Rougarou Fest

I wish so much that I could be at Rougarou Fest this weekend!
I hope everyone who goes has a great time!
I also hope that someday soon this amazing festival can be financed
by Bayou Preservation Initiatives rather than the Oil Industry that has
nearly destroyed Cajun Livelihood and Culture, traditionally in Deep Harmony
with Nature similar to Native American Traditions, and the True Cajun Legacy
that this Festival is an important Celebration of.

Today I am posting these images I photographed of Ruins from when
(Audubon) Louisiana Nature Center had been open BEFORE
Hurricane Katrina which remain on the park premises now
that it has re-opened again. I find them Beautiful and
like that their presence tells a Resurrection Tale.

Progress Is Made Through Hard Work In Real Life

On the night of Halloween in 1998, I sat on the ground holding a bloody barely coherent African American Woman in my arms after rescuing her from her Latino Boyfriend, who had been beating her into the pavement, while the EMTs prepped her for the ambulance and I translated for her to the Police Officers BECAUSE THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF HOW WOMEN REALLY HELP EACH OTHER WHEN IN NEED. I deeply appreciate the Police Officer who physically engaged the gang leader who was about to rape and murder me in front of everyone because I'd rescued that woman so that I could instead make it home safely after doing my ACTUAL duty as a Person. I happen to be mostly European American and I have proved over MANY years to NOT be useless in the aid of others especially out on the actual streets during real violence. Even after I had gotten crippled I managed to help get a child rapist pornographer raided and arrested across the street from me around my birthday in 2014. What I have been observing in recent years regarding the "Progressive" Movement is that it has become so sexist and racist internally that the Democratic Party chose Hillary Clinton, who could only be made to seem like a good idea to people with no real political history and in contrast to the violent criminal degenerate Donald Trump, over Bernie Sanders because "old white men are evil" antics despite Bernie Sanders having BOTH strong Democrat AND "Third Party" support (which he got even more of once Trump beat Clinton) for good reason. This is in addition to a multitude of African American Women proclaiming "White" (European American) Women as being useless, especially through social media. I am very tired of so called "Progressive" Sheeple of ALL Ethnicities PRETENDING that Peer Popularity and Solidarity are the same thing when they are NOT, and PRETENDING that Propaganda and Aware Action are the same thing when they are NOT. We are actually LONG overdue for cutting the crap, ceasing the social media tag team games, and diverting funds toward initiatives that DO ACTUALLY REDUCE VIOLENT CRIME (inc. domestic) such as supporting Public Education PROPERLY along with Improved Living Conditions Combined with Accountability for Upkeep to genuinely Elevate the Oppressed and Impoverished, as well as funding and maintaining genuinely safe healthy shelters for those who need to be rescued from abusive situations. Abused Women and Children Speak Out Regularly and GET IGNORED OR DENIED by Family and Friends and Usually Everyone, so Sheeple PRETEND No One Knows About the Problem. It Is Denial. Period. Our so called "Progressive" Political Leaders continue to Allow and thus KEEP the Trump Administration Going Strong despite the fact we have the National and International Right to Defend Ourselves with Lethal Force against the Nazis (as established circa World War II), including Nazis in our own government even though our soldiers fought and died to prevent what is happening now with this, and yet so called "Progressive" institutions state that they have to uphold Freedom of Speech for those Nazis while the Patriot Act established by President Bush Junior remains in place still (no "Progressive' Leaders have had it eliminated as a violation of our Constitution yet) which negates Freedom of Speech for every Citizen in the USA. My observations have led me to conclude that the current "Progressive" Movement started committing Suicide before the Trump Administration began its process of Genocide that has only merely begun. Worst Timing EVER!!! Progress Is Made Through Hard Work In Real Life NOT media and social media antics.

As a Woman I have shown up for the Fight every day just by Living. I'm not Blacking Out now, Not Me.

