What is an Anonymous Coin Toss Poll? Is there really just One Consciousness Universe-wide, flitting-about, microbe to man?

FYI – There is a prior version of this which had a negative slant which I have here attempted to remedy. Prior version was the negative version and reactive version; this is the positive and pro-active mindset version of the prior email. Re-active mindset email sent previously, check it out;

Hey Elijah!

POWERFUL ANONYMOUS COIN TOSS POLLING

What is an Anonymous Coin Toss Poll?

One tosses a coin (or licks one side of a flat stone) tosses it into the air and keeps the outcome, heads or tails to oneself – this is what makes it foolproof – only you know the outcome of the toss, only you can know – no electronic tinkering can get into your mind to know what the outcome is, you are it, period, yes?

In any group of people, half of all tosses will be heads and half will be tails. Imagine that one wishes to discover how many persons in a crowd like strawberry ice cream and their number one favorite ice cream, quickly but so that no one knows who the oddballs are. One asks people that like Strawberry over both Chocolate and Vanilla or any other flavor of ice cream to say “heads” regardless of their toss.

The difference between fifty-fifty and the real outcome of the tally heads and tails for the crowd will still need to be doubled to get the correct answer for the entire bunch and will be fairly accurate for numbers above fifty in a crowd depending on how rare or common the expected answer.

You can do amazing things with this simple anonymous coin toss poll method in large groups of people, let your creative imagination dwell on this a moment, it will pay off for you.

A powerful tool if ever you get in front of a church, fyi.

Elijah, an anonymous coin toss poll enables one to non-confrontationally and safely ask any large group of people, any and all ages – useful when speaking to adult and kid crowds both. One can find out how many are financially insecure  and really only have four to six months before they’d be in trouble, and how many have ACE (adverse childhood experiences) of four or higher and how that relates to whatever your point is to that crowd.

One can use this “anonymous coin-toss poll” method to make choices between who likes anything at all; music, art, sports, any question can be asked ANONYMOUSLY and it is foolproof which cannot be said for any hackable electronic system where one must put trust in an outside source.

 

GNAWING vs CUTTING

Activated, on-alert, Complex PTSD-driven minds are HIERARCHICAL –driven minds.

When kids cut themselves in hidden places, try not to see it as cutting, it is really gnawing. Humans are tool users, we wish to make something bleed, we reach for a tool, and biting the thing isn’t our first thought. Ever seen a poor helpless animal caged that has gnawed on itself out of frustration, madness, and misery? I hope you’ve only seen images, but it is all too common in both reality and images, you have likely seen pictures at least, if not the reality. Needless to say, reality is worse than a photo.  Animals gnaw. People cut. People use tools, animals do not. When a human cuts, it is really no different, no different AT ALL from GNAWING, period. One has to see this to understand and get what is going on. And one must understand gnawing and cutting are the same thing to hope to be able to help and stop it.

Seeing gnawing and cutting as identical enables one to see that paucity and scarcity driven minds are – Terrified of POOR people and of poverty – it could happen to them! Their brains and yours and mine may not be at all different, in fact, it’s almost for sure if “they” are, and you’re in the middle of all of them, then the odds are that we are all the same – so as I write this be sure you know who “they” and “us” are, because I’m not at all sure we aren’t all on the same side right now more than we know or likely wish to be.

Those convinced the world is a competition and that they may have to have a gun someday to fight over scarce resources are hard-wired to be EXTRA-Sensitive (i.e.; TeRriFiEd) of differenceS, disease, change, and othernesS.  These people, friends, neighbors, family, and ourselves too (sigh!) when we aren’t MINDFUL of it, will lean-back when new opportunity knocks, not lean-forward, and will be driven by fears that well-up from a deep chasm that is the greatest of all, the King of fears; the fear of death – itself – the end – to zero, or to “One” is mere philosophy which ends with its thinker unless there is continuation or the surety of it either one even were one’s own continuation to cease perhaps, almost quantum-physics-like, the surety of a continuation as a copy can suffice as can a Bayesian quantum probability for physical reality.

Fear of death is lying at the center of it all, the secret that sits in the middle, giggling. Its sound is all but muffled so seldom is heard as if never spoken of and yet there solidly at the center sits awaiting the end of it all, like a library burning down. Black ashes carry no great wisdoms nor any relic of a philosophy ever having existed in their carboniferous blackness where once were words reflecting the thoughts of the greatest minds. whose only trait is it’s nothingness and weird ability to overcome all other colors and worse, without addition of any black at all, by merely adding all the colors in combination one eventually finds they all die as well and turn to the nothingness of colorless black. What, after all, would blue be, if black were a color, one wonders. Wiser is it to make black a color or suffer the wrath of a whiteness blinding in its painful expectation of eternity and in stark contrast to a bland non-feeling endless existence of nothingness.

It is reasonable after all that there be a distinction made in words as in sight, yes? Which brings to mind an admittedly errant question, forgive please the temporary free-association if you would please, with my apologies for the inconvenience as you have been so nice to have read this far, even if scanning down…

I wonder;

What is the braille equivalent of white and black I wonder… black should be a grid, a waffle pattern, and white would be the reverse, raised squares, filling in the void with equally void space as was the void of the prior hole in their shared lack of difference and self-comparability to discern any form save a bland expanse as if reaching out into empty space to grope with ones hands would certainly be the sightless deaf gesture for black and feeling against a wall or floor or any flat surface such as a table or even pantomime would best convey, surely to the deaf a sense of whiteness as the opposite of black as is void to surface.

So… um… where were we – To reiterate and quote myself from prior;

Those convinced the world is a competition and that they may have to have a gun someday to fight over scarce resources are hard-wired to be extra-sensitive to differences, disease, change, and otherness – all of us by being MINDFUL will lean-forward when new opportunity knocks and can expect to be greeted with a world of abundance and cooperation and in the ideal at least, infinite life as well as long as one is wishing, right? This is much better than the opposite when one leans backward, not lean-forward, and will be driven by fears that well-up from a deep chasm that is the greatest of all, the King of fears; the fear of death – itself – the end – to zero, or to “One” is mere philosophy which ends with its thinker unless there is continuation or the surety of it either one is equally possible. The fearful yet strive to be dare-devils seeking to overcome their fear of death by denial of it as sport, perhaps?

All of which brings us back round to the root of what GNAWING (i.e.; “cutting”) really is or may perhaps be. Risk taking behaviors and sports manias may bear some psychological similarities as coping mechanisms for fear and stress in which case one can see self-cutting as equivalent to risking one’s life which it is indeed, yes? And if this is true then also to risk one’s life – to do crimes and be antisocial may for some of us be a way of saying to an un-empathetic society disrespectful of life, fine, you don’t care about things that matter but should, and then one doesn’t care about oneself either, perhaps? Anti-social behaviors may be the equivalent of societal self-cutting; slicing into the flesh of societal empathy and caring, turning them to nothing (i.e.; “evil?”).

AGEISM AND MORE

 

Mr. Manley, you’ve seen that look in people, even at your age, when going about with your mom and family when struggling  – the “look” on top of the ageism and the race-ism and all the other –ism’s this “look” is due to what social psychologists call the look one see’s in a hierarchical group of primates and is a “primate display” to one of perceived inferior social “status” in the groups hierarchy. In stressed-out wacky groups, this look is something to behold indeed. While it varies individual to individual, I like to think of all the variations as a group as the “scrunchy-faces;” like you just bit into something that had gone bad, very bad. Scrunchy-face is the face of a child morphed onto that of an adult that is terrified of poverty as of disease and death itself.

 

As very young children death is sensed I suspect more deeply than any adult would or may be physiologically able to believe in that it may wane continuously – or alter – as we age is a very real and even logical possibility, yes? As adults we fear death and yet seem to dare and want GNAWING and risk-taking from smoking to daredevil-anything to risk an unnaturally early and otherwise highly improbable death – yet inexplicably also fear it, I wonder if it is possible we may all begin our lives with what we would likely as not see as a pathological fear of death that has morphed as we age so that as adults we dare it to not exist by facing it – Terrified of Death (and likely of intimacy, and attachment) are we all it seems – (Author Rollo May; “Love and Death.”).  So what was the point – oddly enough – trying to say next time you are mad at someone, remember that Errors are Supposed to Be Opportunities to Learn and that to TEACH ADULTS one has to MODEL the behavior one wishes them to learn. They are old, it will take many, many, many times, but don’t give up, despite appearances, there have been sporadic case-reports of adult learning, (unsubstantiated). :0

 

To train the policeman to place a different value on the life of others when trained to shoot to kill is Immoral.

 

To train the attorney and lawyer that to be amoral in jurisprudence is acceptable is Immoral.

 

To train the teacher, policeman doctor, and first responder to be businesslike and to see their services, and those served; children and the disenfranchised, as chattel is Immoral.

 

To train the dog, horse, or child to war is Immoral.  

       

To apply punishment against a child for making an error is Immoral –

Error is Opportunity to Learn and to Teach, not to Punish and be Punished.

 

To punish any child for any reason in immoral and a missed opportunity to teach by example not only how to not do the punishable action again and also to teach and show by example the correct social behavior in expressing to others that Error is Opportunity to LEARN and to TEACH and not to Punish or be Punished, OK?

 

NEW YORK, NY EDUTECH THING

Mr. Manley I put your name not onto or into but… I’m not sure what exactly…  but I only had like ten minutes to slide under a deadline so if some New York University Education Accelerator outfit pops up in your daily dealings they put you on campus and teach you and give you  bunch of money to play with and live on both so figured you should have chance to turn it down at least but, as said, don’t expect much, spent only three of the  ten on few sentences on what’s what and rest on auto-question-answers so… I tried. Sorta.

 

Um … ideas had to be for $50 million plus per year education company ideas… so I tossed out three or four I think, and a concept to rate narcissistic tendencies from Facebook type views that you could probably get six figures for on the spot if you knew the right people… so… I should try to remember what I wrote… uh…

 

Start-up concepts mentioned included – MINIONS and Shelves in Museum Schools and Kids as curators and foresters and ecology managers, oh my! Following are some of the things half-ass proposed in a few sentences and even less clearly than here.

 

 

50,000 MINIONS SET UP NATIONWIDE SERVICES FOR HOMELESS FAMILIES IN 7 DAYS?

 

A.I. minion-software bots would be able to make calls and follow up and ask questions and take actions based on the answers to those questions and learn as it goes to organize and lead the setting up of coordinated specific efforts such as the provisions of immediate support and aid to any child anywhere anytime, period but not done as a huge project requiring a Congressional vote, instead one person says  “go.” Seven (7) day roll out to all 50k districts and full implementation in 14 days thereafter.  (?)

 

 

A.I. SOCIAL SYSTEM SET-UP MINIONS

 

50,000 AI minions to go out to 50,000 school districts to set up system to make schools and communities link up to look after ecology of each and also feed and house kids and moms and whatnot essentials and stock shelves in schools remodeled on museums with stuff curated by kids and helped kept track of by coop agreements with Amazon and Ebay and China’s name I forgot, and Google and Apple and everyone – including art, antique, ancient book and artifact auction houses which NY City is full of and which I’ve corresponded with a few so mentioned one, Lions Heart… I think, too.

 

 

Improved Health using Human Ape Harmonizing App to Positively Affect Stress, Affective Internal Organ Tonality and Cortisol Levels via Vagus Nerve and Thymus situated near Voicebox

 

Music Live cell-phone application enables any size group to HARMONIZE in real-time together and to hear themselves doing it. This Hum thing – Might have it “roll around the planet” as the sun goes and have people listen and watch to see the Earths pre-breath as the air moves slightly just before the light hits and all the animals begin making noise – just a wee bit before the arrival of first light the noise is heard first then a slight movement of the air if it was motionless before and then first light always in that order all the world round, a Speaker of Stones once told me and now I’m telling you. One needs utter silence to notice such things, they are always there though, whether listened to or not, like knowledge itself, always going round and round without losing pattern, yes?

 

HEALTHY INFLAMATION DECREASING INTERNAL-ORGAN ORGAN-BALANCING MUSIC – They asked for likely partners and I suggested the Pokemon-Go people as ideal as partners for the Vagus nerve and inflammation reducing harmonizing cell-phone application (described above) to teach music and ALSO and perhaps far more importantly – about our, mankind’s early history not of violence but of cooperation as we all as one sang to greet the rising of the Sun for this is far more accurate a depiction than that we spent our time fighting in tree’s like baboons; we aren’t baboons and the reason they are still in tree’s and we aren’t is because they fought while we sang and worked and played in harmony – Yep!

 

 

VAGUS NERVE LINKS ALL ORGANS TO BRAIN & MODULATES INFLAMATTION RESPONSE TO STRESSORS

 

Note for Worldwide Harmony App;

 

– for later – look into William F. Wolf Foundation promotes music education heard on 91.3FM and may be a good contact in regard getting the world wide humming greet the sun chant tai-chi teach music and singing or whatever one wants to call it day thing plus recent Vagus Nerve research on organs and inflammation as tie in.

 

The NY EdTech application will likely be tossed out right-away I’m mostly sure;  I also made a pretty clear point as I recall that…

 

 

 

100% of all child abuse and neglect is detectable and preventable – it is – for real.

Narcissism Scale Indicator Measurement Method

 

HELLO, MY FACE IS UP HERE – This is so SIMPLE yet powerful, like the anonymous coin toss – and it also may be Monetizable which the anonymous coin toss is not I don’t think. As a friend relayed to me not on Facebook but another similar site, of 850 responses, only about two percent mentioned her art although every single photo other than the lead one were of her art and just the one lead photo of her – this is a large sampling of the “world” to a large degree, so what I wonder if we had 100 people in each town of Compton, CA, Chicago, Illinois, Pembroke Pines, FL and the small isolated town of Christmas Village in Colorado – I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that the hundred people in Christmas Village, CO score is different to a statistically significant degree, perhaps. Might be a useful tool is my point to measure a number of different normally hard to define let alone measure social quantifiers such as black white thinking, narcissism, fear of new surroundings and change, and much more due to the relatedness of all.

