CASSIUS CLAY’S “IN YOUR FACE TEE SHIRT” FOR BASKETBALL GAMES AND RUGBY FOOTBALL TRAINING SESSIONS

Looking after Hollywood’s future box office stars, with unique stories for the world, for California economy’s interests is what this blog post is about. Keeping such stars alive, could prove to be a challenge–hence this post.

Wow! Cassius Clay‘s In Your Face official tee shirt, in military khaki green issue, would make a great tee shirt to wear to basketball hoop games on the local block of Australia with mates or at rugby football, rugby league matches and Aussie rules football practice too each week.

I discovered it, on this post about innocent Australian young fella Daniel Assange of Melbourne. Go here to buy it for $19..99 to impress your friends and family, and make your hood a little bit more colorful and fun–like how a community of sporting champions, roll and celebrate cool people.

Daniel’s precious life and youthful potential is currently being threatened and bullied when he’s an innocent Australian young person of the world. Shocking stuff! This tee shirt is very relevant in New Zealand and Australia right at this second as well as All-ways Being relevant in American hoods and South Africa hoods too equally any day of the year. It’s a symbol of greatness and fairness, apparently.

WE HAVE ALMOST REACHED 2.7 MILLION TOGETHER

It’s hard to believe that we continue to make history here in Hollywood on this first ever entertainment blog created daily by a hori (Maori- Kiwi) of Los Angeles. Tomorrow we all would have reached the 2.7 million benchmark on Horiwood.Com. Who would have thought? Certainly, not me.

Of that I have you all to thank. It’s your success really.

PRESS BOARD: HILLARY CLINTON AND A KIWI BBQ for MRS HILARY RODHAM CLINTON via SHOWMAN and CHEEKEE MONKEE KIWI POLITICS by JOHN KEY


Wellywood humor to Washington DC, mai Peremia (Prime Minister) is having fun playing a Middle Earth Knight today for a Damsel in Popular Stressful Demand:

This a post brought to US by  TV3 News: (allegedly a Canadian independently owned TV station in New Zealand, whose news features Mrs Clinton, looking very Camelot Jackie O with a Sons of Anarchy advertisement that accompanies the independent news story. Don’t Canadians add so much to New Zealand News coverage. I think so anyway.

They give an independent worldview within NZ’s shores…  sorta like the new tides of democracy crashing against free beach?, Middle Earth shores. Always a picture of democracy really.

Chess Board: Cheeky Monkey Politics by John Key.

HEADLINE: Key wraps Clinton’s Wellington visit with intimate BBQ - story by Charlotte Tonkin, LOLs! by me.

“Hillary Clinton is arguably the most powerful woman in the world – just four steps down from the presidency itself.

When she travels, she travels with an entourage befitting her status.

Today, in and around the Beehive there was no security measure too small to ensure the Secretary of State’s safety. LOL!

There was pacing, prodding, searching and sniffing.

BULLYING CRITIQUE AND BARACK OBAMA HAS A WORD FOR TEENS WHO IDENTIFY AS GAY

To think across cultures fairly is when bullying ceases in all its forms.

It does get better when no teens of the world are bullied.

Courage to not fit in – by telling all of the truth on what bullying is in many forms.

Bullying is not Love. Love sees and values all human life, through the constructed veil of any label. – Horiwood

In 2002, 1513 teens total, were lost to suicide aged 15-19–US Statistics

Between July 12th to August 13, 1500 British soldiers lost their lives–Stats

98,000 is the median number listed of  Iraqi civilians (not soldiers) who were killed during the US. Iraq war – many of these women, children and teenagers.-Stats

Bullying of anyone is wrong. Just because someone is different, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have equal opportunity to add their talents to American life and culture. This is Barack Obama‘s message that I totally agree with. He implies teens who identify with being GLBT are talented.

[Subtext of the speech to the gay global community - bring your pink dollars of the world to America. Spend them with us. Jokes. And a good idea perhaps.]

