Fatigue chronicle #1

It’s piling up on us now, it has been for a while. Assaults on every rule an custom promoting empathy and decency for recent immigrants.

That’s what this man is, earned with his wife’s patriotic sacrifice. Earned with a decade off decent behavior. Gold star family member deported after Trump Administration aggressive new policy, treats what was an infraction, a cite, but now is deportable. At risk of separating him from the same child whose mother lost her life in Afghanistan in service to this county. So a decade later he’s deportable? Maybe he was scared to go to court in the days of Trump, wonder why.

That about sizes up the pro deportation crowds argument, right? 😏 Not a good PR move for the pro round em crowd, not a good look at all. 😂

(I laugh because I’m just telling jokes at this point, ironic observational humor. The people saying pro deport his ass thing KNOW the facts, y’all anti minor infractions equal deportation crowd, right?)

Anybody for this at this point is just identifying their MAGA tribe, signifying and signaling allegiance, their blinded, wounded pride. So clearly, there is no low not already imagined and hoped for by this crowd, none at all.

Say the wall could work, it can’t, but for the sake of argument.

What is step two?

Deportation of current illegal aliens, as they say. Problem is, when you’re haunting court dockets and such, you get low hanging fruit that wasn’t even a problem, like this man. 11 million, how could there not be massive detention camps in phase 2, at some point? If this is the bar being set, expect two things, the resistance will grow greatly as this escalates.

It is actually not funny of course, not funny in the least bit. This assault on our standards of decency, this reveal of the original sin of manifest destiny… but only for some.

This disregard for humans civility and compassion in this case is just setting the stage. Every old cliche to make the other be a threat whispered, if not shouted. Gang members, welfare leaches, diseased, rapists, vermin… These are familiar and documented traditional war propaganda techniques. We already have had historic enforcement in this area, but didn’t favor Esteban Miller level aggressive enforcement, it didn’t fit his white nationalist, whole homie routine.

You have to listen what they say, they say there way of life is threatened, and Trump is the best tool for the job.

Combined with the religious right, the insidious soft racism based on fear, combined with the more blunt racism of hate and tradition, add a liberal dollop of willing to swallow the first two 2 reach goals, oh don’t forget the let it all burn Susan set!

So I really have been worn down by outrage, I can’t stay there. It has worn on my folk all my life and this resurgence is all too familiar. Some wag usually answers the racism claim at some time with, “what about unemployment”, Imagining themselves clever. To even think that is a appropriate answer, arguing with that with facts. Back to laughing, because there’s no point in believing they won’t defend what they accomplish such as this.

Not even trying to lie about it.

“Missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s killer spent 15 minutes slicing up his body while his accomplices wrapped up the dismembered pieces, it has been claimed. 

The 60-year-old critic of the Saudi leadership was last seen entering the country’s consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, on October 2. 2018

Turkish officials say that they have recorded evidence which proves that he was assassinated by a 15-strong hit squad who flew in on a private jet.

Dr Salah al-Tubaigy, an autopsy expert who studied in Glasgow in 2004, is reportedly one of the suspects in the hit squad accused of torturing and killing Mr Khashoggi, according to the New York Times . 

A source has claimed that Mr Khashoggi was cut up alive in a seven minute killing by the autopsy expert, who has gained the nickname ‘Dr Death’.

The journalist’s body parts were wrapped up by the team, while music played in the background.”

I left outrage back about a year-and-a-half ago, now it’s just basically, “man, what the f*** will he do next?”

Big shout out to Melania. Poor lady, she just signed up to be a gold digger trophy wife, she had an anchor kid, she got her parents over here, she was living on da Ritz, houses everywhere she wanted to be. Her husband was a fool sure, but she had hers and it wasn’t that bad for a former second-rate New York model and appearance girl.

Now her marriage is getting run all over the coals in the most public way possible. Watch, they gonna be talking about her and him in Africa too. In this interconnected world, there will be no escape. I picture in my mind, the Devil, as played by Ricardo Montebon overacting, laughing hysterically over her contract.

I don’t fault her for having a marriage of convenience coming Lord knows it’s not a wrong thing. No, I pity the hell out of her, This Night Gallery episode horrorshow just keep on metastasizing in the most embarrassing public way.

So on to this latest what the f*** moment brought to you by Donald Trump, titled:

—The truth is not the truth, and he really didn’t even commit a crime.—

It’s all so crazy watching Mueller slow-walk Trump through the paces. What’s even crazier, it’s already all been out on TV for us all to see. You can’t, “just joking” away saying, “Russia please if you’re watching, release Hillary’s emails!”

You can’t explain away the Tower meeting with Junior and Company with what we saw in almost real-time, including the email with Don saying, “you got dirt? oh yeah!”

And Paul Manafort, what what in the holy f*** happened there? From the day he was drafted to be campaign manager, I just couldn’t even see how that had happened. A political operative from most recently the Ukraine? Are you f****** kidding me? Either nobody vetted s***, or these vatos were ridin dirty as hell and didn’t care who knew it.

It seems obvious to me that Trump and Company never thought they were going to win and they didn’t do anything right. They didn’t get anybody who didn’t play fair, they didn’t keep good records, they stole, cheated and basically operated his business as usual.

And they’re going to continue to do it to tell somebody stops them, it’s the burnout sale, and they are are blowing up everything they can for-profit and revenge.

Right now, Trump people are actually defending Trump even though his boy got convicted on the same charge. That foolio was on TV today saying it wasn’t even illegal! I don’t know how it’s all going to play out, but this is must see reality TV since this fool got into office, may the Gods bless our souls.

