“Consensual Rape?” No such thing.

Yesterday, on the Senate floor, a former police officer & now Republican State Rep, Barry Hovis (white middle aged man), coined this term: “Consensual rape”  regarding the new recent legislation to BAN ABORTION. Wow. These words are a complete contradiction! Not to mention tone deaf to the utmost degree.

This new Abortion Law will criminalize abortion even in incest & rape cases. This man seems to think that MOST RAPES are DATE RAPES & he had the ignorant nerve to call date rape: “consensual rape.”

We as a nation DIGRESS. First it is one step forward with the “MeToo” movement. And now it is TWO STEPS BACK. “Consensual Rape???? Really?? Not cool, U.S. legislators & several states in this unbelievable unconstitutional move to steal a woman’s right to her body. What has this America we live in, come to? I am beginning to be not so proud of living here anymore. I am so utterly disappointed in the part of our American nation & culture that is so unevolved & reckless. Doesn’t anybody remember the bloody back ally coat hanger days?

What ever happened to the separation of Church & State? And, please don’t try use the card: “SCIENCE proves that life begins at conception.” That still doesn’t change a woman’s right to personal autonomy wherefore she has the first & last say in her own moral aptitude regarding her womb.

“Separation of church and state” is paraphrased from Thomas Jefferson and used by others in expressing an understanding of the intent and function of the Establishment Clause and Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution which reads: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”  —Online source

“Things that are truly pro-life:
– abolishing the death penalty
– vastly improved prenatal care
– universal health care
– vaccinations
– better gun laws

Things that are deeply hateful & not at all pro-life:
– this whole fucking travesty of a misogynistic Georgia abortion law”

Crown of Thorns: Let it burn!

48336209_303

With all due respect, I pay my deepest regard for the loss incurred by the Cathedral of Notre Dame fire. Parisians have my deepest condolences. I traveled to Paris once in my life at age 24. I paid a visit to this sacred tourist attraction. When I entered the Church, I was in awe of its ancient charm & magnificence. I couldn’t help but notice the depth of the ceilings, & I became very anxious. I began wondering intently about how  awesome the acoustics might sound, so I immediately began to drum up the courage to sing.

fixedw_large_4x

I was a bohemian musician back in those days, who was pretty brazen to say the least. Like no one was watching, I belted out a loud melodious stream of consciousness that seemed to echo to the high Heavens. I didn’t care who was paying attention, I knew I had only this once in a lifetime, fleeting opportunity. My voice echoed immensely bouncing off the reverberating antiquated cathedral ceilings that seemed to rattle the stained glass. “I got to sing in the Cathedral of Notre Dame,” I thought! “Super rad, wait til I tell all my friends!”

So, it’s not like I don’t understand the beautiful, timeless grace this remarkable space embodied. The Cathedral of Notre Dame was nothing less than a gorgeous Gothic gem shrouded in mystique. I get it. I’m a fan.

However…

With regard to the Cathedral’s significant damage, can someone tell me how ONE BILLION DOLLARS was raised so fast? In honor of the rebuilding process, the Cathedral’s “Go Fund Me” page (if they had one) was on fire too. The French president, Emmanuel Macron, claims it will allegedly take an ADDITIONAL ONE BILLION DOLLARS to complete the 5-10 year job. Lets do the math, shall we? Thats, ummm…. yes!

TWO BILLION DOLLARS.

TWO BILLION DOLLARS to rebuild an old church? What about all the poor, homeless, sick or dying, starving people that a CHURCH is actually SUPPOSED TO clothe, feed & shelter? What about what a church STANDS FOR? Doesn’t a church aspire to expand love, peace, compassion, healing, & nourishment?

Who gives a flying rats ass about a fucking spire, when you have thousands of human people, children & animals suffering across this fuckin’ unbalanced planet?

How did the world community raise ONE BILLION dollars in just 3 days for a fucking building?

The world community should really do some soul searching here. The French president & the congregation & ministry OF THE NOTRE DAME CHURCH… should think hard about how they decide to spend that ONE BILLION OR TWO.

What would Jesus do… you ask?

