With the Tate-LaBianca Murders, Charles Manson was attempting to kick off a racial armageddon. The idea was to commit those heinous crimes, pin it on black people, getting white folks so wound up, a race war would break out. As if the ’60s and every other decade before it weren’t enough.
From what I’ve read, the young man who murdered the people in their house of worship was doing so because blacks rape their women, deal drugs, etc. There are plenty of people of EVERY stripe dealing in that sort of dirt–it’s not specific to any one “race.” But imagine this: he went into a place where people were working out their souls’ salvation and trying to live upright…to murder them because THEY are raping women, dealing drugs, etc.?!
Then, to pour salt into that wound, there are people hailing that Nimrod as some sort of HERO?!
Sounds like the Day of the Rope from ‘The Turner Diaries’ to me!
You would think that, in this great, so-called melting pot of ours, in the year 2015, we would have put all the racism aside (from ALL sides).
Hell to the NO.
The crime is murder. Whether it was an obviously-pregnant Sharon Tate who was repeatedly stabbed while her killers said, “We have no sympathy for your baby, bitch!” or 9 worshippers shot to death during church service, the crime is STILL murder. Death of the innocent at someone else’s hand is a travesty, no matter the color of the victim. However, with race being the motivating factor in California (circa 1969) and South Carolina (circa 2015), it shows how far we have NOT come as an American people.
I am gaining a better understanding of how empires fall when rotting away from the inside. This country has been on a nihilistic mission to rip itself apart since its inception. It is doing a stellar job.
Welcome to Babylon.
Our lives are a culmination of what we make or allow to happen. I’d venture to guess that about 90% of what happens has a lot to do with what we did to bring it about.
If you meet a person who is ALWAYS broke, it’s probably not that they cannot make the money they need; it’s likely that they are bad with financial decisions and have come to accept that they can live with the results of that.
The above example was Yours Truly. I have made some horrible money decisions, primarily based on the fear of not having enough. Had to take responsibility, change my mindset, do some reading, and make the necessary changes.
What you allow is what will come to define you. If you let people walk all over you, you’re probably going to have a string of bad personal and professional relationships. Your love life will lack. Your friendships will be shaky, at best.
I am becoming more audacious as time goes by. I walk circumspectly (that’s the big word of the day, LOL!), constantly reviewing my existence, in order to learn, grow, and make the needed improvements. The older I get, the lower tolerance I have for BS–including my own!
The Bible says time and chance happens to everyone. We don’t have a say in the hand we are dealt. However, any good player of cards or dominoes can work even the poorest hand to an advantage.
As long as you’re learning, you’ll never lose. The loser is the one that lets frustration override and emotion dictate. Frustration fades; emotion changes like the weather. It’s time to learn, define, master, and DOMINATE.
Losing is for losers.
