Clover…broken heart

First, let me apologize for the poor artwork.  I ran out of paper and this watercolor paper is terrible.

Clover’s heart is broken.  He’s been thinking of all the unloved and lonely dogs left outside alone in winter, all the time, really, but especially in winter.  No warm beds, or soft caresses during the night.  Some have frozen water, and frozen food.  Once he saw the pictures on television, and heard the stories, he started howling.  The chicklets and warming bunnies are doing their best to help him, but he can’t understand the cruelty that lives within the human heart.

He said he would like to make the owners live outside, alone, with nothing, maybe a wooden bare house, maybe not.  Some dogs are chained.   He said his heart is truly broken and cannot be put back together.

The chicklets offered to set up a rescue mission, but he said they won’t be able to save all of the dogs who are suffering.  Some have arthritis, some have never known kindness, or love.  He seems inconsolable, and the chicklets don’t know what to do.   AND THEY CAN’T ESCAPE…THEY ARE PRISONERS WHO ARE TORTURED EVERY SINGLE DAY UNTIL THEY DIE.

The chicklets, as sweet and loving as the are, do not forgive, or forget.  They think those things encourage repeat behavior.  All the animals who suffer in Factory Farm and at the hands of human, are things that can never be forgiven, or forgotten.  There are no excuses.  None at all.  They are slaughtered, eaten, starved, debeaked, tortured and murdered.  And now Clover is sad because of his species.

Cover didn’t understand the hatred and evil that lives inside some human hearts.  Now he knows, and his heart is broken for all the dogs who have nothing and are tortured minute to minute, by thoughtless and ugly humans.  He said he would bite all the people, if he could, and chain them to a tree.  He would give them frozen water and let them lick it.  He said the world is not longer beautiful.

I can relate to Clover.  My heart is filled with rage and thoughts of revenge for all of the helpless animals who suffer and die without ever knowing kindness.  Cruelty to animals, women and children, people of color and those who are different, continue unabated.  I have been taught by examples, that this place is hell, and even the fluffy balls of chicklet love, know that.  Human trafficking constant fear, child abuse, it’s all the same thing. All done to those who are helpless…those with no voice, no choice.

What a pathetic species we are.  Other animals set wonderful examples for us…examples we ignore. I’m sick about the dogs left outside.  Misery and suffering never ends.

HOPELESS is an deadly word and an ugly thing.  Dogs with no hope.  I am really empty right now.  All I can see is death of spirit, and hope.  Suffering everywhere.  So ugly.  Poor souls and the ugly people who torture and disregard their feelings.  Such a terrible place.

Okay, so…

Here’s what happened:  My granddaughter and her boyfriend, had a couple friends from the Chicago suburbs, down to stay with them for a few days.  They went boating and did a lot of fun things.  My granddaughter and her boyfriend have tattoos and he has his hair braided.

My granddaughter and her boyfriend are currently living in a sweet apartment in downstate Illinois, where they were, until May, both in college.  She just graduated.  He’s is still in school,

Anyway, as I said, they were having fun and decided to go golfing, which her boyfriend does up here.  They rented two golf carts.  My granddaughter and her boyfriend are white, their friends are not.  One of the golf carts hit a pothole on the course, and broke.

A woman who saw it happen, sneered at them, and called someone.  The golf people came and took one look at them and separated them, asking them all kinds of inappropriate questions, blaming them for breaking the cart on purpose.

Those people kept telling their African American friend to calm down, when he wasn’t doing, or saying, anything at all. (she has that on a video).  They were very threatening toward him and asking him if he wanted them to call the police, to which he said, “Yes, call them and stop speaking to me as if I’m uneducated.  I’m not.”

My granddaughter told them that if they didn’t look the way they did, they would have apologized, given them a new golf cart, and let them go on their way.

They kept telling the kids that the guy who was older, overweight, and questioning them, had had three strokes, as if it would be THEIR fault if he got upset and dropped dead.  Why was he there? WHO WAS HE?

They told the kids that they would have to pay for the damages to the cart and the kids said they wouldn’t, since the grounds were not kept in proper condition and it wasn’t THEIR FAULT.  The people questioning them wouldn’t even look at the pothole.

