|Yep and sadly enough, it has been that way since all my life. Civil rights movement was a good thing but many were incarcerated and well did away with for trying to CREATE CHANGES in our country. I like what Malcolm X said though coz its true he said this, "We didn't land on Plymouth Rock, Plymouth Rock landed o n us". Very true too and NO, Malcolm X was not a racist one bit. What he said was true. Just read "Soul On Ice" by a man called Eldridge Cleaver and he was an author, activist and later on a member of the Black Panthers party here in my country. He was extremely intelligent, wise, insight and caring and was trying to bring about necessary change to our country and he was born in 1935. Hard times to be a person color back then but he was also true to what was right. |
They didnt teach us African-American history or any history about important minorities when I was a kid. They taught us a SMALL amount but thats it. I never learned about Native Americans, Latinos, Asians and etc. as I had to learn those things on my own. These things were not looked upon in a positive manner when I was in school and I graduated from high school in 1974. I went to college in the 1980s as I was busy with various careers in the corporate workplace. A woman job is in the CORPORATE workplace. Im not a FEMINIST either as I truly believe in EQUAL RIGHGS for all human beings regardless of race, religion, color, beliefs, gender or no gender identity etc.
It was hard being a PANSEXUAL growing up too as I had to stay in the closet or get picked on by everyone including my family. They did not EXCEPT that sort of thing in the 1960s and certainly not in the 1970s either, not for me anyway. I was taught and brainwashed to be STRAIGHT only and that was the only path form me from what everyone said and society told me. I didnt want to be ALONE and estranged from my family so I kept my life to myself and never talked about it. YES, I we had PANSEXUALITY back then and NO, its not the same thing one bit as BISEXUAL, thats very different. I dont care if people dont accept that about me now either as that is how Ive always been and people should accept that about me as its never going to change. I got TIRED of having to HIDE that about me my entire life. I never even CAME OUT to my family but they knew for years about me and how I lived my life. Too bad if they were not accepting of my lifestyle as they only wanted to ARGUE about that when I brought it up when I was a teenager. That was a mistake as they would ARGUE for hours at a time about my life being WRONG and SINFUL. I respect my family but they were wrong to feel that way about me too. They were racists anyway and they admitted it later on.
Anyway, everyone wants to live in peace, that is my believe just some of us on the globe have not figured out the best PATH to get there yet. Hugs, education and just TOLERANCE for DIFFERENCES in each other, things like that.
Travel is one the best things and education a person can ever do. Its a GIFT to travel meet people of all kinds from all over the world and LEARN all about their culture, cuisine, languages, etc. Yep, exactly some people are simply SHELTERED or well, in some cases some of them are narrow minded/close minded about certain things. Ive seen that so I know thats true about certain people. I have to LEARN about the world and its people and everything as it STILL helps me GROW in every way as a person of course.
Oh yeah, pro-education is the best way to be. Knowledge is power and NOT the kind of power that can be ABUSED --power to educate your mind and soul and see that the world CAN become a better place in POSITIVE ways and not a negative place. We all NEED to get along and I think most people want that too. People say NO coz their afraid I think, even good people fear CHANGE. Change is constant in the universe, molecules and everything is CHANGING all around us all the time, every day and every night. We cannot change time as time is not the problem. We have to make TIME work for us, to build UNDERSTANDING in the world so we CAN all get along and RESOLVE our differences and have a world that is TRULY UNITED. We need that, I dont care if a person is an infant or an elderly person in their 90's we need to have a UNITED PLANET once and for all.
People say OH maybe the NEXT generation can do that --I have hope and faith in that. Next generation comes along and TRIES to do good and solve things in the world that NEED solving yet RACISM and other negative things still exist. We cannot put off this problem any longer. The time has come for people of the world to get along.
Yep people do shoo others away sometimes when you want to share how you think and feel about things. I guess it is just human nature to do that I dont know. I wish I did know why we all just cannot get along WELL enough yet. I thought by the 21st century people would TRY HARDER to get along and have peace nd understanding and love each other in positive ways now. Still lots of work to be done but I know lots of people are trying hard to make things happen in that regard. Peace is important and when I was a KID in the 1960s it was not JUST a SYMBOL on LOVE BEADS that you wore around your neck, it meant something to MY GENERATION and it always will to be. It has great meaning and it always will for me.
Read some books about The Black Panther Party in America for example. Their not racist ONE BIT like some ignorant Caucasians said they were back. I was reading books about The Black Panther Party in the early 1960s coz I heard about that on TV and in school too and from friends. We all got SICK of how minorities were treated back then so we all EMPOWERED ourselves with KNOWLEDGE and wisdom. See, they cant take knowledge and wisdom away from a person, so those are great things to have as a person of course.
