This is a bit of an odd post for me, and quite long, so I won’t be offended if poetry readers skip it. Mostly it is published so I/it can be there for myself if it happens again. Last week I had the distinct pleasure of a totally new and profound experience of hunger. Of […]
Still, after a few days of just drinking litres upon litres of water, I couldn’t take the hunger any longer and my mind switched out. I was no longer in a familiar state, the demands of my body were so intense that decision making was becoming increasingly complicated – the more I tried to “think”, the harder things became. I did a bit of crying and stressing out, but then I noticed that behaviour produced such an intensifying of my discomfort, hormones or something, that I had to force myself to stop. Every standard behaviour used far more energy than I had available so I had to drop it all.
After a couple of days I was already dizzy, vague, shaky and very nauseous, not to mention the hunger pains and various other aches and stiffness all throughout my body. Low energy was probably an understatement.
If there are any ‘humans’ out there, read about this dear woman’s struggles to survive in Australia. She is treated like shit just because she has the audacity to wear a ‘copper’ colored cloak. She is not one who has not been kissed with melanin. She is melanin rich and for that she must suffer joblessness and hunger.
The battle is real! The battle is raging and people who are innocent are caught up in a never ending struggle just to survive and yet there are so-called ‘humans’ who have more money than they can ever spend and still, they try and shame those who fall on hard times and try and dismantle social programs that would help them or make them jump through so many hoops as to make it not even worth the time and effort because they are already too weak from hunger.
Look at what we have become! And don’t even sit somewhere and think that you are immune to this because the day is coming when not one of us will be immune. I just posted a blog on the issue of hunger here in America and yet, this lady lives in Australia and the same austerity measures in place here are, likewise, in place in Australia, at least for those who have melanin.
TO ROBYN: Please comment on this post and from that I can get your email address and I can email you because I want to help. I am not trying to shame you because the shame is not yours. I too, have been in your shoes and may be in them again, but if there is some way that I can help, I will. Or better yet, I have commented on your blog, so please email me.
I have testified to my poverty situation down through the years all over this blog and our situation is NOT on us, it is on the system of white supremacy that controls the world and sets the stage for so much suffering, misery and death for those who look like us. We are NOT the problem and we ALL know who IS the problem.
Also from the original article.
It is not so easy to imagine this feeling unless you have experienced it. Thankfully it’s only happened a few times in my life, but never for this long and never with no prospective income on the horizon and the subsequent brain crash. Unfortunately, about half of the world’s population lives like this for most of their lives, first world or not.
Did you read that???!!!
“Unfortunately, about half of the world’s population lives like this for most of their lives, first world or not.”
I am going to keep this one civil because I am re-blogging it, but I am so enraged over this, that I don’t know why I have not had an apoplectic fit! People should not have to ‘struggle’ like this, but because so few hoard so much, so many have so little. How sick and twisted is that. That was NOT a question!
Originally posted on #Monetary Sovereignty – Mitchell: . It takes only two things to keep people in chains: The ignorance of the oppressed And the treachery of their leaders ============================================================================ You endlessly have been told that Medicare and Social Security Trust funds will, in the near future, run short of money unless benefits are decreased…
My belief (which I have stated before) is that there is a new global economic realignment happening and the US is being left out – which is why the conditions of Americans’ lives are deteriorating so rapidly. The fact that the entire US infrastructure is computerized has left the country extremely vulnerable – which makes it extremely difficult to predict which system will collapse first – the energy or the telecommunications grid. – Dr. Stuart Bramhall
Wise words, indeed! And true! Quite frankly, I cannot wait for ALL grids to collapse. That is what is needed because the hypnotized Americans are not going to realize how fucked they are until their smartphones go dead and the lights go out. When they can no longer gas up the SUV, there will be hell to pay as well. They’ll wake the fuck up then. Donald Trump’s administration, just as all previous administrations that raided Social Security and threw in worthless IOUs that I couldn’t even use as decent toilet tissue, is also coming for Social Security. Social Security and Medicare are not on the point of insolvency. The government prints money out of thin air and can just print more money. It has no problem printing money to throw at the U.S. Military Industrial Complex and yet, we are to believe that no monies can be found for Social Security and Medicare? Don’t believe this bullshit and don’t leave it up to the sick ass seniors to save your Social Security and Medicare because it is always left up to the old and infirm to hobble down the street with pitchforks in hand while clutching walkers and canes at the same time. This will impact US all if we allow Trump and the GOP to get away with lying that Social Security and Medicare are about to go belly up. That is simply not true.
And as the number of those living in poverty climbs, the last remaining safety net programs, such as they are, will be sorely needed especially seeing as how even the United Nations issued a shocking report, though not shocking to me, as to the extent of poverty in the United States which was quickly slammed by the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley.
A Washington Post article said that the report, written by U.N. special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights Philip Alston, says the United States tops the developed world with the highest rates of youth poverty, infant mortality, incarceration, income inequality and obesity. He also said that the Trump administration’s policies will deepen poverty.
Let me repeat this part! “The Trump administration’s policies will deepen poverty,” which means that, like I’ve already stated, Trump and the GOP are coming for Social Security and Medicare which will only ‘deepen poverty’ and too many Americans are living in extreme poverty as it is. While congress enjoys designer health care coverage and a great pension for life, the biggest class growth is the ‘poverty class’ and America is fast becoming a 3rd World nation. The situation is so bad that hookworm has been discovered in America again.
