Cataloguing Suffering

Some Sex Offenders Opt for Castration

 This philosophy had no place among the believers of Judeo-Christian law, so why has America determined this law to be plausible or justifiable?

Zip Codes should not determine our destinies?

This is the new campaign structure of many social movements. For a decade it was the health care bills, or quote on quote, “The lack of fairness in the industry on who is seen by a doctor and who is not seen.”

The argument got so bad, most physicians and pharmaceutical companies were seen as, “dope pushers.”  Surely you remember when our last President thought the average American’s medicine closet and the use of those pain medications  was no different then the drug addict using in the ally ways of Washington D.C.

Well because the campaign against drugs and health care and the deliberation about who supplies America and who does not supply America with the codeine or opioids needed for pain medication that is either used by responsible Americans or addicts, has not been defined and neither party really wants a definition. We call it a stalemate.

Since no one can really say weather or not Medical Marijuana or “the illegal kind” is really going to help anyone, they just don’t speak on it and will continue to pack people away that are found using it. Special  use cards aside. It is a stalemate. What’s next on the agenda?

Zip Codes.

Redistricting most of the American cities will play a key factor in how people are made to interact with each other.  From education, to healthcare, to the penal system. Not that there will be any real change. I think it is safe to assume that it has always “mattered” (to those who care) where you live and how you were raised, (ones “environment,”) was always a determining factor in how one was treated. Should be no surprise how the parties agendas begin to move on the general public in the coming year when it comes to job placement and social arrangements based upon new data that is developed through there deliberations.

Just last year Alexandra Bernadotte, Founder and CEO of Beyond 12 gave her bid on how she feels about zip codes and how it will help her in the avenues of education. So many leaps are being taking on old agendas it seems. Everyone wants to get there foot in the door.

USA Gymnastics doctor to plead guilty to child porn charges!

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/usa-gymnastics-doctor-to-plead-guilty-to-child-porn-charges/ar-BBE53lF?li=BBnbfcL&ocid=U220DHP

When you read the above article you become very aware of how tainted our world has become.

It is tainted not because the man spent the last 20 years allegedly chasing after young girls on a University Campus and making them feel assaulted and abused as the paper suggests and he pleaded to.

It is tainted because after all he went through to clean his life up and still gets caught, shows you just how far the legal system is willing to go to prove a man or woman is a danger to society for the individual choices.

They are burning down the streets over Planned Parenthood rights,

They are burning down the streets over Freedoms of Speech,

They are arresting and dragging men to court for alleged charges and forcing people to plead guilty to “heinous crimes,” with no further proof aside from, “hearsay.”

The formal plea agreement has not been filed in federal court, and no plea hearing has been scheduled. His next scheduled appearance is for August.

Matt Newburg, one of Nassar’s attorneys, declined to comment.

Do you know what is next for that man, because his lawyer declined to defend his client?

https://www.geogroup.com/Locations

Can someone please inform me as to why any corporation anywhere needs, 80,566 beds in a span of 74 facilities. Are there really that many crimes to be committed? Are there really that many Americans committing crimes, or are there that many projectable incomes from the sustaining power of governmental spending?

Are they really using the internet to promote what is deemed legal in the state of California and out west to inadvertently incarcerate and imprison grown able body men for no other reason than for being able bodied men?

I tell you they do the same to women?

Not for crimes that would make anyone cringe but for the things we do privately in our own homes, The very things that they said they were separating from the State Bar. They wanted freedom from religion yet imprison a man or woman for prostitution. In a secular community, prostitution is fine is it not?

Homosexuality is fine is it not? Yet the bible already gave you the law and many in the courts have placed themselves above the rule of law of the bible and show no grace; Instead the make millions off of Plea Bargons!

Because of this man’s “heinous crime,” he will be fed 4 ounces of food. He will be asked to find a job in the worst part of town where everyone is on welfare and where they do not hire, “sex offenders.” They will call it gainful employment, which does not correlate as, “working for family businesses.” He will be expected to work at McDonalds or a Gas station after having been a University professor. Who by the way went to college so that he would never have to work in a field, like a slave!

He will be told in his search for work, he is never to have more than $60.00 on his person until he completes parole. Which some men have been in this facility for the past 10 years if not longer, trying to figure out how to make a living when you are denied everything marketable.

He will be told never to touch a computer again to seek work because he can not be trusted, mind you in an advanced world,  Our lively hoods have been placed upon this Tech given to us by Bill Gates and the like, and I ask you as a concerned citizen; Where is this logic in this mass screening of US citizens?

