If The Tables Were Turned

What if the tables were turned?

What if the country of Mexico said they were sick of Americans visiting their resorts in Cancun, Acapulco and Tijuana?  What if they said they were sick of college kids driving down from San Diego for spring break?  What if they said they don’t want any Americans working in their country?  What if President Obrador declared he was building a wall to keep Americans out?  Although that wouldn’t prevent anyone from flying to Mexico or arriving by water.

What if the country of Canada said they were sick of Americans living in America and working in Canada?  What if they said they were sick of Americans immigrating to Canada?  What if they said they were sick of Americans visiting their country, spending their American dollars in such cheesy touristy places such as Niagara Falls?  What if Prime Minister Trudeau decided to build a wall to keep Americans out?  Although it wouldn’t prevent anyone from flying to Canada or arriving by water.

I wonder how Americans would feel if either of these scenarios happened.  I’d bet the majority of us would be angry at the fact that either or both of our bordering countries would want to keep us out of their countries.  By building a wall.  Even worse.  They would want Americans to pay for it.

A wall does nothing.  People can go under it.  They can go around it.  They can go over it.  It’s not that people coming to America bothers SHITHOLE.  It’s the color of the people’s skin that are coming to America is what bothers the racist motherfucker.  If people in the Mexican caravans were blonde and blue-eyed, he could give two fucks.  And shit, if they were Russian, he’d fucking adopt them.

Could you imagine what SHITHOLE would be doing right now if he had been “president” when 9/11 happened?  My God, he’d probably be planning to place a great dome over America so nobody could get in or out.  As if that would be feasible.  But that’s how delusional SHITHOLE is.  Hence, his “great” idea of a “wall”.

The thought of a wall has become a metaphor.  A figurative wall that SHITHOLE has built around himself for protection from America and all those who are investigating him.  And there are lots of investigations.  For very good reason.

I can guarantee SHITHOLE this much.  Between his wall shit and his SHIT DOWN shit, if he even makes it to 2020, (which I doubt he’ll even make it through 2019), I know of at least 800,000 people who won’t be voting for him.  Those 800,000 people know a lot of other people.  So do the math.  Having a SHIT DOWN a year before an election year was not a very wise thing to do.  Then again, SHITHOLE is not very wise.

You’ll Need Me Before I Need You

I’m sure in most of our working lives we’ve encountered that one particular co-worker who is the ultimate pain in the ass.

You know the one.  They tell constant annoying jokes.  Slurp their coffee to no end.  Complain about everything from the air temperature to how much work they have to do.

Then there is the one who doesn’t know how to do anything.  That’s my co-worker.

It amazes me how this woman has survived in this job for as long as she has.  It’s possible that she’s always relied on someone else to get her through.  I don’t know.  All I do know is that in the six years I’ve known her, I’ve had to show her everything from how to order office supplies to how to print mailing labels.  Simple, everyday tasks that any administrative assistant would know how to do.  This woman practically needs instructions on how to wipe her ass.

And when I’ve created job aids for her to follow in learning a new procedure about something, it’s pointless because she either doesn’t follow the job aid or loses it.  Then I’m stuck trying to train her all over again.  Did I mention she’s been in this position longer than I have?  Yeah, to know her you’d think just the opposite.  And she wonders why everyone comes to me for answers to problems.

One day I counted all the times she asked me questions.  She had asked me ten questions by ten o’clock.  And she doesn’t come in until nine.  That’s another issue I have with this woman.  She seems to think that the regular 7:30 to 4:00 work schedule doesn’t apply to her.  She rolls in around nine o’clock, usually after nine, and leaves at four.  Sometimes on Friday she’ll “sneak out” ten minutes early to get her hair done.  Yet the supervisor lets her get away with it and she gets paid for the entire shift.  Not very fair if you ask me.  And against company policy.  And she seems to think that because she’s been there for twenty-five years she can have any Friday off that she wants.  With only a day’s notice.  Then she bitches if I ask for a Friday off and she can’t have it.  I actually love when she has a day off because I feel like I can actually get some work done without being bombarded with questions.

All I know is that if I up and quit or died tomorrow she’d be up shit’s creek without a paddle.  And she’d deserve it.

We Learn To Live When We Learn To Give

I don’t understand why people refuse to accept there’s good and bad in everyone.

Before anything else, we are all human beings.  We all breathe air, bleed blood, sleep, eat, defecate, procreate, we are all born and we all die.  And we all have the ability to be good people and bad people.

It doesn’t matter what sex you are, what your sexual orientation is, what your religious beliefs are, what your political beliefs are, your skin color, what country you’re from, etc.  Nobody. Is. Perfect.

