So proud of how this administration has handled the Ukraine situation. They have stepped up and, short of going knuckles up themselves, have supported and dared a bully to take them on while levying some strong sanctions and supporting Ukraine with military aid. All the while working with the European Union and not trying to overshadow them. I think it was handled really well to date and hopefully it has the intended results it is trying to achieve. At least I can be in awe of how this country can step up when it needs to.
I always said that a common foe was needed to bring (almost) everyone together, I always thought it was going to be an attack from Mars, well, who knows, maybe Putin is a martian. Still have those detractors though. LOL, I have a feeling they would be on the martians’ side if Mars did attack.
This whole thing is crazy, it should be a perfect time to come together as a nation and find common ground, so imagine my dismay when the one party that is staunchly anti-communism, staunchly anti-socialism, since the days of “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down that wall” Ronald Reagan, starts to take the side of the “President” of Russia and tries to make him some kind of folklore hero that is carrying out some kind of justice, to be fair though, it’s only a select few and not the majority. This is how far the division in our politics has sunk. I have said it before, that these political opponents, with their cancel culture of each other and their ever expanding hatred of each other, will ruin this country over petty shit that can be resolved over a few beers. No one should take the side of a bully over attacking a smaller country that is attacked because they are simply weaker or smaller. This a bad omen. Hopefully we can snap out of it. I am glad to see that some people like Romney and Cheney are trying to help the party keep focus. The old adage of the enemy of my enemy comes to mind, who knew that some people would pick Russia over their own citizens as the lesser enemy. BTW, the guy that said that was taken out by the enemy he supported. A little history reminder.
Disclaimer: mannysblog does not promote fascism but intends to educate it’s own blog and the few people that read it. mannysblog believes fascism is wrong and has no place in a civil society… if we can ever find one.
1. often capitalized : a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.
Giovanni Gentile – called the father of fascism was an Italian philosopher and proof that any asshole can be called a philosopher
Benito Mussolini – Former Italian prime minister and angry midget. Later shot by someone that was unhappy with his unhospitable hospitality.
Adolph Hitler – Former German Chancellor turned Furher…. no…fuerhur… that’s not right… fewer…. there. Fewer when he decided to commit suicide when he found out that he wasn’t sporting a mustache but a furry skirt for his nose.
Fascism is wrong and obviously being called a fascist is an insult. So when you say it… make sure you’re not in front of a mirror.
“Race” is usually associated with biology and linked with physical characteristics such as skin color or hair texture. “Ethnicity” is linked with cultural expression and identification. However, both are social constructs used to categorize and characterize seemingly distinct populations.
relating to Spain or to Spanish-speaking countries, especially those of Latin America.
a Spanish-speaking person living in the US, especially one of Latin American descent.
Federal policy defines “Hispanic” not as a race, but as an ethnicity. And it prescribes that Hispanics can in fact be of any race.
Definitions for Racial and Ethnic Categories
American Indian or Alaska Native. …
Black or African American. …
Hispanic or Latino. …
Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander. …
(I really searched but could not find human as a race…. We are going to have to wait for those aliens to invade… ehhh foreign visitors…. wait….. races from another planet…. to be one race.)
It’s funny…right… laugh with me. hahhaahahaa hardy har har. What’s so funny, how some words can all of a sudden become a culture or a movement. The best example of today is “woke”. A slang term that someone invented that simply means be aware… be aware of the truth… don’t get hustled or taken. Now, that word spurned a movement. That word started something… but it wasn’t the word that did it, it was someone that used the popularity of that word for their own measures. For better or worse, the word woke isn’t bad… another way of saying it is “Timeo Danaos et dona ferentes” That’s right… I know… shit is that greek or latin… well I know google… it roughly translates to “Beware of Greeks bearing gifts”, and it is a Latin phrase from Aeneid, a Latin epic poem written by Virgil. … In modern English, it is used as a proverb to warn against trusting an enemy or adversary, even when they appear to be making an enticing offer. Woke. When it wasn’t a movement to cancel people or attached to bullshit… it was a an epic poem by modern day slangsters, a one word poem, snap your fingers with me. Now that is used to influence people in what might be dubious ways or attached to silly, not meaning blessed with worthiness, situations, it has lost its luster and its panache. People always screw shit up. In my opinion, the hijacking of these words is due to greed, not really caring about the altruistic definitions of influential words, and just using it to line your pockets. That’s why my blog is free, that and because no normal person would pay to read it, but mainly that altruism thing. Lol… I am serious.
(in Hinduism and Buddhism) the sum of a person’s actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences.
INFORMAL destiny or fate, following as effect from cause
(From livescience.com) What is the real meaning of karma?
Karma, a Sanskrit word that roughly translates to “action,” is a core concept in some Eastern religions, including Hinduism and Buddhism. … With karma, like causes produce like effects; that is, a good deed will lead to a future beneficial effect, while a bad deed will lead to a future harmful effect.
a synonym for karma… kismet
People over analyze the word and use it inappropriately… I certainly most likely have. In the end it is just a word with a definition, not a religion…. and a likely pseudonym of a stripper.
