Ignorance Is The Tragedy

Unfortunately ignorance reared its ugly head at New Bedford’s Normandin Middle School when an autistic sixth grader was sent home with a disrespectful “superlative award” for “Most Likely to Get Lost in a Crowd”.  “Get lost in a crowd” in what way?  To not stand out?  To not find his way?  Even the student was confused, telling his mother he wasn’t sure why he received the award because he was never lost in school.

The five teachers that signed their names to this “award” should be ashamed.  To even consider themselves “teachers” is a stretch.  The principal isn’t much better.  Although an apology was made, the family was told that because the teachers had left for summer vacation, there was nothing that could be done.  Which is bullshit.  The teachers, and the principal, should be reprimanded for their actions.

The ones who really get lost in a crowd are the ones too ignorant and arrogant to learn about autism.  They are the ones who cannot accept others for who they are.  They are the ones who don’t deserve to be in the presence of a person with autism.

Because a person with autism will tell you the way it is, whether you like it or not.  Unlike so many others in this world, they are extremely passionate about their interests.  They are the most honest people you’ll meet, the most creative, they appreciate the simple things in life and most of all, they don’t judge others.

Unlike the teachers and principal at Normandin Middle School.

Passing The Torch

Last evening a generational torch was passed.

It was my 14-year-old daughter’s first concert.  At the same venue I attended my first concert thirty-six years ago.

In 1983 the place was called The Centrum.  The artist was Rick Springfield.  In 2019 the place is called The DCU Center.  The artist was Pentatonix.  As in 1983 souvenirs were purchased and memories were made.  The artists may have changed but the venue has not and is showing its age of nearly forty years.

As in 1983 there is still a need for more women’s rooms and the seats still feel like concrete.  But as it did for me in 1983, and as it did for my daughter in 2019, the music rocked.  It entertained.  It brought a continuous smile to my daughter’s face.  She had the time of her life.  To me that’s all that matters.

The Case Is Far From Being Closed

Most sane Americans wonder what wonderful things Trump supporters are referring to when they applaud him and say “he’s the best President ever”, “he’s done such great things”, “he’s wonderful” and whatever other kind of bullshit they can blow up the narcissist’s ass.  Of course when you ask them what it is he’s done so great, most can’t even speak.  I have yet to actually get an answer from any SHITHOLE supporter about what he’s done so great.

So what I like to do when they feed SHITHOLE with accolades that just make his SHITHOLE ego even bigger, is put the shoe on the other foot.  Because they, along with SHITHOLE, are nothing but a bunch of hypocrites.

I wonder what they would be saying if it had been any other presidential candidate other than Trump who stood on a stage and told Russia to find his opponent’s 30,000 emails.  What if it had been Obama?  Or should we use someone from their own party such as Bush?  Or Reagan?  Would they have cheered George H. W. Bush on if he called on the Russians to do something against his opponent?  What if it had been any of those presidents who mocked people with disabilities?  Or stated how they liked to grab women by their pussies?  Would SHITHOLE supporters like those candidates just as much as they like SHITHOLE when he said it?  Would SHITHOLE supporters like any other president who caged people seeking asylum?  Would they like any other President who keeps threatening to take away their healthcare or fucked with their taxes so much that they ended up paying the IRS for the first time in their lives?  Would they have liked Obama if he called other Presidents, Senators or other members of Congress names?  Would they have liked any other president if they had called anyone names?

Would they have liked any other President if they had banned Muslims (or people of any other religion) from entering the country, only weeks after taking office?

Would they have liked any other president if they had shut down the government for over a month, causing 800,000 people to go without pay?  Would they have liked any other president if they carried on and on like a spoiled brat about wanting a fucking wall to make it more difficult for people with skin colors he doesn’t like to enter the United States?  I wonder how they would have liked Obama if Congress decided to hire a Special Counsel to investigate his criminal activity.  Oh that’s right.  Obama didn’t have any criminal activity which would cause the hire of a Special Counsel.

The point I’m trying to make is that SHITHOLE “supporters” really aren’t “supporting” anything but their own stupidity.  They are hypocrites in the hole so deep they can’t get out.  And they are stuck.  Because you, me and the lamppost know that if any of the atrocities that SHITHOLE has committed were done by any other President (especially the black one), we wouldn’t stop hearing about it.  And rightfully so.

That’s why SHITHOLE and his supporters will not stop hearing about Robert Muelller, Russian collusion, subpoenas, indictments, how much money SHITHOLE never had, how racist SHITHOLE is, how sexist SHITHOLE is, how much of a criminal SHITHOLE is, the list goes on and on.  McConnell and the rest of the crooked GOP can say “case closed” as much as they want but the case wouldn’t be closed if it were any other president, and with this “president”, the case is far from being closed.
