Incomprehensibilities

Incomprehensibilities

Medical practices that evaluate whether they will allow someone to be a patient.

Christians who twist their souls into knots about accepting or not refugees (in this case). I’m sure such an ideological dislocation exists with other people, in other situations.

Buddhists who do nothing to help people but, yet, hold Bodhisattvas in high esteem.

Luddites who use technology while damning it.

The image I see in the mirror. The face I comprehend but my mind still sees me as thin beyond measure but the mirror image I see is fat. Skinny arms and legs, gorilla belly. This being and percepting are incomprehensible to me. I also do not understand why I’m so old. Surely I was given the wrong body when these were handed out.

Why people accept–why media airs!–reporters who comment on and opine in the most graphic, negative manner about incidents. . .and then say they were not there. The instance to mind is the attacks on the two blacks at a Trump rally by the whites in the all-but-two white crowd. Even while the video was rolling showing the two Black Lives Matter blacks doing nothing but being set upon, beaten and kicked and corralled so they could not escape, the on-air reporter classed these two as nothing more than thugs, rabble rousers and troublemakers who deserved what they got. Overtly racist. And spouting the same language, the same rhetoric used during the early portion of Hitler’s Cancellorship when Jew-baiting and Jew-beating was beginning. It is not only incomprehensible that such vituperative, racist sentiments be aired on TV but that the audience would choose to believe what they are told rather than what they see. And then, by-the-by, “I was not there.” A stage throw-away line that will, indeed, be thrown away by the audience.

As Lucy Liu’s pineapple-heiress’s boyfriend says when she stands before him and his two girlfriends in bed with a gun, “You gonna believe what I tell ya or what ya see?” She killed ’em all. Present-day American audiences choose to believe what they are told, fuck what they see.

I remember the I-was-there novels; CNN and Fox are beginning the TV equivalent I-was-not-there novels. Great stuff.

Isis in Paris

Not likely. This was far too well-planned, far too intricate and involved much more time than ISIS is interested in spending on anything. But we, the US, Britain and France want it to be ISIS. Especially the US. We need more fear and aggression so our military behind-the-throne rulers can lobby for more money, more killing, more chaos.

One Syrian, so far. So, now, all Syrians are terrorists. All Syrian refugees are terrorists. All injuns is bad too. All nigs is less than human. All Chinks and Nips are sly and cunning, super intelligent and bucktoothed. All Krauts are Nazis/Fascists. All wetbacks are lazy and greasy. All Polaks are dumb plumbers. All Russkies are uncivilized communists. Only America is great and wonderful. Mostly, white rich America.

But all America is immigrant. Some of us undocumented and what would now be called illegal. We’ve done a good job of killing off of the original Americans and hatefully treating immigrants that came after us.

ISIS is no threat at all. No Navy. No Air Force. No heavy land materiel. A few hundred thousand men who once held territory about the size of Indiana in an area where everyone hates them. Even the Arabs hate ’em and they love terrorists. The Arabs sent us the 911 bombers.

The US has lost any sense of identity and so we create enemies and give them ideals of hate that they probably don’t have and call the result a personality, a character. The US has no face to keep. My country, with so much potential has blown this all to hell by its mindless, thoughtless behavior. America has become an easy target for hating.

ISIS has claimed responsibility for the Paris debacle. Well, of course! Look at all the publicity they’re getting? Now they are really on the map!

Fucking wake up people!!

Irritating things

Irritating Things

Complaints that there are too many poor people with health problems and, so, that’s good reason to not expand Medicaid.

People who raise mental health issues to explain sociocultural problems. Which itself is a sign of mental illness: denial and avoidance.

Doctors who went into medicine as a Calling and then run Concièrge Medical offices with minimum subscription rates that poor people cannot afford. But Concièrge Medicine is touted as medical care for all. So, what happened to God’s Call?

People who hate immigrants but are themselves the off-spring of immigrants, i.e. everyone in the United States but the Indians, i.e. many, many in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and California, Joe Arpaio.

Athlete and performer heroes who accept awards and accolades with great humility and tell you so in vaudevillian seriousness.

NCIS.

People who know it all or know it better or just can’t be wrong; that is, it’s your fault. Like the woman who has lived in the city for four years and doesn’t know her way around. She relies on her GPS. GPS devices are notoriously wrong. And, sure enough, it was wrong. But instead of accepting the inevitable, instead of believing what she was seeing rather than what she was being told, she told the man that it was his fault, he had given her the wrong information. Which was akin to telling him he did not know where he lived. He pointed out to her that he’d lived in the city for 30 years and knew better than a GPS that had been around for only a few years. But she knew better.

Pretenders to knowledge, like Scott C. Brown and Steven Pinker, not to mention “educators” within government and Presidents who are interested in Newspeak and Face.

Me.

People who blame soccer concussions on heading the ball when, in fact, concussions happen when players bang into each other–and not only when both are trying to head the ball. The NFL will do nothing to stop their massive concussion problem as it might negatively impact their profit margin; so the doctors who are over-playing their cards are going after the, perceived, less controlled soccer, at least the youth leagues in the US. So happy that these Dr. Assholes will now make the future American soccer players so very much less world class than they are now! (please do not include the men, here)

Do-gooders ought to be avoided, including not bothering to listen to them. All of these do-gooder doctors are American doctors. America, home of everything is bad for you, everything will kill you, everything will give you one disease or another. Land of the world is against us. Everybody’s a threat. Like the rebels in Nauru who are shooting off phosphorus missiles in the neighborhood of passing US ships in an attempt to join the nuclear weapons group and, so, wipe out the vicious, blood-curdling Americans. The Vatican City is, I hear via Fox and CNN, building up their arsenal. The Holy Spirit is not enough for a reconquest of the world.
