Once upon a time, my Uncle Deannie was my hero.
Once upon a time, my Uncle loved his family.
Once upon a time, my Uncle was a human being.
Alas, now, he has become a Blue Uniform. Nothing matters more to him than the “family” from which he retired. Nothing matters more to him than the Thin Blue Line.
The Thin Blue Line is a Cult.
When a Man who spent years protecting his nieces and nephews from his own brother can turn his back on that family because they question the ethics and ethos of Law Enforcement, that man has become part of a Cult.
That Cult that deems itself the arbiter of Life and Death. That Cult that deems itself Judge, Jury and Executioner.
The Cult that says Comply or Die. Comply or we have the Right to Kill you. The Right to End Your Life because you did not obey the State. Representatives of the State, we are.
The Cult that acts out in contradiction to the Constitution and Bill of Rights of these United States of America.
Some time, about a decade and a half ago, my Uncle, the Cop, disowned everyone in his family who did not blindly accept every action of the State as represented by the Police. By the Enforcers of the Law.
If you did not obey Law Enforcement, he judged your life forfeit. Damn your rights as a Citizen.
Worse, yet, he has recently decided that those who call him on the decisions of his personal life such as his children forfeit all rights to understanding, compassion and love from him. His Wife, I am perplexed to say, has rode shotgun on this wretched inexcusable outlook on life.
This Uncle cheated on his wife. This Uncle had a child out of wedlock. This Uncle lied about it for 30 years. This Uncle put himself out as a beacon of morality. When he was called on his infidelity, he blamed the daughter who, in part, called him on his duplicity and hypocrisy.
This Uncle has decided that he shall disown his own daughter because she acts as he raised her. Because she called him, along with her brother, on his hypocrisy.
The Aunt. The Mother. Simply refused to acknowledge anything. Preferring instead to slam her head in the sand and aim her judgment and anger at the daughter.
Odd. This is. I’d not think to blame others for my poor decisions or the outcomes of those poor decisions. I suppose to have a scapegoat is convenient.
This Uncle is an odd sort.
Strange still is that he has forgotten all of the reasons that made him my hero in my youth. Apparently, now, I, and my siblings, are to blame for all of the imperfections and sins of our Father. We should simply forgive him. Even as he still commits perfidious acts against us time and time again.
Strange thing is family.
Strange and odd.
It is. It is.
The Relationship between Black and White people in America will not be normalized and will continue to be racially stratified UNTIL a Black Person can be a Republican and NOT be called an Uncle Tom.
Democrats profit from racism whether real or contrived.
Racism will not be a relic of the past until Democrats stop using it as a Wedge Issue in Politics.
The filibuster was not created during Jim Crow.
It was actually made possible, first, by Northerners who were Abolitionists and/or who had Abolitionist sympathies. Aaron Burr, who made the filibuster possible when he was VP of the US, was from the North and an Abolitionist.
Obama is a lying, racist turd.
Oh yeah…the people who profited from slavery the most…they were the ancestors of Barack Obama in Eastern Africa.
If Poverty and Crime are linked, pls explain White Collar Crime.
There are millions of poor people who do not resort to criminality.
There are those who are wealthy, Middle Class, fairly well off, living a decent life….WHO COMMIT CRIMES.
A great deal of the time, silence is people looking at you whilst talking themselves out of murdering you over your ignorance and arrogance.
Sometimes, we see the train coming. We see you leaning out towards the tracks.
And it takes every ounce of self discipline to keep from helping you fall in front of that speeding train.
That’s why many of us are silent.
Aaron Burr was right. A good bit of violence can set some things right.
Being hunted down for painting White Lives Matter on a public street while not being hunted down for painting Black Lives Matter.
Being told that you can’t get a job because of your skin color especially if you are White.
Being told by the descendants of Spanish Colonizers that YOU are a colonizer because you are White.
The Spanish were the most murderous, inhumane, violent death cult in the Americas. The Spanish founded the slave trade to the Americas. The Spanish were the first to land in America and conquer natives. The Spanish murdered millions in South America, Central America and the Southwest and West of North America.
Yet, we have Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defaming people with White skin while she is the descendant of the bloody Spanish.
Speaking Spanish and being proud to do so despite the fact that Spanish was forced upon the Natives of the Americas. Spanish and Catholicism was used to destroy the cultures of of the natives of the Americas…BY SPAIN.
Being proud of the Spanish Heritage and the Spanish Language in the Americas is not different from being proud of one’s Southern Heritage in the United States of America. They are the same.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a descendant of colonizers, murderers, rapists and conquistadors.
I bought a bird feeder. I hung it on my back porch and filled it
with seed. What a beauty of a bird feeder it was, as I filled it
lovingly with seed.
Within a week we had hundreds of birds taking advantage of the
continuous flow of free and easily accessible food.
But then the birds started building nests in the boards
of the patio, above the table, and next to the barbecue.
Then came the shit. It was everywhere: on the patio tile,
the chairs, the table … everywhere!
