Biden__ology

None of these contenders took the course. Well, it was reported 4 of the contenders took the course. Who did the reporting? B.C. said he had special knowledge. Yeah! I wrote the Koran.  Steven Spielberg and George Lucas are going to produce my biopic.  I won’t bother to come to the Academy Awards. Know This! I am going to win.  This brother is definitely Before Christ. Did they fail the course? Did they cut class? What happens to their mental processing? Who took the class?  It’s too embarrassing to say out loud. Psssssssk! No!  Get out of here! Zip It. This is too juicy. Come On! Let me drop a few hints.  The man behind the Iron Rag. What! Don’t you mean the man behind the Iron Mask? Just think about it for a second. I get it. He wanted to build a wall. Remember the Iron Curtain? What would you do when you want your hair to stay in place?   I go get my Doo-Rag.  There you go, Iron Rag. This Brother needs to wrap his head in Iron to keep his poison thoughts from seeping and creeping into the minds of We The People. This next person is on a Lou-Lou.  Maybe he watches too much Hulu.  Is that an owl with a hat sitting over there on a branch. Those are Bushes who got left on the ranch. No! This brother believed he was a famous character back in 1960 chilling with his friend Zeus. The Greek God Zeus. No! Dr. Zeus. You sound like Newt. This brother needs to lay off the Spam. What do you think about this, Pam? Hey! I don’t eat green eggs and ham. Has anyone talk to Sam. He’s bent on government shutdowns. D**n!  Have you ever talk to a person and your mouth started to get dry?  Why did I ever stop to say, Hi? Did you feel really thirsty?  The conversation went nowhere and this brother wasn’t worthy. He grabs my bottle of water and he took a drink. Ohooo! Pissed me off. Did he not think?  How can you trust this brother when he doesn’t pay his own bills.  He calls in for work and uses the EXCUSE he’s ill. How can you trust a brother who will never be able to negotiate our nation a deal? They all failed the course. For Real! For Real!

Tough course! Bring your heart, soul, and brain You’re right. I had to take this course more than twice. On the For Real Side, I probably will be enrolled in this course for the rest of my life. Biden_Ology!   The science of a man packing the Truth and Facts. Biden_ology! It is the science of a real human being with a tremendous amount of compassion.  This course demonstrated how the older man delivered a political spanking.  The younger opponent got spanked.   Hey, that statement sounds weird but I was just reflecting back on the 2012 debate.  My mind has fast forwarding to 2015 debates and the movie Friday.  The Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (censored version) You got knocked the F**k out.  Did Biden react like an old man?  Guess who will be on the cover of Eternal Magazine? We know it won’t be Jeb Bush.  Biden_ology tossed AGE right out the window in 2012.  Biden delivered right hooks, left hooks, uppercuts and constant jabs to the REAL old man who holds the gavel on a shrimp platter. This brother got doused with Joe’s secret sauce.  How ironic!  The Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, will be reminded every time his gavel swings Biden_ology will take him down. Biden laughed his way through the debate barely making any frowns.  Biden_Ology made Ryan look like the Actress who played Murphy Brown (Candice Bergen) real-life father’s puppet clown.   Science is a Branch of knowledge. Wait a minute!  We are talking about Biden_Ology.  We are talking about the whole Tree.  Look at all those contenders who don’t have a leaf to stand on and will not be included in the forest. Why? They don’t believe in science because they are climate deniers and liars. Let it be told by the opposite end of the spectrum this course was too brutal with too many interruptions.

Biden answers were to the point, not exaggerated, and very witty.  Bro can hang with Jay-Z, Maroon 5, and P Diddy.  Yes, 2016 election is going to Hurt Like A Mother F**ker. Maroon 5 sings it better than none other.  So be it if the title of Maroon 5 song comes out of Biden mouths used in a different context, Ye better know it! Biden will say what he means and means what he says. Gaffe! Get out your deck of cards and deal. Time to call a SPADE a SPADE.  Here comes the aromatic flavor of Unintentional Behavior. Look at all the crap the new Hammer of the House has said Intentionally. Look how the man behind the science handle the response of the so-called Gaffes. Play the 2012 debate tape again. Biden was cool, calm, collected and caring.  A true science that gives a D**n.  Biden_ology offers the following:

1.) The Fact of the matter ( Truth/credibility)

2.) Being on the same page

3.) So much laughter

4.) show me and stop talking

5.) direct eye contact

6.) simple answers

7.) concrete answers

8.) bottom line

9.) Specifics

10) a real Plan

11.) a rhythmic finger carried no threat to Martha, even the first tapping on the desk made you realize it was all about understanding the message. (Don’t give me that “Malarky”) It takes a really skilled person to wave a finger in someone’s face and not appear to be threatening, unlike Jan Brewer the former governor of Arizona.

12) “Bling Bling”  I like your Smile song by Shanice.  Superficial smile upheld by Vaseline isn’t allowed.

Go ahead and register for the course of Biden_ology. Your body will absorb straight up GOODNESS and soooo much FLAVOR.   Biden_ology is a rich blend of black tea but we will not extract from Biden’s vanilla.  Taking this course will help relieve your stress.  Just think what would happen if you encounter Biden at least 3 Times a day or 3 times a week.  The path you have chosen will lower your risk of a heart attack or stroke.  Have you thought about what will happen if you encounter the contenders of 2016 at least once a day? Stroke and heart attack are imminent. How did the ambulance get here so quickly?  The ambulance was just around the corner of the stroke and heart attack. See what happens when holding a conversation with a bunch of Knuckle-Heads.   Your energy got drained.  Well, it’s not too late to enroll in Biden_ology an increase your energy level. Don’t be afraid to gain the happiness factor. You won’t regret taking this course. Biden_ology offers the same health benefits as Black Tea. Sip! Sip!  Drink up.  As far as the warning labels I don’t think surgeon general Vivek Murthy will contest the man behind the science. I’m cool with that.  It would be awesome for the surgeon general to contest the contender’s Bs.  Why not? Who held up the confirmation of Vivek Murphy?  Exactly!  The science of Biden_ology jumps starts the mind and points out the “Malarky”.

A real combination of sweet cinnamon to help control weight, lower blood sugar, and help neutralize odors.  Do you feel the urge to eat yourself into a coma while talking to people who nauseate you?  The man behind the science will help you control your appetite, stay focus, and remain alert.   Your blood sugar will stabilize.  The dizziness and nausea will go away. The stench will be removed from the room. Everyone seems to agree Biden is a MIGHTY GOOD MAN.  So does Salt and Pepper who sings this song.   Black pepper generates hydrochloric acid to help reduce the heartburn and indigestion.  I will get my amounts of money worth in taking this course and pour in the honey.   If I could only nail down the ability to establish friendships and develop long-lasting relationships it would make me so happy. People would realize I’m not rude at all. Biden_ology is just the course I need.  Biden is quite recognizable except to the ladies in Trump’s beauty pageant.  These women couldn’t tell the moderator who is the Vice-President of the United States. Look at this book. It has a lot of factual information and no fluff. Readers Digest was the condensed version and had more substance in its cup.  The last book I read was so big I felt as though I would throw up. Peppermint, Spearmint, and Chamomile Tea will help relieve this symptom.

Ginger is in the mix.  It will help with nausea and your loss of appetite. Ginger helps with the digestive problem.  Throw out the tummy tums and relax. Don’t worry about acid reflux. You’re safe.  This is the science behind the man who knows how to roll and treat people gingerly.   Add a star of anise. Don’t use the Japanese version of a star of anise.  You might get poison. Use the Chinese version.  Trump would like the China version. Get rid of inflammation and the yeast in your system.   Everyone has probably encountered a fungus in their life. Did you get poison?  Perhaps the wrong brand was used.  You’re rolling with the wrong crew. We know who is the STAR of anise.

Go ahead! Take the course and learn how to deal with the beast. Here come the smile and the laughter.  “Malarky” Thereafter!   BIDEN  shut down the debate.  We can’t leave out the clove. There are no bruises, headaches, and your blood is circulating first-rate. Biden_ology is classy and full of robust flavor. The science behind the man is classic Chai Latte you will never forget to savor. Take the course and learn about behaviors.  Not a branch of knowledge but the whole tree. The science behind the man who struggled and survived many adversities. Save a seat for me in your LIFE LESSONS UNIVERSITY. Biden_ology!

Dedicated to the Vice President Of The United States

JOE BIDEN

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!

Snitch This! Here’s The Playlist.

Whew-Wee! You mean to tell me the associates are not allowed to sit on the benches anymore.  What! The only place you can have your breaks and lunches will be in the Break Room or outside.  Hey, I will admit I sat over in the corner at the service desk and would eat my lunch. No one could see me. The majority of the times when the associates came to pick up the returns they didn’t know I was there. Other associates begin to come and sit on the bench inside customer service.  There are 2 benches by the time clock near the podium. One night I was sitting behind the service desk eating my lunch. The Co-manager comes up and started throwing return buckets around. This incident was witnessed by 2 other associates and the other CSM.  The CSM said it happen to her over the weekend.  Okay! The other CSM acted like it was a normal occurrence.  Let’s just assume the Co-Manager was angry probably because the returns had not been picked up by the associates or the Co-manager may have felt the CSMs had not called out enough times. I continued to eat my lunch.  The next night the assistant manager rolls up and tells me it was very unprofessional to eat behind the service desk. The assistant manager said she would inform the other associates they could not eat in the area by customer service and sit on the benches by the TIME clock.  The customers would get mad if they would see us sitting around and not waiting for them.   What I couldn’t understand is you could not see me at the service desk. You had to either be told by someone I was there or come into customer service to physically know I was there. The majority of the associates are aware I very seldom go to the Break Room.

Here we go again!  Some people don’t give up. We can now add the vacation request and the public service announcement by the store manager booting me off THE BENCH as another pattern of Walmart’s retaliation for JULY.  Request date was May 23, 2015, and only 1 week approved in July 2015.  CEO Doug McMillon is going to be thrilled to death. I don’t mine filing the 4th Department of Labor and Industrial Relations Missouri Commission On Human Rights complaint. The contact number is 573-751-3300. That just means more paperwork and giving The Human Rights Commission more information about Walmart’s unfair labor practices. The people Walmart leave in charge. Wait until you get further into the story. You will see WHY the month of JULY really means so much to me. I won’t spoil the surprise.

