Wednesday – I’m So Over It!

Goddess morning Royals πŸ‘‘. First, give praise and worship to the all High.

SMOKING! I’m so tired of seeing it, smelling it, and choking from it. People who smoke have no consideration for others who doesn’t. I’m not a smoker and never has been, so I really don’t care for the smell at all, whether it’s a cigarette or marijuana. Why do it? It’s not healthy for the mind nor body.

The human body was not designed for the inhalation of smoke in the lungs. Lungs are only anatomically structured to inhale clean (unpolluted) air. The cancer-causing and mood altering drugs are in droplet from in the smoke. The burning of tobacco and marijuana creates a drug. Fire πŸ”₯(heat) creates a synthetic poisonous chemical combined with a transoil (synthetic) drug. Smoking in the presence of a child is abusive. The droplets in the smoke cause liver damage, DHEA hormone imbalance, addiction, decreased oxygen to the child’s brain and cancer. An adult who smoke in the presence of a child causes and forces some children to be a passive smoker. This kind of forced smoking is a crime and is destructive to the child’s health. Passive smoking is indirect and drugs in the smoke have a higher cancerous context of toxins and tar. The thick oily tar contains drugs and is addicting. Ironically, the tobacco companies lowered the tar in a cigarette. This caused smokers to smoke more cigarettes in order to reach the drug level they use to get from the tar drug of one cigarette.

The drugs in smoke weakens the lungs, liver, kidneys, skin, immunity and destroy Vitamin C. The smoke from a single cigarette destroys the Vitamin C content of an average orange. Vitamin C is vital in protecting children against dis-eases.

Smoke deprived the children as well as adult’s skin off clean air (oxygen). This causes premature aging. The chemicals in smoke aggravate asthmatic and allergic children. It irritates the sensitive mucous membranes (inner skin surface) of the nose. Children have an immature immune system; smoking is twice as destructive to a child.

The chemicals in smoke can cause skipped heartbeats, palpitations of the heart, nervousness, rapid heart rates, paralysis of the cilia (hair) in the lungs; toxins are absorbed, dizziness, shortness of breath, headaches from rises in blood pressure and pains of distress over the front chest. Smoke decreases circulating to the hands, feet and legs. The nicotine causes the veins to constrict (close) and this limits the blood flow to the heart, sex organs, and other vital organs. The female passive smoker undergoes menopause at a younger age.

Children learn by example. They imitate adult behavior. Historically, the original smoke eaters (nicotine drug addicts) were white. Blacks who are nicotine drug smokers are socially conditioned (engineered, seasonin) to do so.

The non-smoking adults and children can be partially protected from smoke by using a high efficiency particle air (hepa) filter or the electronic precipitator air cleaner, which can remove a few of the cancerous chemicals. The immunity can be protected from smoke with supplements such as Glutathione, Chaparral, Pau D’Arco, Cysteine, Vitamin A, C, E, B1, B6, Pantothenic Acid, PABA, Echinacea, Selenium, Bee Propolis and Zinc. Alkaline minerals, Phenylalanine, Betaine Hydrochloride and the herb Kudzu and Quassia can help curb the craving for the smoke. Tobacco and marijuana is processed with steroids, excessive amounts of estrogen, white sugar, ammonia, etc. Consequently, Vanadyl Sulfate, Progesterone and Milk Thistle need to be added to a treatment protocol.

With all that is causes to go wrong in your body, knowingly, you all still chooses to abuse it. Then someone comes along and wants to sue the tobacco companies, ever though it was their choice to burden their bodies with such poison. STOP COMMITTING SUICIDE FOR A QUICK FIX.

Redlining

  • Practice of marking a red line on a map to delineate an area where Banks would not make loans; most frequently discriminated areas were Black inner-city neighborhoods.

  • It refers to the denial of services or selectively raised prices to residents of certain areas based on racial or ethnic composition of those areas.
  • Banks would often lend to lower-income whites, but not middle and upper-income Blacks.
  • Redlining, today, is illegal and a component of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 speaks against racial-geographical discrimination.

Without anything but their life on the line, many people of color did what was necessary and right to live. They fought to the death so that we (people of color) could live how we live today. What are we doing to pay honor to their struggle? How are we re-paying them for their blood, death, and sacrifice? What are we doing to make a future for those who will come behind us? If you cannot answer these questions because there is no mark you’re leaving for your future generations, then the answer is nothing. We have to do better since we have more than what they had to make what we have a reality.

Saturday, Sit Down With Lady K.

Goddess morning Royals. First, give praise and worship to the all High.

We as parents, grandparents, great-grandparents are failing. We are failing the descendants that will come. We aren’t allowing ourselves to be the village and put our foot down so that they will not destroy what the ancestors fought so hard to overcome. We are allowing children to ruin not run the world. They are making messes everywhere they go and the future isn’t looking so bright for us. We can pray and pray but if that is all we are going to do then it will not work. Some of you is so worried about how it will look if you pulled a switch from the tree or a belt from the drawer, that you are allowing these children to run over top of you. I understand what Child Protective Services is for but I also know what labor and delivery was about as well. If you knew you were going to take care of them when why go through the pain of having them.

