They felt Walmart was trying to force them back on the job by asking them were they able to come back. The associate felt bullied. Their position was not job-protected.

Does the employee have a right to their job at the end of their leave?

Employers with 25 or more employees are required to return the employee to the same or equivalent position upon their return to work.

Employers with fewer than 25 employees are required to return the employee to the same or equivalent position upon the return to work,

Unless:

The employees’s position no longer exist due to an economic downtime or other circumstances caused by a public health emergency during the period of the FMLA.

AND

The employer has made reasonable attempts to return the employee to an equivalent position. The employer must make efforts to return the employee to work for up to one year following the employee’s leave. I hope this answers you question Sabrina H.

Q. Do employees have a right to return to their positions after taking expanded leave. A. Generally, yes. Employers are prohibited from firing, disciplining, or refusing to reinstate employees because they took expanded sick leave or family and medical leave. However, employees are not protected from employer actions (such as layoffs or furloughs) that are unrelated to the employee(s) leave. Visit http://www.bakerlaw.com.

The following questions:

We require employees to use sick/acrued PTO etc. for FMLA absences. Can we do so here?

Can the employee voluntarily use their employer-provided leave benefits (such as PTO/vacation/sick time) if they want?

Thank you, Bill and Melinda Gates, for your contribution. During this pandemic crisis, the world needs trusted people so our lives can move FORWARD. Nancy P. I will remain hopeful and prayerful. I will think of you as I move toward my refrigerator and get my Ben and Gerry, Chunky Monkey ice cream out of the freezer. Take a break and go grab your chocolate candy and ice cream. Smack your lips. I get it. I enjoy myself because I’m chocolate. Let them eat cake while we enjoy our ice cream. The party has only been delayed. The party is not over. There is HOPE!

COVID-19_Walmart

Hi! My name is Linda Garrett. I have worked for Walmart Corporation for 19 years at store 2857 Boardwalk Square. I ‘ve never taken a leave of absence. I’ve always respected TIME, DISEASE, ILLNESS, and DEATH. I was fortunate to use my Disability/PTO TIME wisely to handle my adversities. Unlike some people, I have TOTAL AUTHORITY over NOTHING. At this moment in TIME, I only wish to CONTROL my BREATHING and be surrounded by the necessary VENTILATION call FRESH AIR. Steve Collison and Maeve Reston of CNN please hear me out.

Hey! I notice an error. I am far far from perfect. I am not using Disability/PTO.  I meant to say The Family First Coronavirus Response Act Paid Leave and Paid Sick Time.

Where is the window? I need some fresh air. I can’t breathe in this filthy room. Buildings had tilted windows and push out windows many years ago. What happened? My nausea and headache would probably go away. I haven’t heard one person ask any questions about windows in relationship to COVID-19. Is it close to 7:00 am? When I step outside this building I will not take my fresh air for granted. Fresh Air.

!.) helps the digestive tract (oxygen intake digest food efficiently)

2.) helps in weight loss

3.) improves heart rate and blood pressure

4.) gives you breathing room (the body doesn’t work as hard for oxygen)

5.) increase serotonin

6.) strengthen the immune system (oxygen increases)

7.) white blood cells function properly fighting germs and killing bacteria

8.) cleans our lungs (dilated lungs more increase in oxygen, airborne toxin release when you exhale)

9.) does wonder for your brain

10.) more energy and one can concentrate and stay focus.

Reverse the airflow and no Fresh Air. What happens when you have these health conditions or everyone begins to look like they have these medical conditions? COVID-19 is knocking at the door trying to get in. Whew! I have a lot of concerns. I keep hearing the word second wave. I’m not hearing the word mutation. Coronavirus appears to have similar symptoms of the following respiratory disorder below only intensified by ¶ (pi).

At some point in time, COVID-19 will touch every human host on the planet.  It is learning the different DNAs of all different races.  This virus doesn’t care if you are Caucasoid (White): Negroid (Black): Capoid (Bushmen/Hottentots): Mongoloid(Oriental/Amerindian): Australoid(Australian Aborigine and Papuan). Whew! Reminds me of the movie 1956 Invasion Of The Body Snatchers’.   The remake of  Invasion Of The  Body Snatchers’ was filmed in 1978. COVID-19 will change or mutate along the way.  How much can the body’s immune system take?

bronchiectasis: lungs and airflow become damage It is hard to clear mucous.

Symptoms: phlegm, productive cough, recurrent infection

Pneumonia: infection that inflames the air sacs in one are both lungs, which may fill the lungs with fluid.

Symptoms: sharp chest pain, clammy skin, dehydration

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: a group of lung diseases that blocks the airflow and make it difficult to breathe.

Acute Bronchitis: inflammation of the lining of the brachial tubes, which carry air to and from the lungs.

Symptoms: dry cough, productive cough, shortness of breath

Respiratory Disease: a condition that worsens the structure of the lungs. It can also affect the passageway that leads to the lungs.

Dr. Fauci are you there? I was in the cash office during the night preparing money to be placed in the Self-Check machines for the next day. My hand was scan by the machine. This room was small. I found it hard to breathe. Dirt and dust filled the room. The floor was filthy. Where is the mop? The money recycler was kept in this room. At the start of my shift, the recycler had run its course. Managers were constantly called to the cash office to fix the machine. When the machine was open dust and debris flew everywhere. My shift was 10:00 pm-7:00 am. I knew it would be a long night. Megan V. inform me the recycler was broke again. The machine had been having problems throughout the day.

The money recycler felt as though I was in an airplane at 30,000 feet. A passenger coughs in a compressed air chamber. Oh hell no! There is no escape. Recycled air is dangerously contaminated.  What do you think the mask is for? Two people in a fishbowl turned upside down breathing the same air. Where is the oxygen? Dr. Fauci, explains what happens when you are in a sick room or building? The light bulb flashed in my brain. I looked around and there were no windows or vents. In the corner sat an old out-dated fan. Wilmot Read Hasting Jr., co-founder, CEO of Netflix, are you there? I’ve become the leading lady in the Panic Room. My next contract movie is Box II.

Dr. Fauci, the EPA has a really good article on sick buildings. I’m reading sick_building_factsheet.pdf now. I am beginning to understand what happens when there are no windows or proper ventilation. Walmart qualifies for an Indoor Air Quality Investigation for their sick buildings. Walmarts stores across the nation and all over the world need to be checked. I am quite sure Walmart’s profit in toilet paper along should cover the charges. I’m holding Walmart Inc. and CEO Doug McMillon accountable for the lives of all Walmart associates.  COVID-19_Walmart. This is yet another OSHE VIOLATION and a Walmart Sh*t Hole Decision. Hmmm! Contact OSHA 800-321-6742, 800-321-OSHA, or visit http://www.osha.gov.

It felt as though I was clocking into death Monday-Friday. Pure anxiety! I’ve written stories in this blog about Walmart Home Office controlling the airflow. Thinking about the HVAC (heating and cooling system) made my hair stand on my head. Okay, my wig.  Hey, I ain’t gonna lie. I worried about pollutants, contaminates, and pathways. I was constantly staring up at the vents in the lady’s restroom. I’m bothered by the fact no one has mentioned about windows. I drove around. I couldn’t find buildings with windows or push out windows. The choice for central air and heating may not be the best option with a virus attacking one’s respiratory system. It’s cheaper for our society to pay less for central gas and air. Whew! I will leave it there.

I thought I was going to die at the self-checkout night after night. Only one cashier and I were scheduled in the front end the majority of the time. It was brutal changing out the 8 self-checks. The money cart was so heavy to push. Walmart was always thinking of ways to break down the older associates. Yeah, Joe and Mika, just get rid of the most vulnerable, old people. Writer Gone Rogue_Sh*t In The Box, January 21, 2019, I used a link to show how Walmart plans to force out older associates. I click onto the link and the information was gone. Imagine That. I wonder if Sundar Pichai can shine some light on the link and make it reappear. CEO Doug McMillon needs to take a lesson from Pichai. Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon increase the hiring of their corporation. What a Kill Drill. Read the article Bad News at Google. Here’s How Sundar Pichai Explained It.

There were no Asset Protection at night. Walmart removed the First Responders from the store many years ago. I can think of at least 30 First Responders off the top of my head who checked on me through the night. I want to give a special shout out to KCPD, North, South, East Patrol, Platte County Sherrif Department including Shoal Creek. I want to thank each and every one of the First Responders, The Brew Top Crew, doctors, nurses, EMTs from St. Luke, and North Kansas City Hospital for showing great concern. There is a big difference between social distance and isolation. I felt totally isolated so many nights. You thought I had Ebola.

I knew I would either get rob or killed for having all that money out on the floor. I hated we were next to the airport. Every person stepping off the plane from all over the world could bring a virus from another country. It would tear my body to shreds if the cash office didn’t kill me first. All the carts collected around the store were full of returns. Clothes, toys, chemicals, meats, dairy products, all food items dumped into one basket. Returns were to be separated in customer services.

