CONSPIRACY WORLD: WHY WE THINK THERE IS MORE TO THE STORY

“Their side and the truth”


what they don’t tell us

We have always been amused by the conspiracies that are put out there on the internet. I myself have spent countless hours on a conspiracy theory loop on the internet. But how much of these stories are factual and how much is just giving the government way too much credit? Because to me, there are very small aspects of these conspiracies that are real. Yet they have been hyped to make people feel there is more goin on in our system than what actually goes on. So why do we want to believe that there is more goin on in the country or in the world? And a lot of it has to do with the way we have been programmed to live.

we are the toughest

The United States government has had so much power for so long, it strikes at the very core of someone’s psyche. But that doesn’t mean that the country does not have blind spots. Because what is stopping me from committing a heinousĀ  crime tomorrow? Well, there is nothing can stop me from doing so. And there lies the blind spot of the country. In order to stop something then we would almost have to know who, when, and where it will happen. And since our system is so successful and powerful, we assume the government is on everything. And when they are not, there must be something to hide. When in reality, we are all humans. Yes there are smarter baboons, but they are still baboons.

too real to stomach

Imagine if no conspiracy theory is true. To me it wouldn’t matter, but for so many who think there is a constant conspiracy, then their life ceases to exist. They need a reason for why things take place. And without a reason, the randomness of it all scares the hell out of people. That would mean, even with all the protection our country has, we still get caught with our pants down. So letting people stay wrapped in conspiracy world might be helpful. But even if we wanted to do something, people have their belief systems and will never change them.

WAITING FOR MARRIAGE: SAVING SEX FOR MARRIAGE IS NOT GOOD

Close-up of Woman Holding Condom

“Don’t do it to yourself.”


holding out

The idea of waiting until you’re married to have sex is still a requirement for so many people. And the reason so many still do is because of their moral code via religious beliefs. But there are some fundamental problems with this belief. And the reality is that sex is a very nature activity that is a contributor to your overall happiness. So when your sex life is bad, then you could run a risk of living an unhappy life. This is something that no matter how strong your belief nature has a way of over riding the feeling you get from spirituality. So why do people hold out knowing it could be this problem once they do have sex. Or better yet, what do you do if you get a partner that is less than adequate?

what to do what to do

When you wait until you’re married to have sex the main problem that arise from this would have to be who suffers if it’s not good? In the case of men, we are able to still find a way around a female who is a bad lover. Since we are so driven through the physical sense, we can make things work. Because we not only can teach a woman to be better, but we enjoy being the teacher. Now on the flip side of things, sex is a lot more emotional for the woman taking part in the activity. So being in a marriage with a man who is a virgin, she can’t quite enjoy like we can. If you are unaware or unsure, she loses interest. And if you are a woman waiting for sex until that marriage point, you most likely will get hurt. Because now you have to figure out how do I stay faithful and deal with bad sex for life.

trivial, sorry, it just is

With all that is going on in the world. You have wars, famine, poverty, political corruption, diseases wiping people out, and not to mention a rock in the form of the end of the world that narrowly misses Earth. Now you have this mind that God is watching how you use your penis and vagina. It just makes the idea of God sound silly. And for the most part, religion is very centered on self. I believe in this because of everything that could be watched I am being watched. Humans are one of millions of species, but we are the ones watched the most. So to me, you are depriving yourself of living your best life because you are bound by the unknown. And to be honest, most people who divorce will admit that waiting was a big mistake.

BORIQUA: THE U.S. CITIZENS OF ANOTHER COUNTRY

 

Man Standing Near Puerto Rico Flag

“For the love of the island.”


the island

Puerto Rico has long been a country that is a territory of the United States. The only Latino men and women who are legal American citizens. And also have long been a culture of very proud group of people. But over the past couple of years, the island is still ravished from the hurricane that hit, wiping out so much of the country’s infrastructure. Since then, the people of the island have gone through so many economic issues. And a cause for concern is what will be the future of the island. Many have said it is time that Puerto Rico become a 51st state which will mean a large aspect of the people’s culture lost. Since it is a country, they have an identity that far exceeds their identity just on U.S. soil.

still latino

Due to the illegal immigration concerns which forced countless people from their homes and into mini detention camps, there has been a lot of support from all Hispanic/Latino people. And one of those groups of people were Puerto Ricans. Now, you have people who actually state that these two groups are not the same. So why would Puerto Ricans get involved in this fight. A statement that is seen as divisive. But what you don’t understand is, is that Puerto Rican people know that if people had it their way, they wouldn’t be allowed in the country either. Because yes, what Mexicans are going through, there have been those that feel Puerto Ricans should not be given citizenship and have their own country. So there is an alliance that exist because at the end of the day, both groups are grouped into Latin America.

bleak future

For now, who knows what is to come for Puerto Rican people. The island is still destroyed after the hurricane and there is no real look of change for the island. But there are a lot of people who are hopeful that the island will eventually make a turnaround.

