DONALD… DONALD….

u1yjbmmze6zm8gpis-aotc3ohtx3xtqz-largeI got sick of him long ago.   So, this blog won’t be very long don’t worry.donald_trump_cbsnews

Tonight is the first Presidential Debate and everyone is talking about ‘which Donald Trump do you think will show up?’

Oh, I have no doubt which Donald Trump will show up… because I gty_donald_trump_hillary_clinton_sk_150619_16x9_992know it will be the Donald Trump that needs to show up.  Plain and simple.

Either the man is a total idiot … or a very masterful genius.   And I am beginning to believe donald-trump-iowa__3562059bhe is both.  But I think it has come about by happenstance.  Or maybe I’m just listening to those talking heads too much on television to be able to tell the difference.  Because they all seem to be confused too by this whole political mess we have this presidential election period.

Lets face it, at his very best we have all come to realize that the man is definitely not screen-shot-2015-09-09-at-11-30-54-pmsmart.  He’s not even a good business man.   His trump-presidential-run-1200x673history as a businessman speaks volumes to that point… in that every … and I do mean ‘every company the man, himself, has started has failed.’

The only business which has somehow managed to survive the 302e7a6200000578-3400501-image-m-41_1452831525416raging waters of a fidgety Donald Trump, who apparently likes leaping into business trends he knows nothing about… the first sign of someone who knows nothing about business.   Because when you leap into venues … business or otherwise that you have no real working knowledge of … they will inevitably fail.

This is a well known and highly proven fact… which has been the undermining of many donald-trump-bankruptcy-lies-rgoodhearted and people believing they could ‘make it too’… because some new money making business trend was happening in the marketplace.   But the thing they had failed to factor in was… they had no expertise or real working knowledge in what it would take in terms of capital, outside already pre-established relationships with other sub-contractors, suppliers, material manufacturers, overhead donald-trump-putin-pngexpenditures etc. that it would take to make it.   And maybe like the restaurant business… that it would a few years to first establish their business and clientele before their began to make any real money or even show any level of a profit.

The only business that Donald Trump has managed to not sink is Donald Trump Addresses GOP Lincoln Day Event In Michiganhis father’s real estate business.   There must be some type of major reason for that… like some type of clause or ryder on dear ole dad’s will that put a board or some other force over ‘the Donald’ from having run that company into the ground too.

enhanced-buzz-wide-9245-1449569272-7I thought that the President had to be men… or women… above reproach.   People who exhibited some level of having at lease a grain of honor…  a speckle of common sense… or some moral character above the average man or woman… people of GREAT dignity…  donald-trump-grow-upsomeone who possessed a HUGE AMOUNT of integrity.

How did this election fall so short?

Sure we may not all be happy about either or… but Hillary sure does beat Donald Trump any day… any year… any month… and any election.

Donald is so crazy… I am not even sure that the man is truly American himself.   Seriously.405

Vladimir Putin

He is so in love with Putin and dictatorships… and lets face it all
of his wives have not truly been American… including this last 1… who on top of it all … she can barely speak English.   A strip-810tee artist???

She is the classical example of someone who has sold her soul to the devil.   And this would be come the First Lady of the United States?

trump2_1And Donald Trump claims that America is disrespected now under Obama???

He would be the laughing stock of the world… and First Lady of every other country would find it hard just trying to hide all their smiles… behind such whoredom.    And if Donald Trump is marrying high… where is the ‘new low’ in America today?09-donald-trump-bully-w536-h357-2x
Because this man is the pits.

I just hope all those people that he has robbed and all the sub-contractors that he dupped out of their contracts… got the job done and/or the materials … but never paid…  I truly hope that somehow CJCS Visit
they all get their day in court … and see this man in jail where he belongs… and definitely not in the White House … not even on a trump-putin-2016visit.
What a shock that would be to the Donald… to be dragged off in the middle of the night by Russian guards laughing at his stupidity….

 

Oh, well…  So much for this because truthfully speaking the man has received too much Courtesy Diamond and Silkdonald-trump-iowa-reuters-800x430media attention.   If anyone needed a total blackout it would be the Donald.   And that is all I am going to say on him… except how foolish and ignorant the sellout black folk who have rallied around him are.  And I mean a bunch of ignoramus if ever there any.

proven he hates and thinks very lowly ofNot only are they confused… and lack understanding… who told them that they were smarter than you and me.  When we obviously 21trumpraceweb1-master768can see way pass all the games that Donald Trump thinks he can play on folk.

I just thank God that all of us are not stupid… and just won’t fall for everyone and everything… for real.

One final note on Trump… how can anyone ever hope to ‘make America great’ …who never even believed in the trademark …‘made in America?’

Well, UPDATE:   TUESDAY, JANUARY 31, 2017…  Well, the guy won.   And he is going stark trump_snl_protest-jpeg-03959_bd4ac38a115f2239c0456d23fd919abc-nbcnews-ux-2880-1000raving mad.  It has become quite clear to many that this man may truly not be dealing with a full stack of cards… and cards they would truly be.

What we thought was funny… now does not appear so.   In 8 days he img_8781-1024x768has managed to cause so much havoc that there is lots of talk about the 25th Amendment an act which allows the president of the United States to be removed for disabilities… and/or impeachment.

There has been demonstration after demonstration against him.   gettyimages-623042928And for a man who likes numbers… and is quick to say how he got the longest and loudest applause ‘ever’… it has got to be eating him up.

THE BIGGEST BLUNDER OF ALL TIMES… DONALD CHUMP…

donald-trumpWell, it didn’t really take long for the fool known as Donald Trump to really become more outrageous and ridiculous… and an absolute buffoon and idiot… even more so than before the Republican Party gave him the nod to legitimately be their nominee as President of the United of States.  Truly a very sad day in American politics… but perhaps even sadder for the Republican Party itself.

The man, to say the least, is crazy.

U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames

Being mad at a system is no reason to throw it away.   If that were the case we would have overthrown every government we have ever had in this country to begin another …and another one since this country came to be.

What I am saying is many people claim to be upset with government.   They claim to be upset with politics as usual.  They say that they want people outside of the curve… non-politicians… people just like them.

"Something's Gotta Give" - New York Premiere - Inside Arrivals

Yeah, right?

Then why would anyone have voted for Donald Trump then in the first place?    Because certainly no one can say… or should want to say… ‘he is just like me.’

Donald Trump is an exclusive ‘one of a kind’ con man… and he evidently learned from the best… mobsters probably.

He is no great business man.  He is nobody with any great flair for business or personal success.  Everything he has touched went south… out of business… failed and/or was bankrupt.    Except for the company his father left him.   And evidently there must have been some type of clause in that will which stipulated that the Donald could Cassidy-Donald-Trump-Americas-Muslims-1200only be allowed… note the word ‘allowed’ to do but so much within his father’s business.  Otherwise, that too would have probably by now gone to the dogs.

What great businessman do you know who has tried his hand at a myriad gettyimages-522829186of various companies …and ALL OF THEM failed?

The man is a disaster.   A one man wrecking crew.   A clown in the king’s clothes that no one could see… but were afraid to tell him that he was naked.

It is quite evident to me that Donald Trump has some stories that he could tell.   He must have a WHOLE LOT over a WHOLE LOT of people… with some degree of power or status.   And that is why many were fearful of trump-orangeattacking him or ever coming out against him… and he, though I think he is stupid, was shrew enough to release that Congressman’s personal phone number just to let all of the others know he was capable and not above doing the exact same thing, as the Manhattan Madame had done, spill the beans on so many people that they all just kept their mouths shut… and are still keeping their mouths shut because they all fear whatever secrets the Donald has on them.

There can be no other reason has to how or why this man got this far.  And, yes… barack-obama-unnecessary-solitary-confinement-is-an-affront-to-our-common-humanityPresident Obama is absolutely correct in having said that the man is unfit to be President of the United States of America.  Because Donald Trump is unfit.  He knows nothing about politics… the affairs of the world… nor does he know when or how to acknowledge just how little he truly knows… because he is dangerous.   He believes he knows everything… and that is a very dangerous person.

For those foolish people who thought that during the Republican Convention they could undo what they had done during the Republican Primaries… when they overwhelmingly voted for ‘the Chump’…  thinking they were sending some sort of message or that this thing was a joke.   Well, they found out hqdefaultdifferently… and now the Republican Party is stuck with the single most disastrous Presidential candidate in history.

Truly this whole election will be 1 for the history books for a long time… and it won’t be because the first woman will be elected as President of the United States GTY_donald_trump_hillary_clinton_sk_150619_16x9_992…but because of a phenomena called Donald Trump… who himself never thought he truly stood a chance… but some kind of stupid thinking on the part of many many many people got him to where he is today.   And look what happened… the joker came out on top and rt_donald_trump_mm_150616_16x9_992never paid 1 dime in advertisement for not 1 political ad… but was seen night and day… 24 hours because evidently somebody was afraid not to give him access like that… trump_msnbc-1msnbc… cnn… abc…cbs… etc…etc…etc… and all those other networks that gave the Donald a free ride.720x405-GettyImages-106863365_master

The prankster played and won.   Well, maybe not.   I doubt seriously that Trump… or Chump makes it into the White House even as a guest… much less as President.

4a5096af5ede5a99c91d68cb6410779b51fd8451And I must say…  the man is attempting to put the first immigrant woman into the White House as our First Lady… and the woman can’t even speak English.

And though Trump’s wife initially claimed that she alone had

Michelle_Obama_2013_official_portrait

Official portrait of First Lady Michelle Obama in the Green Room of the White House, Feb. 12, 2013.

written her speech she gave at the Republican Convention, in Cleveland a few weeks ago… then did a 360 degree turn when it was discovered that the speech had, in fact, been First Lady Michelle Obama’s speech some 8 years ago when speaking about her husband, Barack Obama.   It only leads you to believe that even Melania Trump has nothing good to say about Donald Trump either… which is why she had to steal … or attempted to steal the words of Michelle Obama.

I ask you, ‘Is there no integrity among these people?”

What happened to looking for real character and morals… and this thing everyone used to ‘really looked for’ called ‘integrity’ in our leaders, corporation heads… diplomats… teachers… coaches etc…. and even in our Presidents?

RTSIMDH-1024x671Did not anyone but me notice that Trump’s wife looked absolutely terrified mid-way through her speech?

