2 + 1 = 3 = 1 + 2


Lately I have been inundated with the folks jaw-jacking on how the world is working. I say jaw-jacking because that’s all they are doing. All this talking is yielding no action.

Obama is screwing up the economy and country… Umm… do the 1. The country was screwed up since its inception. Bush fucked us royally with no lube. And the people crying ain’t ever had a good gold flow. But I suppose it’s easier for those that have been taught to eat the wrong foods and who like the devil when the devil gives them nothing have an easier time assigning blame to folks that look like themselves rather than the devils that actually did it. Teach yourself some politics before you repeat what you hear.

The Black woman is at fault for fucking and bossing the Black man. This has resulted in babies without daddies and the destruction of the Black race! Really? Dumb mother fuckers… You don’t see that what you are bitching about is not new? That people, Black and white, have been having children out of wedlock and with multiple partners for millennia? Are you really this uninformed? Have you not realized that the instances of teen pregnancy are at an all time low… since the 1940’s! And the Women who are currently making babies are old enough to afford it without Medicaid. Yeah, you don’t get to tell grown women when and where to procreate and how to spend their money. That is eugenics and eugenics is wrong.

The problem I cee is that people (a) are just plain ignorant/full of themselves, thinking that other people actually care how strangers see them and (b) are focusing on what they ideologically would like to have rather than what the literally do have, can have, and should have. EXAMPLE: I have a former friend whose brother hit the lottery for millions. Not wanting to leave any on his family behind, he offered non cash gifts to them and set up college accounts for their children. For this former friend, the brother offered to purchase her a brick and mortar home. 100%. She, a customer service rep who had a GED and that’s it, went out and chose a home that cost $250,000. And this was before the housing market collapse. The brother asked her, how she’d pay the insurance, taxes and utilities because after purchasing the house, for her she would be on her own. Even suggested that she buy a smaller dwelling. Nope. Girlfriend had her heart set on that big assed, quarter of a million dollar house. She lived in that house for 2 years, with the utilities in a constant state of flux. She eventually lost it to taxes. Now she lives in a ghetto apartment complex… again. See what I mean? Even if she had sold it, she could have pocketed all the money since the house was in her name. She wanted something that she wasn’t ready for and didn’t have the mind set to conquer.

It is a statistical fact that in Original homes in the wilderness of North America, are more than likely governed by single mothers. That is the reality. It would be nice if it wasn’t but how can another control what grown folks do? Especially when it comes to sweet, sweet love. Folks are already creeping. We are going to get it in. But mandating that a woman marry her “baby daddy” is stupid. Which one? And which one of the “baby mamas” should the man marry? Polygamy? Again stupid. Men now a days can’t handle 1 woman. Do you really think by loading him up with more is going to work out better? What folks need to do is focus on the reality of the situation rather than what they want to see. Because that is usually poisoned by religion, media, and a whole bunch of other dumb shit.

You have women who have a bunch of kids with a bunch of men and no jobs…. Get them jobs. Babies... no, EVERYBODY need food, clothing and shelter. Universal healthcare would be nice too. Give them education to go along with the jobs. Education leads to dreams. Dreams lead to temperance. EXAMPLE: When I was a child, I dreamed of becoming a doctor. That included 8 years of expensive education after high school. I saw girls with babies in high school that couldn’t even finish their GEDs! I knew if I wanted said vocation, I had to be careful when loving. And I did. I achieved my ambition, because I was allowed to dream. But if you have a woman with no dreams whatever happens, happens.

And yes I agree that this economy is shitty. Real shitty. We have to accept that. And if you really look at the situation, it will not go back to what it was in the past. Companies now a days have laid off chunks of their work force. Those remaining, in fear for their jobs, have picked up the slack and said companies are still turning out the same production. Why would they ever rehire the people they laid off? Why should they pay more salaries and benefits to turn out the same production? Does that make sense to you? Companies still hire, but they are only hiring what they can’t function without.

So where does that leave us? We need to be mindful of living within our means and that also includes living off 1 salary. Now I know that sounds foreign to a lot of people, and retro to others. But it is done every day. I see single mothers with 4 kids making things happen. If you have a nuclear family with 2 kids and all the parts; and 1 parent works, the other parent can cook, clean, provide daycare, etc. And they just have to live within the working parent’s means. It can work. I’ve seen it. The people in my parent’s generation had what I consider truly shitty jobs. My father in law worked at a dry cleaners yet owned 2 homes and raised 7 children and assorted grandchildren. My mother has a friend who worked on the line of Nabisco and supports her husband (who was always chasing some dream) home and 2 kids. The God’s father was a steel worker with a home, stay at home wife and 2 seeds. Think of your grandmothers who did “day work” yet managed to send children to college. It can be done. But sacrifices will have to be made, and re-education is required.

Considering today’s Supreme Mathematics Wisdom Knowledge abbt Understanding, Yes Knowledge + Wisdom yields Understanding, and for some this may be the preferable (Right) way to do things, but the reality (Universal- because this is the way things work for most people) is many gain their Understanding by reacting to events in their lives (Wisdom) first then they have to figure out (Knowledge) The solutions (Understanding). And if the result is the same… Well then we can dwell on the particulars in the next generation.

We have shit to do. Let’s do it.
