Dreamer’s World June 21, 2018 – Digging A Hole

    After I finished my first blog post today, I started wondering about how the awful effects of having a Nazi in the White House might affect us. One thing really startled me.
    RWNJ lunatics like to point out that people who come to this country should be restricted because they could be enemies or terrorists. This is a valid point, and should not be underestimated. However, putting children in concentration camps might be the worst thing that we could do. These people coming here are in search of a better life for themselves and their children. Treating them like subhumans, and treating their children like criminals might have the effect of creating more enemies and terrorists than we already face.
    We don’t need more enemies unless you subscribe to the RWNJ Nazi view of the world that anyone who disagrees with you, or looks different than you, or comes from another country or ethnic background is already a threat. I refute that point of view, we need more love in this world and not more hatred. Sadly, the Nazi in the White House seems hellbent on making new enemies whenever and wherever he can.
    RWNJ and the Nazi in the White House are our biggest threats to our security.
 

Dreamer’s World June 21, 2018 – What Have We Become?

        Since today is the longest day of the year, it only seems right to direct the maximum light onto this country and ask “What In The FUCK Is Wrong With Us?”
    The news is filled with stories of people hating each other publicly. We have opened a Pandora’s Box of dangerous emotion and hatred ever since the RWNJ fringe came to power in this country. The Nazi in the White House has been leading the charge of these hate-filled fanatics and shows no sign of slowing down. I find it hard to believe that there are so many hate-filled people in this country. They are the first to claim how much they love this nation, but they are also the first to show how little they understand it.
The US was founded by immigrants, but today the followers of the Nazi in the White House would gladly promote genocide if their idiot leader told them that is what he wanted. Their hatred doesn’t stop there, of course.
Any minority is the subject of their wrath
because they sadly believe that only people as stupid and truly disgusting as they are should live here. Every day, we find another example of some racist RWNJ caught on video showing their hatred for other people. Racial hate crimes are increasing, but since the Nazi in the White House thinks Nazis are “very fine people,” they proceed without fear of condemnation or punishment.
The fact that RWNJ oppose most hate-crime legislation shows their true colors to the rest of us. I have to believe that there are more of us who love each other than there are of those who just hate everyone. My faith in this is tested each and every day.
A musician and a college football coach post racist things online, and it hardly raises an eyebrow anymore. This is the same pathetic response we have to mass killings. These things happen so frequently that we just accept them as normal and move on with our lives. They are NOT NORMAL, and we SHOULD RESIST with all of our strength.
The LGBTQ community feels the hatred from the RWNJ on a daily basis. The progress towards equality is being rolled back on the tidal wave of hatred.
Children are put into concentration camps because of the background of their parents, and there is outrage, but nothing will result from that outrage. The RWNJ know that this will become the new normal very soon. It is part of their plan to turn this nation into the 4th Reich, led by the Naxi in the White House.

Dreamer’s World March 25, 2018 – Food For Thought

    I am still processing the #MarchForOurLives event that happened yesterday. I am affected more than I realized at the time by what I saw and heard, and it has me thinking about things. The things on my mind are deep and complex. I never thought I would be facing them today.
    The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. made his famous speech in Washington DC on August 28, 1963. I wasn’t born yet, but as a child, I learned about the importance of that day and that speech and what it meant to America and the world. It was a milestone in history, and the effects still resonate today.
    I heard multiple mentions of Dr. King and his message yesterday. I was stunned and pleasantly surprised to see Yolanda Renee King, the granddaughter of Dr. King appear and speak at the rally yesterday. It is clear that the message Dr. King left to us is still potent and applicable to each generation. We still have a long way to go, and we can never rest until the journey is complete.
    The #MarchForOurLives event yesterday has the potential to be a seminal event in this nation’s history in the same way that Dr. King’s speech was. There were differences, Dr. King was already well-known before his speech, the Parkland students and those they invited to share the stage with them aren’t public figures….yet. I saw several of the young adults that will be formidable leaders in whatever they choose as their career path.
    Dr. King spoke for almost 20 minutes. I don’t believe any of the speakers yesterday approached that length with their speeches. I don’t feel this is a significant factor because the total length of the combined speeches yesterday was far more than Dr. King’s speech.
    I have the suspicion that I witnessed something extraordinary yesterday.  I believe yesterday was a seminal moment in our history.  I am not ready to elevate yesterday to the level of Dr. King, but I am not willing to write it off as insignificant either. Time will tell how future generations will compare the two events.

Dreamer’s World March 24, 2018 – March For Our Lives

    
I don’t know how to describe my reaction to the #MarchForOurLives rally that took place in Washington, D.C. earlier today. Hours later, and I a still feeling intense emotions about what I witnessed on TV. Tears flowed as I watched and listened, I am sure that happened to plenty of people around the country and the world.
     I am proud of these kids. I admire their tenacity and their persistence. I respect them for their dedication to this cause after being thrust into tragedy against their will.
     I am amazed at how quickly they turned tragedy into a call for action through social media. They suffered the accusations of being fakes, of being paid actors, of being political pawns, and have emerged as a force to be reckoned with in the future.
     I picture myself at their age and wonder if I could have done the things that they have? I honestly want to think so, but I am glad that I never had to learn to become a good citizen and an inspiration to others due to a tragedy like they did.
     I watched and heard and saw them become young adults in the last five weeks. Even while some of them were speaking today, I could hear that they are still the teenagers that they are supposed to be in spite of what has happened to them.
     I am thrilled that they learned to include others who have suffered from the same terrible violence. They recognized that their notoriety gave them the responsibility to speak out for everyone, and not just for themselves. Acknowledging and sharing the stage with others from different parts of the country showed great wisdom. It also demonstrated that these young adults are savvy beyond their years. The Parkland students acknowledged that they are only the most famous, not the only victims of gun violence.
      saw plenty of potential leaders speak today. Our nation will be better if we encourage them, it will suffer if we ignore them.

My emotions are still in flux here. Eventually, things will settle down, and I can get a handle on things again. Until then, take a moment and remember the lyrics that the late John Lennon penned for “Instant Karma.”

“Why In The World Are We Here? Surely Not To Live In Pain And Fear.”