It appeared to me that she was under such great pressure not from the public… but from the Donald… she was tight and points looked to me as if she were going to cry.   I seemed to me that if she did not do it right he was going to beat her later.  She truly had that kind of look upon her face and within her body language.   Her fear was greater than having to be ap8805010207before TV cameras and a bunch of people in a room.   And the type of man Donald Trump is … I have no doubt beating his wives is not off the table for him.

Mister ‘I’m so smart’… has to be the dumbest man on the planet.   And anyone who cast a vote for him was even dumber.  And the ‘I’m so sorry I did it’ numbers are climbing.

huty16400207I guess I should take a page out of Trump’s 4th wife’s book… ‘If you have nothing good to say … then STEAL IT.’

And talking about 4th wife… no one even mentions that almost all of his children are half sisters and 4a7b0b13ce76967ff2cbb7281d422952brothers… and some of their mother’s were pregnant before the Donald got around to marrying them.  Or do people only mention those sort of things when they are only talking about black or Hispanic people?

Or that was that incident where at least 2 of them pregnant while the Donald was still married to another Mrs. Trump.  You can ask Vanna Trump about that…  I’m sure she can better speak on that matter better than me.

AP GOP 2016 TRUMP MINISTERS A ELN USA NYAnd I can’t understand any so-called pastor… black pastor or other wanna be black leader would be endorsing such a man as the Chump.

Oh, well now that I have had my say on the Chump who think of himself as ‘Donald me-resizedAlmighty’ … I’m ready to do some real work now.  Hope you are doing well and that all is well with you.

DONALD TRUMP… TAKING NO HOSTAGES…

images-1It does indeed amaze me that 1 Donald A. Trump… or whatever his middle initial is… has managed to play the American public for as long as he has.  The man has been doing nothing but consuming the entire American media…for free.

Free television and radio…talk shows of all kinds… everything media including newspapers and magazine covers and articles… since he began his crazy journey… and all for free since his so-called bid to run for President of the United States. It has been reported that the amount of FREE media time given to the Donald amounts to above 1 billion dollars. All to a man who claim he’s ‘so rich.’ He’s ‘so smart’… he’s such ‘a great businessman’ etc…etc…etc…

Trump is the lowest of low.   He is a down right out and out scoundrel.  His whole persona and image is a massive illusion.   Certainly he is a man who must have learned from the best career criminal just how to cheat his way to success… and lie all way while getting there.   What a con job.images

He is no successful business man.  If the truth be told he is not even a mediocre business man.  He is a con man pure and simple.

Let’s face it not many people can run to friends or family and have them continue to finance our failures… but Unknownsomehow this has been what Donald Trump has managed to do.

Who in their right mind as any ‘displaced U. S. worker’ would want to vote for him, a man who has businesses and does all his business abroad using foreign labor.   The man uses cheap out of this country labor  with regard to products the Donald has had produced with his name on it… such as his neckties… and whatever else.    The man sends jobs abroad… but he says he’s going to be the man to bring jobs back to America.  Is this some kind of double talk?

What is so hard to believe about the fact that an offender promises to stop others from doing what he does… when and if he were to become President.     Then if not… the man would continue to do as he is doing.   The man even confesses it.   And he blames the American system for ‘forcing him to do it.’     If only we all could blame the American government for enriching us financially.

You have got to be kidding me…. and he is raking up votes from people who actually trump-amazing-to-watchbelieve his rhetoric …. and even for some ungodly reason… they even believe in him.   The man who is insane… his insane double talking  and side-ways talking while everybody else ‘but’ himself a liar.

We might at the end of the day have to all call the man a genius.   Or is it called… we’er all being played?APTOPIX-GOP-2016-Deba_Wake-1024x551

Everybody now is really staring to listen him…  and they are falling for him and everything he is saying … all being sucked in to Trump mania… even down to media people  now who at first thought of him as a joke.   Which when you get right down to it… Trump is.   But for some reason now all seem to be overtaken by him and open to the Trump mystique.

Republican Presidential Candidates Speak At Values Voter Summit

Donald Trump, president and chief executive of Trump Organization Inc. and 2016 Republican presidential candidate, holds up a Bible while speaking at the Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Friday, Sept. 25, 2015. The annual event, organized by the Family Research Council, gives presidential contenders a chance to address a conservative Christian audience in the crowded Republican primary contest. Photographer: Drew Angerer/Bloomberg via Getty Imageswould buy the Brooklyn Bridge if the Donald was selling it.

What is it that they don’t believe?trump-cash

What is so hard to accept when it comes to Donald Trump?

That he is a racist?

That he’s a bigot and fascist?

Truthfully speaking … he must be the anti-Christ.   Who else could such a man be?

it is as though he has ‘666’ etched in his forehead in invisible ink.   Nothing he can say will turn those who love him against him.

images-6This is not some all awing magnificent force but some type of witchcraft that has befallen us… a type of mass hysteria that has swept America.  And it is not just overtaking everyday people but people in chief positions… shot callers…. dice rollers and every other wayward sort in the Republican Party or would be Republican during this election for the sake of voting for Trump .

images-1The man has now proclaimed that if he does not get the Republican nod as their candidate to run for the Presidency in Cleveland… the Republican National Convention… that there will be riots.   Having made that statement alone should have been enough groundsimages to have had the man pick up for threatening to incite a riot during the Republican convention.   Because Trump sitting on national tv making that kind of announcement was code language to those who would do his bidding… such as members the Klue Klux Klan and every other racist in America..  if the Republican Party fails to do as Trump has commanded.   And the outcome following Trump’s riot announcement has the Republican Party scramming …running scared and now everybody wants to meet with himmaxresdefault.

The guy has not had to spend 1 dime on advertisement because every time he opens his mouth the tv cameras were there.   He has been eating up our airwaves for free since he got into the race to the White House.    Every talk show… every news channel … it has all been Trump… everyday and all day long.    It is like we are all being hypnotized.

images-3The man nor his wife… Donald nor what’s her name …. neither of  them should be let into the White House even for a visit.   It is like letting trash in.   And this may sound mean or even hateful… but who could be or get any meaner or hateful than the man himself?Unknown-3

Donald Trump.   The man espouses nothing but hate… conflict… and deceit.

Unknown-1

Who took those nasty disgraceful images-7pictures of his wife?

Well, she wasn’t his wife at the time… but he thought nothing about having them taken pictures of her dis-robed.  And they were shot on his Unknown-2airplane.

The man has neither class or anything that would give him a plus.   He is a rich guy… maybe.   But whoever said money could give anybody any class… smarts… or the ability to become the President of the United States.usa-election-trump

me-resizedClearly, this world would be in a world of trouble if someone like the
Donald ever became the most powerful man in the world… the President of the United States of America.

Well, God bless… this is it for today.   I guess I am now getting back into 2ab-the-bishop-wifecovermy stride.  It has taken me a while or maybe I was just waiting on the right climate for me to begin writing again on my blog.   Don’t know what it was.   But I’m back… at least for now.

Have a great rest of your day….

TRUMPING TRUMP…RUBIO & CRUZ…the RACE of all RACES…

Needless to say we are witnessing a very rare time in our political history  in this country, a time of mayhem and Unknown-8chaos politically.   I  guess 1 could say that it all can be primarily attributed to President Barack Obama having been voted in as President of the United States of America.

I say this because I cannot figure out what other reason would or could have lead a Ted Cruz or a Marco Rubio… or Ben Carson …or a Donald Trump, some very unlikeliest… to believe images-2that they had what it takes… or could possibly stand a chance of ever becoming President of this country … EXCEPT for the fact that a black man cruz_rubio.jpgfinally got into the White House, for the only time in our history and very possibly ever again.

I understand that Ted and Marco may have well forgotten that they are not ‘white’ while  running around on Capitol Hill.   It is a problem that some black folk used to have too
Unknownsuffer from too, when they stepped up into certain positions or had made certain associations.   And then there are some black folks like Ben Carson who have yet to come to the realization… that he is not ‘white,’ … and no matter how much he tried trashing Obama and Obama’s record…while trying to seek their approval they ‘white’ folk will never see him as being white.

After criticizing and trying their best to defame Obama, the 1 person whom Ben Carson, Marco images-3Rubio and Ted Cruz should have been lifting up and tried to aid and assist in any possible way… as a means of showing that for no other reason than that ‘a minority person was just as capable of being a good and successful President of the United States as any white man which had preceded him.’   This may have helped to paved the road for another black man or an hispanic person to become Unknown-6President too.

But ‘no’ this thought never came to them.  And it didn’t come to them Unknown-4because each… Ben Carson… Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio … each feel that they are Americans and that alone wiped away everything else.   That they could call upon their Unknown-2‘Americian-ness’ and proclaim themselves devote Christians… and this could catapult them right into that fancy seat in the Oval Office as the 2nd or 3rd minority person to become President of the United States of America.

Unknown-5 images-6But it doesn’t.   Ben Carson is still a black man… and Marco and Ted aren’t even Puerto Ricans …but Cubans.    Oh, they sound like who they are trying to emulate… and to some degree  look like it too …particularly in the case of Cruz… who looks like he is passing… and saying that he is from Canada has been a big help, EXCEPT for when the Donald began tackling him and calling him ‘not American,’  because Cruz was not born in the United States.   And who knows maybe Donald Trump might even be right on that 1?

Unknown-10If the Republican Party really plans to throw the election and not give it to Donald Trump, who is the person gathering most of the votes to be their candidate to run for President… they will have ‘hell to pay.’   Do they… the Republican Party really believe that the only reason Donald Trump is rallying up his troops into mobs is because he wants to throw a few black folk out of his press conferences?

No.  It’s because Donald is preparing his people for a fight.   They will storm the stage and rnc_dnc_onpagestart punching at everybody they see.   They are going to fight and start a riot …and take it by force if need be.   But they will not let their new found champion down.

Security concerns prompt Trump to cancel Chicago rally

An opponent of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump holds up a campaign poster torn in half as a Trump campaign rally is cancelled for public safety reasons at the University of Illinois at Chicago Pavilion in Chicago, Illinois, USA, 11 March 2016. EPA/TANNEN MAURY will storm that Republican Convention and all chaos will let loose if Donald Trump… their leader … hero and champion is not crowned king… and given the nod to be the Republican nominee to enter the ring against Hillary Clinton come November.

This stuff is not rocket science… Donald Trump in these little incidences during his rallies is giving the powers that be of the Republican Party a view of what to expect if they dare try to undermine him, and not make him… the man with the most votes their nominee presenting the Republican Party for President of the United States.

