Still The Truth – Infection – A Reflection

These little reflections Still The Truth and Infection were authored by Akiane kramarik between the ages of 7-11 in her book titled My Dream Is Bigger Than I – Memories of Tomorrow – Part Six Page 241 – “You will need your own copy of this book to view the full text of this poem.  I limit quotes for the purpose of discussion and to follow copyright guidelines that allows for limited quotes.”

The featured image I choose for this reflection is of my son during our epic road trip a few years ago sitting on a very large dinosaur which thank goodness is not a real live dinosaur…I will now quote from Akiane’s reflections…In The Truth Akiane writes her well known and loved reflection – “The Truth is still the truth— even if it stutters”…In Infection Akiane writes…”infected faith” leaving out the opening part of this reflection I quote a little more…”not even the smallest component of the Supreme can be known”…Wow! I am in awe of the wisdom in Akiane’s penmanship at such a tender age from the ages of 7-11…The truth can often hurt particularly when for many of us myself included accepting the truth is often hard to accept…Truth can reduce us to tears and help us to soar to great heights…Truth also sets us free as is said in sacred scriptures…”The truth shall set you free”…Sadly many today do not know truth or cannot recognize truth and as such many believe only what they want to believe in what I call “infected faiths” of many different forms… I quote “infected faiths” to show that I borrow that from Akiane’s amazing reflection titled Infection which talks about infected faith and how through the lens of infected faith mankind cannot know any part of the Supreme meaning the Supreme being the God of life…When we do not know truth or recognize truth it is then often very difficult or impossible to navigate reality which is often very different than the lies many of us myself included are often led to believe…Lies and deceit appear in many forms such as false hope provided by false Christ and false Mary religions and false hope from other such cults that abuse their followers yet fill them with false hope despite many in their ranks doing heinous crimes false hope that heaven is theirs is often not reality…For when we sin and I include myself in the collective soul of humanity…When we sin depending on the gravity and nature of the sin we can often cut ourselves out of the tree of life and can be added to the book of the dead…Now when we sin out of ignorance meaning drinking alcohol for the first time not knowing its offensive effects then driving and crashing your car…That movie though a bad show happened more out of ignorance not understanding the horrible effects of alcohol…Now once the bad effects of alcohol are known to you and I then we are morally obliged to avoid consumption of alcohol or to limit the consumption of alcohol so as to avoid sin or bad car crashes and other such bad shows that often do occur under the influence of alcohol…The same is true for abortion and birth control particularly contraception and contraceptive devices…Such practices are banal and are bloodletting practices that are hidden behind soft speech euphemisms…Sadly, many women embrace birth control practices out of ignorance and blood let out of ignorance…Ignorance in and of itself is a serious sin ignorance of the scriptures is ignorance of the true Jesus Christ…It is our sacred duty to avoid ignorance when possible…For ignorance causes many to sin out of ignorance which can cost them their eternal souls for all eternity…Ignorance can be bliss for a time in the sense that many often do not wish to hear or know the truth…Yet bliss often comes at a terrible price…I will now share another short story with my readers about an experience I recently had with the banking industry…Notice that I never name any offending parties out of respect for privacy and also to avoid bullshit allegations or accusations that I do things that I do not do…

Restrictions

I only use one bank card for bill pay etc…Consequently, I noticed recently that I was experiencing excessive numbers of declines for banal reasons…Now I know that fraud is real and yes many folks have been adversely affected by fraud…That being stated I have observed from my own personal experiences with the banking industry here in America that fraud detection policies are often abused so as to limit the scope of ability of decent hardworking bank card holders…Decent folks who would never do crime or anything fraudulent often experience feeling punished for the fraud of others…I have observed too that horrible people exist who are in positions of authority and power and who have the power to use our fine police departments and other enforcement departments like puppets on a string to arrest folks who are not dangerous in reality…This is my story…When I lived in South Dakota and would drive to Omaha Nebraska and other places… I was banking with a very large well known American bank at the time…I observed that my bank card would decline at least five times in one day obliging me to call the bank to request so called fraud alert restrictions be lifted from my bank card…In my conversations with average hardworking decent American men and women alike I discovered that the average American will experience fraud alerts once or twice or three or four times a month…Some folks never experience fraud alerts and others like myself experience excessive fraud alerts which feels like systemic abuse…I discovered then and now that this fraud alert system transcends all banks…This is across the board so it does not matter which bank you choose to bank with…These fraud alert systems come from a much larger corporation that provides this fraud alert system and services the entire banking system in America and around the world…Consequently, in my story anyway it does not matter which bank I bank with I have experienced excessive restrictions and fraud alert texts on my phone regardless of the bank itself as an entity…It is important I stress this because many workers are often not aware of their position in what I call a diabolical power play in a very bad game of chess that places workers in potential danger should