I Will Fear No Evil

Really?
Really?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you think a pedophile does a good job of running the city, you have some problems. 😂😂 Facebook idiot….

 

I Will Fear No Evil….I will HOWEVER, fear some of you. No wonder God wanted to destroy us…..

 

You KNOW me! I hate a pedophile….I will not tolerate one, I will not be friends with one, and I certainly wouldn’t defend one. Given the choice, I wouldn’t piss on their gums if their teeth were on fire……BUT I think in the realm of evil, the most evil thing an individual can do is to spread rumors they know to be false. No knife, sword, gun or stone can do the same damage as words, and we know this to be true because the Bible states this very principle between its pages. The Bull Sh*t in the news between the real accusations, and false witnesses really has this country by the short-hairs. We don’t know who to believe, what to believe, which side to choose, or even for whom to vote. It’s a veritable he said/she said, and so in order to be safe, unless in Alabama, we ask the person to step down….and face their accusers. What’ happens when there are no accusers? What happens when it’s just evil gossip? My friends, it’s a crazy time we live in right now, I Will Fear No Evil…..I do fear some of YOU! I hope some of you go to hell for what you’re saying. I really do….

Okay, so I’m not really allowed to wish hell upon anyone, but it is one of the Top Ten Biggies that will get you into trouble…This asshole is saying he knows people who know, and that those people KNOW….but they don’t know sh*t. He’s not a big movie star, he’s a citizen…why wait? Seeing a charge of pedophilia leveled against the Mayor of Danville this am, I had to say something, because it didn’t appear anyone else was. Like calling someone “Racist” it was, at one time, a very powerful word. Now, everyone is a Racist….sh*t I’m a racist…..WHATEVES! But I am not going to sit back and allow you to water down the term Pedophilia,  just because you don’t like the Mayor. Friends, why are you letting this happen? A freaking FB bully is falsely accusing, or at the least, spreading what he doesn’t know to be true, and real children are real victims in this country…It means, how long, before, like RACIST, we look the other way…with a SMH?….Dude, I hope, you get the sh*t sued out of you for calling him that…..OMG, I hope he takes every dime you’ve ever made…..I really DO.

We have to take a stand….not a stand against the Government, for we see how that goes (LOL), but against each other. We need to hold each other accountable, for the verbiage we use, when trying to protect our Constitutional Rights; which BTW jackass, doesn’t protect you, when making a false accusation against an individual. I think, he thinks, he’s Christian….Ya never know! You may THINK (which really, you don’t) you’re safe, but calling someone a pedophile, without proof, is very dangerous…..I see you’re attending college…..it’d be hard to do that, with no future money…..We’ve tolerated rumors, gossip, the bearing of false witness against each other, and we’ve done so, because frankly, it wasn’t us…..we like the down and juicy Jerry Springer fights on FB…but sometimes, real lives are ruined…and we’re okay with that? That makes us no better than the asshat spreading the rumors….you know that right? We’ve allowed #fakenews to go on for so long, we can no longer discern the difference between the line of decency, and the line of ENOUGH. Calling the Mayor a pedophile because you don’t like him is an evil thing to do, and I’m gonna judge my friend, by saying a little time in hell would do you good…..SMH…..It may do me good as well, but I’m not going around watering down the only term we have to protect children, you asshole, ARE. I Will Fear No Evil, but I do fear my fellow man….not because of what they can and will say about me, but about what YOU can and will believe them saying…..Pedophiles are the King of Monsters in the closet…..they destroy lives……we cannot tolerate the destinging of the word…. Ya know, I’d kill a pedophile…..I would….I’ve seen their eyes…..there’s a sickness, a void that exists within them…they have no soul….it’s not a term one should use lightly….Can we start the right fights on FB now? A child depends on you. Be Blessed.

God Has A Plan

The kids are playing in our back yard right now; which is cute, but a little difficult. We left 2 acres, for a plot less than half the size, but they seem to be doing well with the change. Kids are resilient….Wish I could be like that. All the talk of Folsom prison lately, inspired Merrill and I to take a drive to the lovely city, to check things out. Folsom really is beautiful with big beautiful mansions, a quaint historical district with rolling hills, a beautiful brook, and of course, the prison made famous by Johnny Cash. It doesn’t have theat prison town feeling that many in Illinois experience. I mean, it has a lower crime index, and honestly, the schools have a 95% graduation rate. It was a nice Saturday afternoon drive and while fun, it meant nothing to me. It’s been hard for me out here, but what can I do, but just move forward…and pray that God has a plan.….whose life am I meant to influence out here?

This morning, while doing dishes, I had an anxiety attack. It’s been a while, it was NOT a welcomed, nor a peaceful feeling. I don’t understand why it occurred, but I understood that if I don’t get a handle on my emotions, it’s not going to end well for me, nor my family. Am I leaving Merrill? No…I mean probably not….but he and I did speak last night. I was so hard for me to see the pain in his eyes as he tried to digest the words I had just said him. “How are you doing here. Settling in?”….. I just spouted the first thing that came to my mind, but why would I….should I….lie? “I hate it here. Absolutely hate it“….and with that, the talk was on, ” I’m trying…I’m trying to so hard to do this for you and the kids“. We both knew this move wouldn’t be easy, but I had no idea it would be as hard, as it’s turned out to be. Everything about my life has changed….everything. From my support system, to my Activities of Daily Living, I’m trying to find some solid ground in which to rebuild….many would say we did this as Brats in the military. Yes well, I hated it then too….I’m much older now…..I’m too old for this mess.

