The J.P. Lynn Guide to the Internet

Sometimes someone say it all and all you want to do is agree with the point without too much fanfare, Or you just want to share. In a nutshell that is what I did with this post. Plain and simple

 

"This is why you're broke!"

Rule1.PNG

**Internet rule #1 – never argue with idiots.

How do you know an idiot?

They’re trying to argue on the internet.

**Internet Rule #2 – never tolerate a pitch for a pyramid scheme or MLM scam. (when they out themselves, post their profile name, put them on blast and block them as well)

We at BKF University, have no time for your malarky with these schemes in our already struggling community.

**Internet rule #3 – learn how to spot a “hood unicorn”. If you don’t know what a hood unicorn is, you’ll just have to take the L. Or you can keyword search some of our previous posts.

**Internet Rule #4 – Use the internet to educate yourself. But NEVER EVER read the comments section. Only read well thought out articles acting as their own responses by people who reveal their identities. Everything else is arguing and bickering by racists…

Nothing to Hide, Everything to fear Black in America

There was a statement in:

The Profits of Religion: An Essay in Economic Interpretation

By Upton Sinclair

If you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear.

As I look at my Facebook timeline, I see an incredible amount of posting concerning the  rampant civil rights of many American citizens. Of these posting the majority are People of Color.

There was an old statement from the american 1960 which stated “The Revolution will not be Televised”. Thanks to social media the revolution will not be televised but posted  via the internet, But, I don’t think so, the tipping point is upon us.

Civil Rights 2.0 may be required to  suffer a great deal more collateral damage to really get the attention of the American Public. My reasoning : The majority of Americans are way too comfortable in whatever level of lifestyle and far too timid to change anything, besides the channel.

Police are killing people unjustifiably. The reason we have not seen an outrage of mass scale are for several reasons.

1. The killings not close enough to any large group to make a significant social impact. ( sad but true)

2. Too many people believe verbatim the presentations on television and media.

3. The I’M Good factor ( which means it ain’t directly affecting me).

Since Trayvon Martin’s death I can stop thinking about the growing number of senseless beatings and murder aimed dominantly at American men of color.

Its crazy when a person freaks out a little just to see a police officer while driving, simply because an encounter with a police officer may be fatal to one’s health.

Thinking back about a year or so, the topic of  bullying was all the rage. This is the ultimate for of being bullied. Where are those people who were making noise then? Hip Hop  and marginalized people have been reporting inappropriate police behavior of this nature for years and people dismissed or ignored their claims because it did not have an impact on the dominant society. I  seriously ask you, what are we to do to address this murderous situation? Is it not enough to enslave people in the for profit prison industrial complex, because if you read the constitution there is ONE legal form of slavery in America. So since the prisons are at capacity just start killing people of a particular ethnic demographic unjustly.

In my head, in my heart, I just want to have the opportunity to strive for and live the American Dream without being paranoid of those who are slated to Protect and Serve.

 

What the F#^k happen to us.

Nick Cannon in white Face.

Johnny Weir

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian uproar

Rampant self absorption and  bitchassness in America.

HELP MY SANITY, I just want to turn on the Television and be somewhat entertained without having my intellect insulted.

So I watched Blue Jasmine to see what the hoopla was all about from the Oscars (which I did not watch), thanks to Netflix. Left unimpressed after the viewing Blue Jasmine. I must say Cate Blanchett did a great job playing a delusional white woman who fell hard to the economic status of most Americans. The movie, Blue Jasmine was one of those occasions where the previews misled me, or maybe was pissed a bit because I just did not like the ending of the movie.  The movie left me uninspired, not really entertained, but I did like the acting. I give it THUMBS DOWN. (Just my opinion)

After watching Blue Jasmine I tuned my TV to NBC because its one of the best HD channels my DIY HD antenna receives. With nothing better to do until my engagement later in the evening, I watched Access Hollywood and quickly began to contemplate suicide, because of the most useless information ever to be broadcast on syndicated national television.

People should be in an uproar by the sheer mindless unimportant bullshit these so called media people produce. I could give an absolute shit about Anna Wintour’s decision to place Kanye West and Kim Kardashian on the cover of Vogue magazine. Many of the people in the United States don’t have access to the products in Vogue magazine anyway so, who cares who is on the cover. Most people don’t buy the magazine anyway.

