K.C. Chiefs Jovan Belcher kills girlfriend shoots himself


 

And the stories continue to come in.  I certainly hope that it’s clear how susceptible we all truly are to our own lives.  Even if it’s not you that snaps, the person you’re with could totally snap.  Would you believe that it’s due to communication deficiencies?  We are simply collections of all that’s been suggested to us and we respond accordingly… keyword respond.

Tragedies like this and so many more are avoidable if we’d only care to Dehypnotize!  We continue to use the same excuses for the same issues yet we expect different results.  Time for a shake up in the same old same…

Police aren’t yet releasing the name of the player or the girlfriend until the family has been notified. Stay tuned for updates.

 

UPDATE: Jovan Belcher, 25 is the player.  Read story here: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/report-chiefs-player-kills-girlfriend-takes-own-life-154951891–nfl.html

 

 

Another Teen Shot in FL (Jodan Davis)


Photo Credit: www.examiner.com

Another life has been senselessly taken far too early.  Michael Dunn has been charged with 2nd degree murder, for the shooting and killing of teen Jordan Davis, after an argument over loud music at a gas station.  Read the full story here :http://news.yahoo.com/video/man-charged-killing-teen-over-234016693.html

As these same stories continue to play out in the media, it’s almost becoming what’s to be expected; including the backlash.  I’ve already read and heard the racial tension in this story beginning to build.  The sad part is that this type of behavior will continue to manifest in this manner until we name the true culprit… lack of emotional control.  Color matters as much as the day that this occurred on.  What do you think Mr. Dunn is thinking now?  Probably that the loud music wasn’t that serious after all.  What about the families?  All because of a moment of emotional expression that could only be said loud enough with a gunshot…or nine!

I’ll say again that many of us could find ourselves in situations where we act before thinking and end up in less than desired situations.  When we respond to provocation around us, we become susceptible to whatever that energy brings to the table; now you’re in react – react mode.  It’s all goes down hill from there.

I think what’s worse is the incline in the devaluation of life.  I think the more people who inhabit the earth, the less important life actually becomes.  So, many wars, murders, rape that you almost become numb to it.  What’s going on these days?

Is vigilantism the way of the future.  Will we become destitute hermits confined by our own ways or belief systems?  This is not the future I’d like to see for my descendants.  Just as the Egyptians, the Romans, Greeks have their place in history, one day people will write about our place on the timeline…what will be our story?

Black Friday 2012 Goes Online (Wal – Mart workers strike)


I read an article the other day about Wal – Mart employees planning a walkout on Black Friday due to the invasion of family time.  Now I can totally agree with the employees here.  At what point does family become more important than profit?  What’s the point of having holidays if you’re not able to spend them with your family?  Holidays should be a time to take a break from the everyday chaos, not a time to create more.

But why would Wal-Mart do this?  How could they be so insensitive?  Because the people have demanded it.  The earlier that people were willing to get out and stand in the cold waiting for the doors to open, the earlier the stores begin to open.  So, now it’s basic supply and demand.  So, I totally agree with Wal-mart too.

Alas, someone in operations saw the light, “Why not put Black Friday deals online?” 

“Genius!” another responded.  We’ll allow people to order online and have their products shipped directly to them! Why didn’t someone think of this before?”

“I don’t know, maybe we thought that people wouldn’t go for it.  I think people actually like standing in line, in the cold……..(fictional story).

Seriously though, are most people that suggestible that they’d continue this behavior even with the option of not having to go through it?  I certainly hope not

The site listed below is a conglomeration of all of your favorite stores including the ones offering Black Friday deals.  Some of them even give you cash back for shopping online… think of the employees…

Why Republicans don’t get the “Black Vote”


Obviously there are black Republicans but overall most in the African-American community vote Democrat.  Why is that? The last time I checked, most African-Americans disagree with Gay Marriage or Abortion according to most polls that is.  That’s funny because that’s what the Republicans stand for.  What about religious rights?  A majority (not all) in the black community believe in Christianity and everyone else is going to hell… so does the Republican agenda.

I was curious as to why the word Republican is a bad word in our community.  How is it that a party could represent a number of the same beliefs as a major demographic yet never get close to half the votes from this segment of the society? ….

