Breaking my silence, but not enough

Hello, there !  Renxkyoko Iglesias here.

 

I haven’t done any blog reading ….. well, maybe 10 blogs a day this week, and these last 2 days, none at all……, and Cassie, MBBBF,  can attest to this. I haven’t been feeling well these last few days that even my boss had to let me go home  ( bad timing,  there was no one to take my shift so my boss had to do my work ) .  My cough sounded terrible , , my eyes were watery, my joints hurt, and though I had a slight fever, my hands and feet were icy cold. Weird.   Last Wednesday, I was called for a jury duty. I went despite being sick, and hoped the judge wouldn’t select me. I  usually don’t get selected because of my father’s job.  He works with law enforcement, and no, he’s not a cop nor a warden, ^_^”.  We get asked about this stuff,  so, I was sure  the defendant’s attorneys would eliminate me, assuming wrongly  there was  going to be some bias against his client.  Sure enough, I was sent home, thank goodness.  This is not always the case though , because my sister was selected  to be a juror despite the personal info.  Why was she selected ?  Well,  99 % of the people who were asked by the judge  gave the wrong answer. My sister was the only one who got it right. Okay, so the judge asked each potential juror  whether the defendant present in this court  was guilty or not.  Everyone answered they didn’t know……. my sister was the only who said the defendant was innocent.  And folks, that’s how it should be… innocent until proven guilty .

 

Another thing……. US Attorney General  Jeff Sessions just scrapped  the commission established by the Department of Justice and  the National Institute of Science and Technology  to engage independent forensic experts to improve the reliability and authenticity of forensic evidences .  Sessions scrapped this… these “meddling  scientists “, he said.  He said he would instead just get an in-house adviser.  Folks, I have a college degree in Forensics Biology, specializing in DNA Analysis,  and even if I know that Forensics analysis  is the most reliable evidence by far,  this cannot be attained with garbage evidence .  ( contaminated , etc. ) We have to be sure that the person we are sending to the gallows is  truly guilty.  Now, don’t ask me if I’m pro- death penalty  or anti.

 

I haven’t made any political statements for quite a while.  I ‘m so overwhelmed by the almost daily  screw-ups coming from the White House….. oh,  pardon me, from Mar-a Lago…. that I ‘ve decided to zone everything out.  I mean, that guy spent 25 days of his first 100 days golfing on his   resorts and visiting his other properties. Meanwhile , taxpayers spend  $ 3 M each time he stays at Mar-aLago, not to mention the $$$$$$  the government spends to maintain his New York’s Trump Tower, because Melania lives there.  Add the $$$$$ we spend every time his sons go abroad on private business. (  Hey, first family is protected everywhere they go, right ? )

 

Of course, these are just small , shallow corruption issues.  What I should be more concerned about is the abolishment of  the Environmental  Protection Agency ( EPA ) , Department of  Education, the repeal/rejection of Affordable Health Care Act ,  defunding of all agencies that take care of the needs of  the people…. ( Meals on Wheels, PBS subsidies,  Sesame Street, the arts ).Meanwhile , that man  is so ready and eager to make tax cuts for the rich.

We’re in a Freakin’ Twilight Zone

Renxkyoko Iglesias here, Hello !

I am sure  some of you have seen and watched this video that I’ve posted here. Normally, I wouldn’t post such  a video, because in the first place, I myself do not know what to make of this, but this is an interesting and abnormal  time,  so …….

Anyway,  do watch if you haven’t yet.  It’s Bill  Maher’s  outrageous  political pitch for  THE NOTORIOUS  H.R.C.  Warning:  mind the graphic and colorful language.  My folks and I cringed , but it did bring the Iglesias  household down, on the floor, laughing our ass*s  off.

 

 

Maher’s exposition sounds bad,  but I find it hilarious.  Sometimes, the way to fight  out- of- this- world accusations  is to own it.  (  Filipinos used to be called  Flips here in the US. So, Filipinos  fought  it by calling themselves Flips….. the racist name calling  stopped.  )  Sweet Grandma Hillary……  Trump, the lying, con man  Tweeter warrior  has nothing on you.

By the way, Tim Kaine, her VP, did  missionary  work with the Jesuits and stayed in Latin America for 2 years, and that’s where he learned to speak fluent Spanish…… he was also a civil rights lawyer for 17 years.  So, yeah, Hillary pals around with Lucifer.

This is all for now.  Thank you for reading.

Hello, hello ! !   Renxkyoko Iglesias  reporting for blogging duty . * salutes *

Before anything else, please check out my anime/manga blogsite HERE.