Where is all of this heading?

I keep being told that no one knows what is going on.

No one knows how they treat people who have been locked up and seek Redemption, yet as I read the paper, these lawyers keep folding to the mass genocide of America!

So I am going to take the time to inform you.

Piece by piece you will come to understand how much money is being gained by corporations like this and how not a single American will benefit from it.

Now, I a law abiding citizen will tell you, Not to commit crimes and you won’t have to worry about giving money this kind of corporation. Only I have found that Cyber security is too free in hearsay charges for me to trust that anyone is committing the said crimes they are accused of.  If someone can tell me how a man or woman communicating with a student of legal age; Clearly you have to be of legal age to attend a University, legal age being that above 18, is liable for a sexual assault case based upon communication?

Tell me the man actually touched the girls, not that he sent them a texted communication or took pictures of them because if I work for a magazine and decide to take a picture of beautiful women to show for a Cosmopolitan ad about what I perceive to be beautiful and I am considered a, “Nasty person,” for taking pictures I am going to scream that I do not live in Russia, so get off my back!

The plea deal includes an agreement that Nassar will register as a sex offender and an agreement that the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Michigan will not prosecute him for alleged sexual exploitation or attempted sexual exploitation of children, including an incident in 2015 in his swimming pool.

(You want to know why?)

Cause they never had a case!

If you can not get me for the whole crime then don’t touch my door step at all!

 

Coffee and Cigarettes are all I have to give!

I am working on my newest publication!

So excited am I, that I decided to advertise early. One book a year, that has become my desire.  There is such a demand for technical enterprises. There is such a push for entertainment and education through the avenues provided from the internet, that I would feel remiss if I did not take every year as an opportunity to lay a stake in it.

The art is still going strong and I have many avenues in which to promote the art. That’s right, my art is not just floating in free space right here, you can find it @   http://adventvoice.newgrounds.com/

Along with some of thoughts on business news and how it can be used for marketing art, poetry, music, playwrights, graphic artists, dancers; http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1423829

I have written a lot about the short comings of the American legal system and I have tried to develop an understanding from the masses beyond the complacent responses, I was born into.

I pray I do enough in this newest publication to address the social damage that has been done in this country since before I was born and where it will all lead to, for the unprepared.

I have come to this point in my life where I just want more for my general public and have found it difficult to express this need for awareness in just a fun protesting catch phrase.

Honestly I am not a protestor.

The word protestor has such negative connotations that most refuse to  be seen as one, but if you are a law abiding citizen and you are robbed for everything that you worked hard for, and you complain to the law that you want everything back and with interest.

:Are you a protestor or a business man?

If I tell my children, do not invest in certain market scams for this said reason and to spend money here for this said reason; am I a boycotting advocate or a teacher?

If I tell you I am in the business of promoting the arts and ask you to invest in say: a piece I call Hold the Line!

Hold the line!

which I hope illustrates what it is like to be on the wrong side of the gun; in our modern America, be it you get the news from Fox or the BBC or NPR; or have lived the life I did, as you will later find in my newest publication.

Then you would call me an  artist right?  That is good, I can only hope to please my audience in this new technical stage of life, by bringing them the world through my white canvases.

This has been your Advent Voice.

Keep smiling folks!

 

 

The stresses upon Education!

One of the hallmark reasons for me deciding to embark on this enterprise without the aid of anyone was the unmovable fact: that my unemployment stemmed from lack of a degree or licenses in a field of study.

Of course I never felt that should be the reason one is not employed or pursuing an occupation in life that one enjoys. I can remember the countless times I would post resumes or apply for an occupation only to find these words: Experience Needed:

• Administrative experience preferred

Educational Background Required:

• College graduate preferred to be the very tool that wheedled the opportunity from my hands. We won’t go into how online applications bolster the process even further, ending all face to face interviews and allowing only what was in black and white to speak for me.

Lack of degree in a field of study.

Now-a-days to work for any publishing company; common trade; anything aside from day-labor, you need a degree. I should know, I became a jack-of-all-trades because I don’t have a degree.

I do have:

Required Skills / Knowledge:

• General knowledge of Microsoft Office Word, Excel, Access, Power Point and Gmail
• Computer savvy
• Organization, promptness, and efficiency needed
• Great communication skills

I can certainly:

Positive, “can do” attitude.
• Excellent interpersonal skills.
• Experience with diversity programs a strong plus
• Must be able to work collaboratively in a matrixed environment.
• Must have sound judgment and good decision-making skills.

I even went to school for three years to be a lawyer. None of this matters without that piece of paper that guarantees, What? 

