Rachel Canning sued in the past days against their parents and “demanding” them to pay for their High School Tuition, expenses and also College Tuition. But there’s a lot of catches to that story. Rachel was suspended in that Private Catholic School along with her boyfriend which her parents disapproved because of cutting classes. This “honor student” didn’t pick the wrong time to “lie” about her parents “mistreatment” which her mother verbally abused her while her father threatened to punch her to the judge. All in awe of having the judge have a little bit of “heart” in the matter. But as always the truth will show up. In the first round, luckily the parents won the case while Rachel was set up in defeat.
But I just wonder what happened to responsible parenthood and discipline these days? It’s like you’re a kid and everybody have an iphone and you instead have a straight talk phone that all you do is doing calls or you don’t have the latest gaming console or the latest fashion clothes, you gonna sue your parents for that? It’s disgusting and out of place that “parents” these days gives up on giving them the rod and instead they’re giving them a soft hand that later on when they’re teenagers they bite them. For a spoiled brat that doesn’t have the fundamentals of having a job, fundamentals of decency and self-control and yes, responsibility, it strike a chord among parents out there that teach their children right. She should be slapped in her butt a long time ago to never do it again, their tantrums, their high raised egos, their selfishness have to be erased before it could do harm to others and themselves. Thanks for government control over our children, parents have their hands tied and can’t do nothing to redirect their children into the path of good.
I remember a time when parents hit their children in front of everybody and it’s not killing them. Now, children these days expressing their fake authority and false entitlement to their parents that they opted to give the child everything to avoid making a scene. It has to stop, because the government has no right over what’s the proper way to handle a child. This is what happens when the government interferes with it and coward parents can’t defend themselves and in the end we’re creating spoiled brats that could become homeless, losers and dumb fucks in the coming years.
Yesterday, at youtube I saw a video of a “father” with a tired look on his face missing out of two things:
Playing with his tree kids and the dog
Or put Discipline to them (something that most parents lack these days)
Instead, he was looking at the screen sort of giving up the “parenting” routine nearly to the point of shedding some tears but instead he hold on to it.
This video makes me realize one thing. People take these milestones for granted and this is what they’re grateful for? By posting, their “defeat” in front of millions of viewers that parenthood isn’t great. That it was better if he was single, “enjoying” life to the fullest by hurting the ones he may or may not love? What does it teach society that is better live childfree than raising a great family and this guy work it’s way to gain attention successfully to get it’s point.
But at least he have to be grateful for what he have. Three kids? That’s a full-blown blessing! Most couples don’t have not even a dog and it has for years (me included)! Couples that have been fighting tooth and nail to at least have a son or a daughter wasting all their resources and in the end in many cases they give up full of debts and break up in silence. Ryan Hafey should be grateful that he have three rambunctious kids that all they want is his attention. How many selfish parents does that on a daily basis? A lot! They’re not prefect, but parenthood has its ups and downs, and a lot of infertile couples can’t experience that.
I think maybe if childless couples show this guy what it means to be childless on youtube perhaps he could change his mind about what it means to be a parents.
Yesterday, Tuesday March 4, Me and my boyfriend went to CDA which is 50 miles from where I live to buy groceries. At our last stop before leaving we went to a gas station named Tesoro and I filled my van with $5.60 of gas. And we headed to our small town 50 miles away and going to Walmart. As soon as I’m going to pay dog food, my card got declined twice so I panicked and left the place to get my boyfriend to go directly to the bank.
At the bank, the bank tellers told me that I’m still have 44.00 left in my account so I went back to another supermarket and try to buy dog food. Once again, I got declined even with the credit setting. That time I was pissed and decided to go again to the bank to figure it out what’s going on. It turned out that the gas station that I went to and buy the gas at, took all my money and left me in negative $5.60 cents. The teller told me in details that gas stations have that practice of hold some of the money from your account as too see if you have enough to pay for gas and to avoid “run-offs.” Some gas stations hold as far as $100.00. In my case it took all my money and it was plain temporarily theft. I was having panic attacks, having a hard time sleeping that I have to take sleeping pills because of this snafu. I’m not an irresponsible brat. I’m a very responsible person when it comes to spending and trying to stretch that dollar which is not easy. And companies like that who take advantage of the customer by temporarily steal most of your money because of lack of trust, is insensible at worst. At least, I got my money back the next day, where others might not be that lucky waiting for three days max.
And there’s no agencies that can stop this practice that hurts a lot of struggling Americans. The only thing to avoid it is to pay inside with cash instead of at the pump with your debit or credit card. If gas companies are not trusting the customer how the hell customers are going to trust them using their debit or credit card?
Spike Lee’s mansion had been vandalized a couple of days ago after he went into one of his tantrum rant during an African-American History Month lecture at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn against gentrification of his “beloved” town. He was complaining about before “white” folks moved in, the garbage didn’t pick up everyday, there’s no policemen watching the streets and even there were African drummers in Mount Morris Park for 40 years before this “invasion” of higher income jackasses. Now, Lee stated the Drummers are gone, along with the “culture” associated with Brooklyn in the past and replaced with cops, new rules and regulations to “keep” Brooklyn in check and the rest of the people who lived there, obviously got into a better or worst place.
But what’s Gentrification?
Is a shift in an urban community toward wealthier residents and/or businesses and increasing property values.
