Marxism? Socialism? what ism are you?


beaseedforchangestickersGREENIt’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?

“remember the ladies” a letter from Abigail Adams


womens_day_2013GOOGLEfeatured photo is from google

In a letter dated March 31, 1776, Abigail Adams writes to her husband, John Adams, urging him and the other members of the Continental Congress not to forget about the nation’s women when fighting for America’s independence from Great Britain.

The future First Lady wrote in part, “I long to hear that you have declared an independency. And, by the way, in the new code of laws which I suppose it will be necessary for you to make, I desire you would remember the ladies and be more generous and favorable to them than your ancestors. Do not put such unlimited power into the hands of the husbands. Remember, all men would be tyrants if they could. If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies, we are determined to foment a rebellion, and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no voice or representation.”

Nearly 150 years before the House of Representatives voted to pass the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote, Adams letter was a private first step in the fight for equal rights for women. Recognized and admired as a formidable woman in her own right, the union of Abigail and John Adams persists as a model of mutual respect and affection; they have since been referred to as “America’s first power couple.” Their correspondence of over 1,000 letters written between 1762 and 1801 remains in the Massachusetts Historical Society and continues to give historians a unique perspective on domestic and political life during the revolutionary era.

Abigail bore six children, of whom five survived. Abigail and John’s eldest son, John Quincy Adams, served as the sixth president of the United States. Only two women, Abigail Adams and Barbara Bush, have been both wives and mothers of American presidents.
