Enough Is Enough.

To those who are trying to impose an influence over Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party – which seems to be always before an election… Hmmm.

To especially those who keep on insisting using the anti-semitism card each and every time you fail to get your way…

It will not work in your favour but against you.

Enough is enough.

Stop
Just stop…. spitting your dummies.

There is far more vile stuff being said and done to the Muslims on a daily basis.

Strike Action Diminishes Trust & Reliability

trust and relaibility
Trust and reliability…

Trust and reliability which has taken years to forge is lost the very instance whenever workers walk out the door or go on strike.

From experience, they will only try their hand at the implementing the same manipulation tactics time and time again, pushing their luck that little bit harder with each attempt. Of which, the repetition becomes stale with greed. Inevitably, workers become more complacent due to demands being met.

If workers cannot do their job effectively consistently by going on strike and their actions for which they are responsible for is causing a ripple effect on the public, they need to be nipped in the bud, not appeased or permitted to bully their bosses.

Granted there are pen-pushers who have no comprehension of what workers on the ground may face, any walkouts where talks have failed, would provide them with the opportunity to stand in for the workers and gain the valuable experience and insight needed before understanding the workers’ stance fully. To able to reach a fair and just, compromise sympathetically.

There are experienced employers out there who have worked extremely hard in establishing, developing and taking further their companies, showing utmost patience to date and that alone deserves a pat on the back.

Where that is the case, what an employer should do is let the strikers go… People who voluntarily choose to go on strike, potentially ignoring, compromising and endangering users of the services should be dismissed from their jobs, to make way for those who genuinely need and want a job, respectful of those above them paying their wages. Service users reserve the right to take their custom elsewhere, otherwise.

In order for workers to understand humility and gratitude, they need to be reminded of just how lucky they are to be walking in such comfortable shoes. There are workers overseas who work in potentially highly dangerous conditions with no health and safety polices in place. They receive very little next to nothing yet they continue to strive in helping to make the world a better place, for others, sometimes risking their lives. They are the survivors, of the fittest.

Keep Calm And Yield

rightofway

I encountered today yet another degree of selfishness. I cannot fathom how people seem to believe they have right of way on what is surely, a shared public pavement…

My daughter and I were waiting to meet someone and I decided to put a piece of scrap paper from my coat pocket into a bin, which we made our way towards. Job done, checked that my daughter was okay yet this old lady decided to have a right go at me some fifteen seconds later.

“Did you not hear me walking behind you – you just walked right across my path”.

Cue one jaw dropping moment.

“I’m sorry, I was just putting some rubbish into the bin”  I answered, feeling rather astonished…I really did not see any one else in the immediate vicinity except at the bus stop otherwise I would have yielded. Giving is better than taking, is it not?

She completely snubbed me and proceeded to the bus stop where she continued to moan about me right in front of my very eyes to innocent bystanders. I could not swallow how impudent she dared to be. I decided not to permit her to be so spiteful so calmly walked over to her; reminding her that I was putting something into the bin. Should I have thrown rubbish onto the ground instead? She looked surprised to see me standing my ground to an elder like herself, who are usually extremely set in their ways, who in addition had the audacity to brush me aside, waving me away.

An innocent bystander realised I was deaf and informed her of my predicament, hence why I did not hear her. Besides, she was only petite, not some stomping great giant. Bless this bystander and her cottons.

Upon seeing how she waved me away as if I were some pauper, I decided to give her one last injection of my feistiness, “You may think I am the one being rude when it is actually you, who is being so rude.” Relatively shortly after, I decided to remove my daughter away from such a display of insolence. From a short distance, we could still see her grumbling away, glancing back at us, trying to involve surrounding onlookers, which was saddening to see. My patience was being tested once more.

She expected attention under notions of grandeur and quite possibly she would have gone on to whine about me to everyone else she spoke to except they would not know the whole truth or my side of the story and this is what infuriates me so much.

Just because one may live in an area of affluence or have money, it does not give anyone the authority to be so arrogant and aloof. I sincerely hope she will think twice in future before passing any more crass remarks – not everyone will be as understanding. Caring for elderly people in the past has helped me to determine that for some of them, they know how well to manipulate situations into their favour due to their life experiences.

If I can give someone who happened to be a police detective, a piece of my mind with the greatest of respect for valid reasons, no one else gets treated any differently just because of who they may be, where they may come from or who they may know since it is all irrelevant. No one is all that.

A fact – arrogance renders people ignorant.