The UN study also found 19 out of 55 people tested in Alabama had hookworm. It’s a disease typically found in developing countries, one that was thought to have been eradicated in the US in the 1980s.Hookworm is most common in developing nations in Asia, sub-Saharan Africa, and Latin America. Areas with poor sanitation, water treatment, and plumbing/sewage infrastructure are especially at risk.And now, hookworm is also “typically found in the developing country called, ‘America’! For the love of !!!!
What in the world is hookworm? A parasitic nematode worm that inhabits the intestines of humans and other animals. It has hooked mouthparts with which it attaches itself to the wall of the gut, puncturing the blood vessels and feeding on the blood.
And yet Nikki Haley said,
“It is patently ridiculous for the United Nations to examine poverty in America. In our country, the President, Members of Congress, Governors, Mayors, and City Council members actively engage on poverty issues every day. Compare that to the many countries around the world, whose governments knowingly abuse human rights and cause pain and suffering.”
Americans are walking around with hookworm that is ‘most commonly found in developing nations’ and so according to Nikki Haley, “it is patently ridiculous for the United Nations to examine poverty in America?” That skank is a depraved, soulless monster as is anyone who works for the Trump Administration and who condones what Trump stands for. I have never seen the like in all my born days! What the hell is wrong with US when we will sit still for this?
None of you see the writing on the wall? Are you that dense? Are your smartphones and personal assistants that distracting that you can’t see what is right in front of your very eyes? First they came for the seniors and the disabled and then they will come for you! You’d better be understanding this! Your smartphone is not going to pay your rent when robots and automation have taken your jobs. Your personal assistant, Alexa, is not going to be able to house and feed you when you lose your income and Social Security is not there to at least, help out in some small way. Obamacare is on life support and so what are you going to do if Trump and the GOP get their way and destroy Medicare? Ask Siri what to do? Yeah! Get your prescription for hookworm from Siri! Your ass is just going to be dropping worms everywhere and don’t damn well come near me with that shit!
No one in the Trump administration gives a damn about any of us who are not multi-millionaires. The United States would rather pull out of the United Nations Council on Human Rights than listen to reports that gives a clear picture in that the United States is descending into 3rd World conditions. They are making excuses that other countries should be looked at for their human rights abuses and how dare anyone confirm what many of us know and that is that the United States has already descended into 3rd World conditions for too many people, including children. Millions of people are living in deep poverty here in the states. Does that have no meaning for you whatsoever? SIGH! I throw my hands up!
N.S. Your comment is a ‘must read’! And, so without further ado!
Some blacks are having sense come back into them.
I am not on twitter, but apparently the phrase #not my mule has been coming up lately on black Twitter. It means that they do not want to go and fight all out for another group. Aside from the fact that they know we are the ethnic group most against homosexuality and transgenderism, those pushing homosexuality and transgenderism use only black people, NEVER any of the many other groups here in America for their purposes.
What black people here have been through cannot be compared to any other group except those other blacks who have been sent on slave ships. It is on a completely different level. Most of what we see in the so-called history books about what happened to us is so watered-down it is not really true. There is no good conventional explanation for why we are still here or not all completely insane. Yet despite what we go through, we have the lowest suicide rates, we are not insane, we don’t go around intentionally shooting everyone in a school, we are the most friendly group to everyone else(especially white people), etc(though some of us are a little too overconfident and are ignoring obvious signs, but that is a subject for another day).
Someone said (this is definitely non-PC): Black people get this in your head. You are hated more than Isis when they are defeated they will be given loans and live here in America in prosperity. You are hated more than any enemy this country has ever had. Yet you’ve never tried to destroy this country but ask for fair treatment. You are hated the most yet you have the least. This country revels in your misery and suffering. The more you suffer and experience anguish the happier they are.
As for who we are…look, everyone can see it but some of us. Whatever our identity is, we are definitely not inferior. I am not going to talk about it all today, but a few American historians here are finally admitting the obvious truth: America became a wealthy nation first off the slavery of “blacks”-and only “blacks”- and their work. Even afterwards, Lincoln couldn’t get us out the country after the civil war and Garvey was stopped during his “back-to-Africa” campaigns. The U.S., if it really did not need us since they claim we have always been a burden, many times could have sent us away but they haven’t. Even past slavery, blacks have been essential to the country.
According to declassified documents, the FBI declared the Black Panthers( a relatively small and non-violent group) was declared the number one threat during the Vietnam War and the battle against communism. Today, we have the fake “war on cops” and all the claims of riots that must require the governors calling in the National Guard when riots by whites-their team winning or losing an important game, a college tradition, Joe Paterno being fired- within the last ten years have caused far more property damage and loss of life(no one called in the National Guard). The strange this is we,as a group, do not hate the country.
I posted this because it must not be relegated to the bottom of a page. It needs to be seen. I absolutely agree with everything that you have written.
Now, I am not on twitter either and so I don’t know anything about Black twitter or white twitter or what, but I am glad to see that some Black folks are coming to their senses and are finally recognizing that we are constantly being used for nefarious purposes by anyone with a fucked up agenda. Why would a Hungarian billionaire care about Black lives? There is an agenda there also. But Black folks hopped on board and away they went with it. Now, I do understand that since I live in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by farms and only occasionally am privy to a horse galloping by, I am not ‘with it’, not to mention that I also don’t own a TV, but be that as it may, I have seen nothing coming from that #BLACKLIVESMATTER group, lately. So, I don’t know what the fuck is going on with them. But when they first started screaming and yelling, the group claimed to be totally inclusive, especially to those in the LGBT community. I don’t hold with that, but that is not the only reason that I could not get behind that group. Something is fishy and rotten when a white billionaire is going to sponsor a group for Black folks and at the head of the group are some ‘Black’ folks who work for him. It’s a bit too cozy for my taste. But Black folks jumped on board and went with it anyway.
