The Congo is Being Raped!!!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

rape-in-the-congoIn a pit – a hole in the ground … you are a fifteen year old Congolese girl who has been kidnapped from her village and now is being repeatedly raped, day after day after day. Now pregnant, the rapist soldiers release you and your family seeing the “bump” evidence of your pregnancy reject you as they blame you for bringing this situation of shame to them. True story and tragically not unique at all in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The REAL question is – why the hell we,  the Western world,  are not doing more to stop these atrocities? True there are international and United States, as well as European Union efforts to address this horrific situation but not enough – not nearly anything close to  a really concerted effort has begun to stop these heinous crimes against women, girls, men, boys and even babies. That is right – you read correctly – I tell you babies are being raped by Congo rebels and regulation soldiers too. The Congo has become the rape capital of the world, with most reported and obviously some not, acts of sexual violence on this planet. Now – do I have you full attention? Allow me to have you gaped mouth and cringing because if that is what it takes to make us all REALLY care – then here I go folks. I am NOT going to do the politically correct warning so that your delicate sensibilities might be spared from what I am going to share here – read it and know this effects every human being. Yes  – I tell you the REAL truth in saying there are massive predatory atrocities going on in the act of raping Congo citizens now – today – as you read this blog post. What are you going to do about it my dear readers?

Between all the many newspapers and periodicals I read, activists and human rights organizations I belong to and support – my knowledge of the Congo and similar atrocities has been long standing. Add to this the fact that BBC radio and NPR are in my homes and cars as my constant companions – well there you have the barrage of horrors I have been willingly exposing myself to concerning matters such as rape in the Congo. Hearing reports of infant and toddler girls being ganged rape and left for dead by boy soldiers and grown militia men is at times mind numbing. One asks over and over again – how and why? Trust me – there at times I just must put such REALLY daunting matters out of my mind and hence I do not expect you to do any differently. We all have REAL lives to lead – many pressing personal and professional tasks to attend to and often our own emergencies. However, no decent person can turn the proverbial “blind eye” to something as inhumane as mass and deliberate raping of an entire population. If you do turn away, not only will humanity suffer but that damn “slippery slope” of them today and G-d knows who tomorrow comes into play. A world where raping is the norm because you think “well – that happens there because they are  _____ ” is exactly how we all get diminished and I do not only mean in spirit. The Congo scenario is evil and equally destructive in many areas of international concern. To let an entire territory be ruled and controlled by rapist thugs depletes humanity and natural resources and financial support, growth and development is just global insanity. Yes readers – this is a tale of human destruction but also a national and international economic development – for a nation can not prosper where rape is massive and common place. Shocked are you that I am bringing financial topics into a post about rape? You betcha I am because that and sometimes only that gets action going from the powers that are in charge.

By the way, if your however  subtle and still unacknowledged racism is informing you even in the most remote parts of your mind that this is happening because it is Africa – stop because I will remind you of the mass rapes and murders in the Bosnian War by Serbians against Albanian Muslim women and girls. All right now that we have settled that issue – what say we all about the possible and yes unintended complicity that the United States and other donor nations have by continuing to give money to the Congo despite being quite aware of the rape and violence there? U.N. Envoy Rice faced these exact questions from human rights organizations and diplomats concerned that the Obama administration was not doing enough to  deal effectively with the many layers of corruption and violence – including mass rapes – in the Congolese nation. Please understand that I am REALLY not naive nor a knee jerk Liberal, “feel good” humanitarian. No indeed, but instead a somewhat sophisticated and REALLY astute observer that fully realizes not all international interplay is simply a matter of bad guys versus G-d and the angels. Surely we can not just pull back all aid in hopes that will end the atrocity in the Congo but what we can and must do is put the screws to these bastards. You know what I mean – not just tough talk but REAL action against the perpetration factions. Dear G-d … we bombed entire swaths of Iraq