They will be dd56031016-video-Is-Trump-a-Racist-donald-trump-2throwing chairs… punching folk… fights breaking out all over the Republican convention if the Republican Party tries undermining the Donald and his hate mongers.  The Donald has already set the tone for it to happen if he does not get what he wants… and his people are ready.trump-amazing-to-watch.jpg

Trump is like that little ‘bastard child’ who has come to tell daddy ‘I hate you,’  because you
gave me everything but your love.   One of those little spoiled brats that everybody hates to see coming.    The kind of kid that throws a tantrum when they do not get their way… holding their breath, stomping their feet and rolling in the middle of the floor while they turn purple.

trump-square-150Clearly, the man is not bright… which is why he has an unending need to continually tell himself while trying to persuade others as to just how smart he is.   As if going to a certain school can do it for you… that is how dumb he is.   So, he calls out the name of the school almost every time he opens his dim mouth.

Or as if heading a business daddy left to you… and being able to hire the brightest and the best to handle the business for you… (what did you not know he really needed apprentices)…  to cow down to him and make him feel like he is ‘really’ a good business man.   Everybody

knows that he owes much to his first wife… who may have been his only shinning glory.   And may have well been that ‘great woman’ behind a Ivana-Trump-visited-Churchill-Downs-her-eccentric-fascinatorvery mediocre man who might very well not be who we know him to be today or be known of if it had not been for her.

In looking at recent pictures of Ivana today… as an older woman… it appears she had leaped off the deep end too.  But I guess having dealt with a lunatic as a husband for as long as she did is subject to make
anyone go a bit cracko too.

Clearly, the Donald’s only problems have not been his ability to stay out of maxresdefaultbankruptcy.  But to keep his pants up… and stop making woman pregnant so he would have to marry them to save face.  What in world could possibly give Donald Trump the right to believe …or even feel …. that he has the caliber worthy of being President of the United States of America… EXCEPT for the fact… he’s ‘white’… unlike Cruz and Marco and po’ ole Ben… after a young images-4senator from the State of Illinois happened to get in… who was black… or should I say ‘African American’ …and after that now it seems that everybody and just about anybody has began to feel like they could be President too.   Not because they were ‘worthy’ of becoming President of the United States ….but because they felt and/or do feel that Barack Obama being a black man lessen the standards of what it takes to be President of the United States of America simply based upon the 44_barack_obama[1]sheer color of his skin … as if skin color is the primary qualification of the Presidency of our country.   And nothing could have been or is further from the truth than that… because truly if ever there was a qualified candidate to become President of the United States Barack Obama has more than proved it was indeed him.

If anything President Obama and his family lifted the standards of what we should all be looking for in a President.   Qualities that go beyond education… which 635537348027211499-NAS-Obama-Mainbar-557surely the Obamas… both President Obama and his wife without a doubt do have.   Qualities that go beyond personal character… which President Obama hands down has exemplified as being extrairdinaire from beginning… as a young man and throughout his term as President.  Qualities of sincerity and caring combined with drive and purpose… there can be no question of this in our
President… President Obama.  Qualities of devotion and respect of the position in which he was entrusted… we need not consider this as any man who gets up and puts on a suit

and tie every morning to go downstairs, and handle business as if he were working on Wall Street… when he could chose to dress as George Bush did… casual most days… then you must know how President Obama perceived his duty… his charge… and obligation…  he took it seriously and with honor and dignity.

So, let us examine the qualities of those who would replace him on the Republican side:  images-7

  • Ben Carson I have long held since the day I first saw him… that he looked like a person who was medicated.  I know nothing of his medical career but have watched him in all the various debates and know without a doubt he could never sit among other diplomates and speak with any type of authority or genuine knowledge or assurance.  It is just not him… or in him.
  • Ted Cruz… well, anyone who would take up taxpayers cruz-square-150hard earned money tying up the Senate reading Green Eggs and Ham…   Was that him?     Well, any person who would do that is not worthy of taking into serious consideration for anything… because they fail to take their job seriously or people’s time… or their position in government.
  • Marco Rubio… well, when he began that thing about Trump having small hands ‘and you know what they say MarcoRubioabout a man with small hands’  I knew he could never be presidential enough… and though I didn’t and don’t like Trump… Rubio’s cracks seemed to be pointed more at his age (as a senior man)... and I didn’t think that was funny.   But his pre-fab speeches drove me crazy because the man never spoke from the heart… and like most politicians Rubio certainly seemed willing to say anything to get a kasich-square-150vote.
  • John Kasiak as governor of Ohio the only thing I think of when I see or hear him is how black folk had to stand in long lines in the pouring rain at polling locations to vote in urban areas of Ohio, due to slow and broken ballot boxes.   But he is the ‘heir apparent’ …the ‘great white hope’ since he is still the only white male on the Republican side in the race…. and whom all agree the only other white man in that race who is not crazy.
  • Donald Trump, mister crazy…. and ‘I love everybody.’   The man with the code words… ‘make America great images-8again’… meaning lets step way back in time …possibly the 1800’s …get rid of some of these minorities except the ones ‘he hires’ and/or marries… and subjugate the rest.

Clearly, Trump is a racist and bigot who believes imageshe has out smarted everyone…with his foolishness.  Because the man is indeed a fool who knows how to minister to the under-educated trump-cashand the inter-biasness of others for his own exploits, and ‘feel good therapy.’     As yes, it makes Donald feel good hearing them chant his name… its kind of like his name being put on another building or airplane.  Because Donald Trump is someone who needs to be stroked and made to feel bigger… and smarter than he really is… as he is neither smart… nor ‘smarter’ than anyone… nor does possess any more business savy than the average bear.

Unknown-1He’s sooooooo rich.

Oh, yeah…Donald.   I am so sure he is which is why he is yet imagesto release his tax records.   If he were that rich the bankruptcies that he has had could not have come about.  He would have been been made pay his creditors rather than cheat them out of their money.

In fact, if he had to pay for any commercials images-1like the other candidates Trump may have long been forced to have gotten out of the race himself.  But he fell upon it accidentally… and found that it worked and has been running with it all the way to the bank.   How to use media to his advantage… and it has been working.    What money he may lack now… Trump will truly capitalize upon once this whole thing is over.   There will be additional books… tours and speaking dates… even the re-emergence of his college.   But when the crowds fail to start to line up it… it will be all over… and the noise all goes away.   And he will be forced back at being who he was before this whole mess got started.images-9

730x420-48b381e49dedff388aef869a0037d4f5Well, God bless…   It’s time for me to really get to work now.  But I just had to take this time to write this blog as I have me-resizedbeen dying to put in my 2 cents regarding this election for the race to the White House 2017.

I pray that God help us all…  because this political season should give us all
2ab-the-bishop-wifecoverreason to be concerned.   But like pass times in slim pickings our country yet prevailed…

OBAMACARE HERE TO STAY… SHUT-DOWN AND CRUZ JUST ANOTHER PASSING MOMENT…

In the past few weeks we have celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the March on images1Washington, 9/11 and who knows maybe the first time that America iam_00024441tgovernment will actually come to a complete halt… per the calamity of having the wrong people in office.

http://50thanniversarymarchonwashington.com/

The Republican Party makes their boast of their history but 130919_ted_cruz1_mscottin recent past history and  by present deeds they leave much to be desired.  Many of them are so busy trying to align themselves for a possible Presidential bid that they will do anything to get their name and face out there… even if it makes them look and sound like a fool.

Now, having said that… along comes this guy called Senator Ted Cruz, of Texas… talking big and making bachmann_rectwaves, just as his recent past counter-parts had, namely people like Paul Ryan, Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann etc…etc… and that list goes on and on.

What the Palin, Bachmann, Ryan and Cruz’s and multiple others…. of those wanna-be’s have in common is a deep burning desire, that binges on lunacy to the point of self-destruct… because all they have in mind is… I just wanna be President of the United States… or I just want everybody to know my name, and hence,  receive some level of power or pull to sit on top of some big Capitol Hill committee.  So, they will obstruct… try todefund-obamacare undermine… destroy… disrupt… and yes, even threaten to bring to a halt everything on Capitol Hill and around the country… while they have a temper tantrum attempting to do it… or read children’s story books for hours while trying to hold up the workds (i.e.  Cruz)… or do whatever their ‘it’ is.

Where do these people come from?

Well, they were birth out of a joke many of them… this group of extremist Republicans.  A joke called the ‘Tea Party.’  They see themselves as self-made patriots… savers of America… slayers of the big government… and the restorers of our American way and values.  When in reality America is the last a_560x375thing that they have on their minds.

In essence they are just a bunch of wanna-be’s… spoiled brats who somebody… or maybe nobody… birth something in them that they could be the next Commander in Chief… President of the United States of America… el honcho grande.   Yes, that is how they see themselves… when in essence the real fact of the matter is… is that they are all a bunch of big time losers… with no more brains than a bag of rotten potatoes.

Or is that tomatoes?

I get so tired of these guys… and gals… who want to undermine Obama and everything that 8-7-13-Ted-Cruz-blogObama attempts to do… by taking aim at our government itself… to destroy it just in order to show Obama up.  They care about nothing but their supposed end game… get Obama… make Obama look bad… block Obama… attack Obama… etc… etc…

The problem here is that they are too dumb to realize that Obama is really smarter than they are.  Because you see they really do not see Obama as being smart at all… but just as somebody who got into the White House on a lark.  Hence, Romney’s inability to recover imagesfrom his stunning defeat following the announcement that he had lost the 2012 Presidential race to Obama.  They, Romney and his crew… were soooooo sure that President Obama would not make it back into the White House for a second term, that Romney had not even prepared a concession speech.  Now, that should tell you that these people, those against Obama… that they don’t see the world as it really it… but only as small as their very small little circles are.

Oh, sure they have money.  Some even have clout and lots of it… but they lack anything substantial upstairs.  They have no brains… but a whole lot of hot air.   And they operate only and solely upon their own selfish desires and highly inflated ambitions.

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/government-shutdown-looms-republicans-democrats-refuse-budge-article-1.1469204

So, we sit here for the 3rd or 4th time awaiting a threat by the Republican Party to shut obama-immigration-1down the American government.

Why?

Because they hate Obamacare.  No, it is more like they hate Obama.

Did not Obamacare pass the Senate?

Yes, it did.