Strange, in 2008 I would stand by the cart carrel to gather heat when my body became cold(booted out).  In  2011 the room by automotive where customers waited for their cars(booted out).  The same year, over on the grocery side of DSD, the room where they kept the red totes with the cigarettes (booted out). In  2012 the room behind customer service was well heated (booted out).  I was in areas where the customer could not see me nor the associates. I was booted out by the same Co-manager.  I just wanted a place to eat in peace. Here it is July 2015, maybe Co-manager Theresa just wants me booted out of the building period.  I guess it is more professional for Co-manager Theresa to throw around return buckets and let the associates see how well she handled situations.  Well, you know you can’t single a person out. I guess the store manager forgot in 2013 he sent another Co-manager to boot me out of a small area.  Now it has been made into a tiny office.  The store manager made the announcement everyone has to eat in the Break Room or outside.  I wonder if Co-manager Theresa left something out? Maybe she forgot to tell the Store Manager, Randall Addison how many times she has booted me out.  Even in the nightly meetings because I ask too many questions I was booted out.  What do you think? It feels to me as though I was singled out. I wonder if any of the other associates have been booted out as many TIMES as I have.

DUDE! I am not a union organizer. Just to let you know I am not being disrespectful to management. Walmart has a gift card out that has a grey background with bold dark grey capital letters spelling out the word DUDE.  I bought one to show certain members of management because if you say something they may take offense to what you say or take what you say out of context. I was in the office talking to Assistant manager Dianne about my vacation time. My voice elevated and she said it appeared to her I was coming across as angry. WOW! I explain to her I thought I was expressing myself as being passionate. Here goes the “Angry Black Women Syndrome.” There have been many times Assistant Manager  Dianne has been out on the floor and raised her voice at the associates. I thought she was frustrated because the grocery side has always been short on staffing. I never viewed her as an angry White Women. Sir Chris Knight of the Round Table this is why the President always kept a smooth low tone.   Strange how certain members of management are the flamethrowers of disrespect. Another adverse action on Wal-marts behalf. It only creates a hostile environment. Yes, it will affect the associate job performance.  The Associates see Wal-mart as bullies. Walmart takes everything away, dictating all the rules, and humiliating the associates by saying they are slow and unproductive.  We just recently lost 2 more GOOD PEOPLE and hard workers for this very same reason. Man! I hate being stereotyped.

Man! Where did the TIME go?  Where’s your buddy?  He is back in lawn and garden tonight?  The USA is working in so many departments tonight. All the associates are spread thin and working in different areas.  There are not a lot of people on GM (General Merchandise) side. We are needed on the Grocery Side. So call me early for my returns. I certainly will.  Are you taking an early break? What are you going to eat? Tonight I will snack on a Rocky Road Snicker and a Naked Mango Smoothie.  I will save the ice-cream for another day.  You look so peaceful sitting there.  I’m really tired. Sall, I promised you a story.  This one is for you. I have been reflecting back on many of my stories. There are a lot of people missing in action. As my memory unfolds these where all GOOD PEOPLE. It’s all GOOD. I hated to see them leave the store.  Each person left me feeling reassured they would be alright.  It was better for their health, well-being, and they were looking forward to a salary increase.   Many of the associates made it clear they wanted better treatment and could wait for the pay increase. These associates were tired of the poor treatment they had to receive from Walmart. No matter how hard the associates would try they were viewed as slow and unproductive.

How in the world can you schedule the associates pass their availability without asking? Walmart doesn’t mine. It is just another violation of a LOOPHOLE.  The rules in the policy can change at any time to suit the needs of Walmart.  It was hard to come to work while certain members of management would beat you down. In the morning when it was time to get off, your self-esteem was wrapped around your kneecaps.  Certain members of management on several occasions reminded the associates if they did not like Walmart’s treatment they could go elsewhere.  How many TIMES have I been told the very same thing by certain members of management?  All those GOOD PEOPLE who are no longer with the store looks very relieved and less stressed.   All those GOOD people came back to the store to remind the workers how much they miss them.  Sall, they left me with GOOD memories.   WOW! To go so far as to tell an associate to find another job if you don’t play by Walmart’s rules.  It can make the associates feel helpless. Time to be a Disruptive Innovator. Here goes being bad and breaking chain of command to bring a new way to get this message off of the bench and onto the GRID. On a GOOD note, Oprah said don’t forget to document.  Oprah stated sometimes it is TIME  to move on to another job.  Snitch This! Here’s the Playlist.

Sall, there are so many jobs websites. Forbes listed Top 75 Websites for your career in alphabetical order.  Forbes also has 100 top websites for Women. I say to you Sall, Raison d’être. You will never have to feel like you are trapped.  I really did not like being called a Snitch. Toure thinks it is horrible too. I figure if I SNITCH it would be to help serve a greater purpose for other people’s live.  I really don’t like the term, Snitch. Who’s Toure? He is a guardian of the Knights of The Round Table on MSNBC.  Guess What! I am not sitting on the bench delivering a locked in message. Power to the GRID! Sall, I want the world to know that these people on this list will always be eternal flames in my heart.

There are TIMES when I created a list and I can see race, age, sex, national origin, religion, and color just pop out. Asking questions helps. Let’s visit Mr. Rogers neighborhood.  Who dominates this list?  What? Shut Up!

1.) Nadia-Mommy of the Year. Love sharing time with her sons. She was a GOOD HARD WORKER and loved her job at Walmart. What a loss!

2.) Pete-Mr. Stylist himself and loved every kind of shoe in the world. GOOD WORKER, friendly and easy-going and definitely GOOD PEOPLE.

3.) Rashaud- Love his music and the Brother could sing. GOOD WORKER. Doing his thing at GM. His favorite candy was vanilla carmen creme. Rashaud did not like being called a BOY.  So Snitch This! There’s more to the Playlist.

4.) Antonio-Delightful personality and very unique. I can see Antonio zipping through the store with his bag of Smart Popcorn and his bottle of Star Bucks Frappuccino on his lunch hour.  GOOD PERSON and he tried hard.

5.) Balvin-Mr. Healthy Eater. Love mangoes, avocados, all types of fruit just like you Sall.  A very Hard and GOOD WORKER. All around smooth and a very easy-going person.  What a loss.  Balvin comes to Walmart at night proudly wearing his Park Hill School District Badge.  This brother made it clear he would go out on his own terms.  He was told basically by the Co-manager if he could not wax the floors they no longer had any use for his services.  Park Hill is now hiring.

6.) Rob loved his old school music, a comedian, and love old school candy.  GOOD PEOPLE and GOOD WORKER

7.) Tanya-The Grandmother of the year. Always shopping for her grandchildren and Ms. Entrepreneur of opening up a chain of Day Care Centers. Hold onto your dream. GOOD PEOPLE and GOOD WORKER.

Sall, there have only been 6 Black assistant managers in this store over a period of 14 years. Walmart will probably bring another Black manager to cover up. Can Walmart cover up all the hurt and pain they have to cause the associates?  Look around. There is not one Black manager in the store yet.  Hmmm! How discriminatory is this?  It didn’t take long to get rid of Mr. Ricky.  Who masterminds a plan to alleviate all Black Assistant Managers from store #2857?  When you write a story and the people start disappearing from the story there is a great cause to be concerned.  The Confederate Flag has been removed.  Walmart said they would participate in removing symbols of the Confederate flag.   Now it is TIME for the IDEOLOGY, and the people who want to hang onto the GOOD OLD BOY SYSTEM, and THE TAP ON THE BACK be taken DOWN.  Home Office controls the heat, water, and air. If everything is controlled by Home Office maybe it is TIME for the associates to organize and go to HOME OFFICE and list concerns for yourself, the store, and pay increases. The associates have the right to organize and Town Hall management out of their positions.  I think this is why the associates can no longer set on THEM THERE BENCHES.  They can always go to the GRID and they won’t get written up.  Walmart may have to Pull the Plug but I, Linda Garrett, choose to breathe on my own.   Can you hear Patti LaBelle and Michael McDonald singing On My Own? It would truly help if the associates get in touch with HOME OFFICE, the news media, and DWIT (Do Whatever It Takes) to bring down the Confederate Flag. This is Slavery, Bondage, and Control. The associates have always held the power in their hand. Now it is TIME to use their VOICES. Now you see WHY I get booted out.

Sall, we need to be a part of the policy-making process. THE TAP ON THE BACK gives Walmart leverage to change their policy to fit their needs at any given TIME, not the associates. The TAP ON THE BACK disrespect the worker’s rights and weakens the laws of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  Sall, Title Vll prohibits employment discrimination based on race, religion, sex, color, and national origin. Sall, you are from Africa. Knowing your rights gives you leverage and puts the power in your hands, not Walmart.  The TAP ON THE BACK gives power to Walmart Corporation who has failed to respect the laws.   It is quite easy for Walmart to disrespect those associate who has worked for Walmart Corporation for many years.  Tenure is not respected.  We are not respected.   An example would be Walmart raise increase. The longer a person stays their wage is suppressed even more. This hinders the development of one’s job performance.  Sall, there are laws that protect you from pay discrimination. Anyone coming in after the raise increase has walked into the door making more than the person who spent years to get to the new associate’s salary. Think about the people who were here before the wage increase went into effect.  Some associates were paid at a higher rate and were in a lower pay grade.  Who wants more responsibility in a higher pay grade but receives less money? How did these associates reach their salary cap so soon?   Walmart raise increase is based on how much they favor an individual.  God has no favorites. God grants Grace. God does not discriminate Amen!

Every person did not get a raise but many of the associates thought the raise would be for all of Walmart associates. Laws are put in place that protects our HUMAN RIGHTS against Discrimination In The Workplace. Can I get an Amen from Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney, from New York?  Missouri is a No-Fault State but it does not give Walmart Corporation the right to create an UMBRELLA OF LIES. Do not be intimidated by Walmart’s size.  Walmart must be held accountable for their sins.  Sometimes we fall from GRACE because we are BLINDED by GREED which stares us in the FACE. Corporations lose sight of the people who put them on the map. Money is the #1 priority.  We lose GOOD EMPLOYEES. We lose GOOD CUSTOMERS, We lose GOOD MANAGEMENT.  From the echoes of Senator Elizabeth Warren from Massachusetts, if you are too big to fail you are too big to exist.  From the battle cries of Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont, Demos.org, UpWorthy, and many others the minimum wage needs to be raised to $15.00 an hour in order to be competitive. To uplift the poor from the poverty level and keep the middle class in tack.  Can I get AMEN to that?