in response to our tragic 9/11 attack. Are you telling me we can not use our mighty military U.S.A. and allies force to stop baby rapist? Come on folks – lets get REAL as they say. We can and we should act decisively in the Congo or anywhere else where horrific violence is happening. If we do not – the proverbial “bite on our ass” will happen  because voids will be filled and not be friends of ours. We leave open the REAL possibility that extremist will seize the moment – get in there and save the day, only to then co-op that besieged population into become sycophantic tools that are then also enemies of ours. Why not – after all, who would you appreciate if saved from such horrors? Those that gave marginal assistance and lip service or those that used brute force to destroy your rapist? We were slow to get involved in an effort to stay the tide of  Rwanda genocide  until 1994 and then the United States and others were reticent to intervene and stop the horrors in Bosnia-Herzegovina until 1995.  I can tell you that both made me passionately irate as the human detritus accumulated during those major world crisis. Admittedly being a Jew who has maternal Albanian Muslim family made me even more acutely aware of that situation but in no way was my purely logical application standards tweaked by that part – no, instead I explained to all who would listen, that the world did not want those peoples to be left with absolutely zero choice but to allow our sworn enemies to be their salvation and new found friends as we left the door for such results wide open.  Fortunate for us and I am proud to say, Albanian Muslims defied that outcome and remained secular and not embittered – that burdened community found appreciation and hope in the eventual U.S. and ally involvement – deciding they were more nationalistically connected to the non Muslims in their country, then outside extremist Islamist. Anyone want to roll the dice on the Congo being similar in results? Not me!

Note: In my soon memoir,  Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Life!  all the amazing details on how I came to feel like a REAL citizen of this world came to be  – from my multi-faith and uniquely blended ethnic background to the “womb to tomb” activism that this life has presented to me!

America’s Children Want You to Know We Either Pay Now or Pay Later!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

School_HouseI sat nearly paralyzed with disgust and a profoundly deep sadness while listening to National Public Radio’s This American Life story [Sunday, 17 February 2013, #487] about Chicago Harper High School.  Look,  folks – as my many blog post reference – despite privileges, I am NOT naive nor ignorant about what REAL America is all about. My civil rights activist (late) Father’s insistence that we, his children, not be unknowing of those less fortunate and my own determination to not, while enjoying my life’s many luxuries and benefits, be a proverbial “ostrich with head in the sand” concerning our national disenfranchisement of so many groups, has all kept me keenly aware of these unequal and REALLY divided States of America. While international concerns must and should be addressed in relation to young people’s plights around the world, how can we ignore or marginalize that which occurs routinely in our inner city neighborhoods? At best that makes us hypocrites and worse it makes us dangerously racist elitist and self defeating idiots. This great nation needs all its citizens to be attended to, guided and made whole – every life interconnects either directly or peripherally in some way and at some time. This post is not a liberal feel good manifesto or guilt trip – it is specifically a REALLY blunt assertion that all is not well for America’s young people and the end result will affect us all.

America wake up – our children are being killed and gun violence is only a method but the disease is deeper and more insidious. While indeed better enforcement of gun laws will obviously eliminate some access to deadly weapons, the REAL problem is our national malaise, indifference and even moronic uncaring disconnect from those other than our own insulated group.  Violence is an everyday milieu  – our movies, television shows, video games, etc. all glorify the “might is right” tonality that inspires action at all costs in our young people. Obviously much needs to be done to curtail the ideas that social media promotes in the lives of America’s youth but there are more fundamental REAL problems that must be addressed as well. There is a REAL war going on in this country – our young people are fighting for their lives and no foreign entity – no terrorist extremist is involved; the enemy is within – it is us and if left unattended this cancer will spread to all of us for in the loss of one, the demise of many comes to eventual fruition.  Do not delude your bourgeois mind into thinking it is “those people” who have such problems in their schools as that highlighted on NPR American Life this week … no, no, no – it is not drug ridden, sloven lazy communities that this report focused on.  Certainly not wealthy and for the most part struggling parents and neighborhoods have been the center places for horrific and ongoing student violence but many are hard working and striving for that all glorified “American dream“. There is at most schools, as with Harper High School, dances, football and for this Chicago school and other similar the most amazing, devoted and super heroic teachers/staff – yes my dear readers, the REAL average U.S.A. high school experience at play. Yet students die routinely from gang violence and fear walking home or sitting in parks or even their own front porches – can we really tolerate losing an entire generation to such tragic endings? Trust me – we all pay $$$ – coming in or going out … why not just face the hard facts and get to work funding outreach and empirical studies to get to the base root of this American tragedy? Put the money into these children in productive ways and then you will not need to spend tax dollars prosecuting, jailing and caring for them long term in hospitals, etc.. If not the moral imperative as your impetus, than let the practicality at hand rule your decisions on this national matter of urgently needed action!

P.S. In my soon memoir, Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Life! I will explain why my husband and I despite planning on private school and (G-d willing) Ivy League University educations for the children we struggled to have so late in life, both REALLY believe [as my parents did] that all Americans should contribute to a national education system. Real estate geography should not determine a child’s quality of education in this nation. After all, “separate but equal” was declared inherently unconstitutional in 1954’s Supreme Court case, Brown v. Board of Education … by the way, my activist father said my being born and that wonderful legal finding made 1954 a REALLY fine year in history – at least to him and my Mother!!!