That is why speakers like Robert Kiyosaki used to make me shudder.

Image result for rich dad poor dad

That is why I tell people all the time Degree’s Matter,

You want people to listen to you right? You tell them I am a MADE MAN and they tell you to kick rocks. So we learn not use certain turns of phrase. None of this changes the fact that at some point you will have to account to someone and they will ask for your credentials.  

Everyone tells me to go back to school. I tell them no, it is a waste of time considering my history I just would not be satisfied with any said occupation. Do I need to go to school in order to have someone sponsor my work?

Do I need to go to school in order to have someone look at my publications and say, “That is interesting, I would like to buy that and read more?”

Do I need to go to school in order to learn how to sell art?

No we need school, when we decide we want to work for a corporation under undue stress and complete lack of spiritual character. We need school to destroy our motivations in life and to insist that if we don’t have a degree, then we are not to be heard or voice an opinion.

We need university institutions to clean our pockets during rescissions and have most of the dreaming American’s settling for AmeriCorps positions after dreaming of owning there own business in child care and mental-health evaluation; because our children tend to show signs of resentment because the things they learned in high school will only allow them to go as far as working in the CVS drugstore until there 40th anniversary of there  (sheltering)and tightly held  innocence.

The extra schooling to sit in an office cubical and recite the sales pitch of a company that does not respect the individual or his or her ideas was hard for me to encourage. I say if you want to show respect, you will listen with or without the piece of paper that suggests I wasted six plus years of my life to impress you.

For POP and my Bomb Shell!

Image result for manchester arena

As I reflect on the, Manchester Arena Attack, one can not help but to pray for those lost and for those injured.  We are thankful for our leaders who pay attention to the out cries of those victimized by explosions and the complete change in there lives.

We are thankful for the families and onlookers that took the time to help those in need. I am thankful that so much was documented and said that was positive and we don’t have to wait years to hear about those that were made hero’s through pain.

Only when I think of the Manchester Arena Attack, I am made to think of that 1942 film For Me and My Gal starring Judy Garland. I am made to think of how no one cared for war and the problems of the world until they were neck deep in it.

At an Ariana Grande tour concert is when people began to realize the wolves are knocking on there door and these wolves are playing for keeps.

We hear on the news how there were innocent women and children. As if this has changed since 1996. It has been the same argument and the same answer has been the response of the world.

“Is this WAR? Are we really dealing with people that don’t like us? Are things ever going to get better? Are they really going to start policing us?

 

Image result for manchester arena

I did not have to be there to know how REAL things can get. I don’t have write anything about it, in order to stress how important it is we begin to treat one another better. We are not supposed to wait for a crisis to learn how to say, “How can I help you?”

Formeandmygalmp.jpg I think it is rather silly that this movie is the first thing that came to mind when I heard about the attack. All I saw in my minds eye was the idea that a bunch of children looking to have a good time found themselves in a rock and a hard place, for no other reason than, “They were listening to a woman sing about dreams!”

Image result for manchester arena

I am not going to say what I really think, I am just going to observe, like so many before me watch and wait. I am going to see what the others say or don’t say and I am going to pray!

I am going to pray that America Wakes up! Like they did in 1942, I won’t march like they did in the Judy Garland movie, I won’t join the YMCA and wave flags urging people to do anything; I think enough has been said, on both sides. No, now like any good chess player, you wait.

Wait for people to realize that life is not a movie, that when we have problems and you have to make a choice between ideals and reality, when you are made to choose between your dreams and the dreams we sing about and how we sing them, how we dress, who we claim to be, when you have to choose between the West and the East and you are not referring between the pick-up games of 1996 and 2005, when we have to choose between winning and loosing, who are you going to stand with?

That is the sad thing isn’t. When for so long we were told we could have it both ways, when we were told there are no right or wrongs, that Secular life is fine, that the liberals have the ticket, that money solves everything. I don’t know anything anymore and I don’t pretend to. I bridle my tongue lest  the words of Jehu becomes doctrine.  In my hearts of hearts I know no one is ready for that to be the answer. No matter how strong people make themselves out to be unless they are willing to pull the bow, keep there vengeance from me. no instead I find comfort in the story of Jephtah the Gil-e-ad-ite. Judges 11. I would much rather see the world through his eyes, and live.

I would much rather look and live.

Let us all Look and Live   

 

Keeping one’s mind on higher things!

