What The Hah Hell!

Yes, you are looking at it right. It is a moment in TIME when something is said or an action has been taken and it is so unbelievable. It makes you step back and take a deep breath and really look at the person, place or the situation.

The gears in the brain begin to rotate faster, the jaws will tighten, ones heart rate speeds up, and your eyes begin to shift from side to side. You know at this very moment what happened just aroused your suspicion, caught you totally off guard. It has rampaged through every emotion in your body. Your skeleton system is now being played like a xylophone. What comes out of your mouth is, “What The Hah Hell!” The questions start pouring in. The river will begin to overflow.

This outrageous act will be put under a microscope and scrutinized until there is nothing left for scrutiny. In the back of your mind you are thinking “I know they didn’t go there. Did they just say…? Oh you have crossed the line now!”

So what are you telling me? You don’t believe that yourself. You have got to be kidding me. Do you expect me to believe that? Come on now! No you didn’t! Think of the TIMES when you have had these moments and things got so critical you went there. What words did you use? Okay, I forgot you were critical and the words you may have used were a bit stronger. There are many words to fill in the blank. Who are the people and the incidents that make you have the “What The Hah Hell” moments?

“What The Hell Moments,” can be triggered by people who never get their facts right or never seem to do the research. They make horrible comparisons. Their ideas are so conservative. Change is not on their agenda. There is no flexibility. Before you can introduce a good proposal it will get shot down. The answer will be NO. Here come the petty meetings because the people are petty. When they use the words YES WE CAN, it is used for the destruction of the PRESIDENT. “What The Hah Hell!” What makes them appear to be POWERFUL is not their knowledge but their ability to dangle their money in front of the AMERICAN PEOPLE and DENY the PROGRESS of OUR NATION. Slavery, Bondage, Oppression, is what they want for WE THE PEOPLE and OUR NATION. It is their strategy to DIVIDE and ISOLATE so it will only be one CLASS. CLASS OF WAR will not exist if there is only the CLASS of the RICH. Who do you think are the main culprits dragging down the economy?

The ADJUSTMENT BUREAU manipulates lives. You have to stay on their path, never take risks to make any changes, and you can never choose for yourself. Your Voice will not be heard. Power lies in Salty Words, Words of Intimidation of the Abuser.

You know the Abuser image has to be larger than life. The reality will reveal the true COWARD. Once you discover behind the curtain the GREAT WIZARD has NO POLITICAL MACHINE, dammit, you are still hanging out with the GANG of Six. Toto had sense enough to split from the Gang. Steve Martin knew how that felt in the JERK. Dorothy was mad when she had awakened. She had never left the building. The meeting Dorothy attended was petty and no creation of jobs were discussed. The WHINY WOOS whined about the tax cuts for the RICH. Discussions on disaster relief, healthcare for the poor and middle class did not get a hand shake. Collective bargaining was totally avoided by the WHINY WOOS. It was more important to pick the Hair Dye and Gorilla Glue for the two front-runners for the PRESIDENCY. “What The Hah Hell!” Wendy Witches sho-nuff Britches take their conspiracy theories to a new elevator ride.

To think you can set gas prices at $2.00 by drilling. The vaccine that makes you mentally retarded goes straight to the top of the elevator. “What The Hah Hell”! Wendy’s sister who thinks our PRESIDENT pals around with terrorists. She was confused. Tourist is what she really meant. Quitting the governorship just to pay your bills and run for President. “What The Hah Hell!” The Prize Winner Awards of “What The Hah Hell” are: Fox News, Bill O’reilly, Shawn Hannity, Fox and Friends-Steve Doocy, Gretchen Carlson, Brian Kilmeade. We can’t leave out Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Eric Bolin, Heidi Harris, Michael Savage, Lori Ingram, Lou Dobbs, and many more Walkie Talkies in the Right Wing Conservative World.

The Prize Winner Awards of “What The Hah Hell” in Government goes out to Speaker of the House John Boehner, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, South Carolina Senator Jim Demint, Congressman Joe Wilson of South Carolina, Representative of Wisconsin and Chairman of the Budget Committee, Paul Ryan, Congresswoman of Minnesota, Michele Bachman, Former Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, Governor Rick Perry of Texas, Former Governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney, Governor of Wisconsin, Scott Walker, Governor of Florida Rick Scott, Governor of Ohio, John Kasich and many who is attending the Dysfunctional Family Reunion.

