WORD SALAD for week ending 14 January 2018: > > > TWO OF LIFE’S ROADS DIVERGED IN THE WORLD AND SORRY I COULD NOT TRAVEL BOTH. But, now I understand the results of the one traveled.

12 Jan

Me and my mother’s (“90” in June 2018) generation have given a great deal in the last 90 years to better the American Society ?

1.  EQUAL RIGHTS FOR BLACKS:  This led to affirmative action, bussing desegregation of schools, even if blacks or whites did not want and college or university school quotas. As I see it, the Whites and Blacks of this nation were just getting integrated and new highs were being established / obtained such as President Barack H, Obama, Adam Clayton Powell,  General Colin L. Powell, Guion Bluford, Douglas Wilder, Alice Walker, Clarence Thomas, Mae Carol Jemison, Carol Moseley Braun and so many more examples of that might have been if not for the Illegal Migration of Thirteen (13) to eighteen (18) million other undocumented and illegals into this country of the United States of America and all the problems ( Illegals having children though their the parents were not citizens; but, children are due to the U. S. Constitution’s; 14 Amendment as they the children now citizens qualify for Food Stamps, Medicare, subsidized rent…so.)  it brought once the 2008-2009 recession and job displacement of the black community as well as white commenced.

2.  EQUAL RIGHTS FOR WOMEN: This altered the economics of my time; as women, entered the workplace and displaced the one paycheck family; that led to prices going up as the realignment of the economy commenced. Things were based on one income; then with the coming of two paycheck families, the economy was changed to reflect a two paycheck family. I am not saying this was incorrect, but rather; in a recessionary economy with one or more of the two paychecks families losing their job; it is taking a toll on the family and societal structure.

3.  EQUAL RIGHT OF MALE / FEMALE TO SERVE IN THE ARMED FORCES OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

4.  EQUAL RIGHTS TO AN ALTERNATIVE LIFESTYLE.

5.  ROE vs. WADE 401 U. S. 113 (1973) – ABORTION: 1.2 MILLION ABORTIONS IN THE UNITED STATES EACH YEAR OF LEGAL UNITED STATES INFANT CITIZENS. While 13 to 18 million illegals are allowed to infiltrate our United States of America, Boarder’s?

6.  ASCENDANTS OF THE COMPUTER AND ASSOCIATED TECHNOLOGIES. National Security Agency (Phone, e-mail, exedra)

7.  THE GREAT SOCIETY OF THE 1960’S: Started by; President John F. Kennedy and passed by President Lyndon B. Johnson, this provided; Aid to Dependent Children / Mothers, Food Stamps, rent subsidies, Medicare, phone subsides, cable subsides, rides to and back from appointments, free child sitting and free college tuition’s with ride provided.

These Programs are being used to leave a relationship and are now a crutch towards divorce, breakup of the family and have morphed away from their original good intentions. Male and female are having multiple children; by different partners, due to the morphing of the good intentions of the, “Great Society of the 1960’s, launched by President Lyndon B. Johnson and who’s intent and goals were to eliminate poverty and racial injustice.  And, not to create one parent homes and inequalities.

WHY ? ?

1 Jan

Why, are illegal immigrants; being, given a United States Judicial Court Review; prior to being removed from this country ?

  1.  They are non citizens of the United States; and, at what financial cost to the  taxpayers ?

2.  The United States Congress and Senate should repeal this process; and, do away with             the special Administrative Lawyers Judges that are appointed.

3.  Currently, the Administrative Judge have a back log of about 1500 and is increasing.

4.  These cases can involve years to adjudicate.

What will be the cost to deport millions of illegal immigrants – whats in your wallet ?

BLAST FROM THE PAST: LEWISTON, MAINE TAXPAYER’S; PEOPLE’S INITIATIVE ON CANAL ACQUISITION. This initiative failed to get signatures required and was passed by the Lewiston, Maine City Council – VOTE THEM OUT 11 / 2017. They had the power to put it before the Taxpayers; but, did not ?

