tragedy and God

I was reading a news article about a woman and her children brutally murdered. IN it a woman acquainted with the Family stated that we must turn to God Because only He can explain events like this occuring. Please Religous People Think before you use a tragedy or a crises as a platform for our religous beliefs and the conversion of unbelieving masses. I know you mean well but God does not come out well in this use of Her name. It gives some people the view of God allowing this to happen so that She can step in as supersage and enlighten us. Our worse is an ambulance chaser. It is really bad when family members use their tragedy to witness for whatever religion they believe in. Yes they are in great pain unfortunately in trying to use this as a missionary moment they are not psychological dealing with pain. Sometimes God cannot answer our questions, sometimes the light goes out briefly. Sometimes you are not witnessing for God but deluding yourself with religious platitudes, deal with the pain. REalize that everyone feels pain religious, atheist, spiritual or mystical. IN the end they all learn to deal with it or perish with divine help or self-reliance.

Mealy America

I found that my post was edited a few days ago. Wonder why???? WAS I inciting Al Queda and muslim americans or advocating the return of slavery. WAS ASking that heretics, witches. homosexuals and jews be burned again or did I promulgate that Jesus is the only god and those who does not believe this will burn eternally in Hell or excuse me HE double toothpicks, and these people are thus evil and must destroyed. THings one can normally be find on the Internet. NOOOOO> I fortunately used the sh-t and my freedom of speech was immediately erased. IF YOU DO NOT like reading my blog and seeing the word sh_t then do not read. But please go to a MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONAL AND FIND OUT WHY YOU ARE TRAUMATIZED BY DEFECATION. There might be a repressed child abuse case in the making.

Surging Tides

Today I watched Spike Lee's new documentary everytime I watch something made by him I am blown away by his ability to chronicle the culture, times and mindset of late 20th and early 21st century America not just black americans but simply common man america. His works of fiction and documentary speak eloquently of the universiality of ordinary people while embracing the black persons story we see in the hardship of a people, everyones humanity. With this story of the leevies breaking he has shown that this is tragedy of all america. When my brother is hurting I am hurting when a black american is hurting all america is hurting.

I was discourage to see the lack of progress in the gulfstates. But I must acknowledge I have seen recently in the federal government situaitons I have not experienced since the Reagan Administration. There is A great deal of incompetence in the burueacracy It seems endemic in republican administrations. Especially when dealing with the concerns of people without much power and wealth. THE second problem is that when THE INCOMPETENCE is exposed and angry victims of it are demanding redress of the problem. The government reacts with incredible vindictiveness to these poor people. It is never covert abuse that can be sued it is trailers sitting empty because of paper work. Most of their tactic is creating miles of paperwork and witholding help through ommission. Never receiving any paperwork always happens to the most frustrated people files. I have seen it happen to disabled vets since the Bushes have been in office. They spend money to beautify hospital garden while refusing to buy up to the minute and new medication for the sick. I have seen them refuse in southern VA hospital to put an Asian American vet on life support He got on for a week only because an Asian resident bravely countermanded to supervising doctors order after he left the ICU unit. I never saw the resident on that floor again.
The next day the doctors started tormenting the family to pull the plug.

Yes New Orleans ain't going to get much help because they were just too uppity getting angry about their abuse they didn't take it like a man. I can just see it and have seen it. Makes one wish for Clinton back.
