Equals – Blog No. 35

l43-neon-121205122629_big

What does it mean to be ‘equal’? Equal how? Equal to what?  When the statement was made that all men are created equal, which equality was being referenced? Was it the more ethereal ‘energy’ we share as human beings, that equality, or was it the notion that each embryo is created with as much future potential as any other? Or was the statement itself a demonstration of inequality because it references men, only? Perhaps all men are created equal.  All women are not.  That is clear at the outset.  Equality is a tricky word.  It holds too much promise for too many people who will never get to be ‘equal’ in today’s world.  Sadly there are those people.

Equality is about fairness.  Balance.  Wherever there is an imbalance, there will be discord.  The system does not handle discord well.  Nor does it create equals.  The very system discourages equality, equals.  The system is about working your way to the top, surpassing others.  It would seem that in the greedy world of capitalists, being equal is never enough.  There is the compulsion to be better, to earn more, to have more.  To outshine your peers.  It becomes an obsession for many people.  Perhaps those at the top of the capitalist ladder do have ‘equals’.  Perhaps they consider themselves ‘equal’ to people who earn the same as they do.  That is perhaps their measure in life.

It is worth fostering equality as an ideal.  I think it is an ideal.  It is something to strive towards, like peace.  Equality is a work in progress.  Should it become the norm rather than the exception in the long run, that can be considered an ideal outcome.  The child who cannot read or write is not equal, in 2014, to the child who can.  The child with access to technology is not equal to the child that does not.  This is how it is in our world.  Despite the ever-present inequalities, though, and the concerns that these inequalities raise, it is not to say that the ‘unequal’ cannot reach the heights that the ‘equal’ tend to reach.  They must just apply themselves to working with what they have and trust that it is enough.

  1. All of the political parties of the world should be died by their lies, Bright Quang said.

  2. American myth Number One is: “All men are created equal”! Thomas Jefferson and the other contributors to the United States Constitution meant well, but did not understand that no man is created equal. However, mankind should be treated equally “under the law.”
    Every human life is separate. Everyone is a unique individual, who from birth is different. This is not meant to be a negative connotation. It is simply a statement of fact. Some are born handsome or pretty. Some are born homely. Some are born Mesomorphic (super body). Some are born Ectomorphic (thin body) or Endomorphic/Geomorphic (large round body). Some are born with athletic prowess. Some are born clumsy. Some are born to become bright. Some are born and are not so bright. Some are aggressive. Some are passive. Some are simply apathetic.
    We are not equal, nor should we expect to be equal except under the law. There will never be equal outcome no matter how much Progressive rhetoric promotes it. We should, however, all have equal opportunity to achieve whatever our particular talents allow us to achieve. We are not born winner’s; therefore, everyone needs to understand they may never be number one. Like snowflakes, we are all one of a kind.
    Each individual has to find a way to adjust to who they are, not how they compare to someone else. We don’t need to lose in order to make someone else feel good, nor should we gloat when we discover that we win at most things we try.
    There should be no government law passed to appoint anyone a “protected species.” based upon one’s racial heritage. Nor should there ever be a quota to make sure one is hired based on anything other than personal abilities. The Federal Government in 1964 passed an act that was meant to assure equality in the workplace. However, it only placed Americans in categories. We now have preferential treatment for many of our citizens based solely on race, heritage, and gender not on personal qualifications. This attempt to make us all “equal” has separated Americans by quota category ever since.
    Isn’t it past time to re-evaluate the law that prohibits employers from fair hiring based on qualifications? Isn’t is time to have an honest dialog among different races and genders without the politically correct “police” hovering over, and directing the dialog? Isn’t it time to be able to say what is actually on one’s mind rather than saying the “wrong” thing that might be considered a “hate crime by a Big Brother Government?” Isn’t it time to finally admit the truth? We are not equal. However, we are all precious and special, and exactly the way evolution and our personal Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) designed us to be.
    Isn’t it time to accept that the greatness of America is that people from all over the planet can gather in one place, assimilate, learn to live with one another, and create the greatest civilization the world has ever known? It is not productive to support hate-mongers, dividers, “victims,” and America haters. It is an undeniable fact that divided Americans all lose. United under a freely elected leader who understands love of country, family and personal faith, Americans can all choose to be winners. Free citizens can live equally under the law, and celebrate their unique individuality together. The time for quotas is over. Exceptional Individuals synergistically working together toward a common goal of freedom and security should be everyone’s goal in a successful United States of America!