“An arrogant person considers himself perfect. This is the chief harm of arrogance. It interferes with the person’s main task in life – becoming a better person.” – Leo Tolstoy.

Keep calm and yield – within reason. For the giving (upper) hand is better than the taking (lower) hand.

Be a lover, not a fighter. 😉

The Media’s Influence

themedia

Are established media outlets to blame for the ever-increasing exposure of radicalisation and extremism, by falling victim to playing a part in adding to the propaganda? Of which is misrepresenting Islam and its peaceful followers, the Muslims.

For those who may not know, extremism is not permitted, in Islam.

I say yes to my earlier question (as above) because the exposure adds to the rising levels of “Islamophobia” except I would like to go on to say that social media is also being used as a tool by today’s society.

There is an online world being formed, which makes people feel able to take things into their own hands, making comments, posting YouTube videos or articles that spread like wildfire within seconds of it being publicized.

It is all potentially dangerous because each one of us will interpret the context based on our personal knowledge, understanding and experiences. Not everyone will seek the truth or a deeper knowledge in order to be better informed about what we are being told or given to read, by or via the media.

Here are some excerpts from several of my past articles relating to and/or responding to any extremism in the media:

My Waging a dirty war” article will help to explain one of the real reasons why the media of the West, is somewhat biased.

It is not a laughing matter. –

“I condemn all acts of terrorism especially where innocent people have to die.

Muslims seem to lose either way. They are constantly asked to apologise for crimes they did not commit nor supported. They are stuck between the extremists and fanatics on either sides. Most Muslims want to work providing for their family and get on with life in harmony.”…

…”My point being, freedom of speech is important but we need to hold back at our own discretion if we feel what we might say or do is hurtful towards others. There will always be people who want to push the boundaries and there is nothing wrong with that but freedom of speech cannot be used as an excuse to hide behind from when their actions has consequences and they should expect the same level of freedom of speech back especially when in a democratic state.

My main worry at this point in time is how society is reacting based on what the media wants us to see and believe”…

…”Any perceived anti-Semitism would be handled straightaway and the offenders promptly dealt with. Yet for any other religions, any anti views are sadly casually tolerated which I find very unfair because the same law should apply to all religions. By being respectful and mindful of others at all times would nip any anti views in the bud and would avoid that cataclysmic chain reaction of events spiralling out of anyone’s control. As for censorship? Do not even try to hide behind that excuse because no one ever sees what actually happens to the people of Palestine and other war-torn countries: Waging a dirty war.

Is the Ku Klux Klan a representative of Christians? So why do many think Terrorists are representative of Muslims? Fanatics or extremists does not define their religion come what may except distorts the truth behind it – all religions which asks for submission to the one and only same god is about peace and humanity. A true believer would not stoop so low to harm another because their religion (should) forbids it. Unfortunately people not in the know or are well-informed regarding a particular religion will accept that distortion all too readily. It is those who are the most sincere in their hearts that suffer the most from all this due to fanatics and others attributing excuses.

Thank you for allowing me to practise free speech – with respect comes peace.”

The ISIS video.: –

“The last straw for me came when I saw articles written by those who are not experienced or knowledgeable in either, the history of the Middle East, the language and the religion – the latter; ISIS has nothing to do with, at all.

Why are people listening to, consulting with or publishing someone”… “….who are not qualified on any aspect of the subject matter?

Not everything published online be it YouTube, Facebook or even established news outlets is correct and should always be looked at with a critical eye. Politicians who have an agenda in mind would highlight a particular issue and blow it out of proportion, then feed the public in order to gain votes. In some cases, deflecting attention from their shortcomings.”

Established media outlets should be responsible for what they broadcast and permit for they do not realise, the vast influence their content patently has on today’s society.

Hasta La Vista!

say goodbye

Only quite recently, I was made aware of some genuine concerns that some of my friends had, which were complaints that certain people and charities are associating themselves with those who bullied me and others in the past.

The miscreants back then forced our mutual friends to pick sides, theirs or mine. (I have since kept the evidence and there are witnesses!) However, I would never dream of imposing such a predicament upon someone else who had done absolutely nothing wrong.

What rights does anyone have to unleash his or her negativity unto innocent bystanders? This only proves their fears of losing face and letting paranoia take over. What made it permissible for them to put innocent people in such an awkward and unfair position? One considers it as another form of bullying and it is people like them, who need a good slap for their triviality.

slap1

I advised my concerned friends to have their voices heard and to speak the truth but they are too afraid of being identified and singled out in retaliation.