22 Nov

Have brought forward; with the help of the Lewiston, Maine Taxpayer Community an initiative to halt the City of Lewiston, Maine acquisition or transfer of the Canal System by Brook field White Pine of Canada (BBWP of Canada) to the City of Lewiston, Maine.

I am in the hopes that the Community will endorse my efforts to collect 990 registered Lewiston, Maine voter signatures required to have the issue placed on a ballot for Vote at a to be determined date; by the City of Lewiston, Maine.

It is my assumption that this is an untimely attempt; on the part of the BWP of Canada to unload a Canal that will require more maintenance after the projected maintenance rehabilitation by BWP of Canada prior to transfer to the City of Lewiston, Maine Taxpayer’s.

It is also, my resolve that this issue may be revisited in a better City of Lewiston, Maine financial climate.

At the day of voting; I, will be seeking to gather the 990 signature required to get issue to the ballot.

VETERANS FLOCK TO TOGUS, MAINE VETERANS HOSPITAL TO RECEIVE A RANGE OF SERVICES; Sun Journal Lewiston, Maine of 21 October 2012

10 Nov

Mr. Charles Arthur Soule of Lewiston, Maine age (59) gets a free medical checkup from Dr. Robert Show of Caribou, Maine on Saturday during the 15 annual Veteran’s Stand-Down at Togus Veterans Administration Medical Center. Mr. Soule, was previously a United States Naval Trained Drug and Alcohol Command Representative for a Carrier Early Warning Squadron VAW-122 while in the Service of this Country.

Mr. Soule, is another example of a disabled veteran whose life was turned around by the Veteran’s Administration.

In 2012, when he was attempting to aid a young lady off of Crack addiction, he was accosted by her Dealer; which, left several of the bones in his face broken and a eye sinking into its socket.

Sent to Roxbury, Massachusetts Veterans Administration Hospital; doctor’s rebuilt the right side of his face.

Today, even Doctor Show at the Togus, Maine Veterans Administration Stand-Down could hardly tell that Charles had even been injured due to the procedure of operating from the inside of Soule’s mouth.

Mr. Soule stated that the Doctor that did the operation in Massachusetts was of Chinese decedent speaking Australian English and whom was named; Dr. Gooey.

While, on the operation table after meeting the Doctor an hour earlier or so;  Mr. Soule stated that while on the operating table as the operation was about to start that he had asked the Doctor to please make him look like Keanna Reeves of Richard Gere; as the operating theater broke out in laughter.   And, as the Anesthesiologist said,  “Mr. Soule I will be placing you under now”;  Mr. Soule stated, “I will see you on the other side; I mean, when I wake up” and laughter ensued.

The Doctor had stated to Mr. Soule that he may have to cut the corner of the right eye and along the right ear; as, to allow for expansion of the skin to complete the delicate operation.

To Mr. Soule’s surprise; the , cut were not apparent on the bandages being removed.

8 Nov

Those, years were 1969 through 1973; at the time, ninth grade was completed at an entirely different School, Webster School in Auburn, Maine and I was now attending Edward Little High School, Auburn Heights, Auburn, Maine.

It became a  banner years for me as I entered the start of my Junior year; and, completed my Sophomore year at Edward Little High School; just keeping up with the curriculum, with not too much going for me and then I was elected to the position of Junior Class President; in my Senior year; I was elected as Senior Class President, President of the Student Senate, winner of the Daughter of the American Revolution “Good Citizen Award”, Delegate to the State of Maine Boy’s State, President of the Young Republicans and President of the Sacred Heart Parish Auburn, Maine; Christian Youth Organization and selected to the Interact Club all this at a prominent academic school.

 

At the time, the Vietnam War was raging and of the 27 million draft age young men between 1968 and 1973, 40 % were drafted into military service, and only 10 % were actually sent to Vietnam.  This group was made up almost entirely of either work-class or rural youth.  Combat deaths were over 45 thousand by 1973.

There, were a lot of others who were not as fortunate as I;  who’s spirit was left behind in the Jungles of Vietnam (41 thousand); in, a Military Police Action and who were lost; but, are never forgotten; as,  the years go on.

