More #Politics and the #WASP lady … more venting


I am not a democrat

I am NOT a republican

I guess some would think of me as being a member of the liberal party

Though really none of the parties out there do a good enough job of describing who I am and how I see the world or where I want the future to go as I move forward in life

I do not have a party but I do tend to vote democratic

I just had a very long discussion with a woman I randomly met at the park

I had been planning on coming here to sit at one of the pic-nic tables, type up a frenzy on breast cancer awareness month and the diet changes I have been making while being in Maryland as I visit my mother

Boy did I get side tracked…

The woman was very easy to talk with, considering she was a stranger and over all I enjoyed the short walk we took around a portion of the lake as she walked her dog… though I don’t believe she picked up after him

I did not like or agree with 90% of what she had to say or the forceful way she had to make sure she over powered the conversation but it was interesting to hear her point of view

She is an older woman, in her late 50s from the upper East Coast of the United States and very conservative but I am sure she thinks she is actually quite open minded.

She gave off the attitude of someone that really hasn’t ever suffered to get what she wants in life, a sort of entitled or elitist attitude that enjoys finding people she figures are like minded and try selling her rhetoric … a sort of preaching to the choir

I am not a member of any choir

Though I did not ask, it was very easy to see from her comments and attitude about President Obama… she is a republican …. The type I deem “of the worst sort”

I really do try not to judge… but some people make it so easy… if walks like a duck, talks like a duck, looks like a duck and is wearing a name tag saying “why yes! My name is Duck” you kind of get the idea…it’s a republican… “of the worst sort”   …I mean… its a duck

I have never shied away from the chance to hear how others think and feel but I do make a huge effort to see both sides of any subject and not limit myself to the “think inside the box” mentality

I try hard not to judge and it is a struggle but I try not to be racist, not to be sexist, not to be class orientated… I try damn hard not to judge anyone for anything… I really do

I have my own opinions and I would love it if more people shared them but I will not, for the most part, be offended if others are not as open minded as I am, as I CHOOSE to be

I grew up poor, I grew up in a broken family, I grew up being hated and feared for my different looks and my odd name

I have never been “white” as some people would like to label me

I have never been part of that culture

I was raised to think for myself instead of following the crowd and to see through the lies that others try to force feed me and I have chosen to never limit myself to any one group of people simply because others think I should

I like my Black friends, my African friends (there is a big difference), I like my Hispanic friends, I like my European friends, I like my Asian friends, does Iceland get its own category or can I add them to Europe as well? Does Australia or New Zealand get lumped into the Asian category… I like my Middle Eastern friends…

I literally have friends in damn near every country of this world, not just people I talk to or those that are white and have moved somewhere else…

I ALSO have a lot …and I mean A LOT… of gay, lesbian, bisexual, asexual, polyamouri, hermaphrodite, gender confused, transgender (post and pre op, male to female and female to male), those that crossdress, those who are fridged, those who are sluts (male and female), strippers (male and female), professional pole dancers (the kind that climb up and do those really amazing acts of strength, again male and female)…

I have friends with all kinds of mental disorders, personality disorders, multiple personalities and I have friends that are physically handicapped in one form or another and for one reason or another

I choose to find people who are like me, open minded, loving, friendly, kind, caring, and intelligent… and yes, I know that being smart is not always from going to good schools, let alone going to ANY school

I like people

I like learning different cultures

I like hearing the different languages and trying to puzzle them out

Over the years and I am only JUST turning 33 years old, but over the years I have learned enough French to do well for myself in France

I have tried learning Spanish and Italian … yes I have forgotten most of what I learned because I had to focus more on the French language but I still can understand more than what I can speak due to all three languages being Latin based

I have tried teaching myself, as a teen, Mandarin Chinese… now I do admit that I was able to learn fast and well but only while I had the tapes from the library

My best friend was the daughter of an Ambassador to the Malaysian Embassy in Washington DC and she tried teaching me her language, once again I was able to say the words well because it is like music to me and I loved it… until she left with her family to go back to Malaysia… I miss her terribly

Her mother taught me what fish can taste like

She made this WONDERFUL but simple stew of fish and rice and flavors that where so intense and the spice… oooh it was lovely

