Elvis World: Desert Storm & The Priscilla Monolog

Give us this day September 2 Our Daily Elvis

1974, Elvis closed his tour. His new girlfriend Sheila Ryan in attendance – and Priscilla and Lisa Marie.

Elvis Presley peaked with the Aloha show in 1973.

1974 His Gladiator Film project went sideways. He wasn’t going to be able to pull himself into shape for a European Tour and the novelty of that would have worn off quickly.

Elvis on stage, once he converted his stage fright into his stage persona, transforming that energy – that audience support and connection.

The concert taken as a whole is rather energetic, the few points where Elvis shows his fans the man who was the performer is astonishing, but they were blown of our proportion to the entire show.

I was surprised to find fan shot film of Charlie Hodge flirting with Elvis during “Are you Lonesome Tonight” and I wonder if any sound or audio exists of him reading from the John O’Grady book and the paternity suit.

Pirate Corner: Elvis’ Greatest Shit! ~ featurette: The Beach Movies

Dear All regarding Kim Davis, et al

As a civil service employee you are required to serve the public.

The idea of “no shirt, no shoes, no service” is actually not even valid in the private sector, and has no place at all in the public service.

You are not entitled to treat neither the public nor your co-workers in a manner that is less than courteous and fulfill the duties that you are paid to perform – hand out licenses.

You are entitled and not at all prevented from, once you leave the office, on your own time, in your own vehicle and in your own home – say whatever you believe or thing. Rant and rail all you want about not being allowed to judge people at work.

And do remind yourself that your job titled is clerk – not judge, eh?

People who are religious actually need to be deemed to have a mental illness – this idea of being entitled to control the lives of strangers and being offended that other kinds of people exist is very last century.

  • acting equal doesn’t work; legislated equality doesn’t work
  • equality only works when people offer it without considering it
  • not when it has to be demanded or asserted, that is hat in hand still

as much as women complain about men not being fair; women will throw each other under the bus to get in good with a man

Feminists threw the lesbians who helped that movement under the bus..so’s long as het women act like being called a dyke or a lesbian is a bad thing

I really can’t get behind women’s issues or ethnicity issues or gender/sexuality or identity anymore; people need to get the fuck over themselves and just be a person and let other people be a person.

it’s this controlling the identity of others where the NEEDLESS social friction is, impeded social stability and contribution and marginalizing peoples…conservatives are the status quo to overcome and why they are the wrong side now and need to be made history

I no longer anthropomorphize homo sapiens
my concerns and issues are about global security and sustainability issues

but mostly, trying to know that I am actually communicating with people

I have run out of ways to say the sky is falling and the emperor has no clothes, eh

I’m not sure I agree with that. I do think, as Stern says, that Liberty Counsel made a grievous error in advising Davis to defy the court’s order. And God knows the firm is easy to mock.

(Its website features a statement by Davis that “to issue a marriage license which conflicts with God’s definition of marriage, with my name affixed to the certificate, would violate my conscience”—and beneath it, a request for a $25 donation in exchange for a book in which “two nationally-acclaimed real estate entrepreneurs share biblical principles to revolutionize your work and family life, and give you the courage to stand up for what is right.”)

But the stay application did a reasonable job of stringing together the Court’s loose rhetoric in Hobby Lobby to support the implausible contention that government officials have a religious right to refuse to serve people they disapprove of.

I went to college in the 1980s in Canada

it was the first decade where there was not a dress code and female students wore what they wore

and yes, by the 2010 decade there are now in Canada/USA more women at college than men; in fact, affirmative actions programs have been largely successful in many ways

there is a merit conflict that remains and people find new ways of bias

it is the Smart/Stupid divide and it is gender blind

The bigger issue is the disappearing women across the workplaces and they are at home dealing with elderly parents and teens; or being business start ups because of the psychopathy of the corporate world

every industry likes to bemoan their lack of diversity rather than actually correct that

they get less so in the workplace where diversity now means individuals

rather than clear groups

so that there is no more mainstream, everyone is their own personal sub-culture

it’s a way of coddling the advantaged and treating them on par with their social alternatives

facebook-gay-meme

in Web 1.0 I stumbled on a site that I thought was a comedy site, it was encouraging pregnant women to drive in HOV lanes in order to use traffic law to define fetus as persons.

