Committed To the path

It is amazing just how things seem to become uncluttered once a decision is made. Yet at the same time, things rise to distract you from your chosen path.

I have been blessed in my life to have as some of my closest friends some very independent and freethinking women. They have looked at society and have challenged many things we, or more specifically, myself as a male, take for granted.

Often times in discussions I have things are raised that I was not aware were even issues.
In such cases I find myself defending the status Quo, feebly I must add, and after a time I realize that they have a very valid point.
What this has taught me more than anything is that perspective is extremely significant. What you might take for granted or not even consider, is, to someone else something of great concern.

Take for example the Question of when a woman gets married. From that point on, the unit that she has joined will forever be identified by the man’s name.
Now Society has accepted this, and I think most women don’t consider this. I must admit I never gave it a second thought until the other day, when Elva spoke about it on Fame.
Why should she not be recognized as a part of the unit in the name? Why is it, who she is should cease to exist? Why is it that in marriage she is the one that has to go change her name, yet the man gets to sit pretty?
All interesting Q’s that most dismiss, but valid enough to make us think about how matriarchal our society is.

Mind you that is just one example, and not every woman will have that as their pet peeve, you have many other issues that have been raised.

At times like those, I often joke and say, “Not my problem, I’m male”. And that’s simply because what else can one do than acknowledge that these issues exist. Often times I think I am liberal and open minded and that I am a strong supporter of women’s rights and freedoms, but every once in a while One of my female friends sit me down school me to another set of issues that I am totally oblivious to. All I can do is to show respect where it is due.

In any case I must say hats off to these ladies who challenge what society forces on them constantly. More power to you, and I mean it. I also thank you for opening my eyes to how you see the world.

Any way times almost up have to run. Will elaborate on some of these Issues later.

BTW nuff respect to 2 major contributors to this particular blog.
SM and MW
Others I have big up as well but these 2 individuals have been most radical in their views and have challenged me to change my thinking significantly.

I Watched Fahrenheit 9/11

After watching this much-hyped documentary I was shocked and horrified that the American Public had re-elected this man after watching it.

I must say the Film has made me somewhat dissatisfied with the capitalist system of rule.
Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING bush did after 9/11 was geared towards putting money in his and his friend’s pockets.

I mean yes we know this, but before, when I said it, there was some doubt. At the time I did not have concrete evidence of this, it was pure, well founded speculation. Now my hopes/delusions have been stripped away.

People, the sad truth is America is run by money. By extension that means people who are stinking filthy rich, like the Saudis, own that country.

In the documentary it was asked if we thought the Daddy bush was more loyal to the US than the Saudis seeing that he is paid 400,000US per year by the Govt. as opposed to the 1.8bilUS the Saudis has invested in him and his friends over the past 3 yrs. Hmmmmmm that’s a tuff one.
From day one the bush family has been in bed with the Middle East, using America’s might to help the Oil Rich friends make money. Oh and even cooler is the fact they are major players on the boards of one of the defense contractors that provide weapons for the US military forces. And u wonder why both daddy and Son Wanted wars so badly?

You know why the US Govt. allowed the Bin Laden’s to leave the US right after the attacks; it was because Bush and his cronies new better than to bite the hand that fed them. What’s the worst that could happen? Nixon already proved that once you are head of state, as our dear beloved Prime Minister put it, “The Law is Not a shackle”.


It is frustrating, the world we live in seems designed to screw the masses so the rich can get richer, and we cant do anything about it.

But then looking at the election I begin to see the same trend playing out. Not only do the Rich run America, but they are organized in clans of families. Remember Senator McCain the Intelligent Candidate for the Democratic Party, U know, the guy with a spine. Ever wondered why he lost. At the Time a TV analyst said from early he was gonna drop out soon and he gave the reason; “Kerry has the backing of the Nixons and Clintons”. At the time I was wondering so what, how influential is that, well now you know.

But to be fair to the American people, as SweetSimone pointed out to me, the Elections were decided on the issues of God vs. Gay marriages.
That’s a tuff call, A spineless and fickle leader who wants to support Gay marriages, as opposed to a clear and decisive Retard, with big money connections, who has no problem with spending American lives to earn more money for his own pockets.
Any way I have to run. There is more I wanted to say but time is against me. To be continued at a later date.