A Wedding Anniversary Tale: How NPR, Jaguars And Eagles Got Me Married!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

Our Wedding 2003A REALLY good looking guy walks into a diner and … sounds like a set up line for a joke but no joking here – the love of my life, Chester Michael Eliasz-Solomon did just that August 2003 and made me his wife just a few months later on 29 November 2003. Yes indeed, my blue eyed Prince and I married on a snowy Saturday evening in formal attire surrounded by REAL family and friends. Everyone was dressed in gowns and tuxedos – all in my chosen color theme of shimmering black and white – with red and white rose flowers for all attendants that were the choice of my groom. I still am moved and flattered when recalling the words my soon to be husband spoke when he first saw me walk down the aisle; “I have NEVER seen or known a more beautiful woman in all my life!” Our wedding video shows us both with tear filled eyes that express the pure joy that we two felt at being so blessed to be joined in holy matrimony; Photos taken at French themed wedding dinner that followed make evident the glowing passion we have for one another. Now you are surely wondering – what National Public Radio, Jaguar Cars and the Philadelphia Eagles Football Team have to do with our ninth wedding anniversary – of course, I am going to tell you my darling readers. No – not every detail – that full absolutely amazing story is being saved for my  memoir, Heiress Mommy … a Modern Super Woman Life!, but still sharing here enough to make you all know that REAL and true everlasting love does happen when one least expects it. Prepare to do the “Oh My G-d” exclamations because our story is definitely that and so much more.

I think we all know that moi is a bit of a “snob” – only in the good sense in that I am also quite egalitarian. I do readily admit to adoring the finer things in life but singularly because of quality and not status. As such, I do NOT like diners or chain restaurants or other similar middle of the middle type food establishments – certainly NEVER a place similar to those decidedly “un-hip” and far from/totally not “trendy” and definitely NOT in any way upscale venues frequented by often referred to loathsome miscreants [that they apparently keep manically posting photos of/likes for on their Facebook pages] you have read about in my posts. None-the-less, there were circumstances beyond my control placing me in that location during summer 2003 and there it was that I found my true love. Widowed three years prior after twenty years of a good and solid marriage, I was not looking for a second trip to the altar but love rushed in and REALLY swept me off my feet in a suburban diner – where normally I would NEVER have been under any usual occurrences. Meant to be is how I see it because despite the serendipity nature of our meeting and my best efforts to not get involved, I fell head over heels in love with the most amazing man in the world not very long after the day we met and  first chatted about NPR, Jaguars and Eagles Football.

I am a naturally gregarious friendly type – love people and enjoy interesting conversation. Me being me, I asked blue eyed Prince if the Jaguar parked outside was his – my own latest Jaguar car being a [bought with my own cash by me/for me] brand new champagne colored 2001 XKR convertible with custom tires and his a “starter” Jag X-type, which he proceeded to tell me was leased. Actually it turned out that we both had acquired our cars at the same Main Line, Philadelphia dealership. Hmmm – “leased” Jag I thought … still, it showed good taste in cars – which I uncharacteristically for a female know lots about. Thank G-d cute guy made no mention of a juvenile affection for Volkswagen so called “Beetle Bug” [yes my dear followers, yet another Michigan miscreant 50 year old loser lady reference, lol]. Noticing this sweet voiced fellow was reading an Eagles Football Team’s new hometown stadium brochure, I then mentioned that I was a very proud born and bred Philadelphian and I loved football and all sports in fact. That began a serious conversation about team loyalty – seeing how intelligent and well spoken my new acquaintance was, I asked if he ever listened to my favorite radio sports show on NPR, “Only a Game!” – I explained that this listening pleasure combined erudite thinking with well thought out sports analysis, which for me was best of two worlds. Prince guy answered no but he liked NPR and would be sure to tune into my suggested listening choice ASAP. Now I would love to tell you it was only my keen mind and sports acumen that hooked this cutie but you know how men are … here I will only vaguely admit and allude to what my darling later told me he thought as I walked away towards the diner’s lavatory in my form fitting black Capri pants and little white summer top – something like “Wow, I would like to get to know her BETTER …”. Be good dear readers – whatever blanks you are filling in are probably true and maybe – just maybe – the full thought my guy was having will be detailed in my memoir. Suffice it to say, this fine gentleman tells me it was the full package – what he describes as my élan – my mind, body and soul that had him think he must act on his intuitive feelings and ask me out then and there.

