On November 16, 1944 , I was birthed approximately 9 + months after copulation and, thereby conception, between Louise Stallworth Channel and Charlie Estus Ezell Channel, Sr — descendants of slaves on this planet.
Thank you both and eternal gratitude is all I leave to my parents, who made my existence possible. Hopefully, I have made and left those vibes that glorify the beauty of love, truth, honesty and character they inspired. It is to them the tributes belong.
‘ ”A house divided against itself cannot stand.” I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave to ignorance and stupidity, and falsity and half free from bigotry, and . I do not expect the US to be dissolved—I do not expect the house to fall—but I do expect it will cease to be divided.’
It’s undeniable that intuition plays a big role in decision making. Subconscious mental processes that bubble up in the mind as emotion creates awareness of a feeling. That feeling plays a part in decision making.
How important is it? “It” depends upon the action to be taken. “It” depends upon the awareness of context in which the “It” is surrounded (including the “It” of the “Id”).
The problem is results (or facts) are often counter-intuitive.
Example: not looking both ways before you cross the street!
The problem with going with the gut is reality is often COUNTER INTUITIVE.
Example: The car came from the direct you did not see.
Clearly, the correct path was counter-intuitive. Life, money and more time wasted could have been saved by taking a moment to look both ways, before crossing a street.
Khashoggi: It’s not even a question of who ordered him murdered, granted the permission to utilize resources and assets, or even what happened to body parts (because they flew out of Turkey and over open waters) on the return trip. Do you think any ordinary Saudi could cook up the scheme?
The real question, in my mind, is “Why?” More specifically, “What did Khashoggi know that was such a threat to the House of Saud, that the Crown Prince and his ilk resorted to such subterfuge in assassination?”
Last night, a Negro came to me in a dream:
Uncle Tom, I may be. Uncle Tom, you call me, despite kneeling on knee. But, you know the White man did and always will sell his mama for a dollar. I guess his hope is in the saying, ‘now more of my friends won’t see squalor.’ White man saying one should die for the greater good, particularly in my greater neighborhood. The place where love, morality and truth once stood.
Not to worry, there’s no debate: It is what it is, that was his fate!
When Cubans risked their lives, fleeing Castro’s take over, before and after he did so, were the beaches of Florida and U.S. territorial waters ever barbed-wired, militarized and absolutely blockaded to fleeing migrants?
When a person is evidently irrational to the a reasonable law enforcement officer who suspects access to a weapon of mass destruction could result in harm to that person or the public, should not removal of access to the weapon of mass destruction should be the law?
So, N.R.A., there were those who did have guns last night at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, California. Did that mitigate the carnage?
Why can’t politicians get real?* Why can’t the N.R.A. and say what’s right and true? What say ye, Justice Kavanaugh?
Migration is to evolution as breathing (respiration or transpiration) is to life. Everything has existed in something else for that life’s existence. An, then there was birth.
Immigration is simply a milestone in migration. Migration has always existed. Likewise, immigration always existed, and always will. Trust me on this one: Animals copulate. Animals migrate. Or, they die.
If you oppose immigration, you are simply opposing life. “Hello!” You get better odd playing the Super-duper lotto. Good luck with that!
Obviously, the 25th Amendment or impeachment is “off the table.” Likewise, character is not relevant to leadership. Neither is truth. Thus, truth is invalid. Hypocrisy is the cotter pin of politics and control of people. The wheel of justice wobbles towards a catastrophic failure of consensus. The vehicle becomes uncontrollable. Crash is inevitable, if not imminent.
“There must be someway out of here!”
I’ll keep Impeachment and the Constitution on the table, like the Sword of Damocles, swinging always to decapitate lies, hypocracy, ignorance and demons, democratically.
By the way, anybody who wants to should kneel when the National Anthem is played at sporting events. Life or limb or mind loss in professional sport (it’s nothing more than a fucking game for $$,$$$,$$$ and a spectator’s emotional charge) is disgustingly profane and a defilement of life and limb for emotion and materialism.
Anyone who “enjoys” it should condescend and pray for forgiveness. For those who actively engage in the sport, supplication to one’s deity for protection (as superstitious as that is) should be first and foremost before every contest.
If you don’t understand what I’m writing (and thinking and trying to say), you are an idolater, holding to your explicit bias. Understand, if you can, that i do not, am not and cannot be. That’s the essence of individuality. Hear me, oh land of the brave, home of the free! I didn’t eat the apple from the God damned tree!!
