Final Decision

 

Article

After careful consideration, I have decided to leave the College of Education and return to psychology in order to seek a Master’s degree in the discipline.

The tragedy is that this could have been avoided had a person in Technical Support not been an asshole to me, as I had tried to describe my brain injury to the motherfucker, and all he knew to do was to tell me to ‘calm down-which isn’t what you say to someone who is already agitated and is attempting to do exactly that.

People who are supposedly college educated need to understand the inner workings of the brain.  If they can give a rapist who destroyed a 12-year-old girl in Haditha while in American military uniform the benefit of the doubt, I expect the same courtesy.

I don’t think he was particularly pleased when I said that to him, as it might have hit him in the nay-nays.

Good, as that’s what he would deserve for demonstrating the idiocy to fight in Iraq in the first place-if he’s actually guilty as charged.

When asked by Administration what would prevent me from having a meltdown, I replied, “I worked with an autistic dude for nearly ten years.”

Don’t give me this ‘professional dialogue’ bullshit.  We’re all human beings, damn it.  We’re not robots.

If telling people off on the phone makes me a son of a bitch, that’s fine by me.  That’s why they get paid the big money.  However, reaching out to someone who has suffered trauma that is decades-old is completely different, and I actually have compassion for that.  This is because I know exactly what it’s like.

I know what it’s like to relive past trauma in a church.  In fact, I just experienced it.

I know what it’s like to have no friends.

I know what it’s like to be so fucking depressed that you want to eat iron with a gunpowder chaser.

I survived, and I want those people to know that they can do the same.  Sometimes, one has to be a bigger bastard than the one who is bullying them, as that’s how one gets another to leave them alone.

There really is no right or wrong anymore, as the ‘guardians of morality’ are more corrupt than we are.  Therefore, one should throw all guilt aside and do what comes naturally.

Trust me, you’ll be the better for it.

Here’s What To Do With A Cordless Phone If You Don’t Have Short-Term Memory

If you have a traumatic brain injury, like I do, there’s no doubt that you lose the dumbest things in the world-like phones.  Most people lose things part of the time, but we never remember where we put anything, do we?   And it’s not where we last remembered seeing it.

Remember when they were on walls or atop a table?

Then some “genius” decides to “make life more convenient” by inventing the cordless phone.   Yeah, it’s convenient for everyone-but us.

We never remember where the hell we put the motherfucker, do we?  We hear it ringing and hunt like Elmer Fudd-and we wind up looking like Elmer Fudd in the end, too…as we’ve only managed to make a total ass of ourselves.

The problem is that the prefrontal cortex, found in the frontal lobe, works about as well as that used car you bought off your “friend” for $200.  It’s so thrashed that it couldn’t play thrash metal if it were a member of the San Francisco-based thrash metal band, Exodus.

People accuse you of daydreaming or simply not paying attention, but that’s because they’re idiots-and there’s no excuse for being an idiot in the 21st Century, as one should research another whose behavior they find peculiar.

Meanwhile, you wind up firing obscenities at the moron-who then accuses you of having an attitude.

Believe me, I sympathize, as I’ve lived it myself.  The irony is that, even after all the research with all of those who returned from the Iraq War with traumatic brain injury, the bastards still refuse to apologize, as they cite ignorance as an excuse.  It’s funny, but these are the same hypocritical sons of bitches who tell us that ignorance is no excuse.

The usual problem is that STM (short-term memory) doesn’t become LTM (long-term memory) because of the hippocampus, and that’s in your brain’s temporal lobe.  The funny thing is that my short-term memory usually does become long-term memory.  This is because my memory works like a Polaroid.

The details return later-and in small bits.

Scientists at the Canadian Institutes of Health Research discovered that there must be unison.  The memory must clear through a hippocampal pathway several times.

https://www.livestrong.com/article/71854-longterm-memory-loss/

It’s like a road trip; from the hippocampus through an obstacle course inside the hypothalamus, known as the mammillary bodies, to the anterior cortex, and returning to the hippocampus-and then it’s stored in the cerebral cortex-but only if your head hasn’t been hit by pallets or if you haven’t played in the National Football League.

According to columnist Lia Stannard, researchers at Georgia Tech found that LTM doesn’t decay like STM-and that’s me, kids.   It’s probably your experience, too.

