Help Send Me to D.C. to Address Lawmakers (Click link to donate)
I am Stephanie, a survivor of child rape. I was molested at age 7 for the first time; though it was not the last. At age 13, I had my first round of cervical cancer. And, at 22 it had returned with a vengence. These cancers were caused directly as a result of repeated child molestation. At age 23, the government deemed me unfit to work with a borderline IQ of 72 and Complex PTSD. A pannel of judges, pyschologists, and college professors said, “You’ll never learn enough to toat trash for McDonalds”. It was then, I set out to prove them wrong!
Over the years, I have spent my life not only dedicated to educating myself but, others as well. However, awareness falls short in resolving child rape issues in our society. It’s going to take changes to the system. This is why I am raising money to go to D.C. to lobby lawmakers to change current sex offener laws. Child rape affects the whole Nation, not just the state it occurs in.
Each year tax payers spend billions to support victims of child rape. When raped/traumatized a part of you dies. A part you can’t get back -trust and security. Our personalities form in early years. When this is interupted by intrusion/abuse the child’s brain doesn’t develop correctly. Fight or flight kicks in -surviving is all that matters. They cannot focus in school (most drop out), And, most can never have a healthy relationship -friendship or mateship. Many end up commiting suicide, or in jail.
Each year, American Taxpayers dole out approximately $15,120 per year in money, housing, and food per victim. This does not include medical/therapy costs which can reach in the millions for just one victim; as in my case. Without medical costs, over a 23 year period, taxpayers pay an estimated $347,760 per victim, not including medical/cost to society’s foundation. Money which could be put toward our National Debt!
Yet, the sex offender registery site is rarely updated for all counties in the U.S. In Oregon alone, statistics say approximately 82,000 registed sex offenders reside in the state. Of which 32,000 have disappered off the map. These statistics were gathered in 2010. In Baker County Oregon, there are 99 sex offenders, yet only 2 show on the registery. What’s more, this is a city of only 10,000.
Point being, the system is broken, state funding cut, and molestation/child pornography is on the rise. It’s time to make child rape a federal offense with no statute of limitaion. If the victim is under 12, automatic life with no chance of parole. Furthermore, the National Registery MUST be updated daily. Technology is a wonderful thing. We need to use it to protect our children’s future! I bet those who run this system update their Facebook/Twitter status everyday!
Please help me address lawmakers! Monies left over will be donated to cervical cancer research/prevention, and child advocate group CASA.
I ask for your support in my efforts to eradicate child rape/pornagraphy.
“As a survivor, let me share with you what these victims have been put through, and the effect it will have on society. Normally I do not discuss this very personal part of my past with the public; however, in this case I feel it is imperative. Victims are often ashamed, sexually confused, angry, mentally tortured by visions of the intrusion, endure nightmares, suffer from guilt, develop personality disorders, entertain thoughts of suicide, and have challenges with intimate social relationships. These victims need the public to cry out and lend them strength through understanding and action in hopes one day they will see themselves as survivors and not victims.” ( https://cowgirlkitty41.wordpress.com/2011/11/14/paterno-gets-the-boot-for-amoral-judgment/)”
A few days ago, I was awaiting an appointment at a health clinic; when a mother and young child came, checking in for their appointment. The child looked all of about 7 or 8-years old. The mother and I shared a brief hello, as she filled out paperwork for new patients. Suddenly, I heard a woman’s loud voice yelling and cursing. She seemed upset to say the least. The mother sitting with her young son, quickly put headphones in his ears so he could no longer be subjected to the sailor-like language which flowed from the mouth of the agitated woman. It was at this point, I made my stand –and, not quietly either.
A Constitutionalist, I believe in the 1st Amendment Right. However, I do not believe it gives a person the Right to offend everyone around them. At what point does a person’s Right to Free Speech end? One is incitement. A person cannot use the 1st Amendment to incite violence. This woman’s cursing and yelling affected others around. And, it in fact incited violence within me! Children mimic what they see and hear –simple as that. It’s called conditioning. Conditioning is a huge part of a child’s personality and/or behavior. This is science –not my opinion.
As I sat in angered silence, continuing to listen to the ranting of an adult incapable of controlling her emotions and mouth –the madder I became. It was at this point I became filter-less. Tapping the angered woman on her shoulder, I said this: “Excuse me, I know it’s none of my business but, when you’re in public, especially around children and aged folks, you should watch your foul language and emotions –you’re rude!” She gazed at me, as if to say, “It’s not your business!” I beg to differ!
When you’re in public, in my presence, and you speak with disrespect for everyone around to hear, it becomes my business. Children are our future! Everyone complains about actions of our younger generation. Well, if you foul-mouthed Wankers would behave and act appropriately in front of them, be the example, they wouldn’t act in such ways! It takes a village to raise a child. However, it only takes one person to ruin one –to mentally damage a mind of innocence beyond repair. Minding your business is not the way to success –being part of the solution is.
