Something Isn’t Working

Well up till now the post’ I’ve left here have pertained to the struggles of me getting this site up and the progress of my books. Today I’m going to write about the kind of stuff this site was intended for. Before I start though, I want to reconfirm something! this is a writing site, with a strong lean toward songs or poems. I reconfirm that, because I’m going to touch on something sort of political and controversial, but someone like me can take that and get a song or a poem out of it. This is life going on around you, get something out of it! I choose to write about it!

Today is August 14, 2017, I’m sure most folks are now aware of what happened on the 12th. I’m not going to get into the whole thing, as I’m not wishing to write a book on it. I think one could conclude that 2 separate sides clashed over something as inconsequential as the movement an old statue. A statue that could’ve depicted a way of life or a heritage for some, unfortunately for others, that statue also depicts a negative connotation of a bygone era. End result is, it was legislated to move the statue along with some others of the same nature. A group of redneck derelicts that don’t live in that area, chose to use this as a platform to show their stupidity and intolerance for their fellow man. Another group of individuals chose to counter demonstrate the initial demonstration. You have 2 opposing views out there, of course some heads are going to roll. Long story short, this ended in tragedy with 3 people dying, and the blood is on the rednecks hands; stupid people should not be granted certain rights. Politically, maybe the city of Charlottesville should’ve issued 2 separate permits. Each group could’ve had their little protest without conflict, and gone home feeling like they had done their part. Instead here it is Monday morning there are a few individuals in jail(one of whom will stay), there are people mourning the deaths of loved ones, and cleaning up the mess of what was a bad weekend.

People died and one ruined the rest of his 20 year old life, while one redneck Jason Kessler might’ve enhanced his meaningless livelihood, for having been one of the organizers of this mess. Three people will rise no more for the sake of a statue that symbolized something over a hundred years old. That statue is still there, those 3 people aren’t! People life is a gift that should be cherished, why would you go throw it away on something as insignificant as a statue. Two were doing their job, which at the time, was protecting idiots from themselves. One was an innocent counter protester who would’ve been better off to have stayed home.

Nothing was accomplished! People died for no good reason, and the statue will still be moved. One dumb punk redneck will spend a good portion of the rest of his life in jail. He made the rednecks look even worse by mimicking a terrorist act incorporated by those who really do hate us. Maybe these cities should be more careful about issuing permits to protest, and maybe the ACLU should use some common sense about certain rights. If people can’t have a peaceful organized protest, and I think everyone knew this one couldn’t be one. Then shouldn’t the city that’s being targeted be allowed to say no? Our freedoms are great! but stupid people will cause the policing of those freedoms. If a city or a community sees a threat or a danger due to a protest, it should have the right to say no. Those are taxpaying dollars to pay those police to try and protect the idiots. Lives lost and lives ruined and for what?

If you can read between the lines there, I’m not trying to take a political stance with sides. Kessler’s at fault for not having a life, The ACLU is at fault for not allowing a municipality to say no. The people are at fault for not using common sense, and that statue is still there, and some dumb son of a bitch will be blaming it before it’s over.

Does anyone wonder the value of life? Stop and look at the big picture, weather religious or not. Look at the way you’re put together, your thought processes, your abilities and disabilities, your whole genetic make up, the DNA part of you, and every other living organism. You were put together with some kind of forethought, more so than I wish to get into right here. The gist of this part of the story is, we all have to die! make sure you live before you die! and don’t throw your life away on something absurdly insignificant. I would say don’t throw your life away at all, as it is a precious thing, and you only get one. Perhaps one should think about that when it comes to our soldiers, what are they throwing their lives away for? Do you think it’s for the stupidity that happened over the weekend? or is it for the arrogance of a man of color and privilege to sit during the anthem to show his disdain for those who helped him obtain his right to do just that? As one should practice some wisdom as to what they throw their lives away for, like wise they should practice some wisdom as to what and how they choose to protest. I’m guessing today’s lines should somehow reflect what’s been written here, and hopefully someone will find it an enlightening little practice. Thanks R.A Jordan

Today I saw the fools show up marching in the street,

many stood for hatred, and their fellow they can’t greet.

No one’s really right out there, trying to express their views,

many folks have just shown up trying to make the news.
