Don’t Be Upset…

We heard lots of stories from others regarding race this, and race that.  We heard lots of people saying that darker skinned people are using the “race” card when things happen.  We heard how others rally behind police officers when they are shot or killed, yet nothing is mentioned about the lives lost by police.  I am not against the police that honestly serve the communities and connect with people in communities.  I am not against the police that have to honestly defend their life in a situation that is life and death.  What I am against are the innocent killings and the lies other people give to make the police believe they have to destroy a family’s life.

I saw a YouTube video of a SWAT officer that shot and killed  a seven year old girl with a bullet directly into and through her head.  On this YouTube video, the SWAT officer did not answer why he did it or what was his intentions as he broke down the door in this home… a home raided to where only a grandmother and her seven year old granddaughter was occupying.  The gentleman that was doing this video provided information that was released by the American Psychological Association in regards to how police see dark skinned people.  After some research, I had found an article that tells how police view dark skinned people and how lighter skinned women view dark skinned people.  This came out in March of 2014 and here we sit in 2016 with the same issues going on.  I believe you should read the article for yourselves.  It is a good source of information.  Please share.

Isn’t This Interesting…

I know what I am about to write may cause issues.  I am well aware of the conflicts that it may stir up, but I was thinking… as dangerous as it may be.

I find it very interesting how Donald Trump and other Republican officials wanted President Obama to show his birth certificate million upon million times over.  Donald Trump even criticized Ted Cruz for not being American (in so many words) because Ted Cruz was born in Canada.  Isn’t it interesting how no one in the Republican party, nor Donald Trump, ask Ted Cruz to produce his birth certificate over and over again?

People dare to say President Obama is not Christian, yet they cannot supply proof, other than the use of his name.  There are people with native middle eastern names who are Christian.  Isn’t it funny how people can say Barack Obama is our first black president.  How can this be?  He is of mixed race.  His mother is German so when a person say he is our first black president, they are looking upon half of him not the fullness of him.

Now, back to Donald Trump.  Isn’t it funny how he can degrade others from foreign lands when he is married to someone of a different country?  His first wife, Ivana Zelníckováw) as born in Zlin, Czech Republic.  Did anyone question him as to why he is so anti foreign when his first wife was not born in America?  Let’s move on to his second wife.  Marla Maples is American, born in Georgia.  Now, his third wife.  Melania Knavs is half Slovenian and half American.  She was born in Sevinca.  So all this time of him talking about boarders and immigrant control, in so many words, Ivana and Melania are from different countries.  Most people would say he is talking about Mexico, but an immigrant is an immigrant no matter how you try to explain the difference.

All in all, I am just expressing that before someone say something about not allowing foreigners in the United States, he should recognized he married two women from different countries.  Any country can be a “terror” country.  It does not have to be just from the middle east.  After all, we didn’t we have Americans go to other countries and claim radicalism once they gotten back in America?

Really? Not again!!!

There are a lot of people always say America is the best country ever. People say there’s no racism. People say America is just for everyone. No one wants to talk about racism or how it affects us as “Americans.” No one understands what it is like to be of a darker pigmentation in America. The constitution states ALL men, not some men, but ALL men are created “equal.”  Is that true in the eyes of the law? Even the Governor of Minnesota said this was race motivated. My take… this police officer is not going to do any time for this act.

I read were a police officer in New York was convicted by his peers (the jury), but the judge made the sentence where the police officer did not serve any jail time. He only receive house arrest and probation. The person that officer had killed cannot tell his side of the story. That person cannot defend himself in a court of law. Police officers have bullet-proof vests and yet they are afraid of their life of someone who does not have a weapon. Even so, the military don’t wear bullet-proof vest and we are deployed in some of the most dangerous areas known to man. I would love to see a police officer deployed in a “hot zone” where he or she cannot wear a bullet-proof vest. I bet they will shot everyone in sight.

