Is There A Psychiatrist In the House?
The more I read the latest of Glen Beck and Teabagger's insane babblings and what they are about the more I think that they might need to see a good head shrink. And to think they represent those on the right's values and ideals. Scary! Or are Americans that stressed out that they are just not thinking straight these days.
As a child I would sometimes spend the summer with my grandmother. I remember back then how my grandmother would sometimes take in boarders who were family members or friends. They were family or friends who had moved from the South to the West Coast in search of employment, a better life, and to escape the severeness of Jim Crow. She would give them a temporary place to stay until they could get on their feet and secure their own place.
Anyway, I remember one cousin who was an alcoholic. The stress caused from racism had drove him to drinking heavily. Alcohol was his stress reliever. However, his drinking heavily caused him and even bigger problem...alcoholic "Delirium tremens" and he would have hallucinations whenever he stopped drinking for a few days and would say some of the craziest things.
Glen Beck reminds me of that alcoholic cousin with all his blackboard and chalk conspiracies. The only difference is my cousin wasn't a danger to our American society as a whole because we kept him in the house whenever he had his little hallucination moments out of other people's sight. However, Fox We Make Up Lies News likes to show Glen Beck off as a so-called savior of the people who is warning us and trying to save us from our President who he claims is a "Socialist" and "Muslim" and "Communist" that is out to destroy America. All of these are hallucinations which stem from Glen Beck.
Then there are the other candidates that the teabaggers are backing like Christine O'Donnell, Rand Paul, Carly Fiorina, Meg Whitman, Ron Johnson, and don't forget the Miller guy in Alaska and a few other wierdoes. After Levy's interview on MSNBC yesterday it makes me think that those folks in Wasilla, Alaska don't believe in reading newspapers or require that their schools teach government civics classes. I guess they don't think they need them seeing how they can see Russia from their backyard.
The one dude that is really scary is that Paladino who is running for governer in New York with his thuggish mannerisms. He reminds me of one of those characters in a mobster movie. Well...considering the background of his aides he might be a real-life thug.
What disturbs me is that these GOP candidates are against government. Okay, so why would anyone who is against government run in the first place? Do they not realize that the positions they are running for are government positions?
All of my life I observed people and often wondered why hatred between the human beings exists. As a black woman I have experienced it proliferated towards my people and me in myriad extreme and often subtle forms in which one could ever imagine toward a group of people.
One day, while meditating I asked the question why do people hate so much not knowing that this question would take me on a journey that would lead to an answer which has been one of the greatest deceptions in the history of mankind.
My journey has led me to the place that I am now, which is fighting against injustice, inequality, and enslavement of the minds of my people by the pharaohs of today.
Lord knows I am not perfect, nor do I profess to be. Neither are my people and no human being on earth is as a matter-of-fact. There are human flaws in every single race.
So, then my question is what gives one race the idea that they should have control over all others?
