The elderly belong in Prison!!!

JailHappy

My Grandmother is 96 years old and is being treating horribly in a nursing home located in HyannisMA. She is a retired Veteran who served our country and received a medal of honor for her help in cracking codes from German submarines… real story and you can find out more by reading about:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cryptanalysis_of_the_Enigma

The fact is she is unable to walk, suffered two strokes, and is basically being ignored as she sits serving a horrible unjustified sentence of torture in a wheelchair. I am furious at the care she NEVER receives when she should be treated better for being who she is!!!

So I have an IDEA!

This is what you get in prison?

~ Clean fresh smelling hallways

~ Shower everyday

~ Video surveillance in case of problems

~ Three meals a day

~ Access to a library

~ Computers

~ Television

~ Gym

~ Basketball court outside

~ Doctors on site

~ Free Medication

~ Pay NOTHING from your Social Security Check

~ Clean rooms and bed sheets

~ Packages delivered from loved ones, with money and baked goods

~ Visits more than once a month

This is what you get in a nursing home?

~ Shower every third day

~ Cold meals and small servings

~ Hallways that smell of dirty diapers and urine

~ Bugs growing under your bed

~ Things stolen or “Misplaced”

~ Stuck in the same position for days in a wheelchair

~ Better care if you’re from money

~ No care if you’re a Veteran

~ Rent out of your social security check of $5000 monthly

~ Given drugs to shut you up, but not help the problem

~ One Nurse on each floor with over 200 elderly people

~ Attendants that never answer the phone

~ Health aids that don’t do anything, but check their Facebook

~ Lights off at 7pm

~ You never go outside, just roam the hallways crowded with wheelchairs

So why don’t we DO THIS!!!

Place the elderly in prison and the criminals in nursing homes!

Problem Solved!!

The elderly are our founders our very foundation that brought us to where we are today, why are we allowing them to suffer when they should be exaulted!

Read this NOW, or you will be run over by a mail truck!

We have all received those asinine chain letters at least once in our lives, you know the ones that tell you if you don’t forward this letter to all your friends in the next 5 minutes you will die!

 Really now!?

 That’s interesting when I have hundreds if not more that I have no intention of forwarding to anyone, and what you know, I am still alive!

 What is a chain letter anyway?

 A typical chain letter consists of a message that attempts to convince the recipient to make a number of copies of the letter and then pass them on to as many recipients as possible. Common methods used in chain letters include emotionally manipulative stories, get-rich-quickly pyramid schemes, and the exploitation of superstition to threaten the recipient with bad luck or even physical violence or death if he or she “breaks the chain” and refuses to adhere to the conditions set out in the letter. Chain letters started as actual letters that one received in the mail.

 There are some letters that you have the opportunity of receiving in school that read: “Pass this note around the classroom, or I will bash your face in!” Well in this case you just hand it to the person closest to you and hope that no one is waiting for you after school!

 I have read over and over how I will be killed after sunset, stabbed to death in the bathroom, run over by a mail truck, killed by a dozen stampeding horses, and one of my favorites sucked into the toilet the next time you use it!

 Even though we find this humorous the reality of this is, it creates a lot of fear in kids who are not really educated on what to believe. Then you get those children that refuse to use the bathroom, are suddenly afraid of horses, fear playing after sunset, and kids screaming, running in the opposite direction of the mail truck!

 On a serious note there are many things people send you that are not necessarily great to send to naïve people.

 Then you get the opposite spectrum, where people send you those inspiring letters to pass on to all those you love saying: send 12 people this hug and God will bless you 12 times, call 8 friends tell them to look out on there front step for a present from the Lord, say the lords prayer 10 times as you look up at the heavens and God will rain down money, walk ten blocks and return to your first step, you will find the answer to your problems.

 So, is this true?

 No, of course not people just have no lives and feel that in someway they are helping us out with giving us false hope or just scaring us half to death!

Even though I know that this is a big pile of BULL DOO, DOO, sadly kids end up believing too much of this and it is our jobs as parents to inform our children that this is a hoax and not to be superstitious.

 My own daughter received these when she was younger by school kids on paper (before they started over taking Facebook) and she was scared of what would happen if she didn’t pass it on! Now she knows better, but are parents really watching out?

Sometimes these chains can cause many emotional problems and insecurities in children and cause false hope in adults.

 Have you ever received an e-mail saying that a person is sharing their fortune, and all you have to do to receive part of it is to forward the e-mail to as many friends as you can? So, nowadays, a chain letter may take the form of an e-mail, an instant message, a posting on a friend’s social network profile or a text message. If you learn how to recognize them and what threats they pose, you can go a long way in protecting your internet security, both at home or while mobile.

 Beware and educate yourself on types of chain letters! 