So, to all you Wankers who think you have the Right to say what you wish, when you wish. Make sure you’re not in arms-length of me! Because, the 1st Amendment protects you from the Government –not me! I’m good and tired of people who are only concerned with themselves –like the Universe revolves around them. I WILL use my 1st Amendment Right to inform you, you’re socially unacceptable, and should be prevented from speaking until you’re taught better! Or, a criminal fine should be imposed –it’s called, Dawn dishwashing liquid down the throat!
P.S. TO THE WOMAN I SPEAK OF:
PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL IN PUBLIC! You sound like a low-life hooker who blows sailors for change!
Obama and the Liberal Left are now attacking our Right to vote or not. The President, using the term loosely, is now considering a ‘Mandate Vote Act’. This would mean, no matter the circumstance, every person eighteen and over must vote, or be held criminally responsible. This would certainly mean the downfall of America’s voting system. Which proves to be already troubled. This latest stunt proves, Obama’s lack of leadership, his turncoat attitude toward Israel, and his ‘hug-a-thug’ approach to ISIS has the Left-wingers worried about the upcoming 2016 Presidential Election. Democrats and Liberals know, we the People aren’t happy!
Why else would the President suggest such lunacy, if not a political ploy? It’s certainly not common sense or logic. I’m not saying everyone’s stupid, but I am not saying everyone’s smart either! Most Americans aren’t aware of the political brinksmanship which is destroying this country from within. And, I speak of both immature Parties! Most voters unfortunately, vote using what I call the “60-second-smear” method. Meaning, many people vote using information can-fed to them through the media’s 60-second smear campaigns between favorite television shows.
Why would anyone want an uninformed voter to vote? People who are made to vote are not going to educate themselves further just because, they “have” to vote. Moreover, most would just rebel and choose whatever –not even reading what or who’s up for vote. Why would any rational person want a voting system like this? A person or Party who knows, unless they do, they have no chance of winning the Presidency –that’s who! Obama’s actions, or lack thereof has sealed the Republican ticket to the Whitehouse.
For anyone to suggest this sort of voting system will work, has a sever lack of cognitive ability. And, they certainly should not be running America or her Military! I find this yet, just another attempt by Socialist/Marxists to destroy America from within. 2016 must be the year of change for our Administration. If a change does not happen –I fear the worst. What we need to do is: get rid of the two-Party/ Electoral College bull crap, and make every person’s vote count on all state, local and national elections. Making every vote count is the only fair way of voting. No law or action should be taken without an individual voting election –“for the People, by the People”. And, those who don’t want to participate should not be penalized.
With so many religions practiced throughout the World, it’s hard to know who, if any, is right. There are Mormons, Lutherans, Catholics, Jews, Muslims, and many other denominations. Then there are Atheists and Scientologists. What a conundrum of conflicted stories and theories! A person could go mad trying to decipher exactly what it takes to get to the Holy Land -Heaven per se. Or, if such a peaceful place exists.
I’ve been asked many times what I believe when it comes to religion. Right then, I know a fight will ensue. I believe for the most part, people are natural born hypocrites. Judgmental bastards who wish to make others feel unworthy. Either we are not dressed appropriate, or, our racial/sexual preference differs. We drink way too much, or don’t go to church nearly enough. If you don’t give God 10% of your income, there will be Hell to pay! Do you do charity work? Well, it’s not enough, you better do more!
If you believe in God, or intelligent design, Atheists say, you’re a delusional, Right-wing nut-job who thinks an imaginary friend will save you from certain doom and judgment. Christians suggest, Atheists don’t believe in God because, they don’t want to accept there will be consequences for their actions. All claim to possess love, compassion, understanding, common sense, and logic. All bidding for your following and fellowship. Is it possible for all to be a bit wrong, and a bit right? The possibilities are endless when examined with an opened mind.
I do believe in intelligent design. Plants and animals, including humans, are male and female; each made different and complex. Each having their own DNA sequence. A complex, complicated existence –matched by no other. Nature says, males and females mate to repopulate. This belief has nothing to do with religion, or lack thereof. Anything else does not make cognitive sense. However, “Judge Thee Less Thee Be Judged”. Your sex life is not my concern.
Personally, I could care less who you love, or what God you serve –if any. We are given agency for a reason. I condemn only those cultures which are extreme or abusive in nature. Committing atrocities in the name of religion, or lack thereof. Any religion which requires one to kill in the name of God, Jesus, Satan, or Allah is a religion of Evil. An agenda brainwashing cult. If I kill someone, it’s due to their actions. Because they tried to harm me or mine. Not because of my belief in God! A murderer minus religion is, still a murderer; only without faith of forgiveness.
If you raise your children to respect themselves and others, too treat others how they wish to be treated, affording everyone the same inherent Rights, then, I could care less under what belief system you do it. If your child does not lie, cheat, steal, rape, molest, deal drugs, or kill –then you’ve done well. Under what faith you teach is your Right –and consequence. Conditioning starts at home. I condemn any village who turns their back on their future –the children of today –of tomorrow. Pointing out differences separates, dividing the village. A divided community cannot, and, will not thrive. Whether the split is religious in nature or not! Being an individual is not a sin –it’s an honor. Let our differences unite us –not divide us!