I love AMAZING GRACE. The tune floating in my head is Oh Happy Day. When Jesus washed, Oh when he washed, he washed my sins away.  Oh, Happy Day. No, you don’t earn Grace. Grace is granted by God Almighty. Grace is a special gift handed to us by God who will forgive our sins. God will judge us all in the end.  Do we deserve GRACE? NO!  Man judges but can never grant a person GRACE. There is so much that man has to forgive himself so he may judge objectively. Who forgives our sin?  Well, you know some people are not in the forgiveness business.  Thank God for granting us GRACE.  God Favors us all. A man has his favorites. Sall, this is when discrimination comes into play because one side is favored more than the other. God does not discriminate. God is in a Neutral Zone.  Through Gods lens he sees no color, dollar amount doesn’t matter, nor the size of the corporation, and whether or not if you are a celebrity when your ship sails it will be TIME to go.   Oh, Happy Day. Sall, this is why we need to step outside and bring in independent investigators who do not work for Walmart and will remain Neutral in evaluating any type of grievance. All the people on the list below need to know they do have a choice and always get a second opinion. It doesn’t need to be Wal-Mart’s opinion.

Off the top of my head, I do not wish to view any of the associates as FAMILIAR STRANGERS.  Somewhere down the line, Sall, we must complete the conversation and learn to get along in order to have a productive work night especially when we are short on people. We spend a lot of hours together and I would like to think I have learned something about each associate as they come to the register.  What puts a smile on their face and keep the associates within the boundaries of remaining human? Once you give these 25 associates their zu-zu’s and wam-wam’s you got 25 smiles without a raise.

These are all GOOD people and hard workers. Our store consists of many GOOD hard workers.  I probably can name something they all like or they all like to do or places where the associates visited. The associates are not FAMILIAR STRANGERS but more like FAMILY.  This is how the job gets done by being able to communicate to an associate the smallest of their interest is important.  Let the associates know you are paying attention and you do care.

I can look in the basket of many of the customers and remind them if they left out any general merchandise or grocery items. There are a lot of GOOD customers that have frequent the store. We have lost a lot of GOOD customers.  The people feel Walmart does not provide quality service. The customers do not like the way Walmart treats the associates. Many of the customer’s children were hired at Walmart and this was their first job experience.  Doctors, Attorneys, Pilots, Judges and all people from different nationalities and all walks of life get off the plane from KC International, which is just around the corner. People coming in off their flight was surprised Walmart didn’t have the latest technology and the store was so outdated. A young man from Arizona said he was surprised we didn’t have any self-checkout.  He said for over 5 years he worked installing registers for Walmart Corporation but had since parted ways. He said any tech that walks into a store and notices you have no self-checkout lanes it meant the store was at risk for high theft. Not putting in self-checkout lanes would be a way to reduce loss in the store. Interesting!

Our registers had the oldest programs and should have been upgraded in 2007.  Every register has crashed. The most popular registers 19,1,5,7,9,11,13,17,20,21,22,24,25,26,27,29, and 32.  At the Service desk 91 hasn’t worked in a long time  Register 93 has a tendency to freeze. Register 95 has been in and out of commission. Register 2,8, and 19(still have problems), 68 and 27 was down on the general merchandise side.  Who did we serve with all those registers out of commission on and off for the past 8 yrs? Who was in violation? Did the customers receive GOOD service?  Is this one of the reasons why Walmart has such a low score in customer service? Ask Consumer Report and Shop Smart.   There were no registers opened because people were not hired to be placed on the broken registers.  How much sense does that make?  Instead of getting new registers and turnstiles we have received another patch job.  All those years and the registers were not working properly. What about the scales?  Now there is one hell-of-a compliance issue.  A fortune could be made if the customer’s fruit and vegetables were not weighed properly.  Electronics has a huge compliance issue.  Two people should be staffed in Electronics at all Times.  Hey, Walmart can change the rules anytime.  The Debit readers are still a major problem.  Debit readers are unable to read the credit/debit cards with the new computer chip.  Customers do not wish to swipe their card 2 or more times.  Yes, the customers have been overcharged and called Walmart out. The customer showed on their smartphones, iPhones, and Androids it was a Walmart’s problem, not a banking problem. The customer wanted the problem resolved right away.  Customers have made it clear, “who needs management.”  Customers had the policy on their phones which loaded a lot quicker than management responded.  Snitch This! Here’s The Playlist.

It would be so much better if new TOUCH SCREEN computers had been installed and a faster program used.  MOTOROLA!  Come on now. Guess who was held accountable for the mechanical errors. SURPRISE!  See these dates Sall, 5/30/2012, 7/13/2012, 7/16/2012, 7/26/2012, 9/22/2012. This was my last trip to HR.  I walk around every night with those dates in my pocket.   I wrote a story on November 26, 2012,  Please Proceed__Get The Transcript. Those dates demonstrate coaching for failure, not for success. It reminded me of a certain member of management, Co-Manager Trez, behind the camera. This was another attempt to set me up for a Structural Dismissal or Structural Discharge.  There are other Structural dates that followed in 2013, 2014, and 2015. Even before these dates, I noticed a pattern of INTENTIONAL unnecessary write-ups. Sall, it is just another fancy way of saying you are on your way to getting FIRED TRUMP STYLE.  Well in my case, certain members of management are doing everything in their power Intentionally and will create an LIE to get rid of me, you, and any person who stands up for themselves. Did you notice a pattern, Sall?  Wow! management was really desperate in JULY of 2012.  They are desperate now.  JULY 2015 has arrived. It felt as though I have been money laundered and hung out to dry. In cases of money laundering, it is never done all at once. Information is altered to make the transaction appear more acceptable. Walmart has their heart set on taking me to the cleaners. I have always wanted what was best for the associates and the customers.  This is no longer Walmart’s goal.

Look out for the words INVOLUNTARY TERMINATION with MISCONDUCT on exit papers. You better know it!  I have read many of the associate’s exits papers in my Time.   Sall, INVOLUNTARY TERMINATION is what I call a Euphemism. It is the polite way so folks don’t get embarrassed telling the associate they are booted out permanently.  Corporations go through the back door so employers can avoid paying benefits to employees.  Who volunteers to get fired? Will any of the personal discussions/verbal, written coaching and the lousy evaluation you receive be dropped if you decide to return?  Are you going to receive the salary you left out with if and when you return? What a way to say you are out the door.  Why would an associate come back to the scene of the crime in 30 days for rehire?  Really! Get fired again. Now Walmart or any corporation can say how they really worked with you and they tried so hard.  What employer would take an associate back for MISCONDUCT? Does Walmart have some sort of 30-day treatment plan before they fire you again?  Charges not expunged. Well, the new Euphemism of today would be  INVOLUNTARY WORK SLAUGHTER.  If you come back for the 2nd TIME I guess it would be 2nd degree associate slaughter.  Have you figured out who got burned?  What a way to destroy your work record. You think Unemployment is going to give you any BENEFITS? NO! Is it set up this way to force an associate back to the corporation without them paying any BENEFITS. This doesn’t appear to be legal.

Look for patterns of behaviors and always watch the dates.  The cashiers, CSMs, and an employee called to the register off the floor are at high risk of getting on a register and being set up by certain members of management behind the looking-glass or AP (100). I am not being paranoid. I have gone through this personal hell myself. I have other dates to prove Walmart’s reckless Intentional behavior.  Are the cameras for the associates?  Are the cameras for the associates who are viewed as thieves?   Certain management can get an associate for Time theft or grazing (eating an item that has not been purchased) on the clock.   No person working at Walmart should be mentally raped by the excessive surveillance of certain members of management. Get another storyline when it comes to the registers.  How can Walmart hold the associates accountable for their being out of compliance?  The Coin-Star machine needs to be checked. Customers are putting their money in the machine and when the customer gets to the register the ticket will say Do not redeem this ticket. This ticket has been used. The whole store needed to be remodeled by 2007 but instead, we got a patch job. Now we are getting another patch job.  Walmart Corporation needs to be held accountable. Walmart creates policies, drop the ball on policies, and pick up the ball on policies to cover Walmart, not the associate. Sall, this is where the associates have the right to assemble and change the rules of the game to benefit their behalf. Sall, there are many things that need to be fixed at Walmart and with Walmart Corporation. The greatest news of today Sall, you are not one of the people who need to be fixed. You are definitely GOOD people with great potentials.  Amen to that with a tip of a hat. More voices are needed.

Two years ago the roof got worked on, maybe.  Unbelievable! Look what happened the other night.  An object punctured the roof. The rain came pouring in from the roof and caused damage to merchandise in certain areas. The grocery side vestibule and the general merchandise side vestibule floods quite often. There are leaks throughout the ceiling.  I just hope and pray the roof doesn’t collapse killing any of the associates or any members of management.  It shouldn’t take a tragic event to happen at Walmart to get it right. Will Walmart be held accountable for being out of compliance?

Surveys out and it is Time to tell the CEO Doug McMillon, Judith McKenna, Chief Operating Manager US Walmart, and Gregg Foran, President and CEO Walmart US how I and many associates feel.

1.) The wage put before the associates were unfair, not competitive, and done in a deceptive manner.  This wage is suppressive for those who have been at Walmart for many years. This wage covers up and goes through the backdoor on the person who has worked on a lower level and paid more by means of the Tap On The Shoulder.  Capped out associates received a 2% increase.  The associates who are at a higher level and paid less and not capped out early is the man in the middle whose salary has no wage increase at all.

2.) Walmart reputation has been scarred by not offering $15.00 an hour.  Walmart is a major beneficiary of Food Stamps and EBT. Walmart workers cost the taxpayers $6.2 Billion in Public Assistance.  Walmart gets $104 million dollar tax break for giving their executives outrageous pay packages and bonuses.  The associates get ran into the ground and end up utilizing public assistance.  Big time former CEO Mike Duke got off the hinge with fringe benefits by running a company into the ground.  Walmart got away with just being embarrassed. Our last bonus was $34.00 and before it was $62.00. I want to let the mom, Amanda Moore, who went to a hearing on raising the minimum wage for $15.00 is ab-so-lute-ly correct. When will the associates of Walmart get a raise in their PAYCHECK?