What is Obamacare…  THE AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE PLAN… for THE PATIENT PROTECTION AND AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE of everyone who really needs it.  If Obamacare is for the protection of patients rights…  from being over billed… from being forced out of hospitals when their medical plans run out… or for medical plans failing to cover various health issues or limiting health care to patients… should not a bill been put into place to help those who fall under the mercy of these hugeHAFA_CoverPhoto_Defund_201308 and powerful, and often times mercilessness medical insurers?

So, why would anyone be against it?

Because… and this answer is simple.  Because it was Obama who did it.  It was Obama who got it through the Congress and Senate… who turned the bill into law.  And then they… the Republicans began to call the Bill, Obamacare… and that is their real other issue.  It bares his name… they name they began calling it just as a means of irking Obama.   Oh, my…

Far be it that this medical plan should have to go through the hallow halls of history with the name of the President who did it… Barack Obamaobama1.  It is the first Bill ever passed that has ever bared a name of any President who signed it into legislation.  And it is is not that it really bares Obama’s name… not technically…  but as a ruthless joke that has turned on them.

Wherever, speaking about the Bill the Republicans began referring to it as Obamacare.  It was all meant to be poke at President Obama concerning something they vowed never to pass.  But it did pass… and the name of the Bill has stuck with it… as an initiative on the part of the President to bring affordable and caring medical care back into America.

Well, what would be wrong with that?

First of all he’s black… or dare I say it… African American.   Second, he’s the first black man to ever rise to such a position… a position as President of the United States, that many Republicans have come to consider as an easily achievable fete that anyone can now ascertain… based upon Obama having done it.  So, you see all these non-achievers stepping forward saying ‘I’m running for President.’  People who have no more desire to help or aid America or us, her people… the people who live here… than the man on the moon.  They only desire the title of President and Commander and Chief… and whatever that may bring to them.   They are a bunch of people willing to jump on the band wagon merely for the glory of it… and take that ride for a far as it brings them.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2013/09/25/ted-cruz-obamacare-senate-shutdown-vote/2867141/

obamacare-nightmareThe thing they fail to see is that Obama cares.  He truly does. Barack Obama did not run for President of the United States merely for a title… or because he sought a position for fame and glory… but because he felt that our government was in trouble… which it was and still is… and that it needed someone who really cared about her people.  Hence, Obamacare 1 of the first steps in his initiative to revive America was birth.   But the Republicans are attempting to do anything and everything they can to wipe it away and any remembrance of it before it even goes into effect.  The ironic thing about it… it was them who gave that Bill Obama’s name.   And now that that that name has took… they want to do everything they can to un-do it… such an important Bill and it should bare a name that has stuck to it?

Everyone knows the Bill now as Obamacare because that is the name the Republicans gave it.  So, now the Republican rant and rave about the Bill… it cost to much… it hurts small businesses… it… it… it… it… like they, the Republicans… really care.

http://www.cnn.com/2013/09/20/politics/congress-spending-showdown/index.html

But Obama won’t be bullied.  So, shut it down… shut down the government, you Republicans.  You big… you bad… you do it.  But as you can see Obama is not backing up.  Cruz like Palin and everybody else who JORDAN-US-POLITICS-OBAMA-DIPLOMACYhas come up against him… or attempted to come up against President Obama… soon always find themselves fading away.  All the detractors and nay-Sayers… they soon fade away.

But it appears that every 15 minutes or so up pops a new 1… some new Republican thinking he or she can take on our President.   Trying to take President Barack Obama on is not nor has proven to be as easy for none of them… and certainly not as easy as they may have thought from the day Obama walked into office.  And in the end… and there is always an end… theirs and not Obama’s.  For they have all soon faded far far away off the radar… one right after another… gone.  Now, that should tell them something.

It is the cost of being too big for one’s pants… or better said… not knowing what size pants you really wear.  They have no idea of what it is to be respectful, when respect is due… and respect is something that always been allotted to all our other Presidents.  But for some reason they feel Obama does not deserve any.   But we are still, after all,  talking about the highest position in our government and the person sitting in that position… the President of this country… whether he be a black man or white… or Indian chief.   Obama deserves respect.   hospitalAnd no matter what they… those Republicans may think about him or say… he has not proven to be too shabby either… not shabby at all.

Being aduls we all sooner or later come to the realization that it is okay to disagree… but one does not have to be nasty or bitter in their disagreement.  Nor demeaning or out and out arrogant… something which many in the Republican Party have no understanding of.  Guess they have not fully grown up… and against their recent actions certainly prove that.  They  are so blinded by hate of President Obama that common courtesy …forget respect… fully and completely fails them.  And it fails them badly… to their own demise.  And this they continue to be trampled upon by Obama at every turn… because they can’t see how their own actions hurt them more than anything Obama can say or do to them.

I say… let us rally behind our President.

hospital-070409Why?

Because Obama is on our side.  It is really hard to believe that today hospitals kick people out because they run out of money.., or refuse to service you if your medical plan doesn’t cover a certain thing.  I me resized...remember when the medical business was about saving people’s lives and aiding in keeping them healthy and well… and never turning a back on them.  Obama remembers those days too… before it all became about big business and the bottom line… and making more money and more money.   Health and wellness should never be about that… otherwise it fails to do or serve its primary function, and that is to help sick and/or ailing people to be well.

2ab-the-bishop-wifecoverWell, God bless… well, it is Friday and it has looked like rain all day.  Burst of sun here and there… but I am surprise it has not rained yet, based upon how dark it has been.  It has turned a bit cool too.  I put on the heat because inside it is a lot cooler than outside.  And these old bones can’t take it… and have never been good at taking cold.  Well, hope you stay warm and enjoy your weekend.

UPDATE:  Thursday, October 2, 2013…. today is the 2nd day of the shutdown and no body is laughing.  Thousands have been laid off from their jobs… without pay and no idea as to when the Shutdown-thumbRepublican will grow up and throw in the towel.  But if they throw in the towel now… well, better now than later.  But if they throw in the towel now that they have managed to bring our government to a stretching halt they will look like the buffoons they truly are.

But, my goodness, to want to take down the whole government with you while you act like an idiot… really should be an issue addressed around this country during the next few elections.  VOTE REPUBLICANS OUT!

They are truly bad for this country… and so anti-American.

ethan-harris-a-government-shutdown-could-be-sustained-and-damagingI don’t blame President Obama for scratching his head… and wondering ‘How could they be so dumb and selfish?’

Continue to stand your ground, Mr. President.  And let know and see once and for all who they really dealing with.

BETTYE AND MALCOLM X…Black History Month 2013

Well, since it is Black History Month maybe now would be a good time to post this blog which I started in 2009 but never, for some reason or other never came back to.  Can’t remember what elijahprompted me to begin it in the first place.  Though I must say along with Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Coretta Scott King, Bernice Reagan, Merle Evers, Harriette Tubman, Sojourna Truth, my Mother, Grand-mothers, Great Grand-mother, Mrs. Parks, as in Rosa… and half a dozen others… if not more women I have always admired… I celebrate them all.  And if I keep thinking I am sure that I can come up with a few more… like O. J. Simpson’s first wife.malcolm_x

O.J. Simpson and FamilyYou may asked why I have O. J.’s first ex-wife on my list… it is simply that I admired her for taking the high road in all that mess.  Out of all of O. J.’s supposed friends and colleagues… judges and lawyers everybody went for the money.  They sold O. J.  out every which way they could sell him.  That is to say everybody except for his first wife.  She never took 1 dime or ever came out against him.  Never wrote a book… never signed a book deal… and she denied almost every offer for an interview.  Though I am sure that she could have had a lot to say… but she chose the high road… the side of  ‘to do him no harm.’

So, women like that… or people like that I can admire without any level of hesitation.  Because ojsimpson_320x245most people today will sell you down the river for a dime… a promotion… or whatever else is up for grabs.  And I am not being cynical.

Relationships… family bonds… friendships… you name it and they can all be tossed to the wind if somebody comes in with the right price.  And sometimes that prices doesn’t even necessarily have to even be actual money.  It can be a position… a title… an automobile… property… status… and phoney friendship… whatever the other side is in need of or looking for.

tumblr_m1e2h1qbDU1r3l21xThis is one of biggest and most saddest things about the world and people who live in it today.  Had Jesus still been alive today he might have had to worry about  more than 1 Judas… but maybe 6… 8 or 11 of them.

Everybody loves you while there is something to be gained in their association of you.  In the Bible it appears that Job was a very popular man until he lost everything including his health.  So, I guess it can be said that people have been the same throughout history.  Was it not Caesar who said ‘et tu, Butus?’

It was not a secret that Malcolm X was the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, the founder and religious leader of the elijahNational of Islam, right-hand-man and 2nd in command.  In fact, Malcolm had become the front man for the organization… he was the voice and the face of the organization at that time.

Malcolm X, Malcolm Little the name given to him by his mother, was such an eloquent speaker and possessed such great charisma that the Nation of Islam grew greatly under him.  A thing that I am sure was 426430_505761239476286_1292210791_ncelebrated in the beginning of their relationship between him and Mr. Muhammad… but later it became a source of contention between the 2 …as Mr. Muhammad saw Malcolm X’s power and authority growing among the ranks of the followers in his organization.

And then Malcolm went to Mecca and everything really changed between them.  When I was in high school I recall buying a book called the “Autobiography of Malcolm X” …that book really intrigued me.  I had not known anything about him until I read that book.

I guess I should invest more time in reading about our historical icons… and those who are little known.  Their contributions were great and should not be overlooked… while we make millionaires of  only writers of fiction.

0b10-1.jpg image by njohnson0920I really cannot remember what prompted me to begin this blog… or why I entitled it ‘Bettye & Malcolm X?’

betty-shabazz.jpg image by blackhistory_photos

But there had to have been a reason.  But since really I cannot at this time remember the reason… I have decided to just go ahead and post this blog anyway as a tribute to Black History Month 2013…  I hope you enjoy it.

I celebrate all the heroic women and men who make up our history.  Who endured, sacrificed… bleed… were spat upon… whooped… beat… stomped… dogs sicked upon… hit with forceful waters from water hydrants… who were made widowed or orphan… chained… tarred and feathered… and those who died.  I celebrated them all… including those who felt it worthy to die over just being called a belittling word that started with that letter ‘N’ … that I might walk and sit… and eat and sleep… and live… and go to school  etc… where I want to.

I will not forget… nor can I ever repay the debt by which they have endowed me… my family… my son… my nieces and nephews… our families… our history and our legacy for generations to come.  Providing us with much pride… dignity… courage that must be passed on to all our children.

