May Confidence

Whether one supports a hard or soft Brexit withdrawal from the European Union for the United Kingdom, to paraphrase, Rush Limbaugh, I hope it fails, since I wholeheartedly support a second referendum on the subject, am convinced most English are suffering from buyer’s remorse, after having it pointed out to them, what has helped keep the peace in Europe, and by extension, the whole world, all these many years, meaning, such cooperating organizations like the European Union, has meant, ‘peace in our time’. Its been two years since the United Kingdom voted to leave the EU, but what I know of time, the planned departure date of the 29th of March 2019 is just around the corner, is fast approaching, with all the planning needed for such a venture, it may already be too late for any meaningful alternatives. Prime Minister, Theresa May is fighting off a very hidden ‘no confidence’ vote in the House of Commons, if won or lost, the affect would set off an arrested stall on any concrete decision on Brexit, to leave or stay, or may even kill it altogether, setting up voting options for the next Prime Minister and another flock of members of the house to ponder.

Warning Lesson

An adventurous modern-day homesteader came upon some land surrounded by a lusty green forest, cleared a plot, decided to build a home, was soon followed by other home builders, followed by supporting businesses and all the amenities that make up a civilized community. Then as if overnight, that once robust green forest, due to climate change, became bone dry, twiggy, overgrown with dead wood, rather than abandon their investment, stayed on, hoping for the return of the forest lust, in spite of realizing living there was like being surrounded by gallons of drums of a flammable liquid, threating to ignite at any moment…

Politician and Journalist

Politician, is one who deceives, outmaneuver others for personal gain, and disguise such actions as spontaneous journalism, by way of talking points, or something just like it with each appearance on television while hyping the media of everyone’s mind.
“Ignore my youth hair, you know it’s not real”…
Today, appearing on American television everywhere, there are more faked dyed, blond dyed, phoney dye heads on the female, than ever appeared on the heads in the history of all the female heads that ever graced the commons of all whomever dwelled on the Scandinavian Peninsula, when will the American people, especially its women, grow tired of this fraudulent appearance, an assault on their personage… as farce? Answer: When will we grow tired of all the fake dark dyed heads on the aged male of the species, which is, in code, means, never, since they are in full control, likes things to appear just as they are, incased in fraud and deceit, as the king masters of this profitable marketing phenomenon, when asked, the average woman on the street, are quick to offer up, my husband likes me this way…blond dyed, greasy lipped and all…in high heels too…

The Great War of Wars

It was extremely hard for the most intellectual among us to even be able to comprehend, thinking, it must have been some great theatrical farce, not what would later be called The Great War. After all, was it not true, most of the great governing authorities of the then known world, civilizations, if you will, of Europe were ruled by those that were related either by culture, language, blood, wealth, marriage, or land ownership, and have been so for centuries, what in the name of the gods, could have set them off, releasing their armies to be at each other’s throats. It has often been stated that WW1 rivalries continued long after this war ended, only to lay sparks for another, WW2. Looking back, some in wonderment, how the death of a single person could cause such a conflict enveloping the whole world in such pettiness that so many did not even know of its luminous existence, until its bright light blinded them from any logical sense of thought, much like the clearing of a whole benched team, reacting to a scuffle taking place on the other side of the playing field, the true cause of which is unseen, what is known, it involved a teammate, and that was enough to rush off into the fight, the war. Teams not even playing that day, but belonging to many loosely associated leagues, found themselves encased, enveloped into the brawl of unknown origin, but fight they must, and so fight they did. By the end of the war, some empires expired only to be replaced by states based on nationalities, what was not considered at the time, nationality formed groups can prove to be even deadlier then empire federated states of pre-WW1, but that discussion is for another time. However, I will write this, the ‘migrant crisis’ in Europe, and the ‘migrant crisis’ in the Americas, are both deeply rooted in asylum seekers from failed states banging on the doors of the more prosperous nations who, having turned their backs on them, could spark an ethnic war of the haves vs. the have-nots, like I alluded to, is for another time. But, after WW1, what did emerge was the organizational concept of a talking body, a League of Nations, that failed, however, it did open the door to other successful talking bodies, The United Nations and other likeminded international trading frameworks, in 1957, The Common Market, became the basis for The European Union comes to mind, that have kept the peace all these many years. A lesson not learned from the past will surely be repeated, visited on the present, with every thought of the disinvolvement of a Brexit, allowing cross border trading pettiness and currencies to rear its ugly head again along with another war. Here is a very simple assertion, who would go to war with a nation that owes them money, are acting as their banker with loans and financing, who’s products has become a staple at home, the cross-trading corporation of many nations has made many nations, healthy wealthy and wise, made a foolish one that has never been taught, learned, war history and its many causes. As an aside, Inquirer.net, Ronnel W. Domingo, wrote, “The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) is moving further closer to creating a common market…” And with all I have explored above, I humbly rest my case, and invite you to research the many now open causes of past and future wars…