It’s frustrating and most people can’t figure out why we are so pissed off when they give us the statements I mentioned prior.

It almost makes you want to hit them in the head with an aluminum baseball bat, just to see what it’s like…. doesn’t it?  The problem is that we’d get caught because we would forget how to get out of the area in the first place.

People had just best shut up about our frustration-of which I warn them.

There’s several things I plan to do with regard to this issue.

I have a fifty-year-old rotary phone that works better than any of the crap that’s on the market today-and it’s got that short cord.   I always know where it is.

If I absolutely must carry a cordless phone of any kind, I put the thing in my pocket.

Beat Some Sense Into the Ignorant

Did anyone see the Space X Launch Coverage of Space X CRS-14 Mission on YouTube today?

Anyone who did see the launch of the Falcon 9 could clearly see that Earth is a sphere, so why does anyone listen to some religious jackass who tells them that Earth is as flat as the tits of an 85-year-old stripper?

It’s simply time to stop giving these freaks a platform and simply give them the taste of a Louisville Slugger baseball bat after they have been sodomized with it first, because these religious fundamentalists are destroying America.

America once led the world in science.  However, that leadership has been compromised since the religious freaks began to take over in the United States, and this takeover began in the early 1970’s under those like Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell, as the far-right slowly took power in preparation for their political takeover in the United States-and you saw what happened as a result of that.

America began its freefall in its relative standings in math and science when the Religious Right came into political prominence .  Of course, Reagan’s budget cuts in Education added to the problem.

However, with these religious fundamentalists now telling us that Earth is flat when rockets like the Falcon 9 prove that to be an utter lie, America has one way to go:

DOWN.

The belief in God or in Christ is not the problem, because most scientists in America’s early years believed in God.  Religion becomes a problem when religious freaks dare to interfere with Science and with human rights.

FUCK THE U.S. MILITARY!

A friend of mine on Facebook tried to explain why a lot of yahoos join the army.

“There are also those who join to keep from being deported or sent to prison. And others who just plain can’t get a job.”

Too fucking bad. ANYONE who joins the military at this time, you are a fucking God damn L O S E R and a C R I M I N A L..

This is NOT 1942 and this is NOT 1950.

Anyone who joins the military should be EXECUTED BY THE UNITED NATIONS.

Besides, soldiers are known to be uneducated pieces of shit anyway, so it’s no loss.

FUCK THE UNITED STATES ARMED FORCES! I WANT MY MONEY BACK!

By the way, let those baby killers pay for their own problems if they’re stupid enough to believe that America is still their home after the way they disgrace this nation overseas.Manage

No automatic alt text available.

The BBC reports that nearly two in five American soldiers have a SIXTH GRADE READING LEVEL!

 

American Soldiers Are IDIOTS!

FUCK THE UNITED STATES ARMED FORCES! I WANT MY MONEY BACK!

By the way, let those baby killers pay for their own problems if they’re stupid enough to believe that America is still their home after the way they disgrace this nation overseas.Manage

And as if that weren’t enough, just check out this Slate article from 2008 with regard to academic standards, appropriately with the title : Dumb and Dumber.

Now, how can anyone support these morons?  How can America remain great when her soldiers are filled with a group of Beavises and Buttheads?

Fuck the U.S. military.

Learning Disabled

 

 

I am currently working with two children who have special needs.  It’s not easy, but it’s kind of fun, to be honest.

This prepares me for the days when I actually do teach, as it gives me more patience-and I have my own brain issues to work with.

One child is dyslexic and the other child has anxiety issues.  Both are under 12.

Oh, yeah!  I’m studying Education in grad school now, so maybe that might help to paint the picture a little better.

The average American casts children like these into the sea.  But then again, the average American is a dumbass who is too short sighted and selfish to think about the greater good-and the rest of the world has picked up on this.

The older one gets bullied often, so I have to cruise the streets to find this little fucker and give him a warning-just enough to put the fear of God and the devil into his punk ass.  Both have issues with time in the morning, as they fight the inevitable-as any kid would.

This wears on their mother, who is my girlfriend, of course.  However, I have no found myself being the very person whom I despise in many cases, for their sake, as I have had to explain to them what the world will do to them if they are not prepared to take on the world.

Good luck to me, huh?

My Feelings on Being in the Master’s Program and How The American System of Education is a JOKE!