 

SIDE-WAYS viewed FISH SMILE as determinants of hemispheric dominance, maybe; along the same lines there are many variations once one starts thinking on it. One may be able to sous out which brain hemisphere is dominant or is being bullied in a sense within individuals and also to tell if the degree of disharmony is causing large or small changes to ones perceptions and ability to adapt. What is proposed is be a means of telling which hemisphere is dominant and more prone to “holes” in one’s perception which holes are to enable the person to be more effective in their community and faster when reacting to negative stimuli and more dominant.  One way to accomplish this may be to have an undersea scene hung side-ways so that the fish ones swimming along the bottom are seen to be going from top right to bottom left downward once rotated thusly. Some persons will stand to the right, others to the left, and angle their heads accordingly when viewing it. A second picture they come across can be similar but rotated the opposite way to see if the same persons as before now step again to the right or to the left and angle their heads accordingly. Persons stepping to the left in the first instance will see the fish moving top right to bottom right but will also see the fish-faces upside down and the smile pointing downward – did they notice the fish-smiles or were these made invisible by the viewers mind to simplify the image? It is hypothesized that persons view the image from the right, and seeing the fish-face smiles in the accustomed normal perspective will spur more of these to be able to see the smile in the first place, as compared to those stepping to the other side. When these same people look at the second picture described above and it is also flipped but the other way – when they step to the left instead of right, if they do, they should see the smiles on the fish faces with the same frequency as those persons that normally step in the opposite direction presumably using a different dominant side of the brain and perhaps also displaying then a difference in the data processing strategies of the two hemispheres in these individuals in that some will be more likely to see the smiles and some less likely, perhaps. Just a thought to add to the narcissism test/evaluation idea just prior which is similar –

a Continental FUGIO We Are One 1776 Very First One Cent Currency designed by Benjamin Franklin 2

WE ALL ONE – For REAL – we may all be one, yes?

 

Yes. Really. No kidding. Err… Maybe?

 

Yup – seriously, and it CAN’T be disproven. Think on that a second – CANNOT be disproven – in fact, it is (scientifically, mathematically, logically, all three) provable that it can’t be disproven. Yup. No kidding.

 

MAYBE! If the following CONCEPT is brought to the attention of the right people, death penalty and abortion rights could be affected, among other social issues. This concept-proposition-hypothesis or whatever one wishes to call it holds out the possibility there is just one consciousness in all existence that flits mind to mind so fast none of us is aware of it and cannot sense it in others since it all seems continuous from each individuals perspective. This sounds odd and will be described a little bit more later, but the point isn’t whether it’s a correct and true perspective on the world but whether or not it could be, and provably, it is could be true indeed. More, it is provably as possible as saying that all of us are separate – this is relevant because it could weigh heavily in subsequent debates on the issuer of contraception and abortions as well as for the death penalty and vegetarianism if framed the right way by the right parties able to get the message across (whatever that message is).  I strongly believe women have the right to choose so having the architect of so much nastiness on the horribly mis-named Pro-Life side be the go-to guy is very concerning but…  perhaps such worries are better left for younger minds to ponder and err if that be the outcome – this is a hard one to call as to what a right-action is, or even a best-action.

 

If someone can put the one consciousness possibility and how it delivers all that he’s ever wanted into the mind of this ONE guy that started the whole PRO-LIFE movement way back when ,  and he MIGHT choose to run with it in which case things would change, politics, the Trump situation with Hilary and Stein, and may change enough peoples perspective  on the DEATH PENALTY due to the HUGE amount of attention the whole thing will get from the ANTI-ABORTION lobby – and this huge juggernaut of a media machine that the Pro-life anti-abortion people have will also spill over and be a big boost to VEGETARIANISM and to  Animal Rights and such – Look into ODD FELLOWS INTERNATIONAL also when get time if this is pursued later (they were called “odd fellows” in earlier centuries because it was “odd” in those early times to see well-dressed gentlemen get down in gutters with street urchin children and poor women to offer help and aid and so they were “odd fellows.” Yup.

Fix Thinking

Here’s something else to help change things; It is logically, philosophically, religiously and even mathematically and scientifically provable that it is entirely possible there is but ONE single consciousness in ALL of material reality the Universe-wide, end to end, across trillions of stars and planets and all of time beginning to end as well and that this ONE conscious awareness pops into and out of our minds so fast, smallest amoeba to tiny ant and  you and I and an elephant and whale as well.

SCHOOL SANCTUARY CONCEPTUALLY EMBODIED IN NATURE AND IN THISBIRD  FAMILY PHOTO

Imagine then, if one will and can, that in all the universe there is but the one single consciousness that pops into and out of our minds, one can imagine, if one can, so fast, amoeba to ant to human to whale that none of us notices in the least and thinks all is well and good as we go along on our separate paths, like the toy children play with where a line of hard ball bearings are suspended by wires and when one ball is pulled back and released to bang into the line of similarly suspended balls, the end-most one pops out whilst those behind it move not a bit seemingly thought it is through they that the energy was clearly transmitted, sequentially along the line, so too perhaps consciousness in all of us.

 

As Ben Franklin put onto the first U.S. coinage; “We Are One,” is perhaps true in the real and not just philosophical sense as well, who knows ? And this is the point – it is IMPOSSIBLE to prove that this is NOT THE CASE – really – truly – it can be proved that it cannot be unproved that this is NOT POSSIBLE – this can’t be done for the existence or non-existence of a God but it CAN be done to validate that we MAY all be ONE consciousness which is kind of wild if I can communicate what I’m trying to get at here properly to you.

 

This is logically provable in ways many other similar sounding statements aren’t and that makes it possibly very special indeed because that sharing from amoeba to man is valid reason as well for man to not kill man nor amoeba whenever he can manage it – no need to limit the statement to man should not kill man, humankind should not kill, period and this would bear hugely one would imagine in the immorality of the DEATH PENALTY.

WHERE’S THE NEWS ABOUT MR. MANLEY (YOU )? SERIOUSLY – WHAT THE HECK?

 

Mr. Manley was YOUNGEST EVER WOW! What’s up with the School district and school Bd members – How is it everyone isn’t going nuts and screaming from the rooftops over Elijah, I don’t get it? Is it ageism? Ageism on a school board doesn’t bode well for kids does it? TOTAL NARCICISTIC AGEISM & COMPLETE Lack of Respect –  Aargh!

 

 

Mr. Manley you are in my opinion far, far more of a “legit” assignor of the inquiry into the possibility of a confabulating (misleading) factor relevant to the $200 billion dollar tobacco settlement – don’t you agree, yes?

 

 

Our brains are designed for a world of scarcity and competition and when the world isn’t that way we re-create the scarcity and competition – it’s in our DNA and in the way our brains are wired to do things.

A “SAY ONLY POSITIVE THINGS ALL DAY, “day!

 

A good idea, yes?

 

As a chance for students to model good behavior for teachers, really, is the idea – perhaps let the teachers think they are doing for their students though, or that it’s for both students and teachers to learn, otherwise the teachers most insecure about whether they can do it will be afraid and refuse, it is important to these that they feel superior to their students and being corrected will be especially hard for these so kids must be extra gentle with the worst (most nasty) of them since they are the ones that need the most understanding, attention, and love, that’s why they (scrunchy-face adults) act the way they do sometimes. How about an; Adopt a scrunchy-face adult day! Um, yeah, maybe not, but the “say only positive things day,”  that’s worth a try maybe,  yes?

If timed right, This could affect JILL STEIN and politics in general, an “INFINITE or BOUNDLESS FUTURES DAY has interesting POTENTIAL;  a Positive All Day – day, perhaps? – Or an Infinity and Beyond Day? Got a good name for it?

 

When one catches ones teacher saying something not positive, kids would be instructed to remember they can’t be negative and scold the teacher for being negative, that would be negative – instead they have to remember that Errors are Teaching moments and this is a teaching moment for their teacher to learn that an Errors are Opportunities to Learn, not opportunities to be punished, or scolded. I think the adults could be taught this if all the students have enough patience with them and spend a whole day focusing on teaching their teachers this, don’t you agree – they’re plenty smart enough, and they work hard at what they do, I think they’ll learn eventually, what do you think?

 

Hmm – this could be big I think were it to catch on, worth a thought. I was around when they first started “Earth Day” which I’m not even sure is a thing anymore, but the point is, I’m picturing a “GO ALL DAY WITOUT SAYINGONE SINGLE NEGATIVE THING” day and also perhaps making the additional point to spur people on, that is it very likely completely IMPOSSIBLE – which implicitly dares us all to try. It may be, impossible, I would not be surprised. But I mention it because were this day to JUST HAPPEN to be on the day of the FIRST DEBATE and if JILL STEIN is NOT part of the Debate (she may be) then to PROVIDE HER AN ADDED BOOST to differentiate herself and increase the talking points surrounding the event and to MUCH more tightly LINK her to the first debate despite her not being invited and also INJECT at the same time very clear positive messaging is a win, win, win, win so I’m mentioning it to you, yup: To reiterate – Were our district to push for this and why not, shouldn’t all candidates be nice, not say negative things and only tell the truth and only to see good things happen? Devious to wish to have kids see if it is even possible on an election day – and even more devious to suggest that it should be YOU as the moderator of the first debate, or Co-Moderator at a minimum should an all-positive separate speech be needed which by the way, need not be the official one – they can float a test balloon by creating an all positive speech purportedly just for “Browards’ Speak Positive One Whole Day Challenge” should she consider accepting it… just thinking out loud…  gets at a lot of issues all at once so I like it more I think on it, perhaps it’ll grow on one, yes?

 

Perhaps Dan Gohl would be the guy to speak to or write to He is the Chief Academic officer.  754-321-2618 – Daniel.gohl@browardschools.com to inquire about a district wide “NASTY TO NICE” or even better, “No Nasty, Just Nice All Day Spoken Word and Deed Day”- child movement –  or something-something –  anyway, you get the idea, right?

 

 

ON THE DAY OF PRESIDENTIAL SPEAKER DEBATES – CALL FOR A DAY OF POSITIVE TRUTH?

 

In summary; On the day of the 1st presidential debate call for a day at school and home – all school kids – to NOT say anything negative for One Entire Day and have Jill Stein if not at debate do an all positive debate with Elijah D. Manley to be the Moderator for Jill on that day.

 

 

 

SAVE OUR SHIRE!

 

 

PALANTIR & MATHEMATICA – These aren’t suggested contacts just for the tobacco stuff – they are needed to go after the big-picture issues discussed here – Complex PTSD and more. We may not be at a cusp or Tipping Point – we may already be FLIPPED, yes? These companies are knowledgeable about something called “chaos theory” and “agent-modeling” and use computer simulations to see the world in a “dynamical” way as a sort of chaotic dance and if asked would say that we are clearly at a tipping point in regard social, economic, scientific, and religious issues – all of these and more. These people literally run and own the world, are running it, do own it – not the people at these two companies – the two extremes of those who thing we are about to achieve what is called a “singularity” point and arrive at a world of abundance and cooperation and infinite expansion out into the Universe and perhaps even other dimensions some day while the rest see mankind as ultimately doomed by its own imperfections either on purpose, by accident, or by nature – oh yeah; or war or aliens or pollution and global warming and seas rising or asteroids, all kinds of bad things.

 

Doomsday-rians and Singularity-rians are 100 percent wrong and we may not be at a tipping point as much as mostly tipped all the way over. You ‘ve (perhaps) been the only place one can see the truth to be able to go to them (school board, people that make things happen) and convince them of how wrong they are seeing things (and see the basics of a decent life as minimal human rights – in that situation living out of a storage unit with your Mom – I’m not sure but I suspect that we may be at a tipping point between brains optimized for growth to take over from brains optimized for competition – in which case one might expect to see a flip occur as all our brains hop on board for the ride to abundance and plenty. Problem is, what if we are flipped, not on a cusp of change? From the inside of an already-flipped system what one see’s is the seeming divisions right and left and all the turmoil, yes? Seeing this turmoil, the black/white discrepancy between right/left politics and we think the seeming black-white differences are indicators of a flip-right or flip-left scenario but it may all be illusion, yes? What being flipped to the “nasty” side may mean is that one has a society and world prone to such starkly contrasting dichotomies in politics, economics, morality and government.

 

 

Homeostasis;

 

When one is at a cusp one already has one foot well into the side of abundance and plenty to “pull” the rest in… we have no foot or leg placed firmly in abundance, we have the full knowledge that it is possible now for us to go there, to put one and then both feet planted firmly on the side of abundance and cooperation over competition and scarcity but it is not a real thing yet – We are FLIPPED already is my concern – not about to Flip to the good or the bad, already Flipped and solidly on the nasty side too, not the good side. What I’ve just typed is a bunch of words and I can’t say for sure we are or aren’t flipped or at a tipping point or neither and just swinging back and forth from a centerline like we are programmed to do Homeostatically – but I do know there are people at both Mathematica and at Palantir to whom the above words will be a clarion call to find out which we are because it is their calling.

 

So when considering contacting them and when speaking of tobacco and longevity and what not with them, keep in mind the real reason and don’t be shy about bringing it up at every opportunity it is why they are being spoken with in the first place, not tobacco or even longevity or government whistleblower issues – it’s making sure the people in the know really know what’s up. I’m pretty sure they may have missed this – this is what it looks like from the INSIDE of a flipped system so it LOOKS like on is at a Tipping Point between two extremes, it is illusion to keep the system flipped, it is what flipped is and is supposed to look like – I’m pretty sure anyway.  Yep.

 

“Save our Shire” is a motto from Lord of Rings, Shire is where the dwarf’s live – and this is also the motto of many of the employee’s at the company Palantir in California. A “Palantir” is an all seeing globe in Lord of Rings – the Data Analysis people at the company Palantir do Tai-Chi regularly led by the boss – I’m hoping to seek their help to “save our shire.”

The people at both these companies, although you’ve walked the walk, have likely as not visited places and seen things in person that neither of us can hardly conceive of and so they will likely see the value in you as a young man and in the value of what you bring them hopefully too and perhaps be able to do things said value that neither of us can hardly conceive, one hopes, yes?

PUT SHELVES IN SCHOOLS NOT SRO School-Police – or 1/3rd each of S.I.U.’s, Firemen(& Firewomen) & E.M.T.’s!

 

Replace SRO’s with School Investigative Units (ridiculous acronym, yes?)

 

Replace School-Police-SRO’s with SHELVES

 

Seriously – Think on it a moment; this will AUTOMATICALLY remake prison-like schools into museum like places of wonder and learning as they should be and even more exciting, will make KIDS into STEWARDS, CARETAKERS, COLLECTORS and CURATORS, not FUTURE CRIMINALS to IMPRISON. Get it?

