I say something racist it doesn't count)
* I eat international foods
* Ono of my relatives/ancestors is Native American or Latino (so somehow they can discriminate on anyone and it doesn't count)

Here's another common one to dodge it:

I'm not racist, BUT _______________ (then says something based on stereotypes, fears, prejudice, and is full on racist... however, they might try to either say it in a calm voice like that makes it better, or they're in a WILD LOUD RANT)


I was actually VERY CIVIL when i first started this, but HE started doing "name calling" and then accused me. I called him out on how he now had no moral high ground. But, by the time the gloves came off, I ripped into him, and his lil' bitch with full on snark.

Instead of going the way I had been going, I was incredibly sarcastic. Something he actually THOUGHT he was somehow good at... until I pulled out THE SNARK.

and, when he tried to leverage the relationship as something to use like a bargaining chip to never question anything, I realized I did NOT want to be friends with this person.


But, instead of ME being the one to make that move first, I wanted to see how much he would take. He kept saying he was done talking, or it was a waste of time... and would go quiet, but also adding in a whole bunch on nonsense.

So, when people SAY they're DONE and they won't say/type anymore, or that its a waste of time, I often go full on and refute it in full, because I figure they'll ignore it, but anyone else whom might see it could see the facts, and see how he was behaving.

But, they can;t help it! They read at least some of it, which makes them look even more bad.

I wanted to drive this jerk to either admit he was a racist, or to delete me, because he was too much of a punk ass coward little bitch. usually when people try to threaten ending a relationship its because they're afraid you will, or because they're too cowardly. Honestly, I wondered WHY he hadn't already deleted me because it dragged on for hours...

well, his little bitch put in her -2cents since she's got marbles missing also... she also called me a feminist like somehow that meant something to here, which had NOTHING to do with the topics, and clearly had no clue what a feminist was. This ignorant bint was like: oh just delete her.

So, I called her a hypocrite that defends racism and bigotry, even tho' she denied it and said she was standing up for his free speech and opinions... yeah free speech about racism & bigotry which no one is attacking but calling out ur denial of being a racist.

I don't WANT to be connected with racists. No thank you.


So, I ripped in.

They did the whole ad hominem which is typical of ignorant people whom have no valid argument so they attack you instead. Then they accuse you of being stupid, and not not what your talking about, even tho' you've demonstrated you actually know way more, make valid point and pose question that they won;t even answer.

So, I pinned him on that. Why don't u answer the question?
Just own up to it.

Then, finally, he deleted me.

Bye bitch!



I really don't need these types of persons connected to me. I TRY to talk sense to them. I'm reached out to them. And, I'm really good about it. But, they escalate this to madness!

At this point in my life. I'm just done with them.

I cannot be friends with people whom have the same ideas as the KKK, or Neo Nazis.
It reflects badly upon me.

I suggest you start to call them out as well.


I feel completely RELIEVED to have rid myself of this person....

During that exchange, this punk seemed to refer to himself as some kind of outspoken person. Funny how the internet gives people this false sense of being somehow larger than life, or brave.

His lil' lacky there was like this guy has been outspoken for a long time.

Honestly I knew this punk before she did. I went to HIGH SCHOOL with this punk.

We had the SAME Social Studies classes, the SAME English classes and read all the same novels together.

This punk was NO OUTSPOKEN ANYTHING. He was a mousy, quiet, little guy.

I was the bold person. I got bullied a lot but I always stayed true to myself and dressed how I wanted. This guy would run away from any sign of a conflict.

If this guy was SO BOLD and OUTSPOKEN, then how come I have NO MEMORY of it whatsoever?





That's right! 

BECAUSE IT'S BULLSHIT! 

P-LEASE! 

I think at first he was a a coward to delete me sooner because he often trolled my FB wall.

This guy harassed me a lot the last 2 years.... much of it was subtle punk-ass, shady stuff... pushing that line. Which was probably WHY I put up with him.

He has his ass handed to him earlier this week when some of my friends refuted him while I was working.

Altho' some folks think he had some kind of mis-placed crush issues on me... I seriously doubt that. Let's NOT even go there. I'm kind old now....

Closet Racism & Full On Bigotry: Stupid Shit People on my FB Feed Mindlessly Post

Closet Racism & Full On Bigotry: Stupid Shit People on my FB Feed Mindlessly Post 


How does someone post something like THIS, and still DENY they're a racist????

How do u NOT see how FLAMING RACIST this is?

You HATE Syrians.

You hate the president, and you want to take it out on them, and anyone that agrees with him, or in being a decent human being?

You want to take out your hatred of the president out on innocent refugees? 

It's friggin' mental!

Did you actually think this was clever?
Did you actually pat yourself on the head for this hideous, hateful, extremely racist graphic?


This one is REALLY jaw dropping! I saw this one, and I was FLOORED.

This is FULL ON flaming racist! It's not even subtle. It's EXTREME. This is also what my ex-friend deleted me over, because when I pointed out it was racist, she KNEW she was guilty.

But, instead of admitting it, she did a cowardly move, and bitched about being called a racist, but STILL deleted it ANYWAY.

If you share racist things, RACIST opinions, and agree with them, IT'S BECAUSE YOU ARE A RACIST.

How do you even look at yourself in the mirror after posting this and DENY what a hateful bigot you are?

And, THIS was the other one.

Not only did her husband also a friends I knew since WAY BACK, doubled down and posted this.

This one ALSO includes the dialogue we had.

The guy was SO SMUG about it, that he doubled down and had the gall to say that I was name calling, and ALSO didn't want to be called a Racist.

What closet racists always say: 'I have black friends" so that somehow is a free pass to say everything racist without ever admitting it.

Really? Why don;t u tag ur black friends, and see what they have to say about it?

Oh? You don't want to do that?

Huh... that's WEIRD, I wonder why u won;t do that...

SO, yet again, another lackey shows up spouting complete nonsense.

I'm NOT even making this stuff up.

<---<<< U can see it!

I edited NOTHING except blurred the culprits' names, and avatars.


















This guy STILL thinks he's NOT a Racist.

This one is EVEN MORE BEYOND the pale.

This one apparently asserts some kind of racist stereotype joke.

Why would a person who wasn't a bigot post something like this?

Oh, that's right! If someone wasn't a racist, they would NEVER post something like this!

So, what kind of person would post something like this, then?

Oh, let me think... Gee, I wonder...

BTW, this man is white.

Then we have this one. This is another FLAMING RACIST meme that's PRO GENOCIDE.

It's a racist meme from Allen West.

