Food and Riots a well known history.

Ferguson Control World Pic 1

 

“President Obama signs $8.7 billion food stamp cut into law” happens right before the Ferguson riots. It is not a “one guy got shot” problem at the roots. http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/obama-signs-food-stamp-cut

If food and social services cuts went too deep, this is J-U-S-T how it would look! Often hitting female applicants with children the hardest. The rich were killed in nightmare ways in the French Revolution, and it is a part of history not good to repeat in the United States.

“Who is to blame in one country? Never can get to the one.” Ferguson riot ups plays of Electric Avenue

Electric Avenue is based on the 1981 Brixton riot, Electric Avenue was a riot street in London.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_Avenue_(song)

“Let them eat cake.” Was a famous chant in the French Revolution riots, an phrase icon of how the rich did not care if the poor had food.

“Can’t get food for the kids.” is a chant in Electric Avenue, a song about London riots.

The rich were killed in nightmare ways in the French Revolution, and it is a part of history not good to repeat in the United States.

I got “you are dark” comments on a few Internet pages for posting these well known facts of history. News, books, and being well read IS dark. Being too perky can mean you lack information.

Just like the French leaders who would say…. “Let them eat cake.”

More on the value of education.

Ball Universe Joke 1

 

More on the value of education.  I am not the first person to notice that it is odd that teachers often make the same income as fry cooks.  Meanwhile, tossing a basketball around makes some people millions in cash.  When did this become a norm of activity?  There is also a popular bumper sticker saying, “It will be a great day when the Airforce has to hold a bakesale to buy a bomber, and schools have all the money they need.”  It is professional men’s basketball which tends to have high incomes and lucrative endorsement deals, and the military is a male-dominated profession.  In contrast, nursing and teaching have a heavy female component to their population.  It is hard to ignore that it is in part a devaluation of female’s place in society, and their work value, which has helped create an income gap.

More on new job.

Comic Dream Job 1

 

Got hired for a – job! Got hired for a jo-b! *Does dance* Of course getting a bit of work does not mean you are “set for life” per-sey.  But change is good at this point.

Loan debt is scary, but needed.

Student Debt Start with Nothing Joke 2

 

I’m headed back to college in a couple of weeks.  Loan debt is scary, but needed.  Student debt may be pricey, but it is what you have to do these days. In a day and age when all the jobs are harder to get by the second, you have to work extra-long to stay above average.

Williams makes it go away.

William War News Joke 1

 

I loved Robin Williams’ comedy so much when I was a kid.  It almost feels like a family member died.  If he had to die, I am almost glad it happened the way it did. In the USA there tends to be a stereotype that the only people who claim to have depression are spoiled rich kids, and crack heads ten seconds away from death.  Williams made people see that it is human beings who battle depression.

A drawback however, is that he has so dominated the news nothing else gets attention.  A full world is outside one man who lived in the wealthy section of Hollywood.

Males tend to succeed in suicide at advanced levels to women, and yet women report depression in greater numbers compared to males. “Women are nearly twice as likely as men to have depression.” According to Mayo Clinic (“Depression in women, understanding the gender gap.” http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/depression/in-depth/depression/art-20047725) This issue shows that healthcare conditions need to improve for both genders.  If a male as wealthy as Williams could not get care in time, the situation is far worse for people suffering worse financial problems.

More on the Rush Hour.

peter_griffin unemployed joke 1

It looks like I may be getting a new job with new hours soon. I have always been working out two hours a day five days a week for years now with my Fitbit. Yet employment is itself a form of fitness. The Family Guy episode where Peter is unemployed, and they have to pick him up with a forklift kind of pokes fun at that fact. There is no subsitute for the daily rush hour.

A day to remember it is not always just a cry for help when people try to kill themselves…

Smart Boy Bremmer Pic 1

 

The Robin Williams “suicide by asphyxia” death makes it a day to remember it is not always just a cry for help when people try to kill themselves…

“Suicide used to be regarded as shocking and blasphemous, and a coroner’s verdict of ‘felo de se’ – literally crime against oneself – usually resulted in the body being buried at a crossroads, with a stake through the heart, and with no religious ceremony.” – Monday 30th January 2012 Submitted by Rob Attar “Why were suicides supposed to be buried at crossroads” http://www.historyextra.com/qa/end-road

“No cry for help. She killed herself. Both life and love could not be saved. She took them both to the grave… An endless night – this, the end of life, From the dark I feel your lips, And I taste your bloody kiss, Don’t die on me, Don’t die on me, Don’t die on me” – Song quote Type O Negative “Bloody Kisses”    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJK4i16tXck

Some say being genius gifted as a child often causes suicidal depression. Robin Williams was a child genius actor who went to Juilliard and early death reports say he was “suicide by asphyxia”.  Amadeus Mozart was a child genius who composed from the age of five, and suicide often listed as his cause of death. (He is depicted as committing suicide and being put in an insane asylum in the famous biographical movie “Amadeus” 1984 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0086879/ ) Brandenn Brehmmer graduated high school at the age of 10 and shot himself by age 14.  Countless other examples exist where people are sure that a well-to-do achiever, who took honors classes as a child, with degrees, who goes out of their way to seem “happy in a crowd” must be just “seeking attention” when they confess to depression and “seem fine”.  I have had to seek therapy in the past for depression, and was a gifted honors student, who skipped many grades, and graduated high school extra young. I had an unfortunate moment of extreme empathy when I heard that part of the Robin Williams story. He was a bright person being haunted by visions of a perfect world that corporations and greed will never let happen. People are sure it is all an attention-game and ploy.  Unfortunately, this means friends and family keep them from taking time off from full time jobs and seeking help, which means even worse depression results.  America is a victim-blaming society, which quickly “blames” people who are suffering real physical illness for their own pain if they have ever had a glass of wine too many or stayed at a party too late.  It is important to remember that thousands really die from suicide every year. Some people who seem moody and death obsessed – really are moody and death obsessed, and it is not a “gimmick” for attention. Prejudice against the ill is often inflicted on people seeking care in the United States, and more healthcare programs need to be sensitive to this documented fact.  2014 has been a year of bad deaths H.R. Giger, Rik Mayall, and it makes me sad to say Robin Williams joined them in pain.  He was not well treated in the end, and I have felt his journey. May he Rest In Peace.

Males tend to succeed in suicide at advanced levels to women, and yet women report depression in greater numbers compared to males. “Women are nearly twice as likely as men to have depression.” According to Mayo Clinic (“Depression in women, understanding the gender gap.” http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/depression/in-depth/depression/art-20047725) This issue shows that healthcare conditions need to improve for both genders.  If a male as wealthy as Williams could not get care in time, the situation is far worse for people suffering worse financial problems.
