Purge: America

People say America is truly the greatest nation on earth.  When I look at our history, I am not inclined to say so.  According to sources, there are 323.1 billion people that live in the United States.  That is more than Russia and more than the United Kingdom.  From this number, 32 million adults cannot read.  About 21 percent of adults read below a 5th grade level and around 19 percent of high school graduates cannot read at all, yet people say we are truly the greatest nation on earth.

When we talk about purge, what are we really talking about?  Let’s look what purge is defined as.  It can be used as a noun to mean an abrupt or violent removal of a group of people from an organization or place.  There are many things that can be considered as purging.

I see commercials daily about giving money to help the poor in other countries, yet we have poor people in America who are suffering.  Let’s look at jobs.  Jobs are moved from the United States to other countries for the sake of paying a lower wage and increase in price in the interest of making more money.  The government gives tax cuts for companies moving their production in different countries.  These companies pay those citizens in other countries pennies on the dollar.  Meanwhile, American citizens are living hand in mouth due to lack of jobs, lack of opportunities, and lack adequate wages.  Most people will contribute funds around the world before helping a fellow American.  All contributed fund are tax deductible which means Americans can support other American causes to help each other.  My mother has this saying that goes “take care of home first.”  How are Americans supposed to feel?  How can this be viewed as a purge?  As a result of companies moving their businesses out of the country, it decreases the amount of Americans working to provide for their families.  This can also cause retaliation or uproar.  The effect of this can lead to increased population in jail as well as increased population among the homeless.  Walking pneumonia and disease can be adverse effects among the homeless which can cause a slow and painful death.  So many Americans look down on the homeless, but homeless people are kinder and more caring than other Americans who are well off.

Trump lifts the ban on big game trophy and now he puts the ban back on.  When the ban was lifted there were a lot of Americans calling him a great president.  This means we have people in America that want to go to other countries to kill a defenseless animal for the sake of having their head on a trophy.  This mean we have people in America that want to go to great lengths to have other animals killed for their own greed and pleasure.  There are many species of animals that are near extinction.  Currently, there are only three White Rhinos left in the world.  Out of a radius of 3,969 miles of earth, only three White Rhinos are left.  This radius is larger than both the moon and Mars.  The West African Black Rhinos are EXTINCT thanks to mankind.  As we go back in time to 1933, King Kong was brought to America for the interest of making money for man and then killed by man because he had gotten loose.  Destruction is what mankind is about and now it resorted to the destruction of God’s precious animals.  Man choose to call this sport when it is should be called what it is… execution.  These animals are NOT property, but living, breathing organisms.  It reminds me of slavery when others bought another living, breathing human and called him or her “their property.”  How can this be viewed as purging?  Americans taking innocent lives for the interest of money and power.  Man always wants to show their power, but never want to resort to humbleness.  A Godly man is a humble man.  It is very interesting how many people say they are Christians, yet can kill an animal to use as a trophy or prize.  Since a lot of people want to say they are a Christian, look at their lives and see if they are living the life of a Disciple of Christ.

The police has free reign of abusing their power.  Most police officers would kill an unarmed person and claimed they were fearful of their life.  Police officers have on a bullet-proof vest and yet afraid of their life if someone has a knife of state statue.  The jury acquits the officer which will allow other officers to do the same because they believe they will have the same fate.  Now, there is a slogan going around saying “Blue lives matter.”  I did not know we had blue people.  Not all police uniforms blue.  All lives should matter.  How can this be viewed as purging?  The paragraph speaks for itself.

There are many instances that purging can happen. I believe what others don’t understand are the cause and effects of their decisions.  The cause of moving production to other countries affects the well-being of most Americans who try to provide for their families.  The cause of senseless killing of wild animals for the sake of a trophy affects the lives of the animal’s offspring and extinction.  The cause of police abusing their power and killing unarmed citizens while getting away with it affects the trustworthiness of police officers and possible retaliation. I can bet you most of the people committing these acts call themselves Christians.  Do you honestly believe a Christian would behave the way those in the above paragraphs are behaving?

