Slowly, it Evolves…Victims Can No Longer Isolate Themselves.

I was very reclusive in my youth. I joked around about drinking and partying and such, in the fashion of Cheech and Chong.  I discovered after a while that I was merely trying to “fit in”.  I have since discovered that I don’t have to fit in to any particular niche.  I am who I am. People can accept me or not accept me, but there are two things about me that never change over time. I am honest.  I speak my mind.  Not many people can handle that trait.  It comes from having been through a lot of hell, much I do not really discuss, but when I hear people talk as if their pain is the only one that matters, I can come unglued. 

There are different types of suffering and abuse in this world.  I know it from a place no one should ever have had to experience it–at home.  I am currently writing a book on this, but for those of you who follow my bullying blogs, I don’t see how we can possibly stop bullying or get anything productive done in society by  isolating ourselves from one another.  The pain of the homosexual child being bullied is every bit as real and intense as the child who gets beaten, raped and abused at home–only to come to school to suffer the taunts of those bullies (and sometimes get assaulted even further). 

Here is the point of my post.  Anyone who has ever been bullied has experienced their own type of prison.  That prison was the closest thing to Hell on Earth for many people.  However, as intense as our pain is, we must unite with others who have been bullied and abused to make our voices heard as one voice.  If not, we are failing every generation that follows.   It does not matter if one is homosexual or not, or if one is from another country or not.  What matters is that a united front stands a better chance of accomplishing anything than a divided front.   We are failing our children if we do not address this as one voice, one people and one nation.

I am no activist and do not wish to be so now.  However there is/are voice(s) out there that people  will hear.  You voice might prevent the next Jonesboro.  Your voice might prevent the next Columbine.  Your voice might stop the next child from taking matters into his or her own hands to address his/her abusers and ruin the rest of his/her life.

Where are you?  This country needs you to get together and speak up.  The children are depending on you.  Forget the news networks.  None of them talk much about this until something major happens!  It is time to be proactive and not reactive.  You do not have to have a child in public school to ask a school board what is being done to stop school violence and make them answer.  People around the world must unite to stop bullying on a global scale as well.  

It is time to quit comparing battle scars with each other (and with other groups and unite).   My pain is no less or more intense than yours even if it is a different situation. Being separate does not solve anything.  You will get told what you “want to hear” and then nothing will come of it, but if people who have been severely abused and bullied were to rally together–someone would listen and take notice.

I am going through a healing process myself–even after all these years. I am starting to see some things differently, yet some things are unchanged.  I suppose we will all be evolving and changing throughout life.  Give me time. I am getting there and so will you.  We can work on this together,  can we not?  I do not feel that isolating ourselves as groups from one another is an option any longer.

Bullying a Teacher is not Free Speech!.   And people wonder why there is a teacher shortage…Give me a break!

Womens’ Rights Under A Threat? They May Very Well Be…Please Read…

Before I go further into this, let me inform you that I am a Christian.  I will also inform you that I am an ANGRY Christian.  I will not apologize for that because all women right now face a threat to their own autonomy greater than has ever been faced since our Suffragette ancestors got us the right to vote. Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton are turning over in their graves, I’m sure. 

I have read some rather ridiculous stuff in the news lately, but this one really got me upset. WHY would anyone consider Sharia Law when it comes to sentencing for crimes? I am referring to the article in this link I will post here:

 http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2011/01/plea-deal-for-muslim-dad-in-arizona-who-murdered-his-20-year-old-daughter-for-being-too-americanized.html?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=facebook

This man, who incidentally took an oath to be an AMERICAN citizen is now trying to claim that the cold-blooded murder of his 21-year-old daughter is an “honor killing”. Scrap the religious argument here for a minute. This guy SHOULD be considered an infidel for even TAKING an oath of citizenship–especially since our constitution is founded on the principles of Christianity.  Does that mean that the United States is a “Christian Nation”.  No.  However, Christianity involves free will–Islam does not.  THIS is what needs to be made clear.  Anyway, no Islamic nation should excuse this “oversight” on his part when he took an oath of citizenship either. If he were a true Muslim, he wouldn’t have taken the oath to defend our constitution. THAT is my opinion on that issue. That being said, as far as I am concerned, he is only seeking to escape the death penalty. That MIGHT fly in Iraq, where he is from, but he is in OUR country and is now being tried under OUR laws.  I am not in support of the death penalty, but I am also not in support of losing my right to voice that opinion either, and I don’t think the females who do support the death penalty want to lose their autonomy either.  That is the danger if judges start ruling in favor of such a system for ANYONE.  Mark my words, Sharia Law being used in this country will erode the rights of women and that cannot be allowed!