 

TAKE SCHOOL POLICE OUT AND PUT MORE SHELVES IN SCHOOLROOMS! Why shelves?  Classrooms with wall to wall shelves and display cases will look SILLY if all empty and will eventually be filled with stuff and treasures. This will concern some teachers that have zero control of their students and don’t understand what teaching is and requires because it has never been expected of them fully perhaps until faced with a bunch of shelves full of stuff and a roomful of eager rambunctious kids. What-cha-gonna-do is learn fast – guaranteed. Unless there’s an armed and dangerous miscreant lurking outside as a boogyman to scare the kids with, that’s what is done now to avoid having to be a real teacher, one can simply pretend to be a teacher by mouthing the words one’s pretend principal and pretend superintendent and pretend school board wishes on to say. Put in shelves and this really screws with the pretenders heads, if you follow. Here’s why –

 

Shelves in Schools will GIVE TEACHERS BACK CONTROL OF THEIR CLASSROOMS

 

Shouldn’t we try to TAKE BACK our public classrooms and schools from ARMED MILITARY TRAINED SCRUNCHY-FACED people we actually intentionally train to be robot-like, yes?

 

I’m not being insulting; these are good things in an army-grunt but not good for a peace-officer when both are TRAINED TO SHOOT TO KILL WHEN CONFRONTED. Better to remove these dangerously trained people immediately, yes? To allow persons trained in this military-manner to “police” a school militarily is unsafe; repeat – SRO’s, (and unfortunately many S.I.U.’s until their training is entirely in-house within a school districts’ control), are trained to shoot to kill when confronted by aiming for the center of mass – same as a military person trained to take out an enemy whose life has zero value in comparison to that of the soldier-police-shooter. For real – I mean; Really? I mean, like; He(c-k) NO!

 

Want a Peanut?

Why have kids be caretakers of their communities and be responsible for the ecology in and around each child’s home and build THIS INTO OUR municipal framework of laws and regulations to be a REAL thing where one can see that this or that area doesn’t have enough wild butterfly flowers or has just chopped down the last native rare Oak in five square miles – for one because NO ONE ELSE WILL and the other is because no one else can be trusted to have the right eyes and ears and heart for the job – the hearts of adults are broken or else we wouldn’t be having this discussion and we’d be speaking of having the kids take over the job that the adults are doing in protecting and caring for things – but the adults ARENT properly protecting and caring for things, and they are ill in this way and need the help of kids. Seriously – kids modeling correct behavior will help them to heal and be better.  Here is how the healing happens; Kids doing their “job” to care for their homes and schools and be good STEWARDS and also CARETAKERS and COLLECTORS and CURATORS will help to teach “mindfulness” to adults.

 

Mindfulness is a big word for noticing things one doesn’t normally notice. Here’s an example; Just yesterday a squirrel left a brand new peanut at my front door inside the screen when it must have been left open briefly. I recently stopped putting peanut butter on tree’s out front, slowed down first, now out. It could be coincidence, but I don’t think so, I’m often “gifted” with little stones and such where I feed them. They also like to play with sticks and leaves on occasion, tossing them about like toy balls – also seen them lay on their back and either dare another to come over and tickle them, or what I’m not sure, but it also involves popping straight up in the air to do a little somersault and land right where you started as if to say; see if you can do that! So, perhaps I’m anthropomorphizing, but I don’t believe so, I think my comment about tickling may be anthropomorphizing, but not so with the equitable fair-trade gifting of the peanut and stones – social creatures are hardwired from birth to see this as a really, really BIG THING, humans especially – chimpanzees and squirrels too – if a squirrel isn’t a monkey in a squirrel-suit, I don’t know what is.

 

I wonder if my squirrels think it’s their fault perhaps that I’m not giving them any more peanut butter and I’m holding back; Alas, no… I’m just not going to be here to feed peanut butter soon, and ran out.  Sigh –It’s always the innocents isn’t it that suffer for others pains, irrational fears and errors?  Squirrels and kids always suffer when adults see them as competition – I can’t count the number of seriously concerned animated red faces I’ve seen all scrunched-up sputtering about this reason or that reason, that the reasons vary so widely is the first clue that they are all nonsense, of course – these people are TERRIFIED of being where the squirrel and the child are, ever – to the bone terrified that someone will see that in all the world there is no child more sad, confused, helpless, pathetic and lost nor any squirrel so small, nor as easy to dismiss as an inconsequential nothing, not even human, not remotely – as those that fear the child and squirrel.

 

It is the children that do the most horrendous acts that are screaming out loudest for attention, belonging, and empathy for themselves and when grown up, which happens to most, then horrendous acts of incivility and disrespect will be directed at the weaker, the old, the sick, the young, the differently-abled, women, poor, wherever succor can be found through misery the adult-child starving still for attention, belonging and empathy will seek it out in all the wrong ways and all the wrong places. Be proud of being “righteously homeless” and know that it is TRUE that there IS a GREAT SHAME that is rightfully associated with homelessness, with being homeless, and with being poor and that shame is for all those that are not when a righteous young man such as yourself and such as your Mom, and myself as well, are homeless not because of a lack of willingness to work, nor even from lack of money or gifts in exchange for what is needed, but rather due the sickness that demands the poor and homeless serve as the scapegoats for the self-hate and misery of the larger surrounding community.

 

 

 

SHELTER, FOOD & HEALTH ARE HUMAN RIGHTS, RIGHT? – yes?

 

 

What do you think of; A World Clock to countdown how close we are or aren’t to becoming a “humane” world and species? Good idea, yes?

 

SHELTER, FOOD & HEALTH ARE HUMAN RIGHTS – These can be what the Human

Rights Clock ticks towards perhaps – a kind of opposite to the countdown to nuclear Armageddon (that spell-checkers automatically capitalize the “a” in Armageddon is a bit creepy in retrospect, yes?) clock that is ALWAYS published on the front page of the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists – One of the transhumanist and also longevity and singularity and futurist magazines, or better yet, all of them can publish yours, and whom else but children could be trusted with such a task I ask you, so kids it should be to put-out a monthly Countdown to a Humane World Clock , yes?

 

One wonders; What Organization is Tracking the Numbers that Agree to this? We should find them and if no one is, then become that Information Source and perhaps copy the BULLENTIN OF ATOMIC SCIENTISTS that public an “hours till midnight” Doomsday clock showing how close they think mankind is moving towards atomic destruction as things happen in the world to make it more or less likely. Perhaps a clock not for midnight but for…. 8AM – almost time to Wake Up? Greet the rising Sun with a hoot and a harmonious song, yes?

 

When this new proposed “Count-down to a Humane World Clock” hits 8 or noon or midnight or whatever the idea is that this means that; Everyone in the world will be sheltered, fed, and cared for health wise and spiritually too one would presume if all these are taken care of by then.

 

 

Elijah,

It was incredibly brave of you to speak of your homelessness, very brave indeed. Very manly, Mr. Manley (Yep, had to, so-sorry;). If one is homeless and one doesn’t feel shame, there may be a reason; sometimes the shame is in those around one. It is best to look them in the eye and try to be mindful of why they are that way. This will better enable one to see the fear, aching for belonging, and misery that in these persons. Those that denigrate the weak, homeless, children, elderly; these persons are gnawing and cutting deeply into not just themselves but also, oddly, our-selves as well, yes?

 

Don’t hide ones pity and sadness at the moral poverty of others, let these others (public) see one would help them if one could. In fact, by being where one is, even if homeless, for by doing so one is helping them immeasurably for without such examples set before us we are without hope whether realizing it or not – so thank you Elijah, sincerely and NOT just for your brave honesty but for the real-core reason you did it (not to be called brave and be complimented about it, clearly, duh!); but to help us (adults). Boy do we ever need it, yes? 😉

 

I mean, like, did you read that first nasty reactive-scarcity-competitive-challenging-negative sounding version of this same missive/email, I hope not; no?

 

This email is a pro-active-abundant-cooperative-rewarding-positive sounding version, yes?

So what’s up?

 

What can we do to PROMOTE our OWN young 17 year old Mr. Elijah Manley – teachers, Union and PTA can all be getting the word out about what he’s accomplished being the youngest ever to run for president as part of the Green Party because it is a source of pride for all Broward schoolkids, yes?

 

His name should be known by all 250,000 kids in Broward, yes?

 

Here’s an awesome opportunity to show kids what a kid can do to raise them up – woo-hoo! And high-fives all-round too!

 

Students, parents and teachers can ALL brag with pride on this young man in our midst and give him a “shout-out,” yes?

 

Mr Manley and mom were once homeless in a storage unit if you haven’t heard him speak on it.

 

He shamed (in a good way, kinda?) the entire county and school district (nation too) after everyone (on the school board) said flat out (they kinda did, yes?) that we have adequate Resources and provide sufficient Services that we CLEARLY do NOT, yes?

 

Our school board and superintendent misspoke, yes?

 

As one the board said we have resources (H.E.A.R.T.) although if so then it is impossible to explain what Mr. Manley and his mom were doing in a storage unit if there really was housing available, yes?

Salt of the Earth Held in Broward, Florida Jails and Prisons?

a revolutiona truth told with good intent is a good thing indeed agreed yes question markAll

Salt of the Earth Held in Broward, Florida Jails and Prisons? – Hospitals and Schools?

Florida’s Most Serious Epidemic is NOT the Zika Virus, it is CPTSD!

All Institutions serving the Weak and Powerless in Regions suffering Complex PTSD are affected by high levels of Toxic Stress; notable examples include Compton, CA, Chicago, Ill., and Broward County, Florida.

A Most Amazing Thing – “Salt of the Earth”

I recently learned of the most amazing thing and am anxious to share it with you – People on the inside of our U.S. jails, as a group, all take the view that the larger society on the “outside” is mentally-ill! Are they right? Error is opportunity to teach and to learn not to punish or be punished, OK? One in three kids abused nationally is not OK, OK?

When discussed this simple fact is not shared as an opinion or a joke, instead it is seen as simple fact and “is what it is;” a presumed, a given. I have no idea how long this fascinating perspective has been the case, for some time I’d guess. Think on this a moment. Incredibly, this perspective is so commonly-held on the “inside” that it is a given and taken for granted that all know it! Here in South Florida, inmates in our Broward County, Florida jails and prisons commonly speak among themselves of how those on the inside are the healthy ones and those on the outside the mentally unhealthy and hurting ones. Those of us on the outside of U.S. jails and prisons are seen as mentally ill by those on the inside – This is rather astounding isn’t it, yes? The only people that told truth and were trustworthy in my brief experience in our Broward jail, discounting braggadocio to compensate for the fear and loss of autonomy, were those on the inside; those employed by the State felt no obligations to truth or humanity. Inmates however held onto both truth and humane ideals admirably despite their surly treatment. Surely the phrase “salt of the Earth” was coined for just such scenarios; to righteously describe inmates as “salt of the Earth” is no idle compliment. It is also a clear damnation of those “outside;” Something to think upon, yes?

We are ill and our illness has put our children and young adults in harm’s way and in trouble and in need of our immediate help – these are not strangers, they are our sons and daughters. If one removed; the homeless people, people with addiction problems, mental illness, petty drug charges, parole violations designed to keep the parolee victims in a perpetual cycle of incarceration and poverty, and those simply there because they are unable to pay their way out from one or more civil infractions that are not criminal – if one removes all of these – our Broward County Jails would be EMPTY – no exaggeration.  Inmates readily admit to criminal acts, to say they lie about this is itself a lie – and in addition to admissions having done wrong against the State in describing the circumstances of their personal guilt each person will also have an additional tale of woe to tell of wrongs to them by the State; Two wrongs do not make a right.

CPTSD Toxic-Stress Affects Everyone; Inside and Outside.

Inmates, prisoners and detainee’s often discuss that those inside (not the jailors, the jailed) are more humane and mentally stable; they come by this presumption by observation of how they themselves have been treated in their lives as viewed through the lens of where they are now and how those inside the jails and prisons are treated and looked upon and perceived – how those inside our jails are viewed by their jailers and by those on the outside that incarcerated them, both.

 

Florida’s Most Serious Epidemic is NOT the Zika Virus, it is CPTSD!

Affected organizations are showing Institutional Complex PTSD Symptoms at both the individual and organizational levels. The degree of severity is measurable using the same statistical analysis as is used with other pathological and highly contagious epidemic-causing diseases in addition to simple direct observation.

 

What is PTSD and CPTSD?

Having PTSD does not mean one is damaged; it means one is perfectly adapted to the real world. When a soldier returns with Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, PTSD, the person is not “damaged” in the conventional sense – they have become more perfectly adapted to their environment, the real environment, the one where traumatic horrors really do happen to people, not the world the way we wish it was – and so their brain has adapted to be better able to deal with dangerous situations in the future and be more likely to survive.

 

People with PTSD and CPTSD have re-tuned their brain to be able to react faster to unexpected situations and noises, to see things as more black and white to be able to make snap judgements faster, to be more selfish and aggressive in times of scarcity and more conservative in ones willingness to share with those deemed different. A glass half-filled becomes a glass half empty. The person is different in an adaptive way to the world as it really is, a world where babies really do explode in front of one and this changes both who we are and how we see things, how we make judgements, how we think, and how we and interact with others.

 

CALL TO ACTION – This Needs Doing Right Now, Today:

Five, ten and up to twenty percent of all Broward prisoners are in custody because they are denied reasonable access to phones and phone numbers. This is beyond surreal. The State is profiting by literally kidnapping people to fill jail house beds. I’ve seen it. I have proof. You are about to hear of it and more right here, right now and there will be no denying it.

 

To repeat; Five, ten and up to twenty percent of ALL persons in Broward prisoners are there for the sole reason that they have no way to reach anyone on the outside to provide help and are denied reasonable access to both free phones and to phone numbers!

 

Your sons and daughters are in jail because they’ve been kidnapped and cannot call out to friends or family, this is done intentionally to profit by their filling the jailhouse beds to capacity and beyond. It doesn’t sound possible or real. It shouldn’t be possible, it shouldn’t be reality.

 

Denial of access to both free phones and to phone numbers! It is happening now. You didn’t know before, but after reading this, you will. You and I and many others will end the injustice and free many children within the week by doing this simple thing, count on it – we must Make-It-So, OK?

 

 

What is C-PTSD?

Complex PTSD is behaviorally transmitted and therefore can result in Epidemic outbreaks. What is behaviorally transmitted Complex-PTSD? Why should someone that hasn’t suffered th trauma of going to war or seen a drive-by shooting care? Complex PTSD is a social disease – it is Behaviorally Transmitted Neurotoxic Stress that causes our brains and our perceptions and beliefs about the world we live in to change and adapt to be better suited to a world that is dangerous, short of resources, brutal and competitive even when this is not an accurate of the real world we live in – it will still seem to be all of these things to those affected.