CBD infused massage oil

“The hottest buzz in the spa world is the benefits of CBD infused products and massages. CBD is Non-Psychoactive and Anti-inflammatory. Massage creams and oils infused with CBD, are inherently therapeutic for the mind and the body. Massage therapist and patients alike can reap these soul soothing benefits of an infused massage.

What role does CBD play in the massage?

The anti-inflammatory and pain relieving agents of CBD reduces inflammation within muscles and joints, allowing the massage therapist to work more effectively. People seek massages as a way to relax and escape stress. For athletes, CBD also has the reputation for accelerating the recovery and healing process of injured connective tissue.

How CBD works?

The CBD receptors (known as CB2) are part of the endocannabinoid system, which is the physiological system that helps the homeostatic functions within the central nervous system. This includes maintenance of bodily functions, pain, inflammation, and the immune system.

CB2 receptors are found in nerve and immune cells in just about every organ. CBD binds to CB2 receptors as well as TRPV1 receptors. Damaged tissues sensitize TRPV1 to its chemical and physical stimuli. Adding massage further benefits the stimulation of TRPV1 activity and has a positive influence on the CB2 receptors, which helps alleviate inflammation and pain.” –

Jazz with that cool hard Edge.

The epitome of cool jazz when I was growing up was John Coltrane on the 8 track in my dad’s 98. I didn’t appreciate him till I got older, his whole thing just wasn’t working for my young pop self. But I got a earful in car rides, Charlie Mingus, Diana Washington, Nina Simone, Jazz Crusaders, he was all about it.

Deporting legal Haitians?

#keepingtrack

Deporting every person of color possible stays high on the Trump led enforcement divisions lists, ICE, DHS, and Border Patrol. While Trumps clowns on Twitter with LeVar Ball, they straight fuxing with millions of POC’s lives. Here’s another 60’000 people turn in the barrel.

“Haiti has been devastated by disease and an earthquake in 2010 that killed an estimated 230,000 people.
Haitian immigrants to the United States have been a benefit and boon.

That is the context.

That is the history.

Now the reality is that the Trump Administration is telling nearly 60,000 Haitians allowed to live and work in the United States since the earthquake to “GET OUT!”

These are not new arrivals. These are men, women,and children who have been living here for years.

Of course, the storyline that runs through this administration continues with this latest injustice. Would the Administration have acted if the Haitians who they say no longer belong were of a different ethnicity?

Haven’t heard about a big push to kick out all the illegal Irish, have we?

(It’s important to note the Administration also appealed their Muslim travel ban to the Supreme Court).

We are better than this. And I think most Americans know it.” – Dan Rather, edited.

No boycott for me, not exactly

I wouldn’t stop watching football because of Colin Kaepernick being shunned by the NFL this year. After all, it’s not like we just discovered the inherent racism and overall lack of care about the players that is in endemic in the league, is it? If we avoided all the large businesses in the US that had racist tendencies, one would would have a very limited range of choices. 
As bad as it feels to realize, “no Charlotte, racism isn’t fading out after all” It’s been my experience over my years that the pockets of equality are getting larger and larger, and the micro aggressions to macro aggression’s of racism are getting more and more infrequent, in regards to big business and small. Geographical location and of course luck are always to be considered in the equation still, but less.

No, my pro football days watching days were over in that Seattle vs San Francisco NFC West Championship. Furious smacks talk all year, well by the time they got to the game, they were all done talking. When the game started, they were leg whipping, late hard ass tackling, head hunting and all that. 

The referees let it happen too. 

Careers were ended, bones broken, ligaments bent in wrong directions, concussion protocol and the accident buggy were activated many times that afternoon.

But it was like the last game in the original Rollerball, no more rules, just pain. Nobody got suspended after, so I was done. 

Added to the Concussion knowledge and seeing middle age players hobble at 50, it’s too high a price. Man, I once knew a kid in Pop Warner who blew out his ACL in a game at 11. Dang 11 years old and that changed his life. Too many other kids get rocked, too, the sport is just too brutal from top to bottom. 

The Seattle game was just the final straw for me, really.

So watch the games if you want to, I say. Marshon Lynch and the Oakland Raiders are cooking up something special this year. I’m so done with football I’m not even watching them, but I like the story. I don’t think the true fans should deny and miss, instead I think contacting your teams management and ask them what concrete steps they’ll take to mitigate this issue might be nice.

I respect the Boycott though, if I actually watched the game I might have joined, but I won’t shame fans. You can vote with your dollar, you can vote with positive political pressure too or you can do as you damn please, that’s not for me to decide.

In fact, I might watch Oakland in the playoffs, with Lynch on board, I think it’s a wrap, and it’s more than talent, it’s that chemistry. Lynch belongs to Oakland and Oakland belongs to him. Dereck from the Valley too, that’s some powerful home cooking for the last years by the Bay.

If the League wants redemption, let me see some of community commercials working on better community police practices. They have enormous pull with all communities, including law enforcement. Instead of deflecting the truth do shamefully, I hope the NFL will look to shape the future.

Answers for classic tropes

  1. “No white man today has never owned a slave, and no black man today has ever been enslaved.”

No white citizen today has had laws based specifically on the color of his skin. Anybody black born before 1964 has. That was the *civil rights movement.”

 so…. there’s that.

2. If black power is okay, Mexican power, Indian power, lbgt power why the hell can’t we have white power?



In the simplest of terms, white power is about keeping the status quo and power as it as, whereas black power and some of the other powers mentioned are about acheiving equality