Here is the conversation of any substance concerning  Kanye West and Kim Kardashian in my circles, and it is in the form of a single question. “Why would you marry and have a baby by the chick who is in your circle for having video sex with a D-list celebrity and having a huge booty?” end of conversation.

I should have just turned on Pandora instead while throwing darts , but I didn’t, Access Hollywood then showed some guy Johnny Weir and the abuse he suffered by his husband. While domestic abuse is not tolerable and I wish no one in this world should ever experience, why do we care specifically about Johnny Weir?

There is a someone in this country who is suffering serious domestic abuse with no where to go because of family obligations, a crappy financial situations or limited opportunity. Why don’t these programs show stories about these people who are suffering, they are just as important as Mr Johnny Weir. Do something to stop domestic violence like providing jobs and education for people to really have the ability to pull themselves up by their boot straps. Do something like give them boots first, metaphorically speaking.

People are tripping because Nick Cannon did a comedy skit in whiteface, while I thought it was silly of him, there are some serious issues in this country, see previous paragraph. People are still losing their homes, don’t have health care or can’t sign up for health care.

Maybe I’m just being pompous and these television shows help everyday American people see everyone has issues, problems and drama in their lives. I witnessed all this on television while I was practicing my dart throw.

Maybe, I’m just noticing America has dropped its standard and the only thing we produce of well is obesity, sports, gossip, and war, instead of quality of life and freedom to pursue happiness.

30 days to transformation

I cannot stress enough how 30 days, one month, four weeks or however you want to size it up is the key to personal transformation.

There is a book titled the Greatest Salesman in the World, authored by Og Mandino which was recommended to me by my uncle Rashid some years ago. This book delivers a method of change in appreciation for anyone who my be a little off their perspective path or require guidance without being preached to.

20130912-142228.jpg

I suffered some emotional ups and downs in my life and you wonder if it will ever end when experiencing an emotional storm. I can truly attest how a simple 30 day practice of change is transformational. BUT, there has to be commitment to change.
Here are a list of things that can be transformed in 30 days with the correct method and dedication:

  • Your Physical body for the better.
  • Your outlook on any given subject.
  • Your health mental and physical.
  • Your addiction (eradicated).
  • Your entire being.
  • Your Love life.
  • As a matter of fact I had feelings of despair, thinking the world absolutely is horrible, only to have a small change redirect my focus in a blink of an eye. If magic is available in that manor, just think what magic you could experience in 30 days.

    Stay so fresh and so Clean cause ain’t not body dope as you.

    Society of Haters..appreciate someones perfection.

    We are such haters in this modern culture. Our culture is waiting to see failure, doom and destruction at any given moment, we even help it along if there is little cost to us, just read Youtube.com comments. As Cee-lo sang, “Ain’t that some Shit.”

    It seems few in todays society few of us can truly appreciate genius and moments of perfection in other individuals, we down play spectacular moments portrayed by others, when we wish we could bask in their glory. This is most likely the reason for Reality TV’s popularity. We can judge/haterate without personal stake or cost. We, in particular most americans are in constant love/hate competitive relationships with the world at large. I see it in families, marriages and even my own life. I am no saint but there is one thing people who know me can say, as much as I am an attention whore, I love to see other people shine. It makes my heart smile when someone is exceptional. Exceptional people make me question my ability and test myself to see if I can elevate my being.

    Each person present in the time space continuum has a range of specific and unique talents, yet we seek notoriety for talents of mass public attention. When we should really be working to be our own worst judge. Life is not high school, and there is no real “Cool Kids table” for adults, but that is our reptilian brain comfort zone. Our human status is always seeking the approval outside of our physical bodies. To a degree I can understand that view if it is regarded as a “personal second opinion”, but typically its not the case. Lets all work on the ability to appreciate those people with the ability to exploit their own unique talent for the betterment of themselves and others, in other words. Be thankful for the talent of others to inspire your soul.

    Just think about how many people were inspired by the talent of Michael Jordan, Michael Jackson, BIll Gates and a host of others.

    Be appreciators not haters.

    Job’s, Unemployment and America

    We all complain about having to go to work. Work or having a job is necessary for the masses  to sustain a somewhat comfortable life. I too have these debates internally about working or a job. Most individual have never asked themselves, “What can I do for a living which would fulfill my life and soul with joy?”.

