About Me

Demoralized, depressed, destroyed by American immigration law written and pushed for in 1952 by two xenophobes determined to keep people out.

Unpopular opinion: It always bothers me when people say "rule of law" and "the law is the law"

Law making has always been abused by those who scream the loudest to follow it.

Look at laws we have had in this country that law enforcement has blindly and robotically followed by saying "I'm just doing my job," "I'm just following orders," or "Talk to your Congressman, not me” as if turning off your humanity is a logical defense:

Laws preventing women from voting
Laws enabling slavery
Indian Removal Act
Slave codes to control the conduct of a slave
Fugitive Slave Law
Black Codes
Poll Tax
Jim Crow laws
Separate but equal laws
Chinese Exclusion Act
Asia Act - expanding the Chinese Exclusion Act to all Asians in 1924
Redlining Codes
Laws where you were old enough to kill but not to vote (Vietnam and 18-20 year olds)
Anti-miscegenation laws that would make my marriage illegal in 37 states before 1967
Anti-sodomy laws designed to make homosexual acts illegal
Anti-gay marriage laws
Anti Right to Die laws (dogs can be given a painless, merciful death, but humans need to suffer right to the end)
Pro-hanger for abortion laws
Outlawing obscenity laws (as Lenny Bruce said, if you outlaw the "F" word, you outlaw the ability to say "F the Government."
Civil Forfeiture laws
Qualified Immunity laws
Removal of civil rights laws for felons
Credit rating applying to car insurance premiums laws
USA PATRIOT Act (that was supposed to be temporary)

In colonial times, in Maryland, you could be arrested and executed if you didn't worship Jesus in some way or another.
In the Bay Colony, you could lose everything if you didn't follow the theocratic laws.

Laws are about control. Who is getting controlled and who is doing the controlling? Usually, it's white, christian, heterosexual men who try to control everyone (and have your centuries). Now that non-white, non-Christian, non-male, and non-straight are gaining social, political, and economic power, there is an insane pushback.

Gandhi said it best: First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win. We are now at stage three.

And all these voting restriction laws, these are a problem looking for a solution because the Republicans LOST in the election.

Law making is a process that is abused by those with a hidden agenda.

I just won overall winner at a Vancouver BC film festival with my psychological thriller


I also won Best Children's Screenplay for my piece Clyde and Bear.

This is my 9th film festival win.

I wonder how long before people take notice that make films.

From all teachers like me RE: teacher appreciation week: You're all welcoome

Think nothing of it. It's what we do because we love our subjects and touching lives.

Broadway nailed conservatives - Jack Warner demanded this be edited from the movie

to appeal to his friend Richard Nixon.

Still relevant.

Just a simple question: If all these "cool, conservative men" are just self-proclaimed ladies' men,

why does it seem they are always getting caught paying for sex?

Are they truly losers?
Control and domination?
Gaslighting and manipulation?

Gaetz, Trump, Vitter, etc. . .just to name a few.

At least Sanford met his lady legitimately when he cheated on his wife to go hiking the old Appalachian Trail, which apparently started in Maine and ending in a South American woman's vagina.

BTW, let's see if anyone gets the reference for the "cool, conservative men" part.

I have a question about buying a car that has never happened to me until Monday.

I just bought my camaro at a small dealership here in Tucson.

I have financing through my credit union and have met the terms of the loan.

I took possession of the car, which has temporary plates, a week ago. Dealer told me that the emissions and registration with the State were completed, which I have evidence of in my files.

We agreed to meet at my credit union on Monday to settle the lien with the credit union and give the dealer the down payment, which I offered in cash three times before, which he refused to take.

The dealer never came. Since then, the dealer's phone numbers have been disconnected and I cannot get a hold of the dealer.

When I get the plates, I will assume I will get the title. If that happens, my question is. . .have I bought a car without paying for it, since if the title is including with the plates and registration, I legally own the car?

Again, this has never happened to me and I want to remain honest. I did this in good faith, even the credit union says we both can do nothing until the dealer fulfills their end of everything.

If the dealer skipped town, what do I do to make it legally mine? I am in Arizona.

Someone needs to tell Joe Manchin, Re: DC statehood to read the following:

Article IV, Section 3, Clause 1 of the US Constitution.

We don't need a constitutional amendment, you fool.
