THEJNSREPORT’S: NYC Subway Scene End of 2014
Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: Knee Defender: The Next Great Invention!!
Recently while perusing Twitter I came across the story of a fight on a flight that had to be diverted due to two passengers arguing over the ability and/or right to recline an airline seat.
Apparently a man was sitting in economy plus and in the middle seat (nuff said). Knowing how uncomfortable flying coach can be this man bought an ingenious invention the “Knee Defender” a device that prevents a seat from reclining backwards into one’s knees.
The woman sitting in front of him tried repeatedly to recline her seat unsuccessfully into his knees. When she realized it was because of his device and he wouldn’t remove his protection, she and the man exchanged words.
The result ended up being her throwing a cup of water in his face and the continued argument causing the flight to be diverted from its original flight path to Chicago where both were removed from the plane.
Personally when I read this story I felt for the guy and agreed he should be able to use the Knee Defender. I’m sure most of us have been there where the stress of travelling and annoying kids/adults gets to you. The last thing one needs is to have what little personal space there is encroached upon by someone else.
Before the Knee Defender one had to resort to the use of the knees to prevent the unwanted recline or the occasionally kick to the back of the chair to let the person in front know, NO! I like my knees. Now (In the voice of those late night infomercials) introducing the Knee Defender.
Who Are We… America?
Who are we as people, human beings, and citizens within the supposedly wealthiest nation on earth? Are we in fact living within modern day Babylon? Are we in fact living in the hellish prison system sectors where an ordinary citizen can have his/her life taken from them for no “real” or “legitimate” reason (In BROAD DAY LIGHT) right in front of all of us by those sworn to protect and serve us?
Are we worthless grotesque creatures loathe of respect and dignity? No we are not. We are people, we are human beings, we have minds, souls, bodies, and the ability to create and live to do wonderous things.
Yet there is this constant battle going on within each of us. To know truth and lies, to know good from evil, and to that end live our lives with a basic tenet God told us to live by which is to love your neighbor as you love yourself. How simple is that?
We are doomed as people to destroy ourselves when we ignore that basic principal. Killing breeds more killing. Retribution is every bit a part of human nature as any other emotion we experience and/or endure.
I’ve heard the typical view point whenever a black man is killed by police that somehow they brought it upon themselves. In no universe I know of would it or could it ever be conceivable that killing an unarmed human-being supposedly for past business transactions is justification for harassment and murder.
What were his misdemeanors for? Selling wait for it wait for it… “Untaxed cigarettes”. Are you f&*%Kn kidding me? Real bad guys are getting away with every crime under the law, hiding behind the blue wall, fully armed with guns & badges. The criminals even higher up the food chain wear $2000, $5000 suits and sell a hell of a lot more than “untaxed” cigarettes.
The fact of the matter is the cowards that killed and assisted in the killing of Eric Garner including that trifling & heinous actress calling herself an EMT and her cronies all need to be fired, stripped of their shields & guns and tried for this man’s murder.
The female EMT knew Eric Garner was dead. She I’m sure, if we were to check her credentials to be a licensed EMT must know how to properly check for the carotid artery. She would know how to check breathing not rubber neck a yeah he’s breathing. Her hand placement to check his pulse was casual and careless at best. And those cops huddled over his lifeless body propping him on his side, and nudging him to make it appear as if he’s still moving didn’t (nor could they)fool me for a second.
Eric Garner did nothing to warrant what happened to him and plead his case. He didn’t resist the police. And why is it they always need about 10 to 20 cops for one black man? That’s what cowards do (get together and literally) “gang” up on people they feel they are better than or more powerful than.
Eric Garner chose to stand up as a man for himself, demanded respect and to be left alone. What he got was murdered for his decision. What will we the people his people do now?
Are we willing to cower and let the police continue to get away with slaps on the wrists, desk duties, and eventual promotions for their evil? I pray to God that we are not.
R.I.P Eric Garner and the many other strong black men we’ve continually lost to the murderous methods and ways of the “police”.
We have a right to be here…ALL of us human beings!
Welcome to the JnSReport’s: See~Saw Satisfaction
My deep desire is to be one of those who propel positive progress from people in general. I feel the best way to achieve genuine satisfaction is to live life as a seesaw giving and receiving. I want to address the basic aspects of life in regards to interactions with nature, the environment, animals as well as fellow human beings. I yearn to better become the protege of those ground-breakers of the past and the positive influence infusers of the present.
Once one’s living space is secured- meaning properly maintained without interfering with neighboring animals or surrounding environment; one can then focus on self-discovery as well as self exploration as to the best ways to utilize their found skills and talents.
Hopefully at this stage in one’s life journey, one will realize and appreciate the fact that the individual is just one very important part of the whole masterpiece that is life. Humans cannot live as one sole being; they should positively give and take just as we breathe. We should at least try to give as much positive influence to the world as we benefit from on a daily basis. Everything in existence has no choice but to follow this bold fact. Since everything we do effects the whole package, we should put forth sincere effort in our intentions and their effects, as much as we expect to receive.