The returns were separated and returned to the floor. Bacteria on top of Bacteria. Food claims sat right on the side of the service desk next to the cash office on the floor. Spoiled frozen foods, vegetables, dairy products, and meats reeked of the foulest odor. On the grocery side, it was unbelievable. I’ll put it like this, the stench was so bad from all the grocery food claims Deffenbaugh trash trucks probably would refuse to pick up Walmart’s garbage. Hey Katy, are you still alive back there. Katy has worked many years back in the grocery receiving area. I tip my hat to Katy. I can’t believe she has survived all these years. Thank God! Katy is not old. Kiss the kids for me, Katy.

Number 44 (former President Barack Obama), Bill and Melinda Gates, I desperately need your help. On March 13th, CEO Doug McMillon was the first one to hop on the stage and rubber stamp the man’s name I can no longer speak of. There is NO TRUTH in a Rubber Stamp NO REALITY. CEO Doug McMillon is the Advisor to this man. After this man’s response to Charlottesville, McMillon stated, “he missed a critical opportunity to help bring our country together. Check out this article in Forbes. CEO Doug McMillon and Walmart not only missed critical opportunities but failed to be held accountable for the Mental Health of the associates and now their lives. I want only to be surrounded by people I can trust.

I am trying to figure out what country CEO, Doug McMillon is talking about. I’m sure Number 44(formal President Barack Obama), me, and millions of Americans do not wish to live in an Alt World that creates an atmosphere of fear and a country built on hatred and lies. Tell Vice President Joe Biden when you see him I’m so proud of him. Give him the Elbow for me. Makes sure you read the article, What CEO Doug McMillon Has Learned Since Becoming CEO of Walmart. This article was written on April 23, 2019. CEO Doug McMillon shares his thoughts on Leadership, Risk, Time, Trust, and the associates. I would like to share my thoughts and facts.

Trust Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon when they knew this Pandemic was coming. Yeah Right! What playbook to go about business, as usual, does this remind you? Every Walmart employee is at Risk to Die. You call that leadership. Walmart Inc. and CEO Doug McMillon are about to lead 150,000 workers to their death. Ask any associate at store 2857 Boardwalk Square this question. Do they think Walmart Corporation or CEO Doug McMillon care? Call Tips@Buzzfeed.com. 516-415-2358. You can also email Tips@Buzzfeed.com.

Walmart employees need to change the landscape of their silence. Employees’ lives are on the line. Calling Walmart’s Ethics Hotline just won’t cut it. Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon have yet again created another highly Unethical act by keeping their employees in the dark. Let us not forget CEO Doug McMillon is the advisor to who? My point exactly.

CEO Doug McMillon missed several opportunities with Walmart employees. Work retention is inevitable. Walmarts world is not an inclusive environment for employee’s voices to be heard. Walmart’s signature is No One Will Exceed Expectation. Walmart’s behavior only instills a lack of the following: trust, loyalty, recognition, low morale of the associates, and poor management/mismanagement. Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon:

!.) Failed to keep their employees safe before and during COVID-19.

2.) Failed to care about the Mental Health of the associates.

3.) Failed to care and just be humane. (compassionate, empathetic, and supportive)

4.) Failed to hire the right people.

5.) Failed to keep compensation and benefits current.

6.) Failed to engage and pay attention to what the employees feel.

7.) Failed to put the happiness of the employees as a priority.

8.) Failed to recognize and reward employees.

9.) Failed to tell the Truth. Straight Up!

Giving the associates $3oo is not a reward but an insult, VP Dan Barlett of Walmart. I just want CNN Bussiness to know the Facts. I did read the article Enough is Enough, Growth, and Development, Walmart’s Declining Profitability. Bottom line, Sell Walmart. It is not the associate’s civic duty to DIE for a company that keeps the employees in the dark. This was the Thank You Reward for store 2857 associates who worked and risk their lives through COVID-19. Where are the true incentives? Walmart employees all over the world put their lives on the line for this company. Walmart sent the message to these exhausted associates that they are Expendable.

Macy, Dillards, and many stores went on furlough. Lowes gave their associates an extra $2 for hazard pay. Frito-Lay, owned by Pepsico, pay their associates an extra $20 a day, pay associates to stay home, $100 a day to watch your kids, and a $1.00 raise. Dick’s Sporting paid their associates 3 weeks’ and the associates went on furlough. Unlike Walmart and Ceo Doug McMillon,  out in front of the camera every day telling and sell lies. The company gives 11cent raises no higher than 35 cents.  Walmart is a company that evaluates their associates before changing its format and hours in the store. The majority of the supervisors, support managers, department managers step down from their positions, The assistant managers and co-managers are demoted at the dropped of a dime. In the evaluation, Walmart failed the managers/supports/ assistant managers/supervisors in the area they do not INSPIRE their associates. Walmart and CEO Doug Mcmillon do not INSPIRE their employees. This company will HIRE 150,000 more employees to Devalue and expose to COVID-19. You call this company and CEO responsible.

ATTENTION WALMART ASSOCIATES!

Walmart removed a process connected to evaluations. The process was as followed:

1.) warning/verbal

2.) 1st coaching

3.) 2nd coaching

3.) 3rd coaching/termination

Walmart has gone straight to the heart of the matter and the associate’s pockets. Solid Performance year after year doesn’t mean an associate is safe. The needle did not move. Walmart loves to create its own rules.  Walmart does not make laws. How many times are management called out by policy flaws? The next time an associate is called to the assistant manager’s office the conversation can go like this. Walmart is hiring 150,000 new associates and I see you have not made any improvement in the last three years. How do you think this scenero will play out? Oh Wow! What happens to the associates with 3 Need Improvement in their evaluations? Need Improvement is the 3 strikes you are out of the program/job. So to all of the associates push back on your intentional negative evaluations. The law will look at age, race, gender, pay discrimination, and retaliation. Weaponizing the evaluation=wage suppression. Walmart is looking at another way to target certain employees to fire.

What has Walmart done for their associates other than risk the associate’s mental/emotional, physical health, and now the associate’s life? You will not get a copy of your evaluation unless you sign it or make a comment to acknowledge it. Don’t fret, something will go wrong with the machine and you will never see that evaluation. Walmart is very strategic at telling the associates BS and getting the associates to sign their life away. Walmart is ILLEGAL EAGLES.

To Mika Brzezinski Scarborough and Joe Scarborough, I was checking out Shawshank Redemption. Morgan Freeman said we can get busy living or get busy dying. Praying for all of you guys at MSNBC. I have learned so much. A special bond form between each member at MSNBC. I feel that way about the associates at Walmart. Send Sir Chris Matthews my special elbow. He will always forever be a knight at MSNBC roundtable. I am very hopeful. Let’s get busy Living. This is Linda Garrett from store 2857 Boardwalk Square, Kansas City, Mo. Mika and Joe, people get pissed off when you mention their name. That is why I put my name at the top.

COVID-19 is the new sheriff in town. Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon will not play by the rules or end up in court. You can not put a price on a life. Time is the most priceless commodity. We can’t give Time Adjustments when Death waits in line at our Supercenters and Neighborhood Markets. COVID-19_Walmart. Shut the store down. Where is the Store Manager? Where is Dr. Who? Just got word he is leaving the store. Hmmm! The customers are stampeding the store with their income tax and stimulus checks. Crowd control is out of control. The employees are terrified.

A disappearing act by Walmart, CEO Doug McMillon, and the EOC (Emergency Operating Center) took place during the mental health crisis of their Employees before COVID-19? Who created the mental madness for the overworked, exhausted, abused and punished employees? Walmart along with CEO Doug McMillon got some hell-a-fie PR. The real truth has revealed itself. Death brings out the Best or the Beast. Death doesn’t care if you are the 1% or have no cents. There are no pockets in a shroud. Death does not discriminate. Death waits in line to participate. Ari Melber of MSNBC understands All Eyes on You Walmart. RIP Machiavelli.

Walmart decided to inflict pain, humiliation, hurt, shame, and wage suppression by weaponizing the evaluations. Customer Service Managers (CSMs) were devastated. Coach, Sandy Harrison played a big part in evaluating the front end. Sandy arrived from another store around September 2019. Harrison has been at store 2857 for a short period of time. The CSMs felt Coach Sandy had not been at Walmart long enough to evaluate the supervisors. I totally agree. I got an F also. Now you know what happens when you do not buy into Walmart draconian system. You can use the open door for grievances. Employee’s lives are on the line. The new method of open-door policy should extend to News Media, Advocates, and attorneys. A directory of resources is coming to a theater near you.