The Prize Winner Awards of “What The Hah Hell” Moments in History goes out to the following: Congressman Alan West whom compared himself to Harriet Tubman. John Boehner compared government spending to Crack Cocaine and who also stood there clapping for the President’s speech not realizing Pass This Bill Right Now got him excited and was the right thing to do. Congressman Anthony Wiener being confused on how to appropriately use FaceBook and Twitter. The Tea Party Republicans shutting down government and trying to make a second attempt. Congressman Doug Lamborn of Colorado calling the President a Tar Baby was A Bridge Too Far. Rush Limbaugh comparing the President to a Oreo Cookie was insane. John Kasich of Ohio and Scott Walker of Wisconsin were stripping Union Rights and making unilateral decisions. Sit back and think of your “What The Hah Hell” moment. I’m quite sure you can come up with at least three or maybe more.

The most recent “What The Hah Hell” Moment was the Execution of Anthony Troy Davis. It was a Rainy Night In Georgia. There is also a “Moment of AHA.” This is the moment of Discovery, Truth, and Vindication. “AHA”! Justice has not been served. What does this have to do with NLD? Bottom line it is a brief moment in History which demonstrates what is RELEVANT and what is IRRELEVANT. It demonstrates what can be said that can make your MAD-O-METER rise to 2.00 minutes. The POPCORN IS READY! It also demonstrates the double standards of what can be said by the so-called normal community. What would happen if people with NLD Syndrome acted in this manner? Isn’t this Hypocrisy? From the Flip side of the Chart. Keeping it Real for NLD SKILLS.

A Bite Of The Apple__A Tribute to Steve Jobs

Scene: This conversation takes place at Steve Jobs’ underground compound in the middle of who in the hell knows where. We are talking about Steve Jobs, Okay. Smokelbg has decided to pay Steve a visit and have a heart to heart chat.

Smokelbg:

Hey, where you at? Steve, Steve is you here? Hey man you better show up real fast. Some of your neighbors are looking at me real crazy. I can’t believe this. Steve wears this outfit all the time. I wonder why I’m having so much trouble wearing these blue jeans and black tee-shirt? I don’t have no ski mask on. What is this, the neighborhood watch? Okay, I see how this works. Don’t make me show your neighbors who’s the real Mac Genius. Why you laughing Steve?

Steve:

Smokelbg, you are hilarious. I’m so glad you could drop by. It’s good seeing you. It has been a long TIME.

Smokelbg:

More like Delirious and you don’t hear me singing Prince’s song. Come on now, I didn’t just drop by. I had to catch 2 planes, sail across the Mojave Desert, take a boat through Vienna, sing Oleta Adam’s Song-Get Here If You Can, and stung gun your neighbor’s dog. Where did Cujo come from? Was he trained to take a bite out of crime? Hey Prince designed his butt-out pants. I did not need any help from Cujo. Okay!

Steve:

What?! Is Fefe okay? He is harmless. He just wanted to play. I can’t believe you used a taser gun on Tim’s dog.

Smokelbg:

Did you say Tim’s dog? Please tell me I didn’t taser Timothy D. Cook’s dog. Damn it!

Fefe is the canine dog from hell. You should be asking is Smokelbg okay. Do I look like IAMS or Purina One Dog Chow to you? Where is this place anyway? Anytime Air Force One drops you off in the middle of the desert, you got to be hiding some secrets. I get along with dogs on a regular day but Fefe and I aren’t making any love connections. Can I use your bathroom? Ahhh! Steve there is a robot up here in your bathroom trying to tell me how many square feet are in toilet paper. Steve get up here I push a button and I’m not sure if I Googled my butt across the nation. I just need some peroxide for my butt and I need to flush the toilet. Steveeee!

Steve:

Are you finding everything you need Smokelbg. There are some special treats behind the mirror glass shaped like an APPLE. This would make any woman’s head spin.

