The Richard Nixon school of ballet and the arts / Goodbye Etta.....

Etta James who has died aged 73 after suffering from leukaemia, was among the most critically acclaimed and influential female singers of the past 50 years, even if she never achieved huge popular success. From her first R&B hit, in 1955, the risqué Roll With Me Henry – cut when she was only 15 – through a series of classic 1960s soul sides (the lush ballad At Last, the raucous house rocker Tell Mama and the emotional agony of I'd Rather Go Blind), then a series of critically acclaimed 1970s and 1980s albums that won her a broad rock audience, to more recent albums of jazz vocals, James proved capable of developing and changing as an artist.

Such a loss to the world.

A Cleveland third grader who weighed more than 200 pounds was taken from his mother after officials reportedly said she did not do enough to help the boy, who suffered from a weight-related health issue, to lose weight.

“They are trying to make it seem like I am unfit, like I don’t love my child,” the boy’s mother, who was not identified, told the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “It’s a lifestyle change and they are trying to make it seem like I am not embracing that. It is very hard, but I am trying.”

Officials first became aware of the boy’s weight after his mother took him to the hospital last year while he was having breathing problems, the newspaper reported. The child was diagnosed with sleep apnea and began to be monitored by social workers while he was enrolled in a program called “Healthy Kids, Healthy Weight” at the Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital.

The boy lost a few pounds, but recently began to gain some back, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported. At that point, the Department of Children and Family Services asked a juvenile court for custody of the boy, citing his soaring weight as a form of medical neglect, according to the newspaper.


I have a hard time with this because I think there are children out there whose parents are abusing them in so many ways, however, I also see this as a type of abuse as well.  Having had the opposite problem with my boys (they were always underweight for their height/age according to the charts).  Yet I never once had a fear that anyone would take them from me as otherwise they were perfectly healthy.  Now, they are both almost 6' and still thin but it's not a health concern, they are both extremely active.

The Dr told me Joy was overweight on her last check up.  The Dr suggested a "food diary" which we kept religiously for a month.  Then Joy and I sat down and took a good look at it.  I stopped buying as much junk food snacks for their lunches and after school snacks and we started making an extra effort for all of us to eat healthier with our snacks and the lunches I pack for them, which was the only thing we could find unhealthy in the diary.  Joy has lost 10 pounds, feels a hundred times better and she and I are walking and excercising together.  In the end though, I blame the loss of physical education classes in middle school as much as I do my bad snack choices.

When the schools serve pizza, french fries and peaches in heavy syrup as a well balanced lunch, there is a problem.  However, as a parent, I feel it is ultimately my responsibility that I make sure my child's health, not limited to but including their weight, is healthy and where they should be for their height and age.

I personally would rather see them decriminalize drug and traffic stuff before this.

The dispute started last month, when Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor announced that a 10 percent budget cut to his office in 2012 meant he would no longer be prosecuting any of the city's misdemeanors, effective immediately. Topeka city council members say they can't afford the estimated $800,000 yearly cost of prosecuting those misdemeanors and jailing offenders--and that they want the county to continue carrying out misdemeanor prosecutions as it has for the past 25 years. The county continues to insist that the jurisdiction for these prosecutions should shift to city prosecutors, but the Topeka City Council says that none of the city's five attorneys has any recent experience prosecuting domestic violence cases.

Next week, the council will vote on a measure that will strip domestic battery from a list of crimes that are illegal in the city. The vote is a tactical bid to force the county to take those cases on again.

Or Kill Me / The Good Fight
« on: September 27, 2011, 09:06:43 pm »
Quote
In November 1843, the Gettysburg newspaper The Republican Compiler printed what it claimed to be a verbatim report of a speech made to Republican forces by the Reverend Joab Prout, on the eve of the Battle of Brandywine:

"Soldiers - tomorrow morning we will go forth to battle ... your unworthy minister will march with you, invoking God's aid in the fight ... need I exhort you to fight the good fight for your homesteads, and for your wives and children!"

This has been on my mind for a while now.  “The Good Fight” What is this. Is there one left?  People talk a good line about “change” hell, a man won an election on the slogan “Change you can believe in”.  Have there been changes?  Of course there have.  Have they been ones we can believe in?  NO. 

So you ask why, why is it so difficult for people to not see what needs to be done, especially when the answers are right in front of their faces?  I think the reason is because no one feels they are fighting for their very existence.  The scary part is they are and they don’t even realize it.  Since they have never had to fight for their homes or their families, they can't comprehend what "The Good Fight" actually is.

Miyamoto Musashi said “Everything can collapse. Houses, bodies, and enemies collapse when their rhythm becomes deranged. In large-scale strategy, when the enemy starts to collapse you must pursue him without letting the chance go. If you fail to take advantage of your enemies' collapse, they may recover.”