 

CPTSD affects Institutions Serving the Weakest and most Powerless the Most!

How can one tell if one or one’s community has CPTSD? Even those with CPTSD can diagnose CPTSD in their community, in themselves and in others after first overcoming any initial resistance to the concept as would be expected, especially for one predisposed to be more emotionally contrary and reactive, more distrustful, and inclined to see things in terms of bad and good, black and white. It is now possible to use “big data” to produce maps to show area’s where key health and social indicators will indicate if and where epidemic levels of toxic stress are occurring and causing rampant behavioral transmission of unwanted traits in the larger society – these area’s then light-up like Christmas tree’s to show problem area’s – as the result of decades of gross fiduciary and humanitarian abuses, Florida is one such Christmas tree, unfortunately.

 

Fully 1/10th of the U.S. Population is Already On-board and Aware of our National Mental Un-Healthiness – and now it has a name; Complex PTSD.

 

Keep in mind that fully one-tenth of the population has now walked in the shoes and flip-flops of those in a prison or jail by being there themselves – more than one half, the majority of U.S. citizens now has a direct familial and/or friendship connection to one or more persons that have served time in a U.S. jail or prison – the majority of us have either been there ourselves or have someone in our lives of significance that has been there, incredibly. “They” know what’s going on, what of the rest, what of you, good reader?

 

What does a community suffering CPTSD look like – our community – Broward County, Florida. It is not hard to tell when a Complex PTSD epidemic has and is occurring – like the measles and chicken pox, there’s no hiding it, it’s right out front and in one’s face for all to see that care to look. When it has become an epidemic, toxic-stress induced CPTSD pathology can be found by searching through large data sets to connect disparate tidbits of information or it can be had by simple observation of ones surroundings.

CPTSD is a REAL injury NOT a Political or Social OPINION OK.

  • When a surreal ten to twenty percent of persons in jail are simply there because they’ve been kidnapped and are not able to contact anyone on the outside – this indicates some type of pathology (lawlessness, or madness) surely, yes?

 

  • Officers ignoring the pleas of a young former Boyd Anderson High School football player in a holding cell potentially dying of head trauma and finding humor in it, this is pathology, yes?

 

  • Officers’ ignoring a young homeless and hungry girl for the thrill of catching speeding motorists is a sign of some sort of pathology, yes?

 

  • Officers serving breakfast at 3AM in county jails can be for just one reason – to harass – Yes? Slave labor is used so that there is no cost differential of any significance, which makes cost a completely bogus excuse – it is about PUNISHMENT, power and control – by a sadly damaged and screaming for help “outside” world. That those on the inside already speak of the mechanics of CPTSD epidemics without knowing the biology and science behind it is not amazing, they live it every day regardless of what fancy words or concepts one wishes to use to describe “it” – “it” is real and they know of it intimately in a way hollow words like Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder cannot hope to ever fully describe.

 

  • Officers nonchalantly joking about whether pets left unattended will survive or not after an arrest-kidnapping, this too is pathology, yes?

 

  • Pathology is indicated when U.S. veterans must deny being veterans on their paperwork to be treated properly in Broward jails and prisons, yes?

 

  • Pathology is indicated when veterans are told additional medical care shouldn’t be expected since the veteran voluntarily chose to go back a second time, after all, yes?

 

  • Pathology is when everyone knows that children’s back’s ache from overly large textbooks and no one can quite figure out how to make one book into two books, yes?

 

  • Pathology is when prisoners too have noticed and regularly discuss that mental illness and a lack of humanity are the rule on the “outside,” yes?

 

  • Pathology is when a doctor cannot distinguish torture from his Doctor’s Oath to do no harm and happily prescribes pain medication every 6 instead of every 4 hours to increase the patients suffering and admits as much saying that it will help motivate the person to not do the undesired behavior in the future – this is an inhumane and gross pathology, yes?

 

  • Pathology is when a hospital disgorges itself of the unwanted by carrying a young girl out their front door, not the emergency door in this example, cross-legged and frothing at the mouth, unable to walk herself or focus from eyes being crossed and suffering small seizures, with the excuse that 3 days prior the person had been signed-off as being competent to discharge themselves, yes?

 

  • Pathology is when a young mom of three young school age children loses her job and calls 211 only be provided a circular list of phone numbers without connection to resources and is told by the State that they will call back in a week or two – knowing that children cannot go weeks without food and shelter – and all the while social service organizations busily hand out awards to one another while speaking of “wraparound” services for the indigent – this is a profound and deeply sad pathology, yes?

 

  • Pathology is when middle-school girls little taller than a footstool are handcuffed in their classroom in front of every person in the world that matters to them socially and the officer is seen to walk proudly out the schools front door, back straight, chest held high, as if leading a trophy horse, yes?

 

  • Pathology is when out of 250 Broward schools, only 5 of the schools can say that more than half will graduate able to pass the minimum standards for all 6 main subjects that are the national standard, this too is a signpost to a deep social pathology, yes?

 

  • Isn’t it more pathological than criminal when one creates fake diplomas for 6,000 Broward H.S. “graduates” – mostly black – lest the lack of a diploma supposedly hinder their job prospects (which presumably no one expects to require them to be educated or to be able to read at grade level) and more importantly, possibly hinder the job prospects of those that failed to fund an adequate education for them, yes?

 

  • Societal pathology is certainly indicated when special protections designed for children, babies and their Moms have are extended to include and cover Attorneys who are seen as being Equal in Need to Babies when it comes to securing financial support and protections in the eyes of a severely compromised legal system in South Florida and nationwide. A “purge” is a legal process that insures that child care payments go to children from a parent or see that parent risk jail time and pulling of ones driver’s license while a “civil purge” insures that attorneys fee’s go to attorneys from any citizen owing them money or the citizen risks going to jail and loss of license; this is (severely) pathological too, yes?

 

a big no way not again this time

Attorneys and Babies should NOT be equal under the Law, OK?

 

I now have personal observations to share across the board in all of our main service organizations here in Broward.

 

By definition of the behaviorally-transmitted nature of the CPTSD spectrum disorder it will not be found in just one local institution or a few once well established, it will be found in all key organizations serving the weakest and most voiceless of us, the young, old, infirm, disadvantaged, poor and more – and where found it is not subtle, but onerous and grotesque in its dimensions. These then are the Two calling cards of a full-onset epidemic that make Societal and Institutional CPTSD diagnosis trivial; its (1) ubiquity and (2) obviousness.

How can one discern pathology versus simple bad decision making?

Pathology is with taking more kids out of classrooms in handcuffs than any other place in the world, right here in Broward County, Florida. Pathology is having more ROTC schools and school “Resource” officers (police) in schools than the most crime-ridden cities in the nation. Pathology is electing a Governor that pled guilty to the largest Medicaid fraud case in history for stealing $250,000,000 dollars and then paid a fine to still be elected.

a child in need needs a teacher friend indeed

Think again if you think you know how punishment is meted out in South Florida, to whom, and why; It is a game to keep the jail beds full to make money for the State, pure and simple. Everyone in the jails and prisons knows it, feels it and suffers for it. It is a game we should not be playing because the pieces on the board are real people and the board is our own neighborhoods.

 

For the disadvantaged and weak this is not a game; A young Boyd Anderson former football player after projectile vomiting is unable to stay awake in his cell is ignored and denied use of a phone as a laughing matter because he should have known to not bang his head on a police car window or fight with his girlfriend – this is not OK, OK?

What does a community suffering CPTSD look like?

One Indicator of CPTSD is that there is no “low” below which we won’t sink – No, really; none.

Children and infants and mom’s and dad’s and Grandma’s and Grandpa’s all out on the streets by the hundreds without reliable overnight shelter or food is not OK, OK? If one is confused at where to draw the line beyond which one is unwilling to go – draw it at women and children without adequate food and shelter. Draw this line now, here.

All the information needed to accomplish the goal of flipping the jail system from Inhuman to Humane is detailed here.

 

Small Changes with Big Effect – “Reckless” Behavior Means Class Actionable

Let me explain; the list below seems trivial in some ways, it is not. The list below includes seeming trivial items, for example, “More Access to Phone Directories.” This seems trivial but the BIG EFFECT is that this alone will REDUCE the number of persons in jail and speed their processing in that at any one time up to 20% of ALL those imprisoned are there because they do not have access to an updated or any other phone book or way to find numbers. The item “Make More Calls” solves the attendant problem that even if one did have access to numbers one would still be unable to call anyone since calls are blocked unless set up ahead of time, which is nonsensical and once set up costs money which many do not have all of which is unacceptable.

a Statue of Liberty Chain Broken End Close Up

“Reckless” Behavior Means Class Actionable

Two Blankets Not One; In the Sherriff’s main jail that ALL must go through twice if sent anywhere else the transferee’s and detainee’s and inmates and trustee’s (jail helpers get one day off their sentence for every six days worked – so can work seven days a week I wonder?) Visitors are provided just one blanket and no sheets, just a nasty thin plastic-clad mattress that is used by potentially hundreds between cleanings – the place is a pig-sty downtown and needs a good cleaning far more frequently than it is getting. Two blankets means one can lay on one blanket and use the other as cover or to fold as a make-do pillow since no pillows are provided; a small change for a big effect.

 

Fix Thinking

Children and Babies and Attorneys are all Equal in Attorneys Eyes since we have both Criminal Purges for children and Civil Purges for civil matters which for all practical purposes means attorneys, Oh My!

 

Gulf War Veterans Must Deny Being Veteran to Get Treated Right or face having all Government of ones checks and payments cut off by Veterans Administration as if one never existed, OH MY!

 

When the righteous err; Odd-fact – If one has to bet one’s life that one is being told truth and not lies, ask an inmate, not a jailer and one is far more likely to come out alive.

 

 

NEWSFLASH ALERT:

 

The CONSTITUTION of the UNITED STATES says outright and Guarantee’s UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE for all Prisoners – No kidding!

 

Our founding fathers wrote this solidly into the Constitution In 1776 they knew to write this into our constitution right up front because that was how important it was to them, even way back then – and especially given how prisoners were commonly treated in their day and age.

 

Here are Some Changes Needed that can be Accomplished Immediately with Little Effort:

 

Two Blankets not One – in Broward main jail downtown Ft. Lauderdale

More Food – A 140 pound kid losing 14 pounds in one week is NOT OK, OK?

Better Food – Menu items are often missing from that published, Salt is many times maximum suggested, not a scrap of raw vegetables, salad or fruits other than a few apples per week, period.

Hotter Meals – A microwave and heat lamps, perhaps.

Clean Downtown Jail – and provide more water

Faster Indigent Hygiene Goods – waiting a week to get a toothbrush and pencil and paper is NOT, OK, OK?

More Books – than a few dozen random books brought in on a cart once a week for an hour before being wheeled back out.

More Real Outside Time – an enclosed basketball is not anyone’s definition of outside, OK?

More Natural Sunlight – more than zero, OK?

More Access to Phone Directories – It is surreal that a large number of persons are in jail simply for lack of a phone book or directory and access to a phone, using people as cattle, “head for beds,” this is criminal.

More Free Local Calls – see above

More Free Long Distance Calls – see above

More Monitoring of Calls – Means are available and this can be accomplished using new technologies and local effort.

More Legal Help – as compared to none in most cases

 

More UNITED STATES CONSTITUION MANDATED Medical Care for Addicts of;

Heroin, Alcohol, Pills, Nicotine, Caffeine, Speed and Cocaine

Depression, Dental, skin-related and other illnesses.

 

Arrange for Dogs & PETS to come visit the Prisons and Jails (i.e.; service animals) under the auspices of the GED program run by the SDBC.

 

Equity for differently abled not equality

Uber-like Cell-phone App, Maps & Ads for safe places to sleep in ones car if homeless

 

More Respect

More Humane Imprisonment

 

Accomplishing ALL of the Above will require Little Time & Little Effort & Little Money

This is done quickly and with very little effort required of anyone in the chain of communications other than a few cell phone calls and emails to the right parties in a chain beginning with you, good reader, today, now as you read along. Each effort made by any of us is a step on the path to the singular goal of flipping our jails from nasty to nice. In this effort we will soon discover that real change cannot be done unless we first flip ourselves from nasty to nice on the outside of our jails to effect the desired changes on the inside.

 

No Bull – Simple – Fast – Free

Following are the steps as well as their explanations of how each call and email will impact and make more possible the end goal to see jails flip from Harming to Helping and from Punishing to Healing.

 

No Entities – Just Personal-WILL to Make-It-So

This is a step by step, call by call detailed plan to deliver a complete change in our Broward Jail system without need of a single Sherriff, or lobbyist or politician to change and have attorneys create laws and then have judiciary and police and nowadays, sadly, even use military equipment and tactics to enforce them.

 

No Money

No new taxes or hidden taxes nor any significant cost or exchange of wealth from one party to another is needed. Just one thing covers it all; the WILL to Make-It-So.

a child in need needs a teacher friend indeed

Everything described below is doable this week – real and lasting improvements begun and done and all accomplished in ONE WEEK! One week beginning now – September 6, 2016.

 

By Tuesday of next week the entirety of the Jail system from the ground up to the very concepts at its core will be turned topsy-turvy upside-down and Flipped from an Inhumane and factory-robot-people focused on scarcity and competition where errors are opportunities to Punish or be Punished to a jail system that is Humane; and designed to be healing not punishing – where there is the Expectation of creativity focused on Abundance and Cooperation where Errors are seen as Opportunities to Learn and to Teach.

Problems in our Jail and Prison Systems Call for Dramatic Reforms – Ransom is not Righteousness; Sympathy is not Empathy

It is worth noting that in the mid-1990’s it was the Democratic Bill Clinton that put so many in jail and took away so many prisoner protections – A good old boy deep south Democrat is a good old boy deep south Republican, you hear me, boy? Former president Clinton has since seen the light so he has said in which case a visit would be the least expected upon completion of the following, step by step plan of action.

OPTIONS FOR MAKING PHONE NUMBERS AVAILABLE IMMEDIATELY TO ALL INMATES TO ENABLE THEM TO GET OUT – Inmates in jail are given the “opportunity” to “work” off time by allowing themselves to be slaves in lieu of pay, this is common practice and despite the immorality of it, can be used for the time being as the quickest route to providing phone number access to inmates by assigning one of these to each facility to use printed phone books to look up numbers for inmates – problem of phone number access solved and done for the time being at least – NOW!