Why don’t we get together for drinks or dinner some time and continue our conversation?” was cute guy’s suggestion. I explained that life for me was complicated at that moment and being widowed so recently – well, I was not sure. Cleverly, blue eyed Prince quipped back that he was not proposing marriage but just a friendly get together – and so we exchanged telephone numbers on back of diner’s business cards. It took a week but we did get together and were never apart after that – daily meet ups and travel in that “starter” Jaguar of his, multiple phone calls every day, long letters and a REAL almost instantaneous knowing that we two were meant to be husband and wife. We shared our REAL life stories – each full of blessings but also sorrows – agreeing, as I put it, that each of us had suffered more than some but less than most. My darling loved my biography and still, as then, expressed an amazement and appreciation for my REAL optimistic love of life. I admired his decency and brilliance – his goodness and kind manner. Needless to say, we found the other adorable – a REAL mutual admiration and attraction developed quickly and so it was that, as I detailed in my blog (9 September 2012)  post “My Own 9/11 Story”, Chester Michael proposed to me on 11 September 2003, with a magnificent diamond ring he designed himself just a few weeks after we met. Fast you are thinking – well my friends – when it is REALLY right, it is the only thing to do … seize the moment, Carpe Diem, as the saying goes. I accepted the beautifully worded [poem included] proposal and we immediately began planning our formal elegant wedding – my new finance doing most of that task and thus allowing me to feel the security and confidence that he REALLY wanted me as his life partner because NOTHING and NO ONE would prevent our marrying. I can not wait to share all of this truly glorious tale in my memoir – for ours is a REAL love story that will inspire many in that we thwarted all those naysayer and evil doer miscreant types to do as we believed G-d intended by becoming husband and wife.

He is strong and handsome, and I love him for that, and I admire him and I am proud of him,

but I would love him without those qualities. If he were plain, I would love him; if he were a

wreck, I would love him. And I would work for him and slave over him and pray for him and

watch by his bedside until I died. Yes, I think I love him merely because he is mine and is masculine.

The Diaries of Adam & Eve, Translated by Mark Twain

[For my husband, Chester Michael Eliasz-Solomon: Happy 9th Wedding Anniversary my darling

… the best is REALLY yet to come!!!]

P.S. Ours was a civil ceremony  – having always wanted to add a religious aspect, we are now involved in planning a Rabbinical marriage vow renewal ceremony and grand celebratory fete on our next wedding anniversary  … by then we will [G-d willing] be living more months as California residents and so either in our new hometown or that which we recently began giving serious consideration to – the possibility of a castle somewhere in Europe, with a few hundred of our REAL family and friends, we will again say “I do … promise to REALLY love, TRULY honor and COMPLETELY cherish until death do us part and then be joined throughout eternity”!

Everybody Loves A REALLY Big Bird – Then Why Does Mitt Romney Want to Pink Slip PBS?

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

I understand Big Bird’s feathers were a bit ruffled on account of Mitt Romney’s Presidential debate reference last week – too bad – don’t be sad – just get glad you are so damn important in 2012. It is not just about you Bird but all those U.S. jobs that your kind generates that Romney and company want to eliminate because, well I guess, we taxpayers just can’t afford it anymore …what?

Look I get it … the extremist right wing can not tolerate a neighborhood like Sesame Street any longer. It is quite understandable because after all we have two obviously gay guys, Bert and Ernie living together – come on, those single twin beds are not REALLY fooling anyone, we have that homeless begging pest Oscar Grouch, unhealthy eating fat Cookie Monster, a Hispanic neighbor lady, African American men and then the damn Big Bird [who the hell knows what gender that thing is] plus a sundry of other very non-standard not REAL American types.

It makes perfect sense to me that the GOP wants to cut PBS funding and along with it that intelligentsia,  bookish NPR. Because we, the American people, can no longer support the obvious left wing brain washing that these venues are producing with all that tax payer money – STOP the madness now – kill the f***king bird!

Of course we also have to stop funding Head Start, Planned Parenthood, Pell Grants, Public Libraries, U.S. Post Office, Public Transportation and so many more of those supportive programs who are determined to help educate, make healthy and keep mainstreamed most citizens in our society because before you know it everyone will want a part of the American dream. It is just that simple – if you do not have a trust fund for private school nor a car to get you to and from book stores and money for concierge physicians – then why the hell do you think you are entitled to those things anyway? Get real America – the GOP says get off your ass now – get two or three minimum wage jobs and save damn you – then you too can be REALLY successful and finally be REAL Americans.