What that group has done about anything that has been a problem in Black communities everywhere, I don’t know because I fail to find one single thing that #BLACKLIVESMATTER has done to improve the situation for Black folks ANYWHERE in AmeriKKKa! So-called ‘celebrities’ have thrown money at the group, but where is the bite to this group? Because I have only heard their bark and not a peep of a bark have I heard lately from them.
You are also correct when you state that “What black people here have been through cannot be compared to any other group except those other blacks who have been sent on slave ships. It is on a completely different level. ” That is oh SO true! There is a reason why I bring attention to the plight of the Indians even though I am under no obligation to do so since the only reason I am here illegally is due to the whites having dragged my ancestors here, so the Indians should have no beef with me. They know who to thank for my Black ass sitting over here looking cross-eyed. I bring the plight of the Indian up because I want it front and center in the ‘white’ man’s face just what the fuck his ancestors did to get that land he claims has been in his goddamn family for centuries. It’s fucking stolen land and he loves to forget that shit because he goes on and on about how hard he has worked and broke his back over clearing his land and blah blah chop chop. Fuck that shit! He didn’t do a goddamn thing to earn those acres he claim are his. What he fucking did was steal this land, claim it for his own and then kidnap our ancestors and cart them over here to toil over it and some mo shit! The ‘white’ man didn’t build a goddamn thing. He just prospered from theft and slavery and now wants to sit back just attempting to take the high road and blame the Indians for their plight and blame Black people for ours. I say to that, “Hell No!” I am putting it in his damn hypocritical lying ass face! That is why I stated that the Indians had it rough because a genocide was perpetrated against those people and we all know this. What is in the history books about them is not entirely true either.
Look at how these fools celebrate Thanksgiving; hanging pictures up of pilgrims graciously offering plates of food to the Indians. Talk about changing history, these useless pink fucks have been doing that since the beginning of time. If there ever was a Bible, you can damn sure bet that those pink fucks changed every goddamn word so that what applies to looting, stealing, enslaving and otherwise fucking people up andabsconding with their shit would seem nice. But we are to believe in how saintly, good, kind and benevolent those worthless assholes are now and have always been and will forever be! I be damn it if their filthy ass shit is going to be forever whitewashed on MY motherfucking watch. To hell with that shit!
And these filthy pink fucks cannot understand why we are not the first ones to jump off skyscrapers at the first sign of trouble??!! Hell! Trouble is all we know! You’re also correct when you state that “we have the lowest suicide rates, we are not insane, we don’t go around intentionally shooting everyone in a school, we are the most friendly group to everyone else(especially white people” because these things we do not do, but we’re the problem????!!! Seriously? For real? These fucks would have everyone believe that Black folks are the problem. They point to the high murder rate in Chicagoand whoop and holler about ‘Black on Black crime’ but what about ‘white on white’ crime? Who is always in the goddamn news for murder/suicides? Yeah, they be ‘white’. When I see an article about that, I don’t even have to wonder if they’ re ‘white’. I know they are. Those nasty fucks don’t even care about their own goddamn families! Oh my bad! They cared so damn much, they decided that it was the right thing to do to ‘off’ the family because if their life wasn’t going so great, may as well take ’em all out. So then, how can a thing like that ‘love’? It can’t, but it sure as hell can fuck shit up and blame it on those who it fucked up. Now, that’s rich!
And for the record, the Irish that IMMIGRATED to AmeriKKKa were not slaves. They ‘indentured’ themselves and that was on them. If they wanted to come to America so damn bad that they decided to sign on the dotted line to work a certain number of years to ‘work’ off their passage to America, then that was most definitely on them. But they did not come here in the bowels of a stinking slave ship, shackled to an African. That did not fucking happen. And I dare anyone to come all up in here and say it did. I’ll mop the cyber floor with your ass!
Someone said(this is definitely non-PC): Black people get this in your head. You are hated more than Isis when they are defeated they will be given loans and live here in America in prosperity
Hell! I can believe that! It would not be a stretch for the shits in this shithole to turn around and do that. According to some news reports, ISIS has already been invited over here. The ISIS hype is just that, hype. The government via the CIA is ISIS and every other convenient so-called ‘terror group’ that is formed, daily. You notice that they’ve got to invent names for them, there’s so many. And this fucked up government claims that it can do absolutely nothing with ISIS, but had no problem killing or jailing the majority of the Black Panthers. And The New Black Panthers are nothing like the original because if they were, shit would be popping off, unchecked! But nothing fucking doing!
The Somalis have been kidnapping folks and fucking up shit and yet, they are here, living in prosperity. I see descendants of slaves standing at the bus stop while the Somalis drive by in SUVs. I see descendants of slaves standing in line at the homeless shelter while Somalis are moved into townhomes. This continued ‘in our face’ shit is perpetrated deliberately by the white shits that want to make sure that descendants of slaves know just where we stand. Those worthless motherfuckers have never hid their disdain and hatred for us and I will never hide mine.
