Yes We Really Are "That Stupid" or We Appear to Be

Been watching the news tonight, LIVE coverage of Occupy Los Angeles, and no one that's been interviewed, (so far) knows why they are occupying-that is what is really sad-they are willing to get arrested but don't even know why. Oh Americans making our country look "that stupid" constantly.

FIRST AMENDMENT!

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Or did people skip government class in the 8th grade? This is the FIRST AMENDMENT, first as in number one. FREEDOM OF SPEECH-this is America, isn't it?

I love my country, but some days are harder than others. I mean, really people. What the F is going on? This country has the FREEDOM OF SPEECH and that means people can speak freely without being pepper sprayed? I mean, really what is going on?

Do we have to go back to an era where our heroes are bank robbers just because someone is sticking it to the banks??

Will there be a repeat of Kent State (see yesterday's blog)?

How will this end?

Have We Learned Nothing?

May 4th, 1970 4 students were shot by police at a rally at Kent State University in Kent Ohio. The police fired 67 rounds over a period of 13 seconds, killing four students and wounding nine others.

Jan 30, 1972 14 innocent people were shot and killed during a peaceful demonstration in Derry, Northern Ireland. Twenty-six unarmed civil rights protesters and bystanders were shot by soldiers of the British Army. Thirteen males, seven of whom were teenagers, died immediately or soon after, while the death of another man four and a half months later was attributed to the injuries he received on that day. Two protesters were also injured when they were run down by army vehicles. Five of those wounded were shot in the back.

Nov 16, 2011 Police spray pepper spray into the eyes of an 84 year old in Seattle. Jennifer Fox lost her baby after being sprayed in the face and beaten by police.
Oakland, Davis, NYC-when will it end?

All I can say is WTF police? Has history taught you nothing?

I'm just sayin'

BROKEN


I was watching Private Practice last night for the "Intervention" episode and it was truly amazing-well the first part. I didn't care as much for the 2nd episode as the first one-maybe just the direction. In any case, Charlotte, (Kadee Strickland) was telling Amelia, (Caterina Scorsone) how she would do something terrible, like kill someone and never come back from that.

I know this is different, but it finally hit me. All these years since my mother died (2004-Lung cancer) I am broken and I haven't made it back yet. It just isn't the same anymore. Sure I laugh, and play and have great friends etc, but it broke me. I am not sure why it's so hard-I mean, everyone loses their parents-or at least that's the way it's supposed to be.

That said, I miss her every single day and some days it's beyond sad and other days I am okay. The way she described not making it back from something is exactly how I feel. I'll never be the same again, even if I am okay and happy, I'm broken.

It's weird though that this particular episode made sense-grief is an evil bitch isn't she?

UGH Some People Are Just Mean & Miserable


So the other day, this "friend" of mine was ranting, again, about something that has nothing to do with him and asking people to boycott Target, because he is outraged that some people are working late on Thanksgiving night to get ready for black Friday the next day. This guy isn't even American and doesn't work at Target and neither does anyone in his family-he just likes to bitch and complain. I stupidly-little did I know what was coming-replied to his post saying that it wasn't a big deal lots of people work on Thanksgiving and not just retail, but I agreed that the black Friday thing was getting out of hand-it is, but so what? Why does it bother anyone?

Later that day several people had posted on his wall disagreeing with him, but I got it. He took it upon himself to delete me and then send me a nasty email message telling me that I was trying to sound smart AND that it's only because I have no family that I didn't mind working on Thanksgiving-which I am not this year-usually I do, but not because I have no family because I work in the film industry and a lot of the time we are on deadlines-I love my job, so it doesn't bother me. As well in high school I worked in a movie theater, then I worked at restaurants so it's not a big deal. That said, it is beyond shitty to remind someone that their parents are gone, especially when that person is still grieving.

I honestly think that Facebook is a great place to network, but for some people it's just a place to rant and complain about everything thing instead of being happy.

Happy Thanksgiving to this douchebag and maybe instead of bitching and moaning this year he will actually spend time being thankful for something-but I doubt it, it isn't his style.

Sick of Politics and. . .

I am so over politics! I can honestly say that the more the democrats push their hatred for the Republicans-who let's face it have gone completely stark raving mad this past year-down my throats the more I want to move to Canada. I am so sick of all of it. Really done.

I am sick of people saying how much they hate America-no one is forcing you to stay. America is pretty damn great even if we are having some problems.

We are encouraged to follow our dreams-from birth-for the most part we are.
We are taught to be confident and outgoing.
We are raised believing that we can achieve anything.
We have more opportunities than most places.

Yes we have debt, yes we have issues-but it's still a great place to live and be a part of.

I am so sick to death of people from other countries coming here and then bitching all the live long day about our president, about past presidents-seriously go home or be thankful.

Just saying, it is getting on my last nerve people.

GOOGLE Before You Rant


I have to bitch and moan a little bit because lately somethings have been really bugging me on Facebook.
First of all it's a social network not a place to whine and complain all the live long day about politics. Enough already-enough! Seriously why don't these people start a blog? You wouldn't walk into work or into a mall and start spewing your political rants? Or would you? I don't get it and am getting really sick of people's closed minded political agendas all the live long day when I go onto my FB page. Seriously!
And on that note, this Occupy movement? Really? I am as left as they come, but honestly this is not well organized. I went to two of these rallies and more than half the people there didn't even know why they were there. You people want to shut down B0fA? Really and render some 300,000 people out of work? How is that making anything better? It isn't. I am all for freedom of speech, but get a clue before you hold a sign about closing down anything that is giving Americans jobs in this economy. It's just plain silly to me.
As well, we all know the Republicans hate the Democrats and the reverse-we get it. No need to rant every single day on your page or if you must-which clearly you do-do your research. GW-was NOT the reason Sept 11th happened. Obama is not the reason we are in debt. Quit blaming everyone and do your research.
I think FB has helped in the dumbing down of the world. People see something on someone's page and agree without doing any reading on the subject. I had a friend a couple years ago going on and on about socialism and how we would lose all our rights and be controlled-basically she was describing Communism and when I called her on it, she said, "well you know, Fascism, Communism and Socialism are all the same." SERIOUSLY? UGH....as well I have another friend always going on and on about he is a Capitalist and yet he wants everyone in America to have the same income range and have gov. help on stuff-hello? That is Socialism.
I am not saying I have all the answers here-but if I choose to rant-I at least, at the very least, go to this great new invention called GOOGLE.

I'm Just Sayin'
