Political Speeches

I state ultimate claims, for the purpose of entrapment; the cause of second-guessing. Should one contest my claims? Is it in anyone’s best interest to negate my premise? I do not think so. If someone were to negate my [ultimate] premises, then they’d be giving me their final option. Is negating me worth an exchange for your ultimate and most intimate political belief? Perhaps. How small is my opposition? Is it worth to harm me and face the repercussion and humility of a failed attempt, to try and stop me? What if you fail? What if I fall short? If I do, I’ll be in a better position. If you disagree with me, then you have betrayed or bestowed your own confidence. As methods I have studied, I have conceded a small margin of error in my attempts. Many of the Christians are patrons to [white] magic; I am involved in the dark arts.

maslow

Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, I was taught this in psychology on steroids.

 

Educated and Godly as I am astute, I welcome a question of your own concern. Would you like my rebuttal, or would you be fixed on a converse disposition? Would you know in your mind that you are going to disagree?

Wealth abounds the lacking of judgement, fore the judge had not shown his face to the religious. Per the agnostic, the Master claims his reign. The Devil worshippers have a God, and dont let them tell you any different. This book of mine has professed my path to the power that’s innate, for me. I could not trade anything in the world for this potential, without my soul dying, or something else inside of me. I have studied many truths.

Notice that my words are independent of any higher power, today. Acknowledge that I am fixed on a position to claim, that I want each of you to agree with. Donald Trump in his 2016 presidency attempt is 69 years old. He inherited over $200 million dollars from his dad. He is not a genius, nor a prodigy, nor an overcome of any tribulation. Donald Trump is an example of money working its depth. Could you be satisfied if you had all the money you wanted? Or would you be looking for something else? If someone offered you “Everything you want in the Universe;everything”. Would you ask for enough? I know exactly what I want.

Numbers and math become more fluent with logic. Numbers of people, traffic, and commodities, are the only possibilities. Democracy, democracy, and democracy. It is fortunate to have such freedom. I know that if people were stripped of their liberties, then would find some things to be happy about: memories, collegiacy, labor and its fruits, and all that is Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. There must be people that crave power for the right reasons, like me.

The men of peace, I have to ask, how long do you plan to be deprived, and whom is your benefactor? Revolutions, CIA, and KGB, you get what you see. What you know is probably correct.

Resilience, Pride, and Facing the Odds

A short essay.

Time goes by, drugs spend brain cells, and an occasional Annheiser & Busch drink bides my time and keep me objective. As you discover that any recreation is available and afterwards, you have to return to the life you have made or are paving for yourself, there is a solemn reality that is faced. You may observe someone in a defeat-us circumstance, or the same person that has a justified pride that you do not understand.  That was not worded perfectly. Let me rephrase. Some people are not disposed to success, yet know they can achieve among top grossers given the opportunity and considering their achievements, against the odds.

FACING THE ODDS

My state has been (in 2014) studying and trying to fix the chances of going to prison for inherently poor African-Americans (over 30% [pbs.org video production]). Without me getting too personally involved, I’ll convey this probability: I could point to a youth in my neighborhood and have a great chance that the young African-American I pointed at going to prison before he/she is 25. Certainly you have heard of these cliches, still they are very real to me. For some of these young people facing these odds, it is easier to get involved in unsavory acts before being given a safe alternative to a lifestyle. Example: “Hey, instead of me serving dope in your house, how about I give you the stuff and you sell it.” The latter is a chronic circumstance that may happen everyday. Keeping consistent with my article, some of these facers may choose to be an outlier and not subject to criminal penalty; thus identifying my prideful demographic.

