Never Give Up

18010324_617900025073852_7766520870411922112_n

I was already ready to retire from my activism when something happened:

Some snakes wiggled up to my toe and blame me for someone’s disappearance.

Why am I always blamed for somebody’s inadequacy and insecurity? and now for someone’s disappearance?

There you go : personalities clash  when there is stress and some goons become snakes and termites. The true person comes out.

No wonder , I am still here, I will never give up.

The picture says it all. You are wrong again asshole!

Cheers!

My Panama Tour , but, Cebu?

Panama is the most progressive country in Central America.

Guess what? it is because of their Panama Canal, a gateway to Atlantic Ocean from the Pacific Ocean.

The people are diverse, and so is the food.

French is still good, but I prefer the local food.

Empanada is good but the Cebuano empanada is better.

Beaches are good, but Cebu beaches are better.

What I am driving at? Cebu is better ..hello Cebu here I come!

The Panama Canal, a world wonder

My effort, blood, sweat and tears have come to fruition

In the heavily Christian society of the Philippines, nonbelievers meet with little respect, and they sometimes become targets of open hostility—as the founder of HAPI knows first-hand. Marissa Torres Langseth, known as “Miss M” among volunteers, now lives in the United States. But she is a stalwart of the Philippines’ fledgling atheist movement, having previously set up the Philippine Atheists and Agnostics Society (PATAS) before leaving to start HAPI.

When Langseth first started this work, she received torrents of abuse online, including being called “a whore” and the “Bride of Satan,” she told me. “That’s how Filipinos think. They view atheists as Satanists: somebody who believes in demons and evil, who has no moral values and who doesn’t have any meaning in life.”

Undeterred, Langseth said she wants to fight the prevailing attitude among many poor Filipinos that their fate is in God’s hands. “My mother would go to church to ask for food and clothing and money,” she recounted. “Most Filipinos think that God provides. It will give a lot of people common sense when we let them know that there really is no God.”

With bittersweet memories: Our very first international exposure.. in April 28, 2011 :http://freethinker.co.uk/2011/04/28/the-pope%E2%80%99s-gonna-have-a-cow-catholic-philippines-gains-its-first-atheist-society/
ALL original members are gone,
some lost in the wilderness.

But we have gained traction :

Humanists are starting to gain a foothold in the Philippines

My heartfelt gratitude to Michael French, journalist of The Atlantic and Barry Duke of  The Freethinker.

Another site picked us up, this time from World Religion News :

Atheist Missionaries Are Spreading Humanist Ideals in the Philippines

As you know, we are not religious, because, we have been there, done that.

Blottered by NBI, Philippines for estafa by deceit

14518721_10210706210915419_944125025_n

Some good news finally from NBI Philippines.

Aljohn L de Leon has been charged with estafa by deceit, thru online sob stories and pathological lying.

He is in  hiding for now. He can become wanted dead or alive in the future.

Pay back time: this sociopath  shall be caught and an apology will not even fix his stupidity and greediness.

I am vindicated.  All his lies were proven as fabricated and false facts.

Everything that comes from this sociopath is bound to be trashed.

He tried to scam a few  more foreigners and OFW’s.

Good riddance. No more mercy for this pathological liar and sociopath.

No good deed goes unpunished

 

10477896_670291543089262_60140675145339196_nOn February 10, 2017, my husband  did a wonderful job removing  the snow in our block with his brand new snowblower. He does this for free, no remuneration, declined all help including gas money.

He is such a perfectionist, he tried to remove the snow  left remaining in our long driveway. Lo and behold, slipped and fell.

He is too stubborn, took a cane and still walked limping. He was in so much pain, that, we went to the ER and was sent home after a few hours. However, we were called back for a CT scan to confirm an occult fracture. It was confirmed,  long story short, he had a hip surgery to put 3 screws in. It was uneventful, he was back home after a few days and started home rehabilitation.

This is all the same as  what I am doing for the Philippines. All I want is to help propagate critical thinking and humanism/atheism since 2010.  All I got was being bullied on line, I was called nasty names and worse, ” backstabbed” several times again and again.  These pinoys do not even know how to apologize even if they were proved wrong. They defend themselves by spreading fabricated lies about me over and over again. These pinoys are pathological liars, scumbags, miserable, arrogant assholes,  mostly jobless and no pot to pee.

Truth be told, I have spent > $ 50,000 USD,  since 2010,  just doing this activism . All funds coming from my  pockets -my hard-earned money, from my own sweat, blood, and tears.

Still, nothing is good enough for these pinoys.  I am trying to make sense of all of these. But, I failed. I cannot lead them to where I want them to be. Although, humanism is growing, I am tired already. I do not want to continue this process anymore. I have given enough of myself to them. I need to take care of my husband and myself.

I am an expatriate, I will not even retire in the Philippines. It is just another tourist destination for me.  My husband and I will continue to travel around the world:  the Philippines could be forgotten soon enough, but, not my family.

