Word of the day ๐Ÿ˜

-Describing someone who is aroused by looking at someoneโ€™s crotch.

From croc “hook” meaning “region where the body forks” + Late Middle English libidinous from Latin libidinosus, from libido ‘desire, lustโ€™. First Known Use: 15th century

Used in a sentence:
โ€œIโ€™m leaving, this beach is full of krukolibidinous gongoozlers.โ€


Black Satire ๐Ÿ˜ America Pastor

โ€œOne wonders, whatever happened to purity? Whatever happened to that? Whatever happened to the days when girls said, Iโ€™m not going to be touched by every guy? Iโ€™m not going to walk down the aisle like a filthy dishrag on my wedding day. Whatever happened to that day?โ€

Probably dishes it out through an escort service and will soon be found out. These people tend to be perverted. Either that, or he wishes he was the opposite sex. I would keep an eye on him and the kids.


Australian Politics ๐Ÿค”

“Journalists say a thing that they know isn’t true, in the hope that if they keep on saying it long enough, it will be true.”

— Arnold Bennett (British novelist 1867-1931)

EVERY FEW years, Australian TV networks collect a multi-million-dollar windfall in advertising revenue. Political advertising generates rivers of cash which keep many marginal operators afloat. From the network viewpoint it doesn’t matter who wins the election, or whether the most outrageous lies are told, as long as the money rolls in. Our electoral laws do not expressly forbid lying in political advertising, and if anyone can be bothered taking the time & trouble to rebut some of the claims made, the correction is never as prominently featured as the original lie.

To recap: We have allowed an electoral system to evolve which favours whoever spends the most on TV advertising. These are politicians we’re talking about, a breed trusted by very few Australians, a breed known to lie without even pausing for breath, and television itself is a medium designed to entertain rather than educate. The money to fund these blatantly false ads comes from party slush-funds built up by donations (many of them invisible to public scrutiny) from vested interests. It’s thus not just a system which may encourage corruption, but a system which makes corruption inevitable. It’s hard to imagine a lousier system, unless it be the US model, which is worse because of scale rather than its mere rottenness.

Most evenings recently have seen viewers blitzed by the bloated visage of one Clive Palmer, noted bankrupt & fraudster, who doesn’t really have a party organisation behind him, who missed half the sitting days last time he was in the Senate & slept through most proceedings whenever he could be bothered turning up. This is a man who leaves workers unpaid & vast ponds of chemical pollution for the State to clean up, yet somehow he can afford large sums ($30 mill, $50 mill, or something in between) to pay for his campaign ads. He has no policies of his own, preferring to stress what he sees as being wrong with the other parties, and if he’s caught in an obvious porkie, as he was by claiming Liberal tax cuts would not come into force until 2024, he seems unfazed, and there’s nothing anyone can do about it.

Norway banned paid political advertising on radio & TV back in 2005 & their electoral system seems a lot closer to democracy than ours. Nothing will change, of course, because the men who profit by the present arrangement are unlikely to voluntarily surrender the advantages it gives to them & their cronies.

Einstein noted that the opposite of genius was what happened when we perform the same experiment in the same way an endless number of times & keep expecting a different result. We’ve had television advertising & mock-debates as part of our election landscape for four decades now, & the state of democracy has never been unhealthier. If anything, it gets worse every three years.

There’s nothing wrong with television being part of the political process; there’s nothing right about TV dominating our political life in the way it now does. The more money political parties spend on advertising, the greater the chance they’ll be telling fibs.

Broken soul ๐Ÿ’ฅ

Its hard to fly when something is weighing you down.

Sadly a lot of people carry their pasts around with them like a rock tied to their ankles, how can you ever expect to spread your wings and fly with that weight holding you down ?

As much as the past maintains a hold on all survivors of any form of trauma, it is important to also take hold of our future. Although changed in many ways by what we have experienced, we are still alive. I remember telling my own children that there was no point in putting their abuser inside a cell if they were also going to build one around themselves.