Feed, clothe, shelter, spread that wealth among the people who need it everywhere. Fund programs, fund causes, finance missionary endeavors to save the Planet & the people in it.

ONE BILLION DOLLARS is ALOT of money. TWO BILLION DOLLARS could feed everyone on this Earth for the next 5 years, probably.

I don’t disagree with the rebuilding of a sacred iconic monument said to have housed Jesus’ crown of thorns. But, think about it… that crown of thorns, which was salvaged BTW, is a symbol of SUFFERING. That crown of thorns was maliciously placed on Jesus’ head to humiliate him, debase his character of love, peace & unity & shame everything godly & good.

“Priest Jean-Marc Fournier is credited with dashing into the burning Notre Dame Cathedral on Monday to save its most sacred relic.” —nypost.com

He was praised as a hero, for God’s sake, for SAVING an outdated, afflicted, thorny, sinner crown that essentially added insult to injury to the great Jesus Christ at his weakest hour. I would have LET IT BURN!! LET IT BURN!!!!! And let all that horrible shit that it represents… go up in flames with it!

Good thing I live in America & I have the freedom to speak the TRUTH> #grateful

“Spire, in architecture, steeply pointed pyramidal or conical termination to a tower. In its mature Gothic development, the spire was an elongated, slender form that was a spectacular visual culmination of the building as well as a symbol of the heavenly aspirations of pious medieval men.” —www.britannica.com

Did you hear that?? The spire is: THE SYMBOL OF THE HEAVENLY ASPIRATIONS OF PIOUS MEDIEVAL MEN.

Universal Law states: that outer circumstances, experiences & events reflect the state of the inner sanctity of man.

Which means, that the symbolic spire that burned up in flames & came crashing to the ground, was also a reflection of man’s HEAVENLY ASPIRATIONS going up in flames as well. The PIOUS MAN won, for all intents & purposes, for… THE CROWN OF THORNS (pious man) was SAVED!! What a shame. Damn.

My bad, maybe we should indeed care about the fucking spire. But in a totally different way.

My take on it? If that man thinks that it was so noble to SAVE that creepy haunted hoodoo relic with bad mojo… then going forward, he should rightfully use that GIANT LUMP SUM of ONE BILLION DOLLARS to help SAVE HUMANITY at large. The PIOUS MAN cannot be allowed to continue to win. This NOTRE DAME FIRE, essentially, was a BIG FAT symbolic WAKE UP CALL, my friends. And, how fitting… it happened in front of the whole wide world. Hmmmm.

Everything happens for a reason. Behind destruction, there is a GIFT. That gift in this case, you ask? An instant ONE BILLION DOLLARS. Makes sense, doesn’t it? I’m not being unreasonable. There are hidden meanings & analogies all over the damn place, here. Take off the blinders.

Keep it up, delusional people who care more about false idols than the TRUE MEANING behind them. Lest I remind you all, that KARMA IS A BITCH. She will renovate your ass, way more masterfully than any renovation of a damn building. And, that’s a promise.

Think it through, Papal people & those in office… CHOOSE WISELY.

The BOOMERANG is REAL.

Namaste,

Chapter 2: The Grand Old Politico

20190109_234834 (1)

I welcome you to the rough draft of the second chapter from my newest book which is due for release in just weeks. Fondly named>>>>

The Decline of Civility: How to rise to the occasion

 

“Where you see wrong or inequality or injustice, speak out, because this is your country. This is your democracy. Make it. Protect it. Pass it on.”

—Thurgood Marshall

Chapter 2: The Grand Old Politico

I am a current events news junkie. I am non-party affiliated. I am an advocate for the American PEOPLE, period. I absorb information from my own chosen tailored outlets  & I stand proud of my influences & resources which will remain undisclosed for now. I will say though, The View is my talk show candy. Nothin’ like a panel of kick ass, strong, intelligent, stand up women to start my day, who always have the most brilliant guests, & a well-seasoned, well-educated, well-rounded team with standpoints from every direction to consider, evaluate & chew on.

