before you “PLEA”

Before you plea-bargain or enter a plea of not guilty…think about this…

If you are truly not guilty what are you pleading for? If you honestly and truly not guilty than don’t “plea” not guilty….. Challenge the accusation that is being applied to you. If you “plead” your are asking for acceptance to not guilty rather then  STATING you are not guilty.

If you are not guilty say you’re not guilty and they have to prove otherwise. Don’t beg or “plead”  to the court that you’re not guilty tell them that you’re not guilty.

It’s like that saying “I’m not even to justify that with an answer”

If the charge or allegation is ridiculous you’re not going to justify it with an answer, because that would show you are defending it. If you’re not guilty challenge the allegation don’t defend an allegation that is not true. Don’t try to defend a position that doesn’t require a defense, reverse it and challenge the question is being applied.

In simple terms let me ask you this…….

If you are not guilty would you rather PLEAD not guilty, or SAY you’re not guilty?

If it ever comes up in the future would you rather say that you plead not guilty, or you told them that you were not guilty?

One last thing. If you are not guilty wouldn’t you want the court to a knowledge that you were not guilty rather then it “accepting” a not guilty plea?

PERSONALLY I WOULD WANT WHOEVER TO AKNOWLEDGE THAT THEY WERE WRONG AND I WAS NOT GUILTY, RATHER THAN A QUESTIONABLE PLEA.

BUT, HEY,,,, WHAT DO I KNOW???? I DIDN’T GO TO LAW SCHOOL LOL

IS THE LAWYER OR THE LAW SCHOOL RESPONSIBLE ?

THIS IS NOT REFERRING TO ANY SPECIFIC LEGAL MATTER

Attorneys have devoted a significant amount of time and money to obtain their law degree. Usually a Doctor of Jurisprudence or Juris Doctor. Whatever the degree/title or “State BAR” requirements are to “practice” law are, I have a question. ———-

WHEN A LEGAL REPRESENTATIVE REJECTS THE LAW BECAUSE IT CHALLENGES THE “NORMAL SYSTEM OF CONSISTENT CONFORMITY”, IS THE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM GUILTY AS WELL AS THE INDIVIDUAL ATTORNEY?

This is a complicated subject, but is one that is important. There is no doubt in my mind that there are great attorneys out there, and regardless of great resistance and being ostracized they still challenge certain issues that majority would/could not. The numbers show that it is “SYSTEMATIC” NOT TO GO TO COURT!!!!!

IF YOU ARE GUILTY, A PLEA IS A GOOD DEAL!…… IF YOU ARE INNOCENT, THE “SYSTEM” MAKES IT PUNISHABLE TO PROVE IT IN COURT.

WELL THIS IS INTERESTING 

In the fiscal year of 2010-2011 (July 2010 to June 2011), the trial courts (circuit and county) in Florida disposed of 2,774,302 civil cases (not including probate, family court, or civil traffic infraction cases). Of that, only 1,049 were disposed by a jury and only 4,348 were disposed through a non-jury or bench trial. So out of all the cases disposed during the 2010-2011 fiscal year, less than 0.2% made it to trial. As for settling prior to trial, just looking at Circuit Civil alone (not including probate, family court, or civil traffic infraction cases), 9.9% of cases settle prior to other disposition and 1.2% settle through mediation. So nearly 90% of all civil cases in the state circuit courts (not including probate, family court, or civil traffic infraction cases) fail to settle or make it to trial.

I’m not a attorney, I have no “formal” legal education. That being said, I find it unacceptable if I speak with an attorney or other legal official that do not know the legal statute/code/law/amendment/terminology….. ect…. BUT STILL CLAIM TO KNOW IT AND/OR APPLY IT WRONGFULLY -THEY SHOULD JUST ADMIT WHEN THEY NEED TO RESEARCH IT OR DOUBLE CHECK IT——–

THERE IS SO MUCH COMPLEXITY BEYOND THE JUST THE “BASIC” THAT I WOULD UNDERSTAND THEM NEEDING TO CHECK!!!!!!!