3.)  The associate’s low wages contribute to Walmart map of success.   The success of Walmart depends upon associates not being paid their fair share.  The associates are a huge part of the Walmart Welfare system at $9.00 hr. The contributions of the many hours worked by the associates can easily be remedied by hiring the appropriate staffing.  Hiring for full-time employment instead of running Super Center stores off of part-time employment, skeletal crews, and contracts of Labor Ready associates who do not make the 90 days. This is an Intentional strategy I feel Walmart puts into place to get their job done. Walmart can control the accrued vacation TIME of the associates by not hiring. This forces the associates who have been there the longest into 1 week of vacation even if you have earned 3 weeks. So as you can see Walmart takes away associates benefits.  Only Walmart benefits.

4.) Walmart pay grade can be easily understood. The problem with the pay grade are associates who get the TAP ON THE SHOULDER  get a higher rate of pay.  The associate’s with the higher level pay grade is lower. Who wants more responsibility for less money? Who wants a big fancy title to later find out it is just a big fancy title with more work.

5.) If you were not over the paid grade or salary capped out then you were left out of the raise increase.  Why isn’t a salary cap or bonus cap placed on the CEO and other big-time executives?

6.) The associates are not satisfied with the overnight differential, and rate of pay. The associates felt compelled to sign as they do with any other personal discussion, written or verbal coaching out of fear due to retaliation.

7.) There is a huge disconnect in the store. The store manager is very distant, verbally abusive to members of management, and associates. Negative feedback is his specialty.   This was the person in charge of explaining the pay wage. Really!  All the overnight associates dying to get home from the brutal night they worked to be called to the personnel office to face off with WHO, Randall Addison. No, it was not explained thoroughly to the associates. What took Randall Addison so long to tell the associates how the pay wage would work? Where is HR? If any associates have any grievance use your open door. Contact Delinda Davis-913-268-7904 or Gerald Henrickson-913-268-7904.  The doors of the Church is always open. Find a Neutral Zone that will weigh both sides.  So to all the associates you need to step outside and use the number above. Don’t forget HOME OFFICE is Walmart big send-off button. Walmart works for Walmart.

Can you answer these questions for the associates? What is the purpose of the survey when nothing changes on behalf of the associates? Where is the check and balance system at Walmart when Walmart changes their policy to accommodate their needs only? Are these changes coming from Corporate? Are these changes coming from the store manager?   Who initiated the change in the Vacation Policy? I have read the vacation policy 6 times. It covers the areas of Accruing vacation, Using vacation, Holidays, Unscheduled vacation, Status change, Vacation pay at termination. I requested 12 weeks ahead of two weeks of vacation. You think I would have paid my dues. Guess Not!

1.) your vacation time can be used for ANY REASON.

2.) I did not request vacation unexpectedly, nor on an unscheduled basis

3.) I notified my manager for the reason of request.

Approval of vacation requests goes like this.

Your supervisor will review your request to use available vacation based on your work responsibilities.  I have not taken any time off.  I have accrued 3 weeks of vacation over a 14 year period. I made sure that I would not try to schedule my vacation off during the Back To School Tax-Free Weekend so it would not impact business.  There are Two other associates coded as CSM’s (customer service managers)  that have already taken their vacation. There are CSM’s on the second shift who said they would not have a problem coming overnight to help out. So I am asking CEO Doug McMillon, Judith McKenna (Chief Operating Manager of Walmart US) and Gregg Foran, President, and CEO Walmart the US, What seems to be the problem? I am following Walmart’s Policy. It looks Discriminatory when you know others associates got 2 weeks and you didn’t. I guess that is why Walmart has no respect for Tenure. Walmart made the policy and I guess it is time to change the policy to benefit Walmart again. As long as you stay it is not beneficial for the associate.

LOOPHOLE: This information does not create a bond of marriage or a contract with Walmart. Ain’t no other contracts involved. Walmart can change or modify any information at any given time without notice at their sole discretion. Consistent with applicable laws.  You are not married to Walmart.  If you are married to Walmart get ready for an annulment or divorce at any given time for no reason at all. It doesn’t matter how long you have been in the relationship.  That’s right, you are free to leave Walmart and you better believe Walmart will definitely get rid of you no matter what it takes. These are the changes we as the associate need to fight on. Basically, Walmart has all the say. It doesn’t matter once again about Walmart size.  Walmart needs to be held ACCOUNTABLE.  I will not allow Walmart to LIE to me. My internal hard drive becomes like Eric Holder, former Attorney General of the United States. You can’t talk to Eric Holder crazy or be disrespectful.  My external hard drive becomes like one of the greatest evolved mind of all TIMES,  Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

We need to send an email to Hillary Clinton on New Momentum on Paid Leaves. It would be nice if I got my 2 weeks request Paid Vacation after working 14 years.  If all of the other associates who have earned accrued TIME wants to take 2 weeks, so be it.   Walmart Corporation has stripped away 2 weeks of vacation down to one week even if you have accrued TIME. It is called HIRE MORE PEOPLE.  STOP FIRING and FORCING OUT GOOD PEOPLE. Take a seminar on DIVERSITY, COMMUNICATION, and INTEGRITY. It is a shame Walmart strips away what the associates are entitled by the pathway of less hiring another strategy of Walmart’s INTENTIONAL behavior.   Another major strategy used by Walmart is overtime.  It distracts the associates who are focused on more money.   This is a major strategy used by Walmart’s INTENTIONAL behavior to justify violating their 6-day work rule.  Many of the associates are not asked by certain members of management to have their availability changed. Certain members of management seize the opportunity and change the associate’s availability as they see fit.  Later the associates are forced to kill the overtime. If the overtime is not killed in a certain TIME frame the associates pay the price of being coached and can lose their job.  A list is generated of all the associated who should kill the overtime with NO MORE EXCUSES. Those long hours and stretched out days begin to wear on the associates and they begin to miss days. Associates are called into the office for termination because of their Attendance which management controlled. What a setup. It is Time to seize the opportunity to solve some problems.

If every associate in each department put together a list of what is needed to operate their department, changes to be made, and violations then Walmart can use the terminology of TOTAL STORE. Right now it is a TOTAL WRECK. Snitch This! Here’s The Playlist for Automotive:

1.) cannot work with a skeleton crew-HIRE MORE PEOPLE

2.) telzon and printers are out of date

3.) no proper oil manual for 2015 oil specs

4.) battery rack out of date

5.) card readers keep crashing on registers

6.) tire Lifts are out of date

7.) mask are needed for techs doing fuel injections

8.) schedules are constantly adjusted because associates are placed outside their availability

9.) new check machines eat check

10.) only one phone line back in automotive

11.) hand-held telzon is freezing up and the service orders need to be placed on hand-held telzon

12.) Need new registers. Associates should not be held accountable for Wal-Mart not upgrading their registers

13.) tire machine is out of date and no custom rims can be done

14.) the program for the computers out in the shop are way out of date

If anyone in automotive has any more suggestions, please feel free to contribute. All departments on the General Merchandise Side, Grocery Side, DSD, GM Receiving solicit your concerns and ideas to HOME OFFICE or an investigative team in the Neutral Zone/MCHR (Missouri Commission On Human Rights-573-751-3325). Contact the Neutral Zone from State to State. Don’t forget only God grants GRACE.

Sall, I heard something really positive awhile back.  I was watching one of my favorite shows, The Cycle.  There was a message of GROWING HOPE in Oakland delivered by KWAME ANKU.  He stated, ” A Small Mind focuses on the problem.”  A Big Mind focuses on the solution to the problem.”  “A Genius Mind sees the opportunity that lies in the problem.”  WHEW! Amen to That!  Another young man, Albrey Brown, told of his success in bridging the gap between the tech world (tech-quity) and diversity.   On the for real side, I just wished Walmart understood Diversity. As far as Tech-quity, Walmart is so far behind in technology at store #2857. This store needs more than a remodel. I can hear Jenny Horne, state representative of South Carolina, delivering her speech. Her tearful voice let the world know she would not be a part of what the Confederate flag represented. Jenny Horne was a descendant of Jefferson Davis and she was not holding on to the ideology of slavery.  Removing the shackle from our feet to our mind at the rate of $9.00 hr. will keep the associates below the poverty level, in bondage, and forever confined. Sall, we can no longer be Always A Slave At Walmart. It really felt GOOD getting off the bench and going global. That bench was so hard.  I love the GRID and sitting at my desk. It is much safer here.  CEO Doug McMillon needs to rethink his position on the raise increase and restore Dignity back into Walmart Corporation by giving the associates $15.00 hr.

CEO Doug McMillon took his cut, tripled his salary, and he has a big bonus package.  Learn to invest in the associates and learn about Diversity. Where is the Integrity of Walmart Corporation?   If another manager tells one more associate if they don’t like Wal-Mart rules find another job. The associates have their Snitch This! Here’s The Playlist.  I was shooting for the genius status today. Sall, I hope the associates heard me. I like our global bench.  Investment in the associates would make Walmart a better place. Why am I the enemy?  I want whats best for our store?

Any person who completed reading this story today got through 6827 words. If you don’t think I have anything to report or documented think again. You Better Know It! Snitch This! Coming at you with the JULY 2015 Playlist.

Walmart CEO Doug McMillon__Aka BabyFace Nelson

Good morning Doug McMillon! This is Linda from store #2857 in Kansas City Missouri. I read the interview CEO Inherited Big Problems.  Whatever you inherited the associates/management inherited 3 times as worst. Their voices, spirits, and the ability to fight back has been stripped away.  I wish Money.cnn.com had gotten in contact with me.  Grading your performance would be very easy.   You get an F. Why? Doug, you weren’t honest with the associates. You know Doug, it’s very troubling the associates at store #2857  hasn’t taken an interest to learn more about the company. The associates/management rights are violated on a daily basis. Through the fog, there is not one glimmer of HOPE or CHANGE.  There is no OPPORTUNITY at Walmart. The biggest confusion for the associates is focusing on the money and not understanding how Walmart really works.  Maybe you could give me a glimmer of HOPE and CHANGE on my belated birthday by answering some of my questions.  How would you restore TRUST to the associates?  Do you think the associates will be able to TRUST you when they find out your raise increased by 168%?   Why were the associates hours cut?  Why did the associates have to kill their overtime? What! Profit before the people. Is this the reason why Walmart remained neutral in the debate of raising the minimum wage?