I truly believe that if we would just accept this truth and focus on securing the best tactics to utilize our God-given gifts within our part of the masterpiece of life, we would achieve happiness- the epitome of satisfaction due to positive progress. Think of it; honing our talents throughout all their ranges in an efficient manner, towards contributing to the positive maintenance of the world as a whole.
The problem with my romantic findings is the reality of living in a world that constantly insists on securing the absoluteness of a Monopoly focused life condition. There are those that sadly choose to be afraid to discover, explore and hone their personal provisions or worse yet, wrongfully use them for the sole purpose of self-indulgence.
Such selfish beings either believe they are the only ones on earth entitled to all possible gratification on the planet or they focus all their efforts towards others in some warped way of self-pleasuring vicariously through the satisfaction of those previously described. Just as in the famous lyrics of the Eurytmics’ timeless hit Sweet Dreams, “Everybody’s looking for something… Some of them want to use you; some of them want to be used by you!”
These same selfish beings constantly try to squash all those in their path with their greed. They go to such extremes to monopolize all the best aspects of life. They hoard the highest levels of every element of existence for themselves and still cannot nullify the simple truth that they cannot totally advance alone. They still need the financial underlings to feed and maintain their wealth.
These same beings could use their earthly fortunes to totally eradicate the vast majority of the world’s issues if not all! The few cannot both rule and run the entire earth; just as humans cannot survive on our own without nature. We must share, even if it is only a small amount compared to the whole, contributions with all other life forms we exist amongst. If more people thought to help heal, I feel they would in some way or other create the means to best enhance their well-being overall, that of the: mind, body, soul & spirit.
One of the best film examples of my theory is Looper, emphasizing how we all do & can play either a positive or negative role in life for most if not all. We should stray from living as “we’re gonna die young” but as we’re going to live long & strong. In a perfect world you’d get what you deserve right as you earned it in both respects. The good get blessings and the bad get retribution.
What we who know better must do, is stay confident that our race is not in vain even though it so clearly seems so. Being selfish will only afford counterfeit gratification; for “all that glitters is not gold”, rather greed’s shallow needs leads to hollow and thereby lonely ends.
At least try to do what’s right knowing karma no matter how delayed, is real. Thanks for reading and thereby allowing me to vent my feelings about the sad state of the human condition.
God Bless especially when the world’s evil dares to test!
Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: The Selfish
Recently while thinking on the subject of selfishness I decided to try and document some still images of plain old selfishness to show how selfish we as human beings can be towards one another let alone the world around us. Traveling around the city on the MTA affords many opportunities to capture “people at their best” as I like to call it. I jest in that last statement as clearly people at their best could never embody the following exhibits of selfish behavior.
Geez ya think someone would mind if I sat there?
Okay I’ll try somewhere else in the car. Let’s see what I find.
Why???! Explain why you have to have your legs that far open? These are microcosms of what goes on routinely.
Let’s move in the new year towards being unselfish and thinking of others. It will come back around.
How to know if you’re a maggot?
- You lack morales
- You lack manners
- You lack common sense
- You lack shame
- You don’t know how to behave appropriately
How to spot maggots?
How to know if you’re around a maggot ?
Tell-tale signs of a maggot:
- When the person can’t look you in the eye when shaking your hand!
- In the midst of a handshake if there is no power or substantive strength in the handshake of the other person – also known as “The Dead-fish” handshake or the “Limp-wrist”
- When the aforementioned two examples occur simultaneously the person is truly unequivocally one of the most dangerous maggots around. Beware of any dealings with them.
If you find that you fit any of the afore mentioned qualifications of maggotry then you need to immediately proceed to section……….
How to help maggots give up their maggot-ways?
- Show them the error of their ways
- Show them the benefits of having strong morales, never sell your soul for seemingly earthly pleasures
- Show them the benefits of common sense, be sure of your choices made the vast majority of the time
- Show them the benefits appropriate behavior, avoid looking & acting foolish
Depending on the severity of the maggotry being displayed, you need to strongly concentrate on one or more of the rectification number in the correction segment………
Maggot Correction Tactics:
Point out all presented examples of maggot behavior to guilty offenders
Tell offenders why they need to stop their Maggotry
Relate alternative decision making which led to said Maggotry
How to deal with a maggot(s)?
- Refuse to copy any of their behaviors
- Separate from them immediately where possible
- Avoid them as much as possible as far as one is able, ie direct physical confrontations unless that’s not possible.
The Magnitude of the Maggotry can be very overwhelming, indeed….
Here’s are some typical examples of being a Maggot:
- You borrow money from someone and don’t pay that money back even when you’re able and then claim “I’m not a bum!”
You’re a lazy bum bitch
- You take advantage of others
- You only care about yourself
- You’re loud and rude for no valid reason
- You lie so much you don’t even know when you’re lying to others
- You wait around hoping to ask someone for their hard earned money instead of getting a job
- You have a job and still ask for other people’s money
- You go out, try to hang out with people in bars and clubs and don’t have money to spend
There are many more examples of maggot behavior. In time we will uncover and discuss as many of them as we can while trying to give an alternative to what we uncover.