So, Yes. I DO know whom Allen West is. he's a paid shill for the extremest right. (Sometimes referred to as an "Uncle Tom", which hearkens back to some black slave men whom were like like slave lords whom would oppress his own people because he wanted status or rewards or pay. yes, I'm aware that it's debatable whether it's an appropriate term or not, and is controversial.)

But, let's get this strait. If Allen West Says or does something racist, does that somehow nullify the racism of it?

No. It does not. The color of your skin has nothing to do, logically, with a point if the point is a bigoted, racist one.

To be clear. the Syrians are a DIFFERENT race than ALLEN WEST, a different culture, a different religion, and are a displaced group of a different nationality than that of Allen West. he is also likening THEM, ignorantly and not based on any facts but fear instead, to those whom terrorized them.

AND, it's using multi colored M&Ms.

Think about that.


Then, there was this chick. I honestly forgot how I'd even become friends with this person, but her stuff was all up in my feed....

I thought, maybe this chick was someone I maybe played FB games with several years back...

But, she started going way off the deep end today, and I couldn't make sense of whatever she wrote or shared all week...

Sometimes, she seemed somewhat leftist, and other times right wing... more and more, it was right winger... she also couldn't make up her mind whether she was pro or anti Tea Party.
(I think she has voices in her head kinda deal... :-/ because it reads that way in much of what she wrote on her FB profile)

Was it some kind of medical issue? Like a personality malfunction? If so, I hate to be harshly judgmental.

So, I went to her profile, to check to see who was on the "mutual friends" list. Apparently some of her "mutual friends" with me were crazed nut-jobs. (Sorry... maybe they were medical cases... I'm sorry)

But, then a many of them were "spiritual" types and "New Agers". You know, Joy-joy, have, love, peace, angels, crystals, and all that... (I used to be big time into that when I was in my teens & 20s.) So, I decided to check through more of her posts....

I just don't have the heart to even share those.... *long sigh*

She thinks somehow God is playing chess with everything, and she also worships Ted Cruz. She's out for blood over Trump, and she can't make up her mind on anything....

I dunno.... I feel bad... because to me, it just seemed like her mind was out to lunch... I really don;t want to be harshly judgmental, but I also felt it wasn't a good idea to keep this person as a FB "friend". So, since everyone is all delete-happy, or unfriend happy... I had to can her, and her other nutty friends... :(

It just wasn't working out....

I could SEE she had sane friends on her FB list, but only the nuts were talking to her.... Sorry... maybe I shouldn't call people nuts if they have a medical issue... but, they had to go. :(

 And, this is another one of those typical, insidiously made meme graphics that use typical propagandist tricks. They use this sort of idea to hide their racism & bigotry behind.

This stuff is also totally made up.

Not that there aren't misfortune veterans that are homeless, but the bills to help them won't pass.

This one isn't as brazen as others that strait up condone genocide.

But, I attempted to to have a conversation to rectify this and he, and about 5 other persons after denying they were racists, then told me they condoned genocide.




Genocide is RACISM. 
It's blind hatred.

There was also the whole Michael Moore thing... so, this article comes out about how he's offering up his home to refugees... Sounds great, right?

-but, it might actually be it's not even his own house, but his ex-wife's, and maybe all for show....

So, I don't know what to make of that... it was an odd conversation....




And, that's my screwy reality of my life right now.....

Stupid Shit People on my FB Feed Say: Xenophobia and Full On Racism & Fascism

Xenophobia and Full On Racism & Fascism
(Keep scrolling down)



Story of a Closet Racist (one of several coming out or on the fence)

If my last blog post wasn't alarming and disturbing enough, I think this one will take the taco.

So, I think this is the turning point.... mark this day November the 20th 2015 is the Day Most White Americans turned not only full on RACIST, but also became Pro Fascist Radicals.

What? you think I'm playin'? You think I'm kidding?
You think this is hyperbole?


Here's the deal, if you post and share things which are RACIST, because you AGREE with them, and you LIKE THEM, it's BECAUSE YOU ARE A RACIST.

So, as I start to watch my FB feed become this hideous cesspool of festering HATE of people whom I knew since I was very young, I became quuite concerned.

At first I thought (benefit of the doubt) maybe they're probably just misguided, being reactionary, and acting hysterical without realizing what they're doing....

But, it just became worse and worse... and even women.

So, i asked my friend, because I was concerned. I asked her if she was a racist now.  A simple question. because she posted something incredibly vile and extremely racist.

Then, I scrolled down and saw something else she posted EVEN MORE RACIST that that. they were BOTH full on racist. So, I asked her again: So, when did you become a racist?

I tried to reason with her that maybe she should know what she was doing, and think things through before that.... but, as the posts were flying, it was OBVIOUS she was turned. She was NOW a racist...

If she wasn't racists, wouldn't she just say: Whoops! I guess I got carried away... or, Oh, I hadn't realized that...

This SAME person LOVES to invoke God, country, and Jesus, and just had a baby.


Instead of replying to me, she (like a coward) writes a post about how she was "annoyed" at being called a Racist. Then, she said if people didn't like what she shared to unfriend her. Then at the VERY END, she slaps in a sentence about how "I apologize for the post".

So, which is it? Are you Sorry, in which case you're were being thoughtless and hadn't realized what you did, or are you ANNOYED about being called out for being racist?

So, I went over and asked her. So, which is it?
If you're sharing pro racism rhetoric, are you are aren't you a racist?

because for all I KNOW it COULD be a misunderstanding...

But, her lacky butt-kisser apologist friend comes over and starts spewing the same kind of thing defending her. And says if someone didn't like her opinion you couldn't call her a racist.

But, if you're SPREADING, SHARING, and PROPAGATING RACIST THINGS, and YOU LIKE THOSE THINGS, and you AGREE WITH THOSE THINGS, which are FULL ON RACIST, then WHY are you upset at being CALLED RACIST if you ARE ONE?

Because people whom are NOT RACIST never do this.

But, instead of having a mature, civil discussion, she not only unfriended me, she blocked me.

Why? Because you might ACTUALLY be a closet racist?
 If ur a racist, then own up to it. Because I need to know, and you ought to be up front, and not tip-toe around, because I don;t want to be associated with racists.

But, like a coward spaz, she blocked me.

So, after that her husband whom I've known since WAY BACK does this same cowardly thing, and posts a mindless apology/defence of her. So, I'm go over there and called it out. This time, I posted ALL of the proof to back it up at once. I've not heard a single reply.



Yes, today is THE DAY when I realized that people had been primed and brainwashed for a while, bit by bit, into Xenophobic blind, narrow minded hatred, and cultivated as closet racists for a while... and, this week was the week when it all came out.

