Being with them and for them...

Working with special people is really special.  Not only it brings fulfillment but happiness 
unmeasured and deep.  The special responses of special people are without conditions and 
pretentions.  They donot judge your looks instead they see you as you are.  They treat you 
so special that you felt accepted as you are.  They have their moments of difficulties but it is
nothing compared to their moments of happiness and nurturing care and attentions towards
you and the rest of their world.  They might seem so odd if not perflexing but they are well-
defined by their specific needs not want.  They are constantly nourishing and empathic but
simplicity is their greatest gift...being with them and for them fulfilled and answered so many
of my queries and worries, I found myself happy and contented being with them and for them !

Exploiting the helpless and the poor

   A famous statement which states, There is no exploitation if the intended victim
refused to be a victim or refuse to be exploited. Prior to the current economic hardship/difficulties in the U.S.A many people are exploited not because they are helpless victims- they are exploited because they allow themselves to be exploited. Many people in America are better off in comparison to people from South America or Africa. People in America have greater opportunities and privileges. The exception is that if you are very poor in America you will be homeless ! Poverty in America is extreme and cruel.
   Living in America for almost twenty years, I have witnessed how people allowed themselves to be exploited because of "convenience" and materialism.  Idealism in America (USA) is weaken because of crass materialism and choices made by many people born in America. Many people born in America are individualist and reactionary.  A few others are fighting back...thanks to the Labor Union and "idealist lawyers" who supports their pitiful plight. We are exploited because we allow others to  exploit us ! Stand up and unite poor people of America. You will lose nothing except the shackle and misery of poverty !
    America will experience the extreme poverty of other developing countries in the near future unless the people start asserting not only their rights but their humanity as well.

Nourishments for Our Mind

                                                  WE, The People
                How can we be positive about things when we are lying to ourselves ? The point is ...working in human services for years I have realized I have been exploited by the very people that leads and professed to "be good".

            With the current economic conditions we have a favotite escape goat...
the USA and its Government. We need to blame someone to feel good about
ourselves... and our miserable plight ?

              No. We donot know poverty in this country; Not yet.  We are getting
there, in fifty to a hundred years if we sit...whine and do nothing to change things
including ourselves.

             Industry and really hard work plays a major role in an authentic
meritocratic society. USA is not there yet. It is the fault of President Obama and
his liberal cohorts.  There we go again.   Blaming others in particular, our
Government.  Perhaps, by now you are examining yourself if you are part of the
problem or the solution ?   Will it help if we cast our votes for  someone we
believe can change things ? I donot know.  Do you ? Is it late ? Try going back
to history not only American History but the Humankind and their story.

               A leader can only be effective with the people that believes that they
can  change things together.  Will Obama be the right person to vote and
support and continue his legacy of YES, We can ! I am not a democrat but I voted
for President Obama in the last election.  Recently, I was getting impatient because
the President failed my expectations.  I thought... He is a man not SUPERMAN !
Will he win again because I will vote for him ? Maybe.  If there is a Hispanic
running against him will you vote against President Obama ? If there an Asian
running against President Obama, will you vote in favor of the Asian candidate ?
Remember, they are all people.  People change. People succumb to pressures.
People has breaking points.  People are fallible.  People eat. People needs rest and
sleep.  People are people.

Labeling others.........

  Stereotypes...labeling others. B.Disraeli once said, " To be conscious that you are ignorant is a great step to knowledge."  I am guilty of labeling are you all ! We live in a world regardless of your country or etnic origin ignorant of the fact we are so ignorant about other people.So we give them labels like "Nigger","Chink", Commies, "Republicans",......and many others.
Do you feel cruelty,inhumanity and/or just shameless, guiltless when you label people ?

Since 1983

  I started in the early 1980's searching and asking questions about the nature of people and its impact to societal issues like socio-economic inequalities in particular poverty among the masses in democratic and open societies.As a student activist and leader I have experience the implication of status quo in the school environment and encompassing communities and societies in general.I thought the school was a place to educate myself in understanding societal issues that affects everyone in my community and nation as a whole.
  I started a self-funded research project to reinforce and sustain my arguments if not recommendations in minimizing if not eradicating socio- economic inequalities without resorting to violence.The pen after all is still mightier than the the 21st century technology makes almost everything transparent and "truthful" ? In honor of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom and justice for all born or unborn...................................