 

 

Being in the Master’s program feels like the beginning of (what was for me) junior high school again.

I honestly must admit that I don’t know what I’m doing this time, but I know that I’ll catch on.  This is because the required grade point average to stay off Academic Probation is at least a 3.0-which was what I scored before I fell apart in 2016-3.17, if you want to be technical about it.

I now major in a something that I really think is crap, but I need to get employment of some kind before this really takes off-EDUCATION.

Are you cereal, man?   I still compose black metal on my Fender and my Jackson. What are you talking about? I’ve been a heavy metal guitar player for 32 years, okay?

Everyone knows that the American system of education sucks so bad that it swallows, too.  Who do we blame for that?

Don’t blame the teacher unions, because I now realize how hard it is to get this degree.

Blame the Republicans.

It’s the Republican Party that wants a poorly-educated voting population so that they can continue to destroy the poor.

Look at the states the Republicans control.

Tennessee, Alabama (got lucky in that special election-and don’t deny it), Georgia, the Carolinas-poverty nearly all the way around.  Texas is one of the few exceptions, because of their oil industry.

This, of course, has been a problem for the last thirty years-ever since Reagan began to gut social programs so that he could build the war machine.  The last Republican who had any sense about this issue was Jerry Ford, because you must have a well-educated worker to maintain the best military in the world.  You also must have soldiers who are excellent with the ability to think critically on the battlefield-and that leaves the Americans out.  American soldiers are about as stupid as they come nowadays.

Haditha.

Thank you.

I know what you’re thinking.  You’re wonder why I’m getting myself into a profession I don’t really like.  While I feel a sense of dread as I enter this area, I must do it if I want to buy a house of my own-short of becoming wildly successful at this…it can happen!  Furthermore, I can teach better than a lot of people because I’m going to show those kids that we’re really on the same team.

“Just get through the fucking thing, and you can get out of here and spend your summer with your chick rather than just waste time here.  You’re going to have to do it anyway.  Why not do it once?”

In other words, I understand how they feel and why they feel the way that they do.  Hell, I still feel that way-and I’m 47!  I always knew American society was a dead baby joke because of its hypocrisy.

Okay, so I’m learning the do’s and do not’s of being a Master’s candidate.  I’ve screwed up before-and I learn from my mistakes…. unlike American voters.

And So, It Begins….

Article

$0.50

 

And so, it begins, my journey into the world of Education… all as I hear Pink Floyd’s Another Brick in the Wall playing in my brain.

You already know that I’m conflicted about this, as I kind of see this as selling out.  However, I need a job which has union support-especially after what I went through both at Walmart and as a community trainer and respite worker for someone with autism.

One of the things I already realize is that I can’t do things the same way I did when I was a community trainer.   I can’t open the trunk of my car and show some bigot or bully that I’m not bluffing when I threaten to take his teeth out, break his knees, and bash his spine when he makes fun of someone who has a developmental disability-which was something no one in the Company ever knew that I did, otherwise I’d have been fired.  That’s kind of funny, because I found myself engaging in that very act almost every day that I went to work with the guy.

There were always some idiots, usually white trash or white suburbanite pricks, who told me that he needed to be put away in an institution.  Tommy is the only reason I didn’t do it, as he would usually take me out of the situation before the bastard who said what he said wound up twitching on the floor in a pool of his own blood-Tommy knew that I would do it, too.  He started out completely non-verbal, but he learned how to plead me to leave by saying the word go.

I suppose one of the funnier episodes is when this white woman clutched her daughter and pulled her closer (because Tommy was black).  She became verbally abusive after I informed her that the white sheets were in Aisle-5.

Of course I said that right in front of her daughter!  Would you expect any less of me?  I mean, come on!

I defended him every day by destroying anyone who taunted him, and no one ever knew about it.  That’s kind of stupid, firing someone for defending the client by any means necessary, but I digress.

Do I want to teach?

No, because it’s so politicized now that it’s hardly worth it.  However, it’s possible that I’m being driven in a position I don’t want to go to wait for the opportunity in my true calling-which is what I do right now…writing.

Maybe I’m supposed to do this teaching crap, not only to tell kids what really went down in recent American history (although they’re going to have to answer according to the textbook), but to teach and enforce the idea of diversity-which is a dangerous concept in the America ruled by the Trump regime.