So, I haven’t written in a few days, because I haven’t been able to find my center. Mostly because I’m trying to be the center for my family. There was a young girl in a BMW this morning, that cut off my right of way, while she waited her turn in the Starbucks drive-thru lane. From the front windshield, I made the “WTH?” sign, then quickly realized that here….there will be no one to phone video my fight and put it on YouTube. I’m only partially kidding, I did get out and beat her ass….felt good, but my point is I am in this beautiful California city….and I don’t feel right. I’m so blessed…..God, I’m so freaking BLESSED….why is that not enough for me? I’m a strong person, so this morning, I made the decision to do all within my power to make this work. I mean, I miss home, but I also know that part of the reason we jumped at this new opportunity was to get my kids out of Danville….no disrespect, but that place is really turning bad, and I needed to provide them with a better place to experience life. No, I’m stronger than this….but the anxiety attacks need to go, they’re simply a manifestation of the stress I’ve been putting on myself. I made the very best friends in Germany and Danville, and I’ll make them out here too….After all, Ronnie hasn’t conquered this land yet….and the way I’ve been feeling lately, I’m not sure I want too anymore….and when I start to feel like that, I KNOW I need to move myself past this, because God Has A Plan….Seriously though, it would be great if He could give me a small hint…a push…or a drink. All three would be GREAT right now because I don’t like the anxiety….I really don’t. Be Blessed.

I Don’t Care

Are you asking me that because I’m black, or because you want my opinion?” Friend

Um, because you’re black?”….Ronnie

FINE, I’ll tell you what I HATE. I hate people who post to Facebook  just to get a rise out of others!”

Oh, um….yeah…..I hate that too!” …..Shhhh

I Don’t Care….Suck It!

In the last 24 hours, I’ve been called a dumb ass, slut, bitch, been told that others felt sorry for my kids, advised to kill myself…and well, those were the kind. Following the advice of a friend, I have been out and about…kinda feeling up the situation, trying to smell what The Rock is cooking, but honestly, if you let things get to you, others have power…and if there’s one thing I don’t like, it’s when others have power over me. It’s the main reason I started my own business in Danville, Illinois. I intentionally write things, that I know is going to trigger others, because why not? The funny part, is that many don’t get my sarcasm. Group mobbing also has a lot to do with it, but honestly, many of the folk I’ve encountered are probably good, church going folk….I know that….because I am one too. I Don’t Care….I didn’t start off to play the heel, but come on, sex, racism, and hate SELL!

Kevin Hart had an affair, it was filmed, then he was extorted an enormous fee to keep the video quite. It was quite smart of him to give the tape to the FBI, and not fall for the Ponzi scheme, but not smart that he cheated. We love to drown our hero’s don’t we? I feel badly for him…as bad as I can feel for a serial cheater anyway, and I’m just waiting for the announcement that he’s going into drug rehab with his new-found Spiritual leaders, Al Sharpton, or maybe Jesse Jackson…who knows? On an unrelated note, Hobby Lobby made national news with a cotton display in their Arts and Crafts aisle. Someone took offense to it, labeled it as Racism, then decided that social media was an appropriate forum to air said grievance. I think about the story of Emmett Till, the 14yr old little boy murdered for whistling at a white woman. Decades after his death, the white woman, Carolyn Bryant, admitted to lying about him. She was complicit in his murder…..Now, I’m no social professor, nor am I a highly educated woman, but I would think of THAT….as racism, but what do I know? I just keep thinking that when we see Racism where none exists, it’s going to be harder to rally the troops, when true racism rears its ugly head…and it will….bet money!

Urban Dictionary defines “White-Splaining” as:

The paternalistic lecture given by Whites toward a person of color defining what should and shouldn’t be considered racist, while obviously exhibiting their own racism“.

Makes sense. It’s like telling a woman, whose boss just rubbed his junk on her back, that she’s reading too much into the touch. Maybe I have no right to dictate what is, and is not, racism. I haven’t experience racism, sexism yes, racism no….Therefore, I can’t possibly KNOW what it feels like….My husband hasn’t cheated on me….so to comment on the Kevin Hart debacle, would be slightly disingenuous. However, I Don’t Care. Princeton is now doing away with the term, “Freshman” opting instead for a gender neutral term. There are some Bibles that have done away with the masculine form of God, so as not to offend someone; which as a digression, the Bible offends okay? It just does…it’s supposed to…I mean, if you have an issue with me, can’t you just step to me without bringing in the kids? It’s like nothing is sacred anymore….and if nothing is sacred, then slowly everything becomes off-limits, and if everything becomes off limits, then the social bonds that used to hold us together fade….and if they fade….there’s no safety net, and friends, regardless of color, politics, race, gender, affiliation, or penis/vagina status, we all need safety nets.