I thank her, in my head, every time I go out to dinner and have the chance to enjoy other foods from around the world, because of the fact that she shared her countries cooking with me and fed my hunger for exploring the world without having to leave home

I go to world markets or Korean markets and I will often be the only “white” woman there, sometimes I get the strangest looks from the other customers or staff as I wander up and down every isle, slowly seeing what catches my eye

I may not be able to read the language on the packaging but I know what I like and I can guess pretty well what it is I am looking at it

When I go out to eat I am good at analyzing the tastes that blend together and at those styles of markets I can tell just what I want and need to try cooking at home

I have walked into Arabic shops in London and bought only a bottle of camel’s milk, the shop keeper looks at me as if I have grown two heads but I tell him that I heard camel milk is best used for diabetics and wanted to know the taste

I have tried pig’s ear and real ox tail soup and eaten snails and cow tongue and horse and brains (ok that was nasty) and frog’s legs

I admit if I went to a country that eats other insects I would try those too, why limit yourself, learn and explore and grow. If you don’t like it… don’t do it again, easy to say but few really push those limits

But let me get back to languages

In my “youth” I started picking up on Japanese from watching enough manga and films from Japan. My 15 year old son has been trying for the last few years, on and off, to teach himself how to read, write and speak Japanese because he wants a career in manga and is prepping himself to one day move there

I used to read a lot of thick books when I was well under the age of 15 and some of those focused on the Norse mythology, from that I picked up a lot on the Icelandic words and while I was recently on a stop over from France to the states I was able to listen to the people around me speaking Icelandic… realizing I didn’t know the words but they sounded familiar and I could kind of pick up on what the jist of the conversation was about

I have listened and learned bits of Russian and other Slavic languages because I was able to listen in while my friends/coworkers where talking, one would be speaking in Czechoslovakian and the other answering in Romanian 

I do not let language stop me from talking to people!

If I have a hard time with a person who is deaf, I know how to grab a sheet of paper and chat that way. I do admit being a teen and trying to date a sweet young man who was deaf, during a time when there were no cell phones to text with and my having no internet… was a bit challenging

I mean you try being a teen and passionate over the phone while someone else is in the middle translating for the both of you *blush* not so easy but a good memory

I will not limit myself

I will not live a lie

I will not support government that wants to control who I am so that they can have a fatter pay check

I will not support the closed minded people of my parents and grandparents generation

I will be DAMNED if I encourage my children to dumb down the way society is trying to go in America. Reality TV eats at their brains, kills any potential they have for becoming better people until much older and has no value or substance to offer anyone

But just like junk food… you all seem to lap it up and think it’s just dandy. Then you wonder why your ass is fat, your health is bad, you have all kinds of mental disorders, no stamina and are brainless when it comes to thinking your way out of a paper bag

I learned nothing in school but what was going on in American history… and a tad about the Egyptians… I learned nothing of the things I went off on my own to learn such as  astronomy, how the brain functions, phycology, mythology (above and beyond the basic Greek and Roman selections) true ghost stories, astrology, gardening, birds, bugs, nature, photography, art, sex, music… how to fucking balance my check book! How to build a “better mouse trap”… as in how to think for myself and be a better person

Yes some of those things are taught but in such a boring and meaningless way… ok dates and names mean something but what… where is the substance

Why do we have black history month, it only keeps us segregate instead of teaching us about those people in history that made a difference

Where is the Native American history? Have you ever read the proverbs of the different tribes? Have you ever learned the wisdom they have to share?

Why didn’t I learn sign language in elementary school, why didn’t language classes start in the early grades when the brain soaks up that kind of information like a sponge?

WHERE IS MY RECESS!

WHERE IS MY PLAY TIME

WHY THE FUCK DO I HAVE TO STOP PLAYING DRESS UP!       

