Bored

 

 

by Jim Rousch

Don’t call me oppressed right now. I’m fucking bored, because I’m in a motel room with nothing to do.

The least someone could do is mail me a book of matches and a gallon of gasoline, but the problem with that plan is that everyone will know who did that, so there’s point in doing something that stupid. Hence, I just have to ride this one out.

I didn’t do well in the class I was in-except for the last week. I knew it was that mood stabilizer the very moment I finished three weeks in one. I also knew that was the problem when I returned to normal. All I knew was that I couldn’t do my research-and it annoyed the hell out of me, because I didn’t feel like myself.

The wrong medication in a damaged brain like mine spells a fabulous disaster, but on the other hand, my psychiatrist told me that over 99 % of babies who acquire meningitis don’t make it to grad school-and I wonder if that is because they aren’t pushed, like I was.

At least I know I’m bored.

Don’t Fuck With Those Frontals, I’m Begging Ya!

There are a lot of people who make bad decisions, and often when there’s less than no time to think about that probable consequences will be.

Hello, prefrontal cortex, you snot-slurped asshole.

Many people who live with traumatic brain injury face this challenge every day in the hope that they don’t get into an argument with an idiot, only to be arrested for manslaughter, because he got tired of dealing with someone’s bullshit and pushed the other guy into an oncoming city bus-which only make things worse.

I mean, nobody really wants to do that, but there are some people who:

a) ask for it

b) don’t believe you’ll do it

The next thing one realises, the one who was pissed can’t believe what he or she just did!  However, the person that once was was warned about the consequences.  What seems to spectators as a deliberate act truly wasn’t, because the person who pushed you was on the receiving end of an equal and opposite reaction-and now, traffic is a nightmare because the coroner has to scrape your remains as best they can off the street.

Study the case of Phineas Gage, a railroad foreman who experienced a blast which sent a tamping iron-43 inches long, 1 1/4 inches in diameter, and weighing 13 1/4 pounds through his left cheek, slashed his brain, and rocketed skyward, landing several feet behind him, according to smithsonian.com.

He was never the same after this, as his friends said that he was “no longer Gage,” as Dr. John Harlow accounted.

Gage lost his balance between his common sense and his self-control, or as Paul the Apostle wrote in Romans 7:15-20: “I do not understand what I do.  For what I want to do I do I do not do, but what I hate I do.  And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good.  As it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me.  For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature.  For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.  For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil the evil I do not want to do-this I keep on doing.  Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.”


Here’s the funny part: those who kicked me out of the church last year are Republicans who espouse the doctrine of personal responsibility.  However, where was Paul’s sense of personal responsibility?


As George Carlin said: “Someone’s losing fucking ground.”

It might be best for Americans to stop judging people who have the tendency to hit someone in the mouth with a chair.  After all, no one starts life that way and there are people who know the particular person’s weakness and exploit it in the hope that such a person will arrested on a assault charge.

Have you ever heard of entrapment?  As Dirty Harry used to say: “A man has got to know his limitations.”

My advice is for instigators to not start anything to begin with, as someone’s fuse is shorter than another-and all because of traumatic brain injury.  If you’re going to a soldier a free pass, you have to do the same for someone else-even when you’re dealing with someone who wasn’t stupid enough to drive over a roadside bomb during a quagmire in which we had no business involving ourselves.

Don’t fuck with the frontals, I’m begging ya!

Savvy?

My Axe, My Homework, and My Physical Struggle

 

 

 

 

 

 

Getting my Fender back in business is one thing that I wanted to accomplish over this break.   However, I still had to finish an assignment in Psychology 630, which is Physiological Psychology, which I did.

Like I’m really going to leave the axe in my car?  Yeah, I took it in the computer room with me!

 
I’m going to play as soon as I get to the Peavey amplifier so that I can work on my dexterity.
Plug it in and annoy everyone with thrash metal and black metal compositions of my own-not that I’m the greatest at it.  However, it does help my with my physical rehabilitation, because the fingers on my left hand are shaking like the Sylmar, California earthquake of 1971.

This isn’t fun, but I try to ignore it, which is what anyone who struggles with a disabilities should do-work around the damn thing.

My fingers struggle and I have to be out of here by 5 p.m., so I think I that, due to the restriction of time, I will have to finish this for now.

