IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING (REALLY?) RANT

SINCE IT NEVER DOES!

It is time that someone confront this very commonly used phrase. The phrase “it goes without saying” needs to be spoken about. Well, if it wasn’t for me this would continue on in lingual limbo. It is very common for someone to use the phrase “it goes without saying” and following it with an explanation or reason to justify why something that does not need to be said be spoken about. Listen! I’m trying my best to understand this language (my 1st), and write it properly. There is no need for these phrases to add to my confusion. If it “goes without saying” —— THAT SHOULD BE THE END OF THE STATEMENT, NO?!?!?!?

LET ME ADD TO THE LIST OF SAYINGS THAT ARE FRUSTRATING

  • YOU HAVE NO IDEA – 
  • YOU DIDN’T KNOW –
  • YOU SHOULD HAVE KNOWN –
  • WHAT DID YOU EXPECT –
  • YOU DIDN’T SEE THAT COMING –
  • IT SHOULD BE CLEAR BY NOW –
  • DO I REALLY NEED TO TELL YOU – 
  • YOU’RE NOT GOING TO WANT TO HEAR THIS – 
  • YOU CAN’T SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU –
  • YOU DIDN’T WANT TO LISTEN –
  • I TRIED TO TELL YOU –  

I’LL START WITH THOSE!

LET ME PUT TOGETHER A LITTLE RANT ON THOSE SAYINGS- JUST FOR FUN!

 DO I REALLY NEED TO TELL YOU? —  I guess I better, so YOU CAN’T SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU!

I wouldn’t want you to be in a position that YOU DIDN’T SEE THAT COMING

After I TRIED TO TELL YOU, I assumed it would be CLEAR BY NOW, maybe, YOU DIDN’T WANT TO LISTEN, OR ONLY HEARD WHAT YOU WANTED TO HEAR!

At first, I DIDN’T WANT TO BE THE ONE TO SAY, and even told you that you HAVE NO IDEA.

Knowing you WEREN’T GOING TO WANT TO HEAR THIS, I couldn’t leave this as something THAT GOES WITHOUT SAYING

I was not going to be responsible for an accusation later on saying YOU SHOULD HAVE TOLD ME / WHY DIDN’T                YOU SAY SOMETHING

FOR CONSIDERATION-

IF YOU ASK – WHAT DID YOU EXPECT?, OR YOU DIDN’T SEE THAT COMING? YOU BETTER MAKE SURE YOU TOLD THEM WHAT THEY NEED TO KNOW. EVEN IF THEY DIDN’T WANT TO LISTEN TO WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY. OR, decided to HEAR WHAT THEY WANTED TO HEAR. At least now you can say these with conviction  —

YOU CAN’T SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU

YOU DID’T WANT TO LISTEN

I TRIED TO TELL YOU

SOLDIER (1stDraft-unedited)

SOLDIER

A soldier may represent their nation with pride.

To protect, and defend the country that they reside.

This fight may occur outside their borders

They are simply following the issued orders

When danger is present on the battle field

It is the soldier next to them that they will shield

Giving up their life for the soldiers who naturally would do the same

Something difficult for those at home to sustain

Trading their life for those in the combat zone

Instead of a concern for those back home

Do not let this cause you to easily confuse

Without a consideration to this in other views

If a different situation resulted in their survival

Others demise may have contributed to their arrival

Just remember to use this thought

Before judging actions by those who fought.

Another Rant On Language

OH HERE WE GO

     Hopefully it is clear by now, my complete and absolute hatred of the language and words! This is not a result from being  uneducated(I think the colleges should reimburse us) but thats another topic!…..  Even my poor writing skills (openly admit and am aware of) can not be fully or mostly responsible for this…..

.HOW COULD ANYONE REALISTICALLY COMPREHEND THIS LANGUAGE? Is it only me and my limited literary skills that I find it completely ridiculous and aggravating that the meaning of words are (inconclusive) through definitions? Almost every word is defined by multiple words, each of the defining words have a somewhat different directional meaning themselves. It’s difficult enough for someone like me (with little or no writing skills) beyond psychology papers…. But, those were mostly constructed through precise and specific words created by the field of study and only need to use some “regular”  language  or words to connect/fill in. Also, we didn’t lose that many points at all for writing skills, grammar —– they only were interested in the content material and information.

