Something To Think About…

Something to think about when it comes to presidents.  North Korea is a bully.  President Trump is a bully.  I would not be surprised if both bullies go at it head to head and bring upon us… World War III.  Why does this concerns me, or should concern me?  It is because the weapons used in today’s world are more advanced and deadlier than in yesterday’s world (back in the day).

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?

What I Find Interesting…

During my talks with others, even those on YouTube, and watching interviews, I cannot help but to notice something of interest.

Our last names are surnames that makes the majority of our nationalities.  When I see a last name of Beggs, I know that is a German name.  However, this person is from Great Britain.  He considers himself as English, not German and not German English, but just English.  There are people of Africa decent that say they are English, not African English, but just English.  Other nationalities of people in England say the same, no matter their last name.  People in America will say they are German, Italian, or Irish.  They will not say they are just American.

This is interesting because England had slaves and they had freed their slaves way before America even considered it, yet we are suppose to be the best country in the world.  Even so, black soldiers gotten paid less money in the military than white soldiers during the Civil War, yet we are suppose to be the best country in the world.  Why is this so?  Why are we so closed-minded?  I have heard women say they want that white knight on a white horse riding in the sunset.  Out of curiosity, and to pick the brain, I asked why does the knight have to be white on a white horse?  Most women say white is pure and black is evil.  I defend by asking if they had ever seen Star Wars, Return of the Jedi?  Luke is a good guy, yet dressed in all black when he met his father.  It is in our heads to state color first instead of just saying what we desire.  Look at President Obama.  Lots of people say his is our first black president.  I disagree.  He is our first biracial president as his mother is white (German decent).  When you call him black, just like others do me, you are only looking half of what we are, not all of us.  Even so, why can’t we just be Americans?

People say they are Christians or they believe in “their” God.  Do they?  Do they believe in their God because if so, would they be the way they are if God was sitting with them or standing right beside them?

Judgment day… a day some may fret.  However, why fret IF you are doing good by each other?