You say that many Black people love this country? Well, I cannot speak for them but I can say that it does not apply to me. Many Black people have taken up arms in defense of a shithole that would rather see them dead. That’s not me. I wish to fuck one of those useless bastards would come at me, talking about signing me up to protect this shithole because if they did, then the ‘christians’ hell hath no fury! I’d sign on the dotted line to fuck this shithole up, but never would I fuck another’s country up in defense of what I don’t even see as ‘my’ country because quite frankly, I am without a country. This shithole does not have to claim me because I disclaim it! And the NSA can be all over me like flies on shit, but I take the right to bear arms just as seriously as a goddamn skinhead does!
Absolutely, you are dead on the money over how Black folks get the National Guard called out on us for protesting over outright murder of one of our own by KKKops and yet those pink-skinned motherfuckers riot all the goddamn time over some damn basketball games and not a goddamn thing is said, much less will the National Guard get called out. This is not just a double standard, it is business as usual in this shithole! We cannot protest that an innocent man was murdered by KKKops without having the National Guard put a stop to it and initiate a goddamn curfew already, but let some white motherfuckers get all bent out of shape over their ‘team’ losing, bust shit up, roll cars over, set ’em on fire and some mo shit and that gets conveniently ignored. But there ain’t two sets of laws, is it? Of course not! It is all in our mind. To hell with that shit! We should ALL be crazy, but the fact is, we’re ALL too busy trying to survive to have time to be crazy! I’ll leave that to the pink motherfuckers since they just love to pack heat and then suck on it!
And so again, N.S., I thank you most sincerely for that spot on comment of yours! It is right on point!
As a descendant of African slaves, I want to take this opportunity to welcome Syria’s refugees to America. May you have a better time of it here in America than my ancestors did. And include those of us who are descendants of slaves, as well. I want you to know that even though Black families are seven times more likely to be homeless than white families, we still hope that you fare better than we do. And even though Blacks make up half of the U.S. homeless population, Syrian refugees, you will promptly step right into housing and what is so great about that is that millions of people are in line waiting on affordable housing to open up. They have been on waiting lists so damn long that many have given up and are homeless. But we have housing available for you, refugees from Syria. Ain’t that sweet?! So, you come right on over here and get at the head of the line, in front of ALL the people that have been waiting for years for affordable housing. Come on over here and we shall roll out the red carpet for you because we have no refugees over here in America. We have no homelessness epidemic here. We have no homeless tent cities in Detroit and in California. We have no Skid Row in Los Angeles because Los Angeles is NOT struggling to manage rising homelessness beyond skid row, now is it?
Homelessness in Los Angeles has spread far beyond the area known as Skid Row. The number of people living on the streets has risen 12 percent in the past two years. And now some parts of the city are struggling to manage big homeless populations they’ve never seen before.
Nope! Skid Row is just a figment of my imagination just as it is a figment of my imagination that homeless people are living underneath Las Vegas. And many are war veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and can you believe it? There are homeless children living in these tunnels as well. But refugees from Syria, they welcome you as well.
I want to state how very glad I am that Obama and the other war hawks and warmongers finally deemed it ‘humanitarian’ to host refugees from war-torn countries that were made so by said war hawks and warmongers. Never let it be said that a warmonger does not have a heart even while continuing to make refugees out of innocent men, women and children because these war hawks and warmongers like Obama and John ‘mad dog’ McCain and Lindsey Graham and every other piece of nasty and vile shit that IS the U.S. government is giving up their digs to host these Syrian refugees, are they not? Hell no! They are not! As American citizens, once again, we must overlook our own homeless refugees so that other refugees can come here and thrive and enjoy the good life that is Amerikkka. Never mind that almost two million Black people in Amerikkka call prison, home. Never mind the fact that child poverty in Amerikkka is at its highest point in 20 years, we have more than enough poverty to go around and then some, but we welcome you, refugees from Syria. We welcome you!
Over in Detroit, those poor, mostly Black folks have had their pensions cut thanks to corrupt city managers and criminal politicians, not to mention the massive water shut-offs that could affect 300,000 Detroit citizens.
It is from this incredible web that a challenge to the water shut-offs is emerging. Community organizations have filed a human rights complaint to the United Nations, demanding Michigan state impose a moratorium on the shut-offs. UN experts have already responded critically.
Yes, refugees from Syria, the situation is so bad that citizens of Detroit appealed to the U.N. for help and for their efforts, they got nothing! But when you come to Amerikkka, you will more than likely have running water. You will not be homeless. Your pension will not get cut. Sweet, ain’t it? And the people of Baltimore, MD are experiencing the same thing and they are Black, also. The only thing that you will have to contend with is that pesky ‘terrorist’ thing. Yes, white Amerikkkans fear Muslims or anyone from the Middle East because their government via the media told them to because there are NO ‘homegrown’ terrorists in Amerikkka. When a racist kills a Black person, that is not terrorism. Racists burning down Black churches is not terrorism. Racists lynching Black people is not terrorism. Racists gunning down Black people as they sit in church is not terrorism. A terrorist has been defined as a ‘person or persons of Middle Eastern origin’. The white good ole boys that call themselves the Ku Klux Klan and the Aryan Brotherhood, The Aryan Circle and the ‘White Brotherhood Alliance’ and so forth and so on are AGAIN, just good ole boyz having fun. They are not extremist groups. They are protectors of the empire, Amerikkka. They keep us niggaz in our place; these slave patrols alongside the Amerikkkan gestapo pigs. But nevertheless, you won’t have to deal with them, refugees from Syria because they are too busy busting caps all up in Black asses. If you stay out of the South, the Dakotas and Texas, you should be fine; living it up in your nice house with a two-car garage in a nice section of Connecticut, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine; you know, all the states that have less than a 1% Black population count.
