Breaking News

We interrupt this program to bring you BREAKING NEWS.  I have nothing to lose and NO SPONSORS. The occupants residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue should not be allowed  to give a repeat performance of Helter-Skelter Decisions.  Our special task force unit will come around to check and remove all rolls of quarters. There will be NO KOOL-AID served. I repeat, NO KOOL-AID will be served. This is not the Jim Jones’ Inaugural Ball.

The Super Brains of Intelligence and the Emojis of Emotional Intelligence has left the Whitehouse.  The Lights are OFF.  The departure of President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Dr. Jill Biden taught skills of expressive language.  These great orators embraced the podium with their smiles, laughter, tears, and sincerity.  We The People felt the connection. We The People open our minds, hearts and were receptive.  It was not just a dream but this team took the lead.  Match Point!  President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden’s intelligence reflected Equality of the People and Equality of our Nation Rights. Great minds will always Lead the Dream of Hope, Change, Diversity and Inclusion.

Speaking of great minds, the Obama Administration had their moments.  When President Obama penned an Executive Order I don’t recall feeling threaten and bullied. LEFTY signed off on Executive Orders and I felt quite relieved as he poured the concrete.   Our Nation moved FORWARD in a positive direction. This was the moment of truth for Hope and Change.   President Obama did not send my brain and the old memories stored into my brain into fight or flight mode. I did not feel I was on the reality show SURVIVAL. The limbic system plays a huge part in our gut feelings and survival role.  My brain was in Safety Mode.  My central nervous system wasn’t singing Boyz To Mens, End Of The Road.   President Obama was my Uber driver for motivation and learning. He kept my emotional engine running.  My Limbic System was set on cruise control.  The Limbic System structure of the temporal lobe are responsible for regulating many of our emotions, as well as forming and processing memories. It’s wasn’t all about my Limbic System.  My dawgs in the carpool, Amygdala, Hippocampus, Thalamus, Hypothalamus, Cingulate Gyrus, and Basal Ganglia all played great roles.  You got to give credit where credit is due. It’s fun riding 6 deep. Just keeping it real.  Trump better keep plenty of fuel in all of his modes of transportation.  Bottom line, Trump shakes my Sh*t up. How about you America? I am not giving him a ride. Okay! A-myg-da-la plays a hell-of-role and should be nominated for the Oscars. Girlfriend is packing Fear along with her BFF, Cingulate Gyrus.

A-myg-da-la is grand central station for emotions.  She takes her job serious integrating and coordinating emotional behavior.  There are 2 almond shape mass. One on each side of the brain located in the temporal lobe (hearing and memory).  Amygdala hangs out with Arousal.  She is associated with fear and anxiety disorder, OCD, Post Traumatic Stress, Social Anxiety Disorder, and Personality Disorder. My girl can jack with your blood pressure and play Fast and Furious with your heart rate.  Amygdala and fear shouldn’t hang out.  She is hard on the nervous system. My Lessons Learned is from Hard Yard University. It’s Hard in the yard.  There is a price to pay. It is called Accountability.

1.) autonomic response associated with fear

2.) hormone secretions

3.) arousal

4.) memory

5.) emotional response

Hippocampus brings new memories to the table. We never forget to grab her on the way to work. Why? Without my dawg you couldn’t live in the present.  You would be stuck in the past. If hippocampus gets damage we’re looking at severe mental illness (schizophrenia) and some severe depression. Oh boy! When the hippocampus shrink it is said a treatment has been made available to reverse the process and help people with bi-polar disorder and depression.  Hippocampus can get affected by estrogen.  Alzheimer will be looking up your address and staring you in the face. Special Note: Steve Banning, Chief White House Strategist, and White Supremacist ideologies are not New Memories. Steve Banning ideologies of Make America White Again should be BANNED. Living in the PAST. BIG TIME!  Hippocampus, Banning, and Trump will never be on the same flight or in the same car.

1.) hippocampus is seahorse in shape. Mirrored in the right hemisphere of the brain and left hemisphere of the brain.

2.) emotional response

3.) navigation-mapping out ones environment

4.) spatial orientation-just your memory being able navigate through your environment (and if you can’t navigate through your environment use the cell phone GPS, the car high-tech verbal GPS)

5,) long-term memory-can not record new memories but connect emotions to memories

6.) declarative memory-memories purposely recalled for facts and events

7.) motivation

Thalamus involves sensory perception. Understanding is gain through ones senses (sight, taste, smell, sound, hearing, touch etc.).   Thalamus functions controls motor, sleep and awake states. Memory formation, pain perception, and emotional expression is part of Thalamus function. Other functions of the Thalamus package are sensory signals to the cerebral cortex. The cerebral cortex which process the majority of our information is divided into 4 lobes.  The cortex thin layer of tissue is grey and referred to as grey matter. Nerves in this area lacks insulation which makes other parts of the brain appear white.  The Thalamus process information. More functions included by the Thalamus is thinking, perceiving, producing and understanding language. My dawg has nerve connection with cerebral cortex and the hippocampus.

1.) motor control

2.) receives auditory, Somatosensory (conscious of touch, perception of pain, and warmth that occurs anywhere in the body, position of movement, vibrations of muscles and joint, skin fascia (connective tissue), and visual-perceptual

3.) relays sensory signals to the cerebral cortex

4.) memory formation and emotional expression, pain perception

5.) controls sleep and awake stakes

Hypothalamus, pearl shape size, is the control center of autonomic functions. This is respiration, blood pressure body temperature, regulation of the endocrine structure. Endocrine System secretes hormone, regulates growth, digestion, metabolism, sexual development. Homeostasis process of maintaining body equilibrium by monitoring and adjusting (physiological process) body part functions. Hypothalamus regulates emotional responses through its influences on the pituitary gland, skeleton muscle system, and nervous system (brain and spinal cord and complex neurons). Hunger, thirst, sleep mood, and sex in addition to stress and emotional responses is regulated by the Hypothalamus.

1.) balance of water and electrolytes such as sodium and calcium

2.) production of body fluids (saliva, sweat, tears, urination, defecation)

3.) Endocrine System glands-pineal, thyroid, parathyroids, thymus, adrenal, pancreas, gonads (ovaries and testes)

Cingulate Gyrus helps put emotions and pain in check. It involves predicting and avoiding negative consequences. Functions of the Cingulate Gyrus are listed as followed: Communication, maternal bonding, language expression, decision-making, regulate aggressive behaviors, and coordinates sensory input with emotions.  Cingulate Gyrus has tapped on our door because We The People and Our Nation feel the heat from all the turmoil. Who better to walk us through this unpleasant experience of fear.  The body is definitely woke and truly traumatized. I will personally fasten Cingulate Gyrus into the car. Damages to (CG) can cause cognitive, behavioral and emotional disorders. This includes Depression Disorder, Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Chronic Pain, Alcohol and Drug Abuse, problems with communication dealing with changing situations, anger, easily frustrated, emotional and violent outburst linked to attention deficit disorder. Schizophrenia, Autism, and Psychiatric Disorders are inclusive when damages to the Cingulate Gyrus.

Basil Ganglia is Mr Motor City. He is involved in primary movement, processes information related to emotions motivations and cognitive functions. BG’s home address or location is deep within the cerebral hemisphere of the brain. Basal Ganglia is associated with a number of disorders that influence movement.  Parkinson disease demonstrate gradual loss of the ability to initiate movement.  Huntington Disease characteristics are failure to prevent parts of the body to move unintentionally. Hemiballismus is a very rare movement disorder with involuntary flinging motions of extremities.

BG has 3 cousins who are a cluster of neurons (caudate nucleus, putamen, and globus pallidus). Did you say Putin? No, I said PUTAMEN. Just checking! They are responsible for involuntary movement such as tremors,  athetosis (characteristics: involuntary, convoluted writhing movement/twisting/squirming and contortions).  The person in this situation is suffering great physical and emotional pain.  Fingers, hands, toes, feet, and sometimes the leg, tongue and neck are affected.  Lesion to the brain is the cause. Athetosis does not act along.  It is accompanied by cerebral palsy. Chorea is abnormal involuntary movement. It is located in one of the neurological groups called dyskinesias meaning involuntary muscle movement.

Basal Ganglia is responsible for voluntary motor control, eye movement, cognitive and emotional functions along with procedural learning. The MRI SCAN has been ordered. I needed a Refresher Course on the Limbic System. I’m the star of Homeland and I can not miss anything. I will not risk We The People and Our Nation. Sh**t I got to make sure I take my meds. Trump will go into  an impulsive tango and will do something more erratic to bring the White House Down ( Jamie Fox plays the role as President. Whitehouse is under assault by terrorist, released 2013) Sounds familiar.

When Executed Orders are signed by Trump it feels like Weapons of Mass Destruction against We The People and Our Nation.  I arrive on the set of FEAR FACTOR fearing for my life and angry as hell.  No PROMISES KEPT for our FUTURE GENERATION because we have an Incompetent President with Severe Mental Illness (SMI) with the Nuclear Codes in his Pockets. If they are not in his pocket check Putin’s Pocket.  Andrea Mitchell could use the No Drama Obama Factor.  So could the entire nation. Trevor Noah’s Tweet of No Excuses turns into Fear All You Can Fear It’s The American Way.  This Does NOT Make American Great Again. Once again I will not sit at the table with Caligula. The words of Caligula “Let Them HATE So Long As They FEAR.”  My response was Hell To The No! No! Democrats rise up from the table and fight an untraditional fight. Where is Dan Rather? I need to talk to him.

Are you ready for the RECALL? Big Eddie would say “Get Out Your Cell Phones. Secret Agent RA! RA! would say, “Let’s see what the results on the PPP Poll is today.” She then would lean in toward the camera, clap her hands together with her eyebrows arched in an arrow position. The next words out her mouth is “BREAKING NEWS.” 🙂  Sir Chris Matthews, Knight of the Round Table, you can delay having your GD moment. Trump has not made it to the SITUATION WAR ROOM. Thank God! Can you even imagine what the outcome of a Global Situation would be. Yes! We’re looking at what Trump has done to the Muslin community. Straight Up Unconstitutional! Do we run the course of fighting it out in court. YES We CAN! 🙂  Before We The People and Our Nation get our A** blown to Smithereens let’s go for THE RECALL.  Just 10 days in office! To hell with 100 Days. Get me Michael Moore on the phone.  Also call Oprah. She knows the process on RECALLS. Tell Ari, Joy, Krystal, Tamara, Toure, Chris H., Andrea and Chuck Todd to get their A** in here Now! I want real stand up journalism when more BREAKING NEWS come in.  Sir Lawrence, why are you standing over there in the corner with that blank sheet of paper with those big black dots? I get it. Wipe that smile off your face before I give you a visual image you won’t be able to get rid of.  Have Gail bring me my notes from the last briefing on the 25th Amendment. I called Oprah and her line is still busy. Keep trying. I need that information.

Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) Mad Cows Disease, the Cattle and the Beef was RE CALLED. Ford Motor Company RECALLED their cars. Tylenol RECALLED their pills,  EBOLI OUTBREAK, people were RECALLED, and AUTOPSIES were performed.  Whenever there is an outbreak or Epidemic and lives are endangered a RECALL by the CENTER OF DISEASE CONTROL (CDC) or NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF MENTAL HEALTH (NIMH) is convened.  It is Time to convene and RECALL the President.  We The People should not live in FEAR.   We The People should not work in FEAR. We The People should live to Survive our own adversities. We The People CLOCK OUT from the Job. We will not let TRUMP CLOCKED OUT our LIVES by his irrational behaviors and decisions.  Our Nation should not Die at the hands of Trump Adversities. Trump has disorders wrapped around many concurring conditions including Hatred and Racism.  You would think Benny and The Jets Carson would come forward and validate Trump’s behavior. Ain’t he a neurosurgeon? Carson is retired from that position and so is his mind. RECALL him too.

RECALL the Electoral College, Mitch McConnell (Senate Majority Leader), Paul Ryan (Speaker Of The House), and Reince Priebus (Chief Of Staff of the White House), They appear to be the New Order and the faces of White Supremacy.  NOS (Not Otherwise Specified) has been Identified.  Has there been any sudden outburst of Irrational, Impulsive and Destructive Behavior? Yes, the firing of Sally Yates. She is Acting Attorney General from the Obama Administration. Sally Yates is of sound mind and body. Did Trump process any of his actions before he took the path of Mental Short cuts?  Did he have any bullet points or his less information sheet to carry out his irrational behavior? What?  No Mam! Future Lady President. Did He carry this action out on Twitter? LAWD! LAWD! Dear JE–SUS! Are the results in?  The New Order of White Supremacy took over the Republican Party. Well, it is the same Order of White Supremacy who held the backroom meeting to make sure President Barack Obama would only be a 1 term president. The same Order of White Supremacy dressed in suits who would not allow President Obama to select a Supreme Court Justice. Really! The idea of letting Black, Brown, Tan, Beige tell the HOODIE BROTHERS what to do. Have you forgotten already? Conversion Time! Take back the country and MAKE AMERICA WHITE AGAIN.

President Obama was called out on his Birth Certificate. He was called an appeasers.  The PRICE OF HOPE was extremely costly but through it all he remain quite calm. I never worried about the Nuclear Codes. I’m quite sure President Obama did not sit in the SITUATION WAR ROOM and take MENTAL SHORTCUTS.  Mental Shortcuts can lead to COGNITIVE BIASES. Mental Shortcuts are used to classify and categorize people. RELEVANT information is overlooked.  Stereotypes and Prejudiced will ascend from the ashes of hell to create a false reality.  President Obama absorb an abundance of information.  He was there for ALL the briefings.  TWITTER IS NOT THE PLACE  to run the United States of America.

President Obama was able to apply old information to new.  He was not stuck in the past. President Obama’s hippocampus checked out perfectly. President Obama did not FADE OUR NATION TO BLACK.  We are a Nation that has Come out of the Dark no longer to live in the Shadows. YES WE CAN__FORWARD. President Obama used his Executive Pen to move FORWARD but not for the purpose of Hatred, Racism Retaliation, and Discrimination.  Congress blocked the President at every turn.   Now it is TIME to hold Congress ACCOUNTABLE for cheering on Negative Behaviors. If I couldn’t get the job done I would be out of a job. President Obama did not sign We The People and Our Nation’s Life away. He fulfilled many promises. He reached across oceans and climbed the highest mountains for our NATION to be that of an INCLUSIVE NATION. This Is The PRICE OF HOPE, CHANGE, DIVERSITY, and INCLUSIVENESS. The Lights are On Lead by a Magnificent Mind.

Trump goes into his mantra/chant of “You know what this Mean” Hell Yell! I know exactly what it means.  Repetitive Obsessive, Impulsive, Destructive Behaviors of punishment all caught on tape. Did President Obama ever DRAW his signature on an Executive Order? Did President Obama ever say, ” you know what this means.”  A sharpie! Look closer at the signature.  You call that writing?  I call it dysgraphia. Whew! When a child sit down and is force to write. You know what this mean. As soon as they get up from their desk or table the frustration and anger will manifest itself. Surprise! All hell is going to break loose.  The behavior will become quite explosive. Baby girl just broke my TV.   Replace this skill set of writing with the use of an iPad.  Thank God for Steve Jobs. Look what Trump broke in less than 100 days in office with that sharpie. Hmm!  Can Trump write?  He lied about writing the book Art Of The New Deal. Do you recall President Obama ever holding up the Executive order and using a flat or monotone facial expression? He can write. President Obama had his mind made up about the Affordable Health Care Act. He LEAD his own thoughts and was not manipulated by others.  Here we go with 69 Shades of Grey from Congress and they don’t have a plan yet to Repeal and Replace Obama Care. President Obama executive functioning really are functioning. The lights are OFF in the White House. Does Trump have a mind? I sure would like to see the results of his MRI SCAN.

The results are in. Where did you get that MRI SCAN from? Don’t worry about it. I got connections at Grey’s Academy. Don’t you mean Grey’s Anatomy. No! We have to find a way to call the cable company and disconnect Trump Tv.  Is this legal? Where have you been?  Everything that has happen in this week is not legal and Unconstitutional. BREAKING NEWS: The Cerebral Cortex and its 4 lobes checked out. The Frontal Lobe: voluntary muscle movement/motor functions, thinking, decision-making and planning, higher order functions, reasoning, judgement,impulse control, memory, language, and speech.  (Check Baby, Check Baby 1,2,3). Well, he’s top Lefty Chief of Organization Skills. Parietal Lobe: Cognition, Receiving and processing sensory information. The 5 senses are in excellent condition. Taste/gustation, smell/olfaction, touch/somatosensory, sight/visual, and hearing/auditory, movement coordination, visual perception, reading and writing, math computation, understanding spatial orientation.  (Check Baby, Check Baby 1,2,3).  Occipital Lobe: process visual information from the retina, visual perception, color recognition, reading, reading comprehension, depth perception, recognition.   Lefty clearly understands what he is seeing. Can I sing a new tune. Please! When I first saw you, you had Sparkle in your eyes. Go Head! Cameo 1979. Shut Up before you tell our ages.  Okay Stevie B imitation. Joy has told you about she can do her job. Don’t ever say Shut Up again. I apologize. Okay: Temporal Lobe: Organize sensory as well as auditory, perception, memory information, speech production and language. Check mate!

Dan Rather, you are absolutely right. Extraordinary Times cause for Extraordinary Measures. The election was an Enigma. Trump is an Enigma. I will keep my promise.  Here is the information you wanted on Severe Mental Illness (SMI) and concurring conditions which overlap.(In real time, Dan did not ask for this information).   There will not be a stain or stigma residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.  In the first 2 years of President Barack Obama’s PROMISES KEPT  he stated, “LET’S BE THE GENERATION THAT MAKES FUTURE GENERATIONS PROUD OF WHAT WE DID HERE. Will there be a future generation if Trump continue his Negative Behaviors?  Has anyone seen Trump replace any Negative Behaviors With Positive Behaviors? Will there be a moment in time NOW where our nation can survive the punishment that is being inflicted by an Incompetent President with monumental threatening behaviors?  Instead of Donald Trump being held accountable he is rewarded for Negative Behavior.  He does not understand Consequences nor does he fear consequences.  Trump’s cheerleader are mirrored after him and lack knowledge just like him. Look at the Billion Dollars Babies he picked for his cabinet who are not qualified to do the job.   Trump cabinet members will hinder his ability to make appropriate or good decision and solve problems. Steve Banning(Chief Strategist of the Whitehouse) is on my knock off list. Don’t you mean 250 count white sheet and white pillowcase man. Low Count!  More like No Count.  What’s up with the Bullet Points?  Hmmm! MENTAL SHORT CUTS.

There are times when we need to put our brain on speed dial.  Mental shortcuts (heuristics) allow us to problem solve and make decisions quickly and effectively.  The 2 most common heuristic are availability heuristic (accessing relevant information in your mind). Representative heuristics (decision-making process by comparing the Present Day situation to mental examples in your mind). These shortcuts are designed to save on time when determining risk.  This process filter through a lot of information.  Just think if our brain had to analyze every single aspect of a situation or every decision we make.  This is a nice coping skill device to keep our brain from gong into maximum overdrive. If our brain takes a walk on the wild side not a D**n thing will get done.  Whew! Makes me tired just thinking about the outcome.  Okay! Reach down into your pocket and pull out your RULE-OF THUMB. We can save on brain gas and function more effectively so we don’t blow out all of the tires having to think about everything and what will be the next step of action. Lots of people don’t have a spare in the back of their trunk or a donut. These are the people using fix-a-flat. Sir Lawrence O’Donnell can you imagine fix-a-flat brain?  Mental Shortcuts  can be dangerous and can lead to the following  BIASES:

1.) confirmation bias-People refuse to listening to the other person point of view or consider facts in a logical manner. Information given only confirms what they believe.  ex., People who feel global warming doesn’t exist and confirm their belief.  People who believe there should be no background checks for Gun control. The Wayne La Pierre Syndrome, ” the only way to defeat a bad guy with a gun is to arm a good guy with a gun”.   Trump who thinks there is voters fraud. American should be White again. Trump confirms his belief that Muslims are terrorist.  I’m not hearing it. I Did It My way Program. Even when you know there needs to be No hearing for voters fraud, Trump needs to confirm what exist in his mind only.

2.) hindsight bias-When you here, I knew it was going to happen. I knew it all along. It was inevitable. Polls being more predictable than what they truly are. I knew it syndrome. Well, that sure in the hell didn’t happen in the 2017 elections. Just venting!

3.) anchoring bias-The first piece of information we hear. Quick decisions we make when we don’t shop around. How much are we willing to pay?  The information you give your doctor can make him susceptible/influence to make the wrong diagnosis.  When you go to negotiate for a salary increase the First Lady would say, when they go low you go high. 🙂 Just letting you know I was paying attention. How long a person expect to live? When should my kid start dating?

4.) misinformation effect-The questions contain misleading information distorted by memory. The original information got mixed up with the misleading information. The misleading information took over my memory. The misleading information is more recent. Misleading information comes to mind first.  When the incident happen the information that was important got switch around in one’s head. So now their using the misleading information to fill in the gaps.  Time, discussing the events with other people/witnesses, news (especially fake news) and excessive exposure to alternative facts plays a major role in misinformation effect. 🙂 Okay!

5.)  actor-observer bias-People can’t see their own actions or behaviors. When something goes wrong they blame their action on some outside force. ex. Danny’s teacher gives long and drawn out lectures. He failed his exam. The teacher got blamed. No! Danny A** didn’t study?  As the observer people tend to blame their actions on internal causes. John is never on time for the movies (internal) John is always so tired and sleepy.

6.) false consensus effect-over value their own opinion, Over estimate how many people beliefs, behaviors attitudes and values are the same as theirs. Over estimate the vast majority think the way they do and it will benefit their self-esteem. Over estimates the people who share your political views, share your preference. The false reality if one person support you in that particular neighborhood everyone will support you. False reality if I like it or buy it everyone should follow my lead.