GAY TEEN BULLYING – A WOMAN WAITS AT A BUS STOP IN WEST HOLLYWOOD – 10.20.10

It is the essence of wisdom to save lives — King Solomom

When teens are the focus of a sparkling campaign, the elderly of any community are not excluded–Horiwood

A woman waits at a bus stop in West Hollywood, on a rainy day. She is a double minority in West Hollywood.

Gay bullying is a topic consuming Americans right now (also politicians of America). Hilary Clinton gave a very strong message on the topic to gay teens.

If you live in West Hollywood – gay bullying can be defined like this. The young man on this bus stop poster for a 2Exist underwear campaign, has a message for teens who identify with being gay. The message as a model, is “to exist, buy these underwear.” Clever with maximum visibility in a big spend campaign where this image is plastered everywhere in West Hollywood and Hollywood at the time of writing.

The truth is, within the gay community, if you do not have a body that looks like this and you’re a teen, the chances are, you are most likely to be bullied within gay culture’s hierarchies, by someone who does. That goes with gay culture.

For all gay teens being bullied. If you want to identify with being gay and not be bullied –  Hit the gym. That message is also as real as Hilary Clinton’s message. If you are a depressed gay teen, go here to watch her message.

Smile! Hit the gym. And the golden rule for all teens – “no glove. no ‘love.’ That’s a start in not be bullied and valuing your own life. Not being bullied starts with this golden rule, for all teens anywhere, being bullied.

Finally, the woman in the picture above, her chances of being bullied in West Hollywood, by being ignored and not included, are perhaps going to be higher on a daily basis of social behavior than any gay teen will experience a day in West Hollywood. Food for thought, when talking about bullying within society overall.

My point is. All bullying is wrong, and consideration in “a liberty nation” should be practiced more from all peoples towards others, regardless of sex (gender), ethnicity, body types, hair color, or hair volume or no hair at all status, religious preference, sexual preference, social status, employment status, physical looks, age (ageism)or the language that people speak as a first language. These topics of bullying, all exist in West Hollywood, at the time of writing. As they do, in any community of people, livng alongside each other. They all need work, along with gay teen bullying across America too.

Peace ya’ll.  This image of the sky, taken directly above this bus stop’s location. A different view, just by tilting the camera above the same bus stop on Fairfax & Santa Monica. Camera angles preferences are deceptive, we need to show the whole picture, on all issues as media and good residents of America with a view for all people. This is true equality also. Snapped today while looking up for inspiration.

He.ck.Art. – Heck Yeah! :)

TIRED OF BULLYING STORIES TOO? TIME TO PUT A LITTLE LOVE IN OUR HEARTS

True fact: The world was economically bullied by economists and politicians past, drunk on spend, overinflated egos when they held the reigns, who weren’t honest about the state of the world’s economy for a decade. They misled their people, the world over. Now many nations have new leaders, who are not at fault, for the problems they inherited from the past guard.

Such previous leaders – that helped inflate a global economy to then  implode – cast everyone in a role today, to be bullied with economic constraints and restraints outside of anyone’s control now. I am writing this within America today as the front page story of the nation’s Capitol’s newspaper, runs with two storylines: Foreclosure Nation and Kids are Hungry. Though factual and true, these are not things to be proud of, and tout like front page news. I love the honesty though. Refreshing, to rebuild.   

These two stories upset me. I see a graveyard of peoples dreams. Set backs, dreams now in a state of hibernation. America’s future and dreams now, kinda on pause, for these once homeowners with kids. Something needs to be said.

RECOVERY IS THE ART OF AMERICAN REDEMPTION

~The way of the wise is to make whoopi Peace~

~Today’s hero is anyone who is actively recovering from a lite affliction or oppression and who has the audacity/ courage to be transparent and honest about it. Hot.~

For Eminem and Nelson Mandela from ‘Mother Theresa’s bedside 2010Recovery is to make peace with your demons, by calling them what they are without fear of judgement–in order to rebuild lives and better systems that serve more noble purposes for all people into the world–Horiwood, June 2010.