How the fuck did pizza become a vegetable

Why did corporations get into schools, kids shouldn’t be drinking caffeine or sugar drinks or getting snacks in school. Their lunch should be good enough, in quality and quantity to keep them going for the day and not need the crap pick me up and the marketing

Why is it that everything I look at on the food shelves around the stores are loaded with sugar, real or otherwise and so many added ingredience that are not needed or are toxit to the body? Tell me why is it that the produce section is tiny, limited and so expensive? Tell me why it is CHEAPER to eat food of lower quality that will cause more health problems instead of being able to afford eating proper fruits and veggies to stay healthy

I don’t understand how you people can choose to let the corporations control so much of our lives and the quality with which we live in or giving power to people…like the republicans… who want to limit us from real growth

How can schools not teach real information?

Why is it in this day and age we STILLLLL worry about the color of someone’s skin or the person they are fucking or the sexual orientation

The woman I talked to this afternoon had opinions, as is her right but I do not enjoy having others FORCE those opinions down my throat and then criticize me for how I live my life because I am not as closed mind as they are

I am sorry but I won’t be “white” the way she seemed to think I should be

We are human

Yes …I will humanitize the world and the people in it

I will not say… you are poor so I should shrug you off and limit you more

I will not say… you are black and therefor stupid and inferior to me

I will not say… you are never going to be as great as I am or my race is

I want everyone to have the chance to be smarter, learn more, cross train in many things and help support others to do the same

There is no reason for people to be treated badly for the color of their skin, their hair, their disabilities, their differences

We are all different in some way or another

But we are all just as good as the next guy and should be given the chance to prove it

Empower, build up, grow, become better… teach others to do the same

 

 

Pissed at 2nd debate


I have never been more pissed off that the people around me

Those in places of power and those that need to be protected, need a helping hand, need the their way of life to be better, need health care, need to not be ignored and they are undecided

How can you be blind to the fact that yes, Obama may not be who you want in the White House but at least he is TRYING NOT to screw us over

Every time the republicans (over my entire 32years of life) have been in power, they have done the “ME FIRST” attitude, lining pockets and caring only for the rich or the poor when it suited their needs but that again lines their pocket

I would love to have a republican party that actually gives a damn, fights to make real changes and tries to work with the democratic party… instead they bicker, start fights or point fingers at anyone but them

I have some WONDERFUL friends and family that are republicans, they are wonderful because they are human and remember that fact but the ones in power, the ones that have the say to make changes seem to have a god complex!

Work together

Fix things

I walk through the stores and I am embarrassed to see what is being sold, what people are buying and what is being shoved down our throat as top quality.

When such crap is being forced upon us for purchase to make the economy better… no wonder people are not buying much and we are suffering from it

It’s not JUST that people don’t have much money to spend; they don’t want the crap that is there!

With how we care for our people… how can you ignore the poor, the people that choose to be here over their home country, the ignorant ones that still think race is an issue… when are you going to make us happier and healthier and better people as AMERICANS!

UNITE US!

Here is my take on the second debate tonight:

#debate Play by Play of the action


Pissed off at the 2nd debate:

 

Me to Romney

Yes it’s nice and all to thank everyone for being there but dammit man you are not being personable, you are wasting my time and theirs, you are also not giving substance and only giving run around speech

Me to Obama

Thank you for listening to my tweets! You are clear, easy to understand and THANK YOU for talking about alternative energy!

Me to Romney

Stop talking numbers, it means nothing if you have to work multiple jobs just to survive and 3 million jobs a year is nothing if you work for less money to live on. Stop wasting time harassing Obama and make a difference by speaking clearly

Me to Obama

Thank you for speaking up and calling Romney out on his bullshit and upper class elitism

Me to Romney butting in

Can you make yourself any more of an ass by not playing by the rules and walking forwards in a threatening manner to the commentator

Me to Obama

Good! Look to the future and alternative fuels, get us off of oil! Yes still use it but don’t make it a priority and KEEP MY WORLD LOOKING PRETTY! Damn right I WANT MY CLEAN ENVIRONMENT

Me to Romney

You sound like a spoiled child that didn’t get his Christmas gift he has been begging for and pissed his brother did. Body language, attitude, voice all says you are a greedy uncaring man. That you care MORE about coal and oil instead of finding the BALANCE with nature and resources really pisses me off and deprives my children of a beautiful future. How can you be energy independent when you talk about nothing you will do to help the people AND the environment

