When we go out in public and protest our president, “What exactly are we proving other than our own ignorance?” For us Christians who routinely engage in public protests in general; how many of us have actually stopped to consider “Who” we’re actually protesting? I mean, “Why do we protest at all if we each truly have a personal relationship with the Lord?” Continue reading What Any Anti-Trump Protests In NYC Right Now Would Prove: Social Issues: An Inner Visionary’s World View.
When it came my time to vote during the 2016 elections; I voted for the person that would be the easiest to impeach if push came to shove. So, “No,” Hillary Clinton didn’t get my vote because she was way to embedded in the political system here in America; having friends in all the right places who make it possible to help her, “Do no wrong.” So, “Yeah,” Trump was it for me. Continue reading How The Media Got It All Wrong About President Trump: Social Issues: An Inner Visionary’s World View.
On Friday, October 14, 2016 pictures of Johnny D’Angelo of Newton NJ and Catherine Moore of Cape Coral Florida were posted on Facebook. The pictures showed them together; despite the fact that Catherine Moore was a married woman with three children and living with her husband at her in-laws house. Clearly, ethics weren’t a concern for these two lovebirds, any more than the law is; Universal and otherwise. “However,” even more disturbing were some of the responses folks had to these pictures; clearly speaking to the all-time low in the moral values they would have otherwise had if they truly knew the Lord.

When my friend moved into Liberty Towers in the beginning of August 2016; I thought for sure that this latest address change would be a new beginning for her. However, between what I’ve heard and personally observed; I’ve since become convinced that anyone who’s looking for low income housing would do better anywhere but there.

During the 2016 Presidential Election proceedings; the phrase, “Black lives matter,” caught my attention. Upon researching it a bit I found that it wasn’t just a slogan but an actual group. According to their own website; the Black Lives Matter Network advocates for dignity, justice and respect. However, when I took a look at their list of principles found on BlackLivesMatter.com I had to shake my head in amazement and disgust because of their own bigoted denial of what is really the truth; showing a high level of immature, deplorable gutlessness and ignorance that goes far beyond any words I could ever right here. Continue reading Black Lives Matter Facts One Can No longer Afford To Ignore: Social Issues: An Inner Visionary’s World View.
On July 2, 2016 I just couldn’t help but think for the millionth time what a joke handicapped parking is here in Sussex County, Newton, NJ, as I was getting a dude to move his car out of the blue zone next to the handicapped parking space my friend Ellen was legally in. I explained to him that she couldn’t possibly get herself out of the car because of where he was parked. Come to think of it, “I’m not sure how he really expected to get out of his car.” Continue reading Newton NJ Handicapped Parking Laws And Regulations Joke: Social Issues: An Inner Visionary’s World View.
On Wednesday, May 29, 2016 I was on the side of a rather busy West End Avenue and having difficulty with my Registered Seeing Eye Dog. She had decided that it was a good day to start sniffing the ground and move in a manner that was most definitely not safe for either of us. Why was it not safe? “She was playing around right on the white line that divides the shoulder of the road from the lane of oncoming traffic.” But, “It gets better!” Continue reading Know What Dog Abuse Is Before Researching How To Report It: Social Issues: An Inner Visionary’s World View.
As a blind person; I meet many people in my life who go out of their way to be politically correct around me. They are very careful in their choice of words when speaking with me. But they often become flustered rather rapidly when I hand them a line they don’t have a scripted response for.

If someone from outer space ever heard us talking about our economic situation here in America they’d probably be shaking their head. Is there really any logic to what is going on these days?

While in Walgreens on the weekend of May 14, 2016; I was reminded for the millionth time as to why I hate shopping in Sussex County New Jersey. This is because, while being assisted by an awesome Walgreens sales associate named Florence, some bimbo decided that her kid should say high to my Registered Seeing Eye Dog. “Now,” if the woman had wanted to teach the child some proper Blind Etiquette I wouldn’t have had a problem with that. After all, “Wouldn’t knowing how to display some proper etiquette around blind people be the politically correct thing to do?” Continue reading Only Jackasses Would Seek A Politically Correct Word For Blind: Social Issues: An Inner Visionary’s World View.
In January of 2016 I was asked if my registered Seeing Eye Dog and I would be willing to help create a training video for Poll Workers by Marge McCabe; Administrator of the Sussex County Board of Elections, Newton, NJ. So, figuring that it would be something that just might make life easier for more than a few poll workers and differently abled people alike during the 2016 Election Season; I agreed to do it so long as they kept me well plied with coffee.

Having ridden in my share of volunteer owned rolling deathtraps; it might be in everyone’s best interest if Sussex county and its municipalities had their volunteers motor vehicles regularly inspected. This should be done as a part of granting permission for Emergency Management type Volunteers to display any kind of plate or blue light. Although some might think it’s amusing that they are driving a car or truck that can easily take a life while they regularly volunteer to go out and save one; it’s time to start holding people to a higher standard. As it is, local police seem to be already giving our EMT, RACES, Fire Fighters and other volunteer personnel a free pass on their driving negligence, as it is.
Even The Donald would have to agree; America’s Attitude towards its blind population has partly resulted in government overspending and the breakdown of Social Security in particular. In fact; if you were to sit down and make a list of all the things “We The People” expect our government to do for us, you would find that blind people are on an expensive list of stuff that the government is expected to fund. Because of what is largely gross negligence by the average American; it’s going to take way more than writing an email to Donald Trump to make America great again.

I’ve once read somewhere that the state of Tennessee had passed a law which prohibits business owners and managers of properties, that the general public has access to, from requesting documentation that verifies the authenticity of a service animal. Now! Speaking as somebody who has had three Seeing Eye Dogs over the last twenty-six years; I’ve got to say that, “This is the stupidest law I’ve ever heard of!” Continue reading Law Negatively Impacts Safety Of Seeing Eye Dogs: Social Issues: An Inner Visionary’s World View.
While signing up for that free Facebook account so you can share personal stuff with friends and family; have you ever considered that, “Anything that gets you to write down in words your thoughts, ideas and reactions to different topics can be used to manipulate you without you even being aware of what’s going on.” Also, are you aware of the fact that those free discount cards that places like the Newton Walgreens and ShopRite offer keep track of your buying habits; telling them things about your household that you yourself might not even be aware of?