LOVE OR SOMETHING KIND OF LIKE IT: THE BUSINESS THAT IS MARRIAGE

Man in Black Long-sleeved Shirt and Woman in Black Dress

“Forever, not quite.”


what is love

What is the definition of love? Love is a deep affection or an intense feeling of pleasure one feels from another or people. So to put it simply we love those that directly effect our lives and contribute to it for the better. Sometimes this is biological and others times it could mean something else. But to me, love is not deep affection or intense feeling of pleasure. To me love is a conditioning of ones behavior based on past, present, and future behavior. We base our love on the things that people say to us and do for us. There is a me in all of this because if it’s not benefiting me why love someone. And that benefit can come in many different forms. And you can’t love everyone because not everyone is contributing to your overall positive quality of life. So how do we define how to love and when to love someone?

friendships and relationships

People come into our lives at different points and we define those coming together times with each other as likeable. It develops into love once they have consistently showed their affection over time. How do you know it’s love and not lust. Well, you have those nostalgic moments where you remember the good they have brought into your life. Then you think to yourself, “that is why I love them.” Lust is a deep sexual desire which tends to be temporary. The memories that last forever define your relationship with them. But being friends and the love of a monogamous relationship is different. The love you get in a monogamous relationship has a degree of intimacy that involves sharing your body in a manner that is sexual. And this is where you separate those you date from the those you friend. Yet, what is it about the dating love that turns into marital love? And is marital love really love, or is it something more?

getting hitched

To be in love with someone is to be in a constant state of fear and emotional security. That to me is insanity because how can you feel afraid and yet secure at the same time? It’s because the love is on a very conditional basis. And that marriage is really not love, yet it is more of a construct that is based around love. A construct that grants you the ability to love someone so long as they provide you with the tangible security in conjunction with intangibles to keep them interested. Or better put, love is emotions you feel, only the obligations of the love contract that brought you together keeps being fulfilled. So if money brought you together, never lose money. If physical brought you together, stay looking hot. Now, let me be clear, when we first meet, we are pure physical. But in the course of the relationship, you are supposed to look at other things as a means to make it work. And whatever those things formulate in to, is what the condition of love is based around. So if it starts looks and, then formulates into caring for me when others won’t, you will get sick in marriage and remember, “Oh, sticking it out through sickness was something that made us want each other.” If the terms are based on a pretense that you know to be false, your marriage will get tested. And you will fail the test because it was a lie to begin with.

unconditional is not real

If I break your heart, will you stay or go. Most people say I don’t no. Then you know what, your love is not unconditional. Because infidelity is a condition to end a relationship. When you love without a condition, there is nothing that person can do wrong. But we all have a condition, and for most people the condition is living out the terms of our relationship contract under the guides of love. Love, honor, and obey is a vow we take. But that simply means to stand by me with the same consistency that we dated. But most people don’t stay bonded like they did dating, so the marriage starts to get stale. Then you head for divorce or have a boring life. There is infidelity that occurs which is receiving that affection outside the marriage when the terms are not met, or shutting down and hurting your own happiness. Does that mean, for example, when men cheat we feel unappreciated, few do, most of us do it just cause. But unconditional is not real, it is just a figment of our conscious that we aspire to become while as a creature of the natural world, we are packed with conditions that if not met will end a marriage. So basically a marriage is a contract between two parties who intend to keep their promise of love which could expire at any moment if the terms of the deal are not felt met by one or two parties. What the hell type of ambiguous bullshit is that, BUT IT’S REAL.

TOXIC MASCULINITY OR FEMININITY: WHAT IS THE AGGRESSION REALLY?

Purple Liquid Poison on Brown Wooden Surface

“Manhood is not what you think.”


the aggression is real

Have you been hearing the phrase “toxic masculinity?” And if you have, do you know where it comes from? A lot of feminist may think that it is coming from growing up in such a male dominated society. But the reality is that the toxicity is worst today than in the past. Now most would say that is because men are losing power and women are gaining. This is in my opinion is not correct. Well, then the bad behavior stems from a history of bad things that males do in the name of boys being boys. In my opinion, I think that the emotions of so many young boys are not male but to a degree feminine. Now, what do I mean by this, well look no further than the boys who grow up without a father.

the ones without fathers

I grew up in a household where my mother raised my sisters and myself as a single parent. And when this happens a lot of times, the parent is not ready for the uphill battle of being a parent. One of those areas is when a mother has to raise a boy. She is more than prepared to teach her daughters the ways of society, but there are clear fundamental aspects about manhood that she cannot teach to her son. See you might think he has a good job, dresses nice, and talks nice, but that is just the basics of being a responsible adult. The animal that is man and the animal that is woman need to align with each other to work especially in a relationship. And because women are not aware of what really makes us who we are, boys make vital mistakes when trying to be boyfriends and husbands that can annoy and irritate a woman. It’s because we are still learning how to be men and the woman in our lives are the crash dummy.