It’s the language.  Democrats are seen as the party for the people and Republicans are seen as the party of old rich white men.  The problem with Republican Party is that they haven’t learned how to speak the language and no I don’t mean the lyrics to a hip hop song.  I mean they haven’t conveyed a message of care to the black community.   This is not to say that Republicans don’t care or even that its their job to, but that’s the point, people don’t respond to how things are, they respond more to how they appear to be.  Honestly, the biggest difference between most races, genders, parties or religions is… the language and language is communication and communication is behavior.   You can’t effectively spread your message until you learn the language of those with whom you’re communicating it to.  How else could you ever explain yourself?

It’s  funny how everything that happens on a microscopic scale happens on the macroscopic scale also.   What happens between political parties happens in our

personal relationships too.  We’re just little dots that make up a big picture or fractal geometric.  When these two parties were formed I can’t believe that it was based on how to best destroy a country. I’m sure the exact opposite was true, how can we make this the best country ever?  However, something gets in the way of that common goal and you already know by now what that is… Physicals vs Emotionals, Left brain vs. Right brain communication or lack thereof.  One cares about things and the other cares about feelings.  They believe the other to be sent from hell and work to eliminate this god awful threat to humanity.  Only to now become surrounded by like minds that compete for the same position.

Left or right brain, Physical or Emotional, Type A or B, Democrat or Republican, Wall Street or Main Street, it’s all opposing energy expressing itself as behavior.  One is not good and the other bad, one is not righteous and the other evil; they’re just opposites.  Right now our country is divided negatively because we choose sides to go to war instead of creating an opportunity to learn from the other.  Can you imagine where any country could be if they solved this riddle of the opposites?  What if the entire world got it?  I know that was too far.

So, to the Republican party, if you’d like to get more of the “black vote” you have to change your language, communication…behavior.  You have to communicate your message in a way that is received as caring about the people and not as pity or sympathy.  How would you do that?  Go ask!

A man who knows it all lacks heart and the man who feels it all lives in confusion but the man who knows and feels equally knows prosperity.

Final 2012 Presidential Debate


Well, I’m not sure who that was that showed up for the president in the first debate but, I’m sure his team is over joyed that he didn’t show back up.  Most give the first debate to Romney.

The second debate offered a more physical or aggressive president where Romney seemed to become more physical than he was in the first debate also.  Most gave this one to the president.

This last debate was probably one-sided due to the amount of experience the president brought to the table.  This came across more as confidence and control as opposed to the arrogance that can sometimes be on display in these events.  Romney was obviously not as versed in foreign affairs as the president however, he didn’t completely bomb in his responses.  I’m not sure who will be named the winner in this one but I’m sure both sides will take credit for the win.

Now that we’ve experienced the first term of an African-American president, I think the focus will now ease back into the issues at hand.  I’ve tried to focus on the behavior of the candidates as opposed to their politics because we all know that politicians are less than forthcoming yet we follow their words like religious text and then we get angry when they don’t or can’t follow through.  This simply means that we go for the candidate that makes us feel they’re most like us.  At the end of the day, where did who or how we are come from?  It came from those that suggested it to us and that’s what we have excepted as being us.

Whether Democrat, Republican, or Independent; black, white or brown, the soul of a nation is determined by the will of its people and ultimately decides the course of its own future.

Don’t forget to vote!!

2012 Vice Presidential Debate – Biden vs. Ryan


As expected, the Vice Presidential debate carried a bit more fire works than the presidential debate.  Again, I’m not really concerned about the content of what was said but the behavior on display.  This debate was all over the place. Why? It’s very simple, Physicals make for better television.  Their reactive natures seldom leave room for boredom.  The Vice President seemed to be more of the Physical in this duel.

The next presidential debate will no doubt be watch by even more viewers than the first.  This time you’ll probably see a more aggressive president and an even more aggressive governor.  However, the president risks coming across as un-natural or unrealistic because aggression is not his personality.  If he doesn’t come across more aggressively he’ll be seen as losing the next one as well.  So as the nation prepares to choose its next president based on how the candidate made them feel, I wonder how long that feeling will last this time.

Although many surveys conclude that most people disapprove of negative ads; candidates use them without hesitation.  They must be surveying the wrong people or… people actually like negative ads… at least about the opponent.  Do you think they would keep using them if they weren’t effective?

If you ever should wonder why I continue to write from a Physical/ Emotional position, it’s because every part of our lives are affected by this concept. We’re not of our own minds. We respond to what is suggested to us and we think that it comes from our own decision-making.  SUGGESTIBILITY – it is the most dangerous unknown.