7.) halo effect-overall impression impacts you evaluation process.  Physical Attractive people or more favorable. Global impact of  likable personalities. (stereotype) The smart and pretty effect. Drab and not attractive would be considered not intelligent. Employers rate eye candy as smart, competent, and qualified. Marketers get a celebrity to endorse a product and the rating goes up.

8.) self-serving bias-Give themselves credit for SUCCESS and lay the blame for FAILURES on others. TRUMP SYNDROME. LLC Incorporation! Since people became INCORPORATION let’s include Mitch McConnell (Senator Majority Leader of Kentucky), Paul Ryan (House Speaker), Reince Priebus (Chief-of-staff). This is the New Order. The self-esteem protector leads to faulty attributes such as blaming others for their shortcomings.  It also keeps the self-esteem in tact by blaming a person age, gender, race, and DISABILITY.  NOT MY FAULT, NEVER! NO APOLOGIES.

9.) availability heuristics mental shortcuts design to save time when determining risk. Relying on this way of thinking lead to bad decisions and poor estimates. ex. Lotto time. I need to start buying tickets. What are your chances of winning. Making judgements on what is readily brought to mind. Man! There have been a lot of airplane crashes. Hmm! I bet not take a plane. Whatever comes to mind you base your decision on that information. Even if the information is not relevant.  Ford had 64 layoffs. I probably be next.

10.) optimism bias-Too optimistic for your own good. It can happen to you not me. Why me! Our rational and logical brain goes south. Ain’t no way in the world I’m suppose to lose my house, get a divorce, diagnose with an incurable disease. You are vulnerable and suffer illusions of vulnerability. We believe we are less likely to suffer misfortunes and more likely to be successful.  What are the odds of being struck by lightning? The odds of a tornado sticking because one has not hit the area you live in.  Impacts of false optimism is health risk, drinking, drugs, gambling, and smoking. The God will take care of it Syndrome. God needs your undivided attention, cooperation and participation. This Bias isn’t all bad. We need optimism with a sense of REALTY to move forward and look toward the future. Giving hope and motivation so when we do fail we will take responsibility and not blame others.

What! Trump has no THUMBS. That is NO EXCUSE he has feet. He needs to be held ACCOUNTABLE with whatever body part he has left.  Trump has more biases than what I listed.  Donald Trump stepped on a lot of toes and pissed a lot of people off. Has anyone checked on Mitt, Chris, and Rudy? We thought we give them some time and space to cool off. Well, you better ship them to Alaska because I don’t think it will be no time soon. Do you think they were committed? No!  This is what happens when Affluent Mental Illness Goes Untreated. This is the facts not alternative facts. What is Affluent Mental Illness gone untreated? The high dollar privileged individual (Richey Rich) folks that is let off the hook for their disruptive and violent Intentional Behaviors by their peers, a judge, and society.  Even when mental illness can be factor in their national cheerleaders don’t seem to care and encourage more negative behaviors. All sins are forgiven and it is okay for the person or persons to pay for their sins with cash, corporate credit cards donate high dollars to an affluent judges or charities. The list gets better. Sleeping With The Enemy Part II influences a Nation Election being compromised.  BECOME THE PRESIDENT, LIE, CHEAT, STEAL, and even RISK the lives of the many troops for the Dumb A** oil statement.  Speaking of OIL, Trump even pissed Dick Cheney off. Wow! Cheney said he went to far on the Muslin ban. Unbelievable! Even Cheney changed his position. What do you think Sr. Chris Matthew? You think Dick just want a piece of the Spotlight? Make me smile and say CHENEY for me. Come on!

Trump does not reside at Reality Boulevard.  The President lacks information, gullible, lacks wisdom, experience, lacks judgement especially in foreign affairs. These are the components of NAIVENESS. Who can benefit by exploiting Trump deficiencies?  Say It With Me Now! Vladimir Putin! Who will feed Trump the BS he wants to here so he thinks he is King? Who wants to control the WORLD? Who played Russian Roulette with our Nation’s Election? Everyone in the Nation has witness Trump out of control behaviors. The media and the Democrats are looking in the wrong spot. Revealed through the lens under the surface of ones skin a passageway has open and revealed what is deep within. There is nothing for you to attain. Right before your lens the answer lies in Trump’s Brain. The RNC wants an AUTOPSY. Well here’s my Contribution. Fight On The Assessment of Observation and Evaluation.  With the biases listed above we will not judge. We will be able to  evaluate REALISTICALLY.  All has been documented on tape and viewed through the lens of We The People and Our Nation. RECALL:

WE INTERRUPT THIS PROGRAM TO BRING YOU BREAKING NEWS: You have just entered the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART. This is an INCLUSIVE ENVIRONMENT. You will not be BANNED. WELCOME TO OUR WORLD.

Accountability__ReCap

December 2011-Lessons Within A Lesson:

Timelines are really good. They tell a magnificent story. Hanging out at Appreciation Park,  Ms. Shirley points out to her co-worker how hard it has been to get promoted because of her age. She point out in the story people with disabilities were not accommodated appropriately.  Visit dol.gov for more protected rights.  Associates with disabilities are not included and has vanished in the workforce.  Their rights are protected under ADA (American Disability Act). Visit United States Department of Labor for more information click on dol.gov.   There are so many things wrong at WAL-MART store #2857.   The associate lives have been shattered.   Their self-esteem has been scattered.  The associates rights are stripped away.  The Associates haven’t the slightest clue of how their rights are violated.   Yes! Of course it really does matter. Awareness will come if the associates are reading.

Associates who are 40+ (Age Discrimination) had gone missing. Many of these associates was Grandfather in.  Bullying, intimidation, micromanagement ran amok throughout the store. Who set up this climate change?  Associates are set up for Failure and not for Success.  The turnover is great.  The most used strategy in the store is turning the associates against one another. Cronyism ranks #1.  In my neck of the woods it is called the FBI. This meant you got your job through Family, Bro, and In-Laws. IF YOU ARE NOT THE ANOINTED YOU WON’T BE APPOINTED. How much room is there at the top?  Who will get left behind? The Tap on the shoulder can be challenged under hiring practices. This wide range practice is very common at Walmart and throughout Corporate America.

Certain members of management did not like to be questioned.  Associates are to follow directives only.  Store #2857 is the breeding ground for chaos. Associates were lockout, forced out, isolated, denied promotions and vacations, wrongfully terminated. Internal Suppression is the Red Carpet and the Walk Of Shame.  GOOD MEMBERS of management that could actually trained the associates for another level of management have their marching orders.   Inside These Walls of Existing Conditions  at store #2857  there is a “Climate Change of Fear.” It remains a Pressure Cooker and ignites the fuel of Intimidation. The Gauge goes up and the flames turns into an inferno of Retaliation.  The Heat Is On.  Certain members of management had more options to cheat, lie, and only worry about their Bonuses and salary. Inequality and Injustice! Yes, Corporate America invested with their investors instead of investing in a human life. It is called Corporate Greed.

Truth is a great Power. Consequences rides by its side. It is up to the individual whether or not if he/she can live with the path they’ve chosen.  Lies will Blacken any day. Let your VOICE BE HEARD and Restore Trust.  Speak out! Remain true to yourself, credible, respectable, and believable. You have more rights than you think. Our nation was rolling into an election of a new Presidential Candidate in the year of our LORD 2012. The INVESTMENT was placed with We The People. The vote was for THE INTELLIGENT MIND.  The OUTCOME was MONUMENTAL  Focusing on MONEY only stimulates CORRUPTION. YOU ARE THERE! This is just the beginning.

August 2012-Inside These Walls__Existing Conditions

Do your company understand Diversity? What happen to Inclusion?  Who benefits from the company’s policy? Whatever happen to Safety in the workplace? Who is Dr. Larry Barton? Don’t worry, Dr. Larry Barton is strictly a company man. He doesn’t work for the associates. He is Mr. CBL (computer base learning) of WAL-MART .  Dr Barton’s training is based on shifting all the responsibility on the Problem Associates vs Associates With Problem. Boot camp is over.  The associates are not getting brainwashed by Dr. Larry Barton seminar.  Dr. Larry Barton failed to teach Management RETALIATION is NOT ACCOUNTABILITY.  Dr. Larry Barton states the best Crisis is one we can prevent. What about the crisis which is initiated?  Who is the real threat in store #2857?  What about the problem with the same Management or certain members of management?  Why did the associates become so disgruntled? What did management do for the associates to become UNREASONABLE? Temperature Rising and Global Warming has struck. An Atmosphere of FEAR has been created. By Who?   Where did OPPORTUNITY go?  Maybe Opportunity ran off with another lover. Valentines Day has passed. Maybe it is time for a new love.  There is no love up in the house at  Wal-Mart store #2857.   No love for all people of a diverse race and culture. Can the associates become successful in Wal-Mart’s World?  Say it with me now!  If You Are Not The Anointed You Won’t Be Appointed.    The associates aren’t the ones with the high-powered attorneys. The associates definitely aren’t packing a psychiatrist that is carrying a roll of quarters in one hand and a pitcher of KOOL-AID in the other hand.  There will be no more brainwashing.  It’s time for “WHO” to take responsibility. Say it with me now. WAL-MART!  You Got It! The associates need an equal playing field. They don’t need HR or Home Office kicking them around like a ball on a played out football field.  Dr. Barton needs to be investigated by the Citizen Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) or the associates commission on Human Rights. Either way this Dude needs to be investigated. Dr. Barton needs to realize laws are made to protect the individuals right against their employers.  Review At-Will Employment and Constructive Discharge.

New Hurricane has blown in.  I have noticed hurricanes are usually named after ladies. I do recall Hurricane Andrew. NOT GOOD!  This hurricane was named after our new store manager. Hurricane Randi. Other members of management call him DADDY! I wouldn’t want a father like that. Nor would I want a MOMMY DEAREST. His undesirable cleaning equipment starts with berating, demeaning, shouting and screaming at his management team.  The store manager takes pride in stripping management of their self-esteem. Management then comes to the floor to wax the associates. There is no shine left on the associates behind.  The shackles once placed on your feet are shackles placed upon your mind. An ankle bracelet of FEAR, INTIMIDATION, and RETALIATION gets wrapped around the mind of the associates induced by the store manager.  The same or certain members of management follow the store managers directives. Management have their CBBD (Coaching By Beat Down) orders never questioning RIGHT or WRONG of the directives and NEVER standing up for the associates.

RETALIATION is very much alive. DELAY is the waiting game. You think management will get back with the associates. Walmart has a sun down rule.  Are you the new star of Pitch Black?  Welcome to Van Diesel world.  FEAR creeps in. You are all alone and own your on.  No responders. It is definitely an unsafe environment. There is only one way.  It certainly doesn’t favor the associates. PUNISHMENT is at the top of the ladder.  All hell breaks loose.  The lies, deceit, and obstruction of justice takes its toll. The associate will not be the winner of the VOICE and will not return for the next season.