a consumer go mental and do harm…Most recently, I was paying my bills and once I paid my bills I was getting ready to do my grocery shopping…I am no different that others…I live on a simple very strict budget and as such I see to it that my bills are paid on time and that I pay as much as possible in a contact less manner due to the pandemic of Covid-19…As a result after catching up on important bill paying…I received a text for an online grocery order I tried to do…I had successfully placed an online grocery order with the same company before but now I received a text to my phone from the fraud detection department…When I tried to respond to that text I got a message that my response could not be delivered which was very odd as I have full service on my phone including texting…This meant that I was now obliged to call the fraud detection department because the bank I currently bank with is closed on the weekends so not available for phone calls…The number on the back of my bank card is not legible so I had to get that number from the bank in the past and add it to my phone contact list…So on Saturday I did indeed try that phone number but due to the hold time being excessively long more than thirty minutes on hold…I hung up exasperated and annoyed…The fraud detection department that is run by a very large corporation that is on the New York Stock Exchange lifted or removed the restriction then I proceeded to make my purchase…I then cancelled my purchase for a separate reason which is my right as a consumer to change my mind on a purchase…What many folks do not realize is this…When you do business with corporations such as banks that handle your money including your bank cards and fraud detection alerts…You are a shareholder by proxy something that I learned when I got my four year business degree from one of the top business schools in the nation and in the world… Their MBA program is highly competitive too and attracts many international students…A four year business degree from that school of business that I graduated from opens many doors…That being said part of my curriculum as a student was business law and ways policies and procedures are established and ways buyers and sellers procure goods and services for our markets…I also had an economics minor and as such I studied the money market equation and received a good education on economies of scale found in micro economics which covers behaviors and decisions of individuals and firms and their interactions on the grid of dispersing and allocating scarce resources. And macro economics which covers performance structure and behaviors and decision making procedures and policies for regional, national and global economics…No wonder that business school was competitive…You got quite an education which set many graduates up for success in life including many entrepreneurs and CEO material…After graduation I was in demand I was recruited by top companies who often promised young graduates like us the world but demanded too much of our time…Part of my training in that excellent business school was this…I also interviewed my potential employers…I observed my potential employers…One potential employer a large NYSCE Corporation scheduled an interview…I was obliged to wait very long for my interview the person doing the interview was a man about ten years older than I…I was not impressed and besides he was very obnoxious and rude a narcissist…I had all the details on that company and while he was impressed with my research and knowledge…I told him I was not impressed by how that interview was handled how I was obliged to wait longer than normal that during the interviewing process that man tried to intimidate me into accepting low pay for top notch work…I told him in a very professional Irish manner to shove that job up his ass that I was not impressed with his corporation…In building my own portfolio during my business career I was not easily impressed and I turned down many job offers…Gladly I finally accomplished building an impressive sales portfolio that can get me hired anywhere in the world…For the letters of recommendation and my impressive volume which was in the millions said it all…What more was there to say you hire me to develop and grow a client base and volume of business I will get that job done efficiently and effectively…I did so phenomenally well for a time that my portfolio which is impressive speaks for itself…That while the company I worked for went out of business during the time of the housing market crash in 2008…I had developed an impressive sales portfolio that gets me hired with ease…Just as my employer was going out of business I was raped and became pregnant which obliged me to move to another state as well…I had to start a new life on more than one occasion and what has not destroyed me has made me stronger and better for it…Now back to restrictions placed on our bank cards…So from one in the afternoon on a Saturday all the way through five am that Sunday…Granted I slept in between…I spent hours on the phone with the fraud detection company because the diabolical fiendish restrictions dance went like this…I would try to make a purchase…My card would get declined…I would contact fraud detection…It was determined there was no fraud on my bank card…I was told my card is fine and I am free to use my bank card… I would proceed to once again attempt to make my purchase only to get declined again…This went on all day…It drove me bat shit crazy…It is crazy making the way I was treated and the way some of my calls were handled whereby I was placed on hold then the same person would pick up again having not done a damn thing to help me…I admit it I told that shithead that all he was good at doing was being a professional dick head that he was probably playing with his small penis due to his porn addiction and not doing a damn thing to fix my bank card problem…The funny part is my comment got him thinking and he replied “I don’t think I am addicted to porn”…That was funny I have to tell you in that moment it was funny…What was not funny is how my calls were handled being lied to left and right and the amount of energy it took for me to rattle the cage of that horrible fraud detection