Misogynist atheist assholes in the Philippines

 

995357_1284129801602130_1856641407113985545_nWould you believe some atheists are so misogynist, that they attack me personally, but,  on FB. I want to see you when I get home to the Philippines! This is my challenge. I know all of you.

No wonder, these scumbags remain poor, unable to improve themselves and have no pot to pee.

Some of them owe people money , cannot repay them , hid from them and even badmouth them on FB.

Some of them are sexual predators, that is why they were banned in HAPI.

Some were caught stealing, continue to deny it , yet cannot prove their innocence.

Some are just too arrogant to be in HAPI, were ” butthurt “,  because they were caught having Janus face.

Some are just following blindly, like a blind leading the blind.

Misogyny is supposed to be only for the religious.

I guess,  misogyny is common in pinoy mentality, a part and parcel of crab mentality , envy and jealousy. Unfortunately, I know these assholes personally. AlI can say is that, they need to seek psychological help because they cannot see a mote in their eyes.

These people lack integrity, from the get go.

Crab mentality and Gossiping

Crab mentality is very much alive. In fact, it is very common in the Philippines.

No,  it does not mean being crabby nor irritable.

Crab mentality means, people try to pull you down hoping you will not fly your lovely society. It is an act of  desperation to bring you down. It is an act of jealousy or  envy. It is an act of cowardice. 10155352_544557818995969_7366304235015782274_n

Their modus operandi is usually gossiping, a favorite past time of the jobless, poor and miserable people.

They love spreading fabricated lies without proof nor evidence

when asked about proof,  they lie some more to cover the other lies

1513171_882223061896108_3649004580523817519_n

Are you one of them? No lessons learned in the past but dramas and continuation of immaturity and bitterness.

What a pity .

The older I get, the better I am, no dramas

Oh well, the low lifes are acting up again.

Not unusual,  for we have a huge event coming pretty soon. Been there, done that. These scumbags are predictable.

Nobody talks about a nobody.  Even fools have stories to tell. and  idiots know that very well.  What a pity, still jobless and poor? You can only blame thy selves.

They just want my attention,  jealousy and envy much. All talks but all empty gestures: not even a pot to pee.

They are sorry asses because they can no longer taste my money and chocolates from the USA.  Hate Americans?  , but love our $$$.

And worse, they are no longer in my circle and not even in my league.

They want their balls stroked, but in reality they have no balls.

Using regionalism ?  what a pity : I am not even bisaya.. I was born in Nueva Ecija with Tagalog and Ilocana parents. I am just all over the world.

Victim role playing, acting like victims, they do not know, they are just actually talking about themselves: narcissist and sociopaths galore. Psychiatry is my second specialty.

Besides,  I am adept at marketing and promotions. Do you even know what are the steps in making a society work?

Any publicity is good. Look at HAPI, an international society just after one year.

Instead of learning from me,  these maggots complain and bash me.

Oh well, one cannot teach green eyed monsters, snakes and termites.

Please continue to wallow in bitterness and poverty, while I retire in luxury and  HAPI-ness.

A Medical Mistake Cured by Faith in a god

I went to church yesterday with my husband. We do this at least once or twice  every few months, to give our donations. I am the atheist, but my husband remains a WASP, but really, he is the one who gets bored with the church rituals and singing, and gets annoyed with soprano voice and children’s out of tune singing.

After church, we went to the basement for some food  and baked goodies. Of course, for camaraderie and conversation.

The Pastor told us a story about the young boy who went to Sloan Hospital for some “belly tumor”. They operated on him  after an ultrasound and found nothing. They attributed the cure of that tumor  to  their faith  without ado.

I said, that must be a medical mistake.. the boy had nothing to begin with. But since, these old  church attendees are very devout,  I just said, I believe in science and there are a lot of medical mistakes, that I know  of when I was still actively practicing as an Adult Nurse Practitioner, reason being , a second and third opinion is needed when one is given a diagnosis, especially cancer. A biopsy is the gold standard to determine if  one has cancer or not, not an ultrasound or a cat scan. His story has some loopholes anyway.

However, there is not much to talk about. I leave it at that. We cannot teach old dogs new tricks, nor give medicine to a dead man.

I am finally relieved : I am now picky

 

 

12998594_977982485589652_4814844188819205758_n

A little patience goes a long, long way.

It was good that I did not drop the ball suddenly.

Planning is everything, a means to provide better things.

I am finally relieved as a chairperson, being Emeritus would be so much FUN.

I can do whatever I can to help, promote and propagate,

But, without much pressure from myself.

I am a type A – 1 personality, I like to do things yesterday and in a timely fashion.

Cannot stand procrastinators and lazy bones.

That is me.. I cannot change myself.

I did it my way.. Now show me you can do it too.

Kudos to all ! but without saying, I learned from my past experiences.

No more waste of my hard-earned money and efforts.

The right people are in order and ebullient with renewed passion.

I am very picky now, but please do not blame me.

Cheers to all!