I hear that several of you have already settled in Connecticut. Good for you!
Syrian Refugees Come to the U.S. to Find a Place They Did Not Expect
“Why did they bring us if they didn’t want us?” said the 33 year-old husband and father, recalling his initial reaction through an Arabic interpreter. “We are coming to an open country.” “A country with freedoms,” his wife, 23, said.
“We felt rejected,” her husband said. “We were depressed. How could that be the freedoms that we hear about?”
The couple were driven instead to this Connecticut city of about 130,000 people, joining seven other Syrian refugee families who have come since July. Integrated Refugee and Immigration Services, a nonprofit organization that works with Episcopal Migration Ministries, one of the nine aid agencies contracted with the federal government, had swiftly arranged for their arrival.
Ahhh..don’t feel rejected! At least not until your ass is lying on a slab in the morgue so full of bullet holes, you look like Swiss cheese! Don’t feel rejected until you are driving down the goddamn street, minding your business and a cop stops you and hassles you for no good reason and the next thing you know, you’re found hanging in a jail cell in Texas and word is, “You were depressed, grabbed a handy trash bag and commenced to committing suicide.” “Why oh why did I not put on my turn signal? If I had, I would not be placing this bag over my head and asphyxiating myself!” Do not feel rejected until your children decide to play in a park with a toy gun and the cops arrive and within two seconds, they are lying dead on the ground. Do not feel rejected until you sell a dime bag of weed to a white guy and you get thirty years for that inside a FOR PROFIT PRISON. Do not feel rejected until the unemployment rate for Syrian refugees is in the double digits. Do not feel rejected until you get called, “Mud people,” attempt to take out a conventional loan to buy a house, have excellent credit, qualify for the conventional loan but get steered to a subprime mortgage loan and lose said home and end up homeless solely because you are Black skinned. And thanks Wells Fargo from all the Black people that are out on the street, thanks to your racist ass lending policies.
So, refugees from Syria, you should do just fine because you are not a descendant of African slaves and therefore, Amerikkka SHOULD welcome you! Please step over or on us. It is what everybody else does. Join the pig force and riddle us with bullets or arrest us on bullshit charges. It is what everybody else does. Discriminate against us when the government gives you enough money to open your own business. It is what everybody else does.
And for anybody that has the nerve to think that I wrote this because I hate Muslims, go fuck yourself! I am writing this because I have been volunteering for years too numerous to count and I am sick and goddamn tired of the hopelessness I have seen and continue to see when we don’t help the homeless refugees in Amerikkka; when we don’t help those who are persecuted here in Amerikkka because of the color of their skin. Where is the goddamn assistance for them? These people have been waiting for someone to recognize their plight and do something to help them. Where were the agencies that quickly came to the aid of these Syrian refugees; the ‘Episcopal Migration Ministries’ when it came to helping this man?
A little before midnight on May 29, emergency personnel responded to a report of a burn victim under the Interstate 394 bridge at Dunwoody Avenue, according to police reports. Miller said police told him that a man walking nearby heard screaming and found his father on fire.
Or this man?
His father was taken to the hospital with burns on about 70 percent of his body, Miller said. The lower half of his body had to be amputated, and he was placed under heavy sedation. He was also put on life support.
Who helped him? His goddamn family didn’t even help him, but we have help for Syria’s refugees. Charity begins at home. Why overlook the people that are living like refugees right here in Amerikkka? What? Are these people less important or less worthy of help because they are not from Syria? These people are fighting a war every day, as well. It is called, “The War To Survive!” And it is a war! Ask any homeless person. Ask any Black person that has buried a loved one because of pure, unadulterated racism. Ask the poor in Detroit who are without running water. Ask the poor in Baltimore who are also without running water. Ask the Black men and women who are sitting inside a FOR PROFIT PRISON for selling a dime bag of weed. Ask the unarmed Black men, women and children who have been killed for no reason; noprobable cause. Ask them about being refugees in a country that never accepted them as human beings, much less as citizens that enjoyed rights. Ask Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Jordan Baker, D’Andre Berghardt Jr., Tanisha Anderson, Rumain Brisbon, McKenzie Cochran, John Crawford, Denzell Curnell, Michelle Cusseaux, Ezell Ford, Akai Gurley, Dontre Hamilton, Jason Harrison, Darrien Hunt, Marquise Jones, Tamir Rice, Ernest Satterwhite, Yvette Smith, Cameron Tillman, Victor White III, Levar Jones, Vernicia Woodard, Freddie Gray, Walter Scott, and the goddamn list is endless. I had to stop somewhere but the racist ass pigs in blue or brown sure as hell don’t. But you won’t have to worry about this happening to YOU, Syrian refugees. Your skin does not have OUR deep melanin!
So, don’t bellyache about you coming to Amerikkka and not receiving the kind of welcome you were expecting. Be thankful for what you can get because all of those Black people named in the aforementioned paragraph did not get the opportunity to choose to come to Amerikkka thanks to these filthy white asses over here fucking up their country, their ancestors were kidnapped and dragged over here to become slaves and they and myself are unwanted. But you’ll fare better than they ever did. Count on it Syrian refugees!