Yesterday was a horrific day, because not only are people showing their TRUE COLORS of RACISM FULL ON NOW but also praising the deaths of innocent people.

I NEVER thought I'd LIVE to see such a day.

If you thought THAT was bad... it kept on going the entire day long, and the night, and this morning....

America has sunk into a new low.

Some Samples:


Let's start with this one. this is a popular one with Tea-baggers, gun-nuts, White Supremacists, xenophobes, racists. (Yes, I looked it up, I didn't just make it up.)

This is totally a made-up graphic. it is NOT TRUE AT ALL.

The ONLY reason you wouldn't think to CHECK would be if you're racist, bigoted, xenophobic, or Islamophobic and you LIKE this idea.

Well, it is not true AT ALL. LINK


Do you know how many times I've watched belly dance videos on YouTube from Japan by persons whom were Islamic? I lost count... You can also get Halal food in Japan of many varieties.


And, this marks yet another NEW LOW. Isolationism. Pro Isolationism...

You realized Nixon (A Republican went TO CHINA to undo THEIR Isolationism and open up their borders and markets, right? 















But, wait! It gets worse:

This was POPULAR THEME yesterday, no doubt dreamed up by Right Wing Think tanks.

So, since one group of people (whom you actually don;t care about at all) doesn't get something, you NEVER want to do ANY act of kindness ever again, unless it's in ur own special interests?

You know whom would understand what a civilian refugee's been through in a war, it ought to be a veteran...






There's just no getting around JUST how racist this TRULY IS.

It kinda looks more like a bunch of people going to a soccer stadium... But, what do I know?

Talk about False Equivalency!


NO, it's pretty heartless.... they're refugees after all...

And, yet again with the FALSE EQUIVALENCY.


















And here it comes again:

 Wow. Did you think u were especially CLEVER in reusing this SAME false equivalency over and over again?

Did you post that all like:

Oh, I bet I showed them! 
Yeah! Justified my racism/xenophobia/Islamophobia! 

Did u want a medal or something? ur PROUD of being callus & cruel? Really?















Here's yet another False Equivalency:


See how they try to use your fears against you, to manipulate you? 

This is also SO STRAIT up RACIST. 

It's FLAMING racist. Full on. 







You realize this is terrorist type wording, right? 

WTF r u SO affraid of?

Muslims tend to be pretty harmless....
























And then, there was THIS! It completely takes the taco! 

Strait up Pro Fascism! 

You think I'm making this up?


Have a look:

Completely radicalized, and blinded by hate, fear, prejudice.

If you DON'T know what Fascism is, I IMPLORE you to look it up RIGHT NOW. LINK


Not only that, but these person actually (after denying it it) strait up told me they thought I SHOULD become Islamaphobic, and I'd be better off.

People STRAIT up admitted they ENJOYED the deaths of their children. Including a marine.


So, this is what my life is like on FB.


If anyone HASN'T deleted, blocked, of banned me for speaking up for the right things. Once some folks came out as racists, directly or indirectly, I dumped them.


You'll never drag me down to your level deep in the cesspool....

I'm not a bigot like you, and I never will be.



This day JUST STARTED, too!

I've been up since 6:45 AM....

************

Edit: 2:55 PM

Well, it looks as tho' I'm NOT the only person experiencing this.

Some people, I guess, still DO EXIST that are STILL in touch with their humanity and are ALSO loosing friends left & right to this mindless propaganda of hate, racism, fear, prejudice, and Xenophobia.

I read this article and I was like: OMG! Me too!
I feel EXACTLY the same way! LINK





Stupid Mindless Shit People on my FB Feed Say: Xenophobic Irrational Mindless Prejudices

Stupid Mindless Shit People on my FB Feed Say: 
Xenophobic Irrational Mindless Prejudices
11/14/2015


Ironically, terrorism and massacres happen quite a bit in my country, but people are becoming SO indifferent to it. I've lost count of how many mass shootings went down this year. I happen to recall things happening in Australia and Norway also, but I just can't even keep track mentally of when it happened... Sure, I could search it on google or other search engines, but it's really depressing enough as it is, and I don't have the physical, nor mental energy to do so... I can barely muster up enough to even type & publish this.

So, here we are... yet again.... a sample of the enormously stupid, ignorant, mindless things that persons whom I personally know/knew share, without thinking it through, on FB, based on hate, prejudice, xenophobia, racism,  or as some excuse to play God.


Here's one that's pro isolationism and clearly xenophobic. 
You realize this actually promotes terror and feeds it just by sharing this publicly, right?
No, they should know that, since I remember these persons from the previous century, but have been so prepped n groomed to be reactionary by fear-based propaganda.

"United we stand, divided we fall" right?
Well, this will definitely divide people. It's not like your trying to get together, like a mature, civil human being, talk things out, listen, find the root causes,, find the solutions, hear out the other sides...

Do you have ANY idea how STUPID this sounds? How stupid this looks? How stupid it makes YOU seem?

No, why would you?
You're just reacting mindlessly..... *face-palm*


 Ya can't even make this stuff up. As a young adult i NEVER thought I'd see the day that people would behave like this. And, I'm NOT talking about the terrorists. We had terrorism last century.... but, people didn't react to it in such an insane, mindless way, like this.


And, here's another one....

*face-palm*

If the whole idea of Lady Liberty, a seemingly benevolent symbol of a character based on the artist's mother (is I recall correctly) isn't ridiculous enough to be depicted as waging war (yes, pro war imagery) the lil' blurb written here is even more over the top...

I kind of wonder what Gustave Eiffel would think of this.... 


As the whole event went down last night, i was the very first person in my ENTIRE FB feed to inform anyone about this. And, I was also very active early in the evening. 

So, it's not that I don;t, or didn't care. I actually felt shocked because almost the entire evening it seemed as tho' no one cared at all.... and were very nonchalant... 

It rubbed me very wrong... 

But, by 2AM I did start to see images and positive messages on Instagram, and not just twitter, because Twitter was a blaze with this stuff. But, FB wasn't.

However, this morning, everyone got on board with this, and all started to change their profile photos to red, white, and blue French stripes. 

Yet, what many people began to share was stupid shit like this. 


No one speaking against terrorism.
No one speaking up for peace.

It's not some random thing.

There was a motive behind this. Terrorists don't just do theses things for no reason. 

The West has been invading, bombing, robbing, and killing the east for decades now....

You don't ACTUALLY thinking they "just hate us 'cause they hate us" bull shit, do you? 

You don't ACTUALLY still believe that bullshit about how "they hate us for our freedoms" do you? 

And, you want us to make MORE WARS? 

How have any of these wars worked out so far? 

