Morning thought:

You know what I'm tired of? No?

EXPERTS

Since the internet has taken over most peoples brains, everyone is an effin' expert. On everything. Physics to self help. To faxes. To brain salad surgery. To toenails. To the inner workings of sh!t Einstein pondered over. You can do a net or blog search on anything, and there is some cretin in Ohio who is the self proclaimed king of [Insert whatever dumb@ss topic you desire here] and has endless words to spout off ad nauseum about it.

So any EXPERTS please post here so I can rant on your sorry @ss...............

NO SMILEY, hehehehehehe..................... (fake laugh)

Kick An Expert For God Today!

Not just politics. People are suddenly legal and psychiatric experts. Moreover, the lack of compassion and insight is astounding.

And then there is toleration for other opinions. This is America people. You're gonna hear some different views than your own in this country.

And I don't mind instant when necessary. Cause all chocolate is good. :-)

some of us are psychiatric experts....lol

just i never blog....best to publish your reasoned ideas & research in legit publications, journals or books...also,if some of us don't like jackson,it is not a lack of compassion--merely people who differ with you--i try to be as compassionate as i can--i fail as most of us would,but not diggin' jackson is not exactly a lack of compassion--merely a difference of opinion--can you accept my view & still disagree--i have no problem with your view--i simply differ--so what? i still like you(& appreciate your parking tips for the GA show @ Blender very much) but,please don't suggest a difference of opinion implies a lack of compassion!!...& noone's insight is always correct---your,mine or another's--so what? we differ--all cool--why ascribe assumptive motives to one's actions?

I once trained with a martial arts instructor who believed that teaching women how to defend themselves and physically fight was the answer to rape, domestic violence and the abuse of women. I worked with one woman after another, one social worker and psychologist after another and one governmental official after another, who believed that the only response to domestic violence was to arrest the men and shelter the battered women.

All these people have done very very little to advance a real solution to the problem of intimate violence in America. You know why? Cause everyone wants a nice little compact solution that they can put in a neat little box and throw a little money at. It makes for a nice press release and provides people with a pat on the back for their good work, but has done little to prevent people from being the perpetrators (and victims) of intimate and sexual violence in the first place.

As for Michael Jackson, our idols and icons sure walk a lonely path. Just as a point of information, when that song Billie Jean was famous, more famous than anything the brothers and most people have ever attained, Michael had a paternity suit out against him and he and his brothers had many paternity suites out against them throughout their careers. Moreover, Michael Jackson was a philanthropist and did more to address the suffering and needs of poor (and black) children throughout the world than most non-profit organizations have ever done. He kept most of that work out of the public eye because he understood that small minded, stupid, mean spirited people would believe it was all in his pursuit of another victim.

I think Michael was a victim of the way America can't handle its own homophobia and sexually repressive nature and when ever faced with a person who just does not fit into the sexual norm, there is some weird sh*t that goes on. Plus the way the media feeds on almost everything related to famous people the past 25 years is a disgrace and should imho be regulated. Weather Michael did in fact perpetrate a crime was so irrelevant to the whole situation it was not even funny. I've never seen so much greed and pure evil as I did while I observed the buzzards that circled that man.

It is so true - A good friend is hard to find - and I hope that he did in fact have some in his lonely life.

He was a good man who tried in his life to advance the cause of peace, cooperation and understanding and while he surely made some mistakes, I dare every one of us to throw the first stone.

Mostly I believe his biggest mistake was trusting some people he should not have trusted. I also believe that the betrayals are what killed him (as well as fame). I actually met the guy back in 78 or 79. He was a very sweet, soft spoken young man who seemed shy but was quite poised with the recognition that he got, though he did smile when I told him I loved his music. He also said thank you like he actually meant it and had not really ever heard 8,000 people tell him the same thing. I don't think that young man ever knew anything about what it was like to be anything other than famous and a public figure and a monkey making machine. And that to me is really really sad.

Further, I am very disturbed by the early reports of the role of drugs in this man's death and probably in his life. Again, I fault the professions of social work, psychiatry and substance abuse workers, be they people who treat the issue or persecute the problem. Why do people so easily medicate their problems and why have we failed to educate people how to handle their problems in other, more healthy way?

Well, it would take a radical shift in society to truly address why people hurt them selves and each other. Very very few people have tried to answer these questions, regardless of their profession. But if we don't start figuring it out, and making those social and spiritual shifts happen, well, we are all doomed then aren't we.

LOL. Yeah the real deal brings me back to the old days - shoveling the snow off the city's sidewalks and staying home from school, only to go inside with mom warning us to take off our boots in the hall before she would serve me and my brother the scalding hot cup. Of course we had to be careful not to burn our mouths, which we always did.