Incidents like this were known in the southern states, and now they are being done by police officers in the northern states. Videos that show the truth, yet not admissible in court, or the police get the videos first before it can be released. If the police officer did nothing wrong, then why are they so much in a rush to obtain the video before it stream live?

Sooner or later, America will pay for their sins and those that had gotten away with so much will have to be judged by God Himself, one day. I would love to be a fly on the wall because no matter what excuse a person gives of taking a life that is not just, would it be the correct answer?

Thoughts to Process

You know being an adult; I have noticed a lot of things.  Some of these things are the fact that people don’t really know how to drive and people don’t know how to obey laws.  I was raised to do what is right, even when no one is looking.  I will say that I often wonder why should I do what is right when everyone else get rewarded for not doing what is right?  Allow me to present some examples…

Directional signals. In order to receive our driver’s license we have to pass the rules of the road.  One item on this test is the ability to use directional signals, and back in the 80’s, one would have to use not only directional signals, but have to be able to use hand signals as well.  Many drivers cut in front of me and others without using their directional signals.  Is it me, or as anyone else find it very interesting when a police car is following them, or in the area, people will remember the rules of the road and use their directional signal?  However, as soon as those police officers go their own way, people forget the rules of the road and don’t use their directional signal.  In fact, Those that don’t use their signals are very quick to flick a person off, talk about that person, or have road rage when other drivers do the same thing they do… cutting in front of others and not using their directional signal.

Texting and Talking on the Phone without hands free. Texting while driving is illegal, yet people do it every day.  People put their phone on speaker, yet it is still illegal because they don’t have hands free.  I know of a woman that drives with her phone to her ear and the excuse she gave “they cannot see at night if you are on the phone or not, so what is the big deal?”  Say that to a family that lost their loved ones due to the same situation or due to someone texting.  Again, people know it is illegal and when the police are around, they don’t dare touch their phone.

Right of Way. I have seen people get into fender benders because of right of way issues.  When the light is green and a person is turning on the side of their own traffic, they have the right of way, unless the like turns yellow.  If the light is green and the car is turning across the traffic, they must wait for cars to come the opposite way in order to complete the turn.  So many times the car turning hits the car that is turning the same way, when the one turning across traffic does not have the right of way.

Out of all of this, do you want to know what I really take in from these experiences?  People say they are Christians, yet are they living or exhibiting Christian values?  I am not judging, just pointing out if a person say one thing, they should exhibit that one thing, yes?  Everyone drinks, and I am no exception, but I don’t go over my limit and get behind the wheel.  Even Jesus says everything in moderation.  Having road rage and not obeying the rules of the road when the police is not around; is that being a Christian?  Hating someone due to their race or national origin, is that being a Christian?  My mother has this saying, and I often think of it, which is why I am cursed with doing what is right, even when no one is looking or noticing.  She would say “how can I be a Christian when I cannot follow laws of the land, which most are based on God’s law.”  So how can we claim Christianity when we don’t exhibit what is Christian?

July 7, 2016 – A Poem

Wherever this life puts you through,
I am there with you.

Whenever you feel like all hope is gone,
I will be your strength to encourage you to fight on.

When life leaves its battle scars,
I am in the midst so don’t look far.

Look upon the Horizon and you will see me,
I will forever be,
your cheerleader.

So, put on that lovely smile,
for sorrow will only last for a while.

No matter where you go, I am by your side.
So, when you cry,
I cry!
When you fight,
I fight!

Together,
Forever!

Excuse My Language!

Do you want to know what is really fucked up (and excuse my language)?  Man.  When I say man, it includes women as well.  God put us on this earth to have dominion and to worship Him, not to kill off creation for OUR own glory.  I know I may offend some people, but this is coming from my heart!

Too many times, people hunt for the purpose of a trophy.  To many times, people hunt just to give them a reason to kill an animal.  Countless of wolves, dogs, cats, elephants, lions, and many others are killed for the purpose of just because.  Man is so vicious and mean.  Man is so corrupt and selfish.  No wonder why this place called earth is in shambles.

