‘women of color’ [Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib, Omar & Pressley] have ‘color’? Really?

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y whines about racism & then dines on the fruits of  American freedoms  

‘Women of color’ have ‘color’?   What color?

They are not ‘colored women’, nor  ‘persons of color’

They are ‘women of color’ say  congress women , Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib., Omar, and Pressley.

What actual  ‘color’ have  these four  ‘women of color’?   What are they really doing?

What do we know  in general about these   four  ‘women of color’ whom  Trump tweeted  recently (7/15/2019) and   said that they should  go home, fix problems there and then come back and  tell USA how it’s done?

Whence the term?    ‘Women of color’ is a a self description which  four women   representatives  have taken to self promote their collective   image  of themselves as victims.   They    view of themselves as victims of political oppression. Victims of racism.   They see themselves  as  oppressed by House Speaker  Nancy Pelosi,  by  Trump administration policies  and by  various other entities.

The term ‘colored women’ would be offensive to ‘women of color’.   The term ‘colored persons’ has been used by  various social justice activists  to  separate ‘whites’ [of European origin] from everyone else aka  ‘colored persons’ [not of European origin].

Thus, according to some persons including these four ‘women of color’  ‘racism’ is built into the very fabric of America.  These ‘women of color’  forget — or  never learned —  that the U.S. Constitution permits  major  league changes such that women and African-Americans vote and own property.

  It’s our Constitution which gives more freedoms to the individual, and protects those freedoms, than anywhere else in the world.

But why do these four  ‘women of color’  take for themselves what belongs to all women in the USA?

We are all American  women of color .  Who doesn’t have ‘color’?    Get real.   Most every woman  in America,  except albinos,  have some color to their skin.

USA women  are  different ‘tints’.   Some of us are  darker, some lighter, some with warmer tones, some with more yellow pigment  some more red.

More than half of America all of the women in America, have ‘some color’.

Usage of color in the English language. It’s true that  English   language describes various groups as having ‘color’.  Examples:  Historically we’ve described native Americans as having  ‘red skins’  though they don’t have red skins.   Currently 9 out of 10 Native Americans support the use of  Red Skins as a name for a  football team.   In the 1940’s  the term ‘yellow pearl’  referenced   fear of a Japanese invasion of  the West coast after  Pearl Harbor was bombed by the Japanese.

English references ‘color ‘ in many ways pertinent  both to individuals and groups of people.   The  term ‘black heart’ references morbidity  and sorrow.   “White hats’ and ‘black hats’ references   the good guys versus the bad guys.  Tom Mix always wore a white hat   for example.

References  to black and white in general goes back thousands of years.  Take early Judeo-Christian religion.  Light refers to what’s good and darkness  refers more to evil and that which is bad. The Light of the World, a reference to Jesus Christ, references  light as good.

How about black.  Are blacks actually ‘black’?  Not according to their DNA according to some research.   There’s research that one-third of all USA born  Afro-American men have some ‘white’ DNA.  Ms. Ayana Pressley, one of four ‘women of color’ whom Trump tweets recently (WSJ 7/15/19)  is African-American.

What are these ‘women of color’ doing?

These four ‘women of color’ seek to connect their definition of  ‘color’ with racism.  The world out there is racist per their view and they as victims  speak out against all that ‘racism’.  Interestingly, they  individually and collectively rail against Israel.

What do we know about these four:

Ms. Omar, the only one of the four born outside the U.S. came as a child from Somalia.  Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is of Puerto Rican heritage.  Ms. Tliab is Palestinian-American and Ms. Pressley is African-American.

What do they say?      Racism, racism everywhere and worst in America say these ‘women of color’.

Progressive Democrats and much of mainstream  media beat the drums of racism as central and integral  to the fabric of America.

They  need to broaden their life experiences.   Let all these progressives   and liberals who are not liberal go live in Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, China and Russia for a couple years.

Then come back and discuss their experience of freedom in those countries compared to America.

