The Miley Wrecking Ball


This is a guest post from The Urban Blabbermouth. Comments are welcome. Vol-E picked out the illustration because she don't like ugly!


Miley Cyrus has brought a wrecking ball to her reputation as an innocent and sweet girl.  She is now a sexy sensuous adult woman. No subtlety here. The media has made a fuss, which is what she had in mind.  Many have said that she was over-the-top promoting herself, but how else to quickly and quite sharply change the world's image of you?   To  her, I say, wow and well done.

Don't you wish that you could do the same?  Imagine that one morning, you get up and realize that your life has been the same for the last five years and worse, your life has now started to go in a direction that you do not want.  What to do? How to change it?  Can you get up one morning and decide to be different?  Can you get up and be a superhero from this day forth?  That is what Miley has done. She got up, changed her life and the world in one moment.  How full of envy and jealousy you must be.

So why don't you change?  You can see lots of chains holding you back. The chains have names like bills, children, friends and family.  They are all holding you in place.  The bills do not go away.  Of course they do, make a plan and pay them off...gone. Children, well that is tougher as they do require a home and love. You still need those for yourself so share with your children, but it does not have to be the home where you are now in your current neighborhood and state. Better yet, make a change and you will become a role model to your children on how one can live a life. Friends and family will either adapt to your change or stop speaking to you.  To be somewhat brutal, get some new ones if they stop speaking to you.  Anyway, once your current friends and family see the new you, they may like the new you so much better.  Your change will trigger changes in them.  The old you was probably helping to keep them chained in their place and they were not thanking you for it.

I make it sound so simple.  It is not, but there are always changes you can make.  Unlike Miley, it may take you many years to accomplish your change.  If it takes five years, then so be it.  You will still be here on earth in five years, so make changes and put yourself in a better place.

One more thing about Miley Cyrus's change: She chose to become a sexy sensuous adult woman.  Why that?  She could have changed from music to go on to become a medical doctor or to run for mayor with an eye towards becoming president.  Perhaps it is because of her sense of herself as a sexual adult woman.  She went into one of the more taboo places -- openly expressed female sexuality.  Maybe it is strong in her and she likes it and must live it.  I don't know, but I wonder how many women have this strong feeling and hide it away so as to appear chaste and demure while they are raging inside.  One only has to look at the popularity of the Fifty Shades of Gray books (I have not read them so I cannot say more) or all those nude selfies propagated on the internet to get a feeling that there is a strong and deep female sensual wave out there, bottled up.  Hmm, this has the makings of another post.

Miley is to be commended for shaking up her life, for shaking up our lives too, and for showing us how one may go about having an interesting and fulfilling life.  All this from a twenty-one year old.  Amazing.

Memoir - The Year of Kent State

by The Urban Blabbermouth
I wanted to write a fictional memoir and it got away from me. 

I was born in the Year of Kent State. I didn't know. I was watching a cable channel specializing in historical programs, in this case, newsworthy events from the 1970s. The Ohio National Guard shot 13 unarmed students protesting the Vietnam War on the Kent State University campus. Four students died. By the time I was aware of a bigger world than my own, Kent State passed into history.

Im gonna git u Sukkah

by The Urban Blabbermouth [who may or may not be shown in the photo above... - v-E] ~ True story. I am walking to my car and I notice a couple of Jewish fellows, twenty somethings, with the bouquets of what looks like bamboo or palm. I know they are Jewish for they look Hasidic. They are wearing long black jackets, wide brim black fedora hats, and have curly sideburns. In truth, I classify all Jewish who dress like this as Hasidic although they may identify themselves differently. They are standing near the corner canvassing passersby.

American Lottery

America elected a Black man as President of the Unites States. Twice!  Black people did not do this.  If all the black people voted for Barack Obama, he would only get 13 percent of the vote.  Throw in the Hispanics, the brown ones, not the white ones, and the vote would bloom to 21 percent. Not enough.  So it was the white Americans who elected Barack Obama. 

It is slowly becoming clearer why they would do that instead of electing the other white guy who ran against Barack Obama.  Obama stood for change.  His campaign slogan was "Change we can believe in" and "Yes We Can".  The white people wanted him to change America to bring back their good old days. 

There is a trend here starting with Barack Obama, the election of an improbable candidate, a black man, by white people in a unresolved racially divided America, who spoke of hope, change and an improved America ... to …