Now Tereza, what you are saying – that is cute rhetoric you write here but its just hyperbole – that is not REALLY what GOP wants for our great nation. Oh no – isn’t it I ask you? Maybe not cognitively but oh baby this scenario I describe is what will be the result if these extremist Republicans rule the day – I personally cannot explain because it is just too crazy an idea that anyone of any political party would want to diminish our nation to such an extent – why, why, why is the perplexing and truly unanswerable thoughts in my head concerning their plan. The answer must be fear – fear of an educated electorate and I suppose a real philosophy that only private ventures – money making corporations are the way for REAL  American success. Conservatives seem to have an irrational ,visceral hatred of all public sector venues … be it the arts, science or education – it seems antithetical to me that one can rally round our U.S.A. flag and yet be so against attempts to inform the whole American society via public broadcasting – that being the REAL inclusive America.

Now I truly believe the intelligent members of current GOP, like their more normal and logical precursors – as the type my very Liberal parents had as friends and admired and as some of my best friends who are Republican can be described as being – these folks are not anti PBS/NPR, etc.. What I do believe is present day GOP is catering – throwing so called “red meat” topics and ideas out to their lesser members – the unwashed who see things like intellectualism to be a threat and somehow anti-American. Shameful – would the great Republican U.S. President Teddy Roosevelt had allowed right wing evangelical extremists to stop his national park efforts – certainly not. Would hero General U.S. President Eisenhower allowed his fellow Republicans to force him to war monger against the Communist post WWII threat – no way – in fact he lectured against the military complex having too much power in our country. So why then are the leaders in today’s Republican party allowing themselves to be the so called Tea Party bitches – defunding things like Big Bird for G-d’s sake? Why indeed we must ask – the first most blatant answer is they want the masses [who are so often real asses] to elect them and the smart ones are quite willing to stoop to the ignorant, hateful, narrow minded level to do just that – get that base to the polls with promises of ending all perceived progressive, minority helping, liberal idea based government sponsored programs – even if these very folks are the ones who would most benefit from those exact plans. Listen – I sure as hell do not need free access for my children … blessed to be able to afford private educations, etc. but I and my wise husband are not stupid enough to think our opportunity to give our children an elite education will insulate us or them from a diminished populace. My babies are Au pair privileged – an educated woman who like myself and their Father guides them and exposes them to literature, the arts and more. I want all American children to have similar advantages – maybe not a well paid Au pair or governess or private school educations but still the very best public tax payer funding can offer. This desire is not totally nor singularly altruistic and certainly not bleeding heart Liberal on my and my husband’s part – while yes we both feel it is the moral thing to do, it is also because our privileged children must and will live in a nation with others less so and we want those others to be well  educated and productive as well – for our desire is that we and our children benefit from the greater good and to do that we do not mind – no we actually want to contribute to that goal via our tax dollars, as well as charitable contributions. No American citizen should have to depend on the largess of those of us able to be charitable – as wonderful and as beneficial as organization funded through charitable contribution are, the real fair and really equal set up must be a taxed based across the board community structure that our wise Founders envisioned in this grand scheme. Public education was a founding American principal and of course modernity means that must be expanded to more complete venues involving health care, higher education, arts, et al.. When did the GOP decide to break away from the lifting all boats theory that this great nation was based on for so long – are we not our brothers and sisters keepers any longer? Ask yourself – what good it does any of us to not have PBS, Sesame Street and such – those things that some among us have as their only free available entertainment and educational viewing opportunities. I am sad – heart broken that Big Bird is on the chopping block – yes even though I allow no one under three, except our Labrador, to ever watch TV.

Admittedly, I am a devoted lifelong Democrat – so surely I would only want you to vote for Democrat candidates no matter the issues but this is a do or die election because I REALLY believe not only is the big yellow bird’s life on the line if Romney and other like minded Republicans win in November 2012 but all our very existences. So PLEASE be a REALLY good neighbor & friend – sing it out loud like Telly & Ben Stiller did on Sesame Street – elect Obama for a 2nd term and help him help us by voting straight Democrat this year – ALL the birds will be tweeting a lot happier if you do – even our Republican kind I assure you!!!

P.S. In my 2013 memoir, Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Life! there will be a REAL explanation of how both PBS and NPR helped shape me – gave me hope & comfort during some very difficult times – so you see these things REALLY do matter!!!