You could almost say something like —— It is by the no way thank of thought to assume presumable no doubts  that prefrontal cortex function is directly involved in processing —  lol  YES MY UNDERLINE PORTION WAS MAYBE A LITTLE EXTREME OF EXAMPLE ( BUT AS LONG AS WHAT IS BOLD, AND THE ACTUAL INFORMATION IS OK, THAN SADLY THEY WOULDN’T CARE OR PENALIZE YOUR GRADE ENOUGH TO MAKE IT SEEM NECESSARY TO LEARN HOW TO WRITE PROPERLY)

Let me choose some words for example (not going to get into grammar , structure) Just a few words or statements

I’m going to try my best to “act naturally” (how can you be natural if your acting?)

Let me be clear that I’ll always try to provide “original copies” (copies- original? need i say more)

It is starting to get “pretty  ugly”

Simple——- is defined “understood, no difficulty” also defined as “abnormally low intelligence” So, something simple is understood without difficulty but, a simple mind might not be able to…..

Understood?  Just as long as you realize the definition of “understood” doesn’t mean “you get it” you may understand something, as long as you are aware that if you understand you don’t “know”—- because the definition of understanding something refers to you only perceiving — blah blah OK I’m done for now, before I get sick….. lol

GETTING CONTROL HAS BEEN SOLVED! (QUOTE)LOL

WHEN I HAVE HAD ENOUGH WITH WORDS I TURN TO MUSIC… MUCH EASIER!

WHEN I’VE HAD ENOUGH WITH WORDS…. I JUST LIKE GETTING LOST IN MUSIC   547543_10152074953761084_658755681_n 942178_10152079902196084_916253398_n

SUPER STORM SANDY! CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S BEEN OVER 2 YEARS!

So many people were effected from Sandy, and sadly still are! As terrible and destructive as the storm was, It wasn’t the initial storm damage that caused the most devastation for those who were in her path. No one was expecting the tragedy and real devastation that was to follow many months and years after.

Many people (myself included) who lost their homes from this storm had begun coming to terms with their loss and displacement as the clouds cleared and tide receded. Expecting this was only going to be a difficult, but, temporary situation. Especially for anyone like myself, with a mandatory flood insurance policy to cover us in these unfortunate events. We all accepted that having a waterfront property comes with certain risks of flooding (and so does our mortgage companies) which is why we were required to purchase a separate flood insurance policy. I personally never had a problem with being required to pay extra insurance for having the luxury to live waterfront.

Now that it has been over two years since the storm, you would think that at the very least rebuilding would be underway, if not complete. It isn’t! The flood Insurance policies which was held by and paid to (FEMA) were not exactly “going to pay”. There isn’t any other way to say it, since they haven’t actually given a legitimate or direct reason why they didn’t have to cover this.

They did step in and offer some funds for rental and living costs while people were “temporarily” displaced, but that was some time ago and limited. So, as time went by, and more time went by, some of the people just gave up, walked away from their homes. Some people used their own money to rebuild (hoping, and expecting to be reimbursed in the future). Than there were others that if they had the time, began the never-ending process of paperwork and filling to receive the funds to rebuild what they were rightfully entitled to.

There was a fund/grant that eventually came through (for anyone able to wait this long). So, funds did come through to rebuild and cover you for what you were already insured for. Now, there was one other thing that seems to be an issue. It wouldn’t be right to assume that everyone who had lost their home in the storm (meaning it was completely gone/inhabitable) would stop paying their mortgage. Even though it makes sense to me that if your home no longer exists, than there should be no reason to pay the mortgage. Especially, if you consider the actuality of the bank holding the mortgage on the house is the owner (NO)? You would think they would be fighting to get insurance to rebuild or make “their property” in which they hold the note restored to regain the mortgager payments. Well, not only did they not fight for their property, they continued to demand payments, charge interest, and threaten foreclosure for non-payment. Forget morals, ethics, and what should be considered illegal collection practices. There should be some legislature or bill that restricts these banks from even asking for payments from victims of a storm that NO HOUSE exists! What is even more disconcerting is the banks charging interest, applying delinquent reports to credit agencies, and proceeding to foreclose on these people.

It’s alright that the banks were bailed out back in 2008-2009 from their real estate disaster. But, it is not ok for someone who was paying their mortgage on time for 5, 6, or 10+ years to get a “temporary” hold until their house was rebuilt!