Sandy Harrison never worked one day overnight. My shift is 10:00 pm-7:00 am. I have no coaching on my record. The other associates say they have no coachings. I don’t remember having any conversation with Sandy Harrison about my job performance. We talk. Sandy Harrison works morning and mid shifts. How can you evaluate a person without working their shift or knowing how the overnight shift is operated? Whew! There are managers who spirits are broken by demotion from Walmart. There are managers who have an axe to grind. There are managers who are very new to the company.  Who do you have to evaluate the associates objectively? I thought it was horrible that Assistant Manager Sam was the bearer of bad news. Facial recognition speaks volumes. Sam had the butterfly over his mouth. I sat across from Sam feeling like Clarice. There sat Anthony Hopkins, Hannibal Lector eating my brains.

I went on my Star Trek journey. I went where no associates have gone before. I landed in the movie Wrong Turn. I talked to Clive Owen from the movie Derailed. I had lunch with Matt Damon and Don Cheadle. Don looked at me and said you are the star of the movie Crash. Bottom line, If Store Manager, Philip Shelton got and F you best believe the majority of the store associates would get an F also. Would it get reversed by the Walmart Ethics committee? CSM Rodney is the expert in this conversation. He needs to be heard by Regional Manager Steve and HR Dana. Hunger Games Begin. What! Regional Manager Steve is leaving too. Hmmm! CSM Rodney make sure you get hold of Dana or Steve before Walmart take out yet another market team.

Apple Tv (Tim Donald Cook, Chief Executive Officer of Apple, and his crew) thank you. Netflix (Wilmot Reed Hastings, Co-founder, and CEO and his crew) thank you. My mind is in maximum overdrive processing movies totally different. CEO Doug McMillon, the advisor to the man with no name became the star of Sleeping With The Enemy. Death had no name. My lens process the man without a name as Meet Joe Black. Joe Black’s late start on COVID-19 cost many lives in this country. Was this an act of intentional behavior against New York, California, Louisiana, Chicago, Florida, and any area that is low income, no income, and race-related. Basic Instant leads me down the path to Cape Fear. Movie watching has placed me back in my gasoline drawers. Will Walmart follow this path?. Will The Empire Strike Back?

You can Google the article, Where It’s Going: Walmarts $25 Million COVID-19 Commitment. Walmart breaks down the distribution of funds I’m cool with that. Walmart needs to COMMIT to the Employees across the nation who are putting their life on the line keeping their stores operational. Giving their employees the necessary tools to stay SAFE and ALIVE. The employees need to know the company they work in. Jeopardizing any life is dangerous. On any given day the associates, customers, and the world need to know the Facts. Smiling Faces is Walmarts symbol and national anthem. Beware of the pat on the back. Walmart employees are afraid and under attack. COVID-19_Walmart.

Walmart needs to Rethink its operations. Close their stores especially at 2857 in Kansas City Mo. Focus on the weakest part of the store which always has been the grocery side due to lack of help. Walmart CEO Says You Should Stop Stockpiling Food And Supplies in Saturday paper. You can Google this article too. Walmart needs to lose the attitude of Business As Usual and put their associates first like Costco, Hyvees, Aldi, Price Chopper.

The award goes to Costco for the video on keeping their customers and associates safe during COVID-19 Pandemic. Costco did not take back returns and Walmart did. Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon need to takes lessons. We lost several associates to Costco. Why? Costco has a reputation for caring and treating their associates with dignity and respect. Formal Walmart employees stated Costco paid more and their benefits were way better. Word Up! What About Us! Check out Pink video. Pink and her son were affected by COVID-!9. Read the article on April 9, 2020. Pink Speaks Candidly about Getting COVID-19 With Her son on “Ellen.” Thank You, Pink for becoming one of the many Oscar Schindlers of Schindler’s List. Where is Walmart videoes/movie?  Change the game it is Traning Day. Good movie to watch.

Train the frontline of (cashiers, CSMS) to do grocery picks. Use the conveyor belts on the registers to help push the grocery orders through at a faster rate. Keep this format to boost online groceries (OGP) and stock the grocery side until this Pandemic is lifted. Kill the 6:00 am bum rush in the store. The great stampede has struck fear in the hearts of all the employees at Walmart store 2857 Boardwalk Square. It would keep the CSM safe from the money in the filthy cash office with no ventilation. CSMs and other members of management would have little to no contact with customers because of closing registers, self-checkouts, and stores.

Stores in the Kansas City area shut down at midnight before COVID-19. The store north of the river on Boardwalk Square was overwhelmed with customers. We could not provide the appropriate customer service before COVID-19. The store was not properly staffed. The schedules cut hours at the front end. Our shelves were not properly stocked. Our store has several violations. The store was contaminated before COVID-19. Regional and district managers were constantly in the store. The Store Manager, Phillip Shelton, and other members of management were warned to get the store in compliance. Walmart’s system of One Best Way is Not the Best Way. My Way or the Highway cannot be the attitude or position taken with COVID-19_Walmart. Walmart made policy changes. Not Willingly!

Thank you, Steve (Regional) and Dana(HR), for hearing me out. I give credit where credit is due. I have struggled with the Home Office throughout the years in this store. I have stated Home Office is not my friend nor my Homie due to a lack of trust. Kent Gurkie, District Manager, Mike Gray (RIP), District Manager along with his sidekick Connie Freeman were good people. They engaged the associates and made changes in the store. Hear me out once again. Walmart took out a whole market team in one swoop. Good People! The Predator has Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny Glover Pissed. It’s hard to gain trust watching Walmart takedown decent people. Every time Steve (Regional) and Dana(HR) entered the store they have always treated me with respect.

Steve (Regional) and Dana(HR), I was very disappointed with the way the front end and other employees throughout the store have been treated. It was hard to catch Store Manager Philip Shelton. I didn’t know if he had gone on vacation, in meetings, or doing his daily store walks with other members of management. I didn’t know his hours. Other store manager’s hours were much early than Philip Shelton. I notice something.

Today, I want the associates and other members of management to look at the store receipt. Do you see the entire name of the store manager? If it is there he just placed it there. One of my neighbors was kind enough to pick some milk up from the store. As of 4/17/2020, Philip Shelton’s name is not on the receipt from my purchase. I did not want to leave the store without asking Philip Shelton why did he remove his last name from the store receipt. As of 4/20/2020, Philip Shelton’s name is not on the receipt. Since Philip Shelton is leaving I guess there is no reason for his name to be on the receipt.

I went out sick on 3/24/2020. Philip Shelton’s name has been missing for quite a while. Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego? Joey Richie told me many years ago he was proud to have his name on the receipt. Joey stated, whatever happens, Joey Richy could hold his own and take responsibility and be held accountable. During that time Joey Richie was the right person and the right hire for this store. Joey Richie was proud of the associates and his achievements at store 2857. Store Manager Joey Richie did an excellent job. When Joey Richie and Co-Manager Brent got wind of a visit from Regional they would bring a set of clothes and spend the night at Walmart to be prepared for their visit in the morning. Philip Shelton will be exiting Walmart store at 2857 and will continue his journey at another store in Texas. Have a safe journey, Philip Shelton. Just a reminder, John Kennedy, Senator of Louisianna is not related to Ted Kennedy (RIP),senator of Massachusetts. Blake Shelton is not related to Philip Shelton. Love to hear Joe hammer John Kennedy on how fake he is. It brings a smile to Mika’s face.

Not one of the managers listed below ever removed their name: Martha Blood, Joey Richie, Jerry Reed, Scott Snow, Michael Hunter, Randall Addison, Mark Hoyt, and George whose name I can’t recall right now. I will come back to his name. Did you notice there was only one woman store manager mentioned? Walmart is notorious for gender, pay, and promotion. Check out Walmart Stores, Inc. v Dukes-Supreme Court. 564 U.S. 338 (2011). There were managers who would correct the customers if they didn’t say their full name. I remember a store manager informing a customer not to call him by his first name. They made it clear no first-name basis. Whew! Notice we didn’t have but one woman name on the list. Got me singing, It’s A Man’s World. Godfather of Soul, James Brown.

This was a big scene from the movie Mission Impossibles, Fallout. I was done. All I could think about was the former Store Managers introduce themselves to the customers they would say their full name. Marvin Gaye walked in the door. He begins to sing What’s Going On. What did Philip Shelton have to hide? I didn’t want to leave the associates and other members of management in the hands of a Store Manager who didn’t take responsibility for the store or doesn’t care. Don’t you think the customers deserve the right to know his name? One of Walmart’s famous principle is Lead by Example. COVID-19 is running its campaign. Death will make an example out of the lives of Walmart employees. Death will take the lead if Walmart continues to do business as usual. Hot-line time! Submit a tip to Bloomberg News, VLAD or VOX.

Vice President Joe Biden, Deleware: Senator Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts: Senator Bernie Sanders, Vermont: Senator Cory Booker, New Jersey: Senator Kamala Harris, California: Senator Stacy Abrams, of Georgia, do really think Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon care? Walmart made a killing on the toilet paper, sanitizer, paper towels, wipes, and disinfectants.

