Happy 13

My niece just turned 13 today, and she has already overcome a lot of crap.

Because of her mother's smoking and substance abuse, my niece experienced a stroke in utero.  She's still struggling from the effects, but has made tremendous progress in that she has figured out how to outwit her cerebral palsy, which is the reason why parents who don't push their children who have disabilities are directly to blame for their child's poor outcome as they enter adulthood.

As one who holds a degree in psychology, I hold the school of thought that anyone who gives up on their disabled child should serve a life sentence in solitary confinement.  After all, that is what the parent imposed upon their child for either giving into their rebellion or simply not trying at at all.
Hey, I had meningitis which either should have killed me or left me with a low IQ, because everything was affected-including the brain stem.

Did my niece's mother help her with her occasional and physical therapy?   Well, let's just say that her therapists noticed regression.  However, since the mother has removed herself from her daughter's life, my niece has learned how to dance, taken piano and violin lessons and is a first soprano.

My fiancĂ©e also has cerebral palsy, yet she gets around.  She becomes more independent as time progresses and, like my niece, has learned to cook.

My niece's plans are to an Ivy League school-and her mother kept the pacifier in her mouth.

 If this doesn't prove that parents of developmentally disabled children are directly responsible for any lack and that they should be prosecuted for the same, I don't know what does.  However, let it be stated that all therapies should be paid for by the federal government, as it is in the federal government's best interest to see to it that all citizens are healthy from the beginning or after a tragedy.

Happy Birthday, kid.  You're going to be whatever you want-and no one can deny you.

Freedom Will Win and Bigotry Will Lose

by Jim Rousch

Don't feel sorry for the religious bigots who try to enforce their version of Sharia Law, known as The Holy Bible, down our throats like a Republican shoves his penis into a male intern, because Jesus would consider losers like Jeff Sessions a hypocrite.

The guy is going to Hell anyway, not just for his hatred against the poor, but because he is has been known for decades as a racist.  What does that Book say about bigots like Sessions?

Matthew 5:22 King James Version But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

1 John 4:20 20Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen.

Even I have a few problems here, as I hate conservatives so deeply that it's hard to to describe. However, conservatives have judged me throughout my life without knowledge, so my reasons are completely justified.

You weren't there when my life was destroyed, so you can't judge me anymore than I can judge someone who is on trial for murder-even if they are guilty. I understand why children snap, but back to cases. The point is that this nation was never religious.  

Please explain slavery and genocide if the United States of America was ever a Christian nation and then read the last line of Article VI in the United States Constitution.

Okay, I'm not Eddie Van Halen, Randy Rhoads, or Dimebag.

Who cares?

After what my brain has experienced, I'm lucky that I can do any of this.  I don't remember exactly how long it took me to learn how to do this, but I did-and I still can.  This is an important statement because the late Malcolm Young of AC/DC lost his ability to play altogether.

I'm lucky in the fact that I can still play.  And to you parents out there, I don't want to hear that your developmentally disabled child can't do it when the real problem is that you are too lazy to push your child to be better than he is if you would just take a caffeine shot and get your fat ass off of the couch.

Just Give The Benefit of the Doubt and Mind Your Own Business!

This is yet another fun thing which people with traumatic brain injury have to put up with from a paranoid American society.