A Double Standard?

Today was a day of rest and solace as I had the day off.  Unfortunately, a police officer died in the line of duty.  It is not known if the officer died of his injuries sustained in gunfire or in a high speed car crash after the shooting.  I do feel for the victim’s family as I feel for all others that fall victims to senseless criminal activity.

As I continue throughout the day, I see a gentleman holding a sign that reads “officers lives matter.”  This area is known for subtle prejudices.  I am not talking about a straight in your face being called out of your name or getting attacked verbally for your skin color.  This area is known for supporting in-town people and excluding those that are not born in the area.  This area is known for believing every outsider is stupid and believes those who are white and poor are better than those who are black and educated.  Like most other areas being covered by the media, there are shootings of innocent or unarmed citizens by police officers.  This brings me to something my mother always told me… “You reap what you sow.” This is what the Bible says, not what she says.  Again, I do feel bad for those whose lives are forever changed by a life-changing event.

When I fixed my eyes on the man with the officer lives matter sign, I was puzzled.  Why?  When this community voiced their opinions about black lives matter, non-African descent people were saying that’s crazy and called those supporting black lives matter racist.  They believed the police officers are doing their jobs by shooting and murdering unarmed people.  They look upon the police as the judge.  It is very hard to understand how the police get away with murder.  It is hard to understand how the police get away with planting contraband and other things.

We have Trump calling the person who murdered twenty-six people mentally ill.  This is no surprise because that’s the same others say about those who raided schools and other establishments with bullet holes; leaving behind the wounded and the deceased.  Even his former girlfriend would say he, Devin Kelley, is sick in the head.  Think about this for a moment. Don’t most people call others sick in the head?  Did they murder others?  I believe the police are sick in the head for planting evidence and murdering unarmed people, yet they are still patrolling the streets.

Let’s try an experiment.  After reading this next paragraph, I would like for you to close your eyes.  Imagine someone coming into a building with an automatic weapon and shooting up the place.  What would be the first thing that would come to your mind?  Is it the safety of ALL citizens; both European and African descent?  Is it the race of the person committing this terrible act?  Do you think it is a police officer?  Do you think it is a citizen who claims to be the perfect model citizen?

The bottom line is all lives matter.  It does not matter if the person is African or European descent or a police officer.  If we don’t get it together as a country we will all be doomed, which is something I am really afraid of.  People losing their jobs overseas due to the power of the all mighty dollar, people are required to have more education for a basic job, the cost of living is going up yet the rate of pay is steadily going down, we have kids in America with no food yet I see commercials of save the kids in other countries, we have animals that are in dire need of the basic necessities of life, and we have people that refuse to date others due to race or color; but we call ourselves Christians.  Really?

Do you think it is time us, as a country, reap what we sow?  Think about it…

Honesty versus Flirty

I understand and know men and women are different on most levels.  Why is it hard for a woman to be honest, yet it is not hard for most men to be honest?

 

A perfect example of this would be when a woman looks at a man and smile.  The two engage in conversation and the woman begins to touch him or hold his hand in little ways.  When the man makes a move to know more or ask her for an actual date, she would reject him.  She may say she just wanted to be “friendly.”  She may say she has a man, but thought you needed a friend to talk to.  Are you serious?  You touch me, smile at me, let me buy you drinks, and talk about our most personal experiences in life and you are just flirty?  So, why can’t that woman be honest to that man upfront?  Why lead him on? What would a woman think if a man does that to her?

 

Most men who have these types of experiences would push women away from them because they are afraid of the same repeating itself.  Most men would not return the smile and would have distance between him and the woman in order not to be touched by the woman.  Other men would not even look at women for the fear of being played or having a woman be flirty to them.

 

As I look back on my life and experiences, I can see why good guys finish last.  I can see why good guys don’t come across the finish line at all.  I can see why some men decide to be by themselves.  There are some men who can take hints and clues, but most of us don’t take hints or clues.