I truly believe Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) should be our next president, & Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) his V.P. If you Google Corey Booker & see his Docuseries (“Brick City”) on how he renovated the poor, crime & drug infested streets of Newark New Jersey into a productive thriving community, you will understand why this man is a wonderful candidate. Kirsten Gillibrand is a tough as nails attorney & current New York Senator since 2009, who has a proven track record for fighting for rights. Whether it is women, sexual suits in the military, students, workers, families… this lady is who we want on our team. She is also a published Author of such titles as: Off the Sidelines: Speak Up, Be Fearless, and Change Your World. If that gives you an idea of her caliber. Google her. And hands down, I would gladly endorse Mister former Vice President Joe Biden as well. I gotta say, he is obviously a superior candidate just as similarly as John McCain was. The quality of his character & the caliber of his content is second to none. Can I get an Amen??

Good (moral & ethical), smart, wise, fearless, enlightened, aware, strong minded, ambitious, empathetic, honest, fair, genuine, positive, progressive, articulate people who stand firm for human rights & dignity… that have an excellent work ethic, track record & impressive resume… make good leaders, the right kind. Makes sense. Don’t ya think? Who cares what side (party) they’re on. It’s the quality of character that matters. Despite the court of public opinion, divisiveness, & the polarization of our Nation… electing a proper leader for the free world is a non-partisan issue, if ya ask me.

Politics aside, I think former President Obama is Super Fly, I miss his swagger & calming nature. Barack & Michelle are an A#1 class act & I’m not gonna lie, I miss their charming romance. It was like tea & cupcakes in the afternoon under a green fluffy tree on a happy hill. Ahhh, the good old days…

My candid opinion about the current dude in office is that Trump might appear to be a train-wreck, a cruel joke, or a page out of some sinister playbook, but… I honestly think the breakdown of everything is Awesome. Let’s look through the “love our enemy” lens for just one minute.

The guy is Awesome with a capital A, actually. Why? Because he went into an otherwise most sacred elected office & literally pissed all over it like a dog marking his territory with no shame, no rhyme or reason & no apologies & didn’t even take the government’s presidential salary, perks or benefit package. The guy gives new meaning to the word: unorthodox. El Trumpo is tearin’ his presidentalhood right the heck up. Let’s call it like it is. Whether you are for or against the guy, dem or GOP or in between, if yer living & breathing in this country today & have a TV of sorts, ya cannot deny the mark this guy is making.

Kudos to you, man… for keepin’ it fresh & keepin’ it real… despite nasty rumors, rhetoric, fake news, real news, & your lovely track record. Sometimes the best way to renovate something is to fetch the wrecking ball, have at it, then start from scratch. I’ll be damned if Mr. Trump isn’t facilitating that gracefully. Like a Pro, he just rather effortlessly, instigates & erupts change, in every direction, everywhere he goes. He is like an anomaly of sorts, lol.

From Main Street to Wall Street to Shakedown Street. Raid, renovate, remodel is the name of the game. Every time ya turn around, another tree’s on fire, there’s a cat fight in the ally, or the tweet bird is singing its high & mighty unsolicited buns off. Pretty rad. I know Bobby De Niro wouldn’t concur… sorry, sweetie, but what appears to be falling apart might actually be things falling into place. It’s all in the eye of the beholder. Hot mess? Or blessing in disguise…?

Donald Trump is certainly not responsible for the decline of civility, we have done that all by ourselves, over the course of some time now. But, I just felt like something had to be said. I was born in America & I believe in the power of our union & the binding principles of the constitution that this country was built upon. It doesn’t take a Political Science major to see that Donald Trump is no great patriot, he is a business man. Defying ANY prototype, the man is in a class of his own, quite frankly. Fondly referred to as “the great divider in Chief,” him & his goons have invaded the white house & now have relinquished control of the whole goddamn program, if you will, doing as they please without real opposition or consequence it seems. People fear him, & therefore keep their mouths shut essentially at this point, after witnessing his “clean sweep” of everyone who disagrees with him.

