The DNC Wants to Lose the Presidency

The DNC does not want to win the presidential election. That is why they are doing everything to stop Bernie Sanders from winning, the one candidate who is a lifelong liberal who wants free colleges, Medicare for all, money spent on social goods and justice, a man who wants to get out of the US endless wars around the globe, a Jew!  

They want to run people who are on the side of the wealthy, who regardless of what they say (mostly lies) or avoiding the issues of a real national income and universal voting, of affordable education and medical care and …. These people will be totally be rejected by the poor, most blacks and browns, most people with an un-payable college debt, most people with health issues not covered due to preexisting conditions and co pays and deductions. These unpopular candidates, one of which will be chosen to run for president in place of the only popular candidate, will drive people into non-voting or re-electing Trump as an act of rage.

Recognize that this herd of millionaires and billionaires or hoped-for millionaires who are running the election, will be financially rewarded if Trump is elected and will lose if it is Bernie. There  it is folks. Those rich folk who are running things are not there for most of us

They cry, they shriek he cannot win. But he is already winning now. Their local stooge for blacks at the DNC says the blacks will not vote for Bernie but they are already moving  towards him and what he offers. They say he is too old but plenty of them are quite old and showing it. They point to his recent heart attack. But what about our current president’s time in a hospital, his overweight, his funny hand held at an angle. What about his heart?

So why do they not want this man, this winner to run for them. It is very obvious if you allow yourself to see which DNC Democrats are on the corporate payroll. They are paid via Citizen’s United and every other way to put money in their hands  if they do what corporations wants. And what they want and need the most at this time is war.

Bernie does not want war. The corporations want war until the whole world goes up in flames from global warming, until there is not another place to bomb. If Bernie wins there will be a huge fight in congress. He and the few anti war people against the rest. But at least and for the first time, the differences will be mentioned. This Centrist man, a caring human being is only standing for what most of the world wants: free schooling, free health care, air to breathe and food to eat, parks that are surviving not full of dead trees and dying animals. A beautiful place.

But in the United States, place where only prisons are our number one job, our tax money pays for tanks and bombs and missiles. The DNC is afraid Bernie will win and their corporate filled Christmas stocking will be empty. The DNC recently thought of a new way to stop him. It added the requirement that the candidate be a good Democrat.

Snap your fingers he’s out of the race.

And then, all the needy people will not bother to vote. Not any other Democrat will win. We get Trump again which secretly fill all the DNC wishes. More war. More money to the banks. Fewer  social services. The one percent takes over. People die of illness that could be cured if there is medicine to treat them. Democracy dies.

Should We Forgive Mistreatment

Many people say you should never forgive those who have hurt you. That is not entirely an unwise statement but needs serious reshaping. First and most important, you need to understand yourself.   Forgiveness does not mean you erase memory. It also doesn’t mean that memory chases you forever like an enraged beast. We are afraid of forgiving anyone because we do not understand the consequences.  Forgiving doesn’t mean that you give in to the kind of person who wounds you over and over again in the same kind of way. It doesn’t mean becoming more vulnerable to attack. Forgiveness does not let you be a victim.

You need to uncover why you surrenders to mistreatment. Even that you seek it out. This compulsion comes from mistreatment during your early years. For example, I had a lying, bloviating father who spoke with fervor and would attack me if I questioned him in any way. Fast forward to adult mistreatment. I tend to give in to people who present themselves as experts and are hurt if I do not agree with them. The more I give into that person the harder it is to stop. I feel inexplicable fear. It is like sliding into emotional, physical and financial hell. It is the hell of my childhood.

Know your wounded inner child. See how the people you allow to wound you resemble the original wounding one. When such a person gets into the I am going to hurt you mood for doing or being this or that, take courage. Force yourself to act courageous. Call attention to what they are doing and if they cannot stop or even do not understand what you say, it is time to leave. Probably for good.

It is like a dog that bites the extended hand. Of you know the dog is a biter, do not extent your hand.  Do not reach for the dog in hope the dog has changed. If the assaulting adult seems to like or even love you after you surrender to the kind of wishes which do you some kind of harm, even to your spirit, what kind of love is that? Expecting a close relationship with an assaultive person has nothing to do with forgiveness. It is accepting misery as your lot in life.

