Somehow

The President is merely the most important among a large number of public servants. He should be supported or opposed exactly to the degree which is warranted by his good conduct or bad conduct, his efficiency or inefficiency in rendering loyal, able, and disinterested service to the Nation as a whole.

  Therefore it is absolutely necessary that there should be full liberty to tell the truth about his acts, and this means that it is exactly as necessary to blame him when he does wrong as to praise him when he does right.

 Any other attitude in an American citizen is both base and servile. To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.

Somehow Donald Trump never learned that....Somehow Donald Trump doesn't get that.....

Weekend Humor

An old man visited his doctor for help with a problem. "Doc, I don't know what's wrong, but I fart all the time. It's weird because they are silent and odorless, but they keep coming out. In fact, I've farted about 6 times just sitting here. What can I do?"

The doctor replied, "Here, take one of these pills every morning and then come see me in a week."

A week later, the old man came back to the doctor and he was upset. "Doc, those pills didn't help - they made it worse! I'm still farting, but now they stink something fierce!"

The doctor replied, "Calm down, sir. Now that we've cleared your sinuses, we can work on your hearing."


EVERYBODY HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!!

Keith's Favorite Quotes

I don't know Jennifer Litton Todd (And no, that's not her in the photo)...but her comments about the Republicans are spot on..

Republicans accusing Dems? "Don’t you EVER talk to me about obstruction again when you blocked a SCOTUS nominee. Don’t you EVER talk about “traditional marriage” again when you elect a thrice-married serial adulterer, with 5 kids from 3 different baby-mamas. Don’t you EVER talk to me about “family values” again when you support ripping immigrant families apart. Don’t you EVER talk to me about being “pro-life” again when you don’t support universal healthcare. Don’t you EVER talk to me about being pro-law and order again when you don’t respect the right to due process for black and brown people, and you support citizens owning rocket launchers. Don’t you EVER talk to me about religious freedom again when you’re passing travel bans that target specific religions. Don’t you EVER talk to me again about abstinence or purity when you’ve chosen a sexual predator as our commander and chief, don’t you EVER talk to me about patriotism again when you don’t mind your President was installed because he conspired with a foreign adversary. The list of GOP hypocrisy is never ending. And lastly, don’t you EVER call me a “snowflake” again when your own POTUS rage-tweets from his potty seat in the wee hours over any possible slight, real or imagined." I will add don't ever talk to me about obstruction when you repugnants shut down the government and refuse to pay our troops."

Why Some Might Consider Sitting Out Today's Women's March

Yeah, I know that the government has shut down....I'll deal with that in the coming days depending on how long it lasts...but there is another Women's March today and I found this editorial by S. T. Holloway particulary interesting....She brings up some very good points..

"Please do not misunderstand. My disappointment had little to do with my sign and chants themselves. It had to do with what white women’s intentional decision to ignore them represented. It represented the continued neglect, dismissal and disregard of the issues affecting black women and other women of color. 
It is the type of disregard evidenced by the scene at another protest held in the same exact location a couple of years earlier. In 2014, I, along with several hundred other people, marched in protest against the shooting of Ezell Ford, an unarmed black man killed by the Los Angeles police just days after the killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. And whereas the Women’s March felt like a mosh pit, the Ford protest felt more like an empty parking lot, with protesters walking freely down open streets alongside normal traffic, their movements unrestricted by a voluminous crowd."


"While there were certainly some white allies present joining their voices in solidarity, noticeably absent from the Ford protest were the throngs of white women I saw at the Women’s March: the soccer moms, the college students, the housewives with their children in tow, the grandmothers, the career women, the retirees and so on."
"Instead, the majority of those present were the regulars, black and brown folks, and in particular, women. On that day, as we have before and have since, we found ourselves alone in our pain. We found ourselves alone in our pleas and cries for justice, for the end to the killing of our children and husbands and fathers and brothers, for the cessation of the systematic dismantling of our families, and for recognition that our lives and the lives of the ones we love do matter.
This willful blind eye, this deliberate ignorance, fosters a culture where millions protest when white women’s access to health care is threatened, but when black maternal death rates in the United States are on par with women in countries like Mexico and Uzbekistan, there is no national outrage or call for reform or worldwide protest."
"It is these issues affecting women of color, along with the effects of mass incarceration on our communities, the rate at which our children are disproportionately punished in schools, the lack of access to quality and affordable health care, the threat of destroying families as a result of deportation, the disproportionately high number of black trans women that are murdered, and so on, that are often met by deafening silence by our white sisters."