Smokelbg:

I don’t want my head to spin. I need some toilet tissue to keep me from having issues with Roberta the Robot who will not let me wipe my Ahh….! Steve get up here NOW!

Steve:

Oh Dear, I meant to tell you if you put your hands in a certain position the robot will defend herself and put you in a headlock. Smokelbg, Tim designed the robot. It was a birthday gift for my daughter.

Smokelbg:

I should have known. Who is going to believe that my torn A… graduated to a whiplashed neck. Only at Steve’s Jobs compound. Do you have a pair of pants I can borrow and a soft pillow I can sit on?

Steve:

The pants may not fit. I mean they may be too long.

Smokelbg:

Just cut them in half…. I need something to cover my butt.

Steve:

Hold tight, I got something that will make you feel really comfortable. There you go. I know how you like soft fabrics and this robe is just perfect. Smokelbg, I’m not cutting my pants.

Smokelbg:

Fair enough but I could have done without the APPLES on the robe. This robe feels like a giant cotton ball. Steve it is TIME for us to take A BITE OF THE APPLE. Would you like to go first?

Steve:

Since you’ve come so far I want you to tell me what is on your mind.

Smokelbg:

I remember when I first told you about my son’s extraordinary mind, unique abilities, and multi-intelligence learning style. You looked directly in my face and said, Thank God he isn’t disabled. At least his head is still attached to his neck. I never liked labels that hinder people from achievement. At that point I wanted to cry. You sat there and you listened to me go on and on about Nonverbal Learning Disability. You asked me to take a trip out to one of the APPLE STORES. I did and it was an amazing adventure. When I stepped out of the car and entered into the store it begin to pull me and my son right into all the applications that could be purchased along with all the different products. My son and I were both dressed in our black tee shirts and blue jeans. We had struggled with the schools for years and it was TIME to move on and find the latest technology of teaching tools for home. Every person in the store regardless of race, age, and geographical location was fascinated with the products. They were all interested in learning. We felt at home. Every school across the nation should feel this way for all children to hold their interest in learning. This store’s atmosphere was non-threatening, created a conducive environment and every customer in the store was paying attention. Steve, from the TIME I walked into the APPLE STORE there were people conversing, exchanging email addresses, and their cell phone numbers. My son began to really shine and start asking for numbers too. He didn’t get this opportunity at school. I thought he would become overwhelmed because the store was so crowded. He jumped right on in. He was so excited and he began to open up for the first time.

My son didn’t have to feel the hurt and pain of having manifestation hearings, getting suspended, or ever having to worry about another due process hearing. Most parents feel children who are labeled “disabled” will become budget cuts in the educational system. Why would you want to fix a child that was already broken? Why should a school system RECOGNIZE or make accommodations for a diagnosis that has not been validated by the AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION? This store gave us a new way of looking at educating your child. It gave us hope outside of the educational system regardless what the educational system would or wouldn’t offer.

Why should a child go to school for twelve years of his life and find it hard to develop friends? It shouldn’t come down to TEST SCORES or the educational system FUNDING. Teachers shouldn’t be pressured to the point they LIE and CHEAT to bring children TEST SCORES up for ACCREDITATION. It should be about the child’s education because they are the ones who suffer the most. I kept trying to convince myself that I was in a store. This was more than just a store. Once again through your vision and innovation something magical was going on inside the APPLE STORE that made people not want to leave and learn more. It felt safe, people’s’ questions were being answered, there was so much support, and the employees cared.

I was so glad when you met with PRESIDENT OBAMA, ERIC SMITH one of the founders of GOOGLE and MARK ZUCKERBERG, founder and CEO of FACEBOOK. All I could think of was, “If anyone could get the educational system on track it would be you guys.” Alternative methods of teaching children are on the rise. Steve, parents need to understand if they can’t find support in their own schools and districts then they need to find another way. APPLE STORE has created a learning environment. The educational system needed to take notes BIG TIME.

I found one of your sayings you had written on June 12, 2005 and it is your TIME to take a BITE OF THE APPLE. Do you remember Steve?

Steve:

I may not remember offhand but I can pull it up on my computer. Let me see. Hear it is.

Smokelbg:

Okay, you read it.

Steve:

You want me to read it.