The day that poor little mentally challenged, soldier wanna be asshole, attacked me as a Nazi, a dozen friends came over and flamed his ASS….safety net. The day I watched a mother brutally beat her toddler in his car seat and I intervened, then followed her until police arrived…safety net. The day I punched a man in the face, because no one else would do it for me…..Ah….no safety net….get it? I’ve stood up for many, backed down to few. I have engaged, enraged, encountered and encouraged a generation of people to be themselves, and I can do this….I can be myself….because I Don’t Care. If we had more, who didn’t care, we could be a society that doesn’t need counseling just to make it through Free Speech Week at Berkley. I was advised by a poster, that some speech, should be anticipated as hate speech, then shut down….Well okay….but then, I’m going to anticipate you, as a threat, and shut you down. Don’t you see, that to be constantly TRIGGERED doesn’t hurt me….but it will destroy YOU? Kevin Hart is a douche bag. Hobby Lobby was not being racist. Not everyone has an agenda, not everyone needs to be qualified in dealing with your issues. All we need to do, is care less, care more, and discern the difference. So yes, I told my friend, that as a black woman in society, I wanted her opinion….didn’t make me racist. I just figured she would know. As far as her hatred of Shock Jocks, well we won’t tell her…it’s our secret. Besides, she’s an Air Force Colonel Pilot (so is her hubby..yikes) and she’s too educated to get me, and yes, I just wrote that those who get me are not educated. I Don’t Care. I just don’t. I’m too old, tired, jaded and honestly, disgusted. I don’t even know the real monsters in society anymore….and for the chicken/egg record…..Racism existed before Trump….he is not the KING….he is simply a product of a society going to hell in a hand basket. Gotta go. It’s almost Fall here, and I hate it. I hate it all….I miss home. Maybe Merrill will cheat on me, have it on film so I can kick him out, leave him, sue him for every dime he’s worth, go home and make it to Festival of Trees. Too petty? Yeah, I Don’t Care. Judge me, don’t judge me…it’s all relative. Besides, you have no idea what I’m going through, so suck it…LOL. Be Blessed.

Your arches are dropping. We call this ‘Runners Foot’” D.O. to Ronnie

Chanel said ‘No!‘” Ronnie sadly to herself.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the horrible tragedy today in Sacramento, California

Someone once asked me why I call certain columns “Babble” and I told them because so much has happened in that one day, that when I throw it all together, it reads like Babble. Honestly, I’ve had a great day, and the greatest blessing was talking with my best friend for 45 min on the phone. Not to digress, but I do miss them both…My Publicist and 5th Degree mentor. Teasing my 5th Degree Mentor that I had found an expert in The Discipline whom was willing to train me, he responded, “Well you must not have talked for very long” and he’s right…I didn’t…I’m not stupid, but he can suck it…by this time next year, Ronnie will be a trained assassin. Wednesday Babble...it really has been a good day, but not for everyone.

A man shot through his Ramada hotel room door today, wounding two CHP officers and killing a Deputy off his balcony. This occurred in Sacramento, California, a city just outside my residence in Granite Bay. When asked by the reporter, “Does this happen a lot” the spokesperson for the Sacramento Sherri’s responded, “The shooting of Officers? No, I don’t think so“. It was then that I realized if she could ask a stupid question like that, then I could easily be employed as a local news reporter, so that’s a good thing, but seriously, our thoughts and prayers do go out to the families affected by today’s events. These men and women put their lives on the line for us everyday….some don’t get to come home. I am truly sorry for their loss.

I’ll be creating a new category on VeronicaPhilips.com called “fashion and design” (it’s a working title). The main purpose is to  recommend, or slaughter them products that don’t meet my standards, and yes, I’ll get paid for it. If you haven’t already heard, I’ve been approved to be an affiliate of Coach and Dooney & Bourke, working on Gucci, and Chanel said NO. Coach and Dooney reviewed my site, liked what they saw, and approved me…so when you see a post recommending a product, with a link attached, feel free to scroll on by, or since it’s almost Christmas, (4 months ya’ll) feel free to follow the links on my page. It’s like the kid’s fundraisers….I bought your stuff, so you can look at mine, but honestly, I’m honored that after almost 5 years, my page is finally doing well….WTG Ronnie!

Finally, it’s hard out here for a bitch. I’m not insecure, but there is a certain way of life out here, a style that will take some getting used to. Making friends is hard for a child, but harder for an adult. Especially, when you set off on the wrong foot with your neighbor’s dog (whose a total asshole) and your husband, not you (his luck), is the one who has to deal with him. My neighbor threatened to call the police on our dogs for barking; which really…that’s what dogs do…BARK, especially when another dog is teasing them…..A quick review of the laws out here and we discovered that it is indeed against the law out here to have your dogs bark, and since I’m already begging for my Nursing license, I’d better shape up, and play ball. I suppose calling the guy a prick is not the way to start a life-long, personal relationship. Guess he won’t buying a Coach from me anytime soon…..

Wednesday Babble. The life and times of Ronnie, Lifestyle Blogger. I am attending Cardio Kickboxing class tomorrow, and to be the student, instead of the teacher could be cool. I have to hold off on running until I’m fitted for inserts that will help my “Runner’s Foot” but on the bright side….I’ve lost 10lbs, so that’s a good day. I need a tummy tuck and a boob job, so I’ll be pushing that Affiliate program pretty hard. The Labor Day Parade is Monday in Danville, and for the first time in years, I won’t be REPPING as their “Princess”, and that one hurts. I know there will be other parades, and other chances to wear the crown…and maybe that’s the Affirmation here. As long as you live, as long as you keep trying, as long as you follow your heart, mind, body and soul, there will always be other chances to Wear…The Crown; which as a digression, would have been a better title. I look forward to doing that again one day…maybe even here…in California. After all, there’s plenty of divaness to go around, and if you can make it in Danville, you can make it anywhere in the world. I know this…because I’ve done it….now, let me go find it, and dust it off. Tomorrow is a new day. Be Blessed.