*on a live and related segue*

I was watching a show, Jimmy Kimmel interviewing Shaine Woodley, (I was watching to see the hilarious, UNNECESSARY CENSORSHIP segment that didnt air; this must have been a rerun) and I noticed that there was a video production excerpt featuring his interviewee. Within that was a writer’s implemented character development. The characters in the American mainstream, fiction production (surprise, surprise) were in late teens and Caucasian young adults. As any writer would implement, they had their own problems. The scene was set in a driveway with these teens. A nice sporty car, and what I’d say was a neighborhood with a mean house price of about a quarter million dollars. I notice right away that this depiction is entertainment, and my mind operates that I should remain objective and note realism and production value from this depictions (I like to study). For a disadvantage person, the scene depicts something that is not attainable immediately; the nice cars and homes as a young adult. It would be a travesty for a trying [for success] disadvantaged onlooker to change their priorities of making a better future by thinking, “These characters are about my age. I want to get a car like that.” The latter quote suggests to the viewer a change of priorities.
Having a gut feel for success, or an innate ability to be, charisma, is not a guarantee walk-in for a job interview. Nor is it a teller to avoid the perils of inherent distress. Me, I have avoided a lot of trouble that was right in my front yard. I was not that young man writing about what was going on either. I kept my arm strong, let my name be known, and played the game by the book. You could say I’m a little late getting where I should be, yet:
  • I cannot help where I was born (nor)
  • Change the circumstances under which I was conceived.

Resilience and Pride

People love the Cinderella Stories; Stories of people beating the odds and embodying greatness. Succeeding is harder for people with no direction at home. If you did not know, the easiest thing to do when young, with not too sound advice and out of emotion, is making a bad decision. In my case, this was at about age ten to eleven. So, I cannot revel in a bad decision. I have to conclude that my decision(s) was right and lead me to the path that will breed me the lifestyle that will make me ultimately happy. This is pride. A pride that I am forced to defend. I’m defending the underprivileged and the people that make the right choices to succeed against the odds.

Superficial reproach lies with the facer. Becoming a victim is for the foul, so keep your plate full or stay in shape.

And don’t forget, you may see people that are super successful. Take into account that they most likely had something working in their favor (parents, a friend, or geographic location), so don’t get down on yourself for what you hand no hand in making.

This is the Iceman signing out.

Living in Real Life

Tonight, I hosted an event at the Towne Mall called, Cultural Awareness and Diversity, with Music. It was a public education event. Let me make this clear. I like to write. Not type inparticular, write. You know, writing. Pencils and pens on paper. Why do I mention this? I’ll get to that in a moment. My show was a success. Applauds and cheers abound myself and my performers. This was the hand I had in setting up the show:

  • I wrote the script and researched the data with hard facts; all sources cited.
  • I created a prop table tri-panel display for patrons.
  • I cleared the red-tape with the paperwork required for my performers and the mall venue. (Performer Liaison)
  • I set up all the equipment myself.
  • Layed out soundtrack background music for intros
  • Head of audio
  • head of video
  • personally performed four culture edifying songs
  • Host/announcer/Mc/narrator
  • stagehand

Of course it was my show, so all of this was what I wanted to do. I did the show because I felt the need to keep myself busy inbetween semesters and felt the need to give myself a more comprehensive responsibility. So what’s my gripe? My video feed did not come through fluent. My feed was disrupted a couple of times throughout the show. I used my back-up camera to record video from a tri-pod, and my entire event was not filmed. I feel slighted. I cant say, “hey check out my last show. It was great. I posted it online”. There was no possible way for me to supervise the filming while narrating, assisting, and performing. Still, I will supplement the lack of a fluent feed with tangible reports on the event from multiple aspects, for documentation.
This is repulsive. The very idea is less than me. I host a successful event and contribute to 100% of the coordination for booking and the overall success at the very respectable venue. Imagine that I feel I have to get on the internet, social media, and tell people about the success of my event. Think that I have to do this in order to seek some validation for what I know was a success and what I know actually occurred. The fact I do not have video footage (I haven’t yet looked to see what I actually got on film) to mean that I have to scrounge for proofs that I was even there. Me. Using my internet time to make an impression on people that arent a benefactor. I do wish that I had the video so that a potential benefactor could look at my previous works and feel comfortable backing me. Still, any investor worth their tongue in salt would read my reports I’ll put together documenting the event, along with some stills.