And check out too Brobrubel’s  post HERE

It’s been 37 days since my last post , ” Graduation “. You’d think I’d have plenty to talk about since then…..

To be honest , I have so much  stuff swirling on my mind  that I don’t even know where to begin.  But I have to start somehow……

First off, the  police fatal shootings  of 2 African – Americans…..  I don’t know what to say.  What else can I say ?  At this very moment, I’m more afraid of the police than a terrorist.  Again, for the umpteenth time, my Mom phoned my brother and told him that if he gets pulled over by the cops, he has to freeze, don’t talk, don’t move, even if the  cops  ask for his license.  Let them  look for it.  Sorry but I’m furious.  These incidents wouldn’t happen to a white person.  These cops and wanna – be  cops should have their heads examined  first for any potential   psychological malfunctions.   Based on  Washington Post’s tally,  Mr. Philando  Castile was the  136 black man killed by the police   this year, 2016. This is so shameful. We Americans have no right to talk about human rights  to other countries if this is the way  civilians  are treated  by the very people  who have sworn to protect them .

Now ,  about the Dallas incident……   4 cops have been killed  by a  lone sniper . It’s revenge killing, that’s what it is.   It’s tragic that it has come to this. .  There’s a wedge between the police and  the community, and the Dallas Police Chief  has, in fact,  said  ” he feels the police do not get support from the community. ” One does not need a PhD in Sociology to explain why this is happening.  As I said, I , myself,  am more afraid of a cop killing me  for some minor traffic  infraction  than an ISIS terrorist  killing me while I’m out shopping.

  • pondering *

My  majors are Cell/Molecular Biology and  FORENSICS Biology.  I just submitted a job application  to guess where.  My father’s  work is directly connected  to  law enforcement/ justice department, and my best friend is a cop.   It’s a whopping  trifecta…. a holy mother of irony. . How crazy is that.

This is all for now.  Thank you for reading.

 

 

 

A political rant

Hi ! Renxkyoko Iglesias  here. * waves *

There are so much I want to talk about that  I don’t know where to begin.

————————————————-

Believe it or not, I wrote the above  2 days ago.  It’s a good thing  I didn’t write what was on my mind  that time, otherwise I would have gotten myself in trouble.  You see, I  felt like  virtually   punching a certain  politician’s supporters’  faces. But then, we had expected this kind of behavior from the fringe, the far Left and the far Right.  The far Left has overran  all the Democratic Party’s fora, and had the temerity and gall to call  Hillary Clinton all sorts of names, like cunt, corporate slut , whore. It’s cringe – worthy. Majority of them have vowed to never vote for her if she becomes the nominee of the Democratic Party…. all of these on the Democratic party’s  forums.  Omg, these are nasty people. My gawd, how can we expect them to vote for her after all the things they have written about her ?

Do you know what they did  to Dolores Huerta , a well- known Latino activist and a Hillary supporter ?  And you guys are wondering  why poor minorities aren’t with you, despite dangling  FREE STUFF  on their heads ?   You guys knock on doors of poor people , and tell them  Sanders’  going to increase WIC, welfare checks,  food stamps, besides the big  deals like  free insurance, college,  and I don’t know what else  the fuck you guys are promising, and at whose expense ?  You see a minority  opening the door to you,  then  you start peddling  your  free stuff, hoping  they will be seduced .  Well, that’s how    some otherwise   Sanders  supporters  changed their minds.  You just looked down on them.

You actually think  you can  distribute free money  for 300 million people from businesses and rich people ?  You are like climate change deniers.  Almost all progressive economists  are saying  your policies will wreak havoc  on the US, except for one ,from whom your candidate based his economic mumbo jumbo.

Clinton won in Nevada because of the poor but hardworking  union workers’ votes .  They don’t need your freakin’ free stuff…  they need  social justice .  And you guys bash the symbol of   ” real promise” in the  hearts and minds of black folks…. Pres. Obama.  Your candidate had called him weak, another corporate lackey, and wanted him primaried in 2012.  You look down on Obama care . Whatever you guys say about it, it does work.  I have a friend who simply cannot afford insurance for her and her child….. but  she enrolled and qualified  , and is now paying just $24  a month .  She has been told it would increase  with increase in income, as it should be.

Another thing,  you made Cornel West the Black face in your party.  Google the nasty things he said about Pres. Obama.  I heard him on TV.  He was one nasty guy. And another thing, when a group  endorses Clinton,  you call them ” establishment ” .  UFW (  United farm Workers , SEIU ( government workers in California )  Planned Parenthood, LGTB, and others. Planned Parenthood and LGTB are establishments?  You guys bash anyone that doesn’t conform to your ideology.

