Today is a very special day for many of the young men and women going forth into the world. It’s very frightening not knowing what you will be up against. It gets more complex when there is no VALIDATION of who you are, what you can achieve, or who you may become.
There is greater complexity when you have an extraordinary mind, unique abilities, with multiple learning styles and multiple intelligence. Different learning styles need to be incorporated. You were BORN WITH and will continue to LIVE WITH these unique abilities.
Your struggles in school were difficult and your education is based on UNTRADITIONAL METHODS with many ACCOMMODATIONS. The school of today is slowly RECOGNIZING every child cannot be taught by TRADITIONAL methods. TRADITIONAL METHODS, logical and linguistic, hinder your learning. The world is not a TRADITIONAL PLACE and you will make many changes in your life adjusting and readjusting those ACCOMMODATIONS suited for your LIFESTYLE. Change and Adaptability are difficult for many. It gets really hard for some folks. WEE-DOGGY! I know that sounds strange.
Now you young folks of today would say YO-DIGGITY NO DOUBT. I’m getting there. This was taken from an old guy name JED CLAMPETT from the BEVERLY HILLBILLIES. JED was a 1% who had NO SENSE about money. He struck oil and moved next door to SPEAKER BOEHNER, and Mitch McConnell. Things haven’t been right for these guys since JED came to town. BLACK WALNUT, BLACK GOLD, BLACK IS THE NEW PINK, BLACK FRIDAY, BLACK ME, is very disturbing to the GOP. The BLACK GOLD spikes their GREED and their NEEDS are always placed above others.
The HILLBILLIES we are dealing with today care only about themselves, and TAX CUTS for the RICH. Let the POOR BE POOR, to hell with jobs and infrastructure, and screw the MIDDLE CLASS. Ask the GOP, REPUBLICANS, TEA PARTY, the PRETENDERS/CONTENDERS how they really feel.
The bottom line, you might not have this label that society has bestowed upon you if they had stepped up their game and had become more flexible, adaptable, and willing to change. In the mainstream, you were considered to be a “BRIGHT STUDENT”. In SPECIAL EDUCATION you were labeled as “DISABLED”. The RIGHT WING may not have been labeled HILLBILLIES if they weren’t so “DOG-GONE CONSERVATIVE.” WEE-DOGGY! UNDER the BUSH ADMINISTRATION you were an ENDANGERED SPECIES, a TAX CUT, and you would be LEFT BEHIND. The schools continued to force down the throats of the students who sit here before me repetition, book-based learning, and they used many types of examination to pressure students for review and reinforcement. The teachers were forced to lie to keep from educating the DISABLED. You were viewed as broken and damaged. You were cast aside and you were ON YOUR OWN. I’m proud to say, “YOU ENDURED IT and MADE IT” through all the changes even though you were not properly ACCOMMODATED.
You suffered when you showed perseverance and impulsive tendencies. It was a toss-up between RICK PERRY and NEWT GINGRICH. You were bullied and made fun of because of the many blunders due to the lack of expressive-receptive language. MITT ROMNEY, RICK PERRY, NEWT GINGRICH fought hard over this characteristic/trait and pulled MICHELLE BACHMAN’S hair out of her head for beating the GANG of THREE. You were accused of harassment because you were unable to understand boundaries. You did not understand how to initiate conversation. Once you got started you did not understand how to end the conversation. You needed someone there to cue you in, to cut you off, and say to move away from the individual so you would not look as though you were “CREEPY”.
HERMAN CAIN was at the top of his game on this one. HERMAN was disqualified because he “CHEATED” in more ways than one. He knew exactly where he was standing when he was talking to his accuser. He demonstrated the height of the lady and compared her height to his wife. Now he knows where he stands. OUT THE DOOR. He was disqualified from the DEBATES and the PRETENDERS RACE. He really is “CREEPY”. You have difficulty identifying with figures of authority. People think of you as arrogant, disrespectful with implosive/explosive behaviors. NEWT GINGRICH and DONALD TRUMP have a TUG-OF-WAR over this characteristic/trait. You were taunted and teased because you lacked organization skills. TIMING was off and you could not be TIMED TESTED, pushed for deadline dates, and had problems with EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONS.