Oh, that's right! We're worse than ever! And, I'm willing to wager that THIS event is connected some wrong(s) we've done to them, causing these terrorists to go friggin' nuts, and retaliate. 

War doesn't SOLVE problems. and those "freedoms" you think you love will get smothered if you start becoming an isolationist, and lock ourselves in.

Essena O'Neil Social Media Hoax (Thoughtful Blog Post)

This is a story that makes me feel really sad.

I don't know what is going on this person's mind, but she's still a person.

It seems, to me, like she's going through some kind of nervous breakdown melt-down.

She told a number of things about herself, her life, her work, and other people, and framed it as fake, that social media is fake, and that she was surrounded by wealth, she was some kind of star, and that people were miserable.

But, as it started to continue on, and she said she was doing something new or different with her life... it still seemed shady, and things started to come out that either she made it up, or in her mind somehow she re-imagined herself and her life, and her experiences to be NOT anything like what happened in reality....

So, let's begin here:

This happened:

This young model put out a video which seems very genuine, emotional, and seemingly heart-felt, and even cries. 
She alleges so many things.



Then, she changed her Instagram photos with new captions, or alegedly deleted some.
She also claimed she was quitting social media, by starting a new social media website.

There's a total disconnect there... just sayin'...


She also published this with a number of allegations about those whom created it with her:



Following this, people seemed to think that what she was doing was respectable, brave, inspiring, and completely ate it all up as tho' it were totally true, as tho' it were a total expose'.

Meanwhile, there was also a major backlash once she started to gain attention and a lot of praises for doing what she seemed to be doing. That, she was doing something positive, meaningful, and truth-telling...

Several folks speculated or commented on the story:



The story its self seemed to be a little wonky... because she was still doing social media, and flat out said she was manipulating, deceiving, and lying to people.... and accused nameless people of this even worse than herself, and even mentioned a relationship with someone, and that she had been to L.A.

However, it turns out she was not actually exposing truth, but making stuff up...

So, this happened:


Here's another one:



After watching this video, these 2 girls divulged that they were friends with her, and that she never came to L.A. to work, nor on a job, and she had no work visa. She came to L.A. on a vacation, and stayed with THEM for free, that they picked her up, and they it was lots of fun.

They claimed that she met someone whom she dated for a while while there, and then it ended, and after that relationship ended she completely changed and started dissing everyone. They claimed that when she was first there, she was so happy, and "on a high" like she was incredibly joyful.

Well, if there was ONLY this video to go on, you could still say it was their word against her's. And, that would've totally fine.

However...... Essena apparently couldn't keep track of her own lies....

The photo she alleged was hours worth of shooting, and effortless, and edited actually turned out to be a bogus story....




And this is what happened:


The actual photographers of that photo was one of the 2 girls whom were her friends and their brother, at least according to them on their part they believed her to be their friend.

The father of these young people even showed the metadata of actual photographs and the entire photo set.

One thing I often hear about Millennials, and even Americans, is that they are fake, pretentious, immature, cruel, and buffoons. However, these young people, on their own, actually appear to be conducting themselves quite maturely. They seemed to genuinely care about Essena, and even seem to be as gentle about the matter as they can, which makes it seem as tho' inside their hearts they still viewed her as a friend, and even tried to give her the benefit of the doubt because she had a bad breakup. They demonstrated empathy, sympathy, but still firmly and maturely stated their objections.

The father also demonstrated this same kind of kindness, and mature, and showed the proof in a matter of fact way, while still being gentle and kind about it, which makes me also seem to think he also sympathizes with her apparent mental melt down.


I said this story makes me feel very sad, because it really is a sad story.

I've also been to L.A. myself and I can tell you that many people are incredibly kind, and offer to share their couch or sofa, or bed, and often do kind hearted deeds without ever asking for something in return. I've met many kind people in Hollywood, on Labrea, in Century City, Melrose, and Beverly hills, including policemen. Altho' I did have some bad experiences also, on a daily basis it's generally a place where everyone has it very hard, and they all have this shared experience, and many creative people help each other, because it' so expensive, and so difficult to get ahead anywhere there.

It does seem as tho' Essena had a number of things which occurred, like culture shock, being outside of her comfort zone, having to depend on the kindness of others, contemplating whom she really was, and has a traumatic experience since relationship break-ups are very intense.

Perhaps (speculating), she really did have some kind of nervous breakdown, and her psyche/ego reinvented the entire experience and memories into something else that made it easier for her psyche/ego to deal with, so she felt vulnerable, and felt she wanted to lash out and attack.

Perhaps, she realized that she was being ingenuine, and fake, and felt guilty, which she even admitted, but somehow in her mind, in order to cope with it she blamed and projected all of these things she was guilty of onto her friends.


I realize that many people feel angry, upset, and want to shame her. And, in a way she does deserve it... however, I think you need to keep a number of factors in mind, because she is VERY YOUNG, and clearly not as mature as her friends, and she's just had a very traumatic experience. So, it's not quite as black & white as she's some kind of evil being.... she screwed up. She screwed up big time.

In my country we call this "burning your bridges".
You really DON'T want to do that unless there's an absolute reason to do so.... but, here it appears that she's burning the bride while she's STILL ON THE BRIDGE.

I think there is so much to learn from this. Clearly just being a vegan didn't make her a great person, because she is still stuck in the quicksand of her own making, and it's not good. But, as it seems from the perspectives so far that the other persons were far more genuine, and good or kind hearted.

Many persons don't know how to deal with someone whom is truly kind, nice, and genuine, and I myself have also been attacked by persons I went above & beyond, and far out of my way to help because I cared. Somehow, this seems to make their psyche/ego feel threatened, even tho' their was no reason to be, because they felt guilty or inadequate and tried to measure up somehow, which is the major pitfall of meritocracy.  Always feeling u need to measure up to something.

Altho' in my heart I do feel sorry for these persons, and take pity on them, I don't want to say this in a dismissive way as to put them down.

Sometimes we as human beings have "a human failing" or a flaw.
It doesn't mean we can't overcome, correct, or learn from them...

I would however, hate to see this person, Essena hurt herself over this terrible mistake.

I do hope she walks the path of a more genuine life, but not one started based on premises of lies and deceit. And, again, I truly don't want to pick on her.

Sometimes people catch a cold, and they get sick, and they need to get well... maybe it's just like that. She needs to heal, and get well....

But, I don't think berating her is the right thing to do.


All of these persons whom came out about it actually still seem to be a friend in their hearts to this girl, and somehow I'd like to believe that they'd actually forgive her, because they seemed to want to talk it out with her. That's VERY mature, and responsible, and the civil thing to do. I just can't see those persons as hateful or even resentful at all, and Essena clearly hurt them. I they did say she should apologize to them, and they were in the right.