I got the inspiration from a political comedy show and funny mfer… Bill Mahr. I always said that comedians, the good ones, are the best philosophers, they make you think while they make you laugh.
If you are thinking that karma has a place in religion, I think so, but not the way we think about it. Not in personal terms. God doesn’t only love one person and gets karma for that person. Its probably in a more grand scale, like climate change. Treat the earth like shit and karma has its role. The bible says, hahahaha, this would drive Bill Mahr crazy, that you divide your farm into seven plots and you sow from six of them while you let one rest and heal itself. The next harvest you let another heal itself, while you use the other six. This has been scientifically proven to be right, but people don’t do that, they just use all the land and don’t allow for the earth to repair itself. It basically says treat the earth kindly, but we don’t and now we have this. I can see mushroom clouds on top of people’s heads right now quoting religion to defend climate change policies.
See if I can give an example. A dip shit robs a bank, he gets caught and goes to jail. That is karma…also can be called justice, among other things. A wall street guy allows for shitty mortgages and he gets rich… that’s called fucked up.
Like every other word, the definition of karma changes over time when people use it wrong and no one corrects them. Here are some examples….
Silly. Original meaning: Blessed with worthiness….. not anymore
Flux. Original meaning: Diarrhoea or dysentry…. ha… not even close
Fudge. Original meaning: Lies and nonsense…. Well, some people do eat both up without hesitation
Leech. Original meaning: A doctor or healer…. Now, it’s the guy from the rich and famous
Stripe. Original meaning: A mark on the skin from a lash…. how definitions change. The more stripes you get in the military is now a good thing. Not back then.
I told myself that I wouldn’t write about this mess. I was like Manny, don’t even blarticle this nonsense, it will just get in you trouble. Then other Manny was like, no one reads your lousy blog anyway, who cares if you comment.. Then first Manny was like yeah, but this is so controversial, and everything on the internet stays living forever. Then other Manny was like … Dude, nobody gives a shit what you have to say so say what you want. Alright other Manny… here I go. (just so you know, this is literary freedom, fiction, framework, there is only one Manny and I don’t have a split personality disorder, this is my way of saying that I wrestled over the decision of writing this blarticle and that was my way of expressing it. I thank the creators of the show Archer for the inspiration).
You know what the problem of cancel culture is, it’s that you have to be perfect. You can’t make any mistakes or you are sent to the abyss. And let me tell you something, that abyss is getting quite full. So many perfect people in this world not willing to hear an explanation, not willing to forgive a mistake, so elite…. We should just let them tell us what we should do for every step of our lives. You know why socially dumb people stay socially dumb, because at the first dumb mistake they make, they are outcast, then they find themselves with the really shitty people who befriend them and eat their minds away and become really socially stupid. I’m hoping you get what I was meaning their. Everyone will, in their lifetime, say something socially wrong and everyone will offend someone else’s culture, most of the time without thinking or not meaning it the way that it came out. Its incumbent on them to then atone for their mistakes and it is your decision to forgive or hold on to that grudge. If that insensitivity is a prolonged pattern, especially after being told that what they were saying was wrong, then I can see not wanting to be associated with that person, but in the case of Mr. Joe Rogan, it doesn’t seem like it was something that was meant to be intentionally hurtful, I will admit though, I do not listen to his show but I don’t listen to any podcast.
The you vs. them (I’m not in your bullshit) situation in this country, and there definitely is one, don’t listen to these politicians that tell you otherwise, is very real and only getting worse. And that is on both sides. They want to keep that hate because they have hate in their heart. If you are not willing to have a conversation about it, to educate people so they can see why what they say or said was hurtful, so they can alter their decisions in the future, then you might as well go ahead and buy that popcorn and lawn chair and watch this country tear itself apart. No one is perfect, everyone is human… some people just want to keep those fires of racial hatred going because it benefits them and most likely their pocketbook. It benefits this country to have the conversation and to just get along, is it get along or is it get alone.. no that’s not it.. get a loan… I’m pretty sure it’s get along. I bet you that none of these boycotters bothered to call Joe and seek an explanation or hear his side of the story. That being said…. Joe Rogan could be a complete asshole, wtf do I know. But if it was me, I would have reached out to him before making a decision due to him, the courtesy of a conversation and maybe an explanation and possibly an apology and most likely a definite understanding of the situation.
People are not born with hate they are taught it. They can be taught to love too. Jesus, that was really wussy, but I’ll stick to that ideology.
Like I said before, the only ones that benefit from racial or any kind of hatred are people that make money off of it and…. lol… believe it or not, the government. Too busy hating each other to see some of the crazy shit that they are pulling off. I mean, c’mon, MKUltra, Tuskegee experiments, forced unnecessary hysterectomies of Hispanic women in detention and the list goes on for a while. And that’s just federal, the things the States have done would make make your head into a mushroom cloud. Probably f’ed up this whole conversation with this last paragraph. Keeping it real.
