A Satirical Blog

*(utilizing articles discussing facts)*

By:  Susan MeeLing

After the head injury caused a coma while I learned how to deal with the headaches, migraines, cognitive disorders, memory problems, and other medical conditions I went from College Algebra with Trigonometry & Calculus down to 2nd grade math.  Here is how logic works for someone like me::

~  It took awhile for the doctor's recommendation to use sticky notes, to help remember.

~  It took several months to realize sticky notes moved, let alone to remember to speak with the doctor.

~  After I finally remembered to ask the doctor about the note problem, notebooks were recommended.

~  When I could remember to pick up a notebook, it took a long time to learn similar to sticky notes, notebooks are not always where they were placed.

~  After I was able to organize the notebooks over several months I still had not learned notebooks are not always readily available, at the necessary time.

~  When I remembered to speak with the doctor about the notebook problem the doctor had few other suggestions, to assist memories better.

~  After several events and adding up sticky note and notebook location problems, I realized my skin goes everywhere I do.

~  Wanting my tattoos to only be for me and not for public consumption I started the ink on my legs, able to hide easier.

~  It would not be until many tattoos and several years later I would realize my memory problems were usually not as bad when wearing shorts, capri pants, or a skirt.

~  Between 3-5 years after my first tattoo I had the first tattoo completed on my arms, and my memory has slowly progressed towards an easier memory jolt.

 

 

When I say "it should not take a head injury to figure this out" it is partially in humor from personal experiences, towards understanding.

 

If I can laugh at my mistakes after recognizing and dealing with them, so can you.

 

You have the knowledge, understanding, and wisdom I lack in order to put everything together to fix the problems seen with abilities I do not have. 

 

Utilize the information within the blog to find genuine repairs and instead of complaining of the "hurtful" commentary, prevent the issues from reoccurring.

 

Then again, it should not take a head injury to figure that one out.

Does it take a head injury to figure this out about the Fight for $15 movement, military, and first

The pictures within this blog post refer to various sources of information regarding the hash-tag #FightFor15, and their views.

Afterwards, are my opinions.

RT.com Article "Hundreds of Philadelphia airport workers stage sit-in over ‘Fight for $15’ "

The Nation News Article By Sarah Jaffe and Doug Chayka "This Group Pioneered the Fight for $15. Can They Transform the Fight for Affordable Housing Too? New York Communities for Change wants to remake New York in a more equal image."

Now at the end, here are my opinions.

(My boyfriend assisted with the mathematics to ensure the correct numbers, and information.)

If each soldier, law enforcement officer, fire department associate, and/or emergency responder were to earn the query of $15 per hour, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year the minimum salary for the lowest level employee would equal

$131,400

* Should it take a head injury to figure out when the females and males who are serving our countries and cities honourably do not earn a minimum of $131,400 before earning more through time and experience; why should civilians whom do not serve their city/country, but only seek personal revenue?

* Does it take a head injury to figure out an enlisted soldier with less than two years experience in the workforce within any military branch earns less than $20,000 each year (far less than the beginning $131,400 per calendar year) and wonder why the #FightFor15-ers whine for better pay, when they do not put their lives on the line for others' safety while disregarding their own?

* Should it take a head injury to figure out the highest ranking NCO Enlisted soldier with over 40 years of service earns less than $100,000 per calendar year (less than the beginning $131,400 per calendar year) and wonder why the #FightFor15-ers whine for better pay, when they do not put their lives on the line to keep other people safe while disregarding their own?

* Does it take a head injury to figure out a brand new Officer with a college degree and less than 2 years of work experience earns less than $45,000 per year (much less than the beginning $131,400 per calendar year) and wonder why the #FightFor15-ers whine for better pay, when they do not put their lives on the line for others' safety while disregarding their own?

* Should it take a head injury to figure out when the highest ranking officer (O-12) with over 18 years experience makes less than $140,000 per year (just over the beginning wages of $131,400 per calendar year) and wonder why the #FightFor15-ers whine for better pay, when they do not put their lives on the line while being responsible for others' safety while disregarding their own safety?

* Does it take a head injury to figure out the starting salary for a police officer is between $25,000 through $50,000 each year (far less than the beginning $131,400 per calendar year) to wonder why the #FightFor15-ers whine for better pay, when they do not put their lives to run into dangerous situations for others while disregarding their own security?

* Should it take a head injury to figure out the beginning payment for fire department employees is below $45,000 per year (much less than the beginning $131,400 per calendar year) to wonder why the #FightFor15-ers whine for better pay, when they do not attempt to save others while disregarding their own safety?

* Does it take a head injury to figure out the starting salary for a first responder is under $45,000 per year (far less than the beginning $131,400 per calendar year) to wonder why the #FightFor15-ers whine for better pay, when they do not put their lives on the line for others while disregarding their own personal safety?

The ultimate measure of an individual is not where they stand in moments of comfort and convenience, but where they stand at the time of challenge and controversy.

We must reject the idea that everytime a law is broken society is guity, rather than the law breaker. 

Freedom is never-more than one generation away, from exinction.  We do not pass freedom on through our blood stream because freedom must be fought for, protected, and handed on for the next generation to do the same.

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

It should not take a head injury to figure this out, because you are smarter.