It is Black History Month… and I am happy to celebrate all of our she-ro’s and hero’s… and there are many many many many of them.  And I thank God for each and every one of them.

2ab-the-bishop-wifecoverWell, God bless… it’s Wednesday and though it has not been very cold… it has been wet.  Some light snow and thankfully rain (instead of snow).
It is now Friday… and no I was not procrastinating.  Just kept running out of time… as my internet at home is out I me resized...am now regimented to using computers elsewhere to complete and write my blogs… a condition I hope to soon rectify.  So, until then bare with me… I may be a little bit and might appear to not be on top of things… BUT it is not my fault.
Before I close just want to take a little time to discuss the current Obama backlash.  Right 1350409147_barack-obama-michelle-obama-lgwing media and its so-called voices are really ridiculous.  They get all hot and bothered about everything the Obama’s do.  Jealousy is a very sad thing… it hinders one from seeing clearly.
The current blow-out is over First Lady Michelle Obama appearing on the Oscars.  Oh, michelle-obama-oscars-600man… how they whooped and cried over that claiming that the Obama’s think they are some kind of super-stars… how they think they are better than what they are… how they have lowered the image of the White House… etc… etc..  106967_5_
I have heard it said that ignorance is bliss.  And you know what… I think now more than ever that saying is so true.  What would Rush Limbaugh do… or his friends if they didn’t have the Obama’s in the White House?
http://mediamatters.org/blog/2013/02/25/michelle-obama-attacked-for-oscars-appearance/192788
They would all be out of a job… for lack of anything to say.  And so screaming over michelle-barackeverything the President or his wife does keeps their pay checks coming.
obamas_vintageIt is sad when you only get paid to find fault.  Can’t imagine wanting to live that kind of life.
The real problem with President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama is that they are too smart… too handsome and too beautiful… and their family picture prefect… and they just can’t find any dirt on them.  So, they (Rush and his friends) have to go after them by attacking anything and everything they do.  And what is even worst they can’t see that they make themselves look like clowns doing.
Well, today is March 1st… and I am loving the First Family forever and a day…

COLLECTING THE MEMORIES of INAUGURATION 2013 President Barack Obama…

image_largeIt may have been cold… but we showed up again to celebrate not 1 but 2 moments in our great history… both the 2nd inauguration of President Barack Obama… 265145_10151308364563241_1565993341_nand of course, the birthday of Dr. Martin L. King, Jr.

They say about a million people showed up this year to President Obama’s inaugural… but we all know that it was probably far more than that.  They said only a few thousand for the Million Woman March in Philly… but nobody could tell me that.  There had to have been a least a million plus women there… because when you looked out over that massive crowd of Black Women… all you could see were the top of heads for as far as you could any which way you looked.

01.17.13news-flickr-inauguration-metro-editThey had 2,200 people marching in the parade… which included over 150 horses and about 50 dogs, trained to obamamlk_answer_1_xlargeassist those disabled or otherwise encumbered yet living independent.

The Hawaiians showed up… our native American Indians showed up… Mexican dancers … drilled teams from high schools, Jr. Colleges and various college campuses including 12262012_AP090120057733_jpg_300those Grambling University  high-steppers… a Inaugural Paradegay band… military of all types… forest ranges… mounted patrols… Tuskegee Airmen…OI24 50 floats… and I can’t remember it all.  And President Obama waved and smiled all 20130121_inauguration18_33through it.  It was wonderful… and full of all kinds of people… young and old… including 6 130121_inauguration_crowdbuses of folks from New Hampshire with their band… who all came out to celebrate the commencement of224565_10200427531789456_1438621749_n our President’s second term in the Oval Office.

Truly history to be savored forever…

And what makes it doubly so Obama made sure to include a lot of  our history in it… including a traveling Bible that Dr. King used to carry with him during his travels from town to town during our Civil Rights struggle here in America.

PRESIDENT OBAMA and GUN CONTROL… the View on Chris Christie and Weight…

It is a shame that it took this long for this conversation to sincerely and truthfully come to the forefront 75084_10151396532909238_1417681934_nof American conscientiousness… but at last it has happened.  And 1 might say several senseless massacres too many before something should have really been done… like a long time ago.

After mass killings after mass killings finally the l_gunviolenceUnited States government is taking a stand, and President Obama is initiating laws against assault weapons and hand guns…all of which the Republicans for the most part want no part of it.

Well, I understand when your biggest financial campaign contributor is a gun manufacturer, and you have all those gun lobbyist sitting on Capitol Hill.  Yes, that might sway your judgment about gun control until it becomes a question of your own son or daughter…getting killed in some ruiz5k-1-webmovie theater… grade school or upon some college campus etc…

I’m happy that President Obama has said enough is enough, and is taking a lead on doing something that the Congress and the Senate of the United States has refused to have taken seriously for all these years and episode after episode.

But  what is so annoying and distasteful to me is how the Republicans hate President 485992_433034763435241_415730549_nObama…and are so very disrespectful of him.  they despise him. And no matter what good President Obama tries to do… they are against him.   Whereas, no matter what George Bush did…    In fact, it appeared that everything George Bush did was good to them… down to lying about weapons of mass destruction… and sending off people’s sons and daughters to be killed in wars which should not have been.   But they… those arrogant Republicans stood by George Bush… all the way.   Pushed pass everything Bush wanted without so much as a sniffle.  But oh how they cry bloody murder over everything that President Obama does or tries to do.  And then they want to say that ‘they are not racist.’

Yeah, sure…

Finally got a chance to read the above entire article LINK.  Those republicans are a real joke. They can’t even President Obama Speaks On Homeland Security's Announcement About Deportationsbring themselves to call Obama ”Mister President” or ‘President Obama.’. It seems that uttering those words when referring to the President would seriously hurt them.

0238190179_1_296x196_tlWhat kind of fool do they think President Obama is?

Trying to scare Obama by saying they will consider impeaching him for legally using Presidential authority 394934_433034866768564_800118516_ngranted unto him, as President of the United States. I don’t think anything dumber has EVER been said. What a bunch of fools.

Arrogance… ignorance and hatred will make a fool of you all the time… and that is the state that the American Republican party is in.  They are arrogant… ignorant fools.  And they show that by making the stupid statements such as those expressed in the above news LINK.

I am so happy Obama is not a chump. He doesn’t back down.. and he knows exactly who he is and they can’t stand that.

He’s the President…and they are only members of the House… He’s ”head houcho”…and that really bugs ’em…. And even worst of all Obama acts like it…and THAT is killing them.

It is far beyond the time for the Federal Government to step up into the role of ensuring the safety of the American Public by enacting laws that will lower the availability of guns to the criminally minded, and those who have some insane agendas.  These incidences have become too frequent and they are escalating.  I am just story that it took a bunch of very young school children to signify this point.

http://www.upi.com/Top_News/US/2013/01/17/Biden-Time-has-come-on-gun-violence/UPI-44991358409600/

I just happened to catch a segment on The View regarding gun control and various methodsmedium_viewmccainad_jez_Sm.flv that can be put into place at schools.  It was 1 of those rare times that I must admit to being totally in agreement with Elisabeth Hasselbeck… who is almost always a voice of dissension on that show… and a devote Republican.

Whoopie, Sharri and Barbara were all for guns being given to school teachers as a good method of curving school killings.  Which is something I find to be totally ludicrous.

gun-violence_0Do not teachers go berserk and fall off the deep end too?

Of, course some do.  And then the other side of that scenario is this…

What happens when a student gets a hold of 1 of his or her teacher’s guns?

Or even worst…  What happens when a school shooting occurs and the police arrive and can’t determine who is the real culprit with so many people firing guns?normal_Guns-1920x1080

Because arming teachers and/or other school faculty staff is a very very bad idea… so many walking and carrying guns in school this could very well become a worst problem… and dilemma would arise at  knowing who to shoot at.   In the heat of a shoot out… like out on the battlefield this is not necessary 1 of the easiest things to decipher…  Hence, ‘friendly fire.’

But fear and a haste to make all the wrong choices by putting into place measures that could bring about even worst consequences, than the problems we now face itself  are worthy of some deep thought.  And it is not Obama’s plans that I fear… but all these so-called do-gooders who may have some very flawed thinking triggered by lots of fear… or hidden agendas… all coming… running with their irrational suggestions.

Guns_1000I was not in favor either of arming flight attendants.  And thank God we got over that fear… when flying high in the friendly skies.

It would have been a disaster if suddenly a shoot out  between a passenger and airline personnel broke out in an aircraft… leaving all the passengers in grave danger not to mention the aircraft itself.  And so would be arming teachers or other supposed teaching professionals with guns be too.  The mediumlast time I checked that  shooting at Sandy Nook school, in Connecticut where 26 people were killed… and most of theml children under the age of 10… it was the mother (the school teacher of that classroom)… who had owned those guns which were used…by her crazed son.

http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/01/18/16584988-woman-protected-from-rapist-by-boy-14-with-hunting-knife-after-she-leaps-from-car?lite

The article reads that the woman…the female victim was the true hero here…

But, no.  It was the 14-year-old boy who opened the door and let her into him parent’s home who was house4738the real hero…because it was at risk to himself and his 2 younger siblings.

I am, however, sure that his parent’s might have seen this picture entirely different… and particularly since the crazed man, who had kidnapped the young woman, torched their home in an effort to get the young female victim back.

The young 14-year-old in this story definitely deserves to be praised.  But I know his parents must have an entirely different take on this story.  But he saved that young woman’s life…while at the same time putting at risk his own, and that of his younger sister and brother.  And not to mention their family 5333118-baseball-in-mitt-isolated-on-white-backgroundhome.

But it was an unselfish act.  And a lot of times people can’t understand unselfish acts…because they only see the dangers in them.

But this boy will probably be blessed for the rest of his life…because he did what God calls Seton Hall takes on Notre Dame in mens basketball game on 2-11-2010all of us to do.  To love our neighbors as we love ourselves.  The text actually specks of laying down your life for your brother.  Something that I know would run across no parent’s mind at the time when they hear how their home and family was put into jeopardy by the actions of 1 their older child.

the-viewAnd going back to The View… on that same show they were also discussing Governor Chris Christie and his weight.  Truthfully speaking I felt a bit offended.  They made it sound like ALL overweight people are unhealthy… which is definitely not the case.  And they also made it sound like only overweight people have health problems… and we all know that is definitely not true.

whoopi_goldbergBut what struck me as being somewhat bias was Whoopie’s response to the whole conversation.  She who for many years… if not still… has been known to be a very heavy smoker.  Even while listening to Whoopie speak you can hear the effect of those years of smoking upon her voice.  Yet she failed to mention that her own addiction… the 1 to cigarettes is even far more unhealthy and harmful…if not just as much so… as she talked about all of Christie’s weight wearing on his heart… and would hinder his ability to do the job of a President effectively.

