have the wonderful capacity
to appreciate again and again,
freshly and naively,
the basic goods of life,
with awe, pleasure, wonder,
and even ecstasy."
A.H. Maslow, psychologist
from my little book: "Nothing is worth more than this day."
was it worth it Jussie?
this morning, this girl is just wondering, if he's wondering, if he would do it all over again?
Jussie, reportedly, made $20,000 dollars per episode, having also a net worth of about half a million dollars. And, as the story goes, this whole fake hate crime started because Jussie wanted a raise...and he decided to let his hatred for Trump fuel a dramatized attack.
It didn't take long before the Chicago Police Department put the sordid pieces together.
And how about that Jussie presser?
“I’m left hanging my head and asking why,” Johnson said.
“Why would anyone, especially an African American man, use the symbolism of a noose to make false accusations? How could someone look at the hatred and suffering associated with that symbol and see an opportunity to manipulate that symbol to further his own public profile? How can an individual who’s been embraced by the city of Chicago turn around and slap everyone in this city in the face by making these false claims?”
“Bogus police reports cause real harm," Chicago Superintendent Eddie Johnson goes on to say (and just in case you didn't watch it, Johnson is African-American).
And so -- flash forward -- Jussie is now facing multiple felonies, possible jail time, a humongous bill from his slate of attorneys to keep him out of jail, fines from the city of Chicago, and most definitely, when it's all said and done, an uphill battle finding a new career and earning anything close to that sweet twenty grand a pop......
And on top of all that, Jussie's reputation and honor destroyed.
And not only that, a self-actualized person never would have gone down this path.
As I turn on my radio -- Rush is talking about this very topic, again and again, circling around the story, the newfound facts, the staging, the motives, and attacking this from all sides...it's just what he does, right? and boy, does he do it so well.
This morning, the Rushbo is saying that, quite possibly, that Jussie's antics may have been purely a political move -- just doing his part to wreak havoc on the Trump Administration, attacking the so-called racist, homophobe-in-Chief more than anything else. And he just may be onto something.
The Left, as a whole, has been growing more and more bold in their methods of ridicule, using harmful rhetoric and a host of organized radicals, against the opposition...nothing matters, not even the truth, as the end justifies the means. The irony about Rules for Radicals, is that, in reality, there are none.
Wasn't it just yesterday, we were talking a little about common sense....yeah yeah, Martina...sharing her opinion about transgender "women" playing against real, naturally-born women, and how unfair that was, how physically unfair.
how hilarious, this Jussie, and his clear absence of half a brain -- writing a check for the services of posing as a couple of muggers? Seriously? And oh boy, how that got a couple of laughs from the mouth of Charles Barkley...um, "America, do not write checks when you commit illegal activity!"
Thanks, Barkley...thanks for the rather twisted advice; it's just a plead to use your common sense, no harm, no foul, using Smollett's idiocy as the punch line.
Latest news, Jussie has been erased from the final five episodes. Just like that. Reminds me of how Hollywood treated Kevin Spacey...his fate, not fake.
Oh my gosh -- did you hear the news about Robert Kraft? ew...you would think, if he were to participate in the illegal act of hiring a prostitute, he would astutely and shrewdly take the higher, more private, path...perhaps finding a discreet madam in the area to make the proper connections.
Now -- for the record -- I wrote that down BEFORE Rush said it outloud --
but no matter...we're both on the same team. teehee
But omg -- Kraft has been charged with soliciting prostitution!
And a seedy place it is, too -- a long running sting has been going on, finding sex trafficking and all kinds of illegal activity.
After being at the top of the world -- having yet another Super Bowl win under his belt -- he does this to celebrate? Seriously? Did you write a check, too? To risk whatever life and reputation acquired to date with this? ...what a dumb-ass.
Not only that, a self-actualized person never would have gone down this path.
Have to ask ourselves, what was missing from their lives, to act out in such a desperate, destructive way? What did they not possess, on the inside? Apparently, for all intents and purposes, their outer persona and presentation to the world presented a living breathing lie. This Jussie and this Kraft, seem to be missing something in a pretty big way...
as in maybe, something to do with this little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine....[now that's just a beautiful boy story...you must read all about it.] As in, GOD IS the Great Actualizer and Equalizer in, and around, and through, and of, this whole world, make that universe.
And if they are not missing something on the inside -- then what made them do it? What would make them think that their pair of deceptions -- both unique to their situation -- would go unseen? To think, they were thinking -- ironically, logically -- that they could secretly get away with it....
the thing is -- in the light of this new day -- it must be said, that, eventually, over time, maybe even over a couple of weeks -- the truth always rises to the top, indiscriminate of title, income, color of your skin, or net worth (with, or without, applying Maslow's hierarchy of needs, let alone a good dose of reflection and reason before acting).
Big mistakes, we all make a few.
Big mistakes, we all make a few.
So for a second thing, it could just be that all of us have something in our shadow; nothing like the present for a good long heart to heart with the One who Knows everything, and pray that we all get the help we need, or long for, in one way or another. And to God be the Glory.
so here we are; at the end of the day, this is simply blog 983, signing off.
Make it a Good Day, G
