Americans who can’t speak English

When I need to get my mind off POLITICS and other NEWS, I frequently put on INVESTIGATIVE DISCOVERY…it’s 24/7 of hour-long real murder mysteries.   MANY people are interviewed,  Americans who have lost a spouse or child, it’s really so sad, but fascinating.  I listen to so many of these people and cringe at their English.   Every single hour, all day long, some adult will say….

“It was the last time I SEEN him”…. or

“How many kids is gonna have to die..?”

“Him and me went to the mall……..”

“We done that when we seen we had to..”

As you know, language is more important than many think.  Language categorizes you, like it or not.   Good grammar says you’ve had more education than another person, it says you are aware of good grammar and, probably, that you’re a reader.  All good.    Would you hire someone in an office who says “The last time I SEEN him”?

I studied German in Munich and French in Paris.   The many German and French teachers always said “Speaking English is easier than other languages, but speaking good English is much, much harder.”

Man, even in AMERICA?!!!

I guess there is no solution to this, right?  How can teachers correct grammar when they’re teaching climate change and telling kids to put the knife away?

DIVISIVE? WHO IS?

We have horrible people destroying our history in various ways, threatening good people, damaging buildings, looting, promising to do worse.  We have a MESS.   They won’t listen, they feel they’re right and the rest of us are evil racist monsters.  They have no desire to calmly talk with any authority, they want to HURT, to get back, to make White Americans suffer for the past these White Americans were never involved with.

Trump speaks about this great country and his speech is regarded as DIVISIVE.   It’s he who’s accused of starting a CULTURE WAR.

Um.    W H A T ???!!!!!!    Who started a culture war?  who’s divisive?!

AND, by the way, these poor, oppressed monsters are very sad they’ve had to put up with us.   Anybody consider that WE are the ones put upon these days?  We are the ones being very unfairly labeled RACISTS!   WE are in our homes watching America destroyed on television?   Who is put upon?!!!  Anybody give a damn about Americans, Black and White, who are living good lives and don’t want anybody in America feeling ‘less than’ but want all to be successful and happy?

Imagine if we could all talk?   If cops could talk to the BLM people who actually think they’re all killers and that all good Black Americans must follow this Democrat fundraising arm?   Can someone ask a BLM leader how collecting money for Democrats who constantly dupe our good Black families is helpful?   A N D:

I POSTED THIS IN COMMENTS YESTERDAY AND CAN ONLY GUESS NOBODY READ IT BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT WAS TERRIFIC AND WORTH THINKING ABOUT; GOOD NEWS, FOR CHANGE?

I wrote this on Facebook’s post of Joe Collins, a terrific Black Conservative trying to beat Maxine Waters in her fight to keep her seat here in LA

“Oh, wait. I’m a very proud Republican. That means I should be racist, right? WHAT WAS I THINKING URGING JOE ON? (Smile…sarcasm, of course) I’m just so sad and so tired of being told I’m things I AM NOT. Go, JOE!!! I’ll work for you!!”

I GOT THIS ASTONISHING COMMENT which represents more Blacks than I think we realize:

Alicia Miller Z… you’re not racist! For the record, I’m very black and pro-black, but, anti-bullshit! With the 87 people shot in Chicago over the weekend, you notice BLM is no where to be seen! Apparently, black lives only matter when they’re taken by the police. Please don’t listen to ANYBODY black trying to convince you you’re a racist and that you should apologize for being born white. Until we stop killing each other, we don’t have anything to complain and protest about…

1619 or 1776???? YOU CHOOSE :-)

“Recently (1981), Woodson Center launched an innovative new project, a Campaign “1776” which is an assembly of independent voices who uphold our country’s authentic founding virtues and values and challenge those who assert America is forever defined by its past failures, such as slavery. We seek to offer alternative perspectives that celebrate the progress America has made on delivering its promise of equality and opportunity and highlight the resilience of its people. Our focus is on solving problems.
We do this in the spirit of 1776, the date of America’s true founding.”

In CONTRAST to the New York Times group, “1619” which asserts that…

“In August of 1619, a ship appeared on this horizon, near Point Comfort, a coastal port in the English colony of Virginia. It carried more than 20 enslaved Africans, who were sold to the colonists. No aspect of the country that would be formed here has been untouched by the years of slavery that followed. On the 400th anniversary of this fateful moment, it is finally time to tell our story truthfully.”

This 1619 “...aims to reframe the country’s history by placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of our national narrative.”

Z: Yes, folks…Bob Woodson, Black scholar and amazing guy, has a group commending America for all its goodness, and the White NY Times has decided that our REAL founding was 1619, when the first slaves arrived, and we’ve pretty much done nothing good since.

IMAGINE.

HOW DO WE MOVE UP…and not MOVE OUT?

I had brunch here with a friend Friday morning.  She said she needed to air her thoughts…finally getting to the point;  THEY MIGHT MOVE.

She is in her late Thirties, as is her husband, and they have 2 teens, a boy and a girl.

They manage apartment buildings, including the one in which they’ve lived for about 20 years.  They do a lot of other things, too…  ANYWAY:

Her son went to Idaho with his grandmother this week and somehow ended up in the Governor’s office after the Gov signed a PRO LIFE bill.!  (Grandma has connections, apparently)   So there’s the son shaking hands with the Gov….a proud moment, right?  Except he put it on Instagram and has rec’d, so far, 2,800 negative, hateful comments like “Your mother should have aborted you”   or “What kind of parents do you have who’d promote your kind of thinking?”    WAY more hateful ones than those, too.   Many were from students at his high school.  His sister is fearful now because she goes there, too, and isn’t as articulate as her older brother is in sticking up for himself.