Social Media Driven Protest vs. Real Action

I find Me Too and the Profile Black Out as offensive as people using Facebook etc to PRETEND to 'Stand with Standing Rock' to show a spirit of support without having to actually be supportive at all WHILE THE ACTUAL PEOPLE ACTUALLY STANDING AT STANDING ROCK WERE BEING SHOT AT AND MUTILATED. While I certainly appreciate the motivations for women who have been and continue to participate in social media driven protests, I have not, am not, and will not participate in Me Too or the FB Profile Black Out or anything similar BECAUSE the men know EXACTLY where all the women are all the time and ALL women really DO know what women go through whether this is admitted to or not. Having been both a victim and a witness to MANY brutal sexual assaults and ongoing severe abuse of many kinds, I know for a fact that social media driven protests are a pointless distraction used to disempower women from taking REAL ACTION to actually stop abuse. I refuse to be a party to the Progressive Movement sabotaging itself from the inside like this across the board. If you want to start a rescue network or a shelter or something real, then please contact me. Thank You.

The Truth Is That We Already Know

Here's why I think 'strength in numbers' via social media is a start but not nearly enough. I have been surrounded almost entirely by men most of my life (especially offline), and from direct consistent personal experience since I was about 10 years old (I'm 45 now) I know that, with very few exceptions (and these EXCEPTIONALLY AWESOME MEN ARE UNDER ATTACK AS MUCH AS WOMEN AND CHILDREN ARE) the AVERAGE male sexual conversation about women and/or children overlaps almost entirely with the same sort of talk on record of pedophiles, rapists, sadists, pimps, sex slavers, and serial killers. I know that the AVERAGE person will get away with as much as they think they can in almost any given situation. I know that most people flat out deny this because they are either afraid of this perpetual and pervasive threat OR they are afraid of being stopped from what they are trying to get away with. I know that most women will desperately cling to men who flatter them and pretend to be supportive when they are actually pacifying women and otherwise just trying to get laid. There's a general sense in our society of a woman's sexuality as a whole not being 'real' somehow until it's been acknowledged and evaluated for better or worse by men, especially for women who are heterosexual or bisexual. What I have consistently witnessed and even personally experienced repeatedly is that whenever the AVERAGE man isn't getting what he wants out of a woman, he proclaims that she's crazy, slutty, and/or deserves whatever abuse she is being subjected to. She can STILL lose her home, her income, her child(ren), etc regardless of legal rights almost entirely on the social bias of the AVERAGE man and ALL the women who would rather compete and cling to their male 'fans' than show genuine support toward other women who are in the same circumstances or worse. Before the Autumn of 2015, I had been celibate for nearly all of my adult life, including when I had been married to an AVERAGE man, because being alone most of the time was the only way I could HONOR my own sexuality on my own terms. My hope is that SOON women will recognize that 'microaggressions' can suddenly escalate to rape and murder, not just among the poor, but just as often among the affluent, well liked, trusted, respected, seemingly so socially acceptable on the surface, and thus able to get away with anything just below that surface. This is true in law enforcement, the medical industry, church, education, etc as well as our neighborhoods and our own homes. My hope is that we can eliminate the 'trendy' aspect of being progressive that is so self-sabotagingly pervasive right now, and start addressing how serious the gender gap really is. A man who should have gone to prison for multiple rapes (including of a minor) has just been made our president instead. So it doesn't matter how many people of any sort you have on your Friends list or how many people post ME TOO when, in fact, EVERYBODY ALREADY KNOWS THE TRUTH ABOUT THIS, and we actually need to do just about every damn thing it might take to MAKE IT ACTUALLY STOP NOW, including the severe attacks on men who are genuinely supporting women and children through this ongoing crisis that has been found in almost every culture on Earth for the past 5,000 years, instead of pretending we still need to 'spread the word'.

Mindhunter

My Daughter Katana and I just watched the Netflix Original Series 'Mindhunter' and it's fucking brilliant! NOT for children at all ever, but definitely something I wish more adults would deal with honestly. This is as much social commentary pertinent to here and now as it is about its declared plot line. I'm very much looking forward to a 2nd season for this!

More Harassment from Facebook

This morning Facebook locked me out of my account, first claiming I might have logged in through a phishing (fake) website and then claiming there had recently been suspicious activity with my account. In each case I was FORCED to change my password WITHOUT typing in my old one first, which I refused to do the first time but had to do the second time in order to regain access to my account at all. This problem occurred after I posted my Spooky Daily when I then went on to try to see what others have been posting. Suddenly I was shut out completely BUT NOT LOGGED OUT. The ONLY suspicious activity with my account that has been going on recently is on Facebook's end not mine.