My Frat brother Kwame Jackson said it better-

 “Ninety-four percent of black women voted for Hillary Clinton, yet here we all are at a march, protesting the person you put in office, and we can’t even get you to affirm that yes, black lives do matter. It’s indicative of an overall trend of black women showing up for this nation, while continuously having their own issues and concerns summarily dismissed.”

It is these lingering issues that have not...but must be addressed seriously if we are to build serious coalations on the left and beat back this current right wing takeover in our government!

 Did you hear about the male prostitute who got leprosy?
He did okay until his business fell off.

He decided to stick it out for one more year!


Did you hear about the kid napping? Yeah, he woke up!

Did you hear about the two antennas that got married?

The Oprah Factor

I want to piggy back on what I was talking about yesterday since Oprah Winfrey made one Golden Gloves acceptance speech mind you....One Speech in which she never mentioned running for President...but everybody is veiwing it as a speech launching her Presidential campaign for 2020...

To date...She hasn't said anything that I've heard making me believe that she is leaning that way....But on Facebook and Twitter, people are debating the pros and cons of an Oprah Winfrey run for President..
Personally I hope she doesn't run...

Just so you know and for the record.....I love Oprah...Hear that? I Love Oprah Winfrey...Got nothin against her...Do I want her for President? No! 

I reiterate from yesterday....We are in this mess we are in now because we worship celebrities...There are talented , driven and experienced people who want the job of President and could do the job on both sides..Right and Left...Please stop putting your hope in celebrities..

 I want the next President to be experienced..Somebody who knows what they are doing..Not some celebrity with an opinion...Hell I have opinions...But I don't think I'm fit to be President..(Considering the one we have now...Maybe I am!)

You want an intelligent Black Woman Presidential Candidate...Try Senator Kamala Harris
Or maybe just a woman candidate...Try Tammy Duckworth
 Or somebody else....

I ask that they be intelligent...that they have read something...that they understand the basics of how government works and if they don't know , then appoint people WHO DO KNOW to help them know....
I know for a fact that Oprah Winfrey is far more intelligent that the current occupant...And she probably would surround herself with intelligent and competent people...Something the current occupant hasn't done and hell, she might even do a halfway decent job...

I mean the bar is set pretty low now...You can't do much worse...But I like Oprah doing what she does best...being a communication mogul and philanthropist....

I would have liked the current occupant anywhere but where he is...

Thoughts For 2020

I couldn't agree more..We are in this mess we are in now because we worship celebrities...There are talented , driven and experienced people who want the job of President and could do the job...Please stop putting your hope in celebrities..

What I've Learned


1. In Politics there are no permanent allies...Just permanent interests.

2.In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.

3. Things turn out best for those who make the best of the way things turn out. 

4. The worst days of your life seem to go by the slowest, and the best days go by the fastest ...

5. The hardest thing to learn in life is which bridge to cross and which bridge to burn.

6.Some broken things stay broken.

7.You won't always be happy, but you should try to be!

8.Every last one of us is riddled with contradictions...It's what makes us interesting.

9.A wise man said that if you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything. 

10.One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple.” ― Jack Kerouac

PEACE!

Weekend Humor

A girl realized that she had grown hair between her legs. She got worried and asked her mom about that hair.

Her mom calmly said, “That part where the hair has grown is called Monkey, be proud that your monkey has grown hair.” ….

The girl smiled.

At dinner, she told her older sister, “My monkey has grown hair.”

Her sister smiled and said, “That’s nothing, mine is already eating bananas.”