We seem to be so caught up on making the law do something that we as parents should have been doing from the beginning. We should have been teaching them morals and values, not shopping and selfies. Now all they want is technology and clothes with no real way of earning it. They expect you to break your neck, bank and ass to get it no matter the consequence or threaten you with I will get it myself. Then you will get this asswhipping with it. See you all got afraid and now you expect for someone else to clean up after you, but this is your mess so get your ass out there and clean it up. If it is too late then you must give your all to allowing the law to do what they are going to do, modern day lynching. There is nothing you can do about because if it was, you would have done something about it before it got to this point. Yes, they are going to hunt your child down, and lock him or her up, may even kill them depending on how this turns out.

No I am not saying all children are out of control but you as a parent know if your child is out of control or not. You know if your child is whipping your ass then there is no way he or she is being respectful out in the streets until they are a psychopath then you know exactly what to do. We know if our children are out of control just take a hard look into the mirror. If you are all about the party scene, hanging with the girls, never home even though you work, or just want to be their friend then yes your child, or children is out of control. If you are all about yourself then you are the problem and I can’t blame the child nor the children for your lack of parenting. No don’t just blame your parents because you knew what you went through as a child and you should have had enough of that and wanted better for your child or children. If you are blaming them then you haven’t learned a damn thing in your dysfunctional upbringing. Your children will be the direct replica of you.

Don’t cry for help if all you are giving is exactly what you are seeing. Growing up is a learning process and if you aren’t teaching them what you learned then don’t cry for help when they are making your life a living hell. Remember you did that already and now you’re doing it again, but this time as an adult, or what is supposed to be an adult. Now you are grown and no one really wants to be around you, it isn’t because you smell or anything, it’s because you are still childish and need to grow the fuck up. I bet you this they all talk about you behind your back, which is also childish, but they are playing at your game and not theirs.

If you want a future then I think it is time you take control of your present so that you can secure a future, if not then say your goodbyes now. These children don’t have a future if they keep on this path of destruction.

Freaky Friday – Watch For Snakes In Your Own Yard

Goddess morning Royals πŸ‘‘. First, give praise and worship to the all High.

Trust is just a hard issue for me. It doesn’t come easily as it doesn’t for others. It has to be earned in order for me to give it.

I trust no one who smiles in my face, while talking about another behind their back. I always ask, “did you tell them that?” If the answer is no I shit it down because you say the same shit about me when I’m not around. What I have learned is that people will play both sides to see which one have the most dirt to give on one another. The one with the most juicy dirt is the side the choose until the way begin and then it’s like they aren’t involved. That’s when they want to be a mutual party.

If you’re not careful about who you talk to and what you talk about; you could be going to war with someone you know nothing about. What’s worst is you never said half the things this person said you said. Just learn not to get involved in bullshit.

With that being said:

And I will witness the end of the current national nightmare!

β€œIn my life, I have watched John Kennedy talk on television about missiles in Cuba. I saw Lyndon Johnson look Richard Russell squarely in the eye and say, “And we shall overcome.” I saw Richard Nixon resign and Gerald Ford tell the Congress that our long national nightmare was over. I saw Jimmy Carter talk about malaise and Ronald Reagan talk about a shining city on a hill. I saw George H.W. Bush deliver the eulogy for the Soviet bloc, and Bill Clinton comfort the survivors of Timothy McVeigh’s madness in Oklahoma City. I saw George W. Bush struggle to make sense of it all on September 11, 2001, and I saw Barack Obama sing ‘Amazing Grace’ in the wounded sanctuary of Mother Emanuel Church in Charleston, South Carolina.

“These were the presidents of my lifetime. These were not perfect men. They were not perfect presidents, god knows. Not one of them was that. But they approached the job, and they took to the podium, with all the gravitas they could muster as appropriate to the job. They tried, at least, to reach for something in the presidency that was beyond their grasp as ordinary human beings. They were not all ennobled by the attempt, but they tried nonetheless.

“And comes now this hopeless, vicious buffoon, and the audience of equally hopeless and vicious buffoons who laughed and cheered when he made sport of a woman whose lasting memory of the trauma she suffered is the laughter of the perpetrators. Now he comes, a man swathed in scandal, with no interest beyond what he can put in his pocket and what he can put over on a universe of suckers, and he does something like this while occupying an office that we gave him, and while endowed with a public trust that he dishonors every day he wakes up in the White House.

“The scion of a multigenerational criminal enterprise, the parameters of which we are only now beginning to comprehend. A vessel for all the worst elements of the American condition. And a cheap, soulless bully besides. We never have had such a cheap counterfeit of a president* as currently occupies the office. We never have had a president* so completely deserving of scorn and yet so small in the office that it almost seems a waste of time and energy to summon up the requisite contempt.

“Watch how a republic dies in the empty eyes of an empty man who feels nothing but his own imaginary greatness, and who cannot find in himself the decency simply to shut up even when it is in his best interest to do so. Presidents don’t have to be heroes to be good presidents. They just have to realize that their humanity is our common humanity, and that their political commonwealth is our political commonwealth, too. Watch him behind the seal of the President of the United States. Isn’t he a funny man? Isn’t what happened to that lady hilarious? Watch the assembled morons cheer. This is the only story now.”
