Woke up yesterday getting to my process of starting my day by tightening up. As usual, I tend to put toothpaste on my toothbrush first, then hit it with a little water, which I did, but this day was different.
I noticed how the water appeared to be struggling a little while coming out the faucet all while I’m starting to brush my teeth, so you already know my spidy senses kicked in right?
So I flushed the toilet, then went and turned the knob for the bathtub, and that’s when things got real.
WTH!!!!! All I could think of was the water crisis in Flint Michigan. Water coming out and as it filled the tub, it was as dark as the color of lager beer.
All I could say was HELL NAW!!!!!! So I got self together, and made a move, because I had some runs to make, and then while in the midst I would also do my due diligence by asking some questions.
Come to find out when I asked some workers for the city, it was said that a water pipe had broken, and when I told him what the water looked like even he was kinda in a bit of a shock to what I had told him, and then the other worker was rushing him away. So a broken pipe was the case.
Later on within the day, I did feel a little off as far as my throat and stomach, but I think I’ll be alright, but when I tell you all I was thinking about was the Flint, Michigan situation, you can only imagine.
But I guess this was naught the case being that, the water pipe broke instead of being intentionally switched.
I just hope and pray that, they flush the system thoroughly, because from the color and the grit that was left in the tub alone speaks for itself. I also have to stress how important it is for oneself to be, and stay on top of things as well when it comes to things that go on in your city and state (Kalamazoo) (Michigan).
People run around complaining about certain things, but yet don’t do their due diligence by at least taking the time to get off their behind, and (SMART PHONE) and ask questions.
Expecting these elected people who are representatives, and employees of the government to just cater to your lack in care unless it benefits you to me, is like a baby whining to the nanny about their wants, but yet talk big and loud about how ya winning, and all this frivolous fat man talk, but don’t even know how to conduct self when dealing with these people who are public officials.
Anyway, I just wanted to share this with those who have subscribed to my Knowledge And Music Email List, and those in Kalamazoo who may find what i have to say of some interest, and may naught have known about this. I also would like to extend my most sincerest appreciations to the Kalamazoo City Of Kalamazoo, and it’s workers who were on top of this immediately, Chief Adam the Great X would like to say thank you, and this S/O is for you.
On an end note. One would have to ask how much do people really appreciate where they live, and those who are put in position to make it livable and safe?
We as the real people must step up even when those who are willing naught to don’t, but naught in a hostile way, but in a way that the creator (God) needs you to, because at the end of the day this is about knowing what is, what isn’t and what is possible.
Know your power, and govern it accordingly, because with great power, it also comes with a greater responsibility.
There is so much going on in this world today, that it tends to make you a bit paranoid, and that is because of some of the corrupted acts that have been demonstrated by those whom we’ve placed our trust in to be upright and just.
It ain’t the same no more, and some people’s acts are horrible, and makes you feel as if EVERYTHING IS CORRUPT, but the only thing one can do is do what one can do within ones abilities, and know what you are dealing with In These Dayz Of Tyme.
Just my thoughts though for your awareness may this reach those who it reaches in high spirits.
Did governor Rick Snyder show an act of war by lying to the people not only in Flint, but Michigan as a whole?
I thought Clean water is a necessity for all the people
I just read an article that, I wouldn’t say that I’m speechless to, but is a real eye opener when it comes to the Crisis in Flint, Michigan, and those who are voted for, and elected to represent for the real people, but one must also ask are you considered as one of the people?
When you think about some of the people who have held office as a public servant and figure, and most importantly a LEADER who has been voted for and elected to hold a high power position such as “governor” like John Engler for instance who made a modern type slavery deal with Virginia back in 1998 has been known to violate the human rights of people in Michigan. And breaching the trust of the people tends to be nothing new under the sun.
Kinda makes you wonder WHO some of these people really are doesn’t it? And what People do these representatives for the people do they really hold a best interest for? Well, the way I am seeing it; history has found itself repeating again through people like governor Rick Snyder (Republican) for the people of the State of Michigan who clearly caught himself up by saying one thing when it turns out that, it actually shows in (LIVING COLOR) to be a different projection. So, my question if I asked Rick Snyder; would be: “Is this true what has been published about you saying that, the water in Flint, Michigan was safe when you and your administration knew months prior to that it wasn’t?”