I Successfully Got to Vote This Morning! Yaaayyy!!!

I am super happy this morning because I was able to vote on local issues at my new voting station according to my new residence, having relocated earlier this year. This voting station was clearly marked as to where to go and hosted by numerous friendly locals. The only disappointment was that I was the only person there to vote at that time. Hopefully more folks will go vote soon! My daughter was able to vote early at a station near her work, so she's already taken care of it. Today's successful voting experience is in direct contrast to what happened during the election that resulted in Trump's 'presidency'. My Daughter was on a business trip and voted absentee, but her vote wasn't even counted until over a week after Trump had been declared the winner. Worse, I was denied my ability to vote at all. I, among other neighbors, went to the voting station assigned to us at that time, and it was closed. Many of us at least tried to report it. Later that site claimed it was open finally, but when I returned to that voting station physically, it was still actually closed. Because that site claimed it was open even though it was not, I was not able to be redirected to a different voting station. Thus, I was denied my ability and right as a Citizen of the USA to vote during the last Presidential Election, which resulted in President Trump and the Nazi he has for his Vice President.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) / 'Obamacare'

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) / 'Obamacare' has been a step in the right direction long over due that desperately needs to be FIXED AND Accepted so that it can Work Great! It does NOT need to be abolished. What many Americans don't realize is that abolishing the ACA will also take away a great deal of VA Care for those who have served our country in the military too. The ACA has been sabotaged inside and out so that plenty of folks think it's worthless and don't realize how much good it's doing even in its completely sabotaged state. It will work wonders for this country if people, especially medical professionals actually start accepting it like they're supposed to AND the ACA administration is managed more competently. We are one of the only developed countries in the entire world that has completely shitty not socialized health care. Even wealthy Americans tend to go to specialists in Japan or Europe to pay for proper health care for serious conditions. We must keep the ACA and turn it into everything it needs to be and will be instead of allowing Trump to continue to flush our country OUT of the First World altogether.

Errata: Irma > Maria

I accidentally stated Irma instead of Maria in my recent post 'State of Emergency' and have corrected my mistake. I am truly sorry for this. My mistake was due to a recently overwhelming amount of Hurricane, Earthquake, and Fire activity, and was not in any way the result of insensitivity but rather the opposite probably. This error should NOT detract from the credibility of the rest of that post. I am posting this formal apology for accidentally stating Irma instead of Maria both because the content of that post is so horribly true and because I care a great deal about those who are still trying to survive after experiencing one of the most intensely active hurricane seasons we are aware of.

Happy Friday the 13th of October!

Trump's Political Prisoners

During the spring semester earlier this year, there were several students just in my daughter's third grade class alone whose homes were illegally raided and parents were abducted by Trump's orders. These parents are legal tax paying immigrants who remain incarcerated illegally as Trump's political prisoners.

A State of Emergency

To quote my Daughter Katana on how She and I Both feel about the current crisis in office: "('President') Trump was on trial for sexual assault of a minor and other women when elected. We have a pedophile, sexist, racist, fraudulent, hate mongering criminal as a the face & voice of our country. He has further put fellow criminals, Nazis ("e.g. the 'Vice President'), fear mongers, human rights deniers, science & Education haters, abusers, & general evil in power. We weren't doing great but this is a huge step backwards. Him and his supporters need to be gone one way or another."
I would like to add that everything this administration has accomplished at unprecedented speed in just the first 10 months of a 4 year term has been a violation of BASIC human rights (including the ongoing illegal raiding of homes and incarceration of legal immigrants who have paid more taxes than Trump ever has in his life, plus the abandonment of the USA slave state Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria's destruction of it so he can get a tax break on his golf course there that has been costing this impoverished place millions of US dollars a year to facilitate against their will) and ongoing attempts to silence authentic science and environmental institutions who can and will (if not destroyed by this current administration) bring us out of the most polluted period in human history and through this climate change cycle into an ECOnomic Renaissance that should and would have happened nearly a century ago if fossil fuel based greed hadn't already usurped the original stage of modern electronic development. Even if we all stopped paying taxes now, Trump can still support our entire federal government out of his own personal finances. I want to point out that the Trump Administration is NOT the Actual Problem. The Actual Problem is that these people were allowed to take up federal governance of our nation in the first place and continue to be allowed to stay in that position of power. Every moment we continue to have criminals (including Nazis, a movement already convicted of crimes against humanity including genocide after WWII) in control of our country we are in a State of Emergency.