The Tereza Effect™ !!!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

Definitely one of my most OMG blog post to date – read carefully my darling readers/followers because this is REALLY interesting and, as they say, one for the record. You see for some time now – quite flattering in fact – hubby dear and others in my life have suggested that in many good and positive ways I seem to effect people. I like to think and have been told repeatedly that my faith based life – ability to REALLY rally against odds and my successes have led others to do better and persevere. If my life can ameliorate others than my legacy is complete. All good stuff – right? I agree and as I have mentioned in other blog post, along with wanting to tell my REAL life story, this is one reason I even agreed to a memoir, Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Life! being published end 2013. I know you all see it coming – here it is – the dam fool miscreants I so often must reference have taken to attempts at being Tereza like – yep – I have had “Internet ninja” keep track and there are Facebook postings and photos sadly posturing as if these characters had REALLY worth while lives. So like with other issues – my “team” decided we MUST trademark The Tereza Effect™ and so it is as of 24 September 2012 [in U.S., EU & Canada] my husband and I, along with the 29 others, now own  [and yes miscreants – we WILL REALLY vigorously defend] that trademark. As with so much in my life – as so many noted about me – this means I managed to turn lemons into (sweet gourmet) lemonade again. Betting you readers want the details – as is always the case, I will do my best considering ongoing litigation/lawsuit against miscreants and law enforcement investigation restriction plus my book contract obligations. It is quite easy to decorticate the facade of those so full of pretense and obfuscation of their own misdeeds – if each of you were privy to all sent to myself, my husband and advisers – you too could easily analysis and surely agree with that which I detail here.

First, as someone studying law and on account of the constant hanging out with many of my own attorneys, I feel compelled to always fully disclose REAL facts and simply because, unlike the loser miscreants, I have a hold on reality – I will readily admit that these middle of the middle of the very middle folks have ok lives, although nothing I would want to claim as my own. They have jobs – all right, a kid or two might have McDonald’s as their only resume entry but what the hell – they work. Some even have four year college degrees [no Ivy League – a lot of community colleges in fact, but they did actually go to college – at least to some extent], they have what are for people like them probably relatively nice homes – they do budget trips [nothing grand mind you but still gets them out of the born & die same place syndrome for a week or two]. There seems to be a few – very limited – social activities … nothing special nor with any notable attendees and even though none will ever effect society, there are at least some one or two time “charity” efforts, although NEVER anything like the venues my husband and myself attend regularly – the many REAL fund raising and political galas nor any of the REAL political, social and community events myself and my husband participate in routinely. But it sounds a decent enough lifestyle, doesn’t it? Normally I and my husband would say bravo good people – best you can do and that is just fine but trust me when I write that these particular typical Americans are not to be championed. I believe most of you have read my posts that are very specific on these types and yes, unlike them or those you know similar, I back up ALL I write with REAL facts – even going so far as to have my law professors and legal team/friends review much prior to posting.

Yes mine is a REALLY blessed life – certainly, like most and maybe more than some – not without trouble, sorrow or strife. I have written extensively that my Jewish faith, amazing REAL family and friends and my own determination makes me possibly the happiest woman in the world – at least that is how I see myself. But it is a life where hard work and multi tasking is the norm – an eclectic life to be sure that includes scholarly pursuits, politics, REAL travel, charitable efforts, family responsibility, instrument playing, sports, exercise, etc., etc., etc.. Not easy to mimic if one is honest – I live it and yet when seeing this list am exhausted myself;  I am NOT bragging but being 100% truthful that as my parents wished/showed by example – mine is a REALLY busy and very full rich life and therefore a life REALLY well lived. I am complimented when hubby, family, friends and colleagues suggest I am a super woman of some kind … hubby even designed one with a big “T” on head gear as my 1st Facebook timeline photo last month. I do not believe in false modesty – just as offensive as bragging but there are many like myself who attempt to “do it all”. The REAL issue here is that pretense like that which The Miscreants™ [trademarked 27 August 2012] demonstrate is just that – a faux attempt to establish themselves as worthwhile beings. True not everyone can have a REALLY exciting life nor does everyone want the extreme highs – amazing and exciting opportunities I have been blessed with but it is exactly the lesser among us that belie their protest about their portrayed happiness that indeed renders them dangerously delusional. In other words, it is these types so hell bent on mimicking those of us blessed with REALLY worthwhile existences [of varied styles] who are the usurpers and drains on society. Those most self satisfied are those least able to grow – their only means of ego satisfaction is false self aggrandizing or lie filled demeaning of those REALLY happy and achieved.

