Murder in the Oklahoma Express Lane

Evidently some republicans are not happy with the George Floyd verdict and have taken it upon themselves to pass some shitty new law, HB 1674, that allows motorists to run down and murder anyone who is at a protest or riot. WTF, right? Nope, not kidding and you can consult the “Google” to verify it yourself. So, … who usually protests? Well lately it has been the BLM Black LIVES Matter crowd. But those aren’t just black people protesting. I have to say that I am just appalled at the evil behind this bill. Surely the President or congress will intervene. Who needs to use a knee when you can just slam on the gas and run down everyone you hate and have no repercussions. Wow. Just wow. Fucking douche bag politicians. I curse you fuckers. I am pretty sure those bible banging assholes know that one of the ten commandments is thou shall not kill. We ALL know that. It is like common knowledge. If Georgia is getting heat from major corporations for a simple water voting bill/law, I can’t even imagine what the fall out from this is going to be. Well, sit back, get some snacks, wait and watch for the next round of the republican shit show.

*

And if you think that “maybe” there are two sides of the George Floyd story, you might be slightly entertained by Ben Shapiro’s highly opinionated review of the trial/outcome. My viewpoint “Thou shall not kill”. Let me ask this question, “What happened to just detaining a perp with handcuffs?” Subject is in custody and is no harm to anyone. Why the excessive force and violence? Because … ex-cop bully Derek was/is a racist hater. He would have never done that to a white supremacist. Do you know what they do to cops in prison? Sorry, ex-cops in prison. I hope they put him in the same prison with the convicts HE personally put away. I wonder, will he get the Jeffrey Epstein VIP treatment, or will they keep him confined for his own protection?

Self Defense

So let me ask you this question, “If you were attacked, by one person, like a fist fight, how or what would you do to defend yourself?” Do you carry any weapons? Keys? Mace? Perhaps even a pocket knife or even maybe a gun? Most people don’t carry a weapon, but with the way things are going these days it might be more than we think. When I was a kid my parents enrolled my twin brother and myself into a dojo to learn karate. They thought that we might get picked on since we were Asian and smaller than kids our own age. Yep, they were right. Fortunately for us, 2 against 1 usually wins. They did not anticipate us using it on each other. Remember the movie “The Karate Kid”? Super old movie, but a good one. I think there was even a spin off that is on Netflix. One swift punch in the bread basket will shut someone up real fast. And then while he is bent over gasping for breath, a knee to the chin will finish him off. Remember that when you are confronted in a fight.
*
Depending on that situation, … the one where you were attacked, what would you do? Pull out your gun? Run? Whip out your Swiss Army knife and prepare for battle? Oh wait… some people might pull out their smartphone and record it or go LIVE. If you are being attacked by a police officer I am pretty sure I would do a livestream, on my business page, YouTube app, SnapChat, Instagram AND TikTok all at the same time. I think that if you say “Hey Siri I am being pulled over” it actually activates the video recorder. As we all know, you can be pulled over for almost anything and be doing nothing wrong and die for it. Scary world we live in. Or should I say, scary world we die in.  So if you weren’t online or connected yesterday, then you wouldn’t have been dominated by the George Floyd murder trial. All jurors voted guilty and the world celebrated. Yay. One down a thousand more to go. We still have to see what the sentence will be. Will the “system” slap him on the wrists and let him out in 5 for good behavior? Remember in 13 Reasons Why, when the rapist got off easy because he was white and rich? As long as the world sees us as colored people, we have to do things to ensure our safety. When I am pulled over I always tell the officer I am a children’s author. If they are going to stereotype me, do it right.

On a side note, Vudu.com is having a sale on television series in HDX. I scored Nikita (a assassin show like Point of No Return) and Glee. The entire series for Glee was only $35! It is normally like, $375, so that is a no brainer. Hey I was in the swing choir in high school so I can totally relate to all the high school drama.  I still think the first season was the best. And sometimes the cover artist does it better than the original. [Not sponsored by anyone so no endorsements from any company]

AND I saw nothing on the Columbine shooting yesterday. Sometimes people forget. Loving thoughts prayers and healing to those affected by a mass shooting. I use Reiki, so I am sending those healing energies as well.

Life is short. Pamper yourself.