Then some of the birds turned mean. They would
dive bomb me and try to peck me even though I had
fed them out of my own pocket.
And others birds were boisterous and loud. They
sat on the feeder and squawked and screamed at
all hours of the day and night and demanded that I fill it
when it got low on food.
After a while, I couldn’t even sit on my own back porch
So I took down the bird feeder and in three days the birds were gone. I cleaned up their mess and took down the many nests they had built all over the patio.
Soon, the back yard was like it used to be … quiet, serene…
and no one demanding their rights to a free meal.
Our government gives out free food, subsidized housing,
free medical care and free education, and allows anyone
born here to be an automatic citizen.
Then the illegals came by the tens of thousands. Suddenly
our taxes went up to pay for free services; small apartments
are housing 5 families; you have to wait 6 hours to be seen
by an emergency room doctor; Your child’s second grade class is
behind other schools because over half the class doesn’t speak
Corn Flakes now come in a bilingual box; I have to
‘press one’ to hear my bank talk to me in English, and
people waving flags other than ours are squawking and screaming in the streets, demanding more rights and free liberties.
Maybe it’s time for the government to take down the bird feeder.
The Big Thing on the Left now is the attack on Lin Manuel Miranda and his Hamilton play.
Hamilton is accused of being a slave owner, though, there is no evidence to support this.
Hamilton is then said to have been “complicit in the system” regardless of whether he owned slaves or not.
Well, I got some news for you folks.
Every Great African Power for the past ONE THOUSAND YEARS is complicit in the same system.
That includes Egypt, the Nubians, the Mali Empire and Mansa Musa.
White Europeans did not invade West Africa and enslave the people there. White Europeans docked their ships at trading posts in Africa and purchased previously enslaved Africans from more POWERFUL Africans.
If you are angry that your ancestors were enslaved, buy yourself an airplane ticket and head on over to Africa. If it weren’t for Africans selling Africans, the massive slave trade to BOTH the East and Islam and the West and the Americas would not have been remotely possible.
You want to talk about original sin.
The original sin belongs to the Africans who sold the ancestors of the millions upon millions of African whom they enslaved and sold for massive profit.
Do Not Do Unto Others That Which You Would Not Have Done Unto You.
Europeans purchased Africans who were already enslaved by Africans.
Europeans purchased enslaved Africans from their African Owners.
Europeans then transported those Africans slaves whom they had purchased from Africans Slavers to the Americas.
If the Original Sin of America is Slavery, it originated in Africa with Africans.
Black Lives Matter doesn’t want to touch that one.
Neither do many Black Leaders or Leftist Leaders in America.
Brown People Invented Slavery. People of Color invented Slavery.
There would have been no Atlantic Slave Trade without the WILLING and HAPPY participation of West African Nations, Kingdoms and Tribes.
Stop lying to yourself and everyone else.
Africans profited immensely from the sale of enslaved Africans to Europeans and Arabs amongst others.
My parents’ home, in Umujieze, Nigeria, stands on a hilly plot that has been in our family for more than a hundred years. Traditionally, the Igbo people bury their dead among the living, and the ideal resting place for a man and his wives is on the premises of their home. My grandfather Erasmus, the first black manager of a Bata shoe factory in Aba, is buried under what is now the visitors’ living room. My grandmother Helen, who helped establish a local church, is buried near the study. My umbilical cord is buried on the grounds, as are those of my four siblings. My eldest brother, Nnamdi, was born while my parents were studying in England, in the early nineteen-seventies; my father, Chukwuma, preserved the dried umbilical cord and, eighteen months later, brought it home to bury it by the front gate. Down the hill, near the river, in an area now overrun by bush, is the grave of my most celebrated ancestor: my great-grandfather Nwaubani Ogogo Oriaku. Nwaubani Ogogo was a slave trader who gained power and wealth by selling other Africans across the Atlantic. “He was a renowned trader,” my father told me proudly. “He dealt in palm produce and human beings.”
Pass REAL Police Reform
- Create a National Register of Police who have been terminated for cause and another National Register of Police with justified and proven Brutality Complaints.
- Ban No Knock Raids federally
- Restrict the use of SWAT to emergencies and abolish the use of SWAT for serving warrants and checking barber shop licensing and the like.
- Severely restrict the use of “Military Equipment” in Policing/Law Enforcement.
- Abolish Qualified Immunity
- Decriminalize narcotics. Especially Marijuana.
- Abolish Civil Asset Forfeiture
- Require Police training in De-escalation and conflict resolution. Also, mandate training on firearms.
- Restrict the use of Ball Ammunition against the civilian populace. Require Police to use tools that are not deadly force such as rubber bullets, CS pellets, and other non-lethal tools…AS A LAST RESORT. Police should not look to shoot first and any Police who utters the words “I have a right to go home to my family at night” should be ushered out. Either they are there to serve the community or they are not.
