2020: Not the Year of the Man!

"Women learned to reason and reckon, to weigh and
measure, to be analytical. Global society via customs
and educational process have tried to erase that and
exchange it with 'good secretarial duties,' the ability
to 'follow instructions' coming from a man . . .  but
I believe we’re at the end of that 'subservient' back-up
role that women . . . and people of color have been
made to play in our society."

It’s enough that as a nation we are confronted by the “blind hatred” which unquestionably fuels Trump’s White backlash, yet, to confront this monster with vengeful “blind rage” wouldn’t be the answer my friend. Instead those of us on the ideological “left” in this split down the middle pie chart of a empire have to think with our “heads,” and not our “hearts.” Intellect and intelligence over emotions and passions is the mindset we must adopt and embrace if we want to unseat this wanna-be tyrant from his white ivory throne.

Common sense dictates an all female Democratic ticket for President - be it Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris or . . . I do not give a damn. What I do know is “right here n’ now” is the time n’ place for women to step-up and snatch the reins of power and control from men and save this empire, save this planet from the deeds of men.

Seize the time lady!!!

Look, I’ve been a man all my life, and I’ve passed the half-century milestone a few miles ago, so I’ve a understanding of my environment - I see what’s going on - men are killing us as a species - our inability to think with both our heads and hearts, and to instead be oreoccuoid with our own individual prosperity and the concept of being right, of winning- at all cost, coming out “on-top” by any twisted and diabolical means we recklessly and carelessly deem appropriate - yeah, this Fred Flintstone mindset is killing us.

Life” is more than merely bitches and money.

Instead of being fixated with “getting rich, or dying” in the process, which has been the selfish process for male dominated Main Street, Wall Street , the Back-street, down-the-street, across-the-street and down-in-the-alley all my life - we as members of the global community, as an American people need to gain an understanding of “One for all, all for one!”

TEAM” - Together Everyone Accomplishes More.”

It is my belief women will lead us to higher, common ground - the promised land of a peaceful and prosperous coexistence - harmony, prosperity and security. It is my determination, my summation that women have the intestinal fortitude, the innate courage . . . the internal balls, (ovaries) to do the “right thang.” They’ve the “grit,” the determination and drive - all the “right stuff” to get it done. They’ve a level of “intellectual curiosity” of which men have attempted to dismiss and deny, as if we’ve some monopoly on “deep thinking” - please look around, this isn’t a world constructed by “deep-ass thinkers.”

Guys thinking with their “dicks” yes, “deep-ass thinking” . . c’mon man, I think not

My hypothesis: women are the historical” underdogs” in a “dog eat dog world” due simply and merely upon size, i.e., physical strength and ability to impose one’s will. Based upon how we’re constructed men tend to be the larger of the spices, and like the Tiger who killed his date/potential mate a few days ago . . men have, in a only recently slightly civilized world, ruled by “might,” by fright, intimidation, i.e, absolute audacious power. To survive this global-wide madness women had to, were forced/compelled to construct a means of surviving living with a asshole.

Women were deemed incompetent and unable until they demonstrated otherwise and proved their male naysayers dead wrong - women from all cultures and races had to deal with and overcome that neanderthal male mindset - and I’d add it left them with a “team” mentality which understands where they've been, where they won’t go back to - despite the yearnings of weak, insecure men. “Small-penised” men, both mentally and physically speaking.

It is what it is bruh . . . . .

Women learned to “out-think” us, they figured-out to employ what they did have, everything but a physical advantage to survive, to thrive - women learned to negotiate, to improvise, to compromise, to think of the “big picture” to see “down-the-road” to delay “instant self-gratification” so all the kids could go to college . . . so all can prosper.

Women learned to “outwork” men. That’s right boys. They’re not afraid to get their hands dirty.

Of all that - women learned to reason and reckon, to weigh and measure, to be analytical. Global society via customs and educational process have tried to erase that and exchange it with “good secretarial duties,” the ability to “follow instructions” coming from a man . . . but I believe we’re at the end of that “subservient” back-up role that women . . . and people of color have been made to play in our society.

A century ago only white men could be President, or a doctor, or a lawyer, or a cop, a fireman . . the list is endless of what men, and particularly in this nation, white men said, dictated, mandated that they alone were equipped to do . . . drive a forklift, operate a jackhammer . . . use a piece of chalk as a classroom teacher - times are changing, thank the gods . . and with that change I believe should come a President for these no longer even jokingly referred to as “United” states of America, before it’s too late.

Women have been the backbone, the spine, the head and heart of most good men, families and countries - it is what is, In my guesstimation/summation women “get shit done.” It’s that simple. And, it’s undeniable, James was all-so right we do dwell “in a man's world . . .” and this is a scary as hell place. Men have created a “doomsday scenario” for the entire planet - 3 or 4 dudes, the Kings of White men, Yellow men and Brown men are sitting atop nuclear arsenals, from submarines to missiles to suitcases . . . everybody and their mommas got a nuke - this is the world men have hand crafted where all the “unwashed” masses of little people fight over the crumbs falling off the table’s of robber-barons, aristocrats and oligarchs.

This insanity must stop for our children's children to enjoy what we’ve come to know as a life.

Women, our mothers, wifes, sisters and daughters must save humankind from men. That’s it - just as you save us in childhood, married life, at work - you name it boy. Ask Louie and Ella . . .

Woman may born you, love you and mourn you
Your mammy is first to name you
And she'll tie you to her apron string
Then she'll shame you, she'll blame you
Till your woman comes and claim
s you.