So the event was fine and beyond the cheers and aweful hastenings of attention, I was most pleased when a woman told me good job tonight and “I actually learned something”. She actually learned something. This proved the success for me. This was a public education event. Certainly, my acts and myself were entertaining to watch. The woman gaining some knowledge of our area’s diversity in culture by being at my event proves that my research and event hosting delivery was affective.

This thing called social media. I want to get online and enjoy myself. Or get on the internet and research, compile data, and fashion it into something entertaining or in otherways beneficial. The thought that I would need to not only keep my real-life goals an order of the day, but I would need to update social networks as a daily activity in order to make sure I don’t slip through the crevice of interpretive stature, is an insult to my actual person. I never had to try to be anything I am not. And for me to be all that I am and have to scrounge the afterbirth of my creative conceptions (video and photos that I have to take myself, for that matter) in order to have a say in a trendy conversation, or prove to people entertaining themselves online that I actually see my real face in the mirror, is less than me.

I appreciate the talents that were involved in my, Cultural Awareness and Diversity, with Music, event. I am also glad that the purpose of the event was instilled. People learned something. As another potential success looks up to me from this notebook with my signature in it, I conclude my message. I am glad to say somebody learned something at my event, most of all.

I’m a Product of My Environment

Think of a couple of products of your environments, people. What makes people wind up products of their environments? Is it:

  • the situation people were born in?
  • the influences around a person?
  • the tribulations they have experienced?

I can say most products of environments seem to be fore the foul. Perhaps this is because of my cultural perspective. A fatherless minority youth born in the late eighties, I was familiar to Tupac and Biggie; I enjoyed rap music. Right away, neither are role models, nor any influence of which to gauge one’s own measures. I have heard some say, “Biggie was a product of his environment”. Consider that Biggie’s mom was a teacher in a school system. I came to know an inherent poverty, much deeper.

The easiest thing to do as a young man is to make a bad decision. People are not prone to failure, yet are likely to be influenced by things close to them that look better than their current situation. So what looked better to me? I was a highly astute athlete in highschool. I knew I could have gone pro. Instead of me taking those extra reps after practice, I knew that I had to earn money to eat, without the time for a nine to five. Then, as a highschooler, I was a product of my environment.

I was born into a curve, meant for only the most insightful and integretous to prosper. Instead of going right, agreeing with the hypocrisy and judicial debacles concerning my civil rights working mom I hadn’t lived with, I chose to answer life’s calls and reunite with the owner of my brilliances’ excellency. I hence became a product of my environment.

I had to comb through prejudice, instilled discernment from family, ironic denials, and life-changing losses in order to succumb to a gratifying path. So today [in short], I am a young man with an unmeasurable integrity, a leader to be admired, a passive lover, and the best man that it is possible for me to be. After much adversity and inherent traits of discovered glory, I am a product of my environment.

The Bi-Partisan Prison

Propose a recognizable, national solution. Then have your committee sign an affidavit before a notary during a preliminary hearing. Then vote, and have the committee agreed to the best idea on the table. There you have the end of a bi-partisanship. If you can’t, then welcome to democracy. Until voiced officials have their opinions bound, then the turmoil of the dominating two-party system shall reign among the free voiced.

Wisdom is the echelon of progression- Master Isom. Look back at the 2012 Libyan conflict, then seek the rudiments. From July 2012-July 2013, there have been over 90,000 government administered murders in Syria. There has been no American, NATO, or United Nations intervention toward the Syrian conflict. America spent $150 million in a single day on missle attacks for the avocation of un-merited Libyan rebels against the Libyan dictator and in his lifetime the richest man in the world. Muammar Khadaffi murdered two people for committing capitol crimes in his dictated country, then their families and friends took to social media for reprise.The American and Libyan rebel supporters were hoaxed by the masquerade of social media to hasten to the unjust cause of the avocation of the Libyan rebel. Two ideals dominate American politics: conservative and liberal. The conservative or Republican ideal, (by my definition) is a people today that choose the personal preservation of wealth. The liberals, mostly Democrats, want to ensure the welfare of the general population. The possibility of conjunction to both ideals shall nigh the debate table. The wrong leader under a false pretense, momentous with the virtue of my observations, could reap vulnerability on the nation of America.