American USED to be a good country in some ways but now its just a JOKE to me and everyone else that lives here. Its a running riot and crazy here. Its like America is the ANYTHING GOES country worse than ANY of those SCRIPTED reality TV programs I dont watch and dont like!!! Their no fun to watch anyway for me. lol

|See Im not being negative, I am what I call "a realistic dreamer meaning I am REALISTIC about life and this world in general dreamer coz I am a very POSITIVE person in every way. Life in the U.S. is not good. We live in a place where DEMOCRACY is not what the FOUNDERS of this great country intended. Its not about WHO IS PRESIDENT like people say either. Capitalism is mixed in with democracy -okay thats FINE if done property but it tends to make BUSINESS OWNERS esp. CORPORATE ones GREEDY. It tends to make certain people GREEDY too or they can and DO become greedy with time. I am 63 years old so I know what I am talking about. |
In this country where we are taught from BIRTH to "consume all you can, its the American way, the good life" greedy and being selfish is accepted.
Sure I believe in democracy and FREEDOM but if you call America freedom then you have NO IDEA what freedom and democracy really are and what their supposed to mean originally since the dawn of time. Freedom is not free either. We worked hard to do things right in this country but lots of those things were horribly done too for ONE thing, the DECIMATION of the Native Americans since we first came to this country. Racial equality --I grew UP during the CIVIL RIGHTS ERA --1960s and in the 1970s it was STILL a huge problem. Martin Luther King Jr. is my FAVORITE person and favorite historical figure ever and BIGOTS/RACISTS killed him as they wanted to SILENCE him for his POSITIVE message and what he knew was good for our country and the world.
I always listened to his speeches on TV since at least age 5. He did not simply believe in racial equality for AFRICAN-AMERICANS --he wanted that for ALL people. He was a religious man and a true Christian. Dr. King was NEVER a hypocrite. I know a lot about Black History but they didnt TEACH much of that in the schools when I grew up in the 50's, 60's and when I was still in school at grade 12 which is when HIGH SCHOOL ends in America. Civl rights leaders were NOT talked about much at all during that time as it was a VERY HOT TOPIC during the CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT.
This country is RACIST, no gender equality and lots of them are against TRANSGENDER people too. Homophobic too and lots of the politicians are that way. Its sad that in 2019 people feel the need to HATE so much. I just think its sad and not needed of course.
I want peace, harmony and UNITY in this world --instead the world is DIVIDED and we FIGHT and KILL each other over RIDICULOUS things and even a TODDLER knows that. Go get little Johnny a GUN for a toy was the mentality when I was a kid and make sure little Susie plays with DOLLS so she can grow up to be feminine and fit into the standard female stereotype.
I was ALWAYS a girly girl and also a tomboy so I never cared what kids or adults thought about that.
I think this world has a LOT of improvements to make but I wont see all that in my life, not the way things are going now. I thought by now people of the WORLD would get along better. We HAVE to UNITE, get along, LOVE EACH OTHER and work together to make t his world a much better place for future generations and to ensure that the Earth will be here for them and a good place to call home. Those are points.
Ive heard enough about people from OTHER nations called us fat, stupid, ignorant, apathetic, self-centered, we only care about MONEY and our line of credit and how many burgers and fries we can stuff in our fat faces, things like that. It makes me sick as I have NEVER been that way in my entire life so those people CANNOT assume I am like that. I am a good person, a SPIRITUAL person that loves EVERYONE. Love sees no color. Love one another is what I believe in as human beings. We dont even RESPECT each other as humans thats why we have battles and wars and BUILD weapons of mass detruction.
Hmm, it would be SAD indeed if ONE DAY people decided to use NUCLEAR BOMBS and all those other things on each other. I hope I never live to see that day coz that will mean that humans have GIVEN UP on each other.
They send enough nuclear weapons all over the Earth, life here WILL end as we know it, oh sure, not in OUR LIFETIME but it will be in sometimes lifetime but lets HOPE that never happens. Sadly enough HOPE does not always do the trick and work miracles and make things happen.
Ive seen bad things and Ive seen many GOOD things too, but the BAD things Ive seen will darken your soul and teach your heart, mind and spirit NEVER to act like those people. I have learned a great deal about NEGATIVE people just from watching it all happen in 63 years of life. SURE, I have great HOPE for this world and I hope nothing but GOOD THINGS happen from this day on and into the future but in the garden you might always find a few THORNS along the way ---thats the best way to put it.
They dont have to take anything in America. They do take things away from us all the time and its true. I worked from age 13 FULL-TIME and still made ALL A's (our top grade, not bragging either, I worked for those grades) in school including college.
Nope, I have lost faith and hope in America. It is just a place to live for me now. The American dream is just that, a broken dream. Our wonderful IMMIGRANTS come here thinking OH I can do this YES but its SUPER HARD for them to have a good life and sometimes they can barely survive here --coz of how MESSED UP things here, what the politicians have let this country become.
Don't believe me and want to call me PESSIMISTIC instead --thats fine --just use SEARCH ENGINES like GOOGLE they will tell the TRUTH about this once great nation.
It was pretty good back in 1950s and 1960s but you cannot say that with ASSASSINATIONS of Martin Luther King Jr. many other African-American Civil Rights leaders, other minority people involved in things to CHANGE this country for the best and they still had LYNCHING of minority members ALL THE TIME. KKK and other RACIST/BIGOTED groups are HUGE here and its wrong. We have neo-nazis just like other countries do and their VERY ACTIVE here and its very sad and it will make you angry and sad coz those are HATEFUL people that JUSTIFY their hate.