Rather unfortunately, this is what the deaf world is like and because of all the disregard others have unto ourselves by toying with us as if we were pawns in agendas of theirs, I no longer want any part of it. Especially for as long as they are around continuing to manipulate people with their lies, distorting / obscuring the truth and using / manipulating people for their own gains.

I no longer use social media for obvious reasons so I can only advise and wish those unsuspecting associates well, in the hope they will soon realise and learn from the errors of their ways. That they will not lose any interest or subscribers since people are getting rather sick of seeing the bullies being thrust in their faces continuously. This only goes to show how disgusted they are, with the treatment and childish behaviour towards themselves, and me in the past.

The deaf world is fast becoming much too small for some people’s liking so it is inevitable that it is a case of, “Hasta la vista” for some of us but…

In a very camp manner, I would like to embrace the hearing world with open arms and excitedly exclaim “Hiya!” and re-settle once again into a much more hospitable, amicable and respectable place.

Here’s To Steve Jobs

dont be trapped

Last year or the year before, I watched a film starring Ashton Kutcher who portrayed Steve Jobs and how Apple came about. It was then I realised just how I was not alone, in being bullied by their own staff.

When I remarked on the film back then, I was informed that he was actually the bully (!) but I knew deep down this was not the case or the truth. He had to be tough, to avoid being manipulated or taken advantage of, and cast aside despite founding Apple. It was his determination, influence and passion that helped to create Apple and its products, with a uniqueness found nowhere else thus changing the future.

steve-jobs-opinons

He had to stand and protect his ground, against the power mad and jealous staff who obviously wanted to overthrow him. He was in fact, the one being bullied and it is only thanks to those who respected him and his position as the founder, that he eventually got his company back and the wayward members of staff was removed for their despicable actions and childish behaviour.

I am so glad he carried on with his vision and am somewhat thankful I saw the film when I did because I recognised the same patterns and as a result, I was more or less “prepared” for what was happening realisically and predicted, for myself. His experiences along those selected few, who stayed true to me, gave me the confidence and courage to go on.

Steve-Jobs-Quotes-Connecting-The-Dots-1

I am looking forwards to seeing the new film depicting Steve Jobs’ life since I admire who he was, which was a result of those around him showing him who not to be. To learn more about his character and why he was, who he was. Furthermore, why I can relate to him and his words of wisdom.

There is a reason for everything and there will always be another side to a coin. The truth in the end, prevails however late it may come out so as they say, better late than never.

Considering I feel a certain kinship to him, here’s to Steve Jobs… 🙂

A Sociopath is….

twofaced

I have had more than my fair share of being subjected to bullies and sociopaths in the past and here is a list I have compiled from my experiences, which could assist you in defining and determining who / what a sociopath is…

They come across as being rather charismatic but in the end, is actually quite glib.

Even though they appear so certain of themselves, they are in fact paranoid.

They have strange sexual tendency or fetish(es).

They will warm to, suck up to anyone that is currently in the limelight, thus try to be in or steal the limelight.

They tell lies only to deceive but for some, they may lie compulsively.

They are able to manipulate their lies into sounding something very much like the truth due to their confidence and assertiveness to convince and dominate others.

They are unable to feel any guilt or remorse and have complete disregard for your emotional well-being or opinions and the consequences of their actions.

They will engineer situations and manipulate people into doing what they desire through charm or aggressive means.

They, more than likely, will have hidden agendas.

They end up treating people with such disrespect and contempt especially as and when things do not go their way. Basically, they spit their dummies.

They tend to be short-tempered and at times, violent – if not most of the time.

They may mentally and / or physically abuse those closest to them.

They are rarely shy but will certainly experience a degree of trouble in suppressing their anger, impatience or annoyance.

They are incapable of holding a job or remaining in one place for long periods.

They usually work or has worked in sales.

They come across as self-centred, and will constantly post selfies for attention and compliments.

They somehow feel entitled so will be manipulative to gain such a position or authority, especially for their own gains.

They are often deluded, with notions of grandeur.

They quickly get bored so will venture elsewhere for some mental simulation.  Physically, they will be spontaneous, taking risks without assessing any potential repercussions.

They will fail to keep to any social arrangements once they are comfortable with their foot in the door with a current social group and eventually, will look elsewhere for more unsuspecting victims to manipulate, bully and challenge.

They often seek approval from others and have a hard time taking criticism whether it is constructive or not.

They are two-faced and at best, hypocritical but will vehemently deny it.