Thank You!

I want to thank Blogger AND Google for not doing what Facebook has done today.  I was finally able to get back in and after fighting my posts being deleted and eventually called spam I was actually able to post my article on Facebook that had been suppressed for hours. Hopefully it'll be shared before it's gone. Here it is again just in case...

Medical conditions that all stem from chronic inflammation and / or similar aggravation (e.g. demyelinization / 'stripping') of the nervous system such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Myaligic Encephalomyelitis (ME / “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome”), Vestibular Sensory Disorder, and similar conditions that have pervasively corresponding and overlapping symptoms are consistently caused by a severe prolonged infection: viral, bacterial, and / or fungal. Currently it is mandatory protocol for medical professionals to prescribe steroids, which are carcinogenic, instead of antibiotics, which by definition, despite claims over the past several years, HAVE NO VIRAL IMPACT WHATSOEVER, for chronic respiratory conditions. Prolonged severe viral infections usually result in bacterial infections that go untreated because of this and cause additional severe damage. Antiviral drugs do exist but are usually not available in reality to most of the population, which might be a good thing actually because, completely opposite to antibiotics, antiviral drugs can condition viral strains to 'get stronger' when not effective which would be most of the time because viruses can not actually be 'killed'. A virus is pre-organic, meaning that it contains all organic behavioral potential without actually being alive. Viral 'strains' are actually distinctive strains of viral behavior, which can suddenly and significantly mutate in ways that are very difficult to keep up with, let alone predict. One of the viral strains that concern people even more than most cases of influenza (some of which being lethal and epidemic, such as 'Spanish Flu' just shy of a century ago now) is Cancer. Viral overproduction overwhelms and kills off healthy cells en mass. However, most cancer patients these days survive cancer if treated because most forms of cancer can be removed in a way that patients can survive IF they receive treatment in time. This also indicates that anyting regarded as legitimately anticarcinogenic could potentially also be antiviral with the same risks of probably strengthening the virus rather than somehow overcoming it and rendering it ineffective without killing it (because it can not be killed because it is not an actual organism). In contrast to removing cancer masses, IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO IMAGINE HOW TO CURE VIRALLY INDUCED CHRONIC INFLAMMATION OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM, which seems to be on the rise in a variety of corresponding forms, and are typically treated, when treated at all, with steroids (which are carcinogenic) and / or immunity suppression drugs (which make patients more susceptible to contracting infections in general). The primary cause for this is almost certainly the same cause for the increase in both chronic respiratory conditions and cancer in general: TOXIC POLLUTANTS (INCLUDING VIRUSES, BACTERIA, AND FUNGI) SATURATING OUR GLOBAL ENVIRONMENT FROM THE EXPONENTIALLY INCREASED COMBUSTION OF FOSSIL FUELS FOR BOTH TRANSPORATION AND MANUFACTORING, in addition to toxic nuclear waste accumulation, etc. The burning of fossil fuels (everything from coal to petroleum) releases lethal carbon forms plus viruses, bacteria, and fungi into the air, water, and earth non-stop around the world, and the USA is one of the 'leaders' in perpetrating this crime against humanity for the sake of greed, and people lose their land and naturally sustainable industries all the time due to hostile and / or  seductive corporate takeover of their homelands. It is important to note that the first car was electric, and if we had not been overtaken by the fossil fuel profiteers, we would have had clean, safe, sustainable energy for everyone around the world by the Mid-1900s, and it would not have been related to nuclear power at all. So while tobacco smoking, Catholic, Jewish, Buddhist, and Hindu temple incense, and cattle flatulence are still blamed against all logic for rampant air pollution and related medical conditions, the actual authentic science shows that NEARLY ALL pollution and related medical conditions are caused by burning fossil fuels, and these common distraction tactics actually remain the least insidious of the arsenal used to protect fossil fuel industries. Two of the worst and most insidious tactics are, of course, turning the professional medical industry against the citizens of the USA by direct penalty and threat to medical careers for not cooperating with 'recent data' that makes no scientific sense at all AND allowing public education, which would help prevent people from being duped in the first place, to be properly resourced and develop into the phenomenal resource it actually is for ALL people. This is NOT a covert conspiracy. THIS IS BLATANT UNCHECKED GENOCIDE.