Essena, maybe you should talk it out with your friends whom really seem to have cared about you.
Maybe what you really need is some very good medical help and therapy to get through all of this.
Maybe it really doesn't need to be this bad.

Maybe the world really isn't that bad.

Maybe you could fix it if you tried.

I think, deep down inside, you'd probably feel happier if you did try to make amends for this mistake.

I hope you can truly work this out, because everything is swirling down a drain right now....


Won't you try to heal it?

Stupid Mindless Shit People on my FB Feed Say: Political Correctness Haters Hate it When ur NOT PC to THEM

OK, here's the kinds of nuttery that goes on in my feed on FB:

Take this one for example:


Apparently, these types of persons allege to HATE "political correctness" but not when it's about them.

Whenever its about Bill Cosby, Their guns, their made-up beliefs about pride in the Confederate Flags, how DARE u not be politically correct TO THEM!

Or, when it's about actual, factual things like Climate Change or climate science, and they are acting like buffoons and even COME AFTER YOU to pick a fight. Suddenly, they want "all sides to be presented" because that would "politically correct".... and everyone should get along, and let them present made-up stuff as fact....



Planet Fitness $10 Sham

This is my informative post to let people know about the misleading promotions and false advertising, that altho' is illegal, still goes on in this nation (USA).

Buyer Beware.

So, this is what the main promotion on the website looks like.

There are also commercials circulating out there (which is how I know of it)   that tell you it's $10 a month, a week for free, to try it, and no commitment. It's a strait-up lie, and false advertising.

It is NOT $10, and there IS A FORCED COMMITMENT.

And, they won't let you do anything UNTIL YOU PAY IT.



They don't ACTUALLY want my $10, they want to sign up a sucker and exploit you with fees.

If the price IS NOT $10, and the actual PROMOTION is NOT $10, then THAT IS FRAUD. Also known as "selective disclosure" i.e. FRAUD. Ergo, it's illegal.

Just advertise the ACTUAL PRICE.

* Edit: 11/13/2015
Another Follow-up:


 Planet Fitness, in writing, fully admitting the engage in deceptive "selective disclosure" advertising, and ALSO conduct business illegally, by forcing member to pay ONLY with credit/debit cards.
Dollar bills, and coins are "LEGAL TENDER", so you CANNOT REFUSE THEM. You CAN refuse credit cards from companies you don't do business with, or even if you do not accept credit cards on the basis of not having a credit card machine, and you may also refuse accepting checks, but you cannot refuse customers/consumers from paying in cash at all.

Anyone that has EVER been in business for them self, including myself, KNOWS THIS.



























Hi Kandice, we checked with the Weymouth location to confirm the different membership options and their prices at sign-up. They currently have two options, one for the Black Card and one for $10/month. The Black Card membership is currently $19.99 with no start-up fee and no-commitment. The $10/month membership has a $10 start-up fee and is also no-commitment meaning you can cancel any time without paying a cancellation fee. That means if you wanted to sign-up for the $10/month membership, you'd be required to pay $10 plus a prorated monthly fee of $1.64, which would be a total of $11.64 at sign-up. You can view both membership options here: planetfitness.com/offers/174. To clarify, the memberships are billed through a checking account and automatically withdrawn on or around the 17th of each month. We do not accept cash for monthly dues at this time but you may pay the start-up fee in cash. We hope this helps clear up any misunderstandings.

The Kinds of Novels We Read in Public School (USA)

Intro:

I was born in 1979, and altho' I'd gone to several public schools in New Jersey, and Pennsylvania in the 20th Century (1980s-1990s) the majority of my education took place in Mount Laurel schools, and in Medford. Durring the 1980s there was major neighborhood development boom, and thus as population boom, in which several schools were built, rebuilt, and more added to cope with the rising population of out-of-state migrating and multiplying yuppies.

I must say, in the 20th century there was a major statistic about the youth of that nation in which most American children DID NOT READ, and mostly watched television and eventually the statistic became playing video games.

As a kid, I HATED to read. I loved books as a little kid, because I loved art, and pictures, but by 2nd grade books became novels AKA "chapter books" and no pictures, and I liked visuals. I also LOVED music, and MTV was one of my favorite things to watch in the early 1980s!

I have a type of dyslexia which couldn't be tested for since I was a child prodigy artist, and all the tests were visual which I passed with flying colors, and the doctors thought I was just 'learning disabled". They also didn't know what ADD was back then, and there are several "types" of ADD, which I also have. However, I must say having ADD isn't necessarily a disability at all, and because of it i can do things others have trouble with.

Due to the statistic of American children not reading all presidents of my childhood would often be heard mentioning this statistic. So, my mom often did things to try and be a good parent to encourage our literacy. She often got "Highlights" which was a child magazine with lots of pictures, and I would actually read much of it, even tho' I told people I hated to read... and the "book orders" and book fairs" also sold books..... which I actually would read.

Books that I would actually read, were usually Halloween books. Weird huh? I was also religious in the 1980s, but we were allowed to do secular things like go Trick-or-treating, watch MTV, watch Arnold Schwartzenegger movies, Rated R films WITH our parents, and almost anything Halloween, so long as it wasn't devils. My favorite book to read on my own was "Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark" which ended up becoming a series of books. I was totally fascinated by the weird folklore stories, poems, songs, and weird artwork, and would read the book over & over. I just couldn't stop reading it. Also, I noticed that this book was popular not just with boys, but also with girls also.

So, I would look for ANY other books pessimal to that book, with many ghost stories, and folklore tales, urban legends, and so on. But, I couldn't tell anyone at church i read those things, because I would get lectured to, everyone would get upset, pry into my life, then everyone would "pray over me" or think I was being possessed, or "the devil is tempting you", and even anoint my head with oil. (I could tell several of those kind of stories, you have no idea.)

We were also told that somehow reading comic books would turn you into a criminal... until comic books got turned into movies like Batman, or TV shows like X-MEN or Spider Man, I and my brother became obsessed with comic books. I LOVED EVERYTHING by MARVEL COMICS! I even had my own subscriptions to X-MEN, Excalibur, Gargoyles, and would buy stuff from catalogs with my allowance money, or at the comic book/baseball cards shop. Comics in the 1990s were very much like Star trek in that they often had ethics, and political science in them, as well as science, and I LOVE ALL OF THOSE THINGS.

Then, by 1994 we got our first computer, which was a Macintosh Power PC 6200 (Apple Computer). It was AWESOME! I truly feel that getting a computer not only improved my grades, but also my world view, my education, and especially my literacy, because then I was reading all the time. I can clearly see a difference in my grades at school just by doing that one thing: getting a computer.