Those racist and hateful people would not stop harassing them, so my granddaughter’s boyfriend called his mother and told her to get their lawyer.  The people were nicer to them after that.

The fact that the golf people kept telling their friend to CALM DOWN, when he is one of the most quiet people around, goes to show how hateful and violent people can be.  They kept pushing him, doing their best to get him to act out.  He didn’t go for it.  She also said they talked to him as if he were a two year old.

I was so furious, when she was telling me what happened, I wanted to go down there and…well, let’s just say that I was angry and I still am.

A lot of people downstate don’t like people from Chicago.  They don’t like people who are different than they are.  The thing is…I can’t tell you HOW GRATEFUL I AM THAT WE ARE DIFFERENT THAN THEY ARE.  Because we can talk all we want to about all of us all being one, but in reality, WE ARE NOT ONE.  We aren’t anything alike.

All of us will never will be ONE.  Not unless another meteor hits the earth and the three survivors have to put up with each other in order to stay alive.  Once that’s over with, I’m sure they would go their separate ways and never see each other again.

We aren’t all alikeWe never will all be alike.  We’re taught to be different by our culture, circumstances and environment and those lessons make all the difference in the world.

Horrible things happen in Chicago.  Horrible things happen everywhere, but this one incident shows the small mindedness of people.  A good friend of mine lives there and she would agree.  She hates a lot of what goes on in that small town.  On the other hand, when my granddaughter was waitressing, between classes, she met some wonderful women, who had each other’s backs.  Nothing is usually all good or bad.  But we are all DIFFERENT, and wherever we go, we seek out people we recognize as members of our tribe.  We have to face the fact that there will always be them and us.  If we don’t recognize that, we won’t be able to move forward, we’ll just keep pretending.  There is no talking about issues, when the issues are as big as they are.

We are TRAINED to be different from each other.  And that’s exactly what we are.

 

 

Okay, so…

Here’s the thing.  Women often write that they aren’t feminists because they don’t hate men.  Or that feminists do hate men.  When women talk about equality, or their rights, or what’s being done to them, apparently that means they hate men.

All I have to say to that is:  What the fuck!

MEN THREATEN, BEAT, RAPE AND KILL WOMEN every single day.  MEN SAY TERRIBLE AND HORRIBLE THINGS ABOUT, AND TO, WOMEN EVERY SINGLE DAY.  THEY HOARD POWER, KEEP US DEPENDENT AND POOR.  THEY WRITE THE LAWS AND  ENFORCE THE LAWS IN WHICH WE HAVE NO VOICE, FOR THEIR OWN BENEFIT, EVEN WHEN THE LAWS ARE ABOUT WOMENS LIVES AND BODIES.  THEY TAKE AWAY OUR POWER. THEY DON’T PAY CHILD SUPPORT.  THEY STEAL OUR IDEAS AND UNDERPAY WOMEN.  LAWS HAD TO BE WRITTN TO STOP SEXUAL HARASSMENT IN THE WORK PLACE BECAUSE THEY COULDN’T KEEP THEIR HANDS AND WORDS TO THEMSELVES.  AND THEY BLAME US FOR WHAT THEY DO TO US.

BUT I HAVE NEVER, IN MY ENTIRE LIFE, HEARD A WOMAN SAY THAT BECAUSE OF WHAT THEY DO…MEN HATE WOMEN.

That’s brainwashing at it’s best.  Everything in our society tries to turn women into the protectors and supporters of MEN, no matter what men do to women.  It’s disgusting.  AND IT’S INSANE.

TELL ME AGAIN WHAT WOMEN DO TO MEN THAT MAKES YOU THINK THAT WE ARE THE ONES WHO HATE THEM?

a short story about america…

“How many died today?” asked the tech.

“Fourteen, but three more are hanging on by a thread,” said the doctor.  “It’s touch and go. All but two were teens.”

“How many more have to die because of them?”

“As many as they can kill, I guess,” sighed the doctor.  “They don’t care.  It doesn’t touch them in any way.”

“What are we going to do about it?”

“I don’t know.  Three of my colleagues are already in jail for helping people.”