If he says his daughter was “too Americanized”, then what the heck did he expect to happen when he became an American himself? Hello! Is anyone out there listening to this question? When in ROME, as the cliché goes, you do as the Romans do. WHEN in America, you do as WE do–or don’t become a citizen. Simple? It should be…

Evidently the girl’s parents were not happy when she divorced a cousin she was forced to marry. HELLO AGAIN! We are in AMERICA. Divorce is LEGAL. Sharia Law is not applicable in this country! Are any judges reading this? She was also an “American”. WHO is defending her rights as a victim? Read the text messages she sent to her friend. Her father was a threat to her right to live the American dream. She was a threat to his macho “I am a god” authority, which is protected under the culture from which he CAME, but NOT here. OR is it?

I want everyone to think about some of the history of the United States for a few moments. HOW LONG have women had the right to vote, divorce, etc…? Not that long, right? Well, if you want to refresh your memory, check the following link:

As you can see, our female ancestors went through Hades to ensure the future generations that they also had certain inalienable rights that men had no right to take away–and it does not matter what religion they might be either. How does this tie into the case regarding THE plea bargains? Think about it. It sets a dangerous precedent allowing judges to re-interpret existing laws beyond their own jurisprudence, for starters.

It also violates the principal of separation of church and state to allow Sharia Law to be implemented in to our penal codes in this country. It relegates women to being chattel, a practice which too many American women went through hell to put a stop to in the past two centuries. All of these “laws” were written for the benefit of men being in control of their spouses and daughters as if they were to be used merely to breed and keep them happy. If anyone thinks that this law will only be applied toward the members of the Muslim faith in this country, they had better think again. It will ultimately extend to all when judges of this faith get appointed to the judge’s benches around the nation. I ask the American people this. Do they really think if Muslim Extremists were to end up running our country that Hollywood celebrities who embrace homosexuality and women’s rights would be allowed to live under their rule? I don’t think so. If men will kill their own daughters for being too “American”, what makes these people think that they will stop with their own offspring? Please don’t come back and tell me the ones doing these acts are “extremists”. They aren’t when they first come here for citizenship. They come in suits, ties and are well dressed, and some of the women who are in this will also be well dressed for show and tell, to get women to think “Oh, this isn’t as bad as they say.” I guess that when this country is finally subjected to the forced marriages and (in extreme cases) the practice of Female Genital Mutilation, that people will finally wake up and see that this is more than a real threat. Don’t kid yourselves. They are wolves in sheep’s clothing. These are educated oppressors sent to accomplish one goal–to take the world for Allah by whatever means necessary even though their Quran CLEARLY states for them to not make war with anyone who doesn’t make war with them first. I know what the Quran says, because I’ve read it. If they cannot do it by gradually implementing Sharia Law, one can rest assured that they will take a lesson from Lenin and Stalin and start a war in due time.

If nothing else, women should be standing shoulder to shoulder, and toe to toe with the gay community in opposition to this implementation because it puts ALL of us at risk–and it doesn’t matter if one is gay, straight, celibate, or whatever. IF you are not a Muslim, you are an infidel.  Below is an absolute WORST case scenario:

Their goal will be to convert you if you are not a homosexual and to kill you if you are one. If you don’t believe that, then do your homework. Look at how Sharia Law handles such matters. As for heterosexuals, they will kill you (most likely) regardless–especially when they realize that you would rather die on your feet than to beg on your knees. In other words, in their eyes, if you do not submit to their so-called divine authority given by Allah, you will die anyway.  I realize this is a worst case scenario, but one must realize that this is the law that extremists are trying to enforce in other countries as we speak! 

I know many Christians do not want to hear the above statement, but it is my opinion. God loves homosexuals, and it is not my job to judge or condemn them, but I do feel that they will not turn to God if the god the church continues to show them offers no hope of redemption, but of condemnation. I have seen churches with people in them who do not show an example of Christ’s love, but of hatred. This is NOT godly behavior and he will not honor it. Judgment does begin with the house of God if the bible be true, and let’s just assume it is…That means the church gets theirs before the non-believers they failed to lead to the Lord are to be judged. I also feel that the bible says “Judge not lest ye be judged” for a reason. Think about it. Now back to my point about Sharia Law:

As Americans this is one issue we should all be united on. We should not be worried about whether we are being “sensitive to their religion” when it is a religion that seeks to conquer others and destroy their way of life. Given the supreme court rulings in 1962, I would say we are covered since the court at that time wasn’t sensitive to anyone else’s needs but Madeline Murray O’Hair’s.  That is fine.  So be it.  But they have NO right to try to allow subversive judges and attorneys to inject this form of religious law into our system NOW.  That ruling covered that.  It is unconstitutional and I really don’t think the atheists will put up with it either since AGAIN, it is now an issue of WOMENS’ RIGHTS–not Christian, Jew, Atheist or Hindu rights–but WOMENS’ RIGHTS FOR ALL WOMEN.  It is time we learned the lessons of what is going on in Britain and the rest of Europe. In 2012, we do have a chance to make this right. Not one more citizen’s murder should have to go unpunished because they are “too American”…If you aren’t American enough to go by our laws, go home. IF you didn’t want to be subject to AMERICAN LAW, you shouldn’t have become a citizen in the first place–again, go back.

If I were given the choice to be forced to live in communist China or live under this type of regime, which do you think I would pick? It wouldn’t be in a culture that wants to force me to marry someone I could not stand to be with or enslave me under a system of misogyny, that is for sure. In fact, I would rather be dead. It is possible that this will happen IN A WORST CASE SCENARIO. I shudder to think of what type of rule my grandchildren and nieces might be under in less than 20 years at this rate.

The people who are trying to accomplish this feat come from places that also sell their women to the highest bidder. Even if that bidder is a sex trafficker, they will sell their women in to fake marriages at young ages in order to force them into slavery. This is especially true in Iraq. Then if the women get away, they kill or imprison them for bringing shame to their families. If you don’t believe that, check it out.  There are links.  Why is government giving any aid to countries with such practices? I am of the opinion that by doing so, this government is complicit in the business of oppressing women worldwide. If it were up to me, all aid would be stopped where forced marriages and/or the selling of children and/or the practice FGM are allowed. I would then take that money that would have gone to those nations and put it toward paying off the deficit.

For the lack of action I see from the National Organization for Women, I would have NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM simply because I see nothing in the way of pursuing the rights of women as of late. Women must unite among themselves. Nobody is going to listen unless women become one united force–and believe me there are women of all faiths in this country that if they united under the cause of keeping women free in this country, the government would have no choice but to listen.

However, if Sharia law were instituted, you can rest assured that the subversive cultures within this country would try to revoke the right to vote for women–and that is when the real problems will begin. They will blame the female rape victims in court again for being raped, molested, etc…, rather than face the fact that each person must be held accountable for their own actions.

When we have video on Youtube of women fighting each other on a bus in front of their own children, it is used by the people of other countries to show how “out of control” we are as a nation because of our “freedoms”. They don’t address the fact that the women on the video are breaking the law because that would imply that if caught they would be properly punished. They are not mentioning that fact because that feeds into their propaganda machine about how western civilization and capitalism are evil.

The fact of the matter is, the way this country is allowed to conduct itself–glorifying socially unacceptable behavior, is why this country has become a laughing-stock. Discipline at all levels of society must be restored–starting with the home, then the school, then the counties, states and then our country as a whole. By not educating our children properly, we are feeding a beast that has run dangerously out of control. When will the people of America reunite and take back the schools and their cities from people who will sell the soul and it’s own females for the sake of conforming to a One World Order–which Islam right now is probably going to be running? Stop trade with nations who allow women’s rights to be trampled in such a manner–which would shut out the Middle East for the most part, and let them fend for their own. They do not deserve the aid of free nations. Oh my gosh! We would have to depend on our own oil and/or open up trade with South America–which would be a good thing.

Not all people of the Muslim faith allow for such practices on their women. These people should unite behind us and not allow these barbaric, inhumane creatures that dare to call themselves men exert control over anyone else. The mullahs and imams know that an uneducated population is a controllable one. Why do you think some of these men sell girls as young as two off? They know if women were educated, and if they were free, they would most likely NOT marry anyone chosen for them. They also know that the women outnumber them by far. I will let the reader think about that one. Here is the link referring to the cases in New York and in Arizona as well:

  http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/jan/28/no-safety-in-shariah/

I am of the opinion that the judge that made such an idiotic ruling betrayed every woman in this country and should be taken off of the bench. The Constitution never gave ANYONE in this country the right to “not be offended”…Where has common sense gone in this country that judges can get away with such incompetent actions on the bench? Any judge who tries to do this is sending American women down the river! If it were up to me, she would face charges of sedition AND treason.  Sedition for encouraging the radical Islamists with her ruling, and TREASON for betraying American women everywhere–including the victims of these crimes! It is time to stand up and make it known! If you are with me on this issue, email me! If not, don’t come crying to me when the stuff hit’s the fan! Women must do something NOW to get this information out!