Violations in the store are monumental. Of course I know what they are. These violations run the gamut from ATF, OSHA, HEALTH and SAFETY, FIRE CODES and much more.  Associates constitutional rights are violated on a daily basis. Human Rights and Civil Rights takes a backseat.  Violations of this nature are hidden under the carpet. Walmart strategy is to have the associates focus on the money. In the mean time Walmart will get away with Corporate Greed, Force Arbitration, and the ability to assassinate Class Action Law Suits by getting a PASS. This will ultimately shut down the associates day in court. It is not the VOICE of one injured party but the Voices of the massively injured.  Everyone must have their day in court.   I have my sword of accountability with me.  Management will RETALIATE against you for Reporting to HR and HOME OFFICE.  If Walmart say they won’t they are a Ball Face Lie and their Nickname is MIT. Why do you think I have written all of these stories?  I am not singing Daryl Hall and John Oates, Say It Isn’t So. I know it is so. I have lived it.

November 2012- Please Proceed__Get The Transcript

The Sum Of All Fears. The new store manager has arrives on the scene. It is election time. Guess Who is up for grabs. Time for me to get frame and held accountable for a crime that I did not commit in the year of our Lord 2012.  The Co-manager, Ben Abbott,  wants to become a store manager.   So the Black or if you prefer to use African-American CSM can be sacrificed.  It is only fitting and appropriate that I call my name out also. Hello! My name is Linda Garrett the overnight CSM at store #2857.   I am the one with the rope burns around my neck.  Coming atcha live from the front burner.  Are you ready to review  INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS at its finest?  These dates are very significant-5/30/2012 (given a verbal); 7/13/2012 (coached); 7/26/2012 (Asst. Manager Stephanie validated by the time clock at 4:07 a.m. that it was her and Co-Manager Ben who was under a lot of pressure by the new store manger, Randall Addison to clean house) big piece of the puzzle; 8/30/2012 (all hell breaks loose); 9/13/2012 and 9/22/2012 (coached again). Notice the pattern in these dates. Every 2 months and the dates 7/13/2012; 9/13/2012 are two months apart on the same day. On 9/16/2012 Kyndell Garrett, my son was coached the next week. I wanted the PYRAMID of RETALIATION to once again reveal itself. Under the PYRAMID of RETALIATION you have DELAY, FEAR, and PUNISHMENT (All Out War). Well, at least Assistant Manager Stephanie got promoted to Co-Manager and she no longer works at store #2857.   You wrong a person and you get promoted. The other Co-Manager, Allison, stepped down and went to another store. The law of Constructive Discharge knocked down Allison’s door.

I would like to point out to Human Rights Commission, the United States Attorney General Loretta Lynch, State Attorney General Chris Koster, Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez and President Barack Obama a new set of numbers have arrived on the scene as of February 26, 2016. My watch said 5:50am. The other White or Caucasian female CSM had to go home. I did show her the list and she thought it was strange. Me too. Strange I did not see her name on the list. Should I be surprise?   This time register numbers are used.  Register 3, 29, 28, 17, 22, 17, 21, and 22. Each register shows the date, negative or plus amount, and to be verified as a multi-user. This is the killer. On that sheet I was at the very top of the list. I was listed nine times.  There are nine register numbers. Either I’m on every register because we are so short of help or my numbers are used on registers I’m not on. I’m looking at some registers that I have not been on. Every morning I leave out Let The Games Begin.  The order is given to aim at the yellow target on my back.  The same Co-Manager makes his way down to 100 to see who will be under surveillance and  who he can put the screws to.  Who gave the order?   Here we are election time again in the year of our Lord 2016 with the same Co-manager, Ben Abbott, directly in the cash office where it is so much easier to set me up or ask any person he is surrounded by to do something unethical so he can become store manager. How sad! I went to the cash office at the request of an associate. He had printed his schedule out. He could not remember what printer it had would printed on. I checked and VOILA! The paper on top had my name listed 9 times. The paper underneath was the associates schedule.  The associate said he was surprised I found his schedule because he had printed his schedule out a day ago. I was not surprise to see the SETUP take shape again.

Walmart doesn’t own their mistakes and will never apologize. Walmart will never say they learn from their mistakes because they keep making the same mistakes. Walmart will never tell what they have done wrong. So I thought I would get out in front and shine the light on their wrongdoing before they give me a coaching or fire me in this year before the old system goes out.  Walmart will dirty up your work record. You just have to stay on top.  A new system will be put in place on MARCH 5, 2016. Every person who needs to be locked in by a coaching, will be. Any associate under the old system will be fired before the new system takes effects.  That’s right!  MARCH 6th, 2016 is my birthday.  It would be awesome for the same Co-manager, Ben Abbott, to make another attempt to assassinate my character on the day before my birthday.   Do we have a theory for March 5th?

Walmart probably doesn’t want to remember David ToVar. He was Walmart Vice-President for Corporate Communications. The PR person should never become the story. Well, David Tovar forgot that he did not graduate from college In other words he Lied on his resume. Well, David Tovar got out in front and corrected his errors. He was Dropped by Walmart but picked up by a marksman(ex- Walmart employee who now works for Sprint). David Tovar did not let his mistakes define him but got out in front and now he is the Come Back Kid. Walmart let all of their mistakes define who they are. Who cares about REPUTATION when you are the world largest employee. Money is  Walmart only interest and pleasing their investors.

CEO, Doug McMillon I’m on every list to be targeted at store #2857.  I remember Co-Manager Therese (Trez) Renzetti approach me to finish 2 CBL on Friday February 5, 2016 at the beginning of my shift. My shift starts at 10:00 am.  There was no Emergency Manager Meeting. I had just 2 compliance CBL’s. I completed the Ethic CBL but the Tobacco and FireArm went down while I tried to complete it. Co-Manager Therese Renzetti had 9 CBL’s at that time. Listed below as followed:

1.) Hazardous Waste-due 8/10/2015

2.) Safety I-due 10/27/2015

3.) Safety II-due 10/27/2015

4.) Alcohol Safety Training-due 10/27/2015

5.)Hazardous Waste Refresher-due 10/27/2015

6.) AP-O9 Authorized Associates-due 10/27/2015

7.) HPAA-Ops Refresher-due 10/27/2015

8.) A Safer Work Place-due 10/27/2015

9.) Statement Of Ethics 10/27/2015

CEO Doug McMillon these are the people you have chosen to keep around. The harassment did not stop there. Assistant Mgr. Seth Blakely continued his harassment and bullying. He made it clear that no one is untouchable and he would be back for the next cycle to fire me. I do have the list of the people he coached and the people he fired.  He may state he tells everyone this but I made the list to prove he is not joking.  This is what happens when associates hold management accountable. This is the FEAR that your TEAM of people hold over the associates. That is WHY the associates are afraid to come forward.  As the President of the United Stated would say, “You can’t make this up.” Yes, I will call my name out again. Hello! My name is Linda Garrett. I coming atcha you live from the Front Burner.

December 2012-Painted Me As The Enemy

Top strategy of Walmart is turning associates against one another. There will ALWAY be a NO FRIENDS CONTRACT. Friendships and relationships will be broken by promises made by Walmart. There will be NO ACCOUNTABILITY for management as long as associates cannot UNITE. Money will be used as the Dog Catchers Bone. The Open Door Policy is to protect Walmart.  The information you bring to HR will be shared with the store managers and other members of management. Once you go through Walmart’s Open Door and they find out what you know from that day FORWARD you will be forever Painted As The Enemy.

November 2013-Lucy And The Football Taken Away

Reflects back on the life of Lyle Streich a long-term associate who passed away on October 23rd, 2013. Kansas City Star rolled out Lyle’s obituary on October 25th, 2013.  His funeral services held on October 28th, 2013. At the time of Lyle Streich  death Bill Simon was the CEO of Walmart. Lyle was a GOOD MAN and had accomplished many achievements. Before Lyle passed away he came to visit me. I was so glad to see him. He was so frail. He joked about me being on register 22. He said, ” You know they are going to try to hang you on that register. You better switch up.” Lyle was right. He knew Black Friday was just around the corner. Lyle came to check up on me to see if I would survive.   My voice had diminish greatly and I told Lyle I had a lot of concerns. I remember an associate approach me and said one of the Co-mangers had told her I was faking and I wanted people to feel sorry for me.  No! I really want to maintain my health. Unlike the associates who clock in and want to be sick and go home to avoid the stress of the job at Walmart.  Boy with my voice being out of commission for 6 months it was party time for the same Co-manager because I could not ask her questions. An associates kills me off on my birthday.   When you get to the paragraph Mr. President I attended Lyles services something happens and it explains WHY MARCH 5th leads into MARCH 6 which is my birthday.  It will give you a recipe and explains what happens in Please Proceed__Get The Transcript in 2012.  It also shapes what is plan for March 5th and March 6 of 2016.  At that particular time in 2013  160,000 Walmart workers will be rewarded to high paying jobs and more opportunity is emphasized. Here we are at the gate.   It is now  2016 and a new pay increase will be initiated and put into  effect by March 5, 2016.  Yes, the beauty of TIMELINES.

Lyle was very ill.  The associates in the store expressed great concerns. Lyle was moved from Automotive, Hardware, Sporting Goods, Furniture, Toys, and Lawn & Garden. Lyle made it clear he would never have been treated this way on his other job. Lyle said Walmart does not care about the associate. Eventually Lyle became too ill to work. Even after he left the store it felt as though Lyle was there watching over me and the other associates. I made a commitment to Lyle. When my voice return I would not waste my breath nor my voice on a Store Manager, Randall Addison, Co-Manager Therese Renzetti, or Co-Manager Ben Abbott who berates, bully associates, retaliate,  set associates up for failure and use excessive surveillance to harass and intimidate.  Once again, I’m Linda Garrett at store #2857. My voice is to be used to advocate, uplift, and motivate. Yes,  Lyle was taken away but his spirit is a beacon of light for me to carry on my fight. Truly Respect For The Individual. Truly Respect For A Human Life. The commitment for success and not failure; the commitment to enable the disable to be provided with work coaches and appropriate accommodation to do their job successfully; the commitment to finding associates who are homeless, homes; the commitment to the associates to provide them with the necessary tools to do their job effectively; the commitment to consider having Walmart invest in transportation for workers. Provide a bus pass allowance. The school districts provided bus and meal allowances. Can Walmart make the COMMITMENT?  LYLE’s exit from this life has given me a greater strength.  His beacon is the flame of HOPE and OPPORTUNITY to lead a path to one day restore Dignity back into Walmart.  Lucy and her football ran away with TRUST but we will not let Lucy take DIPLOMACY away.

December 2013-Message to the People

Nelson Mandela passed away. I went over to the Grocery side to ask all the associates from another country how would they express their grief or say Good-bye. When I look back on this story the question was raised because other associated from foreign countries were being harassed, bullied, Wrongfully Terminated. All the foreign associates who were on the grocery side are no longer there. Hmmm! Was the foreign associates targeted because they are vulnerable and do not wish to compromise their citizenship? Was the foreign associates targeted because they do not understand their rights in the United States? Hmmm!

December 2013-Screamers, Shouters, Shooters__Scarred Opportunity

This story reflects the associates who are no longer there or no longer works for Walmart. It tells how the associates are so underpaid.  The associates receive food-stamps and have EBT cards working their scheduled hours.  Bill Simon at this time was still the CEO of Walmart.  Visit demos.org and read Retails Hidden Potentials: How Raising Wages Would Benefit Workers, the Industry, and the Overall Economy. This is one of the Presidential Contenders of 2016, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont platform.  He speaks on many platforms. Hillary Clinton also speaks on wage increases.