In contrast, a village must wield tough justice for those who are evil by heart. It must condemn victimization via harsh punishment. This is not religion; it’s behavioral science. Those who smite justice, and hurt others –so, shall they pay. If a community has one thief, it has many. A productive village is a foundation of trustworthiness, selflessness, and togetherness. And so, together we must work to protect what is right, and banish those which mean harm. This concept is not theology or ideology, it is common sense.
What’s my religion? Common sense!
As an American, a person, a human being I stand against ISIS, and against extreme Islamists! I stand with Jordan, Japan, and all other nations dealing with the atrocities of ISIS. I condemn ISIS for their actions, and call for the death of all ISIS members! This last display of the barbaric burning of a Jordanian pilot will mean the end of ISIS. They have hung themselves with a rhetoric rope. The world will not, cannot stand for this type of war crime. And, I see the world cringing over the terror ; loading the streets demanding revenge. ISIS is on borrowed time.
However, I believe Obama has once again dropped the ball when it comes to leading this country and the fight against this cancer named ISIS. His lack of action speaks of what kind of American he is not! He’s no leader. He’s an enabler. I condemn his lack of actions, and call for his resignation NOW! The world needs a leader! A person who will take all measures to make sure this group of barbaric thugs are eradicated!
Additionally, I call for the immediate control of our borders. Any Congress person, or leader who does not take same stance will NEVER get my vote! I’m ashamed of my administration to say the least!
Growing up in the 70’s and 80’s, technology held different mediums. Television, newspaper, and radio was mainstream media. Only the elite owned computers. Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse, Woody Woodpecker, Chips, and the Andy Griffith Show were big hits. Radio was the avenue to stardom in the music industry. Game Halls with jukeboxes, pool tables, and game machines were number one hangouts for all ages. Oh, how I long for those days! However, the days of ‘family’ television and entertainment is that of the past. No more Black & White’s; no more vinyl records.
No. Today we have, ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’, South Park, American Dad, Family Guy, and the Walking Dead. Disgusting at best! Instead of records, we have IPods, smart phones, and YouTube. A whole network of so called reality –which is, far from reality! The F-word is normal for late night TV. All other curse words are fair game all day. Sexual situations are blatant; sex education via sitcom. Even today’s cartoons are foul in nature; filled with situational ethics. It seems, there is no right and wrong –only grey areas.
Yet, banishing television would barely put a dent in said issue; especially when, the internet is full of input. Look up ‘cupcake’ on Google, see what pops up! Nothing is sacred in the world of cyberspace. The internet is full of perverts, hackers, and criminals of all types. Yet, we let our children walk alone, down the dark halls of illusion called Facebook, Twitter, Tagged, and, MySpace. All a cesspool of anonymous strangers, who are undoubtedly not who they say. Haven’t we always taught children “Don’t talk to strangers”?
However, strangers lurk around every fiber optic corner. Waiting, watching, playing games with your family. Online gaming has taken the place of pinball machines and Donkey Kong. Games such as Second Life, World of War Craft, and Pot Farm have commandeered the gaming world. In addition too, role-playing war games for multi-players. Gamers can meet other avid gamers –competing to death. For the mentally ill, this can become their reality.
So, what do we do in this catch 22 ‘technology’ era? With the First Amendment Right at risk, it’s impossible to say “Someone cannot express oneself”. However, at some point, other people’s Rights infringe on mine. At what point do we say, some things are NOT okay? Expression and subjection ride a fine line. I, we, should not be subjected to rude, crude, expressions which, degrade the values of society; along with the attitudes of our young. Respect is a minority in cyberspace. But, is technology really a vast wasteland? Not worth salvage? No. Like any technology, it’s all how you use it! It’s how we educate people about cybercrime. It’s all about security.
Below is the solution to this conundrum:
There’s an off/on button you’re in control of! That button is your Right to Freedom of Expression –and, an end to unwanted Freedom of Expression.
A friend called on me this morning to inform me her sister had committed suicide after suffering from withdrawal from Lorazepam. Her husband, who video taped her withdrawals, found her shortly after this was posted on YouTube. I was asked by the family to honor her wish, of warning others, by posting, and sharing this video. I ask, would you please watch and share. It’s heartbreaking to endure. However, this subject must be addressed. Many people across the world suffer this same fate. We must change the system.
Patty had only been taking Lorazepam for three months. This video was her 18th day of cold turkey withdrawal. Her family called the doctor and emergency room for help with no avail. Patty, a recent cancer survivor, stabbed herself within hours of her videos being posted (there are two). Her husband started videoing her at her request; when she could not get professionals to help. Please, please….let’s stop this insanity!!!!!
I have permission, and have been requested by Patties family to post this video. Please share and discuss.