As a seasoned veteran in the sales arena, one of my favorite techniques to  manipulate customers was the “pamper yourself” technique. I don’t think I invented it, but I never – I repeat never – have ever seen another sales person use it effectively on a prospect. So what exactly IS this magical technique that I would apply ever so carefully? Well, first of all, buying and selling is a relationship activity. Anyone who is paid an actual commission, and no base salary understand how important it is to really connect with that prospect. Depending on what you are selling and who you are selling it to can make a huge difference. Sure anyone can “close” a sale, but can you maximize your new friend to spend twice as much? I can.

*

So I think  my favorite place that I used this was working in the jewelry store. I wasn’t REALLY on commission but I had an aggressive sales goal that meant I could not rely on impulse purchases to get there. I sold over $200k in my first month. And that is a heck of a lot of diamonds. And we all know that a “No thanks, I’m just looking” really means, “Hey salesman, convince me to buy something I totally don’t need, but really want.” Don’t you just love a challenge? Yeah, me too. I think “Oh, it’s is ON.” First of all, no one just browses when they really want to buy. Oh sure we would all LOVE to have whatever and just buy it. Guess what? Some people have a shitload of money and a grand here or there doesn’t even budge the needle on the stress level scale. So ask your prospect a simple question that will get the wheels turning. “When was the last time you spoiled yourself or bought something nice?” Good one huh? For some reason it is a simple question that people don’t ask enough, of their prospects, new customers, loyal patrons, friends and family. I actually had a salesman who worked for me when I ran a Cingular store and he used to say “Treat yourself.” And he would sell more accessories than anyone. Nifty trick. Like a $130 bluetooth headset was an ice cream cone or something. Now obviously if you sell something like insurance, you probably won’t get the same results.

*

My other closing sales line was “I usually buy what I want since my significant other is not a mind reader and if I hate doing returns/exchanges.” That usually got a good laugh. Or maybe the “Hi, I’m fucking awesome and no one gives me a holiday or special day.” Sometimes people just need someone to approve of their expensive purchase and say it is okay to actually spend money on yourself. I do it all the time. Every day is a celebration when you don’t have kids (to pay for things), a mortgage, a car payment or student loans right? With the current state of … the world, I guess you could say “Hey I am spending money on me because I was screwed out of every holiday/celebration/wedding/birthday because of COVID. Think of all the money you would have spent on gifts and airline tickets alone! There are literally millions of people who got a stimulus check that weren’t directly affected, but who wouldn’t take free money right? We all want to win the lottery. Some people act like this small check of $1400 is like a winning scratch ticket. Funny right? My dentist took mine and it wasn’t enough. There is such a big push on affordable healthcare but no one gives a shit about our teeth. Love my dentist but I feel like I am financing a car. I’m afraid to go in for a cleaning as it always ends up being more than just a cleaning. Sure, I need some new laser procedure for my gums. No, it is not free and not covered by insurance.

*

And the trial for the murder of George Floyd is fucking ridiculous. He was murdered. End of story. Terminate his killer. Congressman Matt Gaetz is a disgusting pedophile (which hasn’t been stated anywhere in the media) and should be imprisoned. I guess since he isn’t the president and doesn’t need 60 votes to convict him, he is gonna get it. I’m sure Liz Cheny is laughing her ass off now. I told you they turn on each other. White republican … sorry white entitled republican. Karma is a bitch and in one of my future books, the karma angels are going to finally have their day in the spotlight.

Go buy something nice, cool or awesome for yourself. There are millions who saved for a rainy day and never got to spend it. I’ve been buying expensive face masks on Ipsy that tighten my skin and make me look even younger. I’ll be 48 in July but I still get carded at every casino and bar. My favorite mask is by Generation Clay, the pink clay one. And since you know I don’t take bribes, I am not sponsored by them or anyone. If you try it, get the one on Amazon, it is cheaper.

Why white people hate black people so much.

It is in the genes. They can’t help it. Their great great great great grandfather was a slave owner. Damn. Actually, what I am getting at is the reason voting is so important. Fun little fact, long long ago when the blacks were freed from slavery, they were not technically considered citizens, and they certainly could not vote. Back then, the white people made it a law that you could only vote if you were a property owner. Well, you can imagine how many of those there were.

*

I don’t need to go down the long list of ways that the white man has been evil to all other races. Shall I even go into American Indians? Damn. Pulling all the punches today. Let’s talk about the thousands and thousands of massacres that happened on this semi-great nation. It’s not just black people that white people try to control. It is anyone who is not like them. And even within their own — they hate and kill each other for no real justifiable reason. If the Indians has semi automatic weapons instead of bows and arrows, would this even BE the United STATES of America? Or would each of us be in an Indian named territory? I think someone needs to write a sci-fi back in time thriller that shows that scenario.