CONGRESS is the LEGISLATIVE BRANCH they ROCK this characteristic/trait. They have nothing on you and they own this one. You were ridiculed for your clumsiness, coordination, and you had to try really hard to participate in sports. Any type of competition or debate would manifest your TRUE BEHAVIOR. Debates are not a format that you can handle due to the inability to stay focused. RICK PERRY is the KING. In one of his debates, he proved this to be a straight-up FACT. RICK PERRY exceeded with flying colors. He got into a Debate that set him up for failure due to the way he processes information, the organization of the information, and the amount of TIME he had to process the information in. Once the environment becomes overstimulating and distracting, the attentional deficit kicks in. All of the PRETENDERS/CONTENDERS DEBATES are held in a large arena. If the question is given with any abstract language then the answer can become “OOPS, I MADE A BOO BOO!”
It is hard for some of you to think creatively or abstractly. I now understand NOT to ask the question in the format of CAN YOU IMAGINE, WHAT IF, IF YOU WERE ME, PUT YOURSELF IN MY PLACE IF YOU WERE IN MY SHOES. It is hard for you to keep track or switch gears. You are truthful by NO-FAULT and people hate the TRUTH, the questions, and the questions you challenge them on. RON PAUL is a fine example of TRUTH-BY-NO-FAULT. He sticks to his GUNS.
Yes, today you have become MASTERFUL EDUCATORS. You are the TRUE PROFESSIONALS and TRUE TEACHING TOOLS. YOU WILL SURVIVE. It is NOT to say that you are incapable of learning strategies and coping skills to help with the multiple deficits you have in your life. It is NOT to say you are entirely incapable of controlling your behavior once it has manifested. It IS to say you can go out into the world and LAUNCH your LIFE with the continued teaching of the APPROPRIATE BEHAVIORS, SOCIAL SKILLS, and LIFE SKILLS given the OPPORTUNITY. You have a jump-start on those who have not been tested. It is very hard to deal with the unknown.
You were once UNRECOGNIZED. You are NOW RECOGNIZABLE.
In 1869 HARVARD COLLEGE was the first in the UNITED STATES to bestow the highest distinction of honors to their graduates. From the period of 1872-1879 based on your grade point average of 90% or better the highest Latin honorary distinction of SUMMA-CUM-LAUDE was awarded. The LATIN honorary distinction of CUM-LAUDE graduating with honors was also awarded during this TIME period. IN 1880 based on your grade point average of 80%, the LATIN term magna-cum-laude was bestowed. Today, I look upon this entire class as VALEDICTORIANS. I know we can all sing together. There was a TIME when we would say we cannot talk at the same TIME. Even this has changed with the HUMAN MICROPHONES dishing out the microphone checks.
It has taken your NEUROLOGICAL DISORDER with UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS to POINT OUT and have others PAY CLOSE ATTENTION to the INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS of the GOP, CONGRESS, REPUBLICANS, TEA PARTY, BLUE DOG DEMOCRATS and those members of the BLACK CONGRESSIONAL CAUCUS with their own agendas. In life, we are sometimes given the worse scenario to rule out the characteristics and traits of the most common diagnosis. If you had no clue why the WORDS did not match the RESPONSE and ACTION of the INDIVIDUAL, YOU DO NOW. It is the POWER of APPROPRIATE WORDS that if given to the individual which will IGNITE the APPROPRIATE RESPONSE and ACTION, to keep the individual from being listed on the CHART of STUPIDITY. Worse scenario, when there is no INTERVENTION the individual is ranked high on the IGNORANT LIST.
Whenever there is BLUNDER it is to be CORRECTED and REDIRECTED IMMEDIATELY. No corrections or redirections of the PRETENDERS/CONTENDERS dialogue were made when they had their BLUNDERS and the audience clapped. No corrections or redirecting took place when the PRESIDENT was CALLED a LIAR. No correction or redirection was given to MITCH McCONNELL, JOHN BOEHNER, ERIC CANTOR, PAUL RYAN, MICHELLE BACHMAN, ALAN WEST, JIM DEMINT, SARAH PALIN and many others in the GOP. Today they will graduate with honors in the areas of OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE and INEQUALITY for WE THE PEOPLE and OUR NATION.(MAGNA-CUM-LAUDE) Take a closer look at the BEHAVIORS of BILL O’REILLY, SHAWN HANNITY, ANN COULTER (WHO HAS HER OWN BLACKS), STEVE DEUCY, GRETCHEN CARLSON, BRIAN KILMEADE, ERIC BOLLING all at FOX NEWS. Today they will graduate with honors of INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIORS(CUM-LAUDE).