All the associates receive is $300. PR That! Check his salary out. This is not the movie Hidden Figures. Walmart loves promoting men over women, paying women less. Women can be more than cashiers, maintenance personnel, door greeters, department managers, coaches, assistant managers. Come on now. CEO Doug McMillon started out as a cart pusher at Walmart. He should be called Doug Mc-MILLIONS. I wonder what Michael Bloomberg calls CEO Doug McMillon?

The 1% is far from perfect and will not escape to Gattaca. In the movie, Gattaca, people had to be genetically perfect to go into space. Ethen Hawke, Uma Thurman, Jude Law reassures me, CEO Doug McMillon will not go to outer space. CEO of Walmart missed critical opportunities. He failed to fix his country. Judd’s teleconference with Ru Paul ended with Ru Paul telling CEO Doug McMillon, “Don’t F*ck It Up.” Too late! Matt Damon, who starred in the movie Elysium, said Walmart CEO McMillon shall remain on earth with the poor and 65 +. Jodie Foster, first lady president in outer space, stated Walmart Inc. nor CEO McMillon won’t be allowed to breathe Elysium’s air. Although- McMillon has money, Doug will always be viewed as a second class citizen and cart pusher. Michael Bloomberg views CEO Doug McMillon as a man with no Spaceballs. This is not West World but this is CEO Doug McMillon’s salary.

Don’t forget to visit www1.salary.com to view CEO Doug McMillon’s salary from 2009-2019. You can check out his crew salary too. Walmart associates only received $300 one time. Part-time received $150 as a Thank You for working through COVID-19. You can thank the associates by supplying them with the necessary tools to save their lives. I’m quite sure the employees would be so happy with the $569,953 total other in Mc-MIllion’s package.

Where are the Walmart Employees guard shields for their registers, masks, and hand sanitizers? Okay! Guarde shields are finally up. These associates need the appropriate cleaners and approved cleaners to wipe down their areas. Concentrate on the employee’s lives instead of cleaning the d**n floor. Maintenance is so understaffed. The machines are always broken down. The machine in the cash office is a death trap, without any ventilation and no one ever has done any maintenance to its floors. What good was painting the door to the cash office? Get some ventilation in there are pull the door off. Man!

The lives of all Walmart employees are at risk. I’m sitting here reading about the 2 Walmart workers who worked at the same store passed away from COVID-19 in Evergreen Park in Chicago. How long has Walmart and every person in retail industries, banks, etc have known about COVID-19? Many of the Associates at store 2857 Boardwalk Square in Kansas City Mo. were told that big/massive changes would be taking place in April. Strange, that information was discussed around the store in mid or late December.

Walmart could not plan for success to get ahead of the virus. Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon did not serve our customers and drive customer experience. Why? Our store was dirty and had many customers complaints along with store violations before COVID-19 struck. A Now Hiring sign resides at the front entrance. Help was needed over on the grocery side. The grocery was never properly stocked for lack of associates. Walmart has the money to contract for a professional cleaning and floor crew. Old associates will be overworked and new associates will not stay. The new associates did not sign up to be pulled in a thousand different directions.

Work felt like punishment. Associates started calling in. They wanted to transfer out of the store. Transfers were blocked by Phillip Shelton, the store manager. This was before COVID-19. Now the associates in great fear of their lives want out.”Lives Do Matter”. Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon PR staff need to email Walmart INC. and let them know they are no longer in charge. Death has taken the reigns. Death has come off its intermittent leave of absence. There will be no Time Adjustments. Walmart was never in charge. The BODY COUNT will rise due to Income Tax Checks and Stimulus checks. Customers overcrowding the store and not keeping their distance once again will endanger the lives of the Employees. SHUT THE STORE DOWN!

Once again March appears to be the month for destruction and disruption. Walmart is behind the times of Netflix. Evaluations were weaponized to take the associates down to a new low. Wage suppression, pay discrimination has knocked on the door of Store 2857 at Boardwalk Square. Along comes age discrimination, race discrimination, entering through the side entrance. The bullying and harassment pimped a new style in the form of shaming members of management and associates to risk their lives for a company that has never given a d**n about the physical health or mental health of the associates. What did Netflix do with their evals?

Shaming Process:

1.) Shaming members of management and associates to come to work when they are sick. Now that COVID-19 has struck Walmart, Walmart is trying to change its tune. Before COVID-19 Walmart did not operate this way. Behind the scenes, Walmart is still shaming members for not coming to work. Visit abetterbalance.org. Walmart got checked on their workers right on the attendance policy.

2.) Shaming associates to work overtime and in return stripping the time they have put in. Overtime doesn’t pay off. This was before COVID-19.

3.) Shaming members of management of a poor job of how the store looks. There is a Now Hiring sign on the door. Where is the Beef? Where are the employees?

Associates who chose to stay and work for Walmart for years or now older. The opportunity to retire will not happen. Forced out of your job comes next. Now you can lose your life. I have always told many of the associates if it’s not life-threatening don’t fear. Death is not an open-door policy. Death is not negotiable. Death forces you out of life. Walmart Corporation and Ceo Doug McMillon have taken their employees down to the lowest point of their life. Death Takes A Holiday will not happen at Walmart.

Walmarts greatest achievement is destroying the mental health of the associates so there is no oxygen in the room to hear their voices. Associates were never given the 5Ps. 1.) Praise employees regularly. 2.) Prioritizes employee’s health and wellness. 3.) Put yourself in the employee’s shoes (empathy). 4.) Pay employees what they are worth. Do Not Have them pay with their lives. 5.) Provide growth and development. No love is given.

What is truly sad is most employees are told or feel forced to sign an evaluation they disagree with. Associates feel compelled to sign. If the evaluation is not acknowledged you can not get a copy. Unbelievable! The majority of Supervisors, Department Managers, Support Managers Assistant Managers, Co-Managers, Store Managers have either been demoted or they step down from their positions. Why? When Walmart fails the employees fail.

Walmart is big on demoting, demeaning, and stomping on women’s self-esteem. Walmart pays women far less than they pay men. Walmart is at the top of its game on gender discrimination. I recall a conversation with Coach Sandy Harrison. I asked Coach what was her rank. Was her position like a Co-manager? Coach Sandy Harrison said, “I’m just nothing but a glorified assistant manager”. Just a what! What the hell! It was devastating to hear Sandy Harrison say those words. In my nineteen years at Walmart, I have heard those words over and over. I closed my eyes tight. My gasoline drawers turned me into a flame thrower. Whew! Writing about it piss me off! All women working for Walmart Inc. fighting for equality did not lose the battle only the lawsuit of Walmart v Dukes, 564 U.S. 388 (2011) the United States Supreme Court Case. Women will not buckle but continue to fight for their rights.

Throughout my years I witness Walmart’s cruelty, arrogance, selfishness, non-caring, narcissism, backstabbing, betrayal, not taking responsibility, shaming/blaming. Who does this sound like? Mirror image to Meet Joe Black. Who is the Advisor who missed opportunities for putting the country back together? I witness associates/members of management stressed to the max. Employees medicating themselves just to get through the night. The tears never stop flowing. I couldn’t help but notice associates who said they didn’t drink but started drinking. Liquor and cigarettes replaced eggs and pancakes. Associates turn themselves into a human chimney. I couldn’t believe the packs of cigarettes they purchased.

Walmart is terrible for women’s self-esteem. Walmart wants its employees to fall in line, do Walmarts bidding, and go along with Sh*t Hole Decisions that never work. Walmart, CEO Doug McMillon and the rest of the Hateful 8 shouldn’t tangle with Jango. I can hear Samuel Jackson now, “What The F*ck. Get your popcorn ready and check those movies out on Apple TV and Netflix. Stay in and watch movies, play games, do Tik-Tok, and stay safe.

Here’s that famous scene from The Exorcist. My head spun around and I started to piss on the carpet. We were short on maintenance and Mary was having a rough night. The wet mop machine to clean the floor was down as usual. We didn’t need two pissy associates on the floor. My face couldn’t turn any color with me being luscious dark chocolate. I started to throw my wig on the floor but I had just bought it. The floors were really dirty. Whew! Human hair is expensive.

Sandy Harrison did what she was told, instead of making the right decision. Walmart is very divisive.  You have to be very careful about doing other peoples’ bidding.  What happens when that person leaves? Who gets stuck with the blame? Walmart does not want any women associates to put their heads together with a class-action lawsuit. Discrimination in the areas of age, race, gender, sexism, wage suppression, retention, hiring, promotion, retaliation, harassment is Walmart’s way of putting women on the role back wall to clear women out. Sandy Harrison should have worked at least one month overnight. Harrison would realize Walmarts One Best Way does not work. Overnight is different from the day shift. The entire shift of overnight is understaffed. Walmart’s attendance policy failed under COVID-19. The attendance policy failed way before COVID-19.

EEOC and http://www.abetterbalance.org called Walmart out on attendance, pregnancy, workplace rights. Time magazine recognized A Better Balance as a leader in the fight for equality. Visit http://www.abetterbalance.org website and read the Families First Coronavirus Response Act which provides relief to working families passed by Congress. Learn about your employer.