Doug increase had to come first. Doug came into the company at 9.5 million dollars and his salary has skyrocketed to 25.6 million dollars.  WOW!  Can you explain how your money package work? The associates worked extremely hard to keep Walmart on the map. Don’t you think the associates raise should be increased to $15.00 dollars an hour? Bernie Sanders, senator from Vermont, strongly advocates for increase wages of associates to help lift Walmart associates out of the poverty level. I just wanted to let Senator Bernie Sanders know I agree with him wholeheartedly and I was paying attention. The 2% increase for the associates with the salary cap was quite disturbing. I feel the associates got milked. Why hasn’t there been a salary cap on David Glass, Lee Scott, Mike Duke, and Bill Simon Salaries? How is it possible that the 1%  is rewarded for their INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS? These guys handle the scandals,  got paid, and remain on Walmart’s board. Why didn’t everyone from Walmart get a salary increase across the board?  Doug McMillon did not fail to almost TRIPLE his salary but he cares about the ASSOCIATES. Who wears the face of INEQUALITY?  Aka Babyface Nelson steps out on stage to appear innocent and naive knowing all along it is about POWER, CONTROL, and MONEY.  Walmart brought along the face of Doug McMillon to convince the associates and the people Doug is a sheep and not a wolf dressed up in sheep clothing.  Body language tells more than words. I wanted the Knights of the Round Table MSNBC to know this article is located at Money@readingeagle.com.

In Doug’s interview with  CNN Money, he stated he listen to his critics Mike Duke and Lee Scott. I found the article about Mike Duke, Ex Walmart CEO’s Deferred pay: $140 million dollars quite interesting. WHOOO! I feel like I’m reading about Alphonse “Al” Capone and his strong-arm guy Frank Nitti (Francesco Raffaele Nitto).   Reading about Mike Duke and Lee Scott the 1% People Behind  The Walmart Empire is quite an educational moment. WOW! Lee Scott at that Time owned $200 million dollars in stock shares. In the year 2006 Lee Scott receive one of those packages that boosted his salary to $29.7 million dollars. Doug needs to explain what is inside those PACKAGES. What is wrong with the associate’s PACKAGES?  Why is it always the person at the bottom who has to sacrifice so much?  In 2005 Lee Scott salary was $15.7 million dollars. Lee Scott got a 100% increase the next year.  Is Doug McMillon trying to become the next 140 million dollars man?  What is Doug McMillon trying to learn from his critics? I guess the associates really did not get a real increase nor escape from poverty.  How can Doug McMillon convince the associates he is listening to the people instead of listening to the 1% and their money? How can Doug McMillon convince the associates that Walmart works for the associates and customers?

Has the minimum wage Rolled Out an admission of guilt or shame on Walmart behalf? I never like 2% milk but WHOLE milk is fattening. The perception of low-end jobs will always remain at Walmart as long as the 1% Of Walmart’s Empire receive 100% plus in salary increases with no caps.  It looks like it doesn’t matter what  INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS the 1% Force Behind Walmart’s Empire displays.  Where are the OPPORTUNITIES in Walmart? Who benefits the most from Walmart’s Opportunities? Is this how the Empire Strikes Back? The salaries Doug McMillon’s crew received made me see STARS.  Money matters can definitely cause WARS. All those years George Lucas was watching The Walton’s.  John Boy and his brothers are now the upgraded version of the Koch Brothers.  Who are the UNTOUCHABLES?

Our President had a town hall meeting. He pointed out the laws Congress would not pass to promote equality for the people.  The President gave me a huge birthday president.  His Selma Speech was riveting.  “Don’t throw away your voice.”   I will try to strike every chord.  Appeasement had no place in the President decision-making process.  We have a President who understands the development of cognitive abilities.  The associate’s voices are in a coma. Store #2857 is in great danger. This is the next ConAgra incident waiting to happen. The Congress in this region would be Gerald Hendrickson-Market Team Manager, Patrick Shanks-Director of Operations, Delinda Davis-HR. This store is in big trouble psychologically, physically, and emotionally. Why? Randall Addison wants control over the register tape, boxes of bags at the front-end, and the toilet tissue in the bathroom. The worse message any corporation can send is you can get any employee for a dime a dozen. Randall Addison has sent the message.  The associates/management is in FEAR of losing their jobs and pushed out before they can retire. The retaliation,  verbal abuse, harassment, discrimination (age/race) and the excessive surveillance is blatant. Many associates have fled the store to other stores. It is TIME for their Congress to get off their A… and do something. Many complaints have been reported and their Congress has turned a blind eye.  The associates/management is in FEAR of worse punishment if they step outside of Walmart and ask for help. It is Time for their Congress do their part before someone die from the stress of all the unrealistic demands made by Randall Addison, before the associates drink themselves to death,  over medicate themselves or someone gets killed.  I care about the associates and the customers, I am not afraid, and appeasement ain’t happening.  I  requested that an Independent Investigation by both Attorney Generals (Federal and State) and the Department of Labor Secretary Thomas Perez be brought in.  The mental abuse the associates/management has suffered is UNBELIEVABLE! This will be the second store Randall Addison would have taken down. Stop recycling people who need to be fired. Take responsibility! What happens when the pattern of behavior doesn’t change? INTENTIONAL BEHAVIOR!

Doug McMillon had a town hall meeting.  For years different teams handpick by Walmart stood by and acted just like Congress.  Associates in the store lost faith in HR.   Directives were followed and HR did ab-so-lute-ly nothing.  They had no plan. Appeasement is the number one rule for a solution.  Walmart works for Walmart and not the associates.   Just like our Congress works for the 1% and NOT the people, Walmart is the 1%.  Yes, I did see the Town Hall Meeting.  I would like for the associates to turn their attention to the World’s High Net Worth Selfie: 1 Trillion Dollars.  Look whose face is gleaming over the 257.4 Billion dollar company he runs.  Doug McMillon of course!  This was the net worth of Walmart in 2014. Makes your head spin.  I recall Doug McMillon stated he had issues with Trust.  The moderator asked questions of the Disruptive Innovators! World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2014 which can be revisited on YOUTUBE.   I have issues with all the money Walmart receives and their employees got nothing but abused. I like to hold a letter town hall meeting. It is too cold in Kansas City, Missouri for outside protesting. I thought it would be innovative and sit by the computer with my favorite cup of tea. Maharaja Chai Oolong tea which is really good and protests against Walmart. Walmart the ones with Bad Business Practices and False Information. Walmart gets everything wrong about the associates and destroys the Credibility of the associated. One of  Walmart strategies to get away with not paying UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS to the associates whom they fire. Constructive Discharge is the bigger picture. NOT THE MONEY but the BENEFIT. Who escape paying? Welcome To Walmart.

Will Doug McMillon ever consider cutting the big dollar salaries and bonuses off the board?   This would be a way to really increase the employee’s salaries.   Doug McMillon can take a lesson from Raymond Burse.  This is what I call leading by example. Raymond Burse,  President Of Kentucky University, Takes $90,000 Pay Cut To Give 24 Minimum Wage Workers A Wage.  Just think Doug McMillon if the Empire Strike Back and start donating parts of their salary who knows it might help restore faith and hope. That’s right, Walmart foundation has a policy if you don’t like the foundation’s agenda the people behind the scene cannot be voted out.  That idea might really piss your boss off and Doug may no longer be allowed on the trillion Dollar Selfie. Can CEO Doug McMillon say “Ya-Hoo-oo-oo?  The same model probably would apply to their board members and management in the stores.  Bottom line, there is no job creation in the world of Walmartization.  Who runs a nation of privatization of schools? Walmart supports charter schools and vouchers. When Public Schools fail they are out. Private sector fails they get bailed out.  What areas are always targeted? Exactly! Low-income areas are always the mark. Look what Scott Walker, governor of Wisconsin did to Wisconsin University. Scott Walker cut 300 million dollars from this public university. Scott Walker privatized K-12 educations.  This undermines public education.  Was this a scene taken right out of Walton’s playbook?   Who contributed mega bulks to the Keystone XL Tar Sand Pipeline?  Correct! The Walton’s shuffled out mega bulk to have the pipeline go through. It boils down to damaging the environment (sustainability), low-wage jobs, and undermining education through privatization. We are back to POWER, CONTROL, and MONEY. How can Doug McMillon separate himself from the ideology of WALTON’S PLAYBOOK and say he cares about the associates and the people? Are we looking at a failing Dynasty without a legacy?

Doug McMillon (CEO Walmart Inc.), Judith McKenna (Chief Operating Officer US Walmart), and Gregg Foran (President and CEO Walmart the US) you wanted to know what the associates Hear See, and Feel. The associates at store #2857 HEAR they are worthless, they can be replaced, NO ONE WILL EXCEED EXPECTATION, management vacations will be stripped away if they do not have the back room straighten out in 2 weeks, NO EXCUSES, they work too slow, constant shouting, bullying, and cursing. The associates/management SEE a store manager spiraling downward out of control, manipulative, angry, a bully, and insecure along with 2 co-managers as his watchdogs.  The associates/management see themselves being ripped apart and demeaned in front of each other and customers. The associates/management can no longer believe in Walmart 3 basis beliefs when the store manager has violated every belief.   The associate FEEL the hurt, pain, shame, of never being able to do enough.  The appeasement has caused a mental death and a coma induced by FEAR.  There is no HOPE, CHANGE, OPPORTUNITY and FUTURE in Walmart at least not at store #2857 location.

I am not the Voice of Walmart but an associate who truly cares. I have a VOICE and a CHOICE and I will not throw my VOICE away. I am not asking the associates/management to believe in me but to BELIEVE IN THEMSELVES. I understand the consequences of standing up and holding Walmart accountable. Walmart size should never matter when it comes to accountability.  I have paid the price over and over again.  I will continue to file with HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION whenever my rights are violated.  There is a path we must all choose.  My walk has brought me back home. I understand the meaning of I will cross that bridge when I get there.   SELMA is the reflection of TIME to look back and move FORWARD and to continue to Hope for Change.