Me to Obama

Thus far I have nothing to say, you are right on point

YES keep it clean! Keep the imports low; keep us creating better cars and things to keep us competitive

(Two speaking at once)

Me to Romney

You are such an aggressive cock

Me to Obama

Thank you for not falling for his pissing contest and seeing who has the bigger dick, all he is doing is egging you on and being negative

Me to Romney

Stop with the numbers, quoting just shows you can rattle off things you think are important but are not

Me to Obama

Thank you for making a point of WHERE we were when gas prices were lower, it’s all has to stay in context and Romney won’t stay in context

Me to Romney

Shut up shut up shut up stop interrupting the woman, shoe some respect you fool, you had the chance to say things right the first time, now it is too late and just makes you look like an idiot

Me to Obama

Thank you for the humor

Me to Romney

Stop adding fluff; just say what the fuck you are actually going TO DO! Dance dance dance, can you actually say anything of subject?

Continue to…pay? Since when have THEY been paying?

Pick a number? This is Romney roulette?

If you limit the upper class to what they ALREADY (SHOULD be) paying now, that will only leave those below to suffer as they ALREADY are and worse

( @_bhickamn “oh eat him alive Obama”)

Me to Obama

Good give me my relief! Take care of the people ACTUALLY DOING THE WORK in this country, take care of the small REAL PEOPLE businesses instead of corporations! FUCK YES tax the shit out of the rich AS WELL AS force them to donate to charities on medical issues and feeding the hungry and educating EVERYONE in this country, not just the whites (not that I got proper school and I count as white)

Me to Romney

You are not a white knight, you speak nothing of the poor, you are not Clinton you cannot grow everyone out of it. The top 5% are just padding their fat cat asses. THIS IS MORE THAN FOUR YEARS LONG!

Me to Obama

Hhahaha love the look on your face, love that smile as Romney is talking, you can’t believe his bullshit either can you lol

Thank you for TALKING TO the people instead of talking AT the people

Me to Romney

Sit your ass down, show some respect to your opponent and wipe that snide “if looks could kill” posture, have they not trained you to use body language; you make a very bad puppet for the Republican Party

Let the woman FINISH speaking before you start, hello, how many times I have to point out your disrespect

Oh really? How about the 35x the profit for you and your pals, your state has suffered under your care and the president is working on cleaning your mess

And maybe you have balanced budgets but to what expense, you kill the small businesses and strangle the customers

Me to Obama

Sorry you had a harder life than Romney but thank you for being SOMEONE LIKE ME! Oh dear lord THANK YOU for saying glass ceiling! Good! Take care of the woman because we are your shield mates and we will fight at your side and see you win or fall depending on how you treat us

YES wipe out discrimination! For woman, men, all colors, WE ARE AMERICANS

Me to Romney

Yes yes thank you for ONCE AGAIN speaking your resume… should I pat you on the head and feed you a cookie too?

You speak of woman as if we had two heads and came from another planet… thank you for making me feel alienate EVER MORE

Oo look at the woman in the audience judging you!! Holy shit! Get your body language people in on that!

Me to Obama

YES give me health care! I and other woman give up our health needs to take care of others! Often PLANED PARENT HOOD HELPS US STAY ALIVE! These are survival issues!

Me to Romney

(Susan Kats good question!)

Hahahahhhahaha answer that, I dare you

Oh you dick, that question on health care is behind you, STICK TO WHAT SUSAN KATS ASKED YOU

She didn’t ask you … jebus! All you are doing is saying what you want your resume to look like, you are not proving you are any different than Bush, you might as well just say “read my lips” like his father did

Your REPUBLICAN tag line is “I know how to make that happen”

Me to Obama

Again, thank you for educating people instead of talking down to them and trying to stick to the subject

Looking at the crowd, from where the camera goes, some are not happy you make sense; body language is saying they agree and some are trying hard not to show bias

Hahahah thank you for making Romney look like the donkey show that he is during the Romney vs. Bush question

Me to Obama

(Michael Jones good question)