Good Bye Illinois….Danville. Love you babe“. Ronnie….

And it has come to pass that all good things must come to an end. Today is the day that I officially get onto my white horse (Red Escalade) and ride (speed) off into the sunset. I’ve been a Midwest girl all my life. I’ve done things like attend the Red Neck Games, and eaten nasty fried butter, but now, that must all cease and desist, (right in the middle of county fair season DAMNIT) as I leave for the left coast. The dogs are gassed (lol) the car is warming up (another thing I hate about the Midwest, it’s cold right now), Merrill is appropriately worried and I? I…um…well what can I say? I’ll Miss You

I’ll miss my 5th Degree mentor, who tells me there will be someone out there, sans issues of ethics, whom will teach me how to seriously wound someone. Fingers crossed. I’m really wanting to know the neck snap…..a good throat punch would work too.

I’ll miss the cornfields, that when properly placed, created blind curves, that you just knew some ass hat was going to test you on, but when the sun set on one of those blind curves, you knew you had a party right around that corner. Never understood why, on a country road some red neck thought it okay to run a stop sign, or drive in my lane…..

I’ll miss my church, where the love of Christ really was felt. Funny how they read me, and still allowed me in the doors, so I guess they must be really non-judgmental, of course, I could..on occasion….watch someone bite their tongue when peeking in my direction. I mean, they’re human…its okay.

I’ll miss my good friend Mr. Mayor, and all the BS, POS, ignorant, just plain stupid things people say to him and about him on a daily basis. I mean REALLY Danville. All you freaking have to do is read, (it’s fundamental), to know, learn, ascertain, or even just understand what goes on…on a daily basis….in the city. To insist that the Mayor lines his pockets with thousands and thousands of dollars, makes me want to hire him an attorney, so that he can sue your dumb ass, for tens and tens of dollars. My God, go get an education, a damned job, stay off FB, and please, learn to read. Freaking asshole.

To the bitch who flipped me off in traffic yesterday, understand that the laws of physics mandated that my car could indeed beat up your car, I could also beat up your car, and you’re lucky I was distracted…or I’d have followed you, and verily disappointed my 5th degree mentor….dig? I won’t miss you.

I’ll miss ATA. That place has been my home for 8 freaking years. They’ve watched Sweetness, then Duchess grew up. When I had a 911, they were there…all of them…organizing the babies, feeding the babies, making sure anyone who’d step to me did so fairly. That may be in the Top 3 hardest things about leaving…is my ATA mommies rolling deep in the Thanksgiving Sale at Walmart….oh, and we were there…..watching FB….to see if any Danville idiots got out of line (see above)…..

I’ll miss parades. Oh my GOD….I’ll miss parades. The Labor Day parade…See, several years ago, I told my Publicist that I had always wanted to be parade queen…she said to me, “Why don’t you get a tiara ride on the float and wave? That’s what they all do.”….Ever since then, I was the ATA Queen. Love that girl. One year, in the Labor Day Parade, a crowd hassled my daughter (Duchesses) and divided us, my 5th Degree Mentor, after I asked him, told me I could beat some ass….I tried….Jen came and got Syd…Sigh.

I’ll miss the seasons. There’s no snow in Sacramento. A little dusting of snow at Christmas would be amazing….little deer sticking his tongue out for some aqua refreshment….but this BSC Midwest Blizzards is OUT! I will miss the snow…the shut in days with the family and the wood burning stove, the watching tv and reading books….the warmth of Merrill’s body as we huddle close together under the blankets and he…..NM….TMI.

I’ll miss all my friends…each and every one of you. FB has made it possible to keep up, but to see you out and about, and have you hug me and talk to me like I wasn’t unpopular anymore, is more than this Ozarkian Girl’s heart can handle. I love each and every one of you, even if you didn’t love me, and if you didn’t love me, I have no use for you, Good Riddance…..so long….but for the rest…Thank you….Thank you.

To my best friend, my confidant, the one who encouraged me, had my back, rolled deep with me, and to some extent kept me honest…Well, as honest as you could……Jen, my Publicist, my best friend. Thank you. I’ll miss you the most Scarecrow….When I get to Cali, and I become Nefarious, we’re going to do stuff together, but please earn you damn non-salary and start getting me gigs…Jimney Cricket woman, I’m tired of carrying this team. But seriously, I love you and John very, very much….Ima cry…so Ima go.

To everyone else I may not have mentioned…it’s early, I didn’t get Nesquick last night, I won’t now until Thursday, so my mind is blurry, hazy and I have no coffee. I gotta go say good-bye to the babies, walk the dogs, and LEAVE OUT, but know that if you were in my life, even in a small, small way….I’ll miss you. I won’t miss the spiders, but I will miss you. Take Care, with hope and good fortune, I’ll see you all at Thanksgiving…Please…be good….be kind…love each other….and I’ll see you very, very soon…..Be Blessed.

