Not always regarded as a stigma; the Conqueror is referred to in state documents as "William the Bastard." Figurative sense of "something not pure or genuine" is late 14c.; use as a vulgar term of abuse for a man is attested from 1830. As an adjective from late 14c.

Symbolic Butterfly Meanings
Interpreting animal symbolism is a powerful way to connect with nature, and learn lessons from her creatures - lessons that we can apply to our own lives. Observing the butterfly and learning her symbolic meanings offers us an opportunity to apply her movements to our own lives. For example, we can relate the butterfly's stages of life to our own life-phases...growing pains, times of ravenous hunger, times of vulnerability, moments of miraculous expansion. The more we seek symbolism in nature, the more we realize we have a lot in common with animals, insects and life in the wild realms. Indeed, we are intimately connected with the animal queen/kingdom - inseparable from nature and her movements.
Overwhelmingly, cultural myth and lore honor the butterfly as a symbol of transformation because of its impressive process of metamorphosis.
From egg, to larvae (caterpillar), to pupa (the chrysalis or cocoon) and from the cocoon the butterfly emerges in her unfurling glory. What a massive amount of transition this tiny creature undergoes. Consider for a moment the kind of energy this expends. We daresay if a human were to go through this kind of change we'd freak out!
This unwavering acceptance of her metamorphosis is also symbolic of faith. Here the butterfly beckons us to keep our faith as we undergo transitions in our lives. She understands that our toiling, fretting and anger are useless against the turning tides of nature - she asks us to recognize the same.
In the United States, Patriot Day, observed as the National Day of Service and Remembrance, occurs on September 11 of each year in memory of the 2,977 killed in the 2001 September 11 attacks. (Also commonly known as ‘Nine-Eleven’)
Each year on this day, American flags are flown at half-staff to honour and commemorate those lives lost. The US President asks fellow Americans to observe a moment of silence at 8.46am (Eastern Daylight Time), the time of the first plane collision into the North Tower of the World Trade Center.
Also, Patriots' Day (officially Patriots' Day in Massachusetts and Wisconsin and Patriot's Day in Maine) is a civic holiday commemorating the anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord, the first battles of the American Revolutionary War on April 19, 1775.
Manufacturers scrambled to find other sources of cheap labor, they didn’t have to look too far. Prisons and big businesses have now been exploiting this loophole in the 13th amendment for over a century. “Insourcing,” as prison labor is often called. Manufacturers have chosen to forcibly employ the 2.4 million incarcerated people in the United States. Chances are high that if a product you’re holding says it is “American Made,” it was made in an American prison. On average, prisoners work 8 hours/ day, but have no union representation and make between .23 and $1.15 per hour, over 6 times less than federal minimum wage. These low wages combined with increasing communication and commissary costs mean that inmates are often released from correctional facilities with more debt than they had at their arrival. Meanwhile, big businesses receive tax credits for employing these inmates in excess of millions of dollars a year.

In this episode of "Bringing Voices To Power" me and April discuss more about the queen mentality vs the hood-rat mentality. April Gail Lee holds a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) and a Masters of Mental Health Counseling from Walden University. April is a strong black queen who has strong views about the relationship between the black man and black woman. She also has had some powerful testimony about the dangers of involving the black family in family court and the long-term effects that it has on the child. She lends an important voice to the Facebook Page "Afrocentric Psychology" and the black community that provokes great discussion and debate. We will discuss what makes a queen and what constitutes a hood-rat and how we can reunite the black man and woman for the betterment of the black community. We will also talk about what to do when a black non-cutodial parent goes downtown and presses the "white-supremacist button" of financial slavery.
