as they relate to the murder (and yes, that is how I see it) of this man in Minneapolis
but first: "past predictions", as I know some people just barely tolerate my "opinion", seeing it as a small price to pay to get to what I predict (or, in this case, #predicted)
let's go back in time to some of the things I have said about what I expected "would happen" (in general) and, specifically, for May, 2020
I know it seems like 57 years ago, but in April (or, to put it into a slightly different context -- last month), I said early in the month that things would get, how best to say this, "testy"
each time I would say "well, the levels of tension are going to escalate" or . . . you think it's crazy now, just wait
I was told "it's bad already, it can't get worse" . . . well yes, sorry, it most assuredly can
I have talked to lots of people in private -- because, I know this shocks people who think I am just an open mic to my madness
letting them know more the full extent of what I believe is coming and, for those who may think "how dare I" hold back and only say a little bit . . . please remember, FB is part of "my job"
and when I am not on FB as often, it means I am doing my job pretty well, as I have more clients and less need to try and "get clients"
and (to be blunt) if you really want to know what I think or what I expect, at a deeper level, then the best way to get the "bigger picture" is, of course, to book an appointment and ask me
I try to temper what I say on FB, (a LOT) so as to (a) not alarm, or depress, people and (b) save myself the anxiety of trying to explain (or justify) "what I see"
I got enough death threats in 2017 and 2018 to recognize that there is a price
when your predictions of the future don't "conform" to the trump world story book wonderland they "want"
. . . anyway
what did I "predict" ??
I said we would see violence and that people would be "overIT" and taking to the streets
I know most "white people" probably saw all these hillbilly "patriots", in all their full on Caucasian indignation, carrying their assault rifles and waving Confederate flags, in fucking Michigan for God's sake (on the Canadian border to the North AND to the East; not exactly part of the Deep South, or is this "New Geography" since the Earth is flat) and thought #this
was "it" . . . but, sorry, I meant it more in a storm the Bastille, you stupid fuckers are killing us by your greed and incompetence kinds of taking to the streets
not "we want haircuts and a chance to go bowling", but (instead) we want a chance to live without seeing everything taken from us and given to people rich as fuck already
this is #why you want a balanced, rational, competent and calming presence in government
to try and keep things in #harmony
and one bad cop is not going to cause people to burn down their own town . . . but years and years of bad cops and overt, obnoxious KKK flavored incidents, one after another
well . . . they "add up"
my opinion is this: people are sick and tired of the way things are "being run" and their frustration(s) are, more than ever, just barely beneath the surface and ready to explode
I have been saying things like we saw yesterday were going to happen (specifically in May, 2020) and it doesn't take Nostradamus to know things will get worse before they get better
people have seen their future looted by trump's team and know the things they were promised were lies
they're long since overIT: no jobs, people (especially in the African-American communities) dying from "a hoax" that seems pretty real to the people who "have it"
people are tense as fuck
and who, really, can blame them
we, collectively, caused what is happening in Minneapolis
we had a thousand opportunities to create a "better world"
but, instead, we sat back and let trump lead us on the paved with ill intentions Highway to Hell
it will get #more_tense in the days to come