Sick Child: They tell a fake story of a sick child who needs to raise money for an expensive operation. They ask you to donate money and share the kid’s story.

Petitions: The letters may ask you to sign an online petition for a new law sustaining a social cause. You have to submit some personal details and forward the message to other people.

False Warnings: They warn you a virus is circulating over the web, threatening to crash users’ operating systems. They urge you to strengthen your internet security by installing or deleting certain files on/from your system.

Rewards of Money: They lure you with get-rich-quickly pyramid schemes. You are asked to enrol other people into a scheme, promising you a certain amount of money for each new recipient you add to the chain.

Urban Legends: Examples: Rich billionaire shares his fortune if you share the news; Katu Lata Kulu steals your soul if you don’t forward her story to your friends; Ted Bundy will find you and kill you if you don’t repost/send his story to 10 friends.

Superstitions: Threaten you with 7 years of bad luck or even physical violence or death if you refuse to re-send the letter to other people.

I think it is safe to say the next time you run into a chain letter toss it in the trash or mark it as spam and move on….Don’t worry I have a feeling you will wake up tomorrow!

Divide and Conquer the “OREO”!

Oreo

When I think of how many divisions there are in the world it makes me think of the general nature of most people.

Imagine living in a large gated community with no managers…. Then some day someone out of nowhere wants to make changes to a place where people have become accustomed to there routine of things for years. This person acting as new manager starts moving things around leaving the people puzzled to where things used to be for so long, starts gating the entrance and questioning everyone who comes in: “What is your reason for being here?” Then this person asks you and everyone living there for money for changes that none of you new about, only to be forced to accept. You all were living peacefully and minding your own business when suddenly someone thinks they have the right to barge in and push their opinions on you and everyone around you!
Does this sound like GOVERNMENT and RELIGION?
We all live in a GATED WORLD!
The first 13 colonies were conquered and taken from innocent people, and we live in freedom right, thinking we own what was never ours to begin with! The government is all about power, conquering, and gaining complete control!
Ever since the beginning of time we have been told how to live, act, think, or not to think, what to believe and how to divide!
Our news, schools, magazines, churches, television, government and more have been twisting the minds of many saying that we live in FREEDOM, when in reality we are bound to the ideas and opinions of others!

Don’t believe that you too are being manipulated?
Answer these with YES or NO…..
Do you eat breakfast in the morning?
Do you go to church because you want to?
Do you work for fun?
Do you pay taxes on your land?
Do you get the flu shot every year?
Do you agree with the deaths in IRAQ?

If your answers were more YES than NO you are being manipulated!
Just because the sun rises in the morning doesn’t mean you must have breakfast!
Just because everyone else goes to church doesn’t mean you have to!
Just because you have the only job you could get, doesn’t mean that it was your choice to have!
Just because you “OWN” your home doesn’t mean you can stop the government from taking it!
Just because the government says: “Get the flu shot” doesn’t mean that you need it!
(Personally I have never got the flu shot and well I am still here, you believe that?)
Our “UNITED NATIONS” promotes world peace, and that is why the war in Iraq still continues unnecessarily!

Let me tell you how I feel we should live….
By taking an OREO leaving it together taking a little bite and enjoying it’s flavor all together, versus ripping it apart sucking out the frosting licking what left on the outer cookie and throwing it away!

Okay the point to my METAPHOR, we humans are the OREO as whole, Government and Religion suck the inner parts of our unique beings leaving just an empty outer cookie that no one wants anymore because, the very filling (our Spirits) that made us so appealing is gone, becoming Conquered and Divided!

Pink and Green Elephants with Wings

How do you know for a fact that what you have been taught is the right thing?

How do you know for a fact that YOU happened to be fortunate enough to be raised in the RIGHT church, with the Right values, and the RIGHT way of thinking?

How do you know that you found the RIGHT place to be, the RIGHT GOD, the RIGHT path?

Nothing makes me shake my head more than people saying:

“I know this is right, because I feel it in my GUT!” (OK, it could be a stomach ache!!!)

“I know this is right because the lord told me!” (SAY WHAT????)

Or my favorites:

“My parents believe it, therefore it must be true, because that’s all I know?” (I think you need to educate yourself here?) ( You need a little culture 101 perhaps?)

“Because I know that’s all!” ( Ok, did a little birdie tell you??)

“I did my research on Google!” ( OH? So you traveled back in time with DR. WHO!)

How can you say you did your research, when there is no possible way of traveling back in time to ask the actual person who REALLY knows what happened!