You wonder why NEWT GINGRICH is out of control, has explosive/implosive behaviors, something just doesn’t add up and many others who display INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIORS. He has plenty of role models. Take a look at the environment and what the people ACCEPT as ACCEPTABLE. The UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS with neurological deficits want to COMPLY because they are tired of being punished, isolated, and labeled as being UNACCEPTABLE. The INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS purpose is to destroy and break down the EMOTIONS and the SELF-WORTH of the individual.
It took the WORD APPEASER to put the INTENTIONAL BLUNDERS at the top of the IGNORANT CHART. It took MARTIN BASHIR LESSON WITHIN LESSONS to show the INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS of MITT ROMNEY. ED SCHULTZ played sound bites to demonstrate how the PRETENDERS/CONTENDERS all jumped on board. They failed to do any research. It took those very sound bites from ED SCHULTZ’S SHOW to demonstrate the dignity, grace, and respect the PRESIDENT of our NATION displayed to give credit to the TROOPS. GOP did not get the message because they are so busy trying to APPEASED the 1%. In the paper, it was printed in BOLD TYPED LETTERS, THE GOP JUST DON’T CARE by ROLAND MARTIN. It was RACHEL MADDOW overhead sign that displayed the WORD BLUNDER. I knew it was “COMMENCEMENT TIME”. This would be the making of another LIFE MOVIE, “INCEPTION 2.”
CHA-CHING! We all have come so far. We have higher mountains to climb and roads to travel when looking at the BEHAVIORS from the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART. It has been a challenge but we must continue to LOOK “OUTSIDE OF THE BOX” and be DIVERGENT THINKERS.
To the GRADUATING CLASS of 2012, those who sit before me diagnosed with NLD SYNDROME, hold your heads up high. You are a HUMAN LIFE beyond the SYNDROME and the DIAGNOSIS. Today you will graduate with the highest honors.(SUMMA-CUM-LAUDE)
NLD SYNDROME has opened the eyes of many. You have sung SMOKEY ROBINSON’S song, POINTED OUT. The traits/characteristic of NLD SYNDROME has brought CLARITY to many and CLOSURE to others. It made the DEMOCRATS, the MEDIA, attorneys, parents, and people all over the WORLD PAY CLOSE ATTENTION. It is truly an HONOR to be in the PRESENCE of the graduating class with NLD SYNDROME. It took everything that you were unable to do, struggle with, being ostracized, and punished to call out the GOP, REPUBLICANS, and the TEA PARTY.
This is not a DEFICIT. This is NLD SYNDROMES GREATEST STRENGTH. You have revealed to the WORLD who are the COWARDS, who showed WEAKNESS, who DENOUNCE POLICIES, and who OBSTRUCTED JUSTICE AND EQUALITY FOR ALL. YES, WE CAN understand and can distinguish INAPPROPRIATE INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS. It took some TIME but we have chosen to continue to LEARN and LEARN MORE. The BEHAVIORS of RUSH LIMBAUGH, GLEN BECK (A.K.A. HAROLD HILL), RUPERT MURDOCK and the FAST 5, the GREED of the BANKS, and the 1% demonstrated denouncement of PROGRESSIVENESS. They did not CARE.
At this TIME, can I have the entire class of VALEDICTORIANS please stand(everyone rises). I have been accused of being a SOCIALIST, MARXIST, and I’m definitely not the FLAVOR OF THE MONTH. I’m not a bragger but I’m PERSISTENT. I have been told NO every step of the way.I have flaws. I’m HUMAN. I’M FOR THE PEOPLE and the needs of the PEOPLE come FIRST. Today is the first day of LIFE’S NEW CHALLENGES. You were born with many NEW CHALLENGES. You were rejected many TIMES because of the CHALLENGES. You must always remember never stop trying, there will always be CHALLENGES.
To diminish the CHALLENGES you must not deny that you have been CHALLENGED. You can never stop CARING about the OPPOSITION of the CHALLENGER. You must study the COMPOSITION of the CHALLENGES placed before you. You must rise above your CHALLENGES and your CHALLENGER. Once you have address your CHALLENGES, whatever you have been CHALLENGED with or whomever you have been CHALLENGED by will lead you on a path to CARE FOR OTHERS. LIFE IS our GREATEST CHALLENGE. THIS IS HARD YARD UNIVERSITY. THE CHALLENGES IN LIFE CAN MAKE THIS YARD HARD.
CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?
it is time for people to learn and accept the different learning styles and stop making the other learning styles not part of the teaching culture. it is time to make a change and realize that change is good and sometimes tradition needs to change its routine to aid those who cant learn in a certain way.
I love you.
It truly is a hard knock life. The school of hard knocks will teach you. love you too