Traffic Law is not the way to limit human rights and in actual fact, born children do not count for HOV purposes as they do not drive alone. It is a commuter perk for car sharing, not a heterosexual entitlement.

Nathan Poe observed that genuine extremism is not easily to tell apart from parody of it.

that should tell you everything about the sanity of religious people and why religion is mental illness – lack of humour.

we also need to realize that they mean what they say and they are confused when they are made fun of and not regarded as martyrs.

this idea that everyone is actually reasonable and good is just not supported by history or currently available data, particularly since “good” remains value laden and highly subjective.

Life is offensive and people have various methods of coping. Control Freak is rarely an easy path.

Work Specializations Are Not Actually Demographic Dependant

When I read “Good Time Girls” about the brothel operators and the infamous women who worked them, I thought – imagine picking this up and seeing one of your relatives in this, eh?  no, that didn’t happen to me, it was just a funny idea.

 

Kinda like that joke about the man who rents a porno for a stag, only to see his own teenaged offspring in it.

it’s always okay as long as it’s someone else

but that’s the thing about statistics

everyone and anyone can be one, it depends on who counts and what is factored in

 

Hiring Practices – Meritocracy clashes with Affirmative Employment Equity Actions creating a tokenism; or so runs the claim – and the tainting people and painting into corners continues.

The first profession is often deemed Prostitution, trading sex for security and opportune matings. The first profession in the history textbooks is “farming” – which makes little sense since both hunting and gathering preceded that.

Stephen Harper Still Owes Nina Tryggvason $50*

*For starters, eh?

~~~~~~~~~~~~re-print~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Pychotic Break with LEzzie Bruce Tryggvason 2012 - 2013

Please tell Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper this; Text to copy and paste or use your own wording:

http://www.pm.gc.ca/eng/contact

Dear PM Harper – Nina Tryggvason would make a better Prime Minister than you. She was bullied out of the Federal Government of Canada for being a lesbian and an atheist. She worked in 7 Departments and none of them prepared a Question Period Card for you. That’s what your kind of “transparency” and “accountability” actually results in.

Signed

Your Name

Your Country

Failure Pride

Please and Thank you

Nina Tryggvason worked for 13 years at

While not bullied at every department – there was bullying and wrong doing going on at each and every single department that I worked for.

In some departments, the union was active and in other departments, they had no presence at all. That said, in the majority of offices the union and management are at such odds with each other that the employees are who suffer from both sides.

In all departments, employees are not able to work to their individual best potential – mostly owing to outdated work classifications and the hostile relationship between management and the union.

Most employees are hired by one department and that is were they retired from – often in the same job they started in even when technology and work process make position and work obsolete.

There does need to be a revamp of the public service and the biggest and most costly area is the top heavy structure of management and their over classified assistants and executive assistants – many of whom get their PSE jobs after having worked in Partisan Politics…..

I started in the mailroom and learned how the organizations worked and I worked my way up. I hadn’t wanted to work in government, I went to college, university and then technical school in film production. I already had 150 hours and 2 years volunteering in local tv and been a journalist in the major and community news in vancouver before I started in government….

Those Who Can

This is why I am in the process of joining the class action lawsuit against the RCMP on behalf of women employees and why I am considering legal matters at the Federal Human Rights level against Transport Canada.
Tryggvason Google Me doodle

Worse, that people who are employed by Federal Government Parties – and this is ALL OF THE PARTIES – these partisan people get to parachute into top jobs in the public service, without competition, without evaluation, without transparency and without any fairness to the public service employees who have worked their entire career in the service of Canadians.

I told every manager that I met is too many departments and many senior officers, the 7 I worked in and more, that I could do their jobs better than they could. and I bet them $50.

not paranoia wehn there is paperwork

There Can Be Only One Hero in a ShowWorld

bargains-251012-buffy xena_and_hercules_dvd_by_xena_96-d4zvosn

Buffy spins off Angel while Xena crushes Hercules.

Buffy’s first love was Angel, who turned evil after that pure joy, she sends him to hell; Spike rapes her then undergoes a trial to give her what she deserves and earns a soul.

Xena, fresh off of trying to break up Hercules and Iolas, saves Gabrielle from the slavers, and only saving 10,000 souls makes Xena leave Gabby; whom she prevented from being Amazon Queen, but knowing as the mother of peace they met again and again.