Regardless of what one’s faith is, or the choice to be of no faith, it doesn’t matter.  Neither does your sexual preference. This threatens us all and we must never let ourselves be divided on an issue as vital as this. Our lives and the lives of our children and grandchildren depend upon that. Can we not unite for once to win this ONE cause?  Division has been a big problem when it comes to our own rights.  We can no longer afford to be divided.

The late president Abraham Lincoln knew the dangers a divided America would be. Our leaders need to be brought into the light of this fact again.  We cannot have two Americas–one system of law for one group and another for another group.  Ignorance of our law is no excuse to commit a crime.  Now we face a fight to wipe out another type of slavery–one that thrives on ignorance and fear.  It also thrives on the subjugation of all others to its own benefit.  If you do not understand what I am talking about, I suggest you take a good hard look at what is going on in Europe–especially since the UK has already tried being “sensitive” to this.  I am of the opinion that a worldwide cauldron is brewing and we must NOT allow ourselves to be thrown into it.

This is a time for our nation to remain CALM, people!

As with any mass rioting in the world, there is always the potential to start finger-pointing, making angry outbursts at others, and for LACK of a better way to put it, lowering ourselves to a level that none of our ancestors would be proud of.  The danger lies in this world in much the same fashion that it does in any prison system.

Are you wondering what I mean?  I’ll share it with you.  A gang starts fighting in the chow hall.  It gets contained after being hit with CS gas and such…Just as that mess gets cleaned up, another building kicks off when the news gets there from one of the other offenders who happens to be watching things unfold from the exit door.  THEN the team has to go clean up another mess–and it continues.  It spreads from building to building.   Before long, the news is statewide.  THEN other units start kicking off, putting countless non-participating offenders and a whole lot of officers in mortal danger because each gang is struggling to gain control.

Do you not think for one minute that given the messes in Egypt and Tunisia right now that there is an extremist group in the wings waiting to “step in” to “solve the problem”?  If not, you had better think again.  If they gain the upper hand, what makes you think the rest of them in other countries won’t try to kick off at some point?

There is only one response that can be done.  Contain the chaos.  Then deport non-citizen participants and jail the others who cause the violence and throw the key away.  Changing regimes is one thing.  Trying to establish a stranglehold to prevent a natural progression into a new government is another.  We saw that happened in Iran in the 70’s. 

I said after the Nicole Simpson/Ron Goldman murders that the catch phrase for children hundreds of years later would be “O.J. did it!”  Damn…I was wrong…It is going to be “Assange did it!”  He will be vilified if WW3 breaks out and somehow, it will all get pointed back to him, true or not.  Personally, he should be tried by various countries for sedition and/or treason.

The public has a “right to know” some information–unless it might cause the lives of our service members to be put at risk, or our freedoms that we do have to be put into jeopardy.  I don’t see that (for example) knowing that the troops cornered Osama Bin Laden in a bunker outside of a mountain range in Northern Afghanistan, and that they are about to commence bombings of that bunker, is going to matter to me one way or the other until after the fact.  There should be a media blackout until it is done. I am sick of journalists acting like little demigods telling where the troops are and telling THEIR version of the truth to promote their own personal agendas.  Enough is enough!  Either report responsibly and quit trying to convert America to your “my view is right and you need to agree” attitude, or get into the business of being televangelists, because that is what such reporters are well suited for–and are looked at in the same light by many in the nation.

As for the people, we need to stay calm and take these journalists with a grain of salt.  There is still some good reporting out there, but not much.  Much of it is what I call “propagandizing” of the news.  BOTH the far right and far left do this.  I am not concerned with what is going on in Egypt per se, unless extremist groups try to take it over, which I don’t think will happen.  Egypt’s army is known for quashing all rebellion just like the Turks do.  Neither army will put up with extremism.   The Coptic Christians in Egypt always remain neutral, so if these extremist thugs try to convert them, they will be in for a rude shock.  They will defend themselves or die trying.  They will not convert.

When enough of the extremists upset the world balance in the way of trade, one of two things will happen.  Russia will step in and shut them up, and the Turks will assist, OR China will do it for them and save them the trouble.  Do not think for one minute that any of those nations will stand by and let these gangs of extremists gain a foothold when their own countries could come under threat.  Germany is already contemplating deportations because of what is going on in their own country, and I am sure other countries in Europe may follow suit. Why?  It is simple, the populous is getting sick of being told that they have to be “sensitive” to other peoples’ cultures on their own blood bought, freedom-loving soil.  The forefathers in our countries did not fight and die so that we would have to accommodate every foreign national that chooses to emigrate to this country.  IF they want to be a part of the culture they are now living in, and be accepted, they shouldn’t be trying to change the new country into another version of the country they left behind.