My mother made a point to me earlier today.  She said God did not intend on animals to be caged and put on exhibits.  There is a difference in showing compassion and raising that animal the correct way compared to abusing it because man say it is an animal.  Animals are smarter than some humans.  I told my mother that is what slavery is about… taking someone or an animal from their native land and putting them in cages.  Don’t get me wrong, I love the zoo.  I enjoy animals and my heart cries out to them because they are innocent and only do what they do instinctively.

At times, I get pissed at kids or humans throwing popcorn to animals when they are not suppose to feed the animals.  They give the animals things they may not suppose to have just to get the animal closer to them to watch.  Then I see mothers put their children on top of rocks to watch the animals closer when they are not suppose to have children on the rocks.  People breaking the rules that is for THEIR protection in order to selfishly see captive animals and then want to cry and scream when their child falls into a pit or get into an exhibit due to their negligence.  Keepers would rather kill an animal than to tranquilize the animal due to the negligence of a human doing something they were instructed NOT to do.  Is that fair for the animal?  Is that fair that other people that obey the rules get to see an animal get slaughtered due to someone else’s negligence?  Is it fair for that animal to suffer and have pain from hot lead piercing their bodies because man wants to do what they want to do instead of obeying the rules?

The joy of raising a dog or a cat correctly have many benefits, yet some people leave their dogs or cats outside.  What is the use of having a pet?  Why have a pet if you will treat is like it is nothing?  My dog has free reign in the house.  My dog sleeps in the bed with me, sleeps on the couch, walk anywhere she wants, plays in any room she pleases.  She does her business outside and outside only.  She has free reign of the fenced-in yard as well.  I enjoy her and she enjoys me.  It gives me great pleasure to see her wag her tail, instead of wondering when her next meal is, or wondering why is she subjected to extreme conditions because man refuses to house break a dog or cat.

It’s funny how man can say they love animals and respect animals, yet their actions does not coincide with their words.  Some people treat their kids like animals as well.  So when man say they love animals… do they really?

Life Experiences

I’m Accused (Laughing out Loud)!

Throughout my travels in life, I had it rather easy.  I have a loving mother and a supportive dad when going to my bowling practices, and even in my interest in chess during my high school years.  Being a high school chess champion in my Junior and Senior years was a very big milestone for me.  I was often called a nerd, although my grades did not reflect it entirely.  Of course, my decisions had led to a lot of hardships and learning experiences.  Some decisions I do regret and others I don’t.  My friends are very eclectic, just like I am.  My mother always told me “define yourself.”  I often tend to hide a lot of emotions.  I always believe I have to be strong in the eyes of adversity.

So one day, I started telling others “I am Awesome” and “I am the best there was, the best there is, and the best there will ever be at what I do.”  Often I get accused of being big-headed or I get little smirks.  I am a strong believer that most people will not give you encouragement.  Encouragement comes from the Word of God, parents, and other family members.  However, there is always something inside of us that wants to be accepted.  I realized that Most people are not worried about your well-being.  To some, you just exist.  It is a mindset.  If I don’t think I am Awesome or the best, who will?  It’s like that saying… you are what you think.  Eventually, my mind will be programmed and it will come as second nature.  I look at it as confidence.

A lot of things has been happening to me over the course of a two weeks.  I will not comment on it extensively, but I will share this.  On my break one day, I was in my car.  I asked the Lord God, why?  Why does this keeps happening to me?  Why, why, why?  Just as I finished that last why, I heard a sweet, soft, innocent voice.  This voice I knew was the Lord God speaking to me.  I heard it as plain as if I was talking to someone personally.  This voice, the Lord God, said “you have to be stronger.”  I did not like that answer, but I was blessed to even get an answer from the most High.

Now I will admit, I am getting a bit carried away as I am now calling myself Phenomenally Awesome.  I don’t know if there is such a term, but it sounds good (laughing out loud).