We are at a point of failure.  We have not taken advantage of our enemies collapse, simply because we are our own worst enemy.  Very little that is happening in the world today is something that could not have been stopped before it even started.  For every inch we have gained across the globe, we have lost 6.  The compromise has killed us.  Well not physically killed us, but it has killed something inside of us that recognizes right from wrong, a part of us that knew when our fight was “the Good Fight” and stopped our realization of it becoming the “Ok Whatever Works”.

The author Arthur Gordon said “Some people confuse acceptance with apathy, but there's all the difference in the world. Apathy fails to distinguish between what can and what cannot be helped; acceptance makes that distinction. Apathy paralyzes the will-to-action; acceptance frees it by relieving it of impossible burdens.”

We have become an apathetic people.  We are paralyzed by our own actions.  We have allowed so many things to “pass along” lost so many inches that now, when we are miles from where we need to be everyone is scrambling for a route to salvation.

It is no wonder a political party that touts Christianity has gained such popularity.  People know there are problems.  People see that things are actually BAD WRONG.  They are desperate for a quick fix solution, never realizing the problem they are trying to fix is years in the making. The problem is, god is not going to fix the problem and I don’t know that we have what it takes to do so ourselves.

So where do we turn?  Who do we look to for guidance, leadership, answers?  I would suggest history, as it is bound to repeat itself, however, we do not seem to be able to learn from our mistakes.  Where does that leave us?  Within in 5 years of a downtrodden country, scrambling for food, killing for fresh water, dying for freedoms we gave away long ago.

I don’t believe there is a chance for change.  Not because it isn't possible, but because to change our surroundings we must first change ourselves.

The Richard Nixon school of ballet and the arts / I See You Hiding.....
« on: September 13, 2011, 04:36:59 pm »
I see you hiding around corners, lurking behind trees and bushes.  I see you watching the children as they play their silly games in the park.  The children still young enough to think it’s a beautiful world and mommy and daddy can fix everything. 

I see your handiwork in the “Hannah Montana” and other celebrities (High School Musical, Gossip Girl) who direct their careers towards elementary school girls and those other young people looking for a hero.  You lure them in young and innocent with all of the glittery room accessories, the baubles and perfumes, the complete makeover kits.  The dolls and the dress up, teaching our daughters that “slutty” is the new black!  And making sure our sons look for girls wearing the new black!

I see you as you follow newly double digit aged kids, those 10-15 year olds who are finding that not only is it not a beautiful world, but mommy and daddy can’t even fix themselves, let alone everything.  I see the stain of your touch on those children, their clothes, their iPods and cell phones.  What messages are you whispering in their ears as they walk down the street to the beat of whatever music you have convinced them that they need to listen too.  I see your plan, you decide who and what is “cool” and then you get them young.  But I question who is truly working for you, the kids who everyone wants to be like, or the kids they torment into shooting the school to hell?

I see you as you struggle to maintain your control over the young twenty something kids who have started asking questions you really don’t want to answer for fear they will see you as the lie you are.  You start losing control as they start developing lives, ideas and ideals of their own.  Well you lose a few.  Less that you did 20 years ago, but hopefully more than you will 5 years from now. 

That is my hope, that the generation that is coming into its own now has the wherewithal to stand up and put a stop to you, to your lies.  That they will be strong where we were weak, educated where we were ignorant, and brave where we ran off to do something else.

Because I have to have hope in something, so I’m putting it into the children we’ve raised with the knowledge, strength and bravery we didn’t have.  That they will either rise as an example or lead others in the struggle to survive.

Or else it was all for nothing.

Rye Playland was shut down Tuesday after cops scuffled with Muslims upset that women wearing head scarves were barred from the rides, witnesses said.

Fifteen people, including three women, were charged with disorderly conduct and assault in the chaos, authorities said.


The article goes on to say that...


Quote
The ban, which is not Muslim specific, was imposed about 3 years ago mostly to prevent hats from falling onto the tracks of roller coasters and other rides, park officials said.

I don't think that's going to fly with this one though.  :sad:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Discouraging economic data from around the globe have heightened fears that another recession is on the way.

Fresh evidence emerged Thursday that U.S. home sales and manufacturing are weakening. Signs also surfaced that European banks are increasingly burdened by the region's debt crisis and sputtering economy.

The rising anxiety ignited a huge sell-off in stocks that led many investors to seek the safety of U.S. Treasurys.


Am I the only person who didn't realize we were out of the last recession?

« on: July 08, 2011, 01:35:10 pm »
US Department of Education
Alphabet© Division
Agent 5-69


Dear Mr. LMNO;

We are writing you to inform you that it has been brought to our attention that you have been using multiple letters from the Alphabet© without the proper applications being submitted for approval.  These letters, capitol L, capitol M, capitol N and capitol O are not just there for you to toy with as you see fit.  These letters are sacred and should be treated as such.  Not tossed around on subversive internet sites as if they were common.

These letters sir are subject to the copywrite laws and not only have individual copywrite but group ones as well.  To use these letters without the proper approval should be illegal. 

