Back to school.

Back-To-School-Jokes-8

I am going to be starting classes again on Thursday. I miss classes and learning at Tyler college even when it IS a summer holiday.  When your a little kid you can’t wait for a three day weekend, Winter Break, or summer time.  However, when you get older you can’t wait to have the privilege of learning and advancing your career.  Funny how the punishments of youth become the treats of adulthood.  Saying “go to bed early”, “you get extra vegetables”, and “you have to go to three more classes” seems like a joy as you get older as it all made you sad as a kid.


No pay.

Facebook Post of the Week:

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there, the job you work 24-7, all your life, for no money pay at all. Love is the better pay.

4 You, Christopher Colton Ingersoll, Chris Rosenbaum and Jane Perez

In a culture that puts a dollar value on everything, it is important to remember some of the best jobs don’t pay at all. And happy mother’s day to all you Mr. Moms too, I respect your work as well. As a single mom I have had to be both mom and dad to my daughter. Which is extra hard because my mother’s father died in WWII when she was a kid, and my father was killed in the Army due to war too, so I have had very few examples to go on for parents. It is that much more amazing that my daughter is in honors classes, and made all A and B grades this year in school.

Turn for better.

Thanks for the friends and family who have helped my life take a full turn for the better. I passed all my college tests with A grades. At long last I can sleep more than 2 hours a night.

Andrea Blood Donate 1 (1)

After I passed the in depth anti-drug and germ tests to blood donate, I will donate blood for 2 months in March and April in Richmond, VA. I just donated last Friday. No I don’t show the pictures of this to point out my “veins look all cutie” like one guy on my Facebook once commented. I show the photos because I want to show in a passive way they tested me for ALL the drugs you can get high off of, and I was NOT on any of them. If I have a friend who jokes about that too much with me, I get a bit antsy and want to do something that leaves a paper trail as it proves them wrong.


Only one.

Funny Facebook Post of the Week:

I passed all of my college night school midterm exams with good grades. Now if I could only get a tiny bit of social life when at it!  School is filled with people, and yet it keeps you so busy you don’t always have time to really talk to them.

Going to Petersburg or Fort Lee is a big NOPE for me. I do not accidentally avoid these places like the plague.

Andrea E. Menzies There is NO changing my thinking on this issue. I gave them a chance and they failed ultra-bitterly to be halfway civil. You are more likely to get a cat into water.

Andrea E. Menzies On a related note I have mace and knives I keep for self defense in my purse. Anyone trying to drag me to the Petersburg or Fort Lee area will be sliced in the eye. There are strange stories that I liked living there and dealing with military people.  I completely hated it with every ounce of my soul, and I am fully sick of getting email about it at this point.

 


Back to school.

A funny Facebook post of the week.

I love my new Monday-Wednesday Tyler college night school classes, but getting the books will be hard to do this week.  In state residency for college in Virginia was not easy to get this year.  Now I have it and am at long last able to go to more classes.  In theory school is about a smart brain, hard work, and focus. Sadly in the USA it is often about having money for fees, books, and gas back and fourth from campus.

Christopher Colton Ingersoll Ever since the textbook people sued Kinko’s for making ‘course packets’ it’s been amazing how much money they rake in. The new digital textbooks are even worse; same price but they give you a password that expires after a year so you can’t even keep it

What is at risk now?

free-college-joke-1

     It is pretty hard not to notice that massive expense in healthcare and education in America is crippling normal people’s lives.  If the United States had even a tiny amount more sympathy for a socialized view of politics quality of life could improve .  I myself in the last ten years of my life have been tortured due to lack of healthcare and education funding, and I don’t come from one of the least educated families in the nation. In the United States the words “Communism” “Socialism” have gained dirty word status.  Saying them sometimes holds a feel in it’s social norm like shouting the “F” word in a library. However, this has been a recent invention of very wealthy corporate advertising agencies. As college students are feeling the burn of very expensive college classes this week the fight has become more real to my life.  The shadow of the Lavender Scare and the legacy of McCarthy Era trials has caused the United States to allow itself to become brain washed against understanding even modest communist or socialist views.

     Once Medicare, Medicaid, Unemployment benefits, female voting, 40 hour weeks, union employment, and Social Security were all considered forms of “radical communism” by the government.  Now they are part of politics as usual.  The benefits are under attack by right wing advocates more than ever before this year. What is at risk now? This is from Webster dictionary online definition of Socialism: extensive state regulation, with limited state ownership, has been employed by democratically elected governments (as in Sweden and Denmark) in the belief that it produces a fair distribution of income without impairing “economic growth.”https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/socialism

     The United States would have free healthcare and higher education if it allowed for limited state ownership seen in elected governments like Sweden and Denmark.  A percent of people with top income in the United States would have a few less dollars if taxed, people without healthcare suffer death. Arguments that long waits accompany healthcare under socialism do not stand, but are shot down with the reality that without a list to be on death is the only other alternative. Many other countries with a far lower income in comparison to the United States already have socialized medicine and education.  “The fact that the US isn’t among the countries with universal healthcare and free college has been a topic of many heated political debates and complaints, especially among the Millennials faced with the prospect of repaying their student loans well into their adulthood. If they have a misfortune of getting hit with a major hospital bill as well, declaring a bankruptcy is often the only solution.” Insidermonkey.com states in it’s blog entry “11 countries with universal healthcare and free college” listing the countries as Sri Lanka, Brazil, Argentina, Luxembourg, Spain, Germany, Greece, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, and Norway declaring much of Europe a bastion of Universal Healthcare.  I have visited France, Spain, and Germany in my youth.  I have noticed people are not starving to death and miserable in the regions.  Yet the United States has the widespread public opinion that communist or socialist thought regarding healthcare or education must cause pain and sorrow.  When did this start?  

     On February 9, 1950 the US Senator Joseph McCarthy asserted that he had a list of over 50 communist party spy ring members who had infiltrated the State Department. Wealthy elite corporations gave massive advertising funding to foster mass media obsession with communist witch hunts.  Heavy coverage in Television and the newspapers followed this act. The phrase “fag” “fairy” and many other homosexual derogatory terms were heavily recorded in audio of his cross examination of suspected communists. In the groundbreaking novel The Lavender Scare: The Cold War Persecution of Gays and Lesbians in the Federal Government. Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2004. By David K. Johnson the depth of the anti-heterosexual oppression clearly represented in the McCarthy hearings is fully explored.  McCarthy asserts that gays and bisexuals, fearing exposure for their personal preferences could be blackmailed into revealing national secrets.  Therefore everyone even suspected of communism or homosexuality should be purged from all government jobs and blacklisted from most normal work. All people not living a heterosexual love life exclusively for breeding purposes were considered criminal. The corporate funded mass media supported him and this theory. After this point the suicide of Wyoming Senator Lester C. Hunt made the McCarthy’s support and popularity fade. On December 2, 1954, the Senate voted to censure Senator McCarthy by a vote of 67–22, making him one of the few senators ever to be disciplined by censure. Unfortunately the damage was done, and his media frenzied with countless corporate sponsored movies demonizing cartoonish communist supervillians, ironed a negative view of communist and socialist thought into public opinion.

We have The Lavender Scare and McCarthy era to thank for social injustice. Blind prejudice has convinced people to leave their views analyzed. Much like 80 hour work weeks, and lack of Social Security, unfunded healthcare and education allows wealthy corporations to profit.  The victimization should not continue.