IT DOESN’T MAKE THEM INCOMPETENT WHEN THEY ARE NOT SURE ABOUT SOMETHING, BUT, NEGLIGENT IF THEY PROCEED REGARDLESS

LIKE MEDICAL DOCTORS 

WE TRUST THESE PROFESSIONALS WITH OUR LIFE!!!!!

ASK QUESTIONS, GET 2ND OPINIONS 

Chime in !!!! No!!! I’ll explain (RANT)

I’m starting to understand why people do not speak much anymore. As I research into defining a lot of this goofy language its becoming very clear that we ought to consider a complete and total destruction of it and form a new one. All literary material and dictionaries should be burned and outlawed. lol

Here is one example:

When someone would like to chime in to your conversation. Usually they politely ask if the may chime in.

Just more proof that people have no idea what they are saying!! This is not a big deal to anyone else because they themselves don’t know what is being said to them.

I’ll admit that I never knew what “chime in” meant, but I also never would say that or anything else that I do not have a least a general understanding.

My way of saying this would be direct. If I was politely asking- It would be “I’m sorry to interrupt, do mind if I join in this conversation?”

If being rude – it would be “Sorry, I have to stop you right now and tell you ….”

get the point?  Well take a look and realize that “chime” is actually irritating and offensive by definition lol

So, I found a better alternative to “chime”.

TONE LOL

LOOK AT THE DEFINITIONS AND YOU DECIDE.

CHIME
verb
1 the bells began to chime: ring, peal, toll, sound; ding, dong, clang, boom, bong; literary knell.
2 the clock chimed eight o’clock: strike, sound.
noun
the chime of the bells: peal, pealing, ringing, carillon, toll, tolling; ding-dong, clanging, tintinnabulation; literary knell.
PHRASES
chime in “Yes, you do that,” Doreen chimed in: interject, interpose, interrupt, butt in, cut in, join in.

NOW DOESN’T THIS SOUND LIKE A BETTER ALTERNATIVE TO CHIME?  

TONE
noun
1 the tone of the tuba: timbre, sound, sound quality, voice, voice quality, color, tonality.
2 the somewhat impatient tone of his letter: mood, air, spirit, feel, sound, flavor, note, attitude, character, nature, manner, temper; tenor, vein, drift, gist.
3 a dial tone: note, signal, beep, bleep.
4 tones of burgundy and firebrick red: shade, color, hue, tint, tinge.
PHRASES
tone down the pastels in the upholstery will help to tone down the color scheme: soften, lighten, mute, subdue, mellow; moderate, modify, modulate, mitigate, temper, dampen.

What I love about Quotes (Creating them not copying)

There is something about a well designed quote that I can’t begin to explain. THIS WOULD BE A PERFECT EXAMPLE TO CREATE A QUOTE. Because, I could go on and on for pages explaining this or if I phrase my quotes in such a way that the words strategically selected and positioned can explain 20 pages of thoughts in less than a couple sentences. ………..A good quote to me has not only content, it also has interpretational depth with layers for those analytical people like myself to discover.

JUST TO REMIND EVERYONE- I HAVE VERY WEAK WRITING SKILLS, AND VERY TO NO EDUCATION IN ENGLISH REGARDLESS OF MY EXTENSIVE / EXPENSIVE COLLEGE EDUCATION. SPELLING, GRAMMAR, PRONOUNS, ADJECTIVES ADVERBS, ECT……. I WOULDN’T PASS GRAMMAR SCHOOL LOL…… GOOD THINK MY FIELD WAS PSYCHOLOGY WHERE THEY WERE NOT VERY CONCERNED WITH WRITING ABILITY.

I DO BELIEVE THAT BEING OVER ANALYTICAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL APPLICATION TO WORDS, TONE, STATEMENTS, ECT PLAYS IT PART IN MY STRUGGLE WHEN I WRITE. I COULD SAY SOMETHING OUT LOUD PERFECTLY, YET ONCE I PUT IT ON PAPER OR TEXT THAT IS WHEN MY STRUGGLE BEGINS. **KNOWING THAT THE READER IS OPEN TO INTERPRETATION BASED ON THE WORDS THEMSELVES DISASSOCIATED FROM ANY EMOTIONAL OR PERSONALITY THAT GIVES THEM MEANING. OTHERWISE THEY ARE JUST A COLLECTION OF LETTERS, WORDS, SENTENCES.