I love EVERYONE and I hope the BIGOTED people change their ways. Really though America is a bad place to live --sorry if OTHER AMERICANS told you its a good place to live but its rotten to the core. YES, I am PATRIOTIC and I love this country but Ive also seen what has become of this once good country.
It might not change for the BEST in my lifetime but I hope and pray that it does. America needs to change for it's own good and for the good of it's people. Everyone knows that.
I would move if I could to another country. I would have to keep my American citizenship though as I get my disability/soon to be old age benefits and money that way and I also get my Veteran's rights that way since I served in the American military and yes, I liked it fine, it was NEVER my plan to do that for 30 years. It was merely a STEPPING STONE in my career path is all it was. I got what I wanted from the Navy, RESPECT from family, friends, other people and from my EMPLOYERS and I gained VALUABLE JOB SKILLS during my time in the U.S. Navy. Never got on a SHIP to serve and thats another reason I left. lol. Sorry but its true. I only went on BOATS and I had SHORE DUTY in California. California is great though and that is STILL my favorite state.

|I dont like SYNTHETIC things at all -even ones the experts say have been tested to be safe. I say things that come from the Earth/Mother Nature are the best things for me. Synthetic things are FINE for technology since I dont CONSUME as in eating those things and cant drink them!!! Ah, my digestive problem is not going away but guess what, its just good to be ALIVE and to be very happy and to have a wonderful friend -IngiVamp is her name!! Friendship and family are the greatest gifts of all. Okay people are a great gift -once you get to know most people you see the GOOD in them too of course --well, thats how I am. I see the GOOD in people, even the worst people coz CHANGE IS CONSTANT, yes positive and negative change. sometimes PEOPLE change on their own without meaning to, sometimes they bring about CHANGE on their own. It takes NEGATIVE and POSITIVE energy to make a world but I focus on the positive energy and positive things in life. Negative energy simply creates MORE negative and chaos in the world. Everyone should know these things by now and your wise and smart so I know you realize those things. I like talking to thinkers --ya know, smart people that always want to listen and learn. Thats me -Im still LEARNING things daily in life. See, my journey that we call life is not over despite my being 63. Most Americans do not even RETIRE at that age. I never retired my health simply got in my way of working full-time. I had a CAREER too not just a job. A plain job is fine, but I worked HARD and went to college to establish my career.|
Nope, not bitter at all coz I plan on returning to work. I know how to NETWORK my abilities, skills, communication skills I have and Im good with people. Im EFFICIENT and caring, very time oriented, important for jobs yet multifaceted meaning I can do tons of stuff AT ONCE one the job. I enjoy that. Lots more too but thats some of the basics.
See I plan on getting an UNSKILLED job, then to find something else entry level THEN when my future company sees Im good at what I do and that I love it and that Im an ASSET and not a liability for their company, I will either stay there or seek employment elsewhere.
Lots of people at my age still work, coz we want to. I meet people to socialize with merely by working. I can save money. I get OUT of the house all the time when working full-time. Im not a HOMEBODY so I keep busy when Im at home coz thats just how I am naturally. Yeah, I know HOW to relax but on DISABILITY status and checks, that is all I do is relax. I want more from my life and I do know how to get it.
I just need to apply for jobs and go get them. Their out there too for consciousness people who are DEPENDALE and mature like me too. I have confidence in myself and my abilities and yes, Im totally realistic. Sitting at home and not doing USEFUL things is not good.

|Well, that is true for my COUNTRY as a whole, my I only use ORGANIC and natural gardening methods. That is what I believe in and so did my paternal grandfather and he taught me a lot about gardening and how to grow and tend plants of all kinds. Yes, its a SHAME about bees and how there are SEVEN types of bees on the endangered list. Ive been saying all my life --DONT USE fake stuff and fake chemicals as their not safe. I was reading about CARCINOGENS just today --canccer causing things including foods and beverages and my good I saw some huge list, took notes as some of the foods I already know about but some of them I had never heard as being known to cause cancer in people. Glad I leaned a lot today too. |
Yeah their dealign with Rainn's passing better now but I know they still miss him. Budgies are very sweet birds. You see I still play with them even thought the adult birds are not very tame. I can have my hands in their cage and they dont mind. I talk to them both while standing RIGHT beside the cage and they like that --they like everything except for getting picked up and petted. Sky always perched on my finger before and then he would SIT on the top of my hand but he has not done that since Rain passed away.

|Hugs are great but ONLY with good friends and if their sincere so I enjoy having HUGS with you!! "hugs you again" today!! Its FATHER'S DAY here in America but my Dad passed away in July 2012 at age 85 from a bacterial infection and heart problems. I love him always and I miss him more than words ever say. I always hoped they would live longer since they had such good medical care and they always followed their doctors advice about exercise and they followed a heart healthy diet including low fat foods only --low salt also since salt is bad when you have heart disease. I never liked salt much at all and dont like salty foods either. They just dont appeal to me one bit.|