corporation was exhausting…I walked to a local merchant to use my card that I was told could be used yet my card was being declined…I had the funds in the account so these declines made no sense to me…Of course I notice too that I have experienced excessive declines at times when my bank is not open to deal with this bullshit…My God it was like a three ringed circus…I got so angry with them and my anger was escalated by the fact that these assholes had no problem lying to me and acting like they fixed my bank card problem when clearly my problem was not fixed…Then on one of these phone calls I blew…Yes you can say there she blew…I was livid let me tell you…Now I am one of those folks who lets it all out…I let go of my anger I rage from time to time in a safe place and away from loved ones…I get my anger off my chest…Then I calm down and get on with my day…This situation escalated and triggered a very angry response in me…My readers I did it…My God I did it…I said things you should never say at the airport…I used threatening speech I was so angry…The funny part is this…I purposely choose not to own a gun and I would not know what to do with a machine gun either…I prefer not to be armed and dangerous to afford me the right to say things you should never say at the airport…Well these cunts got scared and did not love my threatening speech…This explains the lack of transparency so rampant today in large horrible corporations…Well after I blew and believe you me I blew a gasket…I contacted the local police department where I live…To their credit the PD where I live allowed me to go on record that not only did I blow a gasket that yes I said things you should never say at the airport…I told the local police exactly what I said in that moment…But that there is no other context or reason to believe I could ever act on such threatening words…I was given an incident number as evidence that these excessive declines that call me a fraud when no fraud exists compromised my mental health and as such caused severe anxiety in me and triggered in me a very angry response…I then called that nasty fraud detection corporation back and sincerely apologized for blowing a gasket as I did…I also provided them with my incident number that is now on file with the local police department naming this corporation as the source of my duress that under duress and intense pressure caused by restrictions that were clearly not needed I could not go grocery shopping…Never interfere with a feisty Irish Mammy who wants to use her little bank card to buy groceries to feed her family for if you do that she will blow a gasket…After apologizing for this the horrible woman I spoke to once more lied and falsely claimed that she could not fix or lift the restriction on my card that I would have to speak to my bank which was closed…To prove a point I proceeded to go to a local merchant and I politely explained what this fraud department was doing….So I tried to make a purchase with my card which they told me was ok to use…I got a decline…I then got on the phone once more with this nasty fraud detection corporation…The conversation went like this…I thanked the woman for answering my call…When she proceeded to read her script claiming that her scripted reply is to protect my identity…I replied as follows…There is no protection and thank you for socking it to me in a very professional scripted manner from a call center outside the USA…Obliging me to release my sensitive data to a country outside the USA while standing in a public place…I proceeded to say thank you for messing with my bank card via your vile software that uses a banal algorithm to randomly destroy people’s lives and set people like me up to fail…While I was telling her this an American male another customer could not shut his mouth and proceeded to call me a “Total Karen”…Whatever the fuck that means…I replied to that Jerk as follows you American shit head have no idea who or what I am…I further stated that unlike you I can speak the name Karen in ten languages…That unlike many American Shitheads I have a brain that I use and I am a total Irish Woman whose name is not Karen…I told that dip shit on no uncertain terms to mind his own damn business and shut his trap and get the fuck out of my path…I then proceeded to tell the dip shit on the other side of my phone the following…Not only ma’am am I not protected I am being verbally attacked by another dip shit in a public place for no reason at all…That shut her up fast…I proceeded to state that unnecessary restrictions on my bank card which for me is my lifeline is setting me up to fail and to be attacked…She then apologized and I said thank you for your scripted apology for banal corporate policies of destroying peoples’ bank cards and their lives…I said do you take sick pleasure in my suffering in my struggle to get heinous criminal unnecessary restrictions lifted?…I said I suppose you do since you see fit to think that all you have to do is say cheap words like “I’m so sorry for your inconvenience”…I further stated that I am sorry you feel that way about little people like me…In the process of her scripted responses I was sent a code which I then read back to her which supposedly protects my identity…She lied on the phone and said that is not the code…I shit you not…I replied ok I will screen shot this code as evidence that I read this to you in a timely manner before it expires in ten minutes…As well as evidence that you lied to me as part of ways you harass the piss out of decent customers like me…She backed off and cleared my card…Guess what my readers???