Weekend Humor

A guy with a black eye walks into a bar and orders a triple bourbon.

The bartender says "Having a tough day, huh?"

The guy says "Yeah. My wife and I were doing the dishes and she turned to me and said 'Why don't we ever make love like in the movies?' So I bent her over the kitchen table, yanked her pants down and rammed it in. 

 I jackhammered her and slapped her on the ass as I pummeled her. Then I pulled it out, turned her around and blew my load all over her face." said the man.

The bartender said "Wow! Okay But what's up with the black eye? 

 The man shrugged his shoulders and said-

"Turns out we watch different types of movies."

Everyone have a super groovalicious weekend!

The Continuing Question

Is it because Neo-Nazi groups and the Ku Klux Klan who spout "White Pride" are talking about hatred for another group of people so in some people's minds...Black Nationalists of the 60's and 70;s and now the "Black Lives Matter" movemant just must be talking about the same thing??

Well they're wrong...Black Pride and Black Unity isn't talking about being anti -white...It's just taalking about Black people having love for themselves and unity amongst themselves...Point Blank....It's also about breaking down the systematic self hatred that years of institutional racism in this country and other countries has caused...

This is the short version....For those of you out there not prepared to read anything beyond 140 charactors!
Can you dig it?

Shame On You-Republicans..

I admit...I haven't had the energy to really write on this blog for a few weeks...but with so much going on..I felt I had to break my silence...

This threat by the Republicans on the hill to block President Obama from doing his constitutional duty is just so blatantly represenative of everything they have done since this man got elected...

To block everything he has tried to do..without question...Just block...

I used to joke that if President Obama said two plus two equals four...The Republicans would all say that two plus two equals twenty two...

No more obvious than now...

President Barack Obama on Tuesday vowed to pick an indisputably qualified nominee for the Supreme Court and chided Republicans who control the U.S. Senate for threatening to block him from filling the pivotal vacancy.
President Obama told senators he has a constitutional duty to nominate a new justice after Saturday's death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia and reminded them of their constitutional obligation to "do their job" and vote to approve or reject his nominee.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch(Senator No) McConnell has said the seat on the nation's highest court should remain vacant until Obama's successor takes office in January so voters can have a say on the selection when they cast ballots in the Nov. 8 presidential election.
"I'm amused when I hear people who claim to be strict interpreters of the Constitution suddenly reading into it a whole series of provisions that are not there," President Obama said.
"The Constitution is pretty clear about what is supposed to happen now," President Obama, a former constitutional law professor, told a news conference at the close of a two-day meeting with leaders from Southeast Asia.
In Washington, Justice Scalia's chair in the court's ornate chamber was draped with black wool crepe in accordance with court tradition following a justice's death.
The court said Justice Scalia's body will lie in repose at the Supreme Court building on Friday before his funeral Mass at the the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington on Saturday.
President Obama's nominee could shift the balance of power on the court, which had five conservatives and four liberals before Scalia's death.
The president said he understood the high stakes for Republican senators under pressure to vote against his pick for the lifetime appointment, who conceivably would be the deciding vote in cases where the court is split.
President Obama said the "venom and rancor in Washington" has led to the Senate routinely blocking his nominations for lower courts and other posts but said the Supreme Court is too important to get trapped in political gridlock.
"It's the one court where we would expect elected officials to rise above day-to-day politics," he said.
But Republicans have pointed out that President Obama and members of his cabinet, who were then in the Senate, were not above trying to block the Supreme Court nomination of Justice Samuel Alito by then-President George W. Bush in 2006.
"While he complained about filibusters today, he joined filibusters while in the Senate," said Don Stewart, a spokesman for Senate Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Asked about his record,President  Obama acknowledged Democrats have played politics with nominations, too, through what he described as "strategic decisions" that ultimately did not block the president's nominee.
"But what is also true is Justice Alito is on the bench right now," President Obama said.
President Obama shed little light on whom he would choose or how the White House will try to finesse his choice through Congress.
"We're going to find somebody who is an outstanding legal mind, somebody who cares deeply about our democracy and cares about rule of law," President Obama said.
"I'm going to present somebody who indisputably is qualified for the seat, and any fair-minded person, even somebody who disagrees with my politics, would say would serve with honor and integrity on the court," he added.
Asked directly if that meant he would choose a moderate candidate, President Obama said, "No."
He said there was "more than enough time" for the Senate to hold hearings and vote on his nominee without the White House needing to resort to a procedure known as a recess appointment to get around the Senate when it is not in session.
But he did not explicitly rule out a recess appointment.
Republican Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, whose panel weighs Supreme Court nominations, said on Tuesday he will wait until President Obama names his pick to fill the vacancy before deciding whether to hold confirmation hearings.
Chuck Grassley has offered mixed messages since Scalia's death on how the Senate should proceed on the vacancy, alternating hardline views on blocking any nominee with comments not ruling out hearings.
"I would wait until the nominee is made before I would make any decisions" about confirmation hearings, Grassley said, according to Radio Iowa. "In other words, take it a step at a time."
The partisan battles continues...And you know what? We all lose as they do.

Weekend Humor

An 85-year old man is having his annual checkup.

The Doctor asks him how he is feeling.

"I've got an eighteen-year old bride who's pregnant with my child. What do you think about that?"he said.