- Mandate training on the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. If you do not know the Constitution and the Bill of Rights AND understand it, you should not be Law Enforcement. PERIOD.
- HOLD MAYORS and Police Chiefs responsible for Police Corruption, Police Brutality, incompetence, indiscipline and lack of training. Hold them to account. Have hard punitive measures enacted that target Mayors and Police Chiefs for the actions of their officers.
Police are being scapegoated by Mayors and Police Chiefs. Certainly, Derek Chauvin deserves to go to prison. He acted heinously and with a callous and oddly casual disdain for the life of a Citizen. That said, Mayors and Police Chiefs set the tone. The buck should stop with them. Not with the Grunt on the Street.
Those are first steps.
Make it happen!
Then campaign on that.
This is all about fear. It is all about control. It is all about not missing the opportunity that a crisis provides the Democratic Party.
The Lockdown was supposed to be to flatten the curve. To keep deaths and infections at a manageable level.
The lockdown was never supposed to be until a cure or vaccine was found.
There have been more deaths from pneumonia in 2020 than from coronavirus. This is so each year. Why do we not lockdown every year to save these lives.
3,000,000 Americans die, on average, each year.
Why are the people dying from this Chinese virus so much more important than the 700,000 Americans who have died in 2020 from other causes.
Death is a part of life. If you fear death, you may as well stop living.
Why is the government acting in collusion with YouTube.com, Facebook, Twitter and other Social Media platforms to crush dissent and alternate voices?
Why is the State falsifying COVID death numbers?
Why are they lying to us?
Why are Americans sitting idly by as they are deceived, propagandized and controlled by tyrants?
I’m writing this in Bangkok, Thailand. 11 people in my neighborhood (Thonglor) were diagnosed within the last 24 hours. Here’s the story from the Bangkok post.
One of the group had been in contact with someone from Hong Kong who has since left Thailand, Public Health Ministry Permanent Secretary Dr Sukhum Kanchanapimai announced during the daily COVID-19 briefing on Thursday.
Dr Sukhum said those in the group that had not shared the glass and cigarette had not been infected. Dr Sukhum said that news of the 11 infections should act as an important lesson, advising people to refrain from coming into close contact with friends, especially those who are ill or show flu like symptoms.
Note the part where it says that those who DID NOT share the drinks and smokes were not infected.
That speaks volumes.
They were in the same room. Drinking, smoking and partying for hours. Yet, were not infected.
It takes more than just sitting next to someone to get the virus.
If you take precautions, you’re going to be ok. I’ve been all over Southeast Asia since the outbreak of China’s little plague. I’m healthy. I’m 50 years old and I smoke. When COVID19 first broke out, I was partying my ass off in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Afterwards, I was in Luang Prabang, Laos when people in Asia initially freaked out and started buying up all of the hand sanitizer and face masks.
It is pretty much back to normal here in Asia as far as I can tell.
About a month ago, I visited a buddy in Landstuhl, Germany. I have not been sick at all. No symptoms of anything except a hangover last Saturday morning.
Take the recommended precautions and you will be ok.
If I’ve survived jumping around SEAsia, Europe and the Middle East for the past two months, you’re going to be ok.
As of this moment, I have zero symptoms of anything unless one counts disdain for the US Media and their panic inducing, breathlessly fabricated fear mongering as a symptom of some virus.
Climate Change is the Snake Oil of the Modern World!
Bigoted Leftists of the Democratic Party all over America saw the words “Kentucky” and “White Power” and were getting ready to go viral on twitter. They were lined up to condemn the whole State and White People everywhere. Some of them started having orgasms.
Then…they saw the photo!
All you late night partiers, who, like me, love to stop in Seven (7-11) or Family Mart at 0h Dark Thirty after a night of partying to pick up some late night goodies, BE WARNED.
If you don’t want to walk home with hand fulls of coke bottles, water bottles, candy bars and chip bags, remember to bring along a re-usable bag. Pack it up. Put it in your pocket. Either that or be prepared to buy a re-usable bag every night of your stay in LOS.
Same goes for all Department Stores and Food Markets like Villa Market, Foodland and Tops. They’ve all gone away from single use plastic bags.
I know some people think this is nonsense or stupid. I agree with the policy. I don’t agree with State mandates or the Government nanny Stating all over people. Corporations should have come to this decision on their own.
I had already begun to limit my use of single use bags of any kind. I’ve been carrying my backpack with me for about a year now. It’s a little, very light, mesh bag that works for everything except for large purchases.
No, I don’t believe that man has as much affect on Climate Change as the Leftist, Socialists, Statists and Fascists who use Greta Thunberg as their little brainwashed puppet. That doesn’t matter. Plastics are horrible and we dump them everywhere. I’ve seen enough animals in the wild stuck in plastics to last me a lifetime. I’ve also seen way too many beaches covered in trash for my tastes. People who litter are disdainful turds who should be locked up inside their homes never to see the light of day (preferably by their family and friends).
Be responsible people or stay home.
