I get a phone call and the guy says “a mouth is a mouth”, he was saying that mouths were gender neutral. I disagreed with him but in these days , gender identity seems to be a problematic argument so I just told him “I don’t see it that way but you can. I’m sure it makes for fun barbecues when you’re playing spin the bottle”.

These phone anecdotes are pretty much true and I share them prior to them being distorted as to who said what. Still don’t know exactly why this same person keeps asking me these questions.

Or maybe he was just saying I got a pertty mouth……

WTF Moment

WTF

Starting a new category I’m going to call WTF Moments. I’ll start one that happened to me. There  was a short time in my life that I was homeless and sleeping out of my car. I was parked in the middle of a field and it was a rainy night. I fell into a deep sleep, the one that feels like you are hypnoed out and you can’t wake up. About half way through the night I felt something wet in my crotch area and woke up to find my belt undone, my jeans unzipped and pulled apart, my car door open and unlocked and, well, the one eye monster peeking over my boxers and wet. Didn’t see anyone around but definitely a WTF moment. I had been homeless for a year by that point and usually parked where there are cameras. The only difference that night was that I parked in a middle of a field where there were no cameras.

True story and not the only time this type of behavior occurred. I had a couple of break-ins into my home, one of them, a person pinched my rear, left a bruise, and left the sheets off of my pelvic area. Didn’t wake up, couldn’t wake up.

IMO: RITTENHOUSE WON’T BE CHARGED WITH MURDER

Kenosha

Rittenhouse, the dumb shit that he is, will not get charged with murder, if the accounts that I have read online are true. In a nutshell, this idiot of a kid went to Wisconsin to play superhero and then ran when someone went towards him to try and take his weapon. The other person, who I will not deride because that awful mistake cost him his life, made a serious error in judgement by going after the teenage mutant idiot. What his defense will be is that he feared for his life because the other young man tried to take his weapon, which I gather is legal in Wisconsin to open carry. Why Super Dumb Dumb brought a weapon to a peaceful march, maybe it was and maybe it wasn’t, in the first place is anyone’s guess because protecting someone’s business that didn’t hire you to do it or you are not legally authorized to do is ridiculous. The threats of beat him up and get him afterwards when he was running away are going to support his claims of self defense, which, him being a super moron, should have made no difference with his super dumb dumb strength. All in all, look for reckless endangerment charges to be added and a plea deal to be reached by the prosecutors. The only twist is the authorization to open carry in a state he doesn’t reside in or if someone heard him say he was going there to kill someone prior to it happening. In the end, Rittenhouse is probably going to jail but probably not for murder. This will haunt him for the rest of his life and I hope he takes the path of making amends and not the path of I didn’t do anything wrong.  Some on the left are going to be outraged that he didn’t get murder charges and sentenced to life  without the possibility of dessert and parole and some on the right are going to be outraged that they aren’t making a statue of him in some park but the fact is that this kid is a cautionary tale of let the people that are suppose to handle these actions, handle them. Privilege is not in the Constitution, it is what the Constitution rails against.

When moron becomes a felony, this kid has no defense, neither would a lot of people, ’til then, we pray for the lives that were lost needlessly and hope that wisdom prevails in the face of ignorance.

I feel bad for Rittenhouse because he is going to mature super quickly, As a wise old man once said, If you’e not a man without a gun, you’re not a man, The movie Friday. I’m all for the Second Amendment but I’m completely against open carry or even carrying in public. If you fear going out in public, you either have unfounded fears or we have a social system that has completely failed and we need to focus on education, of the mind and of civil society. I teach my kid to box, not so he can go out there and start fights but because I never want him to have to pick up a weapon to defend himself but I want him confident enough to be able to resolve matters peacefully without fear of getting hurt. IMO (In My Opinion) only cowards need to make a statement about how cool they are by carrying a gun openly, unless you are an LEO of course, then it’s your job. I will say that since his murder charge will be thrown out and that since his offense is one of immaturity, being an absolute dumb dumb, that MAYBE  he should probably seen as a youth offender if his lawyer can show that he has no priors and that his intentions weren’t to create harm and the introduction of mitigating circumstances point towards that direction, i.e. my son volunteered at a food pantry, things like that.

It would be easy for me to say that this kid deserves hard time because, historically speaking, me being Hispanic, Hispanics and African Americas rarely get the same consideration during the mitigating circumstance portion of a trial, but just because we get treated unfairly doesn’t mean that treating this kid unfairly would be right or even resolve any of the past, it would just be vengeance, that being said, he is still a Super Dumb Dumb.