You Call Yourself A Republican? Heed This One’s Advice, Or Shut the Fuck Up!

 

 

 

 

 

Springfield, Ills, April 6, 1859

Messrs. Henry L. Pierce, & others.

Gentlemen

Your kind note inviting me to attend a Festival in Boston, on the 13th. Inst. in honor of the birth-day of Thomas Jefferson, was duly received. My engagements are such that I can not attend.

Bearing in mind that about seventy years ago, two great political parties were first formed in this country, that Thomas Jefferson was the head of one of them, and Boston the head-quarters of the other, it is both curious and interesting that those supposed to descend politically from the party opposed to Jefferson should now be celebrating his birthday in their own original seat of empire, while those claiming political descent from him have nearly ceased to breathe his name everywhere.

Remembering too, that the Jefferson party were formed upon its supposed superior devotion to the personal rights of men, holding the rights of property to be secondary only, and greatly inferior, and then assuming that the so-called democracy of to-day, are the Jefferson, and their opponents, the anti-Jefferson parties, it will be equally interesting to note how completely the two have changed hands as to the principle upon which they were originally supposed to be divided.

The democracy of to-day hold the liberty of one man to be absolutely nothing, when in conflict with another man’s right of property. Republicans, on the contrary, are for both the man and the dollar; but in cases of conflict, the man before the dollar.

I remember once being much amused at seeing two partially intoxicated men engage in a fight with their great-coats on, which fight, after a long, and rather harmless contest, ended in each having fought himself out of his own coat, and into that of the other. If the two leading parties of this day are really identical with the two in the days of Jefferson and Adams, they have performed the same feat as the two drunken men.

But soberly, it is now no child’s play to save the principles of Jefferson from total overthrow in this nation.

One would start with great confidence that he could convince any sane child that the simpler propositions of Euclid are true; but, nevertheless, he would fail, utterly, with one who should deny the definitions and axioms. The principles of Jefferson are the definitions and axioms of free society.

And yet they are denied and evaded, with no small show of success.

One dashingly calls them “glittering generalities”; another bluntly calls them “self evident lies”; and still others insidiously argue that they apply only to “superior races.”

These expressions, differing in form, are identical in object and effect–the supplanting the principles of free government, and restoring those of classification, caste, and legitimacy. They would delight a convocation of crowned heads, plotting against the people. They are the van-guard–the miners, and sappers–of returning despotism.

We must repulse them, or they will subjugate us.

This is a world of compensations; and he who would be no slave, must consent to have no slave. Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, can not long retain it.

All honor to Jefferson–to the man who, in the concrete pressure of a struggle for national independence by a single people, had the coolness, forecast, and capacity to introduce into a merely revolutionary document, an abstract truth, applicable to all men and all times, and so to embalm it there, that to-day, and in all coming days, it shall be a rebuke and a stumbling-block to the very harbingers of re-appearing tyranny and oppression.

Your obedient Servant
A. Lincoln–

 

Now, you who call yourselves Republicans claim that you are of the Party of Lincoln.  Yet, you have been caught violating voting rights against blacks and Latinos, most of you do not support the Americans with Disabilities Act-which a Republican was politically blackmailed into signing in 1990.

You believe that immigrants will subjugate you, but the jobs they performed when they were here are not being filled by you.  Hence, lazy white people have rotted entire fields because they didn’t want to work, and the price of groceries has increased because of your laziness.

By the way, I hope all of you white supremacists starve before you are able to bring another inbred thing into the world.

Abraham Lincoln supported unionization.  You do not.
Abraham Lincoln supported freedom.  You do not.
Abraham Lincoln (save for one misdeed) was a humanitarian.  You modern-day Republicans, those of you who are bewitched by the occultism of Trumpism, aren’t even human beings.

Nikki Haley, Prostitute

 

American ambassador, Nikki Haley, condemned the United Nations’ report on poverty in the United States Monday, according to The Guardian.  This is a bit hypocritical, especially since she announced America’s departure from UN’s human rights council.

Americans have never really believed in human rights, as Americans have engaged in slavery and genocide over the past two centuries.  So, who are Americans to whine about human rights-especially when conservatives in the United States say that waterboarding isn’t torture?

Let’s take a look at our human rights record, shall we?