Oh, and lest I forget, the Indians would also like to welcome the refugees from Syria because they too, are doing so great! You see, the plight of the Indigenous Peoples of America is so bad that the United Nations sent a special rapporteur, S. James Anaya to lead an inquiry, the first of its kind. What he found was a range of social ills, high rates of poverty, alcoholism, domestic violence and low educational attainment.
According to S. James Anaya, “these are a product of what’s been referred to as intergenerational trauma spanning decades, really centuries, since the founding of the country and before.”
The Indians would just love for some more folks to illegally enter this country that by rights, should be theirs, but that pesky little problem was solved by a little small pox, firewater, beads and genocide by guess who? The same shits that have turned Syria into a bombed-out shell of a country with people fleeing left and right; refugees of course. Whitey white ass just cannot contain his thirst for ALL things material, nor can he contain his blood lust. It must be sated. Indian blood has been spilled by the ton and that did not stop the white’s thirst for blood. The blood of Negro or Black people has been spilled by the ton and AGAIN, this has done nothing to stop the white man’s thirst for blood. Nothing can stop it! This is why you are refugees; people of Syria, and this is also why you are wondering why you are being rejected by the very same white filth that rendered you, homeless. Let’s see how you fare here at ground zero with us Negroes and Indians! Yeah! Read the sign to see how well WE are faring here in AmeriKKKa!
Welcome to Amerikkka! Home of the stupid, the racist and the ignorant! And last but not least, the killers!
Or what, Obama? What the fuck are YOU going to do if China does not stop construction in the South China Sea? What? Are you going to send the CIA/ISIS ‘moderate’ rebels that were ‘vetted’ by John ‘mad dog’ McCain over to China and fuck China up? Are you going to tell NATO to do to China what the U.S./NATO did to Libya? Are you going to declare war on China just as George W. ‘stupid’ Bush declared war on Iraq? Are you going to hype up some propaganda and outright lies against China just as Bush did with Iraq? Are you going to AGAIN, point out that China is a communist country and that her people have no rights? Newsfuckingflash! The U.S. is a goddamn communist country and the people of the U.S. have no goddamn rights! How many rights did Sandra Bland have? Have many rights did Eric Garner have? Have manyrights did Renisha McBride have? Have many rights did Aiyana Jones have? Freddie Gray? Walter Scott? John Crawford? Michael Brown? But you want to tell China to stop construction in the South China Sea but how many goddamn times have you told the racist ass cops to back the fuck up off Black citizens and stop killing our ass? How many times did your former Department of Justice head, Eric Holder step up and go to bat for the Black people that are incarcerated on bullshit charges? And what’s the new coonface doing about the problem of Black mass incarceration? Oh, that’s right! What problem? There ain’t a goddamn problem, not in your motherfucking book. Because you’re looking out for the whites that make a killing off private prisons. How many of them are going to bankroll your ass when you leave the White House?
But hell! I digress! What are you going to do about the $1.23 trillion dollars of U.S. debt that China is holding? Crickets chirping over that one. That’s what I thought. So what now? Are you going to disconnect China’s internet service? Are you going to smack China’s General Secretary, Xi Jinping, with your glove and call him out? Choice of weapons at dawn? Are you going to turn the ships away from America that are filled to the brim with cheap Chinese junk? I didn’t fucking think so because there goes Wal-Mart’s, Targets, Kmart’s, Dollar Trees, Dollar Generals, Family Dollars, China Dollars, Bleed A Dollars sales. AGAIN! What are you going to do to the Chinese if they don’t stop construction in the South China Sea?
Oh, you can intimidate, bully and threaten Germany and France and Canada and almost all other countries and nations, but you sure as hell cannot browbeat China with useless ass threats. Just ask Russian president, Vladimir Putin. Yep, with your sanctions against Russia, you sure showed them. Not only did Russia give over when it came to the situation in Ukraine, but Russia has also turned Edward Snowden over to you, hasn’t he and the Russians aren’t over in Syria helping Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad fight your CIA trained ISIS ‘moderate’ rebel terrorists, are they? Yeah! Russia and China, Iran and North Korea are shaking in their boots and worrying what your mentally ill military whores are going to do if you had the balls to order ‘boots on the ground’ in China, Russia, Iran and North Korea! They’re all quaking in mortal terror because America is shit! Pure unadulterated shit!
You see, China and Russia are not just another Syria and Libya and Iraq and Afghanistan and Yemen and Pakistan. Oh no! You can’t just send in your CIA goons to pay off ‘moderate’ rebels, hand them some weapons and then all hell breaks loose. Yeah! That’s the standard norm for countries like Syria, Libya, Iraq and so forth and so on, but that shit is not going to work with China. No, you’ve got to put some serious thought into what you’re going to do if China refuses to listen to you and they’ve already told you to “Fuck off!”
Beijing said Wednesday US President Barack Obama should not get involved in disputes in the South China Sea, after he demanded an end to artificial island building in the hotly contested region.
“The United States should stop playing up the South China Sea issue, stop heightening tensions in the South China Sea and stop complicating disputes in the South China Sea,” Hong Lei, a foreign ministry spokesman, said at a regular press briefing in Beijing.
And this was in response to Obama’s insistence that China cease with the construction of islands in the South China Sea because according to President Benigno S. Aquino III of the Philippines, the South China Sea is disputed territory and even though the U.S. has a military base in the Philippines, that’s not a problem, but China had better not set up shop there.
My bad! Obama did show the Chinese that he meant business.