Today Barrack Obama, without much speculation, is a self-made American minority success. The democrat, former bar-test success, and current United States President does not baffle with accolades. Hes proven that a person can win in America. Presidential administration involves budgeting, gaining trust, and confidence. President Obama has spawned imperative progresses for the American economy such as killing the alleged number one terrorist and passing a national healthcare bill (something that may be proved a must for optimal government administration). Beyond his successes are the compromises that had to succumb to bi-partisanship. The way the government is set up, the president must seek the approval of an opposing party. That ideal in itself proves a stagnant compromise.

Who operates America, the citizens or the government? What do protestors and anti-government demonstrators want? Media coverage. An aware mind can identify the ultimate goal of a protest – media coverage. If you get online your home page (if not Google) shall reveal the latest news in our country. Most currently, you may see a woman flattered by a note on a receipt. Or an employee under scrutiny for the same. So, if it is that easy to become a prominent figure by buffoonery, then scrutinizing the government is a matter that could be all the more glorified. Unifying a government base could target anti-government protestors, and feed into the fuel that optimizes the American economy. If a change shall be recommended, then the citizens should be ensured that their proposals are not going to be discriminated against by a bi-partisan government, solely on their principle. A unified government can fuel the peoples’ avocation and ensure the integrity of the government structure. If you see someone talking of my ideals, seek their integrity before you conform, for I am the originator and mind ahead of its’ time that tells you the future of North America.

The bi-partisan prison is a state of being where you know that great ideas can be contested. Innovation cannot be sparked in the darkness of threatened reprisal; that is why America has thrived as a country of equality. For the unspoken and underprivileged that want change, the security of an administration that is free to thrive shall be the victor soon; not the government that remains divided. The bi-partisan prison is a state of mind and economics that has shown no permanent resolution. My non-fiction basis and novel shall reveal, in depth, the fallacies of today’s bi-partisan government and the direction and future of North America. I am a Republican that is open to change. A Republican that knows directly how it feels to have lost hope in the judicial system. Having a government that has a sole purpose to progression as a whole provides a relief upon unspoken ails. Divert from the comfort of security behind the inherent and navigate the future of North America as a unit. Folly is spoken in the drunkard routine – Master Isom. Some people are comfortable doing what they have been told, even when a better option is before them. My economic resolutions are revolutionary, and are mine alone. A man that is not me, shall devastate the economy. Rise unto the Master.

Hours in A Day

Time is Inevitably Congruent

Crops pile in organized containers, while an athlete blitzes to a cone. The crop-toting truck soon departs from a port, while the driver buckles into an hour-long transit excursion. The athlete pivots and pushes toward another cone not too far away, watching the score-clock count down for his hour-long individual training session. In terms of congruency, both examples show different tasks being pursued within the same amount of time. The crops and truck analogy examples the stocking and shipping of necessary crops to a potential market place. The mentions of an athlete dashing from cone to cone shows that the athlete was training his agilities, so he be shown more dominant on his playing field or court. When goals, such as physical domination or meeting a predetermined quota exists, then courses of action are enacted in order to proceed most efficiently. As the Earth turns and generations inevitably age, there remain the same hours in a day.

      Of Malice and Men

My small city has a lot of historic monuments downtown. I recently discovered a proclivity towards history as a reasoning for today's economic functions.

My small city has a lot of historic monuments downtown. I recently discovered a faint fondness for history as a reasoning for today’s economic functions.