HOW ABOUT JUSTICE FOR ENRIQUE CAMARENA’S FAMILY

Enrique-camarena1

Enrique “Kiki” Camarena Salazar (July 26, 1947 – February 9, 1985) was a Mexican-American special agent for the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). In February 1985 Camarena was kidnapped by members of the Guadalajara drug cartel while on assignment at the DEA resident agency in Guadalajara, Mexico. He was interrogated under torture and murdered. Three major drug traffickers were indicted and eventually convicted in Mexico for Camarena’s murder. The U.S. investigation into Camarena’s murder eventually led to three more trials in Los Angeles for Mexican nationals involved in the crime. The case continues to trouble U.S.-Mexican relations, most recently when one of the three convicted traffickers, Rafael Caro Quintero, was released from Mexican prison in 2013.

In 1984, acting on information from the DEA, 450 Mexican soldiers backed by helicopters destroyed a 1,000-hectare (2,500-acre) marijuana plantation in Allende (Chihuahua)[8][9] with an estimated annual production of $8 billion known as “Rancho Búfalo”.[10][11] Camarena, who was suspected of being the source of the information, was abducted in broad daylight on February 7, 1985, by corrupt Mexican officials working for the major drug traffickers in Mexico.

Camarena was taken to a residence located at 881 Lope de Vega in the colonia of Jardines del Bosque, in the western section of the city of Guadalajara, owned by Rafael Caro Quintero,[12] where he was tortured over a 30-hour period and then murdered. His skull was punctured by a metal object, and his ribs were broken.[13] Camarena’s body was found wrapped in plastic in a rural area outside the small town of La Angostura, in the state of Michoacán, on March 5, 1985. Preseted by Wikipedia

In the end the death of Enrique “kiki” Camarena is still not resolved and his torture and subsequent death seems to have government ties to both Mexico and the U.S. Thanks to companies like Amazon and Netflix, Enrique’s story is being told, all we need now is transparency for Enrique’s family. Eventually it will come to be but it would be nice if it could come while his wife is still alive to know the truth.

 

RNC SPEECHES

download

The RNC gave it’s round of speeches and they were pretty good. Their strategy was to begin with the world is ending (if you vote the wrong way) and ended with glory, glory hallelujah. I was impressed with the First Lady, even with the absurd criticism of her attire, it didn’t overshadow that she felt like a very genuine person. VP Pence is a seasoned speech giver that delivered his message straight to the heart and soul of his political congregation, not meant as a poke at his religious beliefs, I hold the same ones just don’t interpret them the same way in some cases. I see that this is going to be a highly contested election.

One thing though, I agree that this country has the ability to be the best in the world but we have to realize that there is problems and not be blind to those problems. I’m not voting for anyone that doesn’t know what those problems are because they won’t know to fix them. If this country was perfect, we wouldn’t need two or more political parties, we would have just one and sing kumbaya all day and all night.

EO!actNde

I was reading that African Americans are 2.1 times more likely to contract COVID-19 and that Hispanics are 1.1 times more likely to contract the disease than non-Hispanic white Americans. I made the comment that I found it odd that Hispanics rates were that high given the reasoning for the high rates. It was due to poor diet and lack of physical exercise. My thought was since Hispanics are essentially poorer(less steaks more chicken and beans), in general, and work the harder more demanding jobs i.e construction and farm labor, that the rates would be lower than everyone else but before I could respond my neighbor from across the street chimes in and says because we are always running from the police. Normally I would find a dig like that funny but given that he was completely serious, I had to stop laughing and say “Oh, you’re serious” and then point to the fact that Hispanics are the least likely to commit a crime of any nationality according to the CDC and FBI statistics, at least major crimes, but so as not to hurt his feelings I did tell him that we are number 1 on illegal immigration, so as not to bring him down too much and give him a reason to live.

AnECDoTe!

sleeping

It was Sunday and I was laying down enjoying a lazy day and my Colombian girlfriend told me it was time to get up so we can go to church. I told her that it was my day off and that I would wait for her in bed until she got back. She laid her head on my chest and started to softly rub my arm, gave me a kiss on my chest. She said in the sweetest voice “come with me, like that we can be together in heaven too”. I said “We have to be together in heaven too!?” All I remember after that is more spanish words than I grew up with and my mom doesn’t speak English, thank god she was going to church so she could get some forgiving, didn’t know that there was that many dirty Spanish words in the Spanish language, and that the sermon wasn’t that bad.

There was a silver lining. During her berating of my questioning our afterlife, the certain things that I could pick up in her multiple rapid fire Spanish tongue lashing was that when she slapped my behind and told me to get up and to get ready, I told her alright, I have to take a shower, she said hurry up, we’ll take a shower together to save time. Alright, I’m starting to like Church. It didn’t save any time.