These four ‘women of color’  whine. And then they  dine on the American  fruits of  freedoms which come only from the U.S. Constitution.

Trump’s tariffs on Mexico will reduce illegal immigration?

 

illegal immigrants cross into USA

Trump’s tariffs on Mexico will reduce illegal immigration?  Doubtful.

The economy is booming.   Jobs are easy to get. People seek freedom.

All a person has to do is get in the USA and disappear for two years before showing up for a hearing. Thousands are picked up daily by the border patrol and  sent throughout the U.S.A.   See picture above.  About 1,000 were arrested May 20, 2019.

Suggestive that those illegals do get jobs, a record amount of money is sent back to central america this year.

Trump is ‘making good’ on a promise to his core supporters prior to his election.  Trump has tried other routes — with little support from the courts or congress.   So, ‘hit them where it hurts’ i.e., in Mexico’s pocket book. Tariffs  on Mexico will start at 5% and escalate.

avocados from Mexico may  soon cost more

Looks like avocados from Mexico  will cost more.

Immigration and health care costs are likely big issues in the 2020 elections.  The now Democrat controlled  congress spends little energy on either issue and prefers Trump bashing.  And now Trump bashes back.

Kavanaugh’s accuser psychologist Christine Blasey Ford flunks APA standards for psychologists?

Research psychologist Christine Blasey Ford,  Ph.D. flunks  basic  professional standards  for psychologists  –standards  related to fabricating data, deceptive statements and sharing research data for verification?  Take a look.

American Psychological Standards (APA)  standards for psychologists  are not put on  akin to a business suit for   the 8 to 5 day.

For many professionals what they do – whether  doctor, lawyer, psychologist  becomes interweaved with the essence of who they are as a person  and  how they interact  in general  with people.

Read in their entirety, professional standards:  expect  professionals to show care towards all persons equally  and to  provide options and ways for persons to  respond back.    That thinking  underlies   the  professional standards for all psychologists, and  all  medical doctors.   Summed up – do no harm

Concerning  the APA standard for sharing research data for verification:

  • Psychologist Christine Blasey. Ford failed to treat persons equally by a)  failing to notify  all parties  e., President Trump, Republicans, the Judiciary Committee.  She, a Democrat, who  only notified other Democrats.
  • Psychologist Blasey Ford failed to provide her Therapist Notes for general inspection by neutral parties.   Some stories floating around the Internet  say 4 boys  were involved and others refer to 2 boys. Most sources say no names are included in the therapist notes.
  • No highly specific identifiable information is provided i.e., what they looked like, clothing, color of room, how this 15 – 18 year old woman got there or got home (as she did not drive).

What was the  Therapist  Treatment Goals related to the trauma Blasey-Ford says she  supposed experienced 30+ years ago.  Diagnosis is the flip side of treatment.     If you go to a MD and he/she determines that you have a torn ligament and not a broken leg then there’s one treatment and not another.  So what was the diagnosis and   treatment goals – if any —  as stated in the therapist notes?

Aptos Psychologist opines:

This woman, research psychologist  Christine Blasey Ford, fails to meet basic  professional standards.  The standards that  all Ph.D. research psychologists are expected to meet. What standards?   Read the  American Psychological Association standards.  Do no harm, take care in all your interactions with people and provide multiple means for feedback are part and parcel of the thinking that underlies the   APA standards.  Read the specific  APA professional standards — and consider in general what they mean.

Research psychologist measure — carefully –small differences using standardized tests in conjunction with careful, thorough behavioral observations and other information.    Noticing small differences and recording them and  finding commonality  in all of  the information, i.e., how all the data (standardized test data,   various reports from various people, behavioral \observations) fits together.  That’s what clinical/ research psychologists excell at doing.  That’s what psychologists do best.

Research/ clinical psychologist Christine Blasley Ford, Ph.D. fails to meet basic professional standards.

Beat your wife and she seeks USA ‘refugee’ status?