You learn how far to go with a person who intends to hurt because they have done it before. Your spirit, your everything will be damaged by surrender. Your boundaries in terms of what you will allow need to be based on experience. Do not apologize for setting limits. Restraint is your right and privilege.  Forgive the biter for attempting to bite because they are a biter but do not forget that they bite. A proper distance creates forgiveness. If the attacker will not accept your restraint and attacks you for it, feel free to take your leave. Forgiveness is not slavery.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are We Merely Animals

How many times have I thought about the way we humans (forget sapiens) find ourselves in a fight with other sapiens let alone caught up in an official war? Yes, in this modern era, the big banks, the big money people make the most money out of war and so are always breeding for or starting a fight or pretending most often to have been attacked with the only solution being to attack back.

Putting the the warring banks aside, what about the innate tendency to fight the beings we call enemy. If we look at other animals, the larger ones, they are usually ready to put aside their pleasurable activity, their wandering and eating and screwing, to fight when they feel endangered.

We don’t like to think of ourselves as animals. Animals are below us to be harvested as food or cleared out as interlopers in whatever we have intended for the land we claim to possess. But no, folks, we are of the animal kingdom, Our animal group through breeding carries certain genes which effects our thinking but more often, we are shaped by the social training of our society. If the major theme is “take” what you can, you think you should take. If the social theme is mistrust and defend yourself against imagined enemies, you will carry a gun and likely shoot first.

Other animals remember the ones that have attacked and attempt to avoid them. We humans take an  attacking position because we have been attacked and are afraid,  but more often because the supposed enemy or the land they dwell on, has something that we want.

Another feature we make much of is the ability to hold grudges; also, to envy those who have “more” than we do. It is advertising that makes us feel needy. Our training leads us to desire and to take. The rich take from the poor within the same society as we have seen in the latest give away tax reduction for the 1 percent. The poor innocent people who do not make decisions are easily persuaded to fight the enemy if only to protect themselves. They do the dirty work for the ones that profit from it.

Those who give labels call us a more advanced species, but looking at the totally destructive outcomes towards which so many of our efforts are directed, is this true? Are we really so advanced? I cannot endorse this label when the direction is our downfall. Would you?

 

 

Dreams Always Have a Message

She had a terrible painful dream. She was with her now deceased husband looking young and vital. He was rejecting her for being unloving. Said he didn’t love her anymore. Suddenly she was plunged into her greatest loss which returned her to the grief of childhood with rejecting unloving parents. Then she  was on a subway train, in a car with no destination.  He got off at a stop and she followed him. He pitied her and gave her a large heart shaped pin and filled with precious stones: rubies and sapphires turquoises. She said, give the pin to the next woman that you love. He didn’t take it.

She awoke in a state of misery. Felt abandoned.

She remembered how she changed into an angry martyr as her husband became increasingly deranged by frontal lobe illness. She treated him with the same hostile, rejecting behavior as her mother regularly did to her. Even her voice changed into that cigarette deep tone of dislike.

She had given into the internalized persona of her hateful mother and critical father, each time to come back to herself and apologize, each time renewed with a husband who said, “I take the good with the bad.” But to mistreat a dying man she became two women, the woman he loved and the one he detested.  Oh noooo. Her hateful parent-self was not forgiven as if it ever was. When not experiencing “splitting,” he hated that part of herself and loved the loving. Now the two selves stood apart.

Why did she dream it? Yesterday, she had been critical of her gardener’s aggressive and speech disabled son. He was deliberately disobedient. Took hold of her binoculars and ran off to use them where they could easily drop and break. He banged into her with his water bottle until she yelled at him to stop. She set rules in an angry voice which didn’t work. He enjoyed getting her goat.

The dream was telling her that that the mistreating part of her would never go away. It showed her how it created her greatest loss.

The heart-shaped locket filled with precious jewels was not given to the attacking woman she had become when terrified by his debilitating illness. It was given to the woman she had mostly been before. When she offered it to give to the woman who came next, that woman was herself. It was that part of herself he deeply and completely loved. The pin was heart shaped because it represented his true love for her.

Every dream is trying to tell us what we need to know and do. Every dream attempts to bring us to the land of love.