According to the consensus cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of preventable death in the United States, accounting for close to 17 percent of total healthcare spending.  Cardiovascular issues include: hypertension, coronary artery disease, acute myocardial infarction, per-cutaneous coronary intervention, atrial fibrillation, and heart failure.

Cigarette smoking is a major contributor to theCigarette butts in an ashtray
three most prevalent causes of death in African Americans… heart disease, cancer, and stroke. All people, regardless of race and ethnicity, can become addicted to tobacco and can be damaged by the harmful effects of smoking.

So, what I am saying is this…  Governor Christie should not be singled out and declared unfit… or otherwise unhealthy simply because of his weight.  It brings about an astigmatism Man-Exercisingthat is many times placed upon all heavy-set people unjustly.  Causing many of them to not get health benefits… jobs… and oftentimes ostracized.  Which certainly is not fair and treads upon their civil rights.1263239297_fit_person

It is very likely that if Christie chooses to run again as Governor of New Jersey… tries to leap out into Presidential waters his weight is going to be continuously made a factor.  And that really should not be.

I recall that this guy wrote this book called ‘THE JOY OF JOGGING.’   He was an avid jogger.  By every regard he was considered in good health… and his body trim and fit.  One day while out jobbing the man dropped dead from a heart attack.  I imagesam not trying to poke fun here… but merely saying skinny or fat… tall or short… you are subject to drop dead or have a heart attack.  And yes, I would agree that having more weight upon your body does put stress upon your heart, but so doesn’t smoking or some of those other bad habits like excessive drinking or drug abuse… etc…

So, then why keep talking about this man… Christie like it just doesme resized...n’t happen to skinny or fit people.  Because that is a lie.

Now, I do not advocate being overweight.  Lord, no…  I have had my own issues and battles with it.  But I also can see where such a conversation is hurtful, demeaning and liable to bring about discrimination to those seeking  job placement… or whatever.2ab-the-bishop-wifecover

God bless…hope you enjoy your weekend.  I think I may get so much needed sleep… and edit some video projects this weekend.

And remember that Monday… this coming Monday is both President Barack Obama’s second inaugural… AND Dr. Martin L. King, Jr.’s birthday celebration.  Enjoy them both… and I am hoping to see you in D.C fomichelle-obama-inauguration-parade-GCr the festivities.  But if not please enjoy it for me too.

OBAMA WINNER! ROMNEY big LOSER…biggest EVER…

And they are hating it.  Hating that Obama won.  Before Ohio even reported their ballot count President Obama already had 282 electoral votes.  Making him the winner for his 2nd term as the President of the United States.  Ohio put the President at 303 electoral votes…and by the time Florida weighed in some 4 days later… Obama’s electoral count hit 332.  Romney was finished at 206.

So, yes… President Barack Obama won… and it was not through cheating or lying… or even by playing games with the American people.  He won by being real and being compassionate towards the people whom he has been elected to lead.  And by showing that even though the odds were against him he could make things happen… and start to change.

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-250_162-57548098/obama-wins-florida-final-electoral-vote-count-332-to-206/

How in the world do you throw away as much money as the people backing Mitt Romney on a horse race… and know in your hearts of hearts that your horse isn’t even that good?

You would have to be a fool.

And foolish they were.  All those people… Republicans who poured in a million… a hundred million… a few hundred thousands… or even 50¢ to back a political opponent as flawed as Mitt Romney.

What were they thinking?

They did it feeling they had no choice… and that Romney was going to be their ‘great white hope.’  Because when you get right down to it that is all this campaign meant to them.  It was not based upon issues… or substance… or even based upon truth for them.  No, sadly it was not… but a need to have the black man removed from the White House by any means necessary.  And if it took ever dime they had… they were willing to try and do it.

Personally, I hope to hear that a few of them have to file for bankruptcy… because they were… and are just a bunch of old racist idiots.  And many times the only way such people who think as they do ever learn is through their pocketbooks… or checkbooks… or by zeroing out their entire bank accounts.

Which some of them might have done.

One might be able to understand it if any of their fears… or concerns (if they had any legitimate concerns) were real or true.  But they were and are not.  President Barack Obama has been doing a good job… and this country is on its way back.  And greatly because of Obama’s efforts to keep at it regardless of the unnecessary blocking of his every move put up by the Republicans.

From de’ Donald Chump to Chuck ‘gimme a break’ Norris and a bunch of other fools… something was definitely wrong with their thinking.

If we are all Americans… then we should all want and desire the same things.  But this is not so.  There are people in this country who enjoy being considered ‘elitist.’   They strive on it.   They love this status of being better off than most… going where they want… able to buy whatever they want when they want etc…etc…   They live well… they drive well… and they play well.  And this is all that matters to them.

They are shallow people.  They live only for themselves.

Well, as a rule… they do.  But when a black man became President of the United States… Barack Obama… they viewed this as a step towards loosing more and more of their cherished status-quo.  Believing that soon all their exclusive little places would soon be overrun by the up-and-coming folk… folk like those who stepped into the White House 4 years ago.  Who by the way are the new elite… and the lily whites have found that hard to swallow.

They would have loved history to regard Barack Obama’s first term as President as a fluke.  But a second time around?

It can hardly ever go down in history as a ‘fluke.’   No, but rather a people’s choice.

No, Barack Obama’s winning the Presidency of the United States the first or the last time can hardly be considered either a ‘fluke’ or something which came by mere happenstance considering the sheer numbers of American who voted for him.  But then these belly aching people they have another problem.  And that is trying to determine among themselves who is or isn’t really American… a question they raise often when speaking about our President.

What they do not want to give President Barack Obama credit for is the thing which hurts them the most.  And that is that he is smart.

I am so sure that they all almost cried while watching the debates  when and even Romney had to admit, “Maybe, I can’t talk as good as him.”

What????

Did that white man say that… about a black man?

No wonder they didn’t want us to start learning how to read or write.  Why they kept our schools in run down structures.  And why back a few years ago none of our schools never had tracks or swimming pools… or libraries… of football fields… and many still do not.

So, now the winner has been declared.  It was Barack Obama… and we didn’t even have to wait until mid-night.  And when the announcements came in the news people said Obama didn’t even need Ohio to win… but he got it.  And he definitely by the time Florida’s vote count was finally release some 4 days later… he didn’t need that state to win either.  But he got it.

No wonder Romney was in such dismay.  The man thought he had it in the bag.  He was prepared to make his acceptance speech… but had never planned on making a loser speech.  The fireworks were set to go off… people prepped to run into the street cheering… confetti ready to fall… and the bottles of champagne had already been opened.  And then reality slowly began to seep in… they were loosing… loosing… lost.

The polls were wrong… but then how could they not help but to be wrong?

  • Because the so-called polls kept saying that Obama was behind Romney is popularity…   Now, that was a joke.
  • Behind Romney on where America stood…  Who thought of that?
  • Behind Romney in how America felt where they wanted this country to go…  Well, I guess the end of the election proved to to be wrong too.

And Romney and his people bet everything on what their pollsters were saying… and it all had to have been a lie.  Which is what the Romney campaign became known for… lying.  I guess all that lying caught up with them.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/decision2012/obama-has-slight-lead-in-electoral-votes-congress-expected-to-remain-status-quo/2012/11/03/6b7f2a3e-25cb-11e2-9313-3c7f59038d93_story.html

Now a whole week later they are still belly aching over it.  Romney is saying Obama would not won if he hadn’t given people gifts.  What gifts?

http://theweek.com/article/index/236469/why-mitt-romney-will-regret-blaming-his-loss-on-obamas-gifts-to-minorities

With all the money poured into Mitt Romney’s campaign he should never talk about anyone giving people gifts.  They gave him the give that was supposed to do what had done during the Republican primaries… and that was to ensure that he would be the last man standing.  But money could not do it.  And lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of money couldn’t do it either… and that is what they cannot believe.

But why can’t they just accept that their man was not good enough?

http://theweek.com/article/index/236211/president-obamas-victory-6-conservatives-behaving-like-sore-losers

Because it was never about being good.  It was about color… and it is still about color.

When Barack Obama won 4 years ago we began to hear about this seceding thang.  And now we are hearing it again.

It did not happen 4 years ago when they started churning the waters then with this craziness… and it is not going to happen now.  They just want to put it out their as a why of spotting Obama’s win.  But they are only showing their hand as the racists that they are.  And they are truly that.

Because if another person… somebody more like them.  Somebody who looked like them …had the same skin color like them ….  Now, that would have been acceptable and there would not have been no talk of seceding from the Union of the United States.  Without being a part of this federal government any state would soon fail.  First of all they woul2ab-the-bishop-wifecoverd have  to create all their own collateral… t distribute it  …and buying up all that ole dirty American money that claim they don’t want any more since the President is somebody who is non-white.  And before they knew it they would all be bankrupt… every state talking this craziness.   And they would all soon find themselves running back to Obama for help.

So, they… these spoil little brat Republicans… need to stop making themselves look like fools… and trying to incite people against President Obama and his Administration.  Because it won’t work.  And it especially won’t work because most of us… more than 54% of Americans all voted OBAMA …and not ROMNEY anyway.

So, grow up and stop winding you losers… you are making little children look good.

http://theweek.com/article/index/236486/are-fringe-republicans-trying-to-impeach-president-obama

UPDATE: Monday, November 19, 2012….  It is really a shame when public systems… such as a school district belittles itself in such a matter as this, as well in an attempt to degrade and belittle the President of the United States.  Years ago such a thing as this would never have been tolerated by any school system.  But things change… and particularly when it comes down to the color of skin.

This piece of paper was circulated in some local school by a teacher.

Worst than being  just a bunch of  bad losers… they are a bunch of the worst losers EVER.  They really should just grow up.

Thankful for the warmth coming back.  Was concerned about those without electricity and whose homes and apartments were damaged with Hurricane Sandy blew in.  But our God is sooooo good.  As strong and as powerful as Sandy was so many more could have been hurt or killed… and much more destroyed.

