So, I looked at the last post and clearly, you guys like to read the quiet desperation of the illegal way more than any other topic. Either that or you were too ashamed to admit that you read in the bathroom. Well, finding inspiration is hard, so those take a while.

I guess, it is okay. Still, even if one person reads the blog, I feel obligated to give something worth his/her time. At the same time, everyone needs a break from the tortuous poetic beauty of the dreamer experience. So yea, some times I might jump out of character. If you don't like a posts, send me an email. Just challenge my intellect, no one likes meaningless rants.

A-Z Horror In the Throne

So, I was visiting a friend and went to the bath. When going to someone else's bath, and there is a level of trust, one sees things that no person should. It does make you wonder about the other person. 

He had a copy of Clive Barker's A-Z Horror. Who the hell reads a book about horror movies in the can? Although I just adore horror movies, can't get enough of the subject, I cannot imagine myself looking at promotional pictures of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre while doing my thing. 

Sorry, for this rather un-classy subject. Maybe after a long, hard day, he gets into the bathtub for a soak. You know, with the candles and rose petals, maybe a box of chocolates and a detailed account of the impact of Evil Dead in modern horror. 

 Still, whose the weirdo of the story, him for reading this in the bath, or me for finding it strange. You'll be the judge!

Ranting With Style

So, there comes anger, sadness, paranoia and peacefulness.  Like waves, my emotions get the best of me. Right now, I am piss off.

There are many ways of saying what you want, without sounding like a wild teenager in the Maury Show. One thing is to say, “The people who used the flags of the country of origin, did a stupid mistake. They were detrimental in the purpose of the action and harm the overall intended message. If they are not going to help, at least they shouldn’t be part of the problem. Please give a break to us, the ones who are working hard for The Dream Act and CIR and don’t make mistakes like that.”

I agree with that. Also, those who made the mistake would see your point and respect it, maybe change their minds and do marches the right way. More important than posting on Facebook, You Tube or Twitter, speak to the ones who committed the offense. Tell them in their face, that what they did is ineffective.  Of course, that is hard to do, to rant stupid things in the internet, on the other hand, is quite simple.

Just saying “mexicans are stupid for parading with their flag, who the fuck they think they are with their pride they need to march to where they came and stay there.”  

It reminds me of this comment:

 The answer to your question is they don't deserve anything courtesy of the US taxpayer. Millions of citizens graduate high school every single day yet when they prepare to go to college out of state, they have to pay out of state rates. The circumstances of Dreamies are NOT special other than they have managed to lie, cheat and steal in order to obtain an American college degree by any means necessary. They need to take their ill gotten gains and use them to help raise their 3rd world countries out of poverty. But it's easier for them to remain here in all of their arrogance and delusional racial superiority and demand we foot their bills.

Additionally, they claim they can't go back because they aren't familiar with their homelands. Neither they nor their parents were familiar with America but they sure did learn how to skirt every law possible to remain here. Proof that it is not impossible for them to go home and adjust to the country they so proudly support but are too lazy to make liveable. It's much easier to stay here and demand everything after all we've already done all the heavy lifting.

It's time for them to blame and hold their criminal parents accountable for their actions but of course they won't do that because they have been raised to believe that nothing is ever their fault.

Do you really think this person is going to like you just because, you are insulting the marchers…and they call me optimist. Actually, as horrible as the comment is, it managed to be smarter and better crafted than the posts of many dreamers. This comment I can respect, even if I do not agree with it.

On the other hand, look at what did. The whole message was right on the spot; first they only focus on the dreamers. Second, they are only focusing on the positive, which creates a sense of power, energy and momentum, not of failure, resentment and impotence.

If we want to win, this is the type of message we need to craft, as individuals and independent activists of our cause. Who cares if you lose the battle, you will win the war. Isn’t that the goal that matters?
