Chaos Won...Peace

Aloha (Hello) and Aloha (Goodbye)....I thought I could mentally and emotionally handle a return to
my Maui Hippie Blog...Unfortunately, as much as I tried, I've lost my peaceful center due to the not-so-peaceful world we all live in,,,I feel pissed off all the time and that's just not me! I think part of it is the brain issues I have, but, it is what it is...

I live in a very peaceful, safe place...My physical being is here but now I need to re-connect with my
soul and spirit...I need to find my center again...

Peace

The Maui Hippie.....Out

Fix the USA first man...

The United States cannot fix the world...It shouldn't try, ever! The USA is not the same as any other country, it's different and broken...The United States cannot honestly council other countries and cultures on peace, freedom, and democracy, because "they" have not successfully counseled and guided the plethora of citizens, non-citizens, races, and cultures living within their borders...

There is so much attention and media given to racial divide, gender divide, prisoner divide, and what's next, age divide? "Soylent Green is People"!!! (look it up!)...Negative attention brings negative results...Take the media away from racial activist, pro female/male activists (dangit! pissed off another one..), religious activists, Presidential candidates, and sexual preference activists, they fall like ripe mangoes from the tree!

Personally, I could give a groovy shit who you worship, who you vote for, and who or what you want to sleep with...

Dig this...I just read that some of the members of the group Black Lives Matter are going to Rio to promote their cause...Really? They believe that everything is groovy in the United States so they're ready to move on to Brazil? Take care of business in the United States first man! What successful record do they have to share with Brazil? None!

The murder rate, overall in the United States, has gone down...It's still the highest in the entire world at over 14,000 people in 2014 according to the FBI...I can't find any 2015 numbers yet...Anyway man, here are some numbers for murder only in the United States in 2014...There were 3,021 white people murdered and 2,451 black people murdered...The rest of the numbers were for "other"...The offenders for the white people murdered were 2,488 white and 446 black...The offenders for the black people murdered were 187 white and 2,205 black...Are the Black Lives Matter protesting against their own? Looks like whites are killing whites and blacks are killing blacks..

Stop the nonsense man! If you're living within the borders of the United States, put your energy and your spirit and your power into fixing your own first...Someone needs to have the strength and pride in this country to tell other countries that we're broke, we're busy with our own, and we'll help you after we fix our own!

My solution is simple, but unfortunately, we're way beyond sitting across a beautiful Koa wood table with the powers that can change the world, in Jeans and tee-shirts (tie-dye), smoking a little Maui Wowie! Wouldn't that be far out?

Peace

Pissed Off!!

Here on Maui, we're somewhat protected from the crap that happens around the world...That doesn't mean that the center of our being isn't affected by all of the chaos and killing...I am pissed off because there is nothing I/we can do...The United States has done nothing but talk about rights and the protection of questionable foreigners in our country...The French were attacked because they are our allies! Women and children, which is common in these terrorist attacks, were brutally killed...

This culture, this enemy, is worse than the Vietnamese when it comes to Martyrism...Now is the time when we, the United States, have to decide what's more important, politics, wealth, or lives...We know who the enemy is...We know where they live...If the United States doesn't utilize the weapons and technology available to destroy this constant threat, without the concern of unfortunate collateral damage, we will continue to be mourners, not victors...

It's amazing and disappointing to me that our world hasn't gone beyond the reasoning we create to kill, to believe that this will accomplish anything! For years now, the United States has tried to be the good guy, without success...We spend a stupid amount of time and money on dealing with Black Lives Matter, LGBT, Mexicans, Muslims, and able working homeless, and we can't stop these killers?

Damn I'm pissed! Take the dang politics out of the decision to take swift and intense action against anyone or any group that threaten our lives...I've grown with peace and love as the answer to all, and I'll continue to hope...Unfortunately, the times and enemy have changed since Kent State (look it up) so our confrontation strategy has to change...

Forget NATO, forget allies, forget politics....Do what is right for the United States, and their citizens, to protect them first...Stand alone! As a hippie, sometimes with a hemp induced fever, I truly hope that WORLD PEACE would come to fruition someday soon... Unfortunately, we're going backwards, not forward toward peace with other races, cultures, and religions...I'll be on my little island, hopefully safe from the world, thinking and praying for humanity...

Peace

We are NOT the same...

Remember when I said that I might accidentally offend some readers when I start writing about my take on things? Well, it might be that time! I'm going to jump right in to race, gender, and culture...I'm going to spew out the thoughts and opinions I have in my sometimes twisted little brain...Lohi (pronounced Low He), my little brain mate, might be the only one that really understands...

It's clear to me, now more than ever, that our political, social, and moral decline is in part due to the focus and importance we put on equality...During and after the recent protest and shootings in Dallas, all of the local and National television networks kept flashing to different politicians, high ranking cops, and various "activists", to listen to their crap about why this was happening...A very common message was that we're all the same and we should love each other and be equal...GUESS WHAT? WE'RE NOT!

