Dear President Barack Obama and Congress:

With all due respect President Barack Obama we demand that you mandate fixing of educational standards and end the educational money-pit,  encourage the formation of a Black Defense League. prompt the Department of Justice to look into the 11% of cases of inmates they have said shouldn’t be incarcerated, investigate and reverse every racially biased law, revamp America’s legal sand prison system and give reparations to slave descendants that only applies to the 1st two years of college.

We also request that you revive the truth in advertising laws, stop the advertising of drugs and alcohol on television and cable, stop the advertising of adult and sexual themes on children’s networks, stop using war and conflicts as a jobs bills, stop giving South America and drug cartels 200 billion per year, stop giving all other countries billions of dollars yearly to be our ally, pull our troops out of 162 countries, close the border and regulate it, reform immigration policies, and change US foreign policy.

We implore Congress incentivize corporations to build in Africa not take its natural resources, decrease the importance of the Stock Market, end Matching Funds, reform election rules (including those of broadcast stations), float the idea of creating multiple viable political parties, stop drilling for oil off the coast, let Detroit automakers go bankrupt, mandate females to register for selective service, pull embassies out of countries that don’t like us, stop building nations and reallocate forces to rebuild bridges, roads and schools in America.

We request that you ensure that All laws are equal, stop absurd differing age regulations due to state, end baseball antitrust exemption, leave Cuba alone, stop funding Mexican drug cartels, tax companies that outsource, change the tax code, require that all companies that do business in America pay a minimum wage to workers in other countries, legalize marijuana, ban guns (which contrary to popular belief is entirely possible and legal), reduce the size of the military, ban lobbying and encourage companies to release the cures for human conditions instead of merely maintaining conditions for profit.

Yes the president isn’t God an the Government can’t do everything for us. Most of these things listed were allowed and pushed by president and government, so this is were we Americans begin negotiations. Of course we could keep slowly rolling along with the same movements, but we are in unprecedented territory and now is the time for us to be unprecedented! We have to let go of of the old, the outdated, anything else is unacceptable.

This Cleveland bus incident, where the bus driver uppercuts a woman has been played and replayed in all of it’s entertainment value glory. What has been lost in all of this is the discussion. I have been hit while driving. I mean slapped, punched, steering wheel grabbed and I felt that she was really trying to kill me…us. So I know how Chris Brown felt and how this bus driver may have felt. Without passing judgement on the bus rider for spitting and hitting or on the bus driver for his rising dragon punch, what is the real issue…

Why did it take getting hit for this woman to realize that she can’t hit?

Why after 22 years of taking similar punishment from passengers did the bus driver react in this manner?

The Full Story

This is not uncommon nor an isolated incident, why? Because our society allows women to get away with hitting. Women carry the banner of “the weaker sex”, when nothing could be further from the truth. We already know who hits more…women, yet every woman is sugar, spice and everything nice and every man is a potential villain. What that approach has done is cultivate a culture of violence and victimization. Now all of a sudden he’s head butting her, choking her, hitting her…all of a sudden and she hasn’t done anything, she isn’t violent at all and she isn’t teaching these very same methods to the children, no not at all. We have become a society inequity, a society of  one law and two different rules, two different standards, which is probably why our foreign policy is one of a bully who speaks of victimization.

When the authorities respond to a domestic violence dispute and, in general, do nothing to the hitter, but remove the hitee what does that do to a child seeing it? How does that ultimately shape their view of society, their view of relationships?

You look at this cartoon and think he had it coming?
He must have said something.
That isn’t you, but deep now you know it is.
You have a problem and so does America.

What has this dual standard done to children, who have internalized these types of behaviors? It has made them adults who are violent, made them adults who hit, Adults who fear no repercussions. It has made the ledger unbalanced and therefore unequal. It has made males feel at times caged and constantly under pressure from society and in their relationship. It has breed a culture for men, that says being hit is normal. A culture that says if you are a male you should expect to get hit.