See, here’s the thing with me, I know how the media is, and I also know how there is truth mixed with lies, which means that, I have to be cautious of what I consider to be the truth when it comes to second and third-party talk. I don’t like just off the back start accusing and condemning people, and just out right saying Hey! “Your guilty” even though that feeling is not mutual in the minds of those who are in power that I see to play and juggle the lives of people’s health and well-being when it comes to policy, profit, police harassment, arrest, charges, State Statutes, court administration and judgement.
So what I’m saying is that, until you show me otherwise, I don’t get off by targeting people and judging people, but this situation with the #FlintWaterCrisis really calls for some unanswered questions to be answered to why? Yea, I know that one of the main reasons was to cut cost in 2014 so he had the water supply switched from Detroit to Flints River? Why would anyone even think of doing something like that, a river?
But look what happened as a result; a much worse situation for the people and at the expense, the health and lives of the people who have to live in Flint, and it looks like Detroit to, because when switched back, the crap from the river (Lead) and only God knows what else leached its way possibly into Detroit’s pipes?
But this doesn’t just effect the city of Flint and or Flint City, it has an effect on Michigan as a whole, why? Because is Flint not recognized as a part of Michigan? Some people may not care, because it hasn’t hit home, but in all actuality it has, just not as bad. So then my next question would be; is this an act of war on the lives of the people who deserve, and are clearly entitled to life liberty, well-being and safety here in the Great Lakes State?
And when I say war, I mean one who is committing aWar Crime act against human beings who supposed to have human rights, civil rights and universal rights under the rule of law.
The definition of a war crime specifically states that:“It is usually, crimes committed against an enemy, prisoners of war, or subjects in wartime that violate international agreements or, as in the case of genocide, are offenses against humanity.”
So, based off of the definition above are residents of Flint and or citizens being considered as enemies? Prisoners? And have some how violated international law? Ones knowingly and willful intent by saying that, the water was safe to use when one clearly knew that it wasn’t was to use the Flint River as a weapon against the enemy, which would be the people/civilians and residents who live in Flint?
Now, I’m not saying that, that’s what Rick Snyder did and or was his intent, it is what the people see and decide, I’m just saying that that’s the way it appears through ones actions doe it not?
So now that all this back fired, he is now looking to the aid and assistance of the U.S. Government “FEMA” and national guards to help with this situation that was intentionally created. I really see something more to this situation than what it is being seen to be, and if what I am saying is correct, and my thoughts on it is correct then my next question would be to governor Rick Snyder: “Why would you treat living beings like this?
Are the people/civilians and residents being used as a way to dodge the bullet? Are the people (Black People) and (White People) if that’s what you want to say; being used as a way out for you and your business deals? To me, that is no different from you doing what you want to do with your property, which would then be seen as slavery, and I thought that had ended Dec. 6, 1865 by President Abraham Lincoln within the constitution for the united States of America 13th amendment and the constitution of Michigan 1835 ARTICLE XI PROHIBITION OF SLAVERY1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude shall ever be introduced into this state, except for the punishment of crimes of which the party shall have been duly convicted.
And 1863 Article 1.Slavery and involuntary servitude. Sec. 9. Neither slavery, nor involuntary servitude unless for the punishment of crime, shall ever be tolerated in this state. Both for Michigan.
But one might say that, this isn’t about slavery, this is about the health and safety of the people,residents and citizens of Flint right? Well then; Equal protection; discrimination. Sec.2. No person shall be denied the equal protection of the laws; nor shall any person be denied the enjoyment of his civil or political rights or be discriminated against in the exercise thereof because of religion, race, color or national origin. The legislature shall implement this section by appropriate legislation.
So, that alone say’s what it says, so why are those who are entitled to the same enjoyments being stripped of those rights and enjoyments that, clearly Rick Snyder and others who are wealthy (White People) is what y’all say, I say Caucasians enjoying clean water in they’re homes and community?