It is amazing to me that something of this nature had never happened to New York City before… being that New York sits on the Atlantic Ocean and is made up of nothing but a bunch of islands.

And another thought  came to my mind just now… as I was about to end this blog.  It is hard for me to believe that anyone would vote ‘yes’ on legalizing marijuana for recreational use… meaning like the way the teenage kids smoke it.

Now, we have to worry about not only drunken drinkers but those with ‘a buzz‘ from smoking a couple or few marijuana joints.  And the stuff does destroy brain cells.   Unbelievable…

Then I wonder how many states voted on doctors prescripting a pill for people to commit suicide.  I just have 1 question…

How is it that people are so pro-life… yet would vote ‘yes’ on distributing pills that people can kill themselves?

This is crazy…    We are beginning to live in some very crazy times.

Well, Veterans Day just passed… and we are now looking toward Thanksgiving.  Hope that you have an enjoyable… in case I fail to post anything between now then.

Enjoy your turkey day… and may God shine his light down upon you and your family this holiday season.

God bless… and I will see you the next time.  And if it is after Thanksgiving… believe me when I say ‘it was some good eating.’

ON POLITICS…THE DEBATES 2012…OBAMA/ROMNEY and BIDEN/RYAN…

To date we have had 2 debates leading up to the Presidential Election, one with Mitt Romney matching up against President Obama, and the other John Ryan vs. Vice President Joe Biden.  What struck me as interesting following these 2 debates was how much the following commentary varied.

It appeared to alright when Mitt Romney kept interrupting and overstepping  President Obama, but when Joe Biden interrupted Ryan all the spin doctors called Biden rude  and disrespectful.  And who could be more disrespectful than that rude loud mouth Rush Lim-whoever who had a nerve trying to act offended by Biden trying to set the record right over Ryan’s lies.

Why is it that when their guy does it is it okay?

But when the other side does it …it suddenly becomes an issue?

Because this is how the Republicans play.  It is harder to find anywhere, I suspect, a bunch of liars and cheaters as we have here in the United States, who look at other countries and think we are sooooo much better.  And to a regard we are… in fact in many ways we are.

But a liar and a cheap in any country is nonetheless a liar and cheap… and such people only mean to exploit and use their people and/or position they are lying are trying to cheat their way into for selfish and mostly self-serving advantage.

So, when Mitt Romney and  John Ryan lie about things that they honestly know to be untrue it is solely for the purpose of trying to instill fear into voters… just to get into the White House.  Fear and lies were tactics that the prior Republican knew very well and manipulated well for 8 years to almost the demise of this country.

The facts under President Obama speak for themselves and you really do not need a hard-sell car salesman to drive home that Obama regardless of opposition to stall him… hinder him… and anger him has made a difference.  And what a breath of fresh air.

Obama has made a difference… and it has been for our good and it has been a positive difference.  We are no longer sitting in the dark wondering if our Allies will come our rescue… or join us… or when the next airplane is going to fly into another building.  And not to mention having brought our men and women home from Iraq by ending that war as he promised.

But under George Bush this was not the case because Bush turned all our Allies against us… and worked diligently to ensure that America stayed fearful of another attack from some Al Qaeda force or forces.  And this mind you… you Republicans after your former Republican leader got us into senseless wars killings thousands of Americans, destroyed our economy, almost brought down our entire banking system… and that of the world too, and left us in tremendous debt which Republicans do not talking about.

In fact, Republicans try to pretend that George Bush ‘may’ have left a problem.

MAY have LEFT A PROBLEM????

George Bush left more than a problem and the Republicans… all of them help him to do it by backing and voting for everything that George Bush put upon the table that could be backed and/or voted for.  While failing to support Obama in any kind of way with the hope that Obama would fail.  But President Obama has not failed regardless of the attacks upon him, his record and his initiatives.

Obama got ObamaCare through the White House, he got Bin laden, unemployment is down to it’s all time low since the last 4 years.  And all of this without the aid of the Republicans, who have only sought to hinder every gesture by Obama to fix what Bush broke.

I will never forget how shortly after President Obama got into office that he sought to massive work done to the infrastructure of America, by having high-speed trains and railways put in around America, and offered money to states to get involved.  And there were certain Republican Governors who refused to accept the federal funds that Obama was offering to their states, because they preferred  see the plan sink rather that their state take the money that would have surely opened up thousands of jobs for people all across this country.

So, when you get right down to it… Republicans do not care really about the people who vote them into office.  They care mainly about their own personal interests, the few multimillionaires who assist in funding them and ‘their combined interests’ ….and they care about winning an election at any cost and regardless of how many lies they have to tell… and support in order to do it.

It is sad.  But it is American Politics as it stands today.

And the good guy comes in last.

During the debate between Mitt Romney and Obama… Obama did not try to over-talk Romney or continuously interrupt him, as Romney did when Obama or the moderator was speaking.  And at the end of the night the spin doctors were declaring what a marvelous debater Romney was and how he had won the debate.

Mitt Romney is far from being a great debater one needs only to look back at the debates he had when he was trying to get to the point where he now is.  During those debates where he and about 6 other Republicans were battling to become the candidate for the Presidency.  In those debates Romney became un-wired… unglued… and was outted as being a liar, a flip-flopper and a man who could not stand up against his own record as Governor of Massachusetts, where he sat doing nothing during that term but dreaming about running for President… which by the way was the only reason Mitt took up residence in Massachusetts.

Then there is the question of  Mitt’s religious beliefs.  It is a question which should hardly be left unchallenged since Romney religion believes that women have neither voice nor rights.  So, how could this man become the President of a country where women’s rights had been deemed the standard and model for women in countries like Iraq?

It would be a contradiction.

And based upon the fact that Mormon pretty much use woman as mere baby factories… of course issues such as2ab-the-bishop-wifecover women’s right to make decisions over their own bodies would be in total conflict with Mitt’s religious beliefs.  Or women holding any office of authority would also go against Mitt’s religious order.

And how about all those older men marrying those young pre-teen girls… and all their multiple wives?

In fact, when one sits down and thinks about how in the world could a man like Mitt Romney possibly govern or command a country such as the United States, when everything he has been taught and trained to believe is not of our world… but of the Mormon world… a world that operates in their hubs as they have designed it to operate.  And whose beliefs are not quite the same as ours… as it is a kind of reformed Christian thinking that can pretty much be called a cult.

I look forward to the next 2 debates.  Where Mitt will refused to address anything to put him by Obama and use tactics called-

‘Deny… deny…. deny… and run to another subject.”

It such be fun.

One final note…. it has always amazed me how a man… Bin laden who was supposedly on dialysis could have been running in and out of caves and dodging American intelligence all of these years?

Either Bush lied about that too  or the man was super-human.

Thanks again to those of you who have purchased my book, THE BISHOP’S WIFE.  As I said in my last blog it is amazing…  I cannot not believe how much my book is moving …and I thank you from the depths of my heart.  Please let me hear from you regarding my book.   I would love to know how you liked it… or didn’t like it… or whatever…. either way.

In fact, I have finally heard from someone.   Their comment was “Should have gotten a copy writer.”   Well, that comment bothered me because I believe in excellence.  If let me apologize  if you find this to be the case.  I do find books littered with errors difficult myself.

So, truly write me and let me know what you think?   It helps us as writers…   Well, it helps me.  Thank you… and sorry about any errors, typos… or text not properly or clearly written.  Forgive me…

And if you have yet to purchase my book I found this link over the internet via barnes&nobles.com where you can read bits of a couple of my chapters.

THE DNC…the Democratic National Convention…is Mitt Romney’s money clean…SERENA & the U.S. Open… Aretha…

Well, unlike 4 years ago I have yet to say much… if anything about this the 2012 Presidential Campaign.  It has not been  for the lack of any interest… more like a bit busy these days.

But 1 thing is for sure just as it was 4 years ago… I am still an Obama girl.

As in all campaigns there are some hits and misses… so too here.  But when you stack it up side by side of DNC vs. RNC… it was the Democratic National Convention hands down over the Republican convention.

Well, for 1 thing most of the Republican speech givers must have taken a score of creative writing classes… because for the most part most of their speeches were all… for lack of a better word… creative.  Very creative indeed.

Nothing like taking on a bit of self-responsibility…or in this case Party responsibility.   The Republican Party lacks the desire to do anything but win.  It does not matter to them how they win… they just want to win.

It must be sad that the only points you can give to your team are points that you have to make up.  Creative 1.

Creative 2… you forget any role in  anything.

Creative 3… and you pretend as though ‘we want to help you.’

Yeah, right…

When I think about Mitt Romney it is a marvel to me as to how he has gotten this far?

And THEY called Jim Kerry  the ‘flip-flop’ kid.  Romney is the master at it.  No, I take that back… because it seems to me Mitt does not master anything.  He just says 1 thing now… tomorrow he’ll say something that contradicts that… and say he didn’t say that of do that.  Or he just allows his money to speak for him or do what needs to be done… and he goes from this to that saying-

“Oh, well…”

And a lot of times when he gets caught at something and doesn’t know what to say… he just looks plain lost.

Either Mitt Romney suffers from the same thing as Clint Eastwood… or the last ship just pulled out of Pennsylvania Avenue.  Which happens to be a major street way… as in roadway… not a water way.  But to those suffering from some bout of disillusion… as a Mitt Romney or an aged Clint Eastwood it may  seem like a major water way.  Because the Republican Party for sure is up a creek without a paddle… with a man who seems to have nothing else going for himself except ‘money.’

I think that it is sad when you are asked to go to a convention and cheer for a man you don’t even like.

I must admit though that the Republicans who decided to throw in their hats into the ring as contenders to become the nominee for the Presidency on the Republican ticket were…  Well, they were slim pickings.  There is no other way to have put it.  And out of that bunch of slim pickings came Mitt Romney, who gave an acceptance speech as their choice for candidate to run against President Obama… not because Mitt came with a whole lot of credentials… but rather money.

In fact, Mitt Romney has no real credentials that would make him eligible for any job.  His stint as Governor of Massachusetts was a joke.  The man was hardly there… and when you boil it all down… Mitt Romney did absolutely nothing for Massachusetts.  Mitt Romney did  zero… a big fat NOTHING.

I love when people pick up and move to some place just to run for political office.  Hillary did hit when she and Bill departed the White House, moving to New York.  Jeb Bush did it when he up-rooted himself and family from Texas to go south to Florida… where they by the way fixed the 2000 Presidential Election so his brother could win the Presidency. But Mitt left whatever state he came from to move north to Massachusetts.