*

 

Democrats are quick to blame guns for deaths. But let’s be real. More people die in car crashes because of stupid mistakes and shitty tires. Holy crap you should have seen all the accidents with a tiny bit of snow. Does anyone go after tire manufactures for not creating better tires? Somewhere along the lines of history man thought he was better than others.

*

Slavery is not new in American history. Slaves in Egypt. Slaves in Asia. Sad, but it is true. Even today there are people who are working for pennies an hour/day, for hard work. What if … that negative energy of “hate” actually stimulates the virus somehow? The virus feeds on energy, and it probably doesn’t care or distinguish between good energy and bad energy. Feelings are energy too. Perhaps that is why we pray when someone is sick. Sending them positive energy to fight the negative.

And Godzilla vs. King King releases today, on a Wednesday in theaters and HBO Max. I saw it, loved all the priors, even Skull Island. This one sort of let me down. A big movie like this you would have thought they would have cast some famous actors, or some eye candy to keep you slightly entertained. Meh. If you have HBO Max, watch it. If you were going to the theater, you may feel like me in the end. And since I suffer from West Nile virus I am on the priority list to get my shot tomorrow for COVID. Thank God. The angels are looking out for me. Namaste friends.

The Trump Tax Cut?

So if you were blithely unaware, a few years ago Trump gave billion dollar corporation tax cuts, with the hope and fantasy that the trickle down effect would impact everyone. Well, I am a shareholder for Best Buy, who also got a big tax cut. Did employees get any of that money? Did the shareholders get a dividend that I wasn’t aware of? That’s right, the answer is no. The fucking greedy bastards kept it all for themselves. Oh sure, some tenured Walmart employees got a bone thrown at them, like hey, good work, we just saved billions, here’s a penny for your thoughts, which don’t count. Because history repeats itself and as long as anyone can remember the rich people are favored and the poor people are treated like second class citizens. Well it looks like the corporate rate of 21% is increasing to 28%, and when you are a big company like apple, Google, Walmart, AT&T or Best Buy, that percentage comes to millions. So yes, the federal government will be able to finance some of those stimulus checks, but as a negative repercussion, those retailers and companies will increase prices. I just got a message that my Disney+ was going up by a couple of bucks. I guess those premier releases (Mulan, Onward) haven’t been as profitable and with limited attendance at their parks, they need some cash.

It really is sad that republicans in Georgia are also being sabotaged by their own party. As I said the other day, the republicans have woken a sleeping giant, and now they are going to have a really hard time putting it back to sleep. If you didn’t know, Georgia passed a law making it illegal to give someone water while standing in line to vote. WTF. Right? Where the hell was MY water when I was standing in line to vote? hahahaha. Just kidding. I vote by mail, just like the millions of others in Colorado. And while OUR voting rights are not being attacked, our virus here is, and starting this week EVERYONE will be eligible to get a vaccination shot. Wow. And I didn’t inquire with anyone, but I am pretty sure they are not going to require a drivers license or proof of citizenship to get the shot. Yeah, we aren’t assholes here. I had to say it. And if you didn’t know it, baseball opens this week here in Denver with the Colorado Rockies allowing 21,000 people to attend in person. If you are over 18 you can get the 1 shot Johnson & Johnson. Yay us for us old people.

 

Disney+ released a new series. All I see are these stupid Captain America memes. Yep, waiting til episode 6 launches then I’ll watch the falcon. I’m currently into Titans, a DC spin off of Batman, focused on the sidekick, Nightwing, who is not a nice guy. So far, I really like it. Superman & Lois airs tonight, and while I thought I would really like it, I’m just not that into it. They are focused on the supertwins who have no real powers, alternate timelines, … way too many variables to actually focus on a real plot. So far it is just a “meh” from me.

Boulder Kings Sooper Shooting

Tragedy strikes the small mountain town nestled in the foothills of the rocky mountains yesterday as a killer runs rampant in a Kings Soopers grocery store killing 10 people in cold blood, including a Boulder police officer. Names of the victims have not been released yet, as families have not all been contacted. The killer was apprehended and taken into custody. The gunman’s weapon of death was an automatic weapon, an AR-15. As of now, no motive has been uncovered. The name of the shooter also has not been released yet. He is a white male approximate 30-40’s, dark hair with a beard. When he was taken into custody he was shirtless, had no pants on, and his leg was red with blood. So Columbine, Aurora Theaters, Thornton Walmart, and Boulder Kings Sooper. Boulder is most known for their infamous Labor Day “Boulder Bolder” marathon.