Genocide of Native Americans
Slavery
Jim Crow Laws
Plessy v. Ferguson (separate, but equal)
Displacement of Japanese Americans during World War II
My Lai, 1968
Forced sterilization of people with developmental disabilities and mental illness
Iraq War
Haditha

It doesn’t look good for the United States of America, does it?

Americans have always been hypocritical about the concept of human rights, but Donald Trump is brazen in this outright hypocrisy.  He doesn’t even hide it.

Look at the way children were ripped their parents just days ago-including a child with a developmental disability.

https://www.thecut.com/2018/06/corey-lewandowski-mocks-girl-torn-from-mom-womp-womp.html

Had I seen that I would have torn the bastard’s tongue right out of his fucking God damn head for mocking that poor little girl.

Remember that the Republican Party is supposed to uphold Christian virtue-as if Christianity had any virtue to uphold in the first place.

Does it not state in their Bible that we are to welcome the immigrant among us?  And if so, does the Bible make any distinction between legal and supposedly illegal?

New International Version “Do not oppress a foreigner; you yourselves know how it feels to be foreigners, because you were foreigners in Egypt.”

Oops.

You’ve read it from me before, and I’ll reiterate the point, American Christians are going to burn in Hell for misery they have wrought upon the most vulnerable.

Still Fighting

 

 

I’m still fighting what happened a while back, and it’s safe to say that I’m pretty much done with religion.

Religionists are very bigoted when it comes to things which they refuse to understand; those things which are either socially or scientifically related.  They only refer to Bible verses when it comes to issues like depression and aggression.  What’s more, you have read the passages which I have cited in the past.  You can read them in the archives.   You will find nothing but hypocrisy in them, as it would be nice if Christians at least tried to behave like Christ-Who actually healed people instead of judge their behavior.

Religionists hate people with traumatic brain injury.  There are some with disabilities for whom they do try to help, but not with TBI.  They still believe that to be a liberal excuse.  Remember that these people don’t believe in Science-mainly don’t understand it, and never have.  The flat-Earth belief is now currently being pushed by them again, and https://christianflatearthministry.org/ is just one example, so it’s no surprise that they judge behavior without researching the reason why a certain behavior would be exhibited.

This also happened when I worked with Tommy, the man with autism, when we were ejected from the Santa Barbara Mission in California.  They didn’t like his yelling-which he couldn’t help.  My fate will probably be decided on Friday, when I talk to the pastor.  However, I don’t care anymore.  I know that it will only be a pattern, as the religionists continue to express their ignorance at will, at the expense of people who have been hurt so many times that anything could make them snap.

Jesus healed an autistic man in Mark, Chapter 9, so there is no excuse for the modern-day religionist to hate people with developmental disabilities.

One either believes that all human life is sacred, or one votes for the political party that wants to destroy every social program just tells us all every voter needs to know.

Heaven and Hell

 

Someone in a Facebook discussion stated: “I don’t believe in heaven or hell.


But damn. If there is a heaven, dogs should take precedence.”

Well, if there’s no Hell, I’d like to know where Adolf Hitler is for genocide and I’d also like to know where Donald Trump is headed since he likes to make fun of people with disabilities:

Of course, there’s a Hell.  We’re all evil in one sense or another, as the human being is a prick by his very nature.

However, those who make fun or victimize those born with disabilities are the lowest of human excrement, and their Bible warns them what will happen to them, and the best example of this can be found in Matthew 25:42-46….just see above, as his attitude against the poor and his attitude against the disabled continues to worsen with every day he remains in office.

In fact, anyone who denies the disabled justice will burn like an American flag in Eternity-just look at the parable of Lazarus and the Rich Man in Luke 16:19-31.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke+16%3A19-31&version=NIV

The funny thing is that all of these people who oppose a rape victim’s right to choose think they are going to Heaven because they truly believe that they saved one life (while ruining another).  This is especially funny since Republicans in Illinois tried to pass a bill which would have made it impossible for a single mother to apply for aid if she could not identify the father of her child.

Now, let’s suppose that the father of her child just happened to be her own father.

It’s quite possible that Christ is disgusted by this behavior, which is being done in His Name, but it’s hard to say for sure.

However, with regard to people with disabilities, remember that the Republican Party has cut services for the disabled since Wigboy weaseled his way into the White House, and they are the ones who want to force everyone to pray in public schools again.