As well, we have been made aware of your degenerative behavior and the fact that you play that rock and roll music in public.  Not only that, but you have shown a continued play on innuendo in circumstances that are a bit sketchy.  The worse however is this Mr. LMNO.  We have been told, and sent pictures as evidence, that you Mr. LMNO, are a hipster.

How can you face the children at the local bus stop every morning knowing that you are misrepresenting the sanctity and virtue of our Alphabet ©.  Think of the children sir.  Think of them learning their letters and the trauma that they will face each time they reach the letter K.  Their little faces scrunched in fear and confusion.  What if they follow your wayward example and they themselves play that rock and roll or worse, become hipsters?  How can you live with yourself is beyond our comprehension.

You will need to complete the following forms in order to use the capitol L, capitol M, capitol N and capitol O.  Form 328B-4, Form B-52, Form FU-69, Form JK-9 parts A, B and E.  In addition we will need no less than 5 character references stating that you have turned your back on your wicked ways and will represent our capitol L, capitol M, capitol N and capitol O in a manner becoming them.

We are demanding that you cease and desist immediately, if not sooner, the use of our precious capitol L, capitol M, capitol N and capitol O until such time your applications are approved.  For the duration we will allow you the use of the little l, little m, little n and little o.

This is a serious matter sir, and we will be keeping tabs on the situation.  It is not just everyone who is allowed the use of our capitol L, capitol M, capitol N and capitol O.  Remember that. 

Sincerely,

Geraldine Q. Washerburgensen
Department Head

Or Kill Me / Never borrow the Emperor's clothes....
« on: June 15, 2011, 03:49:30 pm »
Hey look at me….  Yes you there doing your own thing, minding your own business…

LOOK. AT. ME. DAMMIT!!!

Because that is what it is, that attention whoring, drama llama bullshit.  The whining and the bitching and the everything is wrong with my life or even worse, the bragging as if the people around them are just too mundane to have anything good to talk about themselves.  And you know, it’s ok, everyone needs to vent and everyone wants to share good news.

The problem arises when that is all that happens.  You vent and vent and vent some more, completely ignoring any advice that you might be given by people who have been in your situation and may G*A*S*P know a little something about fixing your fucking problem, or at least relieving a bit of your pain.  Or you brag and brag and just don’t notice that people have pretty much started ignoring you because they are sick of it. 

So what is the need people have to continuously be the center of attention.  I used to think it was just crappy parenting.  I don’t know anymore.  I think some people are just hardwired to believe that their personal lives are far more important to the people around them, more imprtant than say the people’s actual lives.

My biggest issue with people like this is the typical….. “Oh lookie, this is what is happening to me…..” and when they are given serious advice on how to correct the situation, congratulations or just a LOL, they completely ignore it.  Or they pick out one line of a paragraph of information and THAT is the only thing they have anything to comment on. 

The thing is, this happens everywhere.  We all have that person we work with who you just avoid.  The neighbor you drive past your own driveway to avoid.  The clerk at the grocery, the waitress at the local bar, online, offline, they are everywhere.  Then you have the person being the drama llama, they look around one day and realize they have driven off evry person they thought were their friend and then have the nerve to blame the friends instead of wondering maybe, just maybe if they had done something.
 
People just don't want the added drama. 

I find that very rarely does anyone have the heart, balls or maybe stupidity to tell this person…..  “You are a fucking drama whore and you need to shut the fuck up and listen instead of continuously bitching and/or moaning and/or bragging.” 

Or maybe just a simple, “You know, that outfit looked nice on the Emperor when he wore it.”

Dear TCC Refugees:

Weclome to PD.com.  I have volunteered to act as your benevolent liason for your first few days/weeks here, or until you make 50 posts, at which time all deals are off. For your first 50 posts I can, with some certainty, promise you will not be verbally assaulted, WOMPed, made extreme fun of, or put in time out.  Well we actually don't have time out, we just give you shit till you run away screaming. 

Anyway, you will find available for your amusement, horror or quite possibly abject terror a variety of threads here on the board.  If you find a running story line, please, feel free to join in.  If we hate it, it will not be deleted but we will make terrible fun of you to our own amusement.

On this board we have very few rules. Please refer to this thread for those rules http://www.principiadiscordia.com/forum/index.php?topic=25992.0 We don't care if you curse, we aren't going to get butthurt if you insult anyone, in truth, for the most part we are all big live and let live advocates.

However, there are a few things you might want to avoid doing because even I, your benevolent liason cannot save you if you.... act like a complete douche, tell us how to be really real discordians, are unable to defend your position, or, and this is a big one, you forget to send a bottle of 30 year old scotch to the managment, our God Payne, Goddess Pixie and most important, our God and Spiritual advisor, The Good Reverend Roger.   You might want to send a pint to everyone else on the board, but that's not required.

I wish you all the best and look forward to seeing what you can do in a truly free environment.

Love and Arsenic,

Khara aka DOOM MONKEY
