Uncle Ben (Carson)

I can't believe that I used to admire this man when I was growing up....His story of coming from literally nothing and becoming a world famous neuro-surgeon....His successful operation in which he seperated congenital twins....I was a big fan....

Then he dared go outside of medicine and enter politics...It goes beyond him being a Republican...Because Colin Powell is a Republican and I still have big respect for him...

This goes deeper...This guy opened his mouth and revealed himself to be a straight fool as my late mother would say....

Half baked ideas are a kind way to describe some of the things that have come out of this guy's mouth...I have even tried to give him the benefit of the doubt and say that he couldn't have possibly have said some of the things attributed to him....but then I saw him on Television and heard with my own ears some of the things he's said and I just have to shake my head....

I'm shaking my head that he is in second place behind Donald Trump....But this says more about the people voting for him than it does him.,..

Happy Indigenous People's Day

"There are so many holidays we celebrate every year that mean nothing. Like Columbus Day. Nobody celebrates Columbus Day, nobody puts three ships in their front yard.

First of all, Columbus discovered the West Indies. Second of all, the land he discovered had occupants on it. That's like discovering someone's back yard." ~ Chris Rock

Even when I was a child in elementary school...I used to ask the question...Why are we celebrating Christopher Columbus?

How did he "Discover America" when there were already people here when he got here?I would ask....

You can understand why teachers hated me...I would ask the annoying questions...

And later...I realized that he didn't even know where he was when he arrived...He thought he was in India...Which is why he arrogantly named the native people who were here when he arrived -INDIANS!  And Native Americans have unfortunately held on to that moniker ever since..

Columbus Day as it were is meaningless and historically inaccurate... I've since found out that he wasn't even the first white man to arrive in the Western Hemisphere...There is now evidence that the Vikings may have been here at least 100 years before him as well as others...

Some of us though still like to hold on to myths....

Me, I'd rather deal with the truth....

So Happy Indigenous People's Day!

Crazy Isn't it?

Not even the white so called Liberal and Progressive media covered yesterday's Million Man March Anniversary in Washington D.C.

It looked like it was more people there than when I went in 1995.....

Crazy how things turn out....The news media covers what it wants to cover....I guess they feel as if they ignore this, then it didn't happen...We'll go away....

Fat Chance!

Somebody Doesn't Want Somebody To Vote

Here we go again!   As another Presidential election looms and as mid term elections loom, the powers that be or rather the powers on the right that be are gearing up to try a lot of shenanigans to keep people from voting..

Well let's just call it like it really is...To keep African-Americans  and Latinos from voting in masse...Does the word gerrymandering ring a bell?

It's a fancy word for redistricting....Politicians are changing districts and demanding that people have photo ID's anything to slow down voting in the Black and Latino and poor communities...(They used to use the Klan...)

"Despite a budgetary pretext, the consequence of this decision is to deny the most vulnerable in Alabama an equal opportunity to obtain a means to vote," Sewell wrote. "These closures will potentially disenfranchise Alabama's poor, elderly, disabled and black communities."

Before this President, Barack Obama was elected....Does anyone recall having to have a photo ID to vote?  Does anyone recall anyone crowing about voter fraud?  I do not...

The closures, announced last week, drew a firestorm of criticism -- including from Democratic Presidential hopeful,Hillary Clinton, who called them "a blast from the Jim Crow past" -- out of concerns that it will be that much harder for poor and minority citizens to meet the requirements for the state's tough voter ID law.

But don't you see? That's the plan!

Alabama officials have continued to defend the voter ID law and say those without driver's licenses or the handful of other approved forms can obtain free state issued ID from local boards of registrar.

We'll see....It's Alabama after all...The deep south or shall I call it as I see it..The Dirty South....If you can't win the game fair and square...change the rules...rig the game...

Thank God...Alabama has Represenative Terri Sewell ...I wrote about her before in 2011...

She was representing her district that had been struck hard by tornados and fighting the then Tea Party led Congress that was holding up relief funds in a failing effort to make the Obama Administration look bad....

These past 6 or 7 years has been like armed combat politically...Thank God we have soldiers like her on the front lines who are actually doing the people's business and looking out for those who have no voice otherwise...

What I've Learned

1.Don't Wait For Tomorrow...It's not promised.

2.God doesn't care if you eat pork or beef or you mixed milk with them....He does care whether you helped the poor and down trodden.

3.Love is Huge.....The most powerful en gulfing emotion in the world.

4.When You Talk to God, You're praying, When God talks to you..You're Blessed.

5.When all of the smoke clears,Love covers all.

6.Wisdom  and Love have nothing to do with each other.

7.High School Sports kept me in school and taught me discipline and team building which I would use later in life.

8.A Lot of times in my life I've rejected categories....I find it's so much easier just to accept something as it is..

9.You're not always sure if you're in love or not...but when you're having sex...I think you're pretty sure.

10.I never worried about being famous when I was a kid...but at an early age I did know that I wanted enough money to be comfortable and to never have to ask anybody for something.

Your Priorities As A Human Being

Weekend Humor

Three girls go into the doctors office.

The first takes off her shirt and the doctor notices that she has a blue ''Y'' on her chest.

He asks "How did you get that?"

She answers "Well my boyfriend goes to Yale and he leaves his Yale sweatshirt on even when we make love."

The next girl comes in and has a red ''H'' on her chest.

She explains "Well my boyfriend goes to Harvard and he leaves his sweatshirt on even when we make love."

The final girl comes in and has a 'W' on her chest.

The doctor asks "Let me guess, you have a boyfriend that goes to Wisconsin?"

She answers "No, a girlfriend at Michigan. Why?"

Everybody have a super weekend!

Stop The Republican Attacks On Planned Parenthood!

More than 200 Planned Parenthood supporters, staff and volunteers will rally in downtown L.A. to speak out for women's access to reproductive health care on National Pink Out Day.

Organizers say right wing political forces are trying to shut down the network of clinics because it offers abortions among many other services. PP says 90 percent of its offerings include healthcare for low- and very low-income women and men. 

This attack by Republicans on Planned Parenthood is just another distraction....Another talking point by the lunatic fringe that has taken over that party to get people to ignore the fact that in the last year they haven't passed one meaningful bill that has benifited anybody...That they don't have any original ideas and that this President has cleaned up their mess and actually has this country on good footing again...

I know they don't want to hear it...but isn't it funny how they take a target and just keep attacking it and attacking it and get people all frothed at the mouth about it....So upset that they forget things like unemployment, inflation...tax cuts for the wealthy....et al...Things they don't want you talking about and things they have no answer for...

It's Planned Parenthood this year....It was Gay Marriage a few years before....It was this theory that President Obama is a Muslim and he wasn't born in the United States  a few years before that...

What amazes me is how many people buy into the crazy and how many people actually believe things like this...The media allows itself to be used by the right wing Republicans like a five dollar whore...Even when it knows it's being manipulated....

So now lies and half truths are being spread about the "evils of Planned Parenthood"  Planned Parenthood is not evil and they just don't perform abortions....They educate women and men about contraception....(A word to big for most stupid people who watch Fox News religiously to understand or spell) They provide many services to young women and men about sexually transmitted diseases and other services....It is not a bad thing....It is a very necessary program....

Don't buy into the crazy...Look beyond this latest Republican distraction...Get them talking about issues that really matter....Jobs, Education...Tax cuts for the middle class and working poor...Affordable health care....THINGS THEY WOULD RATHER YOU NOT TALK ABOUT!
