In 1992 – White South Africans voted for constitutional reforms that would give legal equality to blacks.
– Apartheid was formally ended in 1994 but … well you know
It’s another rant … finding it almost amusing to see how easy folks seem to throw out labels to describe the actions comments and stance of candidates of the democratic party in a time when this government is seemingly a kleptocracy while living a kakistocracy and a wannabe autocrat… trump, is NOT who folks voted for and the plan to change America was set a while back and seems Mcconnell and the other republican cronies have been waiting for …. thing is, no one really wanted the acting gig until the birther grabbed us by the …bleep and while setting all our government agencies on fire, the rule of law, regular order and morality seems at risk each day makes you think back to at least POTUS41 … but then hey reality steps in as POC are targeted, police seem triggered to kill black folks, the problem of young white males continuing to access guns, more schools are on lockdown, several babies die; the establishment hold lockdown drills give teachers guns yet, another mass shooting occurs but nothing changes more unarmed black men dead and nothing happens. The idea that an activist is actually run over and some states decide to change to pass red flag laws but can’t improve background checks are amazingly offensive.
Remembering the bush timeline is sad; the guy acted impetuously then drove our economy into a ditch literally while Wall Street’s creative accounting procedures finally came to an ugly head. There was once an epic documentary called House of cards by David Faber on Cnbc. It was a cruel reminder and or an awakening at how greed affects the mind, it was a truthful documentation of the nasty journey our economy took … for whom, by whom and how it (they) brought all of us down with them knowing the Government would pay for it all along … Unfortunately, the current trump show doesn’t look at all like the one we watched shortly after our financial system collapsed because this is a moment in time or in this era of trump when the question below isn’t so far fetched … or worse
Are You having an existential crisis?
The existential crisis is something many people may face at one point or another in their lives when the world seems to become less meaningful and purposeful. People may question the inner logic of social systems, of their religion, of everything they have once held true, and they do so while becoming much more conscious of the brevity of life.
What is an existential issue?
quite simply, are issues that have to do with the plight of human existence, with the meaning of life, and what meaning, if any, our lives have.
trump has definitely set off a cause and effect with certain behaviors of human nature … is anyone else questioning their inner selves? hoping trump supporters are!
on what it means to affirm one’s own individual personal choices and consequences for such choices …and yes in this current hostile environment living an authentic life is important but at risk
If we have to subscribe to labels … call me a Marxist who believes in Socialism at this time… We need someone who cares, who is socially responsible and who believes the gap between the haves and have none needs to shrink; school me …what can be wrong with caring for all the people of the US … not just the one percent… especially since that one percent has been wheeling and dealing; starting from the house of bush and trickled down to Mainstreet . You have to admit it is time for a change.
Obama was not a socialist or a Marxist … he is a centrist, a person whose political opinions are not extreme: a person whose beliefs fall between those of liberals and conservatives … Question is what do trump supporters call him now?