So last week it was spas in Atlanta, and this week grocery store in Boulder. When I said sit back and watch the fireworks, I wasn’t kidding!

The Fear of God

Well that sure is a strong title for blog article isn’t it? Why yes, yes it is. It was designed for some people to stop what they are doing and pay attention. Why should/would I fear God? Because you are lost. You forgot who your master is. Every single person on this planet believes in some higher power. So let’s rewind a few thousand years when Pharaoh had thousands of slaves and Moses said “Let my people go.” Well, we all know he didn’t, and so forth came the wrath of God. The first born of every family and animal all were terminated. By God, or actually by his angels. God doesn’t destroy, he just watches and orders his angels to do his bidding. How do I know this? It’s like common knowledge, but if you insist on knowing further, God actually talks with me. Daily. And I talk to God, daily. Y’all call it prayer in some cultures. I call it conversation, enlightenment, self actualization. What — did you think God only talked to Moses and that was it? Well, that would make things pretty boring if all you did was sit around and listen and never talked. Well, God actually talks THROUGH many of his champions … like me. No seriously, sometimes there is a message he needs someone to hear and they aren’t listening. Remember in WandaVision when the FBI guy was trying to get through to Wanda through the radio? Same thing, except “I” am the radio, and God knows one of my readers will pay attention.

*

So what is the message? Ready? Stop the hate. Stop the hurt. Or you will get hurt. Wow, that is pretty powerful if you ask me. WHAT if, … your guardian IS keeping score and at some point the wrath of God will come and terminate those who he feels is full of hate? What if someone you love is going to have to pay for YOUR hate? Everyone has hate in them, even me. I hate spammers and robocalls. But that is not the same as hating on an individual because of skin color, voice accent, or a physical trait. It has been a very long time that people have worshiped the Lord as churches have been closed for over a year. Yes, God knows who is still praying and not praying, who is a good kind person and who is a piece of shit. Some of those pieces are going to get it in the next life.

 

A friend will stand up for you when you need help. A true friend will stand up for you when you are not present. Be a friend to someone who needs your help.

Those who worship a false god, a statue made of gold, will certainly face dire consequences. (Not my words, I’m just the messenger).

Stop The Hurt

I know a lot of my readers are just as confused as I am. What am I talking about you may ask? Well, if you didn’t know, yesterday an Asian killing happened in Atlanta and this was clearly a hate crime, despite the murderer (in custody) saying it wasn’t. So my YouTube news was flooded with videos and news commentary about the situation, and OMG this is seriously getting out of hand. First of all, they are attacking geriatric fossils who can’t defend themselves. Like, hey, let’s go pick on some fifth graders so we can feel like a big bully.

*

 

If I was witness to that happening to ANY elder person, regardless of race, background religion or whatever, it would be the WRATH OF AARON and I gotta say, it would not be pretty. 35 years of virtual training on a gaming console has left me with some very valuable skills. Yes, that’s right, I have a 9mm handgun. If EVERY person was armed, I think there would be a heck of a lot less attacks. How many first person shooter games have YOU played? How many hundreds of hours looking down a scope for the enemy? I think every Asian needs to be armed with at least a stun gun tazer, so when they see it happening to someone being attacked they can attack back. Shit I’d hit him with a fucking flare gun right at the head. Yes, seriously. Okay, I don’t carry a flare gun, but I carry my keys and I would have no problem paralyzing someone from the neck down. One swift hit in the back of the neck and it would be vegetable city forever. I took a few classes here and there. One thing to remember if you are ever held at gun point, give them your wallet, throw it on the ground and run like hell.

 

I do not promote violence, but when it comes to fight or flight, I will do both. And Dexter taught me how to bleed someone out very easily.

Choose Your Side Wisely

So I know a lot of my readers are not on Facebook, and that is totally cool. I personally know of dozens of friends in real life who don’t even have an account. But they still have email. So anyway, I saw this in my newsfeed and it really hit home. I personally do not understand why the republican party thinks that their constituents/voters have not been impacted by the virus, and that only rich people are republicans. Because CLEARLY all the uneducated red neck rioters at the capital were NOT the upper crust of society. 75 million people are republican. As I stated in my last post, everyone needs/wants money. We don’t all make 174k a year like a senator does. Most of them are all millionaires already. It’s like all the rich kids got together and decided to bully all the poor kids (us) and now they can kind of get away with it. Oh wait, some people, still do get away with it.

