I’m angry.

The laws that run this country allow people to abuse other people they think are beneath them. Our prisons are a glaring example.

We know these laws need to change, but those in power don’t want it to change and not enough of us do more than shake our collective heads and go about our business. We’re too busy we tell ourselves.

Over the years men in power have changed the laws to increase their riches and that of the corporations that run the prisons, as well as the prisons that enforce them. While enforcing their laws they have no problem breaking any other law that gets in their way – and then lie about it.

To accomplish this, religion is often used to control the masses. This is nothing new. Now they are changing the law that used to prohibit preachers from politically swaying people from the pulpit making it seem like it is God’s own direct words that instructs people how to vote.

Trump thinks he is the greatest President America has ever had. This is one of the “great” change Jims he has prided himself on doing for the people ( for himself) ever since he became a new baby Christian. Did you fall for that? Now they will be able to continue to abuse the very people they are preaching to. Have we learned nothing through the centuries?

Just as slaveholders did for hundreds of years, beating, starving and raping their property, thinking that being owners allowed them to treat people in the most heinous ways, they continue. That mindset hasn’t changed from then until now.

What is it that makes a supposedly God fearing – oh that’s right. You rarely hear that phrase anymore, “God fearing” because its all about the love now, isn’t it? Do you think it’s okay to abuse people for profit?

Do you approve of what Trump’s wall stands for? He needs for Americans to have only contempt for Hispanics and only his wall can save us. Do you believe they should be imprisoned so corporations like CoreCivic and Geo Group can suck as much money as they can from their families on phone calls alone? Do you think they only wanted to come here for free handouts? And who gives a crap about their children? How many people believe that garbage? Wave your MAGA hat if you do.

Did you learn the lesson? Only think about yourself. Put a wall around yourself and harm anyone you think crosses the line. The golden rule we learned as children in Sunday School, “Jesus loves the little children. All the little children in the world,” unless they try to move into your neighborhood. The Golden Rule only applies to the supreme white race loving other supreme white people.

God is no longer to be feared. He only loves, loves, loves you. He is only concerned with ways to bless you. There is no fear of punishment. Why, because too many people think God lets them off the hook simply by asking for forgiveness. Its not that simple. You reap what you sow. The bible says so 13 times. You get back what you dish out. It comes back and you pay.

Today it brought about this rant. I read that a tired female cop, after a 14 hour shift, tried to get into another man’s apartment thinking it was hers and when he opened the door she repeatedly emptied her gun into him until he was dead! DEAD. It is no excuse she was tired, but it will be used. We don’t kill people when were tired, or you shouldn’t have that job. Her key didn’t fit. That should be clue #1. What does his family do now? His mother lost a son, just like every other black mother who has had their child killed by a cop.

I read about this hate every single day. I’ve had enough. People, ordinary red blooded, heart beating people who love living, who have hopes and dreams, teenagers, business owners, bbq grillers, children walking home from playing in a public pool, airbnb renters, shoppers, children walking home from school, people driving to work, people who think they are safely in their homes, people in the yards, parents who love their children, people in restaurants, university graduates, people stopping for coffee – The List Goes On – are accosted, arrested, beaten to the ground, choked, murdered by cops and white people using “stand your ground” as justification for murder.

We lock up the rest and pretend they are worth nothing. It doesn’t matter that many were forced to plead guilty. The ones who weren’t? It didn’t matter.
97% of everyone arrested end in a plea deal. Only those who can afford an attorney get out. Because bail can’t be paid people often spend years in jail waiting. Families are destroyed. Homes lost, jobs lost and being a parent is lost – but the corpoations make a killing. They can only get out by taking a plea, by admitting guilt. Public defenders tell you additional charges Will be added if you don’t plead guilty.

Is this okay with you?