His voters, the peanut gallery, middle Americana, middle to low income demographics, buy into his not so charming rhetoric of being a mascot for the working class & underdog. I mean the guy did create significant tax cuts, create jobs, lower gas prices & smoothed out certain foreign leader relations, but honestly, the guy has a continuously running self-motivated agenda. Clearly, he has little authentic regard for all of us due to this, let alone the working-class citizens. Why? The government shutdown is why. It has been reported that there are 800,000 with blank paychecks today… all cause of him not getting his way.

I actually had respected Mister Trump as president, for many & various valid reasons for most of his presidency. I will admit, though not particularly “presidential,” I bought into his proven entrepreneurial track record, business savvy, unconventional tactics, & his “method behind madness” ways.  I honestly had conceded to allow him to govern as he saw fit. I disregarded his philandering ways, his uncouth demeanor & apparent obvious lying problem. I even kept my mouth shut around certain circles, because of how controversial it is to actually support him. But, I really did feel he had a certain what they call: Je nai sai quoi that actually, as uncouth as it may be, was ironically liberating us on some level as a country. At the very least Trump’s position has compelled people to wake up & is motivating the underdog to step up & run for offices & also lighting fires under otherwise complacent butts, if you will.

Howeverhear this Mister President, sir!

Last time I checked we lived in a free democracy not a communist/socialist dictatorship. This wild west modern-day standoff we have going on regarding the “borderwall” has the American Federal Government shut down & thousands of families without pay longer than ever in history. News media reported that the Coast guard “tip sheet” for their government employees on a hiatus said:

I quote…

“Have a garage sale, clean out your attic or basement, sell unwanted larger ticket items, offer to watch children, walk pets, house sit, turn hobbies into income, become a mystery shopper.” ????

WOW.

What—the—Fuck—is—happening?

This is NOT what our ancestors who migrated here to have a shot at the “American Dream” for themselves & their future families… signed up for. TO BE TOLD that they should scrimp & save, grub & scrounge & essentially collect cans to pay their rent & light bill. If I was one of those government workers on leave with a pregnant wife, sick kid & bills to pay… I would surely exclaim: “SUCK MY BIG FAT DICK, Mister Trump… you unempathetic, insensitive, rat bastard Russian dictator man. I WAS on your team, dude, (struggling to support my president, but still…) until ya pulled this one.”

This is America, land of the free, home of the brave, not a pigpen of partisan politics, where citizens are essentially deprived of their right to work & provide for their families due to feuding egos, stare down contests & temper tantrums.

No one disagrees with having tighter border security but honestly, there are far more COST EFFECTIVE & sophisticated ways to “build a wall.” There are far more sophisticated ways to detect drug smugglers & deter asylum seekers than a metallic wall that costs almost SIX billion (BILLION) dollars & takes a million years to build. Not to mention TAX PAYERS will wind up footing the bill??? And as big & as relevant as all of that is, it is actually BESIDE THE POINT>>>> Negotiate your little buns off all ya want El Chapo… oops, I mean El Trumpo, Nanc & Chuckster… but do it on yer own friggin time. Forcing an extended government shutdown is very damaging, dangerous & unconstitutional as far as I’m concerned & puts us all at risk as a Nation. That, Mister President… has gone too far, my friend.

It is my understanding that a bill to reopen the government has been on the table for quite some time now & Trump refuses to sign it. We can thank Rush Limbaugh & Ann Coulter for that. They basically threatened to publicly shame him if he signed it without the wall, & Trump cowered. COWARD! So now, the dude in the white House is holdin’ out like a toddler with his hands on his hips & stomping feet saying “No!” like a little bratty baby.

Anxiety is very high nationwide, people are beginning to  protest, to picket, tempers are flaring, fear is rampant, financial security compromised. This can cause great problems & ripple effects felt for years to come. Parents are having to pause extracurricular activities for their kids due to fees that cannot be paid at this time. Peoples whole lives are getting tossed upside down.  Folks are on the verge of losing their homes for god sake. 250 thousand veterans are not receiving their benefits. Certain air traffic control & TSA employees are absent causing a whole new kind of national security risk. Christ, I just heard they are SUING the federal government for lost wages etc etc. Not to mention, it was just announced that there is no salmonella control crew to inspect imported produce. The FDA (a government agency) is in charge of keeping our food safe for consumption. Day 25, The FAA is now ordering TSA safety inspectors back to work without pay, due to uninspected passenger planes. The fucking Coastguard is not being paid, for god’s sake. Both air & sea security is being compromised. Hmmmm, I wonder what kind of threat that might pose?

