Black Lives Matter Chicago and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“This is a terrible thing. I’ve been in many demonstrations all across the South, but I can say that I have never seen—even in Mississippi and Alabama—mobs as hostile and as hate-filled as I’ve seen here in Chicago.” —Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Sadness and shock run through me in reading this article. To think that in the year 2017 there is so much hate and violence plaguing this great city–in our great America! I am all for Freedom Of Speech when it is nonviolent–but when it gets to people being physically violent and brutally savage with words and actions–lock them up and send them to Hell! Fuck yes Black Lives Matter but not at cost to destruction of human life and properties! Not with words so harsh and hurtful that they emotionally assassinate a God given life! If Martin Luther Kind Jr. were alive today, would this violence be going on? How would he respond? MLKJr. was a man who believed in people and equality, and PEACE. How can there be so much of the opposite after all he said and did to advocate his dreams? How did we go from peaceful demonstrations and rallies to such hate-filled assaults and disorder?! I pray for Peace. This is my Dream.

Life As I Didn’t Know It

It is no secret that I have my ups and downs. Life is totally against me! Or is it? One thing that keeps me going — besides my faith — is that I have an open mind and try to see different perspectives. I might think I can read people’s minds, but in reality I know that I cannot. I don’t know the other person’s story or reasoning for his/her beliefs. This is tough because sometimes I just want to be angry toward everybody in the world without knowing what really is going on behind the scenes. I’ve experienced a lot of difficulties in my life. Multiple types of abuses, by a number of different people; rape; homelessness; stalking. If I could make a list, I am sure there would be more negative experiences than positive. Then again, it is a matter of perspective.  So to account for that I would need to make an addition to the list to view each negative as a positive. I try to always do that. I don’t always want to.  Sometimes stress can be so overwhelming that I feel like I just don’t care, that nobody cares — that some say they do, but I’ll feel that it’s just an act and they really don’t. Despite my occasional lack of faith in myself, I do realize that I am somebody important. That even without having financial income, I am successful. I am somebody and I can be somebody more! All I need to do is give myself a chance.

Missing you.

I have been neglecting this blog and all of my readers, and I am sorry for that. I really have been thinking of you! Actually, for quite some time I was locked out of my account due to a new phone and 2-Step Authentication. I had backup codes but couldn’t find them. Finally I emailed WordPress with the details and proof of my identity and got things fixed. So I’m back! You don’t know how good it feels to have access to this blog again! Besides sharing interesting things and tidbits about my life, my Klout and EmpireKred scores have been suffering. LOL.

A lot has obviously happened since the last I posted. I am tired and won’t go in to everything now. I would like to say, however, that I remember how it was to be homeless. My heart goes out to those facing that situation. I help how I can, when I can, but it is not enough. I sometimes stand out among people on the CTA because I will smile and interact with homeless people riding the transit with me. There are times when others might move to another section of the bus or actually unboard the bus to wait for the next one on the same route–simply because the homeless individual was social. That being even when the homeless person did NOT have a traumatic scent. Just because of…being nice. 😦

 

Woman flashes judge during bond hearing

[van id=”van/ns-acc/2015/08/20/SE-021TH_CNNA-ST1-1000000002dc8b68″]

BROWARD COUNTY, Flor. — A woman was having her day in court when she displayed exhibit-A and exhibit-B.

Susan Surrette was in court in Broward County, Florida, for disorderly intoxication, when she flashed her breasts at the judge.

During a conversation with Judge John Hurley, Surrette said she was a hair dresser and had another job.

“You’re also what,” asked Hurley.

“Kayla Kupcakes.  I’m an escort too,” answered Surrette.

Surrette calls herself Kayla Kupckakes on her website, which advertises her as a porn star, an escort, and a private dancer.

Back in court, Surrette complained about being mistreated by police.

She pointed to several parts of her body before she lifted up her shirt and exposed her bare breasts.

“Oh my lord,” said Judge Hurley before he set her bond.

Man gets invited to stranger’s bachelor party by mistake — but he’s going anyways

Bachelor

SEATTLE — In a couple of weeks, Joey DiJulio is flying across the country for a bachelor party. Good times with old buds, right? Not exactly.

Joey doesn’t know who’s attending the party. In fact, he’s never even met the groom.

No, it’s not the plot of a new Vince Vaughn movie or a remake of the old Tom Hanks movie. Joey is flying from Seattle to Philadelphia to attend the bachelor party of Jeff Minetti, a man he’s never met, has no connection to and only spoken to twice via email.

How it happened

On Feb. 11, Joey received an email from an email address he didn’t recognize. The email thread began:

People,

Has anyone else noticed now that Jeff has been rocking the beard for a while – he looks like a middle aged Pavarotti? At times, he also has ventured into a bit of hipster phase. In…
