Old Genesis Begets Odd Genesis?

`

Since January 1960, one dozen men have taken the Presidential Oath of Office and, once ensconced within the White House, they’ve all unpacked plenty of baggage; the type not necessarily quantifiable by calipers and scales.

Yep, character flaws did surface, ranging from Ho-Hum harmless to OMG grotesque. And owing to this phenomenon, far too often their work output suffered. Even the best intentioned of them (e.g. John F. Kennedy, Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama) found it tough to advance agendas designed to work towards the betterment of society.

With each successive (oft regressive) regime change came the accompanying, ever lengthening laundry list of woes as will soon become evident below.

As a student, whose public school and college education heavily focused on higher mathematics and the sciences, I could not help but notice how, with each successive line of typed text, there was a resultant curve effect; reminiscent of plotted data on the graph’s X and Y axes; it’s downward slope eerily similar of those frequently accompanying studies that map out sociopolitical / socioeconomic ruin.

BTW, while this curve does “plot out” well on my homepage, as of my posting time, it’s uncertain that it’ll appear similarly offsite. Anyway, a mere “homeward bound” click can easily remedy whatever issues that may arise. That said, check this out…

The Tale of the Ungoverned Governor

`

As many of us already know, multiple women have accused the now ex New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassing and/or manhandling them.

“Specifically, we find that the Governor sexually harassed a number of current and former New York State employees by, among other things, engaging in unwelcome and nonconsensual touching, as well as making numerous offensive comments of a suggestive and sexual nature that created a hostile work environment for women.” [read full article here]

State Attorney General Letitia James’ investigation

Constitutionally, Cuomo would be presumed innocent until proven guilty, however, he has, in essence, already self-implicated; whilst publicly, lamely fessing up that he was raised to be a touchy-feely type of guy.

Even sleazy screenplays and pulp fiction have taught us how socially unacceptable the bad guv’s M.O. has been; how such conduct could’ve even gotten him bounced from strip clubs.

Truth be told, long before that satyr abdicated the governorship this past Tuesday, he had already resigned from civilized society.

The irony, here, is that had Andrew Cuomo coupled his celebrity status with a more patient, respectful, gentlemanly manner, he’d have found a woman to willingly return his affections.

Could #MeToo Have Called Out JFK Too?

 

#MeToo’s exposure of predatory males has been providing society a long overdue, much needed and invaluable wakeup call. For raising our awareness, we must extend our commendation, compassion and recognition to all the victims… as well as remind anyone, who has yet to speak up, to never suffer in silence.

While the high profile predators, typically, have been grabbing much of the media headlines, we must never forget that underreported, lesser knowns also employ the the exact, same sexual harassment, abuse and assault MO… indeed, such deplorable conduct spans and spoils workplace environments everywhere.

While it’s been disconcerting… at times painful… to witness once-upon-a-time respectable men being stripped of their sheep’s clothing veneer… see their lives and livelihoods in crash and burn mode… we must NEVER FORGET they have no one to blame but themselves… and they fully deserve society’s justifiable wrath. The #MeToo movement is absolutely correct to demand that blame be affixed where it truly belongs… upon the guilty predators and NEVER upon their totally innocent prey.

Of course, if we ever hope to cure society of such ills, our work has only begun. Parents must learn to raise their daughters to never take any predatory crap from anyone! Parents must learn to raise their sons to behave more respectfully and sensitively… not only within our workplaces but everywhere else, too.

More to the point, males must become fully aware of what a vile hormone testosterone can be… how… left unchecked… it can prod the weak-willed to go on a totally unacceptable and uncivilized biochemical rampage.

Let’s now expose the H-Word… Hypocrisy.

In my past posts… I’ve mentioned two males we / I used to admire… accused actor George Takei and the now convicted comedian / actor Bill Cosby. What makes such blogging especially difficult and distressing is how both talented guys used to be positive role models. Of course, big and small screen celebrity must never act as a smokescreen defense for inexcusable behavior. Moreover, even when they do wind up uttering their regrets this should be met with our skepticism. Are they truly sorry or merely sorry about having been caught?

Deconstructing this further, historically speaking, it’s already been a tough enough task to convince the narrow-minded not to judge entire demographics based solely upon the behavior of few bad actors. But, now that the malignancy of Takei and Cosby has tarnished the images of countless others, respectively, the vast majority of benevolent LGBTQs and racial minorities, the task of enlightening homophobes / xenophobes has become doubly (if not more) difficult. Doubtlessly, such predatory conduct can only (unjustifiably) perpetuate, their flimsy, eons old, negative stereotypes.

To avoid the stench of hypocrisy in all of my posts… I cannot continue to call out sexually predatory conduct (in general) and (more specifically) the present-day, so-called prez’s self-admitted misogyny and alleged infidelity until I turn my back on a past president who I’ve idolized since I was a young boy… one John F. Kennedy.

Misogynistic society has oft employed euphemistic terminology… e.g., dalliances and womanizing… to describe / downplay / romanticize JFK’s conduct. Romanticize? YIKES!!! Even had the sex been fully consensual, how could anyone ever deem it acceptable? One must never rationalize / dismiss the emotional abuse, pain and distress he must’ve inflicted upon his wife, Jacqueline. Even if an on-the-rocks marriage had been no fault of his own, a considerate man would’ve patiently awaited the official divorce decree.

To reemphasize and expand upon my earlier statement… celebrity… even martyrdom… cannot and must NEVER excuse caddish behavior.

Furthermore, were we to ever scrutinize / dig deeper into JFK’s life, times and untimely death… how could we ever say, with any certainty, that his surviving family members hadn’t used the considerable Kennedy wealth to commission and handsomely pay off some ugly history revisionists? For all we know, the Warren Commission, investigating the events of Friday, November 22, 1963, had gotten it all completely wrong.

Perhaps, the so-called, lone gunman in Dallas, Texas, in reality, had been the pissed off husband / boyfriend of one of JFK’s conquests?

Considering the testosterone poisoning, which fuels the typical satyr’s MO, perhaps the conspiracy theorists have, all along, been spot on with their contention that the lone gunman had plenty of armed company… i.e., plenty of other PO’d husbands / boyfriends had been figuratively and literally gunning for JFK?

 

 

More “Dirty” Limericks re Donald Trump

 

During Donald Trump’s hot-miked bus ride,

To Billy Bush, he did smugly confide,

How he’ll coax and coerce,

Kiss and grope… do far worse,

To his attacked female victims, worldwide.

 

To all women, Trump thinks he’s “God’s gift”,

To say the least, his ‘tude makes women miffed,

He forces kisses on mouth,

Violates them, down south,

And once he gets off, he casts them adrift.

 

To get down to the crux of the matter,

Donald Trump is a crude, smutty sătyr,

That prez wannabe jerk,

Is Not Safe For Work,

He’s risky biz for your on-the-job chatter.

 

Donald Trump hates all women the same,

He’ll assault, insult and body shame,

They’re to him, cuts of meat,

To abuse and maltreat,

He’s bankrupt, despite his wealth and fame.

 

Don Trump’s sex assaults / cussing, non-stop,

Present mega-probs for mom and pop,

That sex fiend, so uncouth,

Robs their kids of their youth,

He batters them, with his X-rated slop.

 

Hey Americans! Don’t sell your souls,

Moral values MUST trump, Don Trump’s goals,

DO NOT let that wretch slaughter,

Your own Mom, Wife or Daughter,

Keep that in mind… as We head for the polls.