Peace

 

I grew up in a time when there was an untold number of things that would lead one into a world of damnation and a spiritless life. A time when the Secular Community, paved the way for the depraved and unrighteous to lay claims upon a Functional dysfunction. i.e. THE functional alcoholic can maintain high ranking stature in the military as long as he keeps a desk job.    Giving way to the Logistic Officer.

Growing up in a time when everything is socially acceptable and the slackers rule the land made my pursuits of academic excellence seem childish, irrelevant, and the idea of half-hearted work will fly because everyone else is doing it.

So many seek life through all the wrong mediums and are horribly disturbed, partying like it is ’99 proves to be nothing more than a song, and not at all how we should look at our purpose in this world. We excuse ourselves by saying, “Well I am a responsible adult and can manage my own conscience.” We don’t even manage the regulation of our heart beats or the inhaling of the much needed breathe without the guidance of our father who art in heaven, but we can manage reasonably the dysfunction that so easily besets us.

John 5:39 in the words of Jesus states, “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.” 

We do this in hopes of assuaging the guilt that comes upon our functional dysfunction. It becomes a repetitive cycle because we know not the father. We think we can handle it ourselves. Jesus continues to say in the next verse, “And ye will not come to me that ye might have life.”

     

Peace.

This is what our dependency upon secular ideals amounts to. The search for peace. The alcoholic drinks in search of the oblivion that sleeps provides. The person that goes to every night club and spends there money on a side of town they do not even live, seeks the peace that is afforded from not being around the voices of rebuke for the actions they pursue in the night that has led them to a life of sin. Those that give themselves to wanton behavior seek the peace and security afforded through the promise of marriage,  a marriage that in this country has seen more court rooms or the threat of a court room, than any other country.

John: 14:27 proclaims, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

Keeping our minds staid on the promise of the Lord, affords us (as) believers to not fall prey to the justifications of the secular community.  That same community will say it is perfectly fine to live an amoral life as long as you are not hurting anyone.

I pray in our search for peace we remain steadfast upon heavenly things. Learn to eliminate the, “Self” our flesh and allow his love to consume us.

I hope we can learn to cherish our families and when we find that someone we love is going down a destructive path, that we remember that they are simply searching for peace.

Jesus Christ praised the church in Ephesus for their works, labor, patience and perseverance (Revelation 2:1-3 Revelation 2:1-31 To the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things said he that holds the seven stars in his right hand, who walks in the middle of the seven golden candlesticks; 2 I know your works, and your labor, and your patience, and how you can not bear them which are evil: and you have tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and have found them liars: 3 And have borne, and have patience, and for my name’s sake have labored, and have not fainted.
American King James Version×
). But He warned, “Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love” (Revelation 2:4 Revelation 2:4Nevertheless I have somewhat against you, because you have left your first love.
American King James Version×
).

 

After all is said an done and I have lived the life I have lived, I pray I never forget to keep my mind on the things of God whom is my first love.

 

Time is of no essence.

I ALWAYS WANTED TO FREE THE BIRDS FROM THEIR CAGES.

A smile of secret bliss etched across my face when I was finished with this piece.

An expression of the struggle to get beyond the iron or bronze bars that keeps us on the same repetitive cycle.

Be it an ideal, an old wise tale, or the words of others and the negative outlooks we allow to determine our day to day.

Break Free From Your Cage
Break Free From Your Cage

 

I just never knew where to start. There are so many excuses that bind the mind.

People would ask me, “Why have you seen so many cages?”

All I could tell them was I was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

I should have told them, I was in the right place at the right time, for when we walk in the spirit never are we in a cage, but on the mission field to help others see the light.

There is a lot of darkness in the places that I have been and not all of them are apparent because not all of them where physical prisons.

For example I have not spent my entire life behind prisons walls. Like a lot of men and women I know. It was only six years and not all at once. Three years in one state, and three years in another state. So when I was free, there was a lot of space for me to work and live productively in society, yet I found that there is very little difference in the mindset of the prisoner sitting in a DOJ facility and that of one of the five, “murder capitals,” of the United States. Can you imagine, they call these cities that were the god-fathers of the industrial revolution, “Murder Capitals,” now, There streets are filled with innocent blood of men and women that simply desire what every American desires. PEACE.

Books have been written and millions have been sold to glorify a mindset and language that proves to only degrade and liberal colleges endorse them.