from her through us

As a young child, my mother would cry when she was hurt so I cried. Her aggression was my aggression, and her happiness was mine. But then you step into society and realize, wait a minute, men and women don’t have the same emotions. Sure we cry and show happiness, but context means everything. Boys raised by mom tend to exuberate the qualities of mom which in turn are feminine. We get angry and react the same as women react. But real male anger in its most natural state is not overly aggressive, it’s actually poise until it needs to get to the point of aggression. For example, a woman argues with a man, he typically stands there not saying much, which annoys her in the argument. Rest assured, he is angry, but only after a while does his energy match the woman’s because it has been brought to that point. Boys who go straight to aggression don’t have the male who understands male aggression to calm him appropriately. And a lot of times we boys raised by mom grow full blown from moms imagination. So the energy is not masculinity, it’s feminine energy. It is scary and masculine because our bodies are stronger and voices are deeper, yet it’s feminine emotions. And a boy with emotional reactions he has seen mom exuberate used in society is more dangerous than a girl stepping into society with the same emotion.

the prisoners rationale

Now, for those still unsure as to what I have said prior, look at prison inmates. For the ones who get turned out in prison, or taken advantage of sexually. You would be surprised how many of them carry that aggressive energy. A lot of the time they do. Well, why would a guy who is that aggressive be seen as a prey to another man? Here is why. Because when a man is kept back and observant he is unpredictable. When a guy is rough and aggressive, society sees him as scary, but a guy in jail sees feminine energy. He’s exemplifying female sexual energy that little do he know has caught the attention of another man. And if we know anything about that energy, when you crash and you will crash from that high, the human is capable of being manipulated. This is why women take the man back over and over again in relationships. Prisoners can manipulate that crash and before you know it, you are in a world wind romance being comforted by a significant other. A relationship has been cultivated unbeknownst to yourself because you had not masculine energy, but unchecked feminine energy manipulated by a real man who knows where it came from.

RED STATE, BLUE STATE, NOW GREEN STATE: THE SHIFT COULD TAKE PLACE IN THE FUTURE

Image result for GREEN PARTY

“Vote for the peoples’ good.”


generation good

As I walk the streets of New York City, you start to see a generation that is already starting to bring to the forefront a movement of their own. And that generation is a young group of high school kids that are very much so into the green push. They are geared toward not only a nonviolent society, but they are into the well-being of nature. These young people are promoting the nurturing and preservation of our planet. Not long ago there was a rally to promote more of a checks and balancing of how our civilization should watch over the burning of fossil fuels. Which ultimately is leading to global warming and a shift in our climate.

where does it come from

When you look at the climate of politics, we always look at how everyone is going after Donald Trump, but it is seen as an adult push. Not many young kids really care because they witnessed Obama but don’t quite understand the push right now. So to them it could be seen as not their agenda, so they want their own young agenda. And Donald Trump may not be seen as something they are concerned about. And with the climate change, not many adults are interested in this agenda. Now there is a lane for them to be apart of. How do you not go with them, considering there are a lot of problems with the climate change.

climate

Each winter it seems like things are getter warmer and warmer. Here in New York City, I only remember getting a small amount of snow. And yes, the winter was still cold, but the fact that snow is disappearing means something more sinister. So yes, there is something to be said about how our climate is changing. And once that happens, melting polar ice is releasing in the ice bacteria that have been foreign to our species for thousands of years. And the majority of these bacteria there are no cures for because they have been unknown for so long.

FAST FOOD IS GOOD FOOD: AMERICA’S OBSESSION WITH EXPEDIENCY

Hamburger and Fries Photo

“I want it now!”


next window please

Whenever I go to the McDonalds that is across the street from where I live, I always think, “What can I get for this few bucks and I hope it’s fast.” Because the worst feeling is going to the restaurant you wanted to go to and then realizing that the wait will be a stretch. But think for a minute, if you cook at home, you’re talking about a 1.5 to 2 hour meal. So to complain about a 10 to 15 minute, is just flat out ridiculous. But that is why we call it fast food, it is supposed to be quick and easy. But then you have to sit for a moment and think about the implications that arise from quick and easy. Meals that you prepare at home, they are far better because you have to add your own seasoning. This way you can have it taste the way you want it to taste. But like I said, what are the issues that arise from fast and easy.

food first health last

If you go to a fast food restaurant, just look at the menu and check out the ingredients; the sugars and salt intake. You would be surprised how unhealthy the food really can be. Some of the salads have more sugar in them than the deserts. And you probably think to yourself, how the hell is that possible. Or better yet, a Popeyes salt intake is posted on the menu which clearly explains to you how the food can lead to stroke or heart attack. And these are the items on the menu that we love the most. And no one thinks twice before ordering, as a matter of fact, I don’t even think people care about the intake of unhealthy substances. Yet on the other hand, do we owe the people some form of responsibility? Because it doesn’t matter if you post it, there is more that needs to be done.

i’ve got places to go

I work an overnight job and I have places to go when I awake. So the idea of cooking each night is just not possible. If you are someone with a hectic schedule, then eating on the go is necessary. Especially if you have children, you have an even harder time coming home cooking. That should be an incentive to cook, but working for both parents makes it hard. Yet, we can’t help ourselves, especially if the food is good. For example, I could eat Chipotle everyday if I could afford it. And the food in Chipotle is healthy to a great extent, which is probably why it is so expensive. And with the state of the economy where we have to work more, fast food will grow even greater.