This story is the mirror image of Five Days Before Christmas released on June 14, 2016.  Only the associate in Screamers, Shouters and Shooters__Scarred Opportunity was Sarah who was bullied and walked off the job by the same Co-Manager, Therese Renzetti. Sarah is Mexican. Her job was restored. Just like Anna, who is Philippine, is the associate in the other story Five Days Before Christmas. Her job was restored.  Do you understand WHY?  Was the associates in an abusive, hostile, and an unsafe work environment?  These 2 associates seem to be very REASONABLE.  Had it gotten to the point their work environment was intolerable? This is all too familiar and another repeat performance.  The question has been raised many times. Are foreigners targeted at Walmart? Why? Who created this atmosphere of FEAR?  Go back and review Constructive Discharge.

The Wounded Shooter is the man behind NO ONE WILL EXCEED EXPECTATION, Randall Addison.  His failure has now become management and the associates failure. Marksman and Snipers no longer work for Walmart and are now recruiters for other companies. They see the true worth in the individual who was let go by Walmart. Just ask David ToVar ex Vice President of Walmart Communication. He was recruited by an ex Walmart employee (sniper) who works for Sprint. Walmart will never admit to their mistakes.

April 2014-#2857 Disruptive Innovators__ Those Who Are Disruptive

A new CEO has arrived on the scene. His name is Doug McMillon. Bill Simon has not been booted out of the picture yet. It gives a Pick-A-Boo look into the salaries of both the CEO’s.  This story gives information on who to get in touch with if you have any Walmart grievances. If you wish to step outside for help and where to turn for additional information. Who are the Disruptive management at #store 2857. WHY after all theses years the Disruptive Management hasn’t been held accountable? Where is HR? How will the associates ever TRUST HR if management is not held accountable?   You will get an up close and personal look at Human Right Violations and violations within the store. It will take you on the roll-a-coaster ride of FEAR. It tells WHY associates are afraid to speak out.

May 2014- Unjustifiable__Negative Evaluation

You evaluation should be based on your performance and not the failures of the Store Manager’s performance and how poor inventory was. Here we are once again rolling into inventory in 2016. This time much earlier. This poem points you in the direction of the associates protected activity rights under Title VII of 8-1 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

We will continue to RECAPTURE THE RECAP ON ACCOUNTABILITY with June 2014-My Friend With The Yellow Pen. There are 9 stories and many pieces of the puzzle to sort through. Dig in! This is Linda Garrett signing off for now. Coming atcha live from store #2857. I will definitely hit you back with more pieces of the puzzle and a much Bigger Picture. I will keep you well-informed and certainly up to date. Coming atcha live from the  Flip Side Of The Chart and the front burner.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Dash Before The Distance

It’s very cold today. My body is engulfed by high-speed winds. The wind is circling around my ears and gnawing at my fingertips. The weather is not favorable. There are many days in our life where conditions are not favorable. It has become a long and exhausting day.

Taking this trip was hard but it is TIME. Yes another ICON’s ship has sailed into the night. Her glow from life’s candle shifted as the wind-swept around the flame. The flicker of the light struggled but another strong wind caught her breath.

This moment of darkness and silence has claimed yet another ICON. DESTINATION has caught up with her. She has now boarded a cruise liner to ease her from this life of hurt, pain, and sorrow. In our hearts we pray her spirit will be guided by an eternal beacon.

Let her soul be at rest for a pleasurable journey.

In life some of us will run a MARATHON. The MARATHON is so rigorous with so many obstacles and hurdles to jump over. There are those who will SPRINT through life. If you’re a SPRINTER it is TIME to reflect. Don’t be in such a hurry to run a short race through THE DISTANCE.

You will meet with an early DESTINATION. When you hear someone make the comment “GONE TO SOON,” you’re beginning to understand life’s race can be shortened. Why are we in a hurry? We feel everything needs to be taken care of immediately.

How many laps can we run once the START button is pushed? Will we need to reset the start button because we have jumped the gun? Some of us will not get the opportunity to reset the start button in our lives. Will your life be a SPRINT? Can you endure the MARATHON?

A chain of events will take place on our life journey. There are TIMES when we will peek over into someone else’s life. We assume they have everything to live for. We are plagued by SHADOWING the lives of others. Our hearts are overcome with resentment, bitterness, and jealousy.

Finally we graduated from HATRED ACADEMY. All the happiness, wealth, and power we assume an ICON lived, lies right there before our own two feet. What did we do? WE stepped right over the most priceless commodity, TIME. We continued our HATRED CAMPAIGN.

This type of campaign diminishes ones health and ones life. The SHADOWING which is done to the lives of others has set us on a course for destruction. We yearn and grasp for what we think have made ICONS and other people successful. It blinded us and we lost track of who we could become.

We lost ourselves and we lost RESPECT for TIME. Reality is beginning to sink in. As the media reflects back on the IMAGE of the LIFE of an ICON, we realize we could never make the sacrifices in life to maintain the ICON lifestyle.

Bottom line:Never want what others have because you may not be willing to take the beat up for it.

Her music is beginning to rotate through my brain. As I walk through the stone garden, I hear her strong vocals bellow out “I Have Nothing.” The wind has picked up, my legs are beginning to weaken. The sorrow and sadness are starting to creep upon me.

I heard another rendition of the songbird voice. The tune was “I Look To You.” Many people say they never saw it coming. Did we PAY ATTENTION? She delivered a strong message in her MUSIC and in her BEHAVIOR. She went back to her gospel roots preparing for the journey home.

She was there to sing her last song with Kelly Price, “Jesus Loves Me.” She stopped in on CLIVE DAVIS, her long TIME mentor. She visited with Ray J, Brandi, and Monica. Bobbi Kristina got a chance to briefly visit with her Godfather. Brandi will never forget this birthday.

Sitting here on this stone, right at my eye level, is the DASH. From the day we are born to the day we die and have met our ESTIMATED TIME of ARRIVAL(ETA), there is THE DASH BEFORE THE DISTANCE.

The DASH is all the life one is living and what goes on in between ones life BEFORE they run THE DISTANCE. As the leaves crackle beneath my feet, I notice on the carving of the stones there are a lot of SPRINTERS here today. I came across this magnificent marble stone.

The birth date is here, and the DASH is here, but no DESTINATION date. I wonder if the person was a SPRINTER or A MARATHON RUNNER? Was this someone who had not been found and declared dead? Maybe the person was found and no one knew the DATE of his DESTINATION.

People in our lives demand so much from us. We cannot possibly meet all their requests. When it is TIME for us to meet the demands of our lives, so much Time has been devoured. The DASH BEFORE THE DISTANCE is much shorter.

Every day from this moment on our ESTIMATED TIME OF ARRIVAL(ETA) draws near. We are so much closer to our DESTINATION. ALPHA is the beginning and OMEGA is the end. The DASH BEFORE THE DISTANCE is the life we are now living. RESPECT TIME!

A door has not closed. The door is wide open. It will give others the opportunity to reflect on their life and make changes and seek INTERVENTION.

In Loving Memory of Whitney Houston and the Celebration of her Life.

To the Houston/Brown Family, Clive Davis her long TIME mentor/dearest friend, and the many relatives/friends who mourns the loss of their love one.

Lessons Within Lessons

Scene: Smokelbg and a dear friend meet at APPRECIATION PARK to review and share lessons they have learned. They discuss how they feel about the work environment in Corporate America and changes they would make to have an effective/productive workplace.

Each share their views on CRONYISM, how it has affected the workplace, the political arena, business world, entertainment industry, and the effect it has on our lives daily. Opinions are shared on the Presidential Pretenders/Contenders and the behaviors they have displayed.

Views will be shared on the media and their instrumental role in keeping the public well-informed. How the media have put their lives on the line to get the WORLD to PAY ATTENTION. Which media matters and which media doesn’t.

Their reaction to Congress, Occupying Wall Street Movement, the Pepper Spraying of UC Berkeley, Icons, Penn State, Syracuse University, Citadel University and why this has broken trust for the American dream. Stay tuned, Smokelbg and her friend will spend the wheel on Black Friday.

Last but not least they will share their opinions on the failure of the Super Committee.

Smokelbg:

Surprise! Here you are in the next story. The NANA WHO BOOs are so excited. When I told my grandchildren it would be you, Mrs. Shirley, they laughed and laughed. Boodah stated her grandma was finally going to talk to a real person. She doesn’t want people to think NANA has lost it.

Whenever I mention the TEA PARTY she thought I was sitting around the table with these imaginary characters and a giant bunny rabbit. Boodah knows you and feels relieved. Boodah thought NANA’s creative writing had got the best of her.

The American Psychiatric Association(APA) probably thinks the same. I appreciate you coming to APPRECIATION PARK. How are you and the grandchildren getting along?

Mrs. Shirley:

Ms. Linda, you don’t mind if I call you Ms. Linda? I don’t think I will remember Smokelbg. I will end up calling you Ms. Linda anyway. Yeah, yeah, yeah, the grandchildren are fine and they are growing so fast. I can barely keep up with them. They keep me so busy but I’m loving every minute. Well, I’m doing okay but I was upset that I didn’t get the job. I have put in for that job at least four times. The people they pick is unreal. Ms. Linda, I wouldn’t be so offended if the people they had picked could at least do the job or pretend to know the job.

Smokelbg:

Of course I don’t mind you calling me Ms. Linda. Whatever makes you feel comfortable. Right now Mrs. Shirley, I see you are not comfortable. You have worked very hard for this company. Everyone knows you are the best qualified candidate for the job and will do justice for your staff.

Mrs. Shirley:

Why do they keep passing me up?

Smokelbg:

We all have sat in this Chamber of Horrors. You look over into the next cubicle and you say, “What The Hah Hell!” I know I have worked my but off and they gave this position to CAPTAIN APPLE-HEAD. Yes, this is CRONYISM at its finest. In my neighborhood we say the FBI is working the case. Somebody at the job site is either FAMILY(F), BRO(B), or an IN-LAW(I). The FBI has reached a decision and you are an OUTLAW to the INSTITUTION. Since you are NOT a RELATIVE you are NOT RELEVANT. This happens all the TIME in government and in every job sector across the world.

How do you think we got those PRETENDERS/CONTENDERS as front-runners? Our government has to come up with a better evaluation system to keep the riff-raff out. Check out their behavior and their mental processing. Who will control or be their BRAIN? Can you see LESSONS WITHIN LESSONS?

Mrs. Shirley:

You know Ms. Linda I was beginning to think I just couldn’t do a good job. I was really getting pretty depressed. I thought my co-workers had lost RESPECT for me. On a scale of 1-10 my self-esteem has dropped to 5 and the RESPECT I have for myself was halfway out the door.

Smokelbg:

It has nothing to do with whether or not you can do the job. It is the person ahead of you that feels threatened and wants to make sure they can CONTROL YOU in order for you to not come after their job. Mrs. Shirley whatever you do don’t give up. CAPTAIN APPLE-HEAD won’t last. They want you to feel just how you are feeling and even lower so you will not have the courage to reapply. Have any of the PRETENDERS/CONTENDERS lasted? They all have been the flavor of the month.