An electronic system can be arranged for and installed in the following weeks. Free information inquiries to reach out to friends and relative out of State can also be easily and quickly accomplished and delivered within the week by requesting alteration of the current phone system to allow for simple nationwide 411 queries of phone numbers. In regard security issues; automated systems also exist to assist in the screening of calls made by inmates, this is also doable in the coming weeks but need not be implemented immediately in that the current oversight system can be utilized effectively for the time being.

Understand that it is inexcusable and inhumane in the extreme to not have delivered at least this minimum acceptable access and way out for many of these unfortunate victims of a system gone MAD to not be providing reasonable access to phones and numbers by the second week of September 2016.

 

If you think this is all just the way people are – stop reading right now and go on about your day. For the rest of you – Don’t read further; you are called to immediate action.

No righteous person can read this without feeling immediately compelled to email the Sheriff’s office to demand immediate increased access to phones and phone numbers for inmates. Right now – Later, a complete re-evaluation of the system beginning with a permanent Baddass Momma’s Bison Brigade presence in every facility to can begin fixing things.

a-musk-ox-circle-of-protection

Our sons and daughters are in jail because they’ve been kidnapped and cannot call out to friends or family. This is the very definition in the Legal Sense of the word, “Recklessness.” This is recklessness because it is done intentionally to profit by filling jailhouse beds to capacity and beyond. Phone books and access to phones must be provided immediately – not asked for – not to begin a process to secure changes – but DELIVERED and DONE immediately, within the week. Period. OK?

a challenge to look her in the eye and deny her food and shelter for five days until St of FL calls

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

None of us has the power to see our will done, we are all equal in our powerlessness against the State – and for this very reason we have a constitution and Democracy and for many also, a religion. This is Organized Recklessness perpetuated by the State of Florida and by the Sheriff in Broward County.

We’ve all read the prison and jail expose stories. This story is different. It is specifically about Broward jails and prisons. If no one you know has been to a prison or jail then don’t be deceived, each of us personally suffer the consequences of our ignorance every day without knowing it, as do family and friends closest to us regardless of their jail or prison history or complete lack thereof. We are not all we can be. You and your family are not all you and they can be. You are all less. We are less. You and those you love have been and are being robbed and impoverished in the deepest sense and meaning of the word. We all suffer the consequences of institutionalized injustices. The institutions and organizations we depend upon to protect us are not all they can be and should be and we can change this.

The information and stories that follow are relevant not just to the broad topic of jails and human rights issues but specifically to the mothers of those raised-up here in Broward County – your children, our children; Broward’s children, young adults, full adults and elderly – all of us are affected when we prey upon the weak, voiceless, and most powerless of us.

Ransom is not Righteousness; Sympathy is not Empathy

Mothers of All Broward Police Officers – There is a visible, tangible difference between the toxic stress levels of Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach police forces – and in how they conduct themselves on the street – and they and those they serve and in some cases prey-upon, know it all too well – are you aware of it?

Mothers of All Broward Police Officers – You need to know what the State has done and is doing to your Children that are Police Officers. They are not who they used to be. They are not who you think they are. Mothers of police officers; Your children need your help now as much as and more in many invisible ways than the so-called criminals that they pursue for ransom and not righteousness.

Too many stories, so many, all coming forward in one’s mind demanding to be told – the cacophony is overwhelming. I will try. Please forgive the chaos of the delivery, it is overwhelming and each story, every quote to do it justice would require its own clarion horn to do right by it. I will try. Be patient good reader, please.

Broward School Boards Leading Ladies and Gloria Steinems Wisdom

BOB – A man idly shuffles around the jail, presumably suffering an early dementia perhaps compounded by a life of homelessness and alcoholism. He has no knowledge of what he did to arrive in jail. He also never knows when the last meal was and whether it was breakfast, lunch, or dinner. He is unable to recall such details as he shuffles his feet to go to and fro. Inmates look out for him as might a mother – an inmate from a nearby table pats him solidly on the back as he chokes on a bite of food. Other inmates patiently reassure him that mealtime is not far away, something they must do repeatedly all day, every day. He was tackled off of his bike one inmate believes, for a missing headlight, as happened to the inmate relaying the story – but no one is sure. Sympathy is visible in the eyes of those nearby as this is discussed and transpires, and searching for irritation at the constant inconvenience one finds no sign of it, astonishingly. These are boys and young men any good momma would be proud to claim as her own. Here is a boy any momma can be proud of.

 

THOMAS – A young man only just out of Anderson Boyd High School pounds his head against a police cruisers plastic compartment barrier in frustration at his plight and later projectile vomits in his holding cell multiple times then lays down on the cold concrete floor next to the open and stinking urinal with his head under a concrete wall bench, unable to stay awake. Holding cell mates ask if he is aware he might have a concussion. He responds that he’s had lots of concussions and been knocked out playing football and on the streets and that this isn’t a concussion, he’s just tired, and it doesn’t hurt. He is however visibly devastated at what has happened and his being in the cell. His self-diagnosis could not be more incorrect and misguided in that prior concusses dramatically increase health risks from subsequent ones. Officers and nurses notified of the problem say flat out that it isn’t their problem and that he deserves it for bashing his head against State property. Cellmates share food, comforting words and advice with the young man pertaining to his plight – sympathy is visible in their eyes. A small spot of vomit lands on a young man, a veteran of the Gulf Wars,  standing near the toilet – he says nothing and instead hides the incident so as to not further embarrass the boy in distress. These are boys and young men any good momma would be proud to claim as her own. Here is a boy any momma can be proud of.

 

DANNY – A young man just out of Cooper City High (?) keeps relaying his frustration at his impending loss of a job, place that he lives, and inability to be there for his weekly visitation with his daughter because of an allegedly missed $200 dollar monthly payment, normally automatically taken out of his paycheck but which, perhaps incorrectly, ballooned to $460 in the month just passed without his knowing, perhaps due to a computer error, or to his, but no matter either way. When approached this is his tale of woe – unless pressed, he does not see the need to relay other details in that they seem to him to be less important, by far. Details such as that he was pulled over not for a traffic infraction, or a missing tail light, but for having dreadlocks in a town where police equate dreadlocks with drug possession; he does not mention that the officer approached his vehicle with his hand on his gun. Wearing a construction overall with the companies name above the pocket, when asked if there are any weapons in the car, the young man responds that there is a pocket knife used in his demolition work to cut cords and fuses to which the officer responds with utmost aggression to point his gun point-blank at the forehead of the young boy-man, holding it steady as commands are barked out with the barrel 18 inches from his head. This is all du-rigor and of little note by comparison in this young boys world. He may lose his job not because they would mind his being in jail, but because he cannot call them or anyone else. The phones are there but one must first arrange for them to be able to accept the calls collect through a special State authorized for profit company – but there is no way to set this up since no one can call out to let outsiders to set up the service – it is absurd. The officers lie without a thought and say the system is telling the people being called how to set it up even though this is not true – people call again and again thinking the people are being informed to set up a collect call system but no calls are going through. The guards lie and don’t care that there is no phone access – it keeps everyone employed and as the guards often say, it isn’t their job to make it comfortable, they are there to keep everyone alive only – and many see inflicting of punishment and pain while keeping inmates alive as their job and who can blame them since this is exactly what the entire system is clearly set up to do, precisely. It is not about saving money; many injustices done inmates cost more, not less, but are done for the purpose of making life inside less tolerable, not more – and to keep people there to be profited from longer. No one has any way to make phone calls and no one knows the numbers they need to call since cell phones now do for us what our memories used to do.

kidsThe young man bemoans missing that weekend’s visitation with his daughter and worries that he could be there for anything from weeks to months without any way to know or affect the outcome other than to wait. When asked to name any injustices done him, he does not mention those things just written of, the injustice foremost in his mind is how he is treated and that his daughter is the one that ultimately suffers, is suffering, and will suffer as the only outcome. He does not rage against the State’s using him as if he were a cow to be milked and keep the system going and financially viable on his and his daughter’s backs. I do, but hold my tongue. He is right. My righteousness is as nothing to his and I am ashamed. These are boys and young men any good momma would be proud to claim as her own. Here is a boy any momma can be proud of.

Have we internalized a Fill-in-the-Box mentality & morality? Are Errors an Opportunity to Teach or to Punish?

Dear SBBC, PTA, ACLU, NAACP, State of FL DOE, CSC, 211, ESE, BTU and BAT’s –

Where’s the Granular Data on racial segregation within schools as well as between schools, who is doing what about suicides, homeless, hungry, bullied, abused? Is it a moral responsibility? Why?

School isn’t just about FILLING-IN THE RIGHT BOX on a TEST; ASK YOUR School Boards, PTA’s, Teacher’s Unions and City Leaders & Mayors to STOP NEW CHARTER SCHOOL OPENINGS until the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WEIGHS-IN. The NAACP has asked for this in the following RESOLUTIONS. Isn’t it time to put an end to INEQUALITY & SEGREGATION? School shouldn’t be just about FILLING-IN THE RIGHT BOX on a TEST; School is about fairness and equality and exposure to different people and experiences and none of this happens in SEGREGATED schools – I attended Deerfield Beach H.S. for 4 years and did not have ONE SINGLE BLACK STUDENT in any of my classes for 4 years and the school was, incredibly, fully one-half black. As I said when on the diversity committee, we need granular data and our own staff said it was TOTALLY doable but for someone to ask them to do it – and Dr. Pope simply sat there when asked to specifically do just that – this is her job as she see’s it, to deflect and keep us busy wasting our time with her on silly useless powerless because of her and Mr. Runcie committee’s – So there we sat and we all looked at Dr. Pope and although Superintendent Mr. Runcie was not there, he might as well have been since his is the final word on the matter and that word is, by all appearance’s not only “no” but “hell no.”

School Board of Broward County, PTA’s, Teacher’s Union, City mayors and leaders – Ask for a moratorium on NEW Charter Applications and stop the Hemorrhaging, please. This would not affect current Charter schools.

QUESTION; I don’t believe charter schools are all negative, they are a challenge for public schools to improve performance and some have great standing and history. My children have attended Hollywood Academy of Arts and Science in Hollywood for 3 years now and we are very pleased.

RESPONSE; Public schools aren’t bad either – But NO Public school would DARE have young girls and their parents sign an agreement that if she ever gets pregnant that she will leave school as an outcast pariah. Can you imagine a young woman having to deal not only with pregnancy but the loss of support of every classmate she’s ever known her whole life that she’s attended school with since first grade possibly? I wonder how many black and Hispanic students are in your children’s classes – and more, I wonder about the schools those black and Hispanic children attend when not attending your child’s school – they and your children will all graduate someday hopefully and they will all be sharing the same world, shoulder to shoulder, side by side into the future – why shouldn’t they share the same classrooms too? Who benefits from a two-tier class-based education structure which is the inevitable outcome of our current course – children have ZERO protections and why should ANYONE’s tax dollars support such a HORRID situation where a century of protections for kids are swept away in the blink of an eye?

Look at this photo I’ve sent of a BROWARD document passed out at a district presentation to the DIVERSITY Committee of Broward Schools – It shows the APPEALS process for kids and parents – Note the box that says CHARTERS has NO LINES GOING IN OR OUT – THIS is why New Charter Requests must be put on Hold Now – in my opinion. Yours?

WOW! Great Read! WOW!

Follow the MONEY: Worldwide spending on tobacco products > $300 billion/year – Settlement to avoid bankruptcy, a paltry $200 billion spread out over 25 years. Spending on preventable diseases in CA alone exceeds $20 billion per year.

Kathleen Oropeza, Sun Sentinel; “Sadly, this is about money and power, not what’s best for our children. It’s a move to set traditional district public schools apart from so-called “public for-profit charter schools.” States spend $800 billion on public education annually, $19 billion in Florida. Ever since the unsecured loan/credit default fiasco of 2008, privatizers have been drooling over that evergreen pile of taxpayer cash spent on public schools. They don’t see this money as a shared community investment in our children. It’s just a glorious pot of gold ripe for private profit, not a public asset that belongs to us.

Every hedge fund has a charter school “investment” opportunity sector. Wealthy foreigners can buy citizenship for themselves and their families in exchange for investing in charter-school development. The problem is that this money transfer isn’t happening fast enough, meaning the public-school systems aren’t dissolving as planned.

It’s not for lack of trying. Politicians, whipped by lobbyists, have done their best to ratchet up the misery. In Florida they’ve defunded public schools by $4 billion, used high-stakes tests to harm teachers and hurt kids, diverted billions to fund vouchers for private religious schools and aggressively given public-school tax dollars to for-profit charter schools that often fail. Predictably, vendors, former bureaucrats, politicians and lobbyists have grown rich from the enterprise.”

Dear SBBC, PTA, ACLU, NAACP, State of FL DOE, CSC, 211, ESE, BTU and BAT’s –

 

What are OUR obligations to homeless hungry (and bullied) children in our communities, if any? Is there a MORAL obligation that we can all agree to, or no? If it is a moral obligation, then why is it a moral obligation, exactly? Does it matter if the reasons people see it as a moral obligation matter, as long as we all agree? Is there a way of looking at our obligation, or lack of obligation, to homeless hungry children that is universal and we can all agree on? Any ideas anyone? It is the hottest part of summer, now is the time to proffer aid if any aid is coming for many moms and kids in our district; RIGHT NOW, OK?

 

What do you think of the following;

WE ALL ONE is the raison d’etre for seeing to it we meet our MINIMUM obligations to feed and house babies, yes?

 

FYI – those were babies in the two strollers I picked up last week on my way to speak to the school board about homelessness, I still have the stroller in my truck – this is NOT OK, OK? Period. Why is it not OK? It is not OK because WE ALL ONE, OK? If you have a better reason or way to communicate the need of feeding and housing babies, I’m all ears, but I think for just three words it will be hard to do a better job of communicating why this HAS to be fixed NOW – I don’t think three can be beat, tied maybe – do you have three words that can convey a “why” as effectively to the question of “why feed and house homeless babies?” I’m all ears.

Does any of this make sense to you? We ALL One? If you are ALL stuck in the same place – a solution may be for everyone to consider the possibility that in all the incomprehensibly HUGE universe end to end from smallest microbe in the biggest ocean on the farthest planet to each of us ourselves there MAY well be but just ONE SINGLE CONSCIOUSNESS – it is provably as possible as that every consciousness is “separate” as we currently “see” things.