There are 4 areas Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon Fail

1.) Know Your Customers and Drive Customers Experience.

2.) Know Your Business and Achieve Customer Results.

3.) InSpires Other

4.) Planning For Success

Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon failed in all four areas. That is why Walmart associates will never be paid what they are worth. Who is the true failure? Who loves never taking responsibility for anything? Who thinks they have total Authority? Who blames everyone else but themselves? Who is out every day talking about the changing trends in Walmarts and all they are doing for their employees. Who is the advisor to I have Complete Authority? Right! Walmart’s and CEO Doug McMillon leads by example. Same Players, Same Lies, Same Playbook, Same ideas of opening up the economy trending on a different day.

Never let anyone tell you your strength is a weakness. Never let anyone say you are weak. Strengthen the areas of your weakness. One day your weakness may become your greatest strength. Hold your own and be strong. Stand up for your beliefs. Remember you are not alone.

Implanted in my brain are the words spoken from Number 44’s mouth (formal President Barack Obama), “You Just Can’t Make This Up” As I leaned back into my chair I could hear his voice circulating around my ears saying “Know This”. I had to go back in because I knew it was something that I was missing. Everything that was subtle and invisible became crystal clear. Clocking in with Death every night heighten my senses. In the Color Purple Celie played by Whoopi Goldberg told Albert played by Danny Glover, one day you’re gonna do right by me. I hope and pray one day Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon do the same for all of the employees who are risking their lives for Walmart.

Thank You Google and Apple for tracking COVID-19 and saving lives. Here was my way of tracking Walmart. I hope I changed lives. Find out what rights you have. Start at abetterbalance.org. Work your way to Alliance For Justice. Ease on down the road with moveon.org. Visit the daily.dot.com and read 10 Reasons Walmart is the worst company in America (March 1, 2020).

Walmart plans to hire 50,000 more associates as of Friday, April 17th. Walmart’s total comes to a whopping 150,000 more part-time and temporary workers. Walmart is 6 weeks ahead of schedule. Wow! We have entered the movie Death Race. No matter how many associates are hired by Walmart COVID-19 will take the lead. Will Walmart be held accountable for 150,000 more lives? This world is not Walmart’s World.

Charleston Heston (1970) realized he was back on earth when he saw the Stature of Liberty broken on the shore. Everything had changed. The Apes had taken over (Planet Of The Apes). The monkey on our worlds back is COVID-19. The monkey made its presence in 1983 as HTLV-3 or HTLV-III now known as HIV.  We made it through. My friend with a yellow pen. One day it will all end. At this moment in time, it is a shame and a sin. Our lives will move FORWARD from the shelter in place we live in. Our nation will rebuild and start living to the fullest again. Never forget to MOVE FORWARD.  Whose LOGO was that? BRING IT!

You were absolutely right Number 44, you just can’t make this Sh*t Up. Dropping the PEN and I’M OUT.

Orange Is The New Temporary

Several deadly incidents caused by the Active Shooter landed Walmart Store, 2857 on the State of Emergency list. Signs posted on each door at Walmart read as followed. ( Attn: Shoppers, TEMPORARY Store Hours. The Store will be closed 1 am to 6 am daily until further notice. Thank you, sorry for your inconvenience?. What is wrong with this picture?

I sincerely hope Walmart really evaluated the whole picture. What is the whole picture? Walmart decision was based on the safety of the people and the associated first. The other part of the picture is KCI International Airport distance from Walmart is approximately 8 miles making it 12 minutes away. Do you you think someone on the board of Walmart would keep store 2857 open at night not giving a d**n about safety?

Did Home Office or Asset protection send the police to Walmart on Boardwalk Square? Whoever made the decision did it Temporarily. Until further notice, the police will remain at Walmart. Wait for a minute, the signs are no longer on the door. I guess Walmart has made its decision. Whatever decision Walmart made I hope they realize Death is not TEMPORARY but PERMANENT.

Let me explain something! Richard and Maurice McDonald hamburger does not taste like Five Guys. Ray Croc stepped in to put more Flavor Flave to the company in 1955. Ray Croc will tell you to this day it is all about location, location, location. This is what put the Golden Arches on the map. This is McDonald’s moneymaker shaker. I can hear Notorious B-I-G and the BRAT signing off with their signature holler Baby Baaaaaa-by. Salt and Pepper would stomp down on it with Ooo Baby Baby.

For the record, associates can no longer remain uninformed. Reading keeps the brain tight. It’s mandatory to know your employee rights. Under Martial Law, people’s rights are removed. Constant chaos every day leaves no room for productivity. Who created the chaos? Was this an act of senseless sensibility? The biggest threat to the associates and customers is Walmart. Money is the major priority of the behemoth company.

It all sounds so familiar. Just in case Walmart says they are in shock, they didn’t know, they never heard of it, remember these important questions.

!.) Who dismiss the First Responders?

2.) How much are the First Responders paid hourly?

3.) Can Walmart afford not to have the First Responders on sight?

4.) Did Walmart base their decision on the safety of the customers and associates?

5.) Did Walmart base their decision on money?

6.) Is it business as usual with Walmart?

7.) Who out there in real-world think store (2857) should be shut down early like the other store closings?

8.) Why is store 2857 Boardwalk Square still open passed midnight?

9.) Will Walmart bring the First Responders back full time not TEMPORARILY?

10.) Should Walmart and the CEO be held accountable for their poor judgment of saving lives?

11.) What is Walmart and the CEO plan? Do they have a Plan?

It all sounds so familiar. There are so many questions in my head. I do not have the support of First Responders nor Asset Protection from 10 pm-7 am. No, they do not care. Walmart can not form their lips to say they had no clue. It is all a LIE. How many stories have I written on Walmart’s behavior? How many years has it been? Money Matters, not the People are Associates. It just like cancer. Cancer did not start today. Cancer did not start yesterday. Hatred and racism are the Ride or Die, partners, of cancer. Never TEMPORARY!

Remix of You Will Not__Ain’t Happening!

Whew! It is a lot going on. I mean a Lot! A Lot! The music playing in my head is Marvin Gaye’s What”s Going On. The next song on the playlist is Brett Kavanaugh, Supreme Court Nominee, singing James Brown THE Big Pay Back. After that Poet and songwriter, Bobbi Womack released a song called I Can’t Understand It. The Russian Republicans will be asking that question to a man who does not read, have the ability to run the country, and probably just open the Gates of Hell on the 2 Hours Plus upon firing Rob Rosenstein or excepting his resignation. This is not a Constitutional Crisis but a D**n Bloodbath.

As the music begins to dissipate in my brain I thought I would go read a book to reset and Energize the Bunny. I wanted a cool smooth tap on the drum so the words could bring a new Funk and meaning to this poem. I was checking out Song Through The Wall, Akua Lezli Hope edited by Nikki Giovanni from the 100 Best (But I Cheated) African American Poems. Remix You Will Not__Ain’t Happening.   A facelift for this moment in time is now due.  So here’s my spin.

 

 

Don’t even go there and try to attempt to place the blame, shame and denigrate me.

Cory Booker said, “Bring It” to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Eleven men with Alt-Right Views should never ever judge.

Since the Time of Anita Hill, some of these same men have continued their bigotry and grudge.

Christine Blasey Ford revealed her deepest darkest secrets recognizing it is not her fault.

How many more women will be responsible, show Moral Courage, and say it was a criminal sexual assault.

Women and men should take a stand so they will not feel the burden of relentless sadness.

The winds have shifted, tides change course, we are left with mental madness.

You fight, stand your ground, don’t back down, this moment in TIME in 2018

ME TOO and TIMES UP MOVEMENT truly supports it Ain’t Happening.

 

You will not bully, harass, silence my voice or ring my bell.

You will not limit my choice, beat my spirit down or put me through hell.

You will not destroy my reputation or crush my dreams.

You will not change my heart and lower my self-esteem.

You will not shove me aside and make me wait.

You will not drive me to the point of corruption and hate.

You will not lie, disrespect, or violate my privacy.

You will not scar my life with your hypocrisy.

You will not treat me as an old coin that has been degraded

You will not touch me inappropriately, my body is not to be passed around or traded.

You will not push my life aside by the minute or the hour.

You will not, You will not, You will not ignore I have been empowered.

 

Dedicated to All the Women and Men across the nation who are stepping out, speaking out and validating their Moral Courage.

Healing starts today. Take the Time out of your life and write down what YOU WILL NOT.

 

Special Shout out to Ari Melber hearing your words (Ain’t Going Out Like That/Cypress Hill)

Motivation to finish this poem.  This one hits home.  Thank You Again.