     <<<<<<<Denzel’s only Oscar>>>>

 

 <<<<<He did say one good thing in that movie, “THINK”>>>>>

I went to a church the other day, for a funeral of friends that I do not know and I saw there dedications to the black agenda and the constant need for mission out reach in our, “Inner Cities.” I just could not help but wonder what the pastor got out of our black cinema that is positive. So tired I have become of black pastors telling me that it was the, “MAN,” that put you there. I always get this feeling of dejection and accountability and a need to explain to them that what I saw was more than just a black problem. I saw white boys, black boys, Spanish boys, Asian boys not men but boys in those boxes. Boys barley old enough to grow hair on there chests. Useless in there minds and thus useless in there spirits. Oh but they worked the fields and when they get out there is a nice government check waiting for them cause they are too clinical or institutionalized  to think for themselves.

Then the church says in order to stop this degradation of the human mind we need to control what our children watch and who they are around. I suppose that is a start. Then why did you give a spokesperson of your community an Oscar for the very actions you despise.

  I can go on and on and on…I love this topic cause everywhere I go I see it and I want to help but the moment I say, “Begin to live on a higher standard,

stop wearing your pants below your bum: if you knew that stuff started so that homosexual men in prison could tell the difference between a man who would fight or a man who would roll over, I bet you would stop then.

Don’t call me your “NIGGER, or NIGGA.” We all know the history of the word even those who say it and in hopes of not being hurt by it they wish to indulge in it are a bane to my existence. 

I loose half my audience and those that wish to indulge in sin they loose me.

You know I have played all sorts of music and I am not opposed to the sounds that make us feel good. I am all about feeling good and sweating the night away. I love even the art that can be produced from it.

I am just betwixt when that culture can no longer dance to a tune that is defined by love.

I knew a young woman that wanted to take me to a club, she wanted to show me how to dance with her to the sounds and well it looked like the same movements that should be had behind closed doors. “why would I share that with the world?”

I was young so I  was allowed to ask.

Now ask that same person to dance to the sounds of Miles Davis and she can’t. Ask that same person to dance to

  The Rat Pack and she is as dizzy as   “always doing that think thing with her hands”

Never focused on the music but the audience. This was the argument of the Church in 1944 and not much has changed. drunkenness, lack of a work force or any real culture is still prevalent and it would seem in our communities the desire of a perfection in our person and in our craft is as passé as it has ever been. I try not to be a critic, though I come off that way, I am just observant and want to be around people that are just as ambitious as I when it comes to the arts. Not to be afraid to try new things but to remember where it is supposed to lead to. I used to think all roads lead to Rome, not matter where I roam, I know I will feel at home. Then I got a little wiser there is only one straight and narrow way. Some day I am going back and it will sure be more than home.

That is one dollar for every door that may have been shut to your dreams of achievement.

BREAKTHROUGH!

New ways to express myself!

 

 

I BANG OUT ART ALL THE TIME!

 

 I was climbing to the top sail and I lost my leg
I was climbing to the top sail and I lost my leg

 

 

EVERY DAY WITH MY ART I SEEK NEW WAYS TO EXPRESS MYSELF!

I want an explosion of sound to be felt from the page. I want my art to reflect the things I have heard and the songs that burst in my heart. I want you to look at my work and say, “I know exactly what you are getting at and there are times when I too, am climbing to the top sail and fall short.”

Honestly in the above image you will never see anyone falling short. That is not supposed to be the story. The losing of ones leg is supposed to teach us contentment and humbleness.

YET WE CLIMB!

Fiercely do I climb to etch my name upon the pillar of this life, to see all I have achieved remembered even after I die. Motivated by a number of things as are we all, but to have the sun in my face after the panicle has been reached. To feel the salt of my skin in comparison to the salt of the sea, to realize there is no difference. When you finally make it to the top of the sail only to lose your leg, you laugh or you cry and I normally laugh until my spleen hurts.

I travel to so many places when I look at this piece. I always go to the ocean where a man can always feel free. I go to the travelers inn and remember the music I would play to all those that would listen. I remember how much fun I had telling old wise tales and sharing in the tales of all that wanted to be SOMEBODY.

My mother told me I lacked self-esteem. I laughed at her for she made me want to scream.

How can you say that about a man that dreams as I do and lives as I lived. Whom sought to climb to the top sail and lost his leg and still laughs about it. Who lost is all only to hit the ground running seeking to claim it all back.

ONE MURAL AT A TIME!

No my art is of a man that can not sit still, whose mind is on light speed and can air brush his way to heaven! I get excited just talking about it and wondering where I want to see this piece.

Maybe on the side of a city bus and when I stop them and say, “where did you get that idea?” They say, “This is to the continuum of the search of peace.”

I could be all wrong, maybe you don’t see peace in this piece, you see the struggle for it. That is good too, cause peace is worth struggling for…..

IS IT NOT!