Smokelbg:

Yes Steve, if you want to sing it you can. Just do it. This is your BITE OF THE APPLE.

Steve:

Here it goes. I look in the mirror and ask myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “NO” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.

Because of almost everything-all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment of failure – these things fell away in the face of death leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

Smokelbg:

This is how I responded to your message on FaceBook. Hi this Smokelbg. I have always been puzzled by those who are GONE but not FORGOTTEN. These are the ones that never die and live in our hearts forever. The impact they make in our lives leaves such a great impression. You see them so clearly. You remember the smell of their cologne, the sound of their laughter, and their wonderful words of wisdom. We walk around everyday of our lives and we can’t remember the person’s name, what they wore that day, or where they work. Who is alive and who has passed on? There are many who are no longer with us. There are those who are expected to EXIT who will always have a PERMANENT ENTRANCE.

Steve you have inspired me to be a follower of my heart. When Tim’s dog tore into my APPLE BOTTOM JEANS I looked back and saw that I too was butt-naked. It would be a shame if I survived the cancer and not Tim’s dog. I just want the world to understand NLD Syndrome and hopefully parents will understand there is another diagnosis out there they may need to checked out. Everybody is not ASPERGER, AUTISM, or PDD-NOS. Good Grief! I want those parents out there asking questions, getting an early start on getting their child diagnosed, and not to be afraid. I don’t want to read anymore ho-hum stories about NLD SYNDROME. I’m tired of the gloom picture that is painted of people who have been diagnosed with NLD SYNDROME. These children/adults have to live with NLD SYNDROME and should not have to suffer the consequences from it. I want those doctors up, running, and developing strategies and coping skills and doing consistent testing for NLDERS. Sure DEATH is IMMINENT but to arrive at ones destination at a much early TIME without any knowledge of knowing what you are up against is one hell of a trap.The KNOWLEDGE of KNOWING will help with INTERVENTIONS even if there is NO CURE it will give you HOPE.

DEDICATED: To STEVES JOBS of APPLE, who has given the EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM HOPE and has given the WORLD EVERYTHING OF HIMSELF. NLD Mom/cancer survivor

Eddie On The Corner

The story I’m about to tell you opened doors for me and has changed my life forever. It was the summer of 1993. The music industry had changed over to gangster rap. The three of us were Inseparable like Natalie Cole’s song. We were not getting in touch with our feminine side. Dwayne Miller, we called Baby Boy because he never seemed to age. Tyrone Fulton, we called Tonto because he was the opposite of faster than a speeding bullet. I was called Luscious Larry, named after my father who was the player of all players in our neighborhood. My real name is Larry Beard. As a group we call ourselves the Nighthawks. We hung tight and we had each others backs. Our parents made it clear if dark catches you out past midnight you better have an alibi.

The Nighthawks loved music. Baby Boy and I could switch to any kind of music but Tonto only liked Old School Music. Baby Boy would sometimes get frustrated with Tonto but it was all good. I found a way so we didn’t squabble over who listened to what. I knew one day we would be larger than Boyz II Men. Personally I wanted to follow in BabyFace’s foot steps. Baby Boy wanted to be like Notorious B.I.G. Tonto’s favorite old school singer is Stevie Wonder. He said Stevie has lasted a LIFE TIME.

Tonto would always arrived late. It didn’t matter if he had a watch on. His TIME was always off. Baby Boy would always play his music first. By the TIME Tonto arrived he didn’t have any rap music to listen to. I would always hang loose or wait until I got home so I could play anything I wanted to hear. After we got through our music session, Tonto always seem calmer and wouldn’t fly off the handle at people. It was hard for Tonto to understand when people said things in a smart or sarcastic manner. We later discovered music was like therapy for Tonto. Baby Boy would get very defensive if anybody tried to crack on or make fun of Tonto. Whenever Sammy and his crew came around I could see Baby Boy’s jaw tightening and he would stand real close to Tonto. Sammy knew not to say anything crazy about Tonto. Sammy was always up to no good. He looked like that poison bottle with the skull and two bones going through the skull’s head. Yeah, he was Dr. Death. He had more secrets than the Pentagon. Everybody in the neighborhood was told to steer clear of Sammy. He wasn’t trying to do anything with his life except to try to pull the next good life down. We renamed him Satanic Sammy.