How can we believe that scientists have found real evidence supporting scriptures in the Bible when many of the evidence is buried far down below the ever evolving earths crust formation that many people are unable to survive going that deep to get back to the time that those supposed events happened. The earth has changed and continues to change, water covers more surface than it did back in the time of B.C. Divers are unable to dive to deepest parts of the ocean in fear of being crushed by the weight of the water and there are so many undiscovered parts of the earth’s core that we could be making the wrong predictions. Now I am not knocking scientists, because I know they are more reliable at giving actual information than most! But they do not know everything and are still trying to find a lot more answers, which they may never find!

How many times have people predicted the “end days” for decades the same thing; “God is coming, are you ready to receive him?” I grew up with ministers saying the same thing, and where is GOD? They tell us in about four thousand years, but that no man will know the hour or day. First there will be a man claiming to be GOD then a tribulation and those who believe in him shall not perish, but have eternal life and those who do not will burn in the lake of fire!

Ok, that means our flesh will be gone, in another words we “WILL PERISH”! We will become spirit beings with GOD, right? How can you believe that when the 4000 years have past and there is no evidence what so ever that anyone has died and become a sprit being without flesh!

Why? Because you cannot prove something you have never seen and are only speculating based on information written in a BIBLE, by Man, from a GOD that we have to have “faith” to believe, really exists!

Then you have those people who say I just believe it! (Believe WHAT?)

You can’t believe in a ghost if you never saw one, you can only give the benefit of the doubt or believe that the person who saw one needs a major psychiatric evaluation.

You can’t believe in ZOMBIES, until you hear a news story of a naked man eating another man’s face off in Florida, THEN YOU BECOME A BELIEVER!

How can you believe a bunch of information that has been, altered through time, manipulated, full of missing parts, with many he said she said stories of belief?

If someone said to you: “I saw a pink and green elephant with wings!” Would you believe it? When never in your entire life have you ever seen such a thing!

Then you get people saying well maybe there was one and it fell into pink and green paint and someone put fake wings on it! (Now these people remind me of those salesmen that sell you products and can convince you into believing anything.) These types of people are so desperate to believe in something that they will find a way for it to be believable! (Talk about being manipulated!)

AND THEY CALL IT FAITH!

I’m not saying FAITH is bad, but it doesn’t always apply!

Having faith does not mean that you can move mountains, or millions of dollars will fall from the sky, that a person with cancer will live, or that 1000’s more children will not die in Iraq!

Faith is nice for some, because it helps them move forward in a world that they would rather be dead in, giving them some sort of inner peace keeping them holding onto false hopes and never ending dreams of a world that many generations to come will never see!

Faith works for those who believe they can lose those extra 50 pounds by summer, or those who believe they will graduate from college with a masters degree in less than four years, or those who believe they will go to Dubai when they retire, or those who believe in being able to buy there first home in 5 years…..this is having faith in yourself and definitely applies!

I am all for people believing in something that they can truly obtain with hard work and dedication, but believing in something that cannot ensure a great outcome just sounds risky to me!

IF ONLY!

If you could rule the world, what would you do first?

Having that much power could definitely get to someone’s head leading them into evil when they probably started with the greatest of intentions.

Everyone unless they are mentally disturbed want a better world that is fair, just, and peaceful, but sadly it just isn’t that way!
Not everyone is on the same page or even in the same book!
Some fight for power, control, and popularity. While other fight for peace, tranquility, and another meal.
Many of us are famous for saying “IF ONLY” I had a chance to change the world…. and I can see it now, they get the crown the golden scepter and then say; Uh what do I do now?
There are so many things wrong with this world that I am afraid no one would no where to start!
Is there a solution?
I wonder what would happen if each one of over 7 billion people who populate our planet (except babies of course) did one thing to change the world, we could do way more than the United Nations and United States could ever even think of doing!
Think of this…. If we designed a global foundation that could be collected to help the needs of poverty stricken countries, provide medicine, give more to scientific research facilities to help with finding more cures at a faster rate, aid in preservation of our lands, help animals from going extinct, create factories to help purify the air and water instead of adding to the contamination, build cars only run by solar light, and much more…. each one of us would donate one dollar to this global foundation every six months which would sum up to about 14billion dollars a year. This money would not go to the government, not be used in war and definitely not go to give prisoners more comforts!
Don’t get me started on prisons!!!

Ok so you guys are probably thinking we already pay taxes and SocialSecurity why pay more?
Well that money you never see!
Yes, the governments build bridges, buildings, fix roads, pay public schools, shelters and medical care.
BUT…. Most of these projects are not really helping anyone and are minimal care versus the care we hard working citizens deserve!
I know and hate to admit that this may never happen, but I can keep dreaming, can’t I?

20130809-141404.jpg

Could I get a little HELP, here???

Whatever happened to the thought of helping someone without the intension of receiving something in return?
Why is it that the majority of people that help do it out of pity or under terms and conditions?
Is there in existence anyone out there that genuinely cares for the well being of their fellow man?