Thanks For The Memory__WordPress.Com

I can’t believe this will be my 5th year at WordPress.com. My head had a totally different title for my anniversary story but the notification sent by WordPress is right on TIME. It kicks my story off perfectly and gives me hope that people do remember and they care. WordPress is a place where I could express myself and share knowledge.  Change is desperately needed to rethink how people in the world process their information differently.  An Inclusive Environment should be provided for people who are victimized and stigmatized. It has been the Supreme Court who has weakened and upheld laws discriminating against race, ethnicity, disability, gender, sexuality, religion, age and pay.  A very small light in the corner of my blog saying, “Happy Anniversary From WordPress.com” ignited a fuel.  I can feel my ears wiggling, my nostrils widening, and the passion running through my fingertips up into my brain. So now it can be written.

The clock was ticking and it was getting close to the new year. Finally, the bell tolled. Not one member of management got on the intercom to wish the associates a Happy New Year. Unbelievable! A member of management did get on the intercom to wish a support manager a Happy Birthday.  One person did matter.  Why? That is another story for another day.  I did get on the intercom to wish the associates and customers a Happy New Year. I am not considered a member of management but the enemy within.  I ask too many questions.  I just can’t follow Directives leading me to hell out of fear and retaliation. Directives that you never questioned no matter how wrong they are. It doesn’t matter if it cost them their job or their life.  Hell, I thought I had bigger fish to fry just surviving my adversities. My adversities are life threatening so I have a tendency to lean toward and respect the core belief of my tattered body. This respect puts me in a no fear zone of Walmart. It is a shame when management cannot wish you well for another single year. You will be lucky to get wished well for one day at Walmart.  Bottom line, if the D… disease did not kill me why should I let Walmart.

Coming into the new year you want to bring the positive energy and positive people with you.  Leave the negative people and the negative energy behind. In front of my face on an index card is the words spoken by Senator Daniel Ken Inouye from Hawaii, “It Is Your Duty To Disobey An Unlawful Order.”  Another strong beacon of light, Elizabeth Warren Senator from Massachusetts,  has been very encouraging. I hope she throws her hat into the contender’s rings in 2016. She called out Citibank for nearly destroying the nation’s economy. To the Knights of The Round Table, Krystal Clear Ball and all of y’all from MSNBC it is no longer the Behemoth, Snuffleupagus or the Big Elephant in the room.What you didn’t know you know now.  It is WAL-MART.  Walmart size does not matter.   Walmart ranks third from the bottom in customer service compared to 60 out of 100 stores. I think K-Mart came in last.

Walmart’s Core Belief is rotten to the core. I prefer Honey Crisp apples. If the core of my large juicy apple is rotten the size of my apple doesn’t matter. It was rotten.  There is absolutely no respect for the individuals. One of Walmart’s three basic belief shot down.  The mantra of Walmart is “No Excuses.”  Walmart makes all types of excuses for NOT providing the necessary means for the associates and management to do an effective job. It is called Accommodations. How can Walmart hold the associates or management ACCOUNTABLE to do their job when Walmart failed to provide the associates and management with the necessary tools?  Walmart did not meet the expectation of hiring individuals to run the store effectively throughout the year and the years before.  Task management is a disaster because there are not enough people hired to do the task. The back room is unremarkable. We have a store manager, Randall Addison who wants full control over that which he has not provided. Randall Addison thinks it is all the associates/management fault. Everyone works too slow. Forget about the fact Randall Addison did not hire enough people. Excuse me,  the blame will be placed at Corporates feet.

One of Walmart’s many excuses for not hiring applicants because they could not pass their drug test screening.  Can the associates/management inside the store past their 3-D screening?   This would consist of Drugs, Drinking, and Depression.  Walmart has stepped up the program by enlisting the 4th D which is purely Denial. Denial of associates vacations. Denial of letting the associates keep their overtime. Denial of the right to pay associates for half their shift when they come to work and told they are no longer needed. Denial of the right to pay associates the higher pay level when they work out of their area. These are protected rights. (Ex.-cashiers are level 3. If the cashier is constantly placed in Electronics they should be paid for the higher position which is electronics level 5. The Department Manager position is a level 7. Denial to pay the day and mid-shift overnight differential when associates work overnight. Good old fashion Denial and lawbreakers. Please, associates, read your CBLs and don’t just click on the box.

It takes a lot to come into a job and clock on as an associate or a salaried member of management knowing no matter what you do it will Never be good enough or meet Randall Addison expectation. A man whose expectation is so unrealistic it cost his demise at store #1802 in Topeka Kansas only to be recycled to #2857 to destroy the associates and management who has failed to take a stand. Why? Pure fear of retaliation, intimidation, discrimination and the constant unnecessary surveillance. I guess this is HR solution for fixing the problem. The harassment,  surveillance, retaliation, coercion/force, and the most negative hostile environment is pervasive. Negative campaigns are used as a top strategy to get associates to turn on each other and later be fired.  A major strategy used is coaching to lock employees and management inside of the store so they can’t transfer. So here you have a manager town hall/ousted from one store and brought total RETRIBUTION upon store #2857 for his FAILURE. HR did not take responsibility to have this man ousted from the company. They knew of his track record but Randall Addison kept his job. Why?  Which one of his cronies gave Addison the Tap On The Shoulders. Cronyism at its finest.

Were the customers served? That would be a big fat NO. The second basic belief of Walmart is services to the customers. It was not met and the second belief shot down.  A hiring freeze was put on when folks needed the jobs and extra cash.  It is the Scrooge effect.  No more overtime was allowed.  If any of the associates didn’t cut their overtime they would be given a personal discussion. If the associate’s name showed up too many Times in the pool of overtime it ends up as a coaching.  Escaping to another store is out for a year.  It gives Walmart more Time to coach you for failure and you are now out the door. Coaching for failure and not for success is not striving for excellence. The 3rd belief shot down. Strange, Walmart was asking people to come in and work because Walmart needed the help.  The consequences rest on the heads of the people who needed the money to help their families and friends.  I can hear Janet Jackson singing, “What Have You Done For Me Lately.”  How can the associates serve the people when Walmart does not invest in its associates? Walmart failed to meet the customer’s needs. Who put Walmart on the map? Exactly!

Missouri is a No-Fault State.  So Walmart can never be at fault and can make up anything on their associates.  Countless of Times Walmart has been rewarded for their Intentional Behavior. Walmart receives the Rolex Watch Award.  Walmart’s No-Fault Attitudes, No Accountability, and No Consequences has landed them in the Hall Of Shame.  The Supreme Court upheld Walmart in their class action lawsuit  (WALMART vs DUKE) weakening the laws of Title Vll of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. When this law was amended in 1991  The Roberts Courts shifted the balance of power and another tool was stripped away from women. The gap of sex discrimination began to narrow and Women rights to fair and equal wages are at risk of becoming non-existing.  The Roberts Court is the new strippers and pole dancers in town.   On many occasions, the Roberts Court ruled in favor of many landmark cases against women.  The Hand That Rocks The Cradle has taken control.  More power has been given to Big Banks and other corporations. This has left the Everyday People (a song written by Sly and the Family Stone) and Ordinary People (a song written by John Legend) out in the cold.  The weather outside is frightful and baby it is cold outside. I hope Sir Michael Steele of the Roundtable, also an analyst for MSNBC, understand how people get those Rolex watches. How About That, Charles Ellison?  Too much power is given and the person wants to show off their bling.  Who get’s busted every time after the photo-shoot? Exactly! Why is Clarence Thomas on any of these cases in regard to Women’s Rights?

Thanks once again WordPress for unplugging my memory.  I had to think of a very long word to connect the dots to CEO Doug McMillon on his YOUTUBE debate with an associate who was given a Tap On The Shoulders. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious is a no-nonsense word meaning fantastic or approval. The associate’s name was IWALANI JANANN MUIFA OPUPELE PSZYK.  I guess this was Doug McMillon initiation day to demonstrate how an associate of 2 years of Walmart could advance by the Tap on the shoulders. It is Time to sing Smiling Faces by Undisputed Truth.  Look at all the people who have been standing in lines for years. This was not fantastic nor did I approve.  Doug McMillon demonstrated how Walmart can make up the rules as they go.  All that power shifted to into the hands of Walmart by the Supreme Court. Has Walmart followed the laws? Is Walmart honest and fair? Hasn’t it been proven that Walmart has manipulated, misrepresented, abused and concealed information?   It was proven by a law firm hired by Walmart 6 years before Walmart vs Duke that men were 5 and half times as likely to be elevated to higher paid positions than women. Blatant discrimination but Walmart carried on their practices. How many Times has Walmart acted unethically? How many Times has Walmart asked an associated to do something unethical?  Walmart has violated every one of their ethical rules. Walmart can terminate an associate at any Time for no reason at all. There are many associates fired for Wrongful Termination. How ethical is that? The Store Manager and the 2 co-managers have earned their ROLEX WATCHES 3 Fold.

Jenny and Gabe, I am sorry you are no longer with the company. You were forced out and quit because you could no longer take the retaliation, discrimination, and the hostile environment. Forced out and wrongful termination is covered under constructive discharge. Brenda A., Russ, Beverly and the many associates who were also forced out of their jobs I really miss you. Exceptional Employees!   Randall Addison, Therese Renzetti, and Ben Abbatte complete the 3 basic beliefs of Wal-mart I don’t Trust or believe in. There are legal standards for establishing constructive discharge.  Employment with Walmart is on an at-will basis and you are free to resign at any time or for no reason unless you are FORCED OUT by an improper act of the company. Take a look at Constructive Discharge under the law. Don’t go quitting your job. Hang tough because it can get rough.  This has always bothered me. People who are hired as Temps and fired before, after, and even on their 90 days can be rehired by Walmart in 90 days avoiding the company from paying unemployment benefits. Hmmm! What happens when they are fired a second time and cannot be rehired.  It is Walmart and it is long overdue for the call out. Time for the old luggage to be dropped off and start fresh for 2015.  Sam Walton said you do not need to leave your store to start a new career. So if you left what was the reason. WHY?  Seek out an Employment Attorney for some down home good advice.  Thanks For The Memory__WordPress.com.

How About That!