  3. Dear Sir:
    That’s why; I would like to submit to share my case to you because I am a weak-willed man without any guns, but I have my voices of wisdom let me build my life. In my opinion, I am living in modern country using my intelligence let me struggle with the injustices, which have been trampling my honor and dignity down and destroying my name and age and my voices of wisdom. If you may understand about my true life, you may help me by any meanings of your kindness because according to a best of American citizens who are only paying full income taxes, voting for elections and not violating to the American laws, so the American citizens are equal before the American Courts; and therefore, I have said, “Perform justice which is peaceful, but anti-justice, as demagogy.”
    I would like to thank you so much.
    Sincerely

    My Civil Rights Petition to President Barack Obama

    Dearest President Obama:

    I would sincerely like to petition you may help me recapture honor, human
    dignity, and my voice of wisdom when Superior Court of County San Mateo and Barbara Schmidt Driver Safety Manager in 1377 Fell Street Second Floor, Department of Motor Vehicle in San Francisco, California 94177, they put a label of mental case on my head in order to trample my Civil Rights down. Next, I do fight for
    the cause of justice from the low to the high court, but they have anti- even
    hand justice. They did not give me get equal when I am petitioning my case to
    U.S. Supreme Court because I am an innocent American citizen. Finally, they
    have been anti-civil rights of mine because my duty and responsibility have
    been paying for full income taxes, voting election, and not violating any
    crimes and traffic laws, I am indubitably protected by our American
    Constitution and I am equal before any American Courts. For that reason, no
    rich one or powerful influence’s one pushes my weak, my poor, and my honest
    life to a corner of wall without outlet, but they have calumniated me violate traffic
    law in order to earn money me through San Mateo County Bar Association. In
    fact, my quality of legal person hasn’t lost, but there have not given me have
    right before the American Courts in order to complain compensation of my
    injuries. For these reasons above of my case, I would like to petition to you may help me take out of the mental case on my head, and here are:

    First of all, my dedication would like to offer my book’s “The Gift” to you; and
    then, I would like to follow this; “The First Amendment
    provides that Congress make no law respecting an establishment of religion or
    prohibiting its free exercise. It protects freedom of speech, the press,
    assembly, and the right to petition the Government for a redress of
    grievances.” But some governmental employees have put a label of mental case on my head in order to defame and to destroy my honor, my human dignity, and my voice of wisdom when I have been building up my wonderful life for more than the sixty years. In fact, Barbara Schmidt Driver Safety Manager in San Francisco, she has calumniated mental case for me in order to destroy my mane and age. Accurately, I am a Vietnamese American artist, poet, and writer when I have been exhibiting pieces of artwork and books for many places in the United States, I have created books’ publishing the fourteen subjects of the books and over one hundreds’ art subjects. But all of my works were nothing; I did not earn more money because I was insulted mental case by Barbara Schmidt Driver Safety Manager. In my case, on November 7, 2007, I was trauma when getting out of my house in order to get mails, but I was accident when falling down on the land. And then, I was visiting my family
    doctors for the few time, I was not driven any cars for one year by my family
    doctors’ order. That time, I was obeying them; I have never driven any cars and
    not violated to any traffic laws and crime laws. However, Department of Motor
    Vehicle has ordered me beg for writ of mandate from the court because it has
    put a label of mental case on my head.

    Second,
    my civil Rights are discriminated by the low and the high court of the State of
    California. According to American Constitution is protected for Civil Rights for all
    American People if no one violates any American laws. When I have not violated
    any traffic and crime laws, I am treated equally by the American Laws. Thus, I
    went to the County of San Mateo of Superior Court on September 25, 2009 in order
    to make an appointment for the judge. So there gave me get number case is
    C.I.V488313 and I was not paid any legal fees because at this time, I was fired
    off by my job. Let me recapture my driver license and my honor, my human dignity,
    and my voice of wisdom were lost in all by Barbara Schmidt Driver Safety
    Manager. However, on December 10, 2009, the County of San Mateo of Superior
    Court has not judge my case, but it gave an order me come to San Mateo County
    Bar Association’s phone is (650)369-4149. In my opinion that one hour of the
    attorney is at least from $600.00 to $2,500.00 when my salary of per month was
    the eight hundreds dollars ($800.00), I should not be able to follow my
    lawsuit, but I can be… because I do believe to Lawyer Referral Service than
    the others. Ironically, after discussing between I and Savas J. Loukedis Lawyer
    about my case on January 22, 2010 He was surveying from D.M.V in Redwood City and telling me pay him get $2,000.00 dollars (two thousands dollar). Lets him give notice of appeal—even though, D.M.V was wrong to my mental case, but it has ordered of suspension my driver license limitless. As a result, I told him and said,
    “I am unable to pay this legal fee because I was not wrong. Why did it force
    me to go to the court? It was humorously been playing for unfair game’s
    anti-democracy of our nation, so I can’t believe to this court because one side
    of them told me to have mental case. The other sides of them acknowledged to
    award’s letter for my best citizen; and since, there had denied my case. In my
    opinion that they were super-demagogic; and therefore, Therefore, I have
    decided for complaining my case to Supreme Court of California State
    because this court seemed to make money me.

