Jon LyStarting over doesn’t have to be so bad. Endings are not always painful and sad. Starting over is another way of surviving. Another way of writing a new story. Another chance at a better life. Starting over gives you a choice. A choice to become a better person. A choice to forget the past,…

well done, dickhead


I can relate to ALMOST DRANK THE KOOL -AID. It was my maternal Uncles who were the antagonists, not my Dad. I never drank their KOOL-AID and made damn sure it was never offered to my son when I became an adult. #PeaceMarshall


Well done, dickhead. Australian proverb. Was my dad’s favourite saying. Might still be. He used it mostly when driving. Like say, if someone cut him off in traffic, or didn’t use their indicator, he’d yell, ‘well done, dickhead,’ out the window. If he could. If they weren’t within range of his booming voice, he’d say it anyway. Because, you know, it had to be said.

Oh yes, it was completely a sarcastic jibe. Not one you’d ever want to be at the end of. Sometimes it was dad’s players at the receiving end of a “well done, dickhead.” Which was when they knew they were doing a shit job.

For the record — I never actually call my dad, Dad. To be honest I don’t refer to him at all. Is probably why am spitefully refusing to use a capital ‘d’. We’re not exactly on speaking terms. Yet mentioning his…

” You will never have greater or lesser dominion than that over your self…the height of a man’s success is gauged by his self-mastery; the depth of his failure by his self-abandonment…and this law is the expression of eternal justice. He who can not establish dominion over himself will have no dominion over others “

This post was going to be an open letter to all the Haters I seem to have cultivated over the last two months. I planted no seeds to grow haters, they sprang up on their own like weeds. I was prepared to launch a full head-on frontal assault, with no prisoners taken and not a single body left standing. Like the ancient Spartan’s, I was to return carrying my shield or being carried on it. That is a serenade I have courted trespassers on my domain with my entire life. However, last night I had what is known as a moment of clarity. A most rare event. The objective of any battle is to win, in my world there are no ties, time-outs, surrender or last-minute pardons. If I am in it, then I am in it to win it. I realized that I did not have a winning game plan. I was about to give them the exact thing they were after. That would have assured them a victory. To deny them what they sought, assured me of victory. I then unloaded and dismounted. I could give the names of the principle player and the lap-dogs that joined in to serve their master. The url to the post that started the entire thing. You could read for yourself the entire discord. I disagreed with the political point the post made. I am not a gambler, but I would bet the farm that if you read the post, you will have the same reaction as I had. Granted, none of you would have turned it into the blood sport that I did. This went on for a full week. I finally started to just ignore them. After about two weeks they tired of the game and stopped. Well, they came back. I ignored them again and as before they stopped. Like a fly, who does nothing but eat shit and bother people, they have returned. This time with enforcements and a new tactic added to the old one. They are e-mailing me directly and calling !  Keep in mind when I answer the phone they hang up. If I do not answer, that is when they leave their message. The e-mail address is from a public location and not their’s. All of this is being done anonymously. There are many reasons a person preferrs to remain anonymous. Some are very noble. In this case, it is the hallmark of a COWARD. I actually was shocked at just how many character traits I have. Here are a few: #ignorantredneck, #racistsonofabitch, #attemptingtohidemyhomosexual, #poorwhitetrailertrash, #whitesuperiority and the list goes on and on. The best one of them all, I found out that I reside In off all places in #thebasketofdeplorables. Guess what, all of you who follow my blog or like one of my posts are my neighbors we live in the same basket. How cool is that ! Let me move on. Wait, I forgot the good part. My bad, the male who wrote the post condeming the election and calling for a change in the way we vote and basicly would wipe his ass with the constitution, is not even an american. He is british and lives in london. Can it get any better ? I am done with the entire matter, have taken messures to prevent futher involvement and washing my hands. My last comment will be the images below.

The message I have for all of you, of which I count as friends is a simple one. No one owns you or holds the title to your life. You are the only person who gets to design your domion. The only way someone or thing can take possession of your domion is with your permission. Deny them access. If some theif has taken it, go get it back. If that can not be done, abandon it and start a new one. The lies told about you and to you, that you have come to believe are not real. You are not made in someone elses vision of you. Do not let that vision be the one you see in the mirror. It is not the one God made for you and it is not the one I see. The stigmas and stereotypes that you have been labeled with are just someones opinion. They can have their own opinion, but they can not have their own facts or re-write history. In the words of Stone Cold Steve Austin ” Now thats the bottom line, because I said so. I may negotiate for peace, but I will be damned If I will ever surrender for it !  What say you ?  Peace,  Marshall

It’s not about mental illness: The big lie that always follows mass shootings by white males –

Blaming “mental illness” is a cop-out — and one that lets us avoid talking about race, guns, hatred and terrorism

This article reveals that what I have believed for years is not only true, but why and by who. The mentally ill in our country are being ” thrown under the bus ” It is like saying that not all mentally ill people are terrorist, but all terrorist are mentally ill ! Read the article and you will understand. I will post latter about my own personal experience, both as a witness and a target!  Peace,  Marshall