*

 

I had a friend who is a republican and I asked her WHY she was her party. She said she didn’t want people who don’t deserve shit getting shit when she has to pay for it. Like free healthcare when you are an illegal. Wow. I realized at that point my “friend” was a shitty person and it was best to part ways. I did however, ask her if I could see her immigration health bill. Her what? You know, the bill that she was sent that specifically covered illegal healthcare. Oh, she didn’t have one. So I told her to grow the F up and be a better person. One day, she or someone she loves is going to need assistance from someone, and she better pray that is readily available. What if, say in 50 years the population somehow has become dominant non-white? Say only 1% of the doctors are white. Then what? There are so many people that “think” their perspective or outlook is the only one. You can be king of the world one day, and then banished the next.

*

So if you live in a state where you voted for a republican congress-person or senator, it is clear that your representative does NOT have YOUR best interests at heart. They are selfish, greedy, corrupt politicians who are only looking out for themselves. It is horrible and evil that the republicans are doing things to cheat the American people. Suppressing the vote so it is harder for everyone to vote is not cool. They can’t win legitimately so they do things to put the odds in their favor. And I want to throw a huge shout out to Stacey Abrams of Georgia, who spearheaded the movement to get thousands of new voters registered, which resulted in the democrats winning control of the senate, and ultimately passed this COVID relief plan, which Biden says we will see checks this month. I think I can speak for millions when I say that any amount of assistance is greatly appreciated. As always, we give thanks that we made it yet, another day in the pandemic.

*

Can you imagine the chaos if the bill was written that you only get a check if your Representative voted for it? Trump said if you posted on social media #notmypresident you wouldn’t get a stimulus check. And isn’t it ironic how millions didn’t get one in the second round? If a senator got thousands and thousands of calls, letters, emails, and texts saying I am a voter in your district and I am not voting for you, I think that might get some attention. Imagine for just a moment, if TEN more senate seats were won for the democrats. Yeah, the rich people would be in trouble. Go Senator Warren. I support you 100%! Bezo you are in trouble. And remember, folks, those tariffs on China haven’t been lifted, so your apple iPhones and Nintendo Switches all get hit, …. which means you get hit.

Tax The Super Rich

The United States of America COULD be the best country in the world. We have the resources, the money, and the land to build a tiny house for every single legal citizen and every undocumented person who wants to live here. Millions of empty land all over this country and trillions of dollars in the government. Seriously, if the government really wanted to do it, they could very easily buy up land, and build massive communities of tiny homes. They could even do a universal basic income for everyone, and not even feel it. Other counties do it. A place to get mail, sleep safe and sound. A place to call home. It would also clean up so many dirty, nasty “tent” cities. If I was Jeff Bezo I could snap my fingers and make it happen. But I’m not, so I can just write about how great life could be, … if I was Jeff.

*

Everyone wants free money. Almost everyone wants to win the lottery. Who wouldn’t want free money if the government gave it. Well there are certainly going to be some people that will finally benefit from the Biden Stimulus package. But lets be real. $1400 is not a lot of money. Oh sure to some people it means being able to eat 3 times a day instead of 2. For families that don’t get food stamps, that extra financial support for those kids is going to be a real big deal. I think we all know there are over 75 million republicans. It’s not just democrats that are needing money. The reality is that our economy can’t survive with just rich people. It can’t survive with just poor people There is a happy balance somewhere where we all can work and live together harmoniously.

I think that when your company becomes SO super rich, that it needs to give huge wins back in forms of scholarships, grants, programs, or they get taxed at the higher rate. Come on, it is SO not fair that Amazon pays no federal income tax. They make billions and I pay more tax than they do. What. The. F.  When rich people get their stimulus money they just deposit in their money market account, which does nothing for the economy. In Colorado, millions will be cashing that bad boy and using it in the closest dispensary and heading to the liquor store. Fact. Dispensaries saw a HUGE influx in cash/customers with the last 2 stimulus checks. Hey if they are locked up at home, at least they are happy, relaxed and enjoying their Disney+.

WandaVision … what can I say? I liked it. I loved it. I can’t wait for season 2. And if you weren’t aware, there are TWO secret scenes after the credits. Seriously. Those sneaky bastards. Naked & Afraid new season starts Sunday, with a marathon on the Discovery channel all day.