Are men violent? Men are not violent, which is contrary to what those with an agenda, and many a female blogger might say. However, males can be made to be violent. Here is an all too common example: A young man beats his girl for slapping him and we all get down on him trash him and cuddle her and everybody else that he’s ever been with. Now,here is the what you didn’t see. That young man grew up with a mother that hit. She hit his father and she all the other dudes after the father left. She hit his brother. She hit him. She allowed female cousins to hit him. As he got older he was a relationships where he was hit. The authorities who grabbed him hit him. For his part, this young adolescent, he has to take the hits because she is the weaker sex and speaking out makes him weak, speaking out makes him a punk. Expressing his emotions is something that just isn’t done, because it scares people, which is why the authorities were called in the first place, so he learned that lesson.

One day this young man’s woman decides that he didn’t answer a question correctly, or she isn’t getting enough attention, or whatever the case may be and she decides to test him by hitting him and he goes off on her. We all know the story “I just touched him and he went off.” Guess what your ‘touch’ was hit number 3,476 and that was the one that set him off. That was the one that he could take. That was his societal rebel yell. What society sees is the what came after. We see the elephant rampage. We witness the killer whale attack. We don’t see the role we played in the action. What would have happened if didn’t condone hitting in our society?  You can not give one group carte blanche to assault and hit with virtual impunity, while the companion group has to absorb all of it.

Why has society allowed women to be violent? Perhaps it has to do with men not wanting to look at our mothers as being anything but nurturers or since women represent the best of us, men don’t want to show the rest of the world that the word best’ may have been misused.  Most women who hit, do so because they can.

It’s not okay, it’s not. I tell my daughters just like I tell my son, “no one should hit”, but more importantly than telling them…I show them.

Mothers stop hitting.

Girlfriends stop hitting.

Everyone stop hitting… Hugs go a lot further.

We have the biggest best military,

We have the smartest people,

we are dropping bombs,

using troops,

laws,

sanctions,

aircraft carriers,

x-rays,

body scanners,

pat-downs,

we have all these cameras and  computers, but no matter what we do, it seems like bad

things are supposed to happen.

We headline all the bad things and bury the good ones.

We focus on war, violence and the mistreatment of others.

We keep spending and spending,

We burn with hate, live in terror and spread fear

–that can’t be right

–that can’t be right

—it just can’t be.

Somebody somewhere throws a rock and it changes the lives of everyone, that’s crazy.

And by bad things, I am not just talking about war and terror.

Whether you believe in evil or light and dark forces or not,

you have to admit that a lot of things that happen seems senseless.

It seems, that every time someone give into vices, it is somehow connected to something larger

something that pushes us towards an avoidable end.

Towards happenings that had to happen and couldn’t have happened any other way.

It’s just too easy to do the wrong thing.

I guess that’s how you know that it’s wrong.

Is this the way thing are supposed to be?

Are we already in hell?

Deaf ears, and blind eyes makes one complicit.

It was ’92 when the riots jumped off, they had a National Guard troop on every corner.

That was when I first became interested in the military.

That and the fact that I needed money so I enlisted in the Navy.

I was in the middle of the nothing serving my country when September 11th happened,

it was as if I was being attacked.

I reenlisted and since we were undermanned I was promoted to officer quickly,

but millions have been killed, markets have collapsed, countries have been occupied,

everybody is scared, and we have launched attacks into several other countries

to kill one 6’4″ diabetic Arabic man who was in a cave somewhere.

He always seems to have a charged video camera.

You know how many Americans after the attacks happened went about their business

and just had A Bowl of Corn Flakes?

We are confronted with the undeniable truth that conservatism has and is failing America. The “George W. Bush” administration had it’s time to lead, and it failed. It’s long past time for the country—in particular older people—to embrace the “hope and change” heralded with the arrival of Barack Obama, as the youth have clearly done. Before Barack Obama was elected he not only promised change he promised to remake the world. Obama promised health care. Obama delivered on that promise. Obama promised to allow gays to serve openly in the military by repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”. Obama delivered on that promise. Obama promised to fight terror. Obama has not only delivered on that promise, but he showed true leadership by ordering the assassination of Osama Bin Laden and Al Awlaki. Obama promised to remove American fighting troops from Iraq. Again, Obama delivered on that promise. On every promise that didn’t heavily involve congress Barack Obama delivered. The Obama bashers insist that he has done nothing since being in office. If that is the case why would anyone need to repeal or take their country back. The mental salve needed to understand these statements is laughable, but the sound bites make for good narrative.