A fairy tale of Peace from World Politics and Hip Hop Music’s King: Once upon a time, one man was locked in a jail because he possessed courage of spirit and his conscience led him to fight death systems that had been created in his own country. Namely, apartheid.

Although this man was deemed an insubordinate criminal with criminal intentions by the finest judges in the land, (he perhaps just couldn’t pretend to be sub enough), he had diamonds on the soles of his shoes as a noble freedom fighter against oppression of his people’s better futures.

When the bullying sickness of greed in his country, had passed–blindness fell off the eyes of his countrymen.

They realized that their nation’s recovery and healing from this glaringly obvious sickness, was to release this man from jail–because in his soul that had endured suffering within an unfair justice system, were all the keys to free his country from a psychological hell guised as an artificial oasis–they had once created to gain an advantage for select few people–while marginalizing a majority.

This man is a man of Peace. His life story mirrors that of Joseph whose life was once cast in ancient Egypt. His name is Nelson Mandela. His life is a witness, that recovery rhetoric–is always a Peace rhetoric and that making Peace is the art of recovery for the world.

WHAT IS FREEDOM OF SPEECH?

According to Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia, Freedom of Speech is:

Freedom of speech is the freedom to speak without censorship and/or limitation. The synonymous term freedom of expression is sometimes used to indicate not only freedom of verbal speech but any act of seeking, receiving and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used. In practice, the right to freedom of speech is not absolute in any country and the right is commonly subject to limitations, such as on “hate speech“.

The right to freedom of speech is recognized as a human right under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and recognized in international human rights law in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). The ICCPR recognizes the right to freedom of speech as “the right to hold opinions without interference. Everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression”.[1][2] Furthermore freedom of speech is recognized in European, inter-American and African regional human rights law.

It is different from and not to be confused with the concept of freedom of thought.

‘For freedom of speech in specific jurisdictions, see Freedom of speech by country.

For other uses, see Freedom of speech (disambiguation).’

JASON MRAZ TAKES ON THE TOPIC OF GAY BULLYING, WITH SOME EXTRA NOTES

What is behind bullying? In my [limited] experience of being bullied [hello, reality check... I've never lived in Darfur or Chad], I have been bullied, judged, intimidated or abused … because of plain old jealousy.

Or in other words, people will always bully someone they think is having more fun, or more freedom than they are. Period.

With those thoughts in mind, Jason Mraz takes on the topic of gay bullying at the Harvey Milk breakfast. Says Mraz via his myspace:

“When I was in high school, I experienced being bullied. For whatever reason, there were a few students that enjoyed calling me “faggot” as I walked thru the lunchroom. On one occasion, just before graduation, I was in the wrong place at the wrong time and picked up a few punches, kicks and scrapes to add to my story. I never knew why the handsome lads called me names or felt the need to bully me, but it happened and I let their actions contribute a great deal to my moving away from that community. 

Shortly after the row, my best friend came out, sharing with his friends and family that he was gay. In my small town, this was uncommon and since then I’ve considered my friend to be the bravest man in the world. Aware of the hate within our community, I was afraid my friend might be inviting trouble to his door – but that never stopped him from being fully expressed. 

This is why I am actively seeking equality for the whole. When all of us are acknowledged as the human equals that we really are, there will be no space left for bullying. It will no longer be wrong to choose one thing over another. Equality and Separation cannot exist in the same space.

On Friday morning I attended the Harvey Milk Diversity Breakfast, a 1000 person event to acknowledge the late Harvey Milk, the first openly gay elected official. The event marked what would’ve been the 80th birthday of the activist and celebrated those who are his living legacy, those committed to anti-discrimination for all.”

Gay bullying happens regardless of race, age, religious, political or sexual preference. Meaning, it happens within the gay community too. So this message applies to all people. It’s a good one.