The American people are now subject to all kinds of dangers. These are just a few examples of the immense impact. Doesn’t Mr. Trump see how we must look to our enemies? Heck, who’s to say that our enemies abroad aren’t watching “dumbass” America fighting on the playground again distracted with our defenses down, & decide to pull some dirty attack. “Look ShahzadAkeemSamir! …America’s on strike again… round up the S-Bomber crew, dude!!”

Maybe that’s what Trump wants. He wants to inadvertently create an invasion that leads to a war, so we all have no choice but to unite & get behind him, (cause we are America, after all… hear us ROAR!) making it almost necessary to reelect him just like Bush did with 9-11. Am I lying?

Did someone say Military Industrial Complex?

Oh, that was me…

Military-industrial complex: network of individuals and institutions involved in the production of weapons and military technologies. The military-industrial complex in a country typically attempts to marshal political support for continued or increased military spending by the national government.

http://www.britannica.com

The Military Industrial Complex is the first of the “Big Business” sharks of our Nation I will speak about here. It is the richest, most powerful outfit in the world. The “War” business is the BIGGEST most capitalized on, corporation to have ever existed in the duration of human history.

“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger & are not fed, those who are cold & are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.”

—Dwight Eisenhower Circa 1961

I am not opposed to retaining our military for services that protect & serve us as a Nation, I am not opposed to military spending as needed in a moderate way. President Trump did in fact withdraw our troops recently from Syria & Afghanistan… most likely so he could transfer the senseless military costs to a more personal project like his “wall.” He made the move of releasing our troops back home look like a noble play. He basically stood before the troops abroad one covert night & made a speech talking about how America should no longer be policing the world. I kinda like that idea. It makes perfect sense. However, Isis IS NOT DEFEATED. Trump & Pence keep exclaiming this false idea. Trump has retracted our troops for his own agenda… guaranteed. Hence, the Military Industrial Complex WILL prevail. It’s just a matter of time. Things are never what they seem in this government’s grand facade.

“Politics is the entertainment division of the Military Industrial Complex.” — Frank Zappa

I’m not currently, but I would like to be a proud gun owner. I am not against guns, I do believe in tighter back ground checks, more detailed applications, & mental evals, etc, etc. But, this “Military Industrial Complex’” Eisenhower is speaking of, is a very large BULL (bully) just eating up every single extra dollar we may ever have, while sacrificing the education of our children, & the health & welfare of our sick or impoverished citizens.

military-industrial-complex-cartoon

The dollar amount that pours into this Military Industrial Complex is so high, that it is almost unspeakable. They have lobbyists, & ambassadors that sell fabricated scare tactics instilling fear into the public, so folks agree to support “the protection” that Military & national security measures provide. These grand safety measures are truly not necessary at the great lengths that these people deceptively profess. It’s a big LEGAL scam.

Meanwhile… teachers are on strike (yet again & again & again), government workers, middle America, & students in debt are the casualties. So much money all going to weapons & war, when it could be evenly distributed to the proper channels. We would thrive, then. We would flourish. We would be a debt free, non-struggling people. The middle-class society at war with eachother would cease to exist. We would be nourished & blessed & progressive & grateful… so much MORE, than we are now. The M.I.C. is STEALING from us daily, while endorsing WAR on a grand international scale as a means to keep the “business” booming.

76611_522244157786901_1086718353_n

That… is… fucked up, man.

When is enough enough??? Yep… smoke & mirrors, people… smoke & mirrors.

By the time this book jumps off, the “shutdown” will likely have blown over. But I am recording these events right now in real time, to demonstrate what is happening in this current administration. We are living through this & will continue to live through this. One day, our children’s children will be reading about these times in a text book. (Hopefully written by a fearless unbiased transparent Author) like me. We can only hope.
