Okay, so…THE PIETA

White Marble Statue of a Man

A lot of people see The Pieta as a religious statue, but I think it’s a statue of just another gang killing.  Another killing over IDEAS and BELIEFS, neither of which are actually real, but simply made up by someone for profit, or because of  generations of brainwashing and conditioning..

The Pieta has nothing to do with anything, but a mother holding her dead son, something that happens pretty much everyday, in cities everywhere.  Wars are just really big gang fights over greed, insanity and clashing ideas and beliefs..  They last a long time,  but still, no different than this picture.  A mother looking at her dead child.  That’s what the Pieta IS…It represents MOTHER’S MOURNING THE SENSELESS DEATH OF THEIR CHILDREN, because men love to kill.

And again, what kind of god sends his only kid to die for him? If that’s not a red flag, you’d think the rapist priests would be but…brainwashing really works.  You can tell, because people still go to church and they still send their kids, as well.

Okay, so…here’s the problem

The biggest problem the masses have, and the reason we don’t get very much done is…  there are so many issues.

I’ve said this before and it’s the truth.  We have a million little groups, all working for the thing/s they think are important to them.  And yes, all the issues are important to the people working for them, but there are so many issues that no one group has enough power or backing to ever get anything changed.

Resources are divided to such an extent, that all groups are pretty much powerless when working against the machine.

In order to get anything done, people would have to come together and work on one issue. They would have to pool their resources and then hammer it home.  If we continue to work on our own special issues, we are lost and will never get anywhere that will actually matter.  A group may be thrown a crumb or two but real change will never be forthcoming, unless it suits the people running the show.

Power divided can not accomplish anything.  If we work together on an issue…we can bring about real change.  The people who enslave us know this.  That’s one reason they keep the issues alive, like a juggler, keeping the balls in the air, so that we fight against each other, or don’t join together so that we’re powerful enough to make a difference.

Again:  Where are the kids fighting for gun control, so they aren’t killed in classrooms?  Where are the marches for BLM?  Where are all the groups that cause a stir, get their pictures taken, get beaten or arrested and then disappear?  They don’t have enough power or money to KEEP GOING.  To keep the pressure on.  If we ALL worked on one issue, we might be able to stay the course.

But everyone thinks their issue is the most important one and that’s EXACTLY what the people in power encourage.  They love it when we are fractured, broken into small groups, because then they don’t have to be afraid of us.  Massive outcries, are a different story.  BOYCOTTS and a constant pressure, from huge numbers of people can make a difference.

But how to pick an issue, when people are suffering, because of ALL the terrible things that are ALLOWED to happen.  Things done on purpose, to keep us in line.  Things to keep us fearful.  Things to keep us from attacking the power structure itself.

Now our country has been purposely DIVIDED and the people responsible are NOT held accountable.  It’s just one more thing.  The republican senators, like the rapist priests, and all the rest, walk free, after the terrible things they do.  But we the people, don’t have that privilege.   More and more, the difference between the freedom of the people and the actual rights of the rich, are more and more evident.  We know who the guilty ones are and we SEE that nothing happens to them for what they do.

You only have to look at the blogs to see what the issues are.  Who is fighting for what.  All important to the people working for their rights and lives, but nothing is going to happen unless we work TOGETHER.

Divided we are minnows.  Together we are sharks.

Think about it.

If we actually CARED about the environment we could all just stop using plastic bags.  No marches, no anything.  Just REFUSE to use plastic bags and get paper or bring your own.  The issue would GO AWAY IMMEDIATELY if we ALL just stopped doing ONE SIMPLE THING.  But we bitch about things endlessly and never act as a group.  People don’t care, or don’t bother.  Not all issues cost money or take time yet they can make a HUGE DIFFERENCE, and we still don’t do anything about it as a people.  How can we bring about big changes when we can’t even ask for paper instead of plastic?