Beat your wife and she seeks USA ‘refugee’ status? Yep.

Women born and raised elsewhere –whose husband beats them up —  can seek and get ‘refugee status’ in the USA.  How long will that continue?

We grant ‘refugee status”  because of a law Clinton got passed — 45 CFR 400.301 This law  applies to foreign born persons  seeking refugee status.

USA Attorney General Sessions is deciding yes or no on this issue.  The case Sessions is deciding involves   a case of domestic abuse brought by a woman from El Salvador. She seeks “refugee status” here.

Big bucks are involved in this decision.

The current USA   law — passed by President Clinton –gives lifetime entitlement of all federal programs  to refugees.  45 CFR 400.301.

This gives  a lifetime entitlement for  refugees who become citizens.    Currently, contractors can continue to deposit refugees where they choose regardless of state objection.

When Obama increased the Refugee admission quota in 2017 to 111,000 four states withdrew. But the numbers of refugees that actually settled in those states did not decline.  That’s because of CFR 400.301.

Currently the resettlement programs are on automatic pilot without the States able to say no effectively.  

If you think that freedoms for Americans  — including the right not to be beaten by your  husband — should be protected without extending that USA right world wide …. then petition your government to abolish CFR 400.301

President Trump lowered the immigration quota to 45,000.  The next President could increase it to 250,000.  It’s time that citizens of the USA spoke up and get control of how many “refugees”  are allowed in and on what basis refugees will be admitted.

The USA can and should seek to strengthen women’s rights abroad.  And we can and should be  be a beacon of freedom world wide.

Firenze Sage: diversity bubble bursts [diversity course does not change attitudes towards race & gender]

What to do when a course teaching diversity does not change students’ attitudes?  Just keep requiring more classes?  Yep.

diversity course not effective ….

Mandatory diversity course not effective, prof discovers

A professor at East Carolina University recently discovered that the diversity course she teaches isn’t actually “effective” in changing students’ racial or gender biases.

Dr. Michele Stacey, who teaches criminal justice at ECU, assessed the efficacy of the school’s diversity course by surveying 288 criminal justice students’ attitudes towards women and minorities both before and after taking the course, publishing her findings in the latest issue of the Journal of Criminal Justice Education.

Race, Gender, and Special Populations in the Criminal Justice System is a three-credit course that is required for the ECU major and minor in criminal justice. Aimed at educating students about the challenges of minorities in the criminal justice system, the course covers a variety of topics, including Native Americans and African Americans.

But while the course is also offered in the spirit of helping to reduce student’s bias towards these groups, Stacey discovered something interesting.

After assessing the bias of students before and after the course—using prompts such as “a woman should worry less about their rights and more about becoming good wives and mothers” and “if blacks would only try harder they could be just as well off as whites”—Stacey found that the course hadn’t altered students’ attitudes towards race or gender.

Why You Can’t Just Outlaw Bias

Executives favor a classic command-and-control approach to diversity because it boils expected behaviors down to dos and don’ts that are easy to understand and defend. Yet this approach also flies in the face of nearly everything we know about how to motivate people to make changes. Decades of social science research point to a simple truth: You won’t get managers on board by blaming and shaming them with rules and reeducation. Let’s look at how the most common top-down efforts typically go wrong.

Diversity training

Do people who undergo training usually shed their biases? Researchers have been examining that question since before World War II, in nearly a thousand studies. It turns out that while people are easily taught to respond correctly to a questionnaire about bias, they soon forget the right answers. The positive effects of diversity training rarely last beyond a day or two, and a number of studies suggest that it can activate bias or spark a backlash. Nonetheless, nearly half of midsize companies use it, as do nearly all the Fortune 500.

#Me too …. movement: What women say privately …

#metoo

What  women say privately about  the  #Me too…movement differs considerably from what’s said in public.  So says an opinion piece published by the New York Times recently.

Aptos Psychologist:  Seems like the #Me Too …. encourages young woman to view themselves as frail victims?  Let’s raise kids (boys and girls) to view themselves as strong and capable.