HYPOTHETICALLY IMAGINE THIS SCENARIO !

IF EVERYONE WITH A MORTGAGE ACROSS THE ENTIRE COUNTRY COLLECTIVELY DECIDED TO STOP PAYING? I MEAN – EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!

WONDER WHAT WOULD HAPPEN ? HAHA

I KNOW WHAT WOULD HAPPEN……. THEY WOULD HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO MAKE A SOME KIND OF DEAL WITH US (THE MAJORITY) WITHOUT THE MAJORITY MAKING OUR PAYMENTS THE SYSTEM WOULD COLLAPSE IF THEY DIDNT WORK OUT A DEAL WITH US.

THEY MIGHT HAVE ALL THE WEALTH- BUT ONLY AS LONG AS THEY HAVE US PAYING AND WORKING FOR THEM >>>>>>> TOP 1% HAHA – THAT MEANS THEY ARE SEVERELY OUT NUMBERED ……..

“THE WIZARD OF OZ” MY CRAZY INTERPRETATION- OR NOT-

POSSIBLE PSYCHOLOGICAL PERCEPTION TO THE STORY OF “THE WIZARD OF OZ”

This one of those things that came to me out of nowhere, completely unexpected, and have no idea what caused it to pop up! Whatever the reason, I began seeing a very legitimate and rational psychological application that my interpretation of the story seems to fit.

IT’S BEEN MANY YEARS SINCE I’VE WATCHED IT….. EVEN STILL, I’M PRETTY SURE THIS IS HOW THE STORY GOES SOMETHING LIKE THIS-****READ MY UPDATE I PUT IN THE COMMENTS**** I WANT TO KEEP MY ORIGINAL POST UNEDITED… ANYTHING I’M GOING TO ADD AFTER WILL BE IN COMMENTS SO I CAN KEEP MY ORIGINAL UNEDITED VERSION 

AFTER SHE LOOSES CONSCIOUSNESS! AFTER THE TORNADO

Dorothy, is following the yellow brick road leading to the Wizard of Oz in Emerald City…. Along the way she comes across a Lion, Scarecrow, and the Tin Man…

These characters (INSIDE HER MIND) all were missing something! Courage, a Brain, and a heart…… da da da da dah…..

-I’m not even going to get into the wicked witch (neighbor toto bit before this unconsciousness), or the relevance of any other characters (right now) ! lol

BUT!

PUT TOGETHER ALL THE “TRAITS” OR “NEEDS” OF HER “UNCONSCIOUS””FRIENDS” AS SHE FOLLOWED THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD…. JUST THINK ABOUT THESE TRAITS/QUALITIES BEING APPLIED TO AN INDIVIDUAL—- IT’S LIKE THIS STORY WAS A DEPICTION OF PSYCHOLOGICAL COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY, OR AWARENESS. LOL  ——

(THE ROAD LED TO THE WIZARD, AND IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY, THE WIZARD WAS ACTUALLY NOT EVEN A WIZARD AT ALL! -THANKS TOTO!- HE DIDN’T GIVE THEM ANYTHING EXCEPT FOR RECOGNITION THAT THEY ALREADY ATTAINED WHATEVER IT WAS ON THIER OWN DURING THIS JOURNEY….) NO? YES?

BUT!

RIGHT AFTER THAT, SHE JUST WANTS TO CLICK HER HEELS TO “GO HOME” TOO MUCH FOR HER TO HANDLE I GUESS….

MAYBE, SHE COULDN’T HANDLE BEING IN A LOGICAL AND MENTAL STATE OF COMPLETENESS – BECAUSE SHE REALLY JUST WANTED TO GO HOME! WHERE EVERYTHING WAS “NORMAL” AGAIN LOL

FOLLOWED THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD ALL THE WAY TO THE ANSWERS, AND THE GREAT OZ!-

THAN RIGHT BACK TO -“THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME”

— THIS SEEMS TO STILL BE A COMMON BEHAVIOR FOR PEOPLE….. PUTTING IN SO MUCH EFFORT TO FIND AN ANSWER TO SOMETHING THEY MOST LIKLEY WON’T BE ABLE TO ACCEPT, THAN TURN/RUN AWAY FROM IT SO THEY CAN  RETURN TO “NORMALITY” … BUT AT LEAST THEY KNOW THE ANSWER LOL
