Being in a situation where it feels as though the odds are stacked against you, and people are interested in seeing harm come to you in one form or another can be hard to deal with, there's no doubt about it. When it feels as though amount of support, at least directly within the situation in question, is tipped way in favor of those against whatever it is you are doing there, in terms of your goals and needs in the situation, it can easily bring about pangs of despair. It can feel as though there are no options, it can feel as though there are no chances and it can feel as though you might just have to take an “L” on whatever it is. We all have been through similar feelings to one extent or another in life, especially the longer we live it.

The Guy That Just Said, “Yeah? No Thanks.” (tags)
Standing up to conflict and harassment can seem a difficult thing. It's never easy for anyone and really who can say they've truly faced all that life has to offer in the way of trials and tribulations without having gone through some measure of harassment or maltreatment at least once? Of course harassment is relative and what is harsh treatment to one person, or deemed behavior that crosses a line, is merely everyday stuff to another. But there are laws and institutional regulations that define boundaries and denote specific behavior as going too far. Additionally there is the common sense most of us developed over our lifetimes.

There are many reasons for security within the world we live. For those reasons it is prudent to maintain alertness in the appropriate areas. We need people on the ground where there is need of the presence of law enforcement or security. We need the ability to observe appropriately places we have reason to believe are at risk of becoming targets of attack or places crimes in general could be committed. Any credible government needs the ability to make people aware of impending threats when necessary. Any stable civilization needs the ability to reasonably protect itself and keep itself orderly and free from crime.

When Getting Outpaced, Just Say We Won (tags)
If you ever find yourself in a position where you are targeted for harassment at your workplace, school or any other place and choose to stick things out, it may be helpful at times to read what others have to say about their experiences; their stories and the like. No matter how seemingly similar or dissimilar they may or may not appear at first, listen to or read it if possible. There may be bits and pieces to connect with or integrate into your own survival toolbox and sets of strategies for survival. They may not display immediately obvious applications to your situation, but later on could open up as things that are helpful with regards to implementing towards your own survival experience.

They now are forced to sleep on the sidewalk (not illegal) Having neutralized their targets, they are now targeting other groups of people to harass by intimidation and by impounding vehicles, Family Pets, or giving unwarranted parking tickets. I suspect these include Farmers, Raw foodists, Artists, Musicians, or any alternative or creative types.

While Edwards was “doing” his paramour, others in Washington, D.C., like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, have been “doing” the public about ending the war and impeachment.

Billions are wondering why (the government is so crooked) (tags)
Several billion people in the world — including myself — are wondering why: • America is hell-bent on destroying its own Constitution. The first Patriot Act torpedoed most of it, but now the new Patriot Act II — currently under wraps and about to be deployed secretly for a rigged vote in Congress — actually contains a provision to revoke the citizenship of American citizens if they are deemed to be connected with a terrorist organization. This decision would require no proof, only an assertion by the government. It means that people who attend peace protests are now eligible for indefinite detention without access to lawyers or phone calls to family. To be clear, it means quite literally that America is no longer a free country, and that its citizens are no longer Constitutionally protected from arbitrary punishment by its war-mad government.

A Recovering American (tags)
And I guess that's why I'm here. There are a lot of people that want to kill me. Most of the time, I don't think about it. Between work and my girlfriend, rooting for my sports teams…I barely have time to take notice of what's going on in the world. But every now and then…like when 9/11 happened…I had to stop and think, "Why would anyone do this to me and my country?" The answers that I came up with made me uncomfortable inside.

COUP WATCH: Political Projection Drives Rightwing Coup -- Red Rock Eater News (tags)
The projection here is staggering. This has been the pattern for ten years: preternaturally aggressive people who falsely accuse others of doing what they are doing themselves. They project their aggression into the objects of their aggression, so that as they attack others they experience themselves as the objects of the attack. This makes them even angrier and intensifies their displays of aggression.