Mrs. Shirley:

You know I really thought HERMAN CAIN could pull it off. If he had only came forward and admitted the TRUTH before everything got so out of hand. This really hurt him. Ms. Linda, they don’t mention HERMAN CAIN. Where is he and his 9-9-9 PLAN?

Smokelbg:

Mrs. Shirley, he is over in the junkyard being a TRUE DECEPTICON. He is the white Monte Carlo that has the sign on it that says, “Controlled, Bought, and will only be Sold by the Koch Brothers.” HERMAN CAIN has to FACE THE MUSIC. He is no longer a BROTHER FROM ANOTHER MOTHER.

He is the REAL MOTHER FOR YA, originally a song by JOHNNY “GUITAR” WATSON. I know BILL WOLFF will love this song. Play It Again SAM! Mrs. Shirley, I got to get you some of those motivational tapes by SIR RICHARD BRANSON. He will tell you SCREW IT! LETS DO IT! By the way, Mrs. Shirley, HERMAN CAIN doesn’t know what the TRUTH is. Go back and review Don’t Make Me Put On My Gasoline Drawers. There are women coming out of the woodwork and HERMAN CAIN will never admit his guilt nor give up his dream of becoming President. HERMAN CAIN believes his own lies. Lets see if his wife continues to believe in him or will she accept her husband is mentally ill. HERMAN CAIN will always be the PRESIDENT OF THE LADIES CLUB in his own MIND in his own TIME. He could have really used, DON’T ASK DON’T TELL.

Mrs. Shirley:

Finally I am beginning to understand the message in your blog, NLD RECOGNITION, and how it is applied to the workforce. You wanted Corporate America to understand the mental processing of individuals on the job. Ms.Linda, there are so many people on the job that are set up for failure. They are placed in tasks in which they will not be successful due to the lack of education of Corporate America. They are not provided with the appropriate accommodations to do their job whether they are disabled or not. Opportunities are not given to employees. When the opportunity is given it is a PROMOTION for FAILURE not to SUCCEED. The majority of the employees prefer not to go to management because they feel nothing will ever come of it. Employees in Corporate America feel bullied. Management gets away with managing by intimidation and micromanagement.

Employees rights are being stripped away everyday. It has gotten so bad employees change their shifts, cut their hours back, and won’t show up if they know that certain management teams are working in the same TIME frame of their schedule. The turnover is great. Attendance will be the number 1 problem as long as they have management who lack social communication skills, managers who are not qualified for the position, and managers who are not properly evaluated and brought in by a system who rewards cronyism or by the FBI. Management who breed only chaos and bring the morale down of the employees, should be shipped out right away. Employees are used by those management teams to turn employees against one another. Management can’t stand those who question their authority or ask too many questions.

Management in Corporate America, just like the SCHOOL SYSTEMS, failed to understand this could be the individual mode of learning and ONE SIDE OF LEARNING DOES NOT FIT ALL. Yet the individual who looks different, learns different, or does not work as fast, is DISABLED. Ms. Linda, you would say, “How can management manage others when they are incapable of managing themselves?” I can see LESSONS WITHIN LESSONS.

Smokelbg:

What happens Ms.Shirley is the management team who are supportive, respected, get in the trenches with you, and are team players, get forced out. They are isolated and locked into their position. Good managers are denied promotions and they eventually leave Corporate America altogether. Does this ring a bell? Do you sometimes feel isolated within the workplace? The good team of management is not allowed to associate themselves with employees for fear the employees just might get properly trained. This is really sad. (Internal suppression)

When the employees come to work and feel like they are SUSPECTS, there is something definitely wrong with this picture. INEQUALITY and INJUSTICE for ALL takes place in the workplace throughout the music, entertainment, sports, and many other work related industries. You coming on board, Mrs. Shirley, would be another good manager who could think for themselves, would not stand for anyone trying to manipulate your work ethics, and wearing your GASOLINE DRAWERS. Any employees or new management coming into a new position in Corporate America would be provided with serious social communication classes to attend. If they process information differently, the company should provide the necessary accommodation to help the individual maintain their job.

Mrs. Shirley:

Ms. Linda it would be a great start but I doubt if it will happen. Everyone is so worried about FUNDING and they worry less about people’s lives. Speaking of funding, what do you think about PENN STATE, SYRACUSE, and CITADEL UNIVERSITY? The sexual misconduct of those children/young adults was so terrible. It is beyond my thinking of how they could let something like this happen for so long. ICON or Not. No Life can become so big that other Lives are looked over are put at risked.

Smokelbg:

Many years ago BILL COSBY stated it was the parent’s responsibility to be vigilant over their child’s education and their lives. He was heavily criticized for it. CHARLES BARKLEY was criticized for stating to the public he was not a role model but their parents should be. Many parents across the nation, including myself, have suffered the INEQUALITY and INJUSTICE for our children/adults. It is painful and devastating to live in a society that has become INHUMANE and BARBARIC.

Our government, GOP, CONGRESS, REPUBLICANS, TEA PARTY, are not team players. They do not understand that our NATION is INTERDEPENDENT on other NATIONS. Our government has made very poor decisions. The PEOPLE of OUR NATION have taken it to the streets and now OCCUPY WALL STREET. This movement is for EQUALITY and JUSTICE. “What the Hah Hell” the 1% get subsidize by the government. It is just a play on words. They are the BIG BALLERS of WELFARE.

Mrs. Shirley, it is frightening to think that our society has become so materialistic, money driven, and willing to sacrifice the lives of the poor and middle class to protect the 1% funding. The lives of children were sacrificed just to protect the schools, funding, and their ICONS. Schools would cheat on test scores just to say our children have made improvements when they can barely read, spell, or write. Atlanta had the biggest cheating scandal in the country that was under investigation back in 2009. Their dishonesty finally caught up with Atlanta School District on 7/5/2011.

There were 56 schools examined and 44 schools got busted which was 178 of their teachers and principals cheating (78%). Governor NATHAN DEAL released a statement. It was first reported by the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Atlanta was the first to openly admit their cheating. Earlier, cheating scandals were found in Washington DC. They are not the only schools. This has taken place for many years. It now involves more money, real estate, and their AAA (triple A rating). Do you know what brings about this corruption, Mrs.Shirley?

Mrs. Shirley:

I’m really not sure. I know you probably found an answer.

Smokelbg:

Better than that, I have LIVED IT. The Government, Workforce Industries, Schools, Financial Institutions, and other Nations around the World strategically “CREATE AN ATMOSPHERE OF FEAR.” This climate of fear works like a PRESSURE COOKER. It ignites the fuel for INTIMIDATION. The gauge goes up and the flames turn into a greater FEAR of RETALIATION. Once the heat of this pressure is applied, the individual has the option of cheating, lying stealing and others will go so far as to kill another human being. You are now just as CORRUPT as the INSTITUTION.

You can tell the TRUTH. Consequences ride with this POWER. If you are isolated and punished for telling the TRUTH, at the end of the day you are still CREDIBLE, BELIEVABLE, and RESPECTABLE. Your VOICE can still be heard and you can restore TRUST. I prefer the TRUTH and PEACE OF MIND.

Mrs.Shirley:

Well Ms. Linda, that is never going to happen with the PRETENDERS/CONTENDERS. They have all stored their lies under RICK PERRY’S ROCK. I give them credit for letting us know where we really stand. They ain’t no SMOOTH OPERATOR. I will go back and read this story again.

The only SUPER COMMITTEE we need is to balance the MINDS of those who are IMBALANCED. This is the greatest DEFICIT in our NATION. You wanted us to see the INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS who “CREATE THE ATMOSPHERE OF FEAR.” I can see for the first time. The lies, deceit, and cover ups hurt the mainstream. The action and decision of the GOP, REPUBLICANS, TEA PARTY, and BLUE DOG DEMOCRATS crippled and DISABLED our NATION. Where will the line be drawn for the DISABLED and a DISABLED NATION?

Smokelbg:

This is a LESSON WITHIN LESSONS when you realize everything you fought for is right there for the world to see and needs to be POINTED OUT From PENN STATE to the worthless DEBATES… all of it is really the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART. Everyone is at risk not just NLD Syndrome and other exceptionalities.

Take a good look at the hands that our lives and our children’s lives have fallen into. You call this NORMAL. I hope the 36,000 thousand physicians under the Umbrella of the AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION (APA) vote for an INTELLIGENT MIND, bypass the COLOR and not focus on funding. It was the funding that stimulated the corruption, devalued the lives of the poor and middle class, divided the nation, and placed MONEY over a HUMAN LIFE. Something massive had to occur to reach back in and draw out the hidden stories. PENN STATE did its job.

Mrs.Shirley:

Every time I talk to you, Ms. Linda, it feels like I am at a seminar. You really got me PAYING ATTENTION. I can’t stay away from ED SCHULTZ and RACHEL MADDOW SHOW. I have learned so much. I want Bill WOLFF to have his music back. He may be more productive in his environment with it. I am not saying BILL WOLFF isn’t productive. He needs to be happy. Did you see how the PRESIDENT handled his Microphone Checks? He embraced his MIC CHECK, handled the voices of the people, and sent a message with his smile.

Scott Walker, the governor of Wisconsin, got shut down. Michele Bachman ran off. Karl Rove got P.O. Where was his BRAIN? Ron Paul was condescending with his remark of “Feel Better”. The media have been so instrumental in bringing the public so much information and news coverage. I’m quite sure the rest of the world appreciated the charts to see how the 99% have FLATLINED and the 1% have FLOURISHED. It is so helpful to know which media is worth watching. I don’t watch FOX NEWS, they get everything twisted. They do not matter.

I did get upset with the college kids getting pepper sprayed. This was a peaceful movement. Everyone involved should have gotten fired for the way those students were treated. They could have gone to some of the retails stores on BLACK FRIDAY.

There wasn’t anything peaceful about BLACK FRIDAY. Where did all those people come from? Where did they get all that money? Every store I went into people were giving the clerks money not plastic. Ms. Linda why do they really call it BLACK FRIDAY? I heard a horrible comment in one of the stores. I was so embarrassed. Does race have anything to do with Black Friday?

Smokelbg:

You know what, Mrs. Shirley, that is another LESSON WITHIN LESSONS. In the meantime we are going to go and get us a bite to eat. You are going to get that promotion and this was A VERY GOOD DAY.

Smooth Operator

I tried to catch up with you the other day. The pace was too much for me. It felt like a marathon. My legs are so much shorter. Just when I thought I had caught up with your stride, my body hit pay dirt. You left me hanging off the rail wishing I had a bottle of Primestine Mist. One thing about it, you were dressed to impress. The navy blue suit you wore was raising hell and the lavender tie set it off. The look on your face was serious. Your arms swung out evenly from side to side. It didn’t matter how many emergencies the city had, you looked as though you were ready to put them all out. Are you wearing your Gasoline Drawers?

Every person you encountered on the streets was given a strong handshake. Your smile came bursting through. Words of hope were given to all the people who felt beaten down by the economy. Then all of a sudden you sat down on the curb in your nice suit. Do you think Eric Cantor or Paul Ryan would have given an uplifting curb service speech to the people in their high dollar cha-ching suit? Don’t answer!