Remember you set the Tone, you ARE the Example. BE KIND to each other. Show GRACE and MERCY to all those whom cross your path today. With your Daily Affirmations complete….enjoy your Tuesday. I’ll Miss You.

My Thoughts

cabeca-zumbi

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Yeah, I get that a lot“. Me responding to an acquaintance who admitted she thought I was a bitch…when she first met me.

 

I’m actually a nice person, sorta. I’m sorta a nice person, but I can’t help some things, or I can help them, and just don’t want to. Annoyance at my city, for what I perceive to be a lack of understanding, has finally reached a boiling point inside of me, and since I can’t come right out and address people one by one, I thought I’d write it here….where no one would read it….then I won’t get into so much trouble, and be banned off the local gossip pages. My Thoughts……Yes, this isn’t going to go over well at all.

 

  1. The flowers in Downtown Danville, were provided by a grant or something. The City did not purchase the flowers. I repeat, The….City….DID NOT…purchase the flowers. Now, can we at least agree that the city did not purchase the flowers? As long as we’re on it….
  2. The City cannot divert the grant money it received for the Downtown Beautification Project (the flowers) to fill a gap in the budget. I like the Fire Fighters too, but Grants don’t work that way…I mean they do for the assholes in Springfield, but here in Danville, if a Grant pays for it, that’s all it can pay for. Now, can we agree that the grant for the Downtown Beautification Project, cannot be spent to fill gaps in the budget? Let’s raise some taxes, get some additional revenue going, then we can pay for the services Danville is demanding.
  3. You’re mad at a Mayor for allowing Chicago residents to move to Danville, but what you fail to realize is that this is America. We can move anywhere we want. I do not have to write the Mayor, or Governor, or Council of any city (yes I know) in any state, or township and ask permission to move to their community. One, the Mayor cannot grant that permission, and two, (again) it’s America. So, let’s review. Chicago residents, are American, and can move to any community they see fit. They don’t have to ask us, we don’t have to approve them. And as long as we’re on it….
  4. Section 8 can be used anywhere in the country. It is a HUD program, that’s Housing and Urban Development, and as long as the resident qualifies, and the landlord qualifies, both parties may come together for an agreement to move in. The Mayor cannot give, nor deny, permission for the Section 8 recipients to use what the Feds approved.
  5. Ah “The Sign”…This one is a little longer, but I’ll try to go slowly. There was a sign in Chicago several years ago, a billboard really, encouraging the recently displaced residents of the now defunct Cabrini Green’s housing complex to move to Danville. Some ill-informed citizen, spread the rumor (and still does) that our current Mayor, put up the billboard in the hopes of receiving kickbacks and to just generally screw with the lives of the citizens of our esteemed town. What really happened is a company, Hispanic Housing Development Corporation, the managing agent and property owner of Vermillion Gardens and Green Meadow (a Section 8 Apartment complex), had some vacancies in their housing complex in Danville. Now, with Section 8, an empty apartment is money lost, so they took advantage of the demolition and encouraged Chicago residents to move here….and move here they did. Danville did not need to give permission, the Mayor (not Mayor at the time) did not receive any kickbacks, Chicago did not pay any kickbacks, and Aliens (as in ET) are not disguised as Chicago residents moving here to probe us. Seriously people, give it a break. You’re just being ignorant now.
  6. Gambling has been gambling for several years. We don’t have to have a casino to gamble. Just take a quick drive down Rt. 1, or go grab a beer at any fine beer establishment, and you will find the slot machines. Will a casino increase revenue? Maybe…but we have slots and poker already in our fine town….Personally, I want the Riverboat, and I’d appreciate it if you’d stop forcing your values on me, BUT if you insist on continuing to push your “morals” on me, I’m going to talk to you about my faith, my opinions, my values, and my dog….and I swear….I’ll do it.
  7. Yes, there is crime everywhere. If you think your little corner of the world has been violated, take a walk to Terre Haute, and let them introduce you to Meth. The crime rate has not increased because of race, color, religion nor Chicago, but because Springfield has made employers the enemy of the State…and frankly, there are no manufacturing jobs anymore, I know…I know…the good ole’ GE/GM days, but friends….they’re gone, and you can thank NAFTA…via Clinton…not Trump for that. What do you want? Stop voting blue, or go to Indiana….now they have some jobs.
  8. One stat, from a page created to opine, does not a fact make. Sorry folks, I know the stats fit within your worldview, I know you want to believe it so you can waive it in the Mayor’s face while calling him vile names, but that’s now how any of this works. Per capita means just that. If you have 10 people in a town, and 8 commit crimes, then yes, your town has an 80% crime rate, however, Chicago and St. Louis trump all day ya’ll…all day, and frankly, our crime has increased (see #7), but to take an OP-ED piece and flail it like Gospel just makes you look foolish. Do your own homework…come back….then we’ll discuss the Scientific evidence behind Essential Oils curing cancer. It’s true…I read it on Facebook.
  9. Our Mayor is not an idiot, just overwhelmed, but good to know that you’d rather call him an idiot than help. Love that 1st Amendment. Oh, and the whole National Guard thing……Um, Scott can’t do that….the Governor has to do that….and really, be careful what you wish for….very…very….careful.
  10. I’m embarrassed, ashamed, sad and a little angry, that this community would be so quick to be so judgmental. First, you do not get to decide who is…and is not…a citizen, or resident. You hate Trump for trying to keep the “illegal aliens” out, but are the first ones to get on a Scanner page and approve a Chicago ban….I don’t get you. Now, before you get all jackwaded on me, understand I was making a comparison, not an endorsement of Trump’s Wall, but you don’t get it both ways. You cannot decry what our President is doing, to try to reduce crime (his words), then pontificate a borderline racist comment to keep another American citizen out of what is NOT your city. STOP….you’re embarrassing yourself.