“Yep, I am going to throw $250 million taxpayer dollars, I mean….contributions to you guys to encourage you to stand up to that really,really mean bully, China. They are such communists, while we are so democratic. We bomb countries for humanitarian reasons. Just ask Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan and I am sure that I have left some sorry ass Middle Eastern country off the list. I would send in the CIA/ISIS guys, but I don’t think the Chinese would fall for THAT. And quite honestly, that is ALWAYS the script for bringing chaos, pandemonium and bedlam to the Middle East. You see, we’re the GOOD guys and never you doubt it! Just ask France! We’re why they just had that really big false-flag ISIS operation go down. The French are bombing the hell out of ISIS now! Soon, we’ll have everyone on board. Gee! This is great! Now if I can just get the entire Asia-Pacific region to go at it, we shall have worldwide chaos, pandemonium and bedlam. And actually, I belong in Bedlam just as soon as the ICC indicts me for war crimes and I get a commuted sentence and then with my connections, I’ll get to do a short stint in Bedlam, come out and make a mint on my speeches. Ain’t life grand?”
And I am to call that lying, hypocritical slithering, corrupt, slimy war criminal sleazebag “president?” Fuck that shit!
Turn-offs of delinquent water accounts began on Monday and will center on geographic zones. A call for a moratorium until the billing system is audited.
Baltimore officials plan to disconnect water service to about 600 customers a week as they work through a backlog of 25,000 delinquent accounts.
Starting on Monday, meter technicians began turning off accounts that are at least six months in arrears and $250 past due, said Jeffrey Raymond, spokesman for the Department of Public Works. The average overdue bill, he said, is estimated to be between $500 and $600.
The city plans a regimen of 150 turn-offs a day, Monday through Thursday, or 600 accounts a week.
As if what is going on in Baltimore isn’t bad enough, their problems are about to get worse AND how! SIGH! Here we go! Move over Detroit, it’s now Baltimore’s turn!
To the children of Baltimore, I am so very sorry that your parents are poor and that you are unable at the age of 6 to find a job to pay the water bill. But I am quite sure that pretty soon, child labor laws will become a thing of the past and you can uh…work at…well..uh..I’m sorry, never mind. The jobs are gone!
…how the hell can you stand there with a straight face and declare that Venezuela is a national security threat? A national security threat? Venezuela? Are you shitting me? For fucks sake, this shit gets more ludicrous by the goddamn second! The goddamn White House had this to say,
“Venezuelan officials past and present who violate the human rights of Venezuelan citizens and engage in acts of public corruption will not be welcome here, and we now have the tools to block their assets and their use of U.S. financial systems,” the White House said in a statement.”
Venezuela is violating the human rights of THEIR citizens???!!! …AND the Venezuelan government is corrupt? Oh really??!! For real??!! The United States is violating the human rights of its citizens and you, you piece of filthy ass shit ain’t doing a goddamn thing about it or even posturing over the fact that human rights abuses abound in this shithole called America. And what government body could be more corrupt than the shits that take bribes and kickbacks from the ‘corporations are people’ corporations? Here is a list of American state and local politicians convicted of crimes, but this piece of shit is pointing the finger at Venezuela? For the love of ……!!!
A 12-year old child by the name of Tamir Rice was gunned down in a park by filth in blue for playing with a toy gun and he is to blame for his own death and THAT is not a human rights abuse, not to mention, once again, goddamn out and out murder.
Let me set the record straight. What are human rights? Human rights are rights which you are entitled by virtue of being human but apparently, many of us who are American citizens are not considered, human and for that matter, neither are many other people that are held in secret U.S. prisons all across this planet, be they American citizens or otherwise.
“The committee condemned the United States’ lack of accountability for disappearance, torture, and unlawful killings of terrorism suspects, and its failure to apply the ICCPR to international operations. In addition, the committee denounced racial disparities in law enforcement that have led to the incarceration of a disproportionate number of minorities (particularly Blacks and Latinos), effectively denying them basic human rights throughout the criminal justice process. This includes severe sentencing such as the death penalty and life without parole for juveniles; improper use of solitary confinement; and denial of civil rights following incarceration (most notably, the right to vote).”
Again, how is the U.N. holding the U.S. accountable for its human rights abuses since not a goddamn thing has changed? The U.S. is busily abusing our human right to privacy at this very minute by recording my motherfucking key strokes and listening in on my phone calls and having the ability, if they don’t like what they see or hear, to have my ass drone struck at any given moment without benefit of counsel or trial. So what the fuck difference did it make for the U.N. to even bother condemning this shithole for human rights abuses when this shithole is GOD to the goddamn world by virtue of its military?
This GOD called America can determine that Venezuela is abusing human rights when this shithole has not one goddamn human rights leg to stand on because they’ve all collapsed in a heap and been shoveled into a goddamn hot ass furnace, burned the fuck up and the ashes as was the case with Osama bin Laden was thrown into the goddamn Ocean, never to be seen or heard from again! Damn it all to hell! The blatant, outrageous hypocrisy of the shits at the helm of this lopsided, sinking, stinking shithole barge, knows no bounds! How the hell do they come off looking askance at another country’s perceived human rights abuses when this shithole is mired in human rights abuses and is damn fucking proud of it? Just ask Dick Cheney who is so fucking proud of the fact that innocent people were tortured to death, so proud to the point that he would do it all again in someone else’s heartbeat! Now if that don’t beat all? Why that heart that he stole from someone that was most likely cooling their heels in a U.S. prison, refuses to beat in his filthy ass chest is a mystery to me! Because if it was my heart that they had given to that depraved, blood thirsty, demonic bastard, it would have leaped up off the goddamn table and fled the goddamn building and thrown itself in front of a motherfucking bus so as not to get set inside that filthy bastard’s nasty ass chest! Meanwhile, Chelsea Manning is rotting in prison for exposing torture, war crimes, lies and hypocrisy, otherwise known as human rights abuses while Edward Snowden is in exile for exposing human rights abuses in the form of the U.S. government spying on us all as if we are all, enemies of the State. If that don’t take the goddamn cake!