Given this information, how can any person, and there are many, point at two other people, perfect strangers, a man and his mother from Mexico, and call them “rapists and animals”?  Yet this happened to Esteban Guzman and his mother while they were working. How can any one person target another person because of their religion?  Yet we have with the banning of Muslims from other countries.  How can any one person reject another person because they are seeking a better life for themselves?  Yet we have with the separation of families and the imprisonment of thousands of immigrant children across the country.

Who are the good and the bad in these circumstances?  Are they really who we perceive them to be?

For all these incidences, the tables could have easily been turned.  It could’ve been a fat white woman working in her yard with her son when a Mexican man approached her and began calling her names.  Just because she was a fat white woman.  We could have the banning of all other religions except Muslim.  And Americans could be the ones fleeing a war-torn country for a better life somewhere else, only to be separated at the border, of any country, and their children are put in cages to live like dogs.

It’s difficult to understand what someone is experiencing when you haven’t gone through it yourself.  Maybe if we think before calling someone out for being different from us, we could stop being so hateful of others for something they have no control over.  We could give of ourselves and start caring for our fellow human beings instead of acting like imbeciles.

Just because there’s a puppet master in Washington it doesn’t mean you have to be his puppet.

Elite

The other night at his most recent pep rally SHITHOLE said to his brainwashed sheep:  “The elite.  Why are they elite?  I have a much better apartment than they do.  I am smarter than they are.  I am richer than they are.  I became president and they didn’t.  And I am representing the greatest, smartest, most loyal people on earth, the deplorables”.

What SHITHOLE doesn’t realize is that It takes a lot more than material possessions and a prestigious “title” that was achieved illegally to make one “elite”.

By definition the word “elite” means “the best”.  SHITHOLE is far from “the best”.  If anything, he is “the worst”—in other words “deplorable”.  Which is what he referred to his followers as.  And that’s exactly what he is as well.

To be “elite” one must not only be “the best” but they must be “the best” at what they do.  Michael Jordan was “elite” at basketball.  Bill Gates is “elite” at technology and business.  There can be more than one who is “elite” at something.  There are many “elite” insurance companies.  Several get A+ ratings.  There are many “elite” musicians, actors, artists, writers, athletes, etc.  It’s difficult to name one as “the best”.  So they often get lumped into the “elite” category.

SHITHOLE isn’t “the best” at anything.  Not business.  Not negotiating.  Not speaking.  Not tweeting.  Not even an illegitimate “presidency”.  He couldn’t even steal it without getting caught.  Shit, from what many have said, he’s not even “good” at sex, not much being “the best”.  He’s not even “the best” at lying because you always know when he’s lying.  A “good” liar is one who can at least try to do it right.  He can’t even do that.  It’s pathetic if you can’t even be “the best” at lying.

So, yeah, SHITHOLE can brag about having this, that and the other thing but having those things makes him far from being “elite”.  They just make him a greedy son-of-a-bitch who is the most miserable person on the planet.  And it shows.  Every. Single. Day.

What’s Wrong With Our Country Right Now

This may come as a shock to some but do you know many Americans do not know the actual title to the National Anthem?  They actually think it’s called “The National Anthem”.
Do you know most Americans do not even know the lyrics to the song?  Nor do they know who wrote it.  Or why it was written.  Most don’t even know there are more verses to the song than the one that they always hear.
I’m not writing this to give you a history of “The Star-Spangled Banner” but let’s look at the definition of the word “anthem” for a second:
a rousing or uplifting song identified with a particular group, body, or cause.
a solemn patriotic song officially adopted by a country as an expression of national identity.
So if an “anthem” is supposed to be a song identified with a “particular group, body or cause” and used as “an expression of national identity”, what is the problem with athletes being able to kneel while it’s playing?  They are only identifying it with a “particular cause”, or expression of protest.  Which every person in America is entitled to.  Including athletes.  Shit, I’ve seen fat ass beer guzzling men woofing down hot dogs at baseball games during the National Anthem.  Nobody bitched about them.  And they weren’t standing, either.

So, what should we do about this “problem” that so many have with athletes taking a knee, sitting in the locker room, picking their noses, talking on their cell phones, doing whatever during the playing of the National Anthem?  Well, SHITHOLE sounds like he wants to deport them.  Sorry, SHITHOLE.  But someone who can’t even put their hand over their heart during the National Anthem shouldn’t be telling others they don’t belong in this country for not standing during a song.

I do, however, have a couple of ideas:  why don’t we ban the playing of the National Anthem.  Then players can kneel all they want without all the bitching.  The bitchers won’t get to hear their favorite song, but hey, if they’re going to the stadium to hear a song. they are there for the wrong show.  It’s a game, not a concert.

Secondly, ban all guns.  Period.  Because if American athletes have to give up their rights to freedom, so should American gun owners.

At least athletes aren’t killing anyone by kneeling.