What is this model human being that everyone wants to be equal to? Strong like a man? Emotional like a woman? Religious like a Pope? Smart like a genius? What color? How tall? What age? Fat as me?

Dig this....Jump on the reality bus man! By trying so hard to convince yourself and others that black is the same as white, women are the same as men (that just pissed someone off!), Jews are the same as Muslims, Mexicans are the same as Portuguese, and Bud is the same as Bud Light, we've lost sight of the issues at hand..We are not the same so "they" need to stop trying to act as if we are...Everything this country has done to attempt to promote equality has just created more chaos and segregation...Every time a black man or woman gets in front of a camera, a comment has to be made about slavery or prison population or cop shootings...It keeps the hatred alive...Every time a white man or woman gets in front of a camera, a comment has to be made about how many black friends they have, or worse, they try to rap...It keeps the hatred alive...I could go on and on about every race, gender, and culture, and how every comment made to support "their own" keeps the hatred alive...

Historically, the United States hasn't done such a groovy job keeping the peace with "others"...Look at the Indians, Hawaiians, Alaskans, Blacks, Southerners (Civil War)...Go further back and check out the Irish and Scottish slaves (all white) in Colonial America...Pretty much every race and culture has been mistreated in America...In most all of these cases, it was legal and accepted to own a wagon or two full of our ancestors...Get over it man! A hundred years from now maybe the latest strain of human being
the LGBT community, will be protesting in the streets because they were so mistreated when they didn't have their own bathrooms back in the day...

The hippie in me wants to believe man...It would be far-out if everyone was past their own personal demons and saw humanity living and working together peacefully...History has taught us many things,,Not only things about America, but things about the world...Every race, gender, and culture digs killing for what "their own" believe in...It may be racial, religious, gender power, political power, land, and a lot more dumb-ass reasons!

I don't have a lot of faith in our system of Government, especially when we're telling the world that these two knuckleheads on the left are our best to run things...You know what man? I'm kind of glad I'm getting old, and I'm kind of glad that I'm loosing my marbles...I won't have to care about this mess we're in for much longer...I am sad though for my beautiful grand-kids...They're in for quite a trip man, and not the good kind!

Peace

I'm Changing, I Think?

I've been away for a few years for so many reasons...The last two years, or so, I've been dealing with an early form of Alzheimer's and a Peanut M&M size tumor in my brain (I've named it Lohi)...All this time I thought it was the bad acid I did while listening to White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane or Stink-Foot by Frank Zappa at maximum decibels! My lovely wife, Maureen, deals with my nonsense in a sweet, loving way...Loosing memories is the worst...
I can dig not remembering my age! It is what it is...My wife tells me that I've become more vocal about the world we live in...She tells me I've lost my "filters" which means I say it like I believe it to be, no matter who it may offend...No one has punched me yet! So, I apologize in advance if I offend anyone with my future "un-filtered" blog content...
I'm not 100% convinced that lying will put me on the bad side of Baby Jesus or send me straight to hell...My lack of memory causes me to lie! Maui is a small island so people often stop me to chat when I'm out running errands...Most times I have no clue who these kind people are but they obviously know me...I immediately go into my acting mode and just follow their lead as if I've known them forever, I lie! I don't know how to tell people that I don't remember them, so I lie! These aren't the people that just make eye contact and give Shaka...These are the people that come right up to you with huge smiles and their hand extended...It's awkward and embarrassing, so I lie!


My wife, Maureen, is the most amazing woman on earth! Maui, to say the least, is a desirable place to visit...When friends and/or family decide to visit, Maureen takes time to show me photos and tells me what I need to know about our visitors...It's helpful so I can study faces and ask questions...When our visitors arrive, I'm not completely in the dark...

When we're all sitting around having a cold beer and just talking story, it's hard for me to believe they're talking about me in these stories when I can't remember a dang thing...It's as if they're talking about someone else...It's freaky man! I couldn't possibly be the one they talk about...I should be in prison! I don't feel like I've changed much...I get frustrated more because I don't remember...My comfort zone is when I see and communicate with the same people everyday...I eat at the same places, golf and fish with the same people...It's not fair to my wife because I won't do anything different than what I do everyday...I'm always afraid that I'll run into someone I'm supposed to know, and have to lie, AGAIN!


My Brain Doctor wants me to quit driving because I lost my way a couple of times...Where am I going to go? I live on an island! I seem to get disoriented at night mostly...I did stop driving at night...I try my best to enjoy my life and the lives of those around me...I love making people smile, especially during dark times...I thought it would be far-out to create instructions for those who might find me if I happen to be walking around the streets with my wife's bra on my head...In case you're wondering about the instruction tattoo, shown here, which is on my upper right arm, I have my wife's name and her phone number tattooed on my butt! I pity the cop that finds me and has to pull my britches down to get my wife's phone number...I'm guessing he or she might just turn around and leave, and leave me for the next shift! Can't blame em! My tattoo makes people smile and serves a purpose...I'm a happy hippie!

So, that's been my world for a while...All this crap is boring man so I'm going to stop for now...

Peace
