30 years of charges and you tell her to do something no man should force a woman to do. Then you hide behind your authority. It’s your job to prevent it but you’ve done it more than anyone else in prison and you got away with it too. You’re awesome. That’s not the law. I can see why women don’t report these cases. Who’s going to help them. You just add on to the humiliation.
Don’t you think it’s about time we release discovery?
Jeremy (White guy, blond buzz cut, about 230, all steroids, spoke to me at the gym no tattoos that were visible on upper body, probably not his real name, just named him that) So as not to confuse him with anyone else whose name is really Jeremy.
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.
I get a phone call and the person tells me “you’re a racist” I tell him “I think that you have a problem with Hispanics”. The person says “no I don’t, you do”. I tell ’em “I am Hispanic”. They say “no you’re not, you lying spic”. I just reply “huh”.
My son was walking home from school when someone drove by and yelled at him “go back to Mexico”. My son, who was born in Colombia (which being a hispanic/LatinX country, automatically gives you Mexican nationality or at least that’s what the crazies think) but born a U.S. citizen, much like Ted Cruz’s situation, because I, his father, am a naturalized U.S. citizen, responded, “You need me, who are you going to hate if I leave, yourself”. While this a true story, his response was changed because he is a minor under the age of 14 at the time. All expletives were removed because I taught him better than that. (I was on the phone when that happened and the conversation was recorded and I’m the one that said the expletives, not him)
According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, roughly 800,000 children are reported missing each year in the United States — that’s roughly 2,000 per day. Of those, there are 115 child “stranger abduction” cases each year, which means the child was taken by an unknown person. (ABC News)
How can this be possible today with all of our technology unless our technology is the reason that makes it possible.
The latest political move to garner votes is that the President is rescinding an order from the Obama administration to place affordable housing in suburban neighborhoods. I think that people have a misconception of what is going on here. First it is my opinion that this is not a Black issue, because when you say that it is, you are saying that Black people are the only poor people, and that simply is not true and it’s somewhat demeaning. The other thing you are saying is that Black, Hispanic or Asian people that live in the suburbs wouldn’t mind having our homes devalued, that also is simply not true. Why won’t they put affordable housing in neighborhoods with million dollar mansions? Everyone is missing the point here. The reason people try to make it to the suburbs or Jeff Bezo’s type neighborhoods is because we love our children and want them to have a better education. If the schools in the urban neighborhoods were equal to the schools in the ritzy neighborhoods, then people wouldn’t move anywhere. Hell, why would I pay that crazy amount of taxes when I can pay lower taxes and get the same kind of education for myself or my kids. The fact is education should be equal but it isn’t. That’s what keeps crime going and what drives poverty. I don’t care about moving into your neighborhood, I care about giving my child the best shot at realizing his potential. If the politicians would stop arguing about who maintains control of the government and pay attention to the real problems, they would agree and do something about substandard education.
In all seriousness, I don’t know why affordable housing would devalue homes. I don’t understand the economics of it. The schools are still good, and that’s the main reason why people move into neighborhoods.
Father kills 10 year old after saying he hears voices. I can’t imagine, nor do I want to, what that child went through. I wonder if any of those voices were kind enough to tell him to stop before he did it. I guess not.
This is one of the reasons why I teach my kid to box. I rather he defend himself or take the problem outside then be hurt or hurt anyone seriously. Whatever demons this kid had whispering stuff to him, he probably had no other outlet that he could see. If he had more tools in the toolbox, he could have handled the problem better. Obviously this coach is a brave and a selfless individual.
Boxing showed me restraint and taught me how to walk away from confrontations. It also showed not to hate the other person because at the end, you always shake hands, whether you got the better or if you got the worst of the match. It taught me to control my emotions and not to get overly worked up. If you ever watch a boxing match, you will see that the person that comes out to emotional and overly hyped will usually lose, there’s always an exception to the rule. More importantly, boxing taught me that getting punched in the face is no fun and that I would like to avoid that. This young man did not know how to box and this is what he tried to do. The bad thing about boxing is that any words that were misspelled or any grammatical errors might also be due to boxing but I didn’t really box enough to blame the sport for being a dumb dumb. Link
You have to admire Ellen and President Bush, they get to sit in a box seat and watch the Dallas Cowboys. The story wasn’t how the Cowboys blew a game to Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, it was that she sat next to the former President. They are labeling her a traitor of some sort and that we she did was wrong. I disagree, all misconceptions and/or wrongful biases are only changed through conversation. I think it’s great that Ellen is sitting next to President Bush. She is obviously a very intelligent, charismatic lady with many wonderful qualities. If anyone can convince a person that they are wrong about something, it’s Ellen. If you think that you can change someone’s mind by yelling, trying to humiliate them or arguing or fighting, then you really don’t get the big picture of how things really work. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and the only way you can change that opinion is through conversation and good deeds. I’m Hispanic, do you think that I can change the mind of someone that doesn’t like Hispanics by fighting them or cursing at them, no, I have to show them that their biases are misconceived notions brought by fear of the unknown. I try to show them that I’m polite, hard working and care about everyone regardless of their biases. I think what she did was an amazing testament on how to handle yourself and how to be a grown up in the digital/social media age. Ellen doesn’t need to apologize, she needs to be applauded. Haters have to hate, I guess, because if they didn’t, they would cease to exist. Everyone criticizes the former President for some of his stances and refuse to look at other advancements he made in civil rights. It’s one of those things that some people can only see the bad and none of the good because of his political affiliation. These are the type of people that if you bought them a house but accidentally ran over their dog, the only thing they would say about you is that you killed their fluffy, who was a real bitch by the way.