So, My Thoughts. I’m going to have to stop getting all bent out of shape when I read hypocrisies. I always wondered what it was that was going to destroy the human race, and I now know it to be FEAR. Mob actions, by an otherwise “decent” group of people. Hmmm, I think I get how the Holocaust started…Good people became crazed with fear, while others sat back and did nothing. Yep, we’re going to hell…and the thing is…there’s nothing we can do to stop this. Danville is just a snapshot of a much greater problem, and frankly, Trump had nothing to do with it….He’s just a poster boy for a society afraid. Lord, please….have mercy on our souls. Be Blessed.

SMH“….Ronnie reacting to the news of yet another shooting in Danville.

I’m not saying a word“…Danville resident, commenting on crime in the city.

 

Merrill and I plan on moving in a year. We’re just waiting to see if I’m going back to school in August or not. I’m not sure…..I’m tired, my body and mind weary, and I sigh, realizing that I have to study for the NCLEX, otherwise, this hell will be for naught. Maybe I’m afraid…ya know? After all, fear is a powerful motivator. Fear….it’s what makes good folk evil….fear is what allows the devil to roam….fear is what’s killing our citizens….fear is what’s giving the Mayor ulcers. I get that the Mayor has the face of nefariousness…..I’d hate him too if he wasn’t a friend, but fear has made the good citizens afraid to admit to being on his side, mostly because fear has turned the Danville citizenry into a mob of bullies… Yes well….you don’t bully ME into a corner…Pray for Danville, because FEAR has paralyzed the city. It’s YOUR FAULT Danville…Blame the Mayor all you want, but someone, somewhere knows/knew something……..Don’t blame him for your inability to STAND.

The Mayor is the face of Danville…so he’s also the bane of Danville. Last week a sweet young man, not a gang-banger, was shot while standing in his yard…his 12 yr old sister found him. Everyone asked, “Why him?”, and while I agree, I’d have to ask, “Why not?” Why is this boy special? Evil doesn’t care….Evil mandates that bad things happen to good people, and if you know who did this….you’re enabling EVIL in our city….I gotta ask, how long before Evil comes for you? Another man was shot over a traffic incident, and last night, someone took a bullet to the back of the head….that’s three shootings, two deaths (so far), and it’s only May. I once stood and argued with a wall, “What are you doing?” Merrill asked me….”Talking to the wall” I said, “Because you won’t listen“….Danville won’t listen…Physics teaches us that an object in motion, will stay in motion, until acted upon by a force….Crime is the object, Evil is the force.

And so, a little boy named Devon was killed last summer. Shot in the head, while playing basketball….you never get over the loss of a child…another mother in Danville, knows that now. Banning guns, enforcing a curfew, marching in the streets? It’s just teaspoons from the ocean….if you want to elicit real change in this city, Danville must accept two truths:

  1. The only thing evil needs to continue is for good people to be terrified into silence….and do…NOTHING.
  2. Stop blaming. It’s your community…it’s your streets, it’s the life of your children….you are in charge….Blame only enhances the crime.

Pray for Danville. We’ve had two car jackings, numerous break-ins, assaults, and now, MURDER….but know this, if I SEE something, if I KNOW something, if I even think for one second you’re involved in some nefarious sh*t…I’m calling. I’m telling, I’m doing all I can to get you off the streets, because know that you will not bully me, you will not intimidate me, you will not silence me….I hope my good brethren in Danville feel the same. Pray For Danville….It’s not the Mayor’s fault, it’s your fault….how many more children will die, before fear, becomes strength? Take out your Trash Danville….all crime needs, is for good people to do nothing but bitch…..SMH. Be Blessed.

A county of 80,000 people should NOT be having these kinds of big city problems”. Ronnie

If I ever get around to getting that RN, Merrill and I are moving. I’m serious. I was reading some statistic that noted a resident of Danville has a 1 in 4 chance of being the victim of a crime, and when you consider what the crimes are these days, that’s not comforting. So Merrill and I have made the decision to move and go live life on someone else’s Yellow Brick Road, except their road may be tainted too. Tainted Love…I’m not so sure it IS better somewhere else, but DC looks nice.