Want lower premiums, more choice & freedom from Obama-Care rules? Trump’s proposed rule lets individuals & small businesses freedom from ACA

Trump's health care reform
Trump’s proposed health care rule offers relief from high premiums and freedom to choose

Whew!  Trump offers relief from Obama-Care’s many requirements   and high premiums.   Trump’s health care proposal  [The Wall Street Journal, Friday, Jan 5, 2018] offers  millions of self-employed and small businesses freedom to purchase  health insurance plans that don’t comply with Obama’s  Affordable Care Act.

Time to speak up and say what you think.  The new rule will be published Friday in the Federal Register and undergo a 60 day comment period.

The Trump administration also plans to release a proposal to pave the way for more short-term health policies with fewer benefits.

The proposal was praised by the National Restaurant Association and the National Retail Association as a way for small  businesses to have the same bargaining power as large companies, leveling the playing field.  Self-employed people who don’t get subsidies also heralded the proposed changes in rules.

—————————–

Aptos Psychologist Cameron Jackson:  Getting rid of the requirement that all Americans must purchase health insurance — which is part of the recent legislation that reduces taxes for 80% of Americans — that was a huge step towards more choice.  This proposal means that mom’s working from home as sole proprietors can get health care for themselves and their  family. Whew.

Look don’t touch! — woman’s cleavage an invitation says Rep Marccy Kaptur [D-Ohio]

cleavage  can be an invitation to harassment says Rep Marcy Kaptur privately

 Clothing which shows cleavage an invitation to harassment  says Rep. Marcy Kaptur  [D-Ohio] privately.

“I saw a member yesterday with her cleavage so deep it was down to the floor,” Kaptur said, according to the sources present. “And what I’ve seen … it’s really an invitation.” The comments left many others in the room stunned, the sources said. From Politico.

Kaptur said women on Capitol Hill should have to abide by a stricter dress code, like those adopted by the military or corporations.

“Maybe I’ll get booed for saying this, but many companies and the military [have] a dress code,” she said. “I have been appalled at some of the dress of … members and staff. Men have to wear ties and suits.”


Aptos Psychologist:  More decorum coming soon?  Not likely.    Women students wear P.J.s to night  law classes.   In Aptos, women wear bathing suits with minor cover up to get groceries. The image you present does affect how people interact with you.

new CA sexual harassment HELP line – for ALL genders starts DEC 1

sexual harassment HELP LINE in CA

 New CA Sexual Harassment HELP LINE: 323.545.0333

If you got no help contacting Nancy Pelosi regarding sexual harassment — try this resource.

 Hollywood, California-based non-profit organization called Women in Film (WIF) announced this week that it is launching a “sexual harassment help line” on December 1.

The group, which “advocates for and advances the careers of women working in the screen industries – to achieve parity and transform culture,” says the helpline will help by providing legal aid, counseling, and advice to men, women, and youth who have experienced or are experiencing sexual harassment.

The William Morris/Endeavor (WME) talent agency provided seed funding for the sexual harassment help line. However, WIF says it still needs to raise $25,000 to help launch the helpline.

“Since early October, the world’s attention has been focused on the unfolding story of countless allegations of sexual harassment against many powerful men in the entertainment industry,” a statement from WIF  read. “In response, Women In Film is launching a Sexual Harassment Help Line — an integrated program to refer victims of harassment to designated mental health counselors, law enforcement professionals, and civil and criminal lawyers and litigators.”

Southern California Public Radio reported that WIF stated: “Anyone, regardless of gender, can access the Sexual Harassment Help Line at 323.545.0333. The Help Line will go live beginning FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1 at 10 am PST.  It will be open M-F from 10am-5pm.”

The helpline is being launched in response to a multitude of sexual harassment allegations and revelations against mostly men in the film, news, and entertainment industries. In addition to that, years of sexual misconduct have started to surface against politicians, both in Washington and in various state capitals.
