Carter's Thoughts and Perspective

I will start off with my introversion. I am a thinker, I enjoy thinking of various subjects and obtaining more knowledge to continue my thoughts as a result of me being an introvert. I enjoy quiet times with myself and my thoughts, reflecting on all that I have read or discovered that day. I enjoy debating any topic under any subject with anyone that is just as passionate about debates as a I am, for my mind has given out on doing it alone...Anyway this is a place where I will post my views on current topics either political or not, on movies and classic films, and on other *random issues and topics. This includes lgbt issues (I do have lesbian pride). I will post indie rock songs and other videos that I feel in need of exposure.

Other blog: R A C I S M: Providing/Provoking Critical Thought

*Random: History, Psychology, Nature, Quotes, Personal Thoughts, Journals, Political News, News, Art, LGBT Related, Vintage, Writing*

Future of Bredon Horde assured by £5,000 grant

THE largest haul of treasure ever found in the UK, which was discovered in Worcestershire three years ago, will be on display for years to come thanks to a generous grant from a museum charity.

The stash of almost 4,000 Roman coins was found in Bredon Hill by metal detecting enthusiasts in June 2011.

Now Worcestershire County Council’s archive and archaeology service has been handed a £5,000 grant by the Treasure Plus programme, meaning work can commence to conserve the find – popularly known as the Bredon Hoard.

Research undertaken by the archaeology and archives service alongside the British Museum has suggested the hoard was buried nearly a century after it was accumulated – the only stash of its kind ever found in Britain. Read more.

I just want to let you all know that I am fascinated by the 18th century Europe and the World Wars eras, but I can only blog so few of each’s history.

Yesterday Tumblr suggested that I follow a white supremacy blog…

Fascination with history does not equate to supporting Fascism, scientific racism, and white nationhood

Why is everyone obsessed with glorifying introverts on this website?

There’s nothing WRONG with being an introvert but it’s not necessarily better than being an extrovert. 

And I know perfectly well that not all introverts are stand-offish assholes, but the ones on tumblr almost seem like they’re TRYING to perpetrate that vibe.

Has it ever occurred to you that maybe the reason why nobody hangs out with you is because you’re such a pretentious douchebag all the time and act like you’re better than everyone?

No it never occurred to me.

George Takei became famous for his role in Star Trek as Mr. Sulu, but in the last decade, he’s drawn followers who admire him because of who he is—not just who he has played. The new documentary about his life is called To Be Takei.
He joins Fresh Air to talk about growing up in a Japanese internment camp, avoiding stereotypical roles, and coming out as gay at 68. 
Here he explains why he was closeted for most of his life: 

The thing that affected me in the early part of my career was … there was a very popular box office movie star — blonde, good-looking, good actor — named Tab Hunter. He was in almost every other movie that came out. He was stunningly good-looking and all-American in looks. And then one of the scandals sheets of that time — sort of like The Inquirertoday — exposed him as gay. And suddenly and abruptly, his career came to a stop.That was, to me, chilling and stunning. I was a young no-name actor, aspiring to build this career — and I knew that [if] it were known that I was gay, then there would be no point to my pursuing that career. I desperately and passionately wanted a career as an actor, so I chose to be in the closet. I lived a double life. And that means you always have your guard up. And it’s a very, very difficult and challenging way to live a life.

July 28th 1794: Robespierre et al. executed

On this day in 1794, Maximilien Robespierre, Louis Antoine de Saint-Just, Georges Couthon and many of their peers were executed by guillotine in Paris. Robespierre, Saint-Just and Couthon were leading figures in the French Revolution and were radical Jacobins. They served on the Committee of Public Safety, which ruled France during the bloody ‘Reign of Terror’ which saw mass violence and executions of ‘enemies of the revolution’. There was a coup against the Committee on July 27th 1794, which prompted a reactionary movement against the bloody policies of the Reign of Terror. For their role in the violence, Robespierre, Saint-Just and Couthon were executed.

Parents need to learn yelling at their kids does not do anything but leave scars on them. If you have a problem you sit down and talk like civil human beings. Yelling gets you nowhere. Please remember that for all you future parents. Be the change.

Yes not all kids respond to yelling and spanking/whipping [fear] as something “positive” for them. Some kids only need you to sit down and talk to them, they will understand.