That’s not right! You are so wrong. Are we there yet? Let’s Roll! What do you Think? Can you believe that? Shut Up! I’m cool with that. Check this out. DUDE! It is MIGHTY MANTRA TIME. Why are you staring at me? It’s okay for you to repeat yourself and be ever so cool. When I start repeating myself it becomes a problem. What! I see how you are.  So if you are on the opposite end of the spectrum, mainstream, or the normal who really ain’t normal at all, your words become buzzwords and catchy phrases. Don’t give me that SH…. about a slogan. Slogan This! Now there’s a catchy phrase. 🙂 I could have added an extra word after Slogan This but I promise to stay on track, focus, hold my concentration, or even meditate to keep from going off the deep end. How About That!

Why in the world if you are on FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART your buzzword turns into a big psychiatric disorder?  You find yourself on the DSM5 as a characteristic that needs to be medicated.  Shut Up!  People diagnosed with NLD repeat themselves and they have a CHANT or MANTRA.  So you think our words are meaningless. By now you know words can cause a WAR. Not understanding the person whose mouth it comes from makes another person feel the words have gone too far.  The OPPOSITE END OF THE SPECTRUM is chewing on their tongue. They think anybody that is not on their friend’s list and not trending today is permanently locked away in the film, One Who Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. Jack did escape.  So did Anjelica Huston out of a Rocky Horror Picture Show love affair.  Did you receive your oscar?  The FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART brought the curtain down with taking home a slew of academy awards.

Who said people who are diagnosed with NLD SYNDROME do not possess creativity?  It just takes TIME like a bottle of wine to savor the flavor with extra labor. Creativity will arrive on the scene. Development may take a little longer but can you see what TIME brings.  Repeat yourself too much and you will end up under the UMBRELLA. Sad to say you and your speech will be viewed as not stronger.  RHIANA’s song did have that ECHO of UM-BREL-LA LA LA LA.  For some people, Rhianna’s song may have been meaningless.  Start repeating yourself and you are viewed as DELAYED.  Strange how one person can be a sultry singer.  The other person will fall on the AUTISM SPECTRUM with echolalia and judge as low-grade.

Politicians use SOUND BITES to manipulate and give misleading information, to sum up, the real meaning of the conversation. Politicians shadow box all the TIME. Those SOUND BITES are repeated over and over again.  A person who is ECHOLALIA sounds like repeated SOUND BITES. The validity of their speech is misrepresented because they are parroting another person speech who may be very misleading and manipulative. Oh, GOD! SCRIPTED is even worse. Before you say anything look at the verse. The rehearsed verse makes ones terse. It sort of like plagiarism in vocal reverse. That would surely make me curse. How About That!

Look across the field at all the different shirts made up of slogans out of hurt and pain. Continue to march and work on your PEACE because there is so much to be gained.   The unrest of gun violence ran rapidly throughout our nation. Police turning their backs on Mayor Bill de Blasio attempted to taint the movement of  “Hands Up Don’t Shoot” and the “I Can’t Breath” conversation. Stay on your path and give recognition to your manta/chant/slogan/buzzword indeed.  Indoctrination of police protection has to be weeded and re-seeded. Plow out the old and sow in the new.   Trust between the police, the people and their communities will take the removal of police brutality, removal of blood from all hands and removal of gunpowder residue.  From the Opposite End Of The Spectrum to the Flip Side Of The Chart it is Time to put our heads together and let’s get smart.   We must all do our fair share.  Let’s not react to negative situations on race, gun violence, and address mental illness to educate our nation to show we care. Start the Conversation. How About That!

I am cool with the mantra. It means on the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART we are being repetitive and mimicking the words and behaviors of people who we think have legitimate speech that might be meaningful and it won’t get our A… in trouble. Guess what!  We discovered the words and behavior of the so-called politically correct aren’t correct at all and is worthless as hell.  Such doubled standards!  The not so opportunity has struck and we are knee-deep in trouble. The OPPOSITE END OF THE SPECTRUM have high-profile jobs and get the opportunity to spit out their venomous mantras every day.  While the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART is labeled with pervasive developmental delays, locked up and the keys are thrown away. How About That!

We all seek help so our words may be repetitive. It is neither black or white or trying to be competitive. Standing at the crossroad where there is a great division. Our nation must find a way to prevent the Precision On Collision.  Turning one’s back fuels the flames of  NO MERCY. Showing disrespect lies in the lap of police controversy.  The echoes are the cries of the ones we mourn and wipe tears from our eyes.  The police disrespect demonstrates the frustration, anger, and the possibility of a decision someone else might die.  Repeat the mantra. It doesn’t matter what side of the universe you represent. Who cares if you are called crazy as long as we can diminish the murders and show the progress of less violence by a huge dent.  We have witnessed every race coming together to repeat the words and action for PEACE. Stop the violence and the murdering it is TIME for all to cease. How About That!

Dedicated to Bill de Blasio: Facing Forward! Moving Forward!

Precision On Collision

It happened countless of Times. The door opens up and it is Time for the routine walk. You both make eye contact and the words are spoken. “I will stay on my path and I will be extra careful.” Of course, your son or daughter will do exactly what they set out to do.  Who are you worried about? You are worried about their life and the skin they are in. Whether or not if your child has a diagnosis of any type of syndrome/disorder it will always be Secondary.  This wasn’t for me but for you. All I could think of if the dots were being connected and the pieces of the puzzle were beginning to fit together. Will we get a whole puzzle? Will some of the pieces come up missing and the story will never be told correctly.

Wow! Mark Zuckerberg got up and put on his sweats and hoodie but he probably didn’t get stopped by the cops for looking suspicious. I had to make sure my son was not wearing a hoodie but there was no guarantee he would make it back home in one piece. He was not dressed to impress but for safety.  Guess what?  Is there such a thing as safety?   Throughout my child’s life, he suffered from asthma and the medication he had taken made it hard for him to lose weight. I don’t know if Mark was sleek all of his life. Mark was socially awkward but it never stopped him from reaching his full potentials. I bet Mark’s hoodies became more of a popular dress code than a non-verbal threat to his community.  It is a shame how the coin is so unpolished on the Flip Side Of The Chart.

There is something about a young black overweight male that is perceived as a gentle giant, a bully, or a huge Mandinka slave.  How did anyone derive from this perception? When my son was in middle school I noticed whenever he would become frustrated the teacher’s documentation read like a horror story. Not only that my son began to look more grown up on paper than his actual age. Something was really wrong with this picture. How can you be only in middle school but look like a full-size adult on paper?  Even at the manifestation hearings, I had to remind the superintendent, the principal, and the teachers my son was a child, not an adult. Was the school system documenting my child for the prison system or for an early grave?  Did the test scores of the schools and their triple-A rating mean more to them than the child? It must have meant something.  So much pressure was put on testing the school districts got busted for cheating nationwide. Many children fell through the cracks when it came to their mental stability. Who was going to be the first draft pick? It sure wasn’t going to be the children whom the school districts stigmatized for many years entering the small yellow bus with Special Education written all over it. Where in the hell does this concept come from when your child acted out he would immediately be thrown in a separate self-contained school better known as the DAY SCHOOL? Parents stay on top of your child’s documentation.

This is probably the hardest stories I have ever written. Knowing for years what the outcome was going to be before the barrage of murders had taken place.  Going from doctor to doctor and the doctors not addressing the race issue. Moving within your family and they didn’t want to address mental illness. Being Black an under attack spelled it in the story Got No Time To be Disabled. My son said it best. “They Can Kill Us With Impunity.” NLD will always be Secondary. Just as he was diagnosed with NLD, panic, anxiety, stress, and depression is Secondary to the original diagnosis of NLD.  This is not an NLD’s world. Inclusiveness instead of isolation is the key.   Having a diagnosis of NLD does not define the person he is.  He has to live in the skin that he is in.  Being Black is not a disability. He now understands he cannot exist inside a group’s thread but has to live with the reality of being Black.   Those prayers were just not for my son.  Knowing the Truth is tough. The Truth rides alongside consequences. The conversation has always existed and the doors of the church will always be open for change.

The sharpness of my son’s tongue is Precision. It is always what he says make people so pissed off and angry. He does not recognize that he has insulted you are if a person thinks he sounds threatening.  There will always be Collision with people who do not want to hear or know the Truth. These are the people who act on their words. Not the ones who speak with a sharp tongue, Precision.  Collision will always turn their back, react, and attack.

Exercise For Life__PEACE

Are you still eating the leftovers from Thanksgiving? Are you full up to your neck? I bet that conversation around the Gobble Gobble table got pretty intense. Here we go! You haven’t seen some of your Outlaws for years.  Now you know WHY.  Wow! You mean to tell me you had to sit at the table and have a grateful Thanksgiving dinner with UNGRATEFUL A… people. They never contribute to the dinner except for criticism. This is the same crew if a family member dies they got all of these, “If I Were You” but they never want to contribute to the cause. All that tension builds up over the years and when a real volatile situation occurs what happens. You go out and release the Beast instead of initiating PEACE. Sooo here’s a Brain exercise to help you lose some of the UNGRATEFUL LUGGAGE you have toted around for years. Stop saying PEACE OUT. Start saying PEACE IN. In order to initiate PEACE, you learn to control the Beast within. Deport the people out of your life that doesn’t supply you with constructive criticism or explicit advice. DEPORTATION ANYONE!

So today on this Cyber Monday and many more Mondays to come we will begin our new exercise of ringing out the OLD and bringing in the NEW. Run and get your paper. Make sure you have a good pen or pencil so we don’t run out of lead or ink and become frustrated. Sometimes it is the little things like this that can break your train of thought. Sure the conclusion of your story is about to go south.   Are you ready?  What we are about to do is take the word PEACE and make an acronym to give some of our viewers the CONCRETE INFORMATION needed to help them build on their life skills of PEACE. Here we go!

P-Purpose: I am on a mission Baby! What is your Plan? If it is about FERGUSON, Justification is where we stand. (Raison D’ etre)

E-Excuses are not allowed for the Execution of a young black man.

A-Abolish the laws that do not exonerate the innocent and the deceased.

C-Complex information/abstract English left several persons to their own devices to figure it out which rendered a major defeat.

E-Examining a volatile crisis can very easily IGNITE the Beast and EXTINGUISH THE PEACE.