    Third, my excellence of legal person is value because my duty and responsibility have been carrying on the American Constitution as like voting election, adequately
    paying income-taxes, but not violating any traffic and crime laws—and therefore, I do fight for the cause of justice to the end. Subsequently, the American Laws ought to protect to my Civil Rights because I do not only dedicate my voice of wisdom for our nation but also I am awarded letter’s outstanding citizen by the County of San Mateo of Superior Court again. Accurately, when Barbara Schmidt Driver Safety Manager and the County of San Mateo of Superior Court were abridged Civil Rights of mine, they have entirely destroyed my name and age and gross income by my mental condition—and therefore, I ought to complain my case to Supreme Court of the State of California because I did not sell any pieces of artwork and earn more money of my books. Truthfully, After graduating from California State University, I have been finding out the job, earning money, and repaying for student-loan when I have creating for the forty-three portraits of American Presidents and the fourteen books into the English language, I was not sold any pieces of artwork, the books, and hired
    any employees that they could work with me. Those were bankrupted by my mental
    condition. I was become to a worst artist, poet, and writer by a label of mental
    case. Give consideration to my fight for the cause of Justice, Supreme Court of
    California has approved my complaint’s compensation for five millions dollars and
    gave me get case number is A 128855 on May 15, 2010, there could give me have a
    good chance if the court ought to judge my case. Suddenly, the County of San
    Mateo of Superior Court was displaying a law game, because my case was held in
    with camera on June 24, 2010 after I did fight for the cause of justice. Then,
    it showed its final decision and said, “With condition was for writ of
    mandate is denied.” In contrast, the conflict of the American laws makes
    me confuse—and in fact, when I did not violate any traffic laws, I was put a
    label of mental case— I petitioned for writ of mandate, but it did not judge.
    When I was appealing to high court of California,
    I was noticed deny by the County of San Mateo of Superior Court. Continuously, I
    do fight for the cause of justice to high court of the United States
    in order to recapture my honor, human dignity, and wisdom of my life and to
    complain compensation of my injuries. Give encouragement to my struggles for
    the cause of justice, I was abridged civil rights from the low to high court in
    the State of California.
    My name and age were entirely destroyed by the discrimination color because I
    do not only bear a Native American but also have the poor and the weak. I was
    treated unfairness by the American laws when the United States of Department of
    Justice could try to delay my complaining for petitioning compensation five
    millions dollars. My present, my future, and my offspring have entirely been
    lost by a label of mental case of Barbara Schmidt Driver Safety Manager. When
    the U.S of Justice has ordered me make up specific statement already, I will
    not receive any information after one year that I had made up my specific
    statement.

    In conclusion, Dearest President,

    I am sincerely petitioning my case to President because my heart, my soul, my
    brain are very sufferings when I am an honest, innocent, not violating any
    traffic and crime laws, but I was put a label of mental case on my head by the
    powerful. First, I was abridged Civil Rights by Barbara Schmidt Driver Safety Manager. My quality of legal person was completely lost the freedom and own business by the discrimination’s courts of the State of California. Because from the days were notice of findings and decision of Barbara Schmidt Driver Safety Manager; my life was to be put in prison when my freedom, action business, and legal person
    were entirely lost by some governmental employees of our nation. First, a
    prisoner of the mental case could not carry out in the public because the
    police always oversee the mental case to violate laws when my mental case is
    very harmful to the public and my family is too.

    My business was bankrupted because on one buys my pieces of artwork and reads my books; even though, my books were supported for the historic America and
    college students because I was mental condition by Barbara Schmidt Driver
    Safety Manager. Some of American Courts have believed to my mental case when
    they did not judge for my injuries. As President should understand about a
    mental person that he does not only lose the present but also, the long run, will
    be lost to so many offspring of my lineages that they will be ashamed by my
    mental condition when I have been creative for a big treasure of the art, the
    literature, and voice of wisdom. Especially, I have not been earned for good
    money because my quality is mental case. After standing up from a prisoner of
    conscience of the Vietnam War, my dreams are hopeful to build a new life in our
    nation. With evidently, my mental condition does not only destroy our nation
    face. I have been painted the forty-four portraits of our presidents’ including
    of your portrait and some of bronze casting’s American Presidents again but
    also crushes down our American Justice when my art, my literature, and my voices
    of wisdom have been living on the bookshelf of the human world. Therefore, I
    would decidedly entreat you may help me recapture all of my qualities from the
    United States of Supreme Court because there is represented by the American
    Justice, but the right comes to your decision.

    Sincerely
    Yours

    Bright Quang