 

Am I upset or angry towards women?  No.  We are who we are.  I just wonder why is it hard for a woman to be something they EXPECT out of a man… honesty.  If a man is not honest a woman will feel used and think the guy is just into games.  If that is the case, what is it called when a woman does it?

Who Finish Last?

The one thing I hear a lot of is “I’m sorry.”  What are you sorry about?  Why are you sorry?  Are you sorry for getting caught?

 

This is coming from episode after episode of cheaters.  Most episodes about women usually have the same outcome.  That outcome is the women who usually say “I’m sorry, but I did not want to hurt you.”  So, they did not want to hurt the man’s feelings because he is a very nice guy.  It’s funny that the guy they cheat on their boyfriend with is a bad boy.  Why can’t they be honest and say the guy is just too nice and they need a man who is going to dog them out because that is what they are either used to or want?  Ultimately, that is what the women are saying.   Most women are attracted to the bad boy and have men who are too nice as an arm piece.  They are usually in tears and want to talk about things after getting caught as they are afraid of being left out in the street from the home shared by their soon to be ex-boyfriend, yet they had no desire to talk before being caught.  The women want to beg for forgiveness when they see two men fighting over them in the effort of finding the truth.  They have the nerve to have their identity withheld because of what?  They are not concerned with their identity while they are cheating.  It is like someone in the Klu Klux Klan wearing a cheat to conceal their identity because they are afraid of getting chastise if their face is truly revealed.  Although the police is the new Klu Klux Klan, but that is a different write.

 

I’m sorry, but I don’t fight another man over any woman.  If a woman cheats on me, I am not taking it up with him, but with the woman because she knows better.  I was raised to open doors for women.  I was raised with treating women with respect.  I was raised not to use the term “female” to describe a woman.  A woman is a woman just like a man is a man.

 

Don’t get me wrong, men cheat too and they usually have the excuse of “it’s not like that” or “what are you doing?”  This posting is not about the man cheating, but about the woman cheating.  In reference of who finish last the question remains.  Do nice guys finish last?  Do women refuse to date a nice guy as the last man on this earth?  Lots of younger women refuse to settle down with a nice guy.  They want that bad boy.  As they get older, they began to see the damage of their cheating as Karma comes back and bites them in the azz.  All of this is a vicious circle that gets worse from generation to generation.  In my experiences women have children at a very young age and they are forced to settle down a bit more due to the child.  Now, they want a good man because their situation has changed.  Is this what it takes to desire a good guy?

 

Some say nice guys finish first.  Some say nice guys finish last.  I say nice guys don’t finish at all; not even if he is the last man on this earth.  I cannot wrap my brain to think how bad boys get the most attractive woman or have a collection of fine looking women, and men who really deserve a woman is left in the sea as shark bait.  Most nice guys get the women that others don’t want.  These women are usually extremely overweight.  These women are usually not too educated.  These women are those who are really not your type, but you are forced to date them because you cannot find a woman who is your type and you are getting older.  These women have children and they cannot find the type of man they really want due to the change in their circumstance(s).  Some tell me I am too picky, but answer me this question.  Should I really lower my standards in order to date a woman who is very obese, not educated and cannot speak with proper English when the time calls for it, or have a village of children then realize other men are not attracted to them?  Like other men and women, I want to be in love with a woman who is going to love me for me and care for me, but I believe I should not sell myself short to get what I really don’t want.

What We Cannot Say…

At times, people have a way of putting words together that we cannot express ourselves.  I consider myself to be a good guy.  I never said I love you first to anyone.  They usually say it to me, even my family; but they know I love them by the special things I do to show it.

I have not many friends because I had been hurt a lot before.  Some had made fun of me because of my race and culture.  Others had attempt to bully me because of the things my parents had and I was given good things in my life by them.  Even some made fun of me because I would die for my dog, knowing they have a short life span on earth.  I see people take for granted of the little things in life.

Watching YouTube videos most times, I have learned things about myself that I would not have known before.  I have learned what it is like to be homeless with nothing.  I have learned what it is like to be ridiculed and toss around like a bag.  I have learned what it is like to be afraid.  I have learned what it is like to be loved.  I have seen through the eyes of a dog about pain, resentment, and hurt.  I have seen through the eyes of other animals that are hunted for game not as a source of nourishment.

