My Christmas was lovely with friends and family over for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. This is now, what, about the 5th day of Christmas (I need all 12 days to get everything done, I assure you).
One of my beloved children bought my husband and I some tickets to a Christmas Carol and it was by far, the best performance I have seen, complete with smoke and mirrors. I cried thru most of it.
Since I frequent the Cook County Court system and still talk to corruption victims on a regular basis (they just keep on flowing in, the FBI investigation team for the deaths on the south side by police, take note), the entire play reminded me of my current avocation: personal counselor, blogger and book writer for the probate and corruption victim.
I do want to wish all of you Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to those of you falsely maligned and who cannot see their beloved parents and disabled relatives (as Gloria saw her beloved mother only a handful of times in 5 years and was under an illegal and unconstitutional isolation and gag order) You are constantly in my prayers and thoughts as you go through this holiday season with false Orders of Protection, false police reports, false gag orders and the like and you are asked to comply with the gaslighting of the elderly, which is a form of abuse the probate courts routinely promote and foster.
Who is Scrooge in Probate? Name one Probate attorney that is tied in. Name the attorneys from the OPG or Office of Public Guardian where one infamous Tom Brennan once told me in the hallway when my client only wanted to stay in his home until he died and OPG wanted to sell the home and foist him into a locked down nursing home where he’d rather die forthwith: “Some people (elderly) just remain in the community far too long when they should be put in an institution.” Thanks Scrooge. I have a few institutions for you too when you suppress the rights of the elderly and violate their Human and Civil rights, and I’m sure the same is said of you that you remain in the community far too long when there are institutions with orange clothing and silver wrist and ankle bracelets waiting for you.
But I digress.
So I want to leave you all with this famous exchange between the good people of the earth and Mr. Scrooge:
From the original play:
Spirit of Christmas Present: My time with you is at an end, Ebenezer Scrooge. Will you profit from what I’ve shown you of the good in most men’s hearts?
Ebenezer: I don’t know, how can I promise!?!?
Spirit of Christmas Present: If it’s too hard a lesson for you to learn, then learn this lesson!
[opens his robe, revealing two starving children]
Ebenezer: [shocked] Spirit, are these yours?
Spirit of Christmas Present: They are Man’s. This boy is Ignorance, this girl is Want. Beware them both, but most of all, beware this boy!
Ebenezer: But have they no refuge, no resource?
Spirit of Christmas Present: [quoting Scrooge] Are there no prisons? Are there no workhouses?
First Collector: At this festive time of year, Mr. Scrooge, it is more than usually desirable that we should make some slight provision for the poor and destitute.
Ebenezer: Are there no prisons?
First Collector: Plenty of prisons.
Ebenezer: And the union workhouses – are they still in operation?
First Collector: They are. I wish I could say they were not.
Ebenezer: Oh, from what you said at first I was afraid that something had happened to stop them in their useful course. I’m very glad to hear it.
First Collector: I don’t think you quite understand us, sir. A few of us are endeavoring to buy the poor some meat and drink, and means of warmth.
First Collector: Because it is at Christmastime that want is most keenly felt, and abundance rejoices. Now what can I put you down for?
Ebenezer: Huh! Nothing!
Second Collector: You wish to be anonymous?
Ebenezer: [firmly, but calmly] I wish to be left alone. Since you ask me what I wish sir, that is my answer. I help to support the establishments I have named; those who are badly off must go there.
First Collector: Many can’t go there.
Second Collector: And some would rather die.
I see a definite collorary here. The probate judges and attorneys are nothing but Scrooge. And I fear that even 100 Christmas angels of the past, present and future cannot make them open their hearts to the very people they liquidate all their assets for attorneys fees and tied in nursing homes.
So I leave you with this:
Honest Attorney (Ditkowsky and Denison): Can I count on your support, Mr. Scrooge (probate miscreant) to assist us in enforcing the Human and Civil rights of the Elderly and Disableds?
Scroogy Probate miscreants: Are there no nursing homes, no Assisted Living centers, no psych wards where these elderly can go while we fleece their estates?
Honest Attorey: But sir, most do not want to go there and many would rather die. Most are abused, tied to wheel chairs, beds and treated horribly, often drugged with chemical restraints. They slump over and drool, barely able to move. They implant feeding tubes against their will so they do not need to take time to chop food and spoon feed them. They never see the light of day or take a breath of fresh air ever again.
Scroogy Probate miscreants: Good. Then if the nursing homes, assisted living centers and psych wards are still in operation, I support them (by getting kickbacks). Those who are elderly and can’t fight back must go there and the sooner the better. Use the police, use APS, use OPG, whatever it takes to get them in there and drain the estate. I own many filthy, decrepit nursing homes. I send out expensive (anti) social workers, case (mis) managers and visiting nurses (of death). I can make money from misery.
And I want to thank all the probate miscreants I have met over the last 5 years who have provided me with the inspriation to write these few lines.
As a non psycopath, you have educated me well in your deceptive, evil ways. You have shown me your tricks, your deceptions, your lies and skullduggery. I would never have believed all of this or thought of it myself, unless I saw it with my own two eyes, heard it with my own two ears. You are tuly the spawn of Satan and his flying monkeys. Be proud, you evil ones. You have created death, misery and shame by the boatloads. Your holidays of evil for sure are pleasure to you.
As for the rest of us, we pray for the many victims you have left behind in your wake of evil and greed. A string of tears, misery and grief is your legacy in the probate world.
Merry Christmas to the good ones out there, all of you. May God/dess save you and bless you. And I pray that the evil ones be bound up to speak only Truth and Justice.