There is nothing in the world more shameful than establishing one’s self on lies and fables.                                                                     —Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

… sadly The Miscreants™ we deal with and others are guilty and prone toward establishing their worth on fables – no more better example than that which I detailed in a previous blog post concerning my husband’s ex wife of nearly 20 years – this high school graduate [which she admitted as education level in Court under oath] for years claimed both a Bachelor & Master Degree – even going so far as to include that on her daughter’s lied filled college application. Even more egregious, in my opinion, is when these parents allowed their youngster to believe they are so talented as to have a chance for careers in college football or as a REAL writer – while both a minimal possibility, never an only REAL option that should be promoted – indeed this has been the case with our troublesome pests offspring [to say the least, the results have been less than impressive  – by anyone’s definition]. As far as the supposed relationships – much ballyhooed “friendships’ between these individuals, that too  is a joke – for all have said REALLY terrible things about one another … the REAL truth is that both myself and my husband have heard harsh and quite mean gossip [saying another of the women were tramps, the others marriage not good, their was no real faith in the others life, etc.] and even hateful comments [for instance when I called one of these evil people to tell him that another’s daughter had been killed in a June 2010 car accident, he suggested she & her other 2 children should have been also – I know OMG] from each of the now reunited  “family” contacts – as far as the non relative couple, my husband assures me the woman he calls THE REAL Devil’s Daughter™ [yes, trademarked by us 27 August 2012 + THE Devil’s Daughter™] spewed insults about them for many years. So you see all is DEFINITELY not REAL in these miscreant’s life and I have somehow effected them so deeply as to inspire these insincere new-found communal relationships – such power hubby and I have to cause a forging of previous enemies. Now do not misunderstand – I am not being a snob – there are many REALLY good and worthwhile individuals who live simply and give much to this world. I have even suggested to my husband, friends and colleagues that the miscreants we deal with have in their own small minded way been minimally productive [by the way, most in my life think I am being far too generous with that analysis]. The problem is that like far too many THE Evil Doers Club™ [yes again, we trademarked that too, 27 August 2012, along with THE REAL Evil Doers Club™] types are not being genuine and I seem to be the provocation as of late for their angst and activity toward proving worth and value for themselves. Many have joked – especially my erudite husband who knew these troublesome bottom dwellers all his life, that at the very least I can be comforted that I inspire them to dress somewhat better, help the hairdressing industry by having the women actually do something professionally with their hair [except his ex wife who obviously still does what he describes as henna home rinsing], exercise a bit, pretend to read [one liked Wall Street Journal on her Facebook page according to a friend of mine – seriously doubt scrap booking & Bubble Witch game playing addict chick ever read WSJ but whatever – maybe she will see article about moi next year there], actually be proud of their limited travel outside their hometown life, et al. – see I am REALLY making them better people all the way around. Of course also REALLY true – as my husband reminded me concerning my obvious considerable effect on these sad creatures is the idiom attributed to Jonathan Swift, “you can not make a silk purse from a sow’s ear“. The base sadness here is that if  like these miscreant types,  you only have a very few things to be overly boastful of and the need to show off the now and again adventures or minimal achievements, you are NOT REAL nor genuine nor worthy of praise – my life is abundantly exciting – maybe too much at times but all REAL.