Before this, Brooklyn was dominated by African-American community for decades bringing their own poverty with it. And now, this gentrification is raising the prices of the properties up so that the rich elite can afford, kicking hard working and low-income out and impose their own with their own rules and regulations. During Lee’s speech he explained his own father who is a jazz musician got visited by the police to keep the noise down. I just wonder what noise? His acoustic bass? How sensitive these new neighbors are? And that’s not all, Lee’s house after his lecture got vandalized and yes, the “po-po’s” are going to “investigate” into the “case.”
The reality of it is that poorest communities suffer because low-income housing is scarce or non-existent. So, where they’re going to live? In their cars? In FEMA trailers? You know where they’re going now? The media doesn’t explain where they’re going and how it’s culture vanished and replaced with rich snobs who have their own culture and destroys it.
Many people in comments obviously tell how racist and immature Lee is. But the reality of the fact is that even though he didn’t raise a hand in helping his “destroyed” community, he got one point across that gentrification destroys communities and replaced it with a culture that are different from it. If the Black community or any don’t do absolutely nothing to improve themselves, this is going to happen in their neighborhood and all hell breaks loose. Is all in the search of the ol’ weakling dollar!

In NY, which is the diversity meca, a woman and her two daughters were killed by the hands of her abusive and violent husband. It’s not common that women get killed or abused in NYC but the reasons of this killing was beyond comprehension when Daisy Garcia visited NYPD to file a police report stating that her husband was going to kill her if they don’t do absolutely nothing about it. Well, not only didn’t handle the case properly but ignored her police report because she wrote in her native tongue which is Spanish. She’s not the only one who fell through the cracks but other six women faced the same obstacle when writing police reports in Spanish instead of English.
In a multicultural country is very shocking to see the deadly results and inability to understand foreign languages. Public Schools are teaching Spanish, and some teach Chinese instead of Latin amid controversies from “patriotic” individuals stating that English is the “official” language and if the foreigners want to receive services from them, they have to write, understand and speak English while saying “y’all, “merica, OMG and ROTFLMAO, which is very common in their vocabulary followed by other offensive words. But how long will the Police Dept. adapt an effective system to translate police reports along with translators onsite? Oh, wait they suppose to have that! She didn’t write just one but three reports telling her violent ex will go and kill them. And he did successfully. Not only the police dept. failed miserably in delivering the case and arrest the guy but also made a bad rap for other women who are facing domestic violence specially Latina. Shame on them.
This world is starting to revolt themselves for the sake of better life and future for themselves and their future generation. In Ukraine, it’s chaotic where dozens of people die and hundred of them are demanding the government to cut ties, economic and political ties with Europe. Venezuela citizens tired of “Chavismo” leadership by Nicolas Maduro, opted to protest along with opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez demanding freedom of speech, better quality of life and cut the food shortages that leave families not able to put food on the table. In Thailand, the citizens wants a simple request to kick Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra because he’s influenced by his rich brother former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra. Yingluck priorities were to bring back his brother back to Thailand, something that it’s citizens are against it from day one.
But, wait a minute here? What’s happening here in the States?
Everything is “fine” and “dandy.” There’s nothing going on here besides, the chaos and the corruption from the government influenced by the rich elite for decades where everybody who works hard is punished by the huge unfair amount of taxes from home tax, income tax, sales tax, insurance tax, everything is taxed from the womb to the tomb. Followed by insane and unfair rules and regulations that can render the citizens unable to draw protests, riots and revolts. What happens to the Bill of Right and their Amendments? Not everyone remembers it.
It’s a shame that even ME can’t remember the Bills of Rights, study it and adopt it. And people don’t know how to defend themselves in cases that the government is trespassing our rights and duties of citizenship which is doing right now. Americans are out of focus right now, where it’s better than to write than to draw a fist defending their families and their future generation against tyranny. It’s a shame that this country has endured so much and all we’re doing right now is watching TV, eat chemically processed foods a la “Soylent Green,” working more to receive less and struggle for another day. What the rest of the world sees us? That we like live like this even to have a probe up our ass. It’s unfair that all of the sudden we just simply do absolutely nothing to have our pursuit of happiness and a respectful balance of government without banking, religious interference. But in the meantime, what are we the people are doing?
Check this out! Sophia Stewart, an African-American woman won a case against the Wachowski brothers for copyright infringement in a six year dispute. Steward in 1986 wrote for a magazine ad for a science fiction script that the Wachowski brothers were trying to make it into a comic book. Sadly, she didn’t received calls or mail from it, instead it was copying her idea for the blockbuster film “The Matrix.” So, that’s why she decided to follow suit against Warner Bros. and Wachowski brothers and won last year. The media was kept under wraps until the blog “Racism Is the White Supremacy” posted it on Monday.
There’s a lot of stigmas against Black Women that affect them negatively in all areas, and this is a positive example that when Black Women make ideas, they shouldn’t be shunned, deprived or fooled into achieving success. Stewart is a great author that if she was white, she would be credited to be the creator of the Matrix, not the other way around. Sadly, when you go to a bookstore (and not necessarily on Amazon) there’s a huge lack of African-American female authors from non-fiction to fiction and they not receiving the credit they deserve. Sophia’s determination and drive encourage Black women to follow their dreams and defending and protecting those dreams against thieves that can destroy their hopes and success. But the road isn’t all cleared still, there’s still haters out there having mixed reactions about the case and still have this idea that Black Women can’t write not even a sentence.
I’m so glad that amid all odds she found her deserved justice. I hope other Black Women will be inspired to write stories that can be as good as any other mainstream author. They could be writing scripts for movies or tv shows without fear of stealing their ideas.
