Enough of Hatred
It is 2021 correct? Twenty one years into the 21st century and here we are dealing with more racism, hatred and hate crimes. Our fellow Asian men and women are being attacked with acts of violence that was influenced by the words of the last man who held the Oval Office from 2016-2020. Words have CONSEQUENCES! Making Asians be the scapegoats for the Covid-19 virus outbreak is bringing our society once again to the lowest common denominator of our being; that is, hate someone because someone tells you to do so and that blames someone for the trouble and strife in your nation.
The Dunning- Kruger Bolsonaro
When I first read about the Dunning- Kruger effect I stood days thinking about it. In a very condensed explanation, the Dunning-Kruger effect is a cognitive bias when people with low abilities overestimate themselves while those highly qualified can, sometimes, under estimate their abilities.
I dedicated a lot of time to put this together and when I released my harsh experiences of how I had been treated; my work was blindly censored. I sent my piece to several colleagues, friends and peers because I wanted a genuine reaction to my writing. It was described as raw and very honest. This piece was rejected several times and silencing a conversation. Blind censorship is like putting a bandaid over a bullet wound; so I apologize to readers if this article veers off in a way that pulls you from my experiences that I am sharing to the world so let others know that they are not alone.

Every Time Something Happens, Normal Changes Forever
Do you remember when a loved one was flying to your city for a visit? You would drive to the airport and wait at the gate when they stepped off the plane. If you spent much time in an airport, you saw those joyous reunions at almost every gate. My wife used to travel a lot and more often than not, I would be the first person she saw when she left the jetway.
WARNING ... Is the Internal Combustion Engine Polluting Our Air?
WARNING … Is the Internal Combustion Engine polluting our air? As a Technician that has been in the trade for many years, I know my engines. And this subject is quite concerning considering some industries are bragging, instead of an alternative going green replacement to that style of engine. They're going the same but bigger, and bigger is not better and this is my thinking.
Maybe you’ve never noticed this but racists don’t think they are racists. They think they are protecting and guarding their culture against everyone who they view as a threat to their institutions and traditions. They see themselves as the victims, and the Blacks, Muslims, Mexicans, Chinese, Jews, immigrants, Russians and aliens are plotting to overthrow society and destroy them.
World Crisis and the Need of Justice
Mirza Masroor Ahmad talked about expanding world crisis on the planet and the uplifted danger of another War.

The Royals Are About To Have A Long Overdue Reckoning On Race.

A Closer Look at the Homeless
The issue of homelessness in America has disturbed me for a very long time. I was not raised to become homeless, yet it happened to me anyway. I was shocked and scared each time. When you get evicted from your home, it feels like you're a chicken with your head cut off and you're running around with your last breathe of life trying to figure out if there is a way for you to survive. It's truly horrible. Not all, but most homeless people suffer from drug addiction or mental illness or both. There are a few who simply got in trouble with the law and can not achieve employment because of that. Whatever the reason, the problem of homelessness in America is still occurring and it still disturbs me.
Even before this pandemic hit, there were numerous struggling Americans. When the virus swept through the nation and closed down most states, it became even more difficult. Many people lost their jobs; others have dealt with losses in their families. It has become a heydey for strife and chaos. This comes after and exasperates a growing period of unrest in this nation.
