Twitter [and This Blog]: A New Direction for the New Year…


Date: December 28, 2017

The abusive a-holes of Twitter, have lost the privilege of access to me, to my knowledge, to my experience, to my advice and to my wisdom.

I am not doing this for any other reason, than to jettison out of my life, abuse and garbage that I don’t need in my life.

I have already posted the last “Pink Head Spins” journal, that I ever will…That witch is condemned, destroyed and hung, by her own rancid black heart…

…You cannot deal with people, obsessed with dehumanizing and destroying you, right out of the gate…who refuse to offer or accept any olive branch…and who obsessively want to destroy you…Animals like that are too stupid and insane, to do anything with…other than what I have been doing…Using her to make a point, as to how stupid and insane the freaky extreme fringe is…

…It’s not healthy for me, to do this…and it does not reflect well on me, either…

…What she needs, is serious psychological help…and an intervention by professionals…

She has gone well off the rails…And she lacks the capacity, to be anything other than what she is…

…It’s wrong of me, to pick apart somebody so helpless and broken…And I feel I have failed both the MAP community, and myself, for having so many laughs at the expense of this mentally ill person…Despite everything…I am better than that…And I will act accordingly.

I am not giving this as an excuse…only as an explanation, to make it understood…

…I let nearly everything slide off of my back, when it comes to abuse, threats and vitriol…Normally, I respond with good charm, wit and wise knowledge…

…I have my pet peeves…but I only have one, singular issue, on which I have dedicated the remainder of my life…a “hill I will die on”…

The primary, fundamental purpose behind Our Love Frontier, is to establish that an open MAP can have and maintain a humane, open presence online, in the exact same venues as anybody else…

…That’s really it…All the stuff that I bring here, is entirely genuine and heartfelt…But my main focus, is in breaking the censorship and discriminations aimed at MAPs online…and to build a thriving MAP community…

…I am down right fierce…when people step forward and start to threaten me, in this manner…

…Nobody crosses me like that…NobodyEver

This can be a highly emotional issue for me…as I’ve been raked over the coals in this way, in extremely nasty manners, in the past…

I have tailored my style and presentation, to make it as inoffensive as humanly possible…And I’ve gone through a lot of work and refinement, to create and put forward a very fine blog…which I take a lot of pride in…

…It’s not just a good place for MAPs…It’s a great blog, period.

…A-holes trying to fuck me over, don’t set well with me…

I am confident, that this blog will stand, when all is said and done…WordPress has been extremely good to me…and I have been a good member of the WordPress community…I have nothing to hide, or be ashamed of.

To whom it may concern:

…On Jan 1st, 2018, I will implement a “block the psychopaths” policy, on twitter. That account is not there for fighting, or putting up with abuse and B.S.

Twitter psychopaths:

Get in your last snark, now…

…I deserve better, and will treat myself accordingly.

I am not obliged to put up with anything from you.

If you wish to interact with me, then you will behave in a manner equal to my own standards of conduct.

To those who threaten Our Love Frontier:

Your bane shall be having to watch this blog soar to new heights, as you stew in your self induced misery.

Spectacular good will not only survive in the face of your abuse…Our Love Frontier will thrive, high above you.

01) Beware, fellow plutocrats, the pitchforks are coming – Nick Hanauer


“Published on Aug 12, 2014

Nick Hanauer is a rich guy, an unrepentant capitalist — and he has something to say to his fellow plutocrats: Wake up! Growing inequality is about to push our societies into conditions resembling pre-revolutionary France. Hear his argument about why a dramatic increase in minimum wage could grow the middle class, deliver economic prosperity … and prevent a revolution.”

He is correct…

…Is anybody listening?

01) Ajit Pai Admits ISPs Throttled Content After Insisting It Never Happened


“Every now and then, Ajit Pai inadvertently tells the truth. Typically, he’ll do this by accidently contradicting a previous argument he’s made in order to validate a different lie he’s telling. He recently did this again by admitting AT&T once throttling content. Perhaps, if he got his story straight, he wouldn’t keep contradicting himself.”

“Here you can create your own downloadable 2016, 2017, and 2018 printable PDF calendars.

You have several options to choose from when creating your customized printed calendar.”

It’s very basic…not a lot of frills…but, it’s free!

The only real cost here, is whatever resources get used to print it.

Personally, I have a laser printer…every page printed, works out to roughly a dollar in printing resources…It may be worthwhile for me to just go buy a new calendar, at a local dollar store…

It’s still kind of neat, that this type of thing is available, online.

A Teen Sexting Case Revealed How Judges Let Police Invade Children’s Privacy…

01) A Teen Sexting Case Revealed How Judges Let Police Invade Children’s Privacy

“Whether the police have the right to force your teenage son to masturbate in front of them in order to incriminate himself is a legal question few parents would think they’d have to consider.

And yet Trey Sims’ legal guardians had to do exactly that. In an effort to prosecute the 17-year-old for sexting his 15-year-old girlfriend, Manassas police detective David Abbott obtained a search warrant authorizing him to take “photographs of [Sims’] genitals,” including “a photograph of the suspect’s erect penis.” According to court documents, in the process of executing the search warrant, Abbott took the teenager to a juvenile detention center, took him to a locker room and, with two uniformed, armed officers looking on, ordered Sims to pull down his pants.

After taking pictures with his cell phone of the teenager’s genitals, Abbot then ordered the minor to masturbate so that he could take a picture of his erection. Sims tried but failed to comply with the officer’s orders; Abbott later threatened Sims’ lawyer that, if police couldn’t get a picture of the teenager’s erection by forcing the kid to masturbate, he would obtain a photo of the teenager’s engorged genitals by subjecting him to “an erection-producing injection” at a hospital.

[…]

It wasn’t until this month — more than three years after Sims was taken to that locker room — that a federal appeals court issued a decision in his favor: By a divided 2-1 vote, the court held that a reasonable police officer should have known it was unlawful to order a teenage boy to masturbate in front of him and other officers.

Notably, though, that meant that one judge felt that police should, indeed, have the right to do force children to masturbate in front of them in order to incriminate themselves.

[…]

Sims’ case shows that we have a system in which the legislative branch is permitted to criminalize whatever it wants, with effectively no judicial oversight; police investigations are invasive, unchecked, and can cause far greater harm than the underlying criminal act; and it is nearly impossible to hold police liable for unlawful misconduct. Until we address those systemic problems, we should expect more tragic cases like this one.”