And do you guys actually  think  your candidate  can do this on his own, once he sets  foot in the White House ?  That’s how you sell your ideology .   Oh, wait… there’s REVOLUTION !!

Politics involves good governance, and compromises. After all,  you’re not only the president of believers of socialist ideology.  You are the president of 300 million citizens with differing persuasions.  Compromises do work. Obamacare works.  Sanders has vowed he will never compromise.  A person who  doesn’t compromise ,  and doesn’t evolve  should not be President.

This is all.  I’m not going to accept  any  shitty  comments, like Hillary =  evil,  , by the way. I’ve had enough of that  crap talking to these people. Not on my blogsite, anyway.

The Democratic Party memo has sent word to Democrats not to  ” displease ” Sanders’ supporters.   Nice.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is All……. o_O”

Hello !  Renxkyoko Iglesias here.

This is my second post this month. I wish I could post more but.. oh well.

My father’s in the Philippines.  He left last week. It wasn’t a sudden trip, though. He had been planning this for months, but we were nevertheless  surprised  to see him packing Thursday night, and we were like, When are you leaving? … Tomorrow.  What ! ! ”  My sister goes to San Francisco twice a month to be with her boyfriend . (  He now works in Frisco ). She is supposed to go there this coming Saturday, and take Dad to the airport, but her BF called to tell her he bought tickets to a Friday night  game, (  baseball or football, I don;t know), so Dad just decided  to leave one week earlier. San Francisco is  a 2 hour drive from our house, and he doesn’t want Mom to go on long drives anymore.

So, anyway, I wrote  about a  beach  house we’re constructing in Boracay Island, Philippines, didn’t I ?  The plan was originally a duplex, one unit  for the family, and the other one for rent to tourists. Then it was changed to a 2 floor house , 6 bedrooms, 3 toilets/baths…. then 3 weeks ago, we learned that my aunt changed it again to 2 1/2 floors, 7 bedrooms, 5 t/b with a rooftop garden. What the heck ! !  Well, it is my aunt’s and my parents’ joint venture, but this is getting out of control.  My aunt assured us  all additional expenses would be on her.  Oh–kay …… still……..

Anyway, that’s the reason why dad ‘s in the Philippines now…… to check out what the heck’s going on with  with on – going construction….. and to ask the architect about the changes, although we learned it was due to the site’s topography. It’s hilly, so the architect changed the plan based on the layout of the land.  The architect assured  us the view would be spectacular…. though our property is not beachfront… it’s  a mere  5 to 10 minute walk to the beach, so that view from the hillside will be spectacular, indeed.

So, to my readers from the Philippines,  watch out for my ” promotional plugging”, ha ha.  Our  problem now is , this is not a simple vacation house anymore that we’ll  be renting out when not in use by the owner.  We’re figuring out how to run this……… now how do we classify this ? An inn?    Also, to my non- Filipino readers who want to go on tropical vacation, we’ll advertise this on VRBO.com * Vacation Rental By Owner ” . Hopefully, we’ll be ready by February , 2014.

Oh, by the way, I bought a published book by a fellow WordPress blogger.  Uhm, Mr. Conley ? I haven’t read it, but I promise to read it soon, and hopefully, write a review.

Hey, I’m not going to be political on this post, even though my mouth is itching to say something.  One thing though…. the total non-empathy and  non- compassion of the Teabagger Republicans  for the needy   are stunning.  And to think their base constituents from Red states *  (Democrats’ are BLue states *  )are poorer than Blue states’.  ALL … I repeat, ALL,  Red states, except Texas , get more federal welfare than they give to the government. The rich Blue States, like New York, California, Massachusetts, Washington, Oregon, New Jersey, Maryland,  etc. heavily   subsidize these Red States.  Oh, the irony ! ! !  Hey,  teabaggers !. See that poor,  homeless- hippy  looking  beggar  listening in to your tirades againts those lazy poor and the sick – if – you- can ‘t afford it- just die folks  ? He  could be Jesus -come- down – to- earth. And His eyes are glazing over as He listens to people like you. The shamelessness and meanness are breathtaking.

So, I went political.  Again.  Couldn’t help it. * walks off, mumbling. *

* turns around *

My Paris tour next post….. Louvre, specifically.  And countdown to our Asian tour in June, 2014….. 7 1/2 months.  Good day and  Peace.