The people of Danville have a love/hate relationship with their mayor. I am a little biased, because he’s been one of my closest friends for two decades…I do get angry when I read the unintelligent bash him with information that had to come from the Enquirer. The truth is, our mayor is not a crooked man, just an overwhelmed man, with a citizenry ready to storm city hall with pitch forks and torches, but I’m not sure even they KNOW WHY. I suppose many really don’t understand that these problems didn’t simmer over night. Not willing to pay another red cent toward taxes, a decade ago, they demanded Scott pull a rabbit out of his ass with nothing but some shoe string and ear wax…then when he couldn’t, they turned on him and now, his legacy will be nothing more but trying to make it out of office with some of his wits still about him. It’s a thankless job that I don’t envy, but every now and then you gotta wonder who the real assholes in this city are. The crooks, in which nothing is personal, or the uneducated who’ll do all they can to slander the name of a good person? I’m going with the latter over the former, mostly because many of them don’t know what that means….

He wanted a riverboat. Long past the point of financial desperation, he sought to do anything that would bring revenue to the city he loved. Other cities our size have riverboats, and while the statistics are out on the effectiveness of gambling revenue on a city, it may have helped, but crime has now overtaken our city like slow-moving lava from Pompei, and no one wants us. Dig? We need action now….except I’m not sure if anyone knows that Illinois is broke, and there is nothing Scott can do about it. All the citizenry lamenting about the days of GM/GE don’t get that manufacturing is SOUTH of the border, the US border, not the county border, and that decision wasn’t Scott’s to make…get it? Scott cannot bring in manufacturing to Danville, any more than I can bring Gucci to shoot at the mall. The state has a very unfriendly business climate, choosing years ago to serve Satan rather than the voting block of downstate.  If Scott had any choice he’d hire more policemen and firefighters to kick the bad guy’s ass, but the State isn’t giving the city it’s share of the tax pie. Scott is not crooked, did not advertise to Cabrini Green, did not get checks for Section 8 enrollees (that’s just stupid), is not sacrificing cats at midnight, did not offer to sell Danville to the Sheiks, Did not shoot JR, and did not break up the Back Street Boys…..but as long as your God Blessing Christian Heart gets someone to blame it’s all fair. Tainted Love….This didn’t happen overnight, it will not go away overnight, but anyone who thinks they can do better should try. Just don’t be crooked like the last few contenders….you know who you are….the last thing Danville needs is a Chicago mini-me trying to strong-arm the citizens into an opium den for sex and if that offends you…Good. You’re probably stupid anyway. Politics it’s all good, until it isn’t. Personally I’d be firing right back….but that’s just me. Be Blessed.

The Mayor Is An Idiot

thelosers2010poster

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well what do you expect when all they do is spend money on downtown flowers, and people to water them. The mayor is an IDIOT!”…Well the 1st thing we do, when accusing anyone of misappropriating funds or being stupid, is to make sure we KNOW what we’re talking about, and not look stupid ourselves! Danville residents give me heartburn….

Prologue: Our murder, rape, robbery, suicide, drug overdose, car jacking, dog theft, and jaywalking rates have exponentially increased. Our crime rate has become on par with cities much larger than us. In our anger, we have lashed out at our Mayor, and anyone defending him. It’s become a free-for-all with citizens accusing the Mayor of everything from possessing Magical Powers to kill people with his mind, to downright theft of city funds. “Where is the money?” they shout with anger and pitchforks….I for one, am tired of the crime. It’s just a matter of time, before being in the wrong place at the wrong time makes me, or a member of my family a victim of a crime, HOWEVER, I am even more tired of the blame….In a car jacking incident at Wal-Mart, (a car left running with two children in it, while the mother went shopping), a Wal-Mart employee made note that there was a car running idle, with kids left alone…on her Freaking Facebook Page….she did not call police, she did not report her observations to her Supervisor….the car was then carjacked…..I’ll let that sit and percolate for a moment. The Mayor Is An Idiot.…I don’t think so, but I could be wrong.

For those Facebook Bloggers who like to watch late night television and opine, the problem…or the answer….seems to revolve around our Idiot Mayor, and his ability to piss off the masses, by doing absolutely nothing. It seems, that many years ago, the Mayor put up a billboard in the South Side of Chicago, welcoming all whom read it, to a new life in Danville, where the flowers smelled nicer, the people were less racists, and the taxes were lower. I’d say he was batting three for three lies right there! The Major also promised to pick me up a gallon of milk from the store…I’m still waiting….

So, there are two principles that one needs to understand before going into politics:

  1. You can please all of the people, some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you cannot please all of the people, all of the time, especially those in Danville.
  2. An object in motion, will stay in motion, until acted on by a force….

Clamoring for his resignation, Danville, like all other cities in Corruption, is held hostage by Chicago. If Chicago say’s “Jump” the rest of Illinois says “Screw you”, but we have to jump because nothing gets done, without Chicago’s okay….get it? Chicago keeps voting in corrupted politicians. Understand this one concept, the law say’s that pensions must be funded, before any other line item is addressed, including payroll, so as much as I hate it, we are going to have to let some employees, like the Firefighters, go…Because Unions and Illinois go together like a Peanut Butter and Nutella Sandwich….Danville…you did some of this with your votes for State Government…..BLAME YOURSELF! The citizenry has made it clear that they are not going to be taxed another red cent…so cuts have to be made……There is only so much the Mayor can do…Pensions come first; which is ironic since Illinois hasn’t funded a pension in ten years.