What does your PEACE represent? Once you spell it out you can exercise those words into your life and practice new life skills.  Over on the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART, we process our information differently.  Some of us need a jumpstart to get us going in the right direction. A PICTURE IS NOT WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS especially if you do not have the rights words and the wrong information is given. This is WHY we get all the social rejection. We don’t get the picture especially not the WHOLE PICTURE.  Where In The World Is Carmen San Diego?  Where Is Waldo? I Spy. What are we looking for? Is there too much clutter to see what the PICTURE represent.  What happens when you cannot follow direction? Who is Carmen?  Who is Waldo? Who really is Michael Brown?  What happens when a person is left to their own devices. Can you draw the right CONCLUSION if it is not laid out CONCRETELY and EXPLICITLY?  What the opposite end of the spectrum did was INTENTIONAL and now we have FERGUSON. Did the Grand Jury get the right PICTURE?  Who does the Grand Jury Resemble?  Who IGNITED the Beast and EXTINGUISHED FERGUSON PEACE?

On the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART, we do not wish to be EXCLUDED.  It is hard to get the WHOLE PICTURE.  More power to you if you got a thousand words out of your PICTURE. Look what can happen to the PICTURE when you are misled. You will not see EYE TO EYE. When you look through your lens and view your PICTURE.  It takes a person’s life experience, exploring their environment, and developing friends/relationship.  Did we encounter a totally different PICTURE which affected our Decision Making Process?  It is the way one learns that will help a person not just retain information but help them understand the outcome or consequence of the situation. Wrong Words=Wrong Actions causes major INFRACTIONS. Refresh your memory and see what is the major struggle with people who are diagnosed with NLD (Nonverbal Learning Disability).

It just took one more thing after that TURKEY DINNER to take the E out of PEACE and made us EXPLODE.

Continue to build on PEACE.

P-Participate, Productivity, Positive, Power, Passion

A-Acceptance, Accommodate, Advocate, Accomplish, Advise

C-Champion, Challenge, Conversation, Communicate, Change

This is my Cyber Monday life skill lesson for today.

UnDisputed Truth__KCMO A…

To all my listeners, the music in the background is by Undisputed Truth.  The Song rolling off your tongue is Smiling Faces Sometimes. Sho you’re right! Check out the hands. Beware of the handshake that hides the snake.  Smiling Faces tell lies and pretend to be your friend. Beware of the Pat On The Back. It might just hold you back.  Sometimes people who are unworthy of the Pat On The Back already know the deck of promotions is stacked.  Hanging out at the studio today is a Brother who threw down and gave you a big 911 Alert in the first paragraph of his Article, The Walmart You Don’t Know, Charlie Fishman.  Whew! Marking it Up with a BIG YELLOW PEN caught my lens. Yes, IN-DEEDY! This song is dedicated to all the folks who are too D. Greedy and has lost respect for the middle class,  the poor/jobless and NEEDY. Before I get into my Low Down Dirty Shame conversation with Charlie Fry, who is Fast and always in the presence of good Company, let me send a special SHOUT OUT to Sir Lawrence Knight of The Round Table.  Sir Lawrence is chowing down on some KCMO barbecue while on his break.  Sir Lawrence gives one hell of a REWRITE and this Brother is not fake.   Hold up! We will take five so I can go get Sir Lawrence a brew. Taking you downtown live in the studio with Kickin’ Mo A.., the Gate Sweeper, located at 1600 New Constitution Avenue. Rufus, the band playing behind Chaka Khan, is working her golden vocals inviting you to STOP ON BY.

It has been a while since I seen my buddy Charlie Fishman. Charlie got some PIPELINE answers.   This article will shine the light on some unanswered questions for one of The Knights Of The Round Table.  SIR ED A LOT wants to know if anyone is advising the POTUS on the KEY issue of Lets Go Get STONE PIPELINE.  Joe Cocker, the man singing Let’s Go Get Stone, would probably agree anybody playing Let’s Make A Deal has more than their share of drinks.  Bain and Co. were in boot camp trying to learn how to deal with the Smiling Faces.  SIR ED A LOT ears have perked up. I can hear SIR ED A LOT saying, “Naw! The company whose boss thinks that Corporation Are People.” My thought if Corporation were people you would think a corporation could sue for being taken out of the box for being an old company. How many OLD COMPANIES has Wal-Mart taken down? How many OLD PEOPLE have Wal-Mart taken down inside the company? I know OLD PEOPLE can file AGE DISCRIMINATION.  That is why I like the song SMILING FACES.  Smiling Faces tells lies and don’t tell the TRUTH. Smiling Faces tell lies and I got PROOF.  This song goes on to say your enemies can’t do you no harm.  When you know where they are coming from. Don’t let the HANDSHAKE or the SMILE FOOL YA! Take UnDisputed Truth advice because they are only trying to SCHOOL YA!  A dangerous hit from 1971 calling out the brothers who are burning up the AARP cards of today.

Can a CORPORATION/COMPANY file AGE DISCRIMINATION? Since CORPORATIONS are people stated by the BAIN BUSTER himself. Let me see if I got this right. Vlassic was a classic who got their A.. kicked for the price of 15 minutes of fame. Consequences were high on their bailout which was the name of the game.   Vlasic took a beating and was put to shame.  Lovable Bras, a company since 1926,  got reduced to an A cup. That was pretty D.. vicious.  Wouldn’t you say to PULVERIZE a company with  88 years of longevity is pretty D.. malicious?   Levi Strauss was no longer the boss.  Hooking up with Smiling Faces got them tossed.  The quality of their merchandise will go down in history as low-cost. The honeymoon was over and 75 years of dignity lost.   A company well rooted since 1887 got involved with BIG SMILEY and landed in bankrupt heaven. Huffy got stuffy and the bicycles got served.   Do you think The SQUEEZE was layered on and Huffy got what they deserved?  It’s a crime Huffy is singing Prince song, 1999.  HUFFY’s last bike manufactured in this country was at that time.   Who is next on the block to get KNOCKED OUT. What! You mean to tell me another company who is 75 years old whose product works without a doubt. Shut Up! I’m shocked it is MASTER LOCK. Carolina Mills was rocking a deal. Another 75-year-old company BIG SMILEY thought was over the hills.  Dial does a lot of business with Wal-Mart.   Dial will lose their smile and realize it may not have been smart.  Losing  28%  of business could break Dial’s heart.   Is it just me or can you see?  SNUFFLEUPAGUS SMILEY BABY is knocking off all the COMPANIES and ASSOCIATES flashing AARP. Hey, I thought you said these were the MOM and POP stores being taken down by BIG SMILEY MART.  These are serious BIG OLD COMPANIES. Can I have SIR KORNACKI and SIR CHRIS H. help me out on all the BIG COMPANIES taken down and left with frowns?

I have a special request coming in from MO-EISHA aka LIL MOMO. Girlfriend said she has waited up all night for JARON to come home. JARON stepped through the door and she took one look into his eyes and it was all over. LIL MO MO ran into the bedroom and gathered up JARON’s clothing and next she was the star of WAITING TO EXHALE. You think LIL MO MO cared about going to jail.  She ran outside and threw his clothes on the ground and transformed into Madame Torch. Girlfriend was ready to KICK MO A.. all the way through March.  JARON broke for the door and you can finish the story with GONE WITH THE WIND.  He left his wallet, his iPad, and the rest of his gin. LIL MO MO sat on the couch and pulled out her bottle of Champaign. JARON is the BROTHER who must be totally insane.   She is the Queen of her Castle without the hassle.  LIL MOMO, a lot of people can relate to this song.   Especially when love goes South and the Brother is dead wrong.  You heard it first live.  Kickin Mo A..,  you are hanging out with the Gate Sweeper at 1600 New Constitution Avenue to the sound of BACK STABBERS by the OJAYS. They smile in your face all they want to do is take your place, “The BACKSTABBERS.”

The TRUTH is in the EYES and the EYES don’t LIE. Yes, we are down to jealousy, misery, envy and you can’t see behind Smiling Faces.  Look what happens to people who can’t read facial expression. My friends on the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART really become frustrated. The manifestation of one’s behavior breaks into the song and dance mode of I Feel Like Busting Loose.  Jump on board and ride the tracks with Chuck Brown and the Soul Searchers.  Expressions are deceitful,  emotions are displayed, and cannot be identified by people on the opposite end of the spectrum.  Guess what?  Take it to the bridge but don’t jump off. Go ahead and get into the grind and bust loose.

Charlie Baby Fry has captured the Smile turned upside and the little man backed into the corner.  The Wally is bouncing off the walls and putting a SQUEEZE on the Vendors. Little Man is about to get PULVERIZED.  Charlie gets the REWRITE of today and the Last Word. BABY! On the opposite end the of the spectrum the words are Rolled Back and Clearance out the door. Sho Your Right!  The companies and the vendors are tight-lipped. The associates are tired of being shoved around from place to place. Forget about the tight lips.  Transfers to other stores are at record high.  The Associates, especially the ones 40 plus, get it.  There can only be so many age of 40 plus associates offered maintenance or door greeters.  It is getting very crowded at the door.   The Vlassic jar of pickles has moved from the shelf and have heard this song and dance before.  Who will be left to pull off BLACK FRIDAY?  It’s quite difficult to redesign oneself or re-invent the pickle when you are limited to products.  Yes, aging is pure vinegar on the body if one does not age gracefully.  For D.. sure I will not look like Joan Rivers at the age of 81. This was Joan’s quality of life and it worked for her. R.I.P.

Keeping the customers focus on quality and not quantity will reduce a company down in size. If you take the customers over to the medical side of the chart it will change their mind about bigger is better. What the customer will find there will not be a BIG OPERATION, either way. The risk is too great. The least invasive procedure first.  Last but not least the most aggressive procedure.  BIG SMILEY hands are no longer invisible. The most aggressive procedure has taken shape.  Flour has gotten on Wal-Mart’s  hands to reveal who has helped accelerate the loss of American Jobs to low wage countries.  Who has kept low wages within their company to reduce the quality of life of the people? Quality outranks Quantity any day. I will take you over to the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART and show you no person in this zip code wants to be set up for FAILURE.  No one in this zip code would INTENTIONALLY demean, demoralize, ruin another person life by reducing a person to a job level just to force them out of the company.  I presumed resignations and retirement are voluntary. We will go to break and put Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On and make sure you have proof you are not being deceived by your Company. Taking it to the streets with the Transformers and breaking it down with the beats of the DECEPTICONS. Live at 1600 New Constitution Avenue,  Kickin Mo A…The Gate Sweeper.

Charlie Baby Fry Fishman did I get it right.

Sure, different technique, crazy style but it works.