I actually read slower than most people because the muscles in my eyes that most people use to read with I use to actually see. The eye doctors told me they didn't understand how I could even be an artist, or even see details, but I'm a very detailed artist, and won many awards, prizes, money, and scholarships as a young child. I also don't always test very well in standardized tests. And, I am far-sighted. (I see things better far away than near my face.) But, as an adult my eyesight often tested better than average. I have no idea why.

Other books that were wildly popular with kinds in elementary school that we had to sign up on a waiting list just to borrow were poetry books:

A Light In The Attic
Where The Sidewalk Ends

These books were so incredibly popular with ALL BOYS in EVERY elementary school I went to that more than half of them got them for  Christmas or Hanuka by the 5th grade. I didn't know ANY kid that DIDN'T like those books. They were just THAT GOOD!

Things that America used to do to encourage my generation to read was all kinds of things. Pizza hut used to have something called "Book It" which you could get free pizzas, and prizes just for reading books, and recording how much, and how often you read, as well as what you read. I LOVED FREE PIZZA so I often read every day when Book It was happening! In fact, ANY TIME any school I went to had some kind of prize contest thingy or program for reading books I always did them!

I read magazines, news papers, tabloids, novels, comics, articles, and even counted my homework. I also read the Bible, and even had a free copy of The Book of Mormon, which my Aunt threw away once she saw me reading it into the trashcan... and then prayed over top of me.

Sometimes I had so many vouchers for free pizzas I didn't even use them all, and gave some to my cousin, or neighbors. I just wanted prizes! MORE! MORE! MORE! I would read on the bus, read when i got home from school, on the weekend, etc. Just not is X-FILES or Star Trek was on TV, or my favorite cartoons... but as soon as those were over: BOOK IT! 

BTW: A favorite magazine of mine to read was Disney Adventures

The Kinds of Novels We Read in Public School (USA)

 When you're a kid, growing up can be hard in it's own ways, and many adults forget that. It's hard enough dealing with body changes, social pressures, and then suddenly puberty.... so, I have NO IDEA why teachers would choose books for us to read that were JUST AWFUL and DEPRESSING!

The book I HATED reading THE MOST in elementary school was this stupid, depressing novel called "Pinballs". I HATED this book, HATED the story, HATED the characters, and HATED the names of the characters also! My classmates called this the "bratty children book". Unfortunately some kids had to read this book several times when they switched teachers, or switched schools, which often happened year to year due to rising population.

Meanwhile, other classes got to read great books, which I could overhear with my super sensitive hearing through the windows like "Indian In the Cupboard" or ultra lucky ANY of the "Bunnicula" series of novels! But, no... not me... I got put in the classes with the other ADD kids reading Pinballs.*rolls eyes*
And, some kids even got to read Mark Twain, Anne Frank, or stories about the Underground Railroad people escaping to freedom! That is SO UNFAIR! How come my class never got to read awesome stuff like that? (I know because I could hear them reading it in the other classrooms through the windows or walls, since I have sensitive hearing and could easily get distracted.)

I remember asking our teachers: Why do you always make us read books about immature brat characters? -and all the other girls were like: Yeah! How come?

But, luckily, there was that one time when we got to read "My Side of the Mountain" which was THE ONLY novel in MY ENTIRE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL EXPERIENCE that I ACTUALLY LOVED! That was it... no other good books. Just that one.

And THAT was actually a REALLY GOOD ONE! Every time we would read it together as a class, we actually would take turns reading it together, instead of just the teacher reading it, and even the naughty fidgety boys would actually pay attention and read it, and behave. NO graffiti on the desks, no spit balls. THEY WOULD ACTUALLY READ IT AND BE INVOLVED. We all even got decent grades on the tests about the book as well.

Then, Middle School came.... and more stupid, depressing novels about misbehaving brats with bad attitudes... the one I HATED THE MOST was this book called "Lord of The Flies". A book about prejudiced, bigoted boy brats, that try to kill each other, turn into raving lunatic terrorist killers, then all cry like babies at the end. We also, often had to read Shakespeare which often had loads of racism, antisemitism, and sexism in them, like Merchants of Venice, Romeo And Juliet, Macbeth, and The Taming of The Shrew. Definitely ALL the kinds of things that all puberty stricken teens will HATE.

I don't know why we never read the Sonnets of Shakespeare in school, because those were GOOD.

Most of the books were were forced to read, I was fortunate enough to NOT be forced to re-read them again with ANOTHER teacher like many kids often ended up being put through. They were usually THE SAME THING depressing tragic stories, nothing exciting, VERY EMO. Maybe if we were LUCKY we could get short stories by Arthur C. Clark or Mark Twain which were ALWAYS GOOD! I overheard some kids reading stories about the Civil War... but, not in my classes...

Then there was my FAVORITE BOOK I EVER READ! EVER!

Moby Dick

Originally, I DID NOT WANT TO READ IT. In the 1980s "Save The Whales" was a major thing! My mom was a an avid Green Peace subscriber/supporter/activist, and a member of the WWF, and even PBS. Anti-whaling was also taught in elementary school. So, i was REALLY not keen on EVER reading about whalers, or whaling, at all... plus, even tho' the version we read was like an abridged-abridged-abridged version, it was almost 2 inches thick.

I remember when we first started reading it, and not wanting to read it, but recalling how happy the teacher was about us reading it.

But, from the start it really hooks you in (pun intended). It has lots of horror elements to it, like Halloween-ish stories. There's lots of foreshadowing and build-up tension. What I also liked about it was that it mentioned religious cultural stuff from the time period. Captain Ahab has a similar names to an evil guy in The Bible, also named Ahab. And, when the character Queequeg was introduced it was very scary, and plays on your fears, and the apprehension of the main character Ishmael (also a Bible name).

Even tho' all the characters were men, and they were whalers there were so many things I learned about nautical stuff and the world culture of the time period by reading it. Even the name of the ship was the Pequod which was a Native American Tribe.

We first started to read the book sometime around November or December and finished reading it before May.

Originally, I didn't want any of my friends to know we were reading that book, because it was about whalers. But, one of my friends, Beth, found out we were reading it and was so jealous! She said, "You are SO LUCKY! You get to read a classic novel! That is so unfair!"

Next thing I knew, the other girls asked me what it was about! I told them it was about the time period when people used to do whaling in New England and went around the world, and portrayed the culture of the time, including world religions and cultures, and was scary like a horror novel. Of course people were freaked out about having to read about whalers, but when I told them it was actually good, and it was kinda Halloween-ish no one shunned me. Beth would ask me which parts we were on throughout the year.