    I have asked myself that very question and sought out that answer, except there is one problem. It’s not just one thing, or my opinions change depending on my life experience. This question is important for all of us to keep asking.

    What typically occurs for most humans in America is we settle for what seems to be the easiest, like water down a hill. There is the problem directly. We get a job, putting our future and life and control in the hands of a few people. This is not a bad thing really, but there are alternatives. The alternatives depend on you method of thinking.

    Once upon a time in America it was not necessary to attend college, that was then. Now being employed in the middle class requires most people to prove ones self by buying into debt with a college education, which still holds no promise of future earnings. For instance my daughter will exit college $140,000 in debt at the age of 22. WTF!

    At the turn of the 19 century, a person could lean a trade as an apprentice. There one could test the waters, gain experience and perfect a craft. Your education was traded for time not dollars and time. Where can a person become a viable apprentice out of high school in today’s society.

    Our primary education system is no help to steer individual in the direction of having many options for employment today. The American education was designed to prepare the immigrants from Europe and other parts of the world to have the basic qualification as modern work force. Many individuals immigrating to America had very low education and many could not do the basics of reading, writing or common math. Our education was designed to give citizens the basics, nothing more.

    What is the American Dream today?

    What is the American Dream today?

    The dream for many early American citizens was to provide for themselves and their family. These people wanted to be their own boss. What happened to that spirit? We are trained to work for other, buy from other but not do for ourselves.  Many people use the biggest argument of having health insurance. It is an excuse for most of us. We must stop it.

    We need to change our mode of thinking. We need to figure our what would bring us joy as an occupation, while serving the public and eventually employing at least 5 to 10 people.

    Create a job don’t look for one. Live frugally. It has taken me years to figure this out, and now I can’t look back. I am constantly looking at the world to see how I can provide joy to the world and value in my life.

    Think about a good business owner who has 3 employees. That business owner helps to feed the square root of 3 or 9 people minimally, no to mention how much positive influence the business owner spreads.

    Create  more, consume less, create your own job.

    Enjoy, your life

    That is how change is carried out.

    The Dam Fiscal Cliff

    I just don’t get it. I try my best to keep my household as far away from any kind of cliff, real or metaphorically.

    Several months ago, 36 month to be exact I realized there was a serious problem in my house hold. The problem was I was spending almost as much as I was making. You see these kind of Cliffs don’t sneak up on you, most of the time we just turn a blind eye, and speculate that we will always make more money from somewhere. Our government not only seem to turn a blind eye, they just stopped looking.

    In my life the people that call themselves minimalist seem to be on to something. Looking at my credit cards I was making payments on things I could not remotely remember buying. There were the automatic 1, 3, 6 and yearly renewing items cropping up in my finances, cable bill, car payment(s), and a host of pocket drainers. Before the Cliff got to close I made changes. I used my friend Sara as a model, eBay, craigslist and the local bulletin boards became my new friends. I sold so much stuff, my wife started nailing things down. As time progressed debts began to dwindle to a very manageable and comfortable level. I even had my cable turned off for some months. You would be surprised how a homemade HD TV antenna can save you $1200 + a year. I learned how to make the HD antenna from youtube, its awesome.

    It seems our government should do the same thing, take a hard look at what they really are spending the money from each paycheck jacked from the people still working and those on unemployment. Sell some of the crap we have sitting around (not land or people), and pay off the debts. At least charge whoever got us into these wars, jeez other police departments get paid. Or we could just bully the other countries into forgiving the debt…just kidding.

    It really is a shame the government can’t get it together and budget things correctly and cut spending. There are single parents and intact families getting by on far less than the government has monetarily. I think if a family makes less than $40k a year that is considered under the poverty line. Then much of America is poor right now. America does not manufacture as much as it use to except obesity. I can figure out how I gained 10 lbs in two months either, go figure.

    Stop reporting about the Fiscal Cliff and stop the bus, close the door and do what you have to do. I know the government gets paid before any of its citizens get paid. So what is the problem, you got our money, put it to proper, and frugal use.

    Thrive The Movie

    Thrive the movie.

    thrivemovment.com

    This week I had the opportunity to view the Move Thrive, which can be found on the supporting website Thrive the movement.com.

