One Doesn’t Have to Feel Bad … Accept the Reality … Change It!!

Happy Friday … wow … another mass shooting in Texas … another 18-year-old … this time at an elementary school!  Help me out here with a TGIF for those traumatized in Uvalde, TX at Robb Elementary School, please …  Thank you, kindly!!

Where do we begin?  Who do “we the people” blame?!  Do we blame our “leaders” … the ones we put into office so that they can protect “our”/THEIR second amendment right which has been taken COMPLETELY out of context and inflated enough to dwarf the rest of the constitutional amendments!!?  Or do “we” blame ourselves for allowing “bullying” and disrespect to become the new normal?!?  It has already become the rule of thumb in autocratic nations!!!  Doggone “Pewtin” has young Russians going to a war that they were lied to about, even as far as who started the “war”!!  The Russian soldiers are like the psychopaths “we” the people let loose in a “land of the free, home of the brave” because “we” want more guns than people in the States!  And then we blame the 2nd amendment which was originally designed to give young colonists the right to “form militia” (bear arms) … in the face of the occupation of the colonies (stolen from Native Americans) by British troops!  The gun manufacturers have figured out a way to make money selling AR-15s, etcetera, which is then used to buy off greedy, avaricious, selfish, lying members of the legislative body that “we” have allowed to foster fake fears amongst the population like “White Replacement Theory”, general racism, hatred of Jewish people and other religious groups, and the “politicians” can’t tell the difference between their arses and their mouths!! THIS is why regular “Dick and Janes” in the USA have learned NOT to trust the politicians!!  There must be a restoration of humanity to America and its “leaders” …  And please try to teach the youth of the country the truth by admitting that racism allowed early American “leaders” to stratify the population based on wealth and skin color … (it may become illegal to teach what “critical race theory” actually is!)  As a result, we get these misdirected, predominantly young white males who conjure up these bizarre notions that their low self-esteem can be replaced by bullying and ultimately killing a classroom full (or supermarket, movie theater, discotheque, etc.) of innocent unarmed, helpless humans …  There you have it … Uvalde, TX!  Next!!

The majority of American citizens don’t want AR-15s to be sold to stupid kids with no idea of who they are, what they are doing, and whom they are about to kill.  You see, Americans are being conditioned to accept monetary rewards for ignoring the right to life as the new normal!!  I looked at Ted Cruz’s face as he stood on a stage while the news was being relayed by dishonest law enforcement officials about the horrific massacre in a classroom full of 3rd & 4th graders (who does that – a bully with NO self-esteem!!) …  His face was expressionless as he clasped his hand in front of himself looking like “scrump’s” altar boy!!  You are witnessing with your OWN EYES (and ears) how these law school graduates don’t have enough human decency to stop peddling hateful lies in attempts to secure fictitious “power” (which is actually demonic and evil!) and money. 

Okay, right about now, I would like to address this bs that we Americans can’t intellectually discuss the truth about how things were started in the country so that we can straighten it out!!  Should I repeat … INNOCENT PEOPLE ARE BEING KILLED BY OTHER STUPID AMERICANS!!  The last bastion of democracy although only an experiment has succumbed to authoritarian bullying and greed as a way of life …  The children can’t even go to learn to read and write, add and subtract, or even hold honor roll and awards ceremonies without one of these “side-winding morons” on the loose.  As I see the learning process from an educator’s point of view, one must be able to separate their feelings and examine the morality behind the behavior being examined, challenged, and ultimately changed!  Racism is immoral … the country was stolen from one group, built by enslaved or denigrated immigrants from still other groups, and run by joint-stock companies which later became colonies, then states … and now there is a country!!  When the experiment starts going wrong, one must change those elements causing the implosion of American society …  Don’t sit back and watch … VOTE those cowards OUT of office!  They’ve already shown that they don’t care about anyone’s race, religion, age, and the horrible list goes on!!!  EVERYBODY is screaming “ENOUGH ALREADY”!  So, now they got me tearing up, too!  I write about it seeking to spread enlightenment because nobody wants to actually talk sensible.  There’s always polarized positioning and then the mental bullying starts! I can’t stand a stupid bully!!!  Damn!!

I was chatting with the groundskeeper where I stay who informed me that BEFORE you can buy a gun LEGALLY in Costa Rica, one must pass a mental exam as well as a police/criminal background check.  The kids had already informed those who would listen that “Ramon” was a bully!  He posted videos of himself repeatedly punching another youth! While he is responsible for his behavior, he obviously got “dropped on his head” (figuratively speaking, not literally) by his parents since he had dropped out of school and was living with grandma and grandpa for 3 months …  But, damn, don’t make it so easy to act out one’s misfortune and hurt on innocent others!!  Picture this … an 18-year-old high school dropout bully leaving a store with TWO AR-15s … That’s horrific … as we have seen over and over … and will continue to see until fears and greed are replaced with morality and responsibility all the way around.  Sad story … freakin’ non-stop dumb drama!

When I was attending Princeton University (’72-’76), many of us curious students had the pleasure of being entertained (and educated!) by a musical group called “Funkadelic” whose hit album at the time was “America Eats Its Young”.  They landed “The Mothership” at Rutgers University in New Jersey and proceeded to “jam”!  At that time, I began to pay attention to “the message in their music”!  Find YOUR way peacefully, if possible.  One doesn’t have to feel bad … change the situation in the direction of humanitarianism.  Make your leaders stop lying to you … like the Texas law enforcement agency that let another monster kill … as they fearfully watched … waiting for backup.  If people vote for the same avaricious, heartless, misguided leaders … THIS is what we will continue to get!!  From Buffalo, NY to Uvalde, TX … where next?!?