Two photographs stained my memory a while back, one of them a white child and a black child hugging, both no older than three and it read below:
“These children were NOT born racist, they were taught by society and religion.”
The second photograph was a picture of a bald, tall muscular man wearing a red muscle shirt, full sleeve tattoos, blue ripped jeans and chains hanging from his belt. Next to this picture was another photograph of the same man at work in his white coat and stethoscope…..to my surprise, he was a doctor!

Now those photographs painted a powerful picture of a horrible fact on how our world operates and views each other! If we were never taught to believe in other people’s HATES we would never be such a non helping society!

This got me thinking not only is there a problem with acceptance, but there is a major problem with the way people decide to help others, by factoring in status, economic class, last names, sexuality and much more.

SO I HAVE A FEW THOUGHTS YOU CAN PONDER:

WHAT IF EVERYONE IN NEED CAME TO AN EXTREMELY RICH BLIND MAN, AND ASKED FOR HELP? YOU THINK EVERYONE WOULD BE HELPED, UNTIL HIS MONEY RAN OUT? 

HOW MANY PEOPLE DID A THIEF GO TO FOR HELP, BEFORE THEY STOLE? 

WHAT WAS HAPPENNING IN THE LIFE OF YOUR CO-WORKER BEFORE, THEY LOST THERE JOB, ENDED UP LOSING THEIR HOME, AND STARTED SELLING DRUGS?

We are so quick to judge, and slow help a person out, that might be more like us than we want to admit!
When I personally was in need of help, the people that came to my aid were not even close to what I expected. Being brought up in a Christian church I had my judgmental ways of thinking and boy oh boy was I mislead!

It turned out that my “Fellow Christians” were the last to help, and the very people I was taught to avoid and otherwise not associate with, do to conflicts of belief, ended up HELPING ME???
Well this left me with my jaw on the floor, feeling quite ridiculous for thinking all I was told to believe, was not even close to reality!

Out of all the generous, unselfish, beautiful, humble, people that helped me 90% of them were Catholic and the other 10% were complete strangers with little or no money, but the BIGGEST of HEARTS!
It seems that those who are less fortunate are moved to help more than those who have more than enough too help, WHY?
Those who have nothing, value what they have and how hard they worked to obtain it, therefore appreciating it more than someone who was handed money since their first words were spoken. 
I am in no way saying that those who are upper class didn’t work hard to get there, but I notice that these people are more likely to turn you down in fear that by helping you they will end up broke!

Sadly my friends gave me excuses, my family basically said: “If you stayed in the church this would’ve never happened!”…..OKAY?

My own church that I grew up in wasn’t inclined to help either!
My situation is basically another blog entirely, but my point remains that, help is becoming extinct more than the animals..

So…. how did society become so self-centered and unemotional to the needs of other’s?
I hate to say it, but man’s teachings, separation of culture, religion, economical class, racist cults, greed, along with a long list of other reasons, is why people just don’t care to share!

Society is made up of many different clusters of economic class:
Here are a few……

~Lower Class (people who are looked down upon for having very little and barely being able to eat or sustain humble living conditions)…….

My Lower Class Definition: HUMBLE, Kindhearted people with a story, who are willing yet unable to help others or themselves when in need, but miraculously find a way through working their fingers to the bone.

~Middle Class (people who work extremely hard to be able to pay their loans, while they live in a somewhat comfortable apartment or small home with high mortgage)

My Middle Class Definition: Hardworking Overtaxed people who literally bust their butts off to have what they have and know the importance of saving and being responsible, wanting to help and usually end up helping, while being afraid of falling behind and not being able to catch up again!

~Upper Class (people who live ultra comfortable lives having more than one home. A business or two run by employees as they vacation 3 to 6 months out of the year and spend summer’s in private homes in exotic locations)

My Upper Class Definition: People who accuse others with lower economic class of being ignorant and uneducated without knowing their story, therefore not helping as a part of teaching them a lesson. Investing money and sharing a very small percentage to charities as not to be looked upon badly by society. They tip small, spend largely and could care less about humanity or our crumbling world.

NOTE:
I AM AWARE THAT NOT ‘ALL’ UPPER CLASS PEOPLE ARE THIS WAY, BUT I AM SPEAKING IN GENERAL, BECAUSE THE MAJORITY DO NOT HELP, UNLESS IT BENEFITS THEM!

I challenge you to invite in a stranger for a bowl of soup, drive up to a homeless person without judging and hand them more than just change, give that lady who is walking home in the rain a ride, open your Eyes, NOTICE, Heart, LOVE, and Mind, OPEN. Help thos that are less fortunate, no matter who they are, where they came from, what belief’s they have, or what color their skin is.
Let’s make someone’s life a little brighter this holiday season, and every other day of the years forever and always. Peace and Love, FancyJ London