It’s frightening and challenging and often difficult to take control of our lives, especially for those who have lived under the control of someone else for a period of time. Yet it is possible and it is worthwhile. It may take time, but time will pass anyway, we may as well be using it constructively rather than allowing our abusers to win by continuing to destroy ourselves long after they are gone from our lives.

For some people, just stepping outside of that fear and uncertainty is harder than it is for others, but no one said it had to be a giant leap, tiny little baby steps are fine as long as you are taking them.

Think about all you have survived, use that to empower and encourage you. If you have survived all of that, you can achieve anything you set your mind to. If you have survived all of that, make it a life worth living, allow it to strengthen and soften you at the same time. Softening in terms of being more understanding of others, feeling empathy for the plight of those around you, and strengthening in terms of feeling proud that you have overcome so much, building your own resilience and tool box of methods of coping with life going forward.

You are the only person living your life, you are the one who can truly take control and make the decisions that will set you free and make you happy. Write down affirmations, stick them in places where you will see them, listen to inspirational podcasts, read blogs by other survivors, learn to love and appreciate all that you are and all that you can be. Set yourself free (GE)

Control Freak

“CAN’T BE!” a poem a.k.a.: “I Ain’t A Control Freak!” May 3, 2019 (Friday)

“It-can’t-be-so, can-it? Oh, no! No, no, no!
For-I’m not-aware-of-it! and-that-fills-me-with-woe!
And-I’m-sure-I-know-everything under-The-Sun!
I’m-sure-IT-CAN’T-BE! Else, my-life’s-not-so-fun!
For, if I do THINK – something’s ALL-RIGHT-by-me,
I’m-sure, I’m-sure-EVERY-ONE should-surely-agree!
I’m-“The-Center of This Universe,” so-I’m on-top o’-things!
From-my-conclusions – and-deductions, SACRED-NESS RINGS!”

Ever-know some-one-like-this? How-’bout-your-self,
All-the-conclusions-we-jump-to, like-some greedy, old-elf!
Even-the-smartest – and-wisest(?) fall in[to] this trap!
We’re-beyond “self absorbed,” and there-is a BIG GAP,
Between what-IS the-case – and-our-thoughts-how-things-are!
Why-do-you-think so-many [people] head-to-The-Bar?!
Well, they-need-to-establish – a confident state,
To-believe-that-their-judgments are-just-short-of-GREAT!

“So, if X-doesn’t-come-NOW, X-must-not-like-ME!
I gave an invitation – Wasn’t-it-SPURNED? so-rude-ly!?
IF X-doesn’t-apologize – pretty-quickly, then-I,
Will-NEVER-speak-to-X-again! You needn’t ask why!
X just better SHAPE UP, according-to-notions I-hold,
And Y (also) has-failed [to-visit] me, so-IF Truth-it-be-told,
Y-is-being-rude, just-like-X, who-got-my-invite!?
To Hell with them both! Me? I’m-never up-tight!”

What’s-“RUDE” and what’s not, you’ll-probably-find,
Is just about – what’s-going-on – in your BEAUTIFUL MIND!?
And most folks, I think, once-there’s-“half-a-routine,”
Think – IF anyone breaks it – THEY-ARE ALMOST OBSCENE!
Once you establish a pattern or two,
Without-A-SUPER-good-reason – to a-d-just-The-Lever.
We all want things certain – predictable. with-order!
“Make OUR ORDER the same, or-you’re-on-THE-LINE of-THE-BORDER,
Yeah, The Border Line, Baby? You just step OVER HERE!
And-keep-things-as-I-LIKE-‘EM! or I-won’t-call-you-DEAR!”

“ALWAYS MISSING OUT!” a poem February 4, 2019 (Moon-day!)

IF I ONLY REACTED – “better” – and “quicker,”
I’d-be-better-off – but – I’m feeling-a-bit-sicker,
Trying to keep-up – with what-others-suggest?
To help my poor life? – and-make-a-“comfortable nest?”
To fulfill the desires – of Presidents and Kings?
“IF-I-COULD-ONLY-TRY-HARDER!” but-such-stress-this-thought-brings!