 

There are many ways to envision this “thought-experiment” but the easiest I think is to imagine consciousness a little like electricity that moves atom to atom down a copper wire, picture a conscious awareness “popping” into an a bug, it inhabits the brain and see’s and feels all that a but feels because in that incomprehensibly brief and fast moment that the consciousness pops into the bug, it is the bug – and then it “pops” and flows like an electron in a wire to the next bug, or to you or I and for a trillionth-trillionth-trillionth of a second this same singular consciousness would be you, or I. Other analogies abound, the child toy of suspended ball bearings enables one to pull one back and let it “ploink” and bash into its brethren also suspended in a linear line to “pop” the farthest suspended by string ball-bearing in the line while those in-between hardly move, as if by magic.

 

Another way to conceptualize it is as a multi-dimensional effect where one can move in space and time both perhaps and from our perspective “pop” from one place and time to another just as a 2-D person would see an intersecting 3-D object like a ball as it intersects their world enlarge and shrink against all the laws of conservation of mass and energy as if coming and appearing from nowhere aka; the popular book on the subject of just such a hypothetical 2-d person in the story “Flatlander.” This “we (are) all one consciousness” discussion is a “thought-experiment” I’m asking you to perform and it has a purpose – to enable you and us to “see” new colors, colors we currently have trouble seeing, OK? If you think on it with “mindfulness” in the context of the issues we are seeking to address (homelessness) I believe you will find that you will, through exertion of your will alone, find yourself seeing new “colors” on this issue – and by seeing new colors in this issue I happen to have an excellent explanation by way of an AMAZING fact just learned of by me the other day so my writings of it are rough currently, I apologize, but adequate I hope;

 

On Being and Seeing Blue;

 

The word “BLUE” is mentioned how many times in the Bible would you guess? “RED” is mentioned over a hundred times in the Illiad, “blue” fewer than ten, and in the Bible, not once, and the same goes for early writings and cultures in China, India, it simply didn’t seem to be seen by early peoples, how can this be? “Blue” is missing from all of man’s earliest texts. The Hinda(?) in Namibia(?) were filmed by an ethologist as they tried to identify blue or point to a color that wasn’t red, yellow or green on a screen and the confusion on their faces is palpable (the video is publicly available, will include link when find).

 

Anecdotal evidence indicates that children don’t see the sky as being blue as much as see it as the absence of color at first, and then when pressed will respond “white.” The color blue is exceedingly rare in nature and the writers of our earliest texts may never have seen it (blue eyes were in short supply back then) and hence had no dire need for a word for it – red ochre was the first technologically manufactured colorant used by early peoples around the world, the color blue is almost impossible to make, which is why it was rarely seen while the colors green and yellow became words a bit later on our timeline and were mentioned about ten times each, for example, in the Illiad by Homer.

 

We ALL One Consciousness means vegetarianism makes a lot MORE sense, OK?

 

We ALL One Consciousness means the death penalty makes a lot LESS sense, OK?

 

We ALL One Consciousness means homeless and hungry children makes a lot LESS sense, OK?

 

WE ALL ONE Consciousness means NO MORE HOMELESS CHILDREN, OK?

 

We ALL One Consciousness means that abortion makes a lot LESS sense, OK?

 

We ALL One Consciousness means that a woman’s right to choose makes a lot MORE sense, OK?

 

We ALL One Consciousness means corporal punishment makes a lot LESS sense, OK?

 

We ALL One Consciousness means that “ERRORS are opportunities to TEACH, not PUNISH” makes a lot MORE sense, OK?

 

We ALL One Consciousness means “Why a gun?” not “No guns,” OK?

 

So when I speak of WE ALL ONE, I mean to say we may very well be ALL ONE CONSCIOUSNESS, universe-wide, end-to end and from the beginning to the end of time, should it ever end (hope not).

 

This more detailed an explanation of “we are all one” than one typically hears I believe and describes one possible meaning of our all being one and thus is “horse of a different color” from one simply saying the cutesy statement, as did our good founding father Benjamin Franklin when he put identical words onto the very first U.S. coin with the motto “We Are One.” We may indeed all be one, and to a degree Ben could hardly have imagined, or did imagine just this I wonder? 😉

What are our MORAL obligations to Homeless, Hungry, Abused and Bullied Children? Why? WE ALL ONE?

Dear SBBC, PTA, ACLU, NAACP, State of FL DOE, CSC, 211, ESE, BTU and BAT’s –

 

What are OUR MORAL

obligations to homeless hungry (and bullied) children in our communities, if any? Is there a MORAL obligation that we can all agree to, or no? If it is a moral obligation, then why is it a moral obligation, exactly? Does it matter if the reasons people see it as a moral obligation matter, as long as we all agree? Is there a way of looking at our obligation, or lack of obligation, to homeless hungry children that is universal and we can all agree on? Any ideas anyone? It is the hottest part of summer, now is the time to proffer aid if any aid is coming for many moms and kids in our district; RIGHT NOW, OK?

 

What do you think of the following;

WE ALL ONE is the raison d’etre for seeing to it we meet our MINIMUM obligations to feed and house babies, yes?

 

FYI – those were babies in the two strollers I picked up last week on my way to speak to the school board about homelessness, I still have the stroller in my truck – this is NOT OK, OK? Period. Why is it not OK? It is not OK because WE ALL ONE, OK? If you have a better reason or way to communicate the need of feeding and housing babies, I’m all ears, but I think for just three words it will be hard to do a better job of communicating why this HAS to be fixed NOW – I don’t think three can be beat, tied maybe – do you have three words that can convey a “why” as effectively to the question of “why feed and house homeless babies?” I’m all ears. I thought you had that nice negotiator-woman that came over to our table and shared she was once homeless as someone that was going to be working on this, something change? Fill me in maybe I can help. You are a good communicator, direct and to the point. Me too sometimes I’d like to think. You asked about me speaking; Speak? Sure, anytime, but what is meant by; “create a system?”

 

One of our institutions needs to pick up the ball – or the school district – I’d be glad to speak to the board on the issue and limit it to that if you trust me – and the school board is waiting for someone to say they have to to give them direction, they can’t make a big book into two little ones, let’s be pragmatic – You are correct, I’d been contemplating the Union setting up and organizing things for the district – and if that isn’t doable it is understandable due to your new group re-organization and start-up and contractual negotiation issues – but to wipe your hands of it doesn’t put the teachers in any better light than the district as far as meeting the MINIMUM POSSIBLE needs of kids regardless of how flowery the words or how firmly and sincerely everyone is convinced otherwise or how loud anyone wants to get that it isn’t their job – if you cannot set up the needed system then this is understandable, as said – inaction is not OK however – the district will see your neglect of the kids as it’s “cover” for it to do the same, follow? They will (follow), follow?

 

They (SBBC) cannot make nor insist that others do this, or that YOU must do this for the kids, however YOU ARE (if you are in any of the alphabet soup organizations listed above) in a position to insist that the district step up to its obligations to kids and I will certainly play as large or as small down to no involvement as you wish AS LONG as BTU, the Teachers Union, the School Board and the School District of Broward County at large under the Superintendent do NOT continue to simply point at each other and stand motionless as children sit homeless in the streets – this is not OK and the public made no better a choice in electing a supposedly “new” group than they did before if this is what you are suggesting – and to be clear, I am NOT blaming the public’s choice but the complete lack of CHOICES the public had to choose between so many do-nothings and pass-it-along alphabet-soup organizations of which I am hoping BATS and BTU will not be a part of.

 

It is all good though because if this is the problem, then it can be addressed as the main thing, now that the real issue is becoming more clear, perhaps? Is everyone equally morally um…. confused or challenged, perhaps, a wee bit… or a lot, maybe – what do you think? I see it as a clear choice to support as an in-house project or set up a task force whose goal is to coordinate with and see to it that the District, 211, the Children’s Services Council and the State of Florida DOE and the various County and City services and NGO’s such as the PTA, the ACLU and NAACP and others can all coordinate – all of this done under the DISTRICTS rubric, not the Unions or BATs but as part of YOUR published RESOLUTIONS and Expectations in the SAME fashion that the NAACP has come out with it’s (upcoming) resolution to support a moratorium against new charter school openings. The Teachers Union can pick any role it wishes in this as long as it chooses role – choosing no role is a choice to be part of the PROBLEM not the Solution and I don’t see this as being the direction any of you I’ve spoken to really want to go nor spent all of your time for to simply become clones of those that you replaced… right?

 

Is anyone at the Board now speaking to the “School Choice” issue – I’ve been trying for 20 minutes to find the link to the agenda on the SBBC website, Mr. Wardani sent me a link but I can’t for the life of me figure out where he found it, I’ve checked all four calendars just now, I think, have to do again I guess – but anyway – there should have been a BAT’s of Color there to ask that no new Charters be approved – is someone there today to do this – I’d planned on checking the agenda and running down there if need be but am still here looking and trying to figure out if there really any “sides” to any of these issues or if everyone (all of you) aren’t just the same side in reality, all equally unable to move and unwilling to put the needs of children first – I’m reasonably sure this isn’t true of BTU, or should I say, as true for BTU as it is for SBBC, but it wouldn’t surprise me either – in fact it kind of fits in just fine with my main point which is that once a community is affected to a pathological degree (i.e.; not hard to detect fyi – children hungry in streets is plenty good enough for a positive diagnosis of community-wide Institutional Complex PTSD – so it makes sense that BTU and SBBC are EQUALLY paralyzed and pathological – not an attack but a fact we must face in order to meet our joint obligations to children, OK?

 

BTU needs a spokesperson on this – you can have your cake and eat it too by NOT having me join either of your organizations but “hiring” me for a penny to MAKE IT HAPPEN – meaning see SBBC take up the mantle along with teachers to look after your charges – any if I say or do anything it’s not on your head – that might work. I refuse to work for more than one penny – but I do insist it be shiny – I like to toss them on the ground so kids can find them and feel like they are going to have a lucky day – can’t beat that kind of payoff in value for just one penny – as long as it’s shiny. Does any of this make sense to you? We ALL One? If you are ALL stuck in the same place – a solution may be for everyone to consider the possibility that in all the incomprehensibly HUGE universe end to end from smallest microbe in the biggest ocean on the farthest planet to each of us ourselves there MAY well be but just ONE SINGLE CONSCIOUSNESS – it is provably as possible as that every consciousness is “separate” as we currently “see” things.

 

There are many ways to envision this “thought-experiment” but the easiest I think is to imagine consciousness a little like electricity that moves atom to atom down a copper wire, picture a conscious awareness “popping” into an a bug, it inhabits the brain and see’s and feels all that a but feels because in that incomprehensibly brief and fast moment that the consciousness pops into the bug, it is the bug – and then it “pops” and flows like an electron in a wire to the next bug, or to you or I and for a trillionth-trillionth-trillionth of a second this same singular consciousness would be you, or I. Other analogies abound, the child toy of suspended ball bearings enables one to pull one back and let it “ploink” and bash into its brethren also suspended in a linear line to “pop” the farthest suspended by string ball-bearing in the line while those in-between hardly move, as if by magic.

 

Another way to conceptualize it is as a multi-dimensional effect where one can move in space and time both perhaps and from our perspective “pop” from one place and time to another just as a 2-D person would see an intersecting 3-D object like a ball as it intersects their world enlarge and shrink against all the laws of conservation of mass and energy as if coming and appearing from nowhere aka; the popular book on the subject of just such a hypothetical 2-d person in the story “Flatlander.” This “we (are) all one consciousness” discussion is a “thought-experiment” I’m asking you to perform and it has a purpose – to enable you and us to “see” new colors, colors we currently have trouble seeing, OK? If you think on it with “mindfulness” in the context of the issues we are seeking to address (homelessness) I believe you will find that you will, through exertion of your will alone, find yourself seeing new “colors” on this issue – and by seeing new colors in this issue I happen to have an excellent explanation by way of an AMAZING fact just learned of by me the other day so my writings of it are rough currently, I apologize, but adequate I hope;

 

On Being and Seeing Blue;

 

The word “BLUE” is mentioned how many times in the Bible would you guess? “RED” is mentioned over a hundred times in the Illiad, “blue” fewer than ten, and in the Bible, not once, and the same goes for early writings and cultures in China, India, it simply didn’t seem to be seen by early peoples, how can this be? “Blue” is missing from all of man’s earliest texts. The Hinda(?) in Namibia(?) were filmed by an ethologist as they tried to identify blue or point to a color that wasn’t red, yellow or green on a screen and the confusion on their faces is palpable (the video is publicly available, will include link when find).

 

Anecdotal evidence indicates that children don’t see the sky as being blue as much as see it as the absence of color at first, and then when pressed will respond “white.” The color blue is exceedingly rare in nature and the writers of our earliest texts may never have seen it (blue eyes were in short supply back then) and hence had no dire need for a word for it – red ochre was the first technologically manufactured colorant used by early peoples around the world, the color blue is almost impossible to make, which is why it was rarely seen while the colors green and yellow became words a bit later on our timeline and were mentioned about ten times each, for example, in the Illiad by Homer.

 

We ALL One Consciousness means vegetarianism makes a lot MORE sense, OK?

 

We ALL One Consciousness means the death penalty makes a lot LESS sense, OK?

 

We ALL One Consciousness means homeless and hungry children makes a lot LESS sense, OK?

 

WE ALL ONE Consciousness means NO MORE HOMELESS CHILDREN, OK?

 

We ALL One Consciousness means that abortion makes a lot LESS sense, OK?

 

We ALL One Consciousness means that a woman’s right to choose makes a lot MORE sense, OK?

 

We ALL One Consciousness means corporal punishment makes a lot LESS sense, OK?

 

We ALL One Consciousness means that “ERRORS are opportunities to TEACH, not PUNISH” makes a lot MORE sense, OK?

 

We ALL One Consciousness means “Why a gun?” not “No guns,” OK?

 

So when I speak of WE ALL ONE, I mean to say we may very well be ALL ONE CONSCIOUSNESS, universe-wide, end-to end and from the beginning to the end of time, should it ever end (hope not).

