I'm Back

That's right, I'm back.

Starting the Master's program was a bitch and a half.   It's like being in (what was in 1983) 7th Grade of junior high school again.

I have to get used to all of these logs, and the expectations are higher-like you have to maintain a B-average-or you're on Academic Probation.

It's a little freaky, but I think I will eventually figure this out.  Hey, I've done it before, right? 

That's where I've been for the past nine days, as I have been busting my ass catching up on homework while trying to figure this new system out.

The stakes are much higher-and they have to be.  Remember, I'm supposed to be a fucking professional.

Oops!  Blew that one right there, didn't I?

I've got more blows to the head now than when I started in 2013, but I still think I can pull this off-mainly because I don't have a choice. 

Of course, I'm going to keep on writing.  This is who I am.  I'm not a professional with a tie.  I'm crappy at playing games, but I need a back up.

Teaching American History in the age of the Trump regime (especially with Net neutrality now being history) is going to be a scary thing, but I might have to do it for a while in order to get back to where I was before this seizure took me down.

Sure, I'm worried, but I still record everything-and I now have to rely on information outside of the United States even more than before, because the Trump regime is really cracking down on censorship.  I remember when my ex-wife and a former friend of mine disposed of many of my old newspapers-which went back to the 1990s.  They said they figured that it would be in history books.  However, I knew that the history books were going to begin to lie at some point-which is why I wanted to keep the newspapers in the first place.

I now find old news old the Net, copy it and put it to my One Note.

They should have listened to me, but....

And now, it's happening-just like I thought it would.  I just hope it's not going to be as bad as I think-but I'm not holding my breath on that one.

Oh, in case any of you are wondering, the vote at the Federal Communications Commission was 3-2... and Independents say one of the reasons they 'vote their conscience' is because one vote supposedly doesn't make much of a difference.

Uh-huh, right.

The Religious RIght Is Trying Tod Destroy the Americans With DIsabilities Act!

So, the Republican Party has decided to move forward with gutting the Americans with Disabilities Act, a law which was signed by a Republican president in 1990.  Of course, he was trapped by a Democratic Senate which would have overridden his veto, but it was a midterm election year, and George H.W. Bush needed to look good to the American voters.

Republican Senator Rand Paul of Tennessee favors local control.  However, we always see the consequences of the same when the federal government isn’t looking over your shoulder.  Desegregation laws were challenged in the South to the point at which we had forced bussing in the 1970s.  Now with Adolf Trump in the Oval Office and both houses of Congress controlled by the Nazis, there’s a very real possibility that this law could be repealed.

This law affects me, and it affects my niece.  I have learning disabilities and need extra time.  My niece has mobility issues from cerebral palsy.  Who cares about some idiot who drove over a bomb in Iraq?  Fuck him, because he did that to himself and believed the propaganda he was fed.

Furthermore, he didn’t find a God damn thing-except for a girl in Haditha to rape.  That’s about it.

What about children who want to learn and need more time? 
What about children who have trouble with physical education because of their mobility issues?

These people are more important than some gung-ho jackball who made America look stupid in the eyes of the entire civilized world.  Let his family pay for his care and let’s get these truly disabled people (developmentally disabled and learning disabled) into the workforce so that they will become productive citizens.

Those of you who go to church and vote Republican are required by the Bible to help those with developmental disabilities.  1 John 3:17-18 is a very good example of the point. 

Just Remember what happened to the rich man who refused to help Lazarus in Christ’s parable, and you know where your eternal destiny lies if you don’t change your party affiliation.