The “Bush Doctrine” was a failure. George W. Bush currently has the lowest approval rating in the history of a living President. Without saying so the American people have rejected the neo-conservative philosophy and policies represented by the Bush/Cheney/Rove administration (All white men). Conservatives have read the reports. They have seen the writing on the wall. Caucasians will soon be a minority. So they have doubled-down on stupid and diversified what White Supremacy looks and sounds like. Sure there are non-whites running around proporting the same racially code worded non-sense, but that is only to curry favor with the whites and a completely different psychological issues, one that the recently Supreme Court approved Affordable Healthcare plan will soon help them address.  The 3-strikes laws was said to not be racist, but it disproportionately affects black and brown minorities. The stats and figures all bear this out, a wink to white supremacy. No affirmative action rules, another wink to white supremacy. The Tea Party itself grew out of latent racism, many winks to white supremacy.

I can already hear them typing away saying that MG is making this racial, President Obama is half white. Really? We all make choices, some have embraced and internalized the tenets of White Supremacy, some look the other way and live their lives and there are others who shine a light on the cracks in order for us to have a better society. A position that was job of the NEWS, long ago when they served the public by informing them. Barack Obama had a white mother, grew up in a white home, so tell me how could he possibly relate to the average black person? Barack made black oriented choices for his destiny. He married Michelle, who is a descendant of a fully black slave. A woman he loves and with whom he had children with, thereby blackening his family’s line. It is primarily Barack Obama’s presence outside of sports and hip-hop that his staunchest supporters hate. He even draws the ire of black commentators, who constantly try to curry favor with networks and the masses, but fail to realize that Barack presence has increased their network viability ten-fold. They should be thanking Barack for running, winning and not sitting still, after all he does give them things to blather on about. This, and Clint Eastwood talking to s chair, is what happens when reasonable minds surrender the stage to charletons.

Then there are those whom our system doesn’t work for when they are losing, the Republicans. The Republicans are using Mitt Romney to gain power and cloud minds, yet they don’t like him, they don’t even trust him, furthermore he has streaks. The Republicans have to put out a candidate to get three billion of your tax dollars, through Matching Funds. These political parties put out a candidate, even when they know they can’t win…see the 2008 election. When what the public, through congress, should be asking why is the US militarily pushing further into Asia? If American foreign policies are correct why pay countries to not protest them? Why is the US selling  fighter jets to Taiwan? Why does the US have troops in 159 countries? Why have embassies in countries that don’t want us there? Why is the US spending 200 million in South America to run guns, drugs and cartel support, but instead of our media investigating and posing these questions we are presented with disingenuous polls on ‘which candidate treats their dog better?’  The Republicans knew the economy was going to be broken for an extended period of time and they didn’t want to be at the heart of that crap storm, just look at Europe. They assisted the Democrats in taking control of the government, to fix it. Once that is completely they will put forth real candidates for the prosperity era. This is how it is, this is how it is done. they talk of “Freedom” as if these white conservatives know anything about being oppressed. Try asking them that on Meet the Press, everything else is filler and rhetoric and the rhetoric is simply fear.

When the superstorm Sandy pounded the East Coast, President Obama toured the situation with Governor Chris Christie. The President freed up funds and cleared red tap and Governor Christie praised his efforts. Many in the republican party came out against Christie for praising the President, even though Christie was urged to run for president, but he declined. Any credit that the president deserves is always couched by negativity and racism. An AP study actually shows that racism towards blacks has increased to 51% of Americans now express explicit anti-black attitudes, since Barack Obama has been in office, so how much of this criticism of the President is actually racism? Neither liberals, nor conservatives are not destroying the country, the truth is that humans are failing humanity. Being liberal or conservative  is not a bad thing, but it is never good when it is financially or racially motivated. It’s time to accept that the era of White Supremacy is coming to an end. Conservatism, which is White Supremacy, has failed. And America–thankfully–is distributing more power to minorities, gays, liberals, and women. “Minorities” don’t like being minorities, so it must be terrifying for those in the dominate culture to slowly see their race becoming a minority one. Conservatives know that they have lost and are now attempting only to slow down the process and softening the landing. Whites folks, you don’t have to like it, but you should accept it.