SO, AN EXAMPLE HOW I WOULD TRY TO QUOTE THE ABOVE

“A DICTIONARY CAN PROVIDE A DEFINITION TO A WORD, BUT, ONLY A PERSON IS ABLE TO GIVE A MEANING TO A WORD”

ARE YOU INTERPRETING RESPONSIBLY?

FIRST A LITTLE BORING SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND

Music and emotion
Music is capable of producing some of the strongest emotional reactions in humans, whether it’s joy, sadness, fear or nostalgia. It’s interesting to note than people from a diverse range of cultures and backgrounds will often agree on whether a piece of music sounds happy or sad – for this reason music is often considered the universal “language of emotions”.
The idea of music as language is more accurate than it might first seem. When we hear music, our brains are imposing structure and order on a number of distinct sounds so that we experience them as a whole. It’s a perceptual illusion that changes what we hear, much as we don’t “hear” spoken language as a series of vocalisations – instead, we hear the meaning of the words.
However, music is much more rooted in primitive brain structures than language – structures connected with motivation, reward and primal emotions. For instance, that urge to get your shake on on the dance floor is caused by neural oscillators synchronising with the pulse of the music,
causing us to unconsciously anticipate when the next beat will occur. When the beat falls, our brains give us a small ‘reward’ hit for anticipating it correctly.
There’s no strong scientific agreement on why music has such a powerful ability to conjure up the same images and feelings, even among different people with different memories. The appreciation of music involves a complex combination of the brain’s memory, language, auditory and emotional centres all working together – perhaps it’s simply this satisfying, harmonious brain-exercise that gives us the pleasure response.

TAKE A LOOK/LISTEN TO THESE EDIT VERSIONS OF MOVIES TRAILERS AND HOW DIFFERENT THEY ARE INTERPRETED …. !!!! KEEP THAT IN MIND WHEN YOU WATCH THE “NEWS” OR ANYTHING YOU READ, HEAR, SEE ….

OUT HERE WOULD CAUSE YOU TO DROWN

REMEMBER I AM AT THE MERCY OF OTHER FORCES

I THINK ARE FAIR IN DISTRIBUTING MY RESOURCES

AS I TEMPORARILY RETREAT

DO NOT THINK THIS CONVERSATION IS COMPLETE

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

Perception differences by photography display (This is not a great example) but you’ll see

REAL QUICK

I JUST WANTED TO SHOW AN EXAMPLE OF HOW OUR PERCEPTION CAN BE “INFLUENCED” THROUGH WHAT WE SEE, OR WHAT IS SHOWN…. OH….. ALSO WHAT MAY NOT BE SHOWN

THIS  IS THE FULL PICTURE I’M GOING TO USE FOR THIS EXAMPLE—LOOKS CLEARLY LIKE THE WOMEN IS BENING ARRESTED

perception(original)

NOW IF I JUST CROP HER—– IT IS A COMPLETE DIFFERENT PERCEPTION, NO? ALMOST A PASSIONATE LOOK UP INTO THE SKY SEEING -WHATEVER

Perception1

NEXT CROP- SAME LOOK FROM HER- BUT THE OFFICER IN THE BACKGROUND HAS A LOOK OF SHOCK, AND EVEN WHEN I INCLUDE THE OFFICER THATS MAKING THE ARREST (CROP OUT THE LOWER HALF) THIS STORY LOOKS LIKE OR COULD BE PERCEIVED AS —– SOMETHING DRAMATIC HAS HAPPENED, AND THE WOMEN IS GAZING UP, THE OFFICER BEHIND IS JUST IN SHOCK, AND THE ARRESTING OFFIER MIGHT BE CONSOLING HER….

LOL
