A RANT ....


I've been away for a while because I felt it was better for me, but in light of the past week I just had to come back and vent. 

NUMBER ONE!  I hate this little girl.  She of bleached hair and post-rhinoplasty pontificating about illegal aliens which I am certain has never EVER met nor spoken to in her entire life.  Here is what our Princess of Panty Shields said:

“You don’t just come into this country with low skills, low education, not understanding the language and come into our country because someone says it makes them feel nice,” Lahren, 25, told Fox News host Jesse Watters on his show Watters World Saturday night. “That’s not what this country is based on.”
“These people need to understand that it’s a privilege to be an American and it’s a privilege that you work toward – its not a right,” she continued.

Tomi .... Here's WHY people from Central America and Mexico come here illegally.

No. 1:  It takes YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS to get here if you are from Mexico or Central America.

However, if you are Filipino, no problem.  For every 10 tourist or business visa applications filed with the United States embassy in Manila, about seven get approved?  “It’s a 70 percent approval rate, which is pretty good,” according to Consul General Michael R. Schimmel.

Doesn't seem fair, right?

We can tell people to wait their turn in line, but, for example, for a Mexican (or a Guatemalan) who does not have a college degree and has no close relatives who are U.S. citizens or green card-holders, there is almost certainly no line for them to wait in: without reform to the legal system, they will not be able to migrate “the legal way” to the U.S., not if they wait ten years, not if they wait fifty years, according to the current immigration process.

However, if you're super rich, you can come here on the EB-5 program which is designed for an investor who will invest $1 million, or $500,000 if the business is located within a Targeted Employment Area, and create 10+ full-time, permanent jobs.

So money and social status plays a big part in who gets into the U.S. and who does not.

Little girls like Tomi Lahren ought to do their homework before they start spouting off.  Life in America, FOR MANY, is not fair Tomi.  But YOU, of the blonde, caucasion persuasion who grew up in South Dakota where nary a black person or Mexican person reside, know not of what you speak.

My advice to you is:

1.  Go back to school and study the REAL history of America. 

2.  Actually meet, make friends with, and GET TO KNOW, people who do not look like you, or pray like you.  You really might be surprised to find out that a lot of those brown people are a lot more like you than you think. 

3.  Then, grow a heart.  Get a spiritual practice and PRACTICE IT.  Like, oh .... I don't know, .... that place in the bible where it says "do unto others?"  Yeah.  Like that. 

We'll wait.  Because it takes TIME to BECOME a whole person.  You're very young.  A twenty-five year old is still wet behind the ears on the scale of life-experience.  Why you're still drinking a bottle ... metaphorically speaking.  Also books.  Read lots and lots of books. 

Here are a few authors that might open your eyes.  Don't let some of these names scare you as I'm sure your friends on Fox News told you they're all socialists. 

1.  Noam Chomsky;

2.  Howard Zinn;

3.  Chris Hedges.

Then, if your head did not explode, you can move onto:

1.  Thomas Merton;

2.  Thomas Keating;

3.  Dorothy Day.

I promise.  They're not nearly as subversive as you've heard.

And last but not least .... Gloria Steinem.  I'd start with "Revolution from Within."

So here’s the thing.  Until a crazed gunman shoots up Trump Tower, or the NRA’s headquarters, etc., et al. NOTHING will ever be done about gun control.  The NRA is just too powerful. 


The senseless death of little children, teenagers, college kids, worshipers at mosques/churches/synagogues and partiers at nightclubs or concerts are nothing more than collateral damage to this super powerful gun lobby.  I dont understand it.  No one with a heart or a mind that processes thoughts and is able to FEEL empathy can understand it either. 


There are whole bodies of people, organizations, political forces that lack this understanding.  Logical thought / emotional empathy.  It is how they are able to move about in the world and make the decisions they make and institute the laws that serve their bottom line.  MONEY.


It’s all been said before.  However, look at these faces …


Kids whose lives were ripped away from them.  All of the beautiful possibilities that will never be realized because they’re DEAD. They aren’t coming back.  EVER.  Their loved ones will never be the same.  There will always be an empty chair at dinner or special occasions.  There will always be the pain of “what if” … parents who will never see their son or daughter married, or be grandparents.  It’s all too heartbreaking to imagine. 


But thanks.  Your “thoughts and prayers” mean so much to us …


Does anyone else find this disturbing?

The NRA needs to own up.  And every politician who takes money from them need to own up.  You are all GUILTY of murder by association.  You can cite the second amendment until you’re blue in the face.  A gun does not fire itself.  And NO …. A good guy with a gun is not going to save an entire school from an insane guy with an AR-15. 


In watching some of the coverage I was really impressed with the students who spoke out against the NRA and the government’s lack of initiative in doing anything to prevent shootings like this.  And I do believe that this particular shooting is going to be the one that changes things.  Like the Harvey Weinstein scandal … a REAL movement is going to take place and citizens are going to demand action. 


So get ready GOP.  You’ve got a lot to answer for.  And the votes you don’t get will show you just how much.