 

Queen Or King Of Your Soul__Moral Courage

Lean Forward. Did you hear it? I listened but not a word uttered. That was the Power of the message. You never have to mention the name ever again. When was the last time you pass by a bank? What do you normally picture inside a vault? I wonder how much money a safe or a huge vault contain. I just learn the enormous sins of A Nazi Sympathizer has his devilment locked away.   A man who could not denounce White Supremacy. No Moral Courage ever existed as a trait/ characteristic.   He will never receive an Ethics Award.  I will give credit where credit is due. Everything that was once so abstract has been brought to light encased in concrete.  What a PICTURE THIS MOMENT. For the Flip Side Of The Chart who cannot Imagine or PICTURE THIS, it has all been laid out with the FACTS, TRUTH, and Smoky Robinson singing POINTED OUT.   In a world of Democracy, not Dictatorship or Zsar-Ship, our nation can identify the face of Intentional Behavior. Our nation and many nations know who ranks number 1 on the Billboard Charts of Mental Illness during their term. Yes, we got the opportunity to view the workings of an UnIndicted Co-Conspirator and the Supreme Court Judge nominee who has every INTENTION of fulfilling Make America White and a Slave Again.  Oh No! Not for just today but for a Lifetime.  No Love for their country only for self.  Who does that sound like? Hit it, Tina! What’s Love Got To Do With It.

You never have to mention the name of a man who wears the face of a LIER, and a Cheat. In every aspect of his life. Why would a Supreme Court Judge Nominee want to be connected to a man whose safe/vault could not be sealed with gorilla glue, cemented, anchored, welded and information still leaks out on a constant basis? Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhie can get out their flashcards and notes.  We the People know who don’t take notes.  Whenever you see the word Unprecedented Behavior, Compulsive, Idiot, Ignorant, Incompetent, Narcissistic, you will never need to utter the name.  PICTURE THIS and POINTED OUT!  Let’s not leave out Rex-N-Effects. His word was Imbecile.  Where is Tillison?  It is very inappropriate to use the word Mental Retarded, Mongoloid (remember that lawsuit), and Idiot Savant. Mr. No Name has been called an idiot on several occasions. Yes, he will never fall into the category of a Savant. Savant has extraordinary splinter skills. Splinter skills are commonly found in children with Autism.  Splinters Skills is having the ability to do specific tasks way above a child age development. There is a disconnect when it comes to examining splinter skills with life and social skills.  By now you realize the disconnect with Mr. No Name.  He has no Life and Social Social Skills. He has No Skills to run the United States of America.  Whew! What a History Lesson. Maybe we should send Rick Wilson book, Everything (this man) Touches Dies, to the Supreme Court Nominee. Reputation, dignity, patriotism, integrity,__Moral Courage means nothing when you are not Queen Or King Of Your Soul.

I was taught by my elders it is never good to transition out of life with poor memories of how you live your life.  I love using YOU when I’m writing. This is Personal. You were not the Queen or King Of Your Soul__Moral Courage.  Physical Courage is always applauded over Moral Courage.  Whatever you stood for in life kept you alive after death in the heart of the people.  Your Soul would Speak volumes of Power in Death and would unite Kingdoms.  Mika asks a question about Unity.  Aretha Franklin was described as having Dignity, R-E-S-P-E-C-T, Charitable, Student of the World, Eloquent, Intelligent, Loving Person and the list goes on.  John Mccain was described as Patriotic, with Integrity, Presidential, Brave, a loving father, apologetic when he was wrong. His list of positive behavior goes on for miles.  My elders taught the lesson of  Death of A Soul. You live your life in a negative manner caused by your own sins (Intentional Behaviors) you bury yourself in this MOMENT and TIME.  The people will want to forget. They will forget.  The roses or lilies will be placed across one’s chest.  You don’t get an asterisk. Totally omitted. Deleted from the mind and the heart. For Real Dead. I remember when I was very young and I went out and cut all the flowers off of every rose bush I came across. Arriving at my elder’s home I had all these flowers in my arms not realizing I was bleeding from the thorns. I was one pissed off kid. I was so tired of the kids picking on me calling me Nappy-head. So I thought I get my flowers and present them to all the kids that had been cruel. I wanted to forget all of these kids and never worry about developing a relationship or mentioning their name.  My elders explain that is EXACTLY why we are not granted certain powers. It would be a DL Hugely Moment That Will Hold Your A** and You Get Exactly What You Deserve.  How many people you know would be MIA? Sing it, Aretha! You Better THINK.

There are many people who walk this earth who are the Queens or Kings Of Their Souls. We are getting lessons from all over the world.  Just the other day we got a top-notch lesson from  President Obama, Serena Williams, Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey, Senator Kamala Harris of California, Senator Mazie Hirono of Hawaii,  Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, and Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont. Reaching across our nation extending a hand to the Queens and Kings Of Their Soul, Canada- Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Germany-Angela Merkel, France-Emmanuel Macron, and the relationships established 75 years ago and continued under the Obama Administration with 29 independent member countries in the NATO ALLIANCE. Yes, John Kerry and Andrea Mitchell Souls can be restored. Keeping an eye on the expansion of countries because it could weaken NATO by adding more countries or countries not as strong. Checking out article 5. Mr. No Name, Russia’s friend wants to test the waters. Who’s Zooming Who? We all know Aretha song it Best.

Today, on this very date September 11, 2001, seventeen years ago a terrorist attack was lead. Our nation will never forget the Queens and Kings of the Souls of people who lost their lives. The families who spoke out and shared intimate stories about their loved ones. To our nation  (United States of American) and to the NATO Alliance, the majority of the nation’s people DO NOT SHARE the views of the UnIndicted-Co Conspirator and Nazi Sympathizer. I know it is very hard for foreign countries to be the Queen and King of their Souls after the Lies, insult, and bad deals coming from a man who has no skills,  Mentally ill (extreme emotional disturbance) and suffers from a psychiatric disorder (behavioral). One day I hope these countries learn to believe and trust in our nation again. Our country does not need another International or National Incident.  I sincerely hope and pray each country can reach into their Soul and become Queen or King and speak to ones__Moral Courage.

Mind Transformation__Other Whens And Other Wheres

Mathew 7:12 (In Everything, Do unto others what you would have them do unto you). This is Mankind Golden Rule of Conduct. In order to understand the Golden Rule Of Conduct, there is a balance. Mind Transformation holds the largest sell out in any theater in this walk of life.  We role play, jump into another person skin, and we dance in their shoes.  Empathy comes out and takes a bow. Compassion and Support are standing in the wings as the crowd roars and claps.  The other players unite with Compassion demonstrating the Big Picture.  Two men approach the stage with flowers and a huge plaque. The crowd settles down. The faces begin to change and tears begin to fall. Bishop Michael Curry and Father, James Martin presence communicated the need for prayer for all children, young adults of immigrants that have been snatched away from their parents and their home.  A voice screams out.  What If? This is the question for eons. Here comes that mighty bolt of lightning striking the brain. Pure silence.  Hearts begin to bleed and the mind begins to travel to Other Whens (TIME) and Other Wheres (Places). This is called IMAGINATION.

From the Opposite End of the Spectrum, you have Neurological Syndromes that struggle with Not Being able to understand the Code of Conduct, Not being able to put themselves in other people shoes or their skin. These Neurological Syndromes do not roleplay and can’t travel to Other Whens and Other Wheres. The Sense of Time and Place is a huge deficiency. Some of these Neurological Syndrome do not imagine nor have creative abilities. In the Psychological world, this is called ANOSOGNOSIA.

In 2012 the keyword was FORWARD.  For 2018 we understand that the administration we are dealing with has not been able to adapt, change, rise to the occasion, progress. advance or Transform. In the Final Stage of Transformation are Death and Decomposition (Decay). Our Nation can no longer stand by and let the Administration of Death and Decay destroy the Minds of Transformation__ Other Whens and Other Wheres.  Moving Foward in 2018 keyword is Transformation.

Every living being takes on some form of transformation. Even if there is partial transformation. Let’s say if the adult fly didn’t make the complete transformation. You start out with the fertilized egg. Then you have the larva. Which we know is a maggot. What! The opportunity failed and it did not liquify inside the pupa so it did not transform into a complete adult fly.  You are stuck with the maggot’s destruction. Maybe not for too much longer.   Hold that thought.

Erase Away The Day

I watched the Golden Globe Awards on the carpet, not on the linoleum floor.  I could feel the pressure around my jaws as my face begin to tighten. All I could think about was my daughters and my granddaughters. Give them the opportunity to blossom into women and don’t let their self-esteem be stripped by “Shush.”  Lord don’t let a younger generation of women travel my road of Seen and Not Heard.  Women in my day were inappropriately touched by their teachers, fathers, relatives, so-called friends and ministers to be later told they would go to hell.  Who would believe them?  The greatest disappointment and the biggest Shush is when you tell your mother, guardian, or a person who you thought was a trusted friend.  The biggest hurt comes when they don’t believe you. It can shut your voice down for many years.  I pray to God Time will be Up when they embark on their journey in their lives.  Don’t get Shushed. Continue to be Heard. Continue to be Seen.