On a trek down one of the oldest streets in my city, I was nearing the mile mark on my two mile running course. I stopped near an old creek I used to fish at as a child, near the city’s flashy Courthouse. The robust creek shimmered with the freshness of post-rain splendor. Atop of the hillside bank, I saw one of the many historic markings that flourish throughout my city’s downtown area. I remain standing composed and not yet winded from running my course. The inscription on the placard before me, revered Samuel Haycraft (I used to live on Haycraft St. so I was more inquisitive than the usual). Haycraft was a Virginian migrant to the Kentucky region. In 1779’s winter, he and his array of former Pennsylvanians and Virginians migrated to and build post in the Ky city. The story was consistent with the tales of any renown 18th Century frontier pioneer, and perhaps the inaudible narrations of the writing had a modern-day twist. The author of the informative monument inscription made lite of, hastily referring to the native people who were intruded on by these migrants, as “menace”. I thought to myself the people that came into someones land from another state referred to the Native Americans in the area as menaces; that’s not right. Then I took a look over my left should at our city’s courthouse. A lot of things that aren’t right or just, have happened in there.

A Driving Motive

Most of the time, I’m busying myself with writing literature: books, poetry, music, etc. I’m certain that I’ll get into reading more again in the future, after sustaining a satisfying profession. Seemingly, I have rarely found that I don’t have the time to do things. A close friend of mine casually refers to time efficiency as,  staying vigilant. The first book I wrote, I did not write it to try and get rich. I wrote it because I was overwhelmed with the logic of a concept I had conceived. As most notable authors do not publish their first book, I have other plans for the book of non-fiction and political fantasy. The significance of my mentioning a book I wrote that I may not attempt to get published is because it shows that some events or creations in life are a stepping stone or prelude for greater ideas and things to come.

I revived a wounded turtle. He's now healthy and in his own environment.

This is the shy turtle I found. I later discovered that he was wounded.

I was coming down the home stretch  on my last tenth of a mile out of two miles, and I saw a turtle. I picked him up, wondering why he was on the side of the road such a long ways from the creek and even further from the reservoir. I immediately bought an aquarium and water treatments for the turtle. The weather was hot and he would have certainly starved to death or got shriveled in the beaming sun. I found later that the turtle had no right fingers and only a nub there; it also only had a fraction of one of its hind legs’ toes. He was hesitant to eat and adapt to his new captivity. Yet when provided with food and a healthy and safe environment the turtle had a choice: starve yourself or step down from stubborn; he chose to live.

Be Ready When Opportunity Presents Itself

Eventually the athlete dries his face with a towel and exits his practice arena,and the crop transporter has his truck unloaded in another city. The truck driver came to an entirely new environment to complete his task, while the athlete never left a 100 yd. grid-iron.

Jogging was a time and effort investment toward a goal that I am preparing for.

Jogging was a time and effort investment toward a goal of which I am preparing.

Both tasks were completed for the benefit of the individual operator, and both took the same amount of time. The inevitable is that our generations will age, and the things we individually do with our time will dictate our future destinations. So regardless of your inherent social or financial status or class, we all count the same Hours in A Day.

Products of Their Environment: Observing Insight

Insight is what makes your knowledge relatable. Be it a past day of carnage, or a sustaining day in the hopeful future that brought you to a realization, making your mark in the world is a heed that must me obliged. Altruism or hoarding of large scale successes may fulfill your sense of purpose. The American federal government has strived to guarantee equal opportunities for each citizen, regardless of race or religions, since President Roosevelt’s structuring of his Great Society. Segregation remains constant to separation of social classess. In a broad and hypothesized conclusion, success begets success and poverty begets poverty.

There are many hours in a day. Many habits are formed and dictated by the environment at home

There are many hours in a day. Many habits are formed and dictated by the environment at home.

In sports most people love the classic, Cinderella teams and Cinderella stories; often derived from athletic prodigies brought up from impoverished backgrounds. Certainly most people know tremendous athletes who did not reach their potential. Some things were beyond their control, and many times, they had not direction. In 2013 a young HS graduate in Michigan was offered a $150,000 dollar four-year scholarship to play football at Michigan State. The young man turned down the offer to pursue a career as a rapper (becoming successful as a rapper is an obstacle of its own). His lack of originality and rap skills are orders to keep him from his dreams of being a rap star. Many people slandered the young man online “He’s so stupid” “That’s the dumbest decision I’ve ever heard” “He’s going to regret that”. Certainly, the young man may come to regret not taking the scholarship offer. My immediate disappointment to the article didn’t account to his decision-making (of course it was a poor decision). I recognized, right away, that he obviously had no parent or guardian that told him how important this decision was; how it would impact his future. The easiest thing to do at a young age, and especially without an adult with insighted input, is to make a bad decision. Some adults have a knack for relating to a younger audience, yet there is only so much they can do to keep the young adult from becoming a product of their environment.

