A Dark Week


In just a matter of days the nation suffered the suicide of two notable individuals. Kate Spade was more than a brand of cute women’s accessories, she was an inspirational person that showed by example that women can be influential ( such a fucked-up society that we still have to make such observations) in business.

Anthony Bourdain simply traveled the world and showed how people interacted with food, seems simple enough just bite down, but food as it turns out is a venue for people to share who they are as a people, individuals and that we have more in common than we like to admit.

Their suicide may go unresolved forever, both battled depression and all the demons that comes with it. Inconsequential was their success, fame, money, these are just some of the good fortune that come into some people’s lives, what does matter is that they were troubled people who had families, friends and yet were unable to get across that they were to do the unthinkable.

We can celebrate their lives but should never forget their deaths because in their last desperate act they are still sharing lessons with us…for me that is to pay attention and never dismiss or think that our family or friends are not capable of contemplating suicide. We live in dark times, negativity is omnipresent, a skewed media, the personification of hate in the White House, division, rampant corporatism, we are a hyperpolarized nation. All these things are enough to drive healthy individuals over the edge, for people who suffer mental illness things must “FEEL”unsurmountable. If you are going through tough times talk to a trusted family member or friend, but ALWAYS contact a professional, be well— there is always a better tomorrow all you have to do is persevere.

    what passes for our “society”, and “culture” continue to decline. I believe it has been in decline basically my entire life, though recent years have shown a steady and growing acceleration.

    “how powerfully it speaks to the discrepancy between what we see of people on the outside and what they’re experiencing on the inside; between their public faces and their private realities”

    “newly released government statistics revealed a staggering increase in suicides by Americans of more than 25 percent from 1999 to 2016, when nearly 45,000 Americans took their own lives. Experts worry that this trajectory reflects a breakdown in social bonds, in community.”

      “…I believe it has been in decline basically my entire life, though recent years have shown a steady and growing acceleration.” Yes, recently it seems a expedited but let’s not forget that as you say it has been in decline for sometime, the orange bogey man is a symptom not the cause.

    I always thought this chorus by Tom Petty spoke to this. You never know the baggage people are carrying.

    It’s refreshing to see FOX reporting the truth.

    ‘FOX & FRIENDS’ HOST SLIPS, CALLS TRUMP ‘DICTATOR’
    BY NICOLE GOODKIND ON 6/10/18 AT 1:13 PM

    “Fox & Friends host Abby Huntsman said Sunday that President Donald Trump’s historic summit with North Korean despot Kim Jong Un in Singapore would be a meeting between “two dictators.”

    The error went seemingly unnoticed by both Huntsman and her guest, former White House communications director, Anthony Scaramucci.

    “There is the president of the United States, Donald Trump, about to walk down those [Air Force One] stairs, stepping foot in Singapore as we await this historic summit with the North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un,” said Huntsman as live video played of the president deplaning in Singapore.

    “Anthony, talk to us about this moment,” she said. “This is history. We are living — regardless of what happens in that meeting between the two dictators — what we are seeing right now, this is history.””

      I say dream on…

      The American scoundrel is three decades older than Justin Trudeau, same with Emmanuel Macron . They all are laughing behind the back of the Ugly American President.
      The old man is on his way to destroy the World we love. Please vote in 2018 and vote trump out in 2020.

      • Fancy Jack says:

        Macron is kinda of a douche, I’ve seen a lot of stuff regarding Trudeau that makes him seem like the political version of Matthew McConaughey ( Not a good thing! ) Trump’s looks are inconsequential to the job, had he been a good POTUS people would be more forgiving.

        I will vote in 2018, 2020 (and beyond as I always have) but I don’t expect it will keep Trump out of the WH.

        • bebe says:

          We don’t know that, they just got in here, we shall see how they are.
          trump needs to go away soon , bring back Al Franken btw

          • Fancy Jack says:

            We don’t know what? The shifty side of macaroni or the beach broness of JT? Because we know since the election Mac is right wing, JT has a lot of fluff or that the elections in 2018 and2020 will favor Trumpinistas? Because if you don’t see it, remember you told me you’re a PROGRESSIve Dem, you must be listening to Neolib shill Rachel.

            • bebe says:

              They are all politicians but I liked the way they pot the scoundrel in their places.
              Yes, I am a democrat and consider myself a progressive but the all the politicians are weak and fighting among themselves….so there….

          • MSolomon2 says:

            I definitely agree about Al Franken, absolute travesty that the idiot dem-establishment banished him for no REAL reason. They disgust me with such idiot-gestures of “purity”, if only they had such “ethics” and “purity” when it comes to a strong core of actual TRUE Liberal Progressive ideas goals and a agenda.

            • Fancy Jack says:

              I’ll agree with you on Al, who I liked even when I disliked Dems, but only in principle. I’m not sorry that he got his, I think the sccumbag Dems having abandoned all principles in 2016 made a horrific tactical error in forcing him out.

              • bebe says:

                See ?
                You are saying what I said 🙂
                He was a comedian and did whatever…that Kirsten Gillibrand should be voted out.

            • bebe says:

              Exactly

      apparently even the faux-noise-propaganda-network slips and tells a truth once-in-awhile.

    Anthony Bourdain calls Hillary Clinton’s Weinstein response “shameful”

    “Celebrity chef and television host Anthony Bourdain late Wednesday blasted Hillary Clinton’s response to the scandal engulfing her longtime donor, producer Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused of sexually assaulting and harassing dozens of women.

    Clinton earlier in the day had sat for an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria as part of her book-promotion tour, and talk turned to Weinstein. The former Democratic presidential candidate declared herself “appalled” by the allegations against him.

    “It was something that was just intolerable in every way,” she said. “And, you know, like so many people who’ve come forward and spoken out, this was a different side of a person who I and many others had known in the past.”

    • bebe says:

      Weinstein’s wife did not know a thing and I believe her, no everyone is a liar.
      Perhaps Hill did not know as well ?
      But anyways she will not be running anymore.
      Oh btw another book ?

      But I might look for Bill’s thriller 😉

      • Fancy Jack says:

        I wish fancy was here cuz I don’t know what to do with you anymore if you think his wife did not know, that’s like saying Madoffs sons didn’t know. Yeah, hills did not know bill was a habitual line stepper.

        • MSolomon2 says:

          I’ve always thought Bill & SHillaries marriage was probably basically just our modern equivalent of the royal wedding/alliances of the past. Just the modern political royalties (or even the monied neo-feudals) marriages of convenience, not to say I don’t think they probably like each other, but…. She probably completely knew and was fine with him doing his thing and she may well have had herself a cabana-boi or 2 on the side herself (why not).

        • bebe says:

          Oh fancy , miss her ❤