After we'd finished that book, the teacher borrow various so-called unabridged versions of the original book to us, including the full unabridged complete version from the public library. It was so thick that I wondered how they even managed to print such a novel back when it was originally written.

To this day, THAT was THE BEST BOOK I EVER READ in public school in my ENTIRE LIFE!


As for high school, yes books were often tragic, disturbing, or depressing, but they would actually at least have some kind of more meaningful moral to them. Many people tell me that Lord of The Flies did... but, I have no recollection of any such moral ever being taught, engaged in conversation about, just take the test, and write a small essay. I HATED IT!

I think of all the books we read in High School my favorite was a book called "Animal Farm". Even tho' it was a sad, depressing, tragic ending LIKE ALL public school novels, it actually taught several things. It was mostly a metaphor of how Communism was corrupted and changed into tyranny and subjugation. "Pigs", "Dogs" and how the laws were rewritten over time. We also had really good English teachers in high school, whom LOVED English and literature.

Other novels we read were The Pearl (Steinbeck) which altho' was tragic was really good. Another book we had to read by Steinbeck was "Of Mice And Men" which I had to read actually twice. I really didn't like that book at all, but I did understand the complexity of the issues in the novel. And, let's not forget To Kill a Mockingbird, a tragic story about racism and injustice on public display. That was actually well written and made its points clear, but it was so disheartening to read, and too upsetting as a teenager.

We read a play called "The Crucible" which was altho' was about the Salem witch trails it was also a social commentary on McCarthism. I had to read that one twice in High School with different teachers. After that we read some kind of cheesy mystery novels like one about a tennis player on the witness protection program. It sucked. I hated it...

I met some people that said they got to read The Catcher in the Rye, but I never got to be so lucky... I saw it in a Target one time in Los Angeles and read many parts of it, which has a really unique writing style. Oh well...

**********************

Outro:

I used to hate books, and used to look forward to the future when trees wouldn't be chopped down, and it would all be digital... but, now that that has come true, I miss reading paper books. They don't need batteries, and the have a look and feeling that digital PDFs lack. PDFs also hurt my eyes.

I guess I sound like Captain Jean-Luc Picard, huh?

By the time I was a teenager the stuff I mostly read, by choice, if I was spending my own cash, other than on comics and magazines, would always be Fantasy novels, especially about unicorns, which were more rare when I was a kid, or sometimes dragons. Or, I would read books about paranormal topics like UFOs, Big Foot, Sasquatch, Yettie (and no they are NOT the same), or Ghosts.

And, if that wasn't weird enough, because I guess I really liked weird stuff, I would read all kinds of New Age, Occult, Spiritual, or Inspirational. I also collected books about Astrology, and Near Death experiences, or Dream Interpretation stuffs.

Or, I would read stuff about science. really dry stuff like Gray's Anatomy (because I liked art and biology). Yes, I actually read it. I've read several parts several times, and it also feel apart because it's very heavy and thick. Several parts I've totally forgotten about, like the lymphatic circulatory system, because I think I read it when I was a sophomore in high school... I also had a subscription to Popular Science at one point, which I often read in the bathroom. And, I would also read Popular Mechanics at the dentist office. One time the dentist came out and asked me if I wanted to read something else because he actually had other magazines somewhere, and I was like: Huh? Why?

I think he meant he thought I wanted to read a teen or beauty magazine... but, I already had several of those at home.

I actually had several beauty magazines as a teenager. I had a Subscription to YM, Seventeen, and a few others... they WOULD actually write about teen girl subjects, but it was full of ads, that after a while there was barely anything to read, just stuff trying to be sold to you.

Also, back then, I didn't know that the girls in the magazines were airbrushed, or altered. So, I often felt like I was ugly, or too fat, and didn't understand that women were supposed to be curvy.

Thinking back, there were so many mixed messages back then in those magazines. So many articles about bulimia, anorexia, and 'love your body" or "we should talk about body image" meanwhile the ads were all boney girls with boy-shaped bodies and spindly legs, or scrawny girls with fake boobs.

Sticking with BOTH my interests in ART and SCIENCE (especially anatomy) helped me to break free from that crap. When I look at images of myself when I was 17/18 which was the slimmest I ever was, I always used to think I was just so fat. Even when I look at them now, that "mind demon" is still there, faintly. But, I just never realized I was just a curvy female. When I studied life drawing in college several times per week, and would go to the Philadelphia Art Museum I would realize that women are just round.

So, I often would speak about this while I was in college. Many girls, and also guys, actually told me years later they were so glad I used to say that because they could put into words what no one else was saying. I often discussed this topic with my daughter, my niece, when I was a Girl Scout Leader, and on social media. I'm so glad that that the views of feminine beauty have changed.

And, as for the topic of reading, I'm sure there are probably many things out there, now on this subject... so I don't think I need to say anything else about it.

The Kinds of Brainwashed Bigotry in My Daily Facebook Feed (Americans)

The Kinds of Brainwashed Bigotry in My Daily Facebook Feed (Americans)

SCROLL DOWN TO THE BOTTOM TO SEE SOME SAMPLES

It's the year 2015, and Facebook NOW is probably my least favorite social media venue out there.

Why?

because of just how BRAINWASHED and Psychotic people have become.

The SAME EXACT people whom I used to socialize with daily, that I knew since high school, childhood, college, or around that time. Generation X, and all that. people whom once self professed to being "spiritual not religious", and "open minded". The persons whom used to say "I'll never be like THOSE people!"

Remember back in 2008? "Hope" and "Change", or "Change You Can Believe In", all Obama supporters, Obama voters... and yeah, I get it, Obama broke his promises... But, the SAME people that were scared about GW Bush, and made fun of the John McCaine crazy base. Folks that watched The Daily Show, The Matrix, Fight Club, Saturday Night Live, and participated in social media movements like the precursors to 'Occupy Wall Street", and "The Arab Spring", whether Egypt, Iran, and several other protests, like Spain.

Back then, I was rather popular... and no, I'm not hurt because I'm on any sort of popularity withdrawal crash n burn... no, I've been in and out of online fame so many times, I couldn't care less.

It used to be the stupid senile folks in the baby boomer demographics that did the stupid stuff, about half of the time, but t some point they just got so suckered into the brainwashing. I could tell that facebook was filtering things before it came out.

This exact same "free" social media venue was once proudly a platform to organize, set things strait, inform, and mobilize people, or explain things.... now, it's just a tool to either brainwash or divide people.

Now, the folks in my generation are just as brainwashed. The young people also no longer come to facebook. Yes, that means I'm getting old.