Breaks like these give time for conversations throughout the game.

It was a great setting for the First Annual National Baseball Tournament held in my city.

I had the pleasure of meeting a varsity football coach from a Louisville HS, and helping his efforts in part with a large youth baseball tournament hosted in my area. Considering the pace of baseball, he and I had some significant time to conversate. The Bachelor of Marketing was glad to be a minor of psychology (which is great studies for a marketing major). He told me about his first HS coaching job in Oklahoma. The man who hired him was the head coach. The players hastened to the hiree and he enjoyed being a positive influence to these high school footballer. One day, the head coach spoke in monologue to him telling him, “I’m telling you this because I don’t want you to get [hurt or dissapointed]”. The coach continued to tell the aspiring mentor of athletes, “You can’t save these kids. Some of them will succeed and some will not. Some will indefintely end up in prison” (the quotes are estimated through translation). The veteran coach had surely seen many players come and go through his program and was probably as eager to be a great influence to the pupils as the newer, now seasoned HS coach I got to meet.

Athletes born into poverty need someone to urge them toward making their future bright. Otherwise the talent may find themselves looking at the same neighborhood after their future athletic career failed to begin.

I had to think, is it true that a coach a player looks up to cannot save a player from a stagnant end? Yes. I find that true from two perspectives. One, as the Oklahoma coach told his hiree, the coach spends two hours a day (five days a week) with the kids. After the sports routine is conducted, the kids each return to their home life; in the aforementioned case, the students were predominately impoverished Negros that lived in drug ridden communities and most likely often faced with parental neglect. Therefore, more time is being spent in a negative situation at home that will weigh more heavily on their coping skills. Secondly, kids that are underprivileged financially have obligations that can keep them from success. Personally being a former HS standout and star athlete, I can say that attitude and time dedicated to the practice of sport are key to becoming a professional athlete. Picture a star athlete in HS destined for the pros, that after a big ball game or practice has to sell drugs to eat food at home. His recreation is consumed with survival instead of practicing what he excelled at athletically. Faintly, no matter how hard a person tries to help another, the sought party will do what they want and may become a product of their environment. As the now HS coach in Louisville was given insight from a coach in Oklahoma, he was able to convey to me as I observed his insight.

It’s widely said that baseball reveals character. I’m glad someone appreciated mine.

As my week succeeded, I met a former HS coach  of mines’ dad, who now has a grand son. He told me that when his grandson was younger, I was his hero. It’s nice to have people tell me that they admired my athletic ability from when I played. Unfortunately, my set up was one that was predicated with acquiring survival’s needs (food, etc) at home, so I was not able to dedicate fully to my potential baseball career.

Donald Trump is a house-hold name in America. He’s a dynamite investor and a real estate mogul. He is a product of his environment; a case where wealth beget wealth. What if Donald Trump was preoccupied with impoverished company; take Bill Gates in the same matter. Perhaps both of them would have had more altruistic beginnings and not pursued a hoard of wealth.

Treading off of the beaten path, though my accomplishments to date are modest, I am no unsung hero. My songs are sang everyday. Observed by the insightful and performed by the underprivileged. It is possible to beat the odds of poor circumstances, yet insight comes only with experience. So observing the insights of another can confirm your own life expectations and knowledge. I learn in many different ways, and learning is among my favorite things to do. Honestly, I’d be glad to eventually succeed and overcome the adversities I have faced. In doing so, I could prove that I became a product of my environment by removing the desecrations of poverty and observing the judicial neglects that I never want to see again.