…That bitch removed my restriction a restriction I was told by another bitch could not be removed…I kept that cunt on the phone until I made my purchase…This time my purchase went through…What I am doing here is establishing a case whereby fraud detection abuses are done in a systemic way hidden behind good explanations such as an algorithm that arbitrarily restricts bank cards…So as to destroy peoples lives…I thanked the merchant for his patience and he reassured me that the man who called me a “Total Karen” found me very entertaining and that he did not record me on his phone…Time will tell if I see footage of that exchange I will crush it under various enforcement policies and procedures available to the public…I told my son when I returned home that someone saw fit to call me a “Total Karen”…My son laughed and said mom that is not a good thing…I said son tis a fine thing for if I were not feisty I would not have been able to use my bank card till Monday…What the fuck is a fucking “Total Karen” anyway…I looked up the meaning of the the words “Total Karen” Fuck that shit I am not a soccer mom who complains about small shit…I have seen women like that they are shit heads…I am one of eight children I ate whatever food I was served and if something is not right with my food I eat it anyway…According to “Total Karen” description Karen’s do not vaccinate their kids etc…Shit my son and I are vaccinated to the max due to extensive international travel…Supposedly “Total Karen’s ” own minivans and control their kids…My god the bullshit is alive and well in America…A dip shit American male takes one look at me on the phone dealing with a nasty fraud detection corporation full of dip shits and declares that I must be a “Total Karen” simply because I stand up for my rights…Nah I am not a “Total Karen”…I am worse than that…I do not own a minivan I own an armored car and I have my own army who will deal a mighty blow to dip shits who know nothing about this one from Ireland…I am a war machine a total Valkyrie…That’s right you can call me Valkyrie not a dip shit “Total Karen”…Do I really own an armored car and run a small army?…Fuck no…Of course not…I am my own army my own war machine…European women like me take no shit and we have no time for dip shits…I am just one pissed off feisty Irish mammy…My phone was dead so I charged it…Once my phone was charged I got a voice mail from get this drum roll please….A man who is a hired thug for security for that horrible fraud detection corporation…I realized then that corporations own our police departments that horrible corporations hire thugs to fear monger small civilian soldiers like me…Here is how I handled the corporate security thug hired to scare those who oppose profane restrictions that are not fraudulent yet are a fraud on the part of that so called fraud detection corporation…I listened to the voice mail twice…I observed that he spoke in a very fast manner…So when I called him back…I asked him to speak slowly and to slowly tell me his name…He did that for me and he told me that he runs security for this large corporation for the state I live in…That sounds impressive and very intimidating which is the role that man plays…To his credit he gave me a voice and listened to my position…I also apologized for things I said which were wrong because I said things you should never say at the airport…To his credit he validated his understanding of how and why the situation escalated…He even asked me to demonstrate my linguistic abilities…So I challenged him to guess the language I spoke and I apologized to him in French and German…I stated I do not falsely claim to be fluent in any other language than English…I simply know how to converse in many languages…Some are more limited than others…I believe that man questioned my abilities to check me out in terms of things I say and do and do not do…To his credit he could appreciate how extremely frustrating those experiences were for me…I gave him my verbal reassurance that I would never act on such crazy threatening speech…Further to that due to my own special needs that I purposely avoid guns and would have no idea what to do with one…Now to prove a point in terms of how shady these corporations are…I said I am willing to put it in writing that this will not happen again…I offered that man my mailing address…He refused and replied that he believes he has my details…After that phone call which ended with that man saying he will be contacting me again soon…To which I responded with a question…What would be the purpose of his follow up contact?…To which he replied to see to it that threatening speech words that you should never say at the airport would not be repeated…I tell you this because creepy large corporations are very good at fear mongering…I replied it will not happen again and the call ended…I contacted the local police department and informed the officer on duty that this phone call took place…I was reassured that if that man who has some corporate clout wanted me arrested that he would not have called me first he would have simply gone straight to the police…That kind officer further stated that without context or other evidence arresting a feisty little Irish Mother over a bank card issue would not be happening…Most people understand that under duress and in the heat of the moment folks can say crazy stupid things…I share this experience with my readers as an example of ways horrible corporations aggressively harm decent people in a very systemic and categorical fashion…After I was given this reassurance…I called that man back and left my details…My contact phone number which he already has and both my mailing and physical address…A transparency that sadly many corporations fail to match…I am very transparent for I have nothing to hide…I hope my story about this experience helps my readers…A word of caution never say things you should not say at an airport even in a heated moment for it could land you in prison…I sincerely do believe that the only reason I avoided arrest was because I was able to file my own complaint first citing how these excessive restrictions causing my bank card to decline compromised my mental health…I am doing much better now and I am in a much better head space…I would say this too…It is ok to release your anger in a safe way in a safe space…One way I release my own outrage is to literally let out loud screams in the safety of my own private room…If I did not learn how to deal with my own anger in a safe way…My story could be tragically very different…It is my hope that my own stories helps others in some small and meaningful way…As a thank you for reading this reflection and short story that ended well thanks be to the God of life….Enjoy my songs titled The Art Of War sung in five languages and my song titled I’m Just a chemical also sung in five languages…I also include my