The Doctor considers this for a moment, and then says, "Well, let me tell you a story. I know of a guy who's an avid hunter. He never misses a season.But one day he's in a bit of a hurry and he accidentally grabs his umbrella instead of his gun. So he's walking in the woods near a creek and suddenly spots a beaver in some brush in front of him! He raises up his umbrella, points it at the beaver and squeezed the handle. BAM ! The beaver drops dead in front of him." he said.

"That's impossible!", says the old man in disbelief, "Someone else must have shot that beaver."

The Doctor says, "My point exactly."

Hoping to rid him of his inhibitions, during a passionate evening she flipped on her reading lamp and was shocked to find a cucumber in his hand.

"Is this what you have been using on me for the past 8 years?" she exclaimed.

"Honey, let me explain…." he pleaded.

"You sneaky swine!" she screamed. "You impotent Son of a Bitch!"she yelled.

"Speaking of sneaky!" he interjected,

"Perhaps you'd care to explain our two children!!"

Rest in Peace, Maurice White

I'll do my weekend Humor post tomorrow....I got the news late last night, That Maurice White, the founder and bandleader of one of my favorite groups, Earth,Wind and Fire died...

Maurice White, age 74, died in his sleep in Los Angeles on Thursday morning. He suffered from Parkinson's Disease.

His band, Earth, Wind & Fire had a series of hits including September, Boogie Wonderland, Shining Star and After the Love has Gone. Among others too numerous to name here..

The singer-songwriter was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 1992 but his condition was reported to have gotton worse in recent months.

Earth, Wind & Fire were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000, and Maurice White, himself was individually inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2010.

Popularly known by his nickname of Reese, he worked with various well-known recording artists such as The Emotions, Barbra Streisand, Cher and Neil Diamond.

"My brother, hero and best friend Maurice White passed away peacefully last night in his sleep," Verdine White, also a member of the band, told The Associated Press on Thursday.

"While the world has lost another great musician and legend, our family asks that our privacy is respected as we start what will be a very difficult and life changing transition in our lives. Thank you for your prayers and well wishes."

The group tweeted: "Our brother Maurice White passed peacefully in his sleep this morning. The light is he, shining on you and me.

Bette Midler was among those to pay tribute to the star on Twitter: "Maurice White, founding member of Earth, Wind and Fire, has died. Great music, energy, great spirit. The Lord must need a band up there."

"Thank you Maurice White for creating some of the greatest soul funk and R&B music of all time. Gratitude," wrote Mark Ronson.

Queen Latifah thanked White "for the gift of your music!" and singer and actress Jill Scott said: "Your music is the template of spirituality and greatness. Thank you. Be ever wonderful".

Lenny Kravitz posted a fulsome tribute on Instagram: "King. Genius. Leader. Teacher. Producer. Arranger. Writer. Multi-instrumentalist. Motivator. Mystic. Through his music and artistic expression, he taught me a lifetime's worth of knowledge. He is at the top of the list of all of the greatest masters. The music he left behind as Earth Wind and Fire, mixed with his messages of love, will live on forever."

Earth, Wind & Fire have sold more than 90 million albums worldwide. Many of the group's earlier hits were characterised by Phillip Bailey's bright falsetto voice.

In an interview with the Associated Press news agency in 2000, Maurice White said that he wanted Earth, Wind & Fire's music to inspire people rather than just entertain them.

"That was the whole objective, to try to inspire young people to believe in themselves and to follow through on their ideas," he said.

"We've touched so many people with these songs." he said.

He and Earth Wind and Fire certainly touched me.

The band is perhaps best known for its exuberant, horn-driven mix of jazz, funk, gospel and Big Band music played at concerts where they performed in glitzy costumes underneath multi-coloured lights. They played at many top venues including the Super Bowl and the White House.

"We live in a negative society,'" White informed Newsweek at the peak of the band's success. "Most people can't see beauty and love. I see our music as medicine."

In other tributes, Nile Rodgers posted a YouTube video with the tweet: "Back in the day we paid homage to your genius before we were Chic!," calling Maurice White "one of the most amazing innovators of all time".

"Just heard we lost #MauriceWhite, echoed Beverley Knight. "Gutted although I knew he was ill a long time. Soundtrack of my childhood. Seminal R&B smashers."

This year's Oscar host, Chris Rock, tweeted an image of the singer, with the words: "R.I.P the great Maurice White. 'You can't hide love'."

"Your contributions to music will be kept in our hearts and souls foever," posted Quincy Jones on Twitter, paying tribute to the star.

CeeLo Green wrote: "Rest well master Maurice White. Your work was well done and you earned and deserve eternal peace."

On the radio, DJs Nick Grimshaw, Christian O'Connell and Lauren Laverne all paid tribute to the singer, with O'Connell renaming his breakfast show Boogie Wonderland.

Earth ,Wind & Fire was one of three acts...(The others being Stevie Wonder and The Isley Brothers ) who whenever they came out with an album...It was a MAJOR EVENT!!! Play any song by EWF and I can tell you where I was, What girl I was liking...What school I was going to...What was going on in my life at the time...They were just that type of group! (Remembering Maurice White!)

3.The less you expect from people, the less they can disappoint you.

4.A prophet is never respected in his own land.

5.You either die a hero or you live long enough to become a villian.

6.Be like water, be able to bend and turn with the curves of the day.

7. I stopped making resolutions...I try to change something about myself every week.

8.Curiosity may have killed the cat...but lack of curiosity kills your mind.

9.Great People talk about ideas and ideals...Weak people talk about other people.

10.Love is elusive, which is why we write poems, songs, stories about it.