The United States reigns supreme in human rights abuses and that is why China has told this shithole to “Fuck off!” when chastising them over their human rights abuses and so have other countries over this ‘pot calling the kettle, black’!
AGAIN, I say, “WORLD!!!” Get your act together! Get up off your ass and blow this shithole to hell! Send your goddamn secret messages by carrier pigeon if you have to in order to elude the goddamn NSA, CIA, FBI and all the rest of the spying eyes over here and carry this thing through to end the reign of this shithole and blow Great Britain’s ass to kingdom come along with it because the two go hand in hand. Cut your losses already and get with the program that this shit is never going to let up off your ass and the hypocrisy is overwhelmingly all up in your face. It is undeniable and they lie and don’t even blink!
WORLD, you’ve got three choices! Expect to kneel and continue to kowtow to this sick ass twisted shit here in America and in Great Britain or get sanctioned to pieces and then have drones and other missiles raining down on your heads or plot together and destroy this shit, once and for all! My continued hope is for the latter! Do yourselves and US, a goddamn favor! Blow it the hell up!!
I have come to the realization that I am never going to be quiet and unobtrusive, shy and reticent, easily intimidated, overwhelmed by the outrageous and staggering wrongs that are perpetrated against people each and every single day all over the world to the point that it would make me just want to throw my hands up in the air in defeat. I will not accept that there is nothing that I can do. There is something that we all can do. For one, we can collectively realize that when others are being persecuted, mistreated, humiliated, killed because they are the wrong complexion and wore the wrong apparel, tortured and wrongfully imprisoned, we should no longer ignore what is going on as if it will never impact us. I ask you to take a look around you. Do you not see anything that is going on today that will never have the potential to affect you? Look really, really hard if you have to. Although, you shouldn’t have to because what is in store for us is already all up in our face. We cannot continue to pretend that what we see is just a passing phase, an anomaly that will soon right itself. Have you not heard that a disease does not get better with time just because it is ignored? It festers and worsens and if not treated will eventually destroy the body sort of like a parasite that eats its way through the system of the host and eventually kills it by sucking the very life out of it, leaving an empty shell.
When we allow ourselves to be taken in and taken over by what is fed to us, be it from the government, from the mainstream media which is controlled by corporations that have amassed fortunes by sucking the lifeblood out of people all over the world, we are allowing the parasite in. We are allowing the disease to take over with impunity and we are trying to ignore the symptoms by going on as though nothing untoward is happening. Even when it is right before our very eyes, we don’t question. We just accept because we have been brainwashed into not thinking for ourselves. We think ‘Survivor’ is a reality tv show and is not indeed, a reality for people, the world over. Many of us just blindly accept the mindless drivel that is shoved down our throat that passes for entertainment and so the disease of silence, doing nothing, ignorance and apathy spreads. The parasites suck another host until it is dead and moves on to find another one, crossing oceans, transcending borders all the while sucking the lifeblood out of every host. Sucking up everything in its path until eventually nothing is left, just an empty, hollow shell.
Let me put it another way. Are we not always at war? Is there not always a riot somewhere, a deposed government official somewhere? chaos, pandemonium, bedlam? That is happening because the people know that the disease of abuse, misuse of them is rampant. They understand that a parasite is eating away at their rights, their liberty, their very existence and they are doing whatever it takes to destroy the disease, kill the parasite before it takes them over completely. People all over the world are starting to see, to understand and to realize that to defeat the enemy is not to become like the enemy but to push back against the enemy that is common to us all, those select few who are the parasites, the takers, the abusers, the users, the callous, the depraved. Those of us who live in the United States cannot point fingers at China or anywhere else and get outraged over human rights abuses when we have the same thing being played out here. We have people wrongfully imprisoned for merely shedding light on lies, people who get away with murder while others languish in prison because we have a racist criminal ‘justice’ system, a rollback of the Civil Rights era, segregation by incarceration and inequality in education, pay, housing, and the list goes on and on.
I am ever hopeful that we can come together and unite in a world that is controlled by a select few who exploit the many and sacrifice us for their privilege. I will stand by silently no more. I will not host the parasite nor will I let the disease run rampant. With every breath that I take, I will stand in solidarity with others who are oppressed. I will be concerned and vocal about human rights abuses not only in America, but in India, in China, in Bangladesh. I will condemn my government for committing atrocities not only here, but in other countries as well. I will not sit in silent complicity when what I see is wrong.
And lastly, some question, “just what can I do?” Organize, galvanize, energize your community! Remember, the ripple in the pond began with one small stone and a movement was born. Will you continue to concede to host the parasite until all that is left is an empty, hollow shell to be fed mindless drivel and constantly lied to or will you too, throw a stone in the pond? Never stop writing! Never stop thinking! Never stop questioning! Never just accept and most of all never remain silent! Silence is not golden, it is deadly acceptance!