 

It was not for some years; that, I understood a phase that Mr. Alfred Saviagnano, Principal of Edward Little High School, Auburn, Maine had stated to me; “YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT WE HAVE DONE FOR YOU”.

The others were Assistant Principal, Class Adviser Mr. Wallace A. Laehy and Guidance Councilor Mr. Carsley, office staff and councilor / teachers.

You see,  I had been to six (6) schools prior to Edward Little High School and had been late to start first grade due to my birthday being in March.  Then, there was the fact; I had been left behind / back twice (2) once in the first grade; and, another time in the third grade.

The facts were that I was twenty (20) years old; when, I graduated from Edward Little High School and that when I register for the draft at the Lewiston, Maine Post Office at the age of 18 years of age; I, could have been drafted at anytime.

Can you see; that, by allowing me to remain in school at the age of eighteen (18) to twenty (20) years of age and not allowing; my, drafting into the service of the United States Police Action in Vietnam; and, these WWII War Veterans allowing me to graduate from Edward Little High School, Auburn, Maine at TWENTY (20) years of age possibly saved my life ?

They, allowed me to be; and, I was the first (1): “no child left behind”.  These MENTORS and TEACHERS were saving my life.

I volunteered; and, left in December of 1973 with Orders from the Department of Defense stating, ” Needs of the Service come First “; with, my sister’s crying and mother showing a stern resolves.

I served honorably as my father did in Korea and World War two and thought of it as an obligation and right of passage as a citizen of this “Great Country”; winning, Military Citations Awards and 5 promotions in three year and was “TOP Soldier” at a joint command of American and British Armies; until discharged in 1979 and now receive a compensation of $1075.00 dollars a month from the Veteran Administration with Medical; which, I am  “grateful for”, at the age of going on 65 year old from a grateful Nation who did not forget me; you, the American Citizen.

GOD BLESS YOU; MY BROTHERS IN ARMS; MENTORS and TEACHERS and YOU THE CITIZEN OF AMERICA.   I hope this humble person; naive in youth, am worthy of your sacrifices.

A WISH; FOR, MOM .

And, to have this action occur on a school day so that representatives of the Lewiston, Maine school system and children my attend.  With, and so my eighty-nine (89) year’s old young mother and second father my attend to hold the oath of office swearing in Bible and travel by day light.

“New Year Resolution’s; 2016, 2017 and now 2018.”

29 Oct

The following is my New Year’s Resolutions for this year.

1.  That, I shall not be a hypocrite; for, I am no Archangel; and,  hypocrite this is a part I know all too well.   2016

2.  Not, to define the whole; by, the miss doings of its parts.  Examples; condemning an ethnic group, religion, business or human for failures of a few or part of the whole.   2016

3.   And, not to allow years of turmoil….to define the rest of the meaning of mine and your life.  But, rather correct my life and move on with hope for humanity.    2016

4.  Correctly, interpret responsibility for one’s actions.   2017

5.   I will not expect the generation to achieve anything that my father and myself obtained in our life.  Such as moral value, work ethic or job opportunities.  This, would be to much to ask of them and society values have been turned upside down.   Drug Overdoses should be considered “Suicides” to escape their realities.  2018

Like the recent turmoil throughout the Nation; in police and civilian confrontations; as the media drives a story to the wrong conclusion and initiates a firestorm of actions against protectors and the innocent.

It is my contention; that the Nation Press / Media, overly contributed to the fanning of flames, mistrust and violence towards our protectors.  And, should be held to the highest account under the laws of the United States of America.

Freedom of the press; or, journalism for journalism sake, ratings or financial gains shall and should not be tolerated!

There can never; be, an excuse for Media over reporting faults hoods or misrepresentation of the facts; to, drive to incitement to national violence against the innocent of our Nation.

As, the New Year 2017 approaches us; let, us remember that all you need is a “Safe place to sleep”, “A meal a day” and “Your Health”; to be happy.  For all else; is, “extra.”

And, give thanks that we live in a “NATION” that provides this.