There was a voice from the late 60’s that floated through my head. As I closed my eyes I could hear Angela Davis speak about men’s power. Angela’s voice echoed, men will not cow down. Through the lens of men’s eyes, they will find a way to dismantle and manipulate any purpose or program that will put women in a position of power.  It will be done in your home, job force and government agencies (White House). Men objectify women. They feel women are their accessories (fur coat, leather glove, diamond ring, trophy wife). The abstract now becomes concrete.  Men will rise up and do everything to make women pay by lowering women into the bargain basement. It’s strange how men can drop women off into the bargain basement but don’t want to select their wives, girlfriends, or fiancée from the bargain basement. Men of power do not want their daughters dropped off at the Going Going Gone Shop in the bargain basement. Look what men do with their power.  Thinking with Penus Power has failed every time.

I found it really hard to write.  I felt my voice getting smothered and my fingers going numb. Nine months have rolled by. Hope begin to knock on my door and at my fingertips. The greatest line from the movie Scarface popped into my head. “Say Hello To My Little Friend.” The Hollywood Shoot Out of Sexual Harassment had revealed the many Scarred Faces in Hollywood.  It opens the door for the Recognizable and Unrecognizable to come forward and tell their story. Every Scarred Face and Scarred Heart across the nation would grieve, wear black, and share the global runway.  Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey took the lead for pieces of the puzzle on sexual misconduct.  It was pointed out there are many more pieces of the puzzle to come.  Gorilla glue is making the case for sexual harassment.   Alabama rolled out the red carpet before the Global Awards and made it quite clear there will be no sexual predators in the United States Senate.  They too should get an award for letting the world know having a sexual predator for a senator is definitely not the norm.

There has been so much division, hatred, and the most unremarkable behavior witness in my lifetime. I looked and searched for any channel to help Erase Away The Day. I watched a lot of Jimmy Fallon because he wasn’t riding the political tidal wave.  I was so amazed how the media continue to ride their horse after being so heavily attacked.  I needed time to regroup. I had so much to reflect on. The numbness is beginning to slowly wear off at my fingertips. I recall Tweeting after the Alabama election.  After viewing the Golden Globe Awards my heartfelt much lighter. My brain didn’t look like Pin Head.  My mind felt at ease.

All that Intentional Behavior brought to the forefront by people who knew better.  These men had a choice to make the right decision and didn’t. Yes Say Hello To My Little Friends Matt Lauer, Charley Rose, Bill O’Reilly, Blake Farenthold, Roger Ailes, Russell Simons, Mario Batali, and there are so many more. I  think Clarence Thomas name can fit inside the many more.  These are the infamous master of educators to the hidden residual rule of Sexual Harassment.   Think all the people who were diagnosed with a neurological syndrome and just didn’t have a clue about sexual harassment. The abstract is now concrete.  Well, you got infamous recognizable face wear now. Thanks to Me Too Movement, Times Up Movement, and the many women’s movement growing at light speed who were Seen and Heard. Most of all Thank You for telling your story and not letting Sexual Harassment Erase Away The Day and Erase Away Your Life.

 

2016 NLD___Reverse Mode

You click on and you saw What? I saw the poem Through It All. I went back to the story, The Five Days Before Christmas and at the very bottom, it said 2016 NLD__Reverse Mode Coming Soon. What did you do after that? I pulled out my iPhone and Googled NLD Recognition.  When the site rolled up I saw NLD Recognition and We Need To Rethink the Way We Think. Underneath the titles, it had Snitch This. So I went to Yahoo and it said May 2011 <<NLD Recognition>> and April 2011 <<NLD Recognition>>. Did you find what you were looking for?  First, let me say this. Okay!  You update all the time so Yahoo and Bing need to place 2016 or start putting your most recent titles out there. I learned a lot from the story The Five Days Before Christmas.  That story was written in January 2016.  Girlfriend, talking about a BOOTY-SCORCHER!  You are going to have Employment Attorneys lined up everywhere. I rather sit in front of a Senate Investigating Committee or speak out to the Supreme Court on how Corporations Violate the rights of their employees.  Honestly! I don’t think you are doing too bad pointing out INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS vs UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS. Throughout this blog, you have made some hella-fide comparison and contrast to the Opposite End Of The Spectrum (the so-called normal folks) to the Flip Side Of The Chart (folks with neurological or behavioral diagnoses). Boo Boo, you covered some ground.

What I love about this blog you INCLUDED the government, corporations, media, sports world, entertainment world, LGBT community.  You spotlighted, women rights, Black Lives Matter, gun violence, and children/adults with disabilities.  Hold up, partner. Hold Up!  Whatever word you would like to use, society stigmatizes, condemn, and reach down into hell’s fire pit to label people disabled. This is exactly why so many people fail to reach out because of the Shame, Humiliation, and Guilt.  Be it medical or psychological, Intervention is mandatory and the path to discovery.  Intervention is the path to health and recovery. Oh! Did I trigger your behavior? Are you Having a PURPLE RAIN MOMENT?  No! I’m having a Let’s, Go Crazy Moment.  Help me LAWD! Just a friendly reminder to society for those individuals who are labeled as disabled can be viewed through another lens. These are the people with extraordinary minds, unique abilities, and multi-level learning styles.  I said it once and I will repeat it a thousand times.  All-righty Girlfriend! Did I touch off a nerve? No! You Pissed Me Off. More neurons were involved. Big Difference!.

Thank you for bringing up Prince’s song. He was Mr. Edwardian Architect.  He was the creator of kicking Traditional to the curb. Prince Body Language was definitely a Sign of the Times.   Prince personality was one of a Good-Hearted King.  He owns the title better known as your Royal Purpleness. He mastered the art of caring. His sharing was prolific.  Van Jones has made it clear that it should be POINTED OUT Prince was not only the man out in front of his music but an Iconic Philanthropist who held many keys and open many doors.   Prince style was built from boulders of confidence. Brick by brick and stone by stone he endured hurt and pain. Prince rose to the occasion of becoming better and not bitter.  He was the Pied Piper of Diversity. The colors Prince bathe his life it was the representation of inclusion.  Even Prince the Genius was excluded because of his unique dress did not impress nor did it fit in with the average rocker. Clothing is on the top 100 Bill Board of Non-Verbal Communication. Clothing speaks when words aren’t present.  It was his flair, the ability to change in style and in his music.

Humanity was served on Prince’s versatile guitars, pianos, and the multiple instruments which he charmed our hearts and mesmerized our minds. After all, he served the people.  Was he viewed through the lens of being weird and strange?   Absolutely?  Prince represented the Purple EMOJI of Self Confidence wrapped in a cloud of INDIVIDUALITY.  Different is OKAY. The Royal Purpleness in all his shyness roared letting nothing stand in his way of building his dream. In return, he helps many people build their dreams. In the face of disaster, Prince suited up and rescued the needy from their nightmares.   Fabrics of purple silk ripple in the high winds now flying at half-mast.  The lesson Prince bestowed upon me was Wear You, Be For Real With You,  Accept You, You are You, Be ever so Merciful To You and Others.

This brings me to the question again. Did you find the story 2016 NLD__Reverse Mode?  No, I  didn’t. The story is taking place right here right now. How is that possible?  It’s happening all around us on a daily basis.  We see it all the time yet we ignore or take it for granted.   People who are put under the microscope, viewed differently, condemned, punished, and isolated for being born with neurological disorders and Unintentional Behaviors do not choose to fail.  NLD Syndrome is an excellent example of neurological disorders whereabout people who are diagnosed with this particular disorder aren’t Emotionally disturbed or behavioral problems. Let’s get it, straight people. When you see the word neurological connect the dots to the nervous system. Before I go any further NLD (Nonverbal Learning Disability) encompass three areas: Social,  Motoric, and Visual-Spatial.

Nonverbal Learning Disability (NLD) is a developmental disability in which the individual demonstrates a mature vocabulary, rote memory skills, and an excellent reading ability,  Children/adults have a difficult time interacting with others, transitioning to new settings, working with new people, trouble with writing/fine motor coordination.

1.) motor impairment-causing difficulty in tasks that requires dexterity, manipulating small objects, coordinated handling tasks, such as writing, typing, and buttoning buttons

2.) attentional deficits-causing difficulty in coping with over-stimulating or distracting environments and requiring the person to have limited distractions and assistance in focusing oneself.

3.) difficulties in performing multiple tasks simultaneously causing in the individual to only need to do one thing at a time and limit the amount of information he/she can take in at the same time (he/she cannot follow multiple commands given at once).

4.) difficulty organizing material on their own-requiring the person to receive assistance in writing outlines, determining how to sequence/order, and prioritizing, and planning, and transitioning from one idea aspect of a project to another.

5.) visual-perceptual/visual-spatial deficits-difficulty reading maps, differentiating left and right, drawing complex figures, and understanding higher levels of arithmetic (such as geometry).