Massachusetts is known for a great jumping off point for potential wanna-be Presidents.  I cannot begin to tell you how many Presidential candidates have run from the state of Massachusetts… including Kennedy and Adams who both won.  Dukakis ran… that guy with the red hair ran… Ryan I think his name was.  And I don’t know how many others.

So, along came Mitt with his Presidential dreams… seeking to springboard himself into the number 1 seat in the White House from a state known to be a good launching pad… Massachusetts.  Mitt did not move there… or rather set up a residence there by mistake.

But he did NOTHING.

Now, we are into 2012 and Mitt is running for that mantle for his fireplace up in the Alps.  He likes titles… he wants people to call him ‘Mister President’ ‘Commander’… but he has not a plan… and we won’t take about ‘a clue.’   Which Mitt doesn’t have either.  He just has money… and lots of it.

Herein lays Mitt’s dilemma…  1. Why should any American citizen want to even consider a man… much less vote for him… who has money locked away in a place-

Excuse me… I meant locked away in ‘not in a place’… but in an entirely different country other than his own… and paying no taxes on it?

2. Why does Mitt not want to divulge how much money he has?

3. Could Mitt’s money be bad?

Well, the only people I know…   I mean whom I have heard about who do that with money who are criminals… big time drug dealers, thieves and robbers etc…

So, I’m wondering which 1 …or if Mitt Romney is them all?

Because if the money is clean… legit… then I can’t understand the problem Mitt is having releasing financial his information?

I mean we all know that there are rich people in this world… and some a lot richer than others.  But they do not appear to be evading the issue of their net worth.  So, why is Mitt?

You know when you live in the hood and hear all of those stories about how ‘the real’ drug dealers are not the ones walking the streets day and night trying to sell the stuff.  That is really the truth.  It is those big time Wall Street type… the type that have big jobs, lots of money and live in penthouses… who can afford the secret air strips and pilots it take to fly that stuff in.  But the drugs never actually touch their hands …they just finance it.

They own the planes that fly the drugs in, the places where the drugs are cut or cooked, packaged and then disbursed.  They reap all the real benefits of the drug trade… (if you want to call it that) but none of its negative publicity, images, hardships or dangers.   The money goes to them… the real money… and they sit on top of the whole sha-bang looking as clean as a whistle.

So, Mitt where did you get all your money from?

I am more curious than ever… because try so hard to hide something there is usually a very good reason.  And when you are dealing with a guy who seems to have an endless supply of money… such as a Mitt Romney… I think somebody should be asking him some intense questions about his finances.

Out of  6 or 8 other Republicans who ran along with Mitt to become President… Mitt just simply out spent them all.  He had more money to spend than any of them.  Which is the only reason Mitt Romney happened to get this far.  And it has been his money that has kept him for his entire political life.

The Olympics take money… you can’t be a promoter of something like that without some really big capital to even consider financing it.  Running in all the political campaigns for as many years as Mitt has …it had to cost him some major capital.

Good investments are 1 thing… but lots of people have made good investments and evidently do have what Mitt has by way collateral.

Mitt just how did you get all your money?

Rick Santorum vowed that he was staying in the race… that Romney’s money was not going to force him out of the race.  But in the end even poor Rich just could not stand the test of time.  He simply did not have that Mitt had… by way of money.

So, 1 by 1 all the other GOP would-be nominees bailed out.  Mitt Romney it can easily be said won by  default.  And it happen because of a money deficit on the other’s sides.  They just could not hang with Mitt and all the money he was spending.

Now, it’s Obama and Mitt.  And I will say it… hands down its going to be Obama.

A Paul Ryan/Mitt Romney ticket cannot compare to an Obama/Obama/Biden ticket in anybody’s book.

Though I realized upon hearing about that HBO had a show about a Mormon family… from the moment I heard about it I knew what that program’s purpose was all about.  It was designed to show America that Mormon families are just like everybody else.  But they are not.  And a show created to sugar coat real Mormon life …and designed to desensitize Americans to the real ways, religion and practices of Mormons was all done to make way for  a Mitt Romney  win into the White House.

That show was as much a ploy… and I should political ploy whose purpose was as much a form of propaganda movies during the Cold War.  It came about to get people to feeling and saying-

“Oh, they are just like us.”

And if anyone looked real deep… they might even find out that it may have been financed either part or in whole by somebody tied to Mitt Romney or by Romney himself.

Inside the Mormon world …their close-knit families… their families are not just like ours.  Their families look nothing like ours.  They live by entirely different set of rules… and they believe differently.

Their worship is not the same… because  their root beliefs are different.  And their concept of family is different.

It is funny that when you google ‘what do Mormons believe’… it is interesting that there is no clear answer. But a variety of varied responses… like they believe in God, Jesus and the Holy Ghost.  And so does the devil.

Okay, then maybe you should ask what do they practice religiously?

Multiple wives… women who live their lives in total submissiveness… with no power and no voice for 1, 2 and 3.

I am thankful that my God gave me the freedom to be more than a baby factory…not to be just somebody who turned out child after child.  Because that is pretty much the lives of Mormon women.  It is a man’s world as James Brown used to sing in his song by the same title.  The men within their group love that… so much so that age means nothing to them in consider to their pleasure and choice of wives.

So, I really do not understand any man who is supposedly running for the top political position in this country ….who does his banking in foreign banks… in order to hide his money.  And I do not understand any man or woman who would want to lift up a man to rule in this country …who belongs to an organization that is very much a cult…  and where the spirit and minds of women is stripped from them.

Came across a quick note about Patti LaBelle… and I was surprised to read it.  I never thought she cussed or became so enraged that she would totally loose it.  Never really seemed to be the type.  And I must say that I have met her… and I found her to be quite nice.

It all happened in a confrontation with a woman… who I believe may have been pregnant… if I remember the story right.  But was outside of a building that Patti was either entering or exiting and something or other happened that caused Patti to show a side of herself that I never would have never thought in  her.

The confrontation cost Patti $100,000 in an outside of court settlement.  Can’t imagined what happened that would have been worth that kind of payout… but Patti must have gone berserk… when she threw water on the woman and a few choice words.

Perhaps Patti reflected on it and felt so real bad about her poor behavior… and the possible shame of having this type of case go to court where people just like me… would have never thought Patti could have done such a thing… stare at her with their mouths wide open in disbelief.

But sometimes it is just a matter of it being a bad day… a very bad day.   I do not know if you have ever had 1… but I have.  The incident occurred while I was teaching in high school.  My son had done something which had really upset me… and here came this student that had been acting stupidly in my class.  Earlier in the day the actions of this boy I had let go by… I was being professional and I had not yet spoken to my son.  But by noon I heard of something about my son that had worked me up… and here came this boy… and he either said something to me or did 1 last thing… and I said to him-

“I’m so mad I could leap up in the sky and kick you right in the face.”

It is when I realized that I  was not cut out to be teacher material.  So, when the school department tried to offer me another contract to teach the following year I said no.  Besides I wanted to work on shooting my film and that had not become my focus… and goal.

Now, it wasn’t that I couldn’t handle it… teaching… or that I did not have control of my classes.  No, nothing like that.

In fact, quite the opposite… because in my classes I ruled.  And I was not very tolerant of anyone who did not come into my class to work.

Students respected me and I respected them.  But on that day… that boy crossed me at the wrong moment… and all my professionalism left me.  When I went into class the next day…. I will tell you this…  I was afraid his parents were going to be there waiting on me.  I would have if my child had come home and told me a teacher had said such a thing to them.  But evidently that boy never told it to his parents.

So, what I am saying here is that there are times when any 1 of us can lose it.  But the difference is our names are not Patti LaBelle.  And that does make a difference.  But does not any less make such times less embarrassing… or just as shameful.

Talking about shameful.  Happen to come across this picture of Patti and wondered if she is going through mid-life crisis?

I do not believe this looks decent even when the kids dress like this.  So, you know seeing this photo was a thumb down from me.

It Patti is not going through some type of mid-life crisis… between this dress and her law suit actions …I do not know what is going on?   I cannot figure another reason for Patti flashing as much flesh as this.  Personally, I like the classy Patti better.  I really think it is ridiculous when the young girls do this… and cannot understand any woman… older woman wanting to follow what the kids do.

When I heard Jesse Jackson answering a question about his son recuperating  in an interview recently… I thought that it was that his son had had a stroke or something.   The way that Jesse spoke about it and how he was smiling I would have never known anything otherwise.

I would never have thought that the Senator or Congressman… whatever he is… Jesse Jackson, Jr was in rehab due to a problem with drugs.  He always seemed to be so on top of it… sharp …clear and on point about what he was doing… saying and about his service to the people he was voted to represent.

Hard to believe.  But we pray that it all comes back together for him.  And if it was just an illusion… that he gets it together for real.

Well, Serena is tearing up the tennis courts in New York at the U.S. Open.  It is win…win ….win.  And that she is … and she appears to be more determined to continue to do so.

Serena is going after her opponents with more power… and her mental game is so strong that the other female tennis players might as well not even walk onto the courts to face her.

Serena is slaughtering them.  One behind the other Serena is shutting  everybody down… and proving in such a big way… and without a doubt she is #1.  Whether they say so or not.

Serena Williams is #1 in the world.  The #1 female athlete.  Highest grossing woman in sports …and the least celebrated.  But she is slamming it home… ‘I’M #1!’    Respect me… fear me… and and try to beat me if you dare.  And she is menacing threat because she is relentless… and packs as much physical strength as she does mental power.

And I noticed that ain’t nobody said nothing about Serena’s hair.  Oh, I forgot she’s from Compton.

UPDATE: SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2012…Well,  she is taking it home.  Serena won it all once again… not only the top women’s trophy …but the big check that went along with it.  She was a little more challenged in her final game, 6-2, 2-6, 7-5, but rose to meet the challenge.

I guess you could say-

“Another one bites the dust.”

Just 1 more thing before I close out.  Lady ‘Re became Dr. ‘Re this past week receiving an honorary doctorate from Princeton.  Good for her…I know she was overwhelmed.

Proud of this diva…for 1 thing because she never did what a lot of other artist have done or are trying to do.  She has never forsaken her base of fans trying to seek after something else.  Because ‘Retha already knew she had what she had… and if that wasn’t good enough too bad.  (I’m smiling because I know how Aretha thinks)  That’s what makes her the Queen…and she is second to none.
