So far, to my utter shock, I have received over 2500 responses to my blog-most responding to my blog about “Hiring A Document Examiner/handwriting” and the various forms it has taken but other blogs as well on related topics
I am at a loss to explain the overwhelming response, but not only do people seem to like what I am saying, but the level of acclaim blows me away and I am overwhelmed with gratitude which is pushing me onward.
When others ask me how they can write like I do, all I can say is “speak from the heart and tell the truth ALWAYS in a nice kind way. Be grateful and appreciative for the priase and kind words of others. It may very well be that the truths I am speaking touch peoples hearts since, unfortunately, many don’t get to hear the truth much anymore. Watching TV or following ANY media for that matter is a waste of time when looking for the real truth, you only get the truth that others want you to see ir hear or read.
Update July 22, 2014-Since writing this Blog on March 20, 2012 I have come to the realization that viertually all of the almost 600,000 responses are pure garbage written by robots. It is impossible for me to determine how many, if ANY responses are genuine, which is why I have asked that people actually call me or send an old fashioned letter if they REALLY have something useful to say or a legitimate question. As I said in a previous blog, sadly, the internet is loaded with parasites.
But this does not mean that what I have said here is not valid or does not represent how I truly feel. Its just that, it seems, my blog is nothing more than a very public diary where I am basically talking to myself. But that is OK for a couple reason: 1-it helps me to organize my thoughts and gives me plenty of practice. Who knows, SOMEONE else may actually read it and find it useful or helpful in some way.
The MBA’s have taken over everything. They spend their days on their super computers trying to squeeze another 10 Cents from the public whose income has been on a steady slide since 1974. Read Robert Reisch’s book “Aftershock”. It WILL shock you!!!
So the wealthiest of the wealthy manipulate us to get more and more money and power as we get less and less and our choices become less and less. Having recently “beat” cancer, the thought came to me that cancer cells can’t be very smart as they adapt to whatever medical science throws at them. If the cancer kills its host, it kills itself-STUPID!!!!
As I have alluded to before, a result of this manipulation and control is that the legal system is simply not available to ever increasing numbers of people and like cancer, is killing itself. It is not always the lawyers fault either. People look for lawyers to take, what they believe, is a great case on contingency because they can’t afford to pay the lawyer. They relinquesh control of their own case when they do that. But the averge lawyers are in the same boat as many in the middle class. They simply can not afford to take a case on contingency where there is , in their mind, even a remote chance of losing because they will have put out a lot of time and money and will have nothing to show for it, while the wealthy litigant who CAN afford the top lawyers-Ie Insurance comanies for example, will persist in defending what they KNOW is a losing case because they know the poor litigant will not be able to continue and will be forced to settle for a pittance of the true value of the case. But hey, that is our system today—the end result is the courts are dominated by ever increasing wealthy people arguing with each-other like children. And where are the judges?
You would think that judges would understand this and try to balance the scales of justice, but as I was told in my own disability case(I filed a claim under my own private disability policy to collect on an accident that prevented me from doing my work for months) “The Insurance Company has the right to litigate” to which I responded to the judge in his chambers-looking him straight in the eye: “Yes judge but they don’t have the right to LIE and manufacture a false defense that they know is false because the litigant-me-can’t persuade my attorney, working on contingency to jump through the myriad of hoops created by the insurance company and spend a lot of time and money to prove the lie” while the attorney twists the client’s arm before they invest too much time in the case so they can move on to the next client. The name of the game for the wealthy and powerful is “Stonewall”. We need a system of “loser pays” such as is the case in England , then plaintiffs will only bring strong cases and defendant will have to settle fairly lest they risk losing everything. The rest of the cases can be sent to binding arbitration. But all of this is another story for another blog.
You see, rather than do the right thing anymore, this ever increasing Plutocracy we find ourselves in, thinks they can buy their way out of anything and they have no trouble sleeping at night–or maybe they do and it will eventually just wear on their psyche and their dog will sense it(marvelous beings they are for detecting our lies) and reject them.
This is the trouble with lieing. It just eats away at you and you have to tell an ever increasing number of lies to deal with the first lie. This is why I just LOVE Harry Truman(my previous blog: “Damn it-why don’t we just tell them the truth”)
Now as usual, I have strayed, but these things are important when it comes to writing a Blog. Our blog gives us the chance to tell the truth to the world as we FEEL it in our hearts-which ALWAYS knows the truth. Our intuition is seldom wrong.
Remember, a blog is NOT a a scientific treatise. That’s why they have scientific journals. A blog is not an advertising program-that is why they have internet ads on Google.
A blog is a place to tell the truth as we see it-to exercise our “so-called” rights of free speech, but only if we are poor(As Bob Dylan said: “When you ain’t got nothin, ya got nothin to lose”) or if we are rich and can sue into oblivion anyone who doesn’t like what we are saying even it IS a total lie. Most other people can not afford to tell the truth, but if you really think about it-we can’t afford NOT to. The consequences are far worse.
Am I beginning to sound cynical? Let’s face it: Does the First Amendment really exist anymore? Did it ever? Look at the recent controversy over the simple word “black” uttered by Billionaire Sterling. If you say something that someone who has power over you doesn’t like, they could find a way to separate you from your job or your position, or your membership in a prestigious organization, or as with Sterling, ownership of a multi-billion dollar team(boy does that sound crazy-a multi-billion dollar team-no person should be aloud to have that kind of money to manipulate everybody)and on and on. So what are you going to do? Hire a lawyer? Good luck. As frightening as that sounds, it is a risk we must all take, otherwise we will live in servitude to our fears and once we allow fear to grip us, our lives are over. Roosevelt was right: “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”
The scope of injustices in this world are immense and will NEVER be addressed but we tend not to care about everyone’s injustices-just ours-a concern that will certainly limit our lives if we just look the other way.
Again, am I being cynical. I think not.
My dear sweet mother had the answer and she drilled it into my head from an early age. Whenever I encountered a brick wall-an insurmountable obstacle my Mother’s comment was there: “Remeber, Bob the constant drip of water can wear away a stone. Look at the Grand Canyon”. That is why “The Shawshank Redemption” is my all time favorite movie. For those who haven’t seen it, I won’t give it away.
Remember what I said earlier. Your dog knows you are lying even when nobody else does. Well almost all people who live a lie have one thing in common-guilt. This also includes hiding from the truth as well. Like the drop of water, if you remind them of their guilt, then maybe, just maybe, the walls will come crashing down.
So you want to write a blog? Have the courage to look for deceit in hidden places and expose it. Don’t be afraid. God is with you. Be sure of your facts then lower the boom. Maybe you too will get 600,000 useless responses too.
There is an old Jewish Prayer that goes something like this-A Prayer for Insight(from memory)
The days pass and the years vanish and we walk sightless among miracles. Lord, fill our eyes with seeing and our minds with knowing Let there be moments when your presence like a bolt of lightning suddenly illuminates the path down which we walk. Like a light being shined into a cave it is instantly illuminates it no matter how many years it has been in the darkness. So it is also true with out minds. Many people live in total darkness-darkness of knowledge, darkness of spirit, darkness of love and on and on. Just be ready for that bolt of lightning to come and illuminate your life no matter how many years your soul or psyche have been living in darkness. God wants you to act not only for your own salvation, but the salavation of humanity.
THAT IS WHAT WE ALL NEED TO DO IN OUR BLOGS-LOOK INTO OUR HEARTS AND FLASH A BOLT OF LIGHTNING ON THE TRUTH. GOD WIL PORTECT YOU HE HATES DECEPTION.