It just pays to just do the right thing, but maybe his hands are tied or something. Hell, I don’t know, but what I do know is that, many lives have been effected, and placed at a major health risk, is this some type of Sacrifice? We know that, part of it is all about money and profit, but to INTENTIONALLY POISON A CITY OF PEOPLE WHO ARE INHABITANTS, AND GET AWAY WITH IT WITH JUST AN APOLOGY? No one deserves this from the people who ask for your trust, but the thing about it, I don’t think that those people are being affected.
I just feel like it’s more to it, is him and his family subject to the crisis? Bet he in the comfort of his home chilling with his family right now DRINKING ICE COLD CLEAN WATER ON THE ROCKS (ICE) while others are suffering. I just don’t see the equality in that under the law. But you wanna know something? What if the civilians, and residents in Flint and Michigan period for that matter were being labeled, and considered as ENEMIES and why?
What happened to what we call #Pure Michigan was that all a just a sound good thing to scream just to get the peoples trust just to betray them? And then when these type of situations pop up guess who it affects the most? Guess whose always in the front being abused and violated the most? Native/Black, African-American People, Negroes, Color People, 3/4 less than human beings and whatever you want to see and or title people with a darker tone, but we are still the people, some may act otherwise, but what do you expect?
Look at the backgrounds, the pain, the suffering and hate pushed on my people of the same skin tone, and in the end we are, and have been the most effected, the most out of all in all of these damn wars and crisis’ when it comes to a scattered, torn apart and distanced people why?
So, could black people be the target and being considered as enemies? If so why? But, as I see it so far, this isn’t a racial issue. All races who live in that city are targets, and have been affected by the effects and this type of nonsense just needs to stop.
I just call it how I see it, and it’s going to take more than just prayer. The Creator (God) sees what is happening, and maybe it has to happen in order for the real people to wake up, and realize that, the true power lies within the real people, and to reach back to the Creator for ones dependence.
“And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them, And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that help thee.”~Exodus 15:25-26
So, can you see what this is saying? And this happened way before you and I. So is it a racial hate crime thing? No, because other races too are affected by this CALAMITY.
“Whereas it is essential, if men and women are not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that (HUMAN RIGHTS) TO LIVE SHOULD BE PROTECTED BY THE RULE OF LAW.”
And so, I say to the residents, civilians and people in Flint, Michigan Rise up! And know the power that you all possess to reverse this mess, and Don’t Riot, don’t give any reason for them to see you as the enemy, you areinhabitants, you are the people whether they feel you are less.
You have rights, and those rights were infringed upon, and intentionally violated the moment the trust was breached when a lie and deception was used, and that is so wrong for those who hold office and or anyone to do to us. It is time that, those who hold these offices be held accountable for they’re misdeeds, wrong doings and HEINOUS ACTS committed upon the innocent just for profit and gain, image and control.
If Rick Snyder broke any laws especially the law of the land and international law he and those responsible within his administration should be held liable and accountable for the damage, and losses that the people may, and have suffered especially the loss of life done to the people in Flint, Michigan mentally, physically and financially.
And, I say to you governor Rick Snyder that, and this is in noway to cast judgement on you, but to merely say that, I’m praying for not only Flint, but all of Michigan and even you, and you really need to make this right for all of Michiganand it’s people by taking full responsibility for the acts committed against the people/National/Citizens/Residents in Flint, Michigan, and even Detroit too, because switching the system back did nothing more than place the people in Detroit in the same situation?Just make it right.
One affected should have some type of effect on other cities in Michigan. What happened to #PureMichigan? or is it just pure for a certain favored percentage/group who are blessed with privilege. And is this an attempt to turn Flint and Michigan into a third world city?
In no way is this an attempt to be hostile, belligerent, hateful controversial none of that, I am one who stands to be corrected if I am saying anything that is in error. And to my readers feel free to like, comment, share and speak on how you feel about this major issue. I just want to see things set right, and cease with all of these ungodly acts of senseless for profit attacks.