 

This is far more detailed an explanation of one possible meaning of our all being one and thus is “horse of a different color” from simply saying the cutesy statement, as did the good founding father Benjamin Franklin when he put onto the very first U.S. coin the motto “We Are One.” We may be indeed, and to a degree Ben could hardly have imagined, or did he I wonder? 😉

Massive Underfunding-caused CPTSD Stress in Students, Teachers, Staff & Parents – Follow the (Charter Hedge-fund) Money – FL Hides & Relocates HOMELESS CHILDREN – Censorship of Public Speaker at Aug 12 & 16 School Board of Broward County Meeting

OPT OUT 101: What is it all about?

What is an ACE (adverse childhood experience) and what does it mean for a large number of children to have a high ACE score in a school, community, county, or State?

 

What is the behavioral transmission of neurotoxic stress in schools and communities?

 

One in three children in Florida reports abuse or neglect rising to the degree it is criminally prosecutable – this is NOT OK, OK? The study was undertaken by the school district of Broward County, Florida at a cost of $6 million dollars – we aren’t speaking of a third-world nation – we are talking of the kids right here in Broward.

 

Right now although they appear on no State list and are not tracked or monitored there are HUNDREDS of Broward students that are homeless and without reliable provision of food or the basics of everyday living – we know they exist by using statistics and sampling and precisely because the State knows they exist they have made and are now making every effort humanely possible to see to it that NO ONE knows about them – It is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to KNOW these homeless children are out there, right now in our community – yours and mine and all of our responsibility, OK?

 

This missive is admittedly long and you may think you have more important things to do, work, family, chores, responsibilities – unless you are enroute to an accident as a first responder; you do not – it is your responsibility to SEE PAST THE STATE of Florida’s RUSE, OK? They are worried about being served with the largest class action Complex PTSD lawsuit in history based on the stress the State of Florida has wrought caused by greed, fraud and mismanagement orchestrated to take advantage of the weakest of us across the board; the elderly, infirm, special needs, the poor, powerless, and women and children.

Ever held a real arrowhead from thousands of years ago, or a fossil dinosaur tooth millions of years old, or a real meteorite from outer space billions of years old? Ever read a real letter hand-written by Hellen Keller, the first blind and deaf woman to learn to speak and write? Wonder why I’m asking? Do you remember if you had shelves in your classrooms when you went to school? We’ll come back to all this in a bit later.

 

Since 2012 it is a network of parents, grandparents, students, educators and community members fighting for Florida’s public schools.

 

If you aren’t Opting-Out… you’re Opting-In, and that is not OK, OK?

 

“OPT OUT” has been the ONLY action to hold the attention of education policy makers and legislators – If you don’t advocate for your child, who will? Enough is enough!

 

What is “check-box empathy? What does the phrase, “check-box culture” mean? What is inhumane about testing and a testing mentality, if anything? When did testing become the new teaching, like orange became the new black? Read-on.

 

WHERE ON WHAT TEST is there a CHECK-OFF-BOX that covers and includes things like a little girl saying “Is that what ‘homeless’ means, Mommy?” This is said as she and her Mom pull up to the intake shelter that is full, as it always is, and not a place Mom would go even if it weren’t full.  Mom gets a sinking feeling in her stomach, as she realized the damage is done, there’s no erasing her daughters fears now, no putting the car in reverse to erase the whole experience and knowledge of what “HOMELESS” means in Florida, U.S.A. – there are people out front, sleeping and passed out on the grass under the tree’s. It is in an industrial looking area, far away from homes and not safe looking. Her daughter has just made a life-long memory and there is nothing to be done about it – Mom’s stomach knots at the thought. The little voice has a falter to it – not tittery, like when watching a scary part of a Disney movie though, and not feigned in mock fear, the little voice drops off at the end, instead of rising in a falsetto as in a question towards the end as when in anticipation of a response – although just a child, she knows Mom has no answer to her fears – Mom notices this too, her stomach cannot tighten any more, it is a solid thing in her gut now, and she begins to tear-up, so she turns her face hoping her little girl won’t see, but she can’t speak, not without giving herself away because she knows all that would come out would be a croaking whimper so she clenches her jaw, closes her eyelids tight as she faces away as if looking at something, and holds her breath – waiting for the moment, all of it, to pass. I’d spoken to all of the dozen-plus numbers that 211 reads-off to people that call in, starting about 2 weeks before this mom was evicted – she and I were told from some places they’d be able to help but not until after she was evicted. We called all of them again after she was evicted – she had friends that for a little bit of financial help could take in her three children – a visiting 19 year old, also a relative, was more or less on her own I think, but still under this mom’s wing too. The littlest is the one written of above as we visited the Pompano intake center – the person running it could not have been nicer nor more sincere in sharing the absurdity of it all and his helplessness to do anything about it and no, he didn’t mind saying, there really wasn’t anyplace to turn despite all the pom-pom cheerleading on school boards and in legislatures saying otherwise.

 

WHERE ON WHAT TEST is there a CHECK-OFF-BOX for “adequately meeting the minimum needs of our communities children?”  Who has marked it with a great big CHECK that everything is A-OK when it is not?

 

WHOSE needs are being met when the school board, city leaders and State legislature  all have been made aware of the crisis in our community and others by myself and many others for months now and the our local school board of Broward counties response, as with literally every single other issue ever raised is “who, not us” and “do not listen to these people, what they say is wrong, everything is really fine” after we speak and then has staff arrange for a dog-and-pony-show mini-parade for the next board meeting to demonstrate and show that there is no “challenge” (ie; problem to the common person) here. This is school-board-speak if you don’t know the lingo; our superintendent like many others around the nation has been trained by the Broad Charter School Foundation to say this to lay-people so as to not needlessly confuse our little minds, in lieu of the negative sounding word, “problem.” When the superintendent mouths his words of praise for himself and the district in describing how these “challenges” all are being dealt with, no worry, his voice is strong, clear, and confident – as are other board members anxious to point out how wonderful we do in caring for our children in Broward schools. It has none of the lilting insecure fear of what may come that was so clearly heard in the little girls voice. Next week there will be a stand-in voicing praise for the districts successful, even exemplary performance in carrying for its indigent children, and no one will have to sink to having to praise themselves, it will all be arranged to be done for them by some group or another called in to do the job for them – it is more seemly that way.

 

The dissonance between the tones in the two voices, the little girls and superintendents, is deafening.

 

The dissonance between the words, the reality, and the lack of empathy and sincerity makes the blood boil hot.

 

WHOSE needs are met and looked after when the State of Florida and local authorities deny the faces they scrub out when affirmatively filling in the little check-off-box that says “adequately meets minimum needs of children?” Did the school board of Broward County know as it filled in the little square box on these many tests for heart and righteousness that there was a little girls face under there? Whose needs are met when denial is passed around like an after dinner aperitif after every public speaker voices a suggestion or criticism? Did it not see the many little girls faces, as they penciled in the last bit and made them “disappear” with but a few casual statements spoken after every public speaker to be sure the public knew not to listen to these common-folk? Rest assured everyone, is the message at each board meeting, the board and district have filled in the box just-right and no, of course not, there were no little girls faces scrubbed-out of existence and made invisible by their actions, of course not, all is well – who doesn’t love little girls, after all – Right? Who indeed, one has to wonder.

 

WHOSE needs are met when the school board insists all is well – not the need of any of the little girls written of in this rambling diatribe, surely, so whose needs are being met, exactly? If one comments as a public speaker that the scientific data says SRO’s (police trained to shoot to kill) in schools lead to more behavior problems, not fewer, then like an autonomic response of being hit in the knee with a hammer, up comes the foot just as out come the pencils again to check-off all the boxes saying all is well with having armed people in our schools that by their mere presence completely disempower both teachers and administration in lieu of the State’s prison system, in one fell swoop, or should one say stroke, of the pencil. Military trained to shoot to kill when confronted in an “us or them” situation, no problem with that, right? Forget the actual facts and statistics on the matter, forget the public cries of “foul” at every single board meeting, that’s what the public does, it’s to be expected, not a problem, not even a “challenge,” (i.e.; problem) really since this is just that thing the public always does (complain about things the district is really doing a wonderful excellent job at) at board meetings; Nothing here to worry about, right?  I mean, how many of us are little girls? None of us have anything to worry about, why make a fuss? Yup.

 

WHOSE needs are being met when the school board and district superintendent say everything is A-OK and that there is food and shelter for moms and children, of course, and that to say otherwise is wrong and irresponsible? Whose needs? Is it the two little girls, one stroller between them now that had spent a night in a roach-infested hotel room and slept under a bus before that? Whose needs? Whose needs are met when the little box next to “meet the minimum needs of students and children” is checked-off by the school district and city leaders of Broward county, one and all? Whose needs? Who benefits; Is it the State of Florida, like the testing companies peddling tests in schools, seeking a stamp of approval when we fill-in the “all is well here, no need to look here” check-off-box? Of course there is no real test or box to be filled-in for such things, not externally anyway – but here’s the concern – have we so incorporated a checked-off all-is-well-and-done mentality into ourselves, our culture and psyche after growing up with this testing mania for decades over multiple generational that we literally interact, deal-with and see the world by employing a checkbox-morality and checkbox-lifestyle without even realizing it? Do the peace officers (police), social workers, school board members and superintendents all  employ internal checkboxes now, checkboxes we internally create that align with the outside worlds minimal and below-minimum expectations, in the exact same fashion we deal with school-tests?

 

On the way to the board meeting last August 16th I passed a young couple with two young kids in strollers all loaded up with stuff and something seemed odd as I passed so I turned around. They were stopped when I pulled up and the man came over and asked for help saying the wheel on their stroller had just broken a few seconds before, as I was turning around apparently, and they were worried about making it to the bus station by noon, still a ways away, especially with a broken stroller. I drove them to the bus and had a few moments to chat with them in the car. She was from here in Broward, they’d been on the street for 3 weeks through the worst heat of the summer and mentioned sleeping under a bus one night, and another night in a Motel 6(?) at the Broward Blvd & I-95 that had so many roaches they called the health department but were told they were too busy and couldn’t do anything. I asked if she’d ever heard of 211, had she? She said she’d made many calls to 211 and many more calls to places which offered no help, wasting time and adding to her frustration and sense of helplessness. They eventually came across an organization called Life-Net which provided the mom and two kids a $500 bus trip to her grandmothers in North Carolina – I’ve seen this process in action before – unmarked white vans and police see the poor as potential informants to hunt down terrorists – you really can’t make this kind of stuff up, that is where the budget originates. After making such a “weird” statement as this, let me digress briefly to elaborate;

I once helped a half-naked bruised very young woman trying to find some food and shelter and she was directed to an “intake” location in Fort Lauderdale for help – we were in Deerfield Beach, fyi. We asked two police officers on motorbikes about how to get there, having no map or GPS, and if they knew of anyplace closer to find food and shelter, could they help? No, they had not a clue – and didn’t quite get I don’t think why we thought they would know such things in the first place, I mean, what did they look like, social workers? These were proud, manly Hunters of people, not Helpers of people, and were a bit indignant that anyone could not see this inasmuch as I was (I’m guessing) visibly upset at their lack of knowledge, or caring. I kind of get their point, I mean, just look at them, all bristling in their fine armament and regalia, how could I or anyone possibly mistake them for anything other than the magnificent on-the-prowl hunters they obviously felt themselves to be, what was wrong with us? If you are a policeman that is a peace officer to the core and consider your main job to be helping and to be humanitarian and empathetic , I got your back – if you are a clueless hunter  out to make the world right for good outstanding people like yourself – not so much, you are a pretender and more dangerous to a civil society than any terrorist could ever hope to be.

 

After roughly an hour and a half of driving around the young woman-girl finally found the place she’d been directed at the pay phone I first saw her, crying. Clearly there would have never been any way possible for the girl to have made it there on her own.  There was a large group of people sitting and waiting; No food, no shelter – just getting signed in for promised food the following day apparently, it didn’t make sense at the time. Now I know what was up. The unmarked white vans (fyi, hundreds of these vans sit in storage unused when purchased to bolster the failing auto maker).  God-forbid the public might think anyone cared for the homeless and hungry, better to feed them, if you do, in secret, right? These (seriously creepy) white unmarked vans do “intake” at various semi-secret locations around town which you have to call a semi-secret phone number to find are that way so no one will know they are being fed – you wouldn’t want more of “them” to hear about it and everyone come – and the point wasn’t feeding or sheltering them, it was the intake process to make sure they weren’t possible terrorists and so they could be used as part of an information pipeline and most importantly so one could point to numbers on a sheet and that some bureaucrat could hand out an award for later – yes I know all of this sounds fantastical and absurd, using the poor as pigeons and stoolies but it wasn’t my bright-idea, I’m just telling you about it. I’m a bit old and creepy looking to be hanging around with young beaten-up girls, in my opinion, and noted at the time this bothered no one in the least – my asking questions of everyone around really got some attention though. I clearly did not know my “place,” which their indignant attitude made quite clear. The officers there did not like my poking around so we spoke and eventually determined that the young woman would, surprise-surprise, be given bus fare to Arkansas or someplace (sound familiar?) – I’d just left the house for a quick errand and had nothing on me so I know the young woman hadn’t eaten in quite some time by then, I don’t think she got any food that night, but she got bus fare out of town after I made a fuss, for all it was worth. We were leaving the place before the offer of bus fare was made I should add, I think they were afraid I was going to make a stink about all I’d seen, and I was – I’d like to think the offer was made to help her – but not likely, they’d have offered before we were already pulling away – someone’s boss got nervous at someone poking around and wanted to nullify any future “challenges” (ie; problems to common-folk) as our superintendent’s all as one here in Florida have  taught to say.

 

So this is the background to my hearing now about this young families story I’d happened to see as I drove to the board meeting to speak yet again (I did not then know that as happens often with public speakers in Broward, I’d been removed surreptitiously from the roster after having been told I was on it, something that happens so frequently we joke about it and many record their calls, although when one complains it does nothing, even with the tapes since it is always just a clerical error). This is why, as we are driving to the bus station, that instead of leaving the broken stroller on the sidewalk when I picked them up, I brought it and the fallen off wheel with us in my truck – figuring enough is enough – I’m tired of being told about non-existent “wrap-around” services and people handing out T-shirts and flags as awards to each other at the next board meeting plus banquets and awards ceremonies where everyone dresses up and feels absolutely wonderful about themselves – enough is enough and I’ll have the stroller at least as a kind of incontrovertible evidence. At the last three board meetings after myself and others speaking far more powerfully than I to the issues of child homelessness issues the board as one voice made it clear to any listeners and the public at large that every word of ours was nonsense – quite literally said so in no uncertain terms – so this time I’d bring this broken stroller as a solid prop, not the abstraction of some hypothetical homeless children, hoping this would sway these people that refuse to see truth. I did not then know, of course, they’d already fixed that and more, was denied the ability to bring the broken kid-stroller into the meeting – and when I tried just bringing the lightweight plastic wheel that had broken off, with soft rubber and no edges (it being round) was also refused – no you can’t speak, no you can’t bring a little wheel off of a kids stroller into a professional meeting where serious matters are discussed – No, no, no!