Perhaps JUST RELAXING?! “My burden is LIGHT!”*
And – BREATHING-FOR-A-MOMENT – might be beautifully right!

“JUST EASY DOES IT!” a term! demonized,
by: The-World-and-Motivational-Speakers!?
Are we TOO HYPNOTIZED? ๐Ÿ™‚ – Whoa!

ANGELSย love you just the way you are ~ Never try to change an Angel ๐Ÿ˜‡

Do you believe in Angels?

Maybe, some are blessings from the Lord

Maybe, some are animals to keep us company on Earth

Maybe, Children so gentle and pure

Maybe, that person you hardly take notice of when they smile and nod at you

Maybe, that feather that drifts down at your feet you hardly notice, cause you are to closed up with worry

Maybe, all the butterflies that fly around you don’t notice

Perhaps you screamed at God “show me you are real”

Just cause you persevered with the answer to your prayer never having “TIME” TO LOOK AROUND YOURSELF.

First you need after praying for help to look around you and you will find the answer to your praise has always been right there in front of you all the “TIME”

“Ask and you shall receive”

“Ask for nothing and nothing is what you get”

At the end of the day the message here is!

The Lord is testing you.

Are you ready for prayer for your own beliefs or do you deny the existence of a Higher Power in your life.

You are never alone, for he is with you always

Look for all your blessings handed to you by Angeles sent to show you the way.

For the Angeles are your guides sent by The Lord .


Never change an Angel 

Angels donโ€™t change 

You may

 Angels are gifted to us 

Treasure an Angel 

ANGELS love to make you happy 

itโ€™s ok to have an Angel you know

Youโ€™re worth it 

Never change an Angel ๐Ÿ‘ผ

“IMBALANCING THE BALANCE!” a poem May 4, 2019 (Saturday)

Is there PERFECT BALANCE? Well, maybe for ONE TICK,
But-then-you’re-on-THE-OTHER-SIDE of-The-Pendulum’s-schtick!

Let’s say: “When you are BALANCED, your ‘[h][a]um’s’ DIVINE!”
Let’s say: “When you’re NOT SPINNING ONE-POINTEDLY, you don’t feel fine!”

If you’re moving,* the closer to CENTER [that] you are,
The more adequate you’ll FEEL! and, when you’re far,
From the balance of The Blessed Still Center,
And you feel AWFUL! OK, now let’s enter:
The Community of Medical, Specialized Folk,
Who calibrate “back to the center,” but it’s really-more-like-a-joke!

There’s-this-speculation, based on “voodoo teachings;”
Will you go? and-listen to-their-learned-preachings:
And, odds are – you’ll head-back-to-The-Middle, but, without any warning,
You’ll-OVERSHOOT-THE-CENTER , pretty darn quick;
You’ll feel better (for a time); then, you’ll feel sick,
Because-you’ll-be on-the-other-side of-life’s-“blessed-swing,”
Feeling-terrible-again, and-the-doctor-will-bring,
ANOTHER “PRESCRIPTION,” to send you [swinging] BACK again!
“Gosh!” you’ll say; “in THIS PLACE [before], haven’t I been?”

Manipulation! interacting -with-so-much excellent guess-work,
By well-meaning doctors, led by ONE [all-consuming] jerk,
Whose name is ABRAXAS,** a “medical?” “ruler,”
Who LOVES pain and suffering – and RELIEF! What a “fool-er!”

“Abraxas – demands taxes! from ALL [of] His subjects;
You-give: hope-pain-&-suffering, while-He’s-chokin’-ya-necks!”*** The Mystic Poet – and arguably aren’t we all?
** – Abraxas: a name composed of Greek letters, often found on charms, used by ancient “seers!” It has been suggested that the name belongs to the deity from whom all Divine Emanations come! [What this means, I have no idea, but is DOES sound spooky!] ๐Ÿ™‚
*** – and pocketbooks!
