An acting anything

I'm still not sure what direction this blog is going to go in.  Like my other 4 blogs, they evolved into a category that I am comfortable talking about in a demographic profile to speak for a strong spirited generation that many would think have shuffled on to the sidelines only NOW able to be discovered as doing famously well even if not famous nor infamous.

Comments about US Election
The US Presidential Election of 2016 is a anomaly that is for sure.   At the same time, it exploits a commentary about what is hidden in our society when it comes to men and women equality.  I've never written per se about a gender specific issue before.  However, now that is so increasingly being pronounced in this US Presidential Election seemingly to be more about genders than anything, I decided to speak up and based on whether this blog is shared, speak out.  

For hardly can it be anything but about gender is profound.  Let's look at the difference, as a reflection of what our society really has become in the north of the americas, including Canada, the United States.  Otherwise known to those in the crew (Canadian or American) known to mean to how to determine and describe our geographical locations, some philosophical cohesion, struggles to glory and helping each during defeat.

Yet, here it is a candidate who has better qualifications than anyone in probably any country becomes belittled into a gender thing.  The first President of the United States, as a sidebar at most, should be credited to this remarkable climb.  Call me intrigued, but it wasn't until the final film before she moved away from behind the curtain into the spotlight, that I became really impressed with her as a woman, if anything else and everything else is besides the point.

You see, it is a phenomena unique to women that nobody has ever discussed, that I am aware anyhow, the painful strength it would take and maintain an acting role designation in the capacity of a really important role or assignment.  

An acting role
Think about it.  Hillary Clinton's role as Secretary of Defense for the United States was more like the "Acting Role of the President of the United States" in support or in sights of that very important role.

Yet, here on the other side, we have a guy who has a pumped ego, a strong message and charisma along with bomba like "nobody's business".   He keeps blundering along in his offensive opinions that he can't keep to himself, never mind zip it altogether.  

Frankenstein of a digital revolution
Trump is the Frankenstein of the digital age and a revolution.  Not quite the revolution Bernie Sanders saw and was horrored by, communicated weakly outside his followers as socialistic, government imploded, almost communistic style.

Trump has become the egomaniac that Americans so love to adore.  From afar.  In the comfort of their homes, their grief, their beliefs.  

With a Frankenstein physical presence, a ego so YUGE, and a mouth so BIG, he uses his terminator force to belittle race, religion, gender, ethnic origin, beliefs, values, family, economical setting and disability.  

He gets away with it.  Isn't that so fantastic?  Some conscience Americans are kinda freaking out a bit because they are starting to realize that they've created a comical cartoon of a movie that is there for the public to enjoy, be horrored by, or just stunned.

Trump resembles the blown up version of just about anything that Americans have been very patriotic about.  They like to be the world peacekeeper, referee, disciplinarian, and example to which others wish to follow.

Road kill
Except, in this microscopic experiment that has blown out of proportions for rubber neckers to watch with dismay.  Trump is forcefully stating what is wrong with America in a stunning way that emulates the qualities that are wrong in America. 

Here you have a woman who was acting President in all intents and purposes and yet has to defend her ability to take the top job based on already doing it for a period of time.  

Brain aneurysm
Have you ever had that happen to you?  It popped out like a burst when I realized what was at the core of this Presidential Election.  It has become a fight about gender and equality like no force to have been reckoned with in quite some time, if ever.  And there are a lot of examples when it came to a head.  Like a volcano tremor that hints at the eruption forces laying dormant, not complete quiet, yet not quite loud enough.  

Why would this election be any contest?  I mean, seriously folks.  Think about it.  ONLY a man going up against a woman would be able to get away with what Trump is.  A pure emblem of what is rotten at the core.

How can Trump even be a contender and evade guilt on so many fronts.  How he ended up with such talented kids can ONLY be attributed to their Mother, Ivana Trump.  That so many people forget about.  Now that she's been tossed over by a younger model, of the literal kind.

A woman a third older than Malinka Trump (is that her name, is that how you spell it?) was NOT the mother of those impeccable, genuinely gifted kids.  She could get away with plagiarizing the current (not even former First Lady) speech and have it swept away because of her beauty and her grace, her arm candy appeal on Trump's hand.

That simple gesture of how Trump places his hand upon people.  He does not reach across nor reach up.  He pats people on the head, on the hand.  A condescending gesture if you ever want to study a sociopath.

But there he is, the Frankenstein of the social media mayhem that is a revolution of humanity's consciousness.  That's the revolution Bernie Sanders hinted out.  He just didn't quite have his finger on it.

.... a Commentary is to be continued.

A Pictorial Post

Flash back to the 80s and 90s when I was an advertising sales representative.  We didn't have fancy titles, the title of where we worked in the media was our badge of honor.  Mine was magazines.  How I love the smell of the ink without the annoyance of a whole lot of black stuff rubbed on my thumb and index finger.  

Some words float out of me as part of those days.  I'll have to root through and find some of my favorite projects and share on ThePublisher blog that I created to talk about publishing.  It is a topic I love in the act of sharing information and making the world a more beautiful place.

A Pictorial, as I recall, and before I go to the ever-handy WIKIpedia for the answers ::..... is an editorial piece that is almost all visual photography, imagery or art with only captions below minimally.  It allows the viewer to absorb and take in the image fleetingly capturing where your eyes fall upon.  Comments unnecessary, yet impossible if you are its creator, who happens to l…

Things that will make you think and say "huh"

I was looking around, surfing the net and was wandering indiscriminately around based on the various links that are emailed to me.  I guard my email address in such a way that I have everything organized, categorized.  It is important that when I subscribe to a site, that it does something for me.  Personally.  Not my husband, nor my family nor my employer.  It is my time.  Yes, it makes me a better wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, employee when I do so.  

What I see and what I post are random and make me mentally say "huh".  Not loudly as an acclamation "HUH!!" nor drawn out with puzzlement as in "huH??"  Just a small registration, like a blip, I mentally register with a "huh".  As in, interesting, let me read more.

You would think that as a person you have to be guarded and wary of giving too much of yourself away, to be taken unawares and exposed to danger, inconvenience, unwarranted attention, unsolicited retention.

Triumph over struggle

This blog was originally written earlier today (Saturday, March 4, 2017) on my optioneerJM blog on Word Press ~ where I find an atmosphere of support and celebration of original writing among those who write themselves.  It is the highest compliment any fledgling writer can have.Like most of us at the tail end of Baby Boomers while being drowned out by Millennials, we're trying to get ahead.  Achieve success, notoriety or acclaim.  Subsidize our career choices with our inner voices.  To help others, to help ourselves.  To exhaust our demons by writing and exhuming scars that life has left on our brains.Confidence or competenceA struggling battle between what we want to express and be appreciated for our words.  So many of us write to right the struggles we have fought, the wars we have lost, the lessons we have learned.Gratitude: pitiful compensationWe appreciate the acknowledgement by others who are in chained to the common goal:  of being paid for our words.  What a steep mounta…