My daily feed consists of racism, militant propaganda, pro violence, sexism, greed, snide indifference, and hate. Gone are the days when yuppies would show off their brand new brand name gadgets, or name brand high end purses and shoes, or stereo equipment.

No. Now people boast about who can be more racist, and show off their new guns. Plural.
People whom I'd once known to be smart, intelligent, level headed and open minded... now sucked into these made-up hyper religiosity, and pro war faux patriotism unquestioning.

They boast about how snide they are to berate the powerless, the homeless, the people on food stamps, and most especially those whom dis black folks, especially victims, yet are in total denial about being racist. They attract rape victims, not just woman now, but also male victims. They boast about how brutalizing children (corporal punishment) is just so great "and I turned out just fine" sort of come-backs. No, ya didn't turn out fine, you think it's OK to assault and batter a child, and you use the Bible to convince yourself its fine even tho' you actually never read the scriptures at all.

And you think that I AM THE CRAZY PERSON?
You think that I AM THE ANGRY PERSON? The "NEGATIVE PERSON"?

The same folks wriggle out of any sensible discussion, and act as tho' I'm somehow attacking them, when they avoid answering simple legit questions.... Gee.... I can't imagine why...

Every day is a reminder that not only am I an unloved person, but they also don't actually even love themselves... I've sat back and watched people loose their friggin' MINDS! Just, off their rockers! These were people I knew, loved, cared about...

-and sure, there were some folks that either deleted/unfriended me, or even those whom up and targeted me, every friggin' day with full on malice, just to see what I would do.... and after a year or more of that, sure, I had to give them the ax. (metaphorically, I mean)

Then, when people i knew were really down on their luck, life, existence, illness, grief, and more, who swoops in? The religious vultures... altho' in their mind, they don;t view themselves that way. They are "doing God's work" in their minds, just like they were brainwashed to do, and carry out. And, that was how it started.... so, these seemingly sweet, helpful religious folks, whom pray over you (and prey on you) of give you some food, and exploit people whom I loved repeating over and over their propagandist lines, like a move out of the playbook of Bolsheviks, and the Nicene Creed, they leverage the poor downtrodden person whom is helpless, weak, unsupported, and in deep need, and start to "convert" (brainwash) their victim.

Oh, look how good we have been to you. God has brought us to you. No one cares about you but us. and, the never ending barrage of the proselytizing solicitation.

Look, I'm partially Native American,so I KNOW how these tactics work. I had to write reports about this stuff in Middle School, and High School, as well.

Then, once you've been assimilated, your own uniqueness can become manipulated, your actions can be altered, shaped, changed, formed....

Not only that, but there's the religious fads as well... It is so fake, and persons whom I KNOW personally, and they are just faking. I gag, or choke when I see this stuff.


This has all happened slowly over time, bit by bit, and I started to notice it around 2011 and 2012.

By 2013 and 2014 it just became overwhelming. I recall just being so baffled at this all. HOW CAN THIS BE?

What, pray tell, has happened to EVERYONE?

Nice people were now villains. Bosses I once had looked up to and were responsible upstanding adults, and sensible were now like maniacs on this hegemony racist stint, and anti-intellectual.

I thought: Is this real? Is this actually happening?

Persons whom had once been very friendly and funny, now tagged me to pick fights with me. And, anything I would say that was a well made point or case meant nothing to them because why???? because I didn't have a PAYCHECK? I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP!

If I wasn't in a Union I could somehow NOT EVER BE CORRECT ABOUT ANYTHING about unions, even if, and WHEN, I showed proof... nope... And, when calling this out, they're like: "Huh?"

So, then, what was I supposed to do? Not have friends at all anymore?

I'm so incredibly lonely, you have no idea. and THAT is NOT healthy.


Nothing intelligent, altruistic, nor sensible thing I had to contribute was of any interest to anyone... just my cleavage... hence, I don't often show myself other than my head, if at all....


Well, 2015 is the mother-load of all out Prejudice and HATE.


Here's one I saw many times scrolling through my feed in mid-March.


ATTACKING THE POWERLESS

This one equates the the needy to animals, by attacking the POWERLESS, and even has a NAZI-like eugenics flare at the end.

These were even shared by persons I knew in high school whom had the audacity to call themselves "pro-life".
If i went back in time and showed their teenaged self this, they wouldn't believe me that their future self would be so heartless, snide and racist.

"I'll NEVER BE LIKE THOSE PEOPLE!" they said.
Oh really? Got the evidence RIGHT HERE!
It gets worse I know folks whom shared these whom MANY TIMES benefited from social programs, tax payer funding, and social services...

It's strait of bigotry, hypocrisy, and ignorance.

Here's another one. 

This one just about crushed me. I lost track of how many of these I saw on my Facebook feed:

This one gets passed around with this snide, smug, prejudice.... you know, this was a money making scheme by a crooked Governor, right? I'm sure you SHOULD know, because I'd been sharing the articles about it FOR YEARS, and even got "LIKES" klicks on them by these SAME individuals...

This is yet another INCREDIBLY Racist one. Some people are MORONS, and some folks are just willfully malicious. This whole "Welfare Queen" myth came from Reagan in the 80s, and Clinton cracked down on so many trumped up phony issues making it so incredibly difficult just to get ANY social service.

Really, YOU earned my Food Stamps? Fuck you!
I ran my own businesses several times over, and I paid taxes you've never even heard of. I PAID MY TAXES, and you don't even know the difference between a subprime mortgage debacle and a derivative naked swap, a Depression VS. a Recession!

You're just punitively maniacal, vice driven, malicious bullies hiding behind a paycheck and status "symbols". You're now "just another brick in the wall".

Congratulations! NOT! 


Oh, and with THAT, I have one FINAL thing to say:


Back when the USA had a strong Middle Class, everyone took it for granted what wealth really was. The Middle Class was wealth, but people confused the money with the wealth.

When you have so much, you just GIVE, GIVE, GIVE, GIVE and it's like nothing, because you have so much. When I lived in China, people used to tell stories about how kind and GENEROUS Americans and "People From The West" were. Out currencies were worth more, and we had a higher standard of living.


Well, right now, the wealthiest nations with the wealthiest citizens are Islamic ones. Ever heard of Saudi Arabia? if you actually knew ANYTHING about Saudis, they generally don't work, and get paid government salary based on oil revenue. A big Welfare nation, just like many Islamic nations live. I'm personally fed up with Ismalaphobia, and Islamaphobic memes that people repeat over and over, because Saudis, in my own experience were very nice folks.

Well, how about this:


Oh, and guess what!