 

TESTING IS THE NEW TEACHING, All hail the Check-box, Corporate Testing is King!

 

We’ve all been raised on check-boxes; we’re a check-box nation by temperament, philosophy and culture it seems. We are ruled by checkboxes we internally create, how do we look, how do we feel, are we too fat, too thin; and the ones peddled by schools on the nearest street-corner like an illicit drug one can’t quite get enough of even though you know it isn’t really a healthy thing to be using all the time? Keep in mind that TESTS were NOT originally seen as the problem – Err, I mean “challenge.” Originally TESTS were seen as the SOLUTION to WHY kids weren’t learning in school, not the CAUSE. No one seems to remember this, or prefer not to, since the world is so much simpler if one spares oneself this teensy little fact. Fact; tests were the go-to solution in order to be able to better identify “bad” teachers and to identify kids burdened with “bad” families (ie; a single parent). Fact; Schools were failing nationwide, coast to coast, regardless of teaching curriculum, teaching philosophy, or spending per pupil. All schools have been declining in their ability to produce kids that are educated for decades going well back into the 1970’s and WAY before TESTING BECAME THE NEW TEACHING.

 

Check-box empathy, check-box culture, an inhumane testing mentality, testing replacing teaching; what does it all mean? It means that out of roughly 250 schools in Broward county that only FIVE schools can say that more than half of them are able to PASS ALL SIX CORE SUBJECTS – meaning that if you attend any of the other 245 schools that less than half of you can pass all six subjects at grade level at graduation.  If this sounds untrue, preposterous, and surreal – so-sorry, all-true. Yup.  Make no doubt, if things were bad before when the entire nation tried to teach kids and couldn’t, things have gotten much worse hard as that is to believe, now that everyone essentially gave up on teaching altogether in lieu of simply testing instead of teaching. So in light of all this, given that testing is and never was the cause of it all, and is just the straw that made the camels broken-back visible – why aren’t kids learning in our schools – really? Fact; There has to be reason. There is.

 

One must be a “LEAN-FORWARD” and not a “LEAN-BACK” type of person and teacher for teaching to work. To “lean-forward” is to be a creative pro-active individual and to “lean-back” is to be dogmatic and reactive.  Question; What exactly does this mean?

 

WHOSE needs are being met, whose challenges (i.e.; problems) are being solved when we play politics as moms and kids are told by the State of Florida that someone will call, if there is a number to call back to, in two weeks or so – I heard it myself. Not that anyone does call, they don’t, this too is a lie. Has anyone ever met a child that can go two weeks without food or shelter? Is this something children do that few of us know about? It is a SURE THING the problem will have fixed itself after a couple of weeks is EXACLTY how the State of Florida apparently see’s the matter, they’ll certainly have fixed “their” problem as they see it – which problem isn’t all the kids and moms in need of services as much as seeing to it that no one notices or complains of them, right?

 

WHY SHOULD A SCHOOL DISTRICT CARE ABOUT WHETHER KIDS ARE HUNGRY AND HOMELESS – IT ISN’T THEIR JOB, RIGHT?

 

WHAT DOES EDUCATION HAVE TO DO WITH ANYTHING, OR SCHOOLS, TEACHERS, SUPERINTENDENTS AND SCHOOL BOARDS FOR THAT MATTER?

 

WHOSE NEEDS ARE BEING MET WHEN WE DENY FOOD AND SHELTER TO CHILDREN?

 

How did we let things come to this sad deplorable state of affairs? Did Too Many Bad Teachers *really* KILL Public Education, or did the deep-south segregationist lobby which is synonymous with Big-Old-Boys-style Big-Company, Chicago-Style Institutional Complex PTSD politicking kill public education? What of our schools and children here in Broward, FL.? What does it mean to be “ACTIVATED” or “INACTIVATED?” What does it mean to “LEAN FORWARD” versus “AWAY-FROM?” What determines this difference?

 

Teaching Stopped Working in the 1970’s – What Happened?

 

What happens when you have an arrowhead, meteorite, and extinct giant porpoise jawbone section in your pocket? What happens if you show one of these – to a teacher and child? Can you think of any ways to tell how to separate the “Lean-Forward” from “Lean-Back” types of folk? Show a child sitting with other children at a table and teachers sitting with other teachers at a table cool fossils and artifacts from a local Florida creek, such as a locally found ARROWHEAD – watch; do they as one all move forward to see better? Does the closest reach out for it? Are all around happy and smiling – Or the opposite? Are any pulling away while making scrunchy-faces? This is the secret hiding in the middle of it all as to why TEACHING either does, or doesn’t work – it’s that simple. It’s biology. Biology is culture; culture is biology, people with high ACE scores in high ACE-scoring communities and in workplaces suffering Institutional Complex PTSD who are “activated” to be on high-alert all the time will pull back, it’s science.

 

What is a spectrum disorder? – Answer – it means we are all along the line or spectrum somewhere, everyone.

 

HUNGRY CHILDREN, ANOREXIA and the POWER of BIOLOGY and SOCIETAL DENIAL: KILLING IS AS KILLING DOES.

 

The lesson in all this is that to fix this all really may require FAITH as much or more than logic, or science and substantiating data and studies alone because our brains are perfectly adapted – not damaged – to our environment much like an ANOREXIC whose every activated cell in their body is also PERFECTLY-adapted to THIS SAME ENVIRONMENT and tells them to BATTEN (secure, tighten) the HATCHES and prepare for a long haul to get through the dangerous waters ahead, Half-Rations and Full-Speed Ahead is the biological strategy evolved over millennia. Alas, just as doctors kill the poor anorexic with their good-intentions, so too the educator kills the learning of the student, if not the student themselves as with the poor anorexics killed slowly by well-meaning doctors following their CHECK-BOXES telling them to close their eyes to the pleas of their patients and to OPEN ALL HATCHES and DOUBLE the Rations till the ship sinks at which point it is the ship found to be faulty from the start, as evidenced by it’s failing to respond to all the properly-checked-off boxes, right?

 

WHY faith? For all these reasons we must trust both Faith and Logic – faith in those that say you can trust in science and logic. Why faith? Many, perhaps most, persons physically may be unable to see some things the same way others do, like having color blindness, no amount of talking will turn red into green or vice versa, it cannot be done. If one has a large number of adverse childhood experiences, ACE’s, and is in a community suffering from societal stress exemplified by Complex PTSD in individuals and Institutional CPTSD in key public and private organizations – then one is adapted to this as ones environment. We are the most social animals on the planet, not even ants cooperate in the numbers we do. Behaviorally transmitted neurotoxic stress affects people in social groups collectively; this means protective services, child care, schools, hospitals, hospices, VA systems, prisons, all of them as one. Within affected communities peoples brains process information differently, their brains are optimized to be best-adapted to an environment of others like them, suited for survival in an environment of scarcity and competition, not one of abundance and cooperation.

 

WHY faith? People who see red as green due to colorblindness aren’t bad, wrong or broken – they see things differently because of biology, not politics or philosophy and the same applies when one see’s a glass as one-half full or empty and certain statement such as “justice applied against kids is immoral because errors are opportunities to learn” – Even simple statements such as this, like basic colors can be seen differently or not seen at all and can be invisible to some and not others. When one’s mind is stressed one is activated and re-active to unexpected stimuli (a lean-back mentality expects scarcity and competition) which means that some issues cannot be understood or seen in the same way an unstressed, creative and pro-active (a lean-forward mind expects abundance and cooperation) mind does – because of this fundamental difference it is not surprising to find frequent disagreement between people utilizing the two types of minds employing two different strategies and ways of perceiving and interacting with the world and each other. It is an unrealistic expectation that the two types of people, some seeing the glass as half-full and some seeing the same glass as half-empty, can ever see things the same however motivated, sincere, educated, articulate, and skilled at communication they may be because it is a physical issue, not a philosophical issue.

 

WHY faith? It may not be possible for a glass-half-full brain to see the totality of what a positive future can hold. This is not a defect for either type of brain, to be half-full or half-empty; the half-empty brain is evolved to be perfect for the environment we really live in in our schools, work and communities; which are all too often stressful, unpredictably dangerous and resource starved. So here we are, absolutely “perfect” for our environment the way it really is, not how we want it to be, so what’s the problem (ie; “challenge” for the Broad Foundation-folk)? We are not talking after all of a defect. The glass half full brain is evolved to be perfect for the current reality in our homes, schools, and communities – perfect but seeking to Rise Above the limitations of Our Biology to achieve the impossible on FAITH, largely, for those with a glass half-empty mind-set whereas Science and Logic will suffice for those with a glass half-full mentality and perspective.

 

WHY faith? It is a hope that both types of minds, all of us as one can move forward with faith and conviction that humankinds better nature IS our nature – innate goodness is us – is what a human is, innately. Some persons and issues are invisible to others not due to mean spiritedness or defect but of a true honest evolutionarily optimized and PERFECT for our competitive, resource deprived, stressful, inhumane, disconnected from our humanity, environment as it currently really is, not as we wish it to be; one of infinite abundance and cooperation.

 

So this is why TEACHING either does, or doesn’t work – it’s this simple. It’s biology. Biology is culture; culture is biology, people with high ACE scores in high ACE-scoring communities and in workplaces suffering Institutional Complex PTSD who are “activated” to be on high-alert all the time will pull back, it’s science and for those pulling-back from believing this, it must be taken on FAITH alone – it’s science.

 

What is a spectrum disorder? – Answer – it means when lines are drawn to show differences between people the line shouldn’t be seen and drawn as a fence-line between people but rather to show that we are all, every one of us, on the same line or spectrum somewhere along its length, everyone, and in this fundamental way we truly are all one, OK?

 

I once had my 7th grade science class memorize a poem by a 17th century poet named William Blake. They and their parents were perplexed but I insisted they have “faith” in me. Can you see the connection and why I feel their faith was well directed – why I had a science class memorize these particular lines of poetry? I’ll give you a hint; they did not have a clue, literally, what “science” meant or is or does – not the least idea. How this happens in our schools is a story for later – for now, give the following a reading and see if you see how this poem exemplifies what science is, can you see it? They did.

 

AUGURIES (foretelling’s) OF INNOCENSE (child-like seeing of things)

 

To see the world in a grain of sand,

 

and a Heaven in a wildflower,

 

Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,

 

and eternity in an hour.

 

 

WHY KIDS CAN’T LEARN: Massive UNDERFUNDING and DISRESPECT plus TESTING instead of TEACHING leading to STRESS and Institutionalized Complex PTSD in District Staff, Teachers, Students, and Parents ALL as One! Does anyone doubt that this has not affected teaching and learning both, of course it has – we’ve all been affected. All as one should seek to file a class-action lawsuit patterned on the $1,000,000,000 (billion) lawsuit recently won the the city of Compton, CA, but for all of Florida and for much, much more in damages.

 

– THE NEEDS OF CHILDREN FOR A SAFE SANCTUARY IN THEIR SCHOOLS IS NOT BEING MET

 

– ONE IN THREE children is abused or neglected and this IS NOT OK, OK?

 

– Any Justice Applied against Kids is an Immoral Injustice against Humanity, OK?

 

– Error is an Opportunity to Learn, Not an Opportunity to Punish or Be Punished, OK?

 

– To train the dog, horse, or child to war is be the lowest form of life imaginable, OK?

 

We are accustomed to scarcity and competition, it is a way of life and for those that thrive in this environment, and many do, it is simply the way the world is and as we all know, the world is what it is and cannot be changed, right? NO! WRONG – if faith is needed, then find faith, but we cannot continue on this path any longer. It is time. It is time we grow up and take responsibility for our world and children, we can do it, we are ready, there is no lack of resources, just a lack of will and fear of the unknown future of abundance and cooperation ahead of us, OK?

 

How sad that real suggestions to fix these “challenges” and problems are heard and seen as jokes by our leaders, sad for them, sad for us, sad especially for children. I suggested at a board meeting that the problem of books being so large and heavy has a simple solution – for all books above a certain size and weight to be made into a class Art project and made into TWO books, all in ONE DAY, done! Further, doing this in just one school district anywhere would likely resound across the country and spur other such actions so that by next year, surprise, the textbook manufacturers will be providing two smaller books, a hitherto impossibility, to hear them tell it now. Isn’t the joke really on each of us as we stand around joking about comically outsized books and our children’s accompanying back problems? Isn’t the joke on us since even worse than the physical hardship, there is the mental hardship endured by our children in how daunting such huge tomes must be for a new little learner?

 

WOW! Great Read! WOW! Follow the MONEY – http://www.orlandosentinel.com/opinion/os-ed-government-schools-argument-081616-20160816-story.html

 

Worldwide spending on tobacco products > $300 billion/year – Settlement to avoid bankruptcy, a paltry $200 billion spread out over 25 years. Spending on preventable diseases in CA alone exceeds $20 billion per year. Kathleen Oropeza, Sun Sentinel; “Sadly, this is about money and power, not what’s best for our children. It’s a move to set traditional district public schools apart from so-called “public for-profit charter schools.” States spend $800 billion on public education annually, $19 billion in Florida. Ever since the unsecured loan/credit default fiasco of 2008, privatizers have been drooling over that evergreen pile of taxpayer cash spent on public schools. They don’t see this money as a shared community investment in our children. It’s just a glorious pot of gold ripe for private profit, not a public asset that belongs to us.

Every hedge fund has a charter school “investment” opportunity sector. Wealthy foreigners can buy citizenship for themselves and their families in exchange for investing in charter-school development. The problem is that this money transfer isn’t happening fast enough, meaning the public-school systems aren’t dissolving as planned.
It’s not for lack of trying. Politicians, whipped by lobbyists, have done their best to ratchet up the misery. In Florida they’ve defunded public schools by $4 billion, used high-stakes tests to harm teachers and hurt kids, diverted billions to fund vouchers for private religious schools and aggressively given public-school tax dollars to for-profit charter schools that often fail. Predictably, vendors, former bureaucrats, politicians and lobbyists have grown rich from the enterprise.”