Every day, my friend tells me, they find a homeless white man on their property, and this is an upscale neighborhood.   Her husband sends her a text every day with a picture of the  latest homeless White guy sleeping next to the trash bins, adding ‘Is THIS White Privilege?” 🙂  As we were talking at my condo pool, she got  a text and showed it to me.

She has had text and phone chats with long time friends who think she’s terrible now for not buying into the SYSTEMIC RACISM rant….it’s breaking her heart, frankly.

The whole thinking behind BLM is scaring my friend and her husband because they’re Christian Conservatives, DO believe in the nuclear family, and do love Black America and understand how BLM is NOT designed to help Black America but more to intimidate White America…which will help no one.

SO, they’re thinking of moving……….I asked “Couldn’t you DO something about all this HERE?  Try to work toward ridding our country of all this?” (Her husband is quite an activist on various subjects), and they’re thinking about it, because they LOVE L.A., but…it’s not easy.

Welcome to the new American family……Teens fearful, friends hateful, neighborhood threatened, and you are told to SHUT UP, YOU ARE A HATEFUL RACIST.

These people couldn’t BE less racist.

WOW.   This isn’t just California, so PLEASE don’t go there..it’s silly and untrue.   This is AMERICA……let’s talk about it…How do good Americans get through these days of hate and provocation of guilt, etc.?

Sunday Faith Blog

Let’s all pray for anybody who fought and died for our country and for those still fighting today.   Please include law enforcement in your prayers because if they aren’t fighting and dying for our country, I don’t know who is.

“Father God, We pray for all those who faithfully serve to keep, protect and preserve justice, hope and love. May you encircle them with protection, and post angels to watch over your sons and daughters as they face danger. We pray that they would have great wisdom and judgement. Help them to work as a team, and care for each other. Lord, come lead them in their prayers and answer them clearly, that they might be channels for your peace, ambassadors of justice, and bringers of hope. May you guard their hearts with you love, their minds with your truth and their bodies with your power. We ask all this in the wonderful name of Jesus. Amen. (a prayer of intercession for those in the armed forces from http://www.lords-prayer-words.com)”

Independence Day

I have always said HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!  And I won’t anymore…I’ll be saying HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY because the date isn’t the important thing, it’s not the point, it’s what it MEANS TO US.

Wikipedia says “Independence Day (colloquially the Fourth of July or July 4th) is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the Declaration of Independence of the United States, on July 4, 1776″

Tell us what YOU this INDEPENDENCE means to YOU……..on any level.   We all get that we celebrate the Declaration of Independence today, but take it a step further…what has INDEPENDENCE in AMERICA meant to YOU?

HAPPY DAY!  ANYBODY GOT FUN PLANS?   I DON’T 🙂

BLM………and ActBlue

I’ve been thinking how Black Lives Matter is duping Black America BIG TIME.  They’ve done absolutely NOTHING for good race relations;  in fact, they’ve nearly destroyed them, sadly.   NOBODY likes violence, nobody likes being told they’re racist, nobody likes people demanding anything of them.

Democrats have screwed Black America forever…they lied about the Civil Rights Bill, saying THEY SIGNED IT…Ya, Johnson signed it after Republicans tried for years to get that done.  The Klan was Democrats, the mayors and governors of our worse states/cities are Democrats, Democrats tell Black America horrid lies, including how they can’t make it in this country and it’s because of White America.    The Sharptons and Jacksons of the world are the WORST RACISTS…  Wasn’t it Jackson who said “There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps… then turn around and see somebody white and feel relieved.”    Sure, because he’s inspired kids not to do well in school and FLOURISH, like we want ALL BLACK CHILDREN TO DO, no, he’s told them they can’t, he’s blamed Whites, he’s set this miserable stage on which BLM has become the STARS.

Click on BLM and click on DONATE…it goes directly to ACTBLUE, a Democrat money raiser.  Nothing for Black America.  NOTHING!     Trump uses this word too much, and often inappropriately, but I’ll say it now;  IT’S A HOAX!!!    RedState calls ActBlue “the activist arm of the Democrat Party”….yup.

So, BLM is NOTHING but a Democrat fundraising machine dressed up to look supportive of Black America.    Not a Hoax, A TOTAL JOKE.

And George Soros……Plenty of articles on connections with him and ActBlue but nothing definitive enough for me to site it here.    He’s well protected.

WE ARE NOT.  And NEITHER is BLACK AMERICA

“I was having FUN!”

THIS ARTICLE GOT ME SOMEHOW…..I think it’s important that everyone in this country reads it.  When the governors say “OKAY, open up,” it doesn’t mean “OKAY, go anywhere you want to, no mask, no  limits to what you can do….JUST DO IT!”   No, don’t!   It means BE CAREFUL if you’re going to be with others.

This guy’s story is IMPORTANT.  If I was a grandparent, I’d send this to all my single grandkids of partying age.  My own internist has a huge practice and has had only 5 patients so far who’ve tested positive…5 party boys who didn’t wear masks, who lived like there’s no virus.  They all recovered quickly and well.

This 30 year old in the article didn’t do that well.………his story is important , particularly his listing the symptoms and the way they hit him ..2 days, 4 days….AND the drug which made him feel better. Mostly, that drug opens the airways, who wouldn’t feel better, right?

My own friend in Phoenix felt “70% better,” after 3 hideous, painful, fatigued weeks of virus hell, due to hydroxychloroquin given to her, finally, one morning.

Pass this story around if you know someone who might be acting stupid.

Don’t wear your mask at home!  Don’t wear it in the car (someone joked that wearing your mask in the car is like wearing a condom to go to bed alone!!! HA!)!   But wear one if you’re around people……BE CAREFUL!