Facebook posts defense

As soon as I was on an important phone call Facebook claimed trouble publicly but only those of us who have been speaking out on specific issues have been effected. Most will believe Facebook probably. It's the easy answer.

Here's what I get at Facebook on my laptop with Wi-Fi working now



Here is why I have no Wi-Fi at home and can't even log into Facebook on my phone data plan now

California Burning

The San Francisco Chronicle is providing the best coverage all over the front page of their website right now of the fires that are destroying my former Homeland, where I lived for 30 years, including raising my Daughter Katana there. On one hand, most of the folks we've known there are basically safe, so that's good. However, due to winds up to 70 miles an hour, the skies have been filling with ash all the way down to LA (Los Angeles, not Louisiana) which is a 9 hour drive away (in good conditions) from Napa and Sonoma. That means severe air pollution throughout a huge state that had only just managed to overcome another prolonged drought with devastating storm floods earlier this year. The San Francisco Bay Area is a huge estuary just like the Lake Pontchartrain Area is here, only even a bit bigger actually, and surrounded by mixed forests that do support some important old growth trees and quite a variety of wildlife. It is as important to the general ecology of everything West of the Rocky Mountains (which go up into Canada) as the Lake Pontchartrain and Delta Region here is to the entire interior of North America. What's happening in my former Homeland right now is Heartbreaking. Today is the first time I've even been able to fully process it. Yet, at the same time, I do not want anyone to let this completely distract them from the absolute Evil that Trump is perpetrating against Puerto Rico right now, not anymore than the umpteenth heinous murder in Las Vegas just this year alone should. Horrible things are happening on multiple fronts, but the worst thing that is happening right now really is still the fact that no one has removed Trump from office yet, and he and his Nazi forces (remember, we already won that war, so there's no reason to lose it now) are only going to continue to make things worse. Climate change is being used as an opportunity to wreak all kinds of additional destruction by corrupt government top to bottom, and it's only going to get worse at the rate things are going right now. So, yes, I am going to make time to mourn my former Homeland, but don't think for a moment that I'm losing track of what the worst trouble actually is.        http://www.sfgate.com/

St Berthoud Cemetery

Today I am sharing one of my favorite images of St. Berthoud Cemetery, photographed by someone who was fortunate enough to be drifting by it on a boat in the Barataria. From a Vauderie perspective, the Ancient Sacred Native American Mound in the Center of the surrounding Cemetery has a magnificent Old Oak Tree that has grown out through the top of it over the centuries: Tumulus, Temenos, and Nemeton combined, hidden within the Bayou that winds through the Forest, a Sanctuary well - suited to the Goddess Nantosuelta. Her Consort Sucellus, Patron God of Hunting, Fishing, and Subsistence Farming, as well as the Guide of Departed Souls to the Otherworld, is also well represented here by the combined communities represented at this site (Native American, Cajun, and Metis). This is one of the most Sacred Sites in Louisiana. It must be preserved and protected always.

The Cemetery Hidden Beneath the French Quarter

Today I am sharing three articles about St. Peter's Cemetery, the Oldest Cemetery in the French Quarter, which, once it filled up, was followed by St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, the Oldest Extant Cemetery. In St. Peter's Cemetery everyone was actually buried in the ground rather than interred in tombs above ground, and I do mean everyone of every ethnicity and mix there already was during the 18th century (1700's) here. I love that this cemetery is hidden beneath a block of buildings in the French Quarter. I love that this cemetery debunks a lot of local misconceptions while offering a whole new bundle of intriguing mysteries. Maybe someday I'll be lucky enough to sit on the edge of the Pool of Souls in one of the many courtyards on top of St. Peter's Cemetery and touch the Watery Rippling Veil between Us and those First Ancestors of the French Quarter. Vive Les Premiers Ancetres!