This is for Holly…

PROTECTION…a poem

text

we have to protect black lives
we have to protect women from violence
we have to protect children
we have to protect asian lives
we have to protect immigrants
we have to protect poor and hungry people
we have to protect the imprisoned
we have to protect ourselves from the police
we have to protect ourselves from our government
we have to protect animals
we have to protect the environment

WHO DON’T WE HAVE TO PROTECT
AND WHO ARE WE PROTECTING EVERYONE FROM

FROM PEOPLE WHO HATE
FROM PEOPLE WHO ARE CHRISTIAN CONSERVATIVES
FROM REPUBLICANS
FROM THE RICH
FROM THE POWERFUL
FROM THE GREEDY

FROM EACH OTHER

THIS IS REAL INSANITY

WHO AND WHAT DON’T WE HAVE TO PROTECT
OTHER THAN RICH WHITE MALES

Fire…a poem

every time
I see a beautiful picture
like this one
I hear women
screaming
as they are burned
for being
witches
by white men
who
simply wanted
their possessions

if you’re very quiet
and pay attention
maybe you can hear
them too

they’re still
screaming

From: Candy…VOTE!!!! Women gave their lives so future generations of women could vote.

VOTE…a story poem

VOTE

jailed
beaten
their hair pulled
force fed
their medication withheld
handcuffed to the bars
of their damp moldy cells
women fought
for the right to vote
the only way to properly
THANK THEM
is to
do it

VOTE

ROAD CLOSED…

Signpost, Closed, Road-Sign, End, Stop

I’m sick of
racism
sexism
agism
all the isms
all the anti’s
all the rich white males
who have been crippling others
and standing on the necks
of everyone
since the very
beginning
of governments
our government
based
on slavery
death
and the murder of
Native Americans
has put up
ROAD CLOSED
signs
that block others
from fulling their lives
their dreams
while keeping people
poor
hungry
sick
and
uneducated
for the
BENEFIT
of the elites and
it’s time
the reign of the
entitled men
ENDS
they have poisoned us
long enough
withholding food
insurance
education
housing
just because they can
minimum wage
that’s not enough to live on
while they vote their own raises
empty men
who look the other way
while women and children
are brutalized
black people are
forced into poverty
the elderly
often made to choose
between food
and medication
while the rich
get richer
and take away
CHOICES
and now
turn American troops
against the American people
and
refuse to deal
with a deadly virus
during a world wide crisis
while they watch
as people who have no work
no insurance
no money
no shelter
wait for THEM
to decide how much
MONEY
THE GREEDY GOVERNMENT
WILL DECIDE TO GIVE THEM
they are
empty
heartless
men
who are well fed
well insured
well housed
well educated
deciding the
FATE
of everyone else
and that’s
WRONG
in every way
imaginable
we are not a
HERD
we are INDIVIDUAL human beings
we are
not here to wait on them
SERVE THEM
or be controlled and manipulated
BY THEM
it’s time to
WAKE UP
minimum wage 
FOR ALL GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS
NO EXPENSE ACCOUNTS
THAT ARE NOT OVERSEEN
BY PANELS OF EVERYDAY PEOPLE
WHOSE ONLY JOB IT IS
TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE NOT
OVERSTEPPING THEIR BOUNDS
the STATUS QUO
is destroying us
and in case you haven’t noticed
our government
is killing us

 

POLITICS…

I turned the news on.  Big mistake.  I had to turn it off right away because Larry Kudlow was on and all I heard him say was…they (republicans) want to REWARD people for…  OMG!  That’s when I thought I was going to start freaking out.  As if unemployed, uninsured, people who have no money, food, rent money, SHOULD BE CONTROLLED BY AN ICKY RICH WHITE MAN, who feels that HE and the republicans, can withhold money, or REWARD people who do what they want them to do.

Seriously, it is WRONG to have elite, well fed, well sheltered, insured, rich, ugly* white males, making decisions about those who are in desperate need.  While they are fighting among themselves, people are in crisis.

This is the most hateful situation.  It makes me absolutely sick.  AND WHO GETS TO DECIDE ANYTHING FOR THE UGLY WHITE, RICH MALES, WHO ARE WITHHOLDING MONEY FROM OTHERS.  NO ONE, THAT’S WHO.  They vote their own raises and only work when they aren’t on vacation.  

NO ONE SHOULD HAVE THE POWER TO STARVE PEOPLE AND WITHHOLD RESOURCES THAT WOULD KEEP PEOPLE SHELTERED AND HEALTHY.

*Ugly…the way they lord over others and think they have the RIGHT to decide who gets to eat and who doesn’t.  UGLY!

 

Okay, so…

I was watching something on tv last night and there was a “servant” on the program.  She was wearing a neat, dove gray uniform…and I thought, the reason for all the uniforms, in the world, including those in Downton Abbey, is because if the “servants,” weren’t wearing them, they might be mistaken for the rich people who lived there.  Without the uniforms, everyone looks alike and we all know, we can’t have that now, can we.