I look out of my window in my home and stare at the green grass and listen to the birds sing.  I look at white butterflies that fly around the home.  I look at my vehicle sparkle as the sun bounces off it.  I look at the wind blowing the tops of the trees.  I look at the high flying hawks and wonder what it is like to be that free.

Afraid of being who I am, there is one thing no one can take away from me, well actually two things.  The first thing is my education and knowledge.  The second thing is how loved I am by family and God.

I will like to share a video with you.  I hope you enjoy it and find it comforting in some way.

Have You Ever Thought?

Have you ever thought you would be single for the rest of your life, and why?  This is my story.  I am middle-aged and I don’t have children.  The reasons for me not having children are rather personal to me as I don’t want to have a child out of wedlock.  I don’t judge others because I don’t want others to judge me.  What other people do, they do.  What I do, I do.

 

I have joined a lot of sites regarding dating.  These sites range from free sites to paying sites with a guarantee of finding your match or mate.  Like most people, I have criteria.  Some settle for things they choose to accept or think they have to in order to fall in love.  Others really settle for things they know they don’t want, yet they don’t want to be alone either.  Some things that I refuse to settle for are:

 

  • People who brag or boast about themselves ALL the time. This leads me to believe they are selfish.

 

  • Women who use a LOT of profanity. Don’t get me wrong, we all do it.  Even I use profanity at times when I am highly upset and angry.  We are human, but in everyday conversations and all that comes out of a woman’s mouth is profane language, that is an instant turn-off.

 

  • An obese woman. Our bodies change over time and we tend to gain a bit of extra weight.  I understand that.  However, I refuse to date any woman that weights more than I do or who is considered obese.

 

  • A woman with a lot of children. I have had issues with a lot of men who are the babies’ daddy.  Some women have kids by three or more men.  Some women tend to have children at a very young age because they believed the lifestyle of what a man had promised them.

 

  • A woman without access to a vehicle. I just got out of a relationship similar to this.  I live in one area and she lives in a completely different area.  The only way we got to see each other is if I drove to her location, which is almost two hours away.  I don’t mind taking the train, but that limits a lot of things to walking.  That is good on comfortable days, but not when it is raining or snowing.

 

  • Ghetto fabulous women.  Ghetto fabulous is a mindset where you are not working and looking for a handout in many ways.  These are the type of women who do not pronounce or talk properly when the mood calls for it.  A perfect example would be “ain’t no way,” “you is,” or “is you.”  That is poor grammar and how would it look taking a ghetto fabulous woman on a company-hosted function with her saying those words?  Sure, I use slang, but I understand when to use it and when not to use it.

 

I write a lot of women regarding their profiles, getting to know them, and looking for genuine conversations.  Unfortunately, I don’t get any response from them.  I do get messages from women who are not even close to my type.  They are those listed above.  I am far from a racist person.  After all, I am of mixed race.  There are a lot of women of European descent who are very obese that want to talk to me and beg me to meet them.  There are a lot of women of African descent with a village of kids that wants to meet me and beg me to talk to them.  There are a lot of women of all races who want me to talk to them or meet them because they have a bi-racial child.  There are a lot of women who believe I should be honored to be seen with them when others don’t even want them.  It gives me the impression that I am their LAST chance or resort.  I don’t believe in sex before marriage, but I am human so it may or may not happen.  I don’t believe in living together or shacking unless you are in the mist of getting married to each other.  Lots of people judge me on these things.

 

I believe these are the reasons why I am still single.  Do I have to bend for what I believe in just to get a girlfriend?    Do I really have to settle for things that I know I am not attracted to in order to get a girlfriend?  Everyone that I am attracted to are not attracted to me and vice versa; but I feel I should not have to settle for someone who I know I will have issues with later on in life just for the sake of being with someone.

 

With all of this said, I would love to hear from you and your comments on this post.