About The flowers….The precious flowers that grace our Downtown and Hospital areas, were not purchased with precious tax monies. They were purchased with a grant, and the upkeep is not by Maintenance, but by volunteers. No public tax monies were spent… on the freaking flowers. Can we STHU about them NOW? Do some research….The Mayor did not put up a sign in Chicago. When the public housing unit, Cabrini Green, closed…. the FEDS, via the Sections 8 Voucher program, assisted the displaced residents to seek housing elsewhere in the State. The Mayor at the time, Jones, inherited the original mess….not the current Mayor, but we shouldn’t let facts get in the way of our right to speech. The Section 8 Voucher program, is a federal program…they, nor us….can discriminate if the individuals meets all criteria. Our Mayor is not consulted…..There was no sign….in Chicago…welcoming residents to Danville. If you have proof of it…please share…

He has made mistakes, but this is not the Droids You Seek. Without opining on the Riverboat too much, it is at least a step into addressing the declining tax base….it will bring more jobs….it may help our situation…..but understand that as long as we live in a State of Corruption, we are at the mercy of Chicago, and the corrupted politician’s they elect. I want an annexation. I want to be separate….Tax money comes from the State….if there is any hold-up in funding…(i.e. the budget crises, and the stand-off) Danville will not receive her righteously earned share….this is not the Mayor’s fault, but since he is the head of the city, I get why he gets the ire…So The Mayor Is An Idiot. Fair enough, but some of the previous admin, like in the Obama defense, is to blame here. I don’t hate the residents of Chicago…I hate the city of Chicago, I hate the politicians of Chicago….and I’m not happy with those who’d rather update their FB page, over reporting children left in a running car. At least the carjacker did the right thing. He dropped the children off at the curb, before taking off in the car…and anytime you praise the actions of a carjacker, you know you’re going to hell in a hand basket. SMH….this isn’t Scott’s fault, but Justin Case, it is, I’m moving….Indiana is 5 min away….Think I’ll become a Hoosier for a while…I mean…U of I….I of U..tomato/tomatoe. Who knows, I may look good in Red/Cream….and even I vomited in a my mouth writing that, a little bit. Be Blessed.

Don’t Get It Twisted

I Am No One's Bitch
I Am No One’s Bi”Oh no!” Deep Breath SIGH……

Oh no!” Deep Breath Sigh…..

In what can at best be described as a poor choice of words, a local Danville citizen made the hit list of many residents yesterday when he called a group of young hero’s “monkeys”. To add some perspective to the already offensive comment, these young group of boys had won every game in their season, thus, were undefeated… They were ROCK STARS, and when escorted through the streets Danville like Rock Stars, a poster on a local scanner page asked why the police were running with lights and sirens. “To Keep The Monkey Under Control” was the response of this local idiot. To add more perspective, he voted for Trump; which shouldn’t matter, but it does.  Don’t Get It Twisted…Do not put me in the same boat with those who are too stupid, to know, they’re stupid.

Okay, so it wasn’t a poor choice of words. It was RACIST…This idiot took a group of students, role models among their peers, children who played a stellar basketball season…..beloved babies…..and reduced them to the color of their skin… they are too young to know hatred….I condemn, in the strongest of terms possible, what he said about those babies. I am livid that some racist asshole hid behind the 1st Amendment, a protection not even offered for citizen to citizen speech, as an excuse for his disgusting comments, and if I see him, I’ll step to him, but understand something, in this country, we have long fought to be judged by the content of our individual character, rather than be judged by the color of our skin. We must fight the urge to revert back to medieval times and generate hate, based on the actions of ONE PERSON.

Of course as he voted for Trump, and had a Trump picture on his Facebook page, all Trump Voters, or what is being called by the media as Trump Supporters, are racist, but it’s okay to do that, because hate excuses all behavior. So, apparently, I am a racist….even through I’m not entirely a Trump Supporter….and it doesn’t matter one iota of anything I have said or done in the past….because I voted for Trump. Calling me a Trump Supporter:

  1. Discounts any opinion I have
  2. Discounts my right to #boycott anything
  3. Discounts my right to speech,
  4. Discounts my right to assemble…
  5. Discounts my rights as a citizen

Until we see people for the blood and guts, the strife, accomplishments, the hopes, dreams, fears, victories…..the pure skeleton they are underneath, racism will not end. Racism is defeated on a unique individual to individual relationship. For example, use a slur around me, and I’ll be forced to think about the women I love like a mother, the sisters that adopted me, my best friend I’ve known since HS (gulp almost 30 years), my nieces and nephew, my “quasi grandchildren”…. I’ll get angry, and I’ll beat your ass. Calling a group of young boys monkeys, makes me livid….assuming I am a racist because of what HE wrote, makes me even madder. Being white, does not make me racist, assuming that I’m racist because I’m white, makes YOU the racist….Don’t Get It Twisted…you don’t get a pass just because someone was racist to you, for if we keep playing that quid pro quo game, we ensure racism has an environment in which to grow. You Hip? I do not support anything Mr. Danville Citizen said, nor wrote. He made his bed, he’ll lie in it, but I WILL NOT lie in it with him…Now, I want to take this opportunity to wish those Rock Star Basketball players a hearty Congrats….that was an amazing feat….Danville is so proud of you. I’m sorry what Mr. Idiot said about you….don’t let it get to your souls….enjoy your victory, we’ll worry about the haters. Good job boys….you did your families and community proud. Be Blessed.