Shall we get into even more pathological issues here ? – it is the OMG stuff my friends: After I wrote a few blog posts that admittedly were in small ways directed toward the miscreants but others not at all about them, these idiots decided to begin piece by piece proof of each and every delineated reference they assumed were about them. A bit scary in that they began even using my words – REALLY for instance and even the word blessed, as I so often do – additionally one of the husbands posted a first time compliment to his wife as a weak/bogus mimic of the many my erudite and REALLY in love with me husband does so often. Now I know they say imitation is a compliment but not with these types – it became just very surreal and quite laughable [my friends were hysterical]. Even G-d was not left out of their attempt to be like me … one posted a very anti-Semitic prayer [my Priest friend agreed] in an effort to show, I can only presume, that she did indeed reference such things – only after I suggested these miscreants have no REAL faith. Whenever I wrote concerning lack of something in their little world or an abundance in my own, these sad creatures posted a singular response of sorts … for instance, having mentioned my many nieces, nephews – biologically and assumed through friendships – they struggled to find a “family” picture for their Facebook page. What these types miss is it has to be REAL – natural – regular occurrence as it is in my life for such happenings to be REALLY poignant. Then there was their attempt to show they REALLY did have friends – not exactly true in line or comparable to my own huge, abundant and international friend/acquaintanceship base. They did this it seemed obvious by asking or at least prompting their Facebook groups to like or respond to postings – it was so sadly blatant an effort to be like me with my many Facebook interactions and REAL affectionate received comments. Also are the posting of their limited excursion photos, along with their one or two singular charity/career events … oy veh – such a pathetic effort and so dam transparent that I/we almost felt sorry for them. I even experienced a wee bit of guilt on account of spawning such effort from these bottom dwellers as they struggled to show their activities and pose for me. That guilt quickly and readily dissipated as no one ever asked them nor ever cared about them except to sue and prosecute as law enforcement sees fit for their libel, slander, defamation, harassment, copyright/trademark infringement, voicemail/internet threats and now possible cyber crimes [for either and/or creating/re-posting fake lie filled websites and “hacking”]. One must ask – why bother – mine is such a different and thank G-d more REALLY special life than theirs … tragically my advisers suggest either possible mental health illness, simple mindedness or just the run of the mill loser/envy mentality as the answers. No one can be sure but you readers must surely agree it is weird and very unseemly that individuals we are so much different than – and yes I must say better than in every way – would take their limited energies and resources in jeopardy to challenge myself and my husband. Easy to laugh at these jokers but let me assure you we take the threats they present quite seriously. Why would we not be concerned – three of my dear gal pals – one a psychiatrist and two psychologist think these individuals might very well suffer from or have personality disorder issues or worse … additionally one of these characters son brags [we think DEFINITELY exaggerates or possibly is pretending]  to date Jews – at the very least interesting, as I am Jewish and my husband not [not yet anyway]. Another’s – shall we say – less than impressive vulgar daughter locked her Twitter page after my husband reproached this insignificant young woman for lies to spewed there about us … are you kidding me? a locked twitter page, lol.   One of my L.A. associates told us a miscreant put a reference to Pavlov [which someone of her limited education would not understand is really a reference to classical conditioning]  on her minimally read Facebook page – seriously – who is the responding canine in this tale – surely the miscreants I am sure you agree. See – OMG – right?

So in conclusion – an original is just that – original and thus unique. As the song I include here says, I am the one and only . Not for naught, I am definitely a unique original – as my “team” often expresses – these miscreant types can not ever be Tereza. I take that as a compliment but stress that others are the similarly unique and special but NOT the miscreants – they are common and tribe, troublesome and draining in that they fake life – never REALLY accomplishing much and even negating the small achievements they have managed by busying themselves with attempts to be me or someone else. Hopefully after lawsuits complete and law enforcement decides after investigation as to what charges – if any – are appropriate, these and other like minded types will never darken the REALLY wonderful landscape of my life in the future. To be 100% blunt – I doubt they will ever REALLY go away completely as my hubby believes the book, TV, movie, articles, etc. in the next year or two that show ours to be the REALLY successful and special life will [to paraphrase him] – drive them nearly mad with envy and confusion. Not to worry – we have a REALLY great publicist and amazing attorneys and the sweet internet ninja to thwart them and tame that beast. Stay tune my darling readers – this ride is not over yet!!!

P.S. I do not think they can mimic being an artist’s muse – here you see the original me, as I was painted and sketched by a dear gal pal artist – there are other paintings, photos, poems those equally talented have written about & dedicated to me that I will share in the future. I am humbled by the love, support and compliments that so many honor me with – thank you and know that I am deeply and sincerely grateful for each who rally to my side and lift me to such heights!

Note: The #30 trademark [as of 24 September 2012] I referenced above, that hubby & I now own is POTUS Tara Edwards-Saks™  … she is the main character in my 3 minute fiction entry to NPR [last Sunday, 23 September 2012] – we trademarked the name on account of an adviser suggesting I write a novel or series about this 1st Jewish Female U.S. President, which I am giving serious consideration.

P.S.S. THIS IS A SPECIFICALLY DIRECTED TUTORIAL FOR THE LOSERS IN MICHIGAN, CHICAGO & PENNSYLVANIA WHO THINK THEY ARE CLEVER – AS SOMEONE INFORMED HUBBY & I, THEY [AGAIN] MISUNDERSTAND THE LAW – YOU CAN NOT JUST SAY SOMETHING IS TRADEMARKED IDIOTS – YOU NEED TO FILE APPLICATION & PAY HERE IN U.S., AS WELL AS EU & CANADA – AS WE HAD DONE FOR US – IF YOU WANT IT TO BE REAL.