6.) social miscueing-causing the individual to have difficulty interpreting body language and facial expressions, knowing when the person is too close or too far away from someone with whom he/she is conversing, and understanding pragmatics.

7.) difficulty thinking creatively or abstractly causing the individual to think in “black or white” instead of considering the gray area and to have difficulties being flexible instead of rigid in their ideas.

These character traits with the proper support of family, friends, and other trusted relationships will help the individual EXCEED EXPECTATION. People with Neurological Unintentional Behavior do not wish to fail. Go back and review The Truth About NLD (Nonverbal Learning Disability) And Who It Can Resemble, Who In The World Is NLD?, We Need An Interpreter, Refresher Course NLD and there is so much more. The core problem of NLD Syndrome is putting the pieces of the puzzle together and getting the whole picture. If the whole picture does not come together the BOTTOM LINE will be quite sufficient. The following 7 character traits will be flipped for the Reverse Mode. Let’s see if you get the Whole Picture or the Bottom Line.

 

Left Brain/Right Brain___Whatever!

Hmmm! I guess we are not rocking the emotions today. Are you just not feeling it? I would love to feel it but my Right brain has some damages.  Whatever! My body has a lot of damages.  You don’t understand. Break it down to me.  When the Right Brain is damaged I lack the ability to decipher emotional information. I’m not ignoring the body language, facial expression, gesture, or the tone in people’s voices. I just can’t interpret nonverbal communication. So the key to your ignition doesn’t ignite your engine and you are left with the remix of cold cognition.  Sounds like R. Kelly Trapped In The Closet to me. Who is R. Kelly?  A soulful songwriter and producer whose ignition had a lot of issues. He steps away from the spotlights into his closet so his behavior would go into remission.

Basically, it just hard for you to put yourself in others people’s NIKES and you could not afford AIR JORDANS.  The price should not be so high that people assume you know how to behave and you really don’t.  The key to unlocking the door is to TEACH. Oooh! I have a great mentor out there who taught me the bottom line is what you need to know.  One cannot go from zero to one hundred. There are small steps we must take to reach our goal.  One day you will reach one hundred.  I can see why a person behavior would go off the chain when you are singing to the tune of Alicia Keys song, NO ONE.  I struggle big time socially.  I struggle big time medically.  So, Whatever! You are no different from me. There are many things in my life that need improvement. Every person on this planet needs to improve something in their life.

What did you say your name is?  I didn’t but people call me NLD Syndrome. I’m talking about the name on your birth certificate. Oh! My for real name is Constance. Well, for real Constance if I had to put my name down for every infected body part or missing part there would be no room for my parent’s name, date of birth, time, and the stamp of approval that the birth certificate is legitimate. See that long sentence I just wrote. Yeah! It is called a run on sentence.  I don’t need an English lesson. Constance, the point is my name would look just like that sentence on the birth certificate. That is what I’m trying to tell you.  I don’t get the whole picture. So, Whatever! If my body was a puzzle, BABY, there are pieces missing but I still can function. Another part of my body will pick up the tab.  In the medical community, a doctor will explain that you are born with 2 lungs. If one lung goes the other one is set up to carry on. This is the BIGGEST mistake the psychiatric community makes. Some other plan of action can be put into place.   The tab can be picked up to keep people with mental illness from feeling hopeless, a shame, and humiliated. We want you to seek help. People view mental illness as prolonged. A physical illness will take the body out quicker.

You are NOT terminally ill if you have been diagnosed with a mental illness.  How does the Left Brain pick up the tab?  I have so much verbiage.  I’m talking all over the place. Wow! You become the VOICE.  Have you ever watch that show? There is a lot of body language and begging on that show. Adam Levine stretches across his desk as if he is the most desperate artist begging to win the next season over Blake Shelton.  Pharrell with that baby-face smile leaning forward poking out his neck signaling,  “Come Home.”  Christine Aguilera using her hand movements to rope people in to be on her team.  Blake Shelton watching those cowboy boots, beating on his desk, and giving a friendly reminder to the new artist he has won three times.

My writing can go on for eons without me getting to the point. My friend’s last story was like that but she had a lot of points to make. 🙂 I starting reading early and my teacher thought I was gifted. When I was promoted to the next grade it took me too long to write and my hands got sore. It looks like I was coloring instead of writing.  I couldn’t keep up because I was so unorganized. I got into trouble so many times when the teacher would say,  “can you just imagine.” It would piss me off and my behavior begins to boil over like rice.  Oh God, when the teacher starts repeating lessons my head would spin around.  At that moment I felt as though I needed a priest to keep me from peeing on the carpet. I got this. I have the HERE-SAY PROGRAM. I’m auditory-verbal  At the end of the school day my brain felt like it had heard it all and I had said TOO much. Math became complex because it was so abstract. I would use all these big words in my writing but the paper said nothing.

I have a lot of memory but it is hard for me to take my old thoughts and transfer what I had learned to a new situation. I have come a long way and I have gotten much better. Good for you Constance. I want to make friends and develop relationships. After reading my friend’s story I realized the corporate community are afraid people will band together, make policy changes, defend their human/civil rights. If she struggled with her job and nothing was put in place for her to do an effective job, I will have a much tougher path to follow.  True Dat! When my mother found out the final word on my diagnoses she was relieved but she cried for days. My mother came across a chart. Listed on the chart was Syndromes With Social Incompetencies. It listed Williams Syndrome (WS), Autism, High Function Autism (HFA) Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD), Hyperlexia, Asperger’s Syndrome (AS), and Nonverbal Learning Disabilities (NLD). On the left-hand side of the chart, it has Speech, IQ, Motor, and Behavior.

Nonverbal Learning Disabilities (NLD) has early speech and vocabulary development. Pragmatic and prosody is poor. One may not be tactful when knowing when to end a conversation or how fast they are talking. As the saying goes silence can be golden but if you don’t know when to stop talking a problem exist big time. Common sense and being realistic is the ruler of today. Hey! Good news, it can be taught.  IQ for Nonverbal Learning Disability is normal to superior. VIQ>PIQ means Verbal Intelligence is much greater than the actual Performance. Whatever! Donald Trump is leading in the polls and he’s a Billionaire. As a matter of fact, The DONALD has inspired me to write this story and the next story coming your way real soon. There are a lot of people who talk a GOOD GAME and still get paid. One of my favorite people was Darrell Issa. Issa reasoning, abstract or not was shot to hell.  He never found any criminal activity against former Attorney General Eric Holder.  I can’t really say Issa talked a GOOD GAME but he talked a lot, had no common sense, and was very unrealistic. He is the richest member of Congress. Dang!  Consultants are the new VIQ>PIQ and any person that fall into this category.  Motor skills for NLD dexterity is a problem. The skill to paint, eat with a chopstick or a fork takes eye-hand coordination. So, Jack be nimble Jack be quick is hard for Jack to comprehend.  Jack can learn and start to mend. Writing, typing cutting with scissors and buttoning clothes can be a pain in the a**.  People diagnosed with NLD  have a tendency to sit on the floor to eat to help maintain their balance.  As far as NLD Behavior goes people who are diagnosed with this syndrome lack skills in receptive and expressive language hindering their verbal communication skills.

The biggest problem I have is when I become angry no one wants to help me or give me strategies and coping skills. They want to shove a bunch of pills down my throat. So they bring out Austin Powers and tell me to, “Oh Behave Baby!”  I have had the police called on me. People want to lock me away. I have been kicked out of those so-called self-righteous NLD groups.  They just want to talk about NLD Syndrome.  I live in the real world, not a thread.  What I say can get me killed outside that thread. You don’t have to say anything and can get killed. I am at a greater risk if NO ONE understands that my behavior is UNINTENTIONAL.  I strongly feel the psychiatric community should address race, politics, cultural diversity.   NLD is not the biggest problem I have. There have been several Black women and Black males shot down by the police. You haven’t forgotten Sandy Hook?   The school located in Sandy Hook was not for children with extraordinary minds, unique abilities, and multi-level learning styles.  Our society labels children/adults mentally disabled.

You have 16 contenders running for 2016.  These contenders have made several social blunders, gaffes, faux pas, and slip-ups INTENTIONALLY.   You better know who is MENTALLY CHALLENGED.  If the psychiatric community can’t address this conversation in their group maybe they need to be turned over to the Citizen Commission On Human Right (CCHR). These are the watchdog investigating and exposing Psychiatric Human Rights Violation. BOW WOW WOW YIPPY YO YIPPY YEAH!  Turn the Dogcatcher loose.   While we’re at it let’s turn over the 16 contenders for next year Presidency to CCHR. It is Time for the NLD Community to visit http://www.cchr.org.  It took me years to be diagnosed with NLD Syndrome.  NLD Syndrome is not on my birth certificate.  You have people in the next election singing, “If I Only Had A Brain.”   They should be singing, “I Sure Got A Lot Of Nerves.”  Has anyone stopped you and asked if you used your Left Brain/Right Brain__Whatever!