I don’t care what country anyone who lives here comes from–they came to America.  If they cannot embrace  our culture, they should leave.  It’s that simple.

While the U.S. needs to keep an eye on this stuff, it is best to NOT get obsessed with it.  What extremists do not realize is that we DO remain calm until WE get messed with directly.  Regarding Obama’s speech in June 2009, I have only this to say…This nation has no business telling others how to conduct THEIR affairs until we straighten out our own problems within our own borders. 

For one, we need to stop extremism here.  It should NOT be permitted.  Any foreign national who is trying to practice law here, and attempting to insert Sharia Law into our penal codes (state or federal) through court cases should be deported immediately.  Any foreign national teaching that this land is not American’s land but theirs (or their God’s)–same thing. Deport their asses!  They don’t belong in America.  Anyone who is found guilty of  murder in process of honor killing should have mitigating circumstances added because of the fact that they KILLED  FEMALES due to their own hatred for them as well as their basic human rights.  Misogyny is a form of hate and if they want to push that Sharia Law crap, then try them for hate crimes against women–period. END OF DISCUSSION.  Not all Muslims espouse Sharia Law.  Many left their countries to get away from extremism.  They are in as much danger as an infidel, and it is important to keep that in mind before joining in the “bash all Muslims” bandwagon.  If America is going to allow one religion to dominate the textbooks, they should ALL be given equal time.  IF not, then none should be mentioned.

I cannot speak for all women, and neither can NOW since they don’t do much for women’s rights on these issues anyway, but I can say this. I will not give up my autonomy or my right to vote–let alone my right to keep my body in tact and marry who I damned well please.  My ancestors fought too long and hard for me to have those rights.  The Suffragettes will not have died and fought for us in vain so long as we as women hold onto those rights and FIGHT to defend them. 

Our leaders must not think much of women either to even let anyone entertain the thought of allowing this into any American document.  To allow it is treason and violates the Constitution.  While we need to remain calm as a nation, it is time for the women of America to wake up.  We must make our voices heard, or face extinction if stuff does hit the proverbial fan in this country.  We must be willing to stand up not just for our rights but for those of our daughters and granddaughters, nieces, etc…

The time to stand up is NOT when we see fighting in our streets and chaos everywhere else.  The time to put a stop to this crap is NOW.  We must stand toe to toe and shoulder to shoulder, regardless of what party we are in.  We must stand straight with gay, black with white, Asian with Latino, etc…ALL MUST UNITE and say NO to this crap!   If this is how some people want to live, let THEM relocate.  The rest of this nation shouldn’t be expected to accommodate those who hate our culture and our way of life.  I will vote for nobody–Republican or Democrat who thinks this is alright or doesn’t address this either.  To me, it is the women of this country who are in the greatest danger should a worst case scenario occur. 

Stop giving money to nations who carry out such misogynistic behavior toward women.  If they don’t let their women marry whom they choose–cut their funding.  If they sell young children into any kind of slavery and legally allow it, CUT THEIR FUNDING. If they practice FGM–CUT THEIR FUNDING, if they don’t espouse educating boys and girls equally, same deal.  WE should not continue to feed a beast that will only turn around and bite us afterward.  Not only that, the money that is saved would be better suited going to cover our deficit and not earmarked for unnecessary crap.

It is also time to remove presidential  privilege of issuing executive orders and put it back in the hands of congress where it belongs.  The Wilsonian pattern must be abolished and the original powers of government restored to protect the governed from the unjust powers their rulers now seek.  Executive order privilege gives the president way too much power over the lives of our citizens–and essentially makes him a “new monarch”.  Remember the ‘czars”?  I suggest that people do not  forget THAT point.  It is definitely NOT what our founding fathers intended to happen and it sets  a dangerous precedent for those who value freedom.

While for now we must remain calm, one can rest assured that women in this country are silently seething at the thought of someone else telling them how they should “live their life” regardless of the reason for it.  It is up to nobody to dictate to women who to marry, how to pray, how many children to have (if any) and the list goes on.  One can also rest assured that if our freedom in this country is threatened, we will stand against anyone trying to destroy our autonomy.  Our Suffragette ancestors fought too long and too hard to prevent the subjugation of women in society.  Their memory must never, ever be forgotten.