We would leave our music session and go down to Mrs. Val’s corner store. This store had every type of candy and fruit drink you could imagine. It even had EDDIE the town drunk. The strange thing about EDDIE ON THE CORNER, none of us had ever seen him with a bottle on his side. I often wondered why Mrs. Val never chased Eddie off. Mrs. Val was like sweet strawberry licorice. She was kind to all the kids. She really took to Tonto. It was strange how she knew what candies to choose for him. It was like Tonto had some extra feelers on his tongue that would not allow him to eat specific items. He would have a terrible reaction. The next thing you knew whatever was in his mouth was headed your way.

The problem started 2 years later with the Nighthawks. Some new boys moved in the neighborhood. Sammy knew not to mess with Tonto but that didn’t keep him from setting up the New Kids On The Block. He dared them to go tease Tonto. They would whisper in Tonto’s ear some strange message he never revealed to me or Baby Boy. We saw Tonto’s behavior change dramatically. Once you told Tonto something bad it was hard from him to move on. His anger would increase and before we could start our music sessions, Tonto would want to go down to Mrs. Val’s store and pick on EDDIE. He began picking on EDDIE at least two to three TIMES a week. He never told us what was said. We did not know how to get through to him. We finally ask Mrs. Val to talk to Tonto. She got through to him. Baby Boy and I did not question Mrs. Val at all. We were so happy that Tonto made a decision to back off of Eddie. Something changed for Tonto. I wished he would open up and tell us what those boys had said to him.

It was time for our music session. This Time Baby Boy was late. I kept checking my watch. Tonto’s mother, Ms. Ernestine showed up. My kneecaps tightened and my legs felt weighted. She said there had been a shooting and she would give me more details once we got to the hospital. Baby Boy found out what Satanic Sammy had the new neighborhood boys tell Tonto. Before Baby Boy died of his gunshot wounds he told me what happened and to promise to watch out for Mrs. Val, EDDIE ON THE CORNER, and Tonto. He never mentioned taking care of Ms. Ernestine.

The timing was bad. Tonto was getting ready to go off to college. He decided to stop by Mrs.Vals and take one more shot at EDDIE. To his surprise EDDIE was gone. There was a very well dressed man on the corner. He handed him a card and the name Edward Morrison appeared. It had Mr. Morrison’s email address and cell phone number. The man told Tonto to get in touch with his father. Tonto was really angry. He could not hold the secret any longer. He confronted his mom and wanted to know why she would tell him that his father died in the War. She was disturbed and in more ways than one. She couldn’t explain herself out of this one. Tonto came to the house and told me what happened the night Baby Boy got shot. He was told that EDDIE ON THE CORNER was his dad.

I was asked to go with him to find his father. He handed me the card. The name looked familiar but I couldn’t be sure if it was THE EDWARD MORRISON.

Satanic Sammy’s mother and Tonto’s mother were once best friends. Ernestine had gotten pregnant by Tonto’s father. She was a shame because he had several learning problems. He never could understand or get along with any of her friends except for Paula, who was Satanic Sammy’s mother. Paula is dyslexic. She hid for many years. She never revealed to Ernestine that she was dyslexic in fear their friendship would end. So Paula ended the relationship with Ernestine and continued her friendship with EDDIE ON THE CORNER. Paula later went to work for Edward Morrison Institute.

Well, we reached Morrison Institute and we sat outside in the lounge. Mr. Morrison came out to greet us personally. Tonto turn around and said to me, this is the man in the suit at the corner of Mrs. Val’s store. I looked at Tonto. I looked at him. Tonto couldn’t see that he looked like Edward Morrison. Mr Morrison smiled and explained why Tonto could not recognize his face. EDDIE ON THE CORNER was Mr. Edward Morrison of Morrison Institutes. He is the owner and CEO of 35 learning institutions around the world. He specialized in Nonverbal Learning Disability. Mrs. Val is Tonto’s Grandmother. I was asked by Tonto’s father to come in and trained to head up one of Morrison Institutes. Tyrone Fulton, a.k.a Tonto is now following in his fathers footsteps.