Seriously 4 yrs and most of it was wasted, why? Because most of your presidency you have been forced to campaign for a second term… shorten that race and you could get a hell of a lot more done. I like what you have done but yes I want more

Sensible way… you are looking for the balance… good

Hahah thank you for showing Romney as the puppet of the republican just like the last 4  (Republican) Presidents

Me to Romney

You and your ilk made the last 4 years so bad, every time the republicans have been IN POWER your kind have done nothing but make a bigger mess that force the democrats to clean up your mess before being able to work on the real issues we need fixed

The middle class are being crushed by the past 20 years of republican obstruction, all your Republican policies have hurt us… please Reagan was a great guy and actor and lover but just as much of a puppet to the republican masters

You who say down with big bird … it’s because you don’t want any other Muppets in power

DON’T REWARD REPUBLICAN OBSTRUCTION!

WAKE UP!

IT’S BEEN LIKE THIS FOR THE PAST 20 YEARS

Me to Romney again

(Missed her name but good question on immigrants)

Oh you fuck, first talk about the law ok

Right (sarcasm), get in the people with schooling! Good call since so many that crossover do not have proper schooling and are looking for a better life

Me to Obama

I am 3rd generation American

YES on point

Me to Romney

Oh right go back… yay… fun

Stop sucking up all the air in the room

HZAHA good one Obama!

Me to Obama

America is a melting pot, give us a place to safely mix and make something worth selling to others!

(Kerry Ladka hot damn)

Good! This is not a political issue! Romney fucked up on that one!

You are the higher up but it’s not you that pointed the guards on the wall to protect that base, but it is you to take the blame and it is you to make sure things change! The military needs an overhaul, better people in the right positions, better training, better funding AND PROPER USE OF THE FUNDING!

Me to Romney

Stop quoting the news

The reason things wait to make the news is because things have to be learned before they can be aired

Me to Obama

Thank you for giving people the chance to hear your words, Romney talks too fast and sounds too slick

Thank you for saying he was being offensive

Me to Romney

Ooo what an ass for not having the details… ONCE AGAIN

Me to Obama during Romney answer

Good for standing up for yourself!

(Nina Gonzalez yes!)

Yes, I want the OPTION to have my guns but I want training and people using them CORRECTLY!

Opps about a month ago and then two months later… only messed up time line I have spotted.. How long into the debate are we?

Good keep the weapons out of the hands of people…guns for hunting are for hunting, weapons are used on victims. End the victimization

Yes catch the violent impulses before they happen!

Me to Romney

How many mixed races are in your schools? How many of your great schools help the poor?

Oh hell no you did not just say that people should only have kids in wedlock, getting married JUST cause you have a kid together is MORE LIKELY to lead to divorce! And fuck things up more

You fail at trying to slow down your speech to engage the people

You fail at STICKING TO THE TOPIC

Aww don’t you look like a lil kid in a candy shop cause you got the pro and the anti-gun people together

We haven’t had the we haven’t had the we haven’t had the…. Who are you prokey pig? Stop acting like you have a handicap, stuttering is a real problem for some and you are just being disrespectful

Me to Obama

Yes! Make people smarter, healthier, better and they WONT GO SHOOT PEOPLE UP IN FRUSTRATION!

(Carol Goldberg)

Me to Romney

We lost jobs to china cause of you fuckers pocketing money on it in one hand and bitching about it with the other

Tell the Republican Party to get off the stick and stop obstructing the growth we need

WE NEED REGULATIONS CAUSE YOU FUCKERS KEEP FINDING LOOP HOLES TO SCREW US OVER

Me to Obama

Yes

Me to Romney

The playing field will never be level

Me to Obama

Tax the fuck out of products made in china to the companies trying to save money in china, make it cheaper to make things here without touching the value of our dollar, help china raise its money

Me to Romney

(Barry Green… what did you ask?)

YOU ARE VERY DIFFERENT THAN YOU SEEM TO BE: read that as you are a good guy that is a really bad puppet to the republicans

It is EASY to get things on track in a small state

All you talk about is “me and mine”, what had you done for the poor

How

How

How

At what expense!!!

Me to Obama

Yes

Play by the rules! Yes it is at stake!

Yes! Fight for us!