“It’s wrong.”

“Yes.  It is.”

“We can’t let this continue.”

“What do you suggest?”

“An underground railroad.”

“I’m listening,” said the doctor.

“Women and children come to us for help and we get them over the boarder to Canada,  We set up a network to receive them on that side and care for them there.  If they want to stay, that would be up to the Canadian government.”

“I like it.”

“You do?”

“Yes,” said the doctor.  “Start setting it up.”

 

And that’s how the hateful, disgusting, murderous, sexist pig, insane, woman hating american government was unable to keep killing women.  Many women fled the states and, as the country fell deeper and deeper into madness, the rest of the world attacked, to save themselves and everything that lived, from the killing machine that was the american government.  The american government not only started wars all over the world, THEY STARTED WAR AGAINST THEIR OWN PEOPLE, BEGINNING WITH WOMEN.

Americans fought with other countries against their own government in the hope to bring the country back to sanity and cut out the moral decay of it’s leaders.  It’s not over yet.

 

Horrifying how much men hate women…and their fear and hatred leads to death and misery but they don’t care as long as they believe they can control us…

The thing is wealthy women can get safe abortions, the ones married to the men who vote against them.  They can always fly to France or any other more enlightened and less hatefully sexist countries and have a mini vacation and get things taken care of.  It’s poor women and teenagers who suffer and often die because of UGLY, hateful men who despise them.

This quote is from my friend Candy.  Thanks dear friend.  Sisterhood rocks.

What’s going on?

 

PBS has an hour long program called, “Documenting Hate: The new American Nazi.”  I’m sure it’s an informative and very important program.  I’m not watching it.  I think it’s wrong to give the haters air time.  They don’t deserve attention from anyone but the cops or those who can shut them down.

It’s been many, many, years since I demonstrated against the nazis.  Two kids were arrested for throwing eggs at them. That was what almost started a riot.

Afterward, with all the cops, on foot and on horses, trying to keep the bad guys safe, I decided the nazi’s didn’t deserve any attention at all.  I think that’s what we should do with hate groups, never mention, or acknowledge, them.  Let the undercover cops, or whoever can take them out, just do it and not give them any press at all.  No pictures, no interviews, nothing at all.  If the cops shut them down, they should get medals and raises.

For a long time I thought earth was a prison.  I’m starting to think it’s an insane asylum, or some kind of hell mouth, and I don’t even believe in hell.  Whatever this place is, hate and the people who do it, seem to be coming out of the sewers.  I don’t think there ever were rats and alligators in the sewers, just hateful people.  Rats and alligators deserve better accommodations.  No one should have to share space with those guys.

I just watched this…I want to lay on the floor and never get up again. I’m absolutely HORRIFIED by who and what we are. I actually covered my face with my hands and didn’t even know I was doing it because white people are so UGLY that I couldn’t even look at them. This was so hard to watch. We are cruel beyond belief. Really there’s absolutely no end to the violent things we will do to each other. I’m a huge fan of Malcolm X and James Baldwin and seeing Evers dead in his driveway…the cops beating innocent people, I just really despise what we are…cruel, hateful, racist, sexist, just mean and DEADLY. Ask the Native Americans if this is anything new. I don’t even know where to start, what to do. I’m am FURIOUS! I remember where I was standing when I heard MLK Jr was killed. I said, “WHAT DID HE EXPECT IN THIS RACIST COUNTRY THAT DOESN’T ALLOW THE TRUTH TO BE TOLD!” They had to murder him because too many people were listening to him. That’s what our government does. EVERY SINGLE PERSON SHOULD WATCH THIS MOVIE AND FACE WHAT WE NEVER STOP DOING TO EACH OTHER! ARGGGGGGGG! I guess hell is relative, if you’re the one being beaten to death, just for being alive, by a cop, then it’s hell for you but not for the cop. We need to wake up NOW. POWER AND GREED, HATE AND HORROR. THAT’S WHAT WE ARE.

This should be horrifying to everyone…Deb just sent it. Schools having to take down posters that show diversity…read it and act. The students are fighting back, since they have more brains than all the government officials put together.