Wherever you were headed it didn’t seem important anymore. You were answering questions about concerns of jobs, infrastructure, voters suppression, and the Big 3(Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid). An old lady appeared from out of nowhere. Silence came over the crowd. You looked directly in her eyes and you reached out and held her hand. Then you said, “How can I help you?” She responded, “You have helped me.” You are learning to ask the questions. Inclusions makes you a part of us.

Sitting here among the people you have included yourself. The Republicans tried to divide you from WE THE PEOPLE and OUR NATION. You have not let Pride override the welfare of the People. The Republicans tried to make the American people feel in taking out the dictators, it was only your victory. WE THE PEOPLE and OUR NATION understood it was a victory for all. You are starting to learn from your MISTAKES. Achievement comes with ACKNOWLEDGING your MISTAKES and taking RESPONSIBILITY for your MISTAKES. You have shown the American People deference.Through all the criticism you did not let your head drop below the water. The eternal flame burns deep inside of you. The Human Factor works in your favor. You have remained HUMANE.

The Presidents before you made mistakes. The PRETENDERS/CONTENDERS have taken it to a new level of mistakes. Herman Cain is the cousin of the other mother, Oscar OCD, who is always entertaining the NO NO THOUGHTS. Go back and refresh your memory. Oscar OCD was in EASTER UNDER THE UMBRELLA_FOR NLD. Oscar OCD always referred to his little cousin Herman, as Captain Nasty McNuts. Tyrone Tourettes, the cousin of Bobby Tourettes, thought it meant Herman liked McNUGGETS. AH NO! I don’t think so.

Strange that HERMAN grew up in the Restaurant Business. Since he made his POKEMAN SPEECH he probably need to call PICACHOO to the RESCUE. The next cartoon character he might want to be is a TRANSFORMER. Yes, Herman Cain is more than meets the eye. He is the original DECEPTICON along with the other PRETENDERS/CONTENDERS. Starscream, Herman Cain, cannot be trusted. He is always trying to find a way to overthrow Megatron, Rick Perry. Sounds like this is playing in the media right about now.

Megatron, Rick Perry, is at Lowes picking up paint for his METEORITES which is all wrong. Sentinel Prime, Mitt Romney, has switched sides and his numbers still didn’t move in the polls. This is the perfect world for Mitt Romney.

He has so many characters to TRANSFORM into. If I was Herman Cain I would stay with the TRANSFORMERS. He’s going to need a hideout within himself and a new theme song. No one will ever notice the White 1999 MONTE CARLO is Herman Cain in the junk yard. The sign will read We BUY, SELL, and OWN previous DECEPTICONS by the Koch Brothers. In Training Day, Denzel Washington drove the Black MONTE CARLO. Herman Cain is NO Denzel.

Now it is TIME to develop a trusted loyal Crew so you won’t look distant or be isolated from your base. Steve Israel, Head of the Democratic Congressional Committee can whip the Democrats into shape. Lean to the side of the strong democrats who use the media. In Smokelbg Tweets she gives her thumbs up to Bernie Sanders, Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

We can’t leave out Barney Franks and Chuck Schumer, the Progressive/Liberal Democrats. You got the Ohio Players, not the singing group, the Democrats in Ohio. Sherrod Brown and Marcy Kaptur would be an excellent team players.

The DEMOCRATS need to speak out and be compassionate about their leader. You have come a very long way. We can see your growth. Your message has gotten stronger. Son, I ain’t stopped BELIEVING in you. So you better not stop BELIEVING. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. BELIEVE IN YOUR PURPOSE. BELIEVE IN YOUR VISION. BELIEVE you are a SMOOTH OPERATOR.

Another voice shoots out from the crowd. SMOOTH OPERATOR, the REPUBLICANS are totally thrown off course. Their hatred is letting people around our nation and other nations know they have RESPECT only for the BENJAMIN’S BABY. All this business about your job ratings in the polls is at 40% is a bunch of sardines. Just think if we had Muammar Gaddafi for 42 years. Instead we have Charles and David Koch causing havoc. We need to occupy their headquarters.

Who cares about those numbers? What polls are they reporting from? It sounds like Fox News statistics. Their math is way off the charts. They never do their research. We all know Bill O’Reilly is never WRONG. I do like Greta Van Susteren, Sheppard Smith, Geraldo Rivera, and Chris Wallace. Geraldo Rivera barbecues BILL O’Reilly’s butt. Geraldo is the chef of Burnt Ends. Watch out Bobby Flay!

Chris Wallace broke down and told John Stewart that Fox News is Conservative. John Stewart of the DAILY SHOW keeps his Gasoline Drawers on and uses his flame thrower to set Fox News on fire. Fox News thinks this is the story of ROOTS 999. They made a lot of people have a “What The Hah Hell” moment. I guess Herman Cain is their Black. “What the Hah Hell” do they mean by your black/my black. Let’s send a friendly reminder to FOX NEWS letting them know that Slave Days Are Over.

Who do they really have for a Candidate? A young lady’s voice in the crowd rang out. With everything the Republicans have done to you, I would have blown a gasket. SMOOTH OPERATOR smiles and replies, “I need YOUR support.” War within Wars are no good. I am here for the People. The losses have made me gain great knowledge and great strength. I have Learned and Transformed. The past is just that, the past. The Moment is Now. We will continue to Press On. I will not be discouraged by Congress, the Republicans, and the TEA PARTY. The REPUBLICANS reading this will say I did not answer the question. We have to stop BLAMING. We need to Start MAINTAINING our government.

There are TIMES when we take Action, the Words are fulfilled. There are TIMES when we take Words and we may Fail to carry out the Action. Remember the word has been “NO.” Remember the Action was not carried out. Remember to do the Math. Remember that only 4 Democrats voted against the AMERICAN JOB ACT. The young lady asked, Who were the 4 Democrats? An elder man steps up and starts calling out names. It was them old tired Conservative Blue Dog Democrats. Roll Call Sister!

It was Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska, Senator Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, Senator John Tester of Montana, and Senator Mark Pryor of Arkansas. I tell you what Sister, I can Remember 4 names. Baby Girl, all 49 REPUBLICANS voted against the bill. Now it is gonna be hard Remembering all 49 Knucklehead REPUBLICANS. Just Remember the Herman Cain Theory, 4+5=9 and you take out the (+5=) and you got 49. Maybe he will get 49 years for the 4 women he sexually harassed.

Why did it take 4 women and not just 1 for these charges to be acknowledged and taken seriously? Is it possible that a SUPREME COURT JUSTICE may have slipped through the cracks? Is it okay to label the poor and middle class behavior? Why are we not acknowledging the behaviors of the rich and high-profile government officials? Go back and review GOT NO TIME TO BE DISABLED in the March Archives. You will find an answer.

A young boy around the age of 6 breaks through the crowd. His presence breaks the tension. “Are you who I think you are?” Somebody said you are the President of the United States. I told them No Way! You are the man with the plan. The man who understand. The man with the whole world in the palm of his hands. You are a SMOOTH OPERATOR. He jumps into PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA’s lap and gives him a big hug. He lifts the young boy into the air. “I will keep my Promise.”

ADVISORY ALERT:It is hard for people diagnosed with NLD Syndrome and other exceptionalities to come off as SMOOTH OPERATORS. Some may lack the social communication skills, inability to read social cues, and interpreting body language. Others may have trouble with personal hygiene, and cocktail party speech. They have difficulty interpreting facial expression. It is hard for them to initiate a conversation or end a conversation. Their social judgement is poor. NLDers are not sure where his or her space is and cannot judge the distance(space invaders). This is due to visual-spatial organization. They are labeled by others as annoying, ill-mannered, rude, discourteous, and smart “aleck.”

People diagnosed with NLD Syndrome cannot detect hidden meanings of language and social interactions aren’t detected There will be many outbursts, social blunders, misinterpretations, and misjudgments. NLDers end up being the victims and are victimized because they are naively trusting. They DO NOT understand a person that is deceitful, cunning, or who manipulates others. They have faulty spatial perception only getting half of the picture.

Their behaviors are misinterpreted by our society as being INTENTIONAL. Their neurological and nuero-behavior right hemisphere disorder is UNINTENTIONAL. Sexual Harassment is a term that is very vaguely defined. It happens a lot in the workplace. It entails social situations, making of unwanted sexual advances, and obscene remarks. How would it be possible to charge a person with NLD SYNDROME with sexual harassment if they have these characteristics and traits? People with NLD SYNDROME will not have a clue to what sexual harassment or any other type of harassment is due to the nature of their neurological disorder and their UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS.

My advice to all parents is find a neuro-psychologist or psychiatrist that has had years of knowledge, training, and experience in the field of Nonverbal Learning Disability. It is very essential that you have your child tested early. This diagnosis has been overlooked for 41 years and has not been placed on the DSM4. This is a great disservice to millions of people who are looking for answers for their children/adults. When AUTISM, ASPERGER, ADD, ADHD, PDD-NOS, OCD, TOURETTES SYNDROME, ANXIETY DISORDER, TIC DISORDER, just doesn’t add up, PLEASE turn YOUR ATTENTION to NLD SYNDROME

How many TIMES have people with NLD SYNDROME diagnosed/undiagnosed been falsely accused, misjudged, socially isolated, and punished repeatedly because society has failed to be educated about this neurological disorder?
How many people are locked away in institutions, given a counterproductive treatment plan, or heavily medicated because they have gone undiagnosed, the diagnosis is ignored/is hidden or the diagnoses were not understood?

How many people with this diagnosis have been falsely accused of a crime they didn’t commit or understand it was a crime due to the nature of their disability and their UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS? How many people with this diagnosis have been incarcerated? How many lives have been lost and our society will continue to lose due to the secondary diagnosis of anxiety, stress, depression, and panic attack? Think about it. I hope this will help millions of people.

How can our society continue to violate the HUMAN and CIVIL RIGHTS of people with this diagnosis? This is in the DEFENSE for NLD SYNDROME. NLD Mom/cancer survivor

Refreshers Course In NLD

There are many viewers who are coming to this blog for the first TIME. Here we are 10 months later and unless you started from the January Archives you probably don’t have a clue about NLD Syndrome. I could tell you to go back and read the stories in the January Archives. It’s really Time for a refresher course on NLD. NLD (Nonverbal Learning Disability) is a developmental disability that affects the right-hemisphere of the brain. NLDers process information differently because they miss a lot of information. This contributes to misinterpretation of the world around them. Without the whole piece of the puzzle it causes them to act out inappropriately or unexpectedly.

If you can’t understand the tone of a persons voice, give eye contact, or read the person’s body language there are going to be several misunderstandings. This is a neuro-behavioral disorder and the person with NLD has UNINTENTIONAL behaviors. They are NOT EMOTIONALLY DISTURBED.

