Beauty…

beauty isn’t the only thing
in the eye of the beholder
EVERYTHING
is in the eye of the beholder
you do see the problem
with that
don’t you

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?

Jordan…women…life

A lot of people said that Jordan wasn’t like “other” girls.  They were wrong.  A lot of “girls” were simply afraid to be like Jordan, that’s all.  The pressure to conform is so punishing, that many females decide just to submit. It won’t protect them, but they think it will.

One has to follow the rules in their hearts.  Not everyone wants to be a rock start.  Seems as if a lot of women want to pose and look weird, in pictures on free sites people can use for their blogs, but that’s their business and the rules they follow, I guess.

The point is, we should be able to be who we are.  Free, wild things, rocking or  doing street art or anything else.  The RESTRICTIONS that BIND, CONTROL and KILL US, because of male dominance, destroy ALL OF OUR LIVES.

I’ve been reading all the things women do to NOT BE NOTICED, out of fear.  FEAR, FEAR, FEAR.  MEN TERRIFY WOMEN EVERYDAY IN EVERY WAY.  How is that a way to live?

It’s not.  Not at all.

There’s a fabulous new movie on NETFLIX, called MOXIE.  I loved it.  My daughter called and said, “It’s driving me crazy because when we did things like that, people stayed AWAY from us because they were afraid.  Where was all the support those girls got in the movie?”
She was right, but we did it anyway.

Males make the world an ugly and dangerous place. Think about the women demonstrating in front of college dorms, carrying mattresses, to try and get people to understand how many of them are raped/gang raped. and to STOP IT FROM HAPPENING.

Think about it and STOP MAKING EXCUSES FOR MALE BEHAVIOR.  Your daughters are coming home, dropping out and not saying anything. So many females drop out and never say why.

The lists of things women HAVE TO DO to try and stay safe everywhere they go is sickening.  How many men have to text saying:  TEXT/CALL ME THE MINUTE YOU GET HOME.  A friend of mine gets up every morning and talks to me the entire time I walk, so she knows that I’m okay and no one is bothering me, or running over me.  EVERY SINGLE DAY.  THE WHOLE TIME I WALK.  So she knows I’m safe.  How many men have to do that?

Men need to stop other men from hurting us.  We can’t stop them.  Not unless the law changes and states that we can kill them and walk away.  But, oh, wait, women who kill men who have been beating them for YEARS, get life in prison.  Men who MURDER THEIR WIVES are out in six months.  So, never mind.  It would be nice if women could make their own laws, but we have to live with the ones men make to protect themselves and do whatever they want to do…to us.

Men can’t understand what it’s like to live the way we do.  They can never “get it.”  Unless, they go to jail.  Then some of them get it.  They should all have to spend time there…say six months.  Maybe they would understand then.  Maybe not.  It couldn’t hurt to try it.

And for the men who have daughters they actually love, or care about…think of the dangerous world SHE lives in, because of all of you.

White and Black Long Fur Cat

“Now I can breath easier.  There’s a new sheriff in town and we are no longer in an abusive relationship we couldn’t run from.  The whole country, except for republicans, is lighter and full of hope.  It’s a good day for my kittens.  It’s a good day for the world.”