    The movie ask the question: What will it take for Humans Beings on Planet Earth to Thrive in Harmony?

    I do wonder why they didn’t put the movie on Youtube.com if they want the message to spread, but with the great quality and production I can understand why they want to charge $5 for a 48 hour viewing.  The other fact is they will let you show the move for groups.

    It is based around the premise of if we had access to free energy to drive our daily lives. WOW! That would be a serious game changer in our modern society and planet.  The point behind it all would be, Humanity could then focus on the true aspects of our total  The Mind Body and Spirit to elevate the consciousness.

    From the start of the movie let’s just say I was skeptical at the onset, due to the movies main character is an heir to the Proctor and Gamble legacy/family Mr. Foster Gamble.

    My skepticism began to fade with the information about free energy, the money system and control monopolies which are engrained and have a direct influence on our daily lives and cultures. It even addresses the brainwashing we all suffer via the public media. I have to admit Media is very biased in America.

    The most immediate personal impact for me watching the movie cause the  seeking out  NON-GMO markets and stores. Hard to locate. I had never heard of NON- GMO products, which refer to Genetically Modified Organism. GMO foods and seeds are patented and privately owned food and vegetable products. Companies such as Monsanto own the seed which grow the produce we consume. It may not seem as though that has any negative issues outright, but it can be when it come to population and population control.  Let us ponder this, if you own something then you can control how it is used and who has access, which means Monsanto and companies like Monsanto can deny the public access to certain food sources, or modify organism that change our genetic code through consumption over time of said produce. We are what we eat.

    I have been fascinated by Nikola Tesla for a few years. Tesla was centuries ahead of what we in the public understand about energy. Tesla was six or eight level ahead of the modern world in his understanding of gravity and electromagnetic fields. This lead to the Free energy scientist.

    There was so much information it was astounding. I think you should watch it for yourself and formulate you own opinions, don’t take my word for it.

    P.S  There was also the money system and how to circumvent the monetary process at a grass-roots level. and much more ….Just check it out!

    2012 Ready for mind and spirit change

    Occupy New York could be the kindling wood to start the needed process of mass mindset and spiritual change. It seem as though the powers that be want to keep us frightened and dependent on their rule of law. It is not working any longer. This shit sucks and is old and boring. I am done with being an uber consumer. A buying commodity. Our sense of real community is lost. Plus we work more than we live.  The 1950’s post war suburban mentality died in 1979. What are we to do, begin using the time were given to live to love and love to experience what tribal people already know.  It’s the experience of the journey for which we are created.

    I have food,water, shelter, love and community. The rest of it is just STUFF and Clutter.

    Gas Prices are too high still

    This post was originally written in 2011 but it’s still relevant.

    I understand there are thing in life external to my being, I cannot control, BUT,gas prices are to dam high.

    I purchased a 2007 toyota Yaris because the minivan I was driving was eating me up financially. On occasion I require a larger vehicle to transport my DJ gear around, but it was cheaper for me to down grade my gear to accommodate the change in cargo space of my Yaris.

    I live in Michigan, where the mass transit system is HORRID, the Jobs are not centralized, and you have to have a automobile to function. The living normal; not uncommon for a Michigander to travel 30+ miles one way just to get to work. YEP, I am ranting. My little Yaris has 35+ mpg in the winter and almost 40 MPG in the summer, with an eleven gallon fuel tank. Gas prices currently are $3.25 a gallon here right before Christmas. That means @ $33+ dollars a week if I got from home to work and maybe two trips to the grocery store or something. Minimum $132 a month, $1584 a year. Heaven forbid if I had a car with less than 34 mpg. How are people doing it with these cars of lower MPG, and making $3 or $4 dollars over minimum wage. I would gladly ride a train, bus , share a ride if I could. Gas at $2.00 a gallon looks freaking fantastic right now.

    Even electric cars look good to me, but the initial price tag is too high, and forget if you require battery replacement, drop another $8K.

    It is a systematic dismantling of the middle class, one stone at a time, because the price of fuel affects everything we buy, from our food, televisions and the list is endless.

    You know what, Life is Great and I am still happy and grateful I live in this country. I have the privilege to bitch about things that seem to SUCK, and actually still have an automobile.