This neurological disorder goes UNRECOGNIZED and unattended by professionals, teachers, parents and society. Individuals who are diagnosed with NLD Syndrome demonstrate a mature vocabulary/very language proficient, rote memory skills (mechanical, habitual, repetition), and an excellent reading ability. People with this disorder can have difficulty interacting with others, transitioning to new settings, adapting to changes, working with new people, and trouble with writing/fine motor coordination. Although reading skills are exemplary, abstract concepts need to be explained in detail. Individuals with NLD Syndrome have difficulty understanding metaphors (a figure of speech), emotional nuances (may not be able to understand the expression on a persons face, sound of their voice, or body language), multiple levels of meanings, relationship issues. My advice to you if you are talking with a person with NLD Syndrome, give a simple description, explicit explanations, and be very patient.

The three areas that encompass or surround NLD Syndrome is Motoric, Visual-Spatial/visual perceptual, and Social. Lets start with Motoric. This deals with dexterity: task of manipulating small objects, writing, typing, buttoning buttons. Riding a bike is grueling. Tying shoes may take years. It is hard for them to catch their balance, secure their equilibrium or bounce back with their balance. NLDers really work hard to master athletic skills. Sitting and eating on the floor is preferable.

I hope you’ve got other silverware because NLDers may resist eating with a fork or spoon. They are not interrogating you. NLDers full-fledged learning mode is when they are asking questions. They have problems on the left side of their body. Psycho-motor skills involve the thinking through process of physical movement such as coordination, speed, manipulation of the object, agility, dexterity, strength and grace. Bottom line, if you are still holding the ball, you are thinking about it for an extended period of TIME, or trying to figure out “What The Hah Hell” to do with the ball, you have poor psycho motor coordination.

You are not going to be on DANCING WITH THE STARS. You are no MARIO ANDRETTI, and there will be NO KAREEM ABDUL JABAAR SKY HOOK. The key is it comes easy or more automatic and you have not spent so much time processing out every little detail. Are you still sitting in the parking lot? Are you trying to figure out why you keep getting so many driving violations? Driving is major coordination. NLDers can succeed in these tasks but it may take a very long TIME and please be PATIENT.

In the area of visual-perception/visual-spatial, people with NLD have difficulty understanding and reading maps, charts, graphs, left, right, drawing complex figures, and understanding higher math such as geometry. Thank God for GPS, color by number,etch of sketch, and all the wonderful apps that are put on the magnificent IPAD for learning. STEVE JOBS and his wonderful team revolutionized the world. NLDers talk their way through situation. They are auditory-verbal learners and they need to hear what is being processed. A blue-tooth solves this problem of everyone staring when NLDers are processing out loud. From bumping into people, struggling with concept formation, and not getting the whole picture, they have the market cornered.

Social miscueing causes problems interpreting body language, and facial expression. People with NLD have problems in this area. Sometimes they stand too close (space invaders), or too far away when engaging in a conversation. It is hard for them to understand how to start a conversation or for them to end the conversation. If you can get them to deal with situation in a practical, sensible, and realistic manner versus philosophical or theoretical manner you are batting a thousand (pragmatic skills). They have outbursts, are labeled annoying , or want to get all the attention. NLDers just won’t let go, they hold on, have many social blunders, are abrupt/have knife cutting responses, and they have difficulty thinking creatively or abstractly. They have problems with identifying faces or reading the person’s face, interpreting gestures/deciphering body posture, An NLDer doesn’t change their speech, have a monotone voice, and constantly misjudge or misinterpret what is being put before them or said to them.

NLDers have attentional deficits causing difficulty in coping with over-stimulating or distracting environments and requiring them to have limited distractions and assistance in focusing themselves. They have difficulty in performing multiple tasks simultaneously causing them to need to do one thing at a TIME and LIMIT the amount of information they can take in at the same TIME(They CANNOT follow multiple commands given at once). Organizational skills are a huge problem area with NLDers. They have a very hard TIME organizing material on their own. Assistance is needed in the area of writing outlines, sequencing/order, planning, prioritizing, transitioning from one idea or aspect of a project/problem to another. Does this remind you of anyone? Feel free to go back and review the January Archives.

DEDICATED: Everyone across AMERICA, take a closer look at this diagnosis. I wonder why the AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION(APA), with 38,000 psychiatrists under their UMBRELLA failed to put NLD SYNDROME on the map after 41 years?

Why did the APA see fit to enlist diagnoses, such as sex addiction or internet addiction or other impertinent diagnoses that let people ESCAPE from being held ACCOUNTABLE for their INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS?

Dr. PHIL, DR. DREW, DR. OZ, DEEPAK CHOPRA and many other specialist in the field of medicine and psychiatry would probably agree with me. Too many people are severely hurt and have died from not being properly diagnosed or overlooked altogether.

Should the APA be held accountable for leaving Nonverbal Learning Disability(NLD), a neurological disorder with UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS off of their diagnostic manual? They are well aware that people who are diagnosed with this disorder can suffer from severe depression. Why did the APA stop testing? Why has there not been more information distributed on NLD Syndrome? Has the AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION been corrupted by money and politics to protect their funding?

Is the AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION trying to close the GAP on INTENTIONAL versus UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS? Or would it be our GOVERNMENT? Our government has been very dysfunctional. Take a look at the contenders for PRESIDENCY. Look even closer at the GOP, REPUBLICANS, TEA PARTY, BLUE DOG DEMOCRATS and some members of the CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCAS. We can tell from watching the debates the front-runners have serious problems. The weakest links will once again be controlled by the 1%. Who’s brain will be used if one of the contenders is chosen for President? Our JUSTICE SYSTEM has been very UNJUST. Our Supreme Court System is totally out of BOUNDS and off the Court. Our Constitution needs to be revamped.

Think about it AMERICA! Something is seriously wrong. Who should be held ACCOUNTABLE? Who is covering up?

Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep__An NLD Mother’s Prayer

It appears that certain government officials didn’t like the language of President Barack Obama’s Speech. I did not come here to defend the President because this is a man who can PRESS ON.

MAXINE WATERS, you may like your HIGH HEELS, you may not like wearing SLIPPERS. You say you work, you march, but you are sending a mixed message to the people. There are many ways which each individual can convey their message.

It appears you have a problem with understanding what others are trying to convey or even say. Are YOU listening? Do YOU have your own AGENDA?

Being candid can give people the impression in which your straight forwardness reflects no COMPASSION, EMPATHY, or SUPPORT. My son speaks candidly. He was diagnosed with NLD Syndrome at the age of 4 years 10 months. Now that he is older he has a very strong voice and tone. He is more like Chris Christie only a DEMOCRAT. Chris Christie has a very strong tone and so far there is no recanting of what he may say. I asked my son what is it about MAXINE WATERS that is disturbing about her political stance. He said, “If you go to the CREW you will find 15 MOST CORRUPT MEMBERS of CONGRESS on this LIST”. Yes, she is on the list and she has her own agenda. He also stated she was listed for the year 2006, 2007, and 2009. The future of government lies in the hands of our younger adults. How can we trust the platform of government officials if our elders behaviors are so poorly?

The behavior of Elected officials in government doesn’t match the words that come from their mouths. Maxine Waters has continued to insert her foot in her mouth and videotaped her A…. Yet rudeness has been placed upon the backs of those with NLD Syndrome. People diagnosed with NLD Syndrome bear the scars and wear the banners of curtness, inappropriate/unexpected behavior, behavior problems, angry/explosive and implosive behavior. Our society accused those with NLD Syndrome with acting out intentionally. Yet this behavior has been relentlessly displayed by Maxine Waters and many other government officials. You are in for a rude awakening if you know someone diagnosed with NLD Syndrome.They will wax your A… and continue to buff.

Sugar coating will never happen. Loyalty is a strong trait that NLDers carry which political officials need to borrow. Maxine Waters’ sense of loyalty will reveal itself on the evening news by once again recanting her statements. Showing her loyalty lies with her own personal agenda of having a political position in the year 2012. We are tired of our Government officials throwing each other under the bus. The behavior of our government is deplorable.

My son’s political stance is not to go golfing with John Boehner and feel comfortable with Mitch McConnell. We all know where he stands. Eric Canter blocks all and keeps everything for himself. Jim Demint’s followers,the Tea Party, are out of control. The Republicans and the Tea Party recants their statements all the TIME. As a race of people we need to support the INTELLIGENCE OF THE MIND and those decisions which will affect the lives of not just one RACE of people but for ALL the people.

Our young adults are taking a closer look at the political figures. Herman Caine announced he was a real black man. If you have to do a public service announcement on your manhood you fall short in a lot of areas. Herman Cain, Alan West, Jessie Lee Peterson, Lloyd Marcus, Star Parker and many others who are attached at the right hip of the Right Wing Extremists will get a friendly reminder from their GRAND MOO FA.

Rush Limbaugh, Grand MOO FA, his second in command Glenn Beck, and all of FOX NEWS will make a public service announcement to Herman Caine and his BLACK JACK GANG. It will be brief. The Grand Moo FA doesn’t think that African Americans are INTELLIGENT. Herman Caine shares those same beliefs and thinks we have been brainwashed into becoming DEMOCRATS. “You People” have confused the younger African Americans and we have accomplished our goal, stated the GRAND MOO FA. On the Tyra Banks show we saw African Americans wanting to be white. Younger adults wanting to belong to the KKK. Hell, even in grade school, smaller children are beginning to think dark skin is ugly and natural hair is nappy.

When smaller children are asked to pick out who is the smarter child, they picked out the one who is white. You guys have been just great in screwing up your race. You have served your Purpose and your services are no longer needed. “Herman Caine while you were out trying to discover your identity and put your BLACKNESS under the Microscope, I Rush Limbaugh, the Grand Moo FA, discovered something better.” You are not FREE to go. We Own you. What a Sell Out. Price of Success.

The Congressional BLACK CAUCUS and the BLUE DOG DEMOCRATS need to understand it is not just about the POLITICS of our government. This is about the lives of the PEOPLE and what is best for the PEOPLE.

Our children’s lives should pave the way for a brighter future. Our children’s lives are at great risk and they are no longer living out the full term of their life. A parents worst nightmare is to see their child in a coffin surrounded by other young adults. This is a permanent TIME OUT and Recess is over. Even if our children grow up it is hard to see them incarcerated, on death row, and murdered by a senseless death. Before my children were put to bed at night they would get on their knees and pray.

Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray the Lord My soul shall keep. If I should die before I wake. I pray the Lord my soul shall take. This prayer has been modified for todays children and young adults. Before I lay my head to rest. I pray to God I have done my best. When death comes for my soul, I pray to God my children grow old. AMEN! It is TIME TO PRESS ON. It is TIME for TIME_EXTENSION OF LIFE.

DEDICATED: To the future of our children. IN loving MEMORY of STEVE JOBS whose EXIT is NOW A PERMANENT ENTRANCE. You take a closer look at people and everything that surrounds your life. For the first TIME the field of ones life extends across the way. It is not dying from what you have but living with the TRUTH of what you have. The TRUTH of having your hands on DEATHS DOORWAY changes everything about you. Steve Jobs, myself, and many others who wear those shoes know what is TRULY IMPORTANT. The TRUTH is a powerful key and it will UNLOCK many doors. DISEASE AND DEATH is the LATCH that can be OPEN with the key of TRUTH. ACCEPTANCE of the TRUTH gives an extension to LIFE. DENIAL of the TRUTH shortens the desire to fight the LATCH of DISEASE and DEATH when you finally come to grips with the TRUTH.