Rolling Back The Years

Do you dye your hair because you are an age denier, or to preserve some mystical place for yourself in the market place, seeking or maintaining employment, who do you think you’re fooling?, by so doing, are able to roll back as if by magic, the dates on your birth certificate, or are you one of those by simply sniffing the air can detect female centenarians in the nearest nursing home, plan an invasion, submitting them to a very tortuous, time erasing make-over, to include hair dying, a facial, an organic full body treatment in a tub of cold oatmeal, for the rejuvenating effect, of back, chest, arms and legs, let’s just call it what it is, ‘the works’. At the conclusion of which, leave for home feeling much better about yourself, having done in your eyes, a good deed stacked up to last a year, meanwhile, that centenarian can’t wait to get back to her old normal self, wash off all that youthful falsehood, returning to an aged old woman, after being for a short period of time, becoming, engaging in a youthful fling of someone else’s fantasy, as if they were playing with a full size living, breathing doll, is that what you would want for your old grandma in retirement? to look like somebody’s play thing, playing the part of a dressed up stressed out, ‘look-alike’ teenager.

“Too Close For Comfort”

Any and every television program that feature a lot of women, one can expect to see someone’s perception of what a woman should look like, no Afro-Centric textured hair, but long streaking blond dyed hair, or a shade of hair color not currently found in nature, long false eyelashes, with smoky eyed make-up, greasy red lips, and if the feet are in view, the highest of heels. Now, it was not always this way, once women were fainting in the streets because of tight suffocating corsets warn to achieve the classic hour glass figure, thankfully most women have now been allowed to graduate to a more modern day form of appearance, much like what was described in the opening of this piece, and of course next year, who knows, a more tortuous garment may find its way into our faddish look of the then modern-day woman, until then, let us feast our eyes on what is currently the offering, enjoying it now, more or less, depending on one’s point of view and current sense of fashion, being ruled by a morbid sense of vanity, good, bad or simply, indifferent to excellent good health standards that does not include toxic chemical hair dyes applied directly to the naked scalp, so close to the central controlling nervous center of the body, the brain.

In This Climate of Low Fashion

I often watch and is very fond of Judith Sheindlin, Judge Judy to most of you, I watch not for the small claims litigation, many may turn out to be frivolous, but for the grass-roots styling of the women and their hair, even before the garment is chosen to be warn, for the most part it’s the hair styling, for these women, this televison appearance is a lifeline, a way of continuance, a life altering event, will go out of their way to make of it, the most, and to strike an earth-shattering appearance. The shear assortment of hair dyes and wigs can only be found in the warehouses of a theatrical costum supply company, that I find will soon morph its way onto the heads of every female television actress personality and televised news rooms. A fashion-conscious woman in an outlandish hair style stopped on the street, if asked, how she came by such hair styling, may reply, it was first seen on Judge Judy, or on the Wendy Williams television show, often not fully sure of which, but is sure it was far ahead of its time when first seen, which is the reason it was chosen. In this Trump era there seem to be a dramatic uptick in blond dyes and wigs, taking the affair of a clownish appearance to a higher-level of acceptance, and of outlandishness. For some old timers, it’s a headscratcher that dark roots seem to be promoted, when once it was supposed to be hidden, it’s all a part of the new openness, that hair dyeing is no longer fakery but a fashion statement on to itself, as if to say, ‘girl’ you know this ain’t real’, they both then start to laugh. And with such openness, especially among female television journalists, it’s a wonder that nobody, except this blogger, is reporting on or even mentioning this farce, which begs the question, when was the last time any branch of the media dared to report on themselves, it would be like an anchor turning to their co-anchor, criticizing the hair and make-up of their partner in their appearance in this phenomenon, all the while appearing equally as loaded with culpability, it just ain’t going to happen, anyway, not in this lifetime…